Most, sure, but are you denying that there's a very vocal portion that is exactly what he described?

Again, look at this board. I think many here would say they are gamers, or people that play video games.

For some, though, their identity is clearly "PC Gamer." Gamer is important, as is PC. They demand both be included in who they are. Those people will gleefully pretend no game is worthwhile unless it's on the PC, that the PC is objectively better than consoles for gaming, and that the PC version of a game is always better.

See: CJ Parker.

lol, he's got you dead to rights CJ

There were 2 articles in this post. One about an old guy calling PC gamers a bad name. And another about Star Citizen. Wasn't sure what to expect when I clicked the link. This is like the lead in to the perfect storm as far as blues comments go.

News Comments > King's Quest Chapter Four Next Week

I've played the 1st and 2nd chapter. After that I decided to wait until they were all out before playing any more. It's like 6-9 months between chapters so I found myself forgetting some of the finer details.

In any case, I found them quite good (though chapter 1 was definitely better than 2). This is the type of game Telltale should have been making instead of that interactive novel horseshit they've fallen in love with.

i5 6600K is the minimum? I'm sure processors from 2-3 generations ago will work, but it's unusual to list such a new and higher-end processor as the bare minimum.

My guess is that its a PR error. Figure an i5 from 4-5 years ago is the minimum. An i5 2500k would be the rough equivalent (faster) of the AMD 6350.

A friend of mine was playing on a 2500k, with a GTX 1080 (lol), said the framerate was unreasonably low. It's def playable though, but this is the first BF game on the "next-gen" engine. ie. This is the first BF game not released on the PS3, and XB360. So yeah, it takes it's toll. Bout time.

We played it on an i4770 w/ a GTX 780. There were no frame rate problems at 1080p. Might be a GTX 1080 driver issue with the beta, dunno.

EDIT: Wait. I'm thinking of the wrong game. Nevermind, never played this one on PC. I believe my boys played the beta on the XB1.

Verge is one of the worst for being a gaggle of apple fanboys. I wouldn't trust them to be very objective on anything they had to say on the iPhone.

<whispers> Why does Derek think we're all Star Citizen fans? There's like maybe 1 guy in 20 who are even remotely supportive that game on here, and I'm pretty sure that guy is me.

I guess we here at blues are going to have to stop defending star citizen then. Gonna be tough, since we are the largest group of supporters of that title.

You guys are hilarious. Here's the thing, I'll still be beautiful in the morning; but Star Citizen - which is never coming out - will still be shit and a massive scam. And you all will still be salty.

Me? I just keep on making games.

Guess he showed us! Cause blues is such a giant star citizen fanboy club.

Never leave this site, Derek. I don't know what we'd do without you. Probably pick on Cutter more. Yeah that's it.

I don't know if he's threatened to sue other developers but he has threatened to sue reviewers. Even (Streisand effect) this beauty, thereby surely becoming the first person to be described as having been convicted of bestiality to ensure he can't sue the accuser for libel.

(They added the petting zoo bit after being accused of libel and it isn't libel if it's obviously a joke ... and the rest of the review wasn't enough apparently.)

Off topic, but Lowtax's review of Darwinia is still the gold standard for me. I'll put up a link when I'm off mobile. (Blue, your site is shit on mobile)

EDIT:. Found it! But it's a review of a review. Scroll down, it's number 3.

Don't you just hate it when the energy readings go off the charts?

Absolutely,

but it's a reference to old analog measurement when the needle would actually go farther than the gauge would allow. You can have this in a digital form as well when you put a limit on your digital HMI and it would just read the maximum or error out.

Its poor dramatic writing but I'm still looking forward to this game.

This happens on my sons blood glucose meter, which has a digital display. However it detects glucose in a tiny drop of blood, it's incapable of detecting more than 33.3 mmo/l. The digital display can certainly display number much bigger, but the sensor cannot detect more than that. So when you see that number, it could actually be much greater.

BTW 33.3 is extremely high and not good, normal is between 5 and 7.

