Is this the update that makes NMS look and play like the E3 footage?

I thought Dice knew they were making a WW1 game or was it merely a suggestion?

I mean, it looks fun and might be the title which forces me to break my EA shitlist but the Battlefield formula certainly doesn't make it look like a title which is suppose to capture The Great War. This just looks like a reskinned, fast-paced WW2 game from ages ago with horses.

Authenticity is definitely overshadowed by "fun" when it comes to Battlefield games, I'm still amazed that some of the kit in the game was actually used in WWI.

I need a fedora and whip in that desert map.

rumor is that they'll go microtransaction on appearance items, maps might not be sold in "premium" this time.

Do I recall that they're putting in some kind of single player this tim around?

Yes, suppose to be more "traditional" campaign rather than the string of multiplayer maps +radio show playing in the background.

Also, because the single player story has some wonderful secrets that we really want to preserve for launch, we also have to worry about leaks. Our wonderfully curious PC players have proven in the past that they will dig out anything they can, and there's a risk that they could spoil some of our single player.

So we are going to treat PC gamers as the terrorists that we think they are.

at least they announce the single player and multiplayer will be combined, so yes this will take up 50+gb of hard drive space.

ED suffers from the same issue of giant universe but needs a ton more meta game content to make it feel truly alive. It's all about the "experience" of being able to fly a space ship and land in space stations (that are pretty much all the same). The carrot on the end of the stick for the ED grind is to buy a better ship and fancy upgrades.

ED is not as "care bear" when it comes to space flight, you have to actually fly your ship. Some are really good with just mouse and keyboard but it ramps all the way up to HOTAS support. I do love the full immersion when using head tracking, you wouldn't think being able to head look on a 2D display would impact the game as much as it does. I'm not ready to wear a hot VR headset so I'm good with head tracking.

Elite Dangerous is like playing with regular lego bricks, this game feels like your playing with duplo bricks.

It's very lite on the survival aspect (no food, water, or sleep requirements), flying in your spaceship seems really safe, auto landing on planets and space stations, I don't think you can even crash into the ground if you try.

Perhaps this is another conscious decision to make the game playable by kids 12 years old and up as long as they don't have ADD.

Adding base building and freighter ownership seems like a bad idea all around, they need to breathe more life into the game itself with NPC's walking around in compounds and space stations. More diversity in designs between different alien races.

I don't think this game has a future, which is kind of unfortunate because they do have some really cool tech at work here.

Now they're going to have to go through extra effort to make sure the Windows 10 version runs faster than the Windows 7 version.

It's always up to the people making mods to fix these games, I understand there is a pretty good one for IL-2 Cliffs of Dover.

EA expects to sell 15 million copies in 12 months, so expect another $30 game by Xmas.

I wonder how many of those copies were sold at 50% discount, and it didn't take that long to price drop either. For $30 it's a fun enough DOOM game, at least they didn't make the mistake of needing a flashlight in your hands to see anything. The idea of having a "season pass" for the multiplayer is a huge bad joke.

Considering the alleged development hell this went through I guess it's surprising they even finished it. I'm still waiting for a sequel to Doom 2, Hell on Earth! Mars is pretty played out.

People falling all over themselves to praise "clock boy" for "making a clock" was the most pathetic form of pandering I've yet to see.

STFU "clock boy"

Jay gives us a tour of the Shotwell, designed by 17-year old Bob Shotwell in 1931 who once took it on a 150,000-mile road trip.

Now that guy was a prodigy genius.

It's very pretty, Bishop, but what are we looking for?

I don't think this blows up in anyone's faces. Given how small the team that made this was, they'll make their money back easily.

The wow factor feels pretty limited here, partially because everything is copy pasted but in the end I think the "beautiful solitude" can only keep you going for so long. They built an impressive scaffolding but the "game" part is missing still, and I don't think base building or turning the game into a freighter trading game is going to work.

Imagine a game like this except instead of flip florps and glip glorps you had Aliens laying eggs on planets where the indigenous life is mutated into bizarre and extremely dangerous species to contend with. It doesn't have to be "Aliens(tm)" but something, anything that gives you an on the edge of your seat experience.

It's lacking a narrative, it needs a strong adversary - the nano bots don't count as they're just a replacement of cops on a galactic scale from grand theft auto.

I get it, this is a chillax game where you're suppose to just take in the amazing accomplishment of going from planet surface to space to landing on a space station and looking down on the world you just came from out a window while walking around on said space station. And that is cool but the rest just leaves a feeling of "so close yet so far away" from being an all around amazing game.
