"The context that’s missing here is that unlike many early access games, the game is already fully playable, and although it doesn’t have everything we want to put in it yet (which is what’s holding it back from a 1.0 release) I feel we could have released what we currently have AS 1.0, outside of early access."
"As Starbound stands, our sharing of our future plans aside, it could leave early access and be an entirely reasonable stand alone game."
Holy shit, I was gifted this game by a friend and I am mad as hell about this. Out of the goodness of their heart, somebody decided to gift their friend this game, believing that they could play it together in the future, a complete game with all sorts of content.
And what they got instead is 1/10th the content of Terraria.
Chucklefuck actually has the balls to call their bastardized piece of shit a complete game.
And what really gets me is the community don't even see this as a problem, its all one big massive hugbox. Hell many of them have actually said they would be fine if chucklefuck released the game as it is.
Early access is a fucking bullshit travesty, when the gaming industry already has enough problems as it is.
EA is interested in early access, so is Sony. It's pretty clear that early access is quickly becoming a huge deal in gaming and its going to be much worse than DLC or day 1 DLC ever could be.
And that's another problem, anytime anybody even tries to speak up and voice how they feel about the game they get shut down and banned, leaving only a massive hugbox in its wake.

And now we're just waiting on the new Terraria update since we know for a fact that won't be shit at least.
>it's a complete game
>but we're re-doing literally everything from the ships to the quests to the combat because they suck complete dick
Bunch of faggots. They give early access a bad name, and early access is a terrible idea by itself
My friends tried dragging me back into Starbound recently too. We didn't play very long. There's been fucking nothing for it in the last 6 months.
When's that Terraria update coming out?
No set date for 1.3 yet, but it's supposed to double the content. Again. And it's supposed to be Red's last update for it. Again again.
Really though, fuck early access. I paid 2.50 for Terraria and would gladly pay that again 10 times over for the content I've gotten out of it. Will probably get Terraria 2 full price if the quality stays consistent.

The community in the terraria forums went absolutely apeshit when they were told the game would no longer be receiving content updates.
And then when the console ports were announced, and it was said they'd have extra content, I think a few autists died of rage.
rather than ban those people, red just took the new shit from the console ports and stuck it into the main game along with a bunch of other stuff
Minecraft releasing a shitty block nobody wants every couple weeks for some reason has bred a huge amount of entitled douchebags for some reason
Gaming isn't dead, what the fuck are you smoking?
All that happened was a bunch of gibbering retards gave other gibbering retards stupid amounts of dosh with no actual promise of released content. These idiots deserve to get burned by the likes of Chucklefish because IT'S THE ONLY WAY THEY'LL LEARN.
If they don't learn, then all we can do is pray they accidentally drink bleach before they have a chance to reproduce.
I was hype as fuck for this game since I was interested in playing a game that involved traveling through space and exploring planets and stations and shit. Why oh why did it have to be Starbound that caught my attention first jesus fuck.

if a /v/irgin was developing a game would he be tempted to ban people on his forum?
understand that calling them niggers back for their criticism like one would normally do so on /v/ isn't really much different from outright shoving people away for dissent
what did that guy that made Risk of Rain do an /agdg/?
Don't worry, Edge of Space will be what Starbound was meant to be!
The developers are good people and all we have to do is wait for the thick and fast update goy---err guys.

Why even bother
How the fuck did you manage to get 50+ hours out of a game with almost no actual content and an absolute shit progression system? do you actually enjoy eating shit I am legitimately concerned for you anon.
Quit shitposting this every time this game is brought up.
The music is fez-tier uninspired and generic. It's so bad they give you instruments so you can put in your own midis to cover it up.
because some of their players honestly thing it has more content and better gameplay than terraria
No shit I'm replying to myself sherlock, I'm amazed you had the tiny bit of brain capacity to figure that out. I was furthering the point that I was making in the OP and also bumping the thread.
I manage to rack up 130+ hours by just fucking around with mods and not realizing that stupid launcher was still open after going to bed a couple of times.
Yes, I do feel great shame.
I would rather EA tell me that the new Battlefield game is a hardly working piece of shit upfront than them release it as a full game. Oh no, two shitty companies are going to use it, guess gaming is fucked.
Because Tiy has millions of dollars in his pocket, fucks molly until she ahegaos, and then fucks the dog with the massive boner he got over swindling autists.
He literally doesn't give a shit.
And again, so is Sony. Like it or not these are two very big names in gaming, and anybody paying any attention to the top sellers on steam will have seen that early access games have been high on that list for a VERY long time.
Like it or not early access is a massive success and where the money goes, the money-hungry devs go too. You can choose to put your fingers in your ears and ignore the problem or you can wake up and realise that this can seriously impact the gaming industry in a huge way and
There is probably nothing we can do about it.
Its just weird you know. How many updates for Terraria have come out since Starbound? 2? Hw can chuckle be so slow? They made a ton of money so they must have hired people to work on the game and pump out updates faster. It feels like they are just fucking around the offices and not working hard.
>Because Tiy has millions of dollars in his pocket, fucks molly until she ahegaos, and then fucks the dog with the massive boner he got over swindling autists.
Only two of these three things are true.
>Like it or not early access is a massive success and where the money goes
Ok, so the shitty devs will use Early Access while the good ones will continue releasing complete games or use it properly. Either way nobody's forcing me to buy the game in Early Access, I can just wait for the full release, and if it's shit I can just move on.
