You didn't really feel like a "bad guy", you weren't a Sith. You were a pilot in the Imperial Navy. Many of the missions revolved around fighting pirates and smugglers.

I know... I still played the game back in the day but never enjoyed it as much as the X-Wing games because sitting in anything "TIE" just felt... wrong

Too true! But Strike Commander was always more of a shallow technical marvel than an awesome fun game.

I actually enjoyed the gameplay a lot. Managing the money and resources between missions, being able to choose the next mission, then choosing your wingman (wing-woman), equipping your plane with a weapon loadout appropriate for the mission and appropriate for you as a pilot and then playing through the at least half-decent story (especially for an action flight sim) was way beyond just the scope of a "technical marvel" back in the day (strictly IMHO ofc).

Never was a big fan of TIE Fighter because the bad guys but I'll definitely pick up the X-Wing bundle at some point. Realistically I don't think there's too much fun to be had with the really old ones though.
I picked up Strike Commander the day it came out and was super-eager to get back into it as I loved it to death back in the day and... well, let's just say that I have rarely ever uninstalled a new purchase as quickly as that. Some games are better off being a nostalgic memory.

When CDProjekt makes a trailer, you watch the trailer.

In this case, no. I don't want to spoil the glorious moment when I will finally start playing the Enhanced Edition.

[x] Dim lights
[x] Fridge stocked to the brim with snacks and drinks
[x] Click the exe for the first time, popping the cherry and enjoying the intro in all its full cinematic in-game glory

Watching it prior on YT is kinda like cyber sex instead of the real deal.

I think they're better than Blizzard.

Agreed.

So does this freebie include the single player campaign or is it just the multiplayer?

both, it's all inclusive when you install it.

Thanks. I guess I'll give it a shot then to see if it's better than part deux.

The real question is, why would anyone with the money to be able to run games at 4K not be using a 4K monitor?

Poor scaling, limited choice of displays compared to 1080p or 1440p, high prices. Just off the top of my head.

There really isn't anything to complain about here though. DSR is a free totally optional feature addition on the driver level. If you enable it, you get a few more resolution options within the games you play. Finding out whether you like or can run DSR is as simple as changing the resolution in the game, play a bit and decide whether to just go fuck it and revert back to 1080p/1440p or maybe try a lower DSR level.

What's not to like here? It couldn't be easier and more simple to fiddle around with graphical quality enhancements - or not... in my limited testing experience the quality boost depends a lot on the game and its engine.
Anyway, even according to the feature description in the control panel, it's mostly a feature to spruce up the quality of older games. I'd say it works quite nicely in that regard. Not all (older) games support proper AA so DSR is a nice, free way to enhance the visuals a little.

Flight sims aren't exactly the most popular genre so it seems kinda strange that this dev would intentionally try to piss off as many simmers as possible but fair enough, they won't be getting any of my business. Fuck those guys big time.

Ah another one to wait for the complete edition. They're making it easy not to spend any money on games this fall season.

Are they? A lot of pretty good games have been coming out recently, and there are more to come I am sure. It's going to be a very tough choice for a lot of people.

Yep. But all of those games come with DLC season passes or announcements of upcoming DLCs.
I got a backlog and I got time. I'll buy SoM, AI, Evil Within, FC4 etc. when the complete editions are on sale Xmas next year or whenever.
If I could buy a complete game now, I might have been tempted to splurge cash for some of those games at full price but no way am I gonna support that retarded DLC season pass bullshit business practice.

The installer crashed when I opened the advanced settings menu while patching.

Am I reading this right?

You were patching the product.

While running the product AND trying to modify its settings.

And you think the fact that it crashed at that point is a bug?

Is that accurate?

You might want to get a clue before putting on an accusatory tone, Mr. Dumbass Internet Attorney.
He was trying to change the launcher's settings while the launcher app was patching the game.
Nothing wrong with that or would you also suggest that people should by all means stop using Windows while it is downloading updates?
See. It usually shouldn't be an issue at all to go into the settings menu while the patcher is doing its job.

Oh I agree that the mouse turreting needs to be fixed, and I'm sure it will be. And I play with a Warthog HOTAS as well as Pedals.

I believe that you are very mistaken. The days when Star Citizen was going to raise maybe a million or two and focus on hardcore space sim freaks are long gone.
This game has gone fully mainstream a long time ago and Roberts the greedy little bitch knows very well what he's doing when he's making the game extremely keyboard/mouse (and controller) friendly.
At this point he can easily afford to lose some 50K or even 100K HOTAS freaks while keeping 500K+ keyboard/mouse/controller gamers and tapping into the huge potential pool of fresh meat non-SC backers who are also mostly (99%+) going to be keyboard/mouse/controller gamers because anyone with a remote interest in space/flight sims must have heard of this game by now.

There has been a very clear trend recently where CIG has distanced itself from distinguishing between original, veteran and new backers (while in the process pissing off the original backers more than once). They are sending a clear signal that the old guard is no longer relevant. Chris Roberts is a megalomaniac. His head has left orbit ever since this game crossed the $10 million line or so. He wants it all now. He wants to be the next WoW. In space.

That's why you and me (I got a Warthog HOTAS and pedals as well) can go and fuck ourselves. We are irrelevant. This game is going to be very keyboard/mouse/controller friendly like a Freelancer 2.0.
I wouldn't even be surprised one bit if 3rd person reticule combat mode is announced before too long ("due to popular demand").

I wish to be proven wrong but to me it's very obvious that this game is fully headed the P2W casual gamer mainstream way now.

Those indies are nuts, man. Releasing Legend of Grimrock 2 or this one against titles like Shadow of Mordor, Alien Isolation, Borderlands Presequel, Evil Within, and soon to be released and thus in hype train mode Dragon Age Inquisition and Far Cry 4 = balls of steel.

Different audiences? Also at this point when is a good time to release a game?

July and August were pretty slow this year. As for different audiences: Maybe, maybe not. Nothing wrong with word of mouth traveling from the original audience to the greater gamer demographic, right? But the greater gamer demographic is going to be busy with all of the high profile releases for the next few months.
This was particular bad timing unless the devs of LoG 2 and GK (and other indies releasing now) are totally fine with their niche status and niche sales numbers.
The Vanishing of Ethan Carter has only sold 50K copies so far so the writing's on the wall for any indies releasing now. I wish them luck. They're gonna need it.
