    The game certainly looks pretty but every time they start talking about the "new" X game play I think I die a little inside. I fear they have substituted the game play that made the rest of the series great with new fancy flashy visuals. I will have to play it though before I make my final judgement on the game. My gut tells me that like so many great IPs before they have seriously dumbed down the game play and replaced it with fancy flashy graphics in the name of mass appeal.

    I think 7 years of development didn't go into dumbing down the game systems.. maybe a less steep learning curve, but mastering the game will surely be challenging. Can't wait for Nov.15

    Looks great, glad to see cockpit UI will be built in this time around.

    Love the series, actually didn't bother getting albion prelude, but I will definently be picking this one up.

    We shall see I guess. Don't get me wrong I'm a huge fan of the series. I've just been around gaming long enough to know that when you decide to change the core systems of your game to try to appeal to a larger audience it can go one of two ways... Either your fans will love it and it will do great or they will hate it and go on holy crusades to tell the entire Internet how you're all evil bastards that eat babies.

     

    I really do hope it's a great game just like the rest in the series but this is a very different X game this time. I guess it's my love for the series that makes me a little nervous. I'm not gonna get too hyped up that way I won't get let down if it tanks.

    I'm looking forward to this, hell it's one of only two games I'm interested in till 2014.

    And I'm glad they are removing the previous game's UI that required as they put it "required a PHD in advanced game UI navigation" the old UI was HORRIBLE, no that's not strong enough a word, it was honestly the worst UI in ANY GAME EVER MADE, period. And I mean ANY game. The gameplay was great, but you felt like you were coding the game interface as you played. (And ironically you actually could.)

    Having a good UI this time around may make this the best space sim ever made. Assuming they don't dumb everything else down.

    God I hated that old UI, I wanted to punch whoever thought that was playable in the dev team so badly. It's like they made it so only the developers could use it. Hell it was like trying to play skyrim using only the command console to move and fight.

    To find an intelligent person in a PUG is not that rare, but to find a PUG made up of "all" intelligent people is one of the rarest phenomenons in the known universe.

    So after I did some reading on the features will I be able to be a merchant and my ship be able to only carry a certain amount of goods? Sorry if this seems like a stupid question I have never even heard of this series before.

    Yes you can be a merchant, it´s one of the core features of the game

    There are two types of trading as far as I know, item trading directly with your ship cargo space doing the trading yourself and the big commodity trading you can control a fleet of trading ships you can acquire. You can even dock on your trading ships, give orders and fly escort with them or put them on "autopilot". You can also assign capital ships to guard, etc.

     

    I like that everything works in realtime, e.g. you can watch as a trading ship gets loaded with the actual goods, or watch as asteroids are mined and the ressources flown to the factories and you can even see as the ressources are refined in factories

    Ya I liked how one of their videos said if you destroy a merchant it will have an affect game sounds really cool just preorderd from steam. This honestly sounds like an uncharted waters (not the mmo the console game from the 90s)) in space.

    Hmmmm...... the videos look awesome.  However, after I picked up the x series on steam I frequented the forums looking for a solution to this problem or that problem I was having.  One of the big deals on the forum was that with "X-Rebirth" you would never be able to fly a different ship.  You started with a ship and for the duration of the game that would be your one and only ship. 

     

    Is this still the case?

    Yes, that seems the case.  The ability to pilot various drones from the cockpit of your ship is an interesting one.
