All I want is freelancer with these graphics and a true dynamic economy.

The battery test thing is ingenious. The only problem I see is that he is testing a pretty much dead battery vs a brand new one. I'd bet the difference between two used batteries (but not dead) would be hard to tell.

I tried so hard to get into X3 but the control scheme just did me in... I love space games. Freelancer is one of my favorite games of all time. I backed Star Citizen for more money than I've ever spent on a game before.

News Comments > Star Citizen Economy Trailer
3. Re: Star Citizen Economy Trailer Jul 7, 2013, 10:07 Efflixi
 
I backed this on kickstarter and put a lot of money into it. A real player driven economy was promised for Freelancer but dropped due to time. If this is how it will REALLY work, then this will be amazing. I foresee merchant guilds hiring mercs to protects their fleets of traders (i'll be into the trading business i think!), pirates attacking the trade ships, the mercs fighting them off. God, it sounds glorious.

I wonder though, where does the *actual* raw materials come from? Is there asteroid/planet mining? Can you mine a small asteroid completely dry and eventually end up with a zone where there are no raw materials left? While i love the idea of a dynamic economy, unless the materials are literally limited in supply somehow, it won't matter in the end.

You'll end up with huge guilds hording materials and divvying them out to the highest bidder and no one can do anything about it. Does anyone know if this addressed anywhere? He says in the trailer (and i realize it's most likely just an example) that it takes 3 tons of this, 1 ton of that, and 1 ton of another thing to make these items. Where does that actually originate from?

News Comments > Sanctum 2 Road to Elysion DLC Next Week
2. Re: Sanctum 2 Road to Elysion DLC Next Week Jun 20, 2013, 20:23 Efflixi
 
I have quite a few hours in the original Sanctum. Almost all of it co-op with a friend. I adored Sanctum. It's the perfect mix of FPS and tower defense.

Sanctum 2, isn't a bad game in and of itself. But it eschews most of the TD formula for more FPS. It feels wrong and you're towers basically seem useless.

All I wanted from Sanctum 2 was better graphics and more/better levels. I got those (i like the level design), but all the other crap I don't like and some of it i even hate. You can't tell how many kills a tower got for example so you know if to upgrade it or sell it. The original had that. Why did they remove it?

I hate the class system, it's broken and unbalanced.

To put it simply, it went from a Tower Defense games with FPS elements, to an FPS game with Tower Defense elements. I won't be buying the expansion.

I have over 200 games on steam, i play less than 10 of them. It's not that i don't like them (some of them i don't like, but most i do), it's just finding time and the gumption to actually play 200+ games!

Final Score:
Xbox 1 - PlayStation 4


I've never owned a console before (PC guy for 25 years), but as soon as I get some money, I'm pre-ordering a PS4 just to spite MS.

The robotic fly is amazingly cool but I couldn't help but notice it was tethered. I'm assuming the thin wire was for power. When will battery or "engine" technology catch up and be able to power this thing autonomously?

I saw the video of this last week, and it looks exhausting. I get wanting the VR experience that the Occulus Rift brings, but why would I want to run around on a treadmill?

I'm going to KS a game called "Rabid Snow Wolves" that requires this and a rift. It involves a lot of looking over your shoulder.


Meh. It's not truly frightening unless I'm in a freshly waxed kitchen and wearing socks.

Gary Larson made a Farside about this... http://img.talkandroid.com/uploads/2012/03/luposlipaphobia.jpg

I've been coming to Blues News since before it was called that! It used to be Blues Quake Rag if i'm not mistaken. Not sure why it took me a year to register on the site. I tend to lurk mostly, only a few hundred posts in 13 years.

Edit: Ha! I found a TRUE lurker... http://www.bluesnews.com/cgi-bin/board.pl?action=userinfo&user=22

The 22nd person to register on the site and less than 100 posts in 14 years.

I wish there was a way to run a server and turn off certain things. I want the new cart mechanics, biome updates, and such for example, but I don't want XP, alchemy or enchanting. I basically want an updated version of how it was before it went actual release.

I already own Kerbal Space Program (my favorite game of the past SEVERAL years...) and I am seriously considering buying it on a steam because it's that awesome. I want to give them more money! I remember seeing starforge a while back and it looked cool. If Prison Architect is as cool as Aseven is saying, it's worth looking into as well.
