Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
OK so in my quest for space sims, i saw X3 on Steam.
G&T, tell me how this game is, it looks pretty awesome, but looks have deceived me before.
We can just turn this thread into a discussion about it as well, if it gains enough momentum I'll make a much better OP also.
edit: Also, would i need a joystick for this game?
edit: making this op with more razzle dazzle.
This game is fucking awesome!
Stolen shamelessly from wikipedia!
X3 is a first person space simulator. The game is free roaming where the player can go and do whatever they like, wherever they like, whenever they like, provided they have the in-game means to do so such as race, notoriety, rank and equipment. The player constantly remains in a ship unless they eject into space wearing a spacesuit. Ships can dock at different stations depending on their class. When within stations the player remains in their ship but is protected by the stations shields. The main driving force of the game is to acquire â€˜creditsâ€™, the universal currency in the X Universe. Credits can be used to buy wares to trade, equipment to use, stations to build and ships to fly and command. The player can own an unlimited number of ships and stations. All moving ship class objects which can be acquired by the player can be flown by the player.
Wow! Awesome Burgu! How does it look?!
Like sex. OUCH MY H-Scroll!
Ok that looks pretty cool, any mods that I can use?
You bet your sweet ass there are. Unfortunately, since I have limited experience with the game, I can only point you in the direction of a pretty kickass looking thread from a website.
