In a free to play game? I totally get it. It has to make money somehow. Loot box the shit out of that.

You guys don't seem to get it, the game industry has never kept anything seperate. Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 went from being software you entirely controlled to online /w microtransaction ridden crap. There is no such thing as a game that a game company won't try to put microtransactions in, as soon as mmo's, horse armor and buying mounts in wow was a thing loot boxes were the inevitable next step.

Everyone who supported mmo's, steam and drm - this is the end result - games with less content sold back to you at a higher price.

Time to do Freespace 3 eh? Haven't we waited enough already?

Freespace 2 sold poorly, so FS3 is a non starter. The people who worked on Freespace / Descent are doing overload right now.

As someone who's last MMO was Guild Wars 2, I can't understand why these companies need to bring down their servers for hours at a time.

Same thing it's always been about - being cheap. If games had dedicated server software you could play the game while the patch spreads, but given that the average gamer today is a fucking moron who will buy server locked games and is largely technology illiterate, we get mmo morons - the original drm'd rpg game, fucking everything up with their culture of server locked 'online games'.

Human beings are too fucking stupid and irrational.

These games feel more like beta's, the first one was really unpolished out the gate. I don't have high expectations for this one. Too much time is going into the pretty and not the experience.

Doesn't change the fact that it's one of the best games ever made

I wouldn't say that, the exploration parts tend to a be a bit boring and the items sitting on the ground aren't really as visible as they should be. Doing the little quests can be a real grind.

Does this game feature realistic crashes though? Or are all the cars still magically invulnerable except to a few minor cosmetic scratches and superficial damage? Always find the lack of accurate damage modelling a real immersion killer.

You might want to check out wreckfest if you want to smash cars.

You fools can all go and make jokes all you like but the fact remains - quake champions will have no sdk, level editing or modding... the fact that you would celebrate it is a sign we live in an idiocracy.

Why can't people that like Warframe just be let alone for liking it and not being looked at as part of some bigger problem you have?

It's not a problem I have, every gamer who actually was part of that generation cares about the REAL PC gaming culture that we had in the 90's, to have that fucking destroyed makes gaming less fun overall. No rocket arena, no threewave ctf and all the cool shit fans/devs made. What the fuck is quake champions going to be without any level editing or sdk and modding? Multiplayer quake was all about the mod aspect. To have that shit on and made f2p is a fucking travesty. It's obvious you are not really a big fan of games and are among the stupid set. Anyone who gamed seriously in the 90's would be mad at the shit that has happened to games.

Where would supreme commander be without sorian AI? The fact that we no longer get game tools/level editors with AAA games to the extent we used to is a fucking travesty and anyone who cares about having the most fun should be fucking sad it's being taken away.

So no it's not just my problem, it's just that you don't give two fucks watching many great aspects of PC gaming go down the shitter like most of the masses.

I'm not sure what stupidity has to do with it.

The fact that f2p, drm, steam and mmo's even exist means people are tech illiterate.

In the 90's we had dedicated servers and fully controlled videogame software, it's fucking awful that f2p games even exist. Because these games won't be preserved for posterity and you can't mod them because now game company have full control of game software.

The whole "software as a service" model was a big scam to get games out of gamers hands, there's a huge downside - we get stuck with the developers vision of what a game is.

Games like league of legends and DOTA2 were descendants from a culture of AAA game open-ness that has now been shit own by valve and all game companies for micro-transaction ridden crap.

AKA no privacy and you being spied on when you use said game, you have no privacy when you play an mmo/internet/steam connected game at all and they can gather all sorts of info on you and sell it behind your back.

There's just too much evil shit that companies have done to games and its a travesty. That's what I mean by stupid.

The fact that software was basically ripped out of our hands and now they can press a button to destroy the games because they will never release server code so maintaining these server locked games for posterity will be practically impossible.

For someone who cares about games and gaming history, its fucking tragic that the masses are so stupid they are basically destroying games and game culture.

They surely can afford it now, but probably do this in their meetings.... We are making money hand over... why do we need to create a single player campaign experience? We've already found our audience that loves what we've actually made.

I'm fully aware of how these companies worked, the average gamer is much too stupid for companies to give too much of a rats ass about quality.

This game is still free to play, right? I guess I should get around to trying Warframe, and forget about the Destiny 2 nonsense.

Anybody still active in Warframe, with an up to date opinion on the gameplay/grind?

