Our Second Weekly X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter Bout was Awesome!

Freaking A-Wings…

So last night, we had our second weekly X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter bout, and it was a blast. Joining jim and I were GameRanger users Barry, Blake and Ian, and once we all got on Skype, we went through a few Balance of Power campaign missions, which were a LOT of fun thanks to one very handy little tip (turn “Play over The Internet” off in the game’s options). While there were still some technical difficulties (mostly mine, this game doesn’t like it when EDTracker is also connected), we had a GREAT time.

That said, I’ve created a thread in the forums with all the relevant info for the weekly matches, and once Jim gets his Teamspeak server set up, we’ll be using that for voice comms. If you want all the info on our matches, as well as reserving a spot for next week’s match (which, if no one does, we’ll just make it a public match like we did last night), check it out. Enjoy the video!

SGJ Podcast #92 – Trek Into Darkness with Into the Stars

Crew! Doing Crew-Like Things!

Crew! Doing Crew-Like Things!

Welcome to this episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! In this episode, Jim and I talk to folks at Fugitive Games — including Ben Jones (Development Director), Roy Orr (Creative Director) and Alden Filion (Art Director) — about their upcoming space action adventure sim, Into the Stars. This was a wacky podcast because I was super tired and also had some technical difficulties getting the game’s trailer to repeat as we talked on the Twitch stream, so I’m trying to be on it, but I was likely not. ;) Ben, Roy and Alden were awesome though, and we learned a lot about the game. :)

As always, we invite you to hit us up at hail@spacegamejunkie.com or in the comments below if you have a suggestion topic or guest. A note about the video, finally. Somehow I didn’t start the stream the other night when the show started, so it’s missing the first 10-15 minutes I think, and for that I apologize. Regardless, thank you for listening/watching, and we hope you enjoy the show! :)
