Apparently 1 year EGS exclusive on PC, 30fps locked on console version.

Well. Looks like I'll be keeping my money then!

In my opinion 4 should never have been made. They should have knocked the Saints back down to almost nothing and made 4 a more traditional Saints Romp.

Once you started throwing superpowers into it for use at any time it just negated so much of the gameplay.

There's an equal number of people on the forums who are having no issues though. Including myself. And some of them run huge empires.

The guy who originally reported it fixed his issue...so I'm not sure what to tell you.

Give it a week or so then let us know. Avorion is just too fugly for me.

Yeah Avorion is what I like to call an ugly lego building game.

It is a different beast from X4. Anywho I just started my first playthrough and no issues so far. But it is still early.

Is it "safe" to pick this up yet?

Avorion? Yes
Mount and Blade 2? Yes
Anno 1800? Maybe
X3: TC? Definitely

Oh.. you were asking about X4? Hahahahahaa NO.

Mind you, it's even worse if you played Avorion. You can't go back to this aquarium simulator with space-ships then without feeling restricted and bound and confused and bored.. it's pretty, but it's boring to an absurd degree.

I guess the real question you need to answer is this, can you handle games that OPENLY and INTENTIONALLY were made to WASTE YOUR TIME with sometimes zero reward?

Not to mention bugs... just started with newest patch, took guild mission, saved, reloaded, suddenly I failed 1 of em out of nowhere (one of my ships undocked with NO ORDERS and destroyed a lockbox by looking at it) and the mission sequence (it was 1 of 4 missions) was gone.. completely GONE. No more missions from the guild mission system at all after that. Every reload reproduces this and this is a bug since the release of the game.

Really? I've been trolling the forums almost everyday since they started the beta of 3.0 and this is the first I've heard of this bug.

You must be really special to have triggered it.

Now if Epic starts publishing games from developers from the ground up. Awesome. I won't be buying them but that's good for Epic and doesn't involve pulling shitty moves by advertising on Steam and then not selling there.

That's exactly what this story is about. So why are you complaining?

Because that's not what they were doing before? Why are you making this so complicated?

Sigh. Steam, whether you like them or not, has done a lot for both consumers and devs to make PCgaming both better and more accessible. Some of these things seem trivial or not something you or I use....but they do push sales/units in other demographics, thereby helping devs and publishers. :
- Workshop
- Centralized patching / Optional versioning / Beta programs
- Centralized dev updates
- Centralized forums
- Cloud Saves
- DLC linking
- Shopping cart / Wishlist / Gifting / Social aspects
- Big Picture mode
- Controller support/emulation
- Steam Controller / Steam Link
- SteamVR
- Linux clients
- Hell...even the SteamBox was good for devs as a political move

Blizzard and EA don't offer most of that stuff either. Where's your outrage about all of their games not being on Steam?

Blizzard and EA don't claim to be acting in the interest of the developer and by extension the customer by buying out exclusives.

Blizzard only sells Blizzard games on Battle net. And EA has recently come back to Steam to sell Fallen Order. Also EA games are EA games.

I don't complain about games that are advertised from the start to appear on Epic...I simply do not pay any attention to them, It is a different matter when a game advertised on Steam suddenly gets pulled and appears on Epic store.

Now if Epic starts publishing games from developers from the ground up. Awesome. I won't be buying them but that's good for Epic and doesn't involve pulling shitty moves by advertising on Steam and then not selling there.

They'll then use these completely broken logic conclusions to determine that VR is terrible, since they can't even imagine that the headset and controls are absolutely key to making the game spectacular.


Maybe that right there is the whole problem with VR.

Those things don't matter and you're spouting heresy according to Slick and Redeye.

Really sorry to hear about your stroke Prez.

I guess we all think we're invincible until something like this happens.

I had a stroke a couple of years ago and it made me reevaluate my life. I hope you pull through this with minimal lasting effects.

Take care of yourself.

You forgot to mention the last thing they added a bunch of: new bugs.

Why you! Angry

Seriously though. That's why 3.0 has been a beta patch for so long. So they can fix bugs without having to worry about the main game.

Here's some insight into the design of the X games.

I wonder how Egosoft feels.. now that Avorion is out..and is just vastly superior in every way aside graphics....

Just fine. I'm sure Avorion is a great game but modular ship building was never what X was about.

If you look at the changelogs for 3.0 you can see they are huge? This will be a massive update of the base game and (just my opinion) make X4 one of the most solid space games on the market. It did take awhile to get there though.

Would that be a good time to finally pull the trigger on this? I've been watching and waiting for it to finally be ready enough to buy.

I've already bought it but I was waiting for 3.0 and Split Vendetta to hit before I play. The changelog for 3.0 is huge. They have really put a lot of work into it.

Even the old naysayers on the forums are excited. So I would say yes but you could just as easily wait for launch and I will give you my personal take on the actual gameplay.

Just a few things they have added in 3.0 are new weapons, new ships, new sectors. Also did a complete overhaul of the audio in the game including weapon effects. Also visual effects.

They updated the fleet command system and also...lots of stuff.

Oh also new missions.

And again. EGS has developers crunching 70 to 100 hour weeks and requiring hospitalization at the end of that.

How are they the good guys that gaming needs?

I find it funny that this is "news".

Glad so many are content to keep handing 30% over to a company that hasn't had an original game idea since the original Half-Life.

I mean, why would anyone want to use the storefront of the people who actually employ 10,000 game designers? Fuck those guys! I'd rather give billions to Gabe with the 30% tax so that he can reinvest that money properly, in his own private yacht collection. The rich get richer.

When will people see that Steam is a cancer on the gaming industry, not a saviour. You're willingly supporting a platform that diverts money AWAY from game developers. I have a lot of love for the people who sacrifice and have to put up with so much grind, hardship, and competition just to get the chance to work in gaming. I want them to get my money.

Fuck GabeN.

I find it interesting you can say that about a company that is so deep in crunch culture. Gotta get the next Fortnite shiny baubles out on time right? If a few game devs (which you claim to absolutely love and be supportive of) get sick and have to be hospitalized... Well those 70 and 100 hour weeks are worth it.

Epic is pure gold after all.

Man I've been on the edge of pulling that trigger forever. I am so tempted...but just so much to play. Pouting
