There is always that chance that Stompy Bot is so new that they have no idea how things work and (wrongly so) figured that if they owned the trademark, they could make the game.

Watch it be Derek Smart again.

Somehow the image of Derek Smart trying to buy the Freespace trademark from a dumpster using rats as currency comes to mind.
Blame Blue Planet for my Freespace2 addiction.

Actually, the only thing that comes into my mind is YMCA spelled out with FreeSpace ships.

Probably they were very curious about the JAD mods and are now trying to make a pro version of them.

I blame Axem.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

SpardaSon21: it seems like you exist in a permanent state of half-joking misanthropy

Atleast he wouldn't have a trademark conflict with BOSE's FreeSpace 3, as he'd probably call it Freespace 3000. :P

Your implications, good sir, are bold indeed.
I doubt Chris Roberts would ever work on a Freespace title. As I understand, the relationship between Wing Commander and Freespace is like the relationship between Star Wars and Star Trek.

Yo just got it from a games-news report about a new freespace, so they got the **** wrong

 
Re: Freespace trademark, to be bought by "Stompy Bot Productions inc." game company?
Also, I just noticed -
:welcome:
You're new. Have fun here. :)

Really? Perhaps...or perhaps they may have reason for calling it Freespace? ;)

It also seems silly to buy the rights to Freespace and then make a game unrelated to it. That would just cause confusion among gaming fans. You would just call your game a different name otherwise.

*COUGH*X-COMFPS*COUGH*
 :p

Ahem, yes I definitely hope it will be a space sim... maybe even with some of the ex-staff from :v:!

So all this remains in the arcane undecipherable writings of the law? No news?

More like between Star Wars and the original Battlestar Galactica...

Yeah, I don't think Trek and Wars have any legit bad blood, only some silly general nerd-sniping.  Hell, I saw Lucas himself on a TV special about Gene Roddenberry, saying how much he'd made possible because of TOS.

Exactly, the whole Star Trek/Wars debacle is nothing more than galactic size forced fan wanking on the trek of a franchise's life.

Thank you. Thank you for saying that.

That is why I no longer participate in the Star Trek or Star Wars fandom. No-one wants to have fun or have silly ideas. They just want to argue and throw insults at each other most of the time, and go "MY STAR**** HAS MORE PIGGATONS THAN YOUR SPACE**** DOES!!!!1111

I hated it then, and I still hate it now. It's toxic to trying to simply have fun. You can't even mention liking both, because in most places someone will throw a hissy fit, because god forbid someone liking the "enemy".  :nono:

Tell that to some of the Wing Commander community.  Apparently there's a vocal minority that feels like FS2 killed the genre. :p
