It’s that time of year again. Of course I’m not talking about Christmas, no, I’m talking about the Steam Holiday sale. Never before have I known an event to cause such equal parts joy and dread in the gaming community. Now when you see good games like Dungeons of Dredmor going for for say, $1.88 you may find it easy to understand the joy part, but how in the world could anyone expect dread? Because the prices are so low gamers feel almost compelled to buy them. Only a $0.99 crack rock special could evoke a more frenzied consumer. When the entire sale is done all of us will find our wallets lighter, caught up in the sheer game buying orgy. So, be careful, try not to buy to much, and remember… a lot of these games come back even cheaper the next day or at the end of the sale.
That’s how they get’cha.
So this is the third and so far final mission for the USS Mountain Dew B. As you will recall the USS Mountain Dew was lost in space. The fate of the USS Mountain Dew A is unknown because the flight recorder was lost AKA we screwed up the FRAPS recording for the main screen.
In something slightly related I and my friends have since gotten the full version and had a chance to play it. Let me tell you that the full version of Artemis is much better than the demo. The demo is already fun but it’s limited. When you get the full version you got a large variety of enemy ships all with different strengths and weaknesses. You get a sector filled with nebula, asteroids, minefields, black holes, anomalies, and space monsters. The extra stations also really change the dynamic as far as how the bridge works.
I’d do a video for full version, but I’m afraid it wouldn’t be as fun to watch because we actually know what we’re doing now.
Recently at Tower of Games I had the opportunity to try out Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator at Tower of Games. We played the game on three laptops with the mainscreen laptop hooked up to a 42″ HDTV. And in a shameless bit for publicity we filmed it. As you can see from the video, we had a lot of fun doing this. Mission 3 will be coming soon. There is no Mission 2.
There’s only one thing worse than not being busy. And that’s being busy but forgetting to tell anyone about it. I haven’t been updating my website like I should, and I’ve definitely been up to a lot with the Old-Schooled Tournament and airsoft. So here’s the first stage in fixing that problem. It’s the last two airsoft videos I’ve produced over at Ballahack Airsoft. The first is just a video of the general saturday gameplay at the field. The second video is from Revelations II, the post-apocalyptic style scenario event that happened on the 26th of November, 2011. Enjoy.
