Open software standards and a bunch of hardware different vendors catering to different levels of customer expectations is probably the best way to go with VR, so I'm all for this.


Not from a developers point of view it isn't.

I got as far as "oregon trail in space" and lost interest.

second look, it might be decent. I upvoted it on greenlight, looks like the kickstarter is just something they're doing to get some extra funding but the game looks well on its way to being made.

Has Skyrim, now three years old, finally run out of Steam?

nope, number 5 on the most played game on steam, and I'm pretty sure the bestselling list doesn't include purchases from other sites - maybe it does?

http://store.steampowered.com/stats/

I just started playing not too long ago having had it in backlog for so long actually paid off with all the fantastic mods for the game.

"Not because were better than everyone else, but because building a game this way, in total lock step with your community, means its pretty hard to fail in the long run."

In other words, if this game sucks, it's our fault for having no sense of discipline when it comes to game design.

Why are we *paying* Chris Roberts then? Why pay any "game designer"? Just start throwing up internet polls and design by committee. We'll get fantastic game after fantastic game if we just let mob rule take over design.

It's a nice scape clause, blame the over vocal minority if the gameplay is crap.

2015 is where the game will be shaped. And it will be shaped with your input.

The full crazy that's been implemented by the insanity of expensive ship purchases and trying to turn this into Star Citizen : Second Life pretty much ensures that it's going to be a huge letdown no mater how hard they try.

He should have just tried to make a spiritual successor to Wing Commander with updated graphics and called it a day.

They were late in the decision to make it an online only game, perhaps they can implement some more social stuff into the game but it's original design goal seemed to be to remake Elite with better graphics and that's pretty much what it is right now.

Did not even try the multiplayer version of this. Enjoyed the campaign and that is about it.


Finally, someone actually played the single player portion.

You are dealing with designers who thought it was a good idea to integrate a good part of running the game, into a web browser.

Even after all the flak they got in 3 for doing it, they went on to put it in 4, to an even larger exent.

I dont think there is much hope for this game series anymore.

Dice never could code a decent server browser, Bad Company 2 came the closest but it took them a hell of a long time to get there. I actually prefer the battlelog way of web based server browsing, not that much different from using qtracker for BF3/BF2142.

The reaction from dice will most likely be that games going forward won't have any dedicated servers and just be instanced from a cluster of servers hosted by Amazon or Microsoft, 64 player games be damned if need be.

Hardline will still have dedicated servers but who wants to bet that the Star Wars flavored Battlefield game is "one click play" match making on instanced servers.

It was mainly a let down because of the fake e3 gameplay video, if that had never been shown then it just would have been another blip on the radar of poorly made games based on movies.

I can think of many games that are more deserving of being drug through the mud though.

Read that the Bioshock movie got scrapped because the director wanted an R rating. I guess the studio never bothered to see that the game was M rated.

They have a login authentication system similar to Steam that will only allow logins to computers you designate. It's off by default, just go to the Origin -> Account and Privacy -> Security and enable "Login Verification".

I don't see how anyone would be able to purchase a game key through Origin, you would have to take over the whole account. I'm not aware of any "gifting" system through Origin. Perhaps console game purchases spits out a key?

I think most "moral crusaders" (less, but still douchey version of the term SWJ) on here would say that the developers of Hatred can make their game all the like, but to distribute it on the biggest digital platform the PC has to offer... that's just going to create shitstorm of bad publicity for the industry.

Hatred has every right to made, but I don't think it should be easily promoted.

It's like releasing Cannibal Holocaust to major theatres and glorifying it's content

The whole point of the Greenlight system was to get the community involved, and so the community have spoken.

deal with it. Sunny

The main problem is they think it's just fine to spec out tablets with horrible stats besides the screen and battery thinking that you'll do everything online and just stream everything to your screen?

Even with tablets that have microsd card slots in many cases you can't install apps to that storage device.

People will download and play the game just to see what all they fuss is about, just like all the sheeple who just had to watch that retarded movie "The Interview".

The only reason this is really getting any attention is because the trailer made the game look like it was produced by a AAA studio, unlike most indie games - thanks Unreal Engine 4.

I'm not sure if they can actually make a game of any length with their apparent lack of wanting to put a backstory or most likely any story into the game. Killing civilians and cops in a GTA game can be amusing but quickly gets pretty boring.

I probably would have slammed quarters into that if it were an 80's arcade game, reminds me of Battlezone and the Star Trek arcade game.

The Star Wars Holiday Special was exceptionally bad but it did introduce us to one of the coolest characters in the movie franchise, Boba Fett. I'd still rate it higher than the prequel junk he made.
