Grow up. It is called democracy. It has worked better than any place else in the world for over 200 years.

Oh has it now? What about the civil war, the holocaust of the native population, the slavery, the racial segregation, the great depression?
Are there shittier places in the world? Yes. But saying it has worked "better than any place else in the world" is a HUGE stretch.
But I'm not surprised since the "world" for most Americans still ends at the Atlantic (E), Pacific (W), Canada (N) and Mexico (S).

Yeppers. They can go fuck themselves. Same as with the lame-ass Deus Ex Human Revolution "Director's Cut". I'm not touching either franchise until I can have those games (i.e. their redux or DC editions) for pennies on sale. If that.

Yep, Phil, the MS Store is definitely about to become a true Steam killer. Your company's incredible commitment to PC gaming is overwhelming. Any day now. Any day. It is sooo exciting to be a part of it and to be allowed to be a witness of this monumental, historical shift in time. Absolutely epic.

How sad from nvidia... this suck with no OPT out option!

Nevermind for now, I sill use last year drivers.


Yeah it's so incredibly sad I'm going to cry myself to sleep tonight. Oh how my life is destroyed now....

But never-mind this only applies to GeForce Experience and is not there if you install just drivers on their own.

I only have the latest pure drivers + PhysX installed and still had that shit on my PC so this is not true.
The article is also crap because that shit can not just have been in the "latest" drivers. The date on my PC says it was added on Oct 12. The latest drivers are dated Oct 28.
Fuck all of this inaccurate reporting FUD shit.

Whoa there sparky, let's wait for them to actually release a game before adding them to such lists.

No need to wait. Those CIG fucks already have a criminal record of lies and fraud that easily defeats 30 years of EA. Gogeddum!!!11

Welp. People who look like E.T. or Admiral Ackbar are luckily still a minority. But maybe if y'all keep propagating then future games will support your species more frequently so get to it!

Some kids in my neighborhood have a fresh squeezed lemonade stand, but since I have an imaginary beef with Minute-Maid I refuse to purchase any citrus juice products.

Black Mesa (Crowbar Collective) is not affiliated with Valve. But keep up the boycott, that will show em.

They are affiliated with Valve in so far as buying the game would equal expressing an interest in the HL franchise and also because Valve would get a 30% cut if I bought their overpriced half-assed piece of shit mod.
So, yeah, I will in fact keep boycotting them and hope they go out of business and fuck off.

I don't really give a shit about this. Uninstalled the store immediately after upgrading and will never use it.
But this definitely sounds like typical MS customer friendliness.

Not getting a dime out of me until they finish Xen, then I will be happy to pay full price.

This bullshit has gone on way too long for an unfinished re-creation, it's been over 4 years since the "mod release" (September 2012). They also have the gaul to charge money without regular updates on Xen status (which I would expect for paying for early access.), and work on / release other things besides Xen.

Finish the fucking game before you charge. Or at least post regular update status for "early access". Not gonna spend money on something that should have been completed long ago on the hope I get the rest of the game in 10 years.

+1

But I will go even further than that. No money for *anything* HL-related from me until Gabe shows some respect to the fans and at least posts an update on the future of the franchise or releases episode 3 (yes, episode 3... I don't even expect HL3 until we get the final episode or a reasonable update explaining why there will be no episode 3). Until then Valve, Gabe and the HL franchise can go and fuck themselves hard.

So is this an entirely separate installation? In which case save games won't carry over?

Who cares?! I can't imagine anyone not starting a reroll with this release ^^
When I couldn't sleep 2 nights ago, I fantasized about what class/race to roll this time.

Dude, what??? You fantasize about rolling classes and races in Skyrim when you can't sleep? Instead of, you know, how Salma Hayek climbs on top of you and...

Sheesh. No wonder you couldn't sleep...

AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

I'll let you guys know how awesome it is!


I'm sure it will be, but it's Rockstar's loss ultimatively.

Is it?

They're the ones with the full knowledge of how much it would take to build, test, market and launch the game for the PC at the same time as consoles, as well as with a strong understanding of how much money they'd make for having done that.

This is just a small group of PC gamers going "well, they won't get my $60."

I'd wager it's more the loss of people who only game on one platform than anything else.

Well, according to SteamSpy GTA V has about 5 million owners (IMHO idiots but I guess that isn't really the point here, eh? ). Anyway, the game has never been on sale for less than 40 (probably the same in $, right?) so that is approximately $200 million right there.

There might be lots of cheaper copies from key stores but also lots of copies that people bought at full price so it should balance out near an average sales price of around $40 probably.

