@runcrash: I've always wanted to play it, but I already have EM and all the X games so I'm pretty set on space sims. Thanks though.

@crusader8463: Thanks, I'll give their forums a go. I did try learning through Youtube videos, but every video I watched wasn't really a tutorial on how to play as much as it was a tutorial for seasoned veterans of the franchise.

@crusader8463: I agree that I need to hold off and just continue playing Evochron Mercenary off and on. I can wait for X-Rebirth and Star Citizen. And I own all the X games, I just could never dig deep into what the games have to offer, plus it doesn't help that I never really have the time to learn the mechanics. I may still give Albion Prelude another go, but I don't expect it to grab a hold of me like EM has. Any suggestions on guides that might help me with x3: AP?

@Funkydupe: Thanks! Just got done looking at Star Citizen, and it looks pretty awesome. I'll continue to follow until it releases. X-Rebirth I've known about, but hadn't done any research into it. I've played a little of X3 Albion Prelude, and though I do like complex games, it just seemed way out of my league, but Rebirth seems to have many of the components I desire, so even if it still sports a steep learning curve I'll give it a go and hope for the best. Thanks again.

I honestly didn't know where to ask this question where a lot of people might know the answer.

I really like the game Evochron Mercenary, but the more I play, the more I wish it had further depth in gameplay. I love the fact that you can land on planets, that inertia plays a key role in space travel, and that there's a pretty good amount of things to do within the game...though I haven't loaded the game up since 2.0 hit, but will eventually tonight. What I do find lacking, and has been something I've always wanted in a space sim game, is the ability to move around within your ship while traveling in deep space. I guess kind of like Mass Effect, though I'd love some RPG elements to play a role, like upgrading certain portions of the ship, while also being able to hire a staff of people for certain jobs.

I'm hoping 0x10c turns out to be something similar to what I've stated above, but having no idea when that'll be finished I still ask. Does anyone know if a game like that exists? Or if one is being developed?

Nevermind...I literally found the key seconds after hitting the post button. I haven't a clue how I missed something that was staring me in the face.

Been playing Dust: AET for a good bit, got to the last portion of the story where they basically tell you to finish all quests before continuing, and decided to clean up all undiscovered locations. Got pretty much everything at 100%, even the 12 characters, but I seem to be missing one treasure in Blackmoor Mountains, in the same area you find Fez. I've looked all over the Internet for help, but can't find anything. Am I missing something? Is the treasure in the same world you find Fez? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

To anyone reading this. Though I don't have any experience with repair service sites, except Sony, I've come to the conclusion that gophermods is one of the cheapest while being the most reliable, from several forums I've searched. I on the other hand will eventually get this PS3 fixed, have decided to get a brand new PS3 and just dust off the ole PS2.

I just got off the phone with Sony. I had my console serviced back in August, and today my blu ray drive stopped working completely, and according to Sony my warranty expired a week or two ago. Needless to say, I won't be using them again for repairs. So, does anyone have any experience with repair sites? Any sites someone could recommend? Just in case anyone needs to know, my PS3 is the old 60GB launch console.

I kept my finger crossed, after reading this thread. I had ordered this game, and had a little trouble with Amazon in that they screwed up my order slip and FedEx couldn't delivery the game. Sadly, I'm having the same issue with the game freezing. Played the game for about 8 hours so far, not nonstop, but in 2-3 hour intervals and already I've had the game freeze on me four times. The weird thing is, I've never really had any issues with Lego games before, so I'm hoping this is a bug that the developer is working on. Anyone know if they know about it?

As far as the game goes, I'm loving it. I actually thing this game is probably the best Lego game to date, my opinion of course.
