Re: Everspace 2 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

This guy has done a good review of the Everspace 2 closed beta currently happening. I like how he constantly compares to Freelancer instead of other games haha. He mentioned planet surface stuff but yeah who knows if its gonna be like Freelancer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXARTskUbC0 [bbvideo]...

Re: Starpoint Gemini 3 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Some cool news I saw today.. Starpoint Gemini 3 will be released soon and has added mod support which is good as the game looks super similar to Freelancer (they even added a mini Sirius sector to the game lol) so if there was ever a good candidate engine for a future Freelancer mod it's this game l...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Well.. time was running out on the steam sale and the general response I'm getting in most places I asked was either silence or 'never heard of it so I don't know if it's good' haha.. However I watched this dudes let's play series below and that sold it for me.. so I’ve hit the button lol! As expect...

Re: Dominus Galaxia (Master of Orion like game)

Well it got funded in the end so I was glad to be wrong lol! Speaking of which I've found yet another love letter to Master of Orion except this one is more MOO2 like! Has anyone here tried Interstellar Space Genesis? If so was it good? Was it stable? Apparently the indie team behind it consists of ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Final Episode 10 rant.. Kinda glad its all over as in these last few weeks it felt like I was just waiting for them to find new ways to disappoint me lol. Now that it's done I don't have to worry about it lol. So.. that last episode.. once again we've got some good things but mostly things that anno...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Probably noticed I haven't posted here since I blew up a bit over Ep5 haha. I have kept watching the show though but was less invested in it to continue posting my episode round ups. I said after ep 5 that they'd really need some good eps to undo the damage that did, so... Here's my thoughts on eps ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Yeah.. episode 5.. wow.. If people here disliked it you don't have to worry about me arguing with you on this one guys. As this episode broke me too, or more precisely it broke my enjoyment of the show. I didn't enjoy that at all. I thought maybe if I sleep on it I'd feel better but nope, today I'm ...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Episode 4 seen (belated).. WE'RE OFF!: Well things have finally taken off! Enjoying the fact we're back in space.. loved the look of the Romulan refugee colony (particularly in the flashback sequences) with the giant 'world tree' background, although in the opening planet shot I wish we'd seen the E...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Episode 3 seen: (spoiler alert) Not thrilled about how they continue to make Picard look slow, weak & frail. You watch him on talk shows and he zips around just fine lol! But I love the fact that in ep 3 it appears writers are trying to address one of those funny never explained issues from old trek...

Re: Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

Apparently CBS has posted the first episode of Picard on YouTube for a limited time. So, if you dont have All Access and want to check it out, you have til Feb 7 to watch it for free. Naturally it's region locked though urgh. Episode 2 of Picard seen. Glad it explains some of the mysteries & fan com...

Star Trek Picard Thoughts (Spoiler Alert)

The first episode has aired.. My thoughts ( SPOILER ALERT ): I loved the opening shot with the camera closing in on the Enterprise D (which had some interesting design modifications) and going through the window into to the room.. the kind of shot you always wanted to see as a kid watching TNG but k...

Re: Screen Size on Newer Computers

Thanks captain obvious. :lol: Main point is if Armada 1's resolution options were fixed in a fan patch why on earth wasn't Armada 2's in it's fan patch? Is it because there's s...

Re: Screen Size on Newer Computers

If I end up playing with black bars at the side then so be it but it would be a shame after re-playing Armada 1 in widescreen to not get to with Armada 2 if it is somehow possible. :) Yeah it just doesn't make any sense. Right now everyone can download a fan patch for Armada 1 that allows you to pl...

Everspace 2 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Well now we've got another one lol! One of the great bonuses of me making a Freelancer FB group a while back is that members alert me (the slightly obsessed fan lol) to all Freelancer & Wing Commander Privateer 'spiritual sequels' on the way haha. Been a good year so far.. first Rebel Galaxy Outlaw,...

Starpoint Gemini 3 (Freelancer & WCPrivateer Like Game)

Posted this in the BOTF forum a while back but since that's a separate forum community I may as well post this here too... Well here I was recently talking about Rebel Galaxy Outlaw here and now looks like we’ve got another game very similar to Freelancer and Wing Commander Privateer on the way, woo...
