In some games, players who are willing to pay for special items or downloadable content may be able to gain a significant advantage over those playing for free who, for example, would otherwise need to spend time progressing in order to unlock said items. Such games are called "pay-to-win" or "p2w" by critics.

The fact that they took 50 people at a station, put them in various ships, some holding like 20 and flew them to another planet for Battlefield-like combat, all without loading screens is crazy impressive technically, regardless of the latency.

Are you sure?

I mean, the video cuts to different perspectives like every 5 seconds... you aren't seeing this from perspective of a single player... loading screens could have been easily edited out.

Not claiming they were edited out for sure, given RSI goals... but it is hard to tell from that video.

I kissed my $20 (or was it $25?... I can't even remember anymore) good bye a long time ago.

Unfortunately, that is the risk you take with a kickstarter game.

If you pledged a shitload and bought a bunch of ships... well... you're a dumbass.

Free speech doesn't mean there aren't repercussions to being a closeminded dirtbag.
In what sense, then, is the speech free?

In the sense that the government can't fucking arrest you for being a closeminded dirtbag.

It does not mean everybody else has to put up with you being a closeminded dirtbag.

While I agree with that... I also don't agree with "Internet Mob Justice". (Not saying that this particular case was that). Often someone slips with something slightly offensive on the Internet... whether it be in poor taste or just an off "joke" and ends up losing a career over it.

There has to be some balance, even if one is being a dumbass.

What is with the weird obsession with this chick.. she got her ass kicked in real fights multiple times. Every time i see her on a commercial I'm like.. WTF?? why is this chick on this commercial she sucks.

So she is in fake wrestling now.. WHO CARES!

I'd say that any "obsession" was when she was undefeated (not that I personally thought she was "all that", but it was a fairly large accomplishment). Now that she got beaten more than once and then left UFC to not get beaten anymore... her fame has declined significantly.

She's just trying to maintain a post-defeat career.

Wow, so many haters. More competition sounds good to me.

Uh... it is not really competition... The purpose is to get China-developed games into the U.S.

That said... if you think the data-slurping from Steam, Origin, Uplay, etc. are intrusive... one can only imagine what the "WeGame" client will slurp up.

Heck... just look at the news regarding Visio and Samsung smart TVs... and that's Korea.... not even China.

Those things are crack, man, even if you're the Dark Lord.

Depends... I'm completely burned out on MMO's and probably won't ever put a dime into one again. Sick and tired of goal posts moving, complete rule changes, and nerfs.

That said, in general, it has been a fun ride over the years though... starting with MUDs in the mid 90's.

Stefanos Loukakos, who runs Messenger’s ad business, says he’s aware of this, and the company will monitor user behavior to determine if these ads turn people off.

“Top priority for us is user experience,” he said from a beachside cabana at the Cannes Lions advertising festival on Tuesday. “So we don’t know yet [if these will work]. However, signs until now, when we tested basic ads, didn’t show any changes with how people used the platform or how many messages they send.”

Uh... OF COURSE this will turn people off. What a dumb fscking statement. User experience is obviously NOT top priority.

Glad I don't use social networking at all. Still pissed that they accumulate my data without my permission, even though I'm not a user.

Honestly, I didn't know there was one. I thought the whole series was console only.

That said, I've been wanting a modern sim that has F22s and F35s... even if it's arcade-ish. As long as there is a cockpit mode.

What I'd really like is a modern F-22 TAW.

How many times has that been said? Believe it when it is reported.

Yeah... unfortunately it's always some "Bethesda Tweaked" version of the same ol' crappy NetImmerse / Gamebryo engine.... and they always claim it's a "new engine", which is total BS.

(Although Skyrim isn't in the list of Gamebryo credits... the mods still use NIFs (Net Immerse Files)

Whats wrong with the visual style? I backed this and have been playing it off an on, but also trying to avoid playing it to much because I want to enjoy it once its completed. its actually a pretty good game. Still needs a lot of work, but its definitely got the potential.

I don't like the style either... but UU1 is still my #1 favorite RPG to this day... so I will still buy this.

As for what's wrong with it... it looks like claymation. I'd rather they had gone with a more realistic style... even if it was dated by today's standards. UE3 or Original Crytek (Far Cry 1) detail would have been fine.
