StarForge Time

Posted Jun 04 2012 by thatguy in action , Action Industries Blog , blog , Doc3 , e3 , forge , industries , new , news , star , tech , updates

    Hello, our loyal masses. And be assured, there are countless masses coming to our site, and I'll be damned if they aren't loyal. This is the first entry of a long line of updates on whatever I feel like. Hopefully your read-ey balls will be pleased by these entries.     [caption id="attachment_102" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Ol' Blue Eyes after he reads each one of our articles."][/caption]   Anyways, found something fancy that people ought to check out. It's called StarForge. Not this Star Forge (it's ok- I thought of this one too), but StarForge. It's a new game from CodeHatch, which appears to be a young squad of developers with everything to prove. They might do it with this game. It's part Minecraft, part Halo, and part Warcraft mixed in with a healthy dose of OMFG-like expansiveness. This ain't your daddy's sandbox either. This brings a new meaning to "explore where ever you want". You can build wherever you want- underground, above ground, and even space.   [caption id="attachment_105" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Building...but in space."][/caption]   To add to the interesting-ness, why are you building, you may ask? Well, even if you aren't, we're going to pretend you are. When it hits night time, enemies (fairly zerg looking) may attack you, and you'll have to defend your base. So you best build it well, lest you get rushed. In any case, it is a pretty rad concept. I will be jumping into this thang and will write Action Industries' first review (of sorts) in the next few weeks. I'll post my reactions and observations. Deal? Deal.   In the meantime, however, check out their gameplay video. It gives a good summary of the game and shows how epic this world actually is. There's a download link to StarForge under the video. Or- you can just click here and start your download.   I would be remiss as a "journalist/blogger/keyboard smasher" if I didn't mention that E3 is this week. Some cool stuff has already happened there, but I'm going to pick a few of the stories from E3 and sum them up in the next article. So stay tuned- more "writing" to come.   Oh-also. Shameless plug. Action Industries, with our tons and TONS of content, has dipped its pinky toe into social media. We are on Twitter now, so if you want updates and such, we'll be announcing articles and content from there. Follow us here.   See you, space cowboy. -Doc3

Update O'Clock

Posted May 30 2012 by thatguy in action industries , Action Industries Blog , art , Doc3 , gaming , music , news , reviews , tech , update , updates

Greetings, jerkwads. I know that everyone's been desperately waiting since our September release for updates on Action Industries. Desperately. I'm pretty sure billions of people have been parked at their computers pressing refresh on our site, craving for even just one precious word from the AI team. Right? RIGHT!?!?   I guess that might be a slight exaggeration. In any case, we're back! Action Industries is undergoing some changes. We're going to give this place a little more attention. Ok, maybe a lot more attention. More than one posting per year. That's our new goal. Our stuff is going to be more tech oriented- video game reviews, thoughts on changes in the tech industry, new shinies that you might want to pick up for yourself- that sort of thing.   We're also going to add a few sections- we're adding an "art" section. Think photoshop, memes, etc etc. We're going throw up a music section too- turns out Beauclerc and I are going to try our hand at a music project that we think you might like. If you don't like it- well, we're just gonna do it anyway. More on that later.   In time, our hope is to add other contributors to the site and make it a "go-to" site for news, reviews, music, and whatever else we think is worth giving our very important opinion on (Read: probably not very important. Also, shut up.)   In any case, while I'm not guaranteeing updates 24/7, we're going to try and get at least one article/blog/posting/bliggity blah a week and go from there. Though here at Action Industries, we're not big on requirements and timelines. We'll probably change that soon. Anyways, we'll get on the social media tip and let you guys know when we have new stuff. Also, we'll let you know when we have social media stuff set up for you to follow and tweet and +1 and pin and whatever you young hip hoppers with your new-fangled cell phones and loud music do these days.   Well, that's it. More coming soon.   -Doc3
