Re: Games other than Star Control

I've been playing the crap out of Smash Ultimate since release as well, but I don't play online. Your recent avatar change kind of gave that one away, though. I've been taking a break over the past couple of days to play Wonder Boy: The Dragon's Trap. Fantastic remake of what was probably the best g...

Re: Let's talk about Star Control 3.....

They were certainly there. I can remember collecting piles of them, but never actually using them. I felt that they would break what was already a pretty shallow difficulty curve, not that combat was an especially prominent part of the story mode in SC3.

Re: Ideas for playthrough?

If you have actually completed a no-starbase run of the game, I'm not sure any challenge we propose that's not a variant on that would actually be more difficult, assuming difficulty is what you're looking for.

Re: Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

Exactly correct. Stardock is trying to effectively transfer the copyrights from Fred and Paul to Accolade, which by extension would seemingly make Stardock the copyright holders... But they only purchased the trademarks, so...? Not sure what the endgame is supposed to be for that argument, maybe tha...

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

Captain, with all due respect, I know your experiences with the Ilwrath have been traumatic, but perhaps emulating their methods is not the best way to deal with your issues.

Re: Stardock CEO threatens to "eliminate" this community

That has not stopped big companies with deep pockets pulling down these things before. Like it or not, we are using trademarked terms and copyrighted imagery, and who owns those rights is exactly what is in dispute here. I doubt any of us here in this community would have the money, ability, and tim...

Re: Writing Prompt: An Eluder crewed by 29 Spathi and 1 Ilwrath

When you said "does not necessarily need to have Ilwrath present", the concept that stuck in my mind was sort of a horror/Werewolf style story. Out of the 30 crew, one is *other*, and is slowly eliminating the Spathi one by one for whatever nefarious purpose (or maybe the lack of one, which is it's ...

I swear, no sleazy, underhanded tactic is below them at this point. The whole situation only gets more troubling with each update.

Re: ZOMG REAL SC3

Well, it took only a couple of months before this got caught up in legal limbo, and the stories of suits and countersuits overshadowed the announcement completely. We've been discussing that for nearly a year as well, and I'm guessing we will be for several more to come. Maybe once that's wrapped up...

Re: I'm getting Origins

Against my better judgment, I actually played the game because I wanted to know how much was reused from the previous installement. Here are a few things: 1) the gameplay itself is okay at best, lander is horrible, combat dynamics are weird, exploration in general is okay 2) The aliens are extremel...
