    BREAKING NEWS: Praise GOG (June 2, 2011)

    Was watching the live stream of the announcement. Near had a fit when I saw Privateer first on the list. :D Can't wait to see if the rest of the catalog is released to GOG as well! *fingers crossed* Hopefully, the sales figures for these releases end up with some high numbers. I'm hoping...

    Ah, scratch that then. Seems to be an instance of the website not liking Firefox but loving Chrome. :p

    Ultima! New Annoucement!

    Looks like it's down again. Link doesn't seem to work and I can't find any instance of it through searching. Blergh... :(

    Starship Simulation Games

    Performing a little necro here, but as I have a new game to add to the list, I think it's worth reviving. As was detailed in my original post, I was searching for a game which simulated a star ship bridge environment where control of sub-systems was delegated to multiple crew members...

    Starship troopers 3!!!

    Well... I just saw the movie. In my opinion, its only a little bit better than the second one.

    Starship Simulation Games

    The game isn't really as bad as you think in those terms. I've actually run a character for about 2 days so far with only needing to meet Feeding and Water Needs, which are very easy as long as you have a vending machine and water fountin/sink nearby. If you like, I might be able to bring...

    Starship Simulation Games

    I actually have a new one to post. In the MMO category. StarQuest http://www.castlethornsoftware.com/sq.html The game is actually pretty cool. Been playing for two days now. The graphics aren't flashy or anything. One of the players said it was actually developed off of one of the...

    Starship Simulation Games

    Freelancer was a pretty fun game, even if at times it feels a bit shallow. Not sure if it really fits into a "large starship" game though (unless of course you are using mods :p but even then, its generally a point/click game without much strategy or tactics involved)

    Starship Simulation Games

    Back when I was playing ST: Bridge Commander, I never really got into the plot too much. Mostly I played some Multiplayer battles and modded the skirmish mode. A lot of the mods out there add a lot more depth to the game, including a form of Free-Roam. The Battlecruiser series (I own...

    Starship Simulation Games

    Well.. after nearly 6 years of trying to find the LAN game I mentioned in that old post of mine, I finally found it. I submit this for your scrutiny! http://community.ise.canberra.edu.au/AmGame/bcrew/default.html The concept is sound enough in my head, though I haven't had a chance to try...

    Spore

    Well that all depends on one persons perspective and preferences. If you like the idea of taking your creature from the microbial level to an interstellar community, then from the looks of things, Spore will be for you. If not, thats just your style of play. I've had a couple friends who...

    Spore

    Cool creature. I'm pretty impressed so far with the creator. I can't wait to see the actual game in action. This is one I put together. Wasn't trying for a Wing Commander related one but its pretty much my best creation so far. :D...

    WC4 Mod For Homeworld 2 In The Works (June 5, 2006)

    Thats looking great. It looks like you removed the interior glow effect for the landing strip as well. Can't wait to give it a test run. :D Shabby? :eek: I always saw the models/textures you put out to be incredible! Especially for how fast you seem to churn them out. :) Keep up the great...
