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

I don't think ship construction is especially spoilery, so I'll give my opinion straight: Considering you have piles of RU, and still have never suffered a single crew loss outside of that unfortunate encounter with the Starrunner, I questions Hayes's judgement on this. My take: Only 1 point defense...

Re: Sequels strife

Any of the races and other concepts from earlier SC lore that was used in 3, was used under license, which means that Fred and Paul maintain copyright and creative control over those elements. So if they should decide to do exactly what Legend did with those characters (however unlikely that might b...

Re: Sequels strife

This one part though strikes me as being vague enough to the point of potential problems: We were able to come to a very specific understanding on the alien characters and races — how they look and act. Stardock is dropping all trademark registration of the alien names and won't use the described a...

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

One of only two non-standard game overs in SC2, the other being surrendering to the Ur-Quan. SC3 had more littered about, and they made far less thematic sense, but enough about that. Is this even spoiler tag worthy? Pretty sure we've seen the surrender scene, and the device activation was just tri...

Of course, the lawyers are the big winners from the whole fiasco.
As they always are. Sometimes the legal system seems to have been designed primarily to keep lawyers gainfully employed.

Re: Trying to beat star control origins... Yes Spoilers!

In exchange for the withdrawal of negative votes, Stardock promised that episode three will be much longer... I've heard of others trying this tactic before, and it has always been a scam. Can't see why this time would be different. It's usually a cheap ploy for the party in the wrong to cut their ...

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

... which just so happened to big a big pile of useless junk (but including ironically an Ultron replacement part) Funnily enough, the Druuge describe Wimbli's Trident and the Glowing Rod accurately, but completely omit any mention of the Rosy Sphere in their tirade. That is because, of course, tha...

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

I don’t follow. Here’s all of the dialogue I’ve recorded from the Kohr-Ah thus far, and I’ve never seen them use the word “annihilate” (or weird misspellings of it) even once: (snicker-snack for space) All will become clear in time. Let's just leave it at that. I don't even know why I would leave a...

Also I think "cleansing" and "to cleanse" are actually the favourite words of the Kohr-Ah.
Used in the same context, though.
It's a pretty close contest, to be fair. At the end of the day, though, still bad news for whoever they might be talking to.
