Arse. Us europeans have to wait another 2 days.
I thought we'd moved away from this bullshit staggered release dates, especially with DLC.................

News Comments > Warhammer Online Goes Free Until Closure
12. Re: Warhammer Online Goes Free Until Closure Nov 4, 2013, 02:54 PsychoMoggieBagpuss
 
Biggest problem with this game was the balance between the two factions.
Everyone played the greenskin/chaos side, so those on the other side got fedup of being outnumbered in open world and rerolled, exacerbating the problem. Three factions would have avoided this problem (and was what worked for DAOC).
I enjoyed Tor-anroc on my female ironbreaker (aptly named Bridget The Midget), but I can imagine a lot of people getting pissed off after I punted them into the lava for the umpteenth time.

Seems to be mainly mudslinging at Oculus. Hoped for better.
Not sure whether thats the way the castar team are playing it or just the slant put on the interview by the "journalists" at eurogamer....

As much as I like Steam, their customer service just isn't up to handling it and their policy of no refunds makes casual shopping a pain in the ass.

Those of us in the UK can get refunds on games that don't work under local law (sales of goods act, distance selling regulations), not sure what its like for the rest of europe.
You'll get the initial pushback, just follow up and you'll then get the refund and the game will no longer show in your library.

Seriously, the MMO demographic (especially current and ex-EVE players) is very strong in this one.
I don't play eve. I play goons in space, though at the moment I'm just changing skills on my accounts while waiting for us to go to war (Fountain lasted shorter than I'd hoped :().
Eve/Star Citizen aren't mutually exclusive. You're not going to get the thousands of players shooting each other in Star Citizen.
You're also not getting orbit/keep at range or fucking sentry drone assist. People are going to play both (I know I am).

Doesn't Occam's razor point to the fact that people just want to play this game? Is it that unimaginable that around two hundred thousand people want to see this genre back from the dead and treated with respect?

I went in with the rear-admiral constellation package. My hanger currently contains the aforementioned constellation, a cutlass, retaliator and a gladiator.
I'm on the wait list for a scythe and a idris.

People are underestimating the amount of players who WANT to see this genre back. 10 years ago we were playing wing commander on our shitty xt's with vga graphics. We've grown up, got good jobs and then we look around and see theres none of those types of games around anymore.
Then Chris "JUST TAKE MY FUCKING MONEY" Roberts proposes the game that we've been waiting for.
There's no sodding conspiracy here, people WANT this back.
I'd just upgraded from CGA to VGA when the first wing commander came out. (don't get me started on buying ultima 6 earlier that year then realising that regardless of driverhigh= commands, i could never get the 600k base ram free to start the damn thing because it was an amstrad pc with 512k base memory. Lucky I managed to talk the old man into upgrading).
I was jealous of the people with 386's, they could run emm386.sys, convert there extended memory to expanded and then have the peoples faces on the viewscreen and the hand on the joystick ingame moving in relation to what you did with your joystick (usually connected via a 15 pin connection on your soundblaster) in game, those of us with 286's missed out.
My big decision right now is whether I should drop the dollars on a new HOTAS. My control of choice back in the day (IL-2, mechwarrior, etc) was a CH Flightstick Pro with the rudder pedals. It probably still works (it's in my attic), but who the hell still has a 15 pin joystick port on their PC anymore?
I know here on Blues we tend to take the pessimistic view. Hell I've been around on this site 13 goddamn years since back when it was Blues Quake News.
Trust me, there's no conspiracy regarding the funding. It's Joe Public wanting to see this genre back again.

I don't know, I would have no problem spending 5 grand on something I really believe in. I just don't really believe in videogames
Right, there are lots of things I might spend $5k on, but would you spend $5k for an evening on the town?

I managed to spend over $8k in one night, though that was due to being in a foreign country and putting the decimal point in the wrong place when I was converting stuff in my head
It was a good night, just not an 8k night...............

Not too miffed about it (I was one of the backers who were in for a fair bit, currently waiting on my miniture eagle). There was no promise or commitment to provide any future DLC to backers, I just wanted the damn game made.
If it means we get another splat pack, then yeah I don't mind throwing down some more money for DLC. I don't automatically associate "update" with DLC, so again I don't see any broken promises (others view may vary, but lets be honest here, the days of things like the original UT'99 free multiplayer expansion packs are a long way behind us)
The tone of the updates is a very British type humour, so I can see why it would rub some up the wrong way. They've always been like that though since the early days. Nobby is awesome.

News Comments > Star Citizen Hits $19M - $21M Goal Revealed
17. Re: Out of the Blue Sep 17, 2013, 12:19 PsychoMoggieBagpuss
 
Chris has maintained that it would take 20mill to fully fund the game he has designed, which equates to 23mill once all the paypal/kickstarter/ccard fee's are taken away.
They've been very clever with their use of stretch goals, only showing the next one as another completes. Still, if he's listing further stretch goals after the 23mill mark, especially if those goals sound that they've just been thrown together, then I will start getting concerned. Every other goal that they have listed has been a natural progression from the previous ones.

Been playing since the alpha. Very addictive game, I'm really liking it a lot. There's a few niggly things in there which could do with some finetuning (i.e. amount of clicking you'll be doing), but I'm really happy with where the game is so far and looking forward to the rest of it.

Nope I was wrong I do not have the 300i as I thought. Only have the basic ship.
Anyways speaking of sexy ships, take a look at this beast: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/pledge/products/constellation

Price tag is a bit over the top for my taste though

Thats the big one in the youtube I linked below. Have a constellation (big one), freelancer (not so big one), then the Origin 325a fighter.
Chris Roberts has said that the single player part of it is basically wing commander, you fly missions off the carrier (TIGERS CLAW!), etc. Then you muster out and get in the big multiplayer part. Or not. Run your own private server with mods, etc. Up to you.
I cut my teeth on the old origin games (and SSI gold box stuff). I spent a whole day installing wing commander 2 (uncrunching!)then the 6th floppy was fucked so I had to go back to the shop on the Monday to swap the damn thing. WC 1/2 , Privateer 1/2, Freelancer, plus all the ultima shit (though that was Garriot not Roberts).
Now I'm mid 30's and there's really been nothing thats really grabbed my attention gamewise for a long time.
Thats why when the crowdfunding for this started I was on the side of "Chris Roberts, just take my fucking money"

I've still got the blueprints and the claw marks book from the original wing commander. Same with the ultima 6 cloth map and moonstone.

Then I look at my ultima 9 dragons edition and hate myself
