Re: Sol: Exodus - Has anyone seen this!?
Just realised something, if you say the homepage name for Sol: Eclipse a bit quickly in a nice broad Yorkshire accent it sounds a bit ripe!

By 'eck, lad.

There's no way that was unintentional.

Unfortunately I can't guess as to how that would sound.

.... and the conclusion is that the bad pun of the site's name is waaaay more interesting than the game. OK.

More like the talent and premise is ok... the trailer looks completely terrible... and the name needs some thought.

Perhaps we should just repurpose this topic to focus on unfortunate web addresses until more details emerge.

I enjoy the way the trailer is done (lonely probe rushing home to find noone there), the story sounds contrived/cliche though.

New combat gameplay trailer.
http://kotaku.com/5834338/sol-exodus-spectacular-space-combat-in-action?tag=sol|-exodus

I can definitely see a influence from Tachyon in the base designs, and around the middle of the vid he blows a hole in
a structure and the inside is interesting....   but otherwise I'm still no where near impressed. The combat style seems like
a freelancer / fso hybrid maybe.

Re: Sol: Exodus - Has anyone seen this!?
Thanks for the update, JGZinv.

I really hope they're going to do a lot more work on this, some nice pp effects but nothing really exiting in the graphics department - they are an indy outfit though. Plus I is well miffed not to see a cockpit, someone needs to do one where an arm pops out and twists dials and presses buttons - and periodically has a sneaky nad-scratch. I bet it gets pretty swampy down there after hours in a cockpit.

I do, however, quite like the lift from the new BSG of the machine guns over pew-pew cannons - it fits nicely with the solar setting, a little bit more mundane and familiar.

Eyes peeled...

I can't remember where I've heard the gatling cannon before, because I know I've heard it somewhere else.
I almost thought the impact sound was the shield impact from Independence War, then I noticed it was slightly different.

Is it from Freelancer? I can't quite place it but it was familiar

Ok, I'll stick with my first impression in this case.

A rotund NO for me.

It's nice to know that there are no aliens involved, but I'm not sold by the story.

Don't you think everything is from Independence War, though? :P
