You know, sometimes you can get excited about a new computer game, but then you find out that one thing that makes you decide never to touch it. Earth and Beyond looked like it would be a really cool massively multiplayer space based game. I heard about it several months ago and was seriously considering buying it. Then I read the FAQ and it says that it does not support joysticks. I did a little more digging and find out that the spaceflight model is only 2 dimensional, so no Z axis. What kind of dumbass designers came up with this? Is the lack of a Z-axis supposed to help me with the total immersion factor? Hopefully the space flight portion of Star Wars Galaxies will get it right.
