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.

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

This is kind of funny to me... I've fallen way behind in reading through this thread, so I don't know what's been happening... The last part I'm caught up with is from February 22, 2018, when you had just sent the Ilwrath at the Thraddash, three real-time months and 9 forum pages ago, but it seems t...

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

One thing that can be said about fighting Ilwrath ships: They really make you realize just how many of the ships in this game have homing weapons when they suddenly don't work any more. I suddenly feel like compiling a list, so I hope you don't mind me putting it in your thread, Trog. :) (Lifted fro...
