I haven't looked forward a game like I'm looking forward to FFG's "X-Wing" in a very long time. I'm really REALLY excited for the game, but there are a few drawbacks. First, new news doesn't come out often enough. (I know, I know - probably no news to post). Second, the announced "Early 2012" release date is too far away.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, (and back before the internet), I was this excited for the original "X-Wing" combat space sim by LucasArts to come out. I called the LucasArts weekly. The operators got to know the sound of my voice: "No Mr. Smith, nothing new to report." Finally, one day I got the best news. The operator said "Mr. Smith! It looks like I win. We operators had a lottery going to pick who would get your call." (Makes me sound like a stalker, doesn't it?) He then told me the exact release date and informed me of the special commemorative edition available for pre-order. (I got a hat, a pewter miniature, a polo shirt, and a copy of the game which included an X-Wing novella).
So this is bring back lots of memories for me. "Early 2012" can't come soon enough for me.
