I got a chance to play the alpha at PAX last year and got an instant hardon. The fact it feels like Freelancer is absolutely amazing, because I definitely played a lot of Freelancer. I used to start a multiplayer server, and then play by myself, it was that much fun.

So F&F Beta has been going a while, it's likely Closed Beta will be coming up soon, since the game has a summer launch. I can't wait, personally. ^_^

I didn't get to play it, but I hella signed up for the beta. Looks neat, but it could also fail miserably like most space games.

ACTUALLY FUCK THIS TOPIC ->

Colony Wars, mainly 1 and 2

JESUS FUCKING CHRIST THESE GAMES ROCKED THEY DEFINED MY CHILDHOOD AND THEY ARE THE ONLY REASON WHY I DON'T SUCK DICK FOR CRACK SO I CAN AFFORD TO BUY THE MATERIALS TO MAKE A STORMTROOPER OUTFIT BECAUSE STAR WARS WOULD HAVE BEEN MY ONLY OTHER OUT IN SPACE-FIGHTING SWEETNESS I THANK MY LORD JESUS CHRIST EVERY DAY FOR CREATING COLONY WARS.

Looks ok, I guess. I always wanted an RPG that was kind of like...if you played Warhammer 40k in any of its incarnations, you know the Imperial Navy game they came up with? Little models of these freakin massive ships that shot torpedoes the size of aircraft carriers at other ships and had boarding parties and fighter fleets in the thousands...shit like that. Kind of like 3d Winter Grasp but on an immense scale.

Dunno if that would work as an MMO, but I don't really care. A combination of WH40k, TIE Fighter, and BioShock.

Their Trial and Error Focus Testing influencing their design choices will definitely make the game a cut above. Designers tend to be pretty ego driven, believing that their decisions are law because they are a designer and do this shit professionally.

Seeing someone take the time to hold continual focus testing and have that curb the direction they go means a lot. I'm not sucking its dick or anything, but I talked with Scott Brown about the project at PAX and he seems like the kind of guy I want making games.

I'm hoping the beta is either sweet as fuck or fails hard, so I can be done with it. Not a big fan of juggling 2 MMOs, but this shows a lot of potential.

Also, what the fuck is Colony Wars?!

This is a "Play between raids" game right? It does look pretty spiffy.
