...and the S42 team has been developing the campaign, which will be released episodically next year...
They can go fuck themselves with their episodic content. I had a small tiny tingling hope that this game would turn out ok, that is crushed now.

Pretty much the same sentiment here. I only care about
Star Citizen because I want a good single-player space-fighter-sim-etc, with a reasonable story to follow when the mood strikes when not exploring an open world, something like a new Privateer 2.

Episodes? I'll wait until they're all done then play them all as a game.
Which you're perfectly entitled to do. The advantage of episodic is that it gets the game out quicker and it allows CIG to incorporate feedback into future episodes.

And the big disadvantage is that they once again look like lying shitbags now.
When this game was originally pitched to us, they promised us an epic Wing Commander-like saga with a branching campaign but everything bigger, better and more awesome.
Welp. Not gonna happen. We're now getting a linear on rails episodic format. Yay?

And "quicker?". ROFL. You do realize that the FULL Squadron 42 was originally supposed to come out in about a month from now, right?
According to the livestream we're now getting THE FIRST EPISODE at the end of 2015. That's a full year delay for only 20% of what was originally promised. Wow! That's quick!

26G? Is that all on-disk DLC or something? How are games getting shorter and simpler, yet use up more and more disk space?

Simpler? FUCK YES!

Shorter? FUCK NO!

According to some BioWare dude DAI is s'posed ta be a 200 hour game.

Once again AMD does right to the community and consumers and yet you'll buy a NVIDIA.

Does it ever occur to you that there might be more relevant purchase reasons than "doing right by the community" (what community, the 0.01% Linux gamers?) like say, proper cooling and non-noisy fans? You ever heard an R290 ? My 670GTX is near silent despite 3 fans.

^ this ... not the community's fault that AMD's cards are simply spoken pieces of utter shite

I must misunderstand project planning and management or they've really gone of the rails. I don't get how more stretch goals are realistic or reasonable.

As you can see, the stretch goal is a ship vote and the winner gets moved near the top of the production pipeline. As you can also see, they have really come up with very "creative" ship roles just to increase the number of possible votes and ships.

All of this has just one purpose, of course: To be able to offer up many more ships sales in "you guys asked for it" fashion.
Every ship sale adds at worst a few 100K or, if it is a "limited" and/or LTI ship, often times $2+ million to the counter.
People at the forums are begging on their knees for more sales and for more info when a sale might happen so they can start saving up for it.

Of course all of this has nothing to do with being "realistic" but from a management and marketing perspective it is certainly highly "reasonable" to milk the suckers as long and as often as possible.

As for realism, CIG is nuts. Look at the ship roles. Except for the announced plain old regular combat (PvE and PvP dogfighting), boarding, capital ship gameplay, smuggling, salvaging, exploration/charting, trading, racing and bounty-hunting which all by themselves are already insanely complex systems, CIG also needs to design gameplay systems for search & rescue, passenger transportation, space "live" repairs, minelaying, minesweeping, and recon.

We're talking decades of design and implementation work here to really flesh out these systems to any level of fidelity that would warrant the "BDSSE" (best damn space sim ever) title.
IMHO it is microwave length short-sighted by CIG to just cough up these ship roles only to have moar sales when any of these ships and the underlying gameplay systems are MANY YEARS away from completion.
It's also setting completely unrealistic expectations. People at the forums are having wild fantasies about every single ship role that just will not realistically be implemented in the next ten years - if ever.

And that's why this game is doomed to fail. CIG will never be able to create all these gameplay systems to a level that it's fun for everyone. It's way too big and way too much work to even keep a fraction of people happy. Look at other MMOs where it always takes ages before important issues are addressed or before any new meaningful content is added. Star Citizen will never be able to keep up with people's demands for fleshed out gameplay systems and new content. Just balancing all of the many ships against each other and giving each one a meaningful role is going to be an epic task.
One day people will realize that CIG bit off chunks more than they can chew thanks to their megalomaniac CEO and then: mass exodus, game over.

News Comments > DICE: BF4 Launch "Absolutely" Damaged Player Trust
19. Re: DICE: BF4 Launch Oct 8, 2014, 11:57 CJ_Parker
 
Yep. They can go and fuck themselves - hard. Luckily I haven't bought BF4 and won't buy this POS either. Quality issues aside, the pricing is outrageous, too.
$50 for the game and another $50 for premium = $100 for, if it technically works at all and isn't ruined by cheaters, a mildly entertaining multiplayer game at best. One hundred fucking bucks. Keep right on dreaming, EA.

News Comments > Star Wars: The Old Republic Expansion Announced

The new missions might be fun but what for? Only to end up at level 60 and to go back to grinding dailies or to stealth-rush through the same FPs (and OPs but only if you have a guild and lots of free time) over and over and over again. Yawn. What a bore.
They'd have to completely change the entire end game to ever rekindle my interest in this game.
As it stands, the game is decent as long as you are leveling up through the well executed class stories. But once you're max level, it turns into an uninspired retarded repetitive grindfest with very poor gameplay just like most other MMOs.

Fuck yeah let's execute some no-knock warrants on the wrong homes and maybe flashbang a 6 month old in their crib.

Flashbanging six months olds is kinda boring cuz them fuckers are way too small to really get annoyed and you can't even knock them off their feet cuz they are already lying down in their crib. Fuck, if you're really unlucky they might even think it's some kinda new game or summin'.
Nah dude. They gotta be quite a bit older so you and them can truly enjoy the fireworks!
