Next Gen is a meaningless phrase.
Oh no no no, next gen is a very meaningful phrase my friend.
It means many or all of the things below:

-Day 1 DLC
-Season Pass
-$60 base game
-preorder for "limited edition" (while supplies last)
-low graphical fidelity for the PC port so the "next gen" consoles can run the game at 30fps
-optional mouse and keyboard support
-FOV=55
-quick time (button mashing) action sequences
-press A to start
-always online

I am sure there are plenty more "next-gen" game features in AAA titles these days, but you get the idea.
See Watch Doge from Ubisoft for a recent example of a "next gen" title

Hope he can pull it off, but the closer he gets to completion I think the more and more complex problems he will run into which will take longer time to fix.
His mid 2014 seemed a bit too optimistic for release date anyways.

Thanks for the guides and stuff. I appreciate it guys.
I think I just have to dedicate some time to learn this game and I should be fine.
I did play other 4X games before, Endless Space was one of my favorites.

Civ V is pretty user friendly as is. Was there something getting in the way of you understanding the mechanics, or was it simply a case where you understood the game but just didn't enjoy playing it that much?
It's been a while since I've tried it so I can't really tell you exactly what it was.
One of these days I should fire it up again and see what happens
I've started watching some "let's play" vids on youtube too but most people are so good at this game they click around so fast I have no clue wtf is going on so not really helpful in a "tutorial" way.

Did you turn off the advisers and encyclopedia??
I might

So you're a REAL man then! Salute
Well obviously not because I can't seem to get into the game. Maybe it is just not for me, but it does peak my interest so maybe I should try harder

I've tried so many times to get into this series but I couldn't.
Wonder if this one will be any more n00b friendly than Civ5 was.

Is anyone from here playing this? How is it?
I've never played any of the previous ones.

I remember Dice saying that Battlefield wouldn't be a yearly franchise because it would hurt the quality. Times have changed
Yep they've said that last October when BF4 came out.
I find it hard to believe that Dice had no idea about Hardline being developed 9 months ago.

Because people are buying new ships, and upgrading from ships they've originally bought.
If you check their stores they have ship upgrade options from the basic $40 up to the 300i or any of the other ships.
That is where all the money comes from. There are also new backers but it is not hard to see where they focus their effort as far as development goes.
When they've announced the delay of the Arena Commander they've also released a new "commercial" video for a ship and it's variant.
Wish they would stop working on ship designs and commercial and focus on the actual game instead but that will not happen. That would be like ask them to stop taking money from people.

Their ships are fantastically modeled & detailed,
That is their main focus because that is what brings the $ in at this stage.
Gameplay vise they can say oh it is pre alpha to shut people down that criticize or compare this game to Elite for example, however Elite felt fucking awesome to fly since Alpha 1.0 and they've just kept on fine tuning it and making it even better every single step of the way.

SC on the other hand is like ok now the Arena Commander is finished out the door we can start working on something else on the list of the 286 billion features we've promised.
I absolutely hate the flight model in SC.
Someone on this forum said it feels like you are trying to control a bathtub sliding down the side of the mountain, and that is exactly what the ships feel like in SC.
Yeah yeah it is pre alpha whatever
