8 months ago I showed you some battle of Starfarer. Since then it has evolved with a new campaign layer very similar to Mount & Blade. You start up with small ships and then end up with a big fleets after hours and hours of playing. Right now there is only one solar system available and a couple factions and ships available as well. Each of those ship can be customized to your liking. So while it’s an alpha still the game is taking shape and look promising.

Starfarer is an indy space combat kind of game, in 2D. It show that 2D still have a great fun value. It’s currently in an alpha state but you can have access to it if you preordered it. So far you only have access to a few scenario and random missions. I think that this game was developped by a one man team so far and while it’s very early in the development. The gameplay is a mix of action and tactic. If you make a mistake you can be owned easily by one groups of fighter that will strike you at the right time. Each ships has strong and weak point forcing you to adjust to you enemies and learn how to maximize your ship potential.
This game is also very easy to mod and for example the background is a custom image and i simply used it to replace the regular background as a test. So ultimately you can customize the game easily.

X3 Terran Conflict Gameplay 1 is a combat video from a game where you don’t actually fight that much overall. X3 Terran Conflict is mostly a game about adventure, exploration, trading with risk of ending up in a fight. While in this fight I manage to destroy lots of ships i could have die many time if I had a weaker ship and in this game you learn quickly not to engage enemy fleet. But in this case I have the help of couple fighters and 2 covert. So I had plenty of decoy and cover to survive the mighty Xenon fleet.
Hey people, its Spartan, and I’m here with some gameplay footage of Sins of a Solar Empire. I really like this game, because well, it takes FOREVER to win, and the AI actually puts up a fight. It has a few diplomacy options, allowing you to take the peaceful path or you can be like me and almost everyone else out there and stare in awe as your ships bomb your enemies colonies with nuclear weapons. Its your pick. The ability to create such huge ships and empires makes this game all the more interesting as there is a bit of micromanaging, but not enough to ruin the game. The combat looks fairly well, even though when the enemy isnt strong enough it gets a bit boring. All in all, I would recommend this game to anyone who loves massive armies and controlling empires WITHOUT having to click that annoying turn button.
Yes… Eve Online, an MMORPG space game, is about to get a LOT better looking. And when i say A LOT, i mean… This game has become Surreal. Really, I’m speechless. I played EVE a while back, and took a break. But when i got the chance to play on the “Singularity” test server, and see Trinity first hand, i was just utterly blown away. Crysis, which appears to be the best looking game today, is DWARFED by the object detail of Trinity. And, holy hell, my frame rate STILL hangs around 50-60 on max detail! Trinity will be available on the main server on December 5th, so i recommend playing a trial account to see it, and trust me, you’ll understand why I’m so amazed. A long time ago, when i thought of what games would look like in the future, i pictured life- like, extremely detailed objects. And, my friends, that future is here :) I put together a quick video just to show some of the graphics, enjoy!
I posted this video of Sins of a Solar Empire a couple of days ago. It basically 20 min of gameplay compacted in 3:15 mins. Basically it shows the attack on the last planet of my home solar system and the invasion of the next Solar system 10 min away. It’s clear the enemies did not expect me but they had a couple of Fighters base. The video wasn’t really created to fit with a specific song, but I choose that one from youtube audio swap thing and it seem to fit well. So enjoy either the game or the music ;)
Today, for a change here are some video from Sins of a Solar Empire Beta 1 that came out last day for those who pre-ordered it. This is a really nice game so far with big battle, diplomacies, technology exploration, etc.
You can zoom from planet sector to the galaxy really easily and as empires grow bigger. The fleets follow in size. Since it’s still a beta and the final version won’t come out before the end of the summer note that it’s more then likely the game will be improved on many aspect in the future. So enjoy the early preview :)
This battle was easy since it was mostly a finishing move against the faction. There was many fighter around but not that many frigate or capital ship.
This one is actually the second attack on this planet, my first attack was exterminated by a crazy number of fighter that destroyed my 4 capital ships and a couple of frigate. The annoying part of this is that since the resource are getting low I had to buys on the market most of the metal and crystal to build ships, that was expensive! but here is the resulting battle.
I recently got the game Homeworld 2…which I’m bad at…The whole space RTS thing is very new to me and I am just trying to get used to it.Well I decided to make a montage so I could cut out the bad parts(at least I’m honest).Here is my first Homeworld 2 montage called “Fighters in Action”.
and Here is the second: “Fleet Ships in Action”
Well right now I am playing Freespace 2 and really enjoying it. I will be sure to put some gameplay footage up later but this time I am only putting up a few screenshots I thought looked cool. If you want to try this game it is completely free so I recommend giving it a try. I also recommend downloading the ISO of the game from nukelol.com because I had trouble with the other types of files. Enjoy my screenshots!
