Some how I had missed this, I had only read things saying Stardock was planning to do it.


Teaser trailer is too damn short!


“Star Control: Origins is a sci-fi action/adventure game with many RPG elements set in the future where the player is the captain of Earth’s first interstellar starship that explores a procedurally created galaxy, makes contact with various alien races, explores unique worlds, and engages in action packed battles, all while trying to unravel the complex intrigue that has the galaxy on the brink of chaos.”

Might have to preorder from Stardock so I can get me some early access.

Played SC 1 - 3
1 on Genesis I sucked at it
2 on 3DO was like the Golden Age of SC for me.
3 on PC it was like well okay... but it aint no SC2!

Heres hoping Origins doesn't disappoint.

I wonder if any familiar species will appear.

I used to play this game, a fighting game. It was wild. I won the majority of time but for the life of me I don't remember the name of it. It was the most fun i'd had since, chocolate and # whatever at that time.

That looks pretty awesome. I was always somewhat disappointed that I never got into the Star Control games, I heard a lot of good things about them but I never got a hold of a copy... I've been debating on getting the star control collection from GOG for quite a while but never pulled the trigger.

I think i'm going to have to make sure I check this out when it comes out, sorta reminds me of a mixture of FTL and cosmonautica.

ugh, double post. Hate it when I click the "reply" button and it does nothing, then, thinking I maybe just didn't click in the right spot click it again to see two damn posts.

This is off topic, but is Stellaris any bit like a Star Trek game, or how the diplomacy and warfare could be imagined into a game? I'm not actually a fan of Star Trek, watched 3 or 4 episodes, but the idea has stuck with me. Or do you think this will be more similar?

I want to play a fighting game, they're so much fun.

I could kick all of you guys' asses, maybe not jin though that could be a challenge.

I loved SC 2 back in the day... till I ran out of fuel, no credits to buy any from the melnorme and every time I'd leave hyperspace I'd be attacked... finding cheats with a dial up modem on BBS's was interesting lol

Wonder if my crappy pc will handle this :/

Back then it was a 486dx2 lol.. DOS 6.22, running at a whopping 66mhz with 16mb ram, a superVGA card and a sound blaster pro! Oh and a 17 inch CRT monitor. Well back then it was the cat's meow.


More recently an ancient q6600 quadcore in 3DO, but since my video card died and I'm stuck with the onboard GPU and lets just say, well Call of Duty at 640x480 beats a slideshow. Pixels, Pixels everywhere... Oo

I have only ever had PCs, after my Sharp MZ-700 and Commodore 64 days... Oh I did own a dreamcast once. Rayman infuriated me though and anything but a keyboard and mouse leave me too unco...

I am about 290 years old by the way... oO


And to think... I grew up on games like this too... not much has changed graphic wise when you're forced to use onboard gpu lmao

I had a 10mb hdd too.. but it was second hand and I had to run debug and initial a low level format...

G=C800:5

59 hours later and so many bad blocks marked unusable, I had decent storage and it sure beat having to format 900 floppies when copying games lol

Ohh then I eventually sourced an scsi controller and 2 250mb hard drives. And a cd-rom that had a caddy, had to manually insert the caddy with the disc in the slot. lol.

I miss those days...

I'm probably just slightly younger than you guys, I got into computers when I was about 10, playing 80's adventure games on old computers. Striving to play decent games on crappy old PC hardware throughout my childhood and teen years is probably what got me into IT in the first place.
