FPS gameplay has always been in the core design.
No it hasn't you ditzy twat, there's ZERO mention of it in the Kickstarter. It's just another of Robert's feature-creep additions so he doesn't have to get on with releasing the actual game.

This thing is going to tank hard. Not only did he choose totally the wrong engine for a fucking space game, but the online infrastructure he's going to need will be insane - except he's putting all the money into building endless fucking ships so he can keep the pyramid scheme running.

Make no mistake - I hope that, in the end, this fuck is held accountable. Because the failure of this boondoggle will destroy crowdfunding.

This fucking game is in feature-creep hell. Roberts has no idea what the fuck he's doing.

Christ, I loathe having to explain elementary business to morons, but here goes.

They have a business class at your elementary school?
Yes, it's very prestigious. It's the Silicon Valley version of those pageants for 4 year olds which seems so popular in redneck land.

Seriously though, you win the "angry guy on internet" award for this thread. In such a short time in this thread you've proven yourself to be a fuckwit of legendary proportions, and considering some of your competition in the last year on BN <3, that's really saying something. kudos.
Tragic. I'm not popular with a couple of nerdboy virgins on the internet. Boo hoo. I'll write out my will immediately.

Every sentence you write is dumber than the last. Every time I come up with a great comeback, I read your next line, have a mild brain aneurysm, and forget what i'm doing.

I think your post just gave me cancer, is what i'm trying to say.
No, I suspect trying to think gives you cancer. You have all the hallmarks of a fanboy with a terrifying Cheetos habit and a non-existent social circle. What do you do for an encore? Break out into hives at the thought of talking to a girl?

Seriously, stop being an ass. This influx of cash can only help create a better product, unless FB does something really stupid. So far there is no indication they will.
Christ, I loathe having to explain elementary business to morons, but here goes.

$2 billion was the acquisition price, which goes nowhere except straight into Luckey's pocket. Oculus is now a Facebook company which means Facebook finances it.

Now. What do you think Facebook got for its $2 billion? Seriously try thinking for once.

The answer is patents. There's no way anyone spends $2 billion hoping to make a profit cranking out goofy looking VR helmets from a bunch of guys in a garage. Zuckerberg thinks he now owns VR and can sue anyone else. Right now in Facebook's fuckery department, there's a bunch of shitheads cranking out VR patents by the dozens if not hundreds. Patents on VR advertising. Patents on VR search. VR mediated gesture recognition. VR interfaces. The works.

Now, when you're unable to get a VR experience which hasn't been infested by Facebook, you'll be fucking complaining. The fact that some people can see a little further than you is really your own problem.

Luckey created this because he's excited about the tech.
Luckey's an asshole who exploited the gullible on Kickstarter. Nothing more.

Zuck bought this because he has $100B he doesn't know what to do with, and he's also a fan of the tech. End of story.
No, he has 36B and he spent 2 billion nailing down (he thinks) VR. I pointed out his reasons earlier, but you go right on believing he's some kind of techno-philanthropist. I presume you also believe in the Easter Bunny and Santa Claus.

Without this money, this product would not be nearly as far along.
Who the fuck cares. I'll take Valve's product. At least that wasn't financed by fucking people over and jumping in bed with the cancer of the internet.

I've been itching for a fun Space-based game to enjoy but I'm not in the market to give Gearbox any kind of money so I might look more in to Elite Dangerous and gift myself a joystick for my Birthday on Tuesday.
Yeah let's not reward a company when they do something right.
It crashes randomly all over the fucking place. They didn't do anything right - Gearbox is still fucking Gearbox.

And that is why you need to read to the end. I thought you were going to say patent lawsuits. Obviously someone is sitting on a bunch of VR patents.
You think Zuckerberg paid 2 billion dollars for something that didn't involve Luckey filing a bunch of patents?

Five bucks says the fucking asshole has a filing with the patent office right now which claims he 'created VR'.

Uh, what did Palmer Luckey ever do? He has literally no track record. All he's ever done is keep a relatively low profile and work on Oculus Rift as far as I can recall.

