Gemini Loves Company Update ID

PC Gamer has launched a new best space games article. For starters, the list is rather long with more than 30 titles, and since it's "space games" rather than "space sims," there's some diverse jumping around between genres, which makes this one interesting. The majority of items here are from just the last few years, but there are three from the '90s: Privateer in 1993, Tie Fighter circa 1994 and The Dig from 1995. Rarely would we expect to see this trio called out amongst the likes of Destiny 2, No Man's Sky and Kerbal Space Program. So all in all, it's an odd assortment, but that also means it pulls in a slightly different audience than normal. They also provide the GOG link, so hopefully this draws some new fans into the fold!

The Edge of The Darkening

We've unearthed a fascinating piece of pre-history: a detailed preview of Privateer 2: The Darkening from the August 1996 issue of Edge magazine... written when the game was still just called 'The Darkening!' The article includes a beautiful two-page gallery of artwork, plenty of pre-release screenshots and a surprising amount of technical detail about the game's development team. (2018-09-15)

Sticker Shock: Cross Promotion

eBay find: as part of the marketing for the Wing Commander movie in 1999, they sent out little promo stickers retailers could add to their existing stock of Wing Commander games... so you know this copy of Prophecy was still on the shelves about 18 months after release! (2018-09-14)
