I dont get all the hate.
GTA 5 took 7 years to complete on the PC. Star Citizen is at least as big, if not much bigger. So of course it will take at least as long.
But I guess now I know why publishers dont announce games that early... because of whiners who cant even put 1 and 1 together.

Apples and oranges, buddy. Does Rockstar ever ask anyone for dime one? CR asked for money for a WC type game and has blown it off. Rockstar actually delivers the game you know they're making. And lastly, they have a successful track record, wildly successful.
He said from day one that they are going to expand this game as much as the money allows it to. It was always going to be massive, not just a "WC" game. Also CR didnt have the money to back it from the start. Thats why it grew slowly, when they realized they get much more money than needed for what you call a "WC game". It was known from the start, yet people like you still whine like it wasnt.
I rather wait a long time than see another early access shit game that will cut down their development team, once they got all the money.

The Crysis games were love 'em or hate 'em kind of games - personally I loved them - but there's no question Crytek made some incredible tech. It's a shame nothing really interesting beyond the Crysis series made use of it. Unless I'm missing something? (And no, I'm not counting Star Citizen because from what I've read CIG has retooled it to the point that it is practically a new engine.)

I also loved Crysis. I think I played 1 & 2. Maybe 3? I remember getting a little tired of it in the middle of the second game, with some tedious passages.

Then again, saying that, I remember the end of the original Far Cry, where you had a sequence requiring you to fight something like 6 rocket mutants at once. I had to "cheat" by pushing a chair in the path of an auto-close door so I could run back halfway through for ammo and health. It... it just wasn't remotely fun.

edit - This part here, if I recall. Not even fun to watch. And wow, I don't remember Far Cry looking that awful.
Loved Crysis 1, but 2 and 3 were just boring. I actually had to force myself to complete them. I already forgot their plots again.

Cry me a fucking river. Forget the messenger, look at the fucking data. Stop pulling another Snowden on this one US citizens.

Oh please, this is all made up. The most they "manipulated" was with their RT station telling more truth than our MSM does nowadays.

Here's an article on what the pilots who fly the F-35 actually think of it.

A taste:

I was conducting a strike mission and Red Air was coming at me. In a 4th Gen fighter you must do a whole lot of interpretation. You see things in azimuth, and you see things in elevation. In the F-35 you just see the Godís eye view of the whole world. Itís very much like you are watching the briefing in real time.

I am coming in to perform the simulated weapons release, and Red Air is coming the other direction. I have enough situational awareness to assess whether Red Air is going to be a factor to me by the time I release the weapon. I can make the decision, Iím going to go to the target, Iím going to release this weapon. Simultaneously I pre-target the threat, and as soon as I release the A2G weapon, I can flip a switch with my thumb and shoot the Red Air. This is difficult to do in a 4th Gen fighter, because there is so much manipulation of systems in the cockpit. All while paying attention to the basic mechanics of flying the airplane and interpreting threat warnings that are often very vague, or only directional. In the F-35 I know where the threats are, what they are and I can thread the needle. I can tell that the adversary is out in front of me and I can make a very, very smart decision about whether to continue or get out of there. All that, and I can very easily switch between mission sets.
Nobody questions that the electronics in the F-35 are very advanced. Its still a plane that wasnt necessary, since you could simply upgrade older planes with stuff like that or make a new simpler one. Stealth is overrated and this plane tries to do too many jobs at once. Thats why its mediocre at best.

I recently saw a picture of a F-35 flying side by side with a F-16 at low speeds. The F-35 had to fly a far higher angle and to the eye it seemed like it was very close to stalling. The F-16 went pretty much straight.
I thought that picture revealed how bad the aerodynamics of that plane really are.

Still trying to save face after your horrible lies?

You would have to be a fucking idiot to give these guys more money in the future. Even if they decided to implement all the features they promised over the next 2 years.

You know what they are.
Are you really surprised companies are exploiting idiots like those?
Look at several early access games. They have been in alpha for years, yet have achieved only minor stuff, are still as buggy as when they were released to the public and charge an insane price for that is offered. Yet you still see hordes of fanboys defending what they do blindly. Even simple critical questions trigger them.
I would exploit the crap out of people like those too. They dont deserve better.

There are ways to make the Forged Alliance AI run just fine with even 1500 units at its disposal. Sorian AI for one, but also be sure to disable land and naval expansion bases. Those kill game performance. Each expansion base is an entire new AI that persists even if you wipe out its units.
I have been playing this game since release and still do. And no, it doesnt help much at all. The thing that really helped most is just getting a faster CPU. But it will still slow down sooner or later to a crawl with lots of AI on huge maps.

"Trumpís Immigration Crackdown Could Spark a Tech Brain Drain"
Another Blue fear mongering article.

Is he an illegal immigrant? Then he is here illegally. If not..what is the point of this article? Just because he is Hispanic he is scared all the sudden? And you people wonder why you lost the election

First, congratulations on your white penis!

