News Comments > X-Rebirth DLC Free to Preorder

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.

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.

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.

Any fool that pays Derek Tart $100 for early access to this PoS should be instantly put into a mental institution.

I guess Derek's rich mommy ran out of money and can't finance his digital turds anymore. Sell that mars rock, jackass.

I've had no performance issues with this one, put everything at Ultra and am using Temporal SMAA, whatever that means. But it's probably the best looking game I've ever played. Have a 780GTX though.

Same here. I have a GTX 780Ti, 8gb RAM, and an old i7 920 CPU. I have everything maxed at 1920x1080. No stuttering at all and it looks great. They listed the 'ultra' specs required to run this game with ultra settings, weeks before release, and it said gtx 780 and up.

The driving is impossible without running into every other thing down the street. I keep my X360 controller right there just for the driving, and it helps somewhat. With keyboard and mouse I can't even go to the next mission checkpoint without running down 3 or 4 pedestrians.

I play the whole game with the controller. I'm just used to playing this type of game with a controller, so I guess it doesn't bother me much.

My biggest gripe is the MP. The tailing and hacking game. I hate it. Thank god you can turn it off. Last time I tried it I managed to hack the guy up to 96%, before he saw me and shot me. Then I lost points. So the whole ordeal, the rather good hiding job I did turned out to be a waste of time that cost me in the end. And the last guy that was tailing me made no attempt to hide. He sat in the fanciest sports car, started the hack, and when I spotted him, bolted off at the speed of light. I had no chance to catch him. He just hit the freeway and poof, was gone. He gained points.

Hmmmmm the MP is quite good once you learn how it all works. When you are being hacked, the hacker has to stay in the search area.. if he runs, you will get the points. Finding the hacker can be hard if he knows a good hiding spot. Use your signal jammers to give yourself more time.

I know others are not having the same luck, but I'm very happy with the game. I have GTA5 on the 360 and I was going to get it for the PC also when it eventually get's released, now I'll probably pass since I have this to keep me occupied till Rockstar gets around to porting RDR.

I guess that is just one of those 'Either you love it or hate it' type games.

Average slob dies of an overdose, shove him in a bag then shove him in the ground.

Rich, movie star, slob dies from an overdose, call out the national guard and hunt down the dealers no matter how much it costs.
