Quick question: if SC was suddenly flagged as 'released' tomorrow, with everything left to be done reclassified as 'live updates', would you feel differently about it?
if SC was released tomorrow as is, states they need more funds to finish so they have to go to a 'live update' format, then no .. I'd say fix your shit before you release and I wouldn't buy into it until they do.
if SC released tomorrow as 3.0 with the planet stuff, new systems, starmarine, and network fixes, I might
, and I stress might
buy in as the planet stuff (to me) looks very cool and I'd like to see PlanetSide style game play eventually. BUT not at 45bucks, more like 19 or 29$ with the knowledge that more updates might cost 10-15 dollars, and depending on the quality of those updates to put more funds into the game.
and then another release with SQ42 in 6 months ... with live updates from now until EoL of the game.
Edit 2 ... if they were to just change the alpha pre title from their releases to just a release scheme with live updates, but nothing else changed as far as their development cycle, then i would do what im currently doing, waiting for the right amount of content added to the game that i feel is good enough to be released before i buy into the game.
Edit ... let me add that i have not and do not buy into early access games as well. Ive only supported one KS project.This comment was edited on Oct 17, 2016, 14:35.
