X is back :D

Rebirth is leaking news weekly now. With the release date about 45 days away and closing I think this may be the go to game for people waiting for Star Citizen.

Typical of the X world this is a single player only game.

For anyone that has never encountered the X universe here's a quick rundown for you.

X is a German made persistent universe. Designed to model a real economy to a reasonable level. Unlike an MMO your not going to spend 3 days a week mining. You employ people to do that for you as you create your mega corporation... If that's the path you want to take. You could equally run freight, Do missions, Rat pirates, Or go on epic space ship stealing binges. The ultimate goal is always the same. Do what you want.

The scale of the X universe is where it get interesting. They tend to be 50+ star systems, multiple races, and more often than not you'll end up dominating some of those races to fund your war effort in another part of the universe.

You can fly your ships, Twitch style, Captain style, or General style. Commanding a vast fleet, a single ship, or a network of trade lanes profiting from NPC based demands.



Out on the 15th of November this is going to be a title to watch. (19th if your not in Europe).

I'll pass my own judgement on the new developments when the game hits. I love the X games. And have reinstalled X2 in anticipation of this one.

We have a lot of dark nights ahead this winter, And If I can spend a few of them breaking this game Elder Scrolls style then that's money well spent for me :D

The biggest problem with X3 was the lack of multithreading. As long as they fix that in Rebirth, I'll be happy.

I bought it, being a big x3 fan.. and.. meh... Rebirth is an understatement.. The graphics looks like shit, it's a mix of cell shading and smudges (hard to explain.)

Gameplay wise, the campaign is broken and linear. Freeplay throws you into the world with what seem to be random missions.. but they're of the, go here and kill 10 of these, variety..

What I loved about X3 was capturing ships and pretty much setting up my own pirate squadron in a system. This seems to be completely gone.. Or atleast not as easily accesible.

Ok.. Who bought this? I love X series...but I am seeing a lot of negatives on Steam forums and Metacritic and other reviews. Anyone provide details that purchased it? Worth $50 or wait until it goes on sale?

Most certainly not worth $50... I got it and kinda regret it..

A few patches from now it should be a servicable space game.. not an X esque game but some new dumbed down wannabe X game

Game isn't too bad. Reminds me a lot of X3 when X3 was released so far. With the ability to buy ships/stations there seems to be plenty to do. Of course, it will all expand just like X3 did.

that. also lots of bugs, crashes, no auto save, horrible gui. in a few months, a few patches later, and with good discount this could be interesting though

I was looking forward to an improved X3....they sure hyped it up enough. But I cautiously checked out player reviews before buying. I'm glad I did. I'll wait for the patches and a lower price. Ah well, I've got enough other stuff to play for now.

I played this earlier at a friends place and I'm suprised, it really feels like an beta, Its pretty sad, I just stopped playing after a while(mainly because it crashed and I gave up).

The sections where you walk around the ship and hangars, I think the game could do without them entirely and the graphics are bad when you are walking around hangars or whatnot but its not that bad seeing as your supposed to be flying the ship most of the time but the character models are pretty bad though, when I first saw the chick in the beginning after she docks its . . . . . . . bad:ohwell: other than that the artstyle, I don't like it it really is a slightly slightly cell shaded look(I hate cell shading), and the voice acting on the main character is not that bad, but for pretty much most of the others its . . . . . so so at best

hopefully it will get fixed because right now its a mess:shadedshu

even if it was fixed I still don't see a 50 dollar price tag here though.

I've been toughing it out thru free play.. and theirs definitely a decent space sim here. The problem is X3 is the better game, both graphically and gameplay wise.

So if theirs any good to come from this it's that I'm currently reinstalling x3 on steam..

O and my favorite part

I'm iffy about it.. x3 was awesome.. but if you read the actual dev diaries this game is exactly what it's called.. a rebirth... with some hugeeeeeeeee changes to how the game is played.
TOLD YA SO :D
