Just Another Day

Just Another Day is a story set 30 some years after "Departing a Day at Gridline Games" and "A Final Day at Gridline Games," and it is meant to inspire, not to offend. It is, after all, a work of fiction. As usual, you may find a few truths along the way!

Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. But shrouded within every story is a secret. There is no beginning, and there is no end. For something had always set the stage for the play to follow, and for when the final curtain had fallen, another play was set to begin; with the same players dressed for different parts. Throughout the untold ages, beings have fought, died and killed for the things they believed in. Sparked by their innate passions. Passion in and of itself is glorious. For without it, beings would never find their true calling. Their reason for being in the first place. In that passion, they have the potential to find love. The force for which none is greater. With love comes compassion and understanding. With these things comes oneness with all that was, is or ever will be. In essence, passion is an uncontrollable emotion. That which can also drive beings away from love; and drive them instead toward hate. The force which only serves to blind and confuse. If love opens a door, hate closes a door. Passion is therefore an eternal struggle; with the same players dressed for different parts. Every story has a middle.

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays from Space Ruckus and The Grig Post! May your holidays be bright and merry, and may all your heart's desires be met.

Space Ruckus' developers have moved on to other things over the years, but I am almost certain that they are together in spirit for the holidays. Be on the lookout for Micheal Cross' A Night at Camp Ravenwood in 2014: http://www.ravenwood-game.co.uk. Everyone else at camp will definitely be on the lookout! Micheal was and is the greatest concept artist in which Space Ruckus ever had, and his new game is sure to be a hit. If you happen to be in the mood for some awesome game and film music, also be certain to check out Aubrey Young's music site: http://aubreygyoungmusic.com. Aubrey once composed a few tracks for Space Ruckus, and they are still the very best in the project's collection. And for those that missed it, the Space Ruckus site received a face lift this year, but it had less to do with Space Ruckus itself and more to do with building a slightly better template for use in other places: http://www.spaceruckus.com. All things considered, it is still a prettier vault for all that old content!

As for Space Ruckus' very own Bill Grig, he looks on from Ralin V with a smile on his face. Peace has come to his and the Velorian people. All that war effort was really just a drain on both economies. Working together has accomplished so much more for both races. They have nearly wiped out all diseases! It would seem that the Velorians still do not care much for the Ralin V fleet's silly helmet design, though. You cannot win them all!

Peace to everyone this holiday season, and a very happy new year!

Farewell, 1UP!

I am saddened to hear about the closure of 1UP, and seeing as everyone else is writing a farewell blog, I thought that I would do the same. I have been a 1UP member for so long, I do not recall exactly when I began, but it looks like I only started blogging there in 2006. For some of you, 2006 is probably still a very long time ago. One of the curses of getting older is that time seems to fly by faster. Oh, look, it has already been 30 minutes since I committed to writing this!



Throughout the course of this wild 1UP train ride, I met a number of wonderful people. Some of which I am still in contact with! 1UP.com was always my first stop for gaming news. The cover stories were always informative reads, and a blast to give feedback on. Most of all, I enjoyed seeing the positive feedback to many of my own blogs. It helped encourage me to continue writing.

Farewell, 1UP! I will be thinking of you every time I open my web browser for news... or gain an extra life in Super Mario Bros. Just for you, I am going to touch the very top of that flagpole!
