    I've only got 2 of the 3 I believe and haven't read them yet. I had trouble trying to get Book 3 I think. Had a similar problem way back with 'The Passing of the Techno-Mages' trilogy but eventually got a copy off the author :) but I never got around to finishing that series. Let me know if it's as good if not better than the Bester trilogy.
  • HunterSat Feb 02, 2019 2:18 pm
    The author? How'd you swing that? Said author just has spare copies laying around?
  • XelionsMon Feb 04, 2019 6:46 am
    Yeah. I reached out. I've still got the emails to the author.. lol. It cost me some pennies but the gesture was nice. Authors generally have spare copies of book(s) they publish... at least in my experience thats what I've found :nod:
  • HunterMon Feb 04, 2019 7:05 am
    That's nice. I've often wondered what the success rate would be for trawling various charity shops in the UK for B5 books (or any decent genre finds).
  • XelionsMon Feb 04, 2019 7:14 am
    I'd have to say better than here in Oz where I'm at. I just trawl online. Ebay and the various book retailers whether it be new or used tend to have mostly anything.
  • HunterMon Feb 04, 2019 11:47 am
    The problem with the B5 books is the extortinate prices on the trilogy series. One of the books is always about $50 or something ridiculous.
  • HunterSat Feb 16, 2019 6:02 am
    Well I finished The Fallen (as per your recommendation). I'm sorry to say, but you probably have rose tinted glasses because so many things were broken - the game felt more like an unfinished BETA tbh. I'll describe in more detail when I post it next week! :)
  • XelionsThu Feb 21, 2019 12:58 pm
    Extortionate prices on hard to get books isn't going away anytime soon.
  • XelionsThu Feb 21, 2019 1:02 pm
    I played the game straight through and would have loved to have played it in full HD. Nothing was broken for me. I think it was on XP and maybe 7. I thought it was a polished game.
  • HunterFri Feb 22, 2019 1:10 am
    Oh there were definitely bugs. There was a game breaking bug in the Kira playthrough, which I'll show in the out-take. TBH I would have preferred a first person game. 3rd person is really hard to get right and few games pull it off IMO.
  • XelionsSun Mar 17, 2019 11:43 am
    I'll check it out when I got some free time :) Was busy with moving recently and it was an epic fail! And so I didn't move :shock: I also upgraded my line from ADSL2+ (yes I'm living in the 90s and its not a good thing) to fibre to a POINT! Yay! I can now upload stuff 100x faster.
  • HunterTue Mar 19, 2019 7:14 am
    Great to hear! I hope we'll be seeing more of you :) Interested in hearing why moving failed.. lol
  • XelionsMon Mar 25, 2019 8:22 am
    The colder weather is fast approaching so I will be online more. Lets just say that renting sux and leave it at that otherwise I'll have to vindicate myself later on.
  • HunterSat Mar 30, 2019 12:20 pm
    The first insect of the year appeared in my bathroom. It's the one thing I love about the cold months.. no bugs!
  • XelionsThu Apr 04, 2019 5:22 pm
    Humidity :roll: My bathroom ceiling is covered in midges thanks to inadequate ventilation over the last season. More work. Yay :(
  • HunterSun Apr 07, 2019 7:25 am
    Kara lurking pretty hard there ;)
  • HunterWed Apr 10, 2019 7:57 am
    I just purchased the remaining Legions of Fire books and SG Atlantis Legacy series. Hoping to finish everything this year!
  • XelionsWed Apr 10, 2019 2:19 pm
    I noticed that with Kara too :nod:
  • XelionsWed Apr 10, 2019 2:22 pm
    Do let me know how good Legions of Fire are. Might have to get stuck into it! I loved the Emperor Cartagia episodes. Hopefully his in the books.
  • HunterThu Apr 11, 2019 3:21 am
    Unlikely since Legions of Fire is set between late Season 5 and A Call to Arms! But there is plenty of Centauri madmen to go around.
  • HunterThu Apr 11, 2019 2:13 pm
    Ooo, a B5 remaster is floating around usenet. Now just to figure out how to get it.. (Edit: Got it! It's a bit plastic looking but some great work nonetheless)
  • XelionsTue Apr 23, 2019 9:57 am
    I looked into that remaster. It's an upscale of sorts right?
  • HunterTue Apr 23, 2019 11:08 am
    Yes, some digital enhcancements . There is a definite improvement in the character scenes, and somehow even the CGI looks sharper.
