Fancy New Review!
« on: April 18, 2009, 06:42:40 am »

Greetings, hunams!

I recently released a new videocast review of UQM, and smack my forehead, I didn't even mention it here.

So .. um... I'm mentioning it.  Here, in fact.  Precisely here, actually: http://longtailgamer.com/14/show-notes/ur-quan-masters -- so now you know.  Go here.  By which I mean there.

UQM is my favorite game of all time.  It seemed only fitting to do my first show with great reverence and homage and other such niceties.   Some people have already told me that they've heard of UQM but never played it, and now they're downloading it at last.  So that's my best to get people to play the game, and it worked!  Hooray!

Thanks for checking it out, if you do!  If you don't, well...  I dunno.  I guess I'm a little hurt by that, but not much.  Being ignored by the Internet isn't the worst thing that ever happened to me, I'm sure.

Cheers!

Nice show. I personally would have said some more about the quality of story and the humorous dialogs, as those are my favorite aspects of the game.
It's always nice to see Star Control getting some more attention. How big is your audience?

Cool. Star Controller will probably feature this as soon as Anthony checks the forum again.

Meep-Eep, you raise a great point.  I wish I'd thought to add more of the dialog in.  It really does make the whole game shine.

Ah well, live and learn.  Maybe in my next life as a Pkunk I'll remember the ancient wisdom a little more clearly.

[EDIT] And because you ask, my audience is .. um ... (counts on fingers) ... more than ten.   I'm getting good responses and the access logs on the website get bigger and bigger.  Hopefully the show's audience will grow like a Mycon pod and shatter the Earth!

I guess stopping just short of that point would be okay too, though.

Huh, wonder how I missed this. Probably to busy playing my silly games. anyhow, I made a news post over at PNF. The RSS feed reaches a few more people, so it might get you some page hits.

I'll start writing about it soon.

That was an awesome review, Cameron.  I'm still hoping that TFB will get a chance to make a new Star Control.  Star Control needs all the publicity it can get.

Thanks for the props, fellows!  I have reciprocated with links to your own sites.  It's lovely how the Internet works like that sometimes.

Yay!

Typo in those links: The wiki is called the "Ultronomicon" (after the Ultron), not "Ultranomicon".

OH NO!  I broke the Ultronomicon!

I don the mask of ultimate embarrassment and shame.

Okay.  Fixed now ...  THE POWER!  IT FILLS ME!!!

While it's nice of you to link the SCDB, I think it's best that I point out that this is in fact the discussion board for Pages of Now and Forever, the site you already have linked. So the news post I made actually shows up in both the forum, and on the PNF main page. And goes out on the RSS feed for PNF to whatever golden oldies reads that.

Your mentioning Bob the Angry Flower reminds me that there's a Star Control reference in Kingdom of Loathing, in the position of the rainbow islands, which is pointing off to the northeast.

Good point. I've added it to http://wiki.uqm.stack.nl/References_to_Star_Control_in_other_works.
