Space Marines Invade Battlefleet Gothic: Armada Today

As if space strategy Battlefleet Gothic: Armada [official site] wasn’t grim enough, Space Marines will be entering the orbital fray today. In addition to the Tau, which should be added to Battlefleet sometime later, both races are available for free to people who already own the game or who buy it before the end of the day. They’ll then be available thereafter as extra DLC for everyone else.

Space-Honk Space-Honkkk! Space Run Galaxy Released

E what now? No no, come on, get out of here with your “this game is expected to launch in late 2019.” I don’t care what The Man says. Reader, I should mention that I’m flanked by two hired goons named – sorry, I feel awful for not asking: what are your names? – Edith and Duncan, lovely to meet you, from Big Video Games. The Man has told them to “show her what happens to people who post about games already out.”

But for you, reader dear, I shall risk life, limb, and possible friendship – like, you seem cool, Edith, and I won’t hold my impending finger-breaking against you so if you wanna hang out some time…? – to tell you that Space Run Galaxy [official site], a tower defense-ish game about building a beefy space-truck to haul space-cargo, is out now.

Feast Your Fangs On Vampyr’s First Footage

Johnathan Reid, the protagonist of upcoming action-RPG Vampyr [official site], is having a torrid time. As if fighting in The Great War wasn’t hard enough, he’s returned to a broken London that’s overcome with Spanish Flu. He’s a surgeon, which means he’s on the front lines of the epidemic, and he’s only just now discovered that he might be a vampire. In a job that deals directly with open wounds. Sheesh, that’s a moral meltdown right there.

After a smattering of screenshots, developers Dontnod – of Remember Me and Life is Strange fame – have now shown Vampyr’s first in-game footage at E3.

Farming Simulator 17 Sells A Dream

The news is unbearable; I don’t want to look at or even think about anything involving shooting people today. Combing through the wreckage of E3, I stumble across a CGI trailer for Farming Simulator 17 [official site]: a tranquil, unspoilt, not-actual-footage world of fields and ploughs and big blue skies, and it’s like a window into a better world that isn’t filled with horror.

Celestial Service: New Space Run Galaxy Trailer

What frustrated me most about Space Run was that it failed to deliver on its initial potential. Like Adam, I was taken by its nuanced slant on tower defence, as I built weapon-heavy space-trucks and hauled cargo containers to and fro hostile intergalactic thoroughfares, however I felt it became too repetitive after its first few hours. There was a good game lurking in there somewhere, but I felt Space Run just couldn’t realise it.

Its follow-up, Space Run Galaxy [official site], has released its first trailer and I’m starting to think it might right its forerunner’s wrongs. Hop below for a look.

Relationship Goals: The Technomancer Gets New Trailer

The Technomancer [official site], for those of you unaware, is the incoming Mars-flung sci-fi RPG from developers Spiders that’s closing in on a June launch. What we’ve seen so far looks pretty promising, yet the French outfit’s back catalogue of ambitious but wonky titles haven’t exactly wowed players or critics in the past post release. The latest trailer covers how companions will function in the latest trip to the Red Planet which, again, sounds impressive. So why can’t I shake the feeling that history might be repeating itself? Before we continue, here’s that trailer:

Act Of Aggression: Reboot Edition Reworks Eugen’s RTS

Eugen Systems have made a small name for themselves with strategy games like R.U.S.E. and the Wargame trilogy, but never had a real breakout hit. Lately they’ve been busy reworking and polishing their last game, Act of Aggression [official site], with the aim of making its multiplayer more like “old school” RTSs. This reworking is now live as the ‘Reboot Edition’ through a free update, though the original version is still playable for folks who prefer it.
