Hey KXmode!? Did you reach out to CIG and talk to them in a rational manner? Is that how you got your money back?

Actually what I did was smear peanut butter on my face and run around like a crazy man outside their Santa Monica office.

Posted a followup on the article with more info if you're so inclined to read.

Gotta say, Witcher 3 is a pretty solid game but I found one thing lacking.. In any good book or movie, they develop the antagonist well. In Witcher 3, they did a pretty piss poor job of developing the main antagonists Caranthir, Eredin and ok job developing Imlerith. Instead, they focused more on the protagonists like Triss, Yennefer, Zoltan, Dandelion and more on sub antanogists like Emyhr and Radovid..

I thought Whoreson Junior was the best villain in the game.

I just bought SRHK on Steam! Looking forward to playing it in 16 minutes. I vaguely remember playing SR on Genesis but other than that I don't know much about the Shadowrun world. Looking forward to exploring it!

Never played the Shadowrun games. Are they good? I need something to hold me over until Life Is Strange Episode 5 next month.

There are statements from all the involved parties, with 3D Realms saying they didn't realize they weren't entitled to license an IP after selling it off, that Interceptor is still developing Bombshell, and that Gearbox has voluntarily ended the litigation, satisfied that they've proven ownership of the Duke IP. There are hugs all around, and the goodwill everyone expresses makes a mystery of how this ended up in court.

Think Star Citizen Backers and Anti-Backers will ever become like that?

Why are they advertising this as if it was a completed game? This early access nonsense needs to stop.

This is regarding:

“When we first started, we raised $6 million with crowdfunding,” Roberts told me. “That was a lot, but it still wasn’t what we were gonna make the game for because we had private investors lined up. At that point, we were thinking of making a much more contained game. But as things went on and the stretch goals kept getting hit, people were basically saying, ‘We want this feature’ and ‘we want that feature.’ So obviously, the scope changed. It naturally follows that if you’re gonna build a house and then someone says, ‘No, we want you to build a huge castle,’ even if you have a lot more money, it’s gonna take more time to build the castle.”

Two points.

1. When funding reached 20 million Roberts wrote a community letter praising their combined efforts to reach such a milestone. In that letter he wanted to address their growing concerns over scope creep.

There has been some concern about “feature creep” with the additional stretch goals. You should all know that we carefully consider the goals we announce.

. . .

The first are goals that involve features we already have planned or have implemented, but we couldn’t create content because of budgetary constraints.

. . .

But both types of goals are carefully considered — we don’t commit to adding features that would hold up the game’s ability to go “live” in a fully functional state.

So in September 2013 Roberts tells concerned Backers "No, it's cool. This is shit we planned to add from the beginning. We just need more Backers - like you - to give us more money to make it happen." Then today, August 2015, Chris is now blaming those very Backers for the game's current "scope creep". Like what the actual fuck?!

2. Roberts now admits in writing that "we were thinking of making a much more contained game". In other words that game he pitched on Kickstarter.

I'm at a complete loss for words. This is like the scene in "A Few Good Men" when Jessep admits to ordering the death of PFC Santiago in a court of law.

On this page CIG writes "The game is currently in alpha version." Star Citizen isn't anywhere near alpha. It is a collection of playable tech demos. In its current development Star Citizen is somewhere between Design and Testing. An alpha, as most people know it, is "a game [that] is feature complete, that is, [a] game [that] is playable and contains all the major features." Star Citizen is not even remotely close to that status. "Alpha" is inappropriately used to confuse newcomers into believing the game is almost done. CIG needs to get rid of "alpha" and go with more acceptable and accurate terms like "early access" or "pre-alpha" so that people know precisely what status it's in. When, and if, the game ever does reach Alpha status then they can go back to using it.

You're not even subtle in your trolling.

Foundry 42, a Cloud Imperium development studio, was created in Manchester specifically to work on Squadron 42 and eventually took on more responsibility. But as a studio they have never released a game.

I would like to correct myself and say that Illfonic has produced one product called Nexuiz; which is no longer for sell on Xbox 360 or Steam.

I would like to apologize for "Neither have shipped a product". All that aside my question "So how can you make that claim?" still stands. How can you make the claim "Foundry 42's work has always been of a much higher calibre than that of Illfonic" when neither studio has a record of quality work.

Illfonic and Foundry 42 are basically the same studios. Neither have shipped a product. So how can you make that claim? Other than it keeps reinforcing the quote from Paulo Coelho, "fanaticism is the only way to put an end to the doubts that constantly trouble the human soul."

So Illfonic was "Ill-prepared" to handle the task.

My wife and I had to put our cat to sleep today. She'd had a stroke over the weekend, and when we came home today, we found her lying on the ground, seemingly paralyzed in her hind legs.

She was 13 years old.

Bye Tabby. We will miss you.

Painful Crest. Hopefully you have lots of photos and videos to relive those wonderful experiences with Tabby.

Thanks indeed, Kxmode! That's some serious praising, mate. It got me really excited and I no longer have any doubts whether to buy it or not. Band practice tonight, LIS tomorrow night!

Welcome! Let us know what you think about it in the coming days or weeks.

Maybe the reason why the game looks like it works so well is the movie itself is very much like a video game. I don't mean that in a derogatory way. I simply mean the way George Miller wrote and directed the film absolutely lends itself to an awesome video game experience.

It's also ironic considering the film was mostly practical effects and the video game is basically CG. lol

Have you tried Life is Strange?

Nope, not yet! Did have my eyes on it. I wanna get it when all the episodes are out. I wouldn't watch a TV series season a second sooner either But people say it's pretty good, yeah?

To give you an idea, Life is Strange and Witcher 3 are my GOTYs and of those two I am leaning towards LIS simply because it's more "visceral" and "raw" than Witcher 3. You will not be disappointed in the least!

DONTNOD is releasing episodes on an 8-week schedule. So if the schedule holds episode 5 should be out the week of September 21st. As someone who played all four episodes waiting for the 5th is torture!
