News Comments > Star Citizen Refund Refusals
12. Re: Star Citizen Refund Refusals Jul 15, 2018, 14:44 FloorPie
 
This whole story is just so pathetic now. They've been getting some good press lately with the newest 3.0 patch or whatever. I've seen several streamers praising it or couching it as flawed but fun with friends aka don't take it too seriously because its buggy as hell.

Edit. If true, this is great, from the reddit thread:

"Also on the lulzy record, they did say it was like donating to build a church... but dont you dare call it a cult."

So, you're donating to the building of the Church of Roberts Space Industries.

A video game writer, a mmo writer no less, can't take some tame criticism from a rando youtuber and the white knights ride out to the rescue of m'lady.

Devs get all kinds of lame advice they wisely ignore. They also get all kinds of advice they should probably listen to but don't. Film at 11.

"depicting a frightening future when music consists of John Denver covers"

Its not a bad cover, doesn't beat the original though. Take me home, country roads, away from battle royales.

Also, never ever get out of the car.

My guess would be they went with a now 2+ year old i5 as an easy catchall benchmark for i5's down to even the 2500k (of 2011 era). Though, for BF games lately they favor more cores so, might want the speed boost of anything from 2015 onward.

Trailer gave me whiplash but a good laugh with the call for a medic bit. Best line I've seen about it has been: "Tracer's grandma had a robot arm?"

I favor GOG these days for single player games. Why be locked into DRM via steam for single player? The only big downside I see for single or multiplayer games on GOG is patches can show up slower for some games than on Steam.

SciFi setting is perfect for DLC'o'rama piecemeal deliveries, of course. They can just keep adding planet after planet until the udders are dry.

Good to know we can always count on you Mr. Ray of Sunshine! Sunny

Is he wrong though? Its Paradox publishing it.

I don't think Let's Plays should be allowed on these major sites (unless the company specifically allows it). It's like allowing someone to upload a movie to on Youtube and it's ok because they provide some commentary periodically. Gameplay is only one part of a game's value but that's the only part that you miss out on from watching a Let's Play.

I agree, but most devs/pubs encourage it as a form of free advertising. Nintendo is the only company I can think of that actively fights against this sort of thing, and people hate them for it, but it's probably necessary in order to maintain all the same IP rights they have now. Streaming clearly does not fall under fair use, and it makes you wonder if allowing it might set precedent for future changes in related laws that result in companies losing control of their properties.

Thats a battle companies will lose and deservedly so. Let's plays and streaming have gotten me to buy more games than not. Many of which I would have waited till the inevitable 1,3,6, 12 month sale for 50%+ off. I can actually see gameplay first hand and not rely on written word and a few screenshots. Nintendo's argument would be more tolerable if they weren't basically making the "content creators" their slaves. Even just 2-3 years ago they had a better argument when ad revenue was still up and clearly overhyped and not worth what companies paid for it. Now with ad revenue down on youtube especially it makes even less sense. People are watching streamers for what they bring personality wise (or cleavage) in playing/demo'ing a game.

Some games I will watch but have little interest in actually playing like Sea of thieves. It was fun to watch for a month especially with roleplayers haming it up but mostly boring now.

If we're going to treat streaming games under fair use like tv shows/movies and live broadcasts, games better be a hell of a lot cheaper and I don't mean Free to play with cosmetic items for money and surely not PTW either.

Bah, I bought in, it looked like too much fun. I've been a sucker for the ubi games the past 3 years now.

Runs 51-73 fps on high settings at 1080p (in game benchmark) on a fx 8350 with a RX 480 8gb gpu. Havent had a chance to run it on the i7 with nvidia yet.

Good to see GTAV up there. Happy to see those guys are doing well.
GTAV is the new Skyrim.
Yeah, that's an understatement. I just bought Apocalypse and I'm determined to get into the late game... something I have not been able to do yet. I feel like there's a good game here, but I'm not seeing it. My biggest problem is comparing everything I do to Distant Worlds and end up coming out frustrated.

