Lost Planet: Extreme Condition | Done

OK, here's a game I completed back in December 2021 but I didn't have a lot of mental energy to write about it. I was planning on working on the trilogy, but after I read some reviews of the sequels (and how the first one was the better of the trilogy), I decided to set aside the sequels, for now :-)True to Kojima games, this was very Japanese in its art style, a type of game I haven't played in a

Star Trek Online: The Pathyaeger

 Here's another April Fools... this time from Star Trek Online, a mashup of the Pathfinder and the Yaeger (and yes, I'd fly this... if it weren't exploding when you first set foot on it 😂)From the announcement:The Pathyeager was the brainchild of Starfleet’s first Pakled ship designer, Nahamcam [Nuh-ham-kam], inspired by the old Dominion War-era USS Yeager and the Clumpships of the 2380s.Splicing

Juiced.GS to be acquired by Microsoft

Well, here's the first April Fools joke today.  This comes from the web-based magazine Juiced.GS, a magazine that writes about the Apple ][ GS.  Apparently it's 1998 and it's being acquired by Micro$oft ;-)A bit of copy/paste from the email I read this morning:APRIL 1, 2022 — LEOMINSTER, MA — Microsoft, hot on the heels of its acquisition of Activision Blizzard, has announced

Review: Star Trek: Voyager: Architects of Infinity

Architects of Infinity by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 5 of 5 stars OK, this one ended in a "WTF" moment for me?  Eh... whut?On the plus side, I did remember the Kriotians from TNG's "the perfect mate," which made for an interesting sub-plot in the book.  The biodomes on a dead planet were an interesting main plot, but OMG.  You find an abandoned paradise?

Review: Star Trek Voyager: A Pocket Full of Lies

A Pocket Full of Lies by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars That was pretty interesting!  Tuvok comes back for a special mission and gets an unexpected breakthrough for the stuff he's dealing with.  There's another Janeway (how many of them are around?!) and yes...there are temporal shenanigans happening...so the Krenim aren't that far behind.

Review: Star Trek Voyager: Atonement

Atonement by Kirsten Beyer My rating: 4 of 5 stars Good to see a conclusion to the Paris family court drama, which also parallels the conclusion of the Janeway tribunal drama.  Overall, this was a good story.  For the Voyager kids who've entered the academy, it's also interesting to see that college...errr..the academy isn't the only path forward.From the

Review: Kingdom Of The Damned

Kingdom Of The Damned by Michael Jan Friedman My rating: 3 of 5 stars A collection of stories where Q is being Q and turns the entire crew (except for Data) into Klingons just to mess with them.  Of course, the Enterprise is playing taxi service to a bunch of aliens that don't like Klingons, so Q is getting his laughs in.  Not bad, overall.  I think
