It sounds like the DEV is making true on his threat to abandon production of the game due to "trolling" on metacritic.

(reddit)

quote from the dev taken from rockpapershotgun.com

“Pilots.

There’s quite a picturesque scene on our page at metacritic.com. Most of the comments left by players (there’s no proof that they actually played the game thou) are blankly negative. These people have a direct, vivid and purposeful intention to finish the very existence of IL-2 brand. They want this remarkable and world-renown flight sim franchise to die. I’ve discussed the situation with Loft earlier today. So, if the user opinion shown by metacritic is what the community believes in, then we, as he says, will need to close the project this December. If their attitude prevails, if haters win and dominate over those who love IL-2 Sturmovik then the game is over – it’s out of the shelves, out of hard drives, out of memory.

If you want to shut down the series then just leave the situation as it is now, and let a bunch of trolls and haters finish it.

You want the game to live, to develop and to turn into the best WWII combat flight sim over time? You love it? Then speak it out. Tell you virtual and real friends, tell the new younger pilots, tell it to the group of 30 men who is not on the forum and whose days and nights are devoted to creating IL-2 for you.”

A dev pisses off a few players, censors critiques on their forums. The censored players spam metacritic with bad reviews, Dev threatens to quit production. A week later another early access game is released before it is complete. All paying customers are left without the game they were promised. Continuing the tradition of IL-2.

Can't believe a grownup person wrote that. That is really, really chidishly fucked up.

Hah that's popcorn gold right there.. mhh popcorn...

drama aside it sure looks good.

that price though, ugh

even on a typical steam sale of 25% off that would be more than my wallet could handle for the "deluxe" edition.

Which by the way, is only 2 additional planes

The first episode is more than 3 hours if you are thorough. The city hub is pretty big and there's tons of stuff to interact with and dialogue to listen to.

That said, the game runs really poorly. Like, sub-30 FPS poorly in many cases. Peformance is highly variable and really seems to bog down in certain areas. Even when you turn down all the video settings, you only gain like 10 FPS. This makes me think the game is mostly CPU-dependent, which is a common sign of poor optimization. My CPU is no slouch either (i5 3570k overclocked to 4.4 GHz).

I am a fast reader ;p I had the same performance problems, must be Unity related

From what I understand, their time table is to have the entire game finished by September next year, which probably means more like December. But at least we're not talking multiple years like I feared initially, when they announced they were going episodic..

(On that note, where's Broken Age ep 2? ;P)

The game is most definitely a prologue. At least it is very very pretty at times (the intro alone is exceptional, and that in UNITY?!)

As I understand Book 2 is already in testing, and all 5 books will be until winter of 2015. If the books become more substantial (ie, 4 to 6 hours) this is ok imo.

Ps.: Broken Age Part 2 is still MIA.. no surprise there. Double Fine can't handle schedules and money as is blatantly apparent now. I pretty much gave up waiting on that.

The atmosphere is great, but as usual with this, you are better off waiting until it is done... as it stands, book 1 is a good 3 hours.. and there are various paths and they do have pretty damn big effects (your choices, that is) (but you only get 1 save and you can't switch around to test stuff out)

Backed this way back ;p

Also the German Translation is missing tons of spoken dialog lines (they are silent) and the subtitles and the spoken stuff doesn't match most of the time either. It's a bit rough

In Germany gas furnaces need to be serviced every year (in summer)

Has to do with who is responsible when something goes wrong with one of these things. House owners need to do this, even if they rent the house to other party.
Wow....what a wasted use of money.

Change filter every month - check.

Service every 10 - check.


What? Ehm, I don't think you have anything even remotely resembling the heating furnace I have ,) With service I mean cleaning the soot on the conductive-ignition burner copper element (probably not actually every year), and that's it. Filters every month? I am not burning Diesel in that thing you know... liquid gas is clean enough to do that once a year, with the yearly service. (Which unless otherwise mentioned, actually only includes a exhaust contents test and a check whether it still works right)

Remember, this is a dev that flat out banned people reporting bugs and issues and deleted those posts so that people couldn't see them.

There is a giant topic about this on Steam, where 777 (the devs) are also censoring left and right. Kinda scummy behavior, even if the game seems ok

But .. 90€ for premium and 60€ for standard... in what lala land do these people live?

HS has daily quests for a reason... sigh

HS is pretty shit compared to M:TG though.

Of course it is, MTG has 3000+ cards, HS has 300 or there abouts but it's about the motivation to get people to even play. And if you don't have all the cards vs someone who does, without proper match-making it's nay impossible to win in MTG.

I just think rewards only for mp wins is extremely stupid.

Garruck's revenge is the same deck already in 2014 and 2013... talk about lack of ideas.

Also just a reward for winning matches is retarded. HS has daily quests for a reason... sigh

Currently I do not even understand how the book "Lolita" does not fall under this or any written fantasy. (or even Game of Thrones)

Or any comprehensive history book for that matter.

Written != image.

What about ascii art?

Also I meant the GoT tv show, the sex scene with drogo and khalesi.. well you do realize she was depicting a underage teen in that right? In the book, it was 11 or 12 years afaik.

Either way the only thing obscene is this judgment.

In the book she's 11 or 12, but the show bumped their ages up considerably.
And the actress is not underage.

There are plenty of slippery slope arguments here, which Scalia obnoxiously brushes away with "but those circumstances wouldn't be prosecuted or would just be thrown out by a judge," however this isn't one of them. This is one of them.

I slightly get what legislatures are trying to do here, but it seems really stretching. However, being the politician that stands up for child pornography is a way to get a career ruined, even if this probably shouldn't meet that definition.

Did he actually go to jail for that? Because if yes then wow, Simpsons art style is not far above stick figures, they certainly do not even look HUMAN. So if that is true then there is only 1 way, and that's to ignore the law and always encrypt your folders...

Also.. a big LMAO to asking a JURY what is obscene or not. Yeah, because laws are supposed to be... subjective... ?

Yeah, he pled and served 15 months.

That's just... insane.. I am speechless.

I would have made one where you play newt trying to survive on the colony on LV-426 until the marines show up.

Omg... this so much ;/ Without motion tracker... without flares, without a gun and without crafting skills. But the AI would need fixing... the Aliens would need to sod off longer in that scenario and when they come they just patrol unless you are careless ;p (given there are a lot of Aliens on lv...)

This game has been getting some pretty solid reviews & people seem to really enjoy it. It's just too damn scary for me...LOL! I play to relax not have anxiety.

This'll harden you against anxiety or give you an heart attack... not sure which, but one of both... or maybe both..

I can understand your point for once.. that game is a dang nerve wrecker. Far more so than any other game I ever played

Grimrock is the best game I've played this year. I spent so much time on it over the weekend that I burnt myself out: a late-game puzzle had me stumped for a good thirty minutes before I realized the (extremely obvious, extremely simple) solution. There aren't nearly as many puzzles requiring precise timing and/or movement as in its predecessor, and given the limitations of the engine at work, they REALLY get creative at times with puzzle design.

Oh, thanks Professor. I took this off the list b/c the first one was just too twitchy for me. So I'll check this one out.

Don't believe him then, because Grimrock 2 is definitely even more twitchy, if you don't dance around enemies you will lose, hard. There are even boss fights with timers (ie, spawners that constantly spawn stuff until you kill them) so it fits my definition of "twitchy"

The first time I referred to it here I called it the boiler, which was what we called it growing up in Brooklyn. People acted like I made the word up.

I actually like calling it the furnace, has a nice heavy metal ring to it Though I wonder where the fur is.....
