This video shows an early build of Fatal Parsec showing the Utility Beam in action. In this video, the player (me) grabs a couple asteroids and throws them around a bit.
I feel that it is probably worth noting that most of the sound effects, music, and even graphics are temporary, and will probably be changed before the final release.
It seems as if almost everything came together this last week and I am very excited about it all. My xbox 360 is back in the house, and my initial tests with Fatal Parsec are coming along well.
2008 was a tough year, and 2009 is even worse so far. Thousands of layoffs, economies crashing, financial uncertainty abounds... It's a pretty fantastic time to be a gamer.
