GW2 PVP is completely unwatchable. Twitch numbers are pitiful for GW2 PVP.

Unless you have mastered every class and know each classes skills, conditions, and cleanses, most people have no idea what is going on.

Trying to stage it like a MOBA has got to be some marketing hacks idea.

This is a vanity project that will go through the motions, but I really doubt it will attract much viewership.

Supreme Commander Forced Alliance already had both, detail and more units on the board than you could keep track of without downing quarts of caffine.

There will have to be better group command and controls if more units than SCFA are fielded.

Thanks for including the Exxon Article link.

Sad state of affairs that such real news worthy stories are not widely reported on the corporate owned mass media, and only surface at independent sites like yours. Good for you.

Amazing that Exxon is banking on global warming to increase their exploration and production activities.

Seriously, FMV in a game is such pre-historic crutch.

It means the game engine is nowhere close to being able to portray a convincing story so FMV is called in to cover.

The whole game life cycle on this project is so backwards. Hype first, then try to build it, miss production dates, more hype, more non-productive expenses, more delays, less integration.


Be my guest if you want to give this project money.

Star Citizen has all the accouterments of an end days cult, that vastly enriches it's top guru/con-man.

Always amazes me how some people can be so gullible and fall repeatedly for a steady stream of promises, smoke and mirrors, vanity item sales and an ever delayed end game.

I remember watching a 60 minutes show a few years back, the jist of which was as the 1% gobble most of the resources, if you are not in that 1%, the only reliable way to make money will be to cater to the customized luxury desired by the 1%.

Hand made diamond encrusted toothbrushes, etc. Exclusivity, vanity etc.

I think CR saw the same show and decided he was going to farm game whales, without a game, only flashy promos, and digital art while the getting is good. The world's authorities are too busy gorging on whats left of our infrastructure to pay any attention to whale farming. This will just peter out over time, until the whale revenue does not meet CR's monthly expenses.

This so humorus.

It's like Calvin Klein trying to sue the parking lot where a flea market happens to make that person police the transactions, when in fact, Calvin Klein and company should be doing it them selves, ie. making individual accusations and informing police of the facts.

The reality is this is a shake down of the parking lot owner, for a cut of the non-existent action.

News Comments > No SC Retraction from The Escapist
99. Re: No SC Retraction from The Escapist Oct 7, 2015, 07:43 Bub
 
After playing immersive deep PC games of various genres over the last 20 years, I have come to realize the PC games and especially online PC games are sorely lacking in terms of consumer protection.

These are products we pay handsome sums for, through subscriptions and micro-transactions, yet there are scant consumer protection provide by the law. Software houses are free to change terms at any time with the trend to be the reduction of consumer rights and adding more armor to the producers.

What I fear is that more and more of the world corporate overlords will start adopting this approach that has been so fine tuned by online game houses.

So when someone yells "Fire" in the tinder box situation, I don't really care what their personal and business history is, and I run out the exit, while software house fanboys still sit, competing with each other to heap the most abuse on the character of the person who yelled "fire".

CR and his flagrant con game simply puts this situation to a head.
I hope that given the almost inevitable outcome of failure, this issue could help in the long run into motivation better regulation of crowd funding, games with micro-transactions and/or subscriptions.

News Comments > CIG Demands Escapist Retraction; Threatens Lawsuit

I don't think there is a market for the "cover-all-bases" type space game CR is hawking.

Anyone who wants a zero G, large scale combat 3D game can get it for a few bucks in the form of Freespace Open. Anytime I need a space combat fix, I fire it up. But very few people play this game today.
It is too grognardy and has too many controls and variables for todays mostly console trained gamers. Look at what is selling these days in terms of space games. Eve, Elite, Space Engineers, a some buzz for No Man's Sky.

I think CR knows there is no market these days for deep, complex space game. Eve has the social space market sewn up, Elite is doing OK in the basic combat space arena, and Space Engineers give those who want exotic one of kind ships, lets them build them as they like.

CR has discovered how to milk whales with limited edition digital ships. He won't exit or deliver anything until that income stream drys up.

As far as convention demo reels go, those are all pure magic 3D rendered fantasys. I may watch them just to enjoy the artistry that went into creating them, but I don't plunk down cash until a real product has been play tested by impartial players.

Counting down for clones/knockoffs to appear.

It's basically Farcebook with a scale of +5 to -5 instead of 0 to 1000's of likes, same difference.

If you lived through Watergate, you know that "Deep Throat" and anonymous source, spilled the beans that petty much brought down Nixon and companies White House scam.

CR will never take this to court as that involves audits and discovery in addition to exponential legal costs.

It's all bluster for the few well funded Whales that continue to buy ships.

oh boy an juicy conter-conspiracy theory, yum.

It sounds logical, I have wondering what CRs exit strategy would be as it is obvious he is incapable of pulling SC off as promised.

Ego and management habit, doom CR to this pathetic outburst.

If he wants to waste money pushing this into the courts, he is wasting his time, as he has not a leg to stand on.

CR has simply honed down the fleece the whales with the least possible product to a fine point.

Play any online game today and you will find countless whales who spend thousands of dollars every month or so.

These are people with more disposable income than sense, but who want be dominant in a game and are willing to pay whatever it takes to get there.

More and more online games have cash shops these days, where advantages are sold at a premium. It is out of control at this point, and will get worse until one of these rat scams falls apart and enought players get burned.

Why do these pay to win game people get so ashamed of what they are doing that they have to lie about things. In every free to play game I have ever played, sure you can earn anything just by playing, but these f2p games tend to be the most grindy games around. Meaning progress without paying means months of repetitive play at the same level to acquire boosts that the whales grab overnight and leave you in the dust.

Free to Play games are for Whales only.
