Yeah, but in the info they specifically mention "lasers" not "particle beams" or "beam cannons" That's just lazy imo. Obviously realistic lasers would be terrible and boring, which is why I think calling them lasers is silly. They are particle beams. Lasers are not particle beams since Light is not a particle

Back 20 years ago nobody understood what lasers are, but by now if you call something a Laser it better not be a visible beam in space that we can see.

I guess my distaste for lasers only grew because Mass Effect doesn't have any. And if a EA made Sci-Fi world with lots of shooting and explosions can get around without lasers, then so can Chris "pushing the envelop" Roberts. ;p

I guess I am nitpicking Anyway... the flaks were the greatest thing about Freespace 2... flying with a bomber wing at a decently armed destoyer felt like you you were really entering a battlefield. And there is that Freespace 2 had gorgeous explosion effects for flak cannons, and in the code remake even more so. And BSG really imprinted the need for flaks on me. Flaks (as a form of delayed-fuse-flechette) simply make a lot of sense in space "point" defense. ^^
