News Comments > Star Citizen Arena Commander Released
100. Re: Star Citizen Arena Commander Released Jun 5, 2014, 02:01 Sugarman
At first I didn't like the controls, but after playing more and getting used to it I kinda like that it's complex. It really will depend on pilot skill instead of just ship specs. So any 14 year old can't just purchase the game, dive right in and own everyone within range. It looks like it's meant to be an adult's game, as in experience matters just as much as twitch response. I find that the longer I play it and learn about how to control/use strategies, the more I enjoy it.

Also, I was extremely impressed with the beauty of the game, the complex damage models, the attention to detail, it really was above what I expected for such an early state. I also bought Elite Dangerous and enjoy it far more than I expected I would. As for Limit Theory, i'll be buying it as well when available.

I remember one of my previous favorite space games, Freespace 2, back when you had to actually go to a store and buy games, amazing that the genre has been ignored for such a long time and awesome that it's making such a comeback due to crowdfunding.

I loaned a joystick to one of my younger employees to use as a prop for a project that focused on past tech, as of yesterday I instructed him to please bring it back to me, because now I need it again, who'd have ever thought we'd be dusting them off again!

We were scheduled to get them the other day. Apparently it was only from the cockpit looking straight up... "referencing one of the bugs"

Not sure why they give dates out, they should stick to "it will possibly be out on xxx date pending no game stopping bugs". No matter, I've waited this long, and I just bought ED, time to dust off my old joysticks, that is, if I can find them.

Who'd have ever thought space games would make a comeback, either way, I'm happy they have.

I'm ticket # 36,000 something. Original backer from October 2012. No regrets here. Like I said, I've wasted much more on far worse things. You all need to either grow up or just go on to trashing something else, because really, none of us care anything about what you think. We just want to have fun, if not, then I suppose we'll wait till the next fun spacegame comes out....

Constellation with LTI here! I plan to have a blast with friends, if not, then I guess it was a bad investment. No matter, I've made far more than that on good investments. This was a chance I was willing to take for the fun of it.

I put $275 towards it already. I've spent more than that in one night out with friends on a normal fun night. Most likely more fun than most of you have had outside of your grandma's basement when she surprised you with twinkies and hot pockets.

If I feel the need I will put even more towards their funding. If you really follow everything they are doing you will see how much effort they are putting into this to make it like nothing else. Even if it bombs, I'm out what, "a couple nights spending money on the town", so to me, it's nothing.

Even if it's mediocre then it's worth it. If not, I've lost more than that on stocks or a couple nights out with friends, so it really doesn't matter.

For the chance that it might be what they say it is going to be, I will wholeheartedly take that chance and support them. If not, then I'll just stay home for two weeks in a row and recoup my losses.

"Office Space" is all I could think of after seeing this.

Well-well look. I already told you: I deal with the god damn customers so the engineers don't have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can't you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?

I was never all that thrilled by Homeworld, definitely had it's good points but seemed lacking at times. That was a while ago so I may think differently if I tried it again. Nexus the Jupiter Incident was always one of my favorites, if one were to draw similarities. Not to pee in anyone's cheerios, just my opinion. I am a sucker for space/sci-fi games so I'm still hoping they do a good job with it.

In large doses the most you'll actually see are side effects and interactions with tyramine "in lots of aged cheeses" which will give you a killer headache. Low dosages started early will make it so you'll never need a higher dose and your dog/human will retain their mental capacity right up until other parts of the body decide it's time to go!

Don't just read one article, actually do the research on it. It's one of the safest MAO-B inhibitors out there. Also read up on how monoamine oxidase inhibitors work.

When they start to get old you can give them very low doses of seleginline "called anipryl" for dogs. It can be bought online or just get it from your vet.

Do some reading on it, if started earlier it keeps the brain younger and your dog won't experience any of the age related brain deterioration effects that will inevitably come with old age. Works on humans as well, it was actually designed first for human use. It keeps the brain from losing it's ability to produce the normal amounts of dopamine and norepinephrine.

