i picked it up for under $10 on release day from g2a marketplace...i laughed at their price then, just like i'm laughing at their reduced price now...

Flim and Flam are best ponies?

i was having this very discussion on the facebook star control 2 group.

story is the most important thing in video games to me...game play is a close second...and finally graphics.
i would not be wounded one bit if they used the same engine that drives sc2/uqm. sco is pretty, sure, but it lacks the story and continuation i wanted out of a sc2 sequel.
would it be underwhelming...yes...but if the story is there and well written...then i could overlook it all.

hell id be ecstatic if they made half life 3 using the same engine as the first game...if the story is there, and good, then it wouldn't matter...not in the least.

but i know my way of seeing it isn't for everyone...people need there eye candy for sure...and thats ok too.

im rather intrigued that their talking dlc so soon after a release...dlc is usually released to either, boost faltering sales or retain interest in an already popular title at a much later time...correct me if I'm wrong

if and only if ... "ghost of the precursors" was on the market for purchase, no holds bared, except for the the name "star control". then yes, live and let live.

ive had to back track all the fan made versions and remakes of starflight over the years...ive been out of the loop. i had no idea that an attempt was made at creating a sequel. ive had so many good memories of staying up late playing starflight and star control 1 on the sega genesis. i was 17 and it was the summer of 91. takes me back, im 44 now kids, wife, work...just seems like those golden days of innocence and wonder are all in the past. i do hope this gets made as well the gotp...they've been on my bucket list for so long.

is it me... but the more Elestan fleshed out his arguments...the more frogboy and svs seemed agitated, like it was hitting more closer to home than either one wanted to lead on...but thats just me inferring text into feeling...hmmm.

they should just make the game anyways...make all their glorious plans within the game...give all the races, places generic names...release modding tools...let the modders fill in the correct names...problem solved...maybe.

on the belief that when you bought "star control"  that you acquired everything within the name as well...and that therein lies the problem...

When we acquired the trademark we...acquired the trademark.   I'm not sure what you are getting at.
i believe your company was misled into thinking you bought everything star control related...names...places...characters...story...ui...themes...sounds...impressions

when in fact all you bought was the the name "star control" ... just the name...nothing else.

ive tried different methods of switching os only to realize 2 things about them...
windows is a glorified game launcher
linux is a glorified browser launcher

in a dual boot setup where i work and browse in linux and game in windows...i find that if i need to look up some gaming related question while gaming i have to shut down my game...boot into linux...browse, find my answer...shut down linux boot into windows...continue gaming...not practical to me.

software solutions ie virtualization don't cut it either ... cant game in a vr windows ... and browsing and working is just easier on windows itself.
now a hardware solution might be were its at...if we could get motherboards that would or could switch between an os as easy as i switch between tasks in windows that would work.

to put it simply...windows plays ALL the games...if any other OS did that id change but they dont, so i dont.
