Disney has slowly been re-releasing older Star Wars titles, as well as major updates, to Steam and PC gamers for the last few months. The latest game to hit Steam is 1998’s Star Wars: Rogue Squadron 3D. Unlike the X-Wing and TIE Fighter games, Factor 5’s take on the iconic fighters is more arcade focused.

In a somewhat shocking turn of events, the head diplomat for the long-time member alliance Circle-of-Two, has announced that they’re resetting the alliance. As of writing, the
For those even remotely paying attention to EVE over the last few months, the last couple weeks have been an amazing mixture of tensions and terror. Entire books could be written, although probably not Kickstarted, about the decisions and general attitude of certain alliances in EVE Online that led to the current war. The sum
Frontier’s latest newsletter-based communication contains a few more details about additions the ‘Engineers’ update will bring to Elite: Dangerous.

The recent release of the Alpha 2.2.2 patch marks yet another achievement for the mega-hit Star Citizen. In an effort to encourage more PC gamers to try the game out, Cloud Imperium has launched a new free fly access for all accounts. All the ships are available to fly including the recently added Aegis Sabre.
EverQuest Next, the “next gen” MMO was announced in 2012, and has been cancelled by Daybreak (formerly Sony Online Entertainment). A letter to the ‘Daybreak Community’ confirms that development on the title has now ceased. “In the case of EverQuest Next, we accomplished incredible feats that astonished industry insiders.

The latest expansion adds so much more to an already rich experience, from new
CIG has just launched the latest version of Star Citizen following a stint of closed testing, as well as a short run on the PTU. This Alpha 2.2 update brings some new content to the alpha including a flyable Aegis Sabre and not so flyable Xi’an Khartu-Al, but it’s in the hangar at least. The space
CCP has revealed proposed changes to the tax system within New Eden. These changes take the form of increased fees and taxes levied on players via NPC station services.
