Three men died for that goddamn Ice Cream, you shrew!
it's like an SUV, burglar and gun commercial all rolled into one!
In the future, to aid pilots in their war tasks, amphetamines have been replaced by Xanax, for those long, slow, leisurely, battles.
"Our antiproton warhead can reach a peak velocity of 16mph on its way to the target."
"Our slower than light engine can look badass while barely moving at all."
"Our ship hates Mondays."
Pretty much the game summarized.
I'm getting the biggest vibe that this is going to turn into one massive dragged out kickstarter vaporware project. The list of features they want to cram in seems crazy unrealistic for a crowdsourced game.
The God of Biscuits
This is either going to be the greatest game in the last decade, or the biggest letdown since Spore.
2 was still decent.
Every one after that....
Yeah, but the Wing Commander movie was awesome, wasn't it? In the theater, you also got to see the Phantom Menace trailer, which made it DOUBLY awesome!
The gameplay footage from what I can see thus far, and from Chris Robert's own posts, he took a "legit" physics model and then proceeded to hamstring it so that there's a more or less 1 to 1 forward to lateral inertia ratio. No justification except that "it looks cooler" which I completely object to.
If you were an avid fan of independence war, you will feel my disappointment. As he basically admits to going to all this effort to create an "accurate" physics model only to automagically alter it so the game plays like xwing vs tie fighter or freespace.
HOW DARE HE DO SOMETHING AND THEN CHANGE IT!
Wouldn't want playing the game to be fun or anything.
More like, he created something complex and then intentionally mitigated it's complexity, he only seemed to do it to claim somehow his physics model is somehow more complex when the end result isn't.
I suppose getting rid of lateral inertia is more fun if you're an idiot that has no spatial reasoning.
Oh, shit. You just got served, Callamon and Hooker.
Did anyone ever rave about how awesome Mantis was?
