Sorry, it wasn't meant to be a rub in the face. I posted that here as a way to update the status of whats going on and that things are moving along.

The only reason we are doing a test build with a "private" group is to make sure the darn thing runs on a non development machine. The build they get is not fully functional in a lot of areas so its not the one that will be released publicly. Again, its a build missing some key animations and shoot/move functionality that are currently getting added. We just want to see if it starts and people can effectively change settings without it blowing up. Posted Image

No, we want to witness our PC's blowing up first-hand! I know, I know. Still, for someone checking back every day, a "We are releasing something, but not to you." Is like one of those fall on your knees while screaming "NOOOOOOOOoooooo!!!" with your arms reaching up to the heavens moment, lol. :-D

We are packaging up a test build to give to our early on Donator group to test out. They should have it in a day or so.There are still some missing animations that need to be added, but we wanted to do a test run to see how things go.

Ok, cool, I mean, I'm not included in this elite exclusive group though, but ok.

Edit: Perhaps that news should be in their secret forum that only they can see so it doesn't have to be rubbed in our faces, lol. :-D

We need a notification system. This checking back every day or every few hours thing cannot be healthy, lol. :-D

Just deleted some since I don't want a console vs. PC war in this forum...it's to stupid and we never agree anyway Posted Image

About Destiny...it looks pretty boring and I'am not gonna get it.

How? I have a PC for gaming, I also have a Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, and Nintendo DS. I started my gaming on a NES, then SNES, had the original Game Boy, and many other consoles. I think both have their place and even though I personally am primarily a PC gamer now, it doesn't mean I don't understand if someone simply prefers consoles. But if you look at the history of console games and PC games in terms of MMORPG's and shooters, you should see the point I was trying to make, whether you agree with it or not...

I think that might apply to younger and possibly more casual console gamers who honestly haven't had much—if any—contact with PC gaming. I can't see that profile being representative of the average console gamer, though, and I'd think the majority of gamers either play or have played both platforms at some point. Or at the very least know about either platforms enough to know what's available on them and how well they rank.

While naivety might explain some of the praise, I think it's a very small part. And that can't be the case of professional reviewers, so either they get paid to put out positive reviews (that would be my guess) or there's genuinely "something" about the game, even if we don't get it or simply don't like it.

Publications definitely bias their reviews based on promised advertising money. It's a known fact, so that definitely plays a role.

Just bare in mind these are console gamers... I don't want to sound like "PC master race" but without being offensive about it, it is simply true that when it comes to shooters and MMORPG's, PC gamers might be a little bit more picky when it comes to that because we have such a rich history of shooters and MMORPG's that are more than just the typical ones we see now-a-days on consoles. To them, this is all new stuff, but seriously, every "new" feature they tout about, there has been many PC games that have had those features since forever. But it might not be the same for console games... So they might find more enjoyment in that as well. PC gamers have experience with so many MMORPG's, and so many shooters, there's really nothing in that game that would "Wow" us or that we haven't already seen in 20 other games before it...
