Just joined recently, been lurking a bit (kinda shy.)
I'm horribly late to the party, I only just started playing Freespace a few months ago, but I love it senseless. I'd been looking for a space flight game to keep me well entertained and this... this is it.
Freespace 2 has given me feelings I don't get much when playing video games. Even the story and how it played out, with the Shivans keeping everyone on their toes and eventually forcing them to flee... leaving their future uncertain. Those Shivans aren't quite the usual antagonists. That's what I like though, I like being faced against an enemy found to be overwhelming.
Each time you'd think you've beaten them back well enough, they come back stronger.
You destroy the Ravana? Surprise, here comes a Sathanas to devastate the GTVA.
Oh you destroyed the Sathanas now? Have about a hundred more. Also, no more Capella!
Yeah I only wish there could've been a Freespace 3.
But at least there's all these cool campaigns and mods around!
That and I'm a modder too so this all still being new to me will keep me for a long while.
It's good to see that the community for this is still alive, I'm hoping it stays that way. Cause this really is a great game series and although there may never be a 3rd Freespace game, at least there's plenty of promising projects even still being worked on.
So I'm glad to be here.
