No Man's Sky looks boring as gently caress

the worst words in the video game industry right now are "procedurally generated"

Any time you see the words "Procedurally generated" you can just mentally sub in "Boring and really loving generic" and be completely right 99.99% of the time.

(I'm not actually certain of a procedurally generated system that results in cool and interesting stuff but I'm sure at least one must be out there somewhere).

Wasn't this how they made the dungeons in Diablo? At long as there's a story tying everything up and giving you some (optional) goal it doesn't have to suck. poo poo, even Minecraft is fun to explore for a good while.

Diablo rifts/dungeons are a random combination of pre-designed pieces so that they fit together in different ways.

And yea, hyperbole aside, so long as there's something else to actually be the focus of the game it's probably OK, but invariably the stuff that actually hypes of procedurally generated XYZ is using that in place of actual content, and not as a background/suplement to it.

Names and loot drops can be randomized pretty funishly.

Also Diablo's random loot name pool often produces amazingly funny results.

I started the launcher and saw there's a new version out. Also saw that you can buy some special guns with UEC spacebux or REC points. Do I want to buy these guns for my Hornet or are they poo poo? And what's the difference with UEC and REC?

uec is the currency you buy with real money right now. REC is what you get from playing the game.

Yeah, he was a major part of helping them with the cryengine and was on The Last Great Starship (just like Firefly cancelled after one series)



Derek Smart broke the news too which is going to annoy them.

Wandering Samurai also did MW:LL, aka the best Crysis mod of all time and the Mechwarrior game we should have gotten with combined arms instead of MW:O.

okay that makes sense

i guess the artists could get a pass but i feel like it would be hard to brag about your star citizen portfolio as a developer :stare:

i guess you could sell it as "look, this was a mess and I helped make it not a mess by doing X, Y, Z"

"Developer" is a pretty broad term that doesn't have much meaning beyond "Works on a game in some capacity."

Star Citizen's most obvious faults are all in the game director and designer's department: Every dumbass thing like drink mixing minigames, the whole choice about maximum immersion at all times over "fun", poor balance in AC, etc.

Technical achievements have all been pretty impressive, even though some of them are of the "Well holy poo poo that was a lot of work instead of just doing X, but it's pretty impressive that you got Y to work" variety. Others like the damage modeling on ships is cool as hell.

I think so. I remember Goonrathi Goons getting Cowcasters avatar changed and someone mentioning in the SC thread at the time it was idiotic because she could just get it changed for free.

This keeps getting brought up but it never happened. The infamous OFFSITE AVATAR FUND was buying avatars for people like Karl_Ramscheiss or w/e his name is, because goons were getting probated for trolling idiots like him out of the thread and it was super loving obnoxious because the thread in those days attracted hordes of them.

What does Christ Roberts even do? Does he program or anything, or is he an ideas guy.

He looks at a finished ship then sends it back to get totally re-done for the 8th time.

The he congratulates himself on his high standards and dedication to total immersion.
