Only played the first reboot for a little bit, I have to go back and start over again.

Four player co-op action game? Sounds like Eidos trying to cram the Tomb Raider license into Diablo?

That was really underwhelming. Felt like a very "safe" showing when they should have been swinging for the fences.

I take it you're talking about MS? Two months ago they were bleating "We're gonna rock everyone's socks off at E3!"

So, did they announce their one new game?

whatever happened to that space game he was supposedly making where you program your own computer and all that shit

He stopped working on it indefinitely. (in other words: it got canceled.)

Apparently the systems worked pretty well, but there was zero fun to be had in any of it.

I saw a quote from him explaining it was mostly a jab at 'minimal effort' early release green-light games, but he also acknowledges the inherent hypocrisy seeing as mine-craft was an early access game for years.

Someone should explain to Notch that acknowledging that you're a hypocrit does not, in fact, alleviate said hypocrisy.

I am not sure what was promised in terms of handling but this Alpha build doesn't feel like ship physics or flight controls for that matter were top priority in the development.

Isn't that kind of the point (or one of the points) of this entire arena commander release, though? To get that kind of feedback so they can tweak the flight model?

Ding ding ding! That is the right answer Tom, you win 1 free internet. Yes, on just about everything that's released, be it news, videos or the hangar and Arena Commander it all has a big red warning label saying "THIS IS PRE ALPHA / ALPHA! Nothing is final! Help us improve the game." and yet no one seems to grasp this whatsoever.

Well, to be fair, some devs do an alpha test or a beta test and say "this is what it is, just find bugs," and I wasn't sure if this had been declared as THE flight model, or if they were soliciting feedback on it with an eye on changing it based on that feedback.

Of course it is, which is why I said:

At the end of the day I dislike how the ship I have access to handles and I hope they will somehow make this more fun during the dev process.

Yeah it probably would have helped had I read on and saw your other post before asking the question.

Yeah I don't hold out much hope for that anymore either, but maybe they'll at least release a PS4 version.

Believe me, I'm F5-ing the fuck out of numerous sites here...

Even PC centric franchises like The Elder Scrolls are vastly outsold by the consoles, 3mil for that one if I recall correctly.

That 3 million was completely utterly made up by a website. There's no way Skyrim only sold 3 million copies if it was in Steam's top 10 for basically two years straight. Steam makes over 1.5 billion in revenue, there's no way those two numbers add up.

I know a lot of people who just play MMOs as time fillers and don't even seem to derive much enjoyment from them. Sometimes I think "well just play something else!" but I do the same thing with ARPGs so who am I to criticize?

MMOs rise and fall with the people you play with. My first time through Guild Wars 2 was okay, but I definitely got bored with it once i had explored everywhere.

Second time through I'm with a guild with a core group of cool people to hang out with, and the entertainment is definitely higher and last longer, though I will admit that nowadays mostly I just play so that I have something to do while talking to my buddies.

Classy. Make millions of bucks off selling an incomplete version of Minecraft, which took roughly five years to actually reach an actual release candidate, then complain at the other guys doing the same thing?

I agree that SOME early access games are a scam, and some are released as nothing but a few rudimentary ideas, but there are also plenty of early access games that are released in roughly the same state as Minecraft was.

The Age of Notch is passing.

Nelson Mandela spent 20 years in prison.

I haven't kept up with it so maybe the official story on that has changed, but wasn't Mandela guilty, because he did actually kill that security guard?

Look guilty? He IS guilty. He broke the law. He's not a "traitor", but he's definitely a coward. He had a great opportunity to stand for something bigger than himself and be a symbol for what the people want. Less intrusion. the vast majority of Americans were outraged by what was/is going on. He blew it for himself and for everyone else, tbh.

Internet arm-chair quarterbacking is easy. Next time you have the opportunity to blow the whistle on a major government scandal, stand up proudly in front of the white house and yell the truth out at the masses! Then keep doing so while you're being tortured in Guantanamo Bay.

Had Snowden stayed here, he'd have vanished or been killed.

They should just call it "The National Football League Game!"

Hmm, anyone else think that more than the vote, they want to give access temporarily to the newest ships so you can be tantalized and buy them once they take them away?

You're too young to be this cynical.
