The Road to Colonia

The main focus of my Elite Dangerous gaming for over a month now has been the trip out to Colonia. For a bit of background, in game Jaques Station attempted a jump across the galaxy but went missing. It was discovered near to the galactic core, for the first time giving explorers in that region... 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...

The path to Elite

So when I was last updating this blog, Elite Dangerous was still in beta.  Those days are long gone now as the game is now over 2 years old. 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 →

Marvel Heroes

I've been spending the last week or two playing the new, free to play MMO Marvel Heroes.  I'll not repeat my thoughts here, as I've got a fairly lengthy review posted on Outpost Skaro.  Check it out, and I hope you'll be convinced to check the game out (short version: I'm enjoying it, but  I...

Legacy of Romulus

The first ever expansion to Star Trek Online will be released this week, and I've been fortunate to play through some of it during the beta stages.  Introducing the Romulans as a third playable faction, the expansion gives us the backstory to the new Romulan Republic introduced during the New Romulus launch, as well as...
