Site Note: A Slightly Important Update about Game Coverage

Super Star Trek
I Am SO Sorry Super Star Trek

Hey y’all, how are ya? I hope you’re all having an enjoyable Sunday. :) I’m writing because I’ve been thinking a lot about my reviews and previews on this site and how to try to do them more effectively. First off, to the developers and PR folks who have sent me copies of their games which I’ve yet to cover, thank you for your patience. I’m trying to make sure no games have fallen through the cracks, and have updated my coming soon list on the sidebar to hopefully reflect every new and upcoming game I’ve been sent that still is waiting for coverage.

This will hopefully help make me publicly accountable for game coverage of games currently coming out or in production. By putting my feet to the fire, this will serve as a constant reminder of the work I have to do to give every game developer their due. ;) Please note some games might not be on this list due to timeliness, such as StarDrive, which I plan to do another preview of soon since folks are asking me about it. ;) Please know, though, that I WILL get to your game, and I again ask and thank you for your patience as I go through them all. Also, if you’re someone who has sent me a game, and you don’t see it on my coming soon list, please feel free to comment below or contact me directly and slap my wrist to remind me. ;)

Secondly, in all the madness to cover new and upcoming games as best I can, I’ve lost sight of the list of games that was part of the impetus to create this site in the first place, the next on the list being 1978’s Super Star Trek. To that end, I’ve decided that I’m going to tackle the list on a concurrent basis with covering new and upcoming games as well, to hopefully kill two birds with one stone. This means after a review of a new game or a preview of an upcoming game, you might see a review of a classic slipped in as well.

I hope these changes make sense for both readers and developers, and I hope it leads to a more enjoyable experience for everyone as a whole. In closing, I want to again thank you for visiting my little love letter to space gaming here, as every individual visit I get, every comment I see and every email I receive all mean the world to me. You all are a source of constant joy in my life, and I don’t think I can thank you all enough for that. :) Thanks again, and have a great day. :)

  1. Hi Brian. I returned to the world of gaming about a year ago. I just want you to know that I love your site and keep it on my toolbar. You are doing a great job of getting newbies like myself interested in space sim games. I have purchased a few hoping to have time this summer to dedicate to learning them and appreciate your in depth coverage of news, previews and reviews surround space games. Your dedication and passion for the genre has not gone unnoticed,

    1. Welcome to the comments Dave, and thank you SO much for your kind words, it seriously gladdens my heart! :)

  2. Oh wow! I played Super Star Trek! I’d completely forgotten about it until I saw that screencap! It was when I was under 10, and I played it on my dad’s home-built kit computer (back then home-built meant using a soldering iron!). It was probably one of the first computer games I ever played! Thanks for reminding me of it Brian :)

    1. Hey Neil, welcome, and yeah, brings back memories don’t it? :) It likely still holds up too, if playing its predecessor is any indication. :)

  3. Good stuff Brian – it’d be great from a developer perspective to see some of the old boys dragged into the blowtorch of modern day gaming :) I bet some of them will stand the test of time a lot better than some of their contemporary offerings ;) Also, it’s great for inspiration! Bring ’em on!

      1. Well once you do Super Star Trek, I suppose I will have to change my banner to another game. Maybe Psi 5 Trading Company :)

Chime In!