Second, some of my foreign tech acquaintances who are here legally have already found themselves getting more racist comments since the election. This isn't some theoretical change. Trump's campaign rhetoric of deporting all the illegals and instituting things like Muslim bans and registries has brought the racists out of the woodwork. These people don't differentiate between types of brown people, they're all targets.

Third, hate crimes are demonstrably up since the election. That's just fact.

Given all this, why would you stay if you had skills and could work anywhere?

Sounds logical. Yet that doesnt mean they werent there before. They just werent as vocal, because of the cancer that is PC.
People need to grow a thicker hide again, that is obvious when you look at what they often call racism or hate crime.
If everyone is that touchy and it would go mainstream even more, we would go into a catastrophe with light speed. History has shown that more than enough times.

SupCom 2 was not disastrous. Maybe to you, but there are many out there who really like the game.

It was a financial disaster for Square enix, and overall a bad sequel, it had lower average score then supcom. So the consensus is supcom 2 is worse then the first and its expansion.

Supcom 2 is not a bad game, but it is a bad supreme commander sequel. Supcom 2 comes off like it should have been its own game or a spin off, but a mainline sequel.

Right after supcom 2 chris taylors development team collapsed and was picked up by wargaming, aka square enix didn't want chris taylor to do supcom 3. That right there tells you a lot about how well supcom 2 did.

Im curious suppa, where are you getting your information? Because I have completely different info on what went down. You see, Chris happens to be a very good friend of mine. And your details are far from being correct. There were a lot of other things happening that caused SupCom 3 to not happen, it was not because they didn't want to do. That's all I'm going to say about it because its not my place to speak for Chris.
That means SupCom3 would have been a true SupCom again and they learned from the SupCom2 disaster? Did he also learn from the disastrous SupCom1 AI issue that kills even the fastest PC today?

I really dont care what the pretty polygons and textures look like. If the fight mechanic is different from the other fights, its good enough.

However, this game is really weird for me. Somehow I really like it. The graphics are awesome, the atmosphere, the seasonal events, etc. Then when I play I feel so god damn epic with all the abilities, awesome looking armor, pretty animations. But then I suddenly feel weak, because you are. Even with max equipment. You can still have issues in high level zones, because you are not that strong, roaming trash mobs are extremely annoying because they can overwhelm you and even just killing one of them takes far too long. Equipment really doesnt change that much anyway, even when going from full greens to full pink.

And then you think by changing your spec you might be better, but you wont because the spec always feels like youre missing out on awesome stuff. Youre always thinking "oh man, I just want one/two/three more points to spend". But you cant.

And then theres the content. Playing through GW2 the first time was one of the best MMO experiences I ever had (far better than WoW). The voice acting, the zones, the characters. Simply awesome. But theres not much of it. After the second level 80 you have seen it all.
Theres so much space left on the map, but there are no zones there. They should have added much more content in all these years.

Ive only come back twice to this game, and always only for a few weeks. No other MMO I know is that boring that quickly.
Yet I always feel like I really want to like it, need to like it, since it has so much potential. But then reality strikes again and I stop playing again.

Sure... just forget about Abby Martin who was hosting Breaking the Set on Russia Today and who condemned the Russians actions in Crimea/Ukraine. Probably one of the most critical investigative journalist left on the whole world right now. And what did she get for her "insubordination" from RT? Congratulations and the support of the Russian Gov... That's right.
And when will Putin allow critical journalism in Russia?
He does. Its just there are not many that read their western propaganda. Most are NGOs nobody cares for in Russia. The critics you mention are a very small minority. The real opposition is far far FAR worse than Putin and nationalistic. Hes also not against gay people, as the western MSM want you to believe. Read that law for yourself and think about what happened in the 90s to Russia, AKA get a clue what that law tries to fix.

Ive only been watching this game in streams. I liked it, but not enough to buy it. But I always wondered why it has such a small player base, since its pretty much a massively improved CSGO.
After installing the free weekend version I now know why: Uplay is required.

Haha, yeah, since its the bad Russians who are to blame, instead of the people exposed in those hacks.
If we, as so called democratic and free countries, need god damn Russians (!!!) to get the truth to the public, the problem is our system.

Killing the messenger has become trend again lately. Also shows where were really headed.

I would response but it would be a waste of my time. Suffice to say I think you are absurd. On multiple levels. Feel free to call me a sheeple, or whatever the preferred tagline is for people who aren't moronic enough to take RT at face value.
What does that have to do with RT? Are you blaming them now for the leaks? Are you denying facts, just because they involve Russians in one way or the other? "Its all Russian, so they must be all in it"? Are you seriously dodging a discussion because you, for whatever reason, think I watch RT all day long, believe everything they say and call everyone sheeple and whatever else your messed up stereotyping holds? I think you should look in a mirror before you attack other people. But thanks for exposing your massive hypocrisy. That indeed makes a discussion completely pointless.

It's concerning when you're global allies greet an election result with shock and horror, while your global adversaries greet it with delight and congratulations to the victor.
The only problem is that youre seeing those countries as your adversaries. That is the only reason the world is in that mess right now. Russia didnt expand towards NATO/EU. Russia didnt start several wars in Africa and the Middle East.
