Former.

To be honest, at least No Man's Sky has gotten massive updates since that makes it feel a lot better.

I was hesistant because most originally-PC games on console are kinda ass in regards to controls, but most reviews I read for the PS4 version said the controls were good and smooth, and they’re right, it works well. I would’ve gotten it on PC if my computer wasn’t a piece of shit.

Not just that, but city builders with controllers are usually hot garbage. That's why I refuse to play games like The Sims, RTS games, turn-based, and so on on consoles because they're the type of games with a million controls and things and feel leagues better on a PC.

I remember little kid me trying to play that SimCity game that came out on the Wii.

Frustrating times, though it was fun to make meteors crash everywhere by shaking the Wii remote.

It’s good, but the multiplayer is seriously lacking.

It’d be nice to see more than two gamemodes and a use for ground attack aircraft soon.

The lack of an Infinity-style co-op mode is really disappointing, even more so considering the PA brand director stated that they don't have any planned expansions for the multiplayer. What little is there did turn out to be more fun than I expected, though.

Strange that Red Bull doesn't mention the 27,000$ "micro"transaction or how it is nowhere near done.

See, that's the problem with SC, and I think I've talked about it in this thread before. I don't think it has anything to do with them not being able to put their vision to work and it has everything to do with them making the worst decisions when it comes to engine and software. The biggest problem I can see is that they used Unreal for their giant space sim. Unreal, the engine known most for, and working best when used for, first-person shooters. When they finally did decide to make the FPS, they changed the base game to try and alleviate some of the jank and didn't tell the contracted studio who was making, making the shooter incompatible with the base game.

Getting Unreal to work in an MMO context is a huge pain in the ass, Roberts has said as much. But they're too far in to dip out and try again, so they have to make due, and I have this really unfortunate feeling that all these problems are going to either make the game vaporware, or when it finally does come out it will be garbage.

Anyone here remember the days when Crisis was THE game to get your system to run, except nobody ever could? Well what's the modern equivalent? Like what game is the modern day OMG MY PC CAN ACTUALLY GET 10 FPS THAT'S AWESOME! game of 2019?
Purpelia does not reflect my actual world views. In fact, the vast majority of Purpelian cannon is meant to shock and thus deliberately insane. I just like playing with the idea of a country of madmen utterly convinced that everyone else are the barbarians. So play along or not but don't ever think it's for real.

It ran pretty damn well on my brothers PC except for the occasional sound loss of anything directly in front of you. Not sure what that was about.

No idea what the 2019 one will be but i except Star Citizen will be the hyped up some point in the far future of the next millennium equivalent.
