Why don't they just release it as "Goat Simulator in Space" and get over with it.

Honestly those pictures make SC look great. I can just imagine MY IMMERSION :gonk: Shitizens crying as you mow them down in your space buggy.

It's not enough to make me buy a jpeg but it's the first bit of gameplay we've seen that looks in any way fun.

If CIG doesn't start selling more jpgs they're going to run out of money!

I'm excited to see how desperate they get to move jpegs and how much they'll shaft original backers.

Oh my loving god please stop. This constant retelling of goon-on-goon drama crossing two games that no ones gives a gently caress about is the least entertaining thing in this entire thread and that is a low bar.

That looks way better than the teaser trailer for Citcon and a bit too janky to be faked prerenders. CIG is pioneering reverse development.

Do you guys think pretending to be married to someone and also posting pics of the person in question is punishable by law?

If you love your jpegs that much I'm sure no one will mind if you pretend you're married to one. ADTRW does it all the time.

On Why Redditors Just Don't Get It - A primer to any redditor considering buying an SA account for spying





Look you mongs since you evidently read this thread let me try to explain this to you... SA is like a wolf dog mutt pack and when you're running with the pack you will occasionally get a playful bite. It's to be expected, it's a bonding thing, in order to fit in you have to take any such nibbling it in the spirit it was made. You people overthink everything, sometimes a funny pic is a funny pic, you start foaming at the mouth in outrage and then get all surprised when the whole pack turns on you in the blink of an eye. It's how we can always tell you fuckers a mile away, you keep bringing attention to the stuff that pushes your buttons, to you everything is serious business and you can't help but getting all butthurt over the dumbest poo poo.

TL;DR: He can take a joke but I'd love if your precious Messiah or his wife dropped by one day, see if they could deal with teasing in an adult manner. From what I've seen so far I doubt it.

I like this analogy because also goons sniff each others bums a lot

CIG needs to do like Blizzard did and literally tell people not to waste all their money on jpegs. Blizzard did something where they told players to "enjoy all things in moderation, even World of Warcraft", or something to that effect, which was a nice touch. Chris Roberts is the opposite, he just wants more and more. :(

I don't think a company that sells $15K jpeg packages cares about moderation or their customer's best interests. They're quite happy milking their whales dry

Kind of amazing how people still take GIG seriously after the CEO posts an insane ranty diatribe and an internet lawsuit trying to bully a website into a retraction. Then the website says lolnop and we never hear another peep about it.

A Kickstarter is definitely not a joke, and I have no intention of making light of it. And it can be a tough and emotional thing for gamers to go through, speaking from personal experience. And I know that it's often much harder on the gamer than on the developer. However, I also know that it doesn't necessarily turn you into a sad, depressed sack of tears for the rest of your life. People can move past it, and heal.

Although hopefully not before posting a lot about it

I have no idea whether the fluid dynamics minigame is the drinks mixer or not. It could be something completely different.

But it's an intriguing possibility that some programmer spent a bunch of time making the space-liner drink game have realistic liquid simulation because Chris was like "NO NO NO I want those drinks to spill REALISTICALLY when the pilot maneuvers wildly at the same time you're pouring a Hairy Roberts!"

It's not that it's cool to hate on Fallout 4 it's just that everyone kind of already knows Bethesda's style of game, and since Witcher 3 just sort of strolled in and dunked on every other open world WRPG out there some people have higher standards now.

I know this is heresy and shows I'm a broken person but I couldn't get into Witcher 3. Felt like I was running between evenly spaced quest nodes for no reason except to level up so I can do the main quest stuff. Felt more like busywork clearing a map than a story experience. I've found most Bethesda games more immersive even with the potato faces and arrows to the knee.