It's still pretty much the same game, aka DE injects new content, people flock to it then get bored in an endless cycle. The reality is if they'd just make a full single player campaign they could have a good game on par with mass effect but the reality is they don't want to spend the money and I doubt their team has the talent to really take it to the next level.

So we get these little bursts of small but semi-interesting content but then you'll immediately get bored again and realize the reason you stopped playing.

There's nothing radically different about the game. It's too bad they don't want to spend the money to fully flesh out an actual SP AAA game. Tragically they are just milking the fanbase with minimal content.

I just don't get it from a consumer point of view. I mean, even the zombies are derivative.

You should, After call of duty 4, the game industry discovered putting an action movie inside a videogame sells the game to gun nuts and those who have fantasies of being a soldier. It sells to those types of people. It doesn't sell to traditional gamers. They are buying it for the experience of being in an action movie/war movie. Not as a videogame.

There was even and article about it on IGN how cod's customers are not really gamers.

I remember when I originally commented on how stupid it was years ago on this site a lot of people chastised me for it.

The whole of modern gaming is a fucking idiocracy, paying for in game mounts in a fucking mmo you are paying monthly for? Microtransactons? Loot boxes? The average gamer is downright subhumanly slave like to all this bullshit. The fact that we can find idiots defending gaming being ruined.

Modern gaming is a shitshow of functionally retarded animals.

Only gamers would argue that calling black people the n-word is not racism. Christ.

Uhm no, that pewdiepie saying nigger isn't racism since it wasn't used in that way. People say shit all the time when they are beat or die in a videogame. Pewdiepie just was fucking stupid about doing so in public.

Real racism is denying people jobs because of the color of their skin, and treating people as less than human.

People shooting the shit in a competitive environment say all sorts of stupid shit, if it was a black person no one would bat an eye, but because it's a white guy on youtube everyone loses their fucking minds. What about all the black people on youtube calling each other nigger?

How a word is used and intended by the speaker and the context matters a hell of a lot before throwing accusations of racism.

And now the bad: to me this game has one of the weakest combat systems in a space 4x I've played. They've tried to do an abridged system like in Endless Space 1 but it's worse here. There's a weird system of lanes, engagement distances and combat orders that doesn't really let you control things the way you want. After you pick orders you watch the combat and it's really hard to actually tell what's happening.

The reality is, all the bad parts of Endless space 1 made it into ES2. The reality is ES1 is looking to be a real fluke, the best thing they had going was planet management and research, everything else - the lanes, the way planets are colonized, etc. Are pretty bad all around.

The late game in ES2 is especially god awful esp with large size maps, ships take forever to get places.

The fact they tried to shoe horn in cinematic pseudo combat which really needed to be cut and be its own game. They even have a skip button because they know 99% of the time you are going to skip it. What a waste of time and resources.

They should have just focused on the game and not the hollywood bullshit. They are trying to put a weird pseudo-realtime combat system into the game that doesn't belong there - that cinematic ship combat system they want really needs to be a separate game unto itself.

But again we are naked in a digital world and whatever you think is sacred about your data... you've given that up voluntarily or involuntarily a long time ago.

Sorry to tell ya but what you just said is a myth...

The idea that the consumer decides corporate policies by voting with his money requires.

1) An informed population
2) Sophisticated knowledge about technology and how to make rational decisions
3) Geographical proximity to business.

Without those 3 there is no accountability, it's just a pure dictatorship of business policy over everyone else.

Before the internet there was a balance of power between buyer and seller of software, that balance of power has been erased by the internet and human stupidity. All corporations need to do is just have a group of moronic parents give birth to a generation of kids who don't know wtf is going on. Most people are ignorant as fuck regarding their own society and believe whatever they are fed through schools, media and TV/Youtube/Social media.

No one voluntarily gave up their rights, steam and mmo's were imposed because you need special training to see through the fraudulent nature of their agenda to remove control of software from you. It's not a trivial undertaking. The reality is the human mind was never built to make rational decisions in a high tech capitalist society and we're seeing the results.

No one wanted steam or software being removed, but the original PC game generation can't exactly jump through a portal to these big companies headquarters and give them hell so they get away with it because the market is a myth in a post internet age. You can't hold someone accountable when they are 100's of miles away. Before the internet they had to release the software physically to a company like walmart if they wanted to get paid, they don't have to do that now that the internet enables fraud on a massive scale.
