Greetings!

Post by Slipstream on Mon Jun 11, 2012 4:48 pm

Slipstream here, East Coast US.

Thanks for taking the time to put up this forum!

I picked up MB when it hit Steam, so I am a n00b. Wink Normally, I am not a fan of Deathmatching, but being able to get my Starfighter Combat Fix in pretty much over-rode that hesitation. I was a huge XvT, Wing Commander player, back in the day. I know, some day, the MB community is going to be big enough that it'll attract the more unpleasant parts of the Intertrons, but right now the community has been nothing but welcoming, warm, and helpful.

--Brian

Maybe it's a sign of affection... Bullet for my valentine? Shot thru the heart? Guns'n'roses Razz

*puts away the bad jokes folder and straightens tie*

Welcome aboard Slipstream, I'm also a Steam-newb and avid fan of the WC/XW/TF starfighter sims. Also liked that movie, The Last Starfighter heaps back in the day and now I've gone and shown my age, haha!

Glad to see you've become an active member of the community! Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions, even disagreements if put forward politely (like a sir!) are welcome and encouraged Smile

The Last Starfighter? That's the spirit!

Let me wish you a warm & helpful welcome to the forums Slip Smile

(btw if X suddenly disappears we'll have to assume the aliens behind Moon Breakers have recruited him for a desperate battle halfway across the galaxy)

Hey.... OLD GUYS!!! Is yer other ship a Zimmer-frame? Laughing

Seriously though... the average age of the veteran and regular players seems to be early 30s or older... or is it just the coincidence that that's about how old all the gamers who grew up playing WC/XW/TF/etc are now?

It's really not. The game shares a lot in common with those old games.


And Slipstream welcome aboard and happy to have you.

Lol! What, no armaments on that thing? Now that's a scary thought, old guys down the street with side-mounted twin-MGs. Shocked

No new-fangled armaments. We just poke opponents with a walking stick.
