"See that crater over there? The entirety of Skyrim would fit inside that crater."

Well, yeah, because Skyrim is intentionally compressed to allow players to quickly traverse to get to where they're going and discover places quickly. It respects the player's time. And even then, it's possible to spend 100s of hours playing Skyrim.

Watched another 30m. You have to admit, what they've built looks amazing. Thing is, this is one of a dozen locations in the first system, which is unfinished, and the PU is supposed to have a 100 fully fleshed out systems. At this rate, it won't be done until the year 2100.

The other thing: this game does not respect the player's time. All that getting up, suiting up, walking, sitting down, parking, etc. etc. is going to get old really quickly. People are going to get tired of taking 45 mins to set up their mission. They're going to want get a group together in a few minutes and start the mission.

This game is still a thing?

It's going to be the best FPS ever, which I know is your thing.

Here's a brief video

trailer

Is it just me, or do graphics look a step down from previous games?

Also, it sounds like they're doing some cool stuff with the AI and economy to make the galaxy feel more alive.

"You can fly every ship! You can fly every ship!" I guess they got the message.

Got excited until I read "X4 online".

Watched through parts of the video, and... eh. They're still totally hung up on that whole "You can walk on stations!" thing, apparently having forgotten that they did that in Rebirth and it was the most boring shit imaginable.

I blame Star Citizen for that.

But thank god they have some lips moving or something in the space combat game, AMIRITE?

I watched a bit of the stream yesterday, holy crap what a disaster.

It looks like shit, ran like shit, and the "gameplay" is clearly completely absent. No systems looked to be working, really at all. Given all this time and money, I really hope he's enjoying the hookers and blow.

Not to mention the internet connection required to run FOIP.

It's telling they're going with "X4." They're signalling they're going to continue in the vein of X3 after Rebirth.

Derek Smart went all psychotic on it. I seriously don't know what drives him or his hatred, but it is quite fascinating.

I watched some of the presentation last night and when CR described the little they added since last year, I just sighed. They haven't even finished a single system yet.

They added real time facials animation system, so there is no delay, the game is just not feature complete yet. Don't rush it, it is all good if my grandgrandgrandgrandchildren can play the beta.

Hilarious!

FOIP, as if the bandwidth requirements weren't already high enough. Still cool feature. Like you say, in 20 years.

Not sure you can really post "crickets" when a post has only been up for 18 minutes.

If past trends are any indication, this thread will have the most comments over the weekend.

Meh, Amazon's approach here is age-old: take a loss on the baby kale to get people to the store and make the loss up with higher prices on other things.

But the good thing about Secret Service Protection for president Fuckface Von Clownstick is that it goes on in perpetuity, thanks President Obama!

Could we make an exception in Trump's case?

Also, the dude does not look healthy. Odds are even he doesn't live out his presidency.

Nex Machina for $12 (11.99) is entirely worth it, if you were at all a fan of Smash TV or Robotron style games. It's awesome at that price.

Agreed. It's a surprising kick in the ass at any level above easy, but it's oh so deliciously well made.

I get the urge to throw my controller out the window just by watching the video.

I just don't have the reflexes for that kind of game any longer.

$30K for makeup is nothing. Trump's vacationing and golfing have broken the Secret Service budget. For example, the USSS has spent $60K just on golf cart rentals to guard Trump when he hits the links.

I would say HL3 confirmed, but we all know that's never going to happen. There's just no ROI in single player campaigns. Valve is sadly now all about franchises it can milk forever.

Maybe if you would have DELIVERED the standard of polish the previous Mass Effect games had then MAYBE it would have gotten a better reception?
