Run Around Them Rings!

Run Around Them Rings!

Hey folks, how are ya? I’m mired in work on my end, but I wanted to take a little break and let y’all know that the fun top-down space shooter Ring Runner is on sale for the next three days on IndieGameStand for $1 at minimum. If you pay $1.71 (as I write this), you’ll also get HD backgrounds, a Ring Runner novel and the soundtrack (which is really good). I’ve been playing this one as I have time, and I’m really digging it, so snag this game while you can. Enjoy!

Our Main Topic This Week…

Howdy folks, and welcome to this episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast! In this episode, Jim and I sit down with one of the creators of Ring Runner – Flight of the Sages, Enrique Dryere, to talk about the long road between the conception and the upcoming release of this awesome upcoming top-down Newtonian space combat RPG thing. :) As with all of our podcasts, the conversation veers off in several different directions, but that’s one of the constants of our chats, isn’t it? ;)

Spacing Out: For the Love of a Gamepad

Oh Gamepad, How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways...

Oh Gamepad, How Do I Love Thee, Let Me Count the Ways…

I know I know, I keep harping on this gamepad stuff, but seriously, hear me out. For years, I didn’t think I needed a gamepad on the PC. I mean, I had a full HOTAS setup, and for games that didn’t use that, a mouse and keyboard were far, FAR more accurate than a gamepad, right? I mean c’mon, any game that had gamepad support had it there to be secondary to those other, apparently superior forms of PC gaming control, right?

Spacey Game News 5/8/13: A Spritzing of News

Drink In the News...

Neeeeeeeews…

Haaaaaaaaaaay friends, happy hump day! We’re this much closer to the weekend, which means more games (for me, anyway)! ;) I’ve come to that point where X3: Albion Prelude is on my review list. I’ve not been a huge fan of the X games for a spell, but I’ll be giving this one a fair shake, and who knows, maybe being forced to stick with it for a spell might help endear me to it. Maybe if I approach it like Euro Truck Simulator 2 in space, I’ll have more fun with it. ;) Anyway, there’s news today, so let’s get to it!

Finally, the Concept Ships blog has some lovely art from CPTXIN.

That’s it for now folks. Hope y’all are having a lovely day!
