Here's a photo of a Corgi dressed up as a spaceship.

I think that photo will break the internet.

At least they're shaking the setting up a bit, though I have no interest in this, as I have zero desire to play with spears and rocks as my weapons.

I'm also curious as to what Turok Takkar will climb in order to clear parts of the fog of war away. Dead Tyrannosaurus bodies?

PC version a month later, and undoubtedly done by Ubisoft Kiev, so anyone interested may want to wait an extra month until it's patched.

I've always kinda wondered why big ad companies don't just buy Adblockers. I mean, how much would it cost, 50K? 100? Then you modify it so that your ads are shown.

Once everyone moves to a different adblocker, you repeat the process.

Maybe they could tease no longer handing PC versions of their games to the amputated gimps at Ubisoft Kiev.

I haven't played the latest Hitman, AssCreed or Watchdogs, but FC4 at least runs with everything high/max on my ~4 year old rig with a GF660, so that one at least seemed like a pretty decent PC version.

Did you get it at launch day? Because it didn't run very well. Ten patches later it's finally good, though patch #9 completely broke the PC version in that it would no longer save anyone's progress. "Why would a PC version need manual saves? A single save point is perfectly fine."

(Case in point, in my last game I'm stuck in Shangri La. It keeps crashing at the same point every single time, and since I have no save game to revert back to, I'm basically screwed. I could start over, of course, but being ~ 70% in already I don't really have much motivation.)

Given how bloody bitter everyone on this site has been for the last years, not shitting on something probably singles me out as a shill; or worse, someone that actually enjoys recent games.

Oh wow, we haven't heard that rhetoric befo...zzzzzzz.

Said in a really small voice "Silent Hunter 6!"

Haha. Somewhere at Ubisoft, a lead designer just got a giant exclamation mark over his head.

Can I just say that I really don't need a game that's far, far bigger than the Witcher 3? Witcher 3 is plenty huge already, both land mass size and content wise.

Please don't go overboard and make it too large. Instead, make the quests more reactive, more involved. Have diverging paths.

No, a Hollywood movie based on this! Written, produced, and directed by Chris Roberts. Starring: Chris Roberts as The Chairman. Featuring an empty chair and Clint Eastwood pointing at and talking about it.

That's still more content than this 'game' has...

Good on them! Stand your ground, CIG has nothing.

To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Macbeth Act 5, scene 5, 19–28

Tomorrow, tomorrow, I love ya, tomorrow...
You're only a day away.

And now CR is stuck. Either he sues, and loses monstrous chunks of whatever cash he has left to his laywers, or he backs down and shows he's all bark and no bite, and he was just trying to bully a damning article away.

So yeah... well played, I guess?

1) It's a government agency.
2) Thus you have no oversight.
3) Nor are you held to any kind of quality of work.
4) And you can basically never get fired.
5) Yay.

Just because you said that now we're going to get an Ass Creed + Far Cry crossover. Oh wait, they're virtually the same thing anyway.

I was gonna say, an Ass Creed / Far Cry crossover? What would that look like exactly? Like AC Syndicate? Or Far Cry 5?

Some Joe Schmoe runs off with 50K from Kickstarter and nobody except the people who got taken really give a shit. You take off with 90 million, and someone WILL hunt your ass down.

I feel like you just paraphrased Hans Grubber in Die Hard talking to Holly Maclain.

Haha, that may have been in the back of my mind and guiding my words.

Thomas Hennessy, CIG’s Videographer, commented on the latest controversy in a recent podcast interview

https://soundcloud.com/imperialnewsnetwork/innside-cig-thomas-hennessy/s-t5oor

Basically he states:
"Controversy sells either its true or not. It is sad. People are working hard and its almost like a personal attack...I would say this... If SC is a scam it is one of the worst scams ever. Because we are actually building a game. If it was really a scam why would open all these offices, hire all these people, doing all this work...It is unfortunate that sometimes headlines and controversy sells, but its not.."


I genuinely do not believe that SC is a scam, as in that they're just trying to rake in as much money as possible and when the well dries up, they take it and run. That's not what it is. Some Joe Schmoe runs off with 50K from Kickstarter and nobody except the people who got taken really give a shit and nobody is going to go nuts over it. You take off with 90 million, however, and someone WILL hunt your ass down. Also, the devs working for CIG would not be part of that, as they would see little to nothing of that money and would forever ruin their names in the industry.

I DO think, however, that they are selling flash over substance, are focused almost solely on pretty pictures of pretend starships, and are taking advantage of the gullibility / craziness of people who keep forking over hundreds if not thousands of dollars for said pictures of pretend starships.

I think they're going to keep selling these bullshit ships-for-$400 for as long as they can, just to keep everyone employed. Every month that they can pull in 2-3 million is another month everyone gets paid, gets to travel around the world "to visit all the studios" on backer dime, etc. Only once that well appears to dry up, will something 'final' be shipped.

In that, I can see why an ex-employee would say that he feels it to be a 'con.'

My guess is that Chris is worried that The Escapist article and any further bad press with decrease the amount of future gamer funding, which means they most likely do not have enough funds to complete the game.

Which goes 100% against the entire concept of crowd funding. They stopped doing stretch goals at 65 million, and are now at ~ 90 million. They should EASILY have enough money to complete everything promised at 65 million.

The fact/assumption that they don't means they've just been promising things without any kind of idea what it would actually cost to implement them.

Their constant need for more money to complete the game they essentially promised to make with less money is just disingenuous.

Publishing an article claiming that Sandi Gardiner is racist without anything to substantiate that claim or any attempt to seek comment is defamation.

I can't re-read the article at work, but I don't think that's what they did. I think it said something like "CSR1 also said that Sandi was racist and refused to hire someone because 'we aren't hiring a black girl.' "

That's not stating that she is racist, that's just repeating what your anonymous source tells you. I think legally there's probably a pretty big difference between the two, but admittedly I have little knowledge with regards to the legal system.
