News Comments > Limit Theory Video

The only thing he's contracted out for so far is the music. It will be really interesting to see how he comes up with the ship and station designs. So far, not his strong suit at all, but we'll see. Could be a potential thing to contract out.

There will be no cockpit view a la E:D. He said he doesn't have time for that. Plus it would block the view of space, and he's all about that view of space.

He toyed around with planetary landings and flying around planets, and it looked fantastic, but he nixed that for this version.

Apparently he's 23 and lives with his folks, so, yeah, he might be paying for food, a bit for rent, computer hardware and internet, probably covered under his parent's health care until he's 26 (thanks Obamacare!), etc. so $180K could go a long, long way.

The game will apparently be totally moddable, so any weak spots that the game ships with should be corrected by the mod community.

So, Blue, did they teach you anything like this?

I love Kickass.

the unfocused and rambling nature of these videos has become more and more telling as time goes by

limit theory looks pretty damn good, especially the futuristic UI.. but i think the guy needs to hire a team so he can get more content thrown in there, and also meet deadlines quicker... i dont think there is anyway it will be moderately complete before next year, even if it is released sooner

Yeah, you're spot on IMO. I think averaging 4 hours a sleep per night for two years is starting to wear on him a bit. He wants to launch Q2 2015, but it feels at this pace it's at least a year away.

Still the continuous progress is impressive for a single person and the organic environments look fantastic, but the artificial ones need a ton of work.

I am wondering what the actual gameplay will be like though.

Also, I suspect that Tie Fighter accident scene video might be faked.

I know, right? WHITE stormtroopers flying a Tie Fighter? Totally fake!

It's funny that the other day the MPAA totally pissed Google off when Google was actually trying to help them.

Hrm, somewhat interesting, although PoE's disconnects and desyncs were so bad I don't know if I want to bother going back to try it. I can only imagine the amount of teleporting and lag-instakills that'll be going on.

That said, I haven't played PoE in months, maybe it has improved a bit.

Have you played it recently? I played it a month ago and had no issues, unlike the beta where I was frequently disconnected.

Pretty balsy move in America today Blue. You must feel confident that no one is going to whip out a gun and empty it in you.

If Blue lived in Florida or Texas, I'd agree with you. Dead Rifle

But in suburban NY, it's pretty safe, especially if it's a recognizable neighbor.

That honking the horn garbage makes my blood pressure rise. EVERYONE has a cell phone, some more than 1 - yet for some stupid reason, neanderthals feel the need to use the horn on their vehicle. Lazy inconsiderate bastards....

One would think that as an officer of the law, there'd be something you could do about that...

half the dialogue in interstellar i missed cause of some loud booming eating up all the midrange and clipping into a distorted mess. can't stand that shit. <3 my home theatre.

There's actually a problem with the Interstellar mix. I couldn't hear a bunch of dialog either. And some movie blogs reported the same thing. First time ever for a movie in a theatre for me.

Yup. So stupid. Assume all PC users are pirates. That being said, I don't think Netflix or Amazon care either way. I'm sure that the studios are forcing them to do this.

This Film Is Not Yet Rated tells you all you need to know about the corruption of the MPAA. It's all on youtube. Fascinating stuff.

Also, I've been reading Josh's logs for the past few weeks, and he might be coming apart at the seams a bit. I just hope he holds it together until it ships.

Thanks lads. Totally forgot about Limit Theory. Josh's work is impressive, but it seems like he still has a very long way to go yet.

He's about six weeks late on his "monthly" update, but it's supposed to drop in the next 24 hours. I do agree, he's way too optimistic about how much more work he has to do. He's expecting to be done Q2 2015, but seems like he's at least a year out. At least.
