Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Woo! Go Trog! :D (Where's a popcorn emoji when you need one?) :P I also only found out I could send the defenders away once I played UQM. In the original DOS series this works too, but I never used it. The ring of defenders also stays on their place and does not let itself get lured away, with the "...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

My personal preference would be one Hellbore Cannon, (in the nose) one crew pod, one high-eff fuel system, and three shiva furnaces. (I'd rather have the extra recharging than auto-aiming, but maybe that's just me)

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

(If you've already heard their "normal" jokes, perhaps Zelnick doesn't get the option to ask them about their sense of humour) I would have to cross-reference my save game patterns with my logs to determine which file would be prior to the debut encounter with the Umgah, but then I assume I would h...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

That came from the endgame credits here - Youtube -> watch?v=WJK_oB6Wm8U @8:40 Oh, I know where the joke came from. I was just trying to reassure Trog that it wasn't because he missed something. And regarding TFB stuff: Cool, I learned something new today. :) Also, one other thing: I probably shoul...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Huh, this might just be ignorance on my part, but I was under the impression that all the voice-acting in the 3DO release was fan recordings. How "official" is the official release? (Though I see in the credits that Paul Reiche III himself did the voices of the Mycon and the Dnyarri) Also, fun bit o...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Right you are. Strange, I could have sworn I remembered one-shotting Ur-Quan in that configuration. Clearly, it's time for me to replay the game again. Theoretically, if the Ur-Quan launched 12 fighters, that would leave them with 30 crew and you could one-shot them. Also, the game is totally worth...

Re: About to try to beat Star Control 2...no spoilers!

Hey there, I've been neglecting this thread for... over a year, it seems, :oops: but I wanted to let you know that I'm trying to catch up now. :) (My new job is slow enough that I have free time to read stuff at work; don't tell my boss) ;) I see you have the Utwig bomb and the Dnyarri and you've fo...

Re: Ideas for playthrough?

I made my debut on these forums, playing a no Earth starbase game. :D

This thread is giving me other ideas, though. Maybe I'll pick this game up again. :) (An iron man game could be fun)

Re: How starcontrol II was too realistic

Today, I learned that I've been mentally mispronouncing Paul Reiche's name for decades. :P Anyway, cool interview; I've never actually seen and heard those two before. It's nice to get a glimpse into the minds of the people who created these fantastic games. :)

Yeah, I'm inclined to disbelieve the authenticity of that quote. It sounds like something a cartoon supervillain would say, rather than a real person.
