[PaperRockShotgun] Eyegasm! 5 Minutes Of Gorgeous X-Rebirth Footage - Page 4

post #31 of 53
This game will probably not be for everybody as it's a space sim. A pretty hardcore space sim, nothing like freelancer where you can grow and get pretty powerful quickly. In this game, things take time, lot's of time, also lot's of strategy and planning. If you're not up to it, then you will fail and not like the game.

Excellent. Competition for Star Citizen. This makes me very happy and gives me more than enough justification for a good HOTUS setup. biggrin.gif

mmm.... Looks good. Very want.

Hopefully between Star Citizen and X-Rebirth there'll be a big enough renewing of the Space Combat Sim genre that what's left of Volition in THQ will decide it's a good time to make FreeSpace 3.


Yes, I'm still delusional hopeful... DONT JUDGE ME tongue.gif

So to me they are already BS'ing us...what else aren't they telling us?

Unless of course I'm wrong...which I hope I am...but I know I'm not.

Either way, as long as it isn't as technical and complicating as the X games before it I'm down. It isn't that I find X games too hard...I just like to save WORK for 9AM-5AM...not have to work when I get home as well. tongue.gif

They are not going to dumb the game down and piss off their fan base, and the features they are building in require complexity, check out XTM, scripters have already made the economy of X3TC remarkably interdependent. Fan mods actually made the game much more deep and complex. I wouldn't worry about the graphics too much for the interiors yet, As long as it is easily mod-able someone will improve them. Of course you can acquire other ships, transporter, get out and board, buy em be a pirate this isn't a shooter or action game its a sandbox space sim.

If they change the game into a gamepad space shooter, the X series will be dead.

IDK, I expressly remember seeing a gamepad on that vid! tongue.gif

Seriously though, I've been looking and watching this. I've never tried any of the "X series" but I've played the fringe games like wing commander, freelancer .. etc and I personally like sandbox games ala Rollorcoaster tycoon so I'm intrested at least.

Hope it has 3rd person view because i can't stand cockpit modes. Great for immersion, terrible for FoV visibility/awareness.

Yeah the complexity of this game is kind of intimidating. I have a feeling it will be too much for me. Games like this have ALWAYS made my brain melt. Which usually ends in me uninstalling it and never looking back. I am really, really, really going to try to wrap my head around this one though. Wish my poor brain good luck... lol

+1

I like the immersion but FOV is just as important to me as well.

You can own other ships but you can't pilot them yourself, only give them commands. The only ships you can control are the Albion Skunk (playership, as shown in the vid) and various types of drones that can be launched from the Albion Skunk.
