Also, wait are you implying that i work for CIG? haahhahaha/lmao/ROFL i fucking wish. Now take off that Tin foil hat and come back to reality buddy.

*laughs off in the distant*

If you're truly only posting on SC threads maybe you do, it's not the first time we've had paid posters here. Either that or you've spent a lot of money on virtual ships

The "Windows8 sux" brigade will now offer this extraordinary information in numerous web forums for at least an year.

Well a lot of us knew that Windows 8 hit its "end of life" immediately after launch.

The share button sucks until I can share to sensible video services like Youtube. I tweeted to one of the VPs at Sony about it and he replied with "oh you can just put your video on a USB drive" as if we had been transported back in time 7 years. Sony was first to the whole share thing on the consoles and they're letting Microsoft beat them in features.

Does the Xbox allow share to Youporn? It seems like a natural tie in with the Kinnect.

I thought we've already debunked that this is pay to win.

Not at all.

Ok, it's the number two request. They'll drop it. It's 100 dollar paperweight no one wants or wants to make games for. That won't make the NSA too happy but there's already several million suckers that they can spy on with it.

Maybe Microsoft is getting money from Kinect collected data, so who really knows if they'll drop it. Or if the NSA would let them.

Not that I was going to get this for the PC, but Uplay means its dead on arrival. After the uplay rootkit fiasco of HOMM6, never again.

GOG is my preferred choice.

Microsoft cares about those under 9 inches, those over not so much

This doesn't make it free to consumers though, just a way to get PC manufacturers to stop offering Windows 7 instead.

Here's my concerns for this game in particular (and I'm sure a lot of you won't agree)
1) Selling ships for cash i.e. pay to win

They all will be available in game for ingame money.

Julio wrote on Apr 1, 2014, 20:59:
2) The concept of "insurance" in a game
4) Having both a single player and an MMO game

What's wrong with that?

Julio wrote on Apr 1, 2014, 20:59:
5) Constant emails to sell more virtual things and raise more real money. Doesn't give a good impression.

Can you show me screen with all those emails?


This will probably spur a 'pay-to-win' vs not discussion but here goes. The people paying for a $1200 ship will start out with a huge advantage relative to the rest of the player base. Sure if someone who puts in the minimum investment grinds for years and years they may work their way up to that $1200 ship. In the meantime, they're cannon fodder for the $1200 guys. I guess someone has to be there for target practice.

Having to buy "insurance" as part of a game to me is too microtransaction focused for me. It's a game, not real life.

Having a single player and MMO all in one means it's quite unlikely that either will turn out to be a good game. Tradeoffs will have to be made, and one of them will suffer. Given the MMO will drive future revenue via microtransactions it will get more support than the single player game in development.

I don't keep all the emails I get on this game, I delete them after skimming. However, I've seen more than 20, and probably a lot more than that related to selling me virtual crap. "Ship X not available to buy past this date"; "Last chance to buy Ship Y" etc is the main focus of them. Subscribe to the site and you'll get plenty.

If you guys hate games so much why keep coming to a gaming news site and posting hate over and over and over again

I'm pretty sure most of us don't hate games. This game is pretty polarizing and either people love the concept or hate it.

Here's my concerns for this game in particular (and I'm sure a lot of you won't agree)
1) Selling ships for cash i.e. pay to win
2) The concept of "insurance" in a game
3) Over promising, and likely underdelivering
4) Having both a single player and an MMO game
5) Constant emails to sell more virtual things and raise more real money. Doesn't give a good impression.

I definitely like the space sim genre of games. However, pay-to-win MMOs are not my style of game. I think we've been through the pay-to-win vs not pay-to-win argument enough (to me it's paying to win, to those dropping money for virtual ships it's not).

I'm fine with some of you dropping thousands of dollars on this - but I hope this is not the direction that gaming in general is taking.

I'm not a microtransaction gamer, having some sort of taxi style meter down the road that charges as I play (which is not in this game yet that I know of) takes the fun out of games.

Why just Apple? Yes, I recall the original case, but it seems to me that collusion is still the order of the day. How else do you explain digital books being only slightly less - or even more in some cases - than their printed counterparts? Just another reason why I won't go in on the ebook thing. At least I can resell my books.

It's definitely not only Apple. I'm happy with ebooks, but the price is way too high, given all the costs that are no longer needed in an ebook world.

April Fools! We are actually selling out to Myspace!

We'll have to wait and see if the ships they're selling come with ads painted on the sides. I doubt anyone's looking to buy them out yet, but the day may come.

I'd also like to see them include the families of senior level executives at Apple in the lawsuit. Given the government gave them a free pass.

I just tried the demo and it gave me motion sickness. Something about the movement isn't quite right to me.

I'm in the same spot, had to pass on it when it was on sale at GOG earlier this year for that reason.

He's now a 21 year old billionaire. (well, not quite, but likely very, very close.) I can't hate him too much for that.

I'd do the same thing for that much money. Maybe even buy Blues just to piss you all off.

Probably what Facebook has planned next to kill off
Don't do it Blue, don't take the $2 billion
