The only lesson that should be learned from all this BS is NEVER start or run your business in California. The socialists and SJWs running the failing economy and government (look at broken ass infrastructure if you dont believe me) are destroying way of life there.
What exactly do you think the definition of 'socialism' is? Because it's very apparent it's not related to the actual definition.

Now we have confirmation from Amazon that not only did it licence Lumberyard to CIG (which was publicly known) but also CryEngine, meaning that CIG cannot be in breach of the GLA with Crytek. Not that Crytek's claim had any merit, as the GLA specifically included Star Citizen AND Squadron 42.

Crytek attempted to extort CIG and now it looks like it will be on the hook for over $500,000 in legal costs, possibly a lot more. Crytek should be focused on paying its own employees rather than filing baseless lawsuits that will create even more of a blackhole in its finances.

Welcome back to the discussion forums.
I loiter.

By the way, Leonard French has also put up an analysis of this update to the case.

Hadn't seen that, thanks. Seems to me section 2.4 of that agreement covers CIGs obligations pretty specifically. And there is nothing in the amendments that changes that.
You'd be wrong. See here for a legal analysis: YouTuber Law.

Contract law has specific interpretations established over decades to define common contractual language. That's why it's important to consider the opinions of legal experts.

Please watch the video I linked to above and then explain to me how CIG is in breach of that provision.

If only someone had said this was a frivolous lawsuit.
Indeed.

This is why I find it funny when people accuse me of being a Star Citizen fanboy, yet refuse to consider the opinions of legal experts on this lawsuit. Every legal analysis of this lawsuit showed it to be frivilous and now here we are, with Crytek attempting to dismiss its own lawsuit to avoid paying CIG's legal fees.

People can hate this game all they want - and there are plenty of legitimate reasons to do so - but they have to separate that from the legal merits of a lawsuit like this. Crytek is trying to save face by attacking CIG through demonstrably false statements when its real strategy is to never refile, letting it off the hook for the $500,000 in legal fees that CIG is seeking costs on.

I called this two years ago and yet half the comments here are still from Star Citizen trolls who are so disconnected from reality they're somewhere in the multiverse of madness.

My concern is that the game is supposedly due out Q3 2020.

Yeah, I imagine they'll miss the Q3 deadline since the roadmap doesn't say it'll be released in Q3. Unless you meant beta release..? I assume that will take longer than a quarter.
CIG hasn't been clear whether the game will be playable from beta or how long the beta process is going to be. Right now all we have to go on is the final entry on the roadmap, which is Q3 2020 for beta.

It's all academic anyway, as it will get pushed back anyway. It already has slipped and the quaterly targets haven't been hit, so another push back is inevitable.

The visuals are great, as we've come to expect. My concern is that the game is supposedly due out Q3 2020 yet we haven't seen any credible gameplay from Squadron 42. We saw a vertical slice previously but that was narrative based and the AI looked pretty poor.

The roadmap for S42 has barely moved in the past year and many of the tasks for Q3 2019 are yet to be completed, let alone Q4. I can't see this even making 2021. That said, better for them to delay it and get it right the first time than ruin a narrative experience with a rushed, buggy, incomplete release.

I honestly don't care about which platform it's on, as I just use GOG Galaxy to deal with that. However, this just looks crap. I used to play MW2 and MW3 back in the day and enjoy them but this holds no interest for me.

That's the core issue right there.

It's not whether or not this game will come out..
It's not whether or not they will deliver on the tech.

It's simply...will this game be any sustained fun?
Exactly. The majority of the gameplay will not resolve around combat, therefore it's about how enjoyable that's going to be. Different environments like those shown off will definitely help, where you have to take into account your oxygen supply or the temperature window of your outfit. But it really comes down to whether the game will be able to handle vast numbers of NPCs and use them to create compelling gameplay loops. PVP is important but even if there are millions of concurrent players and server meshing works as envisaged, the size of the universe means you're still talking about a very lower player density.

The game will add more ships, planets, moons, landing zones and even star systems but it still requires something to occupy your time. Quantum shows they're looking at a dynamic system to do just that but it's a massive undertaking.

My prediction: the game will be vastly more enjoyable in about 2-3 years but it will be about 4-5 years before NPCs, dynamic server meshing and gameplay systems get close to what people are expecting from the final release.

I have been summoned.

As someone who attended CitizenCon this year and went on a studio tour, the presentation was decent as a tech showcase. However, it doesn't address the enjoyability of the game right now. It's still years off.

