Aaaaaannnnddd yet another fucking lame retarded season pass scam. Fuck you 2K.

$4.99 Steam sale for the GOTY (maybe... only if it gets glowing reviews). I can wait.

Aaaaand I remember buying the expansions for TIE Fighter. For real money, you know. Must have been before you were born.

Oh yeah? And they tried to sell us (I bet I'm older than you buddy) an empty box for those expansions in advance and did not tell us what the expansion content would even be like?
News to me. The way I remember it is we got the announcement of the expansion after the main game was released and when they announced it, we knew pretty much exactly what we were going to get if we (pre)ordered. We also never had to buy that empty box.

Your point?

They definitely did not deliver the Baby Persistent Universe in December that showed they could do what Derek Smart said they couldn't. Being able to start on a station in first person, get in a ship with some friends, or stowaways, in a Constellation Andromeda having one person fly and other people in the turrets.

I know you're trying to be sarcastic but you are indeed 100% correct that they have achieved FUCK ALL in that regard.
I mean you do realize that everyone (about 30 players max atm) is in one single instance, right?

What Derek Smart (and others, of course... like anyone with a basic level of a clue) has said is not possible is a multi-instance system with the ~80 to 100 players per instance CIG was shooting for with the full advertised "fidelity" and the full feature set. He (and others) never said that a single instance demo would be impossible. Get a freakin' clue.

The current state of the game is a minuscule tiny fraction of the full feature set (and "fidelity"), no multi-instancing, no instance transitions (you know... the hard part of making a MMO... any idiot can make a single instance tech demo like the current "baby PU"), and a player count far, far below the original target.

And as you will know, they are having massive desync issues right now and have been massively struggling with getting more players into that single instance. To call the current state of affairs "sad" would be an understatement.

You know what will happen if they introduce the multi-instancing, transitions and if they add more complex gameplay systems and "fiiidddeliteeeehhhh" for da "immeeerrrssshhhuuunn" on top of it all? Yup. Buh-bye, Shtar Shitizen.

Train -> Wreck -> Keep watching.

They should just finish up and release the SP game as a separate game all together (which they may already do can't remember)
That should help with the development cost of the MMO

Yep. It has already happened. They separated Squadron 42 and Star Citizen into two different games on February 14th of this year. Squadron 42 is theoretically still scheduled for release some time this year as CIG has not stated otherwise since that trailer that had "2016" at the end of it, but it seems more than doubtful that they will actually make it this year. Too many unfinished ships and gameplay systems and engine issues... not gonna happen unless they do an early access buggy-as-fuck release.

As for helping with the development cost of the MMO, that should not be necessary. Let us not forget that CR originally planned to make the full game for ~$20 to ~$25 million. We're approaching five times that budget (and more because if CIG manages the funds in a reasonable way, then even with very low interest rates, they should have made a couple extra million just from storing the cash somewhere safe).
If they are seriously hurting for money then CR has fucked up on a scope that no game project manager in the history of gaming has ever fucked up. Not that I would put that past him...

"From the start our aim was twofold - to make games that we wouldn’t be embarrassed to be caught playing ourselves and to expand the experience of playing those games by making them less limited and more engaging with the production values of movies."

And the end result was a human roadkill murder simulator. Great job, Rockstar. Mass appeal accomplished by appealing to the mass psychopathic tendencies.

Rockstar can shove their console garbage straight up their dumb asses. I do not give a single fuck until they start treating PC gamers with a minimum of respect which would entail porting RDR to PC and stopping to sign ludicrous exclusivity deals while then "teasing" PC gamers about the possibilities of a PC port (the way they treated PC gamers with regard to GTA V was among the most disrespectful asshole dick moves in recent history only topped by what Microsoft pulls off on a regular basis). Fuck them all. Not spending a single cent on that console garbage.

Maybe the single player game won't be a boring derivative experience?

Maybe it will rain $100 notes tomorrow?

It could happen!

How has no one mentioned this yet? Call yourselves #MasterRace?

The game is CAPPED AT 60 FPS. On an engine level. No way to disable it.

I played one round, went 21-3, then immediately uninstalled.

Fucking console GARBAGE. it's 2016. anyone who buys this game for PC needs to be publicly humiliated.

^ this

... and add to this the fucking retarded UNSKIPPABLE intro logos and screens, of which there aren't just the usual two or three but more like a dozen or so (technical disclaimer, id logo, Bethesda logo, nVidia logo, legal disclaimer, beta disclaimer, epilepsy warning) and you have a technically inept console garbage clusterfuck of the most epic proportions on yer hands. Fuck this game. Toilet. Flush. Buh-bye.

It's better than the last few iterations of R6.

You are quite clearly nucking futs, Sir, or just talking about the graphics or summin'.

Rogue Spear > Raven Shield > Rainbow Six > Vegas ... ... ... > Siege > Lockdown

And there's like a HUGE motherfucker of a gap between Vegas and the shit end of the stick a.k.a Siege/Lockdown.

Played a couple rounds and, yeah, it's GARBITCH!!!!111

The biggest GARBITCH!!!!111, however, and the reason this game has totally disqualified itself, even for a deep discounted purchase in the future, are the unskippable intro logos and legal and epilepsy warning crap screens.
Fuck that shit. If id/Bethesda are not capable of treating their customers with the slightest bits of respect then no buy. Not even for $4.99 for the GOTY. They can fuck and off and that's it.

My internet connection has not pissed me off enough recently to deserve this kind of insult. The poor thing already had to download the potentially very shitty Doom beta so it deserves a little rest from all those garbage bits & bytes.

I'm expecting the same garbage single player as with Doom 3. Very few cutscenes, same looking levels for nearly the entire game and lame random monster spawns out of nowhere to artificially extend the game time.
Call of Doom with plenty spectacular (over the top) cutscenes and some serious variation in the levels and objectives would actually be an improvement over the tardfest Doom 3 single player.

Why does it matter how they distribute cosmetic items? They did it to promote the streaming of the tournament.

It matters because obtaining items just from watching a stream is creating more entitled, obese, lazy, couch slouching, mouthbreathing Jabba the Hutts who will get on our collective nerves by demanding shit in exchange for zero effort. Result: Even more dumbed down games, even shittier business practices.

I no want dat.

It was really cool, at first. Now it's a pain in the ass.

You are probably the only person in the universe who feels that way or your "at first" means when you joined Steam in 2006 or so.
Because early Steam from 2003 to about 2006 was one of the biggest piles of fucking garbage ever dumped upon gamers in the history of gaming.

It started being "really cool" when they began having those cheap ass sales. Before that, most gamers wouldn't have given Valve the time of the day. It was the very definition of a major royal fucking pain in the fucking ass.

And you can still get a small taste of how abysmally bad it was every once in a while, for example last xmas sale (was it?) when they had those massive issues including the data breach.

I enjoy the convenience of Steam if and when it is working as intended but I'm not going to forget where it's coming from (way down that shitter hole).
Also, since it is digital rent, I'm usually very hesitant to pay more than $5 to $10 for any game. The days of full price purchases are long over for me. If I can not own a game like on GOG or retail then fuck you, Mr. Publisher.
But I'm not complaining... Steam has helped me save fucktons of cash in the process. It's fine. Digital rent has its pros and cons.
