Steam Charts: Christmas Miracle Edition

I don't what is this? How many? Are we sure we're in the right charts? This is definitely the Steam Charts, where the mad-brained broken people just buy the same four games over and over and over? Because something is up. People have only bought the same three games over and over!

X4: Foundations review

But any actual fine detail is lost in sheer gawking wonder at just how big and amazing everything is. From minute one, the game offered me a lot of choices, but turned out as evasive as a buttered rat when it…

Steam Charts: I Was On Holiday Last Week Edition

Egosoft's long-running space sandbox sim series will return with X4: Foundations on November 30th, the developers announced today.

X4: Foundations revisiting and expanding spacebasics

Spaceship explore-o-trade-a-shoot-y-sandbox series X will return revamped and expanded with X4: Foundations [official site], developers Egosoft announced over the weekend. They've muttered for years about what they'd fix and changed after 2013's disappointing X: Rebirth and lawks, it looks like they've learned a lot. Spacemen will once again be able to fly every ship in the game rather than being locked to one, for starters.…
