Actually, and I only say this because it's not a bump as this thread was already at the top, but if the current controversy around Diablo 3, that being that the "community" thinks the game is too bright and colorful and they want it to be toned down, darkened, and only use shades of brown, if they get their way then I say don't bother making a new Star Control. Star Control 3 was washed out enough to make me think if they do that again I'm not going to bother with it.

Bump.

Guesst, there's a huge difference between a Diablo game and a Star Control game...

Guesst, it's not the same thing at all. While Star Control 1 and 2 are colorful and have a somewhat whimsical look, Diablo 1 and 2 look pretty dark and gritty. I've hardly seen anything on Diablo 3, but if people think it looks too bright, it's probably because that's a departure for the series.

Let's just hope they don't cut down on the clicking, that'd be a real departure from tradition.

Hahaha... Those puppet things can never replace the colorful and pixelated graphics from Star Control 1 and 2.

I have nothing against Diablo III.  It's a beautiful looking game, and I won't stop hacking, slashing and casting spells just because to make it a little different.  It's Diablo III, not Diablo II 3D!

The world needs a new Star Control from the masters who made the first 2 masterpieces: Toys for Bob!  No matter how powerful the hardware is or how much money was spent on it, it's the quality that matters in the end.  I've never heard anyone review Haze and said "The gameplay sucks, dialog sucks, AI sucks... uh... But I like it because it's a FPS and a lot of money is spent on it!"

Star Control will remind everyone that "following the formula" isn't the only way to be successful in the gaming industry.  Science Fiction is not dead!

I duuno, I'm not averse to the idea of using puppets per se. Just ugly ones with really washed out colours. That was always one of the odd things in SC3, how do you get from the bright cartoony feeling of SC2 to that grim bleak future?

It's a risk/reward thing. Because games cost an insane amount of money to produce nowadays, no one wants to risk an expensive flop. The same thing goes for movies as well. Sure, there'll be some odballs out there every now and then, and some really successful new ones from proven makers. But mostly it's the same old same old.

Which is why we not only need a new SC game, but a Sci-FI TV-series, a musical (on ice) and a comic book. And possibly coffee mugs.  Oh, and a card game. It's annoying, because if someone had the money and time this concept couldStar Control will remind everyone that "following the formula" isn't the only way to be successful in the gaming industry generate millions.

Hello!

My name is Lukipela, and I intend to bump this thread for two reasons. Both are fairly long and interesting. They provide the sort of content that ensures that quality threads stay open.

1) It is a nice way for forumites to show their support for a new SC sequel. Despite the fact  that the thread in itself does nothing to increase the chances for a SC sequel, it may well help create awareness of the issue. And as we all know, awareness is the first step on the road to recognition, which at some point in time may well lead to aforementioned sequel. Surely this can't be a bad thing? After all, awareness is the mother of necessity. In short, having a thread like this may remind people of other issues which may help, such as signing the petiion and sending in their pictures. These are important issues, and any extra attention these worthy causes garner is well deserved, even if the price is a little meaninglessness. Isn't that a price we should be ready to pay? For the children? It also helps build a community feeling, and aids us in warming to each other and putting aside our differences. It makes more alike and less alone in a cold harsh world. Don't deny us that comfort. I feel that all such attempts should not only be valued, but encoruaged. In many ways the UQM is a cold and clinical forum, where people may feel that they lack the familiarity and comfort they require to start up new topics and open themselves up. this is a unique chance for the UQM forum to become a more open, and warmer place. A happy place.

2) In this thread, much as in many other threads, interest is in the eye of the beholder. Instead of asking "Is this interesting to me?", you should be asking yourself "Is this interesting to us? For are do we not all, in our own wonderful way, define what we find interesting? Surely the eagerness of your fellow forumites in this thread, compared to their lackluster performance in other recent threads, must give you an inkling of how fascinating we find this subject, and how interesting we feel that it is? Ask not what your forum can do to interest you, ask what you can do to interest your forum. All we are asking for is a chance to blossom into the beautiful flowers we are, the radiating dandelions of joy we could become. To be treated equally. As Shiver so eloquently puts it "How can you say that?".

Doing my humble best to show that "interesting", and "good" need not be connected at all.

To keep the thread interesting, there appears to be a lot of definitions for golf clap  (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=golf%20clap) that I wasn't aware of. I assume you were using definition two from that list, which is the reasonable and expected reply to drivel. I sincerely hope you weren't thinking of definition four or onwards, because... ew.

We're supposed to include discussion or content of some sort in our posts from here on out says the Meep. For instance, if I was desperate to keep this topic from falling off the first page of Starbase Cafe, I would respond to Lukipela's confusion over what a golf clap is.

BUMPBUMPBUMPBUMPBUMP!!!!!!

Okay, Hi guys, I'm Vol, you can call me Vol (You gonna call me Vol?) . I'm gonna be honest - I was actually playing SC(Not)3 recently, and I've gotta say, I agree, that...notquel...has the same syndrome that Diablo III was having a while back. Whereas SC1 was bright, colorful and...um...rotary...and SC2 was...bright...colorful...deep, exciting...and an all around beautiful game, SC(Not)3 just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. It really does. I mean, it's like you were in the world of Dr. Who and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy crossed with Star Trek to the Nth Degree and then all of the sudden you get whisked away into the bleak future of Battlestar Galactica meets Warhammer 40k. (Don't get me wrong, I love both of those, but if you slap a Star Control title on it to try and make me happy, I'll smack you and tell you to go back into the kitchen and get me the grapes I asked for. No, the ones in the drawer. The one on the bottom. No I don't want THAT cluster, it's nasty and...yeah...anyways...) But from a budding student of Game Design, I fully endorse a new Star Control game. Come on ,Activision, Paul and Fred already cleaned their rooms, walked the Dnyarri, and ate their Supox, what else could you want?

A guarantee of profitability. Hence why they wind up making licensed games all the time.

Hopefully their newest project will turn out to be as exciting as we all hope.
