Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Yeah, now that you mention it, it is kind of fun to shoot at Cruiser nukes with the probe... (smiles while staring into the distance and begins to drift away...followed by the Homer Simpson drool) Hey Trog! Snap out of it! Back on topic! Okay, so I know many folks around here might take some offense...

Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Oh good! Another Star Control 1 player! You know, I remember when playing Star control 1 (and players who've played SC2 can identify with this too) the most difficult challenge for me was learning how to fly the ship with control. I mean, I started off the same way folks do when first playing "Aster...

Re: The YouTube Thread

I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I enjoyed that video. I found it to be informative and objective. Even though he claims it's his favorite game, he didn't go out of his way to glorify Star Control 2 as though it's completely perfect and has zero faults. Great overview that really hit the high ...

Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Wow Alvarin! Just like Draxas, I never realized that either! And you know what?... that may be what makes the tutorial so great is how you're getting taught really quick how to perform the basic functions of the game without even realizing it! So seemless! Come to think of it, had the opening encoun...

Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Well, I too also agree with Draxas. The fun and vibrant outlook that the game embodies is pleasantly coupled with funny, friendly aliens (and even the evil ones have their own little side act of comedy!) The music only emphasizes the delight with sounds and tones bring out the characters of the alie...

Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Ok, so there seems to be a consensus with Draxas and Alvarin. And what about you, palmpet? What are your reasons for loving Star Control 2? (Please keep in mind that stating it's in your top 3 and mentioning other games you like doesn't count as answering the question. :P )

Re: 4 Great Games That Everyone Should Try... or Else!

Top notch answer Draxas! Superb! I'll get back with you on that, but first... My first encounter was SC1 at year 92(?), then quite a bit later I found SC2. Same as Draxas, still in my very top. Was really happy to have come across SC3 on CDROM... And then I played it... Played the ~modern remake of ...
