    Okay, I’m biased … but it’s nice to see Leviathans get such a nice big writeup – and in the headline slot too!

    Nice magazine but the Flash website is a bit of an annoyance

    Ditto, Zac.

    Odd, an article on Steampunk games and Malifaux’s skipped.

      To be honest, I find the inclusion of Warmachine alongside those other three games to be a bit of a “huh?” The scales are are so vastly different that putting them in the same article seems a bit apples and oranges.

        Hey Zac,

        As always, thanks for posting the magazine up on TGN.

        Battlespace used to be hosted on a WordPress site but the coding was causing too much instability for me. I switched to Wix in order to provide some stability, but as you suggest, Flash-based websites are problematic for the iPad and mobiles. I’m looking to move to a new provider in the future if I can find the right one.

        Keltheos, Veritas:

        It would have been great to include all the steam-based games past and present as part of the feature, but it just wasn’t possible to put together with an entire magazine covering all gaming systems.

        While Warmachines may not have been in the same style as the other three games, I think with the Kador faction it clearly has taken on the steam-powered ethos, which was the theme of the issue.

        I am always open to suggestions for future issues. Thanks for reading Battlespace.

          I hear you 🙂 Email me if you want to chat about making WP more traffic resistant

          It also stops people from right clicking to download files and also stops people from getting the URLs to email people.
