Buy ’em up: Green Man Gaming summer sale launches

As summer rolls on, shorts get shorter, tops get scarcer, corner shop Curly Wurlys get goopier, and the video game sales, oh the video game sales keep on coming. Green Man Gaming sat in the shade sucking on a Calippo as other digital stores held their summer sales but today they stood up and strode into the scorching sun with a determination that says "I…

Feature: "Ground control to Major Brendan"

Premature Evaluation: Stable Orbit

Every week we launch Brendan through the atmosphere into the cold, dark void of early access. This time, the realistic space station (mis)management of Stable Orbit [official site] My first space station is called the Floppy Floater.

A Second-Hand Market For Download Games?

A big part of the industry's support, such as it is, for game download services such as Steam, GamersGate et al is that it kills the second-hand/trade-in market. A sale's a sale, a customer's a customer, and shops don't end up with endless dusty racks of second-hand copies of Call of Duty: World At War that only confused mothers try to buy when their kid…
