I don't get the hate for businesses trying new things to acquire money. Making money is the point of a business after all. And it's not like they switched their entire business model to this. I see this as an attempt to try something new(however silly it is). It will probably fail, but good on them for giving it a shot.

I should be given everything for free in life!

I guess that I just assumed that most people had a reliable Internet connection these days. I've had mostly reliable service going all the way back to the 80's when I had a 2400 baud dial-up telnet account.

I don't see the big deal either. I mainly play in Solo mode and I don't really care if it's pulling in data from the server now and then. You don't have to deal with other players at all in solo mode.

I read that they have a "Historically Accurate" mode where the French surrender as soon as you draw your weapon.

Facebook is making some smart business moves. That friend to friend payment could be huge.

Yeah, it should make blackmail soooo much easier!

No... it's if you buy this crappy DLC the next crappy 'new one' is free.

I think I'll pass, egosoft and no I'm not going to give them any credit no matter how many times they keep patching this unpolished turd of a game.

Hmmm maybe the OS needs to be located on C: then? All I know is the game hangs on loading unless a map a virtual c: drive that redirects to my e: drive.

I already know what is causing the initial load screen hangs... Somewhere in the DRM an idiot hardcoded C: drive as the drive that MUST have the game installed.

Everytime I want to play, I have to open to oped the CMD window and type subst C: E:\ to map a virtual C: drive that redirects to my E: drive that contains Win7 and the game. After that it loads and plays just fine.

The steam forums are filled with people reporting that the game does not load or if it does load it's full of random crashes. For me, as soon as I run it, I get a black screen and then it hangs.

The "Official" 'Please post your issues here' thread on steam is over 1,200 posts and it's only been a day. Found here

I bet he also goes to a nice private school. I feel sorry for the kids that have to deal with some of these lazy, tenured blobs of stupidity that are now teaching in public schools.

 No, I'm not talking about all public school teachers... I'm sure you've already come across the ones I'm referring to.

For a second there I though that CR had announced an expansion for a game that's years away from release. Wouldnt even surprise me. Not one little bit.

Wouldn't surprise me if you suffer from chronic constipation, not one little bit.

I don't think you can judge whats going on behind the scenes in production from just a few press blurbs. We'll have to wait and see what happens. Chris Roberts has an impressive track record of delivering some awesome games back in the day.

If he doesn't deliver with SC, his career in the gaming industry will be over for good. He will lose respect and all of his achievements will become worthless. There will be no recovery from failure since he took $50mil directly from the pockets of gamers. If that's not enough motivation for him NOT to fail then he'll deserve the brutal end to his career that he will get.

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.

It's flight model is not heavily based on Newtonian physics like Elite 2 and 3 were. That model may be more realistic but much less fun IMO.

Since I played the original Elite on my Commodore 64 as a kid, I just had to get into the beta. I'm pleased to say that I'm not disappointed.

I love the flight model, along with the whine of the engines as you change speed, it just feels like you're in a ship. It's not Newtonian, but it's not arcadish either. System management, speed, angle of attack, situational awareness all come into play during combat. I think they just nailed it, and I hope it won't change much before release. Just docking at a station is fun yet challenging.

For a beta it's also very stable. Glad I got it.
