AssortedDan Spezzano let me know that he has started a new website called Maximum Pixelation, focusing on board games, but with PC and mobile gaming as well. I checked out the site and its pleasingly design, with plenty of content.
Last week I included this line in a post: "Christ, did used games kill Kennedy, too?" In response, reader Jamers Prendergast sent in this:
Draw your own conclusions.
Gloria sent me a link yesterday to an article in our local newspaper about a new Austin gaming company: called Escape Hatch Entertainment. They have a Kickstarter project for Starlight Inception. Here's a description from the Kickstarter page:
You assume the role of a young space fighter pilot assigned to the star carrier U.S.F. Independence, deploying to hotspots throughout the Solar System during World War IV.
Starlight Inception is a realistic and relevant 1st person (both with cockpit and without) / 3rd person strategic and tactical space combat experience. It has a unique blend of action with an involving storyline. Features include ship based combat both in space and on planets and moons, interplanetary exploration, and multiplayer dogfighting.
You had me at extrapolated Wing Commander.
