Looks nice, I might give it a go when it goes to budget release if i have the time to play at that point :-)

There have been waaay too many half-baked releases from all angles in recent years to the point it feels only Indy studios actually release complete games, so waiting means only benefits - more/most bugs removed, final live balance completed, most if not all DLC released, additinal monetization methods have time to be uncovered/introduced (some games have added their microtransactions weeks AFTER launch) AND a cheaper purchase price to boot.

These days, after years of sketchy releases, Live Service vapourware and post launch checanery I can't see the detrement in waiting for a title to milk the market, do its ducking and diving and reach budget release with its bugs, issues and monetization tweaks exhausted and played out. The AAA market has done it to themselves and although i'm still willing to wait in the queue i'm not visiting the carnival on Day One anymore and if i hear the corn-dogs are a suspicious shape i can then avoid attending at all.

If your video "Preview" finished with a score, I think I would have given it an honest 5 out of 10.
Watching this I was substantially disappointed, no sea shift in gaming. (and I played a lot of fallout and elder scrolls)
It makes me fear for the next elder scrolls.

I expect to see Fallout 4, just better graphics, same combat mechanics and a nice deep and wide galaxy to explore!
It will be this I hope although with the vastness I question if it will have the depth.
If that's what it is really, I'm gonna enjoy it!

Thank you GL, good vid!

I wonder if it will get 20+ releases like Skyrim, I feel like it won't have that charm.

Honestly...I found it very average, which is of course without playing the game myself. I 100% think that playing Star Citizen has moved the bar I judge games with a lot higher.
This is a AAA from a legendary studio and I found myself underwhelmed. There was only ship building that Star Citizen isn't going to do. Everything else it seems SC is going to do... and seemingly better at that.
Then you take in the seemless transitions to planets. Better fps, better ship combat, seemingly more in depth mechanics like mining....the mmo aspect....
It really puts into perspective for me just how hard making a game like SC really is. My appreciation for CIG has been increased massively in watching this.
Its not trying to be SC I know that, I'm sure it will be lots of fun too. But I'm honestly not very excited about it...and that makes me kind of sad
