I'm starting to get a rather uneasy feeling about this game. They're promising the stars and there's the reputation of more than just Star Citizen at stake. This is a big deal for crowd funding (ugh, now I'm using that phrase) and it could all end in tears.

Thankfully, I know nothing and my predictions frequently suck, so it'll probably all be OK.

Hey, I love space sims as much as the next guy but Roberts has given me a real snakeoil salesman vibe that's only gotten worse. I hope I'm dead wrong on this because I'll happily buy it after launch if that's the case but there's no chaance in hell I'm giving him dime one until we see exactly what's what all around.

And yeah, if it's not as advertised all around this could be just another massive blow to crowd funding games.

Exactly my thoughts... At this point I'm glad I haven't spent one cent on this project. To me it seems it has grown from overweight to obese, and that's a bad sign. Once you deliver what's promised I'll gladly give you my money Mr. Roberts, but it's your turn first.

Unreal 4? This is all about Unreal ENGINE 4 and has nothing to do with a game. That said, the UE 4 demo is old news, it was uploaded in March 2013.

PC gaming FTW! - Fuck you 180 and PS4!

yeah, and there will never be a console port of this because if you try to load a world that is 35 times as big as The Witcher 2 a console would explode.

But let the console kids play their beloved GTA V- that thing looks so 2002 LOL.

Yes, GTA V looks no better than Morrowind, or GTA III for that matter... Rolleyes

BTW, 35 times as big as The Witcher 2 is about on par with Skyrim/Oblivion/Fallout 3, and less than half the size of GTA V. Total area in Witcher 2 was a little less than 1.5 square kilometers, spread across several separate maps. But hey, anything to make it sound bigger, I guess, lol.

Good points. From what I've seen, GTA V is just big but it doesn't look good (considering the hardware limitations of current gen. consoles it look amazing though). So, yes, take a heavily modded Morrowind and compare the two.

35 times the size of Witcher 2 plus the increased level of detail and the console explodes. Fixed.

News Comments > Diablo III Auction Houses Shutting Down Next Year

Very smart move by Blizzard, implementing some sort of secure point to point trade system is the way to go with ARPGs.

Blizzard is smart when it comes to finding ways to create tons of cash. And that's where Blizzard's smartness ends. Attempting to reverse the damage done a year after the D III release isn't smart, instead it is "damage management" such as:

trying to win back disgruntled, lost customers
admitting that the AH is a failure (took them a year, so smart)
pretending they care about and listen to their customers
admitting that the AH can be removed and replaced by something else
giving the false impression of being smart
...


Here's how I see it:
It is a wise decision by other developers/publishers NOT to screw (up) their games/gamers by adding auction houses in the 1st place.

My recommendation to Blizzard: Do things as you did with Diablo I, or just go away and die. Thanks.

Played all of them back in the days and had a blast. Old school, challenging hardcore RPGs. VI and VII were way harder than VIII. My recommendation: Get the bundle and take a year off from work

So, they recommend an AMD six-core CPU. AFAIK only the highest end intel CPUs have six cores

I want this game, I really do, but somehow I have a bad feeling about it. But this can't go wrong, can it? Anyway, waiting to spend my money on release day.

The more stretch goals involved (due to over-funding) the more things can go wrong. Quite a few over-funded projects on KS have collapsed. And Star Citizen is a great example of "waaaaaay over-funded". It's wise to spend the money on release day. Just my 5c.

The first and most important step to limit their power is to cut off their money supply. That can only be done by going back to a commodity-backed currency.

Unfortunately, this can't be achieved by voting, it requires a revolution (which isn't going to happen because, as long as beer, burgers and TVs are cheap people couldn't care less...)

Um, no. Blizzard managed to "fool" millions just once - to accomplish their goal (which is sitting on a mountain of cash). They will gladly accept all the shame and cash you throw at them in the first place. They don't have to fool you twice. And in five to ten years, when they release their next Diablo, all the shame will be long forgotten and people will again be ready to throw cash (and shame) in Blizzards direction.

Sounds to me like you're gonna have to learn how to code.

Even though this would be the best choice I don't think it's necessary. Europe's (e.g.) got talent and in the PRISM/UPSA era the motivation to dump US internet giants has grown significantly. I frequent German IT forums and pretty much everybody there hates the US govt./NSA/PRISM etc.

Non-American browser alternatives will pop up on the web sooner or later.

"US businesses stand to lose up to $35B as a result of PRISM."

That's a presumed revenue loss of 20 percent due to PRISM.

In my view only a complete collapse of all American cloud services would have been proper punishment for the existence of PRISM.

I agree. Still, I became immersed enough to make LOG 2 a "must-have" title. And the screenshots look great already. Glad to know, they're adding some depth to the combat system.
