They want it to be a lawless space area with dangerous aliens and pirate rape but at the same time want the law to be so oppressive that they mercilessly deal with people who pvp. Ok then.

So they can live out their Malcolm Reynolds fantasies without people ruining their immersion, I would guess.

Their sense of entitlement can be measured by the amount of money they put into this ridiculous experience in the first place

^This. Elite at least tries to get it right with the glowing heat vents, but realistically all space ships should have huge heat radiator surfaces that fold out when the weapons are fired.

Vents so hot you can't crawl through them? No thanks. :colbert:

It's a portmanteau of "Star Empire", I think made by european people for whom english is not a first language, I think for some other game. And yes I know it should still be stempire, I didn't make the dang word.



Also, paging that poster with the velma avatar that comes up every time portmanteau is mentioned in this thread.

See I honestly thought it had something to do with stimming, but I actually hadn't thought too hard about it.

I agree with this, also given the lengths Dickwulf, Dolvak, the guy in the wheelchair, the mental expert & Karl have gone to in an attempt to gently caress with Derek, just because they don't like his opinions. I'd really think twice about drawing too much attention to yourself, these people are not mentally stable and the fact that chances are, we'll be laughing at them even harder in 6 months isn't going to help.

exactly why I nominate Eonwe to talk about anime - none of them merit or warrant any serious discussion.

Security in the UK studio is surprisingly lax. I just dressed up as a guy not carrying a camera, and I was able to walk right past Sandi like I wasn't even there. I got to glance at a couple of pages of the SQ42 script, reproduced here for your convenience.


MARK HAMILL: Where is Bishop?

JOHN RHYS-DAVIES: They have him, in the belly of that steel beast.

MARK HAMILL: He's captured! We'll have to break him out - I'll ram the ship with these sword attachments on my wings!

MARK STRONG: A sword. How human...

MARK HAMILL: At least I have an idea, I don't hear any of your plans. Is anyone here to help me or just give me a rash of poo poo?

GILLIAN ANDERSON: Why did they assign me to you in the first place, Old Man? To debunk your work, to rein you in, to shut you down...

MARK HAMILL: That's not helping. OK lock s-foils in attack position...we will have victory!

ANDY SERKIS: And take it for MMEEEE!!!

MARK HAMILL: For us, you mean. Victory for all of us.

ANDY SERKIS: Yes, we... we meant for us.

MARK HAMILL: OK we're getting in range. Let's do this carefully - Bishop is getting up there in years now, we don't know how much he can take. Does anyone know how old he is, anyway?

LIAN CUNNINGHAM: Sixty-seven, and when he dies, who's in command? A half-grown boy, the product of incest?

MARK HAMILL: Whoa, whoa, where the gently caress did that come from? Remind me never to discuss politics with you.

SANDI GARDINER: Look at me! Look at me!

MARK HAMILL: OK who brought this bitch along? She keeps getting in front of my ship and obstructing my view of the target.

SANDI GARDINER: I'm one of the world's best fighter pilots without a shadow of a doubt and always have been since I was a very small girl...

MARK HAMILL: No reward is worth this...

I call bullshit, the real script would have everyone asking where she was if she wasn't on screen. :colbert:

I had literally never heard of this game at all until, I think, last month. It's the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen - I literally can't comprehend donating tens of thousands of dollars for a ship that they just want to simulate the mundane. It breaks my brain every time I try to make sense of it.

Everyone ask them this coming week, what is the next major feature we can expect to see in the game. If it's not an outright scam, and they have the very barest level of competency, you should get some kind of answer.

Playing the game this weekend until yesterday when I got bored, I had a vision. Somebody should kickstart a demolition derby in space game.

As long as it involves a space bulldozer pushing wreckage into space, I'll back it

Is it possible that Sandi lies pathologically about her past because she's a recently constructed robot with poo poo-poor AI and they didn't think to include a feasible backstory?
