@thiago123: In fairness, Gene Roddenberry was sort of a huge pain in the ass when it came to developing the Star Trek canon. He consistently held writers back.
There's nothing wrong with liking only TNG. Just own that you pretty much only like TNG.
DS9 sucked if you never watched past the first two-three seasons. Which of course they never really did. Almost everytime they mention something Trek-related it's always from TNG. I believe Ryan also argued with Dave at one point that continuity isn't what he wants in Star Trek at all, which is classic I Liked It Better When It Sucked.
(Also, that's kind of what Brad does. During the Super Mario All-Stars QL he at least twice talks something up to the others before mentioning he never actually had experience with it in the first place.)
Years later, I applaud your persistence in telling people that they are enjoying things wrong. Did you let Gene Roddenberry's family know that he was also not a real Star Trek fan for not establishing more continuity in original Trek?
These videos are really hard to watch.
Dudes, that's Naomi Wildman from Voyager. I thought you guys knew your trek. JK
I like the retard voices being made when they enter rooms.
"Get off my ass, probe!"
" U.S.S Steakhouse? Satonaka? That person is the greatest person of all the timez. "Thanks.
U.S.S Steakhouse? Satonaka?
That person is the greatest person of all the timez.
That was me, haha. I was also trying to get to the klingon world in time before the beta ended, but I never noticed the Duder was RIGHT BEHIND ME :(
" Hahaha Captain Satonaka of the USS Steakhouse "
these have been just terrific :)
"Haha hell yeah
Oscar Mike is Oscar Mike. I'm pretty sure, at this point, that a good portion of the STO userbase is Giant Bomb.
I'm surprised Brad's the one that picked up on the Satonaka reference...
Yo That was star base 24 in the serrius system where vulcan is at.. not DS K7 I started later then brad and made it to level 10 I'm L.t. commander and I also got two sets the duel wield hand phasres guns . yeah that's righ two sets two sets.
" Think I saw at the first of K7 where someone was using one of the fire extinguisher items found on one quest where after dealing with a few enemy troops I had to save the scientists with futuristic fire extinguisher putting out the fires all around them. In the ship customization or the character sheet for the ship you can rename it as well as renumber it. Liked in STO that there are some merchant ships you can buy things from instead of escorting them, hoping this stays in the retail game as it's better than running to vendor to buy something. Agreed with everyone in this QL, once I got the cruiser I had a turret in the back as well as rear photon launcher & helped out tons in battle. Only fast travel I saw was in the powers list that had a transwarp to the starbase, aside from that Jeff seems to be right in flying lots in the warp space. "
"NICE!! My ship is the U.S.S Satonaka and one of my Engineers kinda resembles Chie, at least until tonight when wipe everything. As been said, nothing stops the Endurance Run! Surprised I haven't seen the U.S.S Persona and it's away (investigation) team, yet.
" @Romination said:True. T. Nag is the PC editor though. Tyler Wilde grew up playing PC games for a while and Charlie loves adventure games, but i don't think it goes much further" oh, hey, the USS Talk Radar. Just saying that's a fan of the site, not GamesRadar itself (as they hate PC games) "GamesRadar has some people that like the PC, Tyler Nagata comes to mind. "
This looks really fun, but I don't have time for MMOs.
" Where's Cpt Amagi of the USS Uncontrollable Giggles? "More importantly, where is Funky Captain of the USS Mysterious Fox?
I love the slow burn. I game I can't play being played.
i got own by the Klingon(player) and borg at this map
You have to rank up to Lt. Commander (Rank 11 I believe) before you can get one of the bigger ships.
Sometimes it's like:
Captain Ryan Davis gives the orders,
First Officer Gerstmann provides the strategy and insight,
Lieutenant Shoemaker drives the ship.
I wish you guys would do more, say, after the beta! After all, Brad and Ryan will have their lifetime subscriptions too!
Dude. you are level 5 in an MMO, dont expect to be able to buy ship parts/gear and/or win a battleground.
Its actually kinda refreshing to see a person such as brad whos playing this game like it were a casual RPG. Dude. its an MMO. Give it another 150 hours and check back on those ship parts.
I always thought stars were just planets/suns/galaxies way off in the distance, but apparently in star trek you can drive right by them and they are just small bright specs
These STO quicklooks aren't as fun when Ryan is backseat driving the whole time.
All it does is expose how f'ing slow Brad is. Atleast with Vinny and Dave we are distracted from the plodding pace.
If you look in the chat box someone said:
"It's the duder! That totally made my day. :)"
The Giant Bomb team; making people happy, one beta at a time.
Deep space 9 tomorrow.
I can barely hear them. I almost always have to put headphones on just to hear them.
Dammit, Brad is so easily distracted, it's so annoying. :D
I noticed Seaman has his skills spread pretty much even across all skills, is this the right way? I've been just dumping to energy weapons for space and turents for ground. BTW, I'm an engineer.
Also, give the Seaman two weapons one with an AOE stun and a sniper. Then when about to take on a non-warrior or non-brute e.g. a swordman you can attempt to stun him till that spinning red circle shows up, then pop him with the sniper shot, easy kill. No need to take down the shields and armor.
Effing N.Wildman from Voyager!? Janeway better be in there somewhere.
Gotta represent the TalkRadar. It is my 2nd favorite podcast! Behind the bombcast of course.
Where's Cpt Amagi of the USS Uncontrollable Giggles?
You guys should do this for every big MMO beta.
Borg cube is bigger than its shields. how silly.
Ahh, Jeff's slow descent into madness.
" You can tell the Giantbomb crew is loosing interest because the videos are getting shorter. "Yep Jeff buys a lifetime sub and Brad even says he wants to keep playing after the beta even though he seems to rush through things and try and avoid combat now. lolwat
yes!! star trek is poisoned by persona 4
