I doubt we would even have PC gaming today if it weren't for Sierra.

I don't think I'm that nostalgic for a 16bit game, Elite Dangerous is the right kind of remastering of a classic. This one plays it too close to just an HD version of the original.

I guess if they price it accordingly then maybe.

They are also bringing classic mode back, which is awesome I have to say. Its just like BF2, with no Regen, but with normal weapon damages (unlike hardcore) and no 3D Hud triangles (doritos).

Source?

I saw it on Reddit directing to a post from a DICE dev on Battlelog. I wasn't sure what "classic mode" was though, thanks for the info.

When kids can prove they have a basic level of education to read, write and do basic math then they should be allowed to have access to things like the internet and technology in the classroom, as a tool not a babysitter.

I'll probably end up being a free game with video card from AMD, maybe they can pick up some table scraps by doing that.

Did they not have that video up when people bought it, five seconds of watching would have shown you what a crappy mobile version the game it was.

How are they catching these laser strike retards? Is it the big fat reward or are they somehow digging through a mountain of data to see who purchased lasers in an area?

Oh, it's free to play fail. I suppose they are after that WoT money, good luck to them on that.

For some reason this seems to look really odd not having infantry on the maps yet in WoT it seems to work. Maybe it's the modern combat setting.

You can't go from Alpha to finished game in less than two months, people who enjoyed the game should be glad that take 2 isn't just shoving what they have out the door.

Personally I think they need to work on the design some more, there's a really good game lurking in there somewhere but I think it needs more time to distill it down.

a computer that takes 7 minutes to boot up must to ancient, maybe they need to upgrade them.

Not even an 8086 takes 7 minutes to boot up, from floppy yet.

I don't think you can judge whats going on behind the scenes in production from just a few press blurbs. We'll have to wait and see what happens. Chris Roberts has an impressive track record of delivering some awesome games back in the day.

If he doesn't deliver with SC, his career in the gaming industry will be over for good. He will lose respect and all of his achievements will become worthless. There will be no recovery from failure since he took $50mil directly from the pockets of gamers. If that's not enough motivation for him NOT to fail then he'll deserve the brutal end to his career that he will get.

He would make a great used car salesman, so he can always fall back on that.

I don't think he'll ever be without money as long as rendered images of space ships sell as well as they seem to.

Hello Star Citizen, are you not entertained!?

Even if this project fails I think I'll have gotten my $45 worth of backer pledge out of all the drama this has created.

In other news I've somehow managed to log 22 hours into the combat test and beta version of Elite Dangerous only playing a few hours at night. That said I would recommend people to hold out for the release of Elite as it's really just a shell of core game functions that they have implemented.

I don't see this as being anything new or groundbreaking, the first game I played that had this was Starflight, mostly out of necessity due to needing to fit on a 5 1/4 floppy.

The one problem though is that it's pretty easy to see patterns of repetition, kind of like Borderlands and their "bazillions" of guns routine.

News Comments > Star Citizen Arena Commander Expands; New Ship Added
14. Re: Star Citizen Arena Commander Expands; New Ship Added Aug 3, 2014, 15:04 DangerDog
 
You could say the same thing about Elite Dangerous, just wait till it's matured beyond the beta stage and beyond - especially the expansion packs.

Elite Dangerous right now just has a wow factor to it, mostly if you're and old skool player of the original game. Some aspects will never get there though such as extensive PvP, I just don't think it'll happen with the network design they've implemented which for many is upsetting.

I suppose they could always create some sort of arena combat mode only for ED at some point to concentrate the action against other people.

The way Star Citizen is shilling for a game that isn't anywhere close to being even in beta seems like a huge turnoff to me, but if shiny pictures of virtual ships gets you all hot and sweaty - go for it.

Looks like it could be a cool puzzle game, little bit flat in terms of the level design.
