Count me in. From what I've seen of the recent gameplay videos, it looks like firearms are a little too hard to come by.


Probably why it's free. If you want a firearm, gotta pay hard real-world cash.

Something is going to have to give there before I'm getting a 4K monitor.
Yeah most new cards have dp

Most new cards like a little dp action?!
Shocked

Given that they have more than one port, and typically two are getting plugged in at once, I'd have to say "Yes." Double pluggetration.

Not to be confused with DVDA.


Or MDMA. Which is what you'd have to be on to be uninhibited enough to buy this game.

Seems weird that they would support a display resolution that's likely out reach for many but don't have out of the box support for something that's likely much more common.


Yeah, it's just typical marketing bullshit: "Supports 4K!!2121"

I'm reminded of when MS came out with Win XP. They marketed the shit out of it on TV and stuff. You had people going into stores asking about it that didn't even own a computer.

I mentioned before, if they're going to reboot it, why not just flesh out their own GalCiv universe? Star Control 2 was virtually a reboot of Starflight, they didn't need the license to make a great game. And I think it's been made amazingly clear over the years that you can steal practically everything but names out of a video game; there's little or no protection on gameplay or graphics. What's the advantage here, at all?

There's no protection on gameplay, but there is protection on graphics. That being said, I'm all for spiritual successors. I'd much rather have the gameplay with different lore than no game at all. I do see the draw of expanding on a beloved IP if possible though.

Because aside from Chris Taylor's experience 20 years ago making space sims...

See, it is coming. Chris Taylor is on board for the RTS module of Star Citizen. I KNEW IT!!!

Not sure I see a problem with that. IT WOULD BE AWESOME.

Justly deserved mocking for posting before coffee.

But actually I always thought that a modern day space sim could seriously use a fleet commander seat like Homeworld or Ender's Game.

Fleet commander would be in charge of assigning waypoints and target priority, backup, etc... As a pilot, you have a "score" split between pilot ability and how readily you follow orders. If we're doing open matchups commanders can decide if they want hotshots or team players. At the end of every engagement, wingmen get to thumbs up or thumbs down their commander. If more than one commander wants to command a battle (and it's not big enough for multiple commanders), then whoever has the highest community rating wins the commander's seat.

In something like a guild this would be far more structured. Voice comms would let you talk to your wing and to your wing commander. Wing commanders talk to each other and command. Command talks to wing commanders.

In a basically MMO scenario like this you could probably request escalation/support at the command level, bringing in more commanders at risk of more resources gambled on the fight. Sort of like a doubling cube in backgammon.

I'd also break down guilds into smaller options. Fleets of course for the big guilds, but for the smaller guilds let them fly as merc wings that can be drafted into the fight. Potentially neutral mercs that can be drafted by either side.

The problem is that fleet commanders would end up being very hands off, and that's something I'm not sure if people would be ready for. I guess you could give them limited control over cap ships and defenses and whatnot to keep things a little more interesting, but generally speaking you have to do a whole lotta back-seat driving.

I'm the guy with the TA avatar. So not mocking at all.

Fleet Commanders would be something like guilds in WoW, really require a lot of people, commitment, organization, etc. That would be pretty hard, although seems like Eve has some of that. Would love it for the SP part of the game though. Some kind of sandbox RTS that uses all the SC pieces.

I really don't think too many people here are interested in this game. And you'll be even more hard pressed to find someone who will pay $60 for it.

It's on Steam

Just not visible to the public via store search but it is on steam actual too

http://store.steampowered.com/app/271590/

There are also people testing the game on PC via Steam right now ,)

That's clever. How'd you discover that little trick?

I stopped playing This War of Mine. It ended up depressing me.

Really on the fence on that one. I've been watching some lets plays and it looks fantastic, from a gameplay perspective. But yeah, the subject matter is extremely depressing. It kind of reminds me of Papers, Please (both being stuck in a regime where you're trying to survive and optionally help (or screw over) other people), but at least with PP, there were brief pieces of humor, here and there. War just looks depressing as fuck (which, in all fairness, it should be).

Either way, I commend the devs. It leaves you with something to think about, and remember this kind of shit actually happens in the world (while you and I have our nice hot dinners with roofs over our heads, etc).

Yeah, I avoided picking it up during the Steam sale recently for this very reason. When I was young and single and carefree, I may have gone for it, but these days I have enough depressing stuff in RL and don't need it in my games as well.

The most glaring thing up there is Destiny in the GotY category. Reviews and word of mouth on that game have said it's just okay. Seems like DA:I should be in that spot.

Otherwise, I'd say there are a lot of games on these lists that have either impressed me this year, or are on my wishlist. This is one of the best lists of the best games of 2014 I've seen yet.

Also, no Call of Duty on this list at all. If it were truly Pay to Play, you'd expect to see that somewhere on the list. And I guess the one surprise is that South Park didn't make any category. I'm really enjoying that game, and thought not only does it have a great (South Parkian) narrative, but also great gameplay.
