When I started this blog in 2003, it was well before Facebook, Twitter and other social networks – I did it as a service to the Xbox community where anyone could stop by and catch up on the latest Xbox news, game releases and leave a comment. There are now thousands of places online where real time and spirited conversation are taking place, therefore blog comments (at least here) have become rather quiet as the majority of conversations have moved to Twitter, Facebook, Reddit etc.

As such, starting today the ability to leave a comment on the blog is no longer available.

Thanks for your continued support and understanding and feel free to reach out to me on Twitter or via email if you have further questions.

TL;dr As of today, I am removing the ability to leave a comment on this site. Everything else stays the same.

Mining Rail is a roller coaster game. Get into your mine cart and drive at high speed along the railway track, getting through the mine to the exit and down to the valley. The track is steep, the curves tight and the force tries to take your vehicle out of the bend. A good pilot now shifts the weight, tilts the mine cart in the curve and manages every tricky part of the track.
