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!
Playing FTL over the last couple of weeks has inspired in me a sort of nostalgia-fueled space frenzy. Since that little Rogue-like graced my hard drive, I've since installed Independence War 2, Freespace 2, Nexus: The Jupiter Incident (On sale on gog.com for $3.99 currently), and have even been thinking a bit about what the hell happened to Homeworld.
Basically, this has all culminated in me once again downloading my copy of X3: Reunion via digital distribution. This is kind of an exercise in masochism if I remember correctly. The game features an 87-page manual and a complete lack of in-game tutorial. I believe the last time I had this game installed, years ago, I had a notepad sitting in my lap with multiple pages of commands, command trees and tool tips written down. The download is currently at 21%...and I'm wondering if I'm not better off just seeking out a copy of Freelancer or something (The first time I got into X3, I played for several days before realizing there was a fast-forward button).
So, what's up space people? Anyone playing X right now? Space sims in general? I'm on a huge fucking space kick right now, right down to Battlestar Galactica in my instant cue, so I want to talk some goddamned space with you people.
Edit: Also, hey. I haven't really been around much the last few years. How's it going...
