Battlestar Galactica Online Open Beta

Open beta testing of Battlestar Galactica Online is now underway, offering player access to BigPoint's free-to-play MMORPG based on the TV series reboot. The browser-based game requires the Unity Web Player to play, and here's word on what to expect: "Which side will you choose - Human or Cylon? The choice is yours with Battlestar Galactica Online: the free-to-play, browser-based MMO by BigPoint. Immerse yourself within the exciting universe of the hit re-imagined series from Syfy. Interact with your favorite key characters, complete challenging missions from your commanding officers, and fly a Colonial Viper or Cylon Raider - or command ships never seen before now. But first, you must decide: will you stand with humanity, or against it?"

17. "Connection refused", getting logged out, etc. Feb 9, 2011, 21:10 Ant
 
Is it me or am I having all kinds of problems? I just installed Unity Web player. I get disconnected from US servers. I can get farther on European servers. However I get "connection refused" or "decompress" error. I am using an updated Windows XP Pro. SP3's IE6.

Looks pretty enough for a browser game. Nasty controls. Blue screened my PC after 5 minutes.
If this BSOD you, then that's a PEBKAC thing...

Not a space game in the vein of Wing Commander. Closer to Eve. Quit after 10 minutes. Zzzzzzz.

Closer to Eve?! Oh come on. It's closer to WingCo and you know it. You're mistaking gameplay mechanics for subjective quality. I'l agree BSGO is average at best, and whether you think Eve is or not, they are galaxies apart in how they're played.

Thank you for your OPINION. Note: Mine differs from yours. It's not about the quality, but about the fact that you click to auto-attack vs the more interactive flight sim model.

Fucking fanbois get all up in arms when they think someone dissed their game.

At least we can now see what The Old Republic's space combat will be like.

Sure can, except not here in BGO. BGO's controls aren't on rails.

Matter of fact, for a browser game, it's surprisingly well running.

I wonder if it'll be overrated and overhyped, just like the series?

The boardgame, if you ever get a chance to play it, is awesome. It wasn't the first to use a hidden traitor mechanic, but it evokes a wonderful feeling of suspicion and tension.

I have heard great things about the boardgame, and I am interested.

No, it won't. The series was too good.

Consoles? I owned two: a Pong clone and an Atari 2600. And that's it.

But first, you must decide: which soulful acoustic indie song will you have playing behind your montage of slow-motion dramatic close-up shots?
 
Go forth, and kill!
