News Comments > Star Citizen Refund Refusals

So it's pay2win. Gotcha.

So its like paying to get Darth Vader in battlefront while everyone else has to grind, and then when you die you respawn for nothing, but people who just bought the game and grinded to get their favorite hero will have to grind even more just to get him to respawn every time. Sounds fair.

And this has been known for like 5+ years right? Why have I not heard one peep about how this obvious pay2win mechanic that has raised $200m is utterly breaking the game for everyone who doesn't pay?
That's because Star Citizen doesn't have a traditional 'win' mechanic. For some people that will be killing lots of people; for others it will be mining the most resources; some will opt for exploration; others will focus on FPS combat. If somebody spends $400 on a mining ship like the Reclaimer then that doesn't allow them to 'win' against someone looking to be the best dogfighter.

There's also the fact that the larger ships require multiple crew members and cooperation. The largest combat ship, for instance, is the Javellin and it costs $2,500. Yet to use it properly you'll need a crew of around twenty people. Without that you won't be able to man the weapons or protect against intruders. If some rich gamer throws money at the game and tries to play solo then they'll find themselves immediately under attack and unable to defend themselves.

The majority of the ships players encounter will be NPCs, as the ratio will be 90 NPCs for every 10 players. Difficulty for those encounters will be adjusted based upon player preference and ship. Encountering other players who pose a threat is actually part of the gameplay - you can't win every battle so you'll have to choose which you run away from. Most hardcore backers aren't going to spend tens of thousands of dollars on ships only to chase after new players in starter ships.

Really it comes down to how the final game plays and whether it is enjoyable and rewarding or a grindfest. For now it's all speculation. Right now there are lots of larger ships already in-game and they only make the experience more varied and rewarding rather than feeling like unfair competition - I love taking down some of the bigger ship. But that may all change for the worse come release. We shall see.

i was super let down by this game. aliens was one of the hallmarks of my childhood, and as an adult little seemed as thrilling as playing a colonial marine in co-op mode with a bunch of other aliens fans, creeping around the dark with just the motion detector beeping at us to tell us we're all about to die. how could they have screwed up such a simple idea...
I picked it up super cheap after avoiding it during the initial shitstorm. For what it's worth I had fun with the co-op mode, though part of that enjoyment came from laughing at the horrendous bugs.

But there really is no excusing the bait-and-switch, nor the outsourcing of nearly the entire game. Gearbox used their name to market the work of inferior developers and did less than the bare minimum for a major movie franchise tie-in. And the way Randy Pitchford blatantly lied to gamers is inexcusable and has forever ruined his reputation.

This whole thing is a bit of a mess. Her comments were clearly unacceptable, especially framing the issue around gender. Perhaps she has been the victim of hateful comments because of her gender but the post she was responding to had nothing to do with that. It's hard to know exactly what she has to deal with on a daily basis and maybe her anger was misdirected, though that doesn't excuse it.

But there was also a campaign on Reddit to hijack the situation and use that to target other devs to get them fired. There are a lot of misogynists who harass female developers and want to push their own agenda. Firing her and her coworker only empowers trolls and draws more attention to a matter that would have likely only blown over anyway.

At the end of the day if one's job is interacting with the community and one chooses to antagonise it then one only has oneself to blame.

Why would I need to? The game only cost $30 on Kickstarter and that entitles everyone to all of the content in-game; it's been available for as little as $20 during previous anniversary sales. In fact I only backed for $30 initially, as I wanted to look at the progress before committing to anything extra. Paying anything more is only to support the game. In fact didn't you spend a large amount on the game then go crying for a refund?

Hehe, good memory. That was nearly three years ago now. I went for something a bit more conventional for CitizenCon last year: here. Over the past year I managed to meet the developers at Gamescom in Cologne, CitizenCon in Frankfurt and BritizenCon in Manchester. It's always a great atmosphere.

