Not sure if this was reported but:

Since Fallout 3 is mentioned as being developed externally all they would have to do is look for a new publisher

But here's some good news...



I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance by switching to Geico!

FUCK YEAH! I still wish it was called Imperium Galactica but thats really super nit picking. God it still looks awesome. Even the old '02 demo looks superb!

I'm not exactly sure what you mean in your first sentence, seems as if I missed a previous battle?

While IW2 was linear as hell, I actually felt like I was in a universe with a purpose with something to strive for (same goes with Freelancer but the gameplay and story failed horribly). They did ATMOSPHERE right.

While the game has the likes of "Elite" in the making, I could do better off by subscribing to EVE Online. I am hoping X-Online remedies my quams with the game but, I just don't "feel" right in this game. I've only been playing a few hours a day so maybe I havn't hit that magic moment or mission yet. I wouldn't say my money is wasted (but it is kind of questionable) as it's always good to own a good spacesim. Even if it isn't to my liking something might happen down the line where it might become much better.

I'm not here to deter you guys from enjoying the game, by all means please do. My tastes just aren't wet with this one, no matter how close to Elite it comes.

I have no problems waiting...

Oh no, I play both Sims and FPS shooters. I've got a Cougar HOTAS (last christmas) so it's all good for the sim (and mech) games.

Yeah I guess it isn't really my cup of tea, which makes me kind of sad since I thuroughly enjoyed Elite and Frontier (even though they were with a keyboard).

I dunno, I guess I was hoping for something like Freespace: Privateer

Independence War 2 owns this game hardcore. Which makes me REALLY sad cause IW2 is pretty linear

First of all, I just can't get over how bad their "animator" is. All the models and stuff are done well, but jesus fucking christ... It's as if they had someone who isn't even familiar with animation do the animation... I mean I've only taken a single 3D Modeling & Animation class and I've already topped their animation for my final. god..

And where is the fast paced combat? For a game that touts FIGHT as one of the main playstyles it seems as if you're fighting the game to kill something rather than fighting opponents. I'm sorry I just can't get over those to make it fun for me, it ruins the entire atmosphere for me.. oh well.. Hopefully they release some mod tools or get some gameplay patches out there.

One good thing I'm loving: MultiMonitor support (in the patch). MORE GAMES NEED THIS!! Specifically Lock-On: Modern Air Combat.

I'm starting to imagine the way the games would be built for the OS. Instead of traditional 2D games we could actually be looking at layers of 3D... man that would rock!

Freespace 1&2 had the perfect example of a personal and motivating campaign.

Wing Commander did too but to a lesser extent..

In the realm of Flight Sim campaigns, I would say US Navy Fighters probably had come the closest to making you feel like you had an objective.

Freelancer was shit (it could have been so much more, game had great atmosphere but shitty mechanics). This is Elite to the extreme!

I'm with weed on this one.

Seriously.. what are you people thinking? With just a tad touch of investigative reading and not narrow minding yourselves into shitholes of conspiracy theorism, you guys just might figure something out.

This is HOW it is: The game is GOLD, the wording was pretty awful in the post, the NEW company they handed it off to was a JOINT venture not a complete hand-off and said company only re-did pieces of the singleplayer portion. The rest of the work from Ritual is still in there. And like others before me: NO, there are no skateboards.

Valve going bankrupt? After selling 32894728947 million copies of HalfLife? Are you stupid?
