So because I’m underemployed, I usually have a decent amount of time to dedicate to this site, and I’m enjoying finding news and working on content immensely. However, because of the theme breaking today, I got absolutely NOTHING done for this site today, and for that, I apologize. I hope to get back on track tomorrow with regular news, plus I’m in the process of reviewing two games (1972′s Star Trek and Really Big Sky) as well a preview of Starfarer. I hope to have more content for y’all soon, and I thank you for your patience and your patronage. :)
So the theme I was using, Mantra, had an update today. “Oohhh, yay!” I thought to myself, “This means it should have new features and such!” So I, of course, updated…and found much of my site broken. So now I’m trying to find a replacement for the moment, so please pardon the mess, or if the theme is one thing one moment and one thing the next. I’m experimenting. Thanks for your patience and your patronage.
Edit: Okay, found a workable theme for the time being. Sheesh.

Get Starpoint Gemini for 50% off!
Over on Impulse, you can find some great deals on sci-fi games at the moment. These include:
Starpoint Gemini for %50 off at $14.99. This is a really fun space combat RPG thingy that’s totally worth the price.
Dreamcatcher Sci-Fi Bundle for %66 off at $14.99. This bundle includes AquaNox, AquaNox 2: Revelation, Chaser, SpaceForce Rogue Universe, SpaceForce Captains and Genesis Rising: The Universal Crusade. Out of all of these, the only one I’ve not played is Chaser, but the rest are at least pretty decent (the best being SpaceForce Rogue Universe). While I wouldn’t recommend many of these by themselves at $14.99, for the entire package, that’s pretty much a steal.
Buy this! Buy it now! ;)
Well hot damn diggidy dawg. The awesome people at Good Old Games have added the groundbreaking first two games in the Wing Commander saga to their already awesome cadre of amazing games.
While there’s no word on whether this includes the expansions to the games as well — likely not, since other EA releases on GoG like Wing Commander: Privateer and others are without their expansion packs — this is still an excellent way for folks who missed these games the first time around to experience them now. For $5.99, you really can’t go wrong, so snag these now and enjoy!
