X3: Terran Conflict Rolling Demo

A rolling demo for X3: Terran Conflict is now available, offering a look at the latest installment in EGOSOFT's space combat series. This should not be confused with a playable demo, as a rolling demo is non-interactive, offering the chance to see what the game looks like using the actual game engine. As such this rolling demo can also benchmark your system to show how it can handle running the game. The 422 MB download is available on AtomicGamer, ComputerGames.ro, FanGaming, FileFront, Gamer's Hell, and Strategy Informer. X3: Terran Conflict was released a couple of weeks ago, and can be purchased through Steam.

I've always been just a hair away from fully getting into the X games. I buy them all (though not TC yet), and I do put in a good deal of time, but after a certain point frustration begins to set in.

It wouldn't take much to push me over the edge, and I'm hoping TC does just that. It's just the interface, really, that frustrates me because of all of the micro-managing you have to do. This is all part of the game of course, but when it gets to the point where if I take a break to smoke a cigarette or get something to drink and when I come back I'm in a menu that's nested several times over and I've lost my train of thought, things begin to get a little frustrating. It's pretty powerful once you get comfortable with it, sort of like using a command line or something like vi, but it would be a lot more enjoyable for me if it were more user friendly.

When it comes to playing though, you really don't need to get too involved with the more complicated management aspect of the game. It is very full featured and polished on many levels so just flying around and fighting or exploring the universe without having to lead large fleets around and manage factory output can be very enjoyable and there are plenty of things to do. Besides, there are so few space sims/shooters of any type that X is definitely worth playing if you enjoy these things.