Early Access wouldn't work well on consoles, though, which is still where a lot of the big publishers are, outside of mobile games, which also have issues with Early Access.
It's primarily going to be a problem with PC-only releases. Everything else isn't going to change.
>As Starbound stands, our sharing of our future plans aside, it could leave early access and be an entirely reasonable stand alone game.
You know what? WHATEVER. Let him rest on that and let all the little kiddies sucking his dick defend him. Eventually even they will grow the fuck up and see just how rused they were. They aren't a "Chucklefish Defense Force", not in the long term at least. In the long term they're the ones who will wake the fuck up and tear Chucklefish the fuck down. They are a mob of torches and pitchforks just waiting to happen.
Let Tiy have his little cop out victory, He'll get his one day
Minecraft sold very well on consoles, not only that but exactly how would early access not work well on consoles? from what I have seen of the console community they would eat it up.
I want to say it's not really any better, but I'm constantly told it's "better" when I post my screenshots.
I absolutely HATE the progression through monster drops.
With all the recent scams i dont think Early Access will continue being successful for a long time unless steam adds some rules to prevent those scams. If it keeps going like this people will stop trusting the system.
>Because Tiy has millions of dollars in his pocket
Not really. Tiy is completely shit with money.
If I recall correctly he spent most of his money buying a large office in the middle of London, and paid to bring all the devs out there to work. I wouldn't be surprised if Chucklefish and Tiy are bankrupt by the end of next year.
The really sad thing about the whole Starbound disaster is that people will continue to buy into early access, and devs will continue to pull this cashgrab nonsense.
People will never learn, and there's always a new batch of impressionable teenagers who 'want to support something that has a lot of potential.' Just read any of the reviews of early access games that are positive and it's always the same shit.
Thing is steam did the exact opposite and added a rule that early access games won't necessarily ever end up being finished.
Not to mention there have indeed been very many recent scams but the community just keep eating it up, look at DayZ, Rust, Minecraft, Starbound, it just boggles the mind how the hell these games get so popular and every time a new early access game gets released it jumps to the top of the top sellers list and stays there for a LONG time.
I don't understand it at all, it is THE most consumer unfriendly thing to have happened for as long as I can remember.
which admittedly isn't very long, but still.
And yet the consumers eat it up like five-star restaurant food despite it being gutter trash with a fine coat of paint.
Post your face when Chucklefuck files for bankruptcy in 2015 and hasn't updated Starbound since then, and calls it 'released'.
Never EVER updated.
I blame youtube lets plays. They can play whatever piece of shit and as long as they scream enough kids ands teens like it and buy the games. Just look at Goat Simulator. Holy shit.
>How would they blow 10M+?
Do you know how much money it costs to rent an office in the middle of London, much less live near said office?
They're going to blow all their money on living expenses, not to mention their "high life" mentality will cause them to blow through the rest on who knows what (probably cars and shit).
Dude's going to go from a millionaire to horribly in debt. Just another example of someone becoming New Money without having any self-restraint. It's why Old Money people always laugh at New Money.
This is what happens. AAA or Indie, if consumers don't demand a certain level of effort or quality for their money, developers aren't going to put it in.
For the developer to actually come out and say this though is complete fucking garbage, though.
>mfw Terraria gets a space update and does space exploration better than Starbound ever did in their 20 years of development.
Here's to hoping Red makes it so you actually have to travel to the moon, and expands the space map portion so that it is as wide and deep as the main planet, and you can fly around "360 space-shooter style"(space has it's own creature set that you can dogfight with) looking for small asteroids, other types of space debris, and of course, the moon itself.
He probably won't make it all like that, but one can dream.
I disagree with most of the
faggotsin this thread.
Comparing Starbound to Terraria isn't accurate. Terraria has shit sprites with shit animations running on a shit engine with a shit GUI. Starbound in it's current state may have less content than Terraria, but the quality is not even on the same level. The high-level artwork, animations, audio, and lore of Starbound take far more time to implement than the shitty assets in Terraria. Starbound is still in development and I see it being updated into the future. At some point I hope it will have as much content as Terraria. If it ever makes it that far, Terraria will look like shit in comparison because of the difference in quality and effort.
I'll give you a 3/10 for trying, but you really failed to convince me you weren't intentionally trolling when you actually implied starbound had high-level artwork, animations, audio, and lore.
You sure look good with those dicks in your mouth. Starbound can be as pretty as it wants; it'll still be a polished turd.
I'll take game play and content over looks any day.
Don't get me wrong it's pretty shit but
>it hasn't updated
You are aware you can opt in for the unstable and nightly builds of the game right? I haven't tried them myself but they are there.
Unless you guys mean complete stable updates.
Or those unstable/nightly builds contain nothing new.
Or I'm being baited.
Oh man, not only is that not anything special whatsoever it isn't even IN the game.
I know you chucklefucks like to suck dick but at least try to suck dick about something that is actually IN the game.
I'm with you as far as quality goes. I like Starbound better than Terraria, even as is.
But Chucklefish is completely fucking retarded and I've lost all faith in them. If Starbound is released in a reasonably complete state, I will be utterly shocked. I was impressed by the beta release, but only because I thought they'd keep working. I don't think they will any more.
Y-yeah. Terraria is just as good as Starbound.
