Miner Wars out+reviews on STEAM

Post by CDN_Merlin » Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:24 pm

So I looked at MW on Steam, it's 20$ but then I started reading the forum posts about it. Seems the majority of people think it's still in beta and it has to always be connected to the net. Some users have serious issues like BSOD etc. Think I'll wait some more before getting it to see if it gets better.
Beta tested:
Game Stock Car 2012, Diablo 3, Descent 3 1.5 Patch, C&C Generals, Independance War 2, Starfleet Command 2, Settlers IV,Tzar, Allegiance, Starfleet Command, MAX 2, Defiance
ASUS Z170-P, Core I7-6700K, Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler, Gigabyte GF GTX970 OC 4GB GDDR5,Crucial 16GB 2133MHz DDR4, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB 2.5" SATA3 SSD, WD Black 1 TB, ASUS DVD Burner, ASUS 27" Monitor, Fractal Design R5 Mid-Tower Case, Thermaltake ToughPower Gold 750 Watt, Win 10 64Bit

I've not blue screened yet, but there are definitely a lot of technical issues. It also takes monster hardware. I have a Q9300 processor and a 5870 HD and I can't play on anything but Very Low or else FPS drops will literally kill me.

As for it being beta-like, it really feels that way to me. Unfinished is the best way to describe it. It's got the 6DoF vibe, but there are a lot of bugs. For instance, I lost the driller on a new ship I got, and I'm stuck as I can't load a mission right now.

I found out by chance that you don't have to always be connected, but you at least have to be connected when you start playing, at least single player. My Internet went out and my wife couldn't keep going on WoW, but I kept playing along in MW just fine. They claim no DRM, but come on... they used Steam. That said, they do acknowledge it's an issue that you can't start it without being connected, but no idea if they're going to do anything about it any time soon.

It's a shame really. Let's wait to see what they do to fix it.
