Any of you ever play X4 and its expansions? If so, what did you think of it?
I played X BTF when it came out. It was pretty subpar. Played X2 for a couple of hours and then got bored again. Tried again with X3 TC. Still haven't tried X4 other than watching a video or two. They're just not for me, it seems. Though I will say this: Never buy anything from Egosoft day one. Give them a few years after any release to polish it up before taking the plunge. They've gotten into the bad habit of using their consumers as beta testers like a lot of game devs nowadays. At least that's what a friend that swears by the game says.
I liked Independance War 2, Rebel Galaxy & Outlaw, Archimedian Dynasty & Aquanox 1&2, Tachyon, Star & Freelancer, Dark Star One somewhat, Freespace 1 & 2, Evochron Legacy was interesting, HAWX 1&2, some of the Ace Combat games, the Rogue Squadron games. I could go on and on.
Starfleet Command 1 & 2 were great. 3 had a proper storyline and fans of the arcade gameplay like WC might like it better though. There's also Star Trek Invasion and Shattered Universe. Star Wars Starfighter 1 & 2 happened, though I never played them. Galaxy on Fire 2 wasn't bad for a mobile game. Between the Stars shows some promise but we'll see. Eterium was good. So was Everspace 1; haven't played 2 yet. Allegiance was interesting. Starfox 64 was pretty good. Starpoint Gemini 2 was fun at times. The X-wing series of games were pretty good if a little too tedious for my tastes. Star Trek Online can be pretty fun but it's just a generic tab targeting mmo. Crimson Skies was good. XCom Interceptor could be fun if you knew what you were doing. Sol Exodus wasn't bad for what it was. Project Sylpheed could be bloody terrific at times. Strike Suit Zero was pretty good.
Galactic Starfighter was an expansion for The Old Republic but I never really got into it.
Echelon should be mentioned but I didn't really like it. Didn't care for Starlight Inception. Dakka Squadron... exists? I know about the Star Wolves and Space Rangers series of games but haven't played them. If you liked Independance War 1 then Subwar 2050 is a thing.
Star Conflict was okay years ago but I stopped playing when they introduced premium currency in a real way.
Chorus is new.
A lot of those aren't quite like Wing Commander though.
Now go out and get a good Virpil stick with a long extension and have fun! The Alpha R grip with MongoosT-50CM2 base and 200mm extension is pretty sweet.
