Steam Workshop now supports paid mods, starting with Skyrim

User-made mods can now be bought and sold through the Steam Workshop. Although a wealth of player modifications have been available free through the Steam Workshop for years, such content has never been sold, barring a few rare instances of developer-sanctioned DLC.

Starbound received a rather large update this month that does some things. Good things, on the whole, but also some that are rather, well, there.

The Spatials’ team must be Star Trek fans

I’ve been playing The Spatials, a simulation with role-playing elements that takes place in space, and one thought has prevailed. The team that created The Spatials, Weird and Wry, must be serious Star Trek fans. You can’t tell me those adorable uniforms don’t look like something out of Star Trek! The inclusion of a few more »
