Might actually jump into this now... I picked it up when it first released, but it was too sparse with content to really get into. As is usual with FDEV, give them a year or so and it will fill out.

I got a really enjoyable 60-or-so hours out of it, and then I hit the "oh... this is it? Everything from now on is going to be different versions of this one thing?" wall. I hate that that wall exists, but that's reality for ya.

He misspoke, he meant "auto-aim", as claims reddit and an updated statement.

Linkage? I'm not going to go through the effort of digging through reddit to look for an idiot correcting himself for misspeaking because he somehow got "auto-aim" and "recoil" confused.

This is a crazy thought, I know... But I'm gonna see how the game feels before I bitch about a lacking 'feature'...

I obviously am not speaking of everyone with a blanket statement, but... I think a lot of the bitching is about:
1)The industry-wide practice of removing features from a PC version of a game in order to increase sales of the console version of the game.
2)The confusingness of what he's saying. It sounds like he's talking about rumble (what people usually mean when they say force-feedback). Recoil does not "[feel] really good" when you're using a controller. You don't feel it except through rumble. And guess what... people can use controllers on the PC. Why not make it an option.
3)*IF* he's talking about recoil... that still makes no sense because recoil affects gameplay, implying that he might be talking about auto-aim as a response to the recoil.
4)The idiocy of his excuse, if he *IS* meaning what he actually said. It's reminiscent of when Blizzard completely removed anti-aliasing from Starcraft 2 because it affected low-end PCs. Their BS excuse was:

"After evaluating our options, our engineering team opted not to provide AA support for StarCraft II within the Catalyst Control Center, even though the competition has included AA support in their driver at launch.

We are committed to making AA perform at an acceptable level before we release it to our customers. We will continue to work with Blizzard on this matter and hope to offer our customers an acceptable AA solution at a later date."

That's utter BS. Let the PC gamers decide if they can accept the impact of AA or not. Don't remove it for EVERYONE.

This definitely isn't real gameplay. The game will play somewhat like this, but this is basically just a huge cutscene. With that said, if this IS representative of the final gameplay, this is terrible. There's no gameplay... It's just an interactive movie with constant scripted cutscenes. There's also zero player choice, no conversation trees... Nah. What happened to you Bioware?

So, just fro ma 6 min video you already gathers all that information? Yea, OK!!!

Once you've been around the block a few dozen times, you'll notice some obvious patterns. Don't worry, one day you'll get some experience.

Wow sounds like the dude who did Banished should be suing these guys. Shame, I was hoping this was going to be good.

Because Banished had walls and keeps and all that kind of stuff too, or because there can't be ANY similarities in games in the same genre? Once one game is made, you can't make anything similar ever again, right?

Oh, Cutter... /sigh...

Also, to everyone else... of course it looks similar to Banished. It looks even more similar to another game: Life Is Feudal...

Try paying taxes you fucking hypocrite.
Did I miss a tax issue for Zuckerberg? As far as I know he paid 100s of millions of taxes when he exercised his Facebook stock options.

Cutter just enjoys getting off complaining about things. And apparently he's never met a Baby Boomer if he thinks self-purpose has never been about a job. It's often one of the very, very first things they used to list when asked something akin to "well, tell me about yourself"

You will likely be happy at all the later-game stuff that Utopia adds. Fixing this is literally the point of the expansion.

Testing a so called gamers rig that has HD 4000 graphics is hilarious, about the only thing you can play with that is maybe tetris. You would think someone at HARDOCP would have caught that mistake.

I dunno, I think the big news here is that a hard network connection is better for gaming than a wifi connection! Who knew! We can thank the quality journalists at PCGamer for this breaking news!

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL

Downloaded the 36GB, played for 15 minutes and uninstalled because this isn't a FPS but it's a fucking lame jump&run game. What a piece of shit. I should've known better than to even mouse over that download button with an EA game *sigh*...

Where in the world do you get your expectations? We have YEARS of TitanFall gameplay. What next? Will you get pissed off at Civ6 not being an RPG?

