Thoughts on the Green Lanterns Rebirth

Again, the time between blogging shows itself by looking back at where Green Lantern was versus where it is now. The announcement of the Rebirth Green Lantern titles struck me as a very odd move by DC. The main monthly book, Green Lantern, became Green Lanterns focusing on newbie Lanterns Simon Baz and Jessica Cruz.... Continue Reading →

Still Boldly Going

Its interesting to see that my last Star Trek Online post covered the controversy over the tier 6 ships.  Of course that's a fading memory now, with tier 6 the norm, and many of the key tier 5 ships subsequently replaced by new and improved tier 5 versions.  The panic over the intel ships did...

Elite Dangerous on PS4: First Thoughts

So, this week saw the final release of Elite Dangerous for PS4.  Something that had been hotly anticipated for some time, since the XBox release was confirmed.   Last night I managed to get a (very) quick shot at it, which was also my first exposure to the new tutorials. I've been looking forward to... Continue Reading →

The path to Elite

Its been really interesting to see the game grow and develop over that time.  Especially in comparison to other games in the genre, which have often... Continue Reading →

Tier 6 Ships

Yup, another Star Trek Online blog. A bit dull. I was going to do a Referendum one, but it ended up drafted and redrafted so much it eventually didn't seem worth it.  Maybe I'll work on a Doctor Who/Capaldi one instead. Anyway, Star Trek Online has announced it's second expansion with Delta Rising coming out... Continue Reading →

Constellation Class

One of the final ships from the TV series has finally made it into Star Trek Online, as the Constellation class has been released. Best known for Captain Picard's first command, the USS Stargazer, the Constellation class has been a favourite since its début in season 1 of Next Generation, bringing ships with four warp...

Babylon Station?

I'm a player in the beta of Elite Dangerous.  I never played the original but have long been drawn to that kind of game, and so far the beta is all kinds of fun.  To the point that I can't really envisage what the game's going to be like in its full scope with thousands... Continue Reading →
