Introduce Yourself (Newcomers)
« Reply #420 on: February 21, 2008, 02:58:44 AM »
Hi folks.  About a month ago I started watching the new BSG series.  That got me thinking about the good old days of playing Wing Commander.  That got me poking around on the net and much to my pleasant surprise, I came across all these Freespace based games.  I downloaded the WC Saga game and quickly discovered that my space combat skills need a little refreshing.  I have been trying to get the BSG game, but I am running into some problems with the download (I'll post about that elsewhere), and that led me to this forum.  Yay!

When I am not wasting my life away behind a computer I am doing a masters degree in archaeology.  I also play in a couple of bands and have a bit of a nearly all consuming obsession with motorcycle and motorcycle racing.  

Anyway...hi!

Thanks for the community!
Nothing bothers me I\'m already disturbed.

Hello everyone!

Hey out there!!!
So it seems I'm a little late to this here party... and what an awesome one it is, I might add.  Man... I gotta start by relaying the magic of ebay... now, I don't remember what made me think of Freespace and Freespace 2 a couple of weeks ago, but when I did, I jumped on ebay and now I've got copies of both games... naturally I've been blowing Shivans back to hell ever since!  Originally, I played through these games back in '99... and then I kinda lost them...  but now I'm back!  I didn't even know about the SCP until the other day, so my elation has multiplied a hundredfold!!!!  I can't wait to start these new-to-me campaigns and I just want to thank everyone in advance who've worked so hard to enhance the gameplay of FS2

Hey everybody, my name is Rudi I am quite new to FS but the BtRL had me just tickled pink and it led me to here and from what I see it seems quite cool here and I wish I had known about this before.

Yo.  I'm Diggy, and I just registered.  I'm known as Black_Mage and bookking99 on other forums (I'm on a lot of them), so if any of you recognize me from somewhere, drop me a PM. :D

I was refered to this site by my friend Krystal, and so far, it looks pretty cool. I may be spending a lot of time here, so I'll try to get to know all of you. :)

Peace!!!
