We’ve got some updates, tweaks, and changes coming to some of our regular coverage here at Armchair Dragoons, including some further evolutions of Tuesday Newsday.  We’ll also be posting a major update to the event calendar & convention listing.  We’re looking at some options for upcoming recurring content.  So we’re asking you – what would you like to see from Armchair Dragoons?

3Newsday-partners

  • Rocky continues to burden your reading shelves with more great content
  • Moe is unboxing his kitchen, so not much new from him
  • Ardwulf’s counter clipping stream started out talking about game rooms and game tables and then veered off into small conventions, e-readers, and sci-fi games

 

3Newsday-4xGaming

We’ve also got a 4X-specific area in the forums to discuss any of these, too.

  • Paradox Interactive released the 3.4.4 patch for Stellaris.  In addition to the many, many changes, improvements, and bug-fixes, the patch also adds a couple key automation features long requested by the player community.
  • Developer Shiro Games has added multiplayer to Dune: Spice Wars, their real-time 4x currently in Steam Early-Access (trailer).  Players can now engage in free-for-all’s of up to 4 players, or face off against each other in 2v2 matches.  In addition, the game is currently available at a 20% discount.
  • Stardock released version 1.04 for Galactic Civilizations IV.  Along with numerous smaller changes and bug-fixes, this latest update adds new Executive Orders, a powerful defensive Colony Upgrade, and Military Starbases are (finally!) able to protect planets within their radius from invasion.
  • Mohawk Games released Update #92 for Old World.  The update adds a number of balance changes and UI improvements, plus a number of bug-fixes.
  • Kube Games has released Version 1.2.5 for Imperiums: Greek Wars.  This latest patch significantly tweaks the difficulty levels in the initial game setup screen, adds numerous quality-of-life improvements, balance changes, AI improvements, and more.
  • Slitherine/Matrix have released the Steam Open Beta v1.0.5.0 on the Open Beta Branch for Distant Worlds 2.  While we typically don’t include beta patches/updates with the news, we’re making an exception in this case, as this latest open beta version upgrades the core game engine in a bid to significantly improve DW2’s performance.

Don’t forget we’ve got a dedicated area of our forums for the professional wargamers.
