So, I bought a new copy of FS2...

#1
My original boxed copy of FS2 is back in the UK. It's the original 1999 edition.
Unfortunately I was stupid enough to sell my original 98 edition of FS1 just over 10 years ago, along with a bunch of other old games including two rare limited edition games... :(
What can I say, at the time I was scrounging for money and didn't really care about sentiment. But now I kind of regret that decision.

And so I paid for a GOG copy of FS2 and installed FSOPEN, as I can't reach my UK box from here. It's been a long time since I played it, but I can honestly say after so much time it feels exciting again.
It's probably been about 4-5 years since I last played FreeSpace. It's kind of like your favorite band. If you listen to them all the time, your brain gets bored and demands new juice.
But if you go for a LONG time without listening to them, eventually your brain will be happy with another listen. It seems games work much in the same way.

So are there any new campaigns I should be looking out for? I do keep tabs on the community ofcourse, but I rarely get the time to play games.
And when I do get time, it's usually some Descent instead - Except for occasions where I'll play a newer trendy game such as SOMA, Fallout etc.

Blue Planet, I think I've played that... Not sure. It feels like I have. I'll give them both a spin.

Is Black Wolf still working on Act 1 of TI? He doesn't come by here anymore (nor do any of the TI crew) so I have no idea if they're still working on it.
