The Sims 4 Coming In September
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Maxis and EA have announced that The Sims 4, the next installment in the popular life sim series, will be coming to Mac and Windows PCs September 2. The new title will be a single-player offline experience and will include new tools to aid gamers in personalizing their Sim world.

The Sims 4 takes this best-selling franchise to an entirely new generation. Our new Sims have been reinvented into smarter, emotionally rich characters who come to life through a combination of their free will and player direction. Players control the mind, body, and now the heart of these new Sims and bring their stories to life with richness and texture that has never before been possible in the franchise. Pair these revolutionary new Sims with brand new creative tools that are powerful, tactile, and easy to use, and the all-new Gallery, which allows players to access other playersí The Sims 4 user generated content directly from the game, and the result is a stimulating new gameplay experience that powers a new era for The Sims.

Xenonauts Launches
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Goldhawk Interactive recently announced the release of the X-Com: UFO Defense inspired Xenonauts. The game challenges players to fend off alien invasion by building bases, recruiting soldiers, researching new technology, and facing off against alien invaders in the sky and on the ground.

This is it, folks: Xenonauts has now officially left Early Access and become a complete game after five years of development! I hope you have as much fun playing the game as we have had making it!

We will of course continue to fix any crashes or game-breaking bugs that rear their ugly heads - though we've fixed all the common ones already. Let us know if you do find crashes.

We're not planning any more gameplay updates to the game at this point (although we may consider a V1.1 patch in a few months), so our current focus has moved to adding Steam Workshop support so the busy modding / mapping community on our forums can reach a wider audience.

Learn more at the links below.
