“London Calling” - Cities in Motion: London Announced

Tally Ho Chaps! Paradox Interactive and Colossal Order are giving Great Britain’s capital the royal treatment as they have today announced Cities in Motion: London, a brand new addition to the critically-acclaimed mass transport simulation Cities in Motion.

London, one of the world’s busiest cities, requires an effective and substantial transport system capable of meeting the high demand of the millions of commuters going about their daily business and tourists visiting its famous attractions alike. Introducing three new scenarios, new vehicles including the famous London Underground and world-renowned landmarks such as Tower Bridge, players will put their civic planning prowess to the test as they attempt to serve the transport needs of the great metropolis.

From navigating the narrow, meandering streets with the iconic red buses to crossing the banks of the mighty Thames, Cities in Motion: London provides a new set of challenges and obstacles for the savvy urban planner to overcome.

Cities in Motion: London will release November 20th 2012 on digital download portals for $4.99/€4.99/£3.99.

Preview: Kerbal Space Program

Article Description: 
Laughing all the way from Kearth to the Mun with Squad's space simulator.

May I start this preview by sharing something with you?  I would like to show you this:

I took this picture of the moon myself.  It is not the best picture – just the result of attaching a digital camera to my 8” SCT and snapping an ordinary image – but it still inspires a sense of awe in me every time I view it.  THIS is what space is all about: the daring exploration of strange new worlds, something I think the above picture captures well.  Just who could look at such a fantastic landscape and NOT imagine what it would be like to be able to set foot on its surface, as Neil Armstrong did so long ago?

Kerbal Space Program

Kerbal Space Program is a multi-genre game where the player creates his own space program.

In KSP, you must build a space-worthy craft, capable of flying its crew out into space, without killing them. At your disposal is a collection of parts, which must be assembled to create a functional ship. Each part has its own function and will affect the way a ship flies (or doesn't). So strap yourself in, and get ready to try some Rocket Science!

Main Features:

The Vehicle Assembly Building allows players to build spacecraft out of any imaginable combination of parts.
Fully-fledged, Physics-based Flight Simulation ensures everything will fly (and crash) as it should.
Procedural Terrain delivers detailed terrain at a vast scale. The Kerbal Planet is 600km in radius!
Mod-enabled, allows players to create new content and modify the game.
Ship systems. Keep an eye out for engine temperatures and fuel levels, and try not to explode.
Build ships with multiple stages, and jettison parts away as they burn out.
Full control over the staging sequence allows for complex ships and advanced functionality.
