Creston

I am a backer of both SC and Elite and to be honest with you I like the way Elite looks a lot more. It runs better on my system too.
Maybe I am just biased but the color scheme the way the ships leave those smoke trails, the visual effects of the heat wents and shield etc just gives me goose bumps.
Not to mention the sound effects and engine sounds, just kicks so much ass.

I think it might be a bit early to count SC out.

True but Star Citizen is going to have to improve massively to even come close to the level of fidelity in ED.
I very much agree with Spectral Meat that ED just "feels right". Maybe it's because it's all made by one team unlike SC which is made by a half dozen studios across several continents.

I guess it also helps that Braben has a very clear and distinct vision plus a very healthy sense of realism like what can be achieved within a certain budget and timeframe.

While Chris Roberts... aaahh... nevermind. Anyone who has followed SC and watched a few videos with CR will know that incoherent babbling, brainstormfarting and "we'll put everything in this game that sounds remotely cool regardless of feasibility, just keep throwing cash at us" is the Roberts modus operandi.

In the end I hope I'm wrong and we'll end up with two awesome space sims but Mr. Roberts & co are going to have to focus on actually finishing and polishing shit instead of moving from one half-assed, half-finished module to the next.

Well, both Nvidia and AMD seem to be VERY happy with where the prices are now and in spite of the obscenely high prices cards seem to be selling at a rate that they haven't seen any need to lower the prices yet.
Look, I'm hoping as much as you and everyone else in the consumer space that GPU prices will come back down into reasonable territory rather sooner than later but realistically it ain't gonna happen because there is absolutely no reason for either nVidia or AMD to drop their prices at this time.

Why should they all of a sudden drop prices and ruin their margins now? People have been buying high end gfx cards for $600 - 700 for years at this point. Rumor has it the 880 is going to be +30% faster than the 780Ti.
No way Josť. The most optimistic scenario is they'll phase out the 780Ti and offer the 880 at the same price in the ~$700 range. But knowing nVidia they will probably go $899 or $999 RRP with the 880.

I vastly prefer modern jets. This is a period that's not really on my radar so to speak.
What I'm still wondering about, too, is how they are going to integrate planes like these in the DCS world. It's getting a little weird when choppers (Blackshark, Huey etc.), the P-51 Mustang, the soon-to-be-released FW 190, the F-86 and modern jets like the Su-25, A-10, F-15 and maybe upcoming F-16, F-18, F-22, F-35 etc. are all operating within the same campaign theater.
Even if the WW2 Europe 1944 module is released it will only solve that issue partially because the F-86 still remains as an "alien plane" in between the WW2 and modern period.

I believe the plan is to make a theater/map for each war: WW2, Korean war, Vietnam etc and the Nellis AFB training zone.

Going by the current pace of development that must be scheduled for the year 2525 or something like that, right?
Also I'm not sure if it makes sense to segregate the small hardcore flight sim community like that.
DCS World isn't exactly one of the busiest online platforms on the net and if people get spread out across many different modules it's getting even more lonely for those solo players who are not members of a squadron or guild.

What's sad about this shit is that if this shit (rightfully) fails to get enough attention they'll cancel this shit and, instead of coming up with some genuinely new cool shit, they'll go back to making old shit that no one wants either.

PB please, let it go.
Gothic is still my favourite game of all time but it's time to move on...

I agree. This is like the umpteenth time they are trying to "go back to the roots" and are remaking the game that made them great in 2001.

Well, 2001 also wants its animations back by the looks of the video.
And what's up with the water in the scene where the hero was swimming? That looked crappy as hell and 2001-ish, too.

Or the very weird colorization. It looks like they copied some of the colorful stuff from Risen 2 and could not be arsed to adopt it to the "back-to-the-roots" darker and muddier style that they wanted for this iteration. So there's this weird contrast between super-flashy and overly colorful and some wannabe dark&gritty style. The result looks very amateurish.

As for the factions: Sounds like they could not make their mind up whether to have the natives again or the pirates so they went for a mix with the Voodoo pirates. Fuck that shit.
With the exception of Risen 2, it sounds like this is once again the same old crap that PB games have always had. A magic user faction (Voodoo Pirates here), a rogue faction (Demon Hunters here) and a valiant knights faction (Guardians here). Copy&paste job from the Gothics and Risen 1 as usual. Great. Creativity is overrated anyway. Big muzzerfuggin' yawn.

Overall definitely Steam sale material. Wake me up when it's sub $10, kthx.

Ummm... for those tits among you who are all like "meh I'm not being entertained and have to find my own way which is bullshit" would you kindly STFU kthx and maybe do some basic research about the Elite legacy?
This game has never been like the Wing Commanders. Elite is sort of like the Elder Scrolls in space where you have to find your own adventure in a huge open world. If you want BioWhore-like every step of the way handholding story-telling then this is not the game you are looking for. Move along.
