    New 3D Thread

    I agree with SaberAce. She seems small. Especially in profile...the windows seem too large. The forward structure also seems too big. Like the whole forward end is compacted. If you're taking suggestions, I would say shorten the structure by about a 1/3, leaving space between it and the...

    So it's Wing Commander 0?

    That is exactly what I was thinking. The cat symbol, the uniforms (not the flight suit) look VERY similar, if not identical, to the ones in WC3, the patch on the arm is the Confed star. In fact, I had to watch the trailer twice since the first time around I was picking out the WC items.

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Yeah, in WC2 you only got fuel, not missles. The Freespace inflight flight rearm was basically a shuttle that would dock with you when you called it to. It would resupply you with missles and countermeasures. It wouldn't refuel you cause your afterburner would recharge on its own. I'm not sure...

    Q's anger management thread (chock-full of spoilers!)

    Having finally put some serious playing time in, I'd thought jump into this. First off, let me say that I've really enjoyed the game so far. So anything negative I say is just nitpicking. Regarding the dialog, for the most part I don't have any problems with it. Sure, it gets old being...

    New to wing commander 2 questions

    Welcome. Off the top of my head, the prices of the ships are: Orion 75,000 Galaxy 150,000 Centurion 200,000. I'd recommend getting alot more money than the ships are worth, cause if you don't you'll have a great ship but no money to outfit it. You do get some money for trading in the...

    Star Wars IV A New Hope question

    Well, the original idea Lucas had was for the Death Star to win, and what was left of the Rebellion would form a rag-tag fleet and make their way to a new home, but he threw it away at the last minute as no one would want to watch something like that. He kept the introduction, though.

    What moments stand out most?

    Privateer was also my first WC game. The memory that stands out the most was finally completing a mission. I hadn't read the manual, and kept wondering why the navpoint took me to the blue sphere but nowhere else. When I finally figured out what I was doing wrong, I felt like king of the...

    Outlander DVD Available Now (May 29, 2009)

    Rented it from Blockbuster today and just finished watching it. It was pretty good. No Lord of the Rings, but not bad. Better than I thought it would be. It was a bit slow in parts, but a good watch overall.

    The Star Wars Legacy

    Only the fact that everytime the order is "wiped out" in reality about half of the jedi actually survive. I swear, it seems like just about everytime I open up something post-ROTJ it introduces ANOTHER jedi who escaped from Vader. And about half of them end up turning to the dark side. This...

    Most anticipated video game of the fall?

    I got it the day it came out, and I love it. There are times where the camera can be a pain in the ass, but they aren't that often, and it's an easy fix, just move a little and your view should be good again. My biggest complaint would be the object targeting. You can't always lock onto the...
