  1. Alpha 3.2.0 PTU is now available for Wave 1, Concierge and Subscribers. The current patch is Alpha 3.2.0i. I was able to give it a try and I'm pretty happy to first iteration of planetside mining implementation, but hopefully it will require even more player interactivity in upcoming iterations. More challenging the better. I wasn't able to try other bigger changes but the patch should go Live within a week so no need to wait for long. Roadmap
  2. I was looking forward to hear or see more about Starfield but unfortunately there wasn't much about it. If it will be a single player space RPG as some rumours says I'm not interested. Bethesda Game Studios doesn't make games I like much so the expectations are pretty low. As publisher Bethesda (Softworks) has some interesting titles so I will keep eye on those games. Wolfenstein, Doom, etc. I will buy if they will be released (or ported) for SteamOS/Linux but otherwise from discount at best.
  3. I prefer first person view but having third person view possibility would have been nice addition although it would have been much more work. PC Gamer mentioned that they are using Destiny kind of damage indication (visible numbers on damage) and a health bar over the NPCs which I very much hope can be hidden. It will be also interesting to see how the game is balanced between different controller types and how the fighting will be implemented. What they showed and talked in E3 made me a bit less exciting about the game but I need to see and test it myself to have any strong opinions about ityet . Well, there are lots of to look forward to and hopefully they will show us more in near future.
  4. It was finally nice to see at least a little of Cyberpunk 2077. As not so big fan of GTA series I hope it turns out to be quite different, but let's see. I was expecting to see some gameplay already and even get a release window but maybe next year then ... I'm not happy about news of company acquirements; Undead Labs, Playground Games, Ninja Theory and Compulsion Games. I guess it means there is pretty much zero change to have SteamOS/Linux/etc. games from them in future. It is sad that PC platform gets fragmented internally.
  5. Nothing particularly interesting to me but I'll update FIFA 12 to latest one and will get Madden 19 for PC if the version is any good.
  6. I'm not talking only about Star Citizen but all games that has been developed for a good time and it shows; Dwarf Fortress, UrW, Star Citizen, Beyond Good & Evil 2, Cyberpunk 2077, etc. I would like to see more like these among AAA games additional to current typical 1-4 year cycles. I don't know what kind of technical problems Crackdown 3 development has but wasn't it suppose to use cloud computing for physics / destruction? If this is something new and groundbraking in games it is not a huge surprise problem arises. There is no winning in Star Citizen PU so supporting the project with $27,000 doesn't matter other than it helps the project. These guys who are able to support the project with bigger amount of money are not any more near "winning" the game than people who supported the project with $35. I have not been following threatening case you mentioned but if the threatening really happened, hopefully they will find the person and (s)he/he gets judgement according to law as should. These sick people doesn't represents any of the gaming communities they belongs to.
  7. Good. I mean it is great that Microsoft give developers time the game requires. I wouldn't mind if five years of development would become a new norm for reqular AAA games if it would mean them to be more ambitious, versatile, deep, content rich and problem free.
  8. Monthly Studio Report: May 2018 Alpha 3.2 has entered a Evocati testing phase. I would assume it will go to wider testing around week before being pushed Live.
  9. Unreal Engine GDC 2018: UE4 Vulkan Updates and Tips Pretty nice improvements over Direct 3D 11 on AMD. Feral Interactive is using Vulkan on their Linux ports and X4: Foundation and Star Citizen should use as well at some point.
  10. Some new X4: Foundation screenshots: https://www.egosoft.com/games/x4/screenshots_en.php Twitch channel, on June 20th at 19:00 CEST (18:00 BST, 12:00 CDT, 10:00 PDT). ... and of course happy 30th birthday Egosoft!
  11. Hmmh, E3. It is not kind of conference for my kind of gamers but I hope there will be some interesting games to look forward. - PC Gaming Show; Elite: Dangerous and Klei Entertainment - Cyberpunk 2077 - Bethesda: 'Starfield'
  12. "And… you’ll be able to explore it all for yourselves on June 28 Summary of features: New Ship: Challenger The Alliance continue to refine their warships in the face of the looming Thargoid threat. The Alliance Challenger, envisaged as a frontline combat vessel, has stronger armour than its Chieftain counterpart and will be able to soak up a significant amount of punishment. Wing Missions First introduced in Chapter One of Beyond, we are introducing a Wing Mining Missions for you and your fellow Commanders to take on! Installation Interactions In a similar fashion to the Megaship interactions, which were introduced in Chapter One, Commanders will now be able to scan and interact with Space Installations. Scan – Scanning the installation will allow Commanders to see what they can interact with: Turrets, Comms Arrays and Cargo Bays. Turret hack – Disable turrets protecting other potential hackable points. This will deactivate security measures put in place to protect the Comms Arrays and Cargo Bays. Comms array – Get tradable data from the Comms Array. Cargo bay – Fire a limpet on the Cargo Bay to unlock and steal commodities and materials. Tech Broker Tech Brokers will allow commanders to unlock large weapons versions of the existing guardian tech weapons. These Tech Brokers will issue blueprint requests to collect Guardian data as well as materials and then, once delivered, will unlock certain Guardian modules of weapons for purchase. Will you turn you weapons on Thargoid or use them to pirate rival Commanders? Thargoid Thargoids continue to be an intergalactic menace! With the Alliance introducing a new ship, the Thargoids intend to up their game too, introducing new Scouts that will buff other Scouts and increase their combat efficiency." - Frontier forums Doesn't look too big game changer changes to me but I definitely will get back in game and give them a try. It has been a while since I last lauched E:D but it is always good to get new reasons to get back in game again. I still hope to see big changes coming at some point but what I have read there is nothing announced for this year yet. Usually Frontier Developments has their own streams during E3 so who knows what they have to show ...
  13. I'm absolutely fine crowdfunding projects asks support as they find best. Some projects has high price pledges additional to "normal" ones and some has PayPal or other paymant systems open so people can support the project with as much money as they want. Those who supports the project with $27,000 gets just ships I want to earn in-game and most of them are ships I don't need or want anyway. I wouldn't have gained anything by supporting the game with more money than $45. Star Citizen has gave me great experiences already so I don't have much to complain. I look forward other games to provide similar experiences but so far it looks like there are no alternatives for Star Citizen. Maybe E3 will change this, we will see.
  14. The game will be the same to me no matter if I will give them $45 or $27,000. The development goes forward and that's all I care. Other people can support the project by pledging as much as they wish and even get The Completionist package or buy all the same ships one by one if they like - it is nothing away from me. Sharing information how the projects goes forward, new releases people can tests etc. are topics I'm interested. I'm sure there will be lots of discussion about unfinished games during E3 and discussion how their development progress when ever the developers gives info about it.
  15. It is just updated The Completionist package. Those individuals and organizations who are able to support the project with that amount of money are fine to do so - why would I care? I'm interested about the game itself. I supported the project with ~$45 and I'm interested to follow the development of the project and testing it as much as I can. To me it has been a great experience so far already. Until there is other alternatives for Star Citizen I will continue following and testing the project. Maybe rumoured Bethesda's 'Starfield' could be the next space game I will get interested in. If the project exists and it provides the same experience as Star Citizen I'm ready to make a purchase for sure.
