A new trailer shows off gameplay from Battlestar Galactica Online, the upcoming browser-based MMORPG based on the sci-fi television revival. Word is: "Featuring never-before-seen in-game footage of Battlestar Galactica, Cylon Basestars, Raiders, Vipers, and fleet formations, the gameplay trailer highlights space combat." The embedded version follows.
Anyone know what the actual space combat is like? Is it X-Wing style, or more clicky-clicky Eve style? Looks pretty clicky to me, but that's just an impression. It would be nice if their site would give you some information without requiring registration. I dunno, might be worth checking out. For a browser game, the graphics look reasonable enough. Maybe something to play on the laptop when I'm killing time away from home.
Seriously god dammit, why can't we get any good space sims? (Yes, I'm familiar with what's available, but it's nothing like the sort of attention my favorite genre used to get). With all the graphics power we have today, they could make one that was damn near perfect... what we all dreamed computer games would be like in the future when we were kids.
