No problem
Here are all the training videos if you did not want to do the tutorials in game

Wouldn't mind seeing some tutorials on how to do missions.

For instance, got a mission that requests 3 toxic containers...

So, my first noob question... where? 400 Billion Systems... what are some pointers to understand how to approach it.

Very much liking the game... MUCH to learn

Is there any way to enable the mouse in the cocpit menus? I was struggling to bind keys from my joystick, the whole binding system is a horrible mess.

My first mission will be "Find your pre-order Eagle". Apparently its an agile and very lightly armoured fighter, thats music to my ears. So its just like a tie fighter, basically a flying space lazer! PEW PEW!

By default, you select keys 1-4 to open function windows, then use WASD to move around and use 'Q' to cycle through Tabs, use 'Space Bar' to select menu items.

Here's also a good video for your first 40 minutes or so of how to get started if you weren't in the beta (like me). https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=76729

Playing now!!! WoOt! Haven't played a Space Sim in a LONG time, so far just doing basic stuff in the game, Launch, Land, accept some missions, etc, going to take some getting used to.

Went full open world, just diving right in!!! Loved open world PvP in UO, like that the world can be dangerous

If we ever create a 'Blues' Wings (Guild/Corp) I'd love to join in.

If you are in game, my handle is CMDR Tooch, drop me a friend invite.

Game is a blast so far, the Combat Training Tutorial was very helpful.

Someone post screenshots. What's the highest resoluton we can get?

There are screenshots right on the site - http://www.gog.com/game/star_wars_xwing_special_edition

Unfortunately doesn't specify supported resolutions, probably pretty small I would think.

Looks interesting, I've been waiting for a space exploration game like 'Starflight' (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starflight) with modernized graphics, this might fit the bill.

I probably won't play it for a long while, but definitely will keep it on my radar, especially with MODS that will enhance it over time.

There's no Clash of Clans on WP

Yeah, that was my first thought, an answer to Clash of Clans for the Win8 platform. Of course they are leveraging the AOE name, but at least they specifically called it "Castle Siege".

A bunch of people had no issue with Blizz leveraging the Diablo name to herd a bunch of nerds to a Real Money Auction house (yes, it's gone now, but was the original direction) so it's done by other "game loving" companies as well.

If you hate on MS for this, other gaming studios like Blizz need to be thrown down the hole as well.

Jeez... the Diablo 3 threads from long ago should have been nothing but * Removed * with all the posters ragging on each other... but they all stayed... new policy? Not condoning insults, but this seems new.

The combat is quite tough. Which is good. I enjoy developing new ways to win close battles, or even battles where I am outmatched. There is a lot of oldschool challenge with Divinity

Yes it is! Challenge keeps one coming back to learn better tactics. When you Load a game, and they show the game tips, I always laugh when I see the 'Save your game often to keep your blood pressure low' (or something close to that) as you do get jacked up from time to time. I mostly do OK, but from time to time Murphy's Law kicks in and everything goes wrong... that timely miss... slipping on ice...

Won't this be horribly annoying? Sometimes I really, really, really want to pick a certain choice like forgiving someone instead of executing them on the spot. If this AI will automatically pick the other option and I'm left with a rock-paper-scissor game against my own companion...

I can see it being annoying, but yet very realistic and perhaps even fun. Do you really want that Rogue that always goes against your play style but yet helps you quickly unlock doors and chests? Decisions, decisions...

Yeah, created a Knight (male) and Cleric (female), been a great combo so far. I've picked up a couple more allies around the town, ready to start heading out.

Great game so far

I think this game is amazing to capture the young ones like this. I much rather see my kids play something like this than CoD

Strongly agree, my 7 y/o plays Minecraft and also physical Legos, both are great for creativity and imagination.

They should have marketed it and sold it straight up as an ARPG and ditched the subscriptions, the game would still be running today had they done that.

I remember being an active participant on the HG:L forums and BEGGING them to drop the subscription model and go with a Cash Shop (Vanity Items, not P2W) and Expansion (i.e. Stonehenge) model to make $$$ as the subscription model was dividing their online user base practically in 1/2 and I would imagine turned a LOT of away from even buying the product. They were saying they were open to such things but maybe it was already too late... businesses need to make money of course, but it's to bad when greed kills potential.

HG:L is still kicking around somewhere, but I think it's in the APAC region.

Borderlands (1 & 2) is basically an FPS ARPG style game. And damn fun. One of my all time favs.

Your 100% right jdreyer, Borderlands 1/2 are awesome games and are FPS-ARPG's, but HG:L had that "Diablo" feel to it (Spooky/Demonic), I'd like to see someone, correctly, try that again.

I'd love to see a team with these guys lineage (Diablo/ARPG) do a FPS-ARPG like HG:L.

Bill "Sushi" Roper showed that you can mix the typically isometric ARPG elements into a FPS/3rd Person view and still have an ARPG feel to it. Of course he messed up because he was more interested in Adverts and MMO style subscriptions for HG:L instead of just concentrating on making a good solid game, but HG:L could be fun.

If I ever won the lottery, I'd make a go at making an improved HG:L style game.

News Comments > Diablo III Reaper of Souls Launch Party

Combat is super fun but I just find myself bored with the games systems after some paragon farming

Yes, I'd love to see a company (like Crate/Grim Dawn, Relic/TL) take what Blizz did with D3's combat and over-the-top ragdoll physics and apply it to an ARPG that actually has you build a character that you care about because you actually put some thought into the build.

While I do have fun sending baddies 30' into the air with D3, I don't feel any attachment to my character(s) as pretty much everything is automated and there is no accountability behind building a character, no sense of ownership.

D3 is fun, but after about an hour or so of playing I find myself exiting to play something else out of boredom, even with coop. Fun but very shallow, which can be good at times for short bursts extreme demon killing.

When a majority of people here get excited about a game I get excited. I've been ignoring D3 until recently with the new patch and expansion, starting to think I should take a look.

It's certainly worth $20.

News Comments > Blizzard Investigating Diablo III HC Character Losses
25. Re: Blizzard Investigating Diablo III HC Character Losses Mar 19, 2014, 14:12 Undocumented Alien
 
Those games were also designed from the ground up to be played solo, so enjoying playing them in that fashion should not be a surprise

No, they are designed exactly like all 3 Diablo games, ARPG's with a Single Player story line that can be completed by a single player with optional coop. Torchlight 1/2, TQ, and Grim Dawn chose to not have online DRM, that's the only difference.

Playing D3 solo is really selling the experience short IMO... there is much to be gained in the "phat lewts" department (through kill speed and efficiency) by playing with a full group of players.

PoE is designed in basically the same fashion, playing it solo is almost making the experience more difficult for yourself for no reason

Saying that playing a game in a certain way is selling it short is a complete opinion and not a reason for an online DRM scheme. PoE can easily be beaten in SP, doesn't make it harder by playing it that way, not sure where this comes from.

Yes, playing coop, whether on a LAN or internet IS fun, no doubt about it, it's a great option to a single player game.
