Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
http://www.gametrailers.com/player/36397.html

This looks like it has heavy influences from both Homeworld and Freespace.

And it looks good.

Maybe it was just the horrible player, but that looked incredibly boring.

*Looks at the comments for the video*
No wonder space sims have died.

Anyways, I liked what I saw. Sure, the gameplay footage wasn`t amazingly action packed, but I`ll wait for more videos before passing too much judgement.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
Didn't look bad. But somehow I'd rather say "Colony Wars -ish" instead of "FreeSpace-ish". Not commenting on the Homeworld part since I've never played any of them. *realizes just how embarassing that sounded and goes to sit in the corner*

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
I dunno, the last Akella space sim turned out to be crap. This one looks pretty similar.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
I wonder if they have beams...

I could get used to the game. Its HUD is similar to FS2's HUD setup. And it looks like you can customize your ship.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
Hey guys,

never thought I would post back here, but looks like my account is still alive hehe

If there are still some people who were on the [V] forums, I was Alpha Leader for those who remember me.

Anyway I was browsing the topics here because I saw the Dark Horizon trailer and it reminded me of FS. The HUD is quite similar to the FS one, the music also seems to be the same kind as in FS. Maybe it's just me, but I'm pretty sure there is some FS in there. Hopefully, some [V] guys who worked on FS. I did not take a look deeper at the game so I don't know what the story is, but so far, it seems to be good.

...man FS was good...

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
That just screamed "Freelancer" more than FS2/HW/anything else.

It looked good, but I guess I'll wait until more comes out.

Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
There's a really awesome sense of scale going on in that trailer.

Hard to say whether the gameplay holds up, though. The dogfighting in Tarr Chronicles had some issues and the trailer doesn't really indicate whether this has the same problems.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
It's the sequel to Tarr Chronicles, which wasn't great. Primary flaw was the gameplay (story and look were good).
And from the Trailer, it's obvious that the gameplay hasn't changed.

Trust Vidmaster, he plays and played EVERY goddamn space shooter out there (yes, even StarTrek Shattered Universe, which was crap)

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
The game feels slow and plodding in that video. It reminds me of X3: Reunion (ew).

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
*jaw drops and starts dreulling* to play this game against freespace and compare, would be fascinating.

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
I see freespace (B5 mod, to be exact) and homeworld. Looks like a very very interesting combination. Definately getting it

Re: Dark Horizon - The new Freespace?
I saw exactly 0 beam weapons in the trailer. Ergo, the game will suck. :p

It actually looks pretty interesting. Should be worth a decent look.
