Re: What Does Annoy You The Most In Super Meele?

The top three things that annoy me most in Super Melee: 1) The planet 2) The planet 3) The planet I'm sure I've lost more crew to the planet than all other ships I've fought combined. Forget freeing people from the Ur-Quan; we should end the tyranny of planets! The worst is when you're at the edge o...

You push special and fire at the same time to launch marines. Also, the Orz Nemesis can change the way its gun faces by holding down special and pushing left or right.

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

Not once but twice. You're a masochist! It helps to take a lot of breaks and only do it little bits at a time, especially since I'm still finding the controls on my Android device a bit tricky. (Actually, lately, I've only been putting in maybe 15 minutes a day) Right now, I'm in Mycon territory, c...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

The green jumpy guys were really aggressive in the original too. We did that run-and-shoot dance a lot. True, and maybe it's just my imagination, but they seem to notice me from a lot further away and chase me a lot further than they used to. It could be that I just notice them more because I'm loo...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

I'm still working on this game. :) I got the Portal Spawner and the Burvixese Caster and sent the Ilwrath at the Thraddash. I got the Clear Spindle from the Pkunk and the four Pkunk Furies. I cleared the Evil Ones from the Spathi homeworld and I got the Taalo Shield from Orz space. Right now, I'm ma...

Re: No Earth game (SC2 Spoilers)

Just thought I'd revive this thread to say that I'm trying this again with the UQM version. (The above-mentioned version that I downloaded for my Android smartphone) :) The controls have taken some getting used to, but I've already gotten past the first major hurdle and gotten to Beta Corvi to get t...

Re: Minimum Number of Races

Theoretically, yes, but as I stated in an earlier post, without the Portal Spawner, it's questionable whether or not you would have time to wait the two weeks for the Chmmr to refit your ship and then fly to Crateris. Anyone want to try to find out? :)

Re: Minimum Number of Races

I just discovered something interesting: If you don't meet the Arilou, the game is unwinnable! I recently downloaded UQM for Android and have been playing the game on my smartphone. Just for fun, I thought I'd see if I could do the game without getting the Portal Spawner. At this point in the game, ...

Re: Questions about Star Control 3 gameplay

Oh man, I'd forgotten about the "You lied to the Owa" thing. (Or maybe I repressed the memory?) :P And since we're ragging on SC3 design choices, I think I'll add that one of my biggest complaints is that the game doesn't know who its audience is. The game is going to be played by people who played ...

Re: SC2's Greatest Mysteries (spoilers)

Yes, that would be silly. But it probably isn't like that. During the doctrinal conflict the Kzer-Za claim to the Captain that the Kohr-Ah will only be unleashed upon humanity and other species in Kzer-Za-pacified territory if the Kohr-Ah are victorious. This implies that if the Kzer-Za win, in the...
