    IGN just posted a new teaser trailer for JGE. Technically gameplay footage, but recorded from free-cam instead of from actual player's POV.



    [EDIT]
    In retrospect, this probably should have gone in the "news" section. Move it if you like.

    [EDIT 2]
    Here's the same trailer on YouTube:

    If you play it on mute it rocks, but have the sound on and all i can think is cheap BSG rip off.

    i prefer gameplay footage, but this is a neat trailer that shows a little hint of what fleet combat might look like.

    still no first-person cam =(

    I like it a lot, they look like their going in the right direction here, and I like the 'edge' ships they showed a quick look of a couple, very nice. Of course we wont fly them but they'll look good before we splat them, lol.

    There has been 1st-person available since way back when I saw the game. I believe they use 3rd-person a) to give it a more cinematic effect and b) because (from what I'd been told) most of the devs play it in 3rd person.

    I can't help but think of a console game when I watch any of the teasers. The 3rd person few, and just the way the ship movement is screams console to me.

    I can't help but think it may be console and PC and they haven't fessed up to the console release yet because it's new territory for ND and they want to make sure they can do it before announcing.

    Been mining to much in JGC so you see what goes through my head while licking rocks.

    There are some off-screen (as in, camera-recordings of someone playing) videos of first-person gameplay floating around the 'net, but they're gun-camera (HUD-only) instead of cockpit-view -- most likely because ND hasn't finished actually designing the cockpits yet. Official word is that it will be just like JGC: choose between cockpit, gun-cam, (FPV, no cockpit), and chase-cam (third-person).

    I like the idea, Ranger, but I can't imagine that there will ever be anything at all from any area of any game that ND will hold off announcing. If one of the ND folks let slip a fart that smelled even vaguely remenicent of a console, they'd start the 'family beta' tomorrow, even if they were 5 years from something that might be marketable.

    I doubt there is anything 'deep' here. The game looks console-ish because everything pop-culture looks consoleish, and this game _screams_ pop-culture appeal.

    I'll play the game when it comes out, unless arthritis has set in so bad that the folks at the retirement home won't let me play. Course, I'm assuming there will still be computers in 2024.

    Remember when ND used to give fan sites exclusives? That was awesome.

    It would not make sense to give exclusives to fansites when there are none with any appreciable traffic. JSR is, by far, the busiest of the fansites I've seen -- and there are rarely more than a handful of perople here at any given time -- often less.

    So the exclusive material just goes to the commercial gaming sites.

    Im humping no one's leg. I think JGE is a complete clusterfuck and have said so often and loudly. Stop being so defensive. I'm not picking on JSR. It's just not what one would call an "active JGE fansite" (IMO).

    It makes no business sense to give exclusives to you or me or any of the other JG sites any more.
