Renegade was one of those games that the demo was so complete that I never felt the need to buy the game. I probably had 50 hours in the demo. It was a good map - I could basically singlehandedly dominate it and win for my team, even with the team objectives. Looking back, maybe this was because the skilled players bought the game and I was solely playing newbs, but... still really dug the demo.

All I remember is one of the fields (in between bases) with a few large rock/hill formations to hide behind. The tank vs tank battles that happened on it were amazing.

Vehicle driving, cars/trucks weren't too bad. Its still no racing game style driving but better than some I've experienced. The helicopter flying feels off, can't place my finger on that one but its funny.


Helicopters are just slow to start.

Hold forward (pitch down?) / ascend for about 10 seconds, then let go of forward. You'll keep your speed, and now forward/backward just control your elevation. You keep a good rate of speed and change altitude quickly.

The attack helicopters make short work of convoys, lots of fun.

I didn't play this, but from the videos it looked like Just Cause: Ghost Recon.


There is a radio clip when driving that starts with a chime/bell like Just Cause (chime) that combined with the car, scenery, and driving responsiveness gave me just cause 2 flashbacks.

I also liked the closed beta. It's great cause you can make your AI teamates do nothing - they can't be spotted or ruin you, allowing you to scout a camp/base and take out sentries in order to not raise any alarm/stay undetected the whole time. Was enjoyable but I ran out of stuff to do.

Funny that they test it on Blizzard's game(Overwatch) instead of their own game.

This was my first thought from my just woken up brain. I think it's really the codename of the human checkers instead, but amusing none the less.

Why not? It'd give people more reason to whine at valve

Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title. They may always give it another whirl, of course.

As far as good Vietnam shooters go, try Vietcong (for single player.) It's old and sometimes rough around the edges, but it was a very memorable game.

Oh my god. The menu music.

I could listen to the first bit (before it goes into a harder rock) on loop forever.

A remake of the original in a with a modern engine would be nice.

Not brand new triple AAA looking, but the most complete one yet, free on steam (if you own deus ex) -

Great game with flawed, exploitable AI.

The 2nd had some pretty fun multiplayer as well.

Lego games go on sale for $5, great time killers. Good value at that price too.

That brings us to a average of 2,755. Yep, could be a looooooong winter

Wow. Must live a real interesting, busy life that he has to come back to a place where no one likes him and is constantly forced to leave against his wishes.

Does bring interesting imagery when you think of him though.

So now, a ponzi, "In its basic form", is a metaphor. Despite being "precisely what a Ponzi scheme is.".

(a ponzi, in it's "basic form" is a ponzi.)



Kxmode wrote on Dec 27, 2016, 14:49:
He's referring to the idea that new concept ship sales basically provide the funds to finish already pitched concept ships that people bought. In its basic form, that's precisely what a Ponzi scheme is.

No, it is not, and what you said does not describe a metaphor, or an illustration. It describes a misunderstanding of what a ponzi scam is.

In other words, it's not a literal Ponzi scheme in the truest sense but has many of the same enrichment symptoms for those who bought into it early like LTI and early concept ships that haven't been created.

Jesus, you talked shit you did not know about, and rather than concede you talked beyond your experience, you try to act like your assumptions were correct.

This is in NO way a ponzi scheme. Ponzi schemes are VERY specific. Just because YOU only know of one financial scheme does not make it applicable to ANY other scam.

Is money being returned to investors, tricking them into thinking their investment are/were profitable, so they/word of mouth results in further investments, which are returned by the previous investors?

No? really? That's not how Star Citizen works?

Then it's not a fucking ponzi scheme. In any way, shape or form.

You can buy Star Citizen right now and download something that is playable. This is not vaporware. There are regular updates about Star Citizen, you can see the development of the title progressing, there are playable modules you can download and play right this very minute.

You can't call something that's in early alpha a delivered product until it reaches gold status and is a published product. It will remain vaporware because of the massive out of scope promises made.

For someone who likes to pick apart specifics, maybe you can explain the Ponzi scheme Star Citizen is.

The rest of us seem confused.

big pharma is sitting on so many unused formulas it would make your head spin

some of them are practically outright cures to fatal diseases, some are virtually harmless painkillers, the list goes on forever in this case

blocking medical marijuana isnt even the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the nasty, nasty things these guys are up to

dont worry - just like every other horrifying truth, what once was regarded as lunatic conspiracy theories will eventually be mainstream sadness and outrage, (usually after its far too late)

ultimately the human race is quickly reaching a period of dues paying and stress testing that IMHO they just arent prepared for in the least

it will make an interesting playground for all these kids and their potential offspring


LOL

A ponzi requires funds to be returned to investors. That is the HEART of Charles Ponzi's scheme. The allure of a profit producing investment, with no backing other than investors money, to entice further investments or reinvestments.

These guys sell imaginary ships for money, without returning it, to continue to fund their business.

It is NOT a ponzi scheme, which is a VERY specific type of scam. "But it's like one!" does not mean it is a ponzi.

So if you eat a pizza, crap it out, then decide two day's later that you didn't "really" like it, do you deserve a refund?

Using your analogy it's more like the menu shows a pepperoni pizza, the person tells me I'll get a pepperoni pizza. He hands me my order and I get in my car. Along the way, I smell pizza. It smells good. 42 hours later, I get home, open the box, and find it's a chicken salad. I didn't pay for a chicken salad. I paid for a pepperoni pizza. What to do? The pizzeria is 42 hours away.

Anyhow, you're not going to convince me because I don't believe you ever played NMS. You can't possibly understand the point of why people are asking for refunds after playing for 40+ hours.

No, "42 hours later" would be "42 hours later after eating it" ... 42 hours of PLAYING a game is not the same as waiting 42hours for a pizza. It is the equivalent is eating it.... all but 1 or 2 slices (It's NMS, 42 hours is nearly doing everything the game has to offer.) and saying "it's no good! 100% refund now!" while having 2/10 slices left. If you couldn't figure it out during the FIRST 25% of the item, the following 50+% is your fault - not the makers.

Maybe if you spent $1000 on Star Citizen, waiting for months/years for it, THEN refunded it - without seeing/eating a completed game (pizza) and only teases of it, it would fit the analogy a bit better as you were waiting for a product - not using that product. But you didn't drop $1k to the joke of Star Citizen so it's a moot point anyways.

But ANYONE who thinks "42 hours" on a game is a trial/getting to know it period is insane. Unless you start the game, and go idle for a day and a half before playing it. Or are VERY entitled and somehow out of touch with gaming in general.

Damn, what are you guys waiting for??

It's this easy to beat steam at the game it invented, why no action from you folk? Scared of having more money than you know what to do with? Don't want to become a "Gaben" of a joke, with billions in your pocket and the ability to direct the PC market on your whim? C'mon, it's easy, just look how nonchalantly you guys just dominated the market by undercutting steam, you guys found a secret recipe for a multi national, billion dollar business!! What are you waiting for ? Investors are everywhere, your sure fire idea will easily get them involved!


lol. Lots of talkers, that is for sure.
