News Comments > Elite Dangerous Horizons Next Week
33. Re: Elite Dangerous Horizons Next Week Dec 10, 2015, 02:23 InBlack
 
I like Elite:Dangerous. What I didn't like is the grind. I stopped playing when I figured out the only way to actually progress to a better fighting ship, is to sell my pimped Cobra, and buy a freighter. I was like...Wtf? Did they add new combat missions, because there were like 4 or 5 types the last time that I played, they were repetitive as fuck and really earned peanuts...

Im not sure Gsync is worth it. Im thinking of buying a new monitor and everyone Ive asked swears by the 144Hz monitors. Apparently you can't notice the screen tearing and the smoothness and response is almost on the level of the old CRTs.

MS trying to take a page from the Apple playbook.... "you'll fucking take this and you'll like it. we said so"

thing is, the average person, the majority - eventually they will fall in line just like the fucking sheep they are... they dont have the intelligence or the will to dis-OBEY for very long, especially once it stops being fashionable

so get ready for all this because its happening

You gotta use the nice carrot once in a while though. What MS Is doing is mostly using a carrot-painted stick. Thats the difference between Apple and MS. Apple makes you WANT to belong, MS forces you to belong OR ELSE. You see Apple's closed garden is actually pretty nice. MSs garden is anything but closed, although they are trying to turn it into a prison, and not that nice. In fact Im pretty sure those are dead cats in the garbage dump in the corner...

As usual, lots of whiners. Windows 10 is a better OS than the prior versions, so why wouldn't you update?

Thats either a typo, or bullshit. You can't throw engineers at games to build them faster or better. After a while the law of diminishing, or even negative returns kicks in.

This ship took a real long time to get in the water. I read about it first about 2 years ago. It was basically in dry dock, and delayed, but the crew was aboard doing exercises. They made a joke about the skippers name back then too.

Basically, VR headsets are going to tease the shit out of us for eternity and never ACTUALLY come out. That's how it feels, anyway.

Yep, but Im not complaining. It's gonna take a while for this tech to mature anyway. I doubt I could even push the pixels for it properly with my GTX970. By 2017 once all three major competitors in the VR market release their gear, things will be clearer.

It's actually an attempt to draw old players back in via smurfing... which is going to make first play experience (And the entire atrocity of MM) for real newbs a nightmare.

Aside that, hero gating is gone, good.. 5 months to late though!

A friend of mine told me that the game is not even in the top 20 twitch streamed games, it used to be in the top three. Blizzard seriously messed up somewhere. I quit around the time they released that Elf Hunter hero, or shortly afterwards. They had a great chance to wipe the slate clean with their MM and their Hero League ladder reset, but they fucked it up real bad.

Something was off about this game, even though mechanically it was pretty flawless. Blizzard seriously under-estimates their players and doesn't give them enough credit. Limiting group sizes, making it really easy (and relatively painless, there were no permabans) for griefers, and generally majorly fucking up with the matchmaking to allow terrible players into high ranked games, ruined this game.

If the game is good, and the unlocks (characters, upgrades or weapons) are not paid DLC then Im fine with it not being free to play. Im just worried that Blizzard will have a hard time attracting players to a paid pure multiplayer game that is basically a revamped Team Fortress. Then again this is Blizzard we are talking about and they keep proving everyone wrong over and over again with their business models.

Everyone I know who played the game (even my wife who isn't really an FPS gamer) has loved it with the sole criticism that the game is a little too twitchy and needs the pacing dialed back a tiny amount. I think it'll do well.

Sounds like right up my alley. Even though I'm on the decline of that curve, I enjoy TF2 every once in a blue moon, and used to be pretty good in Quake and Doom. (In my student days I roomed with the champion Quake1 player of well, I think my country probably, even though we only had local city championships at the time. He even beat Thresh once or twice, man that dude was a major dick and way overrated, and would never play (if he could avoid it). If you're reading this Thresh, psy-mushroom and Pirgo say hi.

You seem to have missed the point. At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter that Jar Jar annoyed people or that CG looks different the puppets. Fans would have forgiven stuff like that. The problem the prequels suffer from is that there's no one to like. The heroes are basically monks--drab, flat and austere characters. Take away the lightsabers and they couldn't be more boring. We didn't care about them. We cared about Luke's journey. We enjoyed Han's colorful background and personality. We liked Luke, Han and Leia together. There was a warmth and a sincerity there that every relationship in the prequels lacked. The real reason that people feel let down by the prequels has nothing to do with effects or esoteric plot points. It's that the prequels have no heart.

And I couldn't agree more.

This, a million times this. Also don't forget Vader's coolness, his utter ruthlesness (something uncommon in PG13 movies in those days and even today) and his eventual redemption. People were dissapointed that the greatest Jedi who ever lived was turned to the dark side because, pussy, or something...? What? I still don't get it.

Also for those nipticking for plot holes and inconsistencies, the original trilogy is ALSO full of them. I recently rewatched the three films, and they are full of ridiculous crap. But its charming instead of offensive because the dialogue is so fun, and the characters so endearing that in the end you don't care.

75-80 years ago it started with Germany. In this century, it will probably start in France. (Unless the US beats them to it)
