Gosh, has it really been over two years since I dabbled in Pirate Galaxy? The browser-based space ‘em up has been growing apace since that time and has just announced a major update. They explain: “All changes will result in the exploration of the Sirius Singularity being significantly easier, and even small clans will be able to get the most out of the game. The difficulty level has been adapted to smaller groups of players, and there are now over 750 technologies to collect. More updates are already in the planning stages.” Hmm, that probably means something to people who played Pirate Galaxy more recently than I did. Anyway, the MMO continues to offer a light snack of space combat and exploration, and is probably worth a look if you want multiplayer intergalactic adventures but can’t stomach the full Eve Online space diet.

These thoughts continue below.
