If you have not checked it out already, be sure to check out Dual Universe, an upcoming Kick Starter that is essentially EvE Online meets Space Engineers. It is an extremely ambitious project if the staff at Novaquark can pull it off. Be sure to check out their Kick Starter page.
Cities Skylines is now out on Steam! Within hours of going live, the game already has an astounding 60,000 players in game, according to the Steam Community Hub. I have only been able to play lightly from a remote connection to my home computer but what I have seen thus far is quite amazing. The simulation is pretty well done and feels natural (albeit annoying when it comes to laying water lines but that’s what i love about these types of games). I really love the wind and water simulation that keeps it alive. At first it seems quite static but it quickly comes alive and you start to have fun just following people and cars around your town. There are a few bugs that are quite funny to see and do not affect gameplay from the limited time that I could play. One of them was watching a tractor-trailer basically jackknife into a building and then 180 down the road like it was some super truck with ball wheels instead of tires. Quite entertaining.

As one may know, Silver Dragons was recently in some fun with HELM Alliance in EvE Online. Things have taken a turn for the amazing and retarded. Bellow are nearly EVERY chat log with HELM in our history. You will get a great kick out of all of them. The entire time, should you notice or not, there isnt a SINGLE time that HELM presents evidence against us, but insists that all of Silver Dragons are “unreliable, untrustworthy, mean-spirited, and liars”. Whenever we presented our evidence, they pass it off as lies or wrong information. Whatever, I am fine with this. Because these mails… oh these mails and dialog. Read on.
Tera Online has been around for a year. A few months ago, they decided that the Pay to Play model, such as World of Warcraft and EvE Online, just wasn’t making the cut they hoped it would and switched over to the more popular Free to Play model, which makes money off micro-transactions. Or, as I like to put they make their money off filthy rich people who will spend thousands on a whim. Personally, Tera Online is an example of Free to Play done RIGHT. More after the jump.
