News Comments > DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Announced
1. Re: DCS: F/A-18C Hornet Announced May 30, 2017, 21:56 CJ_Parker
 
Well, 'tis about time. The first time I heard about a F-18 being added to DCS "soon" must have been five years ago or something like that .

Still the biggest problem of this sim IMO... the gawddang snail's pace. They (or the respective 3rd parties) really need to crank out the most prevalent fan favorite modern jets and classic planes more quickly while also working on a realistic dynamic campaign theater with awesome AI that will keep players busy for a long time ( = make a modern version of F-22 TAW).
Maybe they should finally focus on one era, too, and decide whether they first want to "finish" the WW2 setting or the modern era. More focus = faster results (hopefully).

Remember when flying simulators were all the rage with PC gaming in the mid to late 90s? Where did they all go?

What jdreyer said plus the Shitbox happened. From 2001 on, Microsoft very, very, very actively sabotaged PC gaming and tried to brute-force people to switch to the Shitbox and the living room with their gaming.
They stopped making Sidewinder PC peripherals, shut down Aces Studios (MSFS) and generally backstabbed PC gamers every chance they got (and get... I mean it's still ongoing today thanks to that Phil Spencer clown) by signing dirty backroom exclusivity deals.

That's how sims died. Sims were always pushing the envelope in terms of graphical fidelity. Many people were looking forward to the latest iteration of MSFS just to see the next step in PC graphics because MSFS was often times also used as a vehicle to advertise a new OS with a new DirectX version. FSX and DirectX 10 was the final half-assed attempt due to Spycrosoft's console focus.

I am quite sure that sims would very much still be alive and kicking if, instead of the Shitbox focus, MS actually supported PC gaming properly, if they would still sell Sidewinder peripherals, if they had iterated and improved upon DirectX and especially DirectInput for peripherals and VR, if they cooperated and supported developers in making cutting edge PC sims, in other words if they actually gave a flying fuck (like fucking literally ).

So have you played it, or not?

Of course not. I'm a proud non-owner of that casual garbage pedestrian roadkill simulator. I'm not one of the 80 million flies.

Contrary to most gamers I have a spine and principles and do not suck Rockstar's schlong just cuz a console game they are porting two years late after copious amounts of carrot dangling and teasing has pretty graphics.

Fuck Rockstar and their contemptuous anti-PC gamer crusade. They are the most disgusting company in gaming in the way they treat PC gamers like lepers. Well, right after Microsoft at least.

GTA V was 40% off all week which still put it at about 35 cuz R* are greedy cunts. Sad to see it's a price where many idiot gamers will bite.
It's no surprise that publishers treat gamers like shit if gamers reward being treated like shit with millions of sales.

Certainly a very interesting, surprisingly non-generic setting and not lookin' ta shabby at first glance.

Too bad it's a Ubishit game and won't be playable for the first year on PC. The guaranteed piss-poor port coupled with the obligatory lame-ass season pass (*puke*) and other ripoffs and microtransaction lameness unfortunately makes this yet another wait-for-the-$10-GOTY affair. Fuck modern gaming publishers.

Let's face it. Episodic HITMAN was a stupid as fuck choice. Many people are like me and don't just play games because LOLZ FUN GAMEPLAY, and actually want a substantial experience; a good, moving story.

The last game was a motherfucking arcade game. "Here's your target and these are the possible ways to take them out. Find out how and be the ultimate assassin :D".

Fuck off.

^ this

They can shove their episodic MMO crap up their collective bungholes. It's good to see that the studio is reaping the devastating rewards of their stupidity. Good riddance.
And best wishes to everyone losing their job. May y'all find a new employer that isn't headed by a bunch of retarded amoeba.

Nowhere does that say " in-game footage" , so I am highly suspect it will look that good ...

Well, it does look pretty credible. For example, the tall, green grass in that scene where the guy gets shot is twitching in the same retarded spasms as the vegetation in The Witcher 3. Look at it. It does not sway gently and smoothly back and forth but it's totally exaggerated and retarded.
That part definitely looks like it is in-engine and using the same shitty physics implementation for the vegetation as The Witcher 3.

So why not implement a proper anti cheat system then, from all this money?

cuz you can sell 80 million without a proper anti cheat system and also without treating PC gamers with a minimum of respect so why not?
I'd maximize profits, too, if I were dealing with sheep and lemmings who throw money at my product even if I treat some of my customers as second class plebs and if I can so easily get away with zilch support.

Hahahaha the red-eyed troll is prolly laughing his ass off that people fell for his bullshit.

But come on guys... has there EVER been a free CoD weekend where single player or zombies was included? Right. So why should this one be any different?

The only free trials that I know of that let you play the entire SP campaign are some of the games that you can find on Origin under demos and free trial (e.g. BF4 where you can actually easily play through the campaign a couple dozen times in the 168 hours they are giving you).

They must think simmers are so desperate they'll take anything...and to an extent they're right

Yeppers. To a very large extent. X-Plane 11 still suffers from substantial weaknesses but will hopefully improve with time just as FSW here. Simmers (civi simmers at least) have mighty little choice.
It's either X-Plane or ancient FSX-SE or P3D (which isn't even legal to use for most people) or... yes, FSW now. That's it. And they all come with long lists of pros and cons.

The add-on market for FSX is still asking crazy prices (the default price for just about every larger add-on is $50) and there is often harsh DRM on these programs, too, while sales are very rare and only happen around the holiday season - if that (e.g. good luck waiting for a sale on Professional Flight Planner, it just doesn't budge at all).
So, yeah, the simmers are in fact desperate enough to take it up the a from all sides because there is so little choice.

Definitely no (single player) demo and/or no free (multiplayer) trial = no buy

You must not buy many games. Both these are becoming a rarity. Especially single player demos.

It depends on the game and storefront. As the other dude whom I referred to indirectly pointed out, most storefronts except Blizztard's fucking Shittynet, of course, have a refund policy so you can effectively demo the game (the Prey guys from Arkane even outright suggested using Steam refunds for a 2 hour demo).

Origin has some super-generous demos and trials of many of their games and a super-generous refund policy (demos/trials being a rarity is a myth of elitist Steam clowns who only use Steam exclusively but as I said even there you can get a 2 hour demo via the refund "workaround").

Only greedy fucking Blizztard doesn't have any of that, of course. That is why a free demo or trial is absolutely mandatory for this casual shit game.
Well, either that, or maybe they could catch up with the year of the lord 2017 and update their Shittynet client to include basic customer features like refunds. Just an idea.

Hard to get excited for anything Microsoft is doing/planning.

Yes, yes. I know. This is blues. M$ is evil, blah blah.

They're worse than evil. They are evil and retarded. That's the most dangerous combo there is.

And they have Phil Spencer, the overlord of lies, deceit, treachery and stupidity.

Microsoft (for PC gamers) is like when the shit hits the fan except it's more like a Brontosaurus pile of shit hitting an aircraft turbine. nowutimsayin?

I didn't get any the DLC yet, seems like mostly fluff.

Wrrrrrrrrrroooooonnnnngggg.

Ironically, the Beyond the Walls DLC seems to be the best part of HF2 if you go by the reviews.
The Freedom Fighter bundle ($11.99) including this DLC is only $2 more than the base game. Your loss, brah, unless you refund and buy the right product.
