OMG Klingon Academy Works Again!!!!!!!

Slice and Dice!

One of my favorite capital ship space sims of all time — in fact it’s in very close running with the Rules of Engagement games — is Star Trek: Klingon Academy. It’s a lovingly detailed cap ship sim that, thanks to its multiple stations and verbal order system, gives you meticulous control over nearly every aspect of […]

SGJ Podcast #48: Drowning in Immersion

Hey folks, welcome to the latest episode of the Space Game Junkie Podcast. I apologize for getting this up so late, as Jim sent it to me days ago, but I had the busiest weekend ever, so I didn’t really have time to put it up until now. I also don’t have time to do […]

SGJ Podcast #29: Cap Ships and the Heroes (and Villains) Who Love Them…

Helllooo friends, and welcome to another Space Game Junkie Podcast! This week, Jim and I sit down with Chris Adderley and Alex Catamo, the lead developers on Star Villains and Space Heroes. If you’re unaware, Star Villains and Space Heroes isn’t another fighter-based space game (though we all do love those), but rather a game of capital ship combat, something […]

SGJ Podcast #10: Infinite Spaces and Small Worlds

SGJ Podcast #09: Chasing Dots and Games

Welcome to episode #09 of the Space Game junkie Podcast! In this episode, Jim and I bring on Gamers With Jobs CEO Shawn “Certis” Andrich to discuss if space games are just “chasing a dot”, as he called them previous. In a surprise — to me at least, and pleasantly so — the discussion evolves […]

More Various Rules of Engagement Images

Hey y’all, remember that Q&A with Thomas Carbone & Maurice Molyneaux I did a while back? Well, shortly thereafter, Maurice was nice enough to send me a couple more images for me to share from Rules of Engagement’s inception. Sadly they got lost in the shuffle of sickness and busyness, but thankfully Maurice was kind enough […]

SGJ Podcast #01: Graphics vs. UI vs. Gameplay! FIGHT!

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 […]

Universe/Rules of Engagement Q&A with Thomas Carbone & Maurice Molyneaux

A little while back, on one of my Let’s Play Rules of Engagement 2 videos, the video received a comment from one of the gentlemen behind the game, Maurice Molyneaux. Maurice worked on both Rules of Engagement games, so we got to talking on YouTube and through email. I eventually asked if he’d like to do […]
