Always online DRM?
They've never bothered to patch that out of the old one.

Is that PC gaming alliance thing still around?
This Microsoft statement reminds me of that.

There are quite a few little things that they can do which they steadfastly refuse to do.

They do not have to do anything. For them there is no money in pc gaming.

In console gaming on the other hand they have their greedy hand in everything from hardware to software, royalty fee after every single copy of game sold, annual fee for mp gaming, buying new hardware, or any kind of accesory for your console, controllers, etc.
They make money on all those things, while not a dime on the PC.
It is pretty obvious why they don't give a flying fuck about pcgamers and they would love to see everyone with a PC gaming rig to migrate to the bone instead.
That's where all the hardcore XxXgamerzXxX are anyways.

I've always loved it when the devs justification to a 10Gb day 1 patch involves "making the game compatible with DLC"

Well it was a kickstarter project, which for games on kickstarter not having a publisher is pretty much the gist of the entire thing...
Yes I know but not all kickstarter games make it.
I am just glad he was able to stick to his guns and not getting any publishers involved and get the game founded.

Beta 2 comes out tomorrow.

Good for Braben.
I'd hate to see an Elite Dangerous game that was aimed at the 13-18 years old CoD crowd.

If they go under I wonder how/if that will effect the development of Star Citizen.

X Rebirth is on the 9PM est flash sale...for $25 lol. Gonna wait till next summer sale after more patching and get it for 5 dolla.

Yeah, do not buy that for 25 bucks. It's in no way, shape or form worth more than $2.50.

I was going to say the same thing, no way its even worth 5$

Maybe crytek should ensure all their titles including latest Crysis are sold on Steam and not be exclusive to EA crappy store,
Unfortunately that is not Crytek's decision. It is their publisher's which in this case is EA.

I don't know if you follow Alan and his Team VVV on youtube but he has a pretty good set of videos of the preview build.
He runs a triple screen setup on his PC.
He is a super nice guy and usually replies to any questions or concerns on his youtube videos or on Twitter.
His channel is my go to place for all the racing game coverage.

Another good place to look is Inside Sim Racing for Grid Autosport preview.

Like I said the game will probably be fun, but the Ai at the moment looks pretty flaky, and on top of that with the amount of games I have in my backlog I am not sure I am ready to dive into another Grid game.
The last one left a terrible taste in my mouth.
You know what they say, fool me ones shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

USTS?

As for Grid yeah it looks promising on paper but I'll see ones the game is out how it is.
From all the preview vids I've seen the Ai is pretty terrible. I know the preview build is not final but still it should be somewhat decent at least.

Yeah that's usually the way most joystick threads ends up.
You guys should get a kick out of some of those threads on the Elite forums when guys start talking about lubing and farting noises. Rotfl

If any of you guys are thinking of ordering that HOTAS nin linked from amazon, do not buy it yet as that price is not the amazon price.
The normal price is $40 or $35 something along those lines.
The price that shows on amazon is a different seller not amazon.

One other thing I did not mention to nin is that with that Thrustmaster HOTAS you will not have enough buttons to control everything in Elite. There are just a shit ton of stuff to control from weapon systems to power distribution, targeting, landing gears, cargo scoops etc etc.
I've read people on the Elite boards are using voice attack to map the functions that they can not onto the controller.

I believe it is a twist stick, so rudder control is pretty natural.
I was thinking about getting the CH stick and throttle combo, I've heard they are top notch quality but the lack of twist stick made me change my mind.

I was wondering why you haven't said anything about Elite.
New update coming out on the 24th next Tuesday, new systems a new cargo ship and new station type.
All the details in the newsletter
Also you can take 4k screenshots even if your screen rez is set to 1080p.
Those 4k screenies look awesome in the newsletter.

Yeah how hard is it to launch a DLC without issues?

For EA? Holy shit, it's apparently like coming up with the Grand Unification theory for them. I don't think ANY of the DLC released for either Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 2 or Mass Effect 3 worked right out of the gate.
I don't play many EA games so I didn't know. Oh well.
Good luck to the poor folks that dished out the $60 for the preorder I guess.

It sounds like they feel that, for the first time, they're actually not gimping anything.

Didn't the head of Ubisoft said the same thing about Watch Dogs?
PC is the lead platform etc etc.
Same shit different game
