I did rather well last week, 10-6, but the week before was atrocious. It seems that no matter how well I do, there's really no way I'm going to make up those first few weeks where I went with my 'gut instinct' against the 'experts' and lost horribly (like 2-14 horribly) and now I sit comfortably at the bottom in 31st place...forever... Sigh

My buddy with premium tells me the DLC isn't very good and seems pretty low effort. No serious levolution (what a dumb word), little to no destructibility except in middle points of a few maps and lots of imbalance in high ground vs low. Sounds like cherry picking the good DLC instead of Premium is the way to go.

The maps are huge but seriously lack any effort in terms of new assets, they didn't put any new structures or buildings. I've only played the maps in rush mode so far, they seem to be designed around the 24 player limit on last gen consoles and not 64 player limit on the new ones or the PC.

The DLC isn't looking too good, they have one pack that's dedicated to naval combat. Unless that brings some sort of Titan mode with aircraft carriers it's going to suck. I think as soon as the remake of Metro comes out it's going to turn into 24/7 Metro for most servers just like Nuke Town does for Call of Duty.

Fuckin' Metro...I HATE that damn map with a passion! Get on one with 60+ players and you can HEAR the front from a mile away and good luck if you get close...then good luck GETTING OUT without getting blown to bits! *shudder* No, that's not what I call 'combat', that's a fucking boxing match! Now put me on the Caspian Border and I'll be a happy...uh...camper...

I got BF4 as a gift and while I was happy not having to pay for it, I can't believe some of the glitches that exist in this 'AAA title'...the funniest for me was the second SP mission, when you go up the tower to 'rescue VIPs' and the game crashed before I got to the building, so when I fired it up again, loading the level dropped me IN FRONT OF THE BUILDING, no where NEAR my guys (they were still running over the roof of the building across the street) and since I didn't know where they were and didn't know where they went (I could still HEAR them and see their sub-titles though, go figure), I ran around to the sliding doors and went in the building to go up the elevator. Well, rounding around the corner, the elevator part HADN'T LOADED YET because my guys hadn't gotten there yet and I wasn't SUPPOSED to be there yet, so I go through this huge HOLE in the wall and drop into a HUGE PIT in the middle of nowhere, where the textures had been stretched down (I guess where they fit the elevator's when they actually LOAD) and I couldn't do or go anywhere but I could watch everything going on up above (as if I fell through the level but...didn't). I finally saw my guys running into the building and as they went around the corner... .... .... ...the game crashed.

You want to know what's sadder is the fact that they keep doing it because PEOPLE KEEP BUYING IT! Stop buying this shit and they won't do it! Look what happened with 'episodic gaming', was supposed to be the 'next big thing' but no one went for it after Half Life Episode 2 and SiN's first episode, so they dropped it. If consumers would just do the same fucking thing to 'micro-transactions' then they'd drop that too...

News Comments > Entire Wing Commander Series Now on GOG.com
18. Re: Out of the Blue Nov 21, 2013, 15:53 Rigs
 
I second (third?) the Wing Commander Saga recommendation! They did a really, really good job with it and it's very authentic. They stay true to the series and explore things that weren't in the games originally but feel like they could have been. The one thing I noticed (and loved!) was that the ships have weight to them...structure, they feel like big, metal objects in space, especially when you're shooting them to pieces! Parts get smashed, plasma and 'smoke' gets vented into space (rather like Starlancer, actually)...they feel like the real thing. To be honest, they feel more 'real' than they did in Wing Command Prophecy. At least for me. The graphics are great and use the FS2 engine to it's limits. (Amazing that an engine that came out in 1998 is still turning heads in 2013!) You get to pilot familiar old ships while also encountering new, but 'series-appropriate' vessels. The best thing? It's freakin' FREE! Every WC fan should download and try it at least once...trust me, you won't regret it!

Whilst super for them, it means sweet FA to me and many others who really wanted to see HL3 instead of a remake of a 15 year old game we can all play blindfolded made with an outdated engine - and they're charging for it. Knock yourself out however.

I'm not here frequently, but I don't think I've ever seen you say anything positive that wasn't immediately overshadowed by a really negative comment. You're just a big bag of hate, aren't you?

I think Creston wants this to work so bad that he's willing to put up with some of the crap in the hopes that there's a better game underneath

Me? I've stopped playing it. That's how much I'm willing to put up with it...

I'll give them time to put some patches together and hopefully fix some of the more egregious shit, and then I'll do a free play run and just do missions and upgrade my ship, and hopefully get enough cash together for a station.

And if they don't fix it, oh well. I'll just consider it a lost Kickstarter and move on, and just say bye to Egosoft. I still have Albion Prelude to play, so I'll just play that then.

