lol I want a star trek game where capt. picard is bi-curious
Birth of the Federation! Awesome.
thats because star trek sucks
Elite Force was pretty good, I never got hold of no.2 though.
I thought that was great and elite force.
I dont get Joe, he doesnt seem to like many games at all and the podcasts confirms it even more. He seems to only like some obscure game that we have never heard of, and I think thats because he just wants to be different.
I picked up ST Away Team for 2 quid or so in a local indy game shop- it's like Commandos except much easier and action-y (so far)
Birth of the Fed. i still play that to this DAY shame about the memory bug mind
Starfleet Academy was also good fun, Klingon Acadamy was a good one too. But why oh why were they all buggy
Star Fleet command 3 and Armarda 2 are installed at the moment and i prefer Armarda
Not at all. I like tonnes of games, though perhaps not the ones which everyone likes (like diablo 3), but I just tend to talk most about the games I'm properly passionate about - Baldur's Gate, PlaneScape Torment, Deus Ex, Prince of Persia etc. There a lots of games I like, which is why even my trimmed down collection at my new flat has 100+ games in it.
i played a decent star trek board game once much along the same vein as atmosphere
I loved Starfleet Academy. Actually, I was hoping ST:Online would expand on SF:A's independent bridge stations for coop play, but it looks like they've totally gone the whole arcade/casual route. :/
Elite Force is definitely worth a look. Iir, they released an expansion which added decks to Voyager which you could explore.
Anybody played the delta force extreme 2 ???
I was/am really excited about the new Star Trek MMO, but from what I've seen lately... It's not looking so great. I guess I'll just have to wait and see once it's released. I'm not even a big MMO fan because most of them don't interest me. Star Wars Republic on the other hand looks awesome.
I look forward to what you unveil next in "what games I own" then
Well, any particular games you want to hear about, just let me know.
They should so release the source code for Birth of the Federation - I'm sure there are some people willing to fix the game up good and proper and fix the bugs.
Klingon Academy was good, especially the mission builder and 3rd party mods. BOF was a great game too, as has already been mentioned.
I'd love another good ship-to-ship combat game, along the lines of KA, but more sophisticated.
I'm quite surprised that no one has mentioned Deep Space Nine: The Fallen. It was not only one of the best Star Trek games, it was one of the best of any games at the time. Built on the Unreal Engine, it was the first game to use facial animation that coincided with speech. The player alternated playing as Capt. Sisko, Worf, and Major Kira. Excellent game!
I have to second DyreStrait's claim. But I admit, I'm biased. I'm one of the level designers for DS9 The Fallen. It was a poorly promoted but excellent game, IMHO. A great storyline. Wonderful 3rd person perspective and animations that let you enjoy seeing as well as controlling your character, and 3 converging story arcs as seen from each of the 3 player characters you chose. It was very true to the Trek universe, but was fast paced and filled with action. I enjoyed working on the game so much, that I spent nearly 3 years producing an unofficial sequel, named the same as my username here. It is definitely worth a look if you haven't played it. (Both the original, and the sequel).
Uh, hello? What about ST: 25th Anniversary? That was a Star Trek game, and that was awesome.
And ST: Bridge Commander was awesome provided you installed a load of 3rd party mods, as the vanilla game was pretty poor.
Starfleet Command, SFC2, SFC3
Are you on that rainy little island? Was SFC not released there?
It was the best starship combat simulator made.
Only EVE has surpassed the starship combat and that is an MMO, a different animal.
I am wondering how far back your PC gaming experience goes back because Bridge commander was pretty decent and as mentioned above ST 25th was good as well.
Hoping that STO will be Plasma,
