Snoop on emails in free spam simulator PanComOSa

And I thought spam filters worked based on algorithms. There are simply too many sent for people to be employed to check them all, individually, I thought. According to PanComOS I was wrong. You play as a new employee tasked with checking outgoing emails—are they legit, or are they spam? Genuine messages get dragged to the 'Send' icon, while spam goes in the trash where it belongs. It's a bit like Papers, Please, but light-hearted in tone, and with actual aliens instead of illegal aliens.

Minecraft Festival is the latest event postponed due to coronavirus

In recent years Minecon Earth has been an online event, rather than the meatspace gathering Minecon used to be. This year a return to the real world called Minecraft Festival was planned, with tickets about to go on sale on Friday. It's now the latest gaming event to be postponed due to the coronavirus.

Post-apocalyptic tactics mixed with MMO Dreadlands comes to Early Access this week

Turn-based tactics game Dreadlands is coming this week, on March 10th. It’s a game set in a “colorful apocalypse” where you command a gang of outlaw weirdos to hunt down and—I can only assume—eat radioactive rocks to make yourself awesome. It’s a pretty standard tactics game, with turn-based shooting battles and a strategic metagame to frame them, but it has a neat twist: you can fight other people. We first got a look at that system when Blackfox Studios announced the game last year, but now you’ll get to see it in action. Notably, Dreadlands is published by Fatshark, who also publish the excellent Warhammer: Vermintide.

BannerPage is a dedicated enhancement mod for Mount & Blade: Warband

Thinking about a trip back into Mount & Blade: Warband ahead of the Mount & Blade 2 release later this year? BannerPage has you covered. It’s a huge enhancement mod for MBW building on the popular Native mod, targeting where “Native MBW is thin and [aiming] to significantly improve areas in which [the] game hasn’t aged well. Bannerpage overhauls the game’s graphics first and foremost, but deepens systems and improves their interactions with a host of other improvements. It also adds big changes like seafaring, with trade and battles. There are also bridge battles, which are horrible in a good way. They’re even more of a meat grinder than a siege, to be honest. I love them.

 Warframe, the world’s greatest game about magic space ninjas, is now seven years old. So naturally it is celebrating.
