Elite 4 was well worth the 10 years he said he'd been working on it.

He mentions it on the kickstarter, it's always been going as a back burner project but they could never properly focus on it due to other commitments.

Hopefully it won't turn out to be spreadsheets in space like X3.

Exactly. I love me some Frontier, but I'm not backing this. No prototype, vague ideas. What's the point?

Just play this instead, works a treat:

It's got over £300k of its target in the first day, not bad.

New video which contains a mixture of footage captured from in the game, but also some post processing and the cockpit is a mock-up.

Check out my new gaming blog Player State. Updated every Wednesday.

Real look of Galactica footage to some of that.

Keep on keeping on fellas. Looks good.

That looks awful with lots of makeup on it to cover up.

Yeah, space-shooters should look stunning just because there's no ground geometry to render, that looked about 10 years old. I think a modern smartphone would have been capable of playing something that looked like that.

Also, why would a cruiser whose main anti-ship armament seems to be turret mounted pull up alongside an enemy whose main attack is a broadside?

Galactica you say?

Freespace 2 how i miss thee...


Born out of the 'Beyond the Red LIne' mod for the aforementioned, still being worked on ( their forums detail things) but a functioning build is up for download.
