Why doesn't he just use C#? Or one of the relatively easy to use and readily available engines that's out there. The trouble with making your own programming language is when you try to hire people for your company. There will be exactly zero people with experience.

Just like the original game by David Braben.

Correct.

So I dabbled a little bit during the first year of release.... anything to bring back old players who were bored or frustrated?

There's definitely more variety since the first year but the core of the game is largely unchanged. You're still doing procedurally generated missions that reward a little bit of money. And you use that to buy a better ship and modules. Repeat. If it didn't appeal to you then, I'm not sure it will now.

There's still no story, no engaging missions, no people to care about, no direction. You just wander about, doing random things.

Win 7 isn't out of official support yet from MS lol

Mainstream support has, but yes extended support will continue until Jan 2020. Though that's less than 2 years from now. So it's coming up. Most of their users are on Win10 already anyway.

Solo should be single-player content! It' SOLO not DUO after all.

Yup. Blue got me with the title. Was excited about single player but nope.

It has single player content.

The problem with this plan is when you survive and end up with bad health, extreme debt, or both...

Oh I won't survive. I'm not making 70, so I don't care about debt either

win 10 exclusive, pass.

Windows 7 is on it's 9th year. Might be time to go die on another hill.
Not sure I'm ready for the exploitation 10, so far it's been mostly all bad news. By the time most of the security companies find all the backdoors it will probably be too late. Not to mention, has there really been any significant technological advancements? Or (no offense intended) do you just subscribe to the idea of buying/free updating it because it's the newest offering?

The exploiting that Win10 does is a tinie tiny fraction of the exploiting that your smartphone, facebook, google do. All Windows knows about me is the game that I play. My smartphone knows every thing. So no, not I'm not scared of Windows. Nobody tried to exploit it to fuck with the last election, nobody cares. Besides if you think Win7 is safer, you're kidding yourself.

If u wanna keep using 7, knock yourself out. But the whole "Win10?!?!!? FUCK THAT!" It was released 3 years ago, that's almost an entire console generation. The trope is old. But I guess, this is blues. Home of the neckbeards.

My wife's grandma was at the point where she was sad when she woke up every day and was still alive. She wasn't in pain or had to be confined to a bed all day or anything like that. It was just that everybody she knew, outside her family, were dead. Her husband died 10 years ago, she outlived all her friends, 4 of her children and several grandchildren. She was just tired, and done with it all.

That's why I plan to die suddenly and in a massive heart attack. Poutine FTW!

What SJW bullshit?

There was a female with a sniper rifle in that trailer, and she was a person of color, too. That's all it takes for Cutter. Is there a character that isn't reflective of how Cutter sees himself? Then the game is SJW bullshit!

If you wanna see a ton of Cutter clones. Go read the WCCFtech comments sometime. Full of garbage like that. There were a few guys pitching a fit about the new Tomb Raider trailer, after some questioning it basically came down to her not looking enough like a whore.

Can't read Cutter's post b/c I've blocked him years ago, but otherwise it's like Infowars comments in here. Time for more blocking!

I get that they're "brand building" and all of that, but I feel strongly that rendered trailers just take away resources from making the game.

Typically pre-rendered cutscenes like this aren't done inhouse, they just farm this stuff out. But if it was there probably wouldn't be much overlap. The bulk of changes with this patch were improving existing systems.

I loved that crazy Blood Dragon DLC that Far Cry 3 got, so this sounds exciting. I skipped FC4 and Primal so the main game will be less repetitive for me as well.

Couldn't get past the whole guy in the pink suit thing either huh?

Is that supposed to be a list of EA studios closing? Bullfrog was bought and shuttered by Microsoft, no?

No that was Lionhead.

Both were Molynaux though, right?

Think there's some nostalgia coloured glasses on a lot of folks. The original series weren't actually very good movies. They were predictable, cheesy, had some very uneven acting and after the prequels, had the worst dialog in cinema. But it was a cool universe and I'm a fan of that.

The three Disney movies that we've had are considerably better, on every single metric, than the originals. And leaps and bounds better than the prequels. You can argue with me about that, but you know I'm right. I mean, come on.

Was this the game that used to be a SP game and is being rebuilt as a Destiny clone? Or am I thinking of something else

The only thing that could've saved the prequels was the supposedly planned Jar Jar Sith Lord story. That would've made it far more interesting and 10x better. But they threw it away cause Lucas was timid about Jar Jars reception, apparently.

I've heard that theory, if true I wish they'd have gone through with it. If executed well it could have been great.

Well, sure. It's mined on Crait which is covered with the stuff.

GTFO, Bundy...I...I don't even...

=-Rigs-=

Nope. Sorry Rigs. Fantastic universe, but not very good movies. I know that they're ancient and small budget and all that, but compared to the 3 new ones they're awful. I'm a super nerd so I love all things Star Wars, but "I was going to go to the Toshi station and pick up some power converters!" Really?

But I'm not here trying to convince anyone. I'm said my peace.

How about coming out with a decent single player Star Wars game for once?

Doesn't look like it'll happen. EA seems to be shutting the door on SP games. Not enough money in it for them. Hoping that the BF2 failure will change some minds, but I doubt it.
