Giant Bomb's new year resolution? NEVER LET ME SLEEP.

Posted by MetalBaofu

I remember playing so much of this on Playstation(the game is still over on my shelf). Don't think I ever did finish it. I might be wrong on that, though. Been so long I can't really be sure if I finished it or not.

I used to play the PS1 version of this game all the time. Looking forward to watching this.

this is quite unexpected... and quite amazing. :D

I played the PlayStation version of this and man, did I play it a LOT. I think that game came on four CD's or something crazy like that. Played the SNES Wing Commander a bunch too. Was always a big fan of Maniac.

These guys are name dropping fucking Herman's Head but they almost don't recognize the guy from Lost.

X-Wing was absurdly hard. At least it was when I was a kid. I beat my head against that game for a long time before giving up. My CH Flightstick wasn't enough. Man, that was a great joystick.

Brad on RPG?


Posted by EnduranceFun

Vin radar!

Posted by eloj

Brad goes "Paul Steed worked on this?!" at the same time that I'm going "Barry Leitch worked on this as Spaceflight Dialogue Editor?!"
Look it up, kids.

Posted by freakin9

The game is all, "we worked on these cutscenes, you're watching them even if you hate the gameplay!"

Posted by TatsurouXIII

12 minute intro. True old school :)

Yep, installing Freespace Open right now.

@eloj: That's not so unusual. He's a freelance sound guy as well as a composer.

Posted by KestrelPi

1:28 Actually, the dialogue choices can affect some stuff that happens in the game - there are a couple of branching moments, and I have a feeling how much pilots like you affects stuff like whether they're likely to follow orders in space and stuff. Nothing crazy, but still, nice little touches.

Posted by RetroVirus

They're right, this totally is like Mass Effect.

Posted by Chris_Ihao

Great game. Played with a sidewinder back in the days. Still got a crush on all those... actresses.

Posted by PulledaBrad
Yep Dave,ya nailed it. Same exact guy.

I think you mean the Selkath from KOTOR sound like the cat people (kilrathi)

Posted by KestrelPi

They ought to take a look at Wing Commander IV. The quality of the FMV was a lot better, they had a budget for building full sets and despite the Kilrathi taking a backseat, it actually had a much better quality of story over all. The gameplay was... well, about the same, but I seem to remember enjoying the missions a little more, too.

Posted by Mihos

I played the hell out of the old wing commander games.

Edited by Brackynews

It would be incredible if you could patch the game text to put NAMASTE! instead of VAGABOND. Halliwax wouldn't be a bad flight handle either.

@nate6858: Pfffh. Nice toy son. ;) I had the FCS.Back before Thrustmaster turned into Madcatz.

Damn!... Giantbomb has been on FIRE lately

Nice sweet Freaks & Geeks reference there Dave. That show is amazing, shame it was way ahead of its time. It's been playing on my local cable lately. It's awesome to see it on TV as opposed to torrents

Edited by Froghourt

Did anyone else go on GOG to buy this, after like, 15 minutes?
