I love RTS but I rarely play it these days because I don’t have a lot of screen time. When I have half an hour to pick up my device I’m probably going to play an FPS. I did start a play through of the original homeworld campaigns a while back but I’ve not had time to progress far.

Shame you’re getting so downvoted. People are so determined to believe in good philanthropic billionaires that they forget the system that allows the accumulation of such ridiculous wealth doesn’t work for nice philanthropic people. It was like this with Elon musk, before he sacked his publicists (my guess) before the cave diver thing. People were saying he was going so save humanity or some shit. All he’s done is fuck up twitter. Same with this guy. I use steam and I think my steam deck is a cool little machine but that doesn’t inspire me to tongue the sweaty arsehole of an obscenely rich guy.

I’ve been playing through the first two games again for the first time in many years to get set for this. They hold up pretty well. Haven’t tried Deserts of Kharak but might play that too. I’d forgotten how much I enjoyed them.

The Feds Are Coming for “Extremist” Gamers (theintercept.com)

Gaming companies are coordinating with the FBI and Department of Homeland Security to root out so-called domestic violent extremist content, according to a new government report. Noting that mechanisms have been established with social media companies to police extremism, the report recommends that the national security agencies...

That doesn’t seem funny at all to me, maybe it’s in the delivery.

EA just added classics like Dungeon Keeper, SimCity 3000, and Populous on Steam (www.theverge.com)

There hasn’t been a lot of good news out of EA lately, but here’s some: the company just launched a bunch of classic games on Steam. The new (old) releases include nine games in total, spanning franchises like Dungeon Keeper, Populous, and SimCity....

Yeah I’d forgotten about Populous, used to play it on my Amiga back in the day. It was the first. RTS type game I played iirc.

Indeed. Some of us prefer being locked in the pantry.

Yeah, it’s getting pretty hard to be an isolated community anywhere these days. Looks like these guys in the nicobar islands may be fucked.

This looks very pretty. But I can’t help looking at it and thinking about the mechanical implausibility of getting that flappy thing to fly. It looks like shrapnel waiting to happen. I never usually have a problem suspending disbelief in games, I think the ‘simulator’ label makes my brain expect something grounded in reality.

I’m slowly replaying the old homeworld games in advance of homeworld 3 coming out soon. I’m still on the first one and it holds up very well. Bit disconcerting to see it’s a quarter of a century old now.

No, but TBH I haven’t really looked yet, I’m still working my way through the campaign. I’m told that the mods are still out there somewhere so I’d guess the expansion is too. I’m also told there’s also a community developed game that’s pretty complex - but again, I’ve not checked it out, my screen time is pretty limited these days.
