I've sinked in ED more time then most games in past 12 months, having a blast with it and consider buying into alpha good value. Game will be 50-60$ at launch so no point faffing about, if it's too much now just wait for release and be glad this is a proper alpha/beta process, they keep changing game based on testers input and that means better game at launch. So what's the problem?
Btw, hows that X55 Spectral? I was going to get it for ED as well but it's still out of stock down under. I even considered getting TM Warthog but it's on a pricey side

I know I'm not Spectral, but I'll give my impression.
I was pleased to load up the Elite Dangerous Beta this morning and find that it had FULL support for the X-55.
This joystick is fucking awesome, that is all I can say, the stick and throttle both feel great in dogfights. It took a tiny bit of getting used to the throttle work and Horizontal/Verticle thrust (set to a thumb hat style control on the side of the throttle) but once I got used to it, it became really easy to be hot shit at the controls. The first time I did a little corkscrew in a head on run with an enemy to dodge a missle using a little bit of rotation and horizontal thrust I was in love.

If you're like myself and plan on also playing Star Citizen and Valkyrie I think it was well worth the 200 dollar investment.

Any Bluesnewsers play this?

its like a much better version of left4dead, imho... same waves of AI dumbshits, but it has various objectives and other map oriented stuff to do.. and the theme is much more enjoyable to me

also, if you can organize a group of friends together, and spec out your guys with all stealth stuff (you can respect at any time for cash, which is super plentiful), then the game takes on a whole other dimension - trying to complete heists and jobs without getting caught or alerting anyone, etc.

i paid full price on launch day, i definitely got my moneys worth .. put over a hundred hours in so far

however i still think it would be way way better as full MP, with players on each side - thats why that new BF game is interesting to me ... personally the tanks and jets and AA and boats and massive vehicles are my least favorite part of BF by far, in fact id much rather play giant maps with 30+ people in standard urban settings with car chases and ziplines and c4 and all that - really, i dont give a fuck about the military shit.. unfortunately the whole bf4 fiasco doesnt really instill a lot of confidence they could pull it off very well - but the idea of that kind of cops/thieves open-map objective type game is really cool imo

Just remember Hardline is Visceral, not DICE. Not that it should instill more confidence but Visceral was a great company before, so we'll see.

I may have to download that Rise of Flight just to have something to actually give the stick a good try.

I have looked at the DCS games on steam before and they simply just offend me with their prices. 20-50 dollars per plane module? They can eat a big fat one.

What does each plane include? The Steam page for F-15C: DCS says there's a new campaign but what does this actually mean: new map, new era, new era appropriate AI units? Or half a dozen scenarios based on existing maps?

Wings: Over Flanders Field is very good. It's a WW1 simulation built on CFS3, although except for needing CFS3 to install it you wouldn't know it. Perhaps this means it has poor support for modern joysticks.

I considered that Thrustmaster HOTAS but I don't like the idea of cheap HOTAS - I went with a mid-range single stick for the same price and I'm pleased with the Mad Catz / Saitek FLY5. Best trim control I've ever used excluding real aircraft.

The discussion had nothing to do with the sim quality or accuracy. Just the absurd price for the series. Take your unwarranted anger elseware.

I don't think they are that expensive but I know they are not cheap.
I think the bundles that includes a few planes or helicopters are going for $50 individual planes or helicopters are like $15.
It is still not cheap but it is more in line with all the other games that are setup this way like iRacing for example where each car or track costs $12 or so.
DCS is the ultimate sim for planes and helicopters, the amount of detail those guys put into that game is just insane, and no other game comes close to it.

There are other games out there too like X-Flight or IL2-Cliffs of Dover.
Cliffs of Dover apparently is a pretty good game with the mods.
World of Warplanes if you are into pay2win games.

I don't think they are that expensive but I know they are not cheap.

This........says alot about some gamers today...holy Cowboy

Oh believe me I know a guy on Steam who owns ALL of the DCS stuff, it's easily a couple hundred bucks. I'm just not willing to pay that much for a good flight game.

And in response to Spectral. I have Cliffs of Dover, on disc and on steam, and installed all the patches, the game still wouldn't work properly with the X-55 correctly. The throttle actually worked but the best I could do is get to fly in circles even after trying to recalibrate the joystick several times.

I just chalk it up to the stick being new and nothing supporting it yet. I fully expect Elite, Citizen and Valkyrie to support it though which is why I went ahead and got one.