The assets in Starbound are a fuckload better and therefore take a fuckload longer to create. Be patient and stop being babbys. If you don't like Starbound now, shut the fuck up and wait until it actually releases.
I've been waiting for the actual release for quite some time.
I'm done with waiting as
1. it's not coming out
2. it won't be worth it when it comes out
3. the devs don't care, so why should I?
Terraria pisses me off. I want to fight all the bosses and get all the cool gear but the game forces me to enter hard mode to get all of that. I do not want to enter hard mode and have to deal with the corruption, crimson and hollow spreading. I just want to chill and do stuff on my own time without that constant worry and pressure of losing the entire world.
>tfw I spent fifteen us dollars on this piece of shit
I'm thinking of getting Terreria for my Vita but I'm not a creative type of person though. Would I still enjoy it just for the dungeon aspects? Is building shit and being creative essential in this game?
Yeah, I'm more than sure you'd enjoy it since I don't really build shit besides the small necessary houses for NPC's and I'm not even creative when I build those, just a wooden tower basically. Most of my time is spent exploring and gathering shit, bringing it back to store/craft and then just explore some more. shitloads of content pretty much.
Art is about the only thing Starbound has going, only most of the time. And that's its problem: the game has been overtaken by its artists like so many overambitious indie projects. They don't have enough people actually working on the meat and bones of the game or any competent leadership to tie it all together with a view to getting a 'finished' game out in a reasonable time frame.
Every one talking shit about starbound are terraria shills
game has more content than terraria has now
Yeah, nice art, but it's a pile of shit.
I love Terraria's content, and the art is just servicable. The music reminds me of something that would be played at a furry convention
In the Edge of Space...
A far better game with Metroid-like style.
And combat far better than Starbound
And -already has- more content.
>The assets in Starbound are a fuckload better and therefore take a fuckload longer to create
They're not all that great, and they're slower than they should be.
>Starbound was formally announced by Tiyuri in February 2012
>Starbound entered beta testing on December 4, 2013
>versus fighting game in the Touhou Project game series, announced on 5 October 2012...The final version of the game was released on 26 May 2013

In the amount of time Chucklefuck faffed about, ZUN made three games that look and sound better. They're more fun and have better replayability too.
And (aside from HM) he made it alone in his spare time as a hobby. There is a team working on Starbound and they have the money to hire more programmers if need be.
There's no excuse for Starbound to take this long to produce absolutely nothing.
I got 300 through the launcher and that I tried to make a mod for the game.
I realized it was shit when I worked on it but it was so easy I did it anyway.
How can I give you the source besides linking you to the lastest updates?
It has been updated recently/been updated since the Early Access release.
It was SHIT for a while but they are working a LOT on it...
If you like playing with guns in Terraria this game is the shit, it has no melee weapons, only futuristic guns.
Trust me m8 i have 200 hours of Starbound(games like this tickle my autism) and Edge of Space feels way more "alive" after you get into it.
I suppose this travesty isn't ending well at all. I played 80 hours and had fun with some friends, so i got my money's worth, but it's kinda tragic to realize the game doesn't seem like it'll get even close to Terraria's overall awesomeness. At least we can wait for Terraria 2.
Mah nigga, but Hisoutensoku/SWR was better than HM, even though HM was not a bad game, it had a hell of a lot to live up to with Hisou as its previous fighter. It just goes to show you how ZUN, a single guy who actually gives a shit about his content and makes the games out of pure love, can easily make a better game than several people who have all the money/time in the world and simply don't give a fuck.
Wrong, shmups mainly, Games like hisou and HM are spinoffs.
Took me a while to get into, but once you get the art style its pretty cool, especialy the enemies and shit (IMO) its very Metroid-like
also, game play is actually FUN since it is focuse don COMBAT
"Combat" = "Shoot guns while jumping about trying not to contact mobs"
You are a dumbass nigger and I will tell you why in 2 simple points.
1. Console players mainly buy consoles because they want something that "just works" and requires pretty much no thought. Selling them a game that is buggy as shit and has little or no content is either going to piss them off immensely or not sell at all.
2. I hope they fucking do it because of the above and the fact that their games are usually shit and it does them no good to show us it is shit way ahead of time. All that money that goes to bribing gaming sites would be wasted if every guy on the block could tell his buddies the game is shit before it ever makes it to review sites.
Mind you, devs are focused on Metroid-like Combat style.
How do you implement this to a Terraria-like game?
Yea it will be pretty much jumping and shooting, as is with Terraria too if you use any gun. Or guess what, any 2d game.
I like how you had no actual reasoning and facts behind what you posted but you try to tell me I'm the dumbass when all you have is baseless conjecture at best.
Mind explaining to me why minecraft did so well on consoles despite being a heavily butchered version with less content in general?
Starbound has no updates.
Still tho, im not selling the game, but this one will actually come out.
Just because it has an update, doesn't mean it added anything interesting. Hell, the mobs were already part of the game.
Just want to say, with meaning, from the bottom of my heart. Fuck /v/. I brought this game because i saw 100 fucking
>"Why aren't you playing Starbound /v/?"
>"Not playing starbound shiggy diggy"
>"Rate my house /v/"
Fuck /v/. Don't get me wrong you recommended some god tier games like Dwarf Fortress and Bloodlines but fuck you for making my give money to greedy fucks who were just going for a cash grab.
