    It seems like a very promising and developmental game, but it doesn't seem too soon to ask for a screenshot or some other view of the game itself.
    I'd like to see the interface and graphics...

  7. Seems Good...but....thay Thing comes from US and The Navy...so that means War and Control...this game its another step to control the humand kind (no conspiracy Theory bcuz this really looks like that)...They will use it for good things and all the other things.
     
  8. I'm wondering if there will be a side project named "BBALOO"
     
  9. I get to live my real life, ( NAVY not Pirate), in a game, very surreal.. This better be a game worthy of people they plan to portray..

    i you want to get some real experience why not join the navy, its where i got my 3, and 1/2 years of experience. besides this is going to be used as a training tool for people in the us navy anyway. nothing beats OJT (on the job training). not to say that i still get sea sick on boats though...

    As long as you promise not to give letters of marque to the pirates and set them off against Spanish shipping.

    So you should be able to swab decks, hot bunk, and have same-sex marriages in game?

    How would the American elite make any money without a war?

    No more Bin laden?
    No problem!
    Impoverished Somali pirates are the new great evil (joining ancient harmless beneficial plant called cannabis).
