Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

We set course for the Sa-Matra. Alas, all of the fireballs converged on our position and we were quickly destroyed by the terrible Sa-Matra fireballs. Oh, and by the way, the time machine had to be removed back at Starbase to fit all of the bomb crap so I died for real. That's a bummer...I guess yo...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I recently discovered Ur-Quan Masters when I began doing some reminiscing about old games I used to play, and I felt like it was much more like a game I could embrace and embark on a quest to immerse myself in the gloriousness THAT IS Star Control..2?..or Ur-Quan?..or whatever it's called, the 3DO ...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

I did not expect my question to mean "I think you'll loose", so I saw little spoilers in there. (I never intended my question to be a hint at anything.) I can't speak to your intent, but asking "With your fleet-setup I presume you don't expect to win on your first try?" conveys that information jus...

Interesting set-up.
...
With your fleet-setup I presume you don't expect to win on your first try?
You do realize that telling him that his fleet composition isn't very good for the final battle counts as a spoiler?

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

However, powerful as it may be, they still need to use their crystal technology to reach its true potential for Sa-Matra-destroying power! They then announced that we are now fully prepared for task of doing just that! Awesome!! This is one of my few points of annoyance with the game. Once you have...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

(Go buy Star Control: Origins today!) <-- shameless plug Wait, do you actually like SC:O? Or are you just reflexively plugging it because it's more Star Control? Just to clarify, there has been a massive legal battle raging for the last couple of years between Stardock (the company making SC:O) and...

Wow, people are getting awfully free with the spoilers. Stop trying to tell him what he missed, folks!

Not quite an insta-kill; 5 shots doing 6 damage each is 30 damage, and Kzer-Za/Khor-Ah ships each have 42 crew.
Right you are. Strange, I could have sworn I remembered one-shotting Ur-Quan in that configuration. Clearly, it's time for me to replay the game again.

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

This is what I consider the beefiest of beefcake configurations while still using at least one of every module (gotta do those element sampling records!). From my perspective, I have only one immediate and paramount goal when entering battle (especially when you account for my crew expenditure allo...
