Oh, I remember the first one. Descent: FreeSpace. Underrated gem if I ever seen one.
I haven't done any space sims since the ancient days of Wing Commander 1/2/Privateer. This is as good a time as any to see why this game got so much buzz from that crowd.
Ah man, some really good fond memories of this game. Its a shame that the online component probably no longer works as it was my first big online game community, complete with persistent rankings and medals earned for completing co-op missions
Hot Damn- I've had this on my GOG wishlist for over a year now, ever since someone here (I think it was Arnoxthe1? Not sure) told me it's the greatest story based space dogfighting this side of TIE Fighter.
Snapped it up in a heartbeat. Thanks for the heads up.
I'd make a joke about a game called "FreeSpace" being free, but even I have standards.
