Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

Does Paramount invest anything in these games? I thought they just took the licensing money and then said yea or nay to story elements and the final product.

Don't think so, but I've heard that perhaps at least for this game, the writers for Star Trek XI are involved with this one's story.

Paramount doesn't, but the game's publisher does. The publisher has to spend on the licensing (which is very expensive) and pay the developers. And publishers are just as cautious about using an IP as the people who own it, if not even more.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

This time, though, the publisher is Paramount Digital Entertainment - so maybe that will have an effect on the quality of the final product:

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

Do we know if McCoy, Uhura, Chekhov, Scotty, or Sulu are in this? So far all anybody has talked about in everything I've read has been talking about Spock and Kirk, but IMO it wouldn't really feel like a real TOS/nuTrek story without at least some kind of appearance by the rest of the characters.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

Ok im not going to get excited.....i still feel the sting of Star trek Legacy, and the let down taste of Star Trek online is still a fresh wound of what could have been.....so im going to stay very calm and simply wait until i see the actual game in action.

Ok i will allow myself to be a tiny teeny tiny weeny bit excited, but thats it.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

Will there be an actual multi-player lobby (think Halo 1 multi-player on the PC) or will there be an arbitrary "match-making" system that will find you a game, and by God you're going to play it whether or not it's the settings you wanted? Because I've been having heaps of trouble even finding a partial match on Splinter Cell: Conviction using Ubisoft's matchmaker.

Other than that, I'm very excited. I can count on one hand the number of Star Trek games I've played and enjoyed, and I sincerely hope that I can up that number a bit with this new title. Any word on rather or not it'll be available via the OnLive service?

I just looked and couldn't find one through Memory Alpha, Wikipedia, or Yahoo.

Maybe thats why it has no website, no nothing.

Maybe its storyline is closely ties into the movie.

That would be bad. Because it would mean we won't see it until 2013 when the sequel comes out.

It takes a couple of years to make a good game.
