Well, I broke down and transgressed my self imposed ban on new game purchasing and picked up Life is Strange: Before the Storm Deluxe Edition in the latest PSN sale. I had kind of been waiting on a physical release like the first game eventually had, but I don’t think that will happen. For only $13 digitally, (the Complete Season without the extra episode with Max is only $9 on sale) I couldn’t pass it up. And with Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit releasing next week as a free promotion to amp people up for LiS2, I also figure Dontnod aren’t going to also give away Before the Storm on PS Plus either. That was my justification anyway.

The early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Got a PSVR, very impressive and fun. Wipeout VR is an experience.

@LieutenantFatman I've been more and more tempted of late. I don't massively like being so removed from the room while playing - but that TNG Star Trek: Bridge Crew dlc is screaming at me to get VR. Resistance may very well be futile...

@KALofKRYPTON Until they bring out a VR simulator that allows you to lean on the various consoles at awkward-yet-awesome angles, I think I'm safe.

But I do know what you mean. Just as I'd decided NOT to get it, they went and did that.

@RogerRoger Riker, my absolute favourite Fed! Though Frakes has pulled out of Destination Star Trek again! The swine! lol

I like Bridge Crew, it's worth it even without VR. I do have to get a bit closer to the TV to play with a controller, but it is a good time.

@KALofKRYPTON I was torn between that .gif and joke, or saying something along the lines of "TNG could finally drag you into getting VR" and then posting this one...

...so I'm glad either would've included your favourite character! He's probably mine, too, at least from TNG. I love how he finds a way to be involved in every show. Always good to see him.

I've been on the fence about Bridge Crew for the longest time. When it became non-VR (despite never having tried VR, I just kinda know that it wouldn't be for me) I was sorely tempted, but finally decided against it. Then they announced the TNG stuff and I went on PSN with the intention of buying it, but then discovered that it isn't a free update like the Original Series stuff was; it's a £15.99 DLC pack. I'll always pay over the odds for anything Star Trek, but given that it's such a new type of experience and therefore a bit of a risk, it was enough to make me pause.

Show me a lower price tag in a sale, or add in Voyager's bridge and uniforms, and I'll probably have to surrender, but I reckon they'll do the Defiant first, or a tie-in with Season Two of Discovery. Neither of those would grab me enough.

@RogerRoger I half expected an image from 'The Game' haha!

The TNG update seems to have gone down very well, and also looks well worth it. The TOS ship is a great curio, but it's really, really hard to use - it even looks like a struggle in VR. Authenticity in that regard does come at a cost - and without having the help display annotating the controls, you're just pushing Jolly Ranchers hoping that it's the correct one!

I hope they do expand again - and I think they will. Given how well the TNG has gone down and the similarities that are inherent in the interface design, I'd expect Voyager and Defiant dlcs.

Hopefully, they can keep on building - perhaps bringing in alien races, perhaps even pvp ship to ship combat!

Discovery would be CBS's licensing choice at this point no doubt. But like you, I (and I reckon people playing the game) aren't interested in the blandness of the world in Disco. TNG is a dizzy height for their first dlc, so perhaps something like the Constitution refit/A/B/C would be a good road to travel.

@RogerRoger @KALofKRYPTON i would love a Voyager, DS9 & Enterprise DLC for Bridge Crew and i really want the Next Gen one but i feel it's a bit too expensive for what your getting, now if they added the other shows and put the price up to £20 it would be worth it but £16 just for one isn't

OH and a Movie Bridge pack too, with The Wrath of Khan, Final Frontier, Undiscovered Country, Generations and First Contact bridges in it

maybe an Alien pack too where you can Captain a Klingon or Romulan ship

as for Discovery, i'll be honest i don't mind it but don't care for it either, i'm kinda "meh" on it right now but aesthetically i don't think it would make a good bridge in the game anyway, they are far too big so they have a lot of dead space

@FullbringIchigo Well, I got Bridge Crew for less than £15 on sale.

At £11.99, the TNG pack gives you the new ship, the new Op's station (which looks to be a very welcome replacement for the standard engineering panel), all compatible with the previous Ongoing Voyages missions and new Ongoing Voyages modes for the Borg and the Romulans.

It's a good deal I think. Anyway, I have a voucher from Father's Day, so probably going to buy TNG. I'll let you all know how it is.

