It wasn’t that bad LK. Tom actually did a rant for 20 secs. I had to hold my hands to my dogs ears.

I really wish Tom had waited for the new update to get some patching and development time. It’s a sad reality of PDS’s development model that these things have to be out to the public for awhile, often months, before they’re really brought up to snuff. The best solution if you don’t want to be a beta tester is to wait awhile before playing. No, you shouldn’t have to, but it’s the way it is. The end result is usually worth the wait, I find.


#1719

Yeah, Tom made a mistake expecting that 2.5 years of support will make Stellaris a good game, it should have been 3 years. That’s the sweet spot!

A major overhaul on this scale is functionally a new game, but go ahead and be snide if that makes you feel good.


#1721

You can also tell me that they didn’t have much resources or they didn’t have enough time. It changes nothing, they brought it on themselves. All that matters is that after 2.5 years of development and selling additional content for the game they have me play an unpolished inconsistent mess with impotent AI. If you’re giving them a pass because of some reasons then be prepared to pay for new features for unfinished product forever.


#1722

You’d have a point, except that prior to the most recent update the game was in fantastic shape and the AI was the strongest its ever been. Then they basically ripped out a third of the systems and replaced them with new stuff, so yeah, it’s going to take awhile to tune that. Should it be better tested before launch? Hell yes, but I already said that. You’re willing to put up with it or you aren’t.

Also, this whole conversation in hilarious. The folks in the Stellaris thread think I’m too hard on Pdox, you think I’m too easy on them, I must be doing something right.


#1723

Probably!
I check out Stellaris after each big update and always remain underwhelmed. Perhaps it’s a game that will be fine after they finish with it.


#1724

I sincerely hope so - on that I guess we can agree!


#1725

Hmm so what are we watching tonight Vin? Do you know?


#1726

Lets hope there is fishing!

Also pixels!

Maybe BELOW?


#1727

Fishing? Oh below would be interesting. That game looks super creepy.


#1728

Best played at night no doubt, with a pet in the room that randomly attacks your legs and makes you jump.


#1729

Just this poor cocker spaniel --but he will jump if Tom yells!

(I’ll take him out now and see you in a few)
