Huge Crowdfunded Project 'Star Citizen' Gets Negative Articles Scrubbed From Web

The headline should read "We Assume That Huge Crowdfunded Project 'Star Citizen' Gets Negative Articles Scrubbed From Web"

They really hav nothing to go on but an identical press release by both CIG and The Escapist as to why the articles were taken down.

Having read that the initial reports of the game's problems were blown completely out of proportion, I can say that I'm back to wanting this game. Hopefully by the time I finish ME 3 Andomeda will be discounted.

Definitely well deserved. I will say I was disappointed with the Witcher 2 - the story was weak and the boss battles were frickin' frustrating - but I loved the first and third. The Witcher 3 is the best RPG I've ever played.

It seems that the first EA Battlefront was critically panned for being dull and cynically exploitative of consumers, yet the fucking thing sold upwards of 15 million copies, so expect the same garbage this time around.

With everything that has been revealed in the past several years about data collection is there anyone who believes there is any "privacy" on the internet?

With the Patriot Act being a thing, (that I might point out was not only NOT repealed by the previous adminstration, but expanded upon massively...) isn't it apparent that there really isn't any privacy to be had in the modern digital age?

That's not to say I'm happy about it, but I'm realistic. When Congress and Adminstrations of both parties run rampant over people's rights, I don't see any reason to single out this one thing and suddenly be concerned.

Pitchford really needs to STFU. He can't help but to say something incredibly stupid every time he opens his mouth. I absolutely love the Borderlands series but I am under no illusions that Pitchford is anything other than a charlatan con man.

Not sure why everyone in here is talking about the new Zelda as if it's the greatest game of all time. Ironically enough, although it has stellar 97 average critic score, the user reviews are only a 75 average on metacritic.com. Lots of "over-rated" and "huge world with nothing in it" complaints, among a dozen other things. Don't buy into the hype with ANY game, whether it's the new Mass Effect OR the new Zelda.

Are there any games similar to Mass Effect that have come out in the last couple years that were actually decent? I'm looking for an alternative.

Zelda is fucking awesome, you can't take 3 steps without finding something to interact with. Anyone who says there isn't anything to do is fucking blind. Zelda is a reminder of all that video games have been,and should be...buy it.

I almost bought a Wii-U just to play the new Zelda. The big problem for me is the weapon degradation. That looks like it would be a game-breaker for me. The last game that I really enjoyed with such a degradation system as Zelda's was System Shock 2, and that was a LOOONG time ago. And to this day I still maintain that it would be have been better without it.

As far as ME: Andromeda goes, I am not in any hurry. I still need to play ME3 anyway.

Bad art = license to harass. I know game quality is all over the place, but I'm not sure we even DESERVE good games anymore.

Well, you and I do. And probably jdreyer and Half-Elf. But no one else though.

I did some checking back to Bioware's older games to refresh my memory. Two things I noticed:

1) The games as far back as the original Dragon Age from 2003 all have better faces than what I've seen of Andromeda so far.

2) No matter what the game, all of Bioware's games that use 3D up-close models have characters with eyes that are just... wrong.

Andromeda's characters are made worse by the fact that the eyes look as fucked up as ever, AND they use incredibly badly made faces on the female characters with just stupid-looking expressions that are so goofy they look comical. In this way, yes, Andromeda is markedly worse than any Bethesda game's characters by a substantial margin in my opinion.

Having said that, I don't play games for facial features and animations - hell, I managed to make through the original Max Payne over a dozen times through the years with a lead character who looks like he's been smelling shit the whole game. The dialog is actually more of a big deal for me; dialog or voice acting that's bad enough (not "so bad it's good" like the original Resident Evil or the aforementioned Max Payne, just BAD) can basically ruin the experience for me if there's enough of it in the game. So that's what is really concerning to me about Andromeda.

As for the stupid controversy surrounding the harassment of the Bioware employee... I'm honestly so tired of the internet's bullshit. This shit is just nauseating. The one thing I will definitively say is fuck everyone who feels it is acceptable to verbally abuse a person the way this Bioware employee (EDIT: Lead Designer or not) has been. Over shit you don't like in a fucking videogame. Gender is irrelevant; it's fucking wrong and if you do it you're a piece of shit who should fucking die. And while I'm at it, fuck Kotaku for making this about their stupid fucking agenda with their inferences that this is driven by Gamersgaters and Trump voters. Fucking idiots. All this shit does is stir the pot and escalate the situation, paving the way for more hateful back and forth nonsense.

I played it on release and while I think the shit storm about how bad it was was overblown there's no denying it had some problems. My impression was that it was a few solid patches away from a great game.

Very happy about the Winston buff. I play him a lot and I constantly get called a noob just for picking him because "he's not good". When I play Winston I'm a sniper's and healer's worst nightmare... Or at least I try to be.

I've never been into strictly skill-based mp shooters because I suck, so theoretically I'm the target audience for this. The problem is that Overwatch is already completely dominating that field. But even if asymmetric, hero-based shooters are all the rage, surely there is still a market for the skill-based shooter. If the Quake franchise isn't going to fill that void, who else will? Maybe a new Unreal Tournament? Of course, Cliffy B isn't with Epic anymore and is busy on Lawbreakers, another hero- based shooter...

Taking a wait-and-see approach on this one. It looks good in some ways, questionable in others. I can wait.

I'm probably one of the few but I didn't like the movie. At all. I normally groove to Tarantino flicks but Reservoir Dogs? Nope. Didn't like it. Anyway, there was already one bad game based on the film - do we really need another?
