I'm calling that's exactly what they're going to do:

An X-wing vs Tie Fighter remake, with additional SP DLC campaigns modelled after if not completely copied from the original series.

First person, systems management and importance of briefings were already mentioned on their site.

Most ships have already been modelled. Story exposition can be done mostly in briefings , without mocap work. A lot of instructions can be done with modern ui and in-game voice.

Everyone has an analogue controller nowadays where analogue joysticks were a high price of entry for a single game in the nineties. Mouse control was iffy at best, even in shooters.

That's how X-Wing was lumped with niche flightsims, not because of any inherent complexity the game had over FPS's. Later Ace Combat proved it's mass appeal, and the X Wing series could have a lot less production value since the framework of the conflicts are already established.

Gen Zero today got a big needed QoL upgrade, and is good fun to goof around with friends in a sparse but charming open world with just the right sprinkling of jank. Well worth the sales price.

He probably thought one of the oldest gaming memes was appropriate to post on an old game thread. MoM predated SoF 2 by 8 years though..

One of the first levels in this game is a direct tribute to pne from Shadows of the Empire.

Yup. "Champion of Developers" Tim Sweeney's 'Epic store exclusive or bust' for small indies seems to be a lot more flexible to bigger devs / publishers he can't so easily extort.

Arcadish. I wished there were more games like Wings of Prey, for me the optimum in between arcade and sim.

How come there's tons of good car games between cartoon and hardcore sim, and flight has only either, and few as well ?

Racist gesture in Blizzard (OW) tournament: 3 match suspension. Support Hong Kong protesters in Blizzard (HS) tournament: 6 month suspension.

Every voice matters, just some matter more than others.

Shame nothing structural has been done about the game for about 5 years now. But that's why we have Mordhau now.

Very cynical of Torn Banner to post a Mea Culpa only after Mordhau became a runaway hit, showing where they went wrong. TB received clear feedback from their fans what needed doing (it's rare but does happen) but kept focussing on the wrong things:

  • cosmetic mtx
  • dumbing down of gameplay and splitting their fanbase with Chivalry Deadliest Warrior
  • reducing the importance of melee in 'sequel' Mirage Arcane Warfare

Now Mordhau fixed everything wrong with their game and sold millions, they're trying to win back the fans they publicly derided for their feedback on the forums before ? Better make sure Chivalry 2 is better than the last game you erased from your site because it bombed so badly, boys. You're going to need it.

First Trevor Baldree game I'll be giving a miss since Fate, just because of EGS.

No one can be as clueless as this guy by accident. I'm starting to think they kicked this hornet's nest with Sweeney on purpose to ride the pity wave for publicity.

Yup, yet more Borderland DLC. Sorry, seen it all after the 30th buds. Without any significant variations in gameplay or story (even Handsome Jack got old pretty fast) it's easy to give this a miss.

Claiming a vocal minority without numbers is useless, as is claiming people to be guilty without proof.

What idiot preorders anyway ? Not interested in the least in any hype unless a game has released, MW 5 is going to be jank, and I already played enough BL DLC's.

As for not buying Unreal Engine games, how much straw man can you bring into this. I have no problems with devs using UE withput EGS, especially not since they couldn't know Epic would come up with this shit when they started developing.

What is your actual point ?

I've seen no proof of actual threats other than those devs claims. Seeing the way they already behaved on their blog, reddit and discord, I have zero confidence in them not lying.

This from someone who had wishlisted Ooblets for a year and would just wait until the exclusivity period would have passed to buy on Steam, if these devs would just have handled things better.

If Epic wanted to be honest about being pro developer in any form, they should just start to be first party publisher.

Now they cherrypick products from developers letting them carry the risk until their product shows potential profit, let them carry the burden of going exclusive and breaking their crowdfunding promises, all for a measly minimal guaranteed sales. They're exploiting indie game devs big time this way.

If Epic had to front the cost of financing devs like other publishers do, carrying most of the risks from the start, they could not even afford a tenth of their current exclusive output. They're parasites plain and simple.

If anything announcing a delay and an exclusivity deal at the exact same time gives a big signal PG have problems getting the game out the door in anything near a finished state and are probably not going to survive launch without additional funds. Something they're just all too familiar with.

So basically two good reasons to wait the extra year for us.
