Lots of bugs but it's becoming quite fun to play. Recent patch improved performance as code is being moved to DX12 then Vulkan, a mix of DX11/12 at this time. Looting is possible now, and you can sell it to various shops in the game. The majority of the ships flyable in game are available to purchase with in game earned aUEC, maybe all of them, I'm not 100% on that part.

Mining gameplay is very well fleshed out and tier 1 salvage is coming for patch 3.18 "July/Aug". Don't pay too much attention to all the hate, it is progressing slowly but it's like nothing else you've ever played. Give it a try during the free fly, if you don't like it you're not out anything, then you can post hate comments about it that at least contain a rudimentary knowledge about what's going on instead of relying on hit-piece media articles as your only basis of information.
All that doesn't matter; the game still sucks because my bedsheets still doesn't rumple up in a realistic manner. How can the game play be any fun if they can't get something this fundamental right?

And this temporary fuel surcharge will even be in place for rides or deliveries done in an EV, “which we hope will serve as additional incentive for drivers to transition to EVs going forward,”
wait wat
The incentive is for the driver, not the rider. The surcharge means the drivers earn more per trip since I'm assuming Uber takes a standard percentage of the total fare and not the entire surcharge. Also, is it immature to admit that my first thought was "now I can fart as much as I like since I'm paying a surcharge for gas anyway"...

I think by that time we'll be operating a very large MMORPG

The reason this worked for Blizzard is that they had 10 million or so people paying $15 for WoW. Is SC going to start charging a monthly fee?

Many successful MMOs have operated on the buy once, support through microtransactions model. Many you don't even need to buy.
Is $40,000 still considered a microtransaction? cause the Legatus Pack 2951 costs that much now...

Sensationalist headline. It's an issue at one site of 1000 participants in a trial of 44,000 participants at 153 sites. That makes up 2.3% of the cohort. Removing their data wouldn't impact the overall results in the least.
The British Medical Journal is a very well-respected publication for medical professionals for the past 180 years. They don't post "sensationalist" material.
And you failed your reading comprehension. "Headline" is not synonymous with "material". The headline implies there are data integrity issues with the entire trial, and not at just 1 out of 153 locations.

Suggestion: Find a middle ground between Christopher Reeve clowning around with Richard Pryor and Henry Cavill murdering people.
That would be Brandon Routh's Superman Returns. I still think that was a really underrated movie. And Henry Cavill makes a great Superman, just a pity that the Superman he's forced to portray is a terrible one.

As I understand it this still made decent money from preorders and early adopters. Which means EA learns nothing. I would consider that people learn not to buy into hype and wait until reviews as a silver lining, but we know that will never happen.
Sounds like a great business model!

1. Hype up game
2. Make money on the pre-orders and early sales
3. Release half-finished game
4. Promise a galaxy of support and vows to finish game
5. Announce difficult decision to end support.
6. Go to step 1 for next game.

The original Vampire was an unmitigated disaster at launch, so this is things progressing like normal I suppose. At least Wesp and company were there to make it awesome.
It was boring as hell, being an on the rails hack and slash, but I wouldn't call it an unmitigated disaster. Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption actually worked decently and had a mildly interesting story. Vampire the Masquerade - Bloodlines that came after that was fantastic but buggy and unfinished.

The original Bloodlines and the original Vampire game refer to two different things, FYI.

Where's all that unity I keep hearing everyone wants?

Kind of hard to have unity when one side's definition of unity is "If you don't unite to give me everything I want, we're going to have civil war".

Unity doesn't mean giving the losing side everything they're throwing a tantrum about. And you can't have unity when one side refuses to budge from the lies and bad faith arguments they're making just to stay in power.

This looks pretty good actually, I guess I'll add it the potential buys list.

Some somewhat disturbing reviews out there, one on GoG claiming the ending is locked behind DLC? I haven't read up on this game at all, is it still incomplete?
From the game page:
The Collector's Edition contains Aquanox Deep Descent, its official Soundtrack composed by Kai Rosenkranz and the Digital Extras: A Making-of video, the Digital Artbook, the Exclusive Manticora ship (coming soon) and the extended Ending scene, closing the game between the original series and Aquanox Deep Descent (coming soon).

What a cash grab!

Not sure how this is even news. Supporting a 10 year old CPU in a game that's supposed to be technologically cutting edge makes no sense. It should require Dx12 or better yet Vulkan too. Just support the latest and greatest and turn this into a 'game' already.
Be careful what you wish for. I can forsee that if in 2021, Microsoft announces DX13, RSI will shortly announce they will be scrapping all the work done on Star Citizen and moving to a new engine which supports DX13.

Remember the 'cutting edge' camera feature that will translate your facial motions into the game? Yeah, I didn't think so.

now no finished part of the game until at least 2021

2021? Wow you really are optimistic, aren't you? I'ld have said at least 2030....

But the tech they're coming up with is amazing. Remember how they worked on that camera algorithm that will translate your facial expressions into your SC avatar in real life? That was really amazing, a game changer and I was so excited that.... Bwahahahaha I just couldn't keep a straight face anymore.....

Yeah, chasing dumb stuff like that is why this game will never be finished.

I played all the others except 3 because of the disgust I read about and figured it wasn't worth it.
the first half was actually great, the second half - you find out none of your choices matter, you find out some magic kid orchestrated it all, and then you find out the different endings only resuilt in different colored explosions. Yeah, they did some weak add on to do a "after the end" conclusion.

It is a legitimate criticism that the ending was mediocre and your choices didn't make a huge difference (though they still affect some things). However, dismissing the entire game (or series) on its concluding chapter is silly to me. It is more about the journey than the final destination (which also wasn't that terrible, especially with the later update).
Nope, the original ending without the extended cut was really, really terrible, because without the 'explanations' in the extended cut, it looked as if your companions, while you were charging at the gate and nearly being blasted to death, decided to abandon you, teleported back up to Normandy, where they and Joker deserted the battle to save their own skins.

That was why they had to come up with the Extended Cut ending, aside from the '3 coloured explosions that killed every civilisation in the galaxy because whatever you choose, all the Mass Relays will be destroyed releasing supernova level explosion making your choices irrelevant' ending in the original. They had to write that out as well.

Yes, I'm still bitter.

Stay safe everyone. Everyone is together in this... separately in our homes under social distancing rules of course. Please spare a thought for your healthcare workers.

Disclaimer: I have a sister working at a NHS hospital in the UK (Bristol). Yes, I'm very worried.

Thanks! I've lurked for quite a while, but I've never felt the need to post till now. I know "it" should be ignored, but in times like this, stupidity should be countered before it infects the rest who might not know better.

Scottish Martial Arts wrote on Mar 11, 2020, 20:35:
Health care is a finite resource: there are only so many hospital beds, doctors, nurses, medical laboratories, doses of medication, etc. Most of the resources that make up a health care system are also extremely expensive, especially so in the United States. As a consequence, health care systems tend to have enough resources to deal with the average demands with some amount of excess demand. As you may have noticed, we're still in flu/pneumonia season, which itself consumes the lion's share of the health care system's resources each year. If you layer on a large outbreak of corona virus, the resulting influx of patients will overwhelm the system's ability to cope.
Good post, but just to add one thing you missed: As the number of patients increase, so do the risks to those who have to spend time attending to patients: the healthcare workers. They get exposed for longer, and inevitably, they will contract the disease. So the higher the number of patients, the more likely it is that the numbers of doctors and nurses available will decrease as well as they contract the disease.

So it's not just the beds and equipment available versus the number of patients, the manpower available to care for the patients will also decrease as well.
