SGJ Podcast #97 – X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter and a Hodge Podge of Other Issues…

TIE Me Up...TIE Me Down...
TIE Me Up…TIE Me Down…

Hey folks, welcome to this week’s Space Game Junkie Podcast. This week, Jim and I bring on regular X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter wingman Hunter Mullins to talk about how wrong we were about this amazing game, plus a bunch of other topics. Unfortunately, partway through the recording, my Internet connection went all kerflibble, so we have an odd break in there. Thankfully things got sorted out, and we were able to continue the conversation. With the magic of editing, Jim saved the podcast, but sadly we lost video, so this will be an audio only podcast.

Thanks for listening folks, and stay tuned for next week’s show when we discuss TIE Fighter itself. YAY!

  1. Brian, glad you finally got to this emperor’s hammer site. I remember dropping you a link several month ago. Flown myself a lot of their mission back in like 1998, for Tie-Fighter game. Great stuff, especially battles, can even fly rebel crafts in some of these ! Yer olde schoole, has ta madify binary exe miself. no fancy lunchers these dais ^_^
    I’m still hesitant to try and get into XvT. now that it is on GOG. Broke my heart completely back in 1997, this one, since i was a mouse player through and through. Now i have nice Hotas and learning to work with it in Iwar. Is campaign any good, since i never had any love for MP?

    1. Dude, trust me, try XvT again. I too was heartbroken by it back in the day, but now I’ve done a total 180 on it and love it to pieces. And yeah, I’m sure it was you that implanted the idea for the EH site in my head. Now we have to test to see if their missions will work via multiplayer.

Chime In!