Tipsy McStagger wrote on Jun 29, 2018, 18:24:
When the resident Star Citizen fanboy isn't defending the game... we know something is seriously wrong.
I've been critical of numerous aspects of the development. My post history reflects that. The delays to Object Container Streaming and Network Bind Culling have limited the content available and server performance. At least they've now committed to quarterly releases and so far they've hit them all. The big features are due in the 3.3 patch for late September, though it remains to be seen if CIG can deliver on time. If they can't get planets--rather than the moons we have currently--then you'll hear a backlash from the community.

I still believe that the end result will be one of the most replayable and rewarding PC games out there. Some of the technology already is incredible and only getting better. But it's going to take a long time to get there.

- God that engine is an unoptimized piece of shit. They have an FPS counter going when the marine is walking through literally an empty room with no textures etc, and it's barely breaking 40fps. :\

The low poly 'soldier' in a low poly room with basic textures who can barely walk without crashing the framerate is hilarious to me. Ooh, you can rotate his hand! This is what 6 years and $180 million gets us?
That's from the editor, which always runs much slower. With the latest 3.2 patch I've been running at up to 90fps and currently most of the performance issues are server related. Not to mention the Vulkan renderer hasn't been added, which should improve performance a lot.

As for development, the issue for me is transparency. We were told we were going to get a S42 presentation back in 2016 and apparently it was nearly ready. Then we saw nothing of it until late 2017 after a media blackout and it really didn't show much, other than the excellent acting performances. We were then promised a schedule and even the SCHEDULE has been delayed for years.

When you see a video like this and they're talking about still fleshing out the behaviour and look of the main opponent in the game it hardly gives people hope. To claim that the game is so close to being finished that they can't show much is laughable.

What's needed for Squadron 42 is a roadmap like we have with Star Citizen. Things may get delayed but at least we know what needs to be done and when it's currently expected. The lack of communication regarding Squadron 42 is unacceptable.

News Comments > Steam Opening the Gates
64. Re: Steam Opening the Gates Jun 8, 2018, 06:29 theyarecomingforyou
 
I've given up using the Steam Store because of how much dross there is. Finding quality titles is extremely difficult and the entire experience has become a chore. I remember being excited at each sale and constantly checking the Coming Soon tab but now I pretty much only get games on Steam from the Humble Bundle or via third-party websites like CDKeys.

Opening the floodgates is only going to further reduce quality. Steam should have two sections: Steam Prime and Steam Indie. And Steam Indie should still have quality control. Turning Steam into a libertarian wetdream only makes it a crappy experience for the majority of users.

Well, at least that's not something you have to worry about given how unpopular your games are. It just sounds like you're jealous.

Not a single person in here has touched on the specific "copied" aspects that are likely to come up in the case.

Beyond the 100 player, large map, random looting, last-man-standing, BR genre...

-map displaying upcoming in-bounds "circle" and shrinking out-of-bounds circle
PUBG: https://i.imgur.com/7kUEMW6.jpg
Fortnite: https://i.imgur.com/T90ALL2.jpg
when in the out of bounds circle the player takes increasing damage depending on the game phase

-players are flown over the map in a randomized straight line on a plane (flying bus in Fortnite), they then parachute out and guide themselves to the ground
PUBG: https://i.imgur.com/Am6pLm9.png
Fortnite: https://i.imgur.com/bgz3Ex6.jpg
PUBG: https://i.imgur.com/1CCcGZi.jpg
Fortnite: https://i.imgur.com/ruZwMIm.jpg

I'm not saying any of these are strong enough to build a case on... but that y'all are missing the mark on "you can't copyright a last-man-standing DM" or talking about art assets and other such things.
There are very specific mechanics that PUBG can make a reasonable claim to seeing as how they hired the creator who first brought about these mechanics in the ARMA 2 mod-of-a-mod DayZ: Battle Royale, and then licensed those ideas to H1Z1 for their King of the Hill product. Case has a lot of parallels to the Valve-hired DOTA mod makers vs LoL etc. etc. situation that went down.
H1Z1 came first and was the originator of the modern concept. PUBG has no basis for suing other companies and is getting desperate. There's an excellent video on the matter here. Basically game mechanics are not protectable, therefore it doesn't matter that they share similar gameplay mechanics. PUBG Corporation has to demonstrate that Fornite copied the creative expressions used in PUBG, which isn't the case because Fortnite is highly stylised and a very distinct take on the genre.

