That downgrade though, time is ticking CDP, if you don't deliver us the same graphics as you did to that 35 minutes video then I'm not preordering the game.

Fret not, it's all because of some terrible YouTube compression:


Marcin Momot "I believe some explanation is required here. Unfortunately this time we've encountered some horrible YouTube compression problems. At this very moment we are working on fixing this and will upload another version of the trailer as soon as we can. It will present much higher quality. I want to assure you that there will be no downgrade - I see this game every day - it looks stunning."

Hmmmm, how about a secret MMOFPS project that they were working on. With the cancellation of Titan being an evil ruse?


Failing that, a date for the Android Tablet version of Hearthstone would be just lovely thanks.

Personally, I prefer using the Nexus Mod Manager, as it is easier to install/uninstall mods whenever you wish. I then use that alongside BOSS for correcting your load order.


You could have a look at this MrJinxed, there's nothing packaged for you, but it does at least give you a really good head start on getting the modding up and running:

Thanks, I just might. That is if I ever find the time to play this game again. Or I might just wait until Skywind is out. Hmmm decisions, decisions.

The Fall: Episode 1 PC reviewThe Fall: Episode 1 PC review

That sounds really interesting, and not a million miles away from one of Iain M. Banks short stories, collected in State of the Art, Descendant.


Spoilers below...


"The protagonist is the sole survivor of a military attack on an orbiting base, unless you count the sentient environmental suit he wears and which manages to convey him to the surface of a nearby planet. Both man and machine are damaged, but they set out on an extended trek toward a ground base, during which the human learns that there is little difference between organic and inorganic life, that both are essentially systems with very similar programming. As the trek progresses, he and the reader are both less capable of distinguishing between the two personalities, although ultimately only the suit survives."

That sounds dead good. The Fall takes the premise in a different direction, obvs, because ARID has no conscious human to talk to. It sounds like both stories are about the deconstruction of a personality, though - only ARID is moving beyond her basic programming, rather than being boiled down to her essentials.

Jesus wept, you Star Citizen lot are a prickly bunch.


Article title: Just how alpha is the Star Citizen alpha?

Article lists a lot of issues with the alpha.

Verdict, the Star Citizen alpha is very alpha.

Article success!
