I am really excited about this, but I have old pc so not sure if I'll be able to play any time soon unless sys req's are doable for me.
That being said on the other hand the graphs looks a bit "dated" so it will be a huge disappointment if it still requires a lot of power to run. Don't get me wrong they are not bad looking, and on many occasions the skin work and textures have much greater impact than the cgi itself, but that's a wide topic....
I'd say the game looks interesting, and I love that you probably won't play with the original crew itself, but you'll "have" to ;P make one of your own, so ppl end up with interesting and unique crews. I am sure one will have a lot of meeting with the originals tho.
Another thing I am wondering is, will this be free to play or fee based. And will it exploit the play to win or micro feeds systems, which is pretty much pay to play/win again anyways....
Back to the game play, hence the site's down and I haven't had any awareness of this in the past, does any one knows whether you'll have to hire real players or you can have the option to use npc's or you'll only be able to use npc's and no life npc's/players as they call them. :P
It's great that you can customize your ship and rooms, but the lather kinda looked a bit cheese or unfinished/unpolished. And also the game looks like it's gonna be point to click, which sadly reminds me of the bitter memories of the fail attempt of Farscape rpg. Doubt it will be that bad, but if certain stuff lacks next thing to worry is the plot and the proper use of the characters' actors. I mean if they use them in silly situation and put them in stupid dialogues and stuff like that, which fails to make a proper plot/story. Not being negative here, we'll have to wait and see.
It be a fun game to play tho.
