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

Or, y'know, they have business arrangements with enough other races that they don't need to crew their own ships, just captain them. Or, alternatively, becoming Mauler crew is like going to debtor's prison. I expect that being assigned to crew duties on a Mauler would be rather punitive in nature in...

Because the crew pod is that tiny little green thing jutting off of the side, and they're already squeezed in like sardines?

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

There was one item that they sold that didn’t cost 100 crew; that being their fuel, which sell at a rate of 10 crew per 10 units. Ridiculous, and it also makes me ponder why the Melnorme claimed the Druuge practically gave away fuel! Compare the RU cost of 1 crew and 1 fuel. You are doubly cruel, k...

Re: Sequels strife

Pity that the content of whatever discover material has been handed over falls under non-dislosure requirements... Otherwise they could outsource sifting through e-mails to "us".... Unless you (and the rest of us) are a lawyer, this would be a BAD idea. The concept of legal importance in any docume...

Re: Sequels strife

Tactics indeed. Stardock, as expected, is trying to stall for as long as possible, hence requesting extensions and heaping immense amounts of "discovery evidence" on F & P's lawyers. The more billable hours they accrue, the less able F & P are to remain in the game. 10K emails is a slick way to try ...

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

They shared some information about themselves, mostly pertaining to their culture and lifestyle, which seems very business-centric. Sometimes, you have a gift for understatement. This is definitely one of those times. They even told us that we could benefit greatly from salvaging the resources from...

Re: Sequels strife

Kinda off topic of steam/gog/etc but EVERYONE wants both s*ardock and F&P to continue making games, right? (Saw that on reddit somewhere. its already been said is my guess) I absolutely want to see Fred, Paul, and everyone at TFB continue to make games. If Brad and Stardock dropped completely off t...

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.
