I played Tie Fighter with a Gravis Gamepad back in the day.

"He's a witch! Burn him!"

The 360 pad is the most commonly used gaming peripheral on the PC. I wouldn't be surprised if they're using it just to show gamers they don't need a HOTAS setup to enjoy the game. They've promised proper joystick support (among the many other promises) so until they show otherwise it isn't a problem in my eyes. Though if the DFM comes out with only 360 pad support I'll understand the interweb meltdown that occurs.

There's a difference between trolling and not putting up an effort to reinforce common sense. If the guy is blind to anything but three games, what's the point in saying anything?

Skyrim... there.. that looked better than the DFM.

He used Crysis and Witcher 2 as previous benchmarks because they were pure PC games designed to use the latest and greatest of rendering technologies available at the time of release. Star Citizen is doing that again with current hardware. Skyrim indeed looks great, especially when modded. But it is also held back by consoles using the equivalent of decade old PC tech, and built on an engine that is (in graphics terms) far inferior to Cryengine 3. There, common sense.

It's even funnier that you agree with him.
A half-finished DFM has better graphics than all other games released since Crisis/Withcer 2? If you need an explanation as to why his comment is ridiculous you've reached a level of fanboism that's beyond any possible rational explanation.

Also I don't hate the game, I've helped fund it... but I do have eyes and a rational process of thought.

I'm sure in your mind you're sounding like Jack Nicholson saying "you can't handle the truth!", but in reality you're just telling people they're wrong and doing nothing whatsoever to back up your opinion beyond "lol". I hardly qualify as a fanboy for this game as the only time I read about it is here, but even so a fanboy is better than a troll.

The graphics in this demo were probably the best I've seen since Crysis or Witcher 2.

REALLY?...rofl

Why is that funny? I agree with him. Like those two games it is a rare example of a purely PC game designed to push hardware. If you guys hate this game so much then ignore it.

Despite the negativity in this forum, and the poor preparation for this presentation, I thought it looked good. They have the game engine, environment, and flight modeling in place along with rudimentary combat. It's obviously pre-alpha, but the skeleton is there.

I have to agree. Elite is obviously farther ahead, but at the same time they've got a smaller focus with a lower (not bad mind you) graphics level. RSI is clearly making progress and visually it looks great. I look forward to playing both this and Elite.

The whole helmet thing is a non-issue. Add a quick respawn option on death to appear back in the cockpit ready to go. Fixed.

Ok, after all the NSA revelations I didn't think I could be surprised anymore. It was just one more mess added to the pile.

I still did a double take reading that. Wtf. Just....wtf guys.

Did none of them see all the jokes made regarding their focus on TV? It ranks up there with sweaty Balmer and crab belly massive damage.

Eeeeeeeeeeeee! Beam

I put 80 hours into the first version. 80! Normally I lose interest after 40.

I guess I just like watching ships burn. Literally. It's my favourite tactic. Fire bomb + rockmen = mwahahahaha

Noone, barring a dark corner of the internet where I dare not venture, want anything to do with a group using vomit as a tactic. So if you're trying to keep people away from the Bus mission accomplished. If you're trying to win support you might as well fling poo while you're at it, you aren't getting anywhere.

Does anyone think that VR as it is now will be for anyone more than enthusiasts?

Zuckerberg apparently. But I agree with the sentiment, it won't go far past gaming and the occasional non-game niche use. I only wanted it for gaming so that's fine by me.

The market has spoken. And if Microsoft had actually listened when they were developing 8 they would have known that. Oh well giants need a good slap upside the noggin from time to time.

Be realistic, we've also been hearing about it with regards to 3D since the 50's too. And it comes back every 10 years, doesn't catch on, and dies a slow death.

You've been hearing about 3D because it's used to increase ticket sales. And it dies because the tech still sucks. The various methods used so far all have drawbacks that outweigh the gain.

No matter what anyone said VR wasn't even market viable until just recently due to either quality or cost issues.

VR doesn't use the faked 3D method that causes people problems.

I heard almost word-for-word that same sentence back in 1996 when I started working in IT. It didn't hold true then either, it's not true now. The biggest problem with VR headsets are the novelty effect and motion sickness.

It wasn't possible to hold true back then because the technology flat out sucked. The first flying machines were terrible too but we stuck with it (no I am not comparing the usefulness of the two). Motion sickness is largely a tech issue being resolved right now. Niche is probably an accurate assessment but novelty is opinion. Everyone who has tried it has been utterly floored by it. Not in a "this is kinda fun" wiimote way but a "holy fucking shit this is awesome" way.

Why isnt this used by the military if its so damn dangerous and potentially life threatening? Wouldnt this be like 100 times cheaper than bullets or like 1000 times cheaper than missles??

The military wants a weapon with a high guarantee to kill. The frequency of it's lethality has no bearing on the case when it's used in the way it was here. Despite their potential to inflict harm the military don't use fireworks as weapons either, yet using those like a dumbass will land you in jail too.

Choppa's never fly in bad weather? I'd have to think that is more distracting than a small glare.

There have been pilots who actually have physical damage in their eyes from laser wielding jackasses. As mentioned earlier when it hits the glass it can block out the entire view. Considering they are targetting flying masses of metal, fuel and people that will do large damage if crashed these people deserve the book thrown at them. Especially habitual criminals like this guy.
