Been having a look for a new Freelancer and have found something about the guy who did freelancer check out these links

http://www.gamesradar.com/wing-commander-freelancer-creator-making-another-space-sim/

http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/

It looks amazing hopefully it will make it to release play the video on the second link it looks so good.

Also Valve is working on a open world space game could also be worth a look this link also has more about Star Citizen

Early days yet then. However it looks very promising. I just hope it is not an mmo and doesn't get cancelled. I read it will be at least two years before we see it :-( Definately keep on eye on this one.

It's such a shame that we have had a huge gap since Freelancer came out, with nothing to really replace it. I remember Dark Star also looked promising but ultimately failed. Let's hope this is not like that.

Do you guys recall the X3: Reunion debacle? We all rushed out to buy it and played it for about 30 minutes before giving up as it was utterly unfathomable.

LOL, I remember! Infact I even tried it out again not long ago and was just as stumped as I was when I first played it.

This Star Citizen looks to be a lot more user friendly - it is being made by one of the guys that did Freelancer and Starlancer. If you look at what he is trying to achieve with it, it looks truly ground-breaking!

I cant look at games related stuff at work because of bleeding web page restrictions, I will check it out a bit later. I wouldn't mind having a go at a good old space game, it has been a while.

Well, the sad thing is I only recently took our Freelancer server offline - as me and Maximus got bored with it. It will take 5 minutes to turn it back on again, so if you have the need for a space game now, I can always put it back up so we can give it a whirl. May even give me and Maximus a reason to play it again :-)

It was a modified version of Freelancer - the Discovery Mod, which among other things, allowed you to pilot capital ships and added loads of new systems. There are some links to it still at the bottom of the home page on this site - the Wiki is a good one to show you the kind of ships you can buy.

We did however, get to a point where we had shed-loads of money and nothing to spend it on so gave up.

I digress, I am really looking forward to Star Citizen - I just hope it is good as we haven't had a decent space sim in what seems like ages. Definitely check it out, but remember it is not scheduled for release until 2015!

Well if previous experience has taught us anything , it is that games with a long development time always turn out well…………

While I agree that we can't get too hyped for it incase it turns out to be crap, if you are referring to A:CM, you may find that the majority of the game was actually done in 9 months. Clicky me for the full article where the quote below originates:

"The game feels like it was made in nine months," said a source who worked on the project. "That's because it was."


Star Citizen does however, have the advantage of not having a publisher. It is actually a game in development based on funds it has received. The main guy involved is really passionate about making it the 'ultimate space sim' and you know what? ...I believe he can do it. The goal was 2mil dollars, they are currently at 8.5mil - so we may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome!

I hope it all works out. What makes me apprehensive about games developers and their promises is; in the Colonial Marines demo videos, the guy narrating seemed so passionate about the game and the film, then ends up churning out that wank in nine months.

What I think people really need to restore faith is a game about a chain wanking, bearded, fiat Panda driving mother person. Some of the fascinating adventures would involve:

- Getting up in the morning.

- Driving to work.

- Writing a load of old balls that no one ever reads.

- Driving home.

- Wanking into a sock.

What do you think? I might see if I can get some start up cash.

Mind the language please Greg. Edited post.

It is a lovely idea although why play that game when you are living it already?

Yes the demo as we found out is nothing like the real game. You should have seen the crap that the Gearbox president dealt with from rabid fans. It is funny viewing. You can not help feeling lied to by rich scumbags like that

Fair enough, but exactly who's delicate little constitution are we protecting?

As I mentioned to you, I am trying to get some more people on board so I would prefer it if language was kept in check. Who knows what kind of constitution our new comers will have.
