Chitting and Chatting :)
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!
Send Us Your Thoughts!
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! :)
Preach it Palpatine…
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…
That’s the Stuff…
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! :)
Wow, Remember These?
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.
Warning: Personal Ranting Ahead…
Drop Us a Line!
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. :)
A Simple Question For You All…
Hey guys and gals, I’m trying something new. :) Tonight on the podcast — we typically record on Tuesday evenings, if y’all didn’t know — Jim and I are gonna talk about immersion in space games, and I thought it’d be fun if we got some input from our listeners/readers. :) Therefore, in the comments, please tell us which space game you’ve found most immersive, and why. If you don’t want to leave it in the comments, you can send it to us directly at hail at spacegamejunkie dot com. ;) Looking forward to your submissions guys, and as always, thanks for visiting. :)
Edit: Hey folks, thanks so much for your responses!! They made for a great discussion on the podcast, which will go up later this week. :)
Spare a Tuppence, Guv’nor?
Hey folks, how are ya? I’m writing because I’ve decided to make a change or two to the site, and I wanted to be as up front and transparent about it as possible. Because I love you guys. A Lot. :) Now, as much as I love working on this site, I’m not able to work on it as much as I’d like because so much of my focus has to go towards work that pays the bills. Now I know I’ve put up a donation button, and I’m thrilled for and amazingly thankful to all those who have donated, but I want to take things a step further and have this site at least pay for its own hosting costs, and hopefully, eventually, a bit more. This is why I have a plan that I wanted to shoot your way.

This Has Taken Up the Bulk of My Time Lately…
I have a confession to make. There are a lot of other games I could’ve been playing for this blog, whether it’s toying the sublime Elite: Dangerous alpha or visiting an old friend in Star Wars: TIE Fighter, there’s no shortage of great games to discuss.
Yet all I’ve basically been playing — besides a Skyrim break now and then — is Jumpgate.
