I purchased GSB2 via BMT Micro as soon as the link was available. The usual, smooth-as-silk BMT sort of transaction ensued. No hiccups there.
Good fast download as well. Better get the game while it’s early today – all the internet backbones are going to get real tired moving millions of these GSB2 installer downloads along, ya know!
Cliff, once you accrue a “Scrooge McDuck”-status, gigantic mountain of gold from game sales of GSB1’s sequel, is that when you make your move --purchasing some “modest” beachfront property, such as Oahu or Sardinia or the Azores, and become a modern-day Bond villain? I mean, you clearly already have all of the Sledgehammer Pulse Lasers needed to defend such a place, let alone an entire star-legion of Kraugerisk warships to impose your will upon The World™.
OK now all I need is solid, actual, unencumbered free time to play the pre-release beta. [-shakes a fist at the clock on the wall-]. Where’s those spare milliseconds I’ve been saving for a rainy day?
Humor aside, Cliff, in all seriousness GSB2 is the game that I have most eagerly anticipated the new arrival of ever since GSB1 first appeared. I’m not the sort of person who has several hundred games gathering dust, owning them only because they briefly looked interesting and then the bloom faded from the rose a few days later. I can truthfully claim that the original game kept me going for just short of 5-1/2 continuous years as of today. That’s one hell of a record for replay value. I greatly enjoy modding, too, and I have high hopes that the sequel game will allow me to put all sorts of careful, nefarious plans into motion. Never a dull moment in this gratuitous continuum/series of space games.
Thank you for so much fun over the years, and the promise of much more into the future with this sequel!
