Not really related to the topic, but when I hear anything about this game I can't help but remember how excited I was when they released that incredible video some years back. And then how utterly deflated I felt when it was later announced that it was going to be a F2P multiplayer game.

Saint's Row 4 is fun but it's pretty obvious that it was rushed. Aside from recycling Steelport and most of the NPCs, vehicles and outfits, most of the side-quests are really half-assed and simply consist of "Go complete four random activities."

Thankfully, the superpowers change the gameplay enough to compensate for this but still, it would have been nice to see more original content.

That's basically what my son, who bought it day 1, said. He mentioned that it felt more like a professionally-done mod for SR3 than it's own game, though he did enjoy it. I can stand for more SR3 since it was one of the most fun games I've played in the last decade, so even a huge mod I have to pay for peaks my interest - just not 40 bucks-worth.

News Comments > On Star Citizen's $17M Haul
22. Re: On Star Citizen's $17M Haul Sep 1, 2013, 18:07 Prez
 
Star Citizen has, in my many years of gaming experience, the most transparent and player-centered game development process to date.

No doubt, but given the amount of griping that will inevitably come when people interpret each and every announcement or action by the dev team differently than they intended I wonder if that is necessarily a good thing for them to be doing.

Given that that the backers are essentially the publishers (who would under normal circumstances expect frequent progress reports) it's understandable that Roberts and his team feel the need to communicate so often with the community, but I think they want to be very careful with asking for any more money at this point. There is an awful lot of grumbling going on amongst the backers from what I've seen.

Me, I am not a backer, as I am not convinced that this game is targetted towards me (an unapologetic singleplayer gamer exclusively), but as a longtime space sim nut it's virtually impossible for me not to be interested in how it turns out. Especially since with Roberts at the helm it could easily turn out that I'm wrong and that this will in fact be a game I could enjoy.

10 TB per month? Jeez, what are these guys downloading? The entire Times-Warner catalog in hi def? You'd have to be spending $400 per month or hard drives just to store all that data.

Seriously - that's just insane. Do these people leave their wifi unsecured so everyone around them can download all the movies and music they want too? I'm against bandwidth caps but 10TB is ridiculous.

As bad as it is, I'd still probably get more use out of A:CM than Hotline Miami. I hear the controls in Miami are frustrating.

The biggest reason for the worse-than-expected PC sales is almost certainly Windows 8. What in God's name was Microsoft thinking????

If the singleplayer is "just" Wing Commander I'd be tickled pink! That game is still on my top 10 list of best games ever.

Honestly, if you're hanging everything on single player I think you are going to be disappointed.

Wouldn't be the first time. But my hopes really aren't too high, so I won't be that disappointed if you are right (and you probably are).

No sweat off my back. People like you are the very reason why I don't play with others. I deal with rude and obnoxious people enough in the real world - my game world is for me and me alone.

Looks nice! I am itching to see the "big picture" though. I don't play with others, so the singleplayer portion is going to have to be worth the purchase price on its own.

I forgot that I actually donated to the kickstarter for this way back when!

Pre-Alpha footage right? from 2004?

If it truly is like an update of the original Rainbow Six as the developers are hinting at I doubt the people towards whom this is geared will care.

“however it’s not the core fantasy, it’s not the most fun and by the endgame, for a variety of reasons, they tend to check the auction house first and play the game second.”

You know, EVERYONE was saying this from the get-go. They finally realize this now?

In the first days of availability, the PC version of Saints Row IV more than tripled its first week’s sale numbers over the prior release from THQ, Saints Row: The Third.

That is awesome!

Police influenced by need to explain aberrant behavior: Blue.

Same old bullshit. If there was any way that playing Call of Duty caused people to commit real life violence there would be way, way WAY more violence than there is right now. It is the most popular videogame franchise in the world right now - if even 1% of the people who played it became violent we would have such a spike in violent crime as we have never seen.

That's fine by me. I haven't really had the desire to play an EA game in a long time anyway.

The funny thing is I could have sworn that Origin had an offline mode. Aren't singleplayer games like Dead Space 3 and Mass Effect 3 playable offline?

I think I see your point. It doesn't make them look like a very professional outfit and I can see how it would undermine confidence in them - but I don't really see why.

That's pretty much it. I don't have a lot of faith in a start-up that has to ask for 5 grand.
