I guess Gamespot doesn't view their game vids before they post them....smh  Dogfighting?  The pilot is lost in space and that's kinda hard to believe when his ship flies at the speed of smell.  At least get a guy that knows he's being recorded.....geeee ripes

This was a really bad choice for a clip. Nothing happens from the player's perspective other than jarring the ship around and making a couple of not-even-close shots at an enemy ship. Other than that...just kinda whirs the camera around and wanders aimlessly.

This is honestly among the worst I've ever seen anyone play anything.  Like watching basketball game where no one can dribble and aren't sure which team they're on.

Holly sh*t people its in early beta and its zero gravity space flight! Of course you can turn on a dime! I unlike most of you am actually a backer and have played it extensively. Its as close to REAL space sim as you can get for a beta. And when the game goes fully live you will all be drooling over it and wish you would have been involved from the get go.

I wouldn't call this a sim. The guy can turn on a dime and you can hear external sounds.

The combat in SC is alright but they need to make it more like actual dogfighting, in Elite you have to get behind your opponent and he will try to take off and pull a U to attack back, it leads to close calls with collisions and offers a more authentic dogfighting experience, also the radar in Elite helps determine where your target is more easily, it has to kinds of ways to tell how to orient yourself to get behing another ship which is really helpful.

I know SC is still early in development but they really need to find a way to make the dogfighting more exciting.

What kind of dog fighting gameplay video is this?  It's like a kid first learn how to play video games.

-Spends over $2k for a high-end rig to play Star Citizen

-Gets the same experience from playing Rogue Squadron on the GameCube

Backed Star Citizen for the persistent universe. Not so enthralled by pew pew pew.

You can tell that no one on this page played the game.

This site really needs to sort its video player system out. On my pc using chrome literally all the video stop 5 seconds in. And even on my droid device using firefox all I get is a black screen saying more info about this add. I don't seem to get these kind of issues on any other site

That interface looks terrible, the screen looks so cluttered I couldn't even begin to figure out where most of the information was. They should have a look at the Elite: Dangerous interface pretty much everything there is easy to understand and it doesn't cover up your entire screen.


Also was it just me or did this guy not seem to know where the throttle was, he seemed just to spin around like a space turret, except a space turret might at least fire its weapons once or twice.

Hmm, this doesn't look good. There's no sense of movement, it's feels like the ship is just spinning around on the spot.

I don't see any dogfighting, in fact I don't see any fighting at all. This video is a fraud.

Pathetic. I'd rather play Star Fox 64 than this crap.

lol!  and this is PC virgins' holy grail, they are bitching about $9.99 DLC that only 15 ppl in the world will buy while themselves are spending $5,000, $10,000 or $15,000 real cash for one single in game item for a "game" that will release in 2020 with 2010 graphics, lol.....  ok......

Dear Mr Roberts,


Could you please kindly release your WC series on Xbox/PS3 remastered? 


I'm curious why that hasn't happened yet given the awesomeness of said games


thanks

This game is fun and improved a lot since first release of DFM and we still have one year until Squadron 42 comes out . However , this player needs a lot more practice .

@NeverMore0 Sounds are simulated to the pilot similar to how they where in Shattered Horizon.

@apolloooo 1. The game is in alpha at best, you normally don't see a game in alpha because ALL game alphas suck balls. Go look up some of the test maps from Wind Waker, that is the equivalent of something from further along in a typical games development then this video.

2. The guy playing sucks balls.

@Thathanka I think that's largely because the ship really is just spinning around on the spot!  I'm not sure whoever was flying it knew where the throttle was.

@GameFan1983 And yet the game seems even better now because we know a Muppet like you will not be  playing it :)

@GameFan1983 The average level of donation is $100. Not $15,000. You can't reference a single super high package on their site that only 3 people have purchased, as your reference point. 
At least an intelligent person wouldn't have done that.

@GameFan1983 I hope 1983 isn't the year you were born in... because its immensely saddening knowing a grown man like yourself is a) Trol.ling on a gaming site b) Naming gamers "virgins'" on a gaming site.

@Thathanka  ...or the trigger.  Honestly this is a pretty poor attempt at a gameplay vid.  Just made me feel a bit motion-sick.

@bldgirsh @Sushiglutton Actually I'm serious ;)! This looks sooo boring. Star Fox had style, a sense of speed/momentum and plenty of character. This is just an engineering project. I'm sure the modeling is realistic. As a game it is indeed pathetic!

It's incompatible with Dolphin, you'll get blackscreen on launch. And Rogue Squadron isn't a sim.

@prats93 umad? umad? umad?  is what I see most when people have nothing to say in their counter argument so they resort to a desperate comeback.

Star Fox is an Arcade cartoony game.,  this is a space sim,  you're comparing COD to ARMA.  I'm pretty sure if he was to make arcade no one would back the game,  I
 know I wouldn' t.

And what exactly is this game "simulating"? Pew pew space combat? lol.

MAD_AI

@prats93 6DOF, Newtonian physics, G-force, essentially what a space sim is meant to be. You'd surprised to know that many,  over 500,000 as of now,  actually like space sims.