Yeah, I forgot you said that you were just going to put it away for now. But really, I was meaning as a whole, putting up with it to the betterment of the whole series and it's continuation (does that make a lick of fucking sense? )...and it's funny how you mentioned playing AP because that was exactly what I did all afternoon yesterday! It was like a traumatic recovery mechanism clicked on and I shutdown Rebirth and loaded X:AP while saying to myself, 'See, it's ok, nothing's wrong...it's just like I remember and nothing's been changed...all my ships are still here, and I can jump between them when I want...and there's the awesome sector map...and the awesome galaxy map...and oh, what a beautiful radar!..it was all just a bad dream, right?...of course it was...of course it was...' *twitch Crazy

I'm just so shocked at the changes. I think Creston wants this to work so bad that he's willing to put up with some of the crap in the hopes that there's a better game underneath and we all have faith in Egosoft that they'll make things right, if the modders don't first. But I just can't believe some of the things I'm seeing are from the same damn dev that did X3, X3TC and X3: AP. Where's the mindset from those games?! It's like a different team did Rebirth. I don't get it. I was in a state of shock yesterday! Seriously, I couldn't believe it could be this screwed up. I thought I just wasn't seeing things correctly. But unforunately, that first impression has left a really bad taste in my mouth and typically I'm pretty lenient with games having problems, especially the X-series. But this...this I can not accept. This is not the kind of game a seasoned dev with 3 hardcore space-trading/combat/exploration games (and 10+ years of development) comes out with as a 'next-gen' sequel. This is Sword Of the Stars 2-level of fuck up. I want this to work, I really do. We all do. But I wish I could have been on the beta team and seen what the thinking was behind some of the 'features' and what they intended. In fact, I'm going to write to a contact I had that was, indeed, on the beta team and ask him. I haven't spoken to him in a long time but I know he was on it, so maybe he can tell me some things. Because right now, I just want answers, not speculation...

Another headline: 'File-NUKING Cryptolocker PC malware MENACES 'TENS of MILLIONS' in UK - Back up before devil PC malware demands 860 BUCKS (530 quid)'

Damn. This shit is getting serious! Figures the hackers wouldn't be able to keep it in their pants, so to speak and are now demanding absurd amounts just to get data back. First it was $100, then $300, now $860! Greedy mothers...then again, I guess they can be with such a foolproof way of getting what they want. Wait for this kind of attack to explode in popularity very soon. Might as well just unhook your system from the Net...or get a tablet for going on the Net and keep the PC off...

I wonder if the new AMD Firepro s10000 cards help with mining? Because mining with regular gpu's is just about a dead art, unless you happen to have access to a AMD-based supercomputer (one with lots of AMD gpu's). Speaking of which, I wonder why AMD isn't more involved in the movement? I'm sure it's made them a lot of money as well. If you're interested in getting into mining, now would be the time to look into 'litecoins' as mining bitcoins is getting to be just about impossible for the common layman...

I agree with every single one of these points. Hopefully Egosoft can fix most/all of these issues, but it's going to take awhile.

I think they just ran out of money and released it. Even some of the long time testers are saying it's in essence just a public Beta.

Just a public Beta? More like just a fucking mess. My god, what a disaster. I'd really hoped that it was just so different from other X games that people were confused but it's like Ego totally took X apart bit by bit to replace everything and then forgot how to put it back together and then got bored/tired of trying and said, 'Fuck it!' and released it! Seriously, so many things that were in previous releases, things that didn't need work whatsoever (like a damn radar, of all things!) are missing or totally screwed! Why?! That's what I kept saying to myself and what a review from me would be...'Why, Egosoft?! WHY?!'. I don't understand the mindset that went into the changes. Why do the npc's/co-pilot look absolutely horrendous? I thought X2 was pretty bad in that area, but it was kind of just an annoyance and cringe-worthy, but XB just knocks that right out of the park! With SO many modelers and 3D animators out there, why do they have such a hard time with something so simple? And the co-pilot...if you want to call it that...just sits there and does nothing. ??? Like they had a plan and then said, 'Fuck it!'. This shouldn't have been X: Rebirth, it should have been X: BTF2: WTF?!...

Huh? You download the MotioninJoy tool, run it, load the driver and BAM! Done. (Oh, and have the DS3 controller hooked up, either via BT or, as I do, USB)...nothing much sophisticated to it. I actually retired my long-suffering Logi Rumblepad2 because using the DS3 controller is a better/smoother experience...

Laugh. You realize that you ask for hard numbers...they're given...and you continue to try to refute them with a single months or years old bit of data, right? The season's viewership is down 25 percent in just a few weeks. That puts it lower than where the last season ended... But when it doesn't go your way...suddenly it's not applicable or the fault of the writers. Gotcha.

Regardless, you're going to continue wasting time with straw men, as in your silly FPS argument (a genre with a 20 year steady track record), so I think we're done. You won. Zombies are the new pinnacle of media (ignoring historical data and cyclical trends since they first hit pop culture). Thank you for enlightening me. In 18-24 months, you're welcome to come back and make me eat crow over the continuing thriving state of zombies in media. But we both know that won't be the case.

Hmmm...on the internet, no one really gives of fuck if you won an argument. Good day.
