Star Citizen dumps CryEngine four years into development, moves to Lumberyard for 2.6Star Citizen dumps CryEngine four years into development, moves to Lumberyard for 2.6

Bit of explanation: Both are, essentially the same engine. The difference is largely in licencing. I think they wanted to get away from Crytek.

That's nice to hear, because holy crap, usually, moving to a new engine is one of the worst things to hear about a game with such a development history.

Most players are fairly young, making it easy to exploit them.

Will you have the ability to choose which bumper to move though, or will you have to be satisfied with the option to build your own backdrop for the level instead?

Aaaand the next time something like this happens, people are gonna believe all the bullshit again, and spend money, and games will keep having more and more lies and broken features.

Yay.Reply

Not I!


Really, you just have to pay attention to how people are talking about their game. And there is a difference. For example, Molyneux I feel I still trust because I was always able to distinguish what he dreamed a game could be (and wanted it to be, ideally) from what it would be and adjusted my expectations accordingly.


That's the thing with Molyneux. He was never a liar. He was just crazy passionate about game design, and an irrepressible dreamer. Those who got burned with Godus deserved it, for not being able to manage their own expectations. And sometimes you'll have a game that's great at launch, but then ruined over time through mismanagement, making me long for the days of optional patches.


However, with No Man's Sky.... How can I put this? They were too political. It wasn't about being passionate with them, it was clearly always pandering. I didn't want to say too much before the game got closer to release and other people started seeing it. I just saw so much pandering. Almost every 'Jetfighters in Space!' tropey game is like this. If not all of them. The developers of them want to make money with cash-ins.


If they'd just been honest, or displayed any honesty, I could have forgiven them much. They were so political though, speaking in very vague terms and always spinning things. It's that kind of thing where people use so much corporate doublespeak it makes your head spin.


There's a difference between being an idealist and deliberately misleading people, and I think the latter is what happened here even without being cynical about it at all. It's just obvious.

If an official game would come out like this, from the original developers, I would cry tears of joy, but from a random modding team... who knows...Reply

Hello guys, I am Czech, so I was able pay this mod many months earlier by English translation was done, so I can say this is simple excellent project with exactly the same feeling like original Fallout 1 & 2 games. I suppose you will be not disappointed, so let's try it, it's for free :-)

nah, despite the fact the site is called PCGamesN, this is gonna be another console exclusive release...


EA has done a lot of sh*tty things over the years, but this is the one that makes me hate them the most...

I agree, EA 's PCphobic attitude sucks. Turns out this article was a case of: 'take a look at what you could have won'...
