Star Citizen reddit is full of friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly, friendly people.

Zero dissent about the game is tolerated there. I mean, people have put in thousands of dollars. With that kind of money invested, they've made it literally impossible for themselves to admit they fucked up. They are in the deepest state of denial. If the game never releases anything other than a smattering of unfinished "modules" they will claim they got their money's worth and blah blah blah.

You could take a power drill to these people's gonads and they wouldn't crack.

I'm pretty much done with them. "My Adventure to get a refund" is the last thread I post on that subreddit. I want nothing to do with them and their zealotry. Any group of gamers willing to put others on their "kill on sight" list is emotionally unstable in my opinion.

Here's a little scene I would like to replay...

Me: Don't try to frighten me with your wordy ways, Star Citizen backer. Your sad devotion to that ancient religion has not helped you play the full game, or given you enough clairvoyance to figure out what the hell is going on with Star Citizen...
[Star Citizen Fanatics begin to make choking comments]
Star Citizen Fanatics: I find your lack of faith disturbing.
Cloud Imperium Games: Enough of this! Backer, release him!
Star Citizen Fanatics: As you wish.

New site layout wishes

Responsive! This site is a pain to read on my phone. Twitter's Bootstrap framework is an excellent way to convert existing sites into responsive sites.

I have to admit man..I didn't think you would get any of it, let alone all of it. I am not at that point where I want a refund, but I am only in for 35 bucks so I can't really say our situations compare. Good job getting your money. I want to see the game finished and I think it will "eventually", but this whole thing has been such a clusterfuck and anybody who wants a refund really should get one.

The vitriol coming from others is pretty high. I guess they're very angry that someone had the audacity to leave the Church of Star Citizen with all their money.

http://pastebin.com/mSM29KZs Here's the conclusion to my CIG refund request. Start at "UNEXPECTED REPLY FROM SANDI GARDINER (July 22, 2015)".

I'm now no longer a backer of Star Citizen. My entire US$930 was returned.

If you don't have a 3D printer you can buy the printed pieces, paint them and assemble yourself.

Pip-Boy 3000 - Top - Part 1 of 4 $162.48
Pip-Boy 3000 - Bottom - Part 2 of 4 $97.26
Pip-Boy 3000 - Cuff - Part 3 of 4 $103.92
Pip-Boy 3000 - Knob - Part 4 of 4 $7.92
Total cost: 371.58 US$

OR you could buy the preorder from Ebay. Cheapest price I've seen is $319.14.

"Devil May Cry" would be a great studio name for EA. Of course given time Devil May Cry Studios would be reduced to DMC. Unfortunate DMC would continue to RUN to the bank laughing all the way.

Sorry I was just looking for an excuse to talk about Run DMC... the best band in the world

I stopped handing Blizzard their monthly fee after the abomination that was garrisons was introduced

For all we know Garrisons could've turned out to be such a popular addition that it spawned a new IP for Blizzard. We shouldn't bash them for wanting to try new things even if they turn out to be failures. World of Warcraft could have been a failure. I remember thinking "A Warcraft MMO? Is Blizzard stupid."

Um. none. I don't have GPS enabled. I don't text. And I don't use apps that allow them to root around my phone and use my data and other personal information. You guys obviously don't care about your privacy but some of us do.

You'll love this then!

Misc note. Recently I've updated my Utima 7 interactive map. I spent a couple months changing the code from Google Maps to the amazing open source Leaflet platform. The new map has several key features like icon filtering, proper searching and a responsive design that works on mobile devices. I'm currently working on a Serpent Isle map. If you have Ultima 7 I hope this map helps you in your adventures.

Ahh, now we see why MS is giving away free copies of Windows 10, it's because you have zero privacy.

Microsoft’s new small print – how your personal data is (ab)used

Think I'll pass on that thanks.

How is this worse than what retail stores do with your purchases? Every time you swipe your card at Target or Starbucks that information is collected, stored, and aggregated with other personal information to create profiles to identify who you are, what you do, where you go, how you spend your money, etc. etc. Windows 10 is just a small piece of a much larger privacy issue. There are companies out there who then take all this data and sell it to politicians or business to help them figure how to market to you.

The outrage over a guy killing a lion versus Planned Parenthood killing and selling baby parts is truly outrageous.

Lions are basically big, wild kitty cats. You know how people are about cats.

Fun fact: 608 million Google results for cat. 1.38 billion Google results for dog. So it's official, people love dogs more than cats. woof!

Solitaire in Windows 10 is now freemium $1.49 per month.

I wonder if this is why Win10 is free. You pay small fees to "unlock" functionality. "Oh, you want to configure your network? Only $5.99." "I see you would like to use Notepad. On sale today for 99 cents!"

Picked up the full season of Life Is Strange purely based on the Overwhelmingly Positive from 16,650 User reviews. Has anyone played it? Good? Great?

Heard it's really enjoyable, but I was waiting for the "season" to finish. There's 5, right (and 4 just launched)? Or is it 4 total?

Yup. 5 episodes; 4 available now. I bought the Life Is Strange Complete Season (Episodes 1-5) pack.
