Regarding the extensions in South American titles of WCM, it's a very common plague, at least in Brazil. They take a perfectly good title, don't translate it and add something. For instance, Oliver Stone's JFK became "JFK, the question which won't shut up." ! In an approximate translation, it's really annoying.While we're on the topic of the movie in South America, Mario Muñoz sent in some differences between the movie in the US and the movie in Columbia.
I saw the WC movie here in Colombia and I had the oportunity to see it in the US after the release date of March 12. The differences that I found were: The movie was really bright, some of the fx were ruined by that fact, for example, the asteroinds looked really unreal and plastic. A good fact is that the sound track was louder though.
They all did it for Freespace 2 and Starlancer, and Avault already did it for Homeworld, so it comes as no surprise that the latest Gamespot Homeworld preview compares it to Wing Commander. You can find the preview here.
The game's ships and special effects look as good as any Wing Commander-style space shooter.
I would like to ask some people if they can help with the Fleet Commander project. We are still short on programmers so if you can program in C, C++ or any kind, pleace mail me. We also need a good sound editor, who needs to make music and SFX.
Last, I would like to ask people to help me with the story design of the game. I thought of something like this:
The story begins right before Prophecy starts. The Nephilim don't play in the game, but the Kilrathi have designed a few new ship types. They are constructing them secretly somewhere where Confed doesn't look. And then the player needs to fight them. The game will be played in one huge map (so the game contiues between the missions), giving the player the ability to fight the Kilrathi any way he or she wants.
If you have any comments on this please mail me.
We've got a solo quickie update to start the new day because Gamespot polls don't always stick around for long. Christopher Blair is one of five possible "Favorite Hero" choices available now. You can find the poll here at the Gamespot main page. Blair is currently tied with The Avatar in first place with 29%. Thanks to Joseph Huang and Ainamacar.