Short version: It's more complicated and takes more time/effort. Please ignore ME1 and ME2 as examples of what happens when you put forth the effort as we were under different management then. Thank you.

Actually small-c communism (more precisely, *actual* Marxism) makes perfect sense in a post-scarcity world, which we're only a few generations away. We're seeing the very beginning of it now.

https://unlearningeconomics.wordpress.com/2013/03/24/yes-libertarians-really-are-lazy-marxists/ is a really fun read. Enjoy.

There are lot of "ifs" to overcome but let's say humanity does end up in space and space travel becomes as bog standard as automobile travel currently is.

When it comes to war, as descender rightly said, there will be no dogfighting. However, I disagree with his scale.

Space warefare will necessarily be between capital ships solely and they will not be fought at hundreds of miles, or thousands of miles but will be at tens of thousands of miles or greater distances. Space is fucking vast, even within our own solar system.

Unfortunately, that's the thinking the big nations had prior to Jutland. No need for medium or small ships since we have these dreadnoughts which, one v one, will destroy anything lesser than it.

Obviously that turned out to not be the case.

See my below point about Big, Medium, Small. That still will always, always, always exist.

There's a reason why the Death Star had fleets of fighters stationed on board. It's the same reason the Bismarck had men firing hand-held guns at the swordfish torpedo bombers. The Bismarck's regular guns weren't calibrated to be able to shoot at something to pathetically old and low tech.

I wonder how far along our technology has to progress before the general public will understand that "space dogfighting" is not and will never be a thing.

I think we already understand that. Assuming we haven't overcome our warlike tendencies by the time we are regularly traversing among the planets, capital ships would dominate space navies. Fighter type ships would lack the armor, weaponry, and range except in perhaps very special circumstances.

The analogy for actual space navies in a few hundred years won't be aircraft vs. naval ships. It will be naval ships vs. naval ships. Imagine a modern navy doing battle on a perfectly flat ocean (no hiding behind the curvature of the earth) with hyper accurate standoff weapons with ranges of hundreds of miles. Now imagine trying to take on a Ticonderoga class frigate or Zumwalt class destroyer with a speedboat. How would that little speed boat fair against mach 3 antiship missiles?

That being said, we still enjoy playing WW2 fighter games, even though the last time the USA had a gun kill was 25 years ago.

Rock Paper Scissors will never not be true. In the same way that tanks will always been individual terrorists and IEDs, frigates and destroyers will always beat individual gunboats. But that's not the point.

It wasn't the point 100 years ago when they pointed out that the massive new dreadnoughts would beat submarines and therefore piddly-ass tiny lil submarines are completely useless. It wasn't the point 70 years ago when they people said planes and torpedoes will never be able to penetrate the likes of Pearl Harbor and Taranto. It wasn't the point 50 years ago when the US military dropped more ordinance on Vietnam than they did on the rest of the world in WW2.

Sometimes, as bad-ass as a tank is, the best weapon against a tank is a single infantryman with either a bazooka or a molotov cocktail.

In WW2, Germany started to produce some tanks without machineguns cuz, duh, it's a TANK, and all it needs was that gigantic main gun and it's fine... right? Wrong. Those tanks were some of the most vulnerable tanks of the war and always required infantry escort to help the tank fight against the swarms of infantry.

Big will always beat medium.
Medium will always beat small.
Small will always swarm to beat Big.

Rock. Paper. Scissors.

It will never not be true in some form or another.

I want to be surprised by the game and have therefore not read anything dealing with its story, so I am most interested in finding out if this is a prequel, sequel, or alternate reality story.

I hope they won't sell parts of the story as dlcs like EA usually does.

And I hope my cat doesn't take a dump on my carpet, but hoping ain't gonna help my cat use litter boxes properly.

Ah, to be young and single and have the time to dedicate to a game like this...

While I miss my youth, I'm here to tell you it's nor a requirement.

Fun game, but DEFINITELY not for someone with only one or two dozen extra hours a month.
