What the gently caress is "The talk show at the end of the universe" supposed to even mean? I know it's supposed to be a reference but it doesn't even make sense in that context.

They're literally just throwing every space nerd meme against a wall and hoping it sticks aren't they

Isn't that how preorders work? Though I guess they're not usually what fuels a AAA game's sales.

Publishers like pre-orders because they have guaranteed money up front. I'm no business scientist but I imagine this is good for sales projections and garbage like that. They don't tend to actually fund game development with them.

Derek Smart I want to try Universal Combat since it's exactly the kind of space game I want. The prospect is super daunting, though. Is there anything I need to read aside from the manual. Are there any good forum posts or any supplements you'd recommend. I figure I may as well give it a try since at least it's not a fake game

Illectro just did a cool video on space engineers:

I agree with his earlier point that seamless surface to space transitions are really cool. Would orbit have been possible given sufficient lateral velocity?

It's my understanding that the planets in Space Engineers are kind of a hack job. I don't think you could orbit or anything.

Edit: Actually, maybe you could but I doubt it'd be worth doing for anything other than to say you did.

In tangentially related news, prestigious developer Peter Molyneux is back in the news after breaking his self imposed press ban in order to announce his new early access game - GODUS WARS!

No, he never finished Godus. But now he's out of money you see, so he cut 1/2 the features out of Godus and repackaged it for early access cash grab.

Molyneux has always been a pie in the sky idiot dreamer, but I never thought he was slimey. This is some Crobbers level poo poo.

Was he not very heavily involved in fable 2 or something? That game loving ruled but everything before (since 2000 or so) and after has been super dissapointing.

It's so weird seeing the same talking points reiterated by different people, in different parts of the internet. I've seen that "Now that they have the pipeline, things will be so much faster!" comment what seems like a dozen times now from seemingly different posters on different videos and on reddit.

On another note, it's really funny to see them suddenly take an interest in doing the "Making Of" feature after they began facing some criticism about it. I wonder if it's also one of the Kickstarter promises that they're more legally obligated to uphold rather than the extras they shat out on their own page.

I feel like that TOS is just written at Chris Roberts' express command and is like everything else with the game. The people that made it know its poo poo and won't work, but that's what they were told to do.

Promising to never sue the company for any reason, under any circumstances just by buying the product?

That's just funny.

iirc there was some court decision upholding forced arbitration in leiu of lawsuits a few years back. Though I think that was for, like, actual contracts and stuff. Of course that doesn't matter since rsi doesn't have any of that in the tos it's just "NO TAKE BACKS AND NO SUING OKAY?" but im no lawyer.
