Greetings Citizens and Civilians, you’re tuned to episode 135, of Guard Frequency — the best damn space sim podcast ever! This episode was recorded on Friday 26th August 2016 and released for streaming and download on Tuesday, August 30th 2016 at GuardFrequency.com [Download this episode]
Kinshadow’s back again this week and joins Ostron and Geoff to bring you your weekly dose of space-sim goodness. In this week’s Squawk Box, it’s been another rough week for space-ka-teers around the world. On the Flight Deck we see what news has landed from your favourite space-sims as we cover:
- Cargo mechanics, the Dragonfly and the Ursa Rover coming soon in Star Citizen
- Tales from around the Milky Way as we find out what the players have been up to in Elite: Dangerous
- More news of the refund requests to Hello Games… which should probably be called Goodbye Games at this point; and the latest update to No Man’s Sky
- And a new game mode for Descent: Underground
Next, we debate free to play, and finally we tune into the Feedback Loop and let you join in on the conversation.
- SpaceX explosion: what you need to know
- OMG, we were wrong! It was Earth all along!
- Jupiter’s Azure Poles
In case you missed something…
A quick note for those of you who may have been away from the show for a few weeks and are noticing a distinct lack of dulcet British tones and legal precision. Tony and Lennon have both reluctantly reduced their involvement in regular broadcasting with Guard Frequency. Lennon’s situation has forced him to take an extended, continuous break. Tony is running for State office in Kansas, and his campaign duties mean he can’t commit to regular recording times. Ostron is serving as Lennon’s replacement, and during the times that Tony is unavailable, Mr Kinshadow will be our go-to replacement. In general, though, you’re probably going to hear a greater variety of voices going forward as people adjust their schedules. Geoff, of course, isn’t going anywhere.
This Week’s Community Questions
- Are free accounts in games a good way to attract players who might otherwise be skeptical? Maybe you think it just provides an avenue for abuses and exploitation of in-game mechanics?
