imageGreetings! We need your help!

This year we have SIX games (not including Star Control) that are being released or going into early access this year.

We want to make sure we highlight the coverage these titles get on the major game sites that would traditionally cover these titles.

Please comment below on any sites you think I’m missing that have substantial traffic that you think are likely to cover PC games as well as ones you would like us to talk to.

GameWatcher should be on your radar, here's the coverage they've already given for Galactic Civilizations III - http://www.gamewatcher.com/games/galactic-civilizations-iii

Offworld Trading Company - http://www.gamewatcher.com/games/offworld-trading-company

Lately I've really enjoyed Explorminate, Space Sector, and Space Game Junkie, but I think they're all pretty small. They've already provided some coverage of your upcoming stuff.

 

on Feb 05, 2015

Space Sector and Space Game Junkie. Not big sites, but IMO visited by your target audience exclusively. 

EDIT> Beat me to it, LOL.

I'll be covering Sovereign and Galactic Civilizations 3 next week on: http://www.games-arena.ro/

After that it'll be looking at OTC soon after that.

Now, I wouldn't call the site major, compared to ones that use English. But in the obscure eastern european language niche, we are quite notable-ish.

It's not big, but you should probably include Explorminate on the list.

I love the avatar, unacomn!  It brings back memories

http://www.eurogamer.net/    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eurogamer)

http://www.usgamer.net/

same network as GamesIndustry.biz  ... is that the gi you listed above?

 

a box of various sites at the bottom of the wiki

on Feb 05, 2015

arstechnica.com is a  ather ecclectic tech site (it/infosec/physics/biomed/pc hw/coaoles/macs/etc/etc.. Oh and games sometime .

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2012/10/review-xcom-enemy-unknown-is-a-credit-to-the-name/

http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/10/civilization-beyond-earth-next-time-reach-for-the-stars/

a couple recent reviews they did that come to mind

 

not sure what I hit on my phone to mske that first line big.

on Feb 05, 2015

I always check out Rock, Paper, Shotgun's (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/) coverage first. Well after metacritic.com, of course, but as metacritic just aggregates reviews from other sites,  I don't suppose it counts.

Nitrous engine-powered?  Please be! 

 

What: Galactic Civilizations III: You are the leader of an interstellar civilization that must expand into the galaxy.
Who: Er, the team who made Galactic Civilizations II.

Is it really the same team? I thought you are the only person that worked on both GalCiv II and III. I may be mistaken though.

Nope, while there are new people on GalCiv III, other than Cari (who's on maternity leave) the GalCiv II team is on GalCiv III.

I see, thanks.

Thanks for all the eXplorminate love, guys. We're not "big" yet, but one day we'll be the definitive site for all things 4X. We're working hard on it

on Feb 07, 2015

PS: I think you mean "February 2016" for OWTC. 

Also, if SK is due next month, does that mean we will see Beta 5 this month?
