Jonathan Sims will be familiar to fans of the horror podcast The Magnus Archives, an apt choice here.

Nicole Goodnight appears to also come from the world of supernatural fiction podcasts, particularly one called Shadow & Smoke. Seems well cast here in any case.

No Man's Sky - Echoes Update is out adding a secret society of robotic aliens
24 August 2023 at 7:48 pm UTC

idk if I especially care about the space combat part, but having a whole new species/faction to interact with and having some customizable toys sounds great fun. Still holding out hope they overhaul the existing species to be a bit more interesting in a future update, but this is a welcome step toward that.

Quoting: Luke_Nukemi love this game. But the static bodies of water is just... weird and unnatural. It makes all the planets that may have a similar composition to earth feel completely lifeless.

Also the fact that rivers don't seem to exist. Oceans are also uniformly shallow, so you can't make a deep water base.

I like where they've gone, although I keep holding out hope that they'll overhaul the space stations, alien bases and similar stuff to make all that more immersive. Almost every other aspect has been re-done, it's time that one got some attention.

But I expect Echoes will not be that at all.

Sim Fest is also live right now on Steam, albeit to not that much fanfare. It runs through the weekend with some pretty decent deals on a variety of games.

Sure, I'm game.

This has been on my wishlist for a while now, and seems like something I'd really enjoy.

Retro-inspired JRPG 'Alterium Shift' enters Early Access

I really liked the Alterium Shift demo. But for this sort of game, I think I'd rather wait until full release instead of getting in on early access. It'll be a better experience in the long run.

Factorio upgraded with controller support - now in the stable release

I'd try playing this, but I fear I don't have nearly enough brain.

Not especially good at optimization or efficiency either, so that's another strike against me.

Dwarf Fortress getting close to a Linux release on Steam

Quoting: PhiladelphusOooh, multithreading! Building megaprojects with lots and lots of dwarfs has always been my main interest, and of course that tends to slow the game down when you've got ~200 little simulated dudes running about the place. I should benchmark my in-progress fort with Proton and the native version when it comes out.

Never mind megaprojects, just start breeding chickens!
