Don't bother with the first link, there's no sign of PC releases anywhere.

Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

I must admit i am getting a bit worried about this game, why have the game reviews not appeared yet, has there been a embargo on reviews about this game, if so that's not good, why is it not being publicised all over the place, and no playable demo or even any word of one, i am getting a red alert about all this, and less than a month to go before release, reviewers must have had a review copy some time ago.

Yes i may be a bit cautious after being stung by Aliens : CM, but its hard not to notice this this stuff, even on the offical forums people are asking why the devs have said nothing and why its all went quiet.

What is going on.

We're a month out from release and the game is getting publicity all over the place, it's just not a lot of big reveals. Reviews tend to come out about a week to two weeks around the release of the game, so we've got a long way to go. That said, I am concerned by the lack of in-depth footage from this game. Bad Robot's policy of secrecy might be to blame here, but so far we've seen very little of the supposed puzzles, tricorder stuff, and tech upgrading. I think just playing through the tutorial level would do a lot to reassure potential customers when it comes to this game.

Re: Official New Star Trek 2012 Game for the PC, PS3 & X360

^^^After A:CM i promised myself no more pre-orders, but this being Star Trek and i have found myself sitting on the pre-order page on a few sites, but with very little to go on i have always stopped at the final stage before comfirming order.

I admit if there had been more info of late on this game or even word of a demo i would have went back on my promies not to pre-ordered.

Bloody Star Trek infects us like a virus which kicks in when certain phrases are said or read......New game, new movie, new ST plate. lol

Feels like their using the Gorn caste system from the books.

Shouldn't the Gorn look like they did on ENT? I like how the guy said they've only appeared once on Star Trek. Guess they forgot the ENT appearance.

Since ENT is in continuity with the new films, I just find it a little strange that the Gorn suddenly look so different.
Maybe its becuase these Gorn are supposedly from another galaxy, the regular Gorn might be different looking refugees who might not be as warlike as the other Gorn who just moved to this galaxy some time ago.

Interesting article.

Paramount gave the game developers the actual Enterprise blueprints to use!

Yeah... I'm not really inspired to pre-order due to the absolute lack of information and the price. I got XCOM:EU's collector edition for the price they're asking for.

I'm just weighing the odds that the game is tossed on a Steam sale a week after release that puts the price of the game + the pre-order DLC at less than the pre-order price.

That said, Amazon does have their PC preorders up at $53.99, so spam them with Steam's price so it'll go down. Hopefully, it'll go down from there, although I don't know if the pre-order DLC is included with Amazon's order.

I posted a Tweet from the game's official Twitter account that says the US only gets digital downloads.

Edit: Some news on game publicity:
At this very moment, we're sworn to secrecy on details -- but Star Trek fans of all kind will want to tune into Access Hollywood tonight!

Someone who gets to see it at a decent hour should watch and report (I can't, because it's apparently showing at ~2AM in my area for some reason).
