Today might not be the first day of spring - although you would think it's still the middle of winter with the snow we've been getting in NYC - but 2K is still celebrating the changing of the seasons with a pretty impressive sale.

There aren't all that many price drops to go around, but I think the quality makes up for the lack in quantity. Or just XCOM. Just XCOM being on sale is enoguh. The rest is gravy.

Here's what you can get, and for how much:

Does anything on that list tickle your fancy? Personally I'd jump on XCOM if I didn't already own it (like three times over).

Sid Meier's Starships - Tips, Tricks, and Strategies to Get Your Empire Off Terra Firma

Posted by Rob Rich on March 12th, 2015

Hailing frequencies open:
Trying to decide if this particular space empire expansions sim is worth your time? Check out our Sid Meier’s Starships review!

Sid Meier's Starships is a pretty great game in its own right, but it doesn't do a very good job of helping new players get acclimated to its systems - or its star systems (bah-dum-TSHHH). That's why we've taken it upon ourselves to cover some of the basics, a few of the things you won't learn about in-game unless you dig through the menus, and some strategies that will hopefully keep your fleet mobile and allow you to dominate the galaxy.


Getting Started


  • Keep it simple - For your first time out, don’t bother messing around with things like map size, difficulty, or victory conditions. There’s no shame in reducing the number of opponents, either.
  • The Purity Faction is the most beginner friendly - None are necessarily the best, of course, but Purity’s ability to earn double rewards will really come in handy for newbies.
  • Choose Bolivar or Fielding as your leader - There might be six other leaders to choose from, but these two are the most straightforward and will make the most sense to beginners.
  • Make liberal use of the Advice button - The little “info” button to the far left of the row of icons at the bottom of the screen will be your only friend in learning how to play Starships - aside from this guide, that is. Try to tap it every time you’re ready to take a new action as its suggestions should point you in the right direction.
  • Go out and explore - You won’t have much of a chance at any sort of victory if you don’t leave your home planet. So find those navigation lines that point to new planets, and get to visiting!

Sid Meier’s Starships is as much fun as you’d expect from the mind behind Civilization and Pirates!, but it’s a bit of a rocky start.

2K and Firaxis Announce Sid Meier’s Starships, Due Out in Early 2015

Posted by Tre Lawrence on January 20th, 2015

2k and Firaxis have formally announced an upcoming game: Sid Meier’s Starships.

The new game is part of the Sid Meier series, and specifically expands upon Civilization: Beyond Earth's science fiction universe. The game is described as a turn-based strategy game that makes the player the fleet commander ultimately in pursuit of peace.

Sid Meier (who serves as creative development chief at Firaxis) talks about experiences with regards to the new game. “When designing Starships, I was intrigued by the idea of exploring the next chapter in the story of Civilization: Beyond Earth. What happens after we colonize our new home and eventually build starships to take to the stars? What has become of our long-lost brothers and sisters from the planet Earth?” he says. “My goal was to create an experience that focuses on starship design and combat within a universe filled with interstellar adventure, diplomacy, and exploration.”

There's no word on pricing yet, but Sid Meier's Starships is scheduled to drop in "early 2015."

Todat 2K and Firaxis Games have announced the iOS version of their fantastic alien-blasting strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Within. This enhanced edition of XCOM: Enemy Unknown comes with a ton of new content including new gear, story, classes, maps, and gameplay.

Now you can add new facilities to your base, such as the slightly creepy Genetics Lab that allows you to mess around with your soldiers' biology and the Cybernetics Lab where you can convert your soldiers into giant mechanical supermen. You're going to need them, too. The alien forces have a new ally amongst the humans. A shadowy organization called EXALT is working against humanity - you'll want to infiltrate their inner workings and take them down before they have us all bowing to our new alien overlords.

Enemy Within also has new multiplayer maps, units, and abilities. Gang up on those aliens in one-on-one, turn-based matches.

Unfortunately the app is only compatible with iPad 3, iPad mini 2, iPhone 5 and up. It WILL NOT be able to run on earlier generations of iOS hardware.

You'll be able to download XCOM: Enemy Within from the App Store for $12.99 tomorrow.
