Meet people from all over the world... then kill them.
That line pretty much sums the mission up for SUBSPACE, an old favourite of mine and widely considered to be an early entry into the massive multiplayer online (MMO) craze, thanks to its more unprecedented than usual player count... not to mention inspiration for SOE's Infantry and Cosmic Rift. And thanks to the free Continuum Client, doing that statement is free, your time, your Zone, your ship, your victim... your call.
Ever imagine what it'd be like to play Asteroids against your friends? Want to savor the satisfaction of blasting people out of space in some addictive side-scrolling 2D spaceship shooter action?
Slap on some snazzy graphics, guns, bombs & big explosions and the beautiful revelry of flying past your enemy's debris as they cuss at you, and you have Continuum, the longest running massively multiplayer spaceship shooter game running today.
Still not enough to get you into the mix? Then this Subspace intro by its original developer, Virgin Interactive Entertainment (VIE), will give you one devilishly awesome 3D spacefighting - and a good idea of how UGLY things can get in the Subspace universe, one in an eternal Deathmatch chaos with neither beginning nor end:
Once you had your healthy dose of space rage, then you know the drill: go to http://www.getcontinuum.com/, download the Client, create your Profile, pick your ship, a Zone... and get your outer space frag on, pilot. Space is an infinite place - and yet there's no place to hide, and when the time for Deathmatch comes, you will know what to do.
WARNING: Constant exposure to this dangerously addictive space shooter action MMO game can lead to severe, irrecoverable starship combat addiction most extreme!
