Actually, it's a massive change.

I noticed some upgrade wonky-ness the other night. I shut down the computer then, the next morning, noticed it hadn't shut down and just popped back on at the login screen. Other than that, I didn't notice anything different.

Windows 8 was a nightmare for me. Half of my comps wouldn't get a clean install of it, so I kept having to go back to win7. Windows 10 has been pretty awesome for me... other than Saitek took way too long to get proper drivers out.

The statement follows by asking the community opinion and will not be implemented for at least six months. Not like they are nuking everyone outright...

When you launch the game, there are options for 32-bit Windows or 64-bit Windows, so they got it right. I think you are nitpicking at the press abbreviating.

Yeah, and you buy the game...there's no subscription.

Win10 upgrade is free, no? Not seeing an issue except to make the devs lives a bit easier.

Limited free to play:
-Most likely no cyno skills
-no transport skills
-no marketing/trade skills.
The above only affects us bitter veterans who wanted free accounts to move around the map easier

Meaning it's meant for people to get into the game, can do most things very well and effectively. It might actually generate more players in eve actually and give us bitter veterans more conflict and things to shoot at. So this could be a great time for Eve

They used to let you play for two weeks as a trial. It was good to figure out whether it was for you or not. I did four freebies in a row.

Also, I've heard that people can essentially play for free by selling ISK? Is that partly driving this?

I joined the penny arcade guild for a bit. They told me to get out to them...deep in 0 sec space, or whatever you call it. It was harrowing, but I made it. Some dude gave be several billion in credits to spend on upgrades. No biggie. Seems the people in that game are beyond rich.

News Comments > Spaceship Ahoy - Elite: Dangerous

I guess if you dogfight and get into circle strafing, that could be bad. But, if you do that in Elite, you'll die before you get motion sickness.

Eve: Valkyrie makes me sick, I'm working up my tolerance. But there's no refined flight mechanic, there's not even throttle just boost and brake. That leads to circle strafing enemies, flying through buildings, and madly looking around where the guy is that's shooting you. That's how one gets sick.

How is it with VR? Can you play for long sessions?

Yes! It's rated "Intense", but of the VR games I have it's the least nauseating...as in none.

My main gripe is that there's so much text and after awhile, it gets blurry. There used to be an outside app that would sharpen the text to fix this, but recent updates have killed the compatibility. It's kind of funny, my only solution so far is to actually lean in closer to the panel like you would in real life. Others have found changing the UI color to a cool blue instead of orange makes it easier to read.

The blur isn't that bad...I didn't even really notice it until a few weeks later. I was too busy looking at my virtual avatar controlling the joystick in-concert with my motions.

Flying an Anaconda through the mail slot is waaaaay easier in VR.

Anyone else notice that David Sarif's voice is off? It's like they replaced him with the most silly sounding voice actor I've ever heard of. Other than that and the weird lip syncing, this game is amaze-balls.

Edit: grammar.

And, this is my obligatory post, if you like fsp2, get diaspora. It's a total conversion, easy .exe/.msi install .. no hunting weird things down like to get fsp2 working.

Edit: It's a battlestar galactica conversion. It's awesome. Those that want more Freespace 2 look no further.

Please sell Freespace to someone

Freespace 2 was an AMAZING game. The multiplayer missions were so fucking good too.

They did, no? I thought I remember someone buying it. Maybe I'm dreaming.

Edit: the borderlands guys bought it yah? The ones who bought duke nukem.

I have strike suit zero, but it got crazy hard (yeah, I am terrible) so I couldn't continue past the 2-3 mission.

I'm in love with Rogue System. I'm totally copying it as a dev project, just started thinking that the internal systems are much harder than just having a ship fly a mission. Feature creep already...!

I'm curious. Been playing with the ue4 editor for awhile now...and the space flight sim game is *there*. Why has no one done anything? If you think of Freespace, it's rather simple, linear missions. Having the systems in place just strikes me as odd that no one has done anything.

Ew. This has a very Teen Titans Go vibe. That show is awesome, by the way, but it should never cross paths with Mass Effect.

Fuck Clayfighter. I remember that game when I was a kid. That was one of my first experiences of a bad game.

They seem to be making progress on SC. It seems significant patches come out every few weeks with more and more systems. Yeah, I know the "game" has yet to come out (in any of its fractured parts), but it's hardly vaporware.
