News Comments > Strike Vector Free Content Released
5. Re: Strike Vector Free Content Released Mar 1, 2014, 06:34 Hump
 

I keep meaning to look into this game, but never get around to it. How is it?

Good fun but the learning curve is brutal.

When I say "learning curve" I don't mean complexity (that aspect is gloriously simple) I'm referring to getting acclimated to the speed of combat.

Also, the levels are highly detailed and its difficult to pick out a small ship among the background....even with the directional arrows that the game has.

or, to put it simply, take Descent/Forsaken and crank it to 11.....

Still pretty buggy. Another month of work before the release wouldve done this a world of good.

Having said that, its still just as fun as it always has.

MS had all the time in the world and all the resources to do what STEAM has done and do it on two major gaming platforms.

Glad to see that business model of selling their beloved OS is at least working well for them.


ugh

No surprises here.

Scott and George have exposed themselves time and time again as the two biggest shitbags the gaming industry ever spawned.

Someone needs to sit them down and explain to them that money needs to be earned by hard work, not just catching up on their quarterly legal retainer payments.

Once again, Lawyers fuck up everything that is good.

It amazes me that companies involved in the arts (music, games, film, etc) have to vett their creative vision to mindless human garbage who almost always are totally clueless to the needs/wants of the marketplace.

Unless they've added to it, the early access honestly isn't as fun as the tech demo. Two small tracks, with less environment detail than Ultimate Carnage. I understand it's not final, so I'm just gonna let it sit. I spent way, WAY more time in the tech demo, as it oddly offers more to do than the early access game.

And I still believe they should allow for people to play the tech demo map in multiplayer as part of the full game. We'd invent our own weird game rules, they wouldn't need to do much other than tacking the map into the track list.
There are 2 race tracks and a demo derby stadium in the early access game. Each race track can be raced 12/24 or no car at all (practice mode)
I have been playing the demo derby mode with 24 cars and loving it.
The races are fun too to mix things up a bit.
I think ones it is finished it will be an amazing racing game.

I bought this in early-access on Steam. To be honest, the current offering isn't worth the approximate $25 they are asking for it. Yeah, you get a couple race tracks and a demo derby arena. There are two playable cars.

It's fun, sure, but you can literally play through all the offered content in 10 minutes, and then you are repeating.

Not sure what one would expect. you are helping them build the final product. The demo shouldn't be viewed as anything other than a taste while they work on the full game. Relax and be patient while the final product is on its way.

Last game Cliff was involved in that was worthwhile was UT2k4. Unless he's capable of resurrecting that experience for current gen players he should just stay put wherever he is.

I wouldn't blame DICE per se, it is probably EA pressuring DICE to ship something that wasn't ready.

I enjoyed his community commentary on Planetside 2 but he tries a little to hard to be a character. When it comes to Anglo accented game critics, Yahtzee has that field all wrapped up.

the strategy is usually to make the defendant balance out how much it would cost to litigate vs. how much to settle. The latter is almosy always cheaper. Unfortunately.

I was given an install CD for WorldsOnline when I got my first PC. It was the poster child of a net bubble company that sucked up millions for a total shit product. Of course when management were exposed as useless money sponges and the bubble went pear-shaped, they started patent trolling.

Human garbage all around.
