Seems to be a bit of projecting and thread derailment, or at least diversion. Kxmode's post mentioned Chris Roberts certaintly, but no mention was made of Star Citizen, unless I've been asleep and it's been in developement under his capable watch for 7 years?

Mebbe I gotta learn that new english they teach in schools these days. I'd read that paragraph of his and instantly a image of Wing Commander the movie leapt to mind, in fact reminding me that Roberts had been busy doing the Hollyweird thing before SC became his new Shiny.

'Coarse I'm closer to 100yrs old these days than not, so it could be massive neuronal misfirings going off in my brain pan.

God I luv this place. Group hug! (Hey! Who's groping?)


~Finis~

Kxmode's problem with Chris Roberts is down to Star Citizen, I would bet $930 on that. I think Kxmode mentioned the 7 year absence as one reason why he feels SC is in trouble, not because it is specifically a problem its self.

He said that The Witness is number 1 on a popular torrent site so if that's the case then plenty of people are finding it and are prepared to risk malware. He doesn't repeat the fallacy that every pirate download equals a lost sale, in fact he refers to 1 in 10 in terms that look to me like he doesn't consider that to be remotely realistic. He said nothing bitchy, he didn't moan, he's not ignorant and I don't think he acts entitled beyond the perfectly reasonable notion that getting paid for work is a good idea.

Why is it that whenever any developer says anything, there is always someone ready to bitch and moan about them bitching and moaning? Do you ever wonder why so few developers openly talk to gamers?

I find it interesting that you have the exact opposite perspective. theyarecoming doesn't want ANYTHING negative spoken about Star Citizen because he's financially backing it and fears project collapse. You don't want to hear ANYTHING about it period because you hate it. "You're damned if you do, and you're damned if you don't" about sums it up. The long and short is this. Where and when I feel it is appropriate I will continue to use Star Citizen and Chris Roberts for the topic at hand. You're more than welcome to skip my comments if the mere mention of Star Citizen makes you throw up a little.

I don't hate it, you're projecting. I'm just tired of the endless topics, baiting like in this thread and arguments surrounding it. There's really no need or purpose to dragging it into other threads, especially when there are active ones in the side bar already. But since you're determined no problem, I will start running it up the flag pole in the future if I see it instead. Same goes for him.

It's not that the comparison of trust is unreasonable, in my opinion, it's just that Star Citizen is one of several topics which causes more than enough ill feelings in threads that relate to it that I don't want to see it elsewhere and that I personally avoid bringing up outside of directly related threads precisely because it derails them.

I want to talk about games, not soap operas.

When your a kick starter dev, when is ANY bar tab considered acceptable?

Whenever the cost of the tab is less than the value of the meeting, which is the same as it is supposed to be in any other business. Taking a client out for a meal is meant to be an investment in that contact, not a gift.

If it's true that these guys paid for strippers from funds for a $5000 game then it's not so acceptable this case.

It's a little hard to take that Eurogamer interview seriously when it says he remained true to his word about not doing interviews. It's a very soft article in general, John Walker got more out of that infamous pathological liar question than Wesley Yin-Poole did in this whole interview.

Although to be fair to Molyneux, Walker did call him a liar for all intents and purposes.

Bluesnews comments remain toxic and synnical. Mr. Smart is still getting paid by CIG to post negative press and you non-backing, self entitled suckers are falling for it. This is the best marketing tactic I've seen in years.

You stated here that Derek Smart's blog and Twitter account would close. That was 3 1/2 months ago, what happened?

You ended that post by saying "Think I'm lieing? I am not your internet mommy so dig up the information yourself." Ironically, I found this post by digging up information myself as to why you'd post such an apparently ridiculous statement as this and gee, now I do think you're "lieing".

And he's complaining about an obscure Chinese group cracking it and putting it up on a few less than reputable torrent sites? Sounds like a right tosser actually.

Why wouldn't he? What's the cut-off point for being allowed to be unhappy at people grabbing your work for free? What does the notoriety or nationality of the cracking group matter?

Even if there was such a cut-off point (spoiler: there isn't), being $1,000,000 in the hole surely isn't it.

More importantly, is your name supposed to be read backwards? I always do, but I'm not sure I'm supposed to.

It only takes about 10-15 minutes to get from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. The map scale seems largely out of whack considering California and Nevada are the 3rd and 7th largest states by area. Can you imagine a trip to Rhode Island? If you're not careful, you'll sneeze and blow right through the entire damn state.

I hear what you're saying, but in RL that's a 4+ hour drive. You really want to spend you're entire night driving one route? 15M seems pretty reasonable.

ETS2's map and clock is scaled 15:1 so it sounds like ATS is about the same. That worked well for Europe, but California and Nevada combined are little larger than France. Even with the free Arizona addon, this is going to be a small map.

I guess I know why it's relatively cheap now.

It's not Stephen's job - nor his desire - to determine what news is fit to link on his site.

That is exactly his job, to decide what news is worth aggregating and which article(s) best portray the story.

He can't verify each story - although "Sky" was maybe a hint - which maybe what happened here, although I can't (be arsed) either so I don't know if random Internet poster is any more accurate.

No it's not. You think he reads every single thing in its entirety that he links here? He'd never get anything done if that were the case. It's Blue's News, not Blues Op Ed. Learn the difference.

He doesn't link to every news article on every site, he decides which to link to. He presumably doesn't read them all but it is still his job to determine what he links to.

Opinion editorials, or opponent editorials if you want to be old fashioned, have nothing to do with it.

These aren't the 'droids you're looking for.

You can go about your business. Move along.

I glanced back at this and was wondering ... why did I think that said Blow just a minute ago?

Wait, in response to criticism he has pulled his game from sale, allowed all refunds, and will release a fixed version of the game for free? That's stupidly generous.

I don't care about Five Nights much and I've felt that the releases were quick to cash in on a fad but that doesn't mean rushed or unfinished as they weren't big games with big prices.

Try visiting France and issuing the same statement.

I gather the French try to protect their language with the official Dictionnaire de l'Académie but can't, because that's not how language works. As stupid as those new additions to the Oxford English dictionary often look, it's not for them - or me - to decide what words mean.

you mean how they actually fucking redefined "literally" to mean "figuratively"?

that some pure evidence for the decline of civilization right there

Decline of civilisation, yes, rather than the OED's fault. It seems stupid to me too but when someone says "ugh, I'm literally dying here" I know that they mean figuratively and when much of the population understands that usage, whether they like it or not, then that's the language. It's still a figuratively brainless thing to say IMHO.

This sucks, but a few decades ago saying "this sucks" wouldn't make sense, or would be considered obscene.

£30 here. $55 is probably Canadian. That's pricey but it does look interesting so I'll keep my eye on it.

It's worth checking back on a well-received early access game like this after a couple of months and see if the recent reviews are people complaining about it not developing.
