Vager made me laugh at the end. This looks really good for an MMO.
That epic battle sold me. I want this game.
Good to see its up again. I also finally got around to start downloading the Beta but its slooooow.
I'm loving these videos, which is weird since I'm not really into MMOs or Star Trek. The space battles are awesome though, especially when you have backup. And I really hope someone is writing down all this Frigth back story that Dave and Vinny are coming up with. Combine it all at the end of this series and you'll have the best bio ever.
Wow this game has me thinking of Anarchy Online......sad i know
yeah i wish this was a real single player game, it looks fun (maybe still add in some online "let your buddies on your away team action") but i will NOT pay $60 + $15 a month for it.... Why isnt there a good star trek game out there like this for consoles? Such an easy idea, all the ideas and back story are already out there for developers.... such a rich IP with built in fans..... yet we just get star trek D-A-C filth.....
" I'd be so much more excited about this game if it wasn't an MMO, I'd love to play a good single player role playing Star Trek game. "
I'm enjoying it greatly. Tricorder emote wins. >_>
Brad: "So i dont wanna put points into my character?" Vinnie: "no you did fine when you were on foot." Ummmm no, he died and failed the mission, but he did fine by respawning and running I guess hahahaha....
That was a great episode. Also the game is pretty fun. Maybe I'll even buy a lifetime membership if it turns out well.
I kinda want to play KOTOR now.
Protip: Right click both the laser icons so they have a green border and you only have to press them once and they will auto attack the target.
Where is Sulu is the most common chat message in this game!
I would play this for the space battles alone. That looked like a lot of fun!
The later game clan based PvP deep space battles must be amazing.
During that last fight Brad was mostly just flying around not shooting anybody. Probebly because he didn't have anyone selected. BTW, anyone else had server connect problems? After I played for about 2h whout any problems it suddenly started kicking me of the server all the time(4 times in 10min or so) saying shit like Server is Not Responding. Well, it is a beta after all.
I feel like this could be the next endurance run, I really do.
Fleet Space Neon Lobsters, nice.
Damn I wish I'd gotten one of those codes! This looks like so much fun.
that was awesome! great final battle. brad... good job. :)
Anybody know what the computer's specs were that this game was played on at giant bomb? I got a quad core with a 8800GT (at 1920x1200) and i don't think mine runs quite as smooth.
Can't wait to see the next one. I keep playing along with the videos, either a few quests ahead or behind.
Dudes need to turn up the volume on your recordings, I can barely hear you speak.

45:15 LECHUCK JOINS SPACE NEON LOBSTERS!!!
I thought the game was hard so I hoped to get some tips from here, but I'm sad to say Brad plays even worse than I do. How do they expect someone to be able to fight 20 battleships alone (that happened to me once).
So far this game looks pretty damn good. I might have to fork over another $200 for a permanent account.
Vager's comment at the end was epic.
UGGGH i just preordered this on steam.................................. so much for revision. btw my middle name is definatly gonna be Tunoku
FOR THE HORDE!!!!!! Wrong game........
I love this series. It's a rollercoaster of emotion - from Brad driving way too fast, to watching comrades die before your glassy fish-like eyes. Such beautiful despair.
Brad isn't good at games. But I still love him.
After spending some time with this game, it seems pretty alright. My only complaints are the ship controls are really wonky. The ship combat looks awesome but actual firing your weapons and trying to maneuver is really tough. The ground combat is much better if a tad simple. But that's probably because I only have a couple skills so far. On the contrary though, all the menus and stats are extremely complicated and seem very inaccessible. Most of time in Star Trek Online was similar to all my time with Eve Online where I'm just saying "WHAT DOES ANY OF THIS MEAN?!" Obviously, this is something that will get better with time but one of the most important things about MMOs, as World of Warcraft has proven, is accessibility and I feel that STO might alienate some people. Overall, though, I'm liking it. The shooting feels fun, especially for a MMO. And its got a very action-y feel which is especially welcome with MMOs. Cryptic also did a great job of nailing the Star Trek vibe. I doubt I'll be playing after the beta but for a game that I thought looked real bad, it was a pleasant surprise.

" @Mjolnir: There are currently 3477 keys remaining for this giveaway. There're still plenty of keys floating around if you want in, brethren. "
The main thing that is wrong with this game is I have no idea what in the hell leveling up does, I don't know where to focus my skill points it is really confusing, not as bad as Eve though Jesus that game makes me cringe and its not from a lack of playing games nothing makes any sense!
