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

I have to assume at this point that Trog is going to eventually rewind several months (or more, depending on how long he keeps following this doomed chronological thread) to before he incited the rebellion in Yehat space. He has taken many casualties already, and I have a feeling he is just waiting...

Re: Origins Melee Beta

It's because most companies are sensible enough not to try to stop people from talking about their resumes or new projects... but not all. Look at the recent fiasco with Konami suing their former employees for daring to insinuate that they may have once worked there while searching for new jobs. Ano...

Uh oh. Ignore that advice at your own risk, and remember your Metachron prediction too.

Re: Sequels strife

There's no grounds for a suit anyway. Domain names are first come, first served, which is why domain squatting is so popular. Bigger companies have tried and failed.

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

Uh… so yeah, we also learned they will fight to the death to try to get their sun thingy back, but wouldn’t the destruction of our ship also destroy their prized (non-)possession? Many Precursor artifacts are known for being extremely resilient, which is why they have survived all these millennia i...

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

Huh, that's odd. All of my testing from years ago showed that the left edge was rebel space and the right was royalist. Maybe that was reversed for the 3DO version, maybe my memory sucks, either way I apologize for steering you wrong.

Re: Sequels strife

Of course. Words belied by actions is par for the course at this point. That sounded to me, at least, like an eminently reasonable compromise, so of course it was rejected. That, I'm guessing, was never the planned endgame here despite Brad's repeated insistences to the contrary. Small wonder he bai...

Re: Origins Melee Beta

Some friends, sheesh. I have a very small social media presence, and like it that way. Some of my friends may not like that, but not enough to stop talking to me. And back in January, this whole legal situation was a lot more nebulous and grey than it is now. I think a lot of us wanted to be optimis...

Re: Sequels strife

The sad reality of legal battles is that Stardock, with all the resources of a corporation, are easily going to outlast Fred and Paul if they decide to drag this out. The more cheap tricks they play, the more effective this tactic becomes, because lawyers are expensive and wading through more bullsh...
