Some people are never satisfied.

Want gold? Make some friends, play tournaments and you win gold.

...and get this...they're FUN!

Have fun and win in game currency. Who would've thought!!?!?!?!

Jump to conclusions much?

Yup, swallow up that propaganda... Gangs in Mexico less than 100 miles from our border are cutting people's heads off on a weekly basis, but you see one video in mainstream corporate media of one incident happening 10,000 miles away (that has never been proven authentic, btw, if they're trying to shock you then why didn't they show the actual beheading?) and suddenly you want to go to war in that god-forsaken desert, AGAIN? Hook, line, sinker.

/off-topic



Thanks for reaffirming my comment by the way.

War abolition?

While being a pacifist is admirable, I believe reality trumps idealism every time.

You can't play nice with people who cut peoples heads off. They only know violence, and then you have the people who simply want to watch the world burn.

I love this stuff, but you need to invest so much time to be competitive. It took me dozens of sorties and hours flying in wwiio to just be able to see who's about to shoot me down. Couldn't tell you how many times the screen just went black. The guys that play these sims at the highest level are pretty much untouchable.

I just don't have the time to invest in this stuff anymore. Maybe in 20+ years when I retire.

Ive got one problem so far. If you make an alliance with someone you have to watch their move every turn. Combine that with a huge map and a lot of AI players and turns can take many minutes. I know I can just forget the alliances, but sometimes you need those alliances to buy time against an opponent.

I forgot about Tribes. OK. Brings back memories about first learning skiing. I thought I was a genius when I first discovered it.

I didn't get quite the same level of satisfaction from Tribes, but it was still revolutionary.

Funny how some new games are touting MASSIVE 16v16 games when 32v32(and a few 64v64 servers) was pretty common when a lot of people were still on dialup.

Yea...it was laggy at times, but it was still chaotic fun.

I don't think anything will ever compare to QWCTF/ThreewaveCTF when it first came out.

Insane-o offhand grappling hooks and chasing down people carrying keys was absolutely the best time I ever had in gaming.

Nobody had ever experienced anything like that.

I think it's impossible to get back there simply because it was all new.

This wasn't even on my radar, but after watching videos and reading comments I'm giving it a shot. I really need something to satisfy me since X Rebirth is such a letdown for now.

I need something new to run and look nice on my GTX 780.

Downloading now. Fingers crossed.

There's an awesome MMO in this genre for sure. Make a near continent sized map with 3 teams separated by a large no mans land where the hardcore pvp/scavenging goes on. Force people to team up at the beginning to develop a community. One life per "campaign". They can have multiple ones going. Reset after a certain faction overpowers the others. Rinse repeat. No fast travel other than vehicles you fix/mod and scavenge fuel for. Crafting possibilities are endless.

Need to combine that with a build-able/destructible environment. Build secure towns/ outposts etc.

Free to play. Pay 50 cents to respawn with same character etc or whatever

I thought the delay was because they were moving it over to the new engine.

If that doesn't scream of "You can polish a turd" I don't know what will.

My anticipation for this dropped close to zero a year ago. Now it's flatlined.

Since I'm so absolutely slammed with disappointment I'll try to be positive.

It really looks pretty and the exterior is massively detailed.

...but why would I bother trying to get close to anything to admire it when the game runs at a fucking slideshow under 15fps on a decent rig equiped with a gtx780?

No.

No, you can't look(left/right at least) around your fucking cockpit like almost every other fucking space sim in history.

Fucking devs are fucking criminals. I haven't been angry at buying a game in years. I actually came here to vent.

Do not buy this piece of shit until there's a complete overhaul.

UI sucks
flying sucks
in game map is useless

first person mode is laughable-dated models, horrible meshing, absolutely ugly female faces. My freighter pilot had the body of a "healthy" 18 year old with the face of a geriatric.

Is this a fucking space flight sim or is it a minigame of "search the red crates in the space station"?

I had a cop following me around bumping into me for like 3 minutes. He finally said something along the line of illegal scanning reported. I was just flying up to the "!" icons looking at shit because the game told me it reveals deals and shit.

Oh boy.

I could get over all that if it wasn't a fucking slideshow. I don't think I spend more than 10-15 minutes at a time in the game before I get sick of it and exit looking on forums for tweaks.

I've spent like 4 hours dicking around for maybe 3 frames.

I'ts not on my end.

What a turd.

Thankfully anyone with steam can download and try the game for free tonight, so this whole argument is moot.

Took a quick glance at the steam forums.

Looks like a clusterfuck.

I think this is focusing the wrong way. I think Mr. Musk is a good person for doing the research and putting everything out there for anyone to run with, but it doesn't seem practical.

Aircraft unsustainable? The sky is the only place to go with the population growth.

My opinion is there should be more focus on technology based on biology. After all, it's had billions of years to evolve. I think carbon fiber is just the beginning. Lighter, stronger materials.

I think we're just now coming out of the dark ages. I can't wait to see what comes next.

Didn't read the story, but the title reminded me of my first experience with EverQuest compared to Wow etc.

I remember the first time I made the journey from Qeynos to Freeport. That was one of those gaming experiences I'll never forget. Fast forward a couple years and I remember losing a corpse in Plane of Fear for over a week. I was freaking out. Heh. Good times.

Aren't they developing some type of PC/console hybrid for the living room?

Wouldn't it make sense for them to save HL3 to help market their new system?

EDIT: Guess I'd see someone mentioned that if I read past the first page

...and while liberals/conservative bicker and point fingers, ALL of the politicians laugh on the way to the bank.

Big business owns the left and the right.
