Hey folks, I don’t know if y’all have noticed, but every now and then this site goes kinda quiet for a spell because I lose myself in a non-spacey game for a spell. Whether it’s Driver: San Francisco or Skyrim, it’s sometimes not easy being an gamer who likes almost all types of games and who also has ADHD. ;) I then thought that hey, we all love space games, but we’re gamers above all else, so there’s surely to be cross pollination with other types of games we’re all playing. Therefore I thought I’d start a new thingy in which every now and again we’ll all check in with what non-space games we’re enamored with at the moment. That’s why I’m calling it “Down to Earth” since it’s not in space. ;) Now, with all that said, what are y’all playing lately?
Hey folks, just chiming in because I’m not feeling awesome, so we’re skipping the podcast because I’m too low energy to really make it fun for anyone. I think just the lack of/lousy sleep over the last few weeks is really catching up with me. :/ I’m just so…bleh…tired, unmotivated, it’s not usual for me and I don’t like it, so I wanna try to do whatever it takes to recover. With that said, we have some fun stuff coming up that I wanted to share with ya. I’m still trying to get guests for upcoming weeks, so this may change, but as it is right now, here’s what’s coming up:
- April 1st – John Hemry, Author of the Lost Fleet book series (which has awesome space combat)
- April 8th – Slower than Light with creator John Brewer (Here’s the Kickstarter)
- April 15th – Space Salvager with creator Sam Albon (fun game!)
- April 29th – A look at the Freespace Open Project with its project lead Fabian “The E” Woltermann and discussing Freespace 2′s 15th anniversary a little bit (which won’t be our only look at the game this year)
- May 6th – A look at O.R.B. (which was requested by Jim, as it just came out on SteamA
- May 13th – Off Topic: Marketing & SEO for Game Websites (Jim’s idea, to help devs out, because y’all got some stanky websites)
Remember, if you have a topic idea you’d like us to cover, please send it to email@example.com because we’re totally open to ideas. :) Thanks folks, and have an awesome day.
Hey kids, I know I’m a little behind on this but damn did last week’s trip kick my ASSSS. Regardless, the crayon contest is now over, and we have the winners, so check out their art after the cut!
So last night, Jim, podcast cohost extraordinaire, he says to me, “We need an IRC channel.” I’m like, “Great, how do we do that?” I wake up this morning and boom, we have an IRC channel all set up. Thanks Jim! :)
This will be a fun way to have more conversations about space games and other stuff, and we hope to integrate both this and Twitch into our podcasts as well. If you want to use the web-based chat, you can use our new Live Chat and Stream page. If you want to use your own client, head on down to irc.gamesurge.net, and /join #spacegamejunkie. :) I’ll be in there as much as possible, so I can’t wait to talk to y’all. :) Enjoy!
Hey kids, don’t forget that tomorrow is the deadline to get your emails into us so we’ll read them on the podcast! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your questions, comments, or topics you’d like us to discuss, and we’ll tackle ‘em on the show. Our show is a year old this week too, so if you have a favorite episode or moment from the past year, we’d love to hear about that, too! Thanks guys! :)
So Jim was sending me funny coloring book images today as we were talking about the contest we’re running (also, where are your entries people?) when he sent me this…
Hey kids, as you may recall, the developers of Space Pirates and Zombies (and its recently announced sequel) were on our podcast recently, and we asked them if we could have some codes for the first game to use in a contest. Personally I always have a hard time coming up with ideas for contests like this, but in this case, Jim’s genius came through once again. ;)
Long-time listeners to our podcast might recall than when we started this shindig about a year ago, I was just getting over a cold and coughing a bit into the microphone. Well, guess what? ;) I’ve just come down with a seriously nasty cold, with a horribly hacking cough AND dizzy spells! YAY! Therefore I’ve decided to put off the podcast until next week so I can hopefully recover as much as possible. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
On a related note, we’re still taking in letters for our write-in show next week, so if you haven’t yet, hit us up at email@example.com with your questions, discussion topics, comments or whatever else, and we’ll read ‘em on the show. :) Thanks guys, for everything! :)
Hey folks, how are ya? I’m chiming in because I’ve come to a decision recently that I want to share with y’all. Given that my time and energy seem to be in fewer and fewer quantities of late, and yet I still want to keep this site fresh, that’s something I’ve been failing at lately. Besides the weekly podcast, sometimes a week will go by without a post, and I’m not thrilled with that.
Hey guys, you might recall on the last podcast that I put up our podcast contact email. We’ve already gotten some great emails, but I want to take it a bit further. In two weeks, we’ll have a write-in edition of the show, where we will spend time answering your emails. Therefore, if you have a question you’d like to ask us, a topic you’d like us to discuss, a comment you’d like to give us, or a concern you’d like to share with us (or anything else, really), email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and hit us up. We’ll be recording the show on the evening of Tuesday, February 25th, so you have until 12:00 PM noon, Pacific time on that day, to get your email into us.
Along with your email, please include how you would like to be addressed on the show as well.
Thanks again for your patronage of the site and the podcast, and we can’t wait to read what you have to say to us. :)
