To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand Metal Gear Solid. The political commentary is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of international politics most of the meaning will go over a typical gamer’s head.

When I want apt political commentary I usually go play Metal Wolf Chaos but MGS does indeed deliver on that front too.

The recent spate of communications regarding network code changes in recent patches, the emphasis on <magic word> network-related testing and scheduling the network god for a presentation to the faithful seems to be payback from the other devs and community managers for speaking out of turn.

1. You said netcode was working fine. So how about we tell everyone that it isn't fine by pointing out that it is being updated and needs focused testing.
2. We're gonna let you feed the wolves directly, instead of semi-anonymously via text.

That should send a clear message to any other devs who feel like speaking out of turn, but are not quickly replaceable. If they were deep in networking guys, I'm pretty sure he would have been disavowed and memory-holed by now.

Cloud Imperium Games LLC updated their California Statement of Information on 12/6/17 (2 years late).

The only changes of note are they finally notified the state that they are no longer on Sunset Blvd. and they changed the business activities from "Game Development and Publishing" to "Game Development"

So maybe they need a publisher now?

e: They also created a new LLC on 11/30/17. Roberts Space Industries LLC (a separate entity from Roberts Space Industries Corp)

The best thing about all the guys screaming for first person fidelity and maximum box-loading immersion is they're the same idiot morons who are going to do everything in their power to skip all that poo poo once it ends up in game.

The same thing happened in Elite - you can check the trade routes and find a loop trading poo poo for a couple thousand credits in profit per ton, OR you can look at the subreddit and realize that you can make 50 million credits in a single jump if you go to X system and spend ten minutes flipping the mission boards to pick up high paying transfers to the next system over. Every patch there's a dozen new posts about how to maximize your space trucking profit and it's all from the same braindead fuckfaces who complained about instant ship transfers.

Any would be developers out there. Never listen to your community, they will ruin your loving game. They will do everything they can to destroy it.

Playing games, watching movies, owning goons. 'sup


Pillbug

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the verse
Not a citizen was stirring, not even an Osiris;
The jpegs were hung by the computer with care,
In hopes that St. Roberts soon would be there;
The manchildren were nestled all snug in their wankpod beds;
While visions of space rape gangs danced in their heads;
And mamma in her bedroom, and I in my snoop cap,
Had just settled my smoothbrain for a soon to be out 3.0 nap,
When out on the landing pad there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from my wankpod to see what was the matter.

The comedy of games starts like this
Our dreams are way too big for the likes of Chris
And so Sandi, she divines this alternative
They'll sell fake ships and hope whoever buys them from their store
Is kind enough to buy some more
And, pledging, that's pretty much how it's been ever since

Now the Kickstarter left a few issues to address
Like, say, that most of the game hadn't even been thought up yet
So somebody's got to code the physics while I advertise more ships
I'd do it myself, but what, are you going to deal with the spergs?
He says as soon as he gets back from Paris, we can switch
It's hard not to fall in love with something so hopeless
Backers, I hope we don't end up regretting this

Comedy, now that's what I call pure comedy
Just wait until the part where they start to believe
That they can do almost anything
And some "all-powerful" being endowed this horror show with meaning

Oh, their ships are all the best
They worship the Devs and they're totally obsessed
With rape fantasies, updated ship stats, boring lore, an expensive and bland decor
And they get terribly upset
When you question their sacred texts
Written by woman-hating epileptics

Their languages just serve to confuse them
Their confusion somehow makes them more sure
They build fortunes bilking mental illness
And send out shills to maintain perceived allure
Why do they hate these Goons just trying to help them?
What makes these clowns they idolize so remarkable?
These morons are hell-bent on fashioning new lives
So they can go on without confronting their own

Oh comedy, their illusions they've no choice but to believe
Their horizons that just forever recede
And how's this for irony, their idea of being free is a prison of beliefs
That they never ever have to leave

Oh comedy, oh it's like something that a madman would conceive!
The only thing that seems to make them feel alive is a several hour drive
But the only thing that they request is something to buy to warp with
Until there's nothing left to theft
Just random pledges made simply out of spite
I hate to say it, but Derek Smart was right

In case you missed it, an earlier Cottee column about Star Citizen:
https://www.pcpowerplay.com.au/feature/the-star-killer,468095

quote:

One day a gamer with vivid memories of playing Wing Commander back in the 1980s entered an antique store and picked up a cursed monkey paw. Whilst inspecting the curio, he absent-mindedly said to himself: “Man, those old Chris Roberts space shooters were great, but I wish he had unlimited time and money to make a game that could truly live up to his vision.” With a sinister creak, one of the fingers curled. The shop-keeper rang up the purchase, and to the aging nerd spoke two ominous words: “No refunds.”
