Did you ever play 'Drug Warz', the game that introduced a generation to the 'buy low, sell high' method of wealth attainment which probably led to the tragic american housing crash of 2008? Did you ever wish that you could have that very game wrapped up in a semi pointless 3D world you could navigate by clicking on someone's name to instantly teleport to them instead of walking all that distance? Did you ever wish that you could do all that and get to utilize those elite twitch shooter skills you gained through endless hours of Quake III Arena while all of your friends left you behind to obtain quality educations, well-paying jobs and loving spouses?
I know I did!
So when I came across Space Trader: Merchant Marine I knew I'd found the game for me. Marvel at the 2004 era graphics in a game that came out in 2008! (Same year as that housing market crash, I smell the NWO behind this) Throw your hands to the sky when you first break the 7-figure ceiling just by virtue of buying things when they're crashing hard because it's bound to bounce back in the next 48 hours!
Weep when you realize your job is terrible, you're lucky if you have thee figures in the bank and rent is coming due, the Illuminati forced the bank to foreclose on your house four years ago, (BECAUSE YOU KNOW TOO MUCH, DAMN IT!) and you aren't actually flitting between the stars flogging over priced Bananabis at every starport between Earth and Cygnus, you're sitting at your computer waiting to die.
9.5/10 it's okay from a gameplay persepctive.
1/10 for being a front for the Bilderberg group and secretly manipulating the masses, you foolish sheep.
