Re: Books!

"You" by Austin Grossman is a smart, irreverent and witty look at the culture of video games from garage hobby to mainstream industry. As someone involved in the 'business" Grossman knows his subject inside and out. Forget the promotional blurbs about this book, however, as it is most certainly neit...

Re: Star Citizen

yeah true, but the thing is, who is really to blame for pushing game costs up? I think publishers have a lot to answer for, back in the day, I read that BG1 cost around 3 million to make, ok things have changed and prices have gone up a lot, but even so, we will be getting a feature rich game proje...

Re: Sui Generis (KS funded)

I have read the interviews and the updates along with every comment that Bare Mettle issued regarding game mechanics, gameplay, plot, and narrative structure.

I have also tried innumerable mods that ranged from excellent to... well, let's just say uninspired. Sad t...

Re: Planet Ownership

If our role within the game was to play a faction, or a company, or an entire species, I suppose I could get behind planet ownership and management. There are lots of games that do that and some of them do it well. However, within the context of the game (so far), we're playing a single person with...

Re: PC Skill System

There's also the skills that the players themselves have and bring to the game. The PC's financial progress will depend on the player's ability to figure out the best trade routes, and influence the markets. Their kill count will depend on their dogfighting skills. And the best thing is: improvemen...
