    Anyone remember this game?

    Played that to the death (and Freelancer) so I never got around to play Freespace 2 more than a few times at mates. Guess it hasn't aged well though.
    You really should have played Freespace 2 instead. Far superior to either IMO.
    A million times this.

    Tachyon was a really good game, and had 128 man MP long before large-scale MP was the norm, still very few games have it. And the flight model was really fun =)

    It's not too late if you missed them the first time.

    If you can't handle older games with graphics that suck by today's standards than maybe give them a miss tho.

    I dunno, I replayed Freespace 2 a few years ago and it has aged reasonably well.

    I remember thinking that the freespace graphics were absolutely epic...

    Technology is weird.

    Why not just go for full on free to play, then? With the mega successes of F2P games these days, it seems shortsighted for CCP to settle for $20 plus "nickel and dime" microtransactions.

    If Valkyrie requires the Rift to play, then the game might have too much of a niche market to succeed as F2P.

    Why does CCP use Lander like a cheap whore?

    All you need is fs2. With that you can get fs1 and silent threat reborn which have much improved graphics and effects

    That would be utterly retarded.

    Freespace 2 has aged very well. Particularly if you grab the updated version of the engine and the higher quality assets.

    I think you misunderstood. The idea that Unifex was working on Valkyrie came from his tweet which said "Everyone who played it wanted it to become a real game. Well, we're working on it." Some people must have interpreted the "we're" to mean "me and my team" as opposed to CCP in general.

    As to whoring him out - as far as I can tell every dev with a Twitter account tweeted or retweeted about the Valkyrie announcement that day, not just Unifex.

    He said in another tweet he was involved

    Getting FS2 Open : http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index...lling_fs2_open

    FS2 Open is an opensource version of the old FS2 but with a huge amount of improvement, a lot of it graphics-wise.
    There are also quite a lot of good campaigns for it:
    - FSPORT: The entire freespace 1 campaign)
    - Derelict: Years after the freespace 1 campaign you encounter an abandoned lucifer-class vessel in subspace. It is recovered and stuff happens.
    - SOL A history: Multiple chapters about the life after the Sol Node collapses. See technology progress and politics intertwine.
    - Blue Planet: Never tried it but it is claimed as the best campaign ever made.

    Those are all 3rd party campaigns based in the FreeSpace universe. There are also plenty of total conversion mods like Wing Commander Saga, The Babylon Project (B5), and Diaspora (BSG).

    I like single player because I can play without having someone else wanting to match schedules or some crap. Imagine having to attend CTAs in valk.

    I just think valk would have boring and repetitive missions that you can memorize or document the order of ships to die first and get bored with rather fast.
    PvE seems to be CCP's weak point across all of its games - EVE pve is bland and repetitive with just the text agents, no voice-overs in the missions or plexes, just text boxes. Imagine if you had to turn on sound to hear the warning about a random reinforcement wave.

    Dust has no pve to speak of, and it sometimes hurts the game, not to mention no background story for the people in dust who haven't played EVE.

    So if CCP plans to make valk anything with replayability value outside of any dogfighting of player vs player, they need some creativity and innovation to freshen up their pve game.
