    Tycho from penny arcade has some thoughts on Freelancer. He says it's like Diablo in space. Anyone agrees?

    All multiplayer games are a lot like each other in many ways.

    Now, now, I happen to like him a lot, though I've never met the guy. He's really smart and very talented. I think we could at least give him the benefit of the doubt on the elbow/asshole issue.

    64 IIRC (dedicated server).
    In theory more would be possible, but the ammount of traffic is too high.

    128 is the theoretical limit.. and if you have a good T3 like we're planning to use, that should be no problem. :D

    Yay!

    I finished Freelancer!

    too easy.

    If WC4 in nightmare is 10 in the *hard scale*, FL is a pitiful 5

    I would rate it even easier than that. You really can't lose. It automatically saves before any situation where you might die.. anything that you're trying to defend is indestructable.. And interface things like tractoring in pods and such is much much easier. You also have the (Privateer style-game inherent) ability to go out and super size your ship between story missions. In Privateer, it really seemed like you had to work to seek out a good ship and the story. You got hints about where you had to go, and that's it. In FL, it practically pushes you in the direction of the story. Almost too quickly.

    Yeah, i remember when i did the *Save the transports* and *Save the Willard Station* missions, thought that those dozens of Valkyries would destroy the transports and the base after 30 mins. of firefight....not even a scratch.
    And the last mission...ppfft...it is cools, it looks pretty awesome but is fucking easy.
    I had harder engagements against the Outcast in New York->Texas JG or in Texas system.
