    Do we need how many "episodes" will be release in a year? I am happy to see that SG franchise is not as dead as it seems. Maybe that will be a sign that it can be revived from the coma state. On the other hand I don't like the marketing campaign. They want to release this game but they announce it only one month ago? Even the fans didn't become too excited here, because I expected there will be much more posts. Hmmm, come on gaters, SG-1 is going to return!

    Until in this GAME VERSION of SG-1. Now it's red. I don't see the big deal.

    /Facepalm. Go re-watch the movie, its not white just fading back out. I chose that scene for a reason, now stop making yourself sound like a Prim'ta and actually have an argument instead of just try to discredit mine.

    For the record I was in the alpha and beta of Stargate Worlds. What's your point? The devs showed an honest love for Stargate. While some of the story elements were a bit hoaky, they never step all over the simplest things of established cannon.

    Can't be Bastet, we have already seen her in the show and she looked nothing like the Goa'uld in the trailer. Plus someone already pointed out that the Goa'uld in the trailer had a silverish Kara Kesh, which means underlord, not system lord.

    THIS JUST IN; In Star Wars Episode VII Lukes Lightsaber is now orange instead of green! How well do you think that would fly?

    Or here's a better one. Instead of being called the Zat'nik'tel, it's now the Zat'nik'tek. It's one small change, I don't see the big deal!

    I am all for expanding the story and characters in new ways, introducing new system lords, new alien races, new technology. To get something as so basic as the eye glow, or color of the staff plasma wrong is just inexcusable.

    I did look at the movie. It's white fading out. The eyes in the image you posted aren't even yellow. Or for the sake of argument, for get the eyes, what about the chevrons? In the movie they're grey, in the series they're red. It really doesn't matter.

    They made up all sorts of stuff for the game that did not strictly conform to what we know of the lore, and quite rightly. I don't see how that is any different from these devs inventing blue plasma staffs, or giving a Goa'uld red glowing eyes. It doesn't explicitly contradict any canon, so what's the problem? It's trivial. It really doesn't matter.

    When was that ever established in the show? I would advise against using Stargate.wikia as a source, they make all sorts of stuff up. Also, hair colour can change, or hell, she could have just found a new host.

    If it is "white fading out" what exactly is it fading out to? Since the cornea of the eye is already white, please enlighten me as to how white is fading to white.

    But since you are wrong anyways, here is a color sample of the screen I did in photoshop:
    Ra Eye Color Sample

    I admit it is not "yellow" but it sure as netu isn't red or white. You really need to shut up about this, it doesn't get any more conclusive than that.

    It's generally accepted that there is a discontinuity between movie and show. We all know that 7 chevrons is a interstellar address, that the gate doesn't have the swirly bit behind it (black holes not withstanding), etc. etc.

    My point is that here we have something that is a core symbol of Stargate, like lightsabers are for star wars, or photon torpedo's for trek. You don't go messing with the core imagery of an established universe. Remember when Lucas messed with the core imagery of a sci-fi universe? One word for you: midi-chlorians.

    Were you in the alpha/beta? Did you play what story missions were available, take part in the dev chats, in game ask the asgard events, and all the other stuff? Like I said not every story element was perfect but it didn't step all over something as basic as the goa'uld eye flash.

    As far as the main story of Worlds the only major contradiction (that I remember) was that the milky way plague was the fault of the Asgard. We all know it was the Ori, but keep in mind when the devs of Worlds wrote that, we didn't have the Ori plague yet.

    Never directly stated however:
    System Lords:
    Hathor
    Heru'ur
    Under lords:
    Osiris
    Toth
    Khonsu

    Not sure how it works entirely, since it has never been directly stated, just implied in the props. Klorel and Amaunet also having gold Kara Kesh's. That could be explained by them being "royalty" but once again nothing was ever directly stated on the show.

    Find me an article that they have just "made up". I have friends who have had some involvement with that site and it is taken very seriously.

    True. Wish we could just get some confirmation from the devs about whats going on in the trailer. I am not the only one who has been very vocal about these inconsistencies.


    I would also like to point out that once again, you have done very little to counter my arguments, and instead tried to discredit them. You are making a serious mikta of yourself Senator Kinsey.

    It's fading out to the colour of his eyes, which given the lighting, is the colour you found in photoshop. Just look at his skin in that picture, it's essentially just a darker version of that. And by the way, you probably won't last long on this forum telling people to "shut up".

    I know what your point is, I just disagree. The colour of the eye glow is not iconic, it's randomly flitted between white and orange and every shade in-between and most people either don't notice or don't care. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I bet if you made a poll about it the majority of people would not be particularly bothered.

    Actually, we don't know where the plague from. It's only ever been hinted at that it was the Ori. On the issue of canon though, personally I'd say messing around with story canon is much worse than messing around with things as superficial as eye colour or plasma colour.

    I've never seen them make up whole articles, but I have seen them speculate and embellish a lot, not to mention weave sources like the RPG and other games that are not considered canon relative to the series into articles about things that are.

    that's *really* nice to know that sally malcolm is the writer for this, b/c that at least gives me hope that there's sam/jack ship in it!

    i'm not a gamer, and games in general seem to focus on adventure and more male dominated interests. if this game does, indeed, have sam/jack ship...

    I really hope this game series does well and MGM & Spyglass resurrect the SG franchise I don't have a smart phone and only a few games mostly on FB I play so probably won't play it myself but I hope it does well

    This makes me happy. I have an ipad and I so will be buying this. I too was a little disappointed those other 2 games got cancelled.

    The trailer is great. *so excited*

    New information about the enemy from the game, Sekhmet, from Arkalis Interactive's Facebook page. So it appears that she wasn't killed off by the NID after all...


    https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?f...count=1&ref=nf

    HEY! STARGATE FANS! News about Sekhmet our evil Goa’uld !

    Sekhmet, presents herself as the Egyptian goddess of war (Lion Head). At the height of Goa’uld power she was imprisoned on Earth for inciting rebellion against Ra. Thousands of years later she escaped, only to discover that the Goa’uld had been destroyed by the Stargate Command. Bent on vengeance, Sekhmet has sworn to restore her power and the glory of the Goa’uld empire.

    The life like doesn't really look like them, but for an ios game I wouldn't expect a lot of detail and accuracy. But as I'm desperate for any thing new in the Stargate universe, I'm still looking forward to this.

    It is cool to see different Jaffa armors in a Stargate product. There were such nice plans in Stargate : Worlds, but then that MMORPG was cancelled. There were non-canonic descriptions in the SG RPG books as well. I always wanted to see a lion or an atilop headed Jaffa guards which reflects back to mythology. I love these giant lion statues near the stargate.

    On the other hand. I am bit sad to see that the SG fandom is not excited about this game at all. Has everyone left the GW? I expected a bigger buzz, but maybe the lifecycle of the fandom has really reached its own end.

    Any guesses as to when this game takes place in the canon?

    I have been thinking about it, and the information provided about Sekhmet would suggest that it was set Season 8, but the fact the General O'Neill is a Colonel in the game, General Hammond is in the game, and that Teal`c has no hair would suggest that it takes place during Season 7 or earlier. But then there's the fact the team are using MP5s instead of the P90 used in later seasons...

    Maybe it's best not to give myself a headache overthinking these things, and just enjoy the game for what it is...

    i 'think' a lot of ppl feel what i feel on the franchise, which is we'd rather have something live with the sg1-atlantis-sgu characters. movie, mini series, or new series.

    this is just a cartoon made for a game.
