A BSG game.... SO SAY WE ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just finished watching the series for the third time I think i'm gonna give this a go. :)
The beta has been available since Feb 8th, if you haven't tried it, and you like BSG or space pvp/mmo's/fighters, then check it out. Don't think that a browser based game can't be better then eve, freelancer, xseries or any other space titles, cause in my opinion, it is better. This game focuses on pvp strongly, and epic descent size battles. This game is in beta, but is solid none the less. Completely free, with the option to buy cubits, which you can use in game to purchase "anything". The grind is slow, but if you do the dailies, kill npc's/stations, and get with fleets to destroy OP's and take sectors, you will level up fine. Great graphics and controls, I'm actually flying my ship with realistic ship like maneuvers, unlike freelancer and especially eve. Don't get me wrong, I like freelancer and eve, but I like this better.
Search for "Diaspora" a freeware Battlestar Galactica game made by fans and volunteers. It is a first person flying sim, where you get to pilot both Vipers and Raptors. It is currently in development stage, but it is still better looking than anything available on the market right now.
The trailer was actually decent. Not low budget knock off or anything. Soundtrack, the camera style, pretty cool. The game footage is not going to be that, of course, but at this point I'm looking forward to anything bsg.
Looks "intriguing" but I wonder how it will fare as a web browser game, hopefully well. But I'll see in open beta
human, not that i will play this game, but i have always played humans in almost every game ever, this will be no different...
love the show, shame they didn't make a single player game as I generally can't be bothered playing MMO's. If there is a free trial I will give it a whirl though, just on the back of how much I like the show.
Bigpoint announed a few month ago that this game will be a browser-based MMO RPG. So a lot of people are going to be disapointed... it's not going to be even close to StarTrek Online or even Eve Online... Bigpoint lacks a lot of visibility on all it's browser games. This one only get's visibility and marketing attention because it's based to a Hit TV show. I don't think I'll play this one even if I am a fan of the show...
@big-boss-91 Yeah I agree with you.. I tend to like single player games better than MMO's. Anyway, loved the show, though I have to admit I'm a bit skeptical about this... I'll definitely try it though.
considering how many people are on STO, and how much I like it personally, saying it will "bomb just like" is a pretty strong statement it will be very good.
if this is an RPG, i have a hard time understanding how you can level up in this game. They used pistols very rarely except on ground campaigns. Everything else was done via space flight. IDK it looks like Star Treck without the novelty.
How can you say this looks horrible......It's a decent CGI space battle. The actual game is going to be browser based so you can imagine it'll be pretty basic, lite fare. Probably nothing to get worked up about either way....
Super exciting! I'd play just to hear the soundtrack in action. :D Registered for the newsletter at http://battlestar-galactica.bigpoint.com/
the show was brilliant, if not the best show ever on TV, but the trailer does look fantastic, Although i firmly stand that BSG series should only be a single player game playing out the missions, Online version will just die under the WOW shadow
