    ****, me too!

    I think they ought to rename it to Windows M.A.D.N.7 since we are obviously largely responsible for its creation :)

    I think the point here is that FreeSpace 3 needs to be made immediately.

    The real question is, what is Microsoft going to do with the FreeCell license?

    They sent me a letter once.
    I told them they owed me $150.00.
    When I had to reformat my PC, after I installed Halo.

    Must have cost $200.00 in legal fees to type it out :lol:


    Hmmmm. I wonder if Epic would send me a letter.

    FreeSpace needs more sequels. They should be on FreeSpace 10 by now!

    Well, I have not received an email from Microsoft. They obviously just shoved my request to the side. Should I follow up with another call?

    Great concept, slightly flawed execution...

    Yes. Because I want to shoot Red Hessians again.

    Don't settle for small, you should pay them a visit and make your position clear to them. Force always helps, btw.

    Yep - pretty much.
    Eve blew everything out of the water way back in 2003 and still has this genre wrapped up tight.
    A new Freelancer would have to be something monumental to take that crown.

    EVE may have plot, but it's not a plot-based game.

    Yes and no. There's no way any game will match EVE in sheer scale. Not an MMO, not a story-based game, nothing.

    But, I don't think they should try to beat EVE in scale, but if they aim it in more of a plot-focused direction, then there's an opening there. EVE may be many things, but plot-based it ain't. FreeLancer was heavily plot-based, but still had that heavy action element, and that's the way a sequel should aim itself.

    The formula worked, there's no reason it can't work again. The framework of the game just has to be better scaled. I don't see why a GTA-style framework wouldn't work, it's similar to the way FreeLancer worked originally, but the scale of the game just has to be tweaked to make it feel more plausible.

    EVE is just fundamentally broken, because your skills are based only on how long you have paid a membership, not how much you play, or how how well you play. just how long you've maintained a subscription.

    It's still the only game that has a real, working world.

    To an extent, but at the same time, you learn exponentially slower the more skills you have. So new starters gain skills at a much quicker rate.

    Doesn't matter because the guy 6 months ahead of you still has maxed out learning skills AND 3 tiers of bb, ECM and hac more than you.

    Mmmmm, I really doubt that. :hmm:

    There was a point in my excitement for space sims that I tried like 5 different space sim games, some of them indie. I couldn't find any that I liked. I didn't try DarkStar One though, but I did read about it and heard it was like FL but FL was still slightly better.
