SGJ Podcast #07: Getting Sold on Swords and Stars

Pew to the Power of Pew!

Pew to the Power of Pew!

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! This time Jim and I talk to Paul Tobia, or Rorschach on several forums, who is something of an expert on the Sword of the Stars series. I was fairly “meh” on Sword of the Stars II a little while back, so we asked Paul on to help convince us (and hopefully, you folks), that the game is worth our time.

We hope you enjoy this week’s episode, and as always, invite your comments either below or on the forum. Thanks for listening!

    are you guys going to do a noninterview podcast again? I liked listening to you just riff about what you've been playing.

      Hey, welcome siegmeyer, and thanks for the comments. Now, by "noninterview" did you mean just bringing someone else on to talk about games?

    That was the first podcast I listened from you site, and I really liked it.
    It also made me wanting to play SotS2, and so Im waiting for the next Steam sale to buy it, and try it out.

    Why don't you guys record "Hangouts on air" or some such?
    Have podcasts that are set with some pre-recorded background footage of the game you're talking about.

      You wanna do all that work? I know I don't. ;) Besides, people don't need to see my ugly mug. ;) We already have the stuff set up to record Skype, so that's what we'll stick with for now. :)

        I didn't mean necessarily showing your face.. but showing footage of what you're talking about. :P
        Do videos instead of just podcasts.. :3 Makes for more interesting video library.

    Not a single mention of Stardrive?

    I'm disappoint.

    Other than that, it was a great listen! Keep doing these!

    Thanks for a good listen, guys. :D SOTS isn't really my cup of tea, but I enjoyed the discussion of kickstarter/indie games/etc in the second half, and it was fascinating to hear Rorschach explain Kerberos' backstory.

    Any plans to do a Distant Worlds podcast once the expansion is out?
