At a point, Rockstar moved away form Renderware(was that what it was? - same engine which Civ used) and made their own engine RAGE. It took them time to move across thought, after all, who raves about Rockstar Table Tennis now days?

Sure they have an excuse, it's an engine for consoles. They could make a new engine but why? The consoles wouldn't be able to handle the games.

What a dumb comment - oh, it's Cutter, carry on.

The new consoles can still be tap out a lot more - look how GTA improved graphical while still being on the same consoles. (yeah, they where not as good as the PC version, but each one was a lot better graphical compaired to the previous one on the same hardware.)

Smart is making lots of noise, it's all over Something Awful game's thread.

He's just moved on form here for a bit because there where not enough of us who where totally egging him on - where as the goons are more than keen.

In other words, he gets more attention over there.

On Topic -

The video is dire - is that all they have to show?

The list of blockers are a joke - the true list would be many many more pages - but the ones they have listed are major in them self.

This is no diffent to what they where saying about Star Marine, and that went no where despite them always making out it was just about ready.

This a just weekly cheerleading to keep the faith.

On the topic of sports - Rugby World Cup (once every 4 years) final tomorrow - New Zealand V Austraila, first time they have meet in the finals.

New Zealand captain, Richie Macaw, who most believe will retire form international rugby after, will be playing in his 148 International match, I think he as captained NZ over 100 times, old losing 7 of those.

Many call the All Blacks (NZ) the most winning team in any sport ever (winning over %80 of the time) - although I'm unsure just how true that is.

Looking forward to it, early broadcast over here in New Zealand (5am) so many breakfast being sold at the pubs.

OK, back to your American sports.

BTW - my favortie Gary Oldman image was second one down, page two - The RSI Gary Oldman 'Paaaarrp' Air Horn.

Lots of really funny good ones - best thing to come out of Star Citizen so far - their will be many lols if/once the public and the goons get there hands on the actual models of all those actors (Hamill/Anderson ect)

News Comments > Star Citizen New Flight Model Details
8. Re: Star Citizen New Flight Model Details Oct 29, 2015, 20:09 Kosumo

Ship flight balancing is one of the most difficult and delicate tasks that we have on this project. The move to a 3rd order system and the addition of a dynamically determined velocity mode have necessitated a nearly complete from-the-ground-up re-balance of the ship handling characteristics. This means that each of the ships are likely going to feel quite different from what you’re used to in Arena Commander.

This is what they should have been doing 18 months ago.

To me, in that time, all they have done is burn off the goodwill that they had - just for more money while the basic underlining game system - space flight was just left there, in a hoe hum state.

It remains to be seen if they really understand what they are doing or just reacting (slowly) to some of the underling problems.

Still, this remains to be rolled out to the public, which with their track record could take years, like the Star Marine module that was to be out months and months ago.

I suspect that they got too distracted with 'Star Marine' and lost sight of what was the real core of the promised game. I would think this is because Chris Roberts (scummy, deceptive man) is in charge.

"Star Citizen - burning backers money for coke fulled dreams since 2013"

Edit - Derek is ranting away over on the Something Awful fourms, picking on people in wheelchairs. He's "doxxing"* like a mad man.

That's the best you have? Your argument is Superweaksauce™ and you know it. CIG can't be expected to build the same game they were planning for $6m when they've raised $93m. If they simply pocketed the extra money and delivered the original game people would be screaming fraud.

Delays happen. Get over it.

Well, you know, they could have like, stop sell ships to raise more money and stopped adding streach goals to incress the funds and then they would not have $93 million dollars so it would not have been a fraud. You know that extra money he could have turned away.

But Chris wants more money; He could have made (or not, cos he is shit at making games) a very nice version of his Star Citizen 1.0 vision for around the 30-45 million dollar make that would be out now and I don't think people would have called it a scam - he could have shown how he is a master at making cool gameplay. Then announced a second game made with both the first ones profits and backers money!

Instead, he has shown him self to be a greedy deceptive man who is more keen to make a movie with his wife - both of whom just want more of other peoples money to do with what they wish.

You asked for people to point out promises that he has broken - LTI, re-selling limited sale ships. You also state that you wont accept 'delays' as a broken promise, well if he never release any final product, what does anyone have to work his promises against since he keeps saying they will be in the game - which is not coming out.

