  1. Wing Commander: Privateer was great. Righteous Fire was awesome. Now I'm in (Privateer 2) The Darkening. It's... I still can't even describe it. All I can currently say, is that it's even better.
  2. Play Civ 2, and when you're done with scientific research victory, you can play its sequel Alpha Centauri, also one of the best games ever made.
  3. When I had the Galaxy: But, I like the Centurion a lot more
  4. Oh my... When I look back to these (which aren't even a week old, lol) I can't stop pacepalming about mistakes I made... I have sold my Orion which served me well and was fun to play although a bit rough, and bought a Galaxy. I could have stood the speed, the guns limitation, even try to test playing turrets. But not the coc kpit view. The manual says that it's on par with the Centurion's and better than the Orion's. Seriously? I'd take the Orion's 10 times! Sure with two turrets, you can see much of the field, but I hate switching to turrets. So I only made missions with the Galaxy to hav
  5. I know it should have been detailed maps for Wing Commander Privateer for, well... literally decades, since the game is around 25 years old, but charting the quadrants and systems all by myself is part of the fun of the game. I haven't done a single mission for a while, only to travel point by point, system by system, and charting all little by little. The following table and map are obviously incomplete (blue bold lines have been traveled while the black thin ones aren't) And I still haven't started the main story, I believe...
  6. Wing Commander Privateer So, after buying an Orion and doing several missions given by the computer (just the classic ones, like I did since the beginning: scouting, attacking pirates/retros/kilrathis and defending stations, always in the Troy system), I finally decided to take a great step: to start exploring, and why not make some money of it? So I contracted both the Merchants' and the Mercenaries' Guilds in Helen to take only bounty missions. So, pirates, retros and kilrathis to hunt in the Troy, Pender's Star, Regallis and War systems. Here we go! The patrol in Troy is fair simp
  7. Still playing Wing Commander: Privateer, sold the old Tarsus (which was upgraded to max of her potential - with the exception of the Shield Generator that stayed at level 1 to keep full maneuverability, and with two Tachyon Cannons which have the best characteristics - Velocity, Delay, Energy Use, Armor Penetration - for low level engines). I bought an Orion (I want to try each ship, one after another), and while she's interesting, I still don't get used to use the turret. And I have to admit, I am still reluctant to let the Troy system behind, so to say, really beginning to play the game
  8. With all new space games, is it insane to play this?
  9. Got my CE signed edition and in France too, and the statue is broken in multiple parts... Maybe it would have be prevented if the package had the mention "FRAGILE".
  10. I have currently only one in mind, since there are a lot of already released games that I have yet to have and play. Powerslave/Exhumed EX, if Nightdive is still planning to make it. It's not really a new game per se, and I already have its original PC and Saturn versions of course, but after the Turok series re-releases, I'd love to see Exhumed in the lights again. To me, still one of the most underrated FPS.
  11. I played the old Shining force... Man..that was good . And never heard of a 3rd !! But if it was on Saturn , then yeah . I did own a Saturn back then (and still, because it remains one of my favorite systems), but I have waited for SFIII for too long, rumors were insistant about the project of a new Shining Force on Saturn, since 1995. When Shining Wisdom came, it wasn't bad (at least not as bad as many said) but not a 'Force. And when Shining the Holy Ark released, another nice game (very good in fact), but still not a 'Force... After 2 years, the wait was a bit tiring. The
  12. It would have been a nice thing for its 30 years release. Missed for 2 years. "C&C for the next generation" We're leaving them worse things than a polluted world, apparently. I suppose they will succeed to make C&C4 being a game which seems retrospectively "good" now. Just like the Star Wars movies.
