It's beautiful. TF2 as God intended it to be.

Neverhoodian @ Star Fighter of Day: Y-Wing

I love the Y-Wing, particularly the OT-era ones with the exposed components. It perfectly exemplifies the resource-strapped Rebellion and their willingness to use just about any ship they could get their hands on. You really get the impression that these things have been modified and jury-rigged over the years just to stay in one piece, yet they still manage to keep on ticking in spite of everything they've been through.

Neverhoodian @ Lancer Update

EU ship design went through a weird phallic phase in the 90's. Lancers, Carracks...hell, Dreadnaughts even have a penile-esque "tip" on the front. Freud would have had a field day.

The Empire would have won if they paid more attention to their Expanded Universe hardware. For example, Interdictor Cruisers should have been mandatory additions for all Imperial strike fleets, prohibitive cost be damned. Imagine if Vader deployed an Interdictor or two at the end of ESB. No last second getaway for the Millennium Falcon.

That's part of the settings' lasting appeal. There's something for everyone, including relatively grounded and gritty commando raids, swashbuckling lightsaber duels, Spaghetti Western-esque gunslingers, WW2-style space dogfights and straight-up crazy stuff like time travel, insane clones, zombies and space whales. Even if you don't care for some aspects of Star Wars, you're bound to find something in it that tickles your fancy.

Neverhoodian @ GameFront relaunches March 11th 2018!

All of the files restored? Huzzah! Time to take a trip down memory lane with my favorite games from 15 years ago (God I feel old...).

Every post restored, though? Hoo boy, teenage me made some really cringey comments back in the day. Oh well, live and learn.

Awesome! Gunboats never got the love they deserved outside of the X-Wing series. Am I correct in assuming this is inspired by Fractalsponge's take on the ship?

Those things seem to have paper armor in the show, getting taken down by just one or two strafing runs. I guess they're the Star Wars version of the Federation Miranda circa the Dominion War.

Neverhoodian @ Rogue One Homage

Those Nebulons always were begging for their necks to be snapped like that. Seems like a pretty glaring weakness in the design (didn't stop them from being tough as nails in the X-Wing games, though). Then again it was originally an Imperial design, and we all know how much the Empire loves their Achilles' heels.

Neverhoodian @ AOTR "The Daily Unit"

An interesting and distinctive twist on the classic Tie design. If I were an Imperial agent I would fly a modified version as a courier ship. Remove the warheads, expand the aft section to include basic living quarters and cargo space, and maybe even fit a top-mounted dual laser cannon turret or miniature cloaking device for protection.

It's possible to like both continuities, you know. I just think of it in Star Trek terms and consider them two timelines from a potentially limitless number of Star Wars multiverses.

My favorite Tie design. It's a shame it was overshadowed by the Tie Defender in Legends and ignored completely in the current canon (though Kylo Ren's Tie Silencer bears more than a passing resemblance).

I like how this looks more like how it originally did in Tie Fighter. I wasn't a big fan of the greenhouse-esque canopy overhaul in later games.

One of my favorite Imperial ships. It's a shame it wasn't depicted all that much outside of the X-Wing games.

Neverhoodian @ Faction Profile: The Galactic Republic

Agreed. First chance I get I'm going to build a fleet of Victories to crush the opposition. They're my favorite Star Destroyer variant, and I can't wait to use them as main ships of the line instead of a mere supporting role.

Neverhoodian @ Faction Profile: The Galactic Republic

Personally, I'd like to see the Z-95 Mark 1 in some form. Swing wings, forked tail, bubble canopy and armed with triple blasters on the wingtips, with hardpoints along the wings and fuselage for extra ordinance. Only problem is that it wasn't spaceworthy, so its usefulness would probably be limited to ground battles.

IT'S HAPPENING!

I look forward to seeing how the team fleshes out the unit roster. I've always found Hapan ship designs fascinating, with their inventive workarounds and tactics that helped mitigate their technical shortcomings.

