It's extremely linear and the gameplay is repetitive. Can't say I'm impressed. The story seems like it might be a little interesting but not enough to make me want to actually buy the game.

People wanted another Wing Commander and Privateer, and now they get THIS?! People working on virtual hair and... Oh my. Whatever. Elite is out and fun. Even without millions wasted on facial animations and hair f/x. SC is still one mess of a project. Best of luck on delivering the game within the next 10 years.
Stop being a muppet. All games have hair and facial animations. As for Elite, I've played it a bit whilst waiting for SC but it just doesn't hold my attention.

Can it run Star Citizen will replace Can it run Crysis as the new meme.
Doubtful. If I can get up to 80fps on a poorly optimised alpha when they haven't even implemented Vulkan support then I don't think the final game will be all that ridiculous. In fact by taking full advantage of the PC platform I expect it to actually do better than most multi-platform releases. Right now most of the performance issues stem from server bottlenecks but recent PTU patches have substantially improved things - it's why they've been running tests with the player count increased from 24 to 60. When object container streaming is fully integrated that will help performance significantly.

They can play the current Alpha build, follow the videos of the development progress or participate in the online community. The game is getting made, it's just not as quickly as people would like.

Hey, congrats on winning an Optane. I am looking forward to trying 3.0, which sadly is months behind schedule. Hoping I can cruise around a few planets and maybe do a few missions in beautifully rendered space.
Hehe, cheers. Just be realistic with your expectations. It's a major improvement but there's still a long way to go. It's much better played with a group of friends.

By the time this game comes out, it's gonna look old and outdated. There is so much already in there that looks like been there done that. Heck the spaceship in Alien Isolation has a more realistic look than that.

I also find the facial animations to look quirky but I'm sure they can fix that up.
It won't because they are constantly improving the fidelity. Go back and watch the original Kickstarter video and the progress is incredible. Even year on year the fidelity is improving considerably.

As for facial tech, it's work in progress. The videos they demonstrated as CitizenCon show where it will head up. The hair is also work in progress and at an early stage in development.

After gameplay systems comes content. CR promised 100 systems. There's less than one. Hell, I'd settle for 10 complete systems at this point.

Also, we've heard nothing about the single player campaign for years.
Squadron 42 is going to be demoed during the Holiday Livestream this year. What and how much they're going to show remains to be seen.

Performance is substantially better in 3.0. Depending on the server I've been getting as much as 60-80fps, though that reduces as the server continues. There's more work to come but this is the first time performance has come even close to acceptable in the persistent universe.

As for gameplay and enjoyability, that still isn't there. It's better than it was but it's a long way from being a game for the average gamer. It really comes down to how quickly they can iterate and add gameplay features. This year has been chronically slow and pace needs to pick up.

All that said I'm happy I went to CitizenCon this year and I even managed to win an Optane 900P, which was a major bonus. Progress is being made, even if it's not as quick as I'd like.

But I do like the idea of no season pass, they just need a way to justify the continuing development post-launch with some revenue stream that doesn't piss off half the world.
You like the idea of paying upfront for content you know little about and that might not ever be released? It's just an excuse for squeeze fans of the game by locking away content. I prefer the concept of expansion packs, whereby existing DLC is bundled together and gamers can decide whether they feel it's worth it.

It's only when EA's share price is affected that they start to take notice. Still, it's better late than never. Hopefully the backlash continues.

EA is charging £70/$93—which is already an obscene price—for a game that uses a free-to-play model of megatransactions. Either release it for free and have megatransactions or charge full retail price - it can't do both.

So much talent and effort has gone into the game it's saddening to see EA force this bullshit on gamers. I refuse to support such obnoxious business practices, so it's a hard pass for me.

If you're going to quibble about price, be honest, don't be deceptive. The price is $60, which has been the standard price for games like this for about a decade now. I have no idea where you're seeing it for sale at those prices, but price gouging isn't exactly the fault of EA.
That's the UK price for the Deluxe version (i.e. the one that doesn't box off content from you). There is a basic version but that's still $73. I don't care if everyone else is doing it, that's too much for a video game.

Yup. They sued Activision for withholding royalties and then Activision fabricated an excuse to get rid of them. Activision then sued them for the loss of earnings caused by firing them. It was an utterly preposterous debacle.

As for Respawn, they're just cashing in while they can - it's only a matter of time now until the studio is shuttered. This isn't being done for the long-term interests of the company.

Yes, I it is absolutely "SCAMMING AROUND A FEE" like the whole Guild Wars 1/2 is "SCAMMING AROUND A FEE"... LOL!

