    Not a chance of that ever happening on a console. I-war 2 was better though. And Elite 2.

    And fundamentally really only is about flying in 3d space... then that's not so impossible to imagine as a console-title.. right?

    ..maybe we'll see a Gundam game before that. lol..
    Heh, good point. Why'd they never make a Gundam game for the PS2 or anything?

    Anyway. This is just extremely entertaining. You three just behave /exactly/ like a typical publisher, or any reviewer at IGN.

    "So wouldn't a Tie-fighter game be cool? -YES, WE HAVE BATTLE OF NABOOO COMING OUT NOW AND IT LOOKS AWESOME!!...".
    or
    "What if the interest in space-shooters and aliens could be a cue to release a new Xcom game? - WHY, YES XCOM THE FIRST PERSON SHOOTER WILL COME OUT NEXT YEAR AND IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME, JUST LIKE YOU REMEMBER XCOM, EXCEPT ADAPTED FOR MODERN AUDIENCES!!!".

    You're exactly like that. No wonder the EG staff are buddies with you.

    I ask this question far too often but...are you retarded? Maybe just a little bit?

    I think he's replying here to comments made in another forum, it's the only possible explanation.

    Watch out, he's from Norway. He'll go on a killing spree to teach us MS fanboys a lesson.

    What's even more funny than his batshit ramblings is how he has us all pegged utterly wrong. Not funny haha, mind.

    Odds on the PS3 being this chaps' first ever gaming machine?

    This thread made sense a few pages ago.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Topical: Lutz's gamepad control scheme for TIE Fighter (also scroll down a bit for additional madness).

    Mobile Suit Gundam: Encounters In Space says hi from space. http://ps2.ign.com/articles/457/457531p1.html

    While flying through the atmosphere? I'm not sure what you mean - technically, all of the planet-bound ones had Gundams "flying through the atmosphere". If you mean flying from space, down through the atmosphere, to arrive ground-level on a planet... which games let you do that? I don't think I've seen that feature since Damocles.

    Plenty of good and bad stuff from the far east, still, it never makes it over here and when it does they either repackage for kids or add swearing and repackage for teen/adults.

    While this is no doubt fascinating and the urge to point out the dozens of space sims that you've neglected to mention in your "only games that do this" tirade is overwhelming, I'm struggling to see any point in this.

    I've just been helping out by fixing nipsen's mistakes and providing information for which he asks. :/ The last request was "...a Gundam game. While flying in space...". Oh, but he meant a "space-sim". Silly me, my fault, and I do apologise for being so stupid as to only provide what he asked for.

    I'd honestly stop fulfilling his requests and clarifying his untruths if his responses weren't comedy gold. For example: "towards the end there Kirk beats Khan by "geniously" breaking away from imagining space as a x-y plane..."
    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=geniously

    Yup, he's a genious alright. The only thread relevance I've sucked out of his last half-dozen posts is that he'd prefer a new X-Wing/TIE Fighter game to eschew the 2D plane.

    Ooh, I've never seen a publisher claim this. Would you mind sharing your source?

    But I don't really think that you're representative.

    Looking at the Gears of War sales figures, I really don't think so.

    Yes, thank you, princess, for stating the obvious.

    There aren't "dozens" of space-sims. Apart from Derek Smart's horror of a game (that shouldn't be mentioned as being in the genre, unless we want everyone to laugh when we say "space-sim") - we have I-War, Tie Fighter (x-wing, alliance to some extent), Freespace 1&2 (even if those aren't exactly very deep).. and... that's it. The rest are shooters and arcade games. Because, they say, it's too difficult to play anything else. ...possibly because publishers really do browse forums like this, and think people who flaunt their stupidity as a highly valued skill are representative of gamers in general.
    There are dozens of others, the X series, the Elite series, Even Tarr Chronicles has a Z axis.

    And yeah, devs do browse this forum and still you haven't told me what your point is. If you think for a second you're winning friends amoungst devs you're sorely mistaken. You're probably the most worthless poster I've clapped eyes on to date, and I've seen a few.
