As such, when I saw that Interplay had seemingly started selling off IPs, rather than see the Freespace IP fall into the WRONG hands, I thought it would be nice to TRY SOMETHING DIFFERENT and which is totally BELOW my current skill levels and experience. I develop high end games. I'm damn good at it if I may say so myself. So doing an action based game worthy of the Freespace name, with high end graphics, a dynamic campaign, kick-ass AI (for which, in case you don't know, my games are held in the highest regard) and true to the franchise mythos is something someone with MY resources has EVERY right to be EXCITED about. Who cares if YOU are crying about it. I sure as hell don't.

Heeeey kids! Tired of those boring, run of the mill, cliched video games? Want a title that doesn't depend on state of the art graphics, incredible cut scenes and exciting gameplay? Well, get rid of every single game that you've ever played in the past, because we've got the hottest and most exciting game that you'll ever play in your entire pointless, fruitless life! That's right, prepare yourself for the one, the only...

Haha, I don't know how good Derek's programming skills are, but there's no way in hell they can match his ego. God damn...I've never seen someone so in love with himself. Sure, I like to show off things I done and say that I'm good at certain things, but jeez, if I ever become like him please shoot me. Bethesda doing a 1st person Fallout game...that I can ALMOST see. But Derek Smart doing a Freespace? I donno...he looks to be making a quick buck more than a good game. But if Interplay is selling of the Freespace lisence, why the hell can't Volition pick it up? I'd much rather see a Freespace 3 from them rather than a Red Faction 3...
