Idiots in Space - Part 1

about X hours ago from

It's been sometime since we've looked at Pulsar: Lost Colony; the indie co-op space exploration game on Steam. The game has seen consistent updates now over its life, in fact the developers have called the latest build version 9.5 - and its still technically in early access. That said the game has definitely come a long way in the last 9 months.Check out our stream recap below; you can see a lot of the great new features that we thought were missing previously. There's a much more structured approach to missions, a ton more dialog and decisions to make, and there's also the blind warp jump option. Warning -  bad things happen when you blind jump.

Lead and Gold Developers Giving Away 100,000 Copies for Free

Back in 2010, developer Fatshark released an old west themed third person shooter called Lead and Gold: Gangs of the Wild West. It was met with plenty of nodding heads, but as the wheels of time turned the game was all but forgotten. Now, Fatshark has decided to spice the summer up by doing the digital equivalent of throwing a pile of money in the air and watching it rain. 100,000 free copies of Lead and Gold are up for grabs!Before you scrunch your nose up and say something like "But isn't Lead and Gold a competitive shooter?", we'll point out there is a simple co-op mode in the game. Gold Fever pits a team of up to 6 players against endless waves of AI enemies as you try and score as many bags of gold as possible. When your team dies, it's game over. It's not much in the way of cooperation, but hey, it's a free wild west game that feels a bit like Team Fortress 2, so who's gonna complain?

Console Version of Necropolis Delayed

Harebrained Schemes' Necropolis will be a bit delayed making its debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Anyone looking forward to playing the dungeon diver on the consoles will need to wait "several weeks."When it was announced back in March that the title would be making its way onto consoles, the news also revealed that the PC version would be delayed so it could be enjoy a simultaneous release with the console version. The best laid plans of mice and men, and all that. There hasn't been any formal posting of the delay from the developer on the Necropolis site, but Eurogamer heard from a spokesperson for the studio that the delay is "absolutely the right decision, and that additional time will make for an even better Necropolis for consoles AND for PC."It's possible that there were some bugs detected in the game that needed to get worked out before it could be approved for release on the consoles. These bugs could more easily get patched out on PC and, therefore, wouldn't affect its release.

Xbox One Version of ARK: Survival Evolved Gets Trees, Big Herbivore

about X hours ago from

Microsoft's Ultimate Games Sale is still underway for a bit longer, and one of the titles you can pick up on the cheap is ARK: Survival Evolved. The title is still some ways out from seeing a full release, but the Xbox One version of the game was updated last week to add in a new biome and a new dinosaur.The new Redwood Biome is, as you might expect, filled with the huge trees that were the setting for a certain Lucas film. Much like the furry inhabitants of that area, you, too, can build your own tree-based cities with wood and metal platforms, buildings, and retractable ladders. Of course, if you manage to tame the newly added (and massive) Titanosaur, you don't need to worry about those treetop dwellers raising the defenses; you can just march on in and do what you want.VG 24/7 has the full patch notes of what all was included in the most recent Xbox One update.

about X hours ago from

We've become a bit used to the idea that in the event of a zombie apocalypse, we humans will survive. I mean, we're humans, of course we will! ... Right? Two-man development team Aniode has a slightly different idea in Nature's Zombie Apocalypse. Humans are out and the animals of the world are taking up arms to take back the planet.The title actually hit Steam Early Access last June and included eight player local co-op from the start. Two weeks ago, they patched the game to include online co-op so you can team up with friends in different area codes. The title is a twin-stick shooter with a variety of weapons to use and animals from which to select. There's also a "Confetti Mode" to turn off the blood and gore and make it a little more kid-friendly.The game is currently out on PC via Steam Early Access, and it is slated for an Xbox One release later this year.
