Hey everyone, just wanted to say thanks for stopping by haha! The website hit 13,000 hits a few days ago and now this blog just hit 100 unique visitors since I moved in September 2014. I always wondered how many people visiting the site checked my news pages and thanks to the statistical features here it appears about 20-25% of my website visitors stick around to checkout my news pages which is better than I thought. When I moved everything to the blog I wondered whether all my efforts were worth it so its great to see people are stopping by for the nerd news lol!
Speaking of which there’s been some interesting pieces of news in the last few weeks which I’ll post below:
A cool Kickstarter has appeared for a gory hardcore 90s Quake/Doom style first person shooter called Strafe. The trailer is hilarious & they’ve even created an old Geocities style webpage to promote the game lol.
In the world of Elder Scrolls there’s been some cool stuff released. Firstly Bethesta interviewed one of the people behind the massive Beyond Skyrim project that is recreating all of Tamriel (eg Morrowing, Cyrodil etc) in Skyrim. Their stuff looks amazing!
The Elder Scrolls Online people have released their final video in a series of short Elder Scrolls films that are truly amazing in quality. They’ve also combined them all into one movie which I’ll post below if you haven’t seen them.
Fans released this rather amusing Fallout vs Skyrim video.
Sid Meier, creator of my beloved Civilization series (which I may cover on my site one day) has announced that he’s doing a Master of Orion/Galactic Civilizations style space game called Starships that expands on the story he started with Civilization Beyond Earth, a remake of sorts of one of my favourite all time games Alpha Centauri! http://www.gamespot.com/videos/embed/6423028/
And finally Freelancer & Wing Commander creator Cris Roberts has released the player vs player Arena Commander module to help beta test Star Citizen’s combat. If you’re a backer then get over there and start shooting people lol!
