Games available from GOG.com, formerly 'Great Old Games' but a store happy to sell modern games too.
Few games have ever been described as 'space opera' and even fewer of those have actually earned that title legitimately.
But Wing Commander certainly did.

There are surprisingly few games that have been as enthusiastically received by players as today's game, whilst being banned or censored in so many countries for its violence.
It can only be Carmageddon.

Welcome back to our Retro Month, where we're looking back at all kinds of older games. It is, perhaps, a little surprising that computer gaming has been around long enough to have a 'retro' aspect to it, but there we are.
Today's retro game is a cheeky little number called Gobliiins.

As I've suggested elsewhere, each month in the Game A Day journey, I'll be looking at a different theme, and just to break up that theme - in case it's a theme you really hate, and just for a bit of variety really - mid month we'll mix it up with a bonus update that doesn't fit with the theme of the month - and that's the Mid-Month Mix-Up! Today's Mix-Up is an oldie, but a goodie: Ultima Underworld - The Stygian Abyss.

Today's New Beginning sees us take on the first in a saga of one of the stalwarts of the indie RPG scene - Geneforge by Spiderweb Software.
Before we begin...
This one is something of a curiosity - it's one of the older series produced by Spiderweb Software, and even from the opening screen I can tell that it's been produced with someone who cares more about the details and depth of implementation than necessarily about it looking amazing.
