Reason # 1,234,543 that Dave is awesome:
"will Brad..... alt+tab to the desktop!?"
Watching Brad play anything is usually pretty hilarious. Hearing him get frustrated enough to swear which he never seems to do was pretty good, too:)
The game does look a lot better than I had expected, as well. Kinda does make me want to play it.. I'm always just so weary of taking on an MMO.. it's too much.
Aw man, now I regret missing the beta key thing... This looks good for an MMO.
The interior parts of this game really remind me of KOTOR.
So guys.... it's been two days and still no part 4. What's up with that?
You've got a computer still running the Windows 7 beta?
" Number 3 is the first video for star trek online I've seen so far. I'm also highly critical of games. ( the reason I like giantbomb, they are too) Brad really let me down on this one. When his science officer glitched out the entire mission on terrible pathing, he just ignored it and it cost him the mission. Not even the way points he set for his away team would get her un-stuck from the glitch. This is something I would expect giantbomb to point out for the fans and it's pretty sad they did not. The next time I watch a video on giantbomb I'll have to think to myself.... "did they ignore that bug on purpose because they got paid to?" "
Damn those space battles are epic
The Star Trek setting and pure comedy works well together.
Release might only be a few weeks away but this is still deep in the throws of beta and these kind of bugs are really to be expected. We'll see them weeks into launch too. Cryptic are trying to do something original with the away team members and if it comes off it will make this game much more accessible to non-hardcore gamers when it comes to instances and the like.
It's the beauty of MMO games where this kind of thing will only get better as the game gets older.
Brad tabbed out, and when I saw the fish I laughed: hard
As to transwarp beaming: It never occurred to Scotty to consider space as the thing that was moving.
I've been playing the beta for a few days and I gotta say Brad is terrible at this game. He goes into battle at full impulse which leaves your ship drained of power so you're pretty much shooting blanks and not regenerating shields.
"have to kill. ALL THAT STUFF!"
Why can i see my best friend @Newten saying that?! x3!
these video features are so great. Vinny's constant humming of the Star Trek theme cracks me up!
also, "brad didn't die, amazing." ROFL
" also, "brad didn't die, amazing." ROFL "haha yeah that was pretty great.
Glad to hear some love for Freespace.
It really irritates me that alot of GB (usually just Brad, Ryan, and Jeff) constantly talk up their affection or knowledge for Star Trek, as if they're such great fans, but their appreciation of Star Trek doesn't go beyond a handful of the movies and TNG. They're not Star Trek fans, they're just TNG fans.