I simply don't play subscription games. If ActiBlizz doesn't want new people to play WoW - it is their decision. Whatever, I got other games to play without monthly fees (you know, those few games out there for SCAMMERS... Like pretty much 99% of all games available. Hilarious.).
This. Charging for a game this old would be an insult.

Kxmode wrote on Apr 17, 2017, 22:35:
In other (older) news, The Escapist quietly purged the Star Citizen articles that called into question a host of issues with the project and financial shenanigans.
That's because the articles were completely unsubstantiated. The information was provided by Derek Smart, a known troll and hater of the project, and by alleged employees identified by their security badges (CIG doesn't use security badges). The author even lifted anonymous comments from another website and portrayed them as a source.

There's plenty of legitimate criticism of the project but the Escapist articles were demonstrably false. Heck, one of the main claims was that CIG had run out of money and was laying off staff - 18 months later and CIG is still in business and has expanded the number of employees it has. The allegations of racism were baseless and no attempt was made to verify the claims with CIG employees or give CIG a chance to respond.

I understand that you hate the game but that doesn't mean you should throw objectivity out of the window and post links to demonstrably false information just because it aligns with your world view. You're just embarrassing yourself.

You'd think SQ42 would be a lot more straight forward, since there's less of this pie-in-the-sky technology.
Indeed. That eliminates networking, which is the biggest hurdle for Star Citizen at the moment. But they don't even have the female character finished, Vulkan support and anti-aliasing are missing and AI NPCs are way behind schedule. We'll likely see it revealed properly this year but it won't be released until 2018 at the earliest.

In defense of Star Citizen, you could actually buy all the ships for ten thousand.
That doesn't include the Javelin, which costs $2,500 alone. It's also missing the entire Hull range (top model is $550), the Prospector ($140), Razor ($135), Polaris ($750), Prowler ($425) and many more.

Yeah, my son was bugging me to DL 2.6.3, but I convinced him to wait until 3.0 comes out.
Yeah, 2.6.3 brings nothing to the table. Performance in the PU is still terrible and everything else is pretty much the same.

As for 3.0, despite a lot of the features being cut I'm still looking forward to it. As long as they eliminate the networking bottleneck and it can hit 60fps it'll be a major release. The delays are disappointing but to be expected at this point.

I think the real question is what state Squadron 42 is in, as that was meant to be showed off last year and we haven't heard anything about it. I can't see it being released until the end of 2018 at the earliest, with footage likely being shown at CitizenCon this year.

14. Re: Star Citizen Free Fly & Roadmap Apr 15, 2017, 18:51 theyarecomingforyou
 
Just a heads up for those interested in the game: it's not worth trying now. Come back in a few months when 3.0 is released. Right now you can play Arena Commander and Star Marine at decent framerates but both have very limited gameplay; the Persistent Universe is where most of the content is (and it's not exactly a lot) but because of a networking bottleneck it only runs at 15fps, no matter your hardware.

What's being developed looks extremely impressive but scheduling is a joke. This release was supposed to be out last year and yet now it's due out in June/July and a lot of the features have been pushed back to later releases (planets, mining, AI NPCs, etc).

TL;DR For now there isn't much to report. Check back later.

Really, can we collectively stop caring so much about the platform? I mean exclusives are divisive enough, can we just focus on MS actually trying to make a PC game? And weather that game will be any good? Do they have any solid studios left that they haven't bankrupted who can pull off a real PC game?
It doesn't matter if the game is decent if the platform ruins the experience. I received Gears Of War 4 with my graphics card and I have never had such a terrible experience - the download constantly stalling, restarting, corrupting, etc. It took me weeks to actually get it installed and running - registry resets, deleting hidden folders, etc. Turns out it was because of telemetry data being sent in the background which NetLimiter blocks, despite no other platform having an issue with it.

I will never buy any game on the Windows Store. At least Uplay and Origin I can tolerate, even if they're far from ideal. If Microsoft was serious about PC gaming it would create a gaming hub that acts as a centralised access for games from all platforms, allowing gamers to manage games from multiple stores. And if it cared about its own digital platform it would take the best aspects of the competition, rather than creating a restrictive DRM hell with an appalling UX.

Halo Wars 2 could have been a decent game but it was ruined by using a console interface, pay-to-win and the Windows Store.

We've heard this bullshit from Microsoft before. Microsoft really needs to be kept as far away from gaming as possible, as it taints anything it goes near. Halo Wars 2 is a shitty console port tied to the Windows Store, another abomination.

If Microsoft wants to show its commitment to PC gaming then it should start by abandoning the Windows Store altogether. It's worse than GFWL and that's saying something.

I'm really not worried about new features, as there's a bug that causes the game to crash to desktop when you get to a particular turn. Going back and loading earlier saves doesn't help. I don't want to invest ten hours into a game only to not be able to complete it because of a bug.
