On the official X2 boards I'm hearing the date for US shipping is now Nov 27th... ugh

D'oh!!!!

I was hoping to get it in time for my long Thanksgiving weekend. In my 4.5 days off, I was hoping to put in some 40-50 hours of X2.

Oh well, I guess I'll actually go and visit the family

How nice of the USPS and stores around the country to open up on a holiday just to get X2 out to us.

15. Date Getting Pushed Back Nov 17, 2003, 09:54 kanniballl
 
I just checked ebgames.com. It looks like the game is getting pushed back YET AGAIN!!!

It's gone from November 10, to November 19, and is now November 23!!! At this pace, it may come out after DX:IW.

I wonder if this is a publisher-issue (pressing the CD's), or if they found a major bug and are trying to fix it.

What I think is REALLY cool about X2, is you can write your own AI scripts for your ships' AI computers, and share them online. This is awesome. I used to play a game that was soley based on writing an AI script for little "dots that shoot", and compare them to other people's "dots that shoot", and see who wins.

Think about it, getting a really nice defensive script for ships covering your base. Writing really aggressive attack scripts if you wanna be a pirate or bounty hunter. And being able to tweak ones you find online if you aren't great at making your own.

I think X2 is going to have A LOT to offer.

DX:IW doesn't, and I doubt KOTOR does either, due to its Xbox origins.

No DX9 shaders in X2, and no online... if anyone knows, do Deus Ex 2 and KOTOR have any DX9 shaders?

KOTOR = Whoo! (Already ordered.)

Two Towers Extended = Pants soiling excitement!

Lock-ON = Already ordered.

SWON + X2, + Double Dash = All I need is one good review for each before I plunk down the cash.


Between this and all the cool cd/dvd releases lately, I gonna need another job soon...

Rigs,

Can you comment a little on the mouse / keyboard control system? It is implemented well (like in Freelancer, where it worked, in my opinion, nearly perfectly), or would you recommend a joystick?

Lock-On was the one I forgot, but it seems a lot more stuff is even coming out.

I think I'll stick with X2, KotOR and 2 Towers though

Having worked on the beta for almost 9 months now, I can say that X2 has transformed into a true work of art. When I started helping, X2 was nothing more than an extension of...well, Xtension. But now, now it's a whole 'nother ball game. I think everyone will be pleased with X2, it's got so much to do, you'll only scratch the surface in the first couple hundred hours! I have to commend Bernd and the crew for really out doing themselves. They have worked very hard to bring what every space-sim junkie has waited for...

WHAT? You forgot KOTOR PC and it was just mentioned!

Everyone seems so excited about X2 but I'm not so sure, I haven't really enjoyed a space shooter since Tie Fighter, and I've played a few...

But going back to KOTOR, even though I beat it on Xbox, I'm considering picking it up again.

So much for my rather nice looking credit card balance this month