Actually, about 80% of it is about how awesome Elite:Dangerous looks.

I'd have more interest in that game if their ship design wasn't boring as fuck. I don't want to fly a trapazoid wedge through space.

However I need something to try my X-55 Rhino with, it came last week and has just been sitting here. Tried it with IL-2 Sturmovik but it took like 5 fan made patches just to get the damn game to work in a broken state. So that was a failure. I tried Freespace 2 as well, where the stick side worked, but it doesn't recognize the throttle side. So I really don't know what to try it with at the moment.
Not all the ships look like that, only the starter ones, which you can upgrade from quiet quickly anyways. Plus there is no external view during flying so you only see your ships cockpit anyways.

As for the Rhino mine was just delivered and it sits on my desk next to me at work.
Arma uses it as well as all the DSC games. I believe Rise of flight also can be controlled with it.
You can try RoF for free here:

Who cares, the game has been out over a year.
Anyone who plays the game with any sort of regularity has all the attachments for every weapon they like already.

Why should it matter to you if people want to cough up money for in game items if they suck or can't play as much as other people?
Does it hurt you in some way?
Does it affect your game?
Nope, sure doesn't. Cause when it all comes down to it they still die to the same bullets as everyone else in game.

They already did this with Mass Effect 3 anyway, in case you missed the memo.

Who is this really? There has to be some personal agenda but I can't even think of another game that stands to lose if Star Citizen wins... Maybe the folks at CCP? It sure looks like a ton of eve players are looking to find a new home in Star Citizen...

So weird.

I'm still curious how he came to the decision that Freelancer was Vaporware.
I distinctly remember it being released, and playing it. And it still being one of my favorite games to this day.

They make their games to large with to many options and to many maps.

Oh, and I don't have premium, so the game isn't even playable anymore....can't find servers.

*slowclap

Ill go back to BF3.


There are plenty of non-map pack servers. I know this well as we play with a friend who didn't buy premium. And if you have no problems finding a server in BF3 then clearly you must have bought the map packs for it. So this is a silly cop out.

looks like they are going all crazy now... at the end you can see a floating, flying remote controlled mini-gun

I have BF4, but its more like Bloatfield 4 now. Its hard enough to find Rush servers, since rush mode was poorly done in this iteration. Most servers don't bother running the 3rd expansion pack maps, so its hard to find servers for those too.

That's because Rush was purely designed for Bad Company 2 with the maps specifically designed for it and smaller servers. There are very few maps designed around Rush for BF3 or BF4 because Battlefield has always been known for Large Conquest, Rush was a Bad Company thing, so I never expected it to be that great.

I don't see where the game is bloated, I like having options to choose my own playstyle. As fun as the GAMEPLAY in Titanfall is the one thing it lacks is options which cuts down on it's replay. In Battlefield I almost never get bored, I just switch class or focus on doing something different.

As buggy as BF4 is it's still the most fun I'm having on the PC right now with a group of friends. Battlefield Friends explains it well

In short, MS got caught up in its own hubris and they realize it now. And as much as it may gall them to swallow their pride and admit they were wrong - which they'll never do anyway and just call it a "readjustment" or some such marketing BS - they pretty much have to or it's all over but the crying.

Which is totally ironic, considering how hobbled the PS3 launch was by price, hubris, and their various comments (people will work extra to buy a PS3, Trenton saying he'll pay money for people finding a ps3 in stock, etc)...

I can only hope that sony remembers the hard lessons learned...


They did remember, hence the PS4

Stop trying to Cutter-up the conversation due to a reading comprehension problem and implementing red herrings.

Do you deny the existence of exosuits? Optic camouflage? Devices that allow climbers to adhere to specific surfaces?

What are you smoking? Show me one exoskeleton that does one of those things. We had jet packs in the 50s and they still haven't changed. We've had robots since then too and even for the ones that can walk it's just barely. You're on fucking crack if you think HALO style powered armor suits are going to be showing up anytime soon. You're the one with comprehension problems. Reality comprehension.

Just playing devil's advocate here. As I could care one shit about the COD series... but:
http://youtu.be/p2W23ysgWKI this is the HULC exoskeleton.
And you can easily search YouTube for many different versions of adaptive or optic camouflage that are in development.

The arguement isn't whether these things can do what they say they can RIGHT NOW, it's whether the technology can advance to be able to do those things 40 years from now. Which unless every military scientist on the planet becomes braindead is more than possible to happen.

