Godus is a game from the maker of Dungeon Keeper, Theme Park and Black and White and has just received its first beta update since it hit Steam early access. It still only supports up to the Iron age and the news clearly states the devs chose not to make a lot of Trivial updates and prefered to make major ones, hense the past 7 months of nothingness.

The Wasteland Survival Kit version of the Strip is now available to download from our Fallout Area. The WSK version is made for the PC and turns the Strip in to a single open area you can walk the full length of without needing to enter any doors. As you know the old Consoles could not handle the full strip so Obsidian split it up in to 3 sections. That is not a problem for the PC.

Things just seem to be heading in Fallout's direction right now don't they. Me playing Fallout again, Otelinos For the Enclave and a high chance I'll be modding Fallout NV next.

Banished managed to get user score of 8.5 on metacritics. But only managed a 73 from the professional reviewers. So I guess this is another game where the pros got it wrong and the players loved the game.
The stats for the user score currently breaks down like list.

Otellino has finished the final version of his Fallout New Vegas Mod, for the Enclave. You can download it from Nexus or from his website. Though Nexus version is tainted with a bad case of "been on nexus'itus" lol.
Otellino makes the sort of mods I make so most of you should enjoy it :)

Maia is a plantary colonization game where you set up base on an alien planet, a little like the Space Colony idea but vastly different in practice. I have noticed that the devs for Maia are not posting news to steams news page but are instead posting update news on Steams forums instead. So if you want to follow this games progress, read the forum.
So far its looking interesting and updates are regular so it should come along pretty fast.

Legends of Eisenwald
is a game I am enjoying but would add it is not yet ready to be played, it is close, but not quite there yet. It is a Strategy RPG set in the medieval era that uses the chess board style battles, though its not as bad as other games that use this simple system.
They release regular news about it, the last one being about combat
. The balancing is off and the game feels incomplete but there are regular news posts about it. A few weeks back they announced a map editor
would be released in their next patch which will hopefully allow modders to make their own worlds and populate them with quests and interesting encounters.
Since I really like this game, it is high on my list of games to mod next.
But with my track record with text, spelling mistakes and gramma errors are going to ripe :)

ArmA 3 has seen a whole string of multiplayer updates for the game but the Single Player campaign is still not finished 6 months on.
The best games of this type by Bohemia Interactive was the Flashpoint games they made. The ArmA series has never lived up to the reputation of the Flashpoint series. Excluding Flashpoint Dragon Rising which was not made by them and was also crap.

The Age of Decadence got an update yesterday on Steam. This is the game that is text heavy, great for those that love text based games, it claims to be a hardcore RPG but I would dispute that and call it an adventure game with RPG elements. It is an odd mix.
Despite the update the early access version of this game is very limiting and for all intensive purposes a demo.

The Planetary Annihilation gamma build was released recently and is the first fairly well balanced release of this early access game. It is extremely playable and looking really polished now. Normally it costs £35 but the price right now for the next £5 hours is less than £20.
I have played this game and its pretty good, so consider this a recommendation.