Well i did it. Fuck you clusterfish you mother fuckers.
In the 20-ish hours I've played I have NOT felt any Metroid vibe.
Well... I did buy Dead State and i don't regret that. They keep in touch and they're going to release the game in a month or so and from what i can tell they actually put work into that shit.
I wish, I just had big hopes for Starbound and Always wanted a futuristic Terraria.
In fact I think the exploration in Starbound is amazing, thats why I played it so much, a mix of EoS and Starbound would make me go crazy...but we can never have nice things, ever.
Where the fuck is the Novakid? They've promised that we'd be getting that character. Good thing I haven't bought it yet, 'cause buying it under the premise that we'd be getting the character really soon and yet they haven't delivered would suck a lot.
Grand Theft Auto V was released as Early Access. It is still missing content promised before release and has since moved 32.5 million units. It will soon be released on PC, still in Early Access, and sell millions more.
And how long has it been? More than 7 months now since it entered beta right?
Shit man how fucking slow can they be? This is a recurring problem with early access games. Once they get the money, things slow down to a crawl.
Red of Terraria is a master programmer. he compressed all of the assets down into ~65mb while the Starbound team doesn't compress anything and all of the assets are PNG's, which is one of the reasons the game's size is so bloated (uncompressed audio is another reason).
Idiots who stare at a game going "shut up and take my money," preordering it just to play beta, beta doesn't get updated, hop on 4chan and be angry
lesson? play something else and stop throwing money at shit that doesn't exist.
Not just .pngs, but pre-scaled to larger than they need to be .pngs
all art assets in Starbound are prescaled up to like 400%, it's fucking ridiculous
to be fair, terraria is guilty of this too, but yeah red and his code genius
My friend bought 3 copies for me and another pal so we could play it with him.
I didn't wanna make him feel bad for buying such a lame game.
We had fun, but that's probably because us 3 have good chemistry.
Now it's just sitting in the "isn't fun/runs bad" category of my steam library.
>Where were you when morons were gullable and stupid
Fixed that for ya. Its your own god damned fault for trusting them and not causing enough of a fuss about the lack of patches.
I wish I was good at modding. I have so making fucking good ideas to expand Starbound even though the game is technically dead.
>tfw you liked the concept
>tfw you even ended up a
furry sex mod that was the top mod on nexus for quite a while
>tfw you cant even bring yourself to update it because how shit the game is and all the broken promises
It hurts man
Chucklefish even got caught reviewing games they publish.
It wasn't that hard to mod, I've never modded before and I was still able to do pic related.
Don't bother anymore though, it's not worth it.
I really like the concept of the game too, including the lore, the rivalry between some of the races and the responses you get from them.
If it was polished a whole lot more, and kept their fucking promises, it would have been a very enjoyable game. But that's not going to happen.
Starbound, the Cubeworld is working on it but at a very slow rate since it's what he does when he's not doing his main job.
Starbound is going nowhere while the developers manage to turn most of their community against them.
Early Access is an excellent way to destroy both your reputation and your career fast. If you jump in it while your game is an a very early stage you better have a plan with documentation ready or else thats it. You are done. Cant complete the game because of shit you didnt see coming or it turns out you are not talented enough and the fans will tear you apart limb by limb.
Added a buncha stands, but all I ended up doing with them is fucking with multiplayer servers.
I just set them to spawn boss monsters when they attacked and it worked even when the server didn't have the mod, fucking glorious.
>Hylotls still can't breathe underwater.
Meanwhile /v/ keeps sucking Chucklfish's cock supporting Risk of Rain.
Some things have to be sacrified, you cant touch anything with their name on it
captcha knows: ndonly pure
Cick postive tab and negative tab. There are waaaay more positive reviews. People who dislike the game are just very loud. The majority loves the game. Starbound its a good game.
>Some things have to be sacrified, you cant touch anything with their name on it
Halfway is going pretty badly, it's highest peak was 189 players and it's peak within the last day is 96.
That's for a game that's been out for three or so days.
I enjoyed Starbound.
In fact, I made a mod for it.
A sex mod. A futa sex mod, specifically. When I was fucking around with the lua I accidentally made the cum projectile glow as a light source. I never fixed it and now when I'm exploring dark caves I just jizz on the walls so I can see.
Remember to use your brain and do your research before spending your money on anything
>check out Terraria reviews
Fucking how? This is more than i have spent in every mmo i have played combined.
Holy shit, made me comment, 8/10 .
Creator of Terraria Redigit said :
>"When I made Terraria, I did it in four months, and I think I only paid, like, not very much – and that was just for the sound. So I'd like to be able to do something similar with Terraria 2. My personal preference is that I never be in a position where I need to get money to fund my projects."
while Starbound got millions of shekels now
>mfw the old ass character creator has more content than the early access game
I just wanted that fucking Zaku face but you just had to fuck up didn't you. How hard is it to put shit from your character creator that you put out months before release into the early access version of you game?
How the fucking dick?
Was the man raised on coding languages?
Their publishing is as scummy if not worse than their developing.
They don't fund the dev at all, they provide minimum marketing (mostly just a shiterbound.com blog post) and they push it past greenlight.
They also go after devs who don't know better, mostly small, new developers and kids.
One of the developers (Omni) is convinced /sbg/ is somehow orchestrating all those downvotes and he's got a bunch of fanboys so wound up that they want to spam upvotes on the "good" reviews.
