I just noticed this in the Impulse store. My palms got sweaty. Is this the Space Rangers 2 2.0 patch I’d been waiting for? Certainly came out quietly, goddamnit!
Frantically I read the description, but this wasn’t the description of an expansion it was the description of Space Rangers II, so either the writer was useless or it wasn’t the product I expected. I look over the features list and this makes it sound like what I’m looking for, but then I see “Two new game modes: text-quests and planetary battles” and remain as confused as ever, especially as text quests were even in the original Space Rangers AFAIK.
Not that it matters because clearly we’re into some seriously wankerous publisher territory here with this being available only in the US and Canda. Is this 2.0? If so it’s time to engage the proxy and teach someone that the Internet isn’t regional.
I don’t know if Brad can comment, but I’d be interested in hearing whether he tried to get worldwide distribution with most games, or if it wasn’t even up to the publisher they were working with or something.
