    Solid pitch demo, space combat looked fluid and fun. Sometimes it sucks all this trademark and licensing… prevents some great games and mods from ever seeing daylight in the end…

    Mod support is huge selling factor for me, just because sometimes the game sits in my steam account for years before I touch it… so its nice to see enhancements and possible content being added to a game to improve it even more.

    I like the Star Wars universe a lot and its a shame sometimes game companies are so afraid to make a game. EA is so worried about making MP only style games and have almost abandoned making any SP only games. But the top selling games out there are usually SP games or SP games with MP added in.

    If you make a good game and the especially a proven IP like Star Wars, the game will sell, just make it good and listen to the fans and they will buy it 🙂

    Wow that trailer really peeked my excitement 😉

    I will pass judgment when I see more of this one, I do like that it has SP and MP game modes.

    I will admit that VD2 certainly fell off my radar because it has been in early access roughly 2yrs. It does look great compared to 2016 version I remember. Early access can build a following, but it can also be harmful for the game as well. I think early access should be restricted to a game that has less than a year of development left.

    But I hope Chaosavy stays at it and gets this game to a complete state and I will look at Void Destroyer again.

    Edit should be taken care of now, members have the ability to edit there posts up to a week after they make them. I may increase that to like several months or to a year.

    Delete, I will look into. That would be a mod since bbpress user roles don’t have this option by default.

    Right now the text color is just plain white, I might tone it down to a softer color of white so its easier on the eyes.

    I can try that and see what people think. I will try to make this change this weekend, to see what people think. I can also alternate the color backgrounds like on the forum mainpage if that is better looking too, or should I leave it all black?

    Update: Change made, let me know if anyone sees some glaring issues 🙂
    Update: I will try to play with the font a little this weekend as well if I can find the time and see how people like the change I have a few I picked out and I will try one for a few days and see if people complain about it and hopefully I have found one that is easy to read but also scifi themed at the same time.

    I think there is issues with editing a post you have recently posted.

    This should be fixed now, for some reason the default of ‘0’ minutes to edit a post is meant to mean unlimited. For some reason it is shutting off edit. So I set it to 10080min which is a week.

    I have yet to watch this show it was on Netflix, but think it got removed since Amazon picked up the rights to the show. It will have a season 4 and you have to be Amazon Prime member to watch their shows. I guess in the end Prime is cheaper than Netflix, but Amazon definitely lacks the library of shows and movies compared to Netflix.

    Hoping this hits Netflix soon, I only didn’t see it in the theater because reviews were kinda Meh on it so i was like ok I will wait.

    Agreed so far Rogue One, is definitely my favorite SW film from the most recent out of SW7, SW8. Its a shame that a offshoot movie is better than the main franchise 😉

    I actually hated how they portrayed Luke in this movie, it was sad how they took a iconic character and flushed him down the toilet. I was expecting a lot more, this movie made it that I won’t see SW9 in the theater, I will wait until it hits Netflix.

    Even the title…. The Last Jedi…. You would think there would have been some epic scenes in this movie, it was actually kinda blah for me.

    At least, I waited 2yrs and still haven’t played X:R yet after I bought it 😀

    But like I said I give props to Egosoft that they do not quit on their games and they are worth a look or purchase just because they do fix their games if you give them the time. I just hope the core game is fleshed out and stable before they start putting DLC in.

    I am particularly interested with station interaction and exploration to see how it improves over X:R.

    Agreed, if they make this game following the Skyrim template of open world (universe), single player, decent story and the ability to mod. This game will still be being played 6-10yrs later like Skyrim is. They know the forumla, so give us more of it with a different theme and people will give you money 🙂

    I haven’t looked too much into this game yet, but looks pretty good. I hate sometimes how people give negative comments on a game that is alpha/early access…. its not done yet. But from the trailer on Steam it does look like it has a lot of the aspects people look for. I am interested in the building of a force and what that entails if you don’t choose a side to fight for.

    Is it a solid game Pinback, is it worth getting?

    I swear there was a thread or maybe it was just mentioned in another thread, but the E3 reveal was basically nothing…. they just confirmed they are indeed working on a space game 🙂 I will make a dedicated area for it once more starts to get released on it.

    Ironhound, what made me the most excited is how the developer just loves his game and I believe they truly want to make something great. The little touches of radio stations and personal playlists is just icing on the cake. If they can make this universe feel alive with good npc interactions and make interactions have universal impact I think they will have a winner and a game that will live on for years like Freelancer has. And if modding is available the game could be limitless in scope with the ability to make campaigns/story missions or just add on to the universe as a whole.

    I have always loved customizations in games so I hope we will be able to do this with every aspect of Rebel Galaxy Outlaw. I will agree with you again, that this game interests me more than Star Citizen, just for the fact they are giving me what I want and it hasn’t been 6yrs and still in alpha??? 😉 haha

    I hope 2019 will be a good year and Rebel Galaxy Outlaw will meet all of our expectations, I bought Rebel Galaxy and I will be playing it soon just so I can get a feel for their universe.

    Hey Pinback, nice to see you around again… thought something happened to you.

    Yes technology caught up with SSC, I had to update the backend of the site to run on these newer versions of PHP/SQL and some other plugins. This is why SSC was getting hammered with spam constantly because of the security flaws in the backend. I solved that issue, now I am just slowly trying to put everything back together 🙂

    Edit feature, people can’t edit their posts? I swear they can I see people edit their posts and I believe everyone has the same permissions. The WYSIWYG editor I think has smilies, I can definitely look into getting more… no one has requested it until now.

    I get to play some games a few hours a week… I have come to the conclusion that I will die before I play all the games in my steam library and I will will it to one of my kids to fight over hahaha

    But good to have you back and hope your in good health. I will restore your moderator privs within the next day or so.

    🙂 I am hoping there is mods and player made patches that might fix some of the issues with X:R when I finally sit down to play it.

    X4 system specs aren’t too bad with the GTX1070+ and 16GB of memory for recommended specs. Which honestly make sense after watching the videos. I wanted to buy another 16GB for my system sometime next year, damn memory prices have been high for over a year now.

    I do hope Egosoft has a better launch of X4 than with X:R, because even though I have never finished a X game, I still do admire the fact they are a dedicated space/scifi game developer and there isn’t many of those 🙂

    Sat down and watched this, yeah I was bored haha. But it wasn’t that bad really.

    We caused an ice age, we created I humanoids that could live in the cold. Scientists played around (like always) and haven them the ability for self thought and reproduction. So humans want them dead 🙂

    Soldiers acting is a little cheesy at times but it’s watchable to see a possible scenario for our world 😉
