These reviews are ridiculous! For example:

https://www.pcgamer.com/core-i9-9900k-review/

"INTEL CORE I9-9900K IS THE NEW CHAMPION OF THE CONSUMER CPU WORLD"

First item in the AGAINST column is "High price for minor gains." Seriously?! Then it's not the new champion of consumer CPU world. It's the new champion for enthusiast and hobby builders. Such dishonesty.

Silly me, I thought they were going to show different physics models for the space ships.

It's a space fantasy game so you would expect light fighters to handle differently than large bulk cruisers, even in "zero G" space.

For that you want this panel. In short, the devs added in-game tools to quickly tune values for all ships thereby providing more realistic handling and inertia in space and on planets.

That's pretty sweet at the 10 minute mark where they show the canned tarp versus the dynamic tarp interacting with the wind entity.

Yup. I think the more impressive part is the real layered clothing as seen on the walking Tusken Raider at the end. There are many applications for that tech throughout the game from small decorations all the way up to core gameplay mechanics (e.g., mission involves hiding under a tarp to spy on a group of mercs, but have to be careful not to move the tarp else risk alerting the mercs).

Admiral Ackbar? It's a tarp!

Passing. An 18% gain isn't worth $500 plus the cost of a new mobo.

26% gain between 1080TI and 2080TI.

Disappointing new gen.

Backed for $115 for the Origin 325A and SQ42. Did it primarily because of Derek Smart's spiteful nature towards the project and secondarily because I have a computer now capable of playing it relatively smoothly in 4K. I thought even he would be impressed by this trailer's tech and progress. Instead, what I see is a person hell-bent on bringing it down no matter what. I don't trust Chris, and I continue to have my doubts. However, I do want to see the project launch, and I'm not so rigid that I refuse to back it today. If the project fails, this time I'm out a hundred bucks and ONLY that much.

Yes. Most of them. Performance is considerably improved.

For 1080Ti owners the only real upgrade is the expensive as fuck RTX 2080Ti.

Yup. I'll buy better RAM and CPU. I have a I7-8700. The "K" variant is rank #1 based on user reviews. I may buy another 1080TI if prices drop into the $300-$400 range. A 1080TI SLI had noticeable frame rate improvements.

Enjoying Odyssey, but the size of the map is daunting. At 10 hours in, I feel like I've hardly put a dent in it. Hell, it took me 4 hours to get to the title screen (once you leave the first island).

Don't think of the entire map. Only focus on the objective you're on.

I guess apathy is a form of "No." It looks like the crowdfunding success of Star Citizen forced EA to see enough value in the IP to eventually sell it to Piranha Games, who decided not to use it and instead went in another direction that bombed hard.

There's something wrong with all your links I can't put my finger on. Here, I fixed them:

Transvere Announced
Could have been Wing Commander Online
Funding reworked
Folds


I confess the coffee maker at work was broken.

Now imagine if this was new wing commander game within the well established wing commander universe, man IMAGINE.... sigh but instead we got this paint drying experience.

Unfortunately, EA said no to Chris when he asked for the WC license. That's why he went with Star Citizen / SQ42.

Do you have source if possible? At the very least he could have pushed the issue once they got the big bucks early on. I am sure EA would come to terms eventually, not like EA doing much with it anyways.