They mostly prescribe it after your dogs mental state starts to decline but I would think the earlier you start it the more benefit you'd see in the long run.

So we can completely trust whatever is posted in the news about someone whom the US government is most likely planning his accidental death as we speak????

Really, why even bother to read this crap. Lets say I found out the company I worked for was ripping off all the employees/customers illegally and I turned them in, think of the employees as us, the misinformed citizen, of course said company is gonna go on a smear campaign against that person.

I can't seem to ever get past the first 30 seconds of VGHS. Maybe it's me, but it's about as shallow as one of those tiny ponds you see along the highway that always inevitably dries up.

Hit F11 to enter world editor, hit j to pause physics "basically pause game" follow instructions on the beamng wiki on how to spawn cars.

Reign them down from above or setup crash simulations. Also somewhere on the wiki it shows you how to turn on AI for spawned cars, although it is a bit buggy.

Learn the slow motion keys and have a blast!

What happened to this aforementioned person doing things that helped where we live be a better place? It's as if a sneakier, less moustached Hitler, were unfrozen, given an appearance that made him seem like the underdog so even those who were worst off in our culture would rally behind him, placed in office by the people who actually control us, "the banks and large corporations who basically give money to every legislator or anyone in a controlling position of government of whom answer to the ones lining their pockets with cash", then, made us one of the most policed/uberveillanced "yes, that's a slang term" countries in the world. How can those in control spend billions spying on their own and let education funding fall off the bottom of the chart? If it isn't already obvious, the majority of us are purposely being kept in the dark/uneducated so those who would wish to keep us as their pets, and to do so with as they please whenever they please with purposes hidden to us but to which us being controlled believe is a just and patriotic cause will throw ourselves in harms way for. How about we pledge allegiance to the entire world and it's well being, not just ourselves as we've been brainwashed to do since gradeschool. There will always be bad people, and I'd like to believe they are a minority, although it would seem that those bad people of whom are the minority are now in a position to control all of us at present. Why would we normal/happy people constantly be on the offensive, thinking of schemes to control others? Simple fact, we wouldn't, we are happy. Those who aren't happy until they can control every aspect of everything we do and can do so as they please and to anyone they see fit, be that through laws constructed by those in power "I've gone over this, refer to earlier in this subjective rant", be it moral or immoral. We became the nation we are today because we fought injustice at one time and tyranny. Now we've became those whom we so solemnly fought to free ourselves from,and they are remarkably similar to some of us. How about we devote more towards making us better as a people and less towards punishing everyone because they've had a negative impact on the bottom line of a corporation who should no longer be relevant, only bettering a few who may have to sacrifice buying a small island in a sunny yet comfortable spot on the globe we all share, and should share equally. Store this in your NSA archives, maybe 100 years from now someone will read it and wonder how we got ourselves into such a terrible predicament.

I have a lot of fun in multiplayer. Just make sure to "friend" the ones who aren't idiots and you'll have a blast when playing with a good group.

It says "home internet users", so maybe us businesses are safe for now, but how long until they decide to throttle us as well once everyone learns they just need to take their device to any business with free wifi and go crazy. The music mafia and the mpaa need to just go away, I'm sorry but they are trying like hell to keep an archaic business model running in a world that no longer supports it in the same fashion as it did 20 years ago.

I have free internet at my business and I really don't want to block ports or certain traffic "of which there is always a way around", or password protect my open wifi hotspot for customers only, because lets face it, I'd be out helping half the customers enter a password every day or they just get mad and go somewhere else. So lets say a random customer brings in a laptop every day, not the same customer but lets say just one laptop or device is brought in per day and that person downloads a song or movie or whatever. I say one device to give an example, there are many more than that per day. Lets just say one person per day is caught by the internet police downloading something they shouldn't and I receive one warning per day. If they throttle my internet every six days I'm going to be one pissed off business customer.

I contributed. What's 30-40 bucks, I can waste double that on a date or night out at the bar. If it sucks just think of it as the night you wasted $50 buying some girl drinks and you didn't get any.
