When you've started to form slang terms for weapons in your head without even realizing it, like Autopulse laser=apple, Frag-bomblets=froglets and Hypervolicty driver=hype, lol.

Did anyone else realize that firing large groups of non-beam weapons (particularly on capships) can sound like a catchy beat? on an Onslaught try 2
hypervelocity drivers,2 mark IXs and some assault guns.

So far I'm loving the new update, haven't been on this site in quite some time. But I was wondering, what is a good way to get into more fights? so far I have over 200k credits and 3 ships, a Hammerhead, a Wolf and a Lasher. I am able to take on fleets 3 times my size, but It seems there are less pirates in this new version, is there a way I can kill more stuff without *** off the factions who could sell me ships?

Discussions / Dreamkeepers (graphic novel/webcomic)
« on: August 19, 2014, 11:48:59 AM » Dreamkeepers is one of my favorite comics of all time, the website does a much better job of explaining the story than I could, But I'll try anyway. The premise of the story is basically that each living human has a counterpart in the "Dreamworld" called a Dreamkeeper, the beings in the Dreamworld are not aware of us, and we are not aware of them. Your Dreamkeeper is supposed to fight off nightmares who are a malevolent force who can cross in to either dimension, and seek to destroy all sentient life. To fight them, every Dreamkeeper has a unique power, unfortunately, in the city the story takes place in, power usage is banned by the government, and That's basically where it starts off. There are currently 3 graphic novels released and a 4th is on it's way sometime in December, the graphic novels are accompanied by a free weekly webcomic, called Prelude, which is basically a look at what the characters were doing years before the main story started, it is much more lighthearted than the graphic novels are (they can be very dark at times). Most of the art in the comic is fantastic, that's all I got to say, check it out :).

Started playing this game a few days ago, I love it! the most air kills I've got in one match is 7, there's all kinds if stuff you can pull off in this game, once I landed a Buffalo with only 1 wing on an airfield for repairs. Everything in this game is so awesome, If you don't already play it I highly recommend you at least try it.

Why the heck are people trading virtual stuff for real money if the stuff they're trading isn't special to begin with? ???
And they don't even know if the game will be good or not?, I want to look forward to this game, but but this type business model always makes me really skeptical.

I found a neat little game in which you can build a robot KSP style. It can be any type you want, a bomber, fighter, a tank, a buggy or a blimp. You can then compete in TDM type matches against others, it's pretty fun so far. You can register and download the alpha for free here.

I jumped on the Saints Row wagon when number 2 came out, and enjoyed it enough to get Saints Row 3 and 4.

The Saints Row franchise is like what the old GTA(2D version) used to be - FUN. It's not trying to imitate real life or real crime, it's trying to imitate balls to the walls WTF?! Laughing out loud ear to ear grinning responses.

I have to say though that the formula can be a bit too repetitive and grindy if you absolutely positively want to get 100% completion every mission, but it is still fun.

Saints row doesn't care that it is over the top, in your face, rude, vulgar and a bit of a guilty pleasure. But it is sure a lot more fun than GTA4 where you had your friends calling you every 5 minutes because they were lonely and depressed. No, in Saints Row you call your friends to fight by your side, and it's fun to hear their little conversations, reunions and dialogues.

Saints row 2 and 3 are probably my favourites, the saints row 4 has a solid campaign but the actual missions and map are pretty much the same from saints row 3, so it could have been DLC, on the other hand it's a decent length campaign and it concludes the series.
I own SR 2 and 3, I got 4 last week and I think it's the best once yet, so much fun.

Meteor hit is overdue, super volcano eruption is overdue, super tsunami is overdue and over top of that "our" space program is taking backwards ever since we make first step on Moon. Beside that i heard/read (somewhere, don't know where) that our brain aka IQ is going full speed backwards, so average dude from like 2k years before would be much smarter than average dude now  ;D

So, all in all, we got few natural Armageddons just waiting to happen and we don't get smarter. Don't think we are going anywhere  ;D  And if we manage to dodge all that i don't think we can survive our natural dumbness :D  we are expert in exterminating each other.
Asteroid impact cannot be "overdue" it's just random, because objects in space don't lose their velocity unless another force acts upon them, two rocks could have collided and a killer asteroid broke off and is headed our way now. Or it might be blocked or pulled by something else millions of light years on it's path to Earth, We just have no way of knowing until it gets closer.

Alex just resent my key, thread resolved.

I think it'll end up being an X3 style game where you can keep playing in the sandbox as much as you want.

Discussions / No More Room in Hell (HL2 mod)
« on: March 08, 2014, 05:39:32 PM »

NMRiH is a HL2 tactical zombie survival mod, think Left 4 Dead only with slow zombies and a lot harder. Ammo and guns are very scarce and body shots on zombies are almost useless, and you can't swing the larger melee weapons very often without getting tired. There are status effects like bleeding and infection, dead players also become AI zombies after death :). And there are lots of community made maps and skins for characters on the official forums. Good fun with friends if you don't mind how difficult it can be sometimes.

General Discussion / How to download Starsector to my new computer?
« on: March 08, 2014, 05:09:17 PM »
I recently built a gaming PC and I would like to download Starsector to it. Is there a way to play the game on multiple computers or would I have to purchase a second time?
