Bet the judge would have been more lenient if there were a Half-Life 3.

Hmm. So after downloading this huge thing it took ten or so minutes to load only to run at about 5fps. And now the game froze in front of the ship retrieval console. Grrrrreat.
Okay, good to know. Nothing has changed.

Average frame rates now are in the 40's to above 60's at times. Not sure what happened with that guy's session.

Interesting So is it a good game or what?

I don't know, but the soundtrack "AirMech" by Front Line Assembly is amazing.

I felt more sorry for killing the poor monkeys in Mass Effect to try to find a piece of Geth tech that they'd stolen.

Uhm, I'm not sure how to break this to you, so I'll just come out and say it - you don't have to kill the monkeys to find the tech in that mission.

It'll be ok... I'm sure their souls forgive you.

I wouldn't say the whole thing rides on the single twist. There's some subtle elements like, EDIT -- nm, even while trying to be vague I felt like I was saying too much.

To anyone checking this out - just pretend you're playing Mass Effect's second cousin (twice removed and it's mother's side) to get over the standard, 3'rd person shooter mechanics (I felt they did mix up the environments you fight in well enough). The story is what caries this one.

I mean it is still Zero Punctuation, but I don't think he had sounded that into a review game since Skyrim.

I don't hate all the games he hates, but I like all the games he likes.

Waiting for GOG version in a couple weeks. Games like this are going to get more and more rare, so I want to support them.

Is that confirmed? I'm definitely picking this up (I'm seeing a lot more positive vs a 'mixed' ratio of reviews, as some are stating). GoG > Steam in my purchasing hierarchy.

Edit - Confirmed:

Speak for your self dude. I was skeptical of this game when it inflated a few years ago, but at this point I'm witnessing what to me seems to be a true PC game coming to life (yes, slowly).

I get all the skepticism stemming from the ship sales, but that -is- a means to fund a game of this magnitude without a publisher. You can buy a $45 package and be done with it.

Flying around the PU and seeing the weekly updates one can see where it's heading and I like it.

If I'm reading him right, right now the engine is loading ALL objects into client memory at FULL detail, no matter how far or whether they're even in view? :o

: )

From what I understand, what's bogging down the game mainly is your local client is updating the position of every moving object no matter where it is. Every player, every ship, every npc (which is one thing I think dragged the SQ42 demo down), etc.. The developers said one of the biggest frame killers is when a large ship full of cargo explodes, because of all of the debris (ejected cargo).

Once they have local clients only updating their close regions of space things should improve.

For those interested, here's the SQ42 demo with commentary from the team. I'm only 10 minutes in, but it's already pretty insightful.

This was my favorite game of the year. Gameplay mechanics aren't out of this world (but still fun), -everything- -else- -about- -it- is excellent, however.

I'm not saying Transformers: Last Knight was good. It was a dumb, dumpster fire of a movie, yes. But. The effects involved in the final battle, which lasted quite a while melted my brain in IMax 3D when I saw it.

Also, original Pacific Rim was awesome. It was cheesy in all the right ways.

This trailer..eeeeeeh. That sense of scale they had with the mecha in the original seems to be lacking. Looks more like Power Rangers.

Yep, and word is, Chesko himself is making this mod. This whole creation club nonsense is just weird.

Was never updated for the 64bit version, because SKSE doesn't work in 64bit.. mhh, makes you wonder doesn't it...

Nope, I used it shortly after the SE release.

Will use the Vulkan rendering API, nice. X has the potential of being very CPU intensive. Makes this a good move.

I too think the graphics look a step down, but I believe that's just it's early development state. Everything looks too clean, and lacking texture detail.

Half-Life was the game that showed me video games could be just as powerful a medium as a book or a movie, and this is how it ends.

I'm actually appreciative of this leak. At least it's some form of closure for the series (haven't read it yet, will have to do so later).
