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 →

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...

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...

Blog Update

Ok, first things first.  This blog is not dead.  Its merely resting.  Real life at the moment means I'm not getting as much chance to write random musings on tech, comics and games as I'd like too, and the blog is probably the main place where that's most obvious. That said, I'm still going to... Continue Reading →

Star Wars The Old Republic

Well, the NDA got lifted in time for this weekend's big stress test inviting on pretty much anyone who was interested in getting a beta code, so I can finally talk about how much I've been loving Star Wars The Old Republic. Being a huge fan of the previous Knights of the Old Republic games,... Continue Reading →

STO Goes Free 2 Play

Or, why I cancelled my Star Trek Online Subscription... My intention here is not to have some kind of "Wahhh!  Rage Quit!" post.  Indeed the opposite is very true.  I fully intend to keep playing the game and making purchases from the C-Store, as I still really enjoy playing Star Trek Online.  Neither is this...
