SGJ Podcast #67: Lamenting X-Wing Alliance

Forget the Guns! Ramming Speed!!
Forget the Guns! Ramming Speed!!

Welcome to this week’s Space Game Junkie Podcast! In this episode, Jim and I talk about another game celebrating its fifteenth birthday. It’s not Freespace 2 this time, oh no, it’s X-Wing Alliance, the last Star Wars game by Totally Games, and by far the most controversial. Some folks love it, some folks don’t, and folks like me are kinda “meh” on it, at least until one passes those AWFUL family missions. Jim and I discuss the game’s issues, its successes, and why it’s completely overshadowed by a game that came out five years before it. ;)

Please note, the video is much longer than the audio portion of the podcast this time because Jim began the stream far sooner, so if you wanna watch us spend around forty minutes trying various settings to lessen Jim’s lag, go for it. ;) If you want to skip that and just right to the actual podcast portion, you can jump to 42:13 in. Thanks for listening/watching, and we hope you enjoy the show!
