How would opening the game up to the entire population of the gaming community kill a game? lol Would you like a tinfoil hat?

perhaps you should... oh I dont know, maybe read my comment to figure that one out, I explained it quite clearly.


but in-case you still can't grasp it, EVE has a huge issue with PLAYER RETENTION, most people stop playing even before their trial expires, or a few months after that at best, and they don't come back. they don't even talk about it. its like some dark time in their life.


I'm sure this can be best summarized with some analogy about a boat with a hole in it (EVE), and splashing more water on said boat (players) somehow magically fixing the hole in the boat?

I'm not sure why you guys are taking cues and content from Reddit when that list is tentatively being updated as people discover that the aforementioned missing features are actually not missing (like ringed and desert planets).

Also, OP of that thread on Reddit deleted everything.Reply

Exactly what I was wondering. People have been claiming missing stuff from day one, a lot of which has been found. And complaining because the stuff in the trailers isn't in the game is kinda dumb since we all know the galaxy has been re-seeded.


Some folders with reference to "Spawners" means nothing at all. There is no reason they aren't using spawners in the game now. Especially for sentinels, which, you know, respawn.


The game was stated to be single player. It never was multiplayer, but people got their hopes up anyway. It was said that you would "somehow" be able to see other players if you found them, it was never said you could play the game together like an mmo and gallivant around the galaxy in a guild.


And before launch they revealed that play testers were immensely confused and disoriented with rotating planets. IE: planets did rotate, they had to remove it for all the dumb people.

So that's why CS devs still refuse to abandon the dude only Cs and CTs. Every single female C or CT was cut.Reply

"every female C" ? I don't know about any 'counter' side in the game, only T and CT :P

Murray has been saying for a while now that it's not a multiplayer game, the game uses lobbies on your own instance of the game, that it's not an MMO and that meeting people works in the same way Dark Souls would.

This is all info that has been shared over and over and if you're getting upset about it, that's on you.Reply

How is seeing absolutely nothing the same as Dark Souls?

This is the problem I have against random cash shop loot boxes. So many games use them (including free to play games, like that MMO TERA that this website is advertising in the background right now) and I'm actually surprised nobody has threatened a lawsuit again anyone for doing this, until now.

Doubt I'll be buying it. Probably full of political BS. Probably main character is the person waking up from the "nightmare". She is probably half black, hates guns, and is a "feminist". Probably is "gender-less" and will be allowed to romance Male or Female crew mates. Probably hates her Dad too and thinks letting go criminals is "paragon" as long as they initiate dialogue before combat. I mean you just chased this bad guy down for about 3 hours of game-play and then the bad guy initiates dialogue and you get +3 Paragon for letting the terrorist go else you have to suffer a penalty and not be able to live in the ending scene...

I checked it out. There's like 2 women you can play as, versus the truckload of guys. Half the time when I click the play button it tells me it can't find any servers, and then when I get in I'm either watching people play for 10 minutes (even if I select "new game only") or I get disconnected shortly after the action starts.

I'll just go play H1Z1 lol

Stellaris review snippet How good is the Stellaris story?
Asking how good the story for Stellaris is, wouldn't really do it justice if I just said "Awesome." Because there is so much nuance to the lore in Stellaris that you can't just say it has one basic story. From little missions, to the faction you create, there are many different stories happening here. Aside from everything else that I love about Stellaris, this is in my top reasons for giving it such a high rating. Because even when things are going slow in development (during a game), there's almost always something interesting or surprising to read.

Grand Theft Auto V review snippet How open is Grand Theft Auto V to explore?
The GTA5 map is much, much bigger than those of the previous games. You can actually spend...I don't know, like 20 minutes driving around the entire map that is available to you. And that is, by far, not the only awesome thing about the game.
