    That's pretty nice looking. What graphics settings were you running? I'm looking for a great space game myself.

    Eve .. idk.. It feels like a job sometimes and it's like owned by veterans. Trying to actually own a section of space, is just like trying, to run a real life corporation. There is tons of administration, to be done.. Maybe if I didn't work, 6-7 days a week..lol. I did enjoy it though for it's part.. Maybe I'll give it another go, when my 680 shows up, next week. :) I'd love to max it out.. It is by far the most gorgeous space game, I've seen. If you meet good people with coms, it can make the game for you.. But there are a lot of cutthroats in EVE. A lot of back stabbers.. Be careful..

    The people in that game, that just kill, everything that moves, indiscriminately, hurt it imo.. I'd get it, if it were small bands, but it's not. It's like half of everyone in the game, automatically becomes some kind of pirate, killing and podding everyone... It's not enough u got the wreckage? You have to pod them to? It's just like the people in call of duty, who squat on your face. It lacks honor...
    Yes I know it's ranked which just proves the point. If you pod people and your only concern in a game, is your rank. Where is your honor? Is the price of your honor, the rank on some web page, that amounts to nothing?
    It just bugs me I guess, to know the person I just dealt with, had such little courtesy, for another human being.

    In real life, most of them, would not do that.. So it kind of unbalances the idea, of a realistic universe.

    Also Sins of a solar empire Rebellion, is coming out soon. Looks really nice, from what I've seen.

    all MMO are like that.

    it's a never ending grind fest with little to no narrative. kids are far worse with keyboards than microphones.

    Starlight: Inception did make it on Kickstarter. Looks to be promising. They call it "the rebellious stepchild of Wing Commander, X-wing and Freespace2, taking a fresh approach to the classic space combat genre."

    I wanted to like that so much, it seemed like an updated Elite, but I looked at the graphics and stayed away.

    Everyone check out ArmorCritical.com it's a very simple great 2d space shooter, a lot of fun, action, strategy, play against other players, easy to learn, but offers a whole lot of depth.

    This is a novelty phrase that goes around for those who havent played, or played very little.

    Sounds funny I guess.

    Most people who hate on EvE either never played it or never gave it a chance when they played it. Find a large new player friendly corp that will show you the ropes and find your niche. The game offers everything short of being a shooter, and even now theirs a free ps3 game (http://www.dust514.com/) that will be linked to the pc game and allow corps to capture planets.

    Eve is hands down the best MMO I have ever played in my life.
    There is simply nothing else that even comes close to the depth of the game.
    It's just not for the feint of heart or people who view loss as a detriment instead of a renewed challenge.
    Maybe it's just me, but I would rather lose a $100M ship in an ambush than fight Pandas.
    INSTG8R and AlienIsGOD say thanks.

    When I tried to register "Depth" was already taken, but I didn't know he was THAT good

    *sigh*

    Anyone that played Nexus : Jupiter might be interested to see this Kickstarter. I never actually saw the first one. Going to check out the info on it this weekend...

    Not an mmo but mindless fun, Galaxy on Fire 2.
    One of those cheap indie titles which have been released on Android, Mac and PC.

    And we're up and running at Roberts.
    http://starcitizen.robertsspaceindustries.com/

    Those of you looking for a return to the Space games of Wing Commander, Freelancer, and the likes, check it out! He's doing his own crowdfunding effort, and apparently, overloaded his servers as they went offline for a while due to load. Lookin' sharp ;)

    After looking at the video I can understand why.
    Plus there is going to be the older group keeping an eye on this game due to Wing Commander.

    Nexus 2 is looking like it's not going to make it... Kinda stinks, but maybe the Roberts Space Industries thing will make up for it. Still, I'm looking for a steal on Nexus:Jupiter (It's at 10 on GOG and Steam right now). If anyone happens to spot it on sale, mind tossing me a note? Thanks :):toast:

    X3 is kinda advanced, its pretty in-depth gameplay, but once you understand it all its a pretty kickass universe! offline play btw
