So basically Crytek doesn't believe the game will ever come out so no need for a lawsuit.
But last year they thought it would come out, whats changed.

What's changed?

Anyone with a brain now knows that SQ42 will likely only be 'completed' when CIG needs a desperate cash infusion. Until then they will fiddle away most of their time on SC and it's ever expanding feature/ship creep.

Chris Roberts only functions when he has someone with an EXTREMELY firm hand forcing him to finish a game. Otherwise the development will just go on and on, ad nauseum.

I've been around long enough to see this before with him. Other than the original Wing Commander, he has only been in 'primary' control of the following game developments: Strike Commander, Freelancer, and the games CIG is working on. Everything else he has done was with other people in primary control.

So how did those work out? Strike Commander took more than four years and over a million man hours on background development. Very little of that production time turned out to be actually usable in the final product, as at least one and possibly several complete project "reboots" were required to refine the graphical engine to a playable state.

Freelancer took six years to release and that was only because after Microsoft took over funding midway, they put a full stop on much of the feature creep. That was in 2003, but I am willing to bet that if they would have just continued cutting checks to Digital Anvil, we would likely still be waiting for good ol Chris to complete his magnum opus.

News Comments > First Epic Games Store Exclusives Ending

18. Re: First Epic Games Store Exclusives Ending Dec 10, 2019, 03:48 Mordhaus
 
I am not a steam elitist. I just don't agree with the idea of exclusives. I fucking despise exclusives on consoles, why would I want to get used to them on PC?

We already have EA now only releasing their games through Origin, now we have Epic doing exclusives on 'popular' games. I don't support the idea, so I don't buy games on either platform. I do buy from GOG and Steam, but only because they aren't aggressively pushing exclusivity.

If they want to charge full price on other services, they can. I'll either forget about them or I'll wait until they get a big discount on sale.

Now if you want to talk elitists, you need to speak with the Epic fucking fanbois. They have been the ones gloating about people either buying the exclusives or being forced to wait a year. Some of them post any time a topic even hints about it being Epic related.

I am gonna be the cynic and say, if they don't add new content it means the sales were bad

I am gonna be the realist by pointing at the facts which are that Borderlands 3 sold in five million copies in the first five days, making BL3 the fastest selling title in 2K history and the highest selling title for the label on PC. Retail sell-through was 50% higher in the first five days compared to BL2.
BL3 also generated 14 million hours of view time on Twitch in the first week which amounts to more than 50% of the view time that BL2 aggregated over its seven year lifetime.

So, all in all pretty unfortunate news for the pitiful little band of Epic haters out there since BL3 is actually a smashing success for 2K. Keep dreaming though. Maybe one day a game will actually flop on EGS. Until then I'd suggest hitting up one of those real doll stores on the Internet and have them model a Gabe doll for you so you can f... I mean... hug and cuddle it every night. It might make this cruel reality where EGS is successful a little more bearable. Give it a try!

I'm going to be an asshole and say that:

A. ALL game companies inflate their release numbers in press releases
B. There are absolutely no FACTS in that press release. Unless FACTS mean to you what someone says with absolutely no evidence.

There are EPIC fanbois too. Don't be one of them....

Plus the first hint of humidity and it will fail all indicators or short the ppbus_g3_hot, meaning that it will be out of warranty and will cost more to repair than to replace with a new one.

I read the reviews, it seems to be a shit port even on 3rd party headsets. Not that I would expect anything less from a company that can't seem to release a single game without massive day one issues. Gearbox games = wait a couple of months for them to let people beta test them and fix the issues before you consider buying. It's just sad more people don't seem to be able to learn that.

NOT Every Voice Matters at Blizzard and we strongly encourage everyone in our community to NOT share their viewpoints in the many places available to express themselves. However, the official broadcast needs to be about the game and competition, and to be a place where all ONLY THOSE WHO TOW THE COMPANY LINE are welcome.

For once, we agree.

Imagine the uproar around here if he'd said Black Lives Matter.
No wait, that's kneeling in the nfl.

Muahhh I wouldn't give a fuck if he said that, or took a knee because you can do that kind of shit here in America.
Colin Kaepernick would like a word.