Fourty.... Years.... not "Anytime soon"

Edit: Also after watching the trailer of the game on Steam, with the exception of the 1 or 2 guys who have the Crysis-style suits on. All the other soldiers with "Exo Skeletons" are more or less wearing the HULC Exsoskeleton, arms and leg braces. Elysium style more or less.

Thanks Fromsoftware.
Another 50 dollar disappointment I get to try to forget.

The reviews for this game lied.

If you ever had the expectation they'd be completely redesigning the movement and combat to work well with KBM, then you're pretty out of touch. Customizable keybinds is the most you were going to get out of this, a game designed for controllers from the ground up. It's not an issue of port quality, it's base game design that is not compatible with your stubbornness. It's not a PC game, deal with it. I, on the other hand, am ecstatic to have a fantastic console game available on a platform that provides vastly improved graphical fidelity and performance out of the box.

Anyway, yeah, I'm playing at 19x12 and still have the black bars. I don't know if you can get rid of that even with the DSfix guy's new tool, but you should be able to configure it for any custom resolution you want.

Most of us are PC gamers, and I expected a PC game. Especially with all of the (Now Obvious) blatent lies that more development time went into the PC port. As much as everyone hates Gearbox around here, you could take the difference between Borderlands 1 and 2 on PC as a fine example. They didn't need to reinvent the wheel, just show the PC gamers the respect they deserved in the UI and Control department. That is hardly a challenge to accomplish correctly.

In Short
I'm glad you're happy with your Console game. However I paid for a game on PC and expect a PC experience. They're shills for lying to the fanbase outright. Period. No matter how happy YOU are with the game.

I was hoping it would be something like hearthstone where you go head to head against another human but this is all AI?

Researching...oh wait, no it is multipayer. Cross platform even! Plus the pc version mentions they just added dreadnaughts and stormboyz! Sold.

This seems like a game I can squeeze in with 10 min like Hearthstone.

Why would you give them money for this fucking crap?

"I suck at the game and im going to cry hacks." That's all I got out of the last few posts. Keep making up excuses for yourselves. There will always be someone better than you. Especially people who have been playing COD for years and are already used to the aiming mechanics in this game because of it. Get over it. I place in the top 3 almost 75% of my games played (this is a stat you can look up in game BTW) and probably about 30% of those placings were MVP. In all that time I have MAYBE been suspicious of ONE person for hacking. But apparently you guys run into them regularly. I find that incredibly difficult to believe.

If you don't like the game. That's fine. Don't like it. But dont make up bullshit like "everyone else is hacking" because you suck as a reason to give to other people. Its pretty pathetic. And this isn't the only game I've seen people do this with here. Just stop.

Rumor on Twitter is that the sales numbers are disappointing? I'm not sure. I didnt like the beta but I had hoped it sold well.
I'm sure it has NOTHING to do with it being an EA release, maybe gamers are actually starting to speak with their wallets.
As curious as I am about this game, those 2 letters are stopping my purchase.

If the numbers are disappointing, I more place it on EA's poor decision to make it Microsoft Exclusive. PS4 is clearly the better selling system. Why you would go with exclusive to Microsoft is beyond my scope of comprehension. Microsoft had to offer them a hell of a fucking lot of money to offset the loss of sales they are missing by not being cross platform. Because not only are they missing the PS4 (Better selling next gen platforms sales) but the PS3 sales as well, which a lot of people had switched to, and which had caught up to and bypassed the 360 in sales by the end of the generation.

I hope they're taking that big bag of money Microsoft once again handed over to someone knowing that Sony had them over a barrel into their profits.

Well, you're kind of calling things in hindsight, as this deal was almost definitely made at least 18 months ago, so unless you knew in 2012 that the PS4 would outsell the XBone...

And as for the PS3 catching up in the end, the 360 sold far more games. And, given that this is basically a CoD game and aimed at the CoD fan, which platform do you think sold significantly more CoD games?

Not really hindsight, Titanfall being XB1, 360 and PC exclusive was not a decision made 18 months ago. At least as far as Respawn knew. They didn't find out about it till after E3 this past year, neither did anyone else. In fact during E3 the way Respawn was talking about it was that it would be on Playstation as well, little did they know apparently. Which was a big deal.

And it wasn't really difficult to predict PS4 would be the better selling system because Microsoft had already lost touch and lost ground by the end of last generation. Long before their E3 blunders.
