- Elite Dangerous dropped another dot-patch yesterday and a dot-dot patch today. And we gave them some grief over the “many fixes and improvements,” but in all fairness, there were 160 items in the patchnotes. Also, just in case you were wondering, there really aren’t any plans for ship interiors – for REAL, this time. And FDev gave a little earnings preview along with an announcement of a Jurassic World sequel. Finally, there’s some new lore stuff, and really they mean it, NO ship interiors!
- Star Citizen announced that it was Alien Week and is celebrating by…. well…. go on…. Guess! That’s right, another concept sale. This one is another cargo ship like the Banu Merchantman except it’s made by the Xi’an, and it looks like Starscream from the Transformers. And also, it transforms. Finally, it’s that extra special “board meeting” time of the year – and we know this because Sandi Gardiner tweeted about it. And also the crowdfunding counter went crazy again.
- Descent Underground is gearing up for the next round of legal maneuvers and it looks like we may get to know part of the whole story… eventually.
- Have you given up space fights for ground fights?
- Now that Star citizen has ships inspired by Babylon 5, Transformers, Macross, Star Wars, Elite Dangerous, and EVE Online, what franchise should CIG pay “homage” to next?
