Every time I think about playing it, I watch Yahtzee's review and that satisfies my curiosity enough to forgo actually playing the damn thing...

Incidentally, that review, the E3 review and the Ride to Hell: Retribution review are the funniest frakin' things I've seen in a while and are always a good pick-me-up when I'm feeling lousy!

In our ongoing series where we look back at the first batch of Kickstarter-era mega-stars and how they actually turned out compared to what was proposed, we continue with Part 2 of our look at Star Citizen, Chris Robert's return to his beloved space combat genre. In Part 1 we discussed the very beginning, the dream Robert's had for the game and the outpouring of support during it's funding campaign that surprised many in the industry. We also began to touch on the goals Robert's and his team were trying to accomplish, the promises made and, ultimately, the promises that weren't kept...

Early in the development, after the Kickstarter campaign and relaunch of the website, during the dog-days of Summer 2013, Robert's and company released the 'Hangar Module' for those that had backed the program, along with a new cash store where backers could buy items and ships. The response was immediate and surprising.

Roberts: "We didn't think it (the store) would be perceived the way it was. That was very unfortunate."

Roberts was quick to explain the reasoning for the store to the public in order to deflect some of the backlash. In a short response on the game's forums, Roberts wrote, 'Hey guys - long story short, we hear you. The VD store ended up coming across pretty much exactly the opposite way we wanted. We're working out a plan right now to make this right and I will have more for you as soon as possible. ', then added, 'I promise the goal was not to beg for extra money, and hopefully we will be able to prove that!'

Only the problem was that they were, indeed, out to get extra funding, though they couldn't dare admit it at the time.

Roberts: "Yeah, that was something we had to keep very quiet about, given the amount of money that had already been acquired through various means (upwards of 17-million-dollars). I made a private promise to my 'other' investors that I would not say anything about who they were or how much they had dedicated to the project."

This rather insignificant misstep would have just been a quickly forgotten gaffe during the development of any other game, normally. However, the stakes being as high as they were for Star Citizen and the fact that the gamers themselves were intricately and actively involved in the development process, meant that this error in judgement started forming doubts in the mind of some of the most loyal supporters. While only a small and disorganized minority at first, it would only take another faulty public relations decision to blow the door of dissent wide open...

No PC version, no money from me. Sorry rockstar.

Yeah I'd love to play this but I'm not falling for the trick of buying it for console only to have to buy it again for PC later if I want the best experience.

Normally I'd say the same thing, but this game just looks WAY too good to wait that frackin' long (if ever Rolleyes ) and when I say 'looks way too good', I mean gameplay, not graphics. It could be an 8-bit rendition as long as it's got the same gameplay and things to do...well, ok, not 8-bit, at least 16...

Besides, I need to do something with this damn $300 electronic doohickey (PS3) than just Netflix!

Assuming one wouldn't pay $125, is CKII worth the $5.80? I already got EUIII from a Gala bundle and the rest of the games I probably wouldn't even add to my Steam account.

What I really mean is, if I haven't even played EUIII yet (and won't for awhile), is CKII special enough to be thrown on top of the pile too?

Pardon my language but...FUCK YES!

You'll have to go to the 'Super Trench Attack' site to download the demo as Indie-whatever deleted it (apparently it was an older version with some problems)...just a heads up...

EDIT: I agree, nin, not only did he sound creepy, he looked creepy!

About the only real good ones on there are Crusader Kings 2 and Europa Universalis 3...but if you pay $125, then it's a whole different story...

At this point, I don't even really care if it has some jaggies and rough edges. I'm only hoping that the PS3 version is the better of the two and doesn't come with any...quirks, like what happened to Skyrim, and Lost Souls...this needs to be flawless (in execution)! I haven't bought a game for my PS3 in two years, so this one better be worth it!

From the little bit of digging I did earlier, it seems that some of the ending dialog was released and most, if not all, of the playlists were decrypted. They say that the cutscenes are in BNK (Bink) format, which is heavily used on PC games as well, so maybe that's another clue of a PC release? I don't know. Apparently, some in-mission dialogs have been decrypted but, along with the playlists, getting them to play right is another thing entirely. Apparently they're not in a format that media players can read well and many people have said they have a lot of trouble getting them to play through smoothly (mostly skips, stutters and reversing/restarting back to the beginning of a 'chapter' in the playlist).

While I was hoovering up every last bit of info before HALO4 was released, I'm not going to follow the same this time. I have yet to play HALO4 anyway, since I have a PS3...

Speaking of which, in the other thread yesterday, some of you were talking about buying PS3's and it just so happens I've been trying to sell mine for a few months now and only have crackheads and scammers to show for it. If any of you guys are looking for a deal on a PS3 (so I can, in turn, buy a 360 - yes, I'm crazy), then please check here and let me know! Please Fingerscrossed

Speculation is that the guy that was head of Win8 development (Strakovsky?...something like that...the one that got fired after it was released) is in the top running for the job. Who knows how that will turn out...we know how well Win8 was received...

I'm seriously buzzin' about GTA5...I dunno why though, I wasn't like this for GTA4. Maybe it's because this is suppose to be so much bigger and better than anything before...blah blah...maybe the story is more 'approachable' and maybe because it looks better and the UI and mechanics have been updated. I'll say one thing about *R, they sure put their ALL into their games...well, at least the GTA's, anyway...

I wish so bad it was on PC but I'm gonna wuss out and get the PS3 version. I just HAVE TO HAVE IT! I wasn't even this bad with HALO4 (mainly because it was such a pain in the ASS to get my PS3 sold before it came out, which I wasn't able to ultimately do because people want everything for NOTHING! Assholes... )

you cant even compare these games. your post makes no sense at all.

Good thing pac-man inst out because Skyrim will rape its round ass.

yeah that makes as much sense as what you posted. every game has its own quality and its own merit based on its own brand of fun.

This is a horrible post and you should feel bad.

Why can't we enjoy all three games? This mentality is why I loathe the CoD/Halo communities.

But seriously... why does it look EXACTLY like Sims 3?

Either we're seeing a very early alpha build and the final graphics haven't yet been put in place (and they're using the Sims3 engine as a placeholder, with some tweaks) or EA is going to have a serious problem getting everyone to switch over to this one when they've spent countless funds on the Sims3 expansions. I haven't really read the article yet, but maybe they'll be some backwards compatibility built in? There's got to be something besides just a modernized, more mature graphics engine and some re-tweaked features to give people a reason to switch...

Sims Online....you know its coming

They made that like six years ago, and it never did very well. They took it down like last year or so.


Wow lol, it must of bombed bigtime cause i never even heard of it...weird!

Some more info on 'Sims Online'... and word on a possible fan/community follow-up...

Fan Revival

In early 2012, it was announced by fans of the game that Niotso, the project groups name, has cracked several files in the game and have harvested source codes. They say the project is about 50% complete, and when done, The Sims Online will be playable via fan servers. (LAN).

For the record, it was launched in 2002 and shutdown in 2008. There's now (or were) several Sims games/projects on Facebook, like 'The Sims Social'...
