I noticed that some Battle of Britain style of game is coming out, something turn based?  Anyone have an idea on this one?  I read it somewhere but forgot

Scramble: Battle of Britain

A simultaneous turn-based dogfighting game.
Set in a 3D airspace, the game features dynamic flight physics for the best and most realistic tactical combat experience. The Luftwaffe and RAF fighter squadrons go head-to-head over the English Channel. Competing players simultaneously issue control inputs for multiple aircraft while time is paused.

WEGO then? If so I am so freakin parmped!

Looks like...

I also will be keeping an eye on the Stargate and MoM games.

Wow Scramble looks insane. If they can pull it off it would be...bowel-quaking.

I'd rather play Scramble then drink Kefir to quake my bowels!

Iím actually shocked someone is moving forward with a Stargate game. Itís been over a decade since theirs been any media on that IP (the railed SG Universe show).

I just canít see they gaining anything in using it for a game. Just seems odd, unless this is strictly a game to keep the IP from reverting.

Perhaps the IP was cheap and they got fairly free artistic license with the game for it. I tried watching stargate again a year or so ago and found it had not aged well by the way. I really want to see if babylon 5 has aged well though... that recently got touched up.

True, but at this point I just donít know what kind of value it would give you.

the show is complete cheese, but in a faux 80ís type of way. Plus the one ďGroundhog DayĒ episode was pure gold.
Insert witty comment here.

I tried rewatching Bab5 about 10 years ago and couldn't make it through the first seven or eight episodes.  The dialogue was terrible, the acting was wooden, and the foreshadowing was melodramatic.

I think I agree. Back when I was a young lad watching these shows. My imagination took me with them without noticing as much cheese. As an older adult and with all the progress in society since then it's harder to suspend disbelief.

Yep. I so hope they can. Although I sincerely hope the "Planning is time limited" bit can be turned off...

Excellent descriptive - I shall be using that more in conversation going forward.

You may talk the talk and appear to be quite easy going to foster popularity, but to the MAN I say F*CK YOU." And Steve G is F******g rude ? Just another day on the BF forum ... one demented idiots reaction to BF disagreeing about the thickness of the armour on a Tiger II turret mantlet.
