There are too many?
Isn't this the only one?

      There's a thread in the off topic gaming forum. http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,56614.0.html

Oh, well, I never check the GenDisc/OT forums.

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
So are we supporting or opposing an FS3 (any FS3; whether by :v: or not)?

I'm opposed to any change because I'm Republican, what about the rest of you guys?

I'll play it if they make it and won't play it if they don't

An FS3 that isn't Made in :v: will be easily and rapidly forgotten by the community unless it has superb features and high mod compatability.

Crash Bandicoot fell in the hands of Konami - I remember the games made by Naughty Dog, only.

Canon crap is one of the things that can ruin an entire universe for me.

Take Star Wars for example (just an example mind you), the movies were pretty good, maybe not the best sci-fi universe, but still. Then, obviously, you get the EU which ruins everything. (Let's leave it at that, no more Star Wars discussion. I only brought it up as an example, nothing more).

If FS3 is something crap, it's still canon. That way we have stuff that is canon that is crap. This is like piling up bile on top of a cake, you can choose to ignore it but it's still utterly disgusting.


An FS3 I'm sure will change everything, for better or for worse. There's no discussion that everything here will be completely different a year or so after FS3 is released.

No if the community realizes that FS3 is crap. In the various discussions there will be comments like "It's canon, ok, but it comes from FS3. This is self-explanatory". Even the FS Wiki would, IMO, make the difference between FS1&2 canon and FS3 canon.

But there are bound to be people who think that FS3 is canon just "because it's an official addition". Some are bound to be people in positions of power.

Let's take a look at Command and Conquer. Original games were great. Then Generals, Tiberium Wars and etc. came. While a lot of people were against them at first, the original CnC community slowly dissapeared, when they got conquered by new fans of the new games.

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
Well, it depends on how heavily F3S-in-the-incorrect-order contradicts the other 2 games...

I mean Terminator 3 would be considered canon as it is an official addition to the series.

BUT, T3 is choc full of contradictions to the earliar films so i consider it canon to an AU timeline where the events of the first two films took place earliar...


SO, depending on how good FS3 is in terms of story and how well it maintains continuity with the others, i would either call it 100% canon or AU-Canon

Still, if an FS3 managed to come out, won't that mean that SCP will become illegal?

There were inconsistencies between FS1 and FS2

And unless Interplay or something call FS2 SCP illegal, then I guess that it won't. Afterall, it's just FS2 that's open source. FS1 isn't. So I guess a FS3 would be independent from the SCP as well.

No, the Source Code is publically available, it can't be "taken back", and Interplay don't own it anyway.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Interplay merely owns the name "Freespace" and the rest of the universe is [V] property?

I'm pretty sure that's not the case, or they'd just call it "DarkSpace: Legion of The Evil Red Subspace Demon".

Re: Interplay website, FS2, Inferno WTF ??
Well this is a turn up, I for one am pretty sure that FS3 (if ever) won't come for years. If it does it won't have the same style, it'll be the "Terminator 3" as mentioned earlier. Some will fawn over it and go all ^_^ <3 <3 <3 "Lawai" the hardcore will remain stalwart, and a division will form. But i'll stay with the SCP loyalists.... all the way. :yes:

Unless FS 3 will have real Newtonian physics, allowing me to orbit around the ship I'm attacking while facing it all the time, will be even easier to mod than the SCP, and will have graphics that Crysis could never dream about.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot- and if it includes every ship, mission and campaign from FS 1 to FS 3 (;-p) in such quality, everyone here will $h!t bricks when seeing them and a good (almost addicting) multiplayer...
and all that without excessive system requirements.

If not, then:
