Here's another. I think this is the captains room on the Yamoto. Big seat speakers ;o).
"Clinical and ruthless in combat, prospective employers should nevertheless be warned of his propensity for quoting obscure Asiatic mystical texts."Then the in-game WINGMAN image, bottom right. Did I ever help YOU? ;O)
Not sure, but some points were probably true, I don't know. I don't think we could text then, I didn't have a phone and never quoted obscure Asiatic mystical texts.... Maybe the Clinical and ruthless in combat was from paint balling?"Clinical and ruthless in combat, prospective employers should nevertheless be warned of his propensity for quoting obscure Asiatic mystical texts."
Were any of these write-ups in-jokes based on the team member or were they assigned randomly?
And Paul Chapman's:Of all the families on Janus IV, the Barsteadly clan is indubitably the oldest, snobbiest and most inbred. Relics in their family museum date back many thousands of years, and it seems that Eryl, youngest son of the present Duke Barsteadly, developed an obsession with some stories related in a piece of crude, antique literature, describing the antics of the pilots of the first, primitive aircraft. Eryl's conversation is now liberally peppered with meaningless phrases culled from this source. As a wingman, he is competent, with his fighting ability lent extra verve by his insistence on using ancient, unwieldy yet surprisingly effective combat manoeuvres.
A promising career in unpopular music met an untimely demise when Heggardly wiped out the rest of his group, Apoplexy, with one bass solo too many due to "musical differences." Sine the, he has been on the run from his record company, briefly laying low in the guise of a biology master at the Van Vista Finishing School for Young Ladies in the Hom system. Although a highly skilled combater, Heggardly nevertheless persists in letting clients down. Many years of living in the fast lane have taken their toll on his short and long term memory – he has even been known on occasion to forget whose side he is on in the middle of a dogfight! Very much an unfathomable force, you just never know what he'll do.
What's the matter didn't know to cut the Krasnya (?) by destroying that jump gate...well, me neither actually made a lucky shot and before I knew it the carrier was being cut in half. I was always to focused on the next fighter, I didn't even realize the carrier coming through. Was in a Patriot I think and was shooting at some one else, when I shot the gate and it shut with the carrier halfway through. I had to play the game again to realize you didn't get the medal unless the carrier is destroyed. it does make you wander...what if some one's action station was located in that exact part of the ship? How messy would that have been? Or if somebody maybe only had a limb that didn't make it through...man to bad they were communists and had state run health care, those people on board who were forever maimed or separated from parts of their bodies' they will never see again. I am sure if that happened to an Alliance carrier, they would have fared better because of better health options, probably with a good dental plan, and maybe even a fantastic life insurance policy that tripled in the event that you body was maimed or separated while fighting a war over our solar system, against a communist, east asian, and arab coalition, during the event that your carrier uses a jump gate, but is cut in half when, before said coalition attacked and destroyed the jump gate right at the moment half your body was left behind and the other half had already made it through.That one definitely made it in. Got my 3 Yamato medals rather quickly compared to the Reliant's triple set.
Thank you!Hello Mr.Cottam! I've been playing your games for over 10 years! I grew up with your games. Great to get a chance to talk to you. Glad to see you're still around.
Actually if you read above I said I got all six. Captain Foster gave three medals and Captain Mukai gave three medals. I was refering to how quickly in succession you get them on the Yamato vs Reliant.What's the matter didn't know to cut the Krasnya (?) by destroying that jump gate...well, me neither actually made a lucky shot and before I knew it the carrier was being cut in half.
I still play all of them. If you need a wingman in Starlancer feel free to join my co-op IP games. MSN Gaming Zone be damned. You can find me and other CIC members on irc.wcnews.com on the #wingnuts channel.Thank you!
I just played a small part in creating this work for Chris and Erin Roberts, but it was an amazing opportunity. I'm amazed that so many people still play. I think I should get myself a copy of the game and get back into it or even make my own.
Contest time!!Thinking of give-aways, I also have one of the very first delivered Darkening game boxes, it's unused/opened and signed by all the team members in gold pen (I have to find that). Last time I came across it I was leaving Vancouver for Brisbane.
I believe that's one we give to all the old Origin vets that register on the boards here... I think we have to apply it manually. I can look into it though not sure if I can do it myself.I was looking at the trophy chart, you know 50 points for this or that.
You get 60,000 points, a "Origin Systems Medal" for creating worlds. Do I have to create another Origin world or is this previously created worlds? (Like Privateer II the Darkening).
I was living in hope that you would say "Build another Origin game".I believe that's one we give to all the old Origin vets that register on the boards here... I think we have to apply it manually. I can look into it though not sure if I can do it myself.
