Quick Life Update: Move Over, Now to The Unpacking!

This is My Life Right Now...

This is My Life Right Now…

Hey guys, just wanted to give y’all a quick update as to how things are going. The move is done – and it went great, woohoo!! – but we’re still in the midst of unpacking! My PC is unpacked and working (it survived, yay!), but I need to snake in an ethernet cable across the entire apartment to get it connected to the Interwebs, which should happen by this weekend. That means I’m on track to resume content creation by this weekend, as well as resuming the podcast next week! YAY! I wanna again thank you all for your patience during this slow period, but the end of the tunnel is approaching!

Also, now that my brain isn’t fully in moving/packing mode, I plan to put back a lot more energy into this blog, but I’m not above asking for some help when necessary. For example, if there is a person or game you would like us to discuss on the podcast, let us know at hail@spacegamejunkie.com so we can put it/them on the schedule! ;) Otherwise we might have to just throw some crap together at the last minute or something. ;)

Thanks guys! :)

SGJ Podcast #72: Experimental Randomness and First Impressions

What? We Had to Test Hitbox with SOMETHING, so Why Not Paragon? ;)

What? We Had to Test Hitbox with SOMETHING, so Why Not Paragon? ;)

Hey folks, welcome to this random-ass episode of the Space Game Junkie podcast! This week, Jim and I were supposed to talk about Orbiter, the realistic space/orbital flight simulator. However, since I’m mired in moving, and Jim’s internal calendar got thrown off by our Saturday podcast, we were both woooooefully unprepared for just how detailed and deep the game actually is (I so don’t have time to read the 130+ page manual right now), so we put that on the backburner and did some testing with Hitbox.tv and discussed games which left us with negative first impressions that were later turned on their ear, like Independence War 2, for example. It was a fun discussion, and I think makes for a fun podcast. :)

Now with the move coming up next week, there won’t be a podcast for the next two weeks as I have to focus on the move, packing, unpacking and all that. Once all that should be done, we’ll be returning on 9/9 with a podcast about Star Command: Revolution, which was recommended by one of our listeners. If you have a suggestion for a guest or topic for us to cover, or just wanna yell us for whatever reason, hit us up in the comments below or at hail@spacegamejunkie.com. Thanks for listening folks, and have an awesome day!

Note, Hitbox.tv seems pretty great so far for some things — such as having a much smaller delay than Twitch — but it’s YouTube upload capabilities are problematic at the moment. With that said, please enjoy the video from Hitbox directly below. Thanks! Yay, Hitbox finally uploaded it to YouTube, I just had to do it in Safari rather than Chrome. WTF? Enjoy!
