I first heard about this game a couple years ago and never paid it any mind. Then I saw a post on it at the RSI forums yesterday and checked it out ..It looks pretty interesting.

It's been greenlit on steam and is set for a Jan 2017 early access release.

While I'm not big on survival games in a purely PvP environment, this looks like it may be a good diversion while we wait for SC. Depending on the cost, I do believe I'll check it out at least.

Well, it released as an early access alpha version on the 24th ..buy in  is $25.

I have to say that I am not unimpressed with what is there at this early stage, although what is there requires some patience to learn.

The graphics are excellent and gameplay is fun once you learn how to manuver in space. I've only played about 3 hours so far I haven't gotten past the first EVA task. It's good that it allows you to either respawn and continue or start over ..I've died at least a dozen times in that 3 hours ;) You get two crappy space suits to start, and once they're gone you have to start over anyway because you can't do much without one.

If you remember it was said that this was going to be an open PvP gank fest and I can see where that may be possible, but it's server setup actually can minimize that. At present there are only 60 players to a server and most have much less than that on them, so the mood depends much on the server you choose. But better than that is that private servers will be allowed. I was looking over gaming servers to rent yesterday and found that I could get into one at about $25 a month. (which is about the price of a pizza these days) Depending on how this develops I may even get serious about getting one.

Cool! Keep me updated.

My gaming will pretty much be on hold for awhile now. Coaching is taking up a lot of time now. We practice 5 days a week this year compared to the 3 I coached last season. The varsity has their first game this Thursday, my JV team next Tuesday. Then the Varsity plays their next game next Wed in the Outer Banks, a 2 hr drive away. It also happens to be spring break for the local college, which is where all the other assistant coaches go to school right now. So the varsity coach asked me if I could go with them for that game since they'll probably all be gone then.

Oh, and I'm now officially a contracted school employee. Which is cool. But not sure when I'll get paid. Or how much. (Well, I know roughly, and it's not much). Not that I'll have much to spend on gaming, anyways.

On top of that, when not coaching I'm extra busy trying to get stuff done around the house. As Apep and Dat know, we've been waiting to get our street paved. Supposed to finally get done maybe May/June. So trying to do as much as possible so that once the street is done we're pretty much ready if we want to put the house on the market and downsize. So my weekends and mornings are doing that stuff right now.

But at some point down the road I'll have time and money to game more again and try some of these games.  ;D
