In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

God, this game is why I have a gaming PC. Holy shit, those graphics. Holy shit, realistic physics. Damn, this game had better not suck.

The Dev is Chris Roberts, who created Wing Commander and Freelancer. How have I not heard about this game before, especially with the money it's been raising?

Isn't Space Citizen a mission to mission space game like Free Space?

No, I don't believe so. The optional introductory campaign operates that way, but once you transition to the full game, it's completely open in the vein of freelancer.

It's looking to be a mixture of Eve Online and Freelancer, with the shit parts of both removed.
Basically, it's looking like it's getting ALL OF MY MONEY.

Next time i get some money in, imma buy one of the packs that come with alpha+beta access.

So very, very keen. Why isn't it late 2014 yet?

Pretty much my reaction when I saw the trailer on Kotaku while I was at work. Oh Jesus does it look awesome.

Yeah, I watched that the other day. A complicated, realistic economy, which I won't complain about. Fortunately, that's one of the parts of Eve that doesn't suck.

I just hope they avoid the Excel Spreadsheet vs. Excel Spreadsheet nature of Eve's combat (at least, that's how I view it).

This is supposedly the hanger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ReiSJ3PZKs&feature=player_embedded

I really want this game though it's sounding a lot like a MMO style game.
