Descent and Freespace

In my mind, these are the top two jewels in Interplay's collection.

If any developers are listening, get moving on delivering them!

No need to hope and wait. You can already buy them at Good Old Games.

Freespace series.. hands down.. one of the best Space games of all time.

Epic battles with Capital ships, mounted with massive beam laser and flak cannons, duking it out..

Imagine a Freespace game with today's technology. I'm not talking graphics, I'm talking hundreds of ships everywhere, capital ships as far as the eye can see, advanced tactics, better voiceovers.... ugh. FS3 could easily be the best game ever made.

I would like to see Descent 3 with better OpenGL drivers. And a native OS X port.

I never could get into Freespace (even though I bought both games), but I absolutely loved the Descent series.

Since GOG is having some issues at the moment - either closing down or performing the most stupid marketing stunt of all time - I wouldn't mind having Descent 1, 2 and 3 including all the expansion packs on Steam right now.

Descent is alive and well on KALI(D1 and 2) and for Descent 3 via a program called VORTEX.

I was searching the forums and ran across this old thread. Descent 1 & 2 are now on Steam. Descent 3 can't be far off. I have all the old CD's and I wonder if there is any advantage in buying them on Steam again? I know the old CD's had issues with the current Windows OS. Do the new versions include any updated code?

So I'm a few weeks late responding to you master... the Steam versions don't really have anything you can't get on the internets. The biggest boost in the Steam version is not using DosBox (good thing); you can also use the Rebirth front-end on D1/D2.

Unrelated... is that Merlin from Kali? Didn't expect to see that name
