One word: YES! Personally, though, I would've picked better shots of the monsters and characters for the trailer. It still looks good, anyways.Continue

Unexpected Dieselpunk?

Unexpected Dieselpunk?Art Deco and decidedly diesel themes seem to crop up in the strangest places. Here's the oddest one I've found.Note: I am intentionally leaving all dieselpunk/ steampunk themes as seen in Doctor Who and Torchwood out of this post (digging through 40+ years of Whovian lore to make a complete list).This brings us to... My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.The character Rainbow Dash is the best example of a dieselpunk trope appearing out of nowhere, complete with goggles and a…See More

Gaming and Identity

A discussion with a gamer friend of mine came up earlier today- how gaming has impacted our lives and personality. I grew up playing Star Wars and MechWarrior with my brother, turning towards RPGs and adventure games as I we grew older. Some of my favourite games- Crimson Skies, Fallout, and the like- have had a strong effect on my life.Gaming initially provided a refuge from the bullying of childhood, but moved me to take an interest in art, computers, engineering, history, storytelling,…See More

A Shy Hello

Hello, everyone! My name's Taylor, and I'm so excited to have *finally* joined the forum (now that I have time, being out of school). Anyways, since I'm a newcomer, here's a bit about me. I'm a recently graduated high school student, going to study computer science and art in the fall. I live in the Greater Chicago area, and have a passion for gaming and reading. My dream- someday- is to be able to make video games. I have a quiet DeviantArt profile (still improving on my art) under the name…See More

Very true.

From memory, and as I mentioned briefly on the discussion page; Jordan Weisman's current company, Smith & Tinker, have licensed from Microsoft the rights to several FASA titles (Crimson Skies, Shadowrun, and MechWarrior/BattleTech included). I'm not sure if this last part is correct, but I could've sworn I recall reading that they only have this until 2015. MechWarrior is the next thing planned, so it seems.
Smith & Tinker has been around since early 2007, but thus far they've only created one game (which was a online battle card game aimed at a younger audience, released around mid-2009 and closed around late last year). Hopefully something comes from them soon, as it's kinda sad they've had nothing much to show thus far.

Understandable.

Unfortunately many of the other Crimson Skies fan pages aren't around any more, or just aren't updated (not that I guess there's much to be updated about). I like to think the Facebook fan page is like the main place of community for CS fans. -shrugs-

Great to find another Crimson Skies fan!

Are you on the fan page?
