This will be a totally new style of game for me, so I'm really curious about the learning curve.

Ah, yes, learning curve....well, picture, if you will, Tiger Woods with a 9-iron. See how after he hits the ball, it curves back down to the ground 150 yards out? There you go. Enjoy! *walks away*
=-Rigs-=

Goodluck Which me luck.

Salute I think you'll enjoy it, just give it a chance and don't go in negative and you shouldn't have a problem. And if you have questions, just ask, one of us will probably know the answer...

Cool! Much appreciated. The exploring and learning will all part of the fun I'm sure.

Snuggle Truck.

It's a bit of an ongoing joke. Prez once said that despite most of us claiming (jokingly) that he owned every game on Steam, he did not own Snuggle Truck, so we should all shut up.

So I then gifted him Snuggle Truck, so we could keep saying that. Then last Christmas, I gave Snuggle Truck to a dozen or so Blues members, in an attempt to make it THE one game that all Blues members have.

Well, for Gamefly I've tried both the 20% off and 25% off coupon I have access to.
Neither work.
"Sorry, coupon code could not be applied to any of the items in your cart."
That's the issue.
Been over 24hrs for a support request, and so far all I've received are two automated "we'll get to you within 24 hours, due to higher than expected number of support request" emails.
Sorry dude, not sure what the problem is.
Here is the reply I got from them yesterday:

Hi there

I was trying to purchase XCOM Enemy Within using the GFDNOV20 code, but nothing happens when I apply the code on the checkout screen. The game is on the list of eligible titles.
Can you please look into it?
A friend of mine was trying to purchase X-Rebirth with this code, the game also on the list of eligible titles but he had same results.
I think there might be some problems with the code.

Thank you

I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience when attempting to apply a promotional code. This issue should now be resolved at this time. Please feel free to attempt your purchase at your convenience with the promotional code attached.

Feel free to contact me with any more questions you might have. I am happy to help!

Why would one not just get a flight stick anyway?

I mean I still use my MS Precision 2. It's more than a decade old and still going strong.

They had joystick support in X2 and it was pretty broken. Lots of complaints about stuff not working, patches breaking things, etc. So if I'm not mistaken, they took joystick support out of X3. I honestly have no idea if it's back in or not (or never left.)

Honestly, the game plays fine with m/kb, it's accurate, fast and smooth. I have no idea what some people are smoking. And I think it'd play fine with a controller as well.
They've had one of the dev videos showing off the game played with the xbox controller, so I am pretty sure it will have joystick controls, however looking at the gameplay I am not sure I'd like to use joystick anyways, kb+m seems fine to me.

Really? Ugh, I hope they don't wait that long, I have to go out that night.

Game unlocks 15th 13:00 GMT +1 according to dev on forums. Steam counter is irrelevant, devs can trigger unlock whenever they want.

But I am not sure this applies to all the game versions and regions.

It does i dug this link out the other day, its a global release on steam link

They didn't take joystick support out - that's how I played all of the X games. Never had a problem using the joystick either, even with X2. Not sure if I just got lucky or not, but I'd never try playing it with kb/m.

Yeah but if strafing is a control method, I cant see how that would work with a joystick well...or actually at all?? Wouldnt this lead to combat that would basically be two spacecraft circle-strafing and facing each other ALL the time and holding down the fire button. Dunno sounds kind of fucked up and stupid in an open space game, but what the hell do I know...

Not pre-ordering, resisting the urge. Waiting for some comments on here at least first.

Tomorrow you will have your reviews

that said, there are joysticks that have rotation functions aside from the normal directional axis.... though maybe you want to bind strafe to pedals? That'd be kinda neat actually. Though you'd still have to manage thrust.

Not sure what the problem with keyboard and mouse is.
I am extremely picky about whether the controls in a game are good or not and I've always played all of the X games with keyboard and mouse and found them to be extremely good and precise.
