We’ll definitely want to check this out in October.

We’re giving UbiSoft’s Bridge Crew a try at the moment.

uhg, again, why do we get poor star trek games? the graphics look like ps2.

i agree, this game is almost laughable. In terms of both gameplay and graphics, it looks like something i would’ve expected to see on 3DS seven years ago.

I’ll probably still buy it anyways tho, just ‘cuz it’s trek. but i don’t expect it to be good lol

I’ll be looking forward to seeing reviews on this, would really like to have a good Trek game for my Switch. Hopefully not ‘too’ juvenile.

I would imagine that it is about as juvenile as the show is.

Perhaps even more.

I think if it’s like 25th anniversary where it has puzzles and exploration on the planet with a good story and some starship combat to mix things up, will be a good game. If it is just a top down shooter well, I don’t think it will compete with Minecraft Dungeons.

I feel harsh judging the game given the show its based on and its intended audience. I just feel like it might fall through the cracks where the market is concerned. Good move putting it out on Switch though.

I’m still very much looking forward to ST: Resurgence, although it’s all gone quiet on that front in recent months. Resurgence looks like a step in the right direction, but there’s a still a long way to go to get back to the golden era of Trek gaming. I can only hope SNW does so well that it allows for a big budget Trek game to be developed somewhere along the way.

Star Wars definitely wins between the two franchises when it comes to gaming currently. Although, to be fair, it’s a lot easier to translate into a game, with all that pew pew-ing etc.

Good point about Resurgence.

We’d been looking to see if a release date was confirmed for PC gaming and realized that there’s been radio silence.

It was originally supposed to be a Spring release, but I guess we’re passed that now. Would they release two Trek games within the same Fall release window? Seems unlikely. Hopefully we hear something soon though.

where is Resurgence?! i hope this doesn’t come out before STR….ugh i don’t want a fisher price star trek game
