Star Trek: Ascendancy Review – Resistance Is Futile

I was practically raised on Star Trek. Not the original series where Shatner was so hammy you could have a lovely Sunday roast, but with the philosophical musings of The Next Generation, the tenacity of the Voyager crew and the wonderful characters of Deep Space Nine.

Mad Games Tycoon Review – I Made A Game About Making Games In A Game.

Dominating the videogame industry is surprisingly easy. Had I know, this I would surely have entered into the field at a young age and been a mult-billionaire by this point, swimming in cash acquired from willing suckers in lucrative free-to-play games.

On top of that I have in-house production that also lets me publish games from other developers as well as my own, a server room to support my numerous MMOs and training areas so that my staff can be the best possible. Also, there’s some kickin’ sound systems strewn about the place. Yup, domination is good.
