News Comments > Star Wars: Attack Squadrons Revealed
56. Re: Star Wars: Attack Squadrons Revealed May 24, 2014, 17:41 theyarecomingforyou
 
This game looked like a trainwreck to begin with, so I'm not surprised it was cancelled. It looks like Disney is taking the Star Wars brand seriously and doesn't want its image tarnished by half-assed games like this.

It would be awesome to see LucasArts licence the Star Citizen engine and produce a high-fidelity Star Wars game, a spiritual successor to Tie Fighter. I have less than zero interest in a F2P casual game like this abortion.

The Blue's News organisation is up to 9 members now. Hopefully that will rise significantly after launch, as I know most people are waiting for the final game before picking it up.

For anyone who hasn't been keeping up, CIG is planning to introduce ship upgrades that will let you keep LTI. That will be great for those with the basic Aurora looking to upgrade to say the 300i.

The results of The Next Great Starship aren't far away now - I'm rooting for Four Horsemen.

Yeah, let's all be harsh on this game and the people behind it. How dare they make you pay for early access to alpha and beta?
Seriously, let's be harsh on it. Anyone who backed SC at the time got full alpha and beta access as well as the final game for just $35, less than the cost of a regular AAA game. You can still pick up the game and alpha access to the DFM for $35. Meanwhile ED costs $150, which is three times the cost of a normal finished game. So yeah, fuck them.

Yawn. It's time to move onto another game rather than rehashing the same thing over and over and over and over and over. Still, they're going to have to work hard to catch up with King's Bounty, which has taken flogging a dead horse to a whole new level.

Did they really use uncompressed audio? Wall

Halo was pretty bad on PC. It was a game people had to play, especially after all the hype before it was announced it would be a console exclusive, but it was impossible to avoid the conclusion it would have been much, much better as a PC / Mac exclusive.

You do realize that a LIVING wage - not MINIMUM wage - makes for a much stronger economy, right? No, of course you don't. When America was at its peak it had strong unions, trade protectionism, and corporations and the rich actually paid taxes. Yet, for some reason your ilk thought it was best to end all that. Well you see how that's worked out. Oh wait, you don't because you still think millionaires and billionaires still deserve more and working stiffs still deserve less.
This. The US was most successful when it had extremely high taxes on the rich and workers were respected and protected. Nowadays it's all about how people can step on those below them to get further up the chain.

Providing a living wage to people at the bottom doesn't in any way diminish what those further up the chain have. People who partake in the system should be rewarded for that, not given a wage that barely covers themselves let alone any family they might have. What's worse is that taxpayers pick up the tab for all the tax breaks required to supplement the minimum wage. Companies like Walmart are actually a net drain on the economy.

I'm really looking forward to Tropico 5, what with the addition of co-op and multiplayer. It's a surprisingly addictive formula and one of the few games to hold my attention for any period of time. It's a nice change to Civ 5, which I play far too much.

News Comments > Oculus Responds to ZeniMax Accusations
38. Re: Oculus Responds to ZeniMax Accusations May 5, 2014, 15:38 theyarecomingforyou
 
ZeniMax wanted a stake in the Oculus Rift and threw its toys out of the pram when it couldn't get its way, cancelling the Doom 3 edition that was going to support it. Carmack wrote some code for Doom 3 to get it to support the OR but that remains with ZeniMax, so that's irrelevant.

ZeniMax wants money for doing nothing. It's the epitome of sleazy capitalism. ZeniMax can fuck off and die in a ditch.

News Comments > Unreal Tournament Reveal Teased for Next Week
33. Re: Unreal Tournament Reveal Teased for Next Week May 3, 2014, 06:55 theyarecomingforyou
 
The original game was the best. Each subsequent release lost some of the magic and became more arcadey.

Given what we saw with the Deus Ex mock-up in UE4, now is probably the right time to be looking at a new UT game.

My concern is that the gameplay that made the original game so fun is just too dated now. I don't play competitive FPS games like I used to.

Why would everyone else need to stop? They'd still be flying their ships or doing whatever they want outside. That's half the point (and appeal) of the game - everything's seamlessly happening in the same general instance while you're flying around space, boarding ships, engaging in FPS combat, etc.

Don't think of this as a limited, linear space sim where everyone has to be stuck doing the same thing. If anything it's more like an FPS where everyone just happens to be using these ultra-detailed, ultra-customizable spaceships as vehicles that one can get in and out of at any time.
Exactly. It's like any FPS with vehicles - Half-Life 2, Battlefield 4, Titanfall, etc - in that everything is done from the first person perspective, only you spend the majority of your time in the space ships.

Kind of like a first person version of FTL.

Except no Rockmen.
Speaking of which, I finally defeated the Rebel Flagship with the Zoltan Cruiser last night. That game is tough.

So how is the fps supposed to work? Do you launch a different .exe if Monday nights are FPS night or something? Or are you supposed to fly somewhere and then meet with a bunch of other people that have flown there and then death match?
It's all part of the game. In fact in its most basic form it's already playable with the hangar module, as you can walk around your ship and use the mounted turret in the hangar. You'll be able to board ships, fight on space stations and visit planets. It's based on CryEngine, so FPS is a natural fit.

The scope of this game is really impressive and a lot of thought has been put into everything. For instance, the economy is entirely modelled out - it's a separate module that will interact with the Persistent Universe. Same with the Organisations, which are already accessible.

Before this topic is filled with the inevitable Hitler references, I thought I'd mention the Blue's News organisation. I'm looking forward to flying with some of the Blue's crew.

I'm all for high quality textures but RAGE was 25GB and it looked like ass - worse than any game with conventional texturing. The textures in the trailer for this don't look good at all, so I have no idea why it would need so much space.

If a game has 50GB worth of textures and looks better as a result then I'm all for it but it's an insult if the game looks bad.

Yeah, I'm a golden ticket holder too and should be able to get to play it quite early on. I've just got the Aurora.
