Bravo. Scores are pretty meaningless and I hate them. Even if the recommend system is essentially a 4 star system, because it contains within it the context there is less room for ambiguity about what the number means.

Wanted to give this a try but don't really do mobile. If it's a decent port I may check it out - screenshots aren't bad.

The prototype was made in 4 months. 4 months. Obviously they are focusing on getting the systems running at this point and not graphical polish!

Anyway the ideas sound great, and the team is solid and proven. No qualms backing here... but probably not one of the higher tiers.

They've earned it. A great product with consistent support and care.

I hope it never leaves alpha, announcement notwithstanding! Updates forever and funny videos to go along with them!

The game has really changed a heckuva lot since I last played, but I haven't been in a simmy mood for a while.

Making a smurfs game is dumb. Copywright law is dumb. Suing a freeware homebrew amiga game with 50 downloads is EXTRA dumb. Fining only 2000? Not bad!

From the whining on blues lately you'd think straight white males were the victims.

How dare anybody complain about rape/death threats, or discuss their viewpoint on a video game!?!

A) We are the victims because we're all lumped in as everything that's wrong in the world when it's absolutely untrue. In spite of the fact that we're the ones who actually make the world a better place to live. And we have to deal with racism in the form of Affirmative Action, etc.

B) Faking rape/death threats for fun and profit is disgusting. If you actually believe for a second they're real I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you cheap.

This breakdown shows Anita is a pretty good scam artist. That doesn't make most white males "victims". If I'm a victim, hooray. I make a lot of money, don't work very hard, and have a plethora of media aimed squarely at me to take the edge off. It's the life. I reeeeeally don't deserve to have it so easy. Should I feel bad or ashamed to have it so easy? No, that's not right either. But I know where I am. And I'm freaking secure enough in my own self worth not to get all huffy if people point out what a nice tower I am sitting atop. I mean, what can they say? I'm sitting in a tower! A tower that, for the most part, I was born into.

As for the fake death threats, I'll just assume you are implying that the threats actually occurred, but the people giving them were never intending to carry through. But I've heard people claim she made them up. With the amount of hate that is aimed at her, I would be extremely surprised if she had not received any threats. Perhaps she blew it out of proportion - but how can you tell the difference between a real threat and a fake one? In a world where people send SWAT into peoples homes just because it's funny, and hack and post private information about people they want to silence, you have to be careful.

After seeing the dated graphics the sense of nostalgia dies pretty quick. It'd be nice if they were re-released with updated HD graphics. Look at Resident Evil for example, they can do the same here.

Pah. Give me the originals. Most of the time people try to "update" things it makes them worse. I like GoG because for the most part that's what you get - the games you used to like (or the games you wanted to like but missed) - without trying to pretty them up and make them palatable to a modern audience - and in a playable state on modern computers.

Wow, what a press release. It's almost like it was sarcastically written by one of us.

It's games for windows and shadowrun all over again. Come on guys.

Yeah their games have been pretty good efforts, but kind of fall in the weird category that's not quite good enough to be AAA and not unique or cute enough to be indie.

Okay.

Somehow I didn't expect it so soon.

Why is this and GTA V going to be released in the same month as a conference I have to go to? :/

I guess I'm the only one who found GTA 5 to be not great? I mean, some of the heists were cool and you didn't have to haul your cousin to titty bars every 15 minutes of gameplay but 5 overall kind of went over lukewarm for me.

I already paid 60 bucks for it when it came out last generation. Even with a technical overhaul, it's the same story and the same old shit.

There are a few of us who haven't played it yet.

News Comments > PC Grand Theft Auto V Delayed to March; Specs Revealed
63. Re: PC Grand Theft Auto V Delayed to March; Specs Revealed Jan 13, 2015, 19:24 saluk
 
There are two things that happened here:

1. They are delaying it because it's not ready
2. They weren't ready.

Hooray for fact #1.

Rockstar you really royally suck for fact #2.

That is all. There is no excuse for making PC gamers wait through 2 complete and on time console launches and STILL not having the game come out on PC when you actually said it would. The only explanation is that you just don't care about PC gamers. That's the only take-away here. If you can coordinate a launch on two separate systems and be so successful with those launches twice in a row, how can you not coordinate an on-time launch on one other system?

And it feels pretty crappy.

I'll have someone buy this for me in the next Christmas sale or something, because at this point I might as well just wait and spend my money on other things.

I appreciate the runners-up in almost every category more than the nominees. I love the "best tech" awards going to games using the same tech they used 2 years ago lol.

That being said, the people who did back it seem pretty happy for the most part. I'm mainly curious more than anything else, I hope it turns out well for people. When there is an official "1.0" type milestone for the aggregate product I will probably check it out.

From what Ive seen, most of the people who dug deep into their pockets for this claim that they are getting as much enjoyment from the development of Starcitizen itself as from any game, they dont even care that it might go south at some point. Madness.

I gotta give it to Chris Roberts, either the guy is lucky as fuck or there is some serious genius going on inside his head...

Yeah I don't get people just dumping money into this game. On the other hand, for a small buy-in there is a certain appeal now. The pvp has reached a decent level of activity, and where-else in the market do you see a competitive arena space-sim with a huge community like this?
