    So this is what Chris Roberts, the creator of Wing Commander, has been working on. I haven't actually played Wing Commander or Freelancer, since they were before my time, but I have played Starlancer, and I have tremendous appreciation for space sims in general. This looks extremely promising, to the point that some day I just might get around to getting a computer capable of handling modern games like this. I seriously love this trailer, the declaration that such games aren't dead was excellent.

    Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

    That looks absolutely awesome. Checking out the website now...

    Freelancer is one of my favorite games of all time. Sold.

    There's one more day of the Aurora sale for any interested.

    Hangar module will be releasing in August (walk around/in your ships!) This will end up being the equivalent of player housing in the full game.

    Towards December, they're planning on releasing a limited alpha module: 1v1 dogfights!

    Be excited.

    I'm kind of debating whether I want the Aurora or not. I've already pledged for the 300i, but a ship that you can "live" in as well as fly would be nice too.

    I currently have an Aurora LX and Hornet, hoping for Hornet upgrades during Friday's 24 live stream (for the launch of the new website.) I may end up also grabbing a Freelancer before the November cutoff for original backers.


    There's a new trailer for the 300 series from Origin. Great video, and solid looking ships (though I prefer the more rugged looking RSI and Anvil based ships myself.)

    I didn't contribute to the Kickstarter because I didn't have a gaming rig at the time, but now I do and I wish I did.

    You can still pledge on their website. I believe you may still get access to certain kickstarter benefits if you do within the grace period of their livestream (which is Friday...so maybe up to a week after that? might be worth reading up on if you're still interested.)

    It's not too late. You can still pledge on www.robertsspaceindustries.com and reserve a spot in the alpha and beta(as well as whichever ship you pledge for).

    This one seems very promising, I'll be sure to check it out when it comes out.

    This looks like it has great potential. Can't believe I wasn't aware of this game until now. Will be tracking the progress of this one.

    Now if they'll just give us a new X-wing and/or TIE fighter game, that'd be damn awesome.

    So much great info throughout the livestream so far, all the main pieces are on the new website, but asdflkajsd;flasdfa;fd

    I don't know how I'm supposed to last until the game comes out.

    I've been following the news somewhat, and the designs look excellent, but haven't gotten around to signing up yet. Earlier someone mentioned now would be a good time to sign up? Never tried signing up for a game this early before, but it really does look very good. Oh well, guess I can always wait until the game comes out too if it slips my mind again.
