Starpoint Gemini 2 hits Xbox One today. Launch trailer revealed. Review copies available.

Little Green Men scores perfect timing with launching Starpoint Gemini 2 - their space-sim/RPG, in the middle of Christmas shopping fever. The game is now available on Xbox One platform.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 11th , Zagreb, Croatia
Starting today Xbox One users have a great opportunity to treat themselves with an amazing tactical space-sim/RPG - Starpoint Gemini 2. Originally released on PC, the title received over 2000 positive opinions on Steam, sold over 150 000 copies and won several awards.

Watch the Launch Trailer
HERE to get a glimpse of what awaits you in the Gemini universe and don’t forget to head over to Microsoft Store Marketplace to buy the game if you like what you saw.

In Starpoint Gemini you’ll get a chance to become a captain of your own space ship, exploring the Universe. You will need to plan your tactics to fight your way through the enemies‘ fleet. You’ll control a vast arsenal of space ships, everything from small and agile gunships to heavy-duty deadly carriers. Space will be your battlefield, and now no loading screens will break your seamless experience. Even in the fiercest battles, you’ll be able to secure your progress thanks to a brand new saving system, that allows you to save your game progress at anytime, anywhere. And all that for only 34.99 EUR or 34,99 USD.

It has been two years since the end of the second Gemini war, the situation in the wartorn system is further from a resolution than ever.

The collection of freedom fighters named Gemini League is now reduced to a small group, with no power or influence, after losing their leaders. The Empire meanwhile, has re-opened the Starpoint to occupy the once renegade Gemini sector - and beyond.

A multitude of Imperial warship fleets and mammoth motherships have crushed every trace of opposition. The situation was looking bleak, when they suddenly halted their armada and re-shifted their focus on fortifying Starpoint with staggering numbers. Rumours soon spread that they were afraid of something coming after them through the T-gate, from what was supposed to be the core of the Empire. What are they running from that makes even the mighty Empire tremble?

Starpoint Gemini 2 will take players on a breath taking journey with dark secrets and unimaginable twists that will finally unveil the incredible truth.

●Complex, but easy-to-use RPG system, now coupled with dynamic real-time 3D combat.
●Explore the dynamic game world as a whole, rather than through individual maps.
●Use T-Gates, wormholes and riftways to travel faster around the Gemini system.
●Fifty diverse factions ranging from states and companies, to outlaws locked in a power struggle, with over 100 commodities to trade or plunder.
●Special revocable licenses acquired from factions offer various bonuses and unlock new options.
●Hire mercenary captains to follow you on your travels and share your fate, and employ officers to fill key positions on your ship (engineering, navigation, tactical).
●Random missions get generated depending on the player’s actions and allegiances.
●Over 70 unique ships, fully upgradeable with various ship systems, with a.o. visible turrets, and a large arsenal of destructive weapons to blast enemies to pieces.
●Direct ship controls create complete immersion.
●Advanced physics provided by NVIDIA PhysX technology.

The Xbox One version of the game will also include:

●A brand new saving system – save your game progress at any point, anytime.

12/09/2015 - Super Mario Maker Received Free New Sponsored Content

Super Mario Maker Revs Up with Free New Content Created by Mercedes-Benz

Wii U Owners Can Play a New Event Course and Unlock a Vehicle-Themed Costume

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 9, 2015 – Mercedes-Benz has created an original Super Mario Maker Event Course that will be delivered with a special costume for players to unlock at no additional charge. The course, called Mercedes-Benz Jump’n’Drive, arrives today and includes an unlockable Mercedes-Benz GLA costume that shows Mario in the driver’s seat. Once players unlock it by completing the level, they can add it to their collection of Mystery Mushroom costumes.

Super Mario Maker continues to grow and evolve with new courses and content,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing. “It’s great that a luxury car brand like Mercedes-Benz recognizes the ability to create fun courses and share them with others.”

This special content marks the second time that Mercedes-Benz has made fun additions to a Nintendo game: The GLA is one of multiple free downloadable vehicles in Mario Kart 8. The new Super Mario Maker Event Course was created by Mario fans at Mercedes-Benz who were inspired by the GLA’s appearance in Mario Kart 8 and wanted to build a level with Mario taking the GLA on a road trip. The Mercedes-Benz Event Course takes players through a variety of automotive-related areas, including being at the dealership, taking a test drive through a city and eventually cruising down the autobahn. And as with any good Mario level, some surprises wait to be discovered.

“We are delighted to once again be represented in a blockbuster game like Super Mario Maker,” says Dr. Jens Thiemer, Vice President Marketing Mercedes-Benz cars. “Mercedes-Benz and Super Mario have a lot in common. Above all, they share the same vision: to inspire their customers and fans.”

The Super Mario Maker game lets players create, play and share their own Mario courses using a wide array of enemies, objects and power-ups. Millions of courses have been uploaded for people to play, many using elements of the Mushroom Kingdom in ways never before encountered. Nintendo also has previously added a course designed by Facebook, the course featured in the final round of the 2015 PAX Prime Omegathon and other courses designed by Nintendo.

The Mercedes-Benz Jump’n’Drive level is available in the “Event Courses” section of Super Mario Maker, which showcases special levels presented by Nintendo and partners. The level from Mercedes-Benz, the game’s exclusive automotive partner, can be downloaded for free by everyone who owns the game.

Remember that Wii U features parental controls that let adults manage the content their children can access. For more information about this and other features, visit
