I hate what Stardock is doing but I HAVE to get the game. I spent so much time excited about it that it would feel wrong to not get it. It does look prtty good. I would feel really guilty of we don't get ghosts though. But yeah expect posts about the game from me in the future.

I preordered it and considered asking for a refund but I didn't have the guts. Maybe I'm just morally week but it looks good and I need my Star Control.

That being said, I'll keep mostly quiet about it. Although I am wondering if they kept in the Arilou and Melnorme and such, so I'll let you know if I see those.

The game is being horribly laggy with cutscenes and dialogue and some times skipping cutscenes... not a good sign...

So it turns out... my computer straight up just can't play the game... I turned down the resolution, textures, shadows, All to their lowest and the game is still extremely slow and basically unplayable. I already got my refund. Man, this is incredibly disappointing.

For the time being, the Arilou DLC is not available, and the Melnorme are not part of the game (at least not under that name. They even changed Mael-Num to something else, see Frogboy's post on the UQM forums). Allegedly, the race bearing that name and other similarities (orange skin,...) are otherwise not resembling the Melnorme.


Edit: (An image of the previous Melnorme, then Maelnum, now Maelnir, can be found here (another UQM-post of Frogboy).)

Started watching the video, thanks Alvarin.
It does indeed look good.

But from the reports so far, my PC will not be able to handle the game...

Anyway, the "Lexites" seem to be a renamed Androsynth....

I had to switch my CPU to an i5 to play this game, but otherwise it's good, even set on low. (I have a 6 years old graphics card.)
