SlimRam, damn I am truly sorry for what you have had to endure this year.
I know a few other Blue'ers have had a pretty rough year. And while I'm not religious, you all are in my thoughts and prayers, and hopefully we'll make it to 2017.

Planet Coaster is awesome *cue Everything is Awesome song*
Some of the sculptures people are making out of the terrain tools is impressive (Yoda, Dragons, etc).

I never really get the "too little too late" comments that get thrown around whenever a dev tries to update a game that wasn't what it should have been at launch. If you paid $60 for the game, isn't developer support post launch a good thing?

It's the PR Fluff piece that totally ignores that the game launched without explicit features.
But you don't sit there and try to polish yourself up by saying 'we spent 5 years developing a game, 6 weeks updating a broken game (even after changing the release date multiple times), 7 patches, and THEN have the balls to talk about adding crap to a game instead of offering what was original promised.
Not to mention this is the 1st response from Hello Games beyond patch notes since the games launch.

Had they been upfront and honest about features, reduced the price of the game, and not had a communication blackout, things (pretty sure) would be different from a consumer standpoint. But as it stands, Hello Games can go fuck themselves.

Mrs Brady and Castro, talk about Yin/Yang.

And that guy was "barely" hit, bullshit, he still had hair!

Sorry about your Witcher 3 problems, but it will be worth it.

So we started "Peak" yesterday at Amazon and I have to tell you, so far I am bored out of my life. With a new distribution system for the midwest and a new sort center in New Jersey, we are so slow it's fucking insane. I don't do well standing around and waiting for trucks to show up.
So please do me a favor and buy more shit on Amazon. I'm bored and need something to do!

I use to like going into the Dark Zones by myself, spend a few hours getting stuff to the extraction point. But with this Cut the Wire shit, if there are 2 people there they can kill me and waste all the time I spent carefully getting through the Dark Zone.

I could be very keen on Planet Coaster, anyone trying it out? Feedback please.

what clint said, also check my post history I did a quick summary of the game.

Bottom line, if you ever loved the RCT games, this is the holy grail. The power of the tools (for coasters, scenery, terrain) is amazing. The only limit is your creativity. As I said in my summary before. If RCT 3 was square blocks, this would be every single piece of Lego ever created all at your fingertips.
Performance wise I have a i7-3770K @3.50, a 970GTX, 16 gigs of ram and have loaded up some INSANE detailed parks and was surprised how everything was still smooth as hell (day or night). 60fps? No, but over 30fps easily. Worth the cost of admission.

Ship the game.

They have shipped the game. In fact, there are so many ships planned for the game that they've probably overshipped the game.


All it needs is to be Flagshipped (oh yeah worked in a Hellgate: London joke!)

WTF DUDE WHERE IS THE FUCKING MONEY THAT WAS ALREADY GIVEN TO YOU?!?
Caps lock key is intermittent, maybe they should give you some of the money for a new keyboard instead of using it on the game. nah

I never use the caps lock key. They need to pay me for destroying the shift key on my keyboard.

Also want to know the specs of the systems, cause we went through this shit with Alan Wake and the mega computer from the future they used for the tech demo's and come to find out it was pretty much gutted to work on a 360.
Fuck it.

Few things.

1) Level design, very hallway/room/hallway (granted I didn't get very far into the video). Hey look at all those baddies running right at us at this amazingly placed hallway. And watch out for the rocket guys at position X and Y and Z.
2) Why do games recently have all the voice work sound like they are standing next to you. Some have been good by making the voice audio get quieter and then it's over a radio (and vice versa). But this isn't one of them.

Just seems meh to me, sorry just being honest.
It reminds me of Star Wars Republic Commando's (which still holds up pretty well), but not as good.

I loaded up an amazing park that is just pure fantasy land with castles and it ran smooth as hell. Was it expecting to crush my system.

Hats off to Frontier.
