This is just pledge stuff.

No, it's not. It's a cynical grab for more money off those who's money they have already got.

Pledges don't normal come with a store front that has a cart system - that a Store. A Pledge is where you can donate any some of money from $1 dollar to $100,000,000 to a cause that you think is worthy without being lured into spending/'pledging' more for extra bits and pieces for the 'rewards'/items you have already paid for. Pledges don't normal come with a system where you can trade you item/'reward' in for store credits for other items that are in their store.

I don't see anything in their store (that's what it is called on their website, a store.) that says "Just pledge what you would like" instead there are phases like

"Pick the ship that best fits your play style, from fast, agile starfighters to multi-crew explorers."

or "Expand your fleet by adding more ships to your Hangar!'

or "Trick your ship with a new skin or upgrade to the latest Hangar design!"

They are all sale pitches.

The only thing that make sense with the 'Pledge' idea is that that is how cults get money off of they cultists.

I'm suprized that Christ Roberts has not yet said that true Citizen tithe 10% of their income to CIG.

But if you what to think of it has a Pledge, well, imho, more the fool of you. But it anit a Pledge.

Also, I've never heard of having sales of pledges before like the "Gamescon Flash Sale" that is on till the end of Gamescon. A Sale is when you are selling something.

THE

FUCK????

That's very crappy pay to win/money grab shit right there .... Thinking CIG is aching for more money.

$25-$75 dollars for modules for internet spaceships that still don't yet have a game.

Totally Crazy - I'm starting to feel offended that Chris Roberts could treat his fan base like this.

... or that FPS module that was only 'weeks, not months away' 3 weeks ago.

It did look nice, but I don't know if it was really a good showing of any game play, more just a tech demo.

Still, I'd say that CIG will get more star wars nerds wetting their undies and shooting money out of their butts for Chris Roberts to continue to play with.

Also seemed to be edited/cut up due to them switching player views so often ... any videos of this form just a single pov for like 15 mins?

Also - They love the lens flair abit to much imho.

My Ball Mouse is still hanging with pride on the wall. I stuck with it for along time after 'optical' mice came out.

That Ball Mouse TOTALLY pwn n00bs. (using Logitech m510 now, anyone want to inform me of what I should be looking to upgrade to next?)

News Comments > Star Citizen FPS May Come Next Month

My issue is when people are presenting information that is demonstrably wrong and/or misleading.

Like when you said yesterday -

They have 15% of the company working on the FPS module. And yes, my quote is direct from Chris Roberts.

Which is wrong and misleading due to Chris Roberts saying outwise in the very interview that this thread is about.

Without being personal - I troll these topic due to what I see as people placing misplaced faith in Chris Roberts - your response's are starting to come across as a Parriot in White Knight armour You eat everything that he says with out any salt at all - watch out for cramp.

ROFL

His efforts to develop Freelancer put his company, Digital Anvil, into a place where it had run out of money and had to be brought out to stay alive. Microsoft had enough money to take the risk that was buying Digital Anvil with out even have to think much about it - it was during Microsoft $$$$ days.

Even still, they where not prepared to just keep giving Digital Anvil money while Chris was in charge.

There is a track, there is a record.

Anyway that avoids the point that you said you there was no second chance at making this game, while I pointed out that there very much could have been if he choose to keep it smaller to start with.

Wrong - It says right thier in the text that Blue posted and I quote Christ Roberts

"A large amount of the company, especially now, has been working on it. We've got extra help from the German studio, which is a bunch of CryEngine experts."

Your quote of Chris Roberts is 3-4 weeks only and as the word 'has' in it; The Chris Roberts quote I used is form the new article i.e. a few days old at most and shows how they have now move more people onto it to get it done ..... it's there in that video .... did you not hear him say so?

This is how CIG should have gone about this - making the oringal 20 million level of game, learning from that and moving on to improve and make better a second time round.
There is no 'round two' - there's one shot at a game like this.

That's bullshit - if he made a good game that people enjoyed there would easily be a round two - after all how many times has he made space sim/fighter games already? 4 Wing Commanders, Starlancer, Freelancer and here we are at round six!

Thing is, is he is not really building on anything, he has gone back to the start and is trying for/backing on a bases full home run in the first innings when he would have imho been better to start smaller and work his and his teams way up - remember he made a new studio for this, does it not make sence to you that they should get some smaller progects out first to get their production shecludling and team work up to speed?

However, you have to remember that it's being developed by a third-party studio - the other modules are being developed independently to minimise the impact of a delay with any one of them.

Wrong - It says right thier in the text that Blue posted and I quote Christ Roberts

"A large amount of the company, especially now, has been working on it. We've got extra help from the German studio, which is a bunch of CryEngine experts."

Also why do you use GTA 5 as an exsample? To me that undermines what you are trying to use it to say. For instance GTA 5 greatness comes form Rockstar evolving their games over time, using each one to learn lessons for the next. Exsample - the greatly improved shooting in GTA 5 over GTA 4 came very much form the work they done on Max Panye 3, Driving from lessons they learned with their Midnight Club games and the fleshing out of the open world eviroment from Red Dead Redemption.

This is how CIG should have gone about this - making the oringal 20 million level of game, learning from that and moving on to improve and make better a second time round. CIG is NOT a AAA game development house, at this stage, they have no track record at all apart form getting money from crowd funding. Roberts anit released a game in over a decade.

Also you mentioned Hollywood level voice actors (?) like most AAA games have these days - other that Kevin Spacey in a COD game, I struggle to think of any in the last 5 years - could you list 3 recent exsamples? (none in GTA, none in Assassian Creed, none in Far Cry)

ARK is killing it. They must be renting apartments to house money like in the the movie Blow at this point

They should exchange all their money for internet pew pew spaceships in Chris Roberts record breaking, crowd funded, super duper, BDSSE!!! It would take up less space than having to rent apartments* to store it. And how could you lose, Chris Roberts knows what he's doing!

*that joke has nothing to do with Derek allueuding to CIG paying for rent on a house/apartment - that is it's own joke.

That Rocket League is exactly like/ is Carball mod for Unreal 2004.

I loved Carball, remember when there was only like about 9 people playing across the whole world due to the patch up-dates and we got 6 togeather in one game! (should have called it "the 2/3rds world champs!"

Glad its back, wondering if the origanl mod maker is making anything off this - it may have been sold on way back when?

Bluesnews Carball with the mode maker posting in.