Anyway, some of his star citizen complaints do fall flat though. That's why I question his motives. He's chosen this game to take down amongst games that promised more, delivered less, costed more money, and took longer. While he has a competitive project to it too, it makes me raise an eyebrow. In one of his first SC rants he spent most of it talking about how Line of defense was better.

Really? Could you tell me what these other games that promised more are. It's not just someone promising more, its them taking multiplys of the value of a AAA game at release has a pre order, while still being far form even a point where they can realisticly tell you when their release window is.

And on top of that saying that it will not be a pay to win game when they are clearly pre-selling end game assits/goal now yet saying its not pay to win.

The amount of dodgeness and double talk and deciptiveness with this prodject is amazing.

Chris Roberts lies again and again. (while having his hand out)

Well Hello Games claimed in No Man's Sky that the sky color would be green sometimes b/c they altered the periodic table in a specific way such that light defracted differently.

But I get your point, I agree that few games have ever made the promises that SC has, absolutely. But it is Derek's only target, in an industry full of examples. For him, it's SC and only SC.

Well I've been in software development for about 20 yrs now so I know a thing or two. I wouldn't personally criticize any of Derek's work, I know from personal experience how difficult it is to make a production quality project. Especially when you're on a small team. On any of the indie projects I've been involved with in nearly every case the stumbling block is art assets.

We have a lot of engines available to us these days that handle plumbing and for the most part a programmers job is coding gameplay, interactions, that kind of thing. Unless you're getting into the nitty gritty you don't have to deal with the opengl stack anymore. But art assets will stop your game everytime. Even cheesy 16 bit'ish assets aren't brain dead easy.

So when people use texture fidelity as a complaint against his stuff, I sympathize. You need more artists than developers and they ain't cheap, believe me. I've yet to meet one who will work for free, but I have found one that works for free IT support

Anyway, some of his star citizen complaints do fall flat though. That's why I question his motives. He's chosen this game to take down amongst games that promised more, delivered less, costed more money, and took longer. While he has a competitive project to it too, it makes me raise an eyebrow. In one of his first SC rants he spent most of it talking about how Line of defense was better.

That said, I agree with the core of his stance. Roberts promised too much with too little and gave ridiculous deadlines. Like many of you, I put in a bit of money ($60), just out of the hope that he could pull it off. It's pretty clear now that he won't. It needs far too much time to get all the pieces working together, but mostly b/c they just have too much to build. 100 unique star systems? That's enormous. And I tried to make a 132 sq mile Wheel of Time mod for Oblivion, using towns accurate to the books. We finished the land mass, but once we realized how big our scope was, having to populate all those dozens of little towns, the project fell apart, team split it. He's not going to pull it off. At this point I'll settle for SQ42. It has the potential for a realistic scope at least. So there, I just said the core of everything Derek has been complaining about with SC. And I didn't need a hundred blog posts and twitter spamming to do it.

That is true. Right now with the 2.5 alpha you can already do everything in that gamescom demo except for the planetary landing.

That's patently false.

Besides the procgen planet, you also have a planet in the scene, and which you can target, landing on a planet, fps combat on a planet, driving on a planet, mission/quest giver, NPC dialog etc.

The whole thing was supposed to be a vertical slice, but which fell flat since it doesn't contain even 50% of what they promised for the game itself.

I have a list, but I'm on mobile atm so I don't have access to it. That Gamescom presentation was littered with R&D. And the only stuff in it - that's already in the game, are the fps and ship elements. Nothing else.

EDIT: Removed response cause I realized I was arguing with Derek Smart. But I'll just leave it at this. Derek, honestly, why do you give a crap? You have no longer have money invested in this game. There is literally no reason for you to give a shit. Don't stress about things that don't matter to you, you'll live longer.

I was just talking to a friend about this game right after the Gamescom footage hit Youtube. I told him, "They say late 2016 for a release, but I'm betting a million bucks that they announce a delay in the next 3 or 4 weeks. You can easily see by watching the video that there's NO WAY this game is anywhere near ready for release this year."

Called it.

To be fair the stuff at gamescom was for the 3.0 alpha, not the full release of the game. Its SQ42 that was supposed to have its first chapter in 2016, which is the delay mentioned in this article. None of SQ42 was demoed at gamescom