  • XelionsSat May 25, 2019 3:05 pm
    I just went through a whole lot of threads that I thought there were replies to... spammers right?
  • HunterSun May 26, 2019 7:11 am
    Yes, deleted now
  • XelionsSun Jun 02, 2019 3:43 pm
    Something of possible interest with B5 - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/13 ... on-project
  • HunterMon Jun 03, 2019 6:06 pm
    Yeah I saw that. I've ummed and ahhed over backing it. Money is always an issue for me
  • XelionsWed Jun 05, 2019 8:01 am
    I might look at 10% of whats published in that book and I already invested in the [email protected] online.
  • HunterWed Jun 05, 2019 4:30 pm
    I'd gladly invest, I'm just always a bit strapped for cash, and when I do get disposal income it usually goes on things I've wanted for a while.
  • HunterThu Aug 22, 2019 11:48 pm
    So.. did you back?
  • HunterThu Aug 22, 2019 11:48 pm
    (Cause I didn't.. tho I could have opened my wallet tbh)
  • XelionsSat Aug 24, 2019 10:27 am
    Nah. As much as I'd like to back another B5 project I really wanna see the series/movies upgraded to FHD or at the very least another spinoff :)
  • XelionsSat Aug 24, 2019 10:33 am
    I'm more interested in what happened behind the scenes for game development. Specifically games I played during the 80s/90s whether it be on consoles or the PC.
  • HunterSat Aug 24, 2019 11:06 am
    There will be no series/spinoff/remaster so long as WB is in control.. I think JMS even said 'not until the old dudes in WB are dead, but then probably so will I ...'
  • HunterSat Aug 24, 2019 11:14 am
    A game though I'm not sure
  • HunterSat Aug 24, 2019 11:14 am
    Officially endorsed, definitely not
  • HunterSat Aug 24, 2019 11:15 am
    But nothing to stop a fan project I suppose
  • HunterSat Aug 24, 2019 11:15 am
    A remaster of I've Found Her with new missions would be nice
  • XelionsMon Aug 26, 2019 10:03 am
    Fcuk that! Those old dudes over at WB better be dead soon :badgrin: The lack of consistently good scifi is diminishing.
  • XelionsMon Aug 26, 2019 10:03 am
    I just rewatched Dark Matter over several weeks with bro. Season 3 was a blast - why did it get cancelled... WTF!
  • HunterWed Aug 28, 2019 2:15 am
    It wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. Oh my, am I a living meme now? Killjoys is far less entertaining IMO, but they got 2 extra seasons..
  • XelionsWed Sep 11, 2019 4:03 pm
    Yes :roll: But the 3rd season had some good eps.
  • HunterWed Sep 25, 2019 4:12 am
    Welp I've started on Killjoys current season. It's OK so far.. they seem to have hired a new composer or something, I've heard quite a few old school sample libraries.
  • XelionsThu Sep 26, 2019 11:11 am
    I'll wait until you finish the show to read your final critique. I'm off sci-fi at the moment unless you count random episodes of x-files in HD. I've been watching pornography :oops: ahmm.. I mean Carnival Row and The Boys. Oh and that show, Unbelievable, which was good. Whenever there is uncertainty the truth isn't too far off from a lie.
  • HunterThu Sep 26, 2019 2:00 pm
    Yeah The Boys really spoiled me. I've been slugging through Doom Patrol. It just pales in comparison, but I'm getting through it.
  • XelionsSat Oct 05, 2019 10:18 am
    Homeworld 3 just got crowdfunded! Me thinks we need a FreeSpace 3 game potentially paying homage to all the communities' hard work on FreeSpace Open. Love to see more stories - not 1 - in this universe :mrgreen:
  • XelionsSat Oct 05, 2019 10:18 am
    *in this universe :shock:
  • HunterMon Oct 07, 2019 12:55 am
    Well, the right team for that already disbanded - Revival Studios. They were geared up to the idea of a spiritual successor to FreeSpace. But Overload didn't sell that well, so the company moved on and they now all mostly work at Voltiion again.
  • HunterMon Oct 07, 2019 12:57 am
    FS3 won't happen so long as Interplay holds the license. Heck, I'm not even sure they still do. The Descent name is now owned by some guy in France.
  • HunterSun Oct 13, 2019 1:35 am
    Happy Birthday Hippo! You may be a man now, but I know you're still a kid at heart.
