Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
Okay, I'll admit, I've never played WC, don't really feel inclined to (old games hurt my eyes)
I'll also admit I've never played FreeLancer, but I've read about it and it sounds really cool.

I just signed up and got a ticket. Does everyone get one?

I can guarantee that Freelancer won't hurt your eyes.  It actually looks quite nice for a game that is as old as it is.

I'm tempted to sign up, but given the string of excellent releases this year, I think I might pass.

Well the UI will hurt your eyes if you're on some hardware that has compatibility issues with whatever directdraw they're using, like me.

Sign up. It costs nothing, and you get the ticket. It doesn't oblige you to anything.

I'd say the poor graphics, and fake looking everything would hurt one's eyes too. :P

Don't. WC is super, super dull. Not worth your time.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
If you want to shoot a lot of things with shiny graphics and flashy weapons, so play BF3 (or retail FS2 campaign). Or any other mainstream game, there's an entire gaming industry just for you. Classics are played not for graphics or flashy gameplay, but for deep story, interesting characters and good plot. That's why I consider vanilla FS inferior to WC and XWA. Too much shooting, not enough story. Wing Commander feels like were playing a movie (and WC3 is even called "Origin Interactive Movie" on the box I have) rather than a game.

Wing Commander is definitely worth your time if you like a good story with great immersion, even though your cellphone could probably do graphics better than WCP (the latest game in the series). Also, the quality for the FMVs in WC3 to WCP is excellent (starring Mark Hamill as the main character, BTW).

[21:51] <@Droid803> OH WELLL.

See what you're missing in #WoD and #Fsquest?

[07:57:32] <Caiaphas> inspired by HerraTohtori i built a supermaneuverable plane in ksp
[07:57:43] <Caiaphas> i just killed my pilots with a high-g maneuver
[07:58:19] <Caiaphas> apparently people can't take 20 gees for 5 continuous seconds
[08:00:11] <Caiaphas> the plane however performed admirably, and only crashed because it no longer had any guidance systems

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
I've played XWA, it looked nice enough with the XWAUP stuff. :P
The main issue I have with olllld games is the fact that it sometimes triggers my claustrophobia with the limited window size and all (not to mention it totally messes up my dualscreen setup XD)

WC was ok.

For the most part I found it somewhat boring as 99% of all missions were the same.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
I've got a pretty ambitious idea how to patch it up (not the story, but gameplay/"fidelity" shortcomings). WCS changed less than I thought, and I think that the biggest problem is the gun bank limit. I'm currently waiting for all HUD gauges to support RTT, to test a concept I have for cockpits.

Anyway, I hope the next RSI project would be an "interactive movie", like old Wing Commander games.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
That's shiny.

But, at the risk of playing Captain obvious again, shiny graphics doesn't make a good game.

Re: Robert Space Industries. From the Wing commander + sequels makers
Ok while the graphics look good, i would also like to make the same point MatththeGeek made, Graphics don't make a good game, the gamplay has to be good as well, so lets hope that the gameplay mechanics are up to the same quality of the graphics. Also if this is good let us hope is brings the space sim games back and lets hope it comes with modding tools and mission editors as in a interview on Gamespot Chris Roberts says he likes the trend of companys releasing the tools to the community and the mods.
