I previously alluded to the fact that the most common form of death in the X-Universe is death by incineration from plasma burst generators. Well the second most common death is due to overconfidence. In a regular style game, if you die, you can curse a few times and reload an earlier safe, hoping you didn’t lose too much progress. In a dead is dead game, if you die, its game over.
So here I am, hugging a space station for dear life while deadly combat drones buzz and swarm nearby trying to get some pot shots at me due to a moment of weakness and me being over confident. Look on the bright side, at least I’m not dead yet.

X3: Terran Conflict, or X3TC for short, is the latest game set in the X universe made by Egosoft. The best way to describe X3TC is a sandbox style free-roaming game in a universe that is connected by a series of jump gates. Although the player starts out small, they can eventually be in control of an empire that spans the entire known galactic space with fleets of ships and hundreds of sector spanning factory complexes. The last time I played X3TC was version 1.5. Since then, Egosoft has be steadily adding patches and content into the game, which is now up to version 3.1. Eager to jump in to discover the new missions and content, I’ve decided to fire up the game once again and log my adventure.
