  • Sean Murray Announces XBox One Release Date - No Man's Sky - MMORPG.com

    Alright. I'll say this. While yes; I am on the side of the people who are angry at a lot of the missing features and let down No Man's Sky had, not all the blame is on Sean. Sony had pushed this game way too hard and never reeled Sean in when he started over hyping the game. Sony is partly to blame for this mess as well. Not only that, there was a point in time before the game's launch where Sean did state that some of the features would not be in at launch, but after launch. While I still don't have much motive to play the game anymore, nor am I happy with how it was handled; the whole "And you believed him?" crap needs to stop.

    Sony has stopped caring about No Man's Sky now that the hype has died off from it which means the team have full control over their development pace. Not only that, why would Sean lie about a feature that is very close to release. Every time he's announced a big update for No Man's Sky, everything they stated would be in that update has been in that update. They aren't over hyping the game, they aren't trying to market the game. They are trying to work on the game. The game has changed a lot from it's initial release.

    These were indie developers who only have developed one or two games, that got swept up by Sony. This is a very small team but got pushed to deadlines by Sony. If you are going to blame Hello Games and Sean, then blame Sony as well. These people are trying to make an effort to finish the game they promised and I do believe that they deserve the chance to do that.

  • Into the Abyss Expansion Revealed & Set to Launch in May 2018 - EVE Online - MMORPG.com

    I just with they'd unlock mining barges for Free to Play users. I use to mine a lot back in the day and is really the only thing I enjoyed doing in EVE. Came back for the F2P launch and was disappointed that barges were locked behind subscription still. Not that I am complaining that the game isn't worth the subscription. I just can't afford to pay for subscriptions at this point in time and wished the barge was one of the handful of ships that went Free to Play.

  • Pre-Alpha Testers Being Invited in for a Looksee at a Literally Growing Game - Pantheon: Rise of the

    $1,000 for pre-alpha access. Holy fucking balls Batman. If I remember correctly, this is also a game where you have to pay $5 a month to post on their forums. LOL Fuck this game.

  • Ready to Set Sail on March 20th - Sea of Thieves - MMORPG.com



    60 euro is too much. I have to buy it to all my friends but since i have no friends, i need to buy drinks to some people then pretend i care about them. After successfully done that i must buy them and their loved ones gifts for Christmas and then i need to buy this game to all of them. That amounts to like 1000 euro approximately. Are you freaking serious with this crap?



    I'll take just a copy of the game and I'll be your friend. :P

  • Is CIG really looking to secure $75 million to finish SC?

    This dudes video seems groundless as he doesn't provide sources. Just "Oh this guy told me this so it must be true." So I'd take this dudes video with a grain of salt. Regardless if you are a Star Citizen supporter or not. He also doesn't seem to have any knowledge on how development works and why some things are running the way they are currently or why 3.0 is delayed despite most of the information being out there so he seems to be blinded by frustration.

    As for his argument on the face tech going into Star Citizen. It's not the first time a game had this kind of system. EverQuest II had a face rig system just like what is going into Star Citizen where it utilized your webcam to track your face using a series of dots and those movements would translate into characters face. If I recall, it was called SoEmote. Star Citizen didn't develop the code for this face tracking feature and from what they said at their 3.0 presentation, it is something that is going to run in the background with the game. This was also true for EverQuest II, their face feature was a separate program running in the background while the game was going and the two communicated with each other.

    The faces in Star Citizen are already rigged for motion capture to push realism. They're already built with a skeleton and system to track rig movements so pushing this feature is obvious. All the CIG devs would have had to do was code something for the two programs to communicate with each other and bam, it's done. It wasn't like they stopped making game assets to focus solely on this feature. That being said, there are over 400+ devs for CIG now, a lot of people think CIG wastes time developing these features and aren't working on other ones which is wrong. They have multiple studios working on different aspects of the game. It's dumb to think a company is going to stop everything and assign 400+ people onto one feature. That isn't efficient.

    Either way, the dudes video is groundless and to me is just a video of some dude ranting cause he didn't get his precious 3.0 release yet. "I spent $150 on the game. Wtf is going on? Where is my 3.0?!". I spent $800 so far (Judge me if you want) and even I know the risks going into funding a game from Kickstarter and even I'm patient. I'd rather have something that is working and close to what they envisioned than to have something rushed out and broken. I don't expect the game to come out until 2020-2025 and that is fine with me. If people can't handle the wait, then don't back the game or don't pay attention to it until a more finished product is available. I backed the game because I want to see a game like this happen. Even if Star Citizen fails, I put my money towards the vision. Star Citizen gathered over $100 million from backers alone. Most game companies in the industry aren't going to ignore that kind of success. If Star Citizen fails, I almost guarantee you that another company is going to try and make something similar to Star Citizen, cause the market is there. That is why I dropped $800 into Star Citizen. It's to show the industry that I want something like this and I believe in such a vision.

    TL;DR: Dudes video has no merit. Don't back the game or pay attention to the game if delays frustrate you or if you can't be patient.