And it's "just" Steam, which probably makes up for 80%+ of the sales but it's not unreasonable to assume that there may be another 1 million PC copies outside of Steam so maybe we're more at $250 million revenue for the PC or even higher.

Well, good for Rockstar if they can so easily ignore a quarter billion bucks. Their loss. Those PC-despising assholes can go right ahead and fuck themselves with a rusty morning star.

Serious question, no joke: What's the non gender term? CowPeople? Cowhumans? Maybe Cowhands?

Nah. It's cowboy and bullgirl. It balances out.

As for RDR or 2 or whatever... they can keep their console exclusive garbage. Fuck Rockstar.

News Comments > Star Citizen Squadron 42 Delayed
196. Re: Star Citizen Squadron 42 Delayed Oct 16, 2016, 17:36 CJ_Parker
 
Peeeling is 100% correct. Star Citizen development has been managed very poorly. What we are seeing now with the development of the cloud-based infracstructure, for example, should have been the first priority since it is the foundation for everything else. This "boring" foundation development should have been 2012/2013 priority material, not 2016.

Instead, CIG focused their development on fast results and around a ship pipeline beginning with the fancy JPEG concepts.
In short, they followed a purely revenue orientated project plan and not a long term project plan driven by the ultimate goal to deliver the full scope PU.

One could write novels about this but quick examples would be the many ship iterations and reworks. All of that is usually stuff that would be done post-release when the devs are fine-tuning, iterating, rebalancing and so on.
Or a game mode like racing. CIG did this because it was relatively quick to implement along with Arena Commander but in any normal game development, racing would have had very low priority.
Do the vast majority of the people want to race or do they rather want to trade, smuggle, bounty-hunt, mine, play a pirate etc. etc. etc.? Right.

It is because of this short term goal revenue driven development process that Star Citizen is now a clusterfuck of a project. CIG now somehow needs to turn the ocean liner around and attempt to optimize their processes for a longer term full scope content delivery plan but -no surprise- they are struggling hard against their chairman's piss-poor decisions of the past.

Frontier naturally did a much better job in that regard. They always had a long term vision for Elite Dangerous, released a basic version and are now delivering the full vision update by update for as long as people keep buying the expansions.

This is another advantage compared to SC. If E:D goes tits up, people will still have a fairly solid game to play (e.g. the 400bn star systems will not be fully explored during our lifetime or that of our children and grandchildren either ... it will take roughly 20,000 years!).
If SC runs out of funding or it suddenly dries up, well, I know CR claims that they could still "finish" the game but that is definitely 100% bullshit with 300 employees on the payroll and you can not downscale so easily after you have upscaled so massively. Not possible. Changing the workflows and majorly reversing the project schedule would take a tremendous effort that would not magically lead to faster content delivery. Quite the opposite. Things would get even more chaotic and collapse faster.
Anyway, if SC goes tits up, then you don't even really have a basic version of what was promised for the foreseeable future (remember... we will still be at only 1 single star system until about early or mid 2018).

So, you can say about Frontier or E:D what you want, like how the cockpits are ugly with the pee-yellow colors or how you hate David Braben's fancy glasses and that 400bn star systems sucks because YOU can not explore them all even if you played 24/7 for the rest of your life, BUT in terms of project planning E:D is objectively the vastly better managed project.

On a high level (long term project plan), Frontier are doing it exactly right and contrary to CR's usual inane random babbling when he loses himself in his pipedream fantasies like how you will hide in a cargo container and sneak on board a ship to shoot the pilot and hijack/steal the ship, it is a joy to listen to David Braben's very intelligent, very realistic (or often times British understatement even), factual statements when he talks about E:D.

Braben knows exactly what he wants and whether it can or will be done and he doesn't shy away from simply saying 'nope' to the gamers while Roberts 99% of the time says "oh that is something we definitely want to, sort of, look into in the future", no matter how crazy the idea might be.

If SC would have been driven by a project plan focused on content delivery, we'd be much further along today. We might not be at $120+ million and maybe we would have a little less FIDELITEH and no other Hollywood actors in S42 except Hamill but all of that would be fixable by the success of the game. CIG could have always prettified and polished things post-release like any sane developer would have done.
But it is what it is... we must live with this clusterfuck caused by revenue-driven development where fast results, ship JPEGS and "OMG-so-exciting-reveals" for game/community shows have always taken precedence over everything else which is now biting CIG in the ass massively.

Oh nice. I can hardly wait for them to once again reset all privacy settings (plus remove some entirely) and reinstall Candy Crush, their shitty store, the Shitbox app and all the other crapware they usually reinstall without user consent every major update. Maybe in March with the added extra special feature that uninstalling via PowerShell no longer works? That would be really nice and consumer-friendly in typical MS fashion.