>Starbound its a good game.
If you seriously believe this you are a moron.
It has very little actual content an-
You know what, no. Its not worth it anymore. I'm done, fuck you fucking faggots who somehow think this butchered, watered down, content-less game is somehow an actual good game. This is why devs can get away with making shovelware, because there are always faggots willing to defend it.
Fellas please, leaving the game open, leaving the character logged in a server set up by a friends, shit like that, he obviously was idle for most of the time
WHAT DID I FUCKING TELL YOU /v/
WHAT DID I *FUCKING* TELL YOU
THIS IS THE FUTURE YOU CHOSE WHEN YOU DECIDED TO VlRAL THIS SHIT HERE AND INFLATE THEIR EGOS TO TITANIC PROPORTIONS
YOU MADE YOUR BED, NOW LAY IN IT
They honestly believe there are more than 500 people on a /vg/ general?
I don't think you know how contractors are paid.
You pay them some upfront and then based off milestones. If the early access price is discounted, then you are technically doing what you would do in real life except cheaper.
And I told them to fuck off.
Yet the rest of you dogpiled on me, calling me a shitposter and a troll. We managed to quarantine the fanboys and marketers to /vg/ after several days of nonstop shilling.
Who's laughing now, faggots?
The devs since you faggots threw money at them before they even gave you anything, now they're rich and constantly ensnaring new indie developers, ensuring many more years of Chuckleshit's reign
The most damage control of the coders, Omni used to try and tripfag on /sbg/ with an unsecure fucking tripcode.
Also their PR whore, Molly, finds the stupid shit they do like fapfiction of her to be hilarious until she wants moral support from idiots and cries about it on twitter. She even maanged to make the hugbox reddit board turn on her when they realized they were being strung along.
Wouldn't be easy. I hardcoded the animations for my character model. BwC has a java script that generates animations for arbitrary character models, but that would be a huge hassle to rewrite for all the stuff I added. But I'm not doing anything productive tonight anyway, so fuck it dude, I'll take a crack at it.
devs are probably watching these treads, drinking tea and just chuckling.
Yes, he's an expert on 4chan and knows we're internet hate machine hackers, all of us.
Blue did offer codes on the /v/ IRC shit if people viraled on here.
Tiy also did some stupid shit during his time on Terraria.
Blue ended up moderating on the Starbound forums for some time before getting the kick from there too,
You know what the worst thing is?
It's happening again.
Furfags are peddling their Sonic fangame. The devs swarm the threads and "fans" feign hype for the game.
While I managed to convince them to fuck off to /vg/ where they rightfully belong, some desperate shills are still making threads on /v/.
My brother is the most casual, shit-eating-and-loving-it 'gamer' there is.
He bought into the hype so much he bought a 4-key deal thing. I got one and god knows what he did with the two extra.
Even he think the dev dropped the ball.
Though, I don't miss the game, I will fondly remember the early days of the 'release' as being the funniest shit I've ever experienced. The game had zero balance. NOTHING.
Hotfixes after hotfixes and it just kept on being more broken.
I mean, fucking daggers with infinite attack strength, defense stat that worked as a yay-or-nay instead of a modifier...
Awe inspiring. Pic related.
I don't even understand why they have a general for it when they could have a general for things like Postal or Snatcher.
Guess I can't really say anything as I never really go to /vg/.
as a general they're one of the most cohesive threads on /vg/.
Mostly because they have an absolute hate for the developers and how badly the game has been screwed.
At a time, /sbg/ was home to a lot of modders, some of which are still really popular even though Chucklefuck screwed one of them over and most of the other quit for various reasons.
>now they're rich and constantly ensnaring new indie developers
I love to be the one to be the bearer of good news, but Tiy is actually horrifically low on funds.
This is why they made the statement about how they could release it now and it would be a complete game.
He ended up spending all of his money trying to make his business look legitimate. He kept some money, which he spent on useless crap, but most of it was for fancy shit for Chucklefish to make them look like some big corporation. The publishing gig isn't making them any money either. If anything, it's cost them even more.
It's hilarious how bad of a state he is in right now. Just wait a few weeks and it will eventually spill out all over the internet.
>He ended up spending all of his money trying to make his business look legitimate.
Uh oh. I hope the preschool office was worth it, then.
That picture right there tells most of it, dude made a really good mod that made guns fun and viable, community voted his mod as one they'd want in the game, devs contacted him, the image is what went off.
All of that during a time where the PR wench shown was telling PC Gamer that they're modder-friendly.
Friendly reminder that Edge of Space has Star Wars Galaxies based crafting system.
>How the fuck did you manage to get 50+ hours out of a game with almost no actual content and an absolute shit progression system?
The loader counts for time, doesn't auto-exit on launching the game and usually breaks while keeping the process running in the background.
It massively inflates game time, which makes the lead dev happy.
Too bad for them, Starbound could have been one of those games with a huge dedicated community. I mean, shit, there is a bunch of fan art for the game, and people loved the races.
>not liking space terraria
>thinking gaming died because you are mad over quote
>being this big of a manchild
how many times do you think gaming dies OP? Until you get your LE FAITH IN HUMANITY RESTORED
Can't have a Starbound thread without this screen of the writer doing what they do best.
i think their best marketing strategy on /v/ right now is the "What went wrong" with a pic of terraria threads
which immediately spirals into talking about how shit starbound is
If that were true, ones like /sbg/ and /wfg/ wouldn't exist.
