INNSide the 2016 Anniversary Sale

Star Citizen 2016 Anniversary Sale

The Turkey and Pumpkin Pie’s effect on my judgment are wearing off, and the dust has finally settled on the 2016 Anniversary Sale. It’s time to take a look at the sale qualitatively and then conduct a quantitative analysis of my Billing and Subscriptions page and assess the damage to my wallet. Before we get […]

BRIMSTONE part 27: The After-the-Credits Scene

Far far away from the wretchedness of Brimstone, a bar in the Sol system is jammed with paramedics, firefighters and rescue pilots. It is a ritual of laughing, telling stories and hard drinking — some to forget, some to re-live wild moments, and some to say last farewells.

INN Editorial: Looking back to move forward

I sit here on a Sunday morning, sipping my coffee and thinking about the future of INN. Although it’s lots of fun to dream about the future, I’ve always believed that it is necessary to look back, whenever you want to move forward, so let’s take a trip down memory lane. Humble Beginnings and a […]

BRIMSTONE part 26: Epilog

The last of the bodies lay sprawled on the pavement; the smell of the dead only adding to the persistent stench of Brimstone. Even by Brimstone standards, it has been a hell of a day…

Community Spotlight: StarShip42

Starship42

This week on Community Spotlight I’d like to share http://StarShip42.com created by reddit user /u/lundfoci featuring the beautifully atmospheric music of Utho Riley. Frankly, either one of these guys is deserving of their own community spotlight and I am shocked that INN hasn’t highlighted them already. StarShip42 is an online 3d rendering engine that allows you […]

Superluminal Communication in Star Citizen

Star Citizen Spectrum

I have participated in many discussions about in-game communications since the presentation on Star Citizen Spectrum at CitizenCon this year. One thing that keeps coming up is whether or not there will be Superluminal Communication. While I find any conversation about Star Citizen captivating, I find this subject particularly interesting for three reasons: I believe in-game […]

Can orgs hold territory in Star Citizen?

The Javelin

Recently I came across a Star Citizen fan asked: Will organizations be able to hold territory in Star Citizen? Or more specifically, similar to the experience in EVE Online, will large orgs be able to dominate areas of the ‘verse, effectively shrinking the playable area for small, independent operators? This question captured my imagination. I […]

…And we’re back!

Some of you may have noticed there was an attempted Coup d’état at Imperial News Network yesterday. However, we regained control over the website, email addresses, and the Twitch channel and we’re back online. Sadly, we’ve had to let a few people go for obvious reasons. Sadly, our PATREON ACCOUNT was also compromised. If you support INN […]
