    Default X3 - Reunion, any X2 Fans?

    So anyways, off topic a bit, anyone here play X2 - The Threat and have pre-ordered X3 - Reunion?

    I Pre-Ordered a while back, eagerly waiting its' arrival. Counting the days :P Already was released in the UK I believe, or is at least shipping now, mine will ship on the 3rd of next month Nov. 3, Origionally had pre-ordered the CD-Rom version (before DVD version was even avail). They plan on releasing it on 7 CD-Roms and then of course a DVD Version, which for a while was hard to find here in the US (almost ordered from a UK site just to get a DVD Version. But finally, ebgames.com have gotten DVD Copies, so I had to cancel my old order and get the new one With a "free" T-Shirt lol, I have a closet full of these free T-Shirts from games, Guild Wars, ect.. lol Kinda like shopping for clothes and games at the same time.

    Will be anxious to see if I am able to backup and play X3 from a image. Anyhow, anyone seen any ingame footage of it? Besides trailers,

    Well, if there are any peeps here who are awaiting the game, post here Anyhow, if you have not seen the game, nor heard of it, its a great game, does not have multiplayer, (at least X2 didnt) but IMHO it puts Freelancer to shame and the next one (X3) will have tons of extra goodies in store.

    I'm waiting for X3 too... and I dunno when I'll get it.

    UK version is already out now... but the French one'll be out bitween 18 of Nov (according amazon.fr) and march 06 (according clubic)... And there's no way to buy the english version in france.
    I wonder why...

    ya, US copies were delayed by Customs, who knows why, guess the nuclear items hidden in the cd's are causing problems // end sarcasm

    Well, They have started importing UK DVD versions to US stores due to the customs thing, so not sure if I will be getting a US copy or UK copy, not that it matters to me, but I would like to know what protection the US version is using, already know UK is using Starforce. US and UK / other language versions where published by different companies, DeepSilver ect.., but im guessing US copies will also have StarForce, Egosoft/Enlight seem to favor it on all their games.

    Aye... but they released a patch for the 1.4 version of X2 where the protection was gone... maybe they'll put it off when possible?

    besides, it seems they have problems with the French version... I really dunno why there might be a so big delay...

    no clue , but yeah, they probably will offer a nocd for customers later on, and from the looks of things, this game will have quite a few patches before that ever happens. Already working on 1.3, hopefully to optimize performance and fix some various bugs that have been found, 1.2 was just to fix bugs they found after it was published, who knows, just want to play already lol :P

    I haven't actually player either X2 or X3 but I'm a fan of the genre and I've just finished playing Freelancer (a good game) and I have borrowed X2 so I can try that and figure out if I should buy X3.

    But I must say that from the previews I've read and the screenshots I've seen , it's looking great !

    X2 is far bigger than freelancer... and much more trade oriented... In X2 you can really build an empire

    hehehe, yup, even without multiplayer X2 IMO puts Freelancer to shame

    And the gfx of X3 are unbelievable.

    Make sure you have a system with at least a FX 5xxx or higher however, and a monitor that can do 1024x768+ resolution,

    Minimum resolution on X3 is 1024x768, no more 800x600 ect..

    X2 will be fine below 1024x768 though.

    I'm pretty sure my AllInWonder x800 and AMD x64 3500+ will do the trick... ;-)
