Starpoint Gemini 2 Launches

Iceberg Interactive announces that Starpoint Gemini 2 has left early access and Little Green Men Games' space sim sequel is now officially launched on Steam for 20% off for the next week, saying this is also available through "various other digital platforms." Here's a release trailer along with the patch notes for the launch version. Here's an overview of the game:
Captain your own space ship and roam the galaxy in 3D in this tactical space simulator with tons of RPG depth! Space has never looked so inviting - but images can betray...

It has been two years since the end of the second Gemini war, and the situation in the war-torn system is further from resolution than ever before. The collection of freedom fighters named Gemini League is now reduced to a small group, with no power or influence, after losing their leaders. The Empire meanwhile, has used the re-opened Starpoint to occupy the once renegade Gemini sector - and beyond.

A multitude of Imperial warship fleets and mammoth mother ships have crushed every trace of opposition. The situation was looking bleak, when they suddenly halted their armada and re-shifted their focus on fortifying Starpoint with staggering numbers. Rumors soon spread that they were afraid of something coming after them through the T-gate, from what was supposed to be the core of the Empire. What are they running from that makes even the mighty Empire tremble?

I picked this up a few weeks ago and started playing it. It is very similar to Freelancer. Not as fast and spazzy as Freelancer was, but similar controls, missions, game feel. I like it.

As for the capturing ships (the best way to make money) you need to hire an officer that increases Trooper strength and an officer that increases teleport capacity. And at level 5 put perk point into Field Command I think its called (you get a perk every 5 levels), this increases Trooper strength as well.

Its a fun game - a sandbox universe. There is a storyline since 'launch' and I've started it, but the voice acting is... meh (you can turn off dialogue in the sound menu though!)

Oh and if an incoming ship has the rank of "IMPOSSIBLE" best..RUN. (You can divert energy to shields/weapons/engines on the fly and full engine is how I run most of the time, at least starting out.)

If the reviews are good, I am so getting this.
I've been intrigued by the game but have been holding out until it was done and the verdict was in.

Looks good, but I was burned badly with their first game, Starpoint Gemini.

Once bitten, twice shy. I'm staying away from this one out of principle!

Having a bitch of a time trying to capture ships. Can't even reliably capture a 12 crew gunship in my starter gunship. Got lucky a couple times but still don't have enough scratch for a better ship, and my rank just keeps going up so things are getting tougher.

Been playing it for two weeks. It is a pretty good game. It does a game save every time you enter a station, which is good because I die a lot. It is a fun game and I have not encountered any serious bugs yet.

Oh, wow, it's really out then, huh? I seen it on all the tor...uh, heh, I mean, a friend *cough* told me it was plastered on the torrent sites and he didn't think it was legit because the beta had just been recently doing the rounds also...

Looked good from the beginning and the first one wasn't that bad, just a little undercooked, so to speak. Will be interesting to see if this one comes closer to the original vision...

I had never even heard of the game until today, but after reading a few reviews, I bought it immediately. *out of 950 user reviews, the average is 9/10*

Someone saying "Privateer was my favorite space game of all time, until I played Starpoint Gemini 2" is what did it for me.

Going to start it up now.

Yes and enjoying it immensely. Very easy to mod, too.

I picket it up for $9 a month ago, but have not had much time with it. Space Game Junkie loves it tho:

He did an interview with one of the devs which convinced me to pick it up, they still have big future plans.
