  1. SO excited that J. J. Abrams will be directing the next Star Wars film. Star Trek, Super 8 and Cloverfield were all awesome. I mean...anything's gonna be better than the prequels though right?!
  2. September 12th...new iPhone...almost here!
  3. Official iTunes Guys From Andromeda podcasts have been updated to now include fourteen podcasts including all the great commentaries and interviews from the kickstarter! REALLY cool stuff. Let's hope it continues to be regularly updated with news and more cool stuff! http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/guys-from-andromeda-podcast/id519822198
  4. Anyone else excited for Taken 2?! P.s. How do I embed a YT video?
  5. Level 33 Demon Hunter on Nightmare difficulty right now. Good but Normal was WAY too easy. The difficulty level Nightmare has is what Normal should have been. I died less than five times in the 28 hours it took me to defeat the game. The final boss was the only one who was remotely difficult to beat. Azmodan was a joke and I didn't even lose one bit of health while fighting him.
  6. Kickstarter Update #52 Hey everyone! We are excited to announce that the official SpaceVenture backers website is going live! Woa slow down there SpaceVenturer, before you get to excited, please be sure to read all of this post carefully. We are adding thousands of user accounts into the website database. All of these accounts have to be put into proper groups so you guys all have access to the digital content goodness you came here for. Some of you will get your log on info sooner than others, please continue to be patient and give us time to get everyone added. Once you've been added you'll receive an email containing log on info and password. There is very little content on the website at the moment. We have a lot that will be added but want to make sure the account creation process for everyone goes smoothly first! Please give us a few days to get everyone added. Please do not attempt to manually create an account as this could disrupt the creation process. Don't forget to spread the word so we can meet some of the new stretch goals that are available! Thanks so much everyone! PS- Living concept art 5 is on the way! ------ http://www.kickstart...ue/posts/261574
  7. So. Prometheus. Wow! What an incredible movie! Did you all like it as much as I did? I thought its only flaw was its character development. I'd liked there to have been some more scenes which delved into the individual characters a bit more, but apart from that I really thought this was an incredible movie. I especially love how it's opened up the Alien franchise so much. It's really broadened the scope of the series and I hope there's more movies to come! And that caesarian scene? Wow. Talk about tension!
  8. Hahaha yes! I was starting to think I was alone here. I shoulda known this might happen before starting the thread though. Truthfully, Windows is really the only serious platform for desktop computer gaming, as a Mac fan I can admit that quite freely. Though one can install Windows ON a Mac. Regardless, never wanted this thread to turn into a Mac vs. PC thread though. It was kinda intended as a place for Space Quest fans who also happened to be Apple fans to come and discuss the company and its latest news and products. Oh well. Worse things happen at sea. Y'all gotta admit though. The new retina MacBook Pro is HOT! 2.7GHz i7 Quad Core Ivy Bridge processor with turboboost up to 3.7GHz 16GB DDR3SL Ram 768GB SSD NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1GB of GDDR5 memory AND Intel HD Graphics 4000 2880 x 1800 15" retina display And all in an incredibly thin and light form factor! Just awesome.
  9. Bahahaha this is too cool...love it.
  10. Pretty excited and so proud to be a part of this whole thing.
  11. Chattin' with Scott on twitter. Asked him if SV will have a stand alone demo like Space Quest 6 did. Answer: "Eventually, yes. You have to be well into the development process to make one worth producing. Things change". INNNTERESTING.
  12. WWDC in just under three days! Can't wait. Tim Cook should be introducing a new line of MacBook Pro's, i06, OSX Mountain Lion and possibly a new Mac Pro and MAYBE even the new iPhone. Lots of rumours swirling around right now.
  13. Excellent Kotaku article. Today is really turning out to be a media blitz! http://kotaku.com/5915096/the-falling+out-and-heartwarming-reunion-of-the-guys-who-made-space-quest
  14. Gamasutra article below! Good stuff! Warning: This is not the FULL Gamasutra article that was released on 01/06/2012. To read that please follow this link. It's too long to repost. http://gamasutra.com/view/feature/171021/the_20year_estrangement_of_the_.php ----- How Space Quest's creative duo buried the hatchet after 20 years apart Twenty years ago, game development duo Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, having shipped four games in Sierra On-Line's Space Questseries, parted ways after a falling out. For many graphical adventure game fans, it was a premature ending to a partnership that should have told many more stories. Recently, Murphy and Crowe -- affectionately known by their fans as The Two Guys From Andromeda -- set aside their differences and launched a Kickstarter campaign to make a brand new adventure game together. "I realized years ago it was our partnership that made these games great, and it's something I haven't experienced in the last 15, 20 years since I've been away from Sierra," Crowe tells Gamasutra in ourexclusive interview. "I realized how much I missed that… we’ve come full circle back to our original way of working together.” The duo were gracious enough to describe to us the high pressure environment at Sierra in the early 90s that led to their split, admitting that they were "younger and less mature" then. "Looking back, I realize I was a dick," Murphy tells us, laughing. More on the reunion -- and what's next for the only two Andromedans on Earth -- is in today's Gamasutra cover story. ----- http://www.gamasutra...years_apart.php
  15. New DG article with interview from Scott and Mark. Too long to post. http://gaming.do.co....a_interview.htm
  16. Done. Now a member of Xenon Special Forces.
  17. When the Two Guys kickstarter reaches $300 000. At present it's sitting at $272 937, so my guess is monday of next week.
