    I guess some tech leads not pushing back at people enough. This game always had some feature creep run amok vibe to it.

    I am not sure container streaming is even going to help solve the problem anyway, considering the actual scale that this is supposed to be on, the amount of players that should be playing concurrently, AND that it's all meant to be real-time. I'm not a professional by any means, but my guess would be that network/memory lag would cause things to not load correctly, which in turn would lead to further and further problems. Seeing how some things aren't loading correctly now, I do wonder what all that will be when they manage to add OCS.

    Joking aside, this is literally that right? I for one support them for drilling down into the core appeal of Mass Effect.

    It will be [that DG game ] about tranny and gay armada taking attack on heterosexual part of space. Our main character is tranny space Gaylord wih brave team of similar characters and player role is to make space into one big rainbow experience of weird love. All heterosexuals will be depicted as nazis and intelectual low collective of various rednecks.

    Some brave soul should really make this parody game.

    "Space Gaylord and his loyal sidekick Xir Transperson fight the Intergalactic Patriarchy"

    Basically fighting those guys

    Now I don't even know what brings more shame to a person, being a happy Star Citizen backer or being one of Subverse.

    Indeed. That just means you have an interest in erotic works of art.

    There are no players because there is no game.

    Jeeeeezus. Are you also waiting for Bitcoins to hit $30000 or Trump to be impeached?

    ANY DAY NOW!

    Look at that retard at 27:30 in the video.

    When can I have a pet volleyball in the game *soylaugh*

    Dude.

    That's like me asking when can I have a fuzzy dice in my Bugatti Veyron.

    WHERE IS THE FUCKING GAME?

    Everything in this video is so fake :lol:

    Fake developers talking meaningless shit about fake technology, fake interviewers asking fake questions, fake people pretending to be excited about a game that will never exist.
    It's cringeworthy like watching one of those scripted trash shows in TV.

    At this point y'all are just willfully ignorant and shitposting considering there's a free flight event where you can play the game for free every 3-4 months. I notice no one ever posts those dates or posts about trying it out. There are legitimate concerns about Star Citizen but "where's the fucking game" is not one of them.

    That's from the last one. Sadly, he didn't post his experiences even though we asked. I do recall someone posted about the free weekend prior to that. It's just that it's hard to get excited about a broken tech demo that hasn't got a bare minimum of gameplay loops to justify a download of a hundred or so gigs. Besides, most people haven't been upgrading their computers to keep up with SC-specific hardware demands, like industry-grade SSDs, newest GPUs and so on, so even if they'd download and try it, the legit concerns would be "This thing didn't even launch/this thing took 3 hours to load and then crashed/This thing has the worst FPS rates I've seen in a couple of decades"

    Might be better off with people just shitposting.

    Star Citizen hasn't been a 100GB install/download in like two and a half years since the delta installer was implemented in late 2017.
    [​IMG]

    Regarding hardware
    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PyTdyX
    https://www.newegg.com/p/27N-003A-00010?Description=RX 580&cm_re=RX_580-_-9SIA4RE93K4231-_-Product
    $402 for a Ryzen quad core system, 16GB of high speed memory, a 480GB SSD and a graphics card that will run anything you throw at it 40-60FPS maxed out (Star Citizen included) for less than five dollars the difference of a Playstation 4 Pro and a hundred bucks less than the One X. Add another $50 by doubling the video memory in that 580 and it'll run everything at 1440p.
    Nothing about it is unreasonably demanding.

    So you suggest people shell out $402 to try out a tech demo? Well okay, nothing unreasonable at all.

    You missed out the graphics card on pcpartpicker, so the final price is 511 dollars.

    There's two links in my post. The 580 I linked is $109
    https://www.newegg.com/p/27N-003A-00010?Description=RX 580&cm_re=RX_580-_-9SIA4RE93K4231-_-Product
    Total: $402

    I suggest having acceptable hardware for TYOOL 2019 before shitting on the game's optimization and system requirements because it doesn't run on your Pentium 3. As long as you've built a PC in the last five to seven years, it should meet the system requirements just fine.

    There is absolutely nothing unreasonable in the suggestion that the audience for this game should already have an SSD either (and if you don't, get one, they're less than ten cents a gigabyte these days).

    Oh there's a tech demo that only level 5 Thetans who donate a minimum of $1000 and submit to 3 auditing sessions can join, every few months?

    Well yeah excuse me, that's definitely the same as an actual game. Totally. Pardon my ignorance.

    Lol. So I guess my PC that runs everything I want on Ultra needs an upgrade just because some amazing people took CryEngine 2.something and tried to squeeze a space sim into it and now are admitting they kinda can't do it with the current tech in their own videos. Yeah okay, whatever you say man. I guess they really optimize it well, but it's my Pentium 3.

    I don't really know how to break it to you so I'll give you an example.

    You see, I'm a huge fan of Transport Tycoon, and TTDX. I love them, and wish there were games that would play like them but would look modern. I usually buy a Yet Another TTDX Clone and end up disappointed.

    Now imagine that Chris Sawyer would come back and pitch it on KS, end up with success, set up his fundraiser site and started selling trucks, planes etc in a game to keep the funding rolling. At the same time the whole thing would run like trash (though it would look like whatever the best looking driving sim it was in 2014), have a near-non-existent gameplay loop, and have crazy supporters coming to every forum and telling how everyone should try it out and upgrade their PCs because LOL R U A PC GAMURRRR OR NOT OLOLO 1440P GAMING FUCKING SCRUBS. It would also promise the most amazing tycoon game in the history of everything.

    Now, I, as a huge fan of this dead niche genre, could possibly be a big dummy and buy into it.

    However, everyone else that isn't? They'd probably call me a big dummy and have some laughs about Transport Tycoon Citizen Persistent Globe that is still about half a decade away from any kind of completion and how maybe picking Unity 1.3 wasn't the best idea for an MMO and nobody wanted an MMO to begin with.

    Do you see what I am getting at here?
