Hey, don't worry. We understand if people are apprehensive that Xen will never see the light of day. I personally feel our track record shows that you guys can trust us, but we totally get it if some people feel differently.

That's the beauty of Early Access. You can wait until the game is in a place where you want to buy it, before you buy it. For you, that place will be when we add Xen, and that's totally fine! Call it motivation for us, if you will.

We will certainly release Xen, and it will be amazing. But we know not everyone will trust our word alone, and that's completely fine. Wait for time to prove our integrity!

Fantastic! Thank you!

If they choose to post status monthly or every couple months, towards their target date of Xen, I'd definitely go for early access.

Finally!

I hope they will consider some sort of monthly status, so we won't be surprised if they don't hit their target.

I don't have to follow the game every minute to have interest.

I am only interested in the full game (I never downloaded the mod, because I'm waiting for Xen)

As far as deadlines... not saying they should have any. I'm talking like monthly status reports...3 levels of Xen at 50%, 2 levels@ 25%, rest at 0%.... something. Anything to SEE progress... instead of bullshit about the linux port and stupid little things they fixed in the pre-Xen levels.

Without knowing their progression... I choose not to support their project at this time. Especially since it's been many years since the Xen levels haven't been done. That's like spending thousands on virtual ships for Star Citizen. Fucking Stupid.

So... since I don't check nearly as often as you do, every once in a while when a news bit comes out, I check... and it's the same no real info BS. It doesn't matter if the "game" you are claiming only came out in 2015... they said Xen levels were coming in 2012. Over 4 years ago. Instead they chose to fuck around with a stand alone re-write, tout a linux port, etc. instead of finishing the fucking game.

Like I said... I like what they are doing... I just don't like how they are going about it.

Well... I don't follow you. I was looking on the Steam forums for a Xen update after today's blues news bit, and I saw a few of your posts.

Also, I don't follow the game. For the precise reason that they don't ever give out relevant info on status, other than once in a blue moon.

As for the mod being different than the early access game. I don't give a fuck. They are the ones that promised Xen levels over 4 years ago, and have not delivered. Going early access, one can even see posts by folks thinking that the Xen levels would be "soon"... and it's been over a year for that, with no status.

Since your vocabulary on this topic seems to be nothing more than slinging insults, I think it is well proven whom is the "emotional one" of this topic, that you seem to think that you are the sole expert on, and the only one that can have a valid opinion.

...but at least don't comment like a slobbering clueless dolt....

... you seem to have a childish emotional attitude towards it.

So I'm a dolt for only settling for the full remake that has been promised for what... around 10 years? And 4+ years since the unfinished release? I'm expected to wait possibly another 10 years for them to get off their ass to finish it? Without any status?

I like what they accomplished.

I don't like the way they go about it. "When it's done" Doesn't work for an indie group wanting money up front. There's no trust there, with barely any track record. Hell... I hate it when the big boys do that shit. But these guys take forever and a day.

As for calling me childish about their "UPDATE"... there's ZERO info about Xen.... so no... that's NOT an update about finishing the fucking game.

I've seen your posts on the Steam forums regarding this. I don't know what stake you have with these folks... but you are definitely a rabbid fanboi of this title. So we can all definitely take your insults with a huge grain of salt.

Not getting a dime out of me until they finish Xen, then I will be happy to pay full price.

This bullshit has gone on way too long for an unfinished re-creation, it's been over 4 years since the "mod release" (September 2012). They also have the gaul to charge money without regular updates on Xen status (which I would expect for paying for early access.), and work on / release other things besides Xen.

Finish the fucking game before you charge. Or at least post regular update status for "early access". Not gonna spend money on something that should have been completed long ago on the hope I get the rest of the game in 10 years.

Well... if they can pull off a Minority Report interface with HoloLens... that's about the only thing that would be really innovative from them in a long time.

But I'm sure it will have twice the datamining of Windows 10.

News Comments > Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies
37. Re: Bethesda Holding Back Review Copies Oct 26, 2016, 11:05 wtf_man
 
Well... this pretty much doesn't affect me. I stopped doing pre-orders or day 1 purchases a long time ago. I actually prefer mini reviews after a patch or two, although I still read the release reviews. That gives me a great perspective on whether to purchase a full price for a job well done, wait for a good sale and more patches, or pass on the game entirely.

I guess the bright side to this is that nobody can accuse Bethesda of bribing a journalist with an extra early copy if everyone can only get it 1 day in advance.

If you all read the article "The PS4 Pro is basically two PS4 chips, using one for old games and both for Pro enhancements", you would know that the extra 1GB is Actually DDR3 to keep apps tasking in the background and freeing up an extra gig of DDR5 for the games.

Also, Normal games run on 1 GPU near the same stats as the original PS4, and the Pro games will run basically on 2 GPUs. (Basically Cross-fire without the need for more GDDR5, since the unit already has 8GB)

While it's not a mind blowing leap in performance, it's an interesting way to keep backwards compatibility with current PS4 games, make newer higher res "pro" games, and keep the cost down. (without going to a new generation of console.)

What Burrito said. LXDE is closer to a WIndows Desktop.

Or you could just install the LUBUBTU Distro: Lubuntu

Personally I run Mint w/Cinnamon Desktop, but again... that's not lightweight for a Raspberry Pi.

Does anyone even want this game?

Not really... I probably enjoyed the first game more than most (On sale... patched up... low expectations after all the rants). But I don't see myself getting this one.

Heck... this is already happening in streaming.

I'm going to dump Netflix as soon as the wife is done with the current series she is watching, and pick up the Motor Trend Channel on Amazon Prime, for $5 a month.

Cut the cord in 2007... and things like this are just futher nails in the "cable / satellite tv coffin".

Not the apocalypse. That would require something to happen. It's more like they promise the apocalypse, but only manage to break a few dishes instead.

Definitely a reason NOT to buy a Nissan!

It does at least look like a new level. I was half worried they would just send you back to the same Palisade bank that you'd already been in (likely twice.)


From what I read on other sites... it's a Headquarters... not the bank. Totally separate building in old Pargue.

Mismanaged? Absolutely.

Will they pull off a decent game? Who knows.

Will I ever give them more than my original $30 backing? Nope.

Do I care if it's shit? I only care about Squadron42... if it's a decent Wing Commander-like game, I'll be satisfied.

All they have to do is start helping game devs push for DX12-only titles, that's the only reason why most people would care.

If I only used my computer for e-mail, surfing the web etc. as long as it was secure, updated, and still supported, I wouldn't want to stop using Win7.

Give me the actual benefits of a bigger FPS bump in gaming however from switching to Win10, then start actually making DX12 relevant, and it's only a matter of time before the gamers at least switch over.

Unfortunately, DX12 isn't that much of a performance boost... especially for nVidia. Vulkan seems to be the way to go, especially since it is cross-platform. (Linux (PS4), and Android)

Which means Windows 7 is still good enough.

It's a whole new "DX vs OpenGL" battle... and I think DX will lose this time.

I can't wait to see this magical MS console that not only renders every game at 4K, but also doesn't cause it's target group to have sticker shock...


...and forces some ridiculous extra hardware (like Kinect... probably a shitty MS produced VR headset), and forces a paywall to use streaming apps like Netflix, etc.
