Hey AntiBob, welcome back… Since you were the post starter… I see that the site conversion has some issues with some of the user names. What I will try to do this weekend if I remember is alter the DB slightly to make all your past posts be linked to this new user. (If I forget remind me :))
I think games go retro for me because I rarely have time to play games so by the time I get to them they are many years old. But I have played a few games on DosBox without issue
I didn’t watch all of that stream, is it me or does this seem boring? Granted the concept seems fun, and would be interested in watching a stream with someone playing when there is hundreds of people online playing. Because with this being a multiplayer only game and fighting all in one instance it will be important to have no lag when war is the whole purpose of this game 🙂
It would be nice to know the game session time for a basic game, because at some point there should be a reset of the system you would think since this isn’t a MMO and its universe isn’t as big as EVE. With this all taking place in generated solar system it is important to know the pacing and how fast this game moves.
I haven’t played any of these yet, I almost bought the first one during the steam sale. I should watch a few more reviews before I check this out, but it looks like too much management for my taste. But the story and campaigns look fun for both games.
They are claiming the game can hit 150FPS when playing, I think they are right because the engine they are using seems old and they seem to be using static backgrounds. I am never a fan of multiplayer only games because of their shelf life, I hope the devs look into releasing a server module.
This one has been in early access for over 3yrs now and it doesn’t even look close to being done. Does anyone have this game can give feedback on it, how is it in the early access state is it worth getting right now? I have stopped buying early access games entirely I am getting tired of waiting to play games.
This doesn’t even talk about the 46mil in private funding that CIG just received for a 10% stake in the company. In a way it is kind of concerning that CIG needed even more funding for this game. Star Citizen is definitely in a feature creep blackhole and it is insane to think about that we are kicking around 2020-2021 as possible beta release date that is 8-9yrs after the kickstarter.
I am actually worried, I recently tried to play the game and I couldn’t even get in my 300i cockpit (its a bug)…. but this ship has been in the game since the beginning…. how could this happen, I haven’t even tried what is it 3.4.x yet. SC doesn’t even look like it can release in a quality state by 2021 there is just too much to tweak and solidify.
Personally I have been looking very forward to Squadron 42 and hope to see this one soon.
Welcome to SSC David, and excuse the sites auto spam and link checker 😉 but 5+ years of work on a game is definitely shows a passion and obsession to your creation and cannot wait to see more and more and you push it for a official release.
About time they bring back the old Mechwarrior… would be nice to see them remaster MechWarrior 2 & 3. But here is a gameplay video and this is due to drop in the fall of this year.
I will investigate a few of these, the rest have been talked about here. The first two look really good, I showed my son Industries of Titan since he liked the Simcity type of games and he excited to see more…. maybe I can turn him into a nerd 🙂
They have definitely changed directions from their kickstarter info I think after reading this again. I thought this game was long dead
Finally back from the Philippines (seeing the GF), different for me not being in the cold at Christmas time. I actually prefer it, it was nice not freezing my ass off and sitting in 80-90F everyday
Going away on vacation for the holidays, I will be back around the 2nd week of Jan. Going back to the Philippines. I will try to check-in when I can, everyone have a merry christmas and a great new year.December 17, 2018 at 8:14 pm in reply to: Sins of the Solar Empire; Rebellion is free on Steam #112266
This is for free again until the 19th
My family never owned any of these or I would have kept them, looking on ebay you can find most of these for $30 – $200+, I should look into getting a few of these. The Aliens board game was $170 😮
Nice information in that video, looks like egosoft is on top of things and getting fixes in and adding user requested features to the game thats all a plus. I didn’t know X4 main engine was based solely on Vulcan… I know in the past AMD graphics cards seemed to excel at that, hmm wonder if there is any performance gains using AMD or Nvidia while playing X4?
