Looks very promising, more space games to the people!

Man, there are like 3 great looking online space sim games in development right now. Wish one of them would release though...

And Sony can't greenlight a Colony Wars sequel. *shakes head*

Yeeeeees! It looks A BIT better, than the first game, where everything has been made by lines and You could see through. :-) Personally, I like the look of this more, than Star Citizen. Yes, it is amazingly done, but this is cleaner and more eye pleasing for me. :-)

You can hail other ships in this beta build, talk to them on the mic if they accept.

That's awesome.

I would love to try this beta but I won't pay $75 for it. The game looks great though.

This and Star Citizen will be amazing. And the console peasants get neither.

Word on the EG forums is that the high price point is worth the risk as the game is pretty excellent at this stage.

$75 for an early access game. I laughed out loud.

As a fan who poured tons of hours into the original game, I'm so glad Frontier seems to have made a worthy modern adaption. With that out of the way, that price point is flipping ridiculous. $75 for early access. Yeah. Right. Devs are definitely branding space sims as "Ferraris of gaming" right now.

I'm fine waiting for the steam sales to pop up.

not really infinite when you are limited to one galaxy and "only" 400 mill star systems. What a let down.

j/k

looks excellent, but $75 for beta access is a bit much. imo. hmm.

    nostradamus @Megido: errr... no. it has long cutscenes, yes, but there is a lot of meat to the game compared to say, MGS:TEA where you beat the game in less than 10 hours and there still is a lot of cutscenes. (1 Hour ago)

  • Megido
    Megido The problem with MGS2 is that like 80% of the game is story, and the story sucks. When you get to play, MGS2 is good. (2 Hours ago)

    asdfg @nostradamus: very interesting vid. Had no idea MGS2 had so much detail. Crazy what the PS2 and Kojima could pull off. (2 Hours ago)
