Greetings Citizens and Civilians, you’re tuned to episode 139, of Guard Frequency — the best damn space sim podcast ever! This episode was recorded on Friday 30th September 2016 and released for streaming and download on Tuesday, October 4th 2016 at GuardFrequency.com
Well in this week’s Squawk Box, we have giant robots. That should be all we need for that hook. On the Flight Deck we see what news has landed from your favourite space-sims as we cover:
- Further Kotaku dissections of Star Citizen and new things coming out of the UK studio
- Results of the Ask Me Anything video Dual Universe put out
- And a brief look at another Early Access survival/crafting/exploring space Sim: Empyrion
We then debate helping vs trolling as it applies to exploits, and finally we tune into the Feedback Loop and let you join in on the conversation.
Speaking of joining in on the conversation, a few people were annoyed that some of our hosts didn’t watch the full Gamescom video last time CIG did a livestream, and the research badgers don’t have the field of vision to watch online videos. So this time around, we’re crowd-sourcing the work…to all of you. That’s right, episode 141 of Guard Frequency will be a call-in show, so if you’d rather speak than write your feedback, mark your calendars for 10:00pm Central, 4:00am GMT on Friday, October 14th.
This Week’s Community Question
- Should imbalanced game mechanics be exploited to quickly force developers to take action? Or do the developers respond to written reports just as quickly, and exploiting the mechanics is nothing more than griefing? Perhaps you have a different perspective you think we missed?