News Comments > Fallout 4 Preload Plans
24. Re: Fallout 4 Preload Plans Oct 27, 2015, 04:01 Kosumo
I see what you are say, Bethesda is after a product that sells/returns $100 - $300 million (4.5 - 15 million sales in first 2 years, if it's on the level of Skyrim, it would have a very very long tail), where as an original Style Fallout game is in the $20 - $60 million return. (.8 - 3 million sales in first 2 years)

A Fallout 4 size game I would think would cost $45 - $70 million to make plus marketing* (just a guess, what do other think?)

Where as I'd think you could make a original style Fallout for $7.5 - $20 million (guessing again, anyone else want a guess?)

So to me it make sense to do them both but I get where you coming from. (the point of Bethesda, go big or go home) It comes down to weather they believe it adds value to the franchise overall. (It would for some, it's like the free mobile game that they release for Fallout 4 - marketing)

Still, Jerykk, would you like to see/play a Fallout game back in that style?

*Marketing money can be unlimited, It is just whatever the publisher is confident/silly enough to pay. It's like doubling down on a bet.

They already haven't. CIG have broken Kickstarter promises left, right and center and, yeah, there will be way more to come when you really sit down and compare the entire pitch/stretch goal list to whatever will be playable one day.
What are these promises that CIG has supposedly broken? I've been following since the original Kickstarter and am not aware of any. Delays don't count, as they were only estimates and it was stated from the beginning that delays were likely. In fact the game has expanded to such a degree that backers are getting substantially more than was originally promised.

While I don't think these where 'promises', I do still think they are just some of the very many times that Chris Roberts as out right lied to the backers.

Chris said this (September 2013) -
“The more funds we can raise in the pre-launch phase, the more we can invest in additional content (more ships, characters etc.) and perhaps more importantly we can apply greater number of resources to the various tasks to ensure we deliver the full functionality sooner rather than later.

"Full Functionality sooner rather than later" - He lied, He knew he was lying, He did not care, He just wanted more money to play with.

Chris also said this (June 2015) -
"Will it take longer to deliver all this? Of course! When the scope changes, the amount of time it will take to deliver all the features naturally increases. This is something we are acutely aware of."

"Of course" - That's him calling people his fanbase fools for ever believing his lies. He is just trying to justify taking more money and more time for him to piss away on his poorly managed 'game'.

There wont be a Arena Commander 2.0 before the end of the year, and if/when it every does come out it will be so broken that he will call it pre-pre-alpha. He know this but sells the dream to get more money knowing he is years away for even a base game let alone all these internet spaceships he as sold for hundreds of dollars.

I would say that the Endevor spaceship will NEVER be in the game.

Squadren 42 will be lucky to release 10 missions by this time next year, and that with them put all their effort into it.

Point: Has Arena Commander 1.3 really added anything? (wtf with the grey cat in ArcCorp? - dumb dumb shit) You have often said how they need more 'maps' have they come about - from what I have herd, Arena Commander 0.8 - 1.3 has not really evoiled very well at all, and that's over a year at lest. Plenty of excuse thought. (waiting on Star Marine - which was waiting on animation, then waiting on networking, merging stuff, ect, ect) <--- POORLY MANAGED!

Chris Roberts is a deceptive, scummy man.

I think there's still a market for games like that, but it'll have to come through smaller projects like Kickstarters. No publisher really seems to want to cough up the cash for something like them.

Firaxs/Take 2 with X-COM:Enemy Unknown and the up coming sequal show that there are larger publishers willing to invest money it to that style of game.

Bethesda just was not know for that style of game so made it more in the style that they where known for. (Also, maybe it was a better fit for console gamers as sad as that sounds - I know Fallout: Botherhood of Steel, came out on consoles, did any of the others?)

I still agree with what you said in general. I'm sure that the Fallout universe is a long long way form dying out now. (how long was the gap between the last Fallout game before Fallout 3 and Fallout 3?)

I'd be keen to see a Firaxs Fallout game (isometric) with Chris Avolle (you guys know who I mean) as a spin off.

I'll have to wait to buy closer to release. I dropped $1,400 on a car payment internet pew pew space ship that ended any kind of play eating money for October. I'm hell bent on being debt free an elite Star Citizen (with no pubes). Priorities Christ Roberts and the Cult of White Knights first.

