So what does an Escort Pilot do, anyway?

God, that was such a bad game. But it was fun. I decked my ship out almost completely with turrets. It looked like a heavily-armed corvette by the time I was done.

Still, I didn't buy it during the Steam summer sale. No replay value.

Edit: If you're going to do retrospectives, I request you do Skyrim.

Damn, those WERE some huge "danger: explosive" signs, weren't they?

And wow, that scene looked bad. Then again, it was originally a PC game released in 2006. But this was the Xbox 360 version, released in 2010. They didn't attempt to make it look any better, now did they? -_-

EDIT: Wait, did that game actually say "Today"? As in it takes place today? As in "today" today? Huh, WHAT???

If he's an escort then maybe they really are going to the prom.
And you' want your date to look nice wouldn't you?

Hmm... well the giant "danger-explosive" signs on the ship were probably to warn dock authorities and other cargo ships so that they were extra-special carefull around them, y'know, like those signs are usually for, I don't think that craft was anticipating or intended for combat of any sort, hence it's (ineffective) escort.

Best ship for the rookie? In MY day, we used to give them the worst ship with the worst weapons, with one ore unit...
Never understood that last part...

I lol'd at the Stargate reference. Also that games voice acting was AWFUL, the first line by the protagonist actually made me cringe.

The game was actually a lot of fun but, yeah, the voice-acting wasn't exactly... well.. good.

You see? Those "danger, explosive materials" signs did have a purpose! If only those...uh...pyramid ships had paid heed to them their gate wouldn't have been partially destroyed.

Some people just lack common sense.

I think we're not alone now, there seem to be other vessels around.
I think we're not alone now, the throbbing of the Hyperdrive isn't the only sound.

Oh my. The commander has no eyebrows. Must have been at one hell of a frat party, the night before.

The newbie was given the best ship because the assignment officer didn't want to work there anymore and getting fired was the only way he could collect unemployment.

As for "Escort Pilot", I can only assume it means; To road test fresh prostitutes that arrive on the station.

NEPOTISM, NEPOTISM

I keep imagining now that no smoking signs on spaceships has slogans like, "When you smoke... Everyone on the ship smokes! SAVE OUR OXYGEN"

This was a particularly bad cutscene and a particularly good Unskippable. Well done.
