But.. but.. if you turn your head and the view rotates correspondingly, you have to keep your eyes focused center screen to get the benefit. Please let me know if I'm thinking about this wrong. For example you turn your head to the left, but have to now cut your eyes back to the right so they are focused center screen, where the view has now rotated to the left. This seems completely unnecessary. Now, if you have a screen attached to your head (like a VR headset or w/e) then this makes perfect sense.

edit: the slaved weapons that track eye movement I can see being useful.

Yeah this video from their website demonstrates EXACTLY what I was asking about:

https://youtu.be/_AO0F5sLdVM?t=61

The guy turns his head left, which rotates the view, and he has to CUT HIS EYES TO THE RIGHT TO SEE THE SCREEN. I'm not trying to speak for you, but this would very quickly annoy the piss out of me. This tech is great, but I won't use it unless it's in conjunction with a VR headset.

I'll stay on the ground and prosecute the war in the trenches ala Nam style hail O bullets.

....soturn the sensitivity up on the tracker so you only have to turn your head a little bit, unlike this owl headed tard.

I am not a good judge of this game, it's seemed like a money pit from the beginning for me.

I did want to mention that regarding Fallout 4 - not a good comparison - Bethesda did Skyrim after Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 was back burnered. So you would have to say they did Skyrim AND Fallout 4 in that time frame. If you use that as the yardstick SC is behind.

I think this game has been fun to a lot of people who have invested in it and felt its pulse along the way. Like someone said you never get to go along for the development ride and be involved as SC has involved it's fan base. For those that fall off the coat tails or, like me, never got in the groove with SC it seems like a lot of hype for a game in development that may never get finished. I told someone this was the game, SC is a development game and the fans are enjoying the ride for the most part.

SC is a journey not a destination, yet.

I WHOLEHEARTEDLY AGREE, finally someone said it, Hare you are a great judge of games...I have been waiting in the shadows and every year I've watched this game I have felt as though this game is money grabbing and the level of completion never seems to be met, I'm not waitin g for crap anymore, we need to find a game that unites us and a game we CAN play....I look to Warmaster Donk.

Call it Donk!

Look SC MIGHT play out, MIGHT. However I am tired of holding my breath. Where is the play? Where is the massive works? If I wanted what they have thus far I'd play EvE, (which is more complete than SC), however we are waiting for promises that may never be realistic. I opt to find a real game, development or otherwise that can deliver. SC has potential, people have heavily invested in the project, yes. However this is insanity to expect something with absolutely no guarantee. Where is the pay off? How long are you willing to wait? Sure no game is created in a vacuum, however that is an excuse. I would think at this point something should be available, not a patched up module. Cling to the hope if you must but it's becomming apparent this is hurting, and only seeking funding.