@KALofKRYPTON Looking forward to your report, sir.

Maybe as a smaller update, the Enterprise-A would be decent, and it certainly had clearer displays (heck, since they re-used the TNG sets, most of The Final Frontier already had LCARS all over the place). Or they could be brave and tell an original story for the Enterprise-B, since that's the flagship we know the least about (beyond Tuesday, of course).

You've also now made me want Jolly Ranchers. I hope they're still made!

@FullbringIchigo You make an excellent point about how massive the Discovery bridge is, and how much dead space there is between stations. My feeling would be that they'd include whatever the reimagined USS Enterprise bridge is gonna look like from the Season Two opening episodes, because it's gonna bridge the gap (pun semi-intended) and be familiar enough for casual fans to recognise it.

My primary concern is that TNG have already used the Borg alongside the Romulans as new content. With each bridge, they'll want to add show-specific challenges and alien adversaries; for DS9 (Cardassians or Jem'Hadar) and ENT (Suliban or Xindi) this would be easy, but for Voyager we're now left with, what... the Kazon? I'll defend that show to the hilt, and thought the Kazon were great, but I recognise that I'm in a minority. Maybe the Hirogen could provide a nice hide-and-seek set of hunting missions, but that's about it.

Still waiting for my authentic NX-Class bridge in Star Trek Online. Part of me not getting Bridge Crew yet is because I can wander around the Enterprise-D and Voyager already. Despite saying a Voyager DLC pack would push me over the edge, an NX-Class pack would probably do the same.

@RogerRoger for Voyager what about Species 8472, the Vaadwaur or some we never saw but know of like the Krowtonan Guard that Captain Ransom of the Equinox said his crew encountered

KALofKRYPTON

@RogerRoger Species 8472? Hirogen would suit the way the game is set up, and would certainly be a relatively easy implementation for the current Borg patrol mission structure (basically warp away until you can fight them).
I actually really liked the early Kazon stuff. As with almost every villain in Star Trek though, they were nerfed pretty quickly.

There is a lot of merit to having a tighter bridge in the game. I know TNG was supposed to look grandiose and almost decadent. But the smaller refit, A, B, C, E and Defiant style bridge suits the game and makes a lot more operational sense.

@RogerRoger @KALofKRYPTON i think it's pretty obvious that Discovery's Bridge was designed for cinematic shots first and foremost and to be fair it does work for that but 's not very practical if the helm officer is so far away you have to shout for them to hear you

@FullbringIchigo @KALofKRYPTON Hmm. Good call on 8472, but I never felt like they stood alone enough as villains. Every time they appeared, they were in service of another race's storyline (the Borg, the Hirogen) and the one time they appeared alone, peace was brokered inside of 45 minutes. Not only that, but they basically have one ship design and are ridiculously overpowered; two things that wouldn't translate well into "lone ship encounters and fends off multiple attackers" gameplay.

I agree that the Vaadwaur could be elaborated upon; I've always wished for a sequel to "Dragon's Teeth", as was teased at the end. They could even get Robert Knepper back for a cameo, now that he's a slightly bigger name.

From what I've seen of Bridge Crew, the Defiant's bridge would work really, really well. Voyager's bridge always felt built for widescreen, despite the show being presented in a 4:3 aspect ratio. Given the tiered design, there may be a little bit of neck pain if you're at the helm or in command, constantly looking back to tactical and ops!

@RogerRoger the Vaadwaur were quite a big story in Star Trek Online though

@FullbringIchigo Oh yeah - gritty BAFTA version of the Kelvinverse bridge style.

@RogerRoger 8472 were introduced as too powerful an adversary to keep around. They needed to either go away or get nerfed like everyone else.

Always disliked the Vaadwaur. Sat squarely in poorly imagined 'bad guys of the week' territory.

How about the Krenim?

@KALofKRYPTON at least the way the Kelvinverse stuff was designed made sense, they were films after all (no to mention CBS said paramount had to make it visually different from the show) but why Discovery did it in a similar and darker style is beyond me

@FullbringIchigo As you said. Cinematic shots and the like.

And a lot of the unspoken body language on the show probably wouldn't really work were the characters not so far apart and obscured from each others' view on the bridge.
