I've got it. Simple, elegant, perfectly descriptive:

NSC = New Star Control

With a name like that, I'll totally be expecting polygonal graphics in a 2.5D engine, Mega Shiva Furnaces that let you slag planets, Mini Planet Landers that allow you to go through tiny wormholes, and a super annoying Ur-Quan kid who wants to help his father kidnap Talana.

This is obviously some kind of reference that's gone right over me head. Anyone care to fill me in?

I guess I could deal with SC2+1. Certainly gets the point across.

My suggestion for refering to it until a real name is released, would be "SC2+1".

That's a little long, and it assumes that the next game will be a sequel, but given that you have the power to ban anyone who doesn't use it, we should probably just go with that.

NSC = New Star Control

I think SCN would have been acceptable for me, if not for the fact that the crowd is using SC2+1 now, and I'm a weak minded bastard. Plus, SCN sounds familiar, though I can't quite place it.


Actually, I'll probably just refer to it as SCX, SCN or SC1+2 at random to confuse the hell out of people, because I'm also a sadistic bastard.

Can't help you there, but my guess is the title might be of japanese origin, and probably a console game of some sort.

Maybe, just maybe, we should think how to reawaken all those SC2 fans out there that now nothing of this news instead of discussting how it should be called. Just a thought.

English ref; handheld game.  Nintendo released "New Super Mario Bros" a few months ago, an SMB game that runs in 2.5D and is like a semi-evolved version of the original sidescrollers.  I was joking about Mega Mushrooms, Mini Mushrooms, and Bowser Jr. basically; the word "New" in the name set me off and I couldn't past it.  Tongue

It is certainly well past midnight, April 18th, and a lot of people have replied since then. I am unsure as to why you felt compelled to answer a question that no longer makes sense from 6 months ago. Care to enlighten me?

*is not Zebranky food*

I've signed the petition and I'm now crossing my fingers. Stumbling on this website and was hitting two birds with one stone—I rediscovered a childhood favorite and heard of news of a real SC sequel hitting shelves (though the news is, well, months old).

Greetings to all my fellow SC-lovers.  Grin

Quote from: Alex Ness
The hope is that after we finish our current project, Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam, we can propose doing a Star Control sequel next.

Now that they have finished Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam, I think it's time we send him a large cluster of e-mails saying that it's most definitely time for a new Star Control game.  We have been persistent and strong about a new Star Control for so long now, that Activision cannot ignore us any longer.

If you have an idea how to go about doing that, I'm all ears(eyes?).

There's a bunch of ways, write letters to video game shows, send an instant message to your friends about Star Control, convince them to write at least one e-mail to Alex Ness...

I might know some I could talk to about it. It's worth a shot.

I'm going to sign the petition, but I'm going to send it through the mail for a stronger effect.

Btw, I'm looking for some human opponents to play super melee net /w hamachi.
