stardock has always seemed shady to me, and i am glad their entanglement in the star control IP is problematic. just another bad decision in a long line of them.

my thing... even if he called Haiti a shithole, how is that racist?

i googled Haiti statistics and was told anywhere in Haiti there is a high likelihood of being raped murdered or robbed...

Operation Mockingbird

where was all the hate when Bush II was president? oh yea he was a company man

i love the game and im also disappointed

3.0 was supposed to be a milestone that made the game playable, and its a slide show; i would say the article is correct that its more a headache to play than anything

my understanding is that the engine calls out the locations of all items no matter where they are on the server to the client and bogs it down. object culling is due in 3.1 (attached to march 2018) so we can hope this is the fix

if you play arena commander (or the last version 2.6.3 with a offline mods hack) the game is smooth as butter, so its unfortunate they force everyone online when its functioning so poorly, wrong foot forward. really to me it makes no sense, what they are getting from forcing everyone online im sure i dont know, but whatever it is i will assume is generating revenue

on the flip side i have never been more confident the game is not only technically possible but will make release, Amazon wants the same thing as starcitizen from the game engine, and while i can see its possible Chris made a bad call with cryengine i dont think Amazon would choose the same engine if the potential was not there and realistic (EDIT: if the game fails my guess is that Amazon would purchase the assets, Star Citizen will definitely be the flagship product for Lumberyard)

and feature creep lmao i always thought was a turd of an argument, nothing much has been added i would not expect to have been there from the kickstarter vision, Chris is just cranking it up to 10 across the board

just look at Battlefront 2, looks amazing but space and land battles are separated, cant jump in a ship on the battlefield and fly up and take part in a battle in orbit, or board a ship in orbit and fps battle there... thats Star Citizens turf, and if Chris Roberts fails i would guess thats off the table

who else is gonna make this happen?

(EDIT: the X series, EVE, and Elite are working on space + stations walkabout, which is similiar to Freelancer, Star Citizen is clearly a generation ahead of all these titles by including planetary landing and boarding, so it stands to reason at some point the tables will turn massively)

News Comments > Star Control Rights Follow-up
4. Re: Star Control Rights Follow-up Dec 5, 2017, 13:37 datachasm
 
Hopefully Star Control I and III will also become available for free in the near future.

would be great if they open sourced the games. star control 1 was a great game. 2 and 3... not so much.

its good to see these guys fighting for their ip, and im looking forward to Ghosts of the Precursors.

the whole deal reminds me why i dont like Stardock, werent they trying to make original ip and didnt have much luck? now they are trying to revive this old ip, with rights to only the name. they have taken many stances over the years i dont agree with (and they were wrong everytime).

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Progression Eased
18. Re: Star Wars Battlefront II Progression Eased Nov 14, 2017, 02:16 datachasm
 
so on the fence...

BF2 is fun and looks amazing, scratches the 2142 itch for me, but awkwardly steps away from Battlefield, as an example land and space battles being separate matches when i think it would be better to have it all together. i guess we would now be on star citizens turf from a technical perspective, and people might even complain if it played more like a skinned Battlefield 1 where you found hero kits on the battlefield and vehicles were spawn points.

what really is odd is stripping out the squad stuff from Battlefield when Star Wars lore is all about squads and groups of friends, a really strange direction that makes no sense, but i guess these changes likely serve their stupid star card system or its an attempt to distance themselves from Battlefield.

if you could cross Dice's Battlefield gameplay with Respawns Titanfall 2 progression and handling of DLC (free to everyone and selling cosmetics) BF2 would easily be a 10/10.

with a leftover giftcard and Prime 20% off preorder im in for $32, a good deal, i guess im just a bit concerned what happens after this shitstorm, will the game expand or contract? not to mention the EA merry-go-round means this game might be redundant in 1 year and Battlefront 3 might be the only one worth owning.

also wanted to mention: some circle jerker on r/starcitizen has a thread going about how thankful he/she is about starcitizen with regards to this debacle, i thought i might mention here: does starcitizen share some of the blame? people sinking $1000's into that game it only makes sense game makers want some of that action, amirite?

scratches the itch for me, grand strategy rts

the possibility of lots of DLC imo is a good thing for a game like this, dunno to expect as much as CK2 or not, but the mods for this game are about the same league as Skyrim, tons of stuff

top it off with multiplayer support and this game has lots going for it

weird i always though the bad company games took away from the battlefield roots as an answer to call of doodie

we still dont have the squad and commander as good as bf2

in an attempt to fill the bf1 void i grabbed battlefront with the recent sale... uggh i played a round of death star and refunded

maybe it gets better with unlocks but it just aint there for me

i hate the $130 front end but gotta admit its good value, i would probably play this game for 3 years

worse thing that could happen is they make 2143 or BF5 next year

i wasnt crazy about it the first few rounds, seemed slow and battlefronty like a console game, but after playing some more i think its excellent and a worthy successor to 4

just not sure about pre-order at these prices... $70 with all the bonuses and minus the season pass or $130 for all, and estimated 05.2017 for the first map pack in the season pass

27. Re: Star Citizen Squadron 42 Next Year? Sep 4, 2016, 19:41 datachasm
 
my guess is that they release 3 levels by the end of the year, if its accurate we are seeing pieces of it (arc corp, grim hex, levski, idris, crashed idris)

its plausible that they can have the levels designed and art ready and add in AI and the combat aspects as they are completed but a military storyline would need the c&c, information, engineering, and really all the multi crew besides sitting in the same ship

but yea still missing 90% of the features

check your grenades, regular, gas and smoke are there

i didnt notice any frostbite building collapse but it might be there, also seemed a bit slow paced, like its meant to be played with a controller

i would like to see a hardcore survival Conan game, like 7 Days to Die mixed with GTA5/Just Cause over the top mayhem, but true to the books naturally

a seeded random map of Hyboria would be asking too much

well then its working, likely to pass $100 million today

also, 2.0 is on the PTU and added 50k players

the server is crashing lots currently, but the game itself is smooth in single player, and looks fantastic

it was actually pretty good except for the horrible miscast of Kyle Reese, whom did not look or act like he had grown up post apocalypse

maybe this is more to do with selling the game before the expansion?

is it true you buy the expansion and get the base game with it?

what i was reading was now is not the time to buy the game.

40k seems like a no brainer imo...

i think Space Marine (tabletop) was the first game i played from GW

on the fence about total war in general but this will probably be in rotation for our group.
