It may not be X-Wing or Tie Fighter, but it might be as close as we are going to get in this day and age.

Oh good, the explosions are even more fiery than the movies! I really hope they devote enough dev time to making that fire look as realistic as possible.
My only problem is that its Disney so you are never going to hear the end of R2 droids fucking beeping
I just want a cockpit view. Fuck 3rd person space combat.
Granted, I probably had plenty of other things I could have called attention to. But yes, I went with that, because that's the thing that stood out the most from this completely uninspired trailer for a mediocre rehash of a great franchise/concept that deserves a great game, and not the pile of shit this will turn out to be.
That, and as mentioned above, the fucking R2 screaming.
Who knows, if those Baldurs Gate remakes do well, maybe we'll get some other old games remade too. Lord knows these industries FUCKING LOVE THE REMAKES OMG!
I'd buy a remake of X-wing, TIE-Fighter, and all that stuff in a heartbeat.
If your budget is so small that you're going to put your devs Skype call in as the voice acting you might want to rethink releasing a trailer to the public.
Not a terribly impressive trailer. It's all about gameplay though.
It certainly does not look visually up to date or cutting edge , nor does it sound too overly ambitious (16 player). Maybe WII-U exclusive? lol
If this is even an attempt at an X-Wing Vs. Tie Fighter reboot I will do unforgivable shit right here and now to get first access.
Fortunately, these days I have a backlog twenty miles long from Steam sales alone. I don't need to buy a terrible game whose sole purpose is to cash in on my nostalgia.
There will never be another Tie Fighter Wars or XW vs TF. Those games were too complex for the herp derp target audience that is being catered to, plus your average gamer nowadays just wants instant gratification. The retards who think the prequels were any good can't be bothered with managing energy and ammunition.

Is this a Star Wars rail shooter? No thanks.
Hopefully when you beat the game you get to watch Hans Solo dance dance revolution.
Babylon 5 explained space explosions.
Well, this isn't too bad. I'll load up the swtor pvp and see how they compare. More later.
Impressive little browser game.
Give me a new Battlefront damn it.
They sent me a beta email this afternoon. Loading it up now.
Looks like another phase of beta is starting for this. I got a reminder email about it and some beta codes to pass out so if anyone was interested in trying it, here ya go:

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
I used the fourth code - CBT3BFF-MQIFCQCVIH
Can't register, probably due to being in Japan. Wish companies would fuck off with this region limiting bullshit.
More codes for peoples:
Not surprised. Fun factor was lacking.
So pissed off they killed off the "dogfighting" game. Really... it can't be that hard to make. Especially since "space" doesn't require that much in the way of assets. Eve proves this. They can churn out space for nothing.