The difference is that blitzchung protested an issue based on reality; on things actually going on systematically in China and one can easily show the evidence. Colin protested a non-issue directly contradicted by factual data and originated from a racist and victimhood mindset. And for those prone to straw-man other people's arguments: I am not saying there is no police violence or that there's nothing of anything.

Pretty sure Colin is protesting a real issue.

Yes, and what was the NFL's respose to a Dallas player who wanted to salute fallen cops via stickers on his uniform or whatever after that BLM march when a lone guy shot and killed several cops a few years ago? They told him no. Colin Kapernick and others can bend a knee all they want though. Such oppression.

The NFL and NBA have long controlled the speech of their players and staff. The HK issue I guess has just finally cheesed off a majority of Americans that now everyone notices how much corporations have sold out to do business with China.

There's a reason people like Sepharo "snip" quotes the way they do. Some people approach debates in a tactic that either deliberately misinterprets or misquotes the opposition. I prefer to steel-man my opposition. If I cannot come up with counter-arguments, maybe that would be a reason to have my mind changed.

Many people, in this community too, prefer to just dig in and play an unfair game trying desperately to fortify their own position in the matter. See Sepharo's approach as a tell-tale sign. Most people know what I meant with what he quoted. I am certain.
I am also certain Sepharo did as well.

@Sepharo, for debate's sake, would you be so kind as to steel-man my position?
Please tell us why it is that every single time you enter a conversation about race that you are the only person who comes across as Raaaaaaaciiiiiissssst.
Is it because you are not from America and you have no understanding of the race dynamics here, or is it a language barrier issue.

Feel free to answer your own question. There's some internal thing going on with you if you are so prone to give me that heavy label. If I would write "black people are apes, white people are apes. We are all apes." you and some others here would jump at the chance to deliberately misinterpret and/or misquote me. That's not my problem. It's yours. You just make it my problem.

If it had nothing to do with China, why were you licking their nuts on weibo hours later?

Sorry, the monopoly landed this one.

It absolutely did not. If you BOTHERED to read the page, it says in comments it will be available on EGS,Steam, and GOG when the full version is ready. The only thing on Steam 'first' will be an Early Access version.

You can choose between Steam, GOG (DRM-Free) and EGS (in case they want Everspace 2) at full release (Early Access will only be available on Steam). It is in the description of the Standard Edition reward tier.

If they are doing it, it needs to be a complete reboot. SR1 and SR2 were great, SR3 was pretty good but it started slipping near the end. Everything after that was goofy.

Either start it with a new group of characters or have the stuff after SR2 be non-canon, with the boss mentoring a new hero.

Leaker got caught leaking and profiting from said leaks, that's the story. So now what... boycott the game? We're now siding with the perp of the crime instead of the victim? And you can fuck right off if your values all of a sudden switch polarity because the victim is a studio and not a private citizen. Quite the moral argument to be making.

The fuck...

1. It's a studio that is...somewhat clueless when it comes to PR and relationships with gamers. There is not a lot of love lost between their customers and the studio.

2. He is NOT a 'Leaker'. That would imply he was either:
A. an employee that leaked info
B. someone who signed an NDA to have access to said info

According to all we know, he found some way to access poorly secured information on Twitch, as did some of the people in his community. He then disclosed that info to his subscribers. It isn't his responsibility to make sure that the data he accessed was secure, it was the company's. Now they have all rights to force removal of the items that they retain copyrights to, such as screenshots etc, but it's pretty shitty of them to kill his discord, twitter, and other accounts because they couldn't keep their data hidden.


Thanks mate. You saved me the trouble to write what you did; to explain to the small-minded fellas, who so desperately want to be contrarians all of the time, what's what.

People who want a sci-fi flick future --where there's no government and companies have all the power over our freedoms -- must love this story.

Fuck Take-Two for intimidating their fans. Especially like this.

PS: Above opinion is based on the current information we have about the situation.

The funny thing is that I bet half of the people saying he is a scumbag are the same people that were cheering on Wikileaks for leaking government info. Obviously, unless some more information comes out showing him to be in the wrong, he really is no different.
