The one thing I wish they would add is destructible environment for MP. I don't care about leveling buildings but a guard rail should stop a tank

I am looking forward to it. I realize I am perhaps the only person on the planet looking forward to it...but hey.....the upside is that maybe it will be cheap!
No you aren't. I actually enjoyed the previous game. Even had fun in MP. The progression of the battlefield where everyone starts as a foot soldier and by the end of the game everyone was driving tanks and drones flying all over the place was a lot of fun.

Makes you wonder what kind of hardware specifically video card you'll need to run this game at a smooth 60fps.
Just running around in the hangar runs into the single digit frame rates for me at the moment with the GTX760 and 2Gb VRAM.
Hopefully they will do a lot of optimization before this comes out.

I hope the scale isn't that skewed. Look how HUGEGANTIC Rico is, especially compared to the pilot inside the cockpit! HAHAH!! That's just a really terrible mock-up job.

Hey thanks for the heads up Vall.
So I guess fuel scooping is a much better option than buying it

Had it not been on Origin, I bet the game would have done a lot better.
Yeah they've said something about learned their lesson about going console specific, so I think TF2 will be cross platform but not sure if EA will allow them to sell the game on Steam. I doubt it.
With that said if there are enough people enjoying this game I am sure TF2 will sell well on Origin.

This free DLC decision was a good one anyways. It's rare to see things like this these days from devs and publishers alike.
I personally have never seen CoD DLC go free.

I didn't fuck my city up (yet) but I remember waking up this morning thinking about how to upgrade my road system for better traffic flow, which I've tried during my morning coffee before work.
I can't wait to get home and play some more. Love the game.

I could only play a good 3 hours last night but I love it so far. The game keeps you constantly engaged and entertained. Always something to do, upgrade, re route, re zone etc.
Excellent game, can't wait to get home from work and play it.

Yeah not much use for that in game. Can't replace a throttle control and joystick combo. Best to have everything mapped to those.

I was thinking of using it as a keyboard replacement, while still keeping the joystick and throttle.

You could but other than actually typing messages to others you don't really use the keyboard. I personally don't use the keyboard at all.
On the other hand if you just need an excuse to get that toy, just get it, it will help in games!

Hour long, and no gameplay.
It's a bit strange, they have screenshots of the game but no actual gameplay footage.

Since '98 or '99, yeah. Hadn't really bothered with the comments section until very recently though, so no I really am not up to speed on the community. It certainly hasn't disappointed in the troll category.

As for the point of "the progress is slower than perhaps it should be" I just like to suggest that the only people who should have any say in that are the ones responsible for making it. Since that is not us, who are we to judge? There is no set formula for how long a game should take to create, in any genre.

The only constant is impatience and disappointment. People are certainly within their right to be impatient and be disappointed in how long it's taking. However, that is precisely what they signed up for if they pledged. It's up to each and every backer to have the patience to deal with an open development model.

I just try to imagine what the vitriol would be like for, say, Massive Entertainment if they were openly developing the (already delayed) The Division. But, they're under closed development, and thus beyond the reach of public trolling and constant scrutiny unless you happen to be the ones paying their bills.

While I agree that the combination of transparency and crowdfunding is causing most of the angst here, my point isn't to control the process but to point out that projects with long development cycles tend to be troubled. They can run out of money, lose focus, never settle on a scope, and lots of other problems. Most AAA games have development cycles of 2-3 years. We're 2.5 years in and nowhere near complete. I don't think this project is doomed to failure, but the delays are starting to get a bit worrying.
well said

Yet they are asking for feedback from players (so long as it's positive feedback).
Like I said before they should have been focusing on making a kick ass space dogfighting game and work on all the fps and landing on planets, dodgeball, ping pong, space gardening, fish tank stuff after as a dlc. But who am I to say how to develop games.

Ok, so basically what you are saying that if RSI fucks up and never releases anything anything at all and CR spends all that dough on Star Trek uniform ripoffs, fancy promo videos and a first person arena shooter with one map, no one gets a refund??
Noone can get a refund as it is anyways. Oh and speaking of arena shooter, you nailed that one according to the interview I linked earlier. They are currently working on this zero gravity madden style arena shooter, cuz you know why not.
