Welcome one and all to the 131st FileFront Weekly Insider!

It's that time of the week again, and I am back! :) Therefore we have listed all the major gaming happenings for you below, and remember, if you see something that you would like to be added to the Insider, or have a suggestion, simply drop us an E-Mail at The Insider! Apparently, the announcement that I had made in last week's edition was a bit premature...after The Insider went public I reveived some e-mails from some of the staff that did not agree with my decision to end the Staff Profiles...so, enjoy what we have to offer this week: "gdata"

  • DoB: November 23rd, 1991 Location: Germany Name on the Network/Forums: gdata It is a rather long story how I became a member of Filefront, but I will try to make it as short as possible: I always had the desire to make the games I played better than they used to be and a few years ago I discovered Filefront – at that point I considered it a mysterious English speaking site that would fulfil all of my modding dreams J. From then on I started downloading files, uploading PotDs and finally I ended up with making an own mod, which was about two years ago. So I began visiting Legacy Files regularly and after one of the staff members from STL Files left last year, I decided to apply for a position there and since then I review files, post your PotDs and News. I also founded a team together with a few friends of mine in 2007 and we still develop modifications for Star Trek Legacy and if I’m not busy with reviewing files, scripting missions or modelling in max, I check the forums and try to help users or other modders with their problems.

This week, we welcome back our very own IKS who brings us this week's editorial about an older game that is considered by some to be a classic!

Homeworld is and will always be the fricking bomb. Released when gaming was all about Playstation and Konami creating more snakes of different varieties, Homeworld was an masterpiece in storytelling. Even now, 2009, you play Homeworld from Mission 1 to Mission 16 for the first time and the game will stay with you for years.

The story is basically Battlestar Galactica. When Relic first began drawing up plans for this game they were attempting to do a Battlestar Galactica game but could not obtain the license to do such a game, so they created the universe of Homeworld. The story has striking similarities to BSG, your race is wiped out in one fell swoop and you are on the run in a ragtag fleet looking for the mythical homeworld. Its slightly different though, which is what is cool about Homeworld though any sci-fi fan will appreciate the storyline.

Its 10 years old, the graphics are old, pixelated and low res. But so what? The storyline, music sco
