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

I think Trog was just parodying common TV ads for upcoming shows that always start in fall. At least, that's my hope; I've been looking forward to his reaction to quasispace forever!

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

Right. Good to know. Means you'll miss a certain thing that can only happen if you don't have a specific one of those -and which would have been quite interesting to see your reaction to- but I suppose it can't be helped. And no, I'm not telling you anything about what this 'thing' is, because hone...

Re: A warning to the moderators of this forum.

I feel like I'm missing part of the discussion here... 2 questions:

1) Do we have a different platform in mind to migrate to?

2) What kind of attention are you seeking from the moderators? What do you want them to do? (Oops! I just made it three questions!) :P

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

As an extra bonus, I don't think there are any spoilers for SC2 for Trog to stumble across (yet)! That may be so, but there are plenty of spoilers for SC3, so I recommend against Trog reading it. You might ruin the one and only thing that's good about the game and then there will be no reason to pl...

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

Wow, is Star Control 3 really that bad? Short answer: Yes. Long answer: I'm considering starting a thread to help me compile an itemized list of everything wrong with Star Control 3 when I have a couple of hours to spare. I'm not even joking. :P Still, I stand by what I said above that I like some ...

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

Free the Doog? Urgh. Thanks for reminding me of one of the most poorly conceived parts of an altogether poor quality experience. I have to disagree with you on that; the Doog don't even make my top ten list of most poorly conceived parts of that game. :D Anyway, suffice it to say that we do not rec...

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

At this point, what would he buy with the extra RUs? The only thing left is fuel, or perhaps new escorts as they become available, since he hasn't lost a crew member since Pluto and he's already flying a topped off warship. Yeah, but this is Troglodyte we're talking about; I'm pretty sure he's alre...

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

I always find Ilwrath Avengers annoying to fight because homing weapons don't work when they're cloaked. (Including your Vindicator's ATS modules) ZFP Stingers are actually one of the better ships against them because they fire their shots in a spread, so some of the shots are sure to hit. But my fa...

Pik – “Hey! That’s not fair! I may have something important to contribute.” (blows a big puff of smoke through his blowholes) That's not smoke, that are spores! Erm...

Oh, I believe you! And I admire your dedication... or madness? (Or both?) :P

EDIT: Dedadness? or maybe... ooh! Madnication! :D
