I stopped my playthrough of the base game thinking that the new skill revision would be out by now. Going to jump back in and start playing again.

You think all free to play games are spyware, or do you have a specific complaint against this game?

He's just a troll. Don't feed him and he'll hopefully go away.

Well I started to ask myself: "What does procedural generation give you?"

A hundred million systems all of slightly different configurations. And procedurally generated ships without direction are just not all that sexy.

If he had concentrated on making a more standard game with SOME procedurally generated elements...maybe he wouldn't be in this state. But...that's life.

It did NOT come out of nowhere. They had a long video last year and detailed a lot of the game systems. And then another shorter one showcasing the station builder.

They didn't do lot of public advertising but it was not a 'OMG sudden thing!". I'm not saying that it will be good but please at least think before you open your mouth to talk about it.

You misunderstand what I'm saying. The GAME didn't come out of nowhere, it was announced like four years ago. The RELEASE came out of nowhere. Last we'd heard they were still in Alpha.

Oh I gotcha now. I think that 4 years is their turn around time. But at least this engine isn't new to them and they seem to have made some steps forward. They still have two months left to finish up and ship something worthwhile. I'm cautiously optimistic.

...I'm quite a bit worried that this is a "Shit, we're out of money, let's just release it before the Xmas period!" move.

It definitely seems like this is the case, considering, like you said, this launch came out of nowhere. I fully expect the game to be a buggy mess that doesn't perform very well at launch. At least I know that they will continue to patch the game well into the future (as long as they have enough funds).

One thing I don't understand is why they put additional development effort into being able to walk around space stations and ships. As far as I remember from X Rebirth, the space station gameplay was by far the most hated part of the game. Now in X4 they mentioned being able to stealthily infiltrate stations in order to steal technology. What X fans really care to do this? This is a spaceship sim, not a stealth game. I would have preferred if they got rid of walking around space stations entirely and focused development elsewhere.

It did NOT come out of nowhere. They had a long video last year and detailed a lot of the game systems. And then another shorter one showcasing the station builder.

"Fly every ship!"

Yes, they can be taught.

This should be playable in six months or so.

I have an inkling that they took their time to do it right this time. Don't take my word for it though.

This doesn't really seem, conceptually, all that much different than Hacknet and the Hacker series of games.

At least Hacknet teaches you some valuable Linux commands.

Wow. Too close to home! No thanks...

So, uh, does this game really teach you how to pick up wimmenz?

Asking for a friend.

It's a campy, tongue-in-cheek, silly game drawing from the same well as Leisure Suit Larry did many years ago with another generation. So no, not really.

As a bonus, I'll let you in on the secret to pick up any wimmen:

1. Be attractive.
2. Don't not be attractive.

Considering how many unattractive men I see with girlfriends, I'd say that's not really relevant advice. It's far more important for women to be attractive - men are absolutely the more shallow sex.

Is there money involved? Sorry...could not resist!

What always struck me as odd is how Genestealers claws act like power weapons in the 40k fluff. How do they explains this in the fluff because I don't think one Genestealer should be able cut through terminator armor like if a power weapon was used.

That's kind of the point. They wouldn't be this vulnerable if they had room to fight. But the hallways of the hulks are the worst enemy of the Terminators.

And yes, the genestealer claws can cut through Terminator armor.

Why the hell is Nier: Automata on that list? Did they finally fix the PC port? Last I checked it's been only second to that Arkham game as far as abysmal PC ports go... but at least they eventually fixed the Batman game...

No they didn't. Not for mouse and keyboard players they didn't.

This is all plain stupid. Purchase of the game is still the main thing and should be controlled by parents.

The whole thing is still predicated on children having access to credit cards and other methods of payment that should be in the hands of their parents. And that in itself is way worse because your children can buy just about anything with that kind of freedom.

Including a flamethrower!

So these children have unfiltered access to their parents' credit cards or paypal accounts?

Because if so, then you have a lot bigger things to worry about than Steam games.

I'd only want to see a Supes game if you could punch people through buildings and stuff, throw cars at them, etc.

Maybe Aquadude? Underwater adventure summoning the beasties of the deep to your aid?

Flash game could be fun. Always loved bombing around with superspeed in CoH.

Maybe something different like Lobo or Dr. Fate would be sweet.

Dr Fate would be sweet but how would you define his powers??