Well, shoot. That's what I get for copy-pasting a quote from Wookieepedia without source-checking.

"Your generic TIE grunt is just plain suicidal. And the TIE Defender jockey is bloodthirsty. But the TIE Interceptor pilot, he's suicidal and bloodthirsty. When you see a squad of those maniacs flying your way, you'd better hope your hyperdrive is operational."

Neverhoodian @ Rebel Alliance new exclusive mens womens Starfighter Tactical Backpack all sizes

I've long entertained the notion of the GR-75 serving as a "pocket carrier." My vision is slightly different through, with the transport stripped of its cargo containers (they're supposed to be modular, after all) in favor of a small hangar instead. Your interpretation probably makes more sense though, as my rendition would leave precious little space for the ship's power supply and maintenance/living facilities.

Neverhoodian @ Lore Holocron

Nice! This should help put things into better context for those unfamiliar with "Legends" content, which let's face it, is going to be an ever increasing issue as it's phased out of circulation and newer generations of fans are brought up without it.

Reading the entry shown here reminds me how, despite how goofy and nonsensical the old EU could be, it at least conveyed a proper sense of scale. One of the things that bothers me about the new post-Endor canon is how quickly the galaxy-spanning Empire folded in just a handful of battles (which was clumsily retconned with Palpatine's Contingency plan). The loss of a single Executor-class at Jakku was treated as a grand catastrophe that broke the Imperials' backs, despite the movies indicating that such ships were fairly common ("Now don't get jittery Luke, the Empire's got a lot of command ships" -Han Solo, RotJ). Here you really get a sense of just how huge the Empire was when the loss of multiple SSDs is treated with a shrug and an "oh well, them's the breaks" attitude.

Neverhoodian @ Team Fortress 2 Vintage

I tried it a while back, but I couldn't stand how toxic the players were. Take the worst elements of 4chan's "/b/" and "/pol/" boards and you have a pretty good idea what TF2C's "community" is like.

I'm also not that fond of all the extra stuff TF2C tacked on to the base game. If I wanted gimmicky gameplay modes, garish visuals and unbalanced alternate weapons I'd play modern TF2.

I love it. The Y-Wing is one of my all-time favorite Star Wars ships, and this really captures its rugged beauty.

Excellent work! It's great to see the addition of elements like the briefing room, as it really adds to the immersion factor.

Neverhoodian @ Empire of the Hand Preview

As much as I like the Remnant/Warlord factions, it's good to take a break from Imperial tech once in a while. The revamped EoH looks great so far. I can't wait to try them out myself when the full 2.2 launches.

Nice choice of unit to begin the image gallery with. The Droid Starfighter/Vulture Droid is one of my favorite prequel ships.

Amazing. Was it inspired by the sawfish, perhaps? I can't help but be reminded of it.

Neverhoodian @ Fall of the Republic Announcement

Fair points to be sure. There's certainly an appeal about two superpowers duking it out in a massive, no-holds barred conflict, and it is a more appropriate type of scenario for EaW's game mechanics. It's one of the many reasons why I end up playing ICW more than the vanilla game, because it makes more sense for an established government like the New Republic to take and hold territory than a small resistance movement relying on hit-and-run tactics like the Rebel Alliance.

I guess I like the appeal of the underdog taking on seemingly insurmountable odds, which is more the theme of the GCW. There were many times in both Legends and the current canon where the Rebel Alliance came perilously close to annihilation, yet they managed to hold on by the skin of their teeth.

Neverhoodian @ Fall of the Republic Announcement

I am very intrigued by the mention of pre-Clone Wars factions and events. There's certainly a potential wealth of possibilities given the plethora of "brush fire" conflicts in the decades prior to the Clone Wars. I've always considered EaW to be an "Infinities" product with the myriad of ways the player can alter the course of galactic events. It would be interesting to explore scenarios where the Clone Wars as we know it was radically different or never happened in the first place.