They're straight up trouble for the developers and the Starbound devs like to warn/ban people for the slightest issue.
No, thats going to be Terraria 2
Its going to have very similar concepts and mechanics as starbound, but be infinitely better in every way.
Hes going to smear his cock all over shitbound and chucklefuck
At least thats what I would do
But Chucklefish is hard at work! look at that office, you can tell they're total bros from how casual their office is!
Starbound is the best marketing strategy of all, at least it is for Terraria.
While Starbound's player figures are sinking fast, it's pushing Terraria straight up the top 100 sales even when the game's not on a sale right now.
Imagine a pair of grapes being squished between two sheets of glass.
See, what'd I tell you? Hard at work!
Once again, this is why Starbound isn't going anywhere as a game. Eventually, the modders who spend time coming up with and testing features that the devs don't, will get bored and the game will be ded.
Doesn't stop me from loving the art, but that's all it's trading on right now.
>no leather couches
Someone post their dog.
>$20 million dollars
>They get a fucking puppy
>Can't keep it anywhere but a cardboard box too big for the puppy to climb in to
>With an old blanket at the bottom
>Next to an electrical outlet
Starbound isn't that mod friendly to start with, a lot is hardcoded and the devs don't like to comment the code because it "wastes time".
To make it so their important developers can be in one room to be more productive!
One coder left because he couldn't move there, another stayed in America, only one moved, they recruited a lua scripter and did little else.
Disregard that, they bought a puppy that lives in the office.
I love how even /vg/, the board dedicated to circlejerking the worst games imaginable that aren't even allowed on /v/, has turned on Starbound. Its sole purpose in existing now is just to catalog every fuckup about this game and its developers there is.
I don't understand why anyone thinks the devs are going to bother with Starbound any longer. The game was clunky as hell. Nothing was remotely polished. But they made like eleventy billion dollars off early access. They're taking the money and running guys and there's nothing anyone can to do stop them.
It will eventually stop raining, your baby will stop crying and you will see him or her smiling again. After wedding you will be married to the woman you probably love, and your finger will eventually heal. But starbound will forever be shit.
Not a fair comparison, ZUN is a Shinto kami masquerading in mortal flesh. The pantheon of Izanami and Izanagi have seen the fall of their European peers and learned to adapt to the world of Man than assert dominance on the ebb and flow of nature's order. Still do they gather the worship and prayers of mortals, but in subtler, more esoteric ways; the begging for fine crops has turned to a desire for video game franchises and new chapters in virtual adventures. With each new release, ZUN is given offerings of coin, beer, and heartfelt praise. With each new game, his god hood reaffirmed,
You are in the presence of Divinty /v/, the new Way.
What exactly is the point of early access? Why not just make a fucking demo when it's about to be released? I mean, at least take pride in your work by trying to fix as many things as you can before releasing it
the point of early access is that you can make a half finished game, have people play to beta test and give feedback while you apparently work on finishing the game
Which you won't because people gave you so much fucking money that you don't need to do shit
Who the fuck gave them that much dosh?
But I didn't!
I thought starbound was more a /vg/ thing anyway.
>retards still think Terraria is better
Outside of bosses, Terraria doesn't have jack shit on Starbound, and it's unfinished.
>b-but muh semantics
Even if it's an unfinished mess, it's still better.
Terraria has bosses, and some gimmicky weapons and shit. That's it.
Starbound has better building, better worlds, a sense of adventure, and more replayability.
That and Terraria gives you an actual reason to go exploring underground.
Also mining isn't a pain in the ass.
On a side note it's much more optimized and compressed than Starbound.
P.S. the devs really care about it.
I don't see Starbound threads on /v/ unless it's about Chucklefish doing something retarded.
Meanwhile I never stop seeing legit Terraria threads of people wanting to play.
Enjoying your predictable world gen with little variety beyond random block and biome placement?
I'll stick with my based random villages and a hell of a lot more variety in enemies
outside of bosses, which I already admit Terraria does better with, as well as worlds.
Because the general consensus on /v/ at the moment is that Starbound is shit. We know that if we made a thread, it would be bombarded by retards and it would be impossible to get anything done.
Man, I'd kill to play terraria with a couple other virgins right about now assuming they wouldn't come in with end game items and rush ahead everyone else.
>We know that if we made a thread, it would be bombarded by retards and it would be impossible to get anything done.
Sure buddy. Explain why /vg/ doesn't even like it then, without resorting to "t-they're trolls!"
I don't know or give a single fuck what /vg/ likes, that place is a containment board for a containment board.
And you know damn well that if I made a Starbound thread right now, or later tonight, every post would boil down to "STOP LIKING WHAT I DONT LIKE" combined with shill flinging and shitposting.
Why the fuck would I come in here knowing people would respond negatively if I wanted a hugbox? Are you retarded?
>Starbound has better building
I haven't felt the urge to build a single thing. Ever.
What, the tentacle world? Yeah, I can tell why you'd like that.
>a sense of adventure
I'd rather replay Dino Horde. FUCKING DINO HORDE.
>I don't know or give a single fuck what /vg/ likes, that place is a containment board for a containment board.
