StarMade Preview – SPAAAAAACE!!

 

Ah.  It’s good to be back in the saddle and today I bring news of my week playing the Steam Greenlight hopeful StarMade.  “But what IS StarMade?  Can I spread it on my toast?” you may ask in a curiously attractive, yet nasal voice.  Well, beautiful internet person, let me tell (and show) you all about it after the obligatory bump.

Endweek News – Assassin’s Creed lawsuit not quite finished yet, What is this E3 thing?, a new Gears of War and some truly awesome videos!

It is that time of week where once again I delve into the grim and gritty business of video game news. It’s a cut-throat world out there, a game eat game world. A world in which only the fittest and most awesome games survive. And Call of Duty of course (OOoooh! ZING!). But seriously, it’s not really that bad (well not for everyone) and we’ve got some pretty interesting bits and pieces of news to regale you with today. Also I want to make it clear that the above video is indeed sort of relevant to this post as you shall find out later (if you read through this!)

In case you missed it there was a rather cringeable moment when Jonathan Ross came on absolutely drunk as anything!

Although, I will try and keep that to a minimum because Tim usually gets on my case when I do stuff like that… Continue reading

Master Chief new look

Just a quick shout out to you lot that THIS is the new look for Master Chief in Halo 4 this year. Apparently his suit design in the trailer wasn’t final, well these new figurines show off his PROPER new suit design.

343 Industries boss, Frank O’Connor, has previously said that there are reasons for MC’s new suit but they have yet to divulge any of them. Looking goooood though.

 

Skyrim Creation Kit release date

All you would be modders and designers can mark Tuesday down in your diary as Bethesda is releasing there Creation Kit Software to the public on Steam. When it goes live you can download the pack from the tools section on Steam and mod and change the game to your hearts content.

Plus there is apparently, according to Pete Hines (marketing guy for Bethesda), a secret surprise in the kit for anyone who wants to use it. Interesting, I wonder what that’s going to be…
