6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Paradox Interactive recently revealed Ancient Space, a new story-driven real-time strategy (RTS) game from developer CreativeForge Games, will be coming to Mac and Windows PCs this fall. The single-player RTS puts players in command of a fleet conducting scientific mission on the edge of the known universe, charting what lies beyond in ‘The Black Zone.’

Ancient Space mixes an engrossing single-player campaign story with time-honored RTS gameplay for a suspenseful experience. Mission objectives are many, varying from exploration to stealth, from assault to defense and more. A rich and compelling story will guide the player as they build and upgrade their fleets and then survive overwhelming odds in deadly strategic missions.

Ancient Space is host to a cast of characters voiced by fan-favorite actors from sci-fi television series and films, including:

    John Billingsley (Star Trek: Enterprise, True Blood)
    Aaron Douglas (Battlestar Galactica)
    Ron Glass (Firefly)
    Richard Gunn (Dark Angel)
    Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers, Star Trek: Nemesis, Saw)
    Dwight Schultz (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager)
Ancient Space Features:
  • New Frontiers, Classic Gameplay: Build, maintain, upgrade, and strategically command a multitude of ships in tactical battles and missions, facing aliens, pirates, and the unknown
  • An Explosive Space Opera: A compelling story, performed by a stellar cast, follows the player as the fleet tackles questions of humanity and science in an epic single-player campaign
  • Live with Your Choices: Each mission advances the plot, and introduces new challenges to be met by choosing the right crew and the right upgrades for the job

In The Wasteland Even The Nuns Are Well Armed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

InXile Entertainment recently revealed a new portrait from the company's upcoming Wasteland 2 RPG. The new visual created by Fallout art director Leonard Boyarsky depicts a mini-gun toting nun, one of the many denizens of the wasteland players may encounter during their travels. Much like its classic post-apocalyptic predecessor, the game will center around the exploits of a band of desert rangers struggling to keep order in a world recovering from disaster.

So we managed to get the Fallout art director, Mr. Leonard Boyarsky, to pen one of the portraits for the game. Obviously we are big fans of Leonard's talent.
Click over to the link below to check out the new art.
