Downloading the Amazon pre-order (it's a Steamworks game BTW). Gonna play for a while once it gets done (assuming I don't need to fiddle with Pinnacle too much).
How large is the total download?

Have to wait til the end of the day to play the game. My Gamestop said I was smart to preorder because they didn't get many copies of the game. I really can't see any good signs from that.
Mine had a whole stack of them when I came in to pick up my pre-order.
I just picked mine up and Gamestop told me I really should have preordered, since they probably wouldn't have any. He opens the drawer, and it's completely full

I bought it off Steam today, and have played a bit of it, and I really like it. It's very fun!

Not that big - 8GB total.

I totally agree. The only janky part was getting stuck in the upgrade menu until I spent some XP (but that might have been my Pinnacle profile). There's even a second set of keybinds if you want to play split-screen co-op on the PC (which is totally fucking awesome).

The only bad thing is that there's no .INI files that control whether the damn pre-menu logos play, so you have to sit through them every time you start up the game.

Yes, there's a ready room(?) on deck one that Kirk and Spock leave to go to the bridge.

If it's at the beginning, I thought that was Spock's quarters? I ran into one glitch at New Vulcan where Spock simply refused to come over and help me open the first door. He just stood there phaser in hand looking at me. Had to restart from the last checkpoint.

Yeah I can tell they put in a great deal of effort into this game. It's a few hairs away from being a AAA game!

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

I rented the PS3 version from a Redbox up the street from where I live this morning. I played up the Gorn attack on the Federation station, and so far I'm loving it. It plays kind of like a combination of the Arkham and Mass Effect games. I'm playing as Spock, and I have to admit I did make a nerdy little squeal the first time I nerve pinched somebody. I'm hoping to start a co-op game playing as Kirk once my mom gets off work.
Does anyone know who voices T'Mar? She sounds familiar, but I can't find any cast lists that includes non-movie characters. I tried watching the credits but it just had the movie cast and then additional voices.

The first mission where you're using the Enterprise to fight the Gorn is pissing me off!

i wish i could play it. i've been trying to get it to run on my PS3 for the last 40 minutes. I get past picking Kirk, and then the game just keeps locking up on the loading screen.

Possibly a bad disc?

I've played about two hours so far (on PC) and I must say that I'm not impressed and not holding out much hope.

How do you do the danged space mission? Tactical view seemed absolutely worthless.

Oh, and does engineering look like the brewery or did they build the concept engine room the film couldn't afford?
What little I've seen so far looked like the scenes towards the end of the film (where the warp cores are ejecting); that might have been the brewery too, but at least it wasn't as off-putting as the earlier scenes with the communications vats and the coolant pipe...

Definitely not the concept engine room.

What the heck? Why is the 360 version only 3.7 GB?

That's the game assuming you followed the "open the upgrade menu" tutorial prompt, and are continuing that tutorial.

Compression and probably less resolution assets. This game supports some real weird resolutions.

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

Ive been playing coop with my girlfriend all night. God damn was that space mission hard. The tactical thingy was really hard to grasp, and we must have died about 10 times before we finially got past it. And that damn part with the shields...ugh.

We stopped after that for tonight. Other wise the game has been really fun, lots of great Kirk/Spock banter. Plus the whole cast doing the voice over work...awesome.
