    Taikodom - Elite successor?

    This seems to be a nice game for sci-fi and space simulation fans. Have a look at their homepage here.

    Very interesting. From the screenshots it looks like it has taken a lot of ideas from Earth and Beyond (an old favourite of mine as you know) and Freelancer, as well as loads more. Looking really good! The official site's videos show off the game very nicely and it looks like it has some very nice graphical effects.

    I'm downloading the beta now to try it out.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    This looks fantastic!

    I can only hope that it plays as good as it looks!!!


    I absolutely Adore space sims.... however, I am a little disolutioned over X3 so somthing would be nice to bring me back unto the genere

    I loved tachyon the fringe! bruce camble is one of my acting heros!

    Freespace was awesome

    but none of these have that .... Eliteness about them!!!!

    even X beyond.... its was almost there..... but then ... well there was something missing.... alas it took half the game towork it out.
    If i had a hammer, I would hammer in the morning, i would hammer in the evening, i would hammer all day

    The X series is definitely complex, with a steep learning curve.

    Did you ever play Earth and Beyond? I used to love that online game and have missed it ever since it's server was shut down.

    I've downloaded the client for this one and will be trying it out later tonight. Fingers crossed it is as good as it looks.
