What is this Balactica you speak of hmmm? And it's a recently released TC you say? Well, I might just give it a go you know, just to see what it's like.
Mind=Blown. That was awesome. Loved the environment, loved the interface, loved the graphics and the dialogue. I loved how when you press F1 on the menu screen the lines actually point to the right buttons! The high pace dialogue during combat was a really cool and realistic touch which I feel many other
FSO engine based games miss out on (in part due to the innate lack of voice-acting preventing it), and I don't know what other ppl are saying but I'm rockin' that music.
I did find myself just thematically adding bits in my head a couple of times, don't know why, eg.
The sound of a female pilot screaming "[name], No!" or something along those lines when [name] got shot down
A short cutscene of the Theseus jumping away from the first exploding basestar
Nukes going off over the planet, but that happened later anyway.
Oh an correcting the intro cutscene to have presents after the acknowledgements, not right after "Diaspora Development" ie. Diaspora Development, In collaboration with SCP, and HLP, Presents
I always give a "thumbs up; ready to go" when launching like in BF3 (though I've never actually played it)
Typical "Landing": Ah! There's a countdown timer, burn, burn! Oh wait, physics, burn the other way, burn-SLAM! Ow. Right slow down, no speed up some more, bang, end up upside down.
Too short, fighterbays a little low detail, lost briefing voice once but fixed on restart (I am aware that you are aware of that, hence my ensuring that you're aware of my being aware of your awareness of it), crashed once, got lost in the last mission when
I tried to land on the Prometheus but didn't work out where the fighterbay way, of course in hindsight it wouldn't have one but I was just sitting on some random flat surface and it ported away from under me :-(, then there were cylons everywhere. Not a complaint, just a statement. I'll give that mission a replay again soon to get the other ending (the one I was trying for).
The cavalry didn't come to save the day, I was totally expecting someone to arrive and help. But the fact that they didn't hammered home the fact of how screwed everyone was, I didn't expect to be left in cylon space with no way home.
