Ugh... it is a good thing I don't have Ryan's pessimistic ass sitting next to me while I play games.

Off to Cardasia to eat some filthy egg thing similar to balut....

Why is the bridge so damn big?!

Edited by fox01313

Agreed with my medium interest with tactical skills from what I've seen in STO, the grenades seem okay but I found that the engineer kits giving you mines/shield generators in part10 that appear to work in the combat a little more effectively. You can get the ships from the upper level of the Sol station in shipyard but might not be able to buy them though they might have released the restrictions to show off the better ships.
 
Guessing the bridge option is like the houses in the MMO Runes of Magic where you can invite ppl to see your gear, crew or trade things.

I hope we get an epilogue episode!

Ryan, stop being mean to Brad and bossing him around! It's funny as all hell, though.

Posted by KrazyMiller

Now i wanna buy this game lol

Posted by MachoFantastico

Bossy Ryan was superb, Brad was being classic Brad and everything was great,  
 
Wonderful stuff guys, and yes DS9 did kind of suck.

I WANT THIS AS A SINGLE PLAYER GAME!  i want to own a disc, even the $300 lifetime thing would be tempting if i knew I could own this and play it even if the servers go down someday (which who can say what life expectancy this will have?) But for $60-$80 (DLC) I would gladly buy this.... But to drop $300 now only to find i might get bored with it... Its too risky. So please license holders, we need a good console star trek game (or PC just make it a single player disc).

Dance party is awesome.

40:45 would have made the most perfect ending to Phasers. Thank you guys for all the great videos! Warp out!

ryan get so pissed lol but hes often wrong love it
Posted by MeatSim

Space Neon Lobster dance party was the best part.

 STO actually looks interesting. I may have to upgrade my pc though.  I don't get the DS9 hate, that series was awesome.

You have no idea how close I came to renaming it the U.S.S. Young Mother.
 
Thanks for the video content guys, I wouldn't have given the game a second glance without it.
Posted by punkxblaze

Oh man. The guys acapellaing the star trek credits at the end there. Beautiful.

Posted by Inquisitor

This thing doesnt convince me at all, its the usual time sink with diminishing returns
 
I dont understand all the hype; if you simply like the Star Trek flair you're better off rewatching the series, or playing the single player games, heck, even Starfleet Command (1999) or Elite Force (2000) had more fun in it than this bland MMO trying to be both of these and achieving none. But have it your way :) 
 
The concept is awesome (just play the two above mentioned games and think to make an MMO out of both), but the execution is just mediocre, game mechanics wise, this is a poor man's EVE online.

Thanks for these videos, I laughed so hard when I saw my USS Steakhouse featured in yesterday's video, also trying to get into the klingon world before the beta ended. Never noticed that the Duder was RIGHT BEHIND ME the whole time! :(

"Oh :( "

@Inquisitor: I appreciate what you're saying but NO ONE has seen much late-game content so who knows what'll happen? I'm fine with paying a subscription for a while and see if it gets awesome. It's fun now, at any rate.
Posted by Inquisitor

Also, even if the game turns out to give me a bit of a "meh" vibe, i LOVED this feature, more like this please! 
 
One ounce of constructive criticism though, if i may: i know its all fun and games but try to be a bit more laid back and behave more maturely, the constant bickering and name calling between Ryan and Brad starts to go on everyone's nerves.

After watching this series plus having played a few hours on a friend's beta-account, I broke down and preordered. Look, it better be good! :)

Posted by Neuromancer81

Ahh and there he goes out into the stars, our brave Seabiscuit. Frigth Tunoku Babby will live on in our hearts. I have watched all of the videos and really enjoyed watching Brad and Jeff fight with the bugs, unintuitive menu system and Brad's refusal to read any text whatsoever. 
 
It remains to be seen whether Star Trek Online will have the momentum to become a fraction as popular as WOW but from watching these videos I really want to try it out for myself.  Hopefully I will get the chance to try it  and maybe even see a USS Duder out there pulling a Brad.

Posted by Tipio

I bought a lifetime subscription.  I have a feeling this game is gonna soar.

Posted by Toxin066

Greatest ending ever.

Posted by eduardo

Do you keep your beta character if you commit to buying the actual game subscription?

I am completely on Dave's side when it comes to Deep Space Nine. 
 
Although I grew up watching the original series - and it is my most beloved, I thought that Deep Space Nine was the best, when it comes to writing. 
 
Like probably all of us, who are not die-hard Trekkies, I have to re-evaluate my memory by watching all the Star Trek again ... or maybe not, cuz it would take years?

Edited by PLWolf

Amazon has a deal where you get the standard version for $47, $10off your next video game purchase, early access to the game 1/29, and a Borg Bridge Officer. I think this is the way to go.

Is that DAVE?!?

I had my volume all turned up and my mom came in to my room and told me to shut the hell up when they started singing at the end.
 
This was one of the best things ever on Giantbomb, but it did not convince me to buy the game. We have to keep in mind that flying through space for 2 minutes and doing nothing is going to be a lot less fun without 2 people talking to us the whole time.

How does this differ from PSN Home?

I use the time to type something on fleet chat, the space combat is a little too intense to really not have your hand mashing the arrow keys, number keys, the 'e' key and both mouse buttons at the same time. It looks slow, but in my experience the griffons in WoW are a lot worse, you appreciate the breather here.
 
Plus, the first time you enter a sector Leonard Nemoy speaks inside your mind.

The end-of-beta event was a spawn-campers dream, I must say.

GB should do this all the time. Pick some mmo, play it everyday on air for like an hour and make it another endurance run. You know we're not watching this for the gameplay, we're watching for the commentary.

Am I the only one who is turned off by the way planetary systems are displayed like bad 3rd grade astronomy models.

Fuck you asswhipes.  
 
Except the last few seasons DS9 was fucking awesome.

Posted by TheClap

Best ending ever

Posted by Nictel

Now I need to watch this in the future and scream.

Posted by matti00

It is infuriating to watch someone else play an MMO, but I've strangely enjoyed this.

Posted by D_O_A

Awesome as always guys, although i skipped a little of the DS9 spoiler sections as i am watching the series for the first time now, (only up to season 3)

Posted by Baal_Sagoth

Set Phasers to Fun has been great! All the episodes were definitely very entertainig & I hope you guys maybe continue this with the full game. Or just do something similar for a different game. Anyway, fantastic STO coverage!

Posted by Gildermershina
@Ragdrazi: Yeah, but the last season is really great I thought. It kind of dips through 6 but kicks up again in 7.
Posted by CharAznable

So rad, great sendoff to this miniseries. This just reminds me of how badly I want another full-blown Endurance Run.

Edited by zenith16
@trophyhunter: I'm down with doing tthe agency when it comes out. 
 I think it's too late for that global agenda game demo wise so you'll just have to look at the game . not sure what to do with it other wise.
Posted by Jimbo7676

You guys are awesome.
