Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

More Visual Previews of Star Citizen

In the previous post about Star Citizen, we were given a short glimpse of how a random group of players can interact with each other. In this video, the narrator gives us more previews of what can be seen inside these starships. He talks about why he values all of the work that the developers are putting in to create starship interiors for people to play with. He states that it contributes tremendously to immersion – the feeling of being there in space, living inside star ships, and I agree with him.

While Star Citizen is the game that I’m most interested in, there are a number of other sci-fi games out there that are worth mentioning.

Elite Dangerous – a sci-fi space combat simulator, trading simulator, and planetoid mining simulator. A recent update to the game has added a feature that lets you walk around as a human in the first person perspective. Very buggy at the moment, but the visuals are very very nice. The in-game universe is huge. It’s safe to say that exploration is a core aspect to gameplay. Costs $30 dollars.

Eve Online – a sci-fi space warfare simulator. It’s a sandbox game, meaning that there are no rules, you get to make your own rules. The goal of the game is to make money and to conquer vast regions of space. The entire playerbase is housed inside a single server, which makes this game exceptionally immersive. It has a large active community. You can shoot things, gather ores, build space ships, run courier missions, build a space empire…

Reputation is a core social aspect of this game, so the more eccentric your personality is, the more popular you will be inside the Eve Online community. This game is an odd phenomenon. You don’t get to walk around in the first person perspective, instead you are limited to playing as the space ship, whichever space ship it may be. Many people refer to this game as “Microsoft excel simulator” simply because of the way that you are required to click on lines of text in order to initiate combat, but when you are crammed into planetary orbit with 2000 other players, this quickly becomes a necessity rather than a hindrance. But the players love it. As previously mentioned, this is an odd phenomenon. The game costs $14.95 a month, or $38.85 for 3 months. Or you can play for free, but with limited access.

Cyberpunk 2077 – a Polish made sci-fi dystopian single player game. It is a story driven game and it is presented in the first person perspective. Because of the game’s unfinished state upon initial release, players sued CDProjektRed with class action lawsuits. I did a review of the story a couple of months ago here on my blog. The story is really good, and the visuals are fantastic. The characters are all very charming, and you fall in love with the story right from the start. A lot of the bugs have been fixed, but many of the game’s visual assets have been removed as a consequence. It’s worth playing just for the story. It’s about $60 to $70 dollars online.

Warframe – A first person shooter co-op game. Team based gameplay has a maximum of 4 players. It’s a lobby based game, meaning that you sign up for queues to play missions with 3 random players. Peer to peer, meaning that you connect to other people’s IP addresses whenever you play. The developers are all cringy, toxic, and they’re very hands-on. If you ever get caught in a vortex of inescapable drama, it’s usually because one of the developers had caused it. The carrot on a stick analogy is very relevant here as the only method of progression in this game is to chase after guns, more guns, and guns’ variants, and the guns’ variants’ new paint schemes. It’s free so it’s worth taking out for a spin, but for long term play, avoid at all costs.

Star Trek Online – A 3D space ship simulator. This game was made for Star Trek fans. If you love nostalgia then this game is for you. It’s simple and it runs great on older computers. Everything is free, but in order to get strong in this game you would need to buy space ships with real money. It’s possible to buy these ships without paying by credit card and simply by playing the game over the course of several months, but the executive producer at Cryptic Games, Andre Emerson, habitually preys on the gambling addiction inherent within the community. Gambling boxes, gambling boxes, and gambling boxes…and time limited premium bundles at scandalously high price points. Star Trek Online’s sister franchise ‘Neverwinter,’ is also plagued by scandalous fleecing, though you will never witness their respective communities putting two and two together to form a coherent revolt against Cryptic’s predatory practices. Also worth mentioning is that CBS controls the licensing of this game; this partially explains the ruthless milking of money laden space whales. The game is free to play however, and you don’t need to be exceptionally strong in order to enjoy the game. The gambling boxes and the premium bundles are specifically targeted at space whales, so if you’re not a gambling addict, you are totally safe.
