Star Citizen / Re: That time of year

Anyone else in 3.0? I tried it briefly over the weekend. Some cool aspects, but man, the graphics looked terrible even after I upped the settings. Then I got stuck in a crash loop every time I tried to fire my guns, so didn't make it much farther than that.

I have an oculus rift and have played eve valkyrie on it, the game definitely  shows the potential of vr in a space/flight sim. Being able to follow the target by turning your head while you bring the ship around completely changes the feel of a dog fight.

Thanks for the report... and a Jakelogan sighting! (I totally heard your voice in my mind when I read this..)

Dare I ask what "battle rope" is?

I was trying to decide the same thing, as I was curious too.

I've done it with my nephew a few times, but hardly can say I'm active...

So EVE: Valkyrie was the fighter pilot VR game that most of you probably knew about. Now they are launching "Warzone", which adds standard displays into the mix, so you can fight with VR or your standard gaming rig. Anyone checking this out?

I'm back on the wagon, but I know SN is alive and well in WoW. Axblood still runs weekly raids. If you join the Discord server, you can get hooked back up

They're not going to let PC's into that party though. All the PC gamers would kick the butts of the console gamers...
not after the xbox has mouse and keyvboard support... They would still kick the poo outta the playstation fools, though.

Which might be why XBox has taken so long to get the K&M support though. It makes me wonder...

Microsoft will relent and keep kicking that can down the road to avoid all the crying and gnashing of teeth and having to reset the "ez mode" of games that are designed for controllers?
-or-
Microsoft will see a fast way to sell a LOT of K&M combo's to all the people who want to stay competitive in the new world...

Just can't bring myself to play an FPS on a console. I fail at the controller.

That said, I did pre-order Destiny 2 for the PC and will be dabbling with that. Mostly due to Ironhawk doing some of the art for it and gently twisting my arm, but I've heard enough good things about it that it should be fun to fool around in regardless.

Of course, it still requires putting down my glue and paint brushes and grabbing my mouse, so we'll see how well that goes
that's ok. Microsoft is currently working on bringing mouse and keyboard to Xbox One :D

I like the sound of it!

As Ded says though:

I wish we could play across platforms.

I hope my pilot record matches my driving record. Zero moving accidents (I've been hit while parked though) and 20+ speeding tickets!

What's this blowing up thing you speak of?   :mutilate:
Surely you don't think these things are going to get out of the hanger without a scratch with folks like Pyldrvr flying them. He'll be half blind with cataracts and Dedsquirrl will be shaking so bad from DT's that we'll be lucky to get a shot off before we're filing an insurance claim.

With some of the early conversations about insurance, it sounds like there could be delays in getting a replacement ship depending on how common it is. Rare ship takes longer for custom components to get fabricated into your replacement. Common ship is probably sitting in a showroom and can be immediately sent out. More like "real world" replacement rather than 'poof, new ship in your garage'.

In which case, we could be in luck with all those retaliators. Even if we can only fully crew 1-2 at a time, after we blow them up, we go get the next pilot's ship out of the garage and crew that one :)

The Aquila looks to be a well rounded ship, nice choice!
I have the Constellation Phoenix from the original Kickstarter, but I'm hoping to pull components out of my Carrack if I want to explore with it. I really like the look of a Constellation for a solid explorer that can be crewed but small enough to be solo'd. I agree with Horns, good choice Alphy.

Skipping the bomber for now
Considering it's still rather questionable what kind of use we will be able to get out of a bomber, maybe not a bad idea!

You can always come join me in the Retaliator while you wait for the bomber of your dreams :)
