That's an interesting read. Nothing to get too upset about, sounds like they're trying things, some of it doesn't work as expected, then they go back and do it again.

According to the article CR wanted to use the same animations in first and third person which is unusual. A game like skyrim that lets you play in first person or third person has different animations for each based on how they look / feel to the player. They tried to keep these animations unified and CR wasn't happy with the end result so they had to go add another set of animations and it sounds like part of that was dumping the original skeletal animation system and using the new one he's mentioned recently.

Not a smoking gun.... Maybe some could say he never should have tried the first method and that just wasted time.

Scrapping it if it doesn't work and doing what needs to be done to get it working right seems like the "right" thing to do.

Have the game finished and out by 2016 though...? Let's maybe just worry about getting the stuff out you planned for 2015 hunh? Gonna be end of August soon...

Oooh, cool.

I love how Hearthstone has evolved. I'm looking forward to these new cards and I do my best to keep doing my daily quests for gold and buying a new pack every day or two.

I'd love to see them start smashing the other franchises in as well. I'd play the shit out of a Starcraft themed card game. Diablo too!

Disney adding star wars themed lands

I'm very excited to see this. One thing I can say about Disney is their amusement parks are very impressive to walk around in. I can't wait to see what they make. I'm curious if they'll try and carve out a new area or if they'll just rip up tommorrow land and rebrand a lot of the stuff there. In Florida they have the land to just build something new but in LA I wonder if they'd use a part of the California Adventure side. Seems like a lot of open space still on that side and then they wouldn't have to get rid of the Tommorrow land in the magic kingdom.

Hope the expansion breathes some life into this game. Haven't it touched it since a week or two after launch and don't plan to until the expansion is out. In the past I'd probably just pre-order or buy the expansion at release but this game needs so much in the way of tweaking that I'll watch a youtube video showing off the game after the expansion and see if it's worth my time.

I don't know why people care so much about this game. It's dice...

It's Star Wars and fans have had enough bullshit to last a lifetime.

...what an odd comparison. I don't think either of those is very flattering.

Saw a preview for "13 Hours The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" and as soon as it said Michael Bay I just rolled my eyes and said WTF. And who picked that god awful name. Why not just call it Benghazi?

It's nice to see the large maps in action. A lot of impressive stuff to look at but considering how much is up in the air at this point it's tough to get excited. They've said the Social module / planetside would be ready in a month which seems kind of hilarious considering the FPS module is so long delayed. SQ42 is supposed to be on the horizon be I think it's safe to say they're just holding the bad news until the last moment.

I'll be exicted when they have AC2.0 ready so I can fly the constellation around myself and hopefully there will be a large map to explore where we can run into other people.

News Comments > Elite Dangerous Horizons Announced
18. Re: Elite Dangerous Horizons Announced Aug 5, 2015, 13:21 Tumbler
You can buy the expansion content for 50 or if you're a new user just the expansion for 60 which includes the base game.

Sounds good to me as a new user but if I'd purchased the original game I think I'd feel pretty pissed about them asking for another $50.

This sounds a lot like the Destiny plan as well. You can pay $50 for the newest expansion coming next month but a new user pays $60 and gets everything they've released up to this point plus the new expansion... (Also a niche game)


Something to consider though is this is still a niche game and the DCS series puts out new content in the form of new planes often and charge something like $40+ for a prepurchase and I think $50 at release?

I'm looking forward to Getting into Elite dangerous finally with this update. It will be interesting to see what happens when Elite and No Man's sky are both offering something similar and maybe those companies can start competing and pushing down prices.

Hell, DCS would be smart to build a space fighter module, just to try and grab some of this space sim surge. That CCP game should be coming in the near future, Valkerie, going to be a lot of choices for a space simmer to spend money on soon. Maybe even...battle- (HUUUURGGEHH) sorry I just threw up a little. Maybe not that one so much.

Edit: Ugh, just bought Elite Dangerous Horizons, $63 after conversion via paypal... ugh, haven't paid that much for a game in a while.

All I will bother saying is, how I don't like well known actors being in games. They're not needed and don't do anything but jack up the cost in an insane way compared to any benefit, to the game.

What costs are being jacked up? The DLC still seems about the same price as before, the game retails for $60. The gold edition was on sale for $40 the other day and that comes with the first dlc pack I think, I finally bought it just so I have something to play on my ps4.

I thought one of the major features in LA Noir, for example, was being able to have real faces show up in game, I think having real actors used in games is a good thing.

Loving rocket league on the PS4. I'm tempted to buy it on the PC as well. I caught the end of the ESL NA Rocket League tournament yesterday, holy cow, those guys are much better than I am.

I'm having a tough time guiding my car in the air but those guys do it almost with ease.

So if 40 players is just too much for you then you can play in games with 20 players on special maps. (smaller) They seem to be going in the wrong direction.

I'd heard someone suggest these were not tiny recreational drones, these might have been heavy duty commercial drones that a news station might put up there.

It seems to make a lot of sense that we'll see drones replace traffic helicopters in the near future. It can't be more expensive to operate a drone versus a helicopter. Keeping the airspace organized and safe will be a real challenge though...

Are there any regulations that limit remote control helicopter ranges and size? The smaller drones don't seem a lot different than remote control helicopters, the mounted camera could be on a helo pretty easy but remote control planes and helo's seem to very a very short range in most cases.

I wonder if that is regulated or if there just hasn't been a demand to go further until now.

It annoys me that these guys keep making DLC for CoH2. I want them to make something else. Somethink I like and want to spend money on. Like Dawn of War 3. Or Space Marine 2. Or anything but CoH.

Was hoping sprint offered a Wifi Router that you can hook up to their Service and use the unlimited plan. Sadly no. If you want to use something with Ethernet ports like that or even just a wifi hotspot device you can only buy limited planes. $110 for 30GB I think is the largest chunk.

My internet service, 3mb/s DSL via ATT, is so frustratingly slow I'm tempted to buy a sprint phone with an unlimited plan and turn the wifi hotspot feature on.

We were using a verizon Wifi Hotspot provided by my wife's employer for a few months because somehow it'd been setup as an unlimited plan. That was fantastic! 70-80mb/s download speeds. Then someone figured out it wasn't supposed to be unlimited and shut it off. And the bill was something like $2500 for 300 gb of data. Now it's a 1gb / month plan...

Would be nice if one of these cell carriers started offering a real data solution for dedicated home networks. All this high priced metered internet is bullshit.

I'd love it if that ATT merger they talked about ended up laying fiber to my house but since I'm already at the outskirts of DSL territory and can only get 3mbs I don't see them spending the money to run fiber to me... Grumble grumble.

Anyone playing this game a lot. I tried playing a few times thus week and it seems like there us only a dozen people playing it. The combat is ok but progression on those starting ships isn't any fun. In particular the upgrades you can choose seem to be mostly cosmetic? The game play feels repetitive and too simple.

Does it get better when u get into ships in the tech tree? Nit impressed with the starter ships.

It doesn't feel like the fans of the game are upset at this point. This feels like the people outside have concluded that now is the time they should be showing results and so if things are still in development then that is a big problem.

Thank you for your concern. We'll see what ends up coming out eventually.

Star Citizen 'may' come out next month just like I 'may' win the lottery. I'd bet on the latter.

I'll take your money, I mean bet! I'll take that bet!
