We START talking about it, So Many Memories…


Welcome to this week’s show y’all! This week, Spaz, Julie, Thorston, Jacob, David (new co-host) and I fully intend to sit down and talk about the legendary developer/publisher house that was and is MicroProse. We START talking about it, and then find out that Why485, the developer of Tiny Combat Arena — an amazing MicroProse-inspired sim in its own right — had only just begun playing their games recently, so we pulled him in for an impromptu interview. It turned out to be one of our best shows, so we hope you enjoy it!





Next week we’ll talk about the ever-growing crisis facing gaming coming from such areas as “pay to earn” and such nonsense. As always, if you have any questions or comments, please drop them in the comments below, email us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums.

Hey friends, welcome to this week’s show! This week, Spaz, Julie, Thorston, Jacob and I have a short but sweet conversation about licensed games. We had a hard stop at an hour, so it’s a bit shorter than usual, but we had a lot of fun being pleasantly surprised and sadly shocked at not only how many licensed games there are, but which things get licensed games. Did you know there’s a late 80s adventure game based on the British comedy, “Yes, Prime Minister”? I didn’t. It makes for a fun show, and we hope you enjoy it.

Hey friends, welcome to this week’s show This week, Jim, Spaz, Hunter (finally returned from his big move, yay!) and I sit town to talk VR gaming. I was pretty against virtual reality for a long time, but Hunter eventually convinced me to get an Oculus Quest 2, which is truly an amazing piece of kit, so we talk about me being new to VR, Spaz’s experience with PSVR, how we’ve dealt with issues like motion sickness and the like, and generally try to convince Jim to get a Quest 2. It’s a lot of fun!





In two weeks (we’re skipping next week), we’ll be talking RTS games! As always, if you have any questions or comments, please drop them in the comments below, email us at hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums.