Fixed that for you Allthumbsup

I've been replaying the first Fallout (first time in about 15 years) and as harlock says, they still stand up gameplay wise.

In saying that, I'm total going to get this day one despite not liking Fallout 3 all that much - I loved Fallout:NV. I'm happy to roll with some chance on this.

Just because Fallout 1 & 2 where great games, dose not mean that although 3 was not as good, that it was not worthy, it was ok/good, Fallout:NV was just about back to great level.

Happy that you are going to pass on this if you feel that way. I hope its great, gets good reviews, and you then give it a go and enjoy it.

Otherwise - troll away

Is that a steam key? International fine? (regional prices is $100nzd about ~$60-$70usd)

For a while we where getting good prices down here and games where at a reasonable price point - now it's getting back up to way over priced again. It's like we are becoming like Austraila (but still can play rugby ((zing )) ) and getting totally tucked on computer games prices.

Some of the GTA games had pretty good actors in them, It's not why I brought them, but having Ray Leota, Samual L Jackson, James Wood and Chris Penn in them was fun. (Vice City, San Andreas)

Although it's telling that Rockstar now does not do that. (can't think of any in GTA 4 or 5)

Ah, okay, you and I are largely on the same page then. I want this to succeed, I'm just having a hard time seeing how they get there with their constant scope creep. The ArcCorp module tossed me off the wagon, before that I was pretty optimistic. But that was so overbuilt (as one location of a projected hundreds) that I realized the game would never be finished if everything was going to be built at that scale. Still, if they release SQ 42 complete, I'll feel I got my $35 worth.
I would love to see the game that Chris Roberts talks about being made and for sale, (it sound great, even thought I'm not that into space sims, what a great sounding game! (I'll play any good game - any type)) but I don't think people should be paying more than around ~$60 for a complete game.

For a non complete game, which this very much is, (with an average of about $90 dollars per backer) and the makers having their hand out for more, without taking into account the chance of all the dodgness with this project (Chris's wife in a top position and acting roll, the way how their are multiply diffent studios in diffent places around the world, with lots of diffent companies, the stringing along of people to buy another ship (jpeg)) this just makes me feel very unease about this way of making games.

It's also has become a pay to win game either though there is a good chance that the game will never be real.

It's a long way form the days of paying for Quake 2 and playing as much multiplayer as you want.

edit - Blue is more than able to stand up for himself here, if not he'll just set the dog on you! Also don't attack other posters, attack their views/points of debate, if they are dumping on the 'whole Blues community', of which they must be part of, just take it for what it is, move on. (or agree even).

The Blusenews Community can take it with out kicking back I'm sure. (save your anger for Chris Roberts! Devilish )

Thanks for your reply, very well put, I agree with you in some ways but I also have a lot of fun poking the cultist.

Please feel free to post about the third way (middle ground, some other are already there) as often as you like. I'm all about more points of view (In this wasted first world topic Thumbsup )

P.S. I do like the Star Citizen threads, has do others or else they would not have so many post (although it's mostly a few posters (kxmode, myself, CJ Parker, jdreyer, theyarecomingforyou, ect) posting many times.) - I'm sure Blue know how many look at these post and weather it is wroth him posting them.

Just imagine all the constructive things you could have done, instead of committing so wholeheartedly to loving or hating a game, that you have or have not paid for, that may or may not meet your expectations. The first world problems surrounding Star Citizen and this website is somewhere between mania and obsession. Good grief.

What do you mean "this website"? There are 32 other topics posted in the last 24 hours - while it maybe a popular/hot topic for debate, Bluesnews has many other post about many other topics.

If you don't wish to see the comment you can just not click on the view comments link.

If you wish to post in the comments and get people to respond to you, you could just post 'first world problems' to try to belittle people who have a interest in the topic like a hipster would.

Do you have an opinion on Star Citizen or would you like to post on the meta of Star Citizen threads with something more than 'first world problems'

I'm happy to hear about either.

As to 'constructive things' could you give us some exsamples which are in the same vane as lying in bed posting on a website?

By the way, a big part of my character is gaming and I am very interested and take part in discutions about it. (Like I would think many here on a PC gaming website would)
