I don't think he was lying.  I think he was overenthusiastic.  He's not a charlatan, he just didn't know when to stop promising things without knowing if they could be delivered.

I feel the same about Peter Molyneux, except he never learned the lesson, and we just had to learn to take pretty much anything he said with a grain of salt.

But such is the world of video game creation.  It's not really an actionable offense. Nor should it be.  The second we punish these guys for dreaming, even if they're doing it out loud when they shouldn't, we tell them and anyone else to stop dreaming, and that's when what little creativity which remains in the field will die.

Has there been any kind of developer response to all of the negativity?

I want to like the game, I think there is potential. But its almost totally unrealized. After a couple of hours, you've had just about enough of work without reward. There is just nothing to get excited about  in the game-play. No anticipation, no real goals other than, "one more planet". No rewards for what you're doing. You're doing, for the sake of doing. And that gets old fast.
All the video's I've seen with the developer lying about the game, and yet I can't believe Steam wouldn't take some kind of action. They should.

And now it appears as if there is a limited number of discoveries you can make before it starts overwriting the old ones.  Cripes.

They need to purge old discoveries because with quintrillions of planets, the storage cost is going to be super high to be able to store all discoveries permanently.

But still it is surprising they only last two weeks. I thought they'll purge old discoveries from 6 months ago which is reasonable. Two weeks is probably too soon unless the developers count on people not playing more than two weeks or never return to the place they were in more than 2 weeks ago.

Urban exploring.  

urban exploring? What is that? I have visions of you walking into the wrong alley and getting a beat down for your exploratory nature.

Maybe catching pokemon. smile


Urban exploring is that thing where you go deep into either abandoned structures or get into usually unseen parts of used structures.  It's like city spelunking.

That's pretty cool.
By me that's called trespassing...

Okay, Punisher, maybe take some time before pulling that trigger.

It's not always trespassing.  Or, it's legally malleable, at least.

And, in fact, urban explorers can be a very valuable resource for companies and archeologists.

It's a dangerous hobby, for sure, and I'm sure there are some that cross into grey areas of legality (or right over it), but it's so far away from anything I would ever try, that I can't help but be impressed.

My version of urban exploring is just trying to find a place that makes a good burrito or gyro.   icon_biggrin

I want to be excited, but was chatting with EngineNo9 earlier on Steam today about how pretty much all these complaints/concerns were raised as early as the initial beta and onwards after launch. Ubi never seemed to acknowledge any of it. It like "move along, you'll love it," or some Jedi Mind trick where they pretended nobody was complaining about all these things.

So I'm curious if the numbers are going down, the Underground DLC isn't selling, some of the insane (imho) higher difficulty stuff later on simply doesn't seem much fun etc.  Perhaps the whole "how many scarves do you need? How many guns do you need that aren't all that crazy different or fun to use than the one before it?" etc. syndrome that makes the game eventually start to feel monotonous... maybe all that's sinking in now. Maybe having enemies who just seem to be wearing normal clothing but soak up bullets like a Tiger Tank doesn't visually make sense, and they realize it now.

I guess I just question whether it's too late to try to change course drastically. It's like trying to maneuver an ocean liner after it's already hit an iceberg.  icon_neutral
