Any of you lads been playing it?
I'm having a great time at the moment despite what a lot of reviews say. Game was choppy at first but some graphical tweaking and now it's smooth as. I'll be honest, the 40 quid price tag is a bit steep for a game like this mind you.

Didn't take me to find a dick shaped alien either.

It looks like a neat idea and like the sort of thing I could sink a few hours into, but ultimately the price tag put me off. I'm not spendig £40 on a tech demo.

Nice idea, mediocre execution, not worth the £50 it's selling for on consoles. Felt like I'd seen everything the game had to offer within 5 hours, just a very repetitive survival/resource mining game. Feels very much like a £20 indie game, but with an unfortunately high AAA price tag. Maybe if they keep adding stuff to it, it might end up feeling worth it. But as other people have said, it's a tech demo with very barebones gameplay.

Looks like an unfortunate victim of its own hype. I think it's the first game from that studio and it's a decent one at that, but for some reason a certain amount of people convinced themselves it would be a big enough deal to eclipse both Half-Lifes and make EVE: Online look kiddie's sandpit.

I think people a) got overexcited about the generative malarkey and b) conflated it with Star Citizen, which may well make EVE look tiny and empty.

I've been naming stuff yea, the game gives things it's own fancy names like we give to every species of whatever, but you then can upload these so if others somehow come across your planet they see those names and can't b changed.
When you upload these discoveries you can either name them something else like Phil's mom or the like (There are some word filters though) or leave it as their generated name.

Elite : Dangerous has been out for yonks and offers the proper Space Bloke experience, for obvious reasons. Not sure why we're all bothered about anything else when we can be playing that already.

Does Elite let you land on planets full of bonkers shit though? That's where the appeal of this one comes from, sadly it seems to miss the mark a bit.

I would love a game set in the Mass Effect universe, where you just nip about exploring different worlds, stopping off at various space stations to buy new guns from seedy alien mercenary types. That's what I loved the most about the first game, where you'd bomb about in your BigTrak and then OH SHIT SANDWORM and such.The lore made it all seem so alluring and mysterious, but they never capitalised on that potential.

Oh so he's got an excuse at least. I just heard it and assumed he's one of those geek-hipster wankers who talks to too many colonials on Skype and deliberately affects aspects of their accent in order to make his Youtube channel more appealing to a global audience.

It's not their first game, they're the people behind Joe Danger, and a lot (most?) of them worked together at Criterion.

And a good chunk of (admittedly probably quite naive) people were convinced it would be a huge game changer, yes, but it wasn't all self-inflicted. The game was promoted in a ludicrous way. I have no idea what it was doing being showcased on late night American talk shows, for example.

Murray quite clearly was uncomfortable giving away details, but instead of doing the sensible thing and not talking about the game until he actually knew what he could say, he continued giving half answers and fanning the flames of unrealistic expectations. And outright stating falsehoods at some points. I'm sure he didn't intend to lie, but again, if you don't know what you can say because the finished product will be subject to changes, don't say anything.

I feel bad for him on some level. He undoubtedly wanted to make the game he hinted at as much as, if not more than, the people who now hate him wanted to play it.

Then again, he's probably making obscene amounts of cash from this, so also fuck him.

It's what I call the kind of geek who has a degree of success and popularity, and so styles themselves as a hip trendy media type rather than a plain old nerd with lots of Internet subscribers. Conversely it can also mean the kind of hipster who watches a lot of TBBT and plays Super Nintendo games in order to qualify as a geek. There's a lot of cross over between the hipster need to like uncool things in order to be cool, and the rise of trendy "geek culture" over the last few years.

Apologies if that wasn't immediately obvious, or is all in my head.