  18. My pleasure s_d! I won't be able to listen every day though because if they happen at the same time as the one today, I will be working. I feel we do need people to listen and summarise the main points though. So maybe someone else could do this during Chris's next live podcast?
  19. Some news snippets from todays live podcast with Chris Pope Ken Allen MAY be involved with SpaceVenture's music. Chris's response to a question asking about this was "maybe he is, maybe he isn't" Gamasutra article is coming very soon. It had to get pushed back a little bit but it is coming Last twenty-four hours of kickstarter should see a massive increase in funds (as has been the case with other Kickstarters) but the Two Guys are not just banking on that Scott and Mark are soon doing a podcast with commentary on each Space Quest game The Minecraft project is not dominating time, Brandon Bloom Blume is heading that up and Chris’s time is being spent organising press and promo right now in what he's calling the two week blitz To clear up confusion, the double GOG package will be on the $150 tier Reddit AMA is coming very soon and should be a very interesting experience There will be a live, online wrap/chat party after the $500 000 is met
  20. *loosens collar* hehe...sooo....
  21. Hey guys, So one of the other things I'm interested in heavily, apart from SQ, is a lil old tech company called Apple. You MAY have heard of them. They're the ones that make those fancy devices called iCellphone. Or what it iPhone? iTabs? iPads? Eh I dunno. But seriously haha, I love discussing and speculating about their products and where they are going as a company. I'm just a massive fan of Apple and what they've accomplished since the late 70's, especially regarding the shift they would appear to be spearheading from desktop computing to mobile computing with the iPad. Seeing as its the eve of Tim Cook's first major interview as head of the company (he's headlining the D Conference and being interview by Walt Mossberg shortly), I thought it would be a good time to start a thread about Apple! So who uses a Mac? An iPad? Are you too fascinated by iOS, OSX and all things Apple? If so, let's discuss! StellarSoul
  22. LOVING the positive press. So awesome. just the thing we need to lift spirits. Clearly affecting contributions too. Yesterday was the biggest day of the kickstarter since the first three days. $14 765.
  23. TechCrunch Article ------ The Authors of SpaceQuest are Back With Another Adventure If you’re an older gamer, you will remember the holy trinity of Sierra RPGs – King’s Quest, Space Quest, and Police Quest. All three of these games used something called “imagination” and “storytelling” to immerse early gamers in an Ad Lib sound card-induced gaming coma. Now you can re-live those heady days with a new game by the makers of Space Quest, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe (aka “The Two Guys from Andromeda”). Their new game, called SpaceVenture, is a refresh of the old Sierra series and promises spills, chills, and horrible jokes. It’s getting funded onKickstarter as we speak. The best part? They hired the original voice actors to spice up the game including Gary Owens, the voice of Space Ghost, and Ellen McLain who plays GlaDOS in Portal 1 and 2. Talk about your crossovers. The game will cost $15 for early pledgers and runs on Macs, PCs, iOS, and Android. The $30 tier gets you beta access to the game and a soundtrack download. The game is halfway to its goal with 15 days to go, so get pledging, space cadet. Project Page ------ http://techcrunch.co...ther-adventure/
  24. Great new article from the folks over at Capsule Computers! ------ Space Quest Creators Reunite for New Game Have you heard? An old adventure game developer is using Kickstarter to fund a brand new point-and-click adventure game! Tim who? Double what? No, I’m talking about the Two Guys From Andromeda, creators of the classic Space Quest series of the eighties and nineties. In case you haven’t donated to enough Kickstarter projects lately, Scott Murphy and Mark Crowe, the aforementioned Two Guys, have reunited and are asking for $500,000 before Tuesday June 12 to develop a new Space Quest game. The guys are clearly passionate about the opportunity, and they already have a stellar cast of video game voice actors ready to participate: there’s Gary Owens, narrator from some previous SQ games;Robert Clotworthy (Jim Raynor from StarCraft 1 & 2); Ellen McLaine (GlaDOS and the turrets from Portal 1 & 2, The Administrator from Team Fortress 2); John Patrick Lowrie (Sniper from TF2, Sword Control from Halo: Reach); and Rob Paulsen (Pinky & The Brain, Animaniacs, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Monkey Island). At the time of writing, the project has already raised almost half of that amount, and with two more weeks to go, it’s likely the target will be reached. So go help them out on Kickstarter, where there’s a crazy amount of information on the project, as well as some rather generous pledge rewards. And keep up to date with all things Space Quest at guysfromandromeda.com. ------ http://www.capsuleco...e-for-new-game/
