That update list for 4.9 reminds me of the youtube channel for the engine, the tutorial videos start out with something like several hundred thousand views but in each successive tutorial they lose around 40k views.

I think people thought making games with this would be, easy?

Don't you have that backwards? Matchmaking is the last thing an e-sports game would want, let's all join X server to practice - oops.

If you can't make a server private and you have no controls over what map you're playing - good luck with that.

No details yet on how their party system works, supposedly it has one.

Anyways, a few weeks ago people were celebrating the fact that the game wasn't using Battlelog.

The most insane quote from that article is him saying

If I'm not bringing in $3 million or $2 million a month, we aren't going to have as many people working on it.

If that's true then he's got to be placed in some record book of slickest salesman ever.

The counter to people running around with Invr or Flir is flares or flashbangs.

you have to "buy" the DLC from the store before you can play the night map (only one right now but more are going to be released). It's free but you have to buy it. Maybe EA is doing some sort of back end accounting and writing it off as a $14.95 loss every time someone clicks the button.

Graphics and sound seem top notch from the alpha videos released but gameplay wise it reminds me of those really old Star Wars games they made that were nothing more than a partially interactive movie "Star Wars - Rebel Assault".

Either way it's cool they're not locking it away from people trying it out before release.

Oh yeah, Matchmaking 100% confirmed. No Server Browser, instanced servers.

I can see why they want to obscure details about the game population, it becomes self fulfilling death of a game when you look at a game like Hardline with hardly anyone playing and decide not to bother.

I don't know how they're going to spin the benefits of not having a server browser. "skill based matchmaking"

I only purchase Steam games through Steam when the sales are going, otherwise I buy them through key dealers like Green Man Gaming.

The game runs on matchmaking so they get to control over how and when the map is played.

They offer up the ability to play a map you've paid for like it's a special treat, "this weekend only you can play Nuke Town".

News Comments > Star Citizen Social Module Released

There's videos that shows it off, it's relatively small with large vistas of buildings and ships flying in the background. Bar, medic hospital, jobs, spaceship showroom, gun store. It's just a hub with everything pretty close to each other.

There's a way to glitch a craft to fly around the map.

of course it's completely overbuilt, looks like it was made by someone who never studied game design and optimization. everything not visible from the player character should be culled from the scene for example.

James Cameron did it right, moved to NZ (along with his family) set himself up on a farm and I think he installed a dedicated fiber connection so that he could essentially VR into the movie studio to work on his Avatar pet projects from his ranch.

Finally got in without timing out. God damn, I'm impressed! The fidelity of the hub is amazing. No wonder it's taking so long for them to roll out stuff...

It looks very Mass Effect but with the clutter and immersive atmosphere of Deus Ex. The cityscapes look amazing. I was always dissapointed that Mass Effect always cheated with a blurry window over looking a matte painting with sprite vehicles flying around.

Star Citizen has fully modeled skyscrapers with a very realistic urban sprawl connecting everything together.

I don't know why they called it the "social module". They should just call it the "hub" or something. The social part -- there's no chat function that I could find -- just has a bunch of identical dudes running around in various states of lag.

The whole deal behind spending two billion dollars for Minecraft makes me think it's like some ultra rich guy's version of Trading Places just to see what some average slob would do with all that money. I'm sure there's at least a dollar wager that he'll go broke before he turns 40.

For someone who had enough imagination to create Minecraft he seems to be running short on it with regards to how to spend his money. First thing he seemed to do was blow $70 million dollars on that museum of a house in LA? Of all the places in the world to plant your flag why on earth would you want to live there?

If someone handed me two billion dollars I think I'd be playing Minecraft only with real world structures building a city that would equate to nerd nirvana, the massive wall would be to keep the creepers out.

What the actual f**k! What is a "social module," and how does it relate to battling space fighters?

If you're able to look past the shiny graphics, it's a 30 gig menu system that you can't interact with.

are they allowing cross-platform play in the beta does anyone know?

You mean Xbox One players against PC players? lol that'll never ever happen.

I think they've dipped too far into the sci-fi sauce with this one, they over estimated the popularity (lack there of) for Titanfall by trying to make a "me too" clone. Would have been better off rebooting the series with a WWII game.

It's too difficult to come up with really unique locations for different planets. They're not going to go all planet "Pandora" when they can film in a giant sandbox, Dubai this time I believe.

It's not Tatooine because we're calling it Jakku.
