The top 14 beta questions from Starhawk... answered!

A few weeks ago, we ran a thread to collect your questions about how the Starhawk beta programs were being used to develop the final game, and talk about specific issues you were curious about. They included items like turret spam, flight ceilings, building limits, and more. We collected your Top 14 questions and passed them along to Dylan Jobe, the president of LightBox Interactive, to get you answers straight from the source.

This is the full length video (Dylan Jobe, Lightbox Interactive, PS3, Starhawk)

MUST WATCH FOR STARHAWK FAN!
This was a Killer video from Jobe! He answered a lot of good questions. And you really get a sense of the dedication LBI\Jobe has for STARHAWK.

He shows new maps, ALOT of gameplay changes and reasons "Why" they tune the way they do. Great Video!

Jobe is awesome, it's weird that he doesn't get that "star-status", like jaffe or blezinski, surely he just doesn't want it.
ShoryukenII  +   1059d ago
I agree. This is was a great video. While I am disappointed about the 32 build cap staying where it is, at least we know why. LBI is a great dev team and I think that Jobe is much better than that fat mouth called Jaffe.

You dont see this from many developers until after the game has released , if at all!

Halo has always been good at community feedback and involvement and im glad that starhawk is soo keen to work with fans to try and find the right balance before the game releases! Verygood video, great guy!

I all ready know i pwn in the skies in Starhawk. I suck at ground combat. Cant wait for release.
VonBraunschweigg  +   1060d ago
For me it's the other way around, we should join up. I blast anything in range of my little tank, including Hawks. A lot of Hawks:)
ThanatosDMC  +   1060d ago
I'm a bad teammate. I just look for kills and nothing else. I did the same in MAG but i did end up in all the best clans during the glory days of MAG.

This is a perfect example of what developers go through to change the game. People complain about this is to over powered or why they didn't add this, its not as simple as clicking a few buttons to add or remove features. They need to test out the problem, look at the statistics and see why the problem is occurring. its not as simple as it sounds

Dylan Jobe is awesome and so passionate about his games.
Ares90  +   1060d ago
I had to decide between this and Max Payne 3 for this May. I chose Max Payne 3 because I've been waiting for a Max Payne game way before Starhawk. But I'm sure I will be able to pick this up later.