What I will say is that Theatres of War was a blast. I played a pre-release version in a 20v20 environment and I can see it being a popular game mode. It reminds me of Unreal Tournament with the phase-based objecttives.

What an utter nonsense, man! You act like I was attacking some harmless part of their culture, like music or kitchen. I was specifically targeting something I think isn't helpful.
So black people considering each other family is not "harmless" and "isn't helpful"? Oh no, how dare black people like each other. That must pose such an existential threat to your racial identity.

OK, but what do you actually think I mean with "non-issue"? Do you really think I think cops shooting innocent black people a non-issue, or do you think I mean that it is not systemic as the data shows? There's also no evidence that the actual wrongful shootings are because of racism, exceptions notwithstanding. People like Colin want it to be racism and evidently desperately so.
There's plenty of evidence to support allegations of racism in US policing: One / Two / Three / Four / Five

It seems very clear you just don't want to accept the possibility there may be an issue. In your mind black people are just playing the victim card and stirring racial division. Your racial prejudice is clear for all to see.

I think I know better than you what my thoughts were back then, bud. I no longer agree with how I expressed myself, but I know what I meant back then. In a particular corner of black culture there's still very much an us/them way of looking out into the world. Same goes for white culture, but that white corner is a taboo and rightly so. I just think it should be the same thing for that part of black culture. Equality. Unity. I have a few black friends and one of them is actually one of my best buddies. That says a lot about me. Don't let the meme that it does not, fool you.
So you still mean the same thing, you just don't like that it comes across as racist? Hardly a compelling defence. And don't even get me started on the whole 'I'm not racist because I have a black friend' spiel. I too have black friends yet I don't get accused of being a racist because I don't make racist remarks.

You can't claim to be calling for racial unity whilst launching attacks on black culture. Given your earlier comments about Colin Kaepernick, your racist tendencies are clear for all to see. It seems the only way you would tolerate black people is if they act indistinguishably from white people and don't dare to do something that might offend you.

Typical, the way you evade my actual comment. No substance whatsoever regarding it. Steel-manning your opposition is something you fellas don't do. Instead, let's search for comments of the guy I want to destroy that can drag him through the mud, even if said comments are 6 fucking years old. And even said comment can only be interpreted as something not good because I didn't add the #notall disclaimer. My intention in the comment was clearly a call for unity instead of keeping a wedge between two cultures.
Bullshit. You can't claim your comment was a call to racial unity whilst outright attacking black culture. Your comment clearly can't "only be interpreted as something not good because I didn't add the #notall disclaimer" because everybody else interpreted as racist.

Most bizarre is your defence. You highlight that the comment was 6 years old - as if your views are no longer the same - only to then provide an impassioned defence of said comment.

Yeah, I don't quite get the outrage over this either. There's a very rare reward out there for those who do play a ton / professionally / have a lot of money. It doesn't affect those who don't have it.
It's exploitative. The goal is to extract obscene amounts of money from people with poor impulse control / addictive personalities. It's like charities that target the eldery because they're easily persuadable.

Capitalism like this has no place in society.

If anyone's desperate enough to be pirating this shit then the developer should be thankful. Those pirating are more likely to become purchasers further down the line. Draconian bans like this don't work and only impact those interested in the franchise.

From a personal note, there's no way I would ever go back to 7. That OS, even the 64-bit flavor, is nowhere near as stable as 10. In the entire time I've used Win10 64-bit, I've had one BSOD, and NVIDIA drivers caused that during its installation (it hasn't happened since).
Windows 10 is stable but far from perfect. I experienced several bluescreens only today after updating to the latest build, 1903. It looped until I managed to get onto the desktop to run chkdsk and has been fine since.

The hate towards FO76 was never really warranted, even at launch. Its biggest flaw was that it was a multiplayer spin-off instead of FO5. That's why most of its critics never even played it. However, it actually plays very much like FO4. You still spend the majority of your time exploring, killing, scavenging and crafting. There are still NPCs, they're just robots. There are still tons of interesting POIs and lore to discover too. As with any BGS game, there are bugs and the UI is still awful but at least mods help with the latter.
I disagree. Fallout 4 was lacklustre due to the dated engine and familiar gameplay, yet it still had appeal. Fallout 76 was an abortion of a game that stripped out everything that made a Bethesda game compelling - it had no NPCs, no compelling quests, no ability to mod the game and was supported by a company with no experience maintaining an online service.

Bethesda wanted recurrent monetisation and to cash-in on the Fallout brand name. The backlash means that the company has to tread very carefully when it comes to the next Elder Scrolls game, as it won't be able to get away with the same dated engine and buggy gameplay.
