Will Rebel Galaxy Outlaw Usher In a New Era of Cockpit Sims? - Discussion Topic for Week of 9/29/19
Friends, I'm trying something new. Weekly discussion topics, with an article on the site to spark things off, and then continuing the discussion here. This week's topic is whether we'll see more cockpit combat space games thanks to RGO. You can read the article here:

And continue the discussion below! Yay!

Personally i want to play in more flagshipy type cockpits but in single player, i really am looking forward to this project:

http://flagshipgame.com/

if and when that turns up it looks like a really cool flagship cockpit :-)

So more of a CIC game then? ;)

Also I hope they're still working on it. I want that game too.

You know, like the command center of the Galactica. A Command Information Center.

aaah i get it, yeh, cockpit games can feel kinda cramped, i fancy something that makes you feel like your in a huge ship bridge with massive windows to see outside as well and streamline controls, ie not tons of buttons lol. flagship looks pretty on point for that :-)
KINGS GUARD GAMES Sep 29, 2019 @ 11:44am 
i do hope rebel galaxy pushes thing forward :-)
BrianRubin Sep 29, 2019 @ 11:48am 
Me too, and I'd love to see Flagship actually become a thing.
KINGS GUARD GAMES Sep 29, 2019 @ 12:25pm 
thing lol i mean things :-D
KINGS GUARD GAMES Sep 29, 2019 @ 1:16pm 
guess the main thing is somebody gets inspired, or an idea to improve on what outlaw does. i would have loved the original rebel galaxy with cockpits! that would have been epic with the big broadside ships :-)

Not me, I can't get enough of cockpit games! Having said that, I wouldn't say no to a captial ship sim in First Person! :D
KINGS GUARD GAMES Sep 29, 2019 @ 1:59pm 
yeh thats what i want too, capital ship first person, but with like great bots that you can order about as captain, or just really streamlined controls. would be great to like set warp then walk around your ship and stuff. as long as it got interesting stuff to look at.

im also reminded of an old gem, defcon 5 where you defended a whole mining colony from alien attach by yourself! it was great on ps1 i think. you could mess around with turrets and locking bulkheads ect. so yeh i guess im more for a very big cockpit :-D
KINGS GUARD GAMES Sep 29, 2019 @ 2:07pm 
cheers brian, i got that, and yeh its great, but its really hectic! lol. i do love it but boy you cant kick back and enjoy the scenary too much. really edge of your seat action. do love the ship design and space battles though. 10/10 action game, also the ship interiors are very small even on the big ships, which is fine for the style of gameplay but not really what im after :-)

Infinity: Battlescape look looks good for cockpit action :-), look awesome!
