but that beats the heck out of the Julius Caesar treatment, don't you think?

Is that when a trusted friend (let's call him Brute) betrays you by literally stabbing you in the back with a pocket knife he calls Caesar?

similarities were "unequivocal".

Star Citizen is using a modified Cry Engine and not Unity though.

I know. That was the comparison. Rockstar doesn't use off-the-shelf game engines to create their AAA titles. They create their own from scratch. They do that because they know the scope of game they wish to create. Chris has admitted in numerous interviews that he did not know the scope of Star Citizen and only increased its scope based on the money coming in. That's the difference between the Rockstars, CD Projekt Reds and Bethesdas of the world... and CIG.

Mordecai Walfish wrote on Mar 15, 2016, 17:58:
With the scale of what they're trying to do vs any other cry engine game, I bet a fair chunk of the budget is going towards engine modification, however.

Definitely. Even if CIG by some miracle was able to modify CryEngine to achieve all their goals they will NEVER recoup their costs because they are not going to make additional games with it, and I don't believe they would ever be able to license it because most of foundation is owned by CryTek. This is precisely why Rockstar, CD Projekt Red, iD, Bethesda and other development studios thrive. They spend a large sum developing their own engines for specific needs, and then reuse those engines many times over for future games. They also license the engine out to other studios or other studios within their family of companies.

To put the amount of money they have for the development for this game in perspective, GTA IV cost a little over 100 million to make back in 2007 (a record at the time for the most expensive game development cost), with a significantly older engine and lower fidelity than what is being aimed for in SC. Not to mention the difference in scope between the two titles.

To put things even more in perspective, Rockstar didn't use the Unity engine to create GTA4. They built their own engine from the beginning to handle their specific needs. The RAGE engine went on to power nearly a dozen games including GTA5. So Rockstar got their money back multiple times over for engine development costs.

The hardware should NEVER be tethered to the device, the device should ALWAYS be tethered to the hardware otherwise this is going to be a very expensive out-dated tech the moment it hits market.

$100 million would be a long time for many sensible studios. This one? Not so much the way they are throwing it away (such as the sub studios/offices they opened in other locations, and then closed again), or the expensive voice acting, etc.

They're doing it for the fidelatay and immershuns. You just don't know!

Donald Trump has a realistic shot at being the President of the United States.

Something seriously wrong with this world.

Can we all agree not to talk politics on a video game site?

Maybe because there's already a Descent reboot that's actually authorized by the owners of the Descent franchise.

Edit: Overload "Successfully raised $306,537 USD with 4,896 backers". Not sure what you're complaining about.

It's getting better...but still not really playable. I did one of the EVA missions, but my ship freaked out on me when I tried to get back inside. It started spinning when I bumped into it...then I started spinning...then the universe exploded resulting in a crash to desktop.

Don't you hate when the universe explodes. I know I do.

Rosie Forbes: Mine are bigger.

Rosie Forbes: Better than sex.

Tom Clancy's The Division debuts at number on the GfK Chart-Track top 30 chart of bestselling PC games in the U.K.

Stephen, I think that sentence is missing the critical piece of information. What place did The Division debut at?
