Re: Questions about Star Control 3 gameplay

The Dak translator is a perfect example. There's nothing you have to do to get it, and there's no indication that it even exists or that you need it. One day, your science team just creates it. If the game was like SCII, you'd find out from another Crux race that you need a translator, and then you'...

Re: SC2's Greatest Mysteries (spoilers)

Is it even possible to get the Taalo shield if you don't ally with them? I don't remember.

Re: SC2's Greatest Mysteries (spoilers)

All this talk about the Orz has gotten me thinking... I always ally with the Orz without a second thought because I know it's the proper way to complete the game, but in reality, would you really trust the Orz? They obviously played some part in the destruction of the Androsynth, and it's impossible...

Re: SCII Voice Acting

As I recall, some races pronounce it "ut-wig," and others pronounce it "oot-wig," so both could be correct. Different races pronounce "Spathi" differently, too.

Or maybe it was just Commander Hayes who pronounced it differently from everyone else :?. I don't remember.

Re: SCII Voice Acting

I know it's another controversial one, but SCII's Chmmr is another one of my favorite voices. SC3's is ok; I'm more annoyed with how the Chmmr were used in the story than anything else about them.

Re: SCII Voice Acting

Does anyone know what Fred and Paul think about the voices? I know that they were involved, and that Paul himself provided the voice for the Mycon and Talking Pet. I remember the topic did come up briefly in the original IRC chat - relevant parts below :) <Mephisto_> Fwiffo: Did you hire the voice-...

Re: SCII Voice Acting

Nope! I was a bit reluctant to try the HD version since I read that it was just in alpha with quite a few bugs, so I decided to wait. Maybe I'll have to check it out though, I'm guessing it is somehow different from the original "urgh urhg *moan*"-Robert-Smith-has-diarrhea-voice? Yep, The Utwig dia...

Re: Questions about Star Control 3 gameplay

Thanks for the background chat, those were some pretty good descriptions! I think colonists reproduce, and if you don't have a guide having plenty of colonies producing fuel is quite nifty cuz you'll be flying back and forth a lot on that darn 3D map if you don't want to use ICOM. And waiting too l...

Re: SCII Voice Acting

Does anyone know what Fred and Paul think about the voices? I know that they were involved, and that Paul himself provided the voice for the Mycon and Talking Pet. Pretty much! The Orz one was the worst for me, it just took away all their menacing creepiness. The Pkunk was also a bit difficult to de...

SCII Voice Acting

The voice acting is probably the most controversial part of Star Control II. Some love it, some hate it. Personally, while I admit that the voice acting isn't top-notch, most of it is still fairly good, and to me, it's part of the quintessential Star Control experience. Some voices, like the VUX and...
