    It is good to get signs of life, even if we see you in other forums. Probably healthy to take a break from space sims now and then. Man cannot live on space sims alone, that’s from the old testament. Of some alien text, I imagine.

    As for me, I’m playing the most random crap. At the moment, I am simultaneously playing Binary Domain on the 360, Puzzle agent 2 and the Darkness 2 on PC, and various iOS mini games. I will never get in front of my backlog, so I just try to enjoy the feeling of encroaching doom as it slowly drowns me.

    Well thanks to your reviews I bought a new computer and have been playing Distant Worlds Legend for a week now. Still getting my butt kicked and having trouble getting used to the game controls.

    A word of warning to you. No matter if it’s ‘living together’ or married, once the two of you occupy the same space on a permanent basis you will learn things about your partner you never suspected.Some will be wonderful. Some less so. Before we were married (after dating for five years and a one year engagement) we were walking through a store and she said “We need to buy air filters”. “Why” I asked. “Well, I’m allergic to cigarette smoke”. I nearly fell to the floor. I’ve been smoking around her all this time and never a word or even a hint she had a problem then “WHAM!”. After we were married, she insisted on sleeping with the window open. I had never done that since childhood and in all the times we’d spent the night together, she’d never indicated it was a problem.

    So buckle your belt, you’re in for some surprises in the coming weeks/months. I wish you both well with it.

    For me it’s the other way round. I’m all into space games lately. So I pre-ordered Miner Wars earlier this week and the new Star Lords just today, which won’t start right now. Well, then I’m gonna play some Drox Operative instead :D

    Thanks for the comments everyone, much appreciated, and welcome to the blog William and nes! :) William, thanks also for your advice. She’s basically been living here half a week each week since we began dating two years ago, so we’ve a pretty good idea how things will be (though the’s girlifying the place more and more each day). ;)

      I’ve been here for a while :P we communicated a week or two ago via email about post notifications even!

      • Brian Rubin says:

        Oohhh, okay, hi there then! :) Sorry I’ve not had time to look into that. That was your first comment here though, so I always say welcome when someone comments for the first time. :)

  7. i have taken a break from space sims myself. right now i’m playing Dragon’s Dogma on 360. just started it but it’s very fun so far.

    Infamous 2 is a sweet ass game btw. i’ve beaten it twice and now have the ability to buy both good and bad powers. I just got it again with that sweet ps plus deal they got going now. 12 free games!!! And i read they are giving away the first 2 ep’s. of The Walking Dead game this month. Been wanting to give that a try.

    So…you not play Drox Operative anymore?

    • Brian Rubin says:

      I’ve not in a couple of weeks, but it’s not like I won’t. ;)

      • well if no other game is calling your name…then why not? play it. ya know ya wanna

        • Brian Rubin says:

          Right now inFamous 2 is calling my name. Also, part of me feels guilty if I play space games while not updating as much as I’d like, you know? Like I wanna save it for when I have more time to dedicate to the blog.
