We love games here at PlaySF, especially ones with spaceships. And explosions. Lots of explosions.
Sharing those explosions is even better, so I’ll be running a regular ‘After Action Report’ feature here on the blog. I’ll be playing one of the many excellent 4X space strategy games we’ve reviewed or featured in the mag and bringing you the tales of my dastardly space exploits – or my horrific death, whichever comes first. Maybe if you guys ask really nicely, Richie’ll play too!
Here are the choices for my first stellar campiagn: Star Ruler, Sword of the Stars: Complete Collection (both reviewed in Issue 01), Sword of the Stars II: Lords of Winter, Distant Worlds, Armada 2526 or Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion (all appearing in Issue 02).
If you have a preference for the game I should be trying first, hurl your thoughts at us in a comment, and let the spacewar commence!
