Hey Octopode, do you think this game will actually come out in the form in which CIG currently describe it?

This is not a trick or some sort of elaborate trap, I'm genuinely interested.

In a reasonably similar form as they have described, yes. In a form as people imagine? No.

What would it take to make you think it wasn't going to happen? I ask only because everything I've seen and played so far makes me think if we're lucky we'll get a single player game that's quite fun. I've not seen anything to suggest that the multiplayer stuff is going to be anything other than a mess.

When it has the same features Elite: Frontier First Encounter had give me a call.

Still can't believe it shipped without planets working.

First Encounters was a buggy piece of poo poo when it shipped, to the point that PC Zone's feature on it was illustrated with a picture of a turd wrapped in a bow.

It did let you dump cargo containers full of slaves onto the Eiffel Tower though.

I can't get over how the boss dumped his lovely actress wife in with actually famous people like Gary Oldman, Mark Hamill, and Gilian Anderson. It reeks of "see I am an actual successful actor, look at these other actors I'm in with! This means it's really quality and I'm good!"


Wing commander 3 had a porn star as one of the main cast alongside Mark Hamill, John Rhys Davies, the boss from Herman's Head, Tom Wilson and Malcolm McDowell. His casting choices are always hilarious.

I always viewed the C&C series a mix between Schlocky Hollywood Movie and solid RTS. The cutscenes were the schlock that was basically there to give the missions meaning, but it was done in such a way that it was so mediocre/goofy that it worked really well at the time.

Skip RA 3. It was complete and utter dog poo poo. Though to be fair, I did sort of buy it not because of being super hyped for a new Red Alert game, but because Randy Couture (UFC fighter) and Gina Carano (MMA fighter) were in it and they were god awful.

Why does reddit have such a fucken hardon for archiving the internet? Is it because they themselves post in a shitbox where the mods remove anything they don't like as soon as they can?

To be fair goons used to band together to archive sites as well. Admittedly it was a euphemism for DDOSing but still.