Took Kickstarter money and made 2 billion dollars out of it, then drove off into the sunset in a Ferrari yelling "Thanks for the free money, suckers!"

It's shit like this which is why nobody should EVER back Kickstarter hardware. Those original Kickstarters should have been investment partners. And frankly, I've come to think the entire Kickstarter model is exploitative. I hope it dies in a ditch real soon now.

Basically Luckey completely betrayed his backers by selling out to Facebook. If he'd confessed he was intending to do this, he would've gotten zip.

Thank fuck. I've been hoping someone would bring out something to smack down that piece of shit Palmer Luckey and this sounds like it could be the go.

I'd also like to see Mark Zuckerburg write down his 2 billion dollar investment in Oculus as a tax loss - because let's face it, if there's anyone who didn't deserve to make a dime out of the future of VR, it's those two fucking assholes.

Fuck, is this no-talent bozo STILL riding John Carmack's coat-tails?

Give it up John. Doom was good because of Carmack's engine. Quake was good because of Carmack's engine. You're a fucking level designer for fuck's sake.

This should be called "John Romero plays DOOM, bores onlookers."

3. Re: Alien: Isolation Sells > 1M Jan 21, 2015, 14:01 Wraith
 
They're fooling themselves. Alien Isolation is another missed opportunity. The game itself has great atmosphere but appalling game-play. Lazy AI and no attempt to reconcile the difference between Alien capabilites and the player's. Minimal to no opportunities to strategise. The list goes on and on.

They need an actual game designer.

I played the beta. The free-roaming stuff is kind of cool but the racing was fucking awful. Especially those races which require you to bring down another car.

Not only was the rubber-banding hideous, the way the AI blatantly cheats and the really poor design choices (In one race, I literally had to spend 2 minutes CATCHING UP to the AI which had been given a colossal head start. 2 minutes of utter boredom) really undermine the technical achievement of the game.

Nice cruising simulator. Really poor game. I told them so in the beta and they deleted my comments in the forums. They wanted players to find bugs, not express opinions on the gameplay.

A shame. If they'd listened they would've had a much better game.

Yeah, the thing is, we banned semi-automatics and cut our gun massacres to zero. You guys need guns to feel like men and you're still killing your kids.

We're ahead of you mate. By decades.

wow, this was just completely ignorant filth.. and to think he starts his "article" by claiming not to be a troll..

why the hell is anyone of the idea that they know how long this game will or even SHOULD take to create? why are you comparing it to Elite? Elite may have been made on 1/10th the budget but it's also only 1/10th OF THE GAME star citizen is shaping up to become.

"the harsh reality" is that the internet can and will continue to make shit up so they can stand on a stool for 15 seconds and sound sensational and hope to look important and informed.
You're exactly the kind of Roberts fan-boy he was talking about. You're part of the fucking problem.

Star Citizen will never even reach parity with Elite:Dangerous - the former is put together by an EA auteur who's used to wads of cash, the latter is a product of one of the guys who invented the fucking genre.

Star Citizen is a space game using a first-person engine - one of the most brain-dead incompetent decisions in the history of gaming.

Elite:Dangerous uses a custom engine written by a guy and a team who have decades of experience in this genre and pretty much know what they're doing.

Star Citizen is a late, vapourware product which is nothing more than a bunch of promises.

Elite:Dangerous is a clearly in-progress product which clearly has an end-date.

Get used to the "LOADING" screen on Star Citizen. Roberts won't even complete a tenth of what he's promising, but you're going to be seeing that screen for a fuck of a long time.

He's an incompetent fucking ass-clown.

Polygon's obsession with playing social justice warrior continues. Disabling comments on that story is the most fundamentally honest thing they've done all year. Their comments section has become a worthless echo-chamber filled with oh so concerned psuedo-feminist panderers. Any comment which doesn't pander to their pretensions is instantly deleted.

Feminism sees gaming nerds as an easy target for this kind of guilt trippery - because gaming nerds are poorly socialised, desperate to get laid and consequently will fall for this crap.

Trust me, little nerds, you fuck far more women by being an asshole than you do by pandering to them and putting up with their bullshit.
