Wow, how did I ever forget this game was around? Great game play, and from what I could see last night, a, believe it or not, friendly community that was seemingly devoid of the OMG, PL me plz k thx crowd.
The learning curve is kind of steep, but the tutorials give you a good idea of what's going on. I liken it to chess, it takes maybe 30 mins to learn the basics of the game, but it seems to take a long time to master.
The game is a MMO Space sim. I heard it referred to as Space Quake. That doesn't seem far off for the the combat portion of the game. Newtion physics are very fun in combat. What really makes life nice is the ability to turn them on and off.
So yeah, I think I'll spend a bit more time in the game tonight...
