Yippie! Just what the world needs after MEA... even moar casual, simpleton, dumbed down action RPG garbage where the only thing that is deep is the abyss into which the quality of the script, the story and the dialogues have fallen.

Is that in reference to the clone wars?

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.

It was a reference to this scene, of course.

But the Noooooooooooooooooooooooo might have been a reference to retarded prequel garbage .

... you still need a $10,000 mega computer to get anywhere near 40 fps.

Par for the course for any flight sim since the beginning of days Wink . It should be interesting to see how and where X-Plane 11 will settle in within the next few years.

DTG are supposed to release their FSX-based sim within the next few months. If rumors are true (they almost certainly are) Lockheed is going to release P3D 4.0 with a 64bit upgrade soon-ish. And finally there could be a sleeper hit in the making with NGFS but so far they have been all hype'n'talk and no show. They haven't even stuck to their original bi-monthly update schedule as the last post in the news is from over a year ago.

Still, interesting times ahead and it will be exciting to find out who will emerge as the "winner". X-Plane 11, P3D, DTG, NGFS or... or will good old classic (Steam)-FSX with its zillions of HQ add-ons prevail?

Sometimes I wish that all these gigs would simply get together and undertake a giant collaborate effort to create a true next gen civ flight sim. In theory it really ain't that hard. All that the FS community wants is an as accurate as possible representation of flying in the real world with a perfectly correct world model, accurate physics/weather/flight model, intelligent ATC, detailed PMDG-like planes and accurately simulated real world operations and procedures.
A huge mountain of work which would be perfect for a cross studio collaborative effort or maybe even an open source kind of undertaking.

Instead we get these half-assed attempts that are either based on ancient Microsoft technology or like X-Plane severely lack in some of the sim departments like ATC, AI traffic etc. *le sigh*
So here's to hoping that X-Plane 11 will have a long shelf-life and be updated to this elusive near perfect sim over its hopefully long and prosper lifetime.

And to top it off, the game has an ending that will blow your mind and your entire save data if you are not taking the prompts seriously Alone for that it is GOTY ;p

It's GOTY for deleting your save games? Bruuuh? Can I have some of whatever you just had?

I'm content to wait as long as it takes for the cracked version to come along, if it ever does...

Dude? It's all over da "daaaahhhknet" (version 1.04 at least) .
Makes me a happy camper, too. Means that the price will drop even faster and that fully patched GOTY for $10 to $20 should be here in about a year at the latest.
DAI also dropped very fast and SWBF was free-falling just three months after release. EA usually discounts fast'n'deep and probably even faster if the game's been h4XX0red. Good news all around.

Also, remember: According to many very expert folks especially here on BN, piracy does not hurt sales at all but it actually boosts sales because of the word of mouth marketing so EA is probably shitting themselves out of sheer happiness right now.

This probably sold more on PlayStation 4 than Steam

Yeh, SteamSpy sez 220K PC copies so PS4 won by a landslide as expected for a consolized casual garbage anime jump&run game.

Oh, I forgot they saved the best joke of their retarded post for the final paragraph...

And as always, you all play an important role in that. We want to hear from you about your experiences, both what you love about the game and what you’d like to see changed. We’re listening, and we’re committed to partnering with you as we continue to explore the Andromeda galaxy together.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Right. Is that why them fuckers shut down the BSN forums because they oh so loooove to listen to what people think? Where do they think people are s'posed ta leave their feedback? On fucking Facebook? Or Twitter with its retarded character limit where you can't even begin to describe 0.0001% of the shittiness of this abortion?

LULZ. First the game's a complete shallow, casual, dumb as shit clusterfuck and now they are trying to put out the fires with gasoline. Good job, EA. Rock on.

Their bundles are retarded. There isn't a single one without the €9.99 soundtrack. Fine then. I'll just keep waiting until the base game and all DLC (sans the soundtrack which I don't give a flying fuck about) goes on sale for less than €10. They can rip off other people in the meantime. Assholes.

Over the next two months we’ll be rolling out additional patches which will go even deeper and look to improve several areas of the game

Aaaahhh so at least they are admitting that this was an early access joke release. Good.

Still... GOTY for <= €9.99 or GTFO

Zero sympathy for anyone who still has not learned that you ALWAYS wait for a GOTY when a game has a season pass. Always. Always. Always.
Been like that for years and years, too. Falling for a season pass scam is like buying snake oil. You're begging to be scammed. The rule is so simple when a game has DLC: GOTY or GTFO.

Dumbest fucking retarded shit ever. I wish this stupid day and date would be erased from all calendars and we could instead have two groundhog days (February 2 simply happening twice).

But this stupid shit needs to die. Fast.

Saitek and Mad Catz are not the same company or are they?

They were the same company. When Mad Catz got into financial trouble they sold off Saitek to Logitech (a match made in shit quality heaven).

If you don't like either company, that is fine, everyone gets an opinion. However, when has Logitech ever been known for "shit quality"? Their mice and keyboards are just about indestructible, assuming you don't down them in liquid, and even then they often live on.

Logitech also had financial woes a few years back and ever since there has definitely been a noticeable drop in quality while at the same time they jacked up prices to hell (and unfortunately not back yet). It is ridiculous how they ask $70 for a gamer mouse which has "made in China from scrap" written all over it.

To their (slight) credit it needs to be said that (almost) no one else is really much better. Mad Catz had even shittier quality and justifiably went bust while everyone else does the same and sells the cheap plastic garbage with a gamer tag for +1000% profit margins.

However, if you are really looking for quality in the highend peripheral sector then there's still Thrustmaster. Their wheels and sticks (Warthog FTMFW) are second to none and of exceptional build quality. Most Logi products except for their decent wheels are complete jokes in comparison.

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*...

Saitek were supposed to build the Star Shitizen HOTAS but Logi is kinda all lolnotreally about it. They probably got their hands full to either adopt (more likely) or improve upon (less likely) the incredibly shitty abysmal quality of Saitek products.
Not sure why Logi even bought them in the first place. Saitek's rep lies in smoldering ruins among sim fans due to their massive shit quality issues.

At $30, it's a great campaign to play through. It's not terribly long, but holy CRAP it's packed end to end with big, fun set pieces. It's pretty close to Bulletstorm's wild variety.

lol@$30

Scratch a zero and we might just be in business. Not paying more than $5 max for this fucking lame casual EA garbage that is only just over six hours long for most people.

EA and Ubi have had a crossover sale agreement for a long time alreadeeeh (2013 https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/02/19/lakes-boil-ubisoft-and-ea-to-sell-each-others-games/) because they ain't such fucking Nazis as Valve with regard to their stores.

By the way, the "pissing match" wasn't so much about DLC pricing. It was more about selling DLC from within the game, i.e. EA had clickable links in their games which would take you to an EA website where you could buy DLC.

The greedy fucks from Valve disagreed with this practice, of course, since this bypassed their 30% of every sale cut cemented in their TOS. And then EA was kicked from Steam due to their violation of the TOS which they insisted on because they wanted to reserve the right to sell their content their way and not Valve's way.

Steam fantards made a much bigger deal out of this than it really was ("OMG EA no longer sells games via the holy Steam platform OMGOMG!!111"). In reality EA and Valve were pretty relaxed and cool about it all.

Hype? LOL

Why would there be hype over a casual consolized as fuck garbage FPS sequel, the first part of which never made it to PC? They can fuck right off with this crap is what they can.
