Unfortunatley my prediction that they wouldn't be capable of making tight moment to moment gameplay seems to have come true. That looks very slow and unexciting.

We got to see about 30 seconds of a couple people playing a buggy alpha build that later crashed.

Way to draw conclusions about a final product not to be released for the next 1.5-2 years.

I don't get how nobody realizes that this is a tech demo with two ai drones who didn't even fight back... Pretty sure Roberts said he was aiming for A LOT of people fighting at a time. Like 50 or so...

Don't care if there are 50 thousand people fighting at the same time. Flying lacked any sense of speed or momentum. The weapons looked and sounded dull. I get it's an alpha, but so far it looks awful and I don't think there's any indication it will be cool by launch.

@Sushiglutton:

You do realize there's a thing called G-Forces. They're going for a realistic approach when G-Forces will effect a pilots actions in Star Citizen so you're not gonna see amazing 360's, 180's and barrel rolls out of the blue.

As for the sound, it sounds like every other explosion/bullet sound effect that has been used in numerous space battles in movies, tv shows and games. I even got a slight deja vu of some sound bits from what they used for BSG when Vipers would open fire.

This brings up more questions which I know smart people may know the answer to but if you're in space with very little to no gravity then how can there be any meaningful g-force? We can withstand quite a lot of g-stuff but to remove gravity by even just 50% wouldn't this mean we would be able to make exponentially sharper and faster movements?

There would be a force exerted on the pilot based on the relative momentum and change of direction of the ship. So to come to a full stop from maximum thrust, it would require equal amounts of thrust power in the exact opposite direction to stop it. The pilot, even if in a zero-g environment, should still feel the motion of the craft carrying them.

It's only "cool" to people who like a realistic recreation of what space travel several hundred years in the future might be like. This isn't meant to be the Call of Duty of space shooters... it's as close to what they can approximate flying a starship would be like.

And really, what is more rewarding... flying a ship with all the detailed controls of a real one through missions and hotzones, battling off other individuals or groups and successfully vanquishing them all with your many weeks of training and practice... or jumping into an on-rails experience where you push a few buttons, see a bunch of explosions and get congratulated for saving the universe?

Yeah I understand there will always be force applied to your body but in the video the ship couldn't have been moving very fast so would acceleration to light speed not be similar to accelerating in a sports car, meaning due to having almost no gravity you could accelerate much much more while only producing the same g-force as a fast car.

Maybe it was because the battle was close to a planet and it's gravity was stronger but I think they overdid the g-force a little, maybe some motion sickness but almost passing out? Seems a bit much.

The force applied to the body would depend on the acceleration. Accelerating to light speed (or near light speed, as theoretically light speed travel without special quantum exceptions is impossible I hear) at a fast rate would cause severe stress to the body (so much as there is no special exceptions like in Star Trek where they have this compensation mechanic and self-contained artificial gravity on the ship).

Granted, I am merely applying my knowledge of high school level physics and basic scifi tropes to this question. Physics has come a long way in the past decade, and I haven't been keeping up to speed (pun intended).

This game is turning into something amazing. And the one comment about having the backer/kickstarter model making all this possible, while under a publisher, they'd have to make sacrifices to meet the release schedule really hits home for me. This is how I want games to be made... for the passion of it, not because they need to make a marketable product for the general consumer.

Can't imagine there is much demand for an astrophysicist around the world. The few jobs there are going to be highly contested. This was probably a better paying job.

Landing on planets and exploring was already a plan . But now with extra funding they will add an expansion pack that will allow players to explore ENTIRE planet . On game's initial launch , it will have over 450 locations where you can land (all handcrafted) which includes cities , planets , asteroid bases , abandoned bases , underwater cities etc . There will be some limitations though . Since this is huge galaxy , so they can't handcraft everything , exploration of entire planets can only be made possible with procedural generation . Which will be added as expansion .

I may have a new rig by the time it comes out. I'm not sold on the game however, it has to be fun to me for me to be interested. "space adventure, trading and dogfighting in first person."

If it's more sim than action, I'll pass.

what exactly do you want from the game? If you're not into sim this game may just annoy you.

I want action! :P Seriously sims aren't my thing, so games like Civilization and the TW series are not games I enjoy.

This game plans to have intense single-seat fighter dogfights.. AND massive fights involving capital ships with player and/or NPC crews, requiring good coordination at different battlestations, and between fighter wings... AND boarding mechanics/ planetside on-foot combat (FPS.. This is done in the CryENgine after all)....

So you've got the action covered, if you want it. Or you can play as an explorer, searching for new jump points, new systems, new planets, abandoned colonies, shipwrecks etc. Or you can play as a trader, as an industrialist...

But if you're the sort of player who wants someting that is pick-up-and-play, easy-to-master, arcade-esque crap... This game isn't for you.

Sounds great if that's the case. My time for gaming is limited these days and getting into deep sim type games, like Civ 5 really isn't practical.

Quite a few alien species already known in the game's lore.

The Banu are friendly to humans (clan structure, a trader culture).

The Xi'An are reptilian humanoids. There was a long cold war between them and the human empire.

The Tevarin were vanquished by humanity and what's left of them has been assimilated by the human empire.

The Kr'thak (or something like it) are the Xi'An's arch enemies, and humans know close to nothing about them.

And then you have the Vanduul: a nomadic, warrior race, that threatens many human systems with their raiding parties. Their ships are impressive:

There are lot of multiple crew ships . The story starts on Idris Frigate , which is huge space ship then later in the story you'll go to Bangal carrier which is over 2 Kilometers long . Much bigger than Normandy , with plenty of time to interact with crew until you go to briefing room for your next mission . Not to mention your fellow Wing men will fly with you on each mission . Some missions will put you in single seated dog fighter , others will put you in multi crew ships manning turrets , others will be on ground FPS etc . Just like Wing Commander or Mass Effect , protagonist can communicate with your squad when on mission . Hell , if you play online or with LAN , your friends can take over AI and can control your squad member . You can play entire story like this . This is something that Mass Effect should've featured as well , instead they wasted their resources on PVE multiplayer .

There are a lot of exploration elements to this game as well . Exploring the unknown , cities , new star systems , landing on planets , finding abandoned bases , alien wrecks , there are going to be even underwater cities . And yes you can go wherever you want , it is fully open world .

While all that not only sounds ambitious but awesome as well, Bioware didn't waste resources on ME3s PVE mp, I spent more time in that that any other mp game all last gen. I still occasionally watch streams of it and do some solo-gold runs.

But back to Star Citizen, yes that all sounds great.

It would have been better than what we got in ME2/3, which was a glorified third-person shooter with "choices".
