Oh this is delicious....

So now SQ42 is a seperate episodic game you have to pay for? Ahahahahahahaha!

At the December livestream, we announced that Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be split into two separate packages in the near future. To update on this: the split will occur on February 14th. Squadron 42 will be available as either a stand alone game or an optional addon for Star Citizen rather than be included by default. If you want to lock in both games for the lowest possible price, consider pledging before this deadline. You can learn more about Squadron 42, our thrilling single-player adventure, here.

FUCKING L O L!!! OMFG! I can't breathe I'm laughing so hard!!!

And what was it again they promised in their KS - that was supposed to be delivered Nov. 2014?

Real quick, Star Citizen is:

A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person.

Single Player Offline or Online(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)

Persistent Universe (hosted by US)

Mod-able multiplayer (hosted by YOU)

No Subscriptions

No Pay to Win

So much for any of those lies. Ahhh man, I cannot wait to see the fanboys going into overdrive to rationalize this bullshit away. Hahahahaha!

I'm not a SC fan (anymore... and never was a fanboy) but it needs to be said that this split is only for new purchases after February 14th, of course. Everyone who bought a package with SC and S42 before that date will get both games as ordered.
Also, this has been known for a long time (since 2013) that they would make SC and S42 separate games at some point.

Haven't booted this up in a while.

Probably going to wait for SQ42 to come out before I jump in again. They said 2016...so should be any day now!

Haha if you keep up with development and look at the latest videos then there is PLENTY of reason to doubt very much that they will make it this year.

queue the haters

Honestly I don't understand why there are two camps. One Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen.

Nope. The two camps are one Star Citizen cultist fanbois and two people with a brain.

But seriously as far as SC vs E:D is concerned that is retarded as fuck indeed. Star Citizen won't be finished for years to come so there is more than time and space enough for both games.

And for even more space sims, of course... speaking of which, it actually is quite disappointing that there is no true FreeSpace or Wing Commander or Privateer/Freelancer spiritual successor in the making. Star Citizen has gone full retard and is trying to be way too much at once so some dev should definitely consider doing a real focused space sim like the good old fan favorite classics.

Sorry to interrupt the commie cunt circle jerking but I believe it needs to be said in Amazon's favor that they are at least investing and not hoarding the vast majority of their profits.
Amazon's billion dollar investments are directly and indirectly responsible for a lot of other investments, new and old companies flourishing and literally hundreds of thousands of jobs coming into existence with lots of happy families, happy cats and dawgs and even smiling gold fish.

Think about if Bethesda had made the compound building aspect of Fallout 4 a season pass DLC. That's pretty much my reaction to most of these season passes. I'm not against season passes if they actually provide a lot of value. For example CD Projekt Red's season pass offers two legit expansions. The DLCs are free. THAT'S the way to do season passes. If companies are going to charge almost as much for a game for the season pass then they better damn well make it worth the cost, and as I see it they are not offering anything even remotely close to what they're asking for.



1) Imagine a world where Bethesda would dare to include ridiculous DLC in their games... Horse Armor ring a bell??

Horse armor was $1.99, dude. Peanuts and chicken shit.

3) It's always up to the consumer to decide if the content is worth it.

Oh really? Then what is your problem with $1.99 horse armor? Why is it "ridiculous"? It was a quest to obtain the horse armor item. The problem is...?

In this case, because no one knows what the content for The Division is, I find it hard to believe that you know something that none of us do.

Only 1/3 (expansion no. 3) is unknown. The other two DLCs are straightforward and everyone can imagine exactly what they will get.

Yeah Origin is the least of their problems. It's a decent gaming client. The real problem is the bullshit business practices surrounding it all like overpriced DLC, season/premium passes made up of cut content, retarded preorder incentives, poor game balance in favor of preorder/microtransaction/DLC items etc. etc. etc.

What sounds compelling to me is to give this entire game a PASS and for more than just one SEASON!

A quick FYI, very high textures requires 6gb vram.

Maybe on paper like with ME:SoM but I've seen several (OK two) hardware reviews of the game and it was stated that even at 4K there is no VRAM issues.
The raw performance demands will drag the game into the 30fps region even with a 980Ti so 4K maxed out is not playable to begin with (as usual with most demanding AAA games... we're nowhere near "4K ready").