Your ignorance is no excuse. The way /vg/ works is that even if it's a shit game, subhumans will flee to /vg/ and circlejerk and hugbox until they die. Prime examples: /ksg/, /sc2g/, that abomination /biowareg/
EXCEPT that didn't happen in Starbound's case.
Now, if /vg/ of all places doesn't have a Starbound hugbox, what does that imply? WHAT THE FUCK DOES IT IMPLY?
The people talking shit about Starbound, have you even played the game? The game is not a mess, it has very little bugs in it, it's got more content in it already than Terraria. And with improved game-play and better bosses. The OP clearly hasn't played it since he thinks it doesn't have any content, even when the game was first released as early access it had more content than Terraria.
>what is /sbg/
You're either Tiy, a drone, or completely fucking retarded.
I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt and tell you to please finish your fucking game, Tiy, you double nigger concunt
So wait, you're not trying to turn us into a hugbox?
But you said we we're retarded for calling the game shit.
Not 4 posts ago you attempted to get us off of criticizing the game, that's what a hugbox is, now you're just lying.
What the fuck, you faggot
I'm saying that Starbound is so shit that not even /vg/ will hugbox for it.
And don't run off to /vg/ now and scream THERE'S OEN!!!!!!!!1, that thread was made in response to the /v/ thread.
starbound could have came out as a retail game if
they actually flushed out what you do in the worlds and made anything below 2 feet from the surface a challenge. Then again, last time I played the game none of this stuff was implemented yet. Its not that it cant be good but right now it is so hollow and transparent that its hard anyone can stick up for it as is.
Minecraft does not have a sense of adventure because of how bland and empty it is.
Starbound does because of a myriad of biomes and planets
especially with that one mod that adds a ton, races, towns, and the ability to travel the stars in a ship, with a buddy along for the ride.
It does MUCH better co-op because of that. Especially if you're hanging with a friend on voip while stoned.
>I haven't felt the urge to build a single thing. Ever.
Why? You can build some good shit. Also, I was talking world building / generation, but that works too.
>What, the tentacle world? Yeah, I can tell why you'd like that.
More like a huge variety of planetary biomes. It has, what, 20+ as opposed to Terraria's 10?
"Duh, I have no rebuttal."
>I'd rather replay Dino Horde. FUCKING DINO HORDE.
Good for you.
Again, I don't care. /vg/ is not an indication of quality, nor is it an indication of a lack of quality. Does it have a Power Stone general? No? Doesn't mean shit.
I came in here saying Starbound is good, likely better than Terraria.
If I wanted a hugbox, I would come in here and say Terraria is amazing and I want to suck its dick.
It's the other way around. You people are the ones in the hatejerk about Starbound, and being pissy someone is ruining your party. This thread is a hatebox, which is just as fucking stupid as a hugbox.
Go back to school.
>I came in here saying Starbound is good, likely better than Terraria.
Whoops, post invalidated!
You mean how like it has the same amount of stuff to do on planets as Terraria and about the same challenge rating as terraria, except that there is more crafting and character building than in Terraria. So it has pretty much the same shit as terraria, but more, it's some how not fleshed out?
Well in that case we must concentrate our anger on Chucklefuck.
IT'S NOT DOING ANYTHING FUCK
>he called me out on my obvious retardation, time to deflect!
I'm not the one defending Starbound, kid.
You have to have some sort of mental disability to like Starbound.
>post your opinions
>your opinions get shot down like a fat guy at an dance audition
>"WHAT THE SHIT, HATEBOX, YOU GUYS ARE MEAN!"
Get with the fucking program, you can like whatever you want, but prepare to get your shit kicked in if you think anything is void of criticism.
And now we're fully into logical fallacy, abandoning the argument entirely in an attempt to bandage your wounded pride.
Suck it up, faggot.
Are you completely devoid of the ability to comprehend a fucking discussion?
You're just as retarded as the other guy I quoted, just a lot more hypocritical.
The things you need to make are so simple and straight forward.
The monsters may seem challenging but the second you aren't fucking around on the surface there is no challenge, unless you consider falling into lava or avoiding random underground cold areas a challenge.
There is no point to playing co-op.
There's no point on 'living' or 'moving' into a world because you don't spend alot of time there.
It really lacks the sustainable of what made the core gameplay of Terraria fun and memorable. There really feels like there is no adventure to be had in starbound. Its empty, hollow, soulless, etc.
Exploring worlds is boring.
Is literally no longer about Starbound. All they do is talk about how mad they are and "muh shekels". It's hands down one of the whiniest generals there is. Whatever semblance of discussion there used to be is long gone. Hell half the time all they do is screenshot posts on reddit and forums and make fun of them. So if you're into a middle school cafeteria environment, you'll fit right in.
The actual game isn't even out yet, what are we going to discuss?
All there is to discuss is how much of a cluster fuck their company is.
Not that I'm defending them but if you actually read the entire post he specifically says the game isn't done nor is he calling it finished.
>1.0 used to be the version at which the game was released and sold. Finished was the point at which a game went on sale.
>By this old definition Starbound is technically finished.
>However we’ve obviously decided
>not to label the game 1.0 or finished.
You mean just like in Terraria? It has the EXACT core gameplay elements as Terraria, if you think Terraria is better for its core gameplay then you either are retarded or you just haven't actually played Starbound.