Basically PUBG Corporation is being an anti-competitive cunt because it knows the game is on the way out and it wants to maximise its revenue now.

In Asia? Absolutely. Elsewhere? Not really. In the UK there's a brand called Game that has gaming arenas attached to some stores that are setup with a PC, XB1 and PS4 and you can choose which system and games you play on them. I don't know whether they have Steam accounts but I'd think it's probably quite likely. They're not really your traditional cyber cafe though.

Do you even know what a communist is? Because it seems very clear from your post that you don't. Even Bernie Sanders, who is about as left-wing as you'll see in the US, is actually a socialist and pretty moderate one at that.

Where do you see calls by US politicians to end inheritance? That's one of the greatest inequalities of capitalism yet the only policies one can observe are the removal of restrictions. Where do you see calls for the nationalisation of public services like energy companies and public transport? Nowhere. Where do you see calls for the end to property rights and the introduction of free housing to all? Nowhere. Where do you see calls for workers to own the means of production? Nowhere.

The only politics in America is right-wing capitalism, extreme right-wing capitalism and fascism. Your talking points are straight from the Cold War propaganda handbook and utterly detatched from reality.

Valve makes an absolute killing from Steam. It should have simply paid the fine and adjusted its policies than attempt to contest every imaginable point just for the sake of it.

It's sad so see Valve go from darling of the PC gaming world to a stagnating wasteland full of asset flips with appalling visibility on the frontpage. It Valve wants any credibility it should jettison all the low quality, low effort titles and focus on highlighting quality titles. Most of the Steam games I get these days are from other websites like Humble Bundle. And dear god, update the fucking client - it's appallingly outdated.

Make Half-Life 3 a SteamOS exclusive. Problem solved.
A better idea would be to make Half-Life 3 free on SteamOS / with Steam Machines and available at a cost for Windows users. That way those that are motivated by cost can have it for free and experience SteamOS whilst those not interested can simply buy it. Another option would be to release an updated Steam Controller and bundle Half-Life 3 with it, which would get the controller into millions of people's hands.

Half-Life 3 could be used by Valve to get SteamOS into most homes just like Half-Life did with Steam itself but Valve is so utterly inept at following through with game development that it probably won't ever happen. All it does these days is copy Blizzard, with games like Dota 2 and Artifact.

I'm just waiting for the EU's GDPR to go into effect so I can request all data be permanently deleted and have that be legally binding. It will also guarantee that Facebook provides all data it holds you, as currently it can claim it does without any legislation to compe it to do so.

Facebook went from being a useful method to keep in touch with friends and family to be a parasitic marketing tool used to manipulate people and silence political discussion by placing users in echo chambers. I've already uninstalled the client and moved to Messenger Lite to avoid the egregious advertising introduced to the main client. I honestly don't miss it at all.

I get about 40fps on average, with fresh servers running over 60fps+. Performance has definitely improved but there are too many bugs affecting core gameplay for the game to be enjoyable at this stage.

For me the 3.3 and 3.4 releases due Q3 and Q4 are the most interesting. They will bring planets, object container streaming, bind culling, server multithreading improvements and server meshing. That means major performance gains and a massively increased playercount. Just be prepared for some of those big-ticket items to be pushed back to later releases, as they are extremely complex.

Indeed. Viewing a slightly higher quality image shouldn't require an account for an entirely unrelated site. Bizarre.

As for AMD, it's a clever move to push FreeSync into consoles because that will create a demand for FreeSync TVs and undermine nVidia's proprietary G-SYNC. The current situation on PC is pathetic, where you have to base your monitor selection on your graphics card to have adaptive sync.
