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.

As a veteran backer it's nice to be on a forum where everyone isn't drinking the Star Citizen Kool-Aid. I can't stand the circle jerk that goes on at robertsspaceindustries.com. I've had more than a few of my threads shut down for asking simple things like "The Star Citizen Kickstarter page promised a delivery date of November 2014. We're past that date. So when is this game going to be released?"

I posted this question on the Status Report, "We're over two years into this project and we're still seeing concept art. When are we going to start seeing actual in-game screen shots?" I fully expect some Moderator to remove my legitimate question... as they always do. No dissent in Chris Roberts' New World Order.

Oh and as a GM personally I wouldn't make you roll, instead I'd ask how many drinks you've had and compare it to your constitution modifier. Unless of course you've been drinking dwarven ale. Then you earn a drunkenness achievement.

Here's an example of what happens when a veteran Star Citizen backer tries to ask legitimate questions about delivery and project scope.

Despite the Moderator's "Topic has been answered. Thread closed". Looking back at the replies the questions where actually never answered. I believe Tracker came closest to some sort of answer.

Why is this on Bluesnews? It's been available for like 2+ years now.

I heard about the site from a coworker today and thought it was definitely worth sending to Blue. There's more than a few of you who are current or former pen-and-paper gamers.

Why is this on Bluesnews? I've been using it since it came out, most of that time without subscribing.

That's wonderful that you know about it. Posting it on Blues News will make it known to more gamers especially those who have yet to try pen and paper gaming. I know some of you are burnt out on MMOs. Why not try an "old school MMO"?

Plus you can ask the DM to roll the die to see if you're getting drunk! Drunk2

I bought my Ethiopian friend lunch the other day, he often acts like a baby, can that count as my contribution?

It can. I take back everything I said.

Of all the films on that list I liked Transcendence the most. It felt like a science fiction film. It made me think about a lot of things. It made me feel for the antagonist who actually turns out to be the protagonist.

Well, I did spend over $1,000 on subscriptions for WoW -- but it was a game I was actually playing!

I honestly hope you get your money's worth. Because if you do, it will mean it's a good game and I'll be playing it too.

I better or else Chris Roberts is dead to me and I will make it my mission to flame everything he ever done past, present and future. Not to mention that I may seek a class action lawsuit against him if he doesn't deliver. According to Kickstarter the game was promised November 2014.