At 1080p the game is supposed to sit at just over 3GB and at 4K just under 4GB VRAM usage.

The GTX 970 with its 3.5GB "limit" is supposed to run into issues at 1440p though so apparently you do need fast'n'full 4GB VRAM for 1440p.

^ all of the above based on the worst case benchmarks those sites ran so the game will run even better and "juster finer" Wink in probably more than 90% of the in-game situations.

As much as I loved the last game I don't want to pay $60. I'll wait till I see a deal.

Waiting is definitely the order of the day for this game:

- To not support the exclusivity bullshit with a full price purchase
- Wait for the DLC and the complete edition
- Wait for the DirectX 12 patch (not guaranteed to come but very, very likely)
- Tomb Raider is going to have its 20th anniversary later this year... I'm betting they will have lots of specials, additional content and pretty big discounts then

JayDeath wrote on Jan 28, 2016, 13:23:
I just left the Steam forum. Apparently the game is now %10 off on Steam while those who preordered paid full price. Ha! Let the shitstorm begin!

Serves the dumbfucks who preorder right.

Uhh Cj, you do realize DX12 works only on Windows10? You can't really call yourself anti-Microsoft and have that OS installed on your PC. Not with a straight face anyway...

This is part of the waiting game. I will take advantage of the free upgrade but at the last minute. Then play Tomb Raider some time next year or even 2018 probably when the GOTY sells for less than $10. Yeah I prolly won't pirate but buy it from a key site so I can get a stolen (or nVidia promo) key that no one official gets any money for .

OK, y'all keep supporting this, well, you'll see what you get from your buddies at Microsoft in return. They will reward this handsomely with even more and longer timed exclusives.

I will definitely wait to either pirate or buy the GOTY edition with all DLC when it is at least -75% off also because there's talk about an upcoming DirectX 12 patch so like all modern half-assed PC releases this game will only get better with time.

But yeah go ahead and buy the release version with cut content, bugs and only DirectX 11. Show those Microsofties just how much of a bunch of suckers you really are!

@Ceribean: Maybe read the thread? You are completely factually wrong about the tiers at which people now have or have not access to the game/beta/early access. Why even bother replying if you don't even understand the basics?

I did read the thread.

250 is where physical rewards gains beta access.
150 is where the CE physical tier sits.
75 is where digital gains beta access.
20 is the buy in for KS backers who do not currently have beta access.
44 and change is the buy in for EA entrants.
Also, as I recall, it was 20 was the initial tier for a digital copy with no access to betas.

Which part of that did I misread?

But I still don't understand what would make you upset that you don't get access to a bug-filled story based rpg now, rather than waiting for the time you originally assumed you were going to get it?
Also, how do you assuage the (correctly I might add) upset people who paid for a beta access if they grant the non beta tiers EA just because they started selling a non-KS discounted beta buy-in?

Let me put it this way. They should have done either of these two things in my opinion:

- Since early access at $44.99 effectively buys you beta access right now, they should have handed out keys to all KS backers, regardless of digital or physical tier, who have pledged $44.99 or higher.
If they would be nice they would maybe even extend it to tiers starting at $39 or $35 or even lower since KS backers made this game possible in the first place almost THREE years ago and had to stomach many delays already.
The $20 beta pass is complete bullshit. It needs to not even exist. It is an insult.

- Alternatively they should have had a much longer beta period where only the original KS backers have access ($75 up and $250 up respectively). No one is complaining about the original idea. That's fine. The huge gap between physical and digital makes no fucking sense whatsoever but OK... people had a choice when the KS was on.

The only real problem here is that early access is fucking it all up.
Why does a Johnny Come Lately early access dude who coughs up $44.99 now that the game is almost done (a very safe investment) get treated better (has more access privileges) than people who pledged a multiple of $44.99 in the case of physical tiers way back in 2013 when this was a much more unsafe loyalty/good faith investment?

Knowing inXile this game will be in early access for months (WL2 took nine months) so getting in now for $44.99 is quite a feat. Let us assume Torment will be in early access for the same period of time.
The complaints would probably be way milder if, say, beta would have run for eight months and then early access only meant a week or a month max but this is not going to be the case.
People who pledged $45 or $50 (digital) or below $250 for a physical tier are really getting screwed in the a by early access. Especially for the digital people it would have been much better to just wait for early access instead of making a pledge.
