ITS: Into The Stars

Word around the information super highway is that this little game, aptly named Into the Stars, is a hybrid of Star Trek Commander and FTL: Faster Than Light, but is it really? The people have spoken and the people are generally right. Into the Stars is filling the void of the lack of spaceship commander based games that are out there. With inspiration gathered from these games and mixing it with a collection of modern ideas and...

It’s like ‘Fuel’ Across America In ‘The Crew’

Ubisoft is being incredibly generous to us with promotion of The Crew, a new racing title coming this November.
