    Why must America play politics with the debt ceiling. I feel like if they donít get a handle on this game soon itís only a matter of time before they drop the ball for real.

    The debt ceiling is also something that is clearly very poorly understood by most Americans and yet neither side seems interested in really explaining it.


    Oh please. The 'Debt Ceiling' is a silly term used by Republicans to try to screw with Democrats. It's literally just paying the minimum payment on our loans.

    The whole fucking thing should be scrapped and we should require bills to be funded when put in place instead of just kicking the can down the road.

    This absolutely isn't a 'both sides' thing, when was the last time the GOP was in charge of the presidency/congress and they didn't raise the debt ceiling without an issue? (here is a hint - it was raised twice without a peep the four years Trump was president).

    Ok I got Rebel Galaxy Outlaw.

    At first I suddenly thought I'd made a mistake, as I already have Rebel Galaxy and it's so similar (pretty much swapping out capital for a single seater) so I was thinking I should've just put that on.
    But thankfully it's made some significant changes, enough to make it a new game in the same universe.

    I was initially having trouble getting any cash for anything at all without having to use any gains for repairs, but then I saved up for a mining laser and mineral radar and now the money is rolling in.

    My starter ship looks like a lunchbox but floating through asteroids mining deposits with the radio on, returning to cash it in and then getting beaten at pool in the bar back at the station is kind of just what I was looking for.


    I really wished they hadn't changed to single seater ships.

    It just isn't what I was looking for - Avorion is doing a big QoL update.


    Well to be fair it is a different game - not Rebel Galaxy 2. I really enjoy the broadside on brawls between capital ships in Rebel Galaxy, with the fighters zipping around like gnats while you slug it out with other massive ships.

    At the moment though I'm enjoying Outlaw as a different approach in the same space - dog fighting in 3d space from a cockpit view is also good, just different.

    Got myself an upgraded ship now, better hold space, going to outfit it up to take on some decent combat missions now.


    No, I understand it's a different game, not a sequel.

    I'm just saying I really really enjoyed the first one and didn't want another dogfighting sim.

    I'd like a big star wars game where you command a single large ship for whoever - something close to homeworld. Perhaps set in the KOTOR time frame and you have to try to fight off Revan's fleets or something?

    My biggest gripe is the movement controls as described above. I can handle the rest, but the slow left-right turn movement with the mouse instead of A and D is just painful. Because forward and back are W and S, why the fuck are A and D strafe left and right? Q and E are for that. I don't get it.
    You know what, I might even be able to handle the mouse bit if it wasn't so damn slllllloooooooooowwwwwwwwww to turn left and right. I want to be able to do a 180 turn with a single short movement of my mouse or (praise be!) the A and D. I don't want to have to swipe 5 times to turn around, or get a mousepad that is as wide as my desk.

    Anyhoo, thanks for the suggestions, I'll do some research and check prices on Steam.



    So a couple things - A and D as strafe are correct, and you should be be able to turn up turn speed in the options.

    What you are asking for is generally considered 'bad' by the majority of the gaming community. That said, I'd think you could remap stuff to your liking, and if you can't do it natively, I'm sure a modder has done it.

    Finished The Ascent. It's an okay shooter but not great.

    By the second half of the game I was looking for the game to wrap up but there's difficulty ramp ups that mean you need to upgrade the right weapons, for the right enemies, that means you'll be wanting to do lots of side missions. Felt more like a chore than fun by the end.

    But the conclusion of the game is pretty solid cyber punk corporate warfare storyline. It's simple but I like it.

    I would love to play a sequel where they learn from their mistakes in this game and create a more streamlined game, that makes for a better player experience.


    It's a pretty small studio, and reaction to this game has been pretty good. Hopefully we're in for a sequel.

    I can't play it co-op, there are so many bugs that pop up when trying to play it with friends. I hope that gets fixed.