There is a lot of drama over 2.0 and the changes paradox has made to the game. They killed the other forms of FTL, Warp and Wormholes. It is all hyperspace lanes. I'm not a huge fan of this but it is workable for the moment especially since they've fixed how borders worked. It used to be based on cultural influence. There are a lot of bugs though. So far the game has lost some of its charm for me.

Dear republicans,,MAYBE ITS THE FUCKING GUN ,

No, if its the gun then vidya games are just as much to blame.

Perhaps it is our culture overall? Maybe SSRI type drugs? Nah. Blame the guns, video games, movies, or music.

While this can account for many cases of getting shot just after entering cover, it doesn't explain headshots through mountains with shotguns.

Every indie game nowadays has to be about sexual identity.

I miss when indie games were just about shooting monsters and walking through dungeons.

If you play games to learn about the world around you, then you need to get out more. You can learn about LGBTQ issues anywhere in the real world, you don't need a game. I think these folks are all shut-ins that need a game to tell them about life.

Me? I play games to get away from all the life i'm over-exposed to on a daily basis.

Or maybe the games you want are still out there, only now there's choice for more people, and more people see themselves represented in their game options than before.

I don't get why some people expect every single game to be tailored to their desires.

Yet, some groups are forcing everyone else to tailor their entertainment to satisfy that group's personal desires. If you don't then you're a horrible horrible person. See the Kingdom Come: Delieverance dramas for example. "You need Moors in your 1400s Bohemian game you bigot!"

This game looks gay in all the meanings of that word. I'd not really care if we didn't have people demanding transgender were-dragonkin romances in every silly bioware type (nerd love simulator) game. Heh, I almost yearn for the day when the big scandal was romancing Jahiera in Baldurs Gate just after her husband dies.

Its truly a crazy world when I'm defending Derek Smart but yeah... there it is.

If only they had started out smartly with Squadron 42 first, make a good space sim game and then moved on to star citizen. Just like Starlancer and Freelancer. Would've been the better route given all the shenanigans that wen on with Freelancer's development.

I'm as liberal as they come, but I have questions about marches and protests.

Would the peace marches have gotten far without the National Guard to back them up? Is a march peaceful if it has an armed military escort? Hence.. there is a reactive threat of potential violence. Would the marches have been as successful without federal intervention?

Magic 8-ball says: Probably not.

2027 just might be an interesting year.

The Vista article summed up in three words:
Microsoft badly misjudged
And it still holds true today.

Hows so?

The only major complaints I saw that were real were things like driver support and people buying woefully under requirement laptops from shifty OEMs. Those could just as easily have been made about XP when it came out. I was never in love with Vista, but it worked just fine.

Eh, it was a new OS, with lots of new ways of doing things leading to many teething problems. Toss in OEM's who were cheap bastards that wouldn't update drivers (printer companies and say creative soundblaster cards) and you have a mess. Much like win8 (tablet metro UI) and now 10 (hey who needs a QA team? just send out forced beta patches).

The problem with "woefully under requirement" laptops etc.. was the stickers with "designed for windows xp, windows vista compatible" and associated marketing campaigns. The difference between 98/ME/2k to XP was not as bad as it was from XP to Vista. You had systems coming out with 512mb of ram, 1gb tops (256mb was common even in higher end machines just a year earlier) that could not run vista which needed an absolute 1gb minimum. It was all OEMs and MS enabling it. They both fucked themselves over that.

Looking on the Steam forums, this game does not award experience per kill, but per daily achievements, which are capped( X per day, then you're done for the day).

Hard pass on any games with this sort of mechanic.

I should go back and finish the Van Helsing trilogy though, I liked the first one.

Yeah, I was hyped and almost bought into it a couple of months ago but after reading reviews, the XP system does not look like fun.
