Default New Screenshots are *sick!!!*

After waiting for years for this game, and for more information other than a wallpaper, the newly posted screenshots just made be foam at the mouth even more for the game!!! Waiting until the end of the year is going to be VERY tough, but given the very sad state of the 4X game genre, there's not much choice in the matter. Be that as it may, the screenshots look REALLY good, and Space combat is a thing of beauty:

My goodness, look at the frigging station!!! WOW is all I can say, and thinking back, Hegemonia was a beautiful game, back in 2002, and I've yet to get the latest Imperium Galactica, but those games are a bit too linear, whereas SEV has been so wide open and this makes for an staggering amount of variety in ship and unit design. SEV is going to be an instant classic, but I just have to find a way to last till release date.

Hey, what if we all set a meeting for the release date (or the day before) and form a lineup to buy the game? Do you think the sudden appearence of a long line of fans at a computer store would be newsworthy? Only question is If the store sees the lineup and does not have enough stock, will they be able to get more games in time to satisfy the demand? It's a nice idea, but I'm afread that too many of us fans would be left in the cold when the stock runs out.

Well, it's fun to think of things like this even if it will never happen.

Cheers!

Then there's no other option than to arrange a lan party where the people who didn't get their copy of SE5 could play SE5 as hotseat game.

I'm not sure if this kind of configuration is possible with Se5 or with Se4 for that matter.

Example:
Comp1.
-Jraenar
-Amonkrie
|
Comp2.
-Cue Cappa
|
Comp3.
-Sergetti
-Norak
-Abbidon

Is the above example possible in SE4/5? I've always wondered that.

Ummmm I cant help but notice quite a few NDA's not yet received. How long before their slots are re-rolled?

Oh that was rude, forget I said that.

Considering that non of the European NDAs have been recieved thus far to my knowledge

Then consider that my NDA would of been in the US by Thursday of last week
Fair to say that you Yanks need to sort you postal service out

Oh, and Gandalf, if you didnt mean it then you wouldnt have posted it (or edited it removing the comment)

they are raising the rates soon which is supposed to help

And you are right, I coiuld have edit/canceled it. But I did mean to show regret at such rabid circling for an opening.
