    Wonderful show everyone.

    Say it with me “orbital elevators”. Although the sled/launch ramp idea is good as well.

    As to last weeks feedback, i think you guys should read that one part more carefully, formatting is not one of my forte’s. It should be 3 lines with specific words at the start of each line, meant to be noticed/read by one person in particular.

    I will use whatever launcher gives me the game.

    Enjoyed the podcast, thank you!

    As for the launchers: I don’t like having a plethora of different launchers, each one requiring me to sign up and register and hopefully not forgetting to unsubscribe from their newsletter.
    There’s a wonderful open source (MIT license) tool for that: Playnite (https://playnite.link/) It bundles a couple of the most popular launchers like Steam, Origin, GOG, Battle.net and Uplay under one hood as well as directly installed games. Using it I see all my games in one place and miss the advertisment stuff.

    About the ships in pipeline: not sure what to think of it. On one hand I’m happy with every new ship that’s released. On the other hand I sometimes think what takes them so long? By now CIG should now the challenges bringing ships from concept to flyable, so why don’t we see a new ship every week? Which studios are building ships? Winslow, Austin and L.A., right? Ships like the X1, Vulture, Vulcan oder 100i, the MPUV S&R, 300 rework, Hull A, B are all designs by in-game manufacturers with what seems to me a fleshed out style guide. So what happens? One week in each department to get the design, the tech, textures, functions and testing and… ) and giving it to the next department doesn’t sound to complicated for these little ones. They have a lot of staff dedicated to build ships. That’s what I think of a pipeline (and yes, they still have bigger ships which surely take a bit more time to do.)
    Perhaps I’d just like to know what each department does or accomplishes in one week: what do the start monday morning with and what does it look like on friday afternoon.

    Keep up the good work on your show!

    Feature content for Non-Patreons – Tony and Brian present “Cat Fights” $9.99 for the first minute $2.99 for each additional minute. Wait, you’re using real cats?

    If the game isn’t exclusive by platform, then they’ll make it exclusive by launcher. It’s only good for the first few months after game release and I don’t have the “need it on release” mentality to make exclusivity work.

    I’m happy to wait for a year of bug fixes and price drops before I buy. I have EA’s Origin installed for their occasional “On the House” freebies. I have Steam installed for the wishlist sale notifications. Yes, I’m a cheap bastard.

    Nice recap this week. Tony, I hope Crytek’s lawyers watch the show so they know what to do next. Since they started, I think they’ve needed help. Do you think Crytek found their legal staff on Craigslist or Capitol Hill D.C.? Either place, it just ain’t getting done.
