I'm surprised anyone thinks that Microsoft cares about anything Mojang beyond Minecraft.

Hardly anyone would think that. But we do hold them to their Commitment(tm) to PC Gaming any time we can.

Reading up on Star Marine that sounds a lot different than the original vision given. I recall, you can hit different body parts and that would affect the hitee. That you could miss and do damage to the ship and that would then need repair before it is too late. That you could sabotage someone at a docking station and steal their ship. Now it sounds like meet a station and do some un-attached PvP? Huh?

That's the long-term plan for the full, persistent-universe portion of the game once it's actually developed. The smaller-scale "Star Marine" concept is just the initial implementation of FPS combat to get things working and tested, just like what they're doing with "Arena Commander" for the space combat.

Ah thanks, its just another step. So many plans to keep straight.

Seems Notch's notorious MO for starting things and abandoning them has been rubbing off. I fear for Minecraft, I really truly do.

We got the miraculous augment version of Minecraft coming.

Perspective, in the sports world they still marvel and adjust the price of all NA sports teams over the sale of the Clips to Madman Ballmerm, paying 2 billion. Well the clips aren't even worth Minecraft, lol. I'd say you can't reprice anything because of these two purchases, its just MS insanity, not the market working.

They need to make movies fast over Minecraft in hopes to make back their investment.

I don't think they are talking steam machines, steam isn't making the steam machines are they? Not surprised about the other, esp the controller, lots of people interested and willing to try.

Hasn't it been like three YEARS already?! And just AC to show for it?! WTF?! And everyone's ok with this? 'I don't mind the delays' Are you crazy? He's got like over $80 million and still can't develop a game within a typical triple-A game dev period...


=-Rigs-=

Yep, that is the truth, like it or not. One could say this is under-preforming on return given time so far. When this is a game that has to break records of over-delivering to give us what it promises. Not a good sign.

Another reason I don't understand why people play these shit hole games. Every "popular" game on steam is early access bullshit survival pvp pve. ARK sold tons of copies but from what I've seen, it doesn't even deserve half. It runs like shit and plays like shit. Fucking gamer muppets these days with the developers got their hands shoved so far up their asses making them speak "OPEN WORLD, SAND BOX, FREE TO PLAY, NEXT GEN".


I get what you are going for but people are buying them because they like them, it isn't anyone's fault your preferences aren't market leaders.

And there are still plenty of game out there beyond EA Survival games, there are 1000's of games. What are you wanting that you are getting less Star Citizen?

The FPS module will really be the make-or-break moment for me. I've been supportive of these guys since day 1, when they announced an expansive world that included FPS elements, I was hooked.

However, the FPS developers have virtually no experience with legitimate FPS games and they're taking this long to produce anything tangible. It's becoming more and more concerning as time goes on.

And they are promising things in their FPS that games that just do FPS haven't done in the past. Best of FPS world to!!!

When Chris left Obsidian, here and elsewhere there was a bit of a cry as to "Don't Go!". Finishing up Pillars, his name is way way down the credits and isn't even credited as lead writer in the game. How some were stating his leaving as some type of huge writing loss, I found this odd.

Uh, Chris Avellone co-founded/co-owns Obsidian. It's not like he submitted his two-week notice and then bounced. His partners were most likely aware of his departure months, if not a year+ in advance. You don't officially assign a departing senior manager to a lead role on an unreleased project.

I still found it surprising if credits are correct, how little he was credited for with the game and didn't mention anything you are talking about.

Probably a stupid question, but as a property owner, how "far" up and down do you "own" or is considered your private space?

Certainly nobody is saying a satellite is ok to shoot down even though they can take video and pictures of your house.


"While the Supreme Court hasn't explicitly accepted that as the upper limit of property ownership, it's a useful guideline in trespass cases. Therefore, unless you own some very tall buildings, your private airspace probably ends somewhere between 80 and 500 feet above the ground."

Obviously this needs addressed and if something is withing your airspace what can you do about it? If it is a drone are you allowed to attack it?

"I thought it was a CIA surveillance device."

Glad I didn't have a mouthful of beer when I read that. I may be searching Amazon for a replacement monitor. That shit was funny.

As JeffD alluded to, this guy states it like duh, "If it were CIA drone that would be totally ok for me to do.", that would be the absolute worst case if it were a gov't controlled drone. The dude would have been anal probed behind bars for doing that, good thing for him it was a civilian drone.

I don't like survival games like that or DayZ. The competition is too much for me, I end up constantly afraid of everyone and everything. The pressure begins to overwhelm me. The carebear games where I can talk tough but then hide behind the game mechanics are much more fun. They always end up totally broken and half baked too.

Some of these games have PvE servers, then it becomes community survival against the elements.

If there's no demarcation separating the properties perhaps it appeared it was over his property. In which case, have at it. You can bet if I ever see a drone so much as hovering 'around' my property then I'm just going to happen to be shooting in that direction and if that drone gets hit too bad for who owns it.

The laws need to be clear yesterday on this. We have a whole reckoning coming with this camera everywhere stuff, something will have to give.

And Amazon still testing drone delivery in CA and So-Cal, even if not shot at, safely landing every time has to be out of the question. They even are saying to your current location, on a sidewalk... how can a drone with spinners and public just think it can land anywhere it chooses?
