I loved Privateer... I played that game so much back in primary school!

Found out about Freelancer a few years ago and I loved that too.
Just found this thread today and wow, this looks amazing!!!

Definitely going to back this one

The lighting/textures and all the 3d models, immersion, just everything looks so well done and all being early in the development cycle things will only get better. Really looking forward to it even if its just for the impressive visuals. Just started watching the hour long vid and so far really impressed with his vision and direction and giving PC gaming back the edge it seems to have lost.

Oh FRAK yeah! (sorry, couldn't resist)

So many awesome memories playing the WC games when I was a kid. That music track that played when the pilots were scrambling to launch remains one of my all-time faves. Woo hoo!

Indeed they did, however, a joystick was so much better. As a matter of fact I just found my old MS Sidewinder 3D Pro! Now to sort out some hind of usb-gameport adaptor. Or I suppose I could install one of the old Sound Blaster cards I have laying around, wonder if there are gameport drivers for Win7 64....

Oh hell yes. This looks awesome, I remember playing WC on my SNES (yeah yeah I know...). The whole addition of First person stuff looks really good. Plus the graphics look incredible. Bring it on

Well, seems like things are going well so far for them... their server/crowdfunding links crashed and burned very quickly (and according to the email i received, they're still down) but they managed 4,564 donations totalling $455,590 on day one. Not a bad ratio of $ per donation!

I put $60 down. I want the really talented guys in the industry make the games they want to make without being controlled by suits. Hopefully it'll shake up the industry and get more quality stuff out the door.

No.

The Gaming industry is following the film industry in terms of production and funding. It's done. It will not change.

There will be exceptions to the rule (such as this, kickstarter, etc). But i'll be honest, i don't think that Kickstarter will bear much fruit in 2-3 years when some of the big names/pools of money are supposed to land.

Agreed though I think they'd probably play pretty well with a 360/ps3 pad (esp with rumble support).

I'll prob pledge for this, WC2 was the 1st game I ever actually paid money for
