Hello, and welcome to episode 01 of the SGJ Podcast. Join Jim from the Bad Movie Podcast and me as we try to adapt something of a format in order to have some more focus and structure! ;) We talk about some news, some games we’re playing, and our topic for this week, which games that are still worth playing even though their graphics and UI are on the archaic side. We also look at the opposite side of the coin, games that have held up well over the years.
We also have an iTunes page now, as well as our RSS feed! Yay! Thank you for listening, and please find our show notes under the cut. :) Also, since I’m still pretty new to this podcasting thing (it’s old hat to Jim, thankfully), please don’t hesitate to give me constructive criticism on how I can improve my performance either in the comments below or in the forum. :) Hope the length is okay with y’all, but again, new to this stuff, still trying to be efficient. ;) Thanks again! :)
Hello everyone, and happy Tuesday! Sorry about the lack of news yesterday, had a dentist appointment and no time to put into this, sadly. Fun times! This mean I have news from today, yesterday and the weekend to cover, so let’s dive in!
Finally, related news! First, since we cover older games here, I though that a new version of the Amiga emulator WinUAE being released was somewhat relevant, thanks to Indie Retro News for the update. Next, I missed this somehow but Artem Bank — the gentleman who composed the amazing music for StarRuler — has two new bits of music out, “Facebook 5” and “Natural” which sound great. Finally, the Concept Ships blog has fantastic ships from Joseph Cross and a gorgeous orbiter concept from Rasmus Poulsen.
That’s it folks! WHEW! Thanks for visiting, and enjoy!
While not technically a space game, Sword of the Stars: The Pit — from the folks who made the Sword of the Stars space games — is finally available and going for $8.99 on GamersGate. Initial impressions are quite mixed on this one.
Welcome to the final installment of my Let’s Play series covering the amazing Rules of Engagement 2! This time I go out like I should, with a bang…several of them, in fact. I hope you enjoyed this series of Let’s Play videos, and hope you’ll stay tuned for my next one. ;) Enjoy the video, and thanks for visiting! :)
Hey y’all, we’re back with another entry in our look of Rules of Engagement 2, this time we’re trying to capture another outpost, rescue some prisoners of war and destroy every ship in the area. This time, however…things don’t go according to plan. I hope you enjoy this entry, and don’t mind my both occasional cursing and somewhat often whining. ;) Thanks for watching!
After some false starts, I was FINALLY able to record another Rules of Engagement 2 video. Yay! I hope y’all don’t mind that the game itself is paused for a little bit while I explain stuff and set up the scenario for y’all. :) As always, please let me know if you have any criticisms or thoughts of improving these things. :) Thanks, and enjoy!!
So y’all might recall that my last bout with Rules of Engagement 2 was something less than a success, so watch as I return to claim vengeance upon my enemies, armed with new tactics and ideas! Also watch me curse a bit and whine like a little girl. ;) Enjoy!!
I Do Not Like the Cone of Shame, but That Dog is ADORABLE.
Hey y’all, how’s your Sunday going? Me? I was planning on being all sorts of productive today. Was gonna do another Rules of Engagement 2 video, play some more Sword of the Stars II since it was apparently given the all-clear and so on, so I’d have some more content for y’all.
Hey y’all, welcome to my first in a series of let’s play videos covering the amazing 1993 tactical starship simulator, Rules of Engagement 2. Again, I’m new at these, so please feel free to shoot any suggestions my way as to making these better. There’s also some mild cursing in there. Why? I don’t want to spoil it for you, but let’s just say it’s evident that, even after doing the tutorial and reading the manual cover to cover, it’s easy to tell that it’s been at least 15 years since I last played this game. ;) Enjoy!
When I started this blog, a good friend of mine, Brian Hook, asked me to do a Let’s Play video of Rules of Engagement 2. I had never done one before, was a smidge nervous about it, and didn’t think I had the hardware at the time to handle it, so I figured I’d do it once I got to the game in its chronological order.
Welp, now that Brian is being kind enough to send me his copy of RoE2, I figured I’d return the favor by doing the Let’s Play vids a little early. Having never done one before, however, I decided to test it out on Endless Space, since they just had a content pack update. What follows is 40 minutes of my rambling about 50 turns into the game. Since this is my first Let’s Play video ever, I’m asking y’all to be gentle with me, but also honest. If you have ideas on how I could do this better, for example, don’t hesitate to share ‘em. ;) With that, I present to you my first Let’s Play video. Enjoy!
