Experience action-packed space combat that pushes both you and your spaceship to the limit. Outfit your ship with the latest in high-tech weaponry. Do you like picking off your targets from a distance? Check out the cannons. What about doing strafing runs so close to your target that you can chip off paint?

Augment all that with a large assortment of different skill-based boosts and You just might become the ultimate agent of destruction.

Almost all items found in the game can be combined with other items to create new ones, ranging from composite materials to entire weapon systems. Or you can keep it simple and sell the stuff to the highest bidder.

Swapping entire ships is nice and all, but what if you really liked the chassis of one and the engine of another? Why not combine the two? Yes, my dear captain, you're no longer confined to the bare metal shapes that form spaceships. Mix and match individual parts to form something special, something new, something that speaks to you. Incidentally, if it actually does start speaking to you, we advise seeking medical attention.

Disney's Treasure Planet: Battle of Procyon

Disney's Treasure Planet: Battle at Procyon is a 3D RTS game focusing on space combat. In the main campaign's story-driven missions, you begin play as Jim Hawkins, a cadet in the Royal Navy's fight against pirates and the deadly Procyon Fleet, with an eye toward eventual promotion to fleet commander. Skirmish and multiplayer modes allow the choice of playing as all three factions.

Successfully completed missions result in ship and fleet enhancements, more experienced crews, and upgraded weapons. Royal Navy Fleet weapons are only slightly inferior to the reworked weapons of the Procyon Fleet but are sturdier and less vulnerable. Ships for the Royal Navy range from torpedo boats and war sloops to escorts, frigates, and the impressive StarHammer, while pirates man sloops, gunboats, schooners, assault cutters, and more, including several unique designs like the carrack and barque. The Procyon Fleet is built for speed and maneuverability, geared for fast hit-and-run attacks, and as the game progresses, news of a mysterious Ironclad Fleet surfaces as well.

Ship designs in Battle at Procyon are fashioned after the seafaring ships from the golden age of sail, with solar winds filling the sails and rigging. Arsenals reflect futuristic models of light, medium, and heavy weapons such as laserball and plasma cannons, beam weapons, Gatling guns, harpoons, fire and net launchers, gravity waves, torpedoes, mortars, and more. Other features include multiple waypoint settings, star maps, panic fire, secondary ship control, docking, repairing, towing, grappling, and boarding actions.

So many great or at the very least interesting games coming out this month.

Gears 5 (gamepassing it since the price sucks here)
GreedFall (I'm almost 100% convinced of picking it up day one)
Fantasy general 2
Blasphemous since Rhaknar said the demo was goty material

And then some others I might get like The Surge 2, Code Vein (though the price for CV really sucks so probably sale material), Devil's Hunt (queen's been hyping it up so it might be good) and Daymare.

Also, new thread smell, hmmmmm :steam_pigblanket:

New thread and what a jam packed month. I'm afraid some games that should be getting some attention will be placed in the back burner, unfortunately.

New thread!.. and a lot of old people :)

I was going to complain about the "easy" challenge, but then I remembered that I already sunk 130 hours in Oxygen not Included so... not that easy :p...
I don't suppose pushing the "Credits" button counts?

Really hoping for more good impressions on Greedfall.

I've actually been emailing the Noita people since 2017 pictures of my cat Henry on their dev blog trying to get a review key for the game. All thats happened is getting sporadic emails back saying I have a cute/handsome looking cat.

I apologize in advance for posting (yet again) about this, but I promise it's the last one. :)

If anyone is yet to buy Knights and Bikes, and is interested in getting some exclusive content, I have a copy of the game for sale in our buy/sale/trade section of the website that includes some exclusive content.
I have dropped the asking price significantly, so it's now just a couple of € above the European Steam price for the game, and my copy includes 2 kickstarter exclusive DLCs that were included on a £80+ tier.

Here's the link:


thanks (and sorry again)
