I haven't played enough NMS to really talk about how innovative the ideas were, but I will say this: Innovation doesn't mean fun, or polished, and it can fail to live up to promises. An awful game can have great new ideas.

I fail to see the innovation in creating procedural planets and lifeforms with the small number of variations discovered thus far for each one. They are all too similar -- great ideas, sure, but they were executed very poorly.

Heh. Is this the first time a company has killed their official servers in favor of user-hosted servers? Usually it's the other way around :)

7500 private servers. 7499 are pirated copies.

Anyone remember THIS MTG game from the '90s?

That was 20 years ago. 20 years of sitting on their asses and never taking a real stab at what could have been with digitizing this game. Never a second thought given to a true MTG online experience. And no, half-assed poorly executed attempts don't count. The best MTG games were the Duels of the Planeswalkers series, except you could only fuck with pre-made decks with a fraction of the total cards in the universe. Not to mention they were more focused on a "call of duty" strategy where they can re-sell the same product every year, instead of building THE definitive online experience with all the collecting and dueling in one place like Hearthstone.

20 fucking years.

I'm honestly amazed that it took Blizzard so long to beat them at their own game, or that no one else did earlier. Mojang's "Scrolls" was a better game IMO than either Hearthstone or MTG, but Microsoft killed that. Paid +$2 Billion for 2 games, decided to focus on one, and just ignore the other. "New game from the creator of Minecraft!" - advertisement no one ever produced.

Yes...unfortunately.

I don't understand why this was crowd funded in the first place. The Kickstarter that went live in 2012 said they had investors that would be picking up the tab for the entire development of the game.

"We have investors that have agreed to contribute the balance we need to complete this game as long as we can validate that there is a demand for a high end PC space game. By meeting or surpassing our target on Kickstarter you tell the world that you want a PC based Space Sim and allow us to make this game."

So...why all the money grabs with selling spaceships? This is the biggest smoke and mirrors show around!

The community has had an enormous impact shaping the game and it's always interesting watching the weekly videos and being able to meet the developers at events.

Right, shaping the game...spaceship sale after spaceship sale.

"We only ever refer to our Anti-Tamper solution as being ‘hard to crack’, never ‘uncrackable,’" Goebl told Gamasutra in response to a question of whether or not game piracy could ever really be stopped.

The word "solution" implies you've solved the piracy problem with your software entirely...which you have not. All your software does is make it harder for legitimate consumers to use someone else's product they paid for.

Anti-tamper solution vs. Piracy solution = two very different things.

I beg to differ. Right from the Denuvo website:

"Our latest innovation, Denuvo Anti-Tamper, allows publishers to reap the benefits of stamping out all piracy attempts in the crucial first weeks of a title’s release."

Sorry to say, if your game is popular enough, people will just wait until Denuvo is cracked -- they won't shell out money they never would have spent anyway.

Additional Notes: System requirements to be announced soon.

Can't even bother to publish your recommended system specs two days before release? Bwhahahaha, I'll pass.

Better hope that rootkit got uninstalled though. Most of them don't uninstall well.

In this case, the Capcom.sys driver in your C:\Windows\System32 directory was the offending file, so it is very easy to determine if the issue has been corrected.

Not quite sure what you are complaining about. People are criticizing Blizzard for making a meaningless, cosmetic change and treating it like a big press event. I don't think anyone thought the service was going away.

As someone said, this is mostly the CEO thinking he is doing something productive -- and even though he isn't I'm sure he will get credit for being productive garnering a bonus worth many millions...

Don't like "Blizzard tech"? Great! You'll probably never hear it except as an off-hand reference deep in an interview about backend technical improvements for a new game/major patch!

So I'm still going to have my Battle.net desktop application? No, it will be renamed to Blizzard Tech or something even more retarded.

Digital Fucktards figure that they better get their lawsuits in before Congress passes that bill that makes it illegal.

That legislation only prevents companies from including "gag clauses" in customer contracts, which gives the customer the freedom to leave a negative review of the services rendered if they choose to do so. However, if you are leaving untruthful or fake reviews in an attempt to damage that company, they can still sue you for defamation whether it be slander or libel.

I'm just tired of this new trend of reintroducing 5 to 10 year old games. Rockstar should be announcing RDR 2, no?
3. RDR 3.

Technically, the first game in the Red Dead series was called Red Dead Revolver. Then came Read Dead Redemption. A third game in the series might not have "Redemption" in the name at all.

It's a great game... for me to poop on!

But seriously, for having literally zero expectations and never seeing any evidence of the game that so many seemed to think it was going to be (I guess my bs meter is so strong that I don't even consider the prerelease info to be bs), I am having a good time. 20 hours so far, and it's easily worth 30$. I'm interested in whether or not they can improve the game and make it something a little more than the fractal explorer it mostly is.

Despite being critically underwhelming and disappointing many fans, for some reason it is still doing quite well on the charts. So I hope they take their profits and do something worthwhile with them. There is a strong base her if they focus on gameplay. Maybe in a year it can be worth 60$

Too bad they don't show you refund charts in addition to sales charts. Everyone I know has purchased the game on Steam, myself included, played for less than two hours, then refunded the game. My PS4 counterparts are left going WTF while we point and laugh at them.

It is slightly disturbing to see them playing this is a controller on the PC though instead of mouse/keyboard and flightstick.

100% guaranteed to be on consoles after release. You don't invest in something this grand and put all your eggs in one basket - meaning the PC. Even though Chris Roberts denies it will ever be released on consoles, you don't spend this much time, money, and effort for a single platform. Plus, Chris Roberts' ego means he wants as many people as possible to experience his vision.

It's weird that no one calls Stan Lee out for being an egotist and I'm sure he wedges himself into all his movies, Tarantino too maybe?

Terantino is probably the most annoying person in Hollywood but I'm always thirsty for his movies... except Kill Bill. Couldn't stand that shit.

Stan Lee doesn't put himself in *his* movies, that's not as bad. That feels more like the film makers paying tribute to someone they admire.

Tarantino, yes, definitely. Worse than Kojima.

Actually, up until Guardians of the Galaxy, Stan Lee said he would only do cameos for the properties he had a hand in creating as noted below:

"Yet, interestingly enough, Lee used to abide by a rule regarding his cameos, only appearing in properties in which he had a hand in creating. This explained his notable absence from 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine and 2013’s The Wolverine. However, that all changed with his cameo in last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which occurred despite his misgivings over not knowing the team. With Civil War, his streak for appearing in every movie made by Marvel Studios will remain intact."

So, he is a bit egotistical if you ask me, but sounds like that is starting to change.
