Yeah just wait for it to hit 5 or 10 bucks. It really isn't worth more than that.

Even IF they get all the bugs fixed, and get all the weird minigames destroyed, and get the actual functionality of things like trading systems and fleet commands put back in, there really just isn't anything to DO besides build complexes.

The initial previews sound promising.
GMG has a 20% off code - FUSWJT-B1DU64-JBV8UY that makes the game $28.88

So tempted, but I already don't have any time to play anything... Sigh

As article stated its 4 to 9 watts for standby. Honestly, yeah, we need to worry about people leaving 60 watt lightbulbs on all day, but why are we obsessing of a 5 watt device? There are tons of much more power hungry things in your household.

The XBone uses 16 watts in standby. That's ridiculous. And no one leaves on a 60 watt light bulb for 24/365. And 16 watts is like leaving a CF bulb on all the time.

Indeed, a device using more than 1w in standby is also violating EU laws.... 16 Watts is insane. That's how much an ACTIVE NAS needs, when it servers a bunch of HDD's and network chips.

And the xbone uses that much power when it's OFF ?

Well, it needs to be listening for when you might tell it to turn back on! After all, clicking a button on your controller is too much work!

Looks like some good old school fun time. Only thing that gives me pause after watching the TB video is an apparent lack of bad guys in the levels. Seems TB enters a huge area, kills maybe a dozen (if that) bad guys and the place is clear, are the areas that underpopulated?

Several reviews have said that it does ramp up in the later parts, to the point where it can quickly overwhelm you.

What would you guys say are the best or must-have mods nowadays for albion prelude?

XRM is your one stop shop. It has a bit of everything. New ships, new weapons, rebalanced economy, better NPC behaviour, more action in contested zones, better fleshed out relations between races(races that don't like each other really fight it out etc.).

I use that and nothing else, but some folks add more stuff on top of it. You just need to make sure that you're not conflicting with it when you use other mods.

Yeah, hard to argue with XRM.

This bullshit spin about losing the kinect being bad for everyone is like the spin they put on taking off the always online drm of the Xbox One console back at E3 2013.
Yep, I remember reading comments how people were pissed Microsoft removed the DRM.
They were like "Microsoft had something new and exciting for us but people had to whine about it and now it is fucked for everyone."
I was like Headscratch

Stockholm Syndrome makes people say and do really weird things.

Most likely desperation. I suspect they HAD to launch due to money issues and the launch i.e. preorder numbers HAD to be big enough to sustain them throughout the process of finishing the game. So what better way to frontload a cash infusion than by riding the hype train?

Yeah but it seems so pointless. After TC and AP, every X fan would have bought this anyway, as Egosoft was riding high after two great games. And the non X-fans wouldn't have cared about whether every ship was actively integrated in the economy or not.

It was just a terribly stupid decision, because now they've pissed off the large majority of X fans.

There are still a few people on the forums who claim that anyone who bought the game should have known what to expect, and that everyone should be grateful for the fact that Egosoft is still working on it, because their after launch support is second to none. I sincerely hope that cup of Koolaid never passes within 500 meters of my lips.

Even more incredible is that there are a few dozen people who are actually currently playing it. I think I'd rather shoot nails in my gentleman's sausage.

I bought one and I'm not unhappy that I own one, I'm unhappy that the people inside Xbox are so fucking incompetent as to believe that their brand is so strong that they can shit in a box and people will buy it.

Irony, thy name is...

Maybe I should finally play Crysis 2, or even 3.

Crysis 2 is awesome. Well worth playing.

I just finished dl'ing Crysis 3 last night, look forward to playing that as soon as I'm done replaying Crysis & Crysis 2.

Yeah...the mass traffic removal mod. Removes the clutter of small ships around stations that don't do anything(which they explicitly said took part in the in-game economy).

I still don't get why Bernd felt the need to lie out of his ass so much when he was doing the preview videos. Every X fan was already going to buy the game, so why set yourself up for failure like that? It took approximately 30 minutes for people to figure out that the "Every ship is tied into the economy in some way" rhetoric was just bullshit.

Quboid, funny you mention that, I've just been replaying Crysis.


As for Wolfenstein, it looks good, issues notwithstanding. I'll wait a bit for those to get resolved and some better drivers to come out, but I think it's a shooter I could have a lot of fun with.

However, the PC Gamer article does show some gifs on why id tech 5 is such a fucking terrible engine. That texture pop-in is just horrible. Why Carmack ever thought this was a great idea is beyond me...

Does anyone know if they improved performance yet? Last I checked, I was getting approximately 30 fps with GTX 680s in SLI.

There have been some performance improvements, but they've been rather minor, unfortunately.

There is a mod that cuts the amount of NPC ships by 75%, which makes your FPS go up by like 30, though.

Was there a single person in the world asking for this?
