I came here looking for anything new on this game...really looking forward to it. Then on to GMT and saw Talon Tuesday! I had forgotten about these.

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

If there is one point I hope you grab from this article it is....more flavor.

The weapons in this game are not carbon copies of each other with different hit percentages. There are different mechanisms and charging rates and, in the case of the big weapons, different special effects.

The Terran's Wave Motion Gun creating the subspace pocket and pushing ships - that can be huge - causing collision damage.

The Talon's Fusion Beam shotgun impact, including friendly fire - in the swirling behive that large fleet battles often become - you likely will at some point hit your own ship because you want to nail others.

Thanks for posting here! Saved me some copy-paste effort :-)

I'm OK with this not being in news, it still shows up on the feed in the main page for people to find the game.

Thanks again, let us know if you have any other questions.

In reading the description, I like the way energy use and actions are handled within the impulse. It looks like it will give the player the strategy of deciding how to use energy without much overhead.

Just added Talon to a couple of my favorite geeklists that show space combat games.

Glad you did! This popped up on one of the lists I subscribe to and it was an auto-buy, been looking for a good capital ship game. Now, if only they would "accidentally" ship my pre-order early...
