Really looking forward to this one. Blizzard really has been impressing me for a while - they found their footing again with WoW, Diablo 3 isn't perfect but is much improved, and Overwatch had a great presentation (other than the isolated dev yammering about female character outfits.)

Diablo3 is a travesty. WoW is...Im not gonna even go there. The only thing that Blizzard has produced of any quality in the last ten years or so is Starcraft2 and Hearthstone. Ill reserve judgement on Overwatch but it appears to be a reskin of TF2, which might not be a bad thing at all but do we really need another team based shooter?

How long did it take to develop:
GTA V, World Of Warcraft, Destiny, The Witcher 3, Guild Wars 2, Call of Duty games and so on?
Most AAA games take 4-5 years to make. Most games suffer release delays. Many crowdfunded projects and games have suffered delays and still did well when released. Divinity Original Sin. Wasteland 2 and so on.
In fact the kickstarter projects with a higher chance of success usually come from veteran developers. In fact most projects fail.

As you point out. SC has the funds. Has the talent. It continues to show progress on the project. The fact that they are financially stable is precisely why they have a better chance of success than many other projects.

*checks Comet's post history*

Kind of hard to take you seriously when every single one of your posts has been defending Starcitizen. There is a word for that you know?

Loving the thinly veiled hate speech. Im not saying you guys are wrong, Im just saying youre partly right. Islam is not to blame. Religion is to blame. Period. In fact, I would like to add Christianity to the list of religions that need to go. In fact I would like to add all the religions to that list. Any religion that claims it is peaceful is full of shit. Why? Because at one time or another someone has used religion as an excuse to kill. Yeah, even Buddhists. Don't believe me? Go read a history book on Sri Lanka.

Bullcompleteapoligist shit.

This is the 21st century, not some medieval town with people whose average lifespan is 30 and IQ less.

You, InBlack, are part of the problem with imbecilic statements like that. Typical liberal bullshit that I can't fucking stand.

This was probably my most extreme statement on the subject of religion ever and this guy calls it liberal. I didnt even disagree with him. Sad. I wonder if he can even recognize the irony...

Who gives a shit what they are called? If they help PC gaming gain more penetration (heh) then I am all for them whatver you call them. If not, oh well, moving along...

Well said. Steam changed PC gaming in a big way. Steam OS (which is what these will be running I guess) has the potential to be even more relevant, especially with the shit Microshaft is rumoured to be pulling.

what are they rumoured to be pulling? making windows 10 not work with all x86 programs coded in the last 30 years? might wanna do some digging before repeating nonsense. no offense, but Gabe calling BS on MS having a kind of monopoly is pretty ironic. Let alone the fact that MS MADE both Steam, and GabeN in particular (MS millionaire baby!)

but the real joke is how anyone could ever consider steam machines to be anything close to a PC. hmm, a small form-factor walled-garden mid-low component-level console. oh wait, it comes in 5 different flavors! it's totally a PC!

Again total ignorance. SteamOS is just another Linux build. Any game that will work with SteamOS will work on any version of Linux. Get your facts straight. Next you will be telling me that Linux machines are not PCs.

Yeah, they forced every Counter-Strike player into Steam and thus got a headstart on the digital distribution front and kept that a monopoly for now. This is not very different to what MS does with Windows.

Steam OS (which is what these will be running I guess) has the potential to be even more relevant, especially with the shit Microshaft is rumoured to be pulling.

Windows 10 is probably something like an optimized Windows 7 and everybody who actually works on a PC, except for some Mac artists, will continue to use it, because you just can't work on a tablet. Also I don't see why people like Valve more than MS. Steam is already a closed App Store for games that gets % for every game sold. If SteamOS would succeed, the whole free Windows world would succumb to another Apple clone!

Wow. Total ignorance. Apple clone? Seriously? You do know that SteamOS is basically a Linux build right? If you knew anything about how Linux works you would not make completely invalid comparisons. Or maybe you do know and are trying to obfuscate the issue at hand. Im not saying it will work, it all depends on the game developers and if they are willing to build games for it, but it's a step in the right direction. Why would anyone have a problem with someone trying to develop an alternative to Windows?It's not about liking Valve over MS, its about what direction MS has been taking with its operating systems and them trying to create their own walled garden Apple style.

I wish them luck but they would have been better off making L4D3.

Loved both L4Ds, but you don't feel the game was pretty much played out? What does it need? New maps & weapons? Better graphics?

I played the hell out of L4D, especially versus. I thought L4D2 improved the game in almost every way, but it wasn't enough to encourage me to put in the hours. I think it did get played out, and a L4D3 on PC probably wouldn't be a buy unless I cave to peer pressure.

That said, a release of L4D neeeeeeds to go to XB1 and PS4...I think it plays great as a console game but the 360 release ran at sub 20 FPS. 1080P and a solid FPS on the new consoles will sell a lot of copies.

You want to play a FPS on a console? Whats wrong with you man?

That being said, the people who did back it seem pretty happy for the most part. I'm mainly curious more than anything else, I hope it turns out well for people. When there is an official "1.0" type milestone for the aggregate product I will probably check it out.

From what Ive seen, most of the people who dug deep into their pockets for this claim that they are getting as much enjoyment from the development of Starcitizen itself as from any game, they dont even care that it might go south at some point. Madness.

I gotta give it to Chris Roberts, either the guy is lucky as fuck or there is some serious genius going on inside his head...

I wonder if there will be a single person that will buy this game when it releases. It seems like every single person on the planet and their dog has already backed it.

I've just decided to wait until they do a Elite Dangerous type of release. Which is to say, here is a strong backbone of a game, come along for the ride.

BTW SpectralMeat, my TrackIR5 is getting here next week. Some of your previous posts helped me decide I have to have one. Picking up Elite was my tipping point to finally buy.

You will love it. Although the implementation in Elite isnt the greatest TBH it is functional and will improve your SA byleaps and bounds.

I liked This is the End, but The Interview was a stinker. Glad I only spent the $6 on it for the VOD, instead of going to a theater for the disappointment.

This is the End was really awesome, and I agree that the Interview cant really compare, but as far as buddy buddy comedies go I thought it was pretty decent. I do have a thing for Seth Rogen films, people are always going on about how low brow these movies are and I really dont get that. The jokes are crude and ridiculous but they spare no one (including and perhaps especially themselves) and it takes intelligence to 'get' that.

I enjoyed the hell out of A:CM. More than got my moneys worth. Not sure what made that game so cool to hate outside of the E3 video, but it was a solid title with good gameplay and fun multiplayer.

To each his own I suppose

Wow really? Have you played any of the AvP games?

When I first heard about this, I thought well maybe they'll do better this time. And then I saw that it was free-to-play and they lost me.

AFAIK Brink was not F2P. It still ended up sucking balls. At least this way, anyone can try it and see for themselves.
