Gone Gold - Sea of Stars

A post on Steam announces that Sea of Stars is gold, signifying the end of development for this turn-based RPG, and putting it on track for its launch on August 29th. Word is: "Thanks again for the overwhelming support over the years, we hope you’re looking forward to an exciting adventure!" There's a playable demo for PC and consoles, and the Windows version is available on Steam. The demo first arrived during the last Steam Next Fest, accompanied by this trailer with a look at what to expect. Here's a bit on the game:
Promising the Sabotage touch in every system, Sea of Stars aims to modernize the classic RPG in terms of turn-based combat, storytelling, exploration and interactions with the environment, while still offering a hearty slice of nostalgia and good old, simple fun.

Pressing the action button in sync with the animations increases damage output while reducing incoming damage. Along with timed hits, combat features multi-character combo attacks, boosting, and a strategic "locks" system offering options to play with different damage types in order to hinder enemies while they are channeling powerful attacks or spells, all in an immersive take on the genre; no random encounters, no transitions to separate battlefields, and no grinding.

Out of the Blue

Rangers, Mets agree to Max Scherzer trade. It's never happy news to give up on a season, but this year was probably a lost cause whether the Mets admitted it or not. And getting a strong return on a 39-year old player with an expiring contract is a very practical move. But as an old codger myself, I like to root for aging players, so I'm sorry to see Max go, even if he's no longer anywhere near his prime.

Trade-worthy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.
