So if I preorder this game on Steam for $65 CDN I get to play it early! Wow. I guess the day0 DLC isn't enough to lure people in to buy CoD anymore, playing the game early definitely will!

I enjoy these videos but I am not sure how much of those features I'd notice while playing the game when there is no side by side comparison.

Defense Grid 2: How Not To Make A Sequel To A Beloved Game.
Feel your pain there. The story and voice acting is absolutely terrible. I normally don't care about stories in games like this but this one is so bad it distracts me.

Haha yeah I know I should dig it out.
I don't even remember the button layout I've had setup on it. Almost have to re learn everything.

No with my old Logitech Extreme 3D
The saitek is very accurate. Here are some of my practice runs with the X-55 a few days after I got it.

As pretty as the game is, it's the sound that makes me smile. I just love the purr of the engines as you speed up or slow down.

Yeah the sounds are awesome.
Tbh I haven't been playing beta 2 at all because I didn't have time and I've just moved so my X55 is still in boxes. I've installed beta 3 last night and hopefully I will give it a try soon.
There seems to be a lot of changes and improvements, and bugs of course as the game gets more complex.
But it is okay I know they will fix them up.

A good HOTAS can make a lot of difference and they do not have to cost an arm and leg either. I hear a lot of people likes this.
I am using a Saitek X-55 and after a week or so I've switched back to my old Logitech joystick and couldn't believe how inaccurate that was. Couldn't hit shit.

For those of you guys having trouble with combat. Just keep practicing. It takes a little time to get used to it but ones you get a hang of it, it is super satisfying to dogfight. I did have to dedicate a few nights to practice dogfighting but it's well worth it.
Things like a decent HOTAS and TrackIR will help but I have seen guys flying with kb/m and doing really well. Just practice practice practice.

Even if you are just planning to be a trader or any other non combatant in Elite, having the skills to fly your ship efficiently will benefit you on the long run. Even traders get intercepted by pirates and have to do a speed docking every ones in a while. Having the skills to out manuever and get away from pirates can make a difference between a big paycheque or a big hole in your wallet.

I had to pay $150.00 to play Alpha of Elite.
or $75.00 to play Beta.

I had to pay $35.00 to have Star Citizen Alpha/beta

what's the problem?
There is no problem and you didn't "have to" pay for anything you decided to do because you want to support the game devs to make the best game possible without the publishers input. Awesome!
With that said $150 for Elite was a far better investment than the $35 for SC

This is why you don't buy games when they are released. You buy them 6 months down the road all patched up with a bunch of DLC for half the original price.

The first comment on GoG cracked me up:

This is the game that made me a man. If you play this game and successfully complete all of the secret Emperor missions then you, too, will be a man, my son.
Yeah I was just reading that comment too, pretty funny.

I am not a huge fan of this pixel art style either but there are a few games that are really awesome and this pixel art style fits them, like Revenge of the Titans for example.
This game looks interesting, I might pick it up on sale down the road.

Public games are going to be a shit show either way. Just like with L4D if your team mates do not work with you, might as well play CoD instead.

Another Over hyped game relying on passed successes, nothing new nothing innovating. Would rather still be hidden HL mod than this shit.

Basically same candy with another colour.
I wouldn't be able to tell this much from the system specs but good info thanks

Yea I was going of topic but just watch and see how the game will turn out. I am glad you care hopeful I saved you soul and money.
I was just sarcastic but I know what you mean.
Hopefully the game will turn out alright but it is a wait and see for me.

overall its a fantastic game and story, some of the best characterization in a video game so far.
I think that is one of the staples of Naughty Dog. I've always enjoyed their games.
