Star Trek Online Digital Deluxe Edition $5.00 @ Amazon

#1 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -

so, i just purchased STO DD from amazon for $5 and i was wondering if the Space Neon Lobster fleet was still around? 
 
also if anyone else want's to finally pick this up and join in on my really bad holiday decision, here is the link 
 
for $5 i think it's worth it to mess around for a month, last time i touched this game was during the beta

the collectors box is/was like $8 or something ridiculous a week ago and i picked it up so I'd be in.

Wow, i bought the collectors edition a few weeks ago for $10.  I played it for a bit but cancelled my sub before the 30 days ran out. 
 
I'm curious if anyone else from the SNL fleet is still playing aswell.

My general philosophy is that the quality of the game is reflected by how fast and how steep the price drops are. Something tells me that there's something wrong about Star Trek Online.

got a nice xmas present from cryptic, after i downloaded the game from amazon today, i logged in with the account i was using during the beta (at the time i was doing preview coverage) and lo and behold my account is still a press account with full access. so i don't even have to pay to play, did not have to add acredit card or anything and i have access to a bunch off stuff they are selling in the c-store(just claimed basically everything out of the c-store as a free item)...anyway, i started playing today and it's still STO, so if there are any SNL's out there in sector space, i am the large breasted , pink haired female borg captain Kari Moon, flying around in the USS Evil Dead, i hink my char info is kari@Groovy_Gamer  and yes i am a dude but the MMO rule applies here, if i have to stare at a screen for several hours looking at the same char, it;s going to be a pink haired borg female with a nice ass 
 
cheers

Its not great, but getting better. 
 
Moral of the story being that atari, as is typical, rushed a product that really needed another year of development. 
 
As it stands the patches since launch have made improvements, and more are on the way. Ground combat is being reworked, they are introducing player created content, and they have been doing 'featured' episodes that have been quite entertaining. This isn't a perfect game by far, but at least it is improving over time, including a recent overhaul of sector space with more work on it being talked about. At 2.50 for basic and 5.00 for deluxe, you can effectively get 60 days of play for 7.50 (the 30 day trial with each edition stack), and at that price you'll more then get your moneys worth out of it.

@evildeadron The fleet has seen better days that's for sure. I can invite you if you want, but sadly 99% of fleet members no longer play the game.

I'm tempted to get the Collectors Edition from amazon if only for the sick Communicator Badge. Then if the game goes free to play I'll have made out like a bandit. But if not, I'll at least have a sick communicator badge.

Funny, I had just wrote about how this is one of my top disappointing games of the year.  The space battles were fun, though I felt that so much of the game was limited... they could have done more, could have done better.  Ah well.
