  1. Pfft....they're letting just ANYONE in now I see. ;)
  2. Hi all, I would like to take this opportunity to suggest a new game for Gopher (or someone) to potentially stream. The space-sim has long been thought dead. We all remember X-Wing, but the game(s) that made their mark in this genre is Conflict/Descent Freespace: The Great War and Freespace 2. The first game had an amazing storyline that pulls you in and sets the background for both games. Utilising sharp piloting reflexes, dogfighting combat experience and combining that with a tactical knowledge of ship functions, maintenance and engineering the player is thrown into the midst of one of the best space sims ever made. Since 1998/1999 however Volition, the company behind both games has long since expired, and the games no longer function on Windows Vista/7/8 using the native retail launcher. However a group of dedicated gamers have not only created a new launcher, but they've also improved the engine and added a full compliment of high resolution textures, all free to download. To add to this there are a slew of mods you can implement using this new launcher. Ultimately I know a game of this type may not be everyone's cup of tea, but the space sim has been away a long time and I for one was never a big fan either till these games arrived on the scene. I sincerely hope Gopher (or somebody) downloads, installs and streams this. Very enjoyable game indeed.
