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.…

Perhaps there's no way to chop out a chunk…

Star Quality? X3: Terran Conflict footage

I didn't really get on with the X games. Even by my high tolerances for videogame tedium among the stars, X3 seemed to be taking the piss a little.

I do feel like I should go back, and plenty of my space-gaming…

X3: The Terran Conflict announced

News reaches us that Egosoft have announced the fourth chapter of their X: Beyond the Frontier series. It's called X3: The Terran Conflict. While details are sparse - the screen's from the original X3 - the lack of a "4" implies this is a standalone expansion "thing" rather than a true sequel. Egosoft have promised more missions than ever before. This is good. X fans…
