News Comments > Star Citizen's Record Funding Drive Ends

I wish everyone who funded this luck, but I'm waiting for the final version before buying it. It all depends on the pay-to-win aspect of the game for me, I want to buy a meaningful and deep single player experience only.

This is exactly how I feel about this. The funding model makes me worried for how the multiplayer will work since people are already buying in-game items.

I was very tempted to fund this (would have been my first "kickstarter" funding) mainly due to who he is and the sheer amount of work that went into this BEFORE and during the campaign. I will 100% buy this at full price for the single player/private server portion after it gets a few reviews from reviewers who play it with a stick instead of a point and click. I doubt I'll ever get into the "MMO" servers though, mainly due to the give-aways from the funding drive.

News Comments > Star Citizen Funding Homestretch; Video

I was wrong....I read the stretch goal wrong. The stretch goal added 5 more missions, the way it was placed made me think that it was a stretch goal:

  • Squadron 42
  • 35 missions in Squadron 42

    Is on the first stretch goal, so I took that to mean it was required for the Squadron 42 piece, when in reality the funding does talk about Squadron 42 with initial funding (with 30 missions).

    I'm used to admitting when I'm wrong, it happens a lot. lol

    I just feel like this will be a "pay to win" game, despite what he may have said. They're already selling permanently insured ships, credits, and now they're coming out with more and more "bonus" packs that give people more items.

    I can't compete with someone who can blow $1000 on a kickstarter to get a special ship that can't be "lost" and gets tons of money. If the world is persistent, they have a huge starting advantage, and with the push for "player driven economies" games have these days, anyone with some economic skill will be able to catapult themselves to an unreachable height. Put the add-on packages on there and they can perform any role without fear of losing their ships.

    At least that's how I'm reading this game, which looks Pay To Win to me.

    I am interested in the single player game though....so I'll most likely buy when it comes out and skip the Multiplayer. It's too bad, I love space shooters, and even cleaned the dust off my X52 pro the other day, but I can't see this being designed AROUND single player since adding a single player campaign was a stretch goal, not part of the original project.

    Obviously an image of the physical CD is no proof ;p But they do wittingly say "users who can show this happened to their copies of the game"

    A simple photo does not show....

    I agree with you. But the source article doesn't say that, it just says

    If the universe thinks that you should be playing Mass Effect right now, who are we to argue? In fact, we want to help! The first fifty fans affected by this phenomenon to send us a picture holding their special disc 2 will receive a code for a FREE PC copy of Mass Effect Trilogy.

    Remember, in order to qualify, YOU must be in the picture, and disc 2 of your Call of Duty: Black Ops II must be visible. Got it?

    I thought the discs were printed correctly but just had the wrong data. How do the photos show the wrong disc? Is it a different paint job then the COD and the Mass Effect 2 games on the flub?

    Has anyone checked this out yet? I was a fan of Sierra's "Outpost" back in the day, and really want this to be like what Outpost was *supposed* to be. Looks like it's $7.99 on GOG, a price I'm willing to take a risk at.

    Just had a pop-up takeover ad (with audio) from Call of Duty Black Ops II when visiting the front page, Blue.

    I just had one too, mine was an orange and black one for turtle beach, I think it may have been using Black Ops 2 in the ad, not sure.

    Yeah I saw that and that public beta ended yesterday, but there's also a big list of notes seemingly non-editor related, and then I keep looking at the headline here. heh.

    Yeah, the wording is a tad confusing.

    I got on this back in November of 2010....the game has come a long way...I haven't played it much in the past year though, just dabbling when they put out new builds every once in a while. I'm not sure it's what I expected the end product to be, but I guess I'll have to wait on that judgement till the final build anyhow. :-)

    Yeah the deal appears to be over. Dammit! I thought it ran untill October 1st. Welp, I was going to buy it today after that great demo but now I'll wait and see if they do something similar again.

    So did I. They were a little tricky on this one. The deal to trade in for XCom goes till Oct 1st...however the deal for the other game FREE ended on the 21st, but to their credit they extended it till today. I bet they don't need to extend it anymore now that there's a demo though. It was the ONE thing holding me back from pre-purchase. Most likely I'll end up picking it up on GMG if I get it anyhow, it's still 10% off for the NA version and I don't need any of the pre-order bonuses on steam.

    Neehaw! So excited!

    I haven't pre-ordered yet, as I'm holding out for a decent sale price. Has anyone found any deals, aside from a 10% pre-order discount from Amazon and GMG?

    [EDIT] The below may no longer be valid...just looked at the "free" game and it looks like it's $20 now ... Yup, blog says it ended at 11:00 UTC today. Sorry. Link to Blog About Deal Ending[/EDIT]

    You can get the game for 44.99 + $8 off using the following link on Green Man. Good till Oct. 1st-ish...depending on time zone. Obviously no steam "goodies" if you go this route. I've been holding off for a demo....gonna try it out tonight and buy if I'm into it. Damn. Just got into GW2 as well. lol.

    And after all the tax dollars ATT has received over the years HTF can they swing this?!

    Not sure, and didn't read the article, but I'm guessing they don't own the copper, so they're simply not going to provide service over the copper. Most of the subsidies go to the local owner of the physical plant, and I think after the deregulation in 1996 AT&T pulled out of owning the physical side of things and concentrated on just providing service.

    Any chance I can get an invite to the guild? I was able to transfer over to the server, it seems like it goes from "High" to "Full" and back and forth, but when I looked it happened to be on "High" and they let me switch over for free.

    What server are the blues people on for when I start playing next month?

    A bigger concern will be which servers are full. I just started this weekend, and a good number of the servers were either "Heavily" populated or "Full". I forget which server I saw posted that people were on, but it was full....one of the guys there may recall the name...since I'm sure there's not a server called "Thunder Road" and that's what name is coming to my head. lol
