Genesis Alpha One Review

Deep Space Clonialism

HIGH The minimal HUD and use of terminals instead of menus.

LOW Explorable planets feel unbelievably empty.

WTF Everyone and everything is a literal clone, including the player.


The Long Journey Home Review

Star Control To Major Tom

HIGH Learning more about each alien race.

LOW Landing on literally any planet that isn’t harmless.

WTF In this game, Farscape is more dangerous to live in than Andromeda.


Warframe Update: Mask Of The Revenant

On September 13, Digital Extremes released new content on PS4 for their hit MMO, Warframe. This update focuses on the new addition to the cast, the playable character Revenant. A new gun and a few minigames came bundled in the patch as well. The patch is available for free to all players.


Starpoint Gemini Warlords Review

 Second Star To The Right, Straight On To My Space Station

HIGH It splits the difference between Freelancer and Masters of Orion

LOW …by building one game and grafting it onto the spine of the other.

WTF Awkward mouse and keyboard controls for a PC exclusive.


The Station Review

Love At First Contact

HIGH The view from the glass-floored space station lounge.

LOW The way the game cheats to hide its big secret.

WTF I guessed the ending roughly 90 seconds into the opening movie.


Cryptark Review

Rogues… In… Spaaaaaaaace….

 

HIGH Wiping the Cryptark out by firing my super-weapon over and over…

LOW …after having the game crash the first time I tried to do that.

WTF Enemies can fly through walls now? That seems fair.


Dreadnought Preview

When I was growing up, everyone wanted to be a TIE Fighter or X-Wing pilot. Not me. I always had my eye on the larger ships — I wanted to be in command of the Star Destroyer. Those mammoth vessels were crewed by a few hundred people and bristled with enough firepower to annihilate a small fleet. The developers at Yager seem to have shared my affinity for capital ships in their upcoming game, Dreadnought.
