    I find this closing bit especially entertaining. The implication is that these individuals are looking to find this exploratory experience with Star Citizen, a game with fairly obvious engine problems that's having a hard time doing anything but PVP. The open universe hasn't been implemented on any meaningful level, nor has any sort of trading or economy. I suppose if these individuals expected to find any part of that experience with No Man's Sky then they truly are stupid, but I guess I've come to expect hope for better from people.

    I don't understand why they don't turn to Elite: dongs-r-us. Yeah it has a lot of issues, but at least it's a real game that actually gets meaningful updates.

    Because they don't want an actual game. They want an idea of a game. You know, a dream.

    ED is also very focused on kitting and then flying your spaceships (shocking for a sim, yes), and its best feature by far is the flight model and combat. I don't think that appeals much to the "EXPLORE A REAL UNIVERSE" dreamers.

    In current year you fund games that will never be made. And then tweet/blog about it.

    Get with the program, grandpa!

    Been playing the Alpha the last few days. It seems somehow more bugged than when I played it a year ago. I can't believe simple things like opening doors and getting in and out of cockpits still doesn't work half the time.

    They made some weird changes to the flight model since last time I played. Now you're limited to very low speeds unless you use boost, but the way boost works is kind of janky and doesn't seem consistent.

    The newer ship models are fantastic. I jumped on a caterpillar with a couple other guys and manned the turret for a few battles and had fun.

    The Star Marine stuff is not great FPS gameplay... but it's not terrible. I like what they're trying to do with the realistic player movement, but it's not quite there yet. Instead of slow-paced tactical gameplay it's just kind of a clusterfuck with everyone charging around at full speed. The guns look and feel good though.

    Looking forward to the 3.0 stuff but my expectations are very checked.

    I suppose I should rephrase "can Dread Pirate Roberts dodge the Smart Missile?" into "Dread Pirate Roberts can't dodge the Smart Missile."

    I'm sure CROBERTS did everything in his power to restrain himself from shackling them to long-vacated workspaces.

    How come I got an email saying that it was about a production schedule and there were no dates in it at all? Do they need to look up "schedule" in the dictionary?

    It sounds to me like they are going under by the end of the year.

    Their production schedule was clearly written in the email, here, let me quote the entire thing:

    Yeah, but it's also a game in which Nav computers don't know how to use brakes.

    The complexity and scope of this game is mind-blowing. Invented languages are not something I get excited about but it's cool to know that they're putting much effort in this particular field to make it as coherent/believable as possible. If the rest of the game is built that way it may be a very special title. If it ever releases... =P

    This is why we can't have nice things. Sperging about the amazing features of a non-existent game is insane. Look at any interview with a developer about the 'initial scope' of their game. They all start out with sky-high ambitions, and then somewhere along the line, well before the first videos, a superior tells them how badly they'll blow their budget and miss their deadlines, and they scale it back to something they can actually make. This is like taking that initial 'I want to make this, therefore I can' naivety and selling it as a game that's actually been made.

    I tried playing that.
    I gave up after 5 hours of trying to get through the battle tutorial. I admire people who can play this with kb+mouse, but I honestly can't. I was drifting around in space like a drunken cow propelled by its farts.
    That was the first game I was unable to play due to an obvious lack of skill on my side, ever.

    Pretty sure I would be just fine with a proper joystick set (at least I had no trouble with Freespace back in the day), but I can't be arsed to buy one for just one game...

    You know, I'd be happy with just another Freelancer game. I don't need super realistic controls.

    Also, there was a new Around the Verse episode which consists of 40 minutes of the one programmer who looks like he's high fantasizing about their non-existent AI. Seriously, they basically say the have no proper AI yet, no tools for designers to make missions... and SQ42 was supposed to be released last year?
