X² U.K. Gold

The Threat is coming across the pond, as word is the U.K. version of X²: the Threat is now gold (thanks Frans). Here's word: "DEEP SILVER is pleased to announce that X²: THE THREAT, by German development team EGOSOFT has gone GOLD in anticipation for its 6th February 2004 UK release date. Sequel to the classic space trading / combat PCCD game X BEYOND THE FRONTIER, X² has been in development for over two years."

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.
