Space Engineers

Postby cgeyl » Tue Jul 15, 2014 2:53 am

I'm interested in getting into Space Engineers. It looks like it could be a really fun game.

So should I get it? And has anyone played it or looked at it who can give me their impressions of it.

So I got the game and played a bit, but unfortunately I only have my craptop at the moment. I played a bit of super low FPS with it but I didn't play it for more than 5 minutes.

That being said I looked up a heap of other media on it and the game looks awesome, I will definitely play more in the future when I get something which can handle it. It's very much in my sort of area (minecraft/ksp sort of thing, but with weapons).

I'm expecting a lot of good things to come from this game.

I have played only a little, controls are a bit shitty but it's interesting. Have not gotten terribly far... still learning some of my limitations. Also, the game's understanding of physics at times can be incredibly warped. I don't know how but at some point I was falling through space.

Onundr has played a good bit but he doesn't check the forums too often.

I love it personally. If you are the type of person that likes building neat things, you should give it a try. It's also updated pretty often.

And yes gravity makes no sense in this game ATM.

P.S. Emp I check these forums at least once a week hoping for news on n@w and to see what my buddies are up to :P

Oh I know, I see you floating your ass around my boards but I wasn't sure if it was weekly or monthly.

The real question is do you guys play on cheat mode by having inertial dampeners turned on?
