Looks epic, i want another freelancer.

Those graphics look amazing for in-game footage also. Only time will tell if they can pull it off.

They hit 8mil in crowdfunding. Looks like they are actually gonna be able to pull it off. Hopefully it can live up to the hype (knowing Roberts past work, I am sure it will). He's gotten enough extra funding to maybe even have a decent marketing budget too.

I'd rank Privateer as one of my favorite games. Loved the openness of that universe and play style... *sigh*. Plus, you actually piloted the ship. From a cockpit. I know, I know... Eve blasphemy.

I gave them money. A good cause, even if I never play. Almost 9M in funding now.

Sale running until the 4th on starting packages:

Edit: and apparently any ships purchased prior to the fundraiser hitting 9M will get Lifetime Insurance.

Thats why I loved Freelancer, although being able to mod it with new ships was pretty fuckin cool too (I made a fully working starfury including the reverse engines... heh was impressively o/p)

If they accomplish a third of what they've promised, this game will be awesome. Especially shit like the true-physics maneuvering simulation thing, where if one of your six directional thrusters gets blown up it will dynamically recalculate your the way the ship flies...

I might even forgive Chris Roberts for the Wing Commander movie, if this succeeds. Maybe.

I got the fairly cheapo package with just the RSI Aurora with alpha and beta access.
I don't know how to feel about this game. Surely after this much hype it *must* turn out good, right? I've been burned many times, but maybe Chris Roberts can teach me to love again.

Can't ever live up to the hype, still hope it turns out a viable (playable) game.

Exactly. I am not buying into the hype, that'll leave me open to be pleasantly surprised about this game (and after the failure of the new X: Rebirth I am very much in need of that). ;)
