Vince is full of shit, I'm betting right now, if he had to do it all over again, this game would still not be on steam.

This is whats called talking out of your ass.

I would also argue that what killed this game was MP only. not Campaign.

I thought this was going to be free to ALL who owned the game since this also affected us too? So only those who owned the season pass or gold can get this? What kind of bullshit is that?

Money talks..didnt take em long to cave

I knew it was only a matter of time until these asshats caved in. They made the game to unreachable to many players and they got sick of it and left.

Blizzard kind of did this to WOW in its early years which is why they caved in and dumbed down the game.

These guys didn't pay very close attention when they worked at Blizzard and they didn't learn from the mistakes over there. probably to little to late now. most likely this game will be done in a year. that's if they don't try and take a crack at F2P. And that may not even save them.

I think they wont be as successful then next time around. they really burned a lot of people with that Draconian DRM they are using.

I really doubt many are going to jump all over this one.

One of the few games I genuinely felt like pre-ordering ;). Can't wait until the CE adorns my game shelf.

Curious how you plan to do that when the game is digital? And no, we are not talking about lame console versions.

I also think since they are adding this character, they should make this a 2 players Coop game. Now that would be killer.

Having a dumb day Darks? He said CE edition...as in the boxed Collector's Edition.


Yea, I guess I am. missed that part.

Thanks,

Is there any way to enable the mouse in the cocpit menus? I was struggling to bind keys from my joystick, the whole binding system is a horrible mess.

My first mission will be "Find your pre-order Eagle". Apparently its an agile and very lightly armoured fighter, thats music to my ears. So its just like a tie fighter, basically a flying space lazer! PEW PEW!
That's why you need a TrackIR or a Rift. I just look at the menus and they open up then use the buttons on my joystick to navigate them.
There are keys to bind each of the 3 panels if you look under options. There are at least 200 gazillion key binding options from menu navigation to flight controls targeting and all the different functions of your ship like silent running lights cargo door etc etc.

This I what concerns me about this game. they have gone ape shit overboard making the game way to complicated with controls and to the point of almost forcing you to have a complicated setup to play the game.

This is why I am passing on this game. I am hoping Star Citizen is not going to be the same mess. I don't want to wade thought a ton of keyboard options just to paly a flight sim, I want to enjoy it for what it really is and not have to feel like im in some real world BS. I get a feeling this was done to appease the hard Core players.

Bullshit.

I have a keyboard and an ancient joystick and I'm doing fine. Stick for roll/pitch/pew pew pew, keyboard for thrust vectors. WSAD for accellerate, pitch left/right, QE for strafe left right, FR for up down. X is bound to automatic 50% thrust so that I can turn off flight assist and instantly get back to maneuvering speed.

That's 90% of my controls. If I want to hit a menu 1-4 are at my left hand, and that's the menus, and you use WSAD to navigate the menus and QE to navigate the pages.

There's like 3 other keys you use frequently: deploy hardpoints (to reign them back in), jump drive, and landing gear. I have target acquisition and flight assist bound to the joystick so no bigs there.

The only difficulty I'm having is that energy redistribution is defaulted to the arrow keys, and I have to let go of the strafe keys to adjust power, but that's only a minor setback.

That's like what, 12 keys total?

Did you even bother to read all of the responses to this thread before you decided to start spouting shit out of your mouth?

Get a clue!

Have you played the original game, or any of the previous ones?
You don't need a complicated setup but the option is there if you'd like to control everything.
You can use an xbox controller or a mouse and keyboard to do just about everything.
By the sound of it this game doesn't appeal to you the begin with anyways.
It is nothing like SC

No, the game defiantly appeals to me, and I love open world Space Sims. But from reading what others were saying I was getting concerned about the controls and needing a complicated setup just to play it.

Glad to hear that you can use only the M&K setup.

I really don't have the time to get involved in this game anyway. I've still got 5 or 6 gamers that I'm working on currently and more are coming.

So, I'm going to hold off and wait on Star Citizen. I know that game is still a year or more away. but I'm content to wait.

Just curious IB since you have had this game for a while why that particular issue was not brought up during beta?

Seems like this is a major issue that should have been addressed long ago.

I remember when there was a new windows ever 3-5 years..now its every 6 months?!? Who the fuck updates so frequently. Im on 7 and quite happy

Microsoft seems to think everyone wants to jump on to a new OS just because it looks fancy and new. sorry, but we don't. I personally can not stand the new tiled look and the gawd awful looking colors that are pale and paisley blended.

The other side of this is companies are not going to jump on board with upgrading their entire company wit ha new OS when the current one works just fine. Developers hate having to go in and make their software compatible with never Operating systems., its a nightmare.

Ill be sticking with Win 7, it works great and does everything I need it too. and It has a much better look and feel then these newer shit looking OS's

Taking a guess at this, but I get the feeling they are delaying because they saw DAI and saw some things that peeked their interest and feel that now they need to make some changes to make their game better.

From the trailer it seems like whoever wrote this story wanted a Terminator movie with a "happy lollipop" ending instead of the inevitability/bleakness of Judgement Day happening regardless.

Supposed to be a trilogy, if you can believe that. Obviously, if the first one tanks...

Curious why the 800 is shown with the classic buzzcut early on, but with longer white hair at the end of the trailer...


Arnold answered that question a few months back when he was asked. I believe he said it has something to do with this terminator being able to age to fit in better. Which makes sense if you think about it and how Skynet keeps changing the Terminators to fit in and infiltrate.

In that Scene where he said I've been waiting for you was him meeting his former Terminator self that came back in the first movie. I think it was a pretty kewl scene. I don't think the movie will bomb, I love SCIFI and the Terminator movie in general so this one is on my list to see.

BTW guys, it just entertainment, some of you I think are going a little over the deep end over a movie.
