For the 10 people still playing this, keeping the servers running is good news.

Hate to beat a dead thread buuuut. Regardless of why people may hate Cliff B. the product stands and falls somewhat on it's own merits.

Yes, there are people who hate him for what he is or what he is perceived as (kinda explains any 'celebrity' perception). Is it deserving? Yes or no considering the person's perspective on the individual.

The fact remains that his game is not selling. Regardless of his personal "wealth" as a game designer, he has just released a game that in not popular.

Whether the failing is on him or his team is an unknown until the inevitable 'Why Did Lawbreakers Fail?' article.

I feel for the team at Boss Key because releasing a bomb can't be pleasant and they probably all have families to support. Cliffy IS partially to blame whether people want to admit it or not. Some of his attitude towards PC gamers has been harsh and didn't sit well with certain gamers (myself included). I know that I will NEVER buy a game from his company simply because of who he is. Is this fair, I don't know, but it IS human.

"... he said he wants to be "less of a dick" with his interactions with people online."

No problem Cliff, just never text or interview ever again.

If hardly anyone is playing this multiplayer-only game, was it worth a purchase even at that price point?

I really just got it for the feeble single player. I usually spend more at Taco Bell on a bender so I figure 5 bones is worth it.

You could grind through the single player game in a weekend.

SP was a lot of fun. I ended up burning out around 70 hours into the game, so I got my money's worth.
If that's the case I may try to rip thru the single player this weekend.

Edit: Just checked it and it's preloading right now, 44 gigs.

Hey hey hey! Let's not get too bent out of shape about this! Usually, conservatives are Christians and I imagine God's name was mentioned a few times in the clip:

News Comments > Middle-earth: Shadow of War Trailer
6. Re: Re:Middle-earth: Shadow of War Trailer Sep 12, 2017, 12:11 SlimRam
 
I played and finished the first and I liked it ok. I tried to 100% the game and I remember that I couldn't for some reason. I really liked the nemesis system until you got one that couldn't be ranged attacked OR melee attacked I remember being a little exhausted with the combat towards the end of the game (although when I was fully leveled and my health was buffed I would start a fight in the middle of an enemy keep just to see how long I could keep fighting for = FUN *queue 'Drowning Pool - Bodies' song*). This does look a lot like the same but I guess if you are a die hard fan of the first it might be worth getting.

Yup. Whenever he manages to take a break from his "never been done before", "revolutionary"... blahblah... speeches then CR has his lucida intervalla and remembers that he might get his ass sued to hell and back if he doesn't at least deliver... something, anything... and totally against his usual over-confident self, he started talking about a MVP about a year ago himself.

It's when he started to cover his bases...

“We’ll have what we determine as a minimal viable product feature list for what you would call Star Citizen the commercial release, which is basically when you say OK, we’ve got to this point and we still have plans to add a lot more cool stuff, and more content, and more functionality, and more features, which by the way includes some of the later stretch goals which we have because not all of that will be right here fo the commercial release. But we’ll have something where we think, ‘Yeh, now everyone can play it, it doesn’t matter, you can load it up, it plays really well, it’s really stable, there’s lots of content, there’s lots of fun things to do, different professions, places to go’.

Hmmmmm... kinda sounds like what 3.0 is shaping up to be... doesn't it?

Honestly, to me, it sounds like a minimum viable product situation. Chris is starting to realize that this huge entire game that he's been trying to create is never going to see the light of day. Now, he's basically telling his customers, "This is the game and this is what is going to be sold, sorry, but I HAVE to release something."

Once that happens they won't be legally obligated to the backers. That's not to say crowd funding has any legalities attached to it in the first place.

BINGO!

9. The making of Alpha Protocol, Obsidian's secret best RPG Sep 9, 2017, 17:51 SlimRam
 
I remember playing it and I finished it and thought it was a pretty good game. I had gotten it cheap and it was patched and I had no problem with bugs. I thought the shooting was fun and I liked that you could play it as stealth or (my personal favorite) to go in blastin'. Some of the responses to some of the questions I remember trying to answer honestly and it led my relationship with my handler down a bad road? It was weird because at the end when you have to save her she fucking HATED me and I remember being shocked at how bad our relationship turned out Overall, I liked it *shrug*

SlimRam is going to shit himself when he learns about this.
Yep, my longing for the job of space janitor is FINALLY being realized.
