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

Oh, and by the way, I would also recommend getting more than one "slot" with storage, at least in the early game, for the sake of fuel efficiency. The more you can bring back in one go, the less fuel you have to spend getting to the places you are going to mine, as you won't need to go back and for...

Re: Contest time Hunams of the world!

Since it would seem that there is a distinct possibility of the continuation of postponements, perhaps some of the prospective artists would like to hear some recommendations. I for one would love to see, for example, a picture of a Yehat Terminator firing at a Mycon Podship while absorbing it's hom...

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

I envy you trog. Playing the best game ever for the first time. I actually had to retake a couple classes way back when because i couldn't stop playing! All the while constantly telling myself to resist the urge to explore stuff about Star Control! It's funny, I really enjoy playing the high-action...

Re: Contest time Hunams of the world!

Is it too late to vote on the contest? I mean, all things considered, the voting should be extended for the duration up until the time the contest actually starts! In which case, I would like the vote that the contest be artwork, which could include Lego models of Star Control models.

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

As Maloo Oture and Alvarin are giving some subtle hints to the importance of alien communication, it would appear that my preconceived notion that solving the mysteries of the game and advancing further in the open-ended storyline depends highly on the ability to obtain information from alien specie...

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

Thanks Quasispatial for your story, I could almost imagine a ship...going somewhere...and doing something...sort of. But your advice on fuel I will definitely take to heart. I'm planning on making a flight plan that will take me in a circular path with the neighboring stars for early interstellar ex...

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

So I used to play Star Control 1 in high school and enjoyed it thoroughly, even though I felt the only thing missing was a main story line. The Melee mode was awesome but for a 1-player it was pretty much for training to know all of the ships and their strengths and weaknesses and carry that over in...

Re: Tell us about your retro video game memories

I heard several people compare and contrast Starflight with Star Control and rightly so with so many similarities between the two. I enjoyed the alien encounters, whether it was trying to figure out how to answer the robotic race Mechan 9's questions correctly, repeatedly paying tribute to the insec...

Re: Tell us about your retro video game memories

It wasn't until I got a game called Star Command that I began seeing some semblance of animated graphics, which was nothing more than different icons, sometimes shooting at each other, on different backdrops. The game was highly addictive, and centered around the idea of being in a far distant futur...
