    Here, finally, is a game that makes me wish I gamed on PC.

    Can't embed the vids, but they are here:

    Really, nothing? Seriously, take the time to read the article, and with that in mind, watch the second video knowing that none of that is a cut scene.

    So much promise. So many ways for it to shit the bed. Would enjoy it turning out well. Bummer I've no plans to upgrade my PC to anywhere near what's needed to run it.

    With that small change, my thoughts exactly. Looks amazing.

    Hated Wing Commander but fucking loved Freelancer, hopefully Robert's executes the open universe sandbox properly.

    Here's the longer pitch video with gameplay footage of the pilot walking around the command carrier and jumping into his fighter craft...so cool.

    I loved that Chris Roberts is playing with an Xbox360 joypad so hopefully the final game wont have an overcomplicated 90+ button control scheme like the X series which I despised.

    Apparently he's playing this on a laptop with a GTX 670 GPU so when this comes out in 2 years(more likely 3 or 4) the specs should be more than reasonably to get it to run at a decent framerate. As it's being developed on CryEngine3 it should also be easy to highly optimize it for lower end cards.

    You can do pretty much everything in X except type text input (useful on universe map and a few other places) with arrow keys or joystick hat, escape, and enter. The keyboard shortcuts are almost entirely optional, but helpful.

    Sounds like a next-gen X, moreso than the upcoming Rebirth (which I am not pleased with the direction of).

    Freelancer was fucking incredible, I cannot wait for this. Looks like I'm going to be building a new PC in 2014.

    I'll be doing the same, but 2013, so I have a new business expense to write off.

    This is the last big push for the Kickstarter!
    There are only 2 stretch goals to go. This game is going to be epic and huge!

    Progress? Where?
    Most of their deadlines and milestones have been thrown out, modular development has been scrapped mid-stream for a giant one-shot build, Illfonic was scrapped, the Retcule for the fps mode wasn't working, so that's been moved back (in an fps engine, no less), money is being burned, and the Cult has moved into full-fledged Pyramid Scheme mode with the referral program.
    Chris Roberts was Blackballed from Hollywood, so now he's creating a 10+ hour cutscene with a clunky generic space game wrapper with A-List celebs, and his coattail-riding wife/not wife/wife.
