For the love of the game, let the franchise die. You have to give credit that when a MAJORITY of the gaming community, let alone 98% of die-hard Freespace fan base does NOT approve of you making the game. I understand you don't care if we approve or not, but damn.
I know you have the *possibility* of actually making a good game, but there's no guarantee, and, given your previous record, far from it. With chances of the Freespace franchise being reborn and as a *possible* result Freespace 4+ on the horizon, why would anyone want to place faith in you carrying that out?
Here's the deal Derek. I'd buy the game if you did a good job. Problem is, you won't. You never have, and never will. Call me immature for saying that, but I'm just acknowledging your shitty track record.
You know the gaming community doesn't want you fucking with this game, so why do you keep asking?
