This really does look the sort of thing to take time on and get right. I'm excited to see it.
Release schedules are for the corporations

Star Trek 25th Anniversary and Judgement Rites had an unlabeled star map ingame; at the start of a mission you were given the name of your destination and had to match the chunky pixellated star on the labelled star map in the manual with your screen.
The enterprise would warp off to the destination you chose and you would find out if you got the copy protection correct by not being shot at by the klingons/romulans etc, but surviving meant you could have another go. Although as part of a mission the 3d combat sub-mini-whatever-game might be unavoidable anyway, it was fun, and possibly the origin of Starfleet/Klingon Academy and Bridge Commander. I'd get it wrong on purpose

I cannot wait for Star Trek Excalibur.

Skyroads PTSD occurred; the handling looks a bit wibbly.

Played this on the sega master system, which had this old-fashioned child's music box sound to it.

So many awesome memories of gaming in the 90s...voodoo rush to voodoo2, seeing glquake and then Unreal run for the first time (jaw dropping, in both cases).

The castle flyby of Unreal's main menu was the very first thing I saw running hardware accelerated, at 800x600 or maybe even 1024x768! To this day, the music sends shivers up my spine.

I didn't see any buddy/rival crap, nor any convoluted and over-articulate menu systems. Show us someone moving quickly from one race to another and show us the full in-game ui, with its lack of giant distracting achievement and secondary goal crap.

I want TOCA3 2013 Edition

"OH! Let's just go back to the old sim games..."
Why nobody has yet mentioned Sid Meier's SimGolf is beyond me!

Put your varied and interesting driving challenges in your game by all means, but some of us just want to race. Some of us just want a track, a car, and a stopwatch. Why not give some different and independent campaigns focusing on a single activity? Why *must* we do boring things in games?

I'll also say that the convoluted, absurdly intricate and terribly-slow-to-navigate menu systems in Codemasters' driving games as well as the buddy and rival crap really irritate me. I feel a(nother) TOCA 3 session is imminent.

Much respect for making a demo available, but the video shows me all I need to see ... ;-)

I think I want to see a video of this ...

At this point the view switches to that disembodied first-person perspective made so ubiquitous by shooting games like the Call of Duty franchise and Epicís own influential Unreal titles.
This sentence makes me sad ;'(

All lists of this sort are entirely wrong, but it's nice to see some folks remembering X-Wing and Wing Commander. Freespace 2 has been the only worthy successor IMHO.

Torchlight was good daft fun and I'm hoping T2 will be the same.
As for mods/options vs stable and cheat free economy - there is a place for both. The mod community always surprises me with innovative and interesting stuff, so I personally prefer this type of game design and choose carefully those I play alongside and against ;-)

Does anyone know a release date? Sept/Oct is rumoured, but nothing official...

It certainly is amazing, and it certainly is not for everyone.
There needs to be more going on in the world - more dungeons, more ruins, perhaps villages of AI players. Wanderlust types like myself should wait a few months.
But for creativity, it is grand. Things will look blocky and weird but I think it is charming ... and of course, you can mod your game to have higher res textures, and glsl witchcraft.

At what point - or with which historical piece of technology - does emulation and backward gaming become too painful?
Excuse me while I just go outside for some firewood, which I shall acquire by gnawing down a tree with my teeth.
