So why did he change his mind? It wasn't the money on offer he says: "The time is more important to me than the money."

As much as I am grateful he's not directing this also shows proof that Lucas hates Star Wars. His best friend Steven Spielberg is still making films. It's not like Steven needs the money but he does it because he loves it and his film show that love. The last movies Lucas directed didn't feel like films, they felt like resume pieces for Lucas' businesses. Almost like a glorified demo reel telling other movie studios "Check out this cool stuff we can do."

Based on Double Fine's recent history, I'll wait for reviews and videos on this before I put a cent into it. I'm done trusting them with any kind of advanced funding.

I don't know what's going on with DF. Could you let us know the details?

After raising 10x what they wanted for the Broken Age Kickstarter, it was late, overbudget somehow, split up into two parts and while the first part was considered good by many (I didn't really care for it), the second part is nowhere to be seen. Then they put out Spacebase DF-9 in Early Access, sold a bunch of copies of it, paid back their external investors, then abandoned the project with a massive list of planned features dropped, then deleted in the hope that people wouldn't notice. They're still selling this largely incomplete game for money.

This is EXACTLY how I feel about Chris Roberts and Star Citizen, even though I'm a veteran backer to the tune of $930. Everyday I feel more and more like we're going to get shafted big time...

Now would be a great time for Blizzard to register Titan. I kind of think Titan is a cooler name than Overwatch.

The RSI forums are by far the most insane fanboy slum I ever saw. At this point you might as well forget asking any real question there.. which is really sad ;(

To quote Ben Kenobi: "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy."

They also give 2 times a week video reports on what they did... You can not be more open than that... (OR You could make a reality show 24/7 like big brother :P)

10FTC isn't a weekly report of what they did. It's ten questions taken from subscribers and answered within the scope of what they are willing to share. Actually that last sentence is meaningless given they select questions they know they can answer.

Around the Verse is the only show that tells you "here's what we did", but the segment that actually shares that information only lasts 3-5 minutes. The rest of the show is typical PR filler. Although I really do love BugSmashers. Fun stuff, especially when you get to see under the hood of Star Citizen.

Why are video game developers continuing to use KickStarter? It's regional. If they want world-wide backing go with https://www.indiegogo.com/.

Because Indiegogo gives any money raised, regardless of if the overall goal is hit. Much higher chance of being scammed. Most Kickstarters also accept Paypal, so that should work for all countries?

Very nice point. Thanks for clarifying!

But Valve getting a heafty cut of every game sold? Hardly, they're one of if not the lowest in terms of cuts on every game sold in all the distribution services.

30% to me is healthy enough when you have the largest share.

That also covers payment/billing, file hosting/bandwidth, patching, and matchmaking.


Yep, got it. Also covers HL3 development.

HL3 confirmed!

How long did it take to develop:
GTA V, World Of Warcraft, Destiny, The Witcher 3, Guild Wars 2, Call of Duty games and so on?
Most AAA games take 4-5 years to make. Most games suffer release delays. Many crowdfunded projects and games have suffered delays and still did well when released. Divinity Original Sin. Wasteland 2 and so on.
In fact the kickstarter projects with a higher chance of success usually come from veteran developers. In fact most projects fail.

As you point out. SC has the funds. Has the talent. It continues to show progress on the project. The fact that they are financially stable is precisely why they have a better chance of success than many other projects.

I actually BACKED Star Citizen since 1/2013 to the tune of $930. I absolutely want this game to succeed but at the same time I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid that CIG keeps releasing. I look at this project with a very critical eye. If I see something I don't like I ask in the Star Citizen forums. Unfortunately most of my threads have either been bashed by fellow backers, closed by the Moderators or out-right removed. There was an organization that did stuff like this in the past too: They were called the Nazi party. In Chris Roberts' New World Order there is NO DISSENT. If you dissent you will be silenced.

TL;DR You're not on robertsspaceindustries.com. You can tell us what your REAL feelings are about Star Citizen. No one will silence you here.

P.S. Blue can you tell us if Comet has an email ending in @cloudimperiumgames.com or @robertsspaceindustries.com ? The history looks very suspicious. Like this person is employed by CIG as their resident social media person.
