Star Citizen Hits Kickstarter Goal

The Kickstarter Campaign for Star Citizen has hit its $500,000 goal after just four days of fundraising for this upcoming space simulation from Wing Commander creator Chris Roberts. The Roberts Space Industries Website now shows the game has raised $1.35 million of its overall two million dollar goal (which apparently does not count the half-million from Kickstarter).

You guys don't read. You can host a private server. So that means that you can play the game in single player if you want to. They're also going to host a server for those who like it mmo-style. Freelancer did it, it's not magic. It's not pay to win or whatever bullshit term you want to use, it's do whatever you want. You can even mod it.

They do not have infinite resources, and MMO and SP gameplay are at odds with each other. In order to do both compromises need to be made on both.

Roberts can give us all he wants to read, but until I see something very close to final version I won't believe that he can give an excellent experience on both sides.

Few are those who believe that the end product will be perfect, but you have to support stuff if you want more of it. At the very least, it'll make the genre flourish and their next project after that will be even better with their acquired experience.
