Space Game General All-Platform Thready Discussy Thing :)

No longer exclusive to Steam! And absurdly cheap at $15. Very good if you want a traveller meets baldurs gate style game complete with jank.

Unlike Stone Shard this game lets you skip the annoying intro quest fluff and I recommend you do so.

Is still in development so not final release if that matters to you.

And there is lots of jank.

Oh you can skip the intro stuff now? Thank jesus. That spider fight is so fucking annoying.

Well more skip the ship stuff at the start. You still need to exit the cave stuff :(

God fucking dammit.

The short vision/sight range makes those spiders really annoying. I don’t see why it’s necessary unless your maps are huge or the spiders are tiny. (Neither of which are true.)

Let me throw in the “wait the turn button is actually the rotate character in combat button???” on the list of annoying things. Yes the jank is real in this one :) I still love it though. But you are both right, some really annoying things.

Well I was “following” Stellar Tactics on Steam, but apparently that doesn’t do much, so I put it on my wish list. Thanks for the remind.

For this week’s op-ed, I talk about the realization as to how I’m spending my off-stream gaming time, and how sometimes one even needs reminders to do the things they love and enjoy.

That’s it for this upcoming week, my wonderful friends. Hope to see y’all at something! :)

Whoa whoa == Battle for Middle Earth? But … where? How?

I have actual disk copies my friend.

And if anyone in the world said that I would cop a disbelieve… now I will be there on Wednesday to see it!

Huzzah!

Welcome back to another week of spacey gaming goodness, my friends! This week’s game of the week is the massive 2D space exploration game, Stellaxy!

Moving on from pre-recorded content, here’s this week’s streaming schedule (please remember, all times are Pacific):

  • Monday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Starships Unlimited stream. Plus a plan B if the game ends prematurely, which I reckon it might.

  • Friday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Mass Effect 2 stream. Sh#t is starting to get real.

You can see all of our planned upcoming streams and events on our calendar, as always!

You can watch any of these streams on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook and several other locations.

For this week’s op-ed, I talk about finding a game that immediately hits all the right notes just by reading its blurb on steam. I bought it sight unseen and was not disapponted. ;)

Finally, my friends, I could use your help, to both grow my stream viewership and my endurance. Starting this week, for every five new people who like/follow/subscribe during a stream, I’ll add thirty minutes onto the stream. You can find more details here.

That’s it for this upcoming week, my amazing friends! Hope to see y’all somewhere online!

The game is indeed super fun and fantastic. I have minor gripes with the UI and stability, but nothing too serious (as it happens pretty late in the game, when you are running a large fleet).

I think the dev knows about those issues, he talked about them on the podcast.

BTW, he’s from Poland, right, given his last name?

Welcome back to another week of spacey gaming greatness my friends! This week, we were gonna do a full game of the week covering the reail shooter shmup thing, Omnibion War, but it’s so bad I could only get through a couple entries, so I’ll have some other videos for you later in the week as well.

Moving on from pre-recorded content, here’s this week’s streaming schedule (please remember, all times are Pacific):

  • Monday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Starships Unlimited stream. Plus a plan B if the game ends prematurely. 1:00 PM-2:00PM, Bloody Rally Show Stream and Giveaway, since we had so much fun last time!
  • Tuesday - 6:00 AM-8:00 AM, Avorion developer interview podcast live recording and giveaway. 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, ARK: Genesis Part 1 total n00b stream.
  • Wednesday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Mainframe Defenders stream.
  • Thursday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Steel Armor: Blaze of War stream. 4:00 PM-6:00 PM, Dying Light LAN Party stream, keeping the fifth-anniversary love ongoing!
  • Friday - 9:00 AM-12:00 PM, Mass Effect 3 stream. We finished 2, and I wasn’t sure if we’d keep going, but I GOTTA SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN 3. 1:00PM - ???, come join us in chat as we hang out and talk about our week in Jamming with Jumpgate.

You can watch any of these streams on Twitch, and you can see all of our planned upcoming streams and events on our calendar, as always!

For this week’s op-ed, my brain is mush, so it’s kind of all over the place this week.

I’m continuing the challenge I began last week, which you can read about here. For every five new subscribers I add thirty minutes to my stream. Tell your friends. ;)

Finally, I’ve decided to move solely over to Twitch for streaming (with archives uploaded to YouTube the next day), so if you’ve not followed me there, I invite you to do so, and thank you.

That’s it for this upcoming week, my beloved friends! I hope to see y’all around online somewhere.

Wow, that 6 AM start time for tomorrow’s podcast sounds rough! But maybe you’re an early riser by nature? (I am definitely not)

Nah I’m more of a late morning/mid-afternoon person. These early podcasts are rough, but what am I gonna do when the guests are overseas? It’s worth it, but yeah, wow.
