Was this on console first? Was it really that bad?
Yep, it was an xbone exclusive...

Well at least Yerli can't complain it didn't sell because of piracy then.
Oh I am pretty sure he was whining about PC piracy of RYSE before the PC port was even finished.

the "advanced dogfighting" tutorial schooled my ass. I suck. I figured out pretty quickly that lower velocity = tighter turn radius but I still seem to manuever like a drunken whale and have trouble even getting the enemy into my sights.
It will take a bit to learn and master the flight controls.
I have a button on my joystick mapped to turn off flight assist for example and I usually start the turn then shut off flight assist as my ship drifts in one direction and it is spinning around at the same time than flip back flight assist to regain control and go after the baddies.
I use that technique in this video

Just give it time, everyone has to go through that learning process, but trust me ones you get it, dogfighting will be by far the most entertaining part of this game.
You can literally re live dogfighting scenes from movies like Star Wars. Hiding behind asteroids to break visual contact, etc.
Tons of fun.

Surprisingly, the starting menu has no ads. Hop one page over, yeah, ads for games, movies n dlc.
I still do not find that as bad as the 360 was.
I didn't care much for customization on the 360, but at least it is nice of them to allow stuff like this.
Next up should be allowing voice and/or video messages to be sent to friends. You know stuff that was there for years for the 360.

You assholes.

You finally talked about E:D enough that I caved and picked up the beta.

It's downloading at home now.
You won't be disappointed. It really is an amazing game. I haven't been this excited for a game in the past 10 years at least.
I mean what other space sim game looks this awesome

News Comments > F1 2014 Trailer
1. Re: F1 2014 Trailer Oct 9, 2014, 08:27 SpectralMeat
 
GRID Autosport and this F1 not being out on the next gen consoles isn't really helping them.
Every platform they release this game for already have last years F1 game and this isn't so much different from that.
There isn't any F1 games on the next gen consoles so I think this would have sold way better on there if they would have took a year off and just make the game running on those systems.

I know they are working on an F1 game for the next gen consoles which is due out next year but I don't see the point of releasing this now and then another game in a few months.

I am waiting for a good racing game on the PS4. Maybe The Crew,
Based on the beta, I wouldn't hold my breath for that one.
Project cars would be a better bet at a decent racing game, if they can fix the Ai before release

Maybe they shouldn't promote people who are clueless about Battlefield to be community manager and then producer of the game.

With idiots like that working for you it's pretty hard to take your game seriously when the people working for your company don't.

It is interesting to see David Goldfarb's replies. He worked on BF3, his response "re installing BFBC2"

By the way in case you were interested he uses a joystick to fly ED, here is his setup
The TrackIR helps a lot to track the targets though

Yeah, I was watching that dogfighting video someone posted the other day and my first through was "I wish I could fly like that."

I've posted that, and he put in quiet a bit of time to fly like that.
It does take some time but it is very satisfying to master those skills, and the death penalty isn't so terrible in starter ships so I don't think it is frustrating to learn

seriously, the audio for warping in ED.... it'll give you the chills, especially when you come out.
Yep, it kicks ass
So is the gameplay, I don't think youtube videos give it justice.

The Forza killer, another prime example of publisher's $ spent on reviews

It has a 72 on metacritic and a 62 user score. That's pretty close. How are you presuming they bought reviews?
I was quoting the PR text from the latest trailer "Forza killer"

I've read the GiantBomb review today and it doesn't sound quiet Forza killer to me, but anyways.

2 years and 56 million dollars later and Star Shitizen is nowhere remotely close to being in sight.

Probably 2 more years and who knows how much more money to wrap this up.

On the subject of Elite Dangerous, will I be able to play singleplayer, or at least host my own private server?

That's about all I want from ED. Not really interested in the multiplayer aspect so I hope the single player is not gimped in any way.
Yes you will be able to play ED in single player, not sure about hosting your own game though but I know you can limit your MP game to friends only.

I had zero issues with the BF4 launch.

But maybe that's because I refuse to use Origin and thus never tried to play it. Still, no issues.

Which patch did you use to get this experience!?!
It is a well known patch called "I ain't buyin` shit that requires Origin"
