I feel a little bit misled on what I played, because although this is billed as ‘playing the villain’ it feels like nothing of the sort, both because you also get to play sections of the campaign as Luke Skywalker, Lando Calrissian, Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo and Kylo Ren, and also because that’s just not how the storyline ends up feeling to you as a player.

Before 1993 I knew nothing about racing in the United States besides it being a host for Formula One Grand Prix events, but when my fellow Brit Nigel Mansell departed to race in IndyCar, my eyes were opened; Suddenly I started to read about it in Autosport where I’d ignored it before, and thanks to Papyrus software titles like NASCAR Racing, Indy 500 – The Simulation, IndyCar Racing and IndyCar Racing II (also known as CART Racing), my attachment to racing in North America grew even more as I raced in my own home.
I now live three hours north of Indianapolis Motor Speedway, and have worked in the sim racing industry since 2005. Fast forward to the present, and I’ve been lucky enough through work to experience Indianapolis Motor Speedway in a way that few have or ever will… Continue reading
The game is beautiful in a very strange way that is difficult to put into words, because the first time that you see a town draped in colorful banners and see soldiers in shiny uniforms marching along in perfect lines, it’s almost too easy to overlook the fact that those are Swastikas and Schutzstaffel insignia. The design team did a superb job mixing Americana with the emblems and atmosphere of an occupying Nazi force, just as they did with the war-torn cities and run-down abandoned buildings… Continue reading
Starting over in this vast universe by turning back the clock is something many of us would like to do, but the facts are, no matter how close you come to the Black Hole, time only marches forwards. While it may have made life less complicated, losing my ship and finding myself back in the Sidewinder certainly didn’t make things easier, but as I record this entry, I already find myself back in the fight.

I’m trying really hard to get my groove back, and part of that has been going back into my history and playing a few retro games occasionally. Another World is a game I first completed on the Commodore Amiga A600, and one I consider to be one of the best games of all-time. In the video within this post you can see a complete playthrough of the 15th anniversary edition of Another World (also known as ‘Out of This World’ and ‘Outer World’ on some platforms). This anniversary edition had quite a few graphical upgrades, but still held onto the retro graphics feel in a very pleasing way. I still absolutely adore it!
If you never intend to play this game yourself, or you need help getting past a puzzle, check it out… Continue reading
Following the completion of the 3302 Galactic Nebula Expedition, I very slowly made my way across the galaxy towards my plotted route to Beagle Point.
After the discoveries of a number of water world’s on-route, I used a series of Neutron stars to speed up my travel. I got all the way to TEQUIA BP-A D913 before things went bad… Continue reading
