Some Star Wars Gaming for Y’all!

Not Bad with a Gamepad.

Not Bad with a Gamepad.

With the release of X-Wing and TIE Fighter on GOG yesterday, it put me in (even more of) a mood to play some X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, so last night friends-of-the-site Nate and Hunter climbed into their cockpits and we had some fun flying and dying over on Twitch. :)

We’re still pleased as to how well the game works over GameRanger! This gives me hope that if GOG should ever get X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter, they’d implement their Galaxy multiplayer support for it, because this game is a BLAST, and I typically don’t say that about multiplayer games.

Then, as so many people were asking how well these games worked with a gamepad, I took a 360 gamepad to the GOG DOS version of TIE Fighter to see how it fared. While I found it serviceable, I also found that the jerky motions that resulted in using such a small stick actually made me a bit nauseous. This has never happened to me before whilst playing any kind of video game, so I don’t think I’ll be repeating the experiment. However, if a gamepad is all you have, it should suffice.

Enjoy the videos, and thanks for watching!

Let’s Play Starpoint Gemini 2 – Entry 4 – The First Step

Pew Pew Pew!

Pew Pew Pew!

In this episode of Starpoint Gemini 2, I continue to follow the main plotline while still stopping every now and again to get into some trouble. I start to feel a bit frustrated, however, because getting a better ship will take so much more money, money that is taking forever to make, and until then, I’m stuck in a fairly underpowered ship that has to run away from many fights. It’s a confusing situation, so I’m hoping that continuing the storyline will help alleviate this. Therefore, please join me as I continue the main plot and ramble a bit about my frustrations. Thanks for watching!
