Holy Balls, Rebellion doesn't have a learning curve. It has a cliff. Even the tutorial in the manual explicitly says, "Do not be concerned about winning following this tutorial. You won't. This is just to familiarize you with concepts and controls."

I wanted to see some of the Rebel capital ships. Need some references for VII.

Did I mention I've never actually won a game?

Yeah, Rebellion is hard. Something that will help you is setting the galactic speed to the lowest without pausing it. That way you can pay attention to more without having to really worry about an enemy fleet suddenly popping into one of your primary construction planets.

If all else fails, there is a trainer so you can at least see the ships

Well not in the trainer, but you can make it so you'll live long enough to actually see them in game

I am curious as to why you rate it so highly. It's certainly ambitious, but... the execution is questionable in my mind.

I greatly enjoy it. While the execution wasn't flawless, I'd say it's pretty damn good for the 90s.

It certainly has some interesting ideas... with some amusing crossover with a few VII concepts I used way back.

I like the use of raw and processed materials over funds. And maintenance costs was something I actually introduced to my RPG to cap army and fleet capacities.

It certainly makes things interesting. Makes it so the Rebels have to rely on the outer rim/diplomacy before dancing with the Imperial fleet. And it also makes it so the Imperials can't zerg rush with Star Destroyers.

Maybe we could ask EA really nicely to do a new TIE Fighter game, in the new continuity. <_<

Paha! No...

They already kind of tried that with Attack Squadrons anyway. Obviously it's not the same thing... but it is to EA...

I thought this would go well with the celebration of Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds going on GOG.com, so I included the video remix of the cantina band from star wars.

Check this out.



I know it's a remix and this topic is a little old, but I thought it would be cool in this topic. Besides, it's got a picture of a stormtrooper breakdancing!

If this doesn't make you want to wheel about through the infinite dark, spitting verdant justice into the hearts of anarchists (and... maybe fighting Terminators in a few points?), then YOU HAVE NO SOUL.

You do, but it might as well be on rails.

Game shown is Medal of Honor, but most of it applies to CoD and Battlefield as well.

In the last year or two I got my friends into AoK and I'm convinced I could get them into SWGB too if it was on steam. Unfortunately I can't convince them to use GOG even though you can play it with the steam interface.... is there any particular reason steam has so much SW stuff but not GB?
