This game is a POS. That's not personal taste. That's a fact, like death and taxes.

Browser based MMO? From Obsidian!?! What... what have you done?

I am sure they are separate teams, but it irks me to think of even 1% of Pillars of Eternity's time/resources/manpower going towards this drek.

Exactly, this is what pisses me off. Particularly for the fact that project is already paid for. They can design some good games without a doubt but they just have the worst project management of any developer. It's easy to see now their cries over the years about the publisher being the problem were all bullshit.

Obsidian is behind schedule. Gee...what a surprise.

In fairness, it's a silly time to put out such a title. There is literally a glut of games on the horizon, all competing for our dollars - and it would be a really big shame if Pillars of Eternity didn't get its share of it.

If you've played the 'Backer Beta', they are onto something special. It really is a spiritual successor to the Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale games, with all the next-gen FX bells and whistles. But, it's not quite there yet...

It has such insane potential, that it would be a shame for them to fall at the final hurdle by pushing out a poo.

Yeah, but the thing is...it's already paid for. Call me impossible but I have this thing about people meeting their commitments, keeping their promises, being on time, etc. Particularly when it's related to an agreement about something I paid in advance for. But hey, that's just me.

You could get a lawyer to get an injunction so they can only work certain hours. I actually had to do that once when I owned a few restos. Late nights, and by the time I'd wind down I'm getting to bed at 7 am, an hour or two later and the construction starts up. I asked them nicely to start after 2 pm. They looked at me like I was insane. I wrote them and my elected reps and got nothing in return. Then I had my lawyer do it stating we'd be securing an injunction and taking legal action after that. It basically stopped the next day.

A few of my neighbors were pissed about that because the construction was going on as they were coming home. So then I got some outdoor speakers and got a sound meter to read how loud I could legally crank my music...then did so at 4AM - along with bringing some staff and friends home to continue the party. Again, they got the message pretty fast. Just because you're a 9 - 5 'er doesn't mean everyone else is, so a little sympathy for the devil.

Hawkins did eventually pay more than $10 million toward his tax debt, but $26 million still remained. Because of Hawkins' continued high spending, a federal bankruptcy court refused to give him the usual bankruptcy benefit of wiping his tax burden.

But Hawkins appealed this ruling—and he doesn't have to pay those taxes, at least not for now. A recent decision [PDF] by a three-judge panel for the 9th US Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco sided 2-1 with Hawkins despite objections from a dissenting appellate judge who said that Hawkins didn't deserve a break because he was engaged in "profligate spending."

The appeals court concluded that it didn't matter whether Hawkins bought a private jet or lived the high life, so long as he wasn't willfully scheming to evade his tax burden. The majority opinion concluded [PDF] that the law was on Hawkins' side and that "bankruptcy law must apply equally to rich and poor alike."

OMFG that would be laughable if it wasn't so fucking sad. Yeah, socialism is so evil because rich pricks always pay their fair share like everyone else.

Yeah, Michael Stipes from REM for example identifies as queer over gay because he prefers men but still likes women - but not enough to be really bi, which would be about equal. So as I've always understood it, queer is that, preference for one gender - more than bi - but not entirely gay for that gender only.

Shortly after the meeting, Facebook CPO Chris Cox issued a lengthy apology, in which he admitted the site flagged LGBTQ users' accounts because of a single user's reports. He also clarified that as far as Facebook is concerned, "our policy has never been to require everyone on Facebook to use their legal name. The spirit of our policy is that everyone on Facebook uses the authentic name they use in real life. For Sister Roma, that's Sister Roma. For Lil Miss Hot Mess, that's Lil Miss Hot Mess."

So if the name I use in real life is 'Zuckerberg Sucks Cock' then that's ok is what he's saying.

Seriously, Halsy, your comments over the past year or so make me wonder if we're seeing some sort of early onset dementia unfolding. Your posts delve into knee-jerk retardation with increasingly frightening regularity.

See that there? That's called transference. It means you need real psychiatric help because you require both meds and counseling. I know you earnestly believe your Jesus/Hitler/Napoleon/et al. all rolled into one, but you're not. You're a deeply flawed, deeply delusional little man who needs help. It helps sometimes when you hear the truth from a stranger.

There is no professional requirement for a credentialed journalist to have a degree in journalism. This should be pretty common knowledge to anyone past the age of 14.

Sure there's no professional requirement, good luck getting hired on at any publication without one though.

SMA has delusions of grandeur that he's right about everything and everyone else is wrong. Nevermind he doesn't understand the difference between and a games reviewer and an actual, real journalist, he'll never let the facts get in the way of his idiotic rants. He'd be laughable if he wasn't so pathetic.

No shit crowdfunding is in decline. And watch it half again next year and the year after. Eventually it'll be a niche thing with a few wild successes but most failing to materialize.

Looks like lack of testicular fortitude by politicians has led to Ebola in the US. Might end up being a worldwide epidemic given there's no stomach for travel restrictions and quarantines.

Or there's talk of conspiracy. That the government is wanting an Ebola outbreak to further nail the coffin of civil liberties shut. But that's nut's isn't it? I mean that would be like a domestic government agency that illegally spies on everything you do anyway. Oh wait....

That's so weird. I thought you had to go to J school to be an actual real journalist. Huh, so we can just make shit up and call ourselves what we like eh? Ok, in that case you may all address me as Dr. Cutter because I'm now a physician - even though I never went to school for it.

As SC is supposed to be an online game with a persistent online universe that could be a major problem but so far they've proved themselves to be able to adapt to player feedback and with a budget this large they can afford to bring in huge updates and change the things that don't work for players.
No it wasn't suppose to be an online game, here is their Kickstarter page that I backed:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen?ref=nav_search
The emphasis is:
  • Single Player – Offline or Online(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)

  • Squadron 42 - A Wing Commander style single player mode, playable OFFLINE if you want
  • From their FAQ:
    Star Citizen will take the best of all possible worlds, ranging from a permanent, persistent world similar to those found in MMOs to an offline, single player campaign like those found in the Wing Commander series. The game will include the option for private servers, like Freelancer, and will offer plenty of opportunities for players who are interested in modding the content. Unlike many games, none of these aspects is an afterthought: they all combine to form the core of the Star Citizen experience.
    So far they aren't delivering anything in regards to the single player game. The trading, the traveling to worlds, the exploration, the game economy. All we have is a simple multiplayer dog fight sim, single player bot arena match and some racing thing. That is pretty unacceptable to me given 2 years. While I understand that these things take time, there hasn't been even a hint at the single player portion of the game. All we get is "Here is a new ship you can buy with real money so we can get another million this week." If you look at the kickstarter page you can see they were estimating a November 2014 release date. For what they have delivered so far that was a grossly negligent estimate. I mean if they estimated to ship by next month, I would have expected them to at the very least have all the modules in Alpha by now and expect some delays. But they don't even have an alpha part of the single player, the trading, or even the traveling to other worlds part.

    Spot on. That's why the game has become 'Let's see how long we can milk this.' Until the well runs dry I wouldn't expect much actual product to arrive. And even then I'll bet dollars to donuts the focus will be on the MMO part of the game - and heavily monetized at that - with SQ42 arriving very late and very short.