You're crying about logical fallacies when you started namecalling right away?
one thing i have with the game is they havent added in sounds for battle and shit and getting hurt. also why the fuck are enemies so fucking small? they also need to change research, cause grinding mobs to progress is shit. regardless its pretty fun
I bought it. It was $15. I had a blast even though it was unfinished. Yeah they're taking too goddamn long but I got about 75 hours out of it. Which longer than most actual finished games I play. I could sit here and sperg out about it and whine and complain like the dumbasses on /sbg/ or just go play something else and come back when it's finished. Seriously go on /sbg/, it's basically 15 or so spiteful man children who don't know how to let go of a grudge. It's sad.
>You mean how like it has the same amount of stuff to do on planets as Terraria and about the same challenge rating as terraria, except that there is more crafting and character building than in Terraria. So it has pretty much the same shit as terraria, but more, it's some how not fleshed out?
Tell me, how is character building is better? It doesn't even have half as many equipment options or effective mobility as Terraria does.
They have the same amount of adventure. Oh wait, no they don't Starbound actually has more adventuring content. You can run into whole villages of people that are hostile, you can go into dungeons that are hostile, fly to new planets explore new worlds and villages and dungeons. Terraria has some dungeons and some monsters, but you're stuck on that one world. Once those dungeons are explored there is nothing left to do. It's clear that you've never actually played Starbound if you don't think it has less content than Terraria.
>sci fi themed game
>still use fucking pickaxes,swords and drills
>no actual interesting sci-fi themed items other than the block mover thing (which sucks and can't be upgraded)
>no idle animations for anything
>blows everyone the fuck out
>they begin shitposting
Sounds about right.
Oh, we're not going to discuss anything. There's nothing left to discuss because you people can't hold an argument to save your fucking lives. You're all just ducking behind bullshit and deflection.
Sure am. I started with pointing out that Starbound is damn good, and people responded with the same repeated drivel they parrot every damn day, each one rooted in misguided anger and focusing on semantics and straight up lies.
At this point, all I'm doing is rubbing your ineptitude right in your proverbial faces and laughing about it.
As a final nail in the coffin, let's take a look at their respective webpages:
Starbound: daily updates about what they're doing, communication, content
Terraria: IGN, trailer, "buy our game!"
And before you say "b-but that's a released game!", their website used to do nothing but maybe monthly updates, and pictures about pretty things people made.
No monsters 2 blocks under the surface. No reason to co-op.
The same copy pasted areas over and over on multiple worlds. Usually you find about 2 structures worth a shit on the surface running around the entire planet till you move on to the next. Starbound's 'hook' to make itself different then Terraria is to not be about breaking blocks but rather ravenging areas of the game and collecting items. It never feels dangerous, theres no reason to play with another player (which is part of what made Terraria fun for me).
Can everybody just stop responding to these faggots? its clear that they are either
A. False flagging in an attempt to get you riled up
B. Buyers remorse as fuck
C. From chucklefucks forum, part of the dick-sucking hugbox.
either way, the only thing they are doing is getting you riled up. We all know that terraria has more content, better content, and actual updates that matter. In a contest between the two games there is literally no contest, terraria wins hands-down. we know this already as a fact. So don't let them rile you up.
I just saw that on the site.
I am now aware that /v/ is raging about nothing. He never said the game was done or even anywhere near it just that upon release of update 1.0 the game would be considered done which is not what he believes.
You guys are actually retarded.
>Hating on product without giving reasons

This thread in a nutshell.
Run to the left. You'll find empty biomes and eventually either an ocean and the end of the map, or a single themed dungeon. This is the same for every map.
Want a new map? Quit, generate, magically be in a new one with the same shit with maybe a different underground biome.
Run to the left. You might find a myriad of ruins, civilizations, camps, more choices in biomes and enemies, and you'll eventually wind up at your starting point because it's a planet.
Want a new map? Teleport to your starship, find a system, find a planet, and go there.
Don't even bother. They already tried, and they already got BTFO because none of you have an argument behind "but everyone knows terraria is better!"
Well, at least this way the thread will die faster and less people will know about the game's existence.
There are people playing starbound. You can't come up with anything can you? Because you know its not true. Did you know acting like a dumb fuck doesn't make you look cool, it makes you look like what you're pretending to be. So if you want to act like someone who can't argue logically, then you will look like someone who can't argue logically because you ARE someone who can't argue logically.
>run to the left, encountering identical enemies with various shitty colors that all function identically, through environments that function identically
>maybe encounter the same bland dungeon I've encountered several previous times but this time it's on a new planet
>grind the planet down for fuel, and repeat across the entirely bland and repetitive universe
I don't care what you have to say about Terraria; I didn't like it either. But those "myriad" of ruins, civilizations, camps, etc. all sure do function the same. Shit, they're been a far smaller assortment than we were promised, both functionally and aesthetically.
Daily updates and friendly devs? How is that not showing signs of enjoying their jobs?
Starbound has a progression system >>254775391
DAILY updates in Starbound
good job you guys officially have never even played starbound. Either you're all just trolls or you're all 12 year olds who don't want to try a new game because its the same genre of a game you already own.
More like delusions, they didn't promise being able to populate worlds, this kind of shit, and even with those lowered expectations they still managed to disappoint.
I've been playing some recommendations of early access games like State of Decay and Betrayer, when it wasn't finished, and I guess I was lucky because those two were head and shoulders above Starbound.
