Can't you sell your ship on ebay?

Potentially. I've been screwed in the past selling things online so I haven't done anything like that for a very very long time.

HALF built? That's being awfully generous, isn't it?

It's a good article, though. That dude who dropped 22.5K on it, holy heck.

5% would be generous.

I'm in for $140 and I wish I could go back and reverse it.

You're getting what you backed, you just had expectations that were unreasonable for what was promised.

Yeah no still wrong. I backed a Wing Commander successor. That was what was promised during the kickstarter and the very first video showed that. I am not getting that in the remotest sense. You can't tell me I'm getting what I backed when it plays nothing like it and never will. I turn left, screen goes red. Every single time. Doesn't happen in Elite. Or Wing Commander. Or X-Wing/TIE. You don't see your inconsistency in telling me I'm getting Wing Commander while telling me I can't play it like Wing Commander. I've been ripped off, end of story.

Edit: Here's an example from a guide I looked up that illustrates my point perfectly

"There is one very important step in learning to fly your ship in Star Citizen: FORGET ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING YOU THINK YOU KNOW ABOUT FLYING AN AIRPLANE OR SHIP IN A VIDEOGAME"

So I'm "getting what was promised" while at the same time the fans admit it plays nothing like his or the industries previous games. One of these things are not like the other.

The flight model is constantly being tweaked. Some fans don't like the changes introduced in 1.1 and I would be surprised if we don't see further changes before release. That said, I don't have a problem with any of the mechanics and I came from games like Tie Fighter, Wing Commander and Starlancer. Flying straight at your enemies is a terrible strategy - you should be using asteroids for cover and strafing to approach them from the side or behind.

Nope. Just nope. Strafing? I backed a Wing Commander successor not a FPS. There isn't always something to hide behind, nor should I need to. If there is no dogfight there is no space sim. I'm happy you and others enjoy it. Some people enjoy eating grubs too. That knowledge doesn't help me if I'm served grubs at some bizarre dinner party I hope I never go to. If the core gameplay is this bad after all this time in development then I've wasted my money and Roberts has wasted my good faith. I'm not getting what I backed, all the extra layers added on top won't change that.

Well I updated and tried "Arena Commander" for the first time in over 6 months....and it fucking sucks. I've been patient, giving them time, not playing into all the negativity or caring about the ever growing scope of the game. None of that really bothered me. But I godamn hate the flight model. It's space joust. Enemies fly at you, you fly at them, you pass each other at incredible speeds far too high to ever turn into their tail and get into a nice chase or dogfight. Over and over and over. Oh and you damn near pass out every time you turn. Fuck me, I just wanted a Wing Commander spiritual successor. I swear it didn't feel this shitty the last time I played, I somewhat enjoyed the swarm mode in a much earlier version. This is progress?

Meanwhile E:D has a fantastic engine and flight model and jack shit all to actually do with it. X:Rebirth was an abortion. Leaving the remaining two great hopes to a console game that reminds me way too much of how Spore turned out and a VR game from the space Excel team. This was supposed to be a golden age of space sims. I'm sorry for being a negative Nancy, I just can't believe how much I hated what I just played. Someone get totally games working on a TIE sequel or something.

I'm a developer too! I'm developing so many things right now they're, uh, really developing. *cough*

And the last game you guys made that shows you can make something that takes advantage of VR was...

I'm sorry that's proprietary information.

Oh wait I get it now. All those years of Microsoft stating it's commitment to PC gaming and doing nothing, the real problem was we're living in the wrong countries. My bad!

Stay classy EA. Few are the companies that will so actively give you reasons not to buy their stuff.

If they weren't tracking everything there is to know about you it just wouldn't be Google.

That replaced their "don't be evil" motto btw.

That was my reference. In Denmark you get the base game free if you donate blood.

Had not seen that. Cool beans.

How much blood do you have to donate to get access to the patch?

All of it.

Now there's a DLC cross promotion I could get behind. Unlock a new character/skin/whatev by getting a code from donating blood at your local red cross.

I still don't see the ability to like... double-click on loot and have your PC move *to* it. You still have to run over it and do the truffle shuffle to get within the loot's hitbox and any of the other PC 3rd person "advancements" games have made in like... the last 20 years.

It is odd considering that both prior games had it and the AI move-to pathing function is already baked into the game since your auto-controlled party members use it for enemies. Came in handy here in the prior games when the cat decides my left arm is a sleeping spot and I only have the mouse to use.

I fully admit I have no clue of the amount of effort needed to fix such a thing in real development terms, but still. I do appreciate the fact they are still supporting the game.

Whatever terrible game your imagination is concocting from that image pales in comparison to how terrible it is in reality. It makes the Virtual Boy look good.

wow, thats pretty huge, have nintendo ever let their characters been used like this for another platform except their own?

Yes, and the games were so awful that they won't publicly acknowledge they existed. Google Nintendo CDi games.

I imagine the quality control will be higher these days though.

Good for them, great game at a more than reasonable price. There's a special sort of sad irony this came out so soon after the death of Maxis and turned out so well. The torch has been passed.

20 years, damn.

Love that game to bits. Fun plot, a goddamned amazing soundtrack, simple yet enjoyable gameplay. It's a damn shame the series has been stuck in limbo for so long, but then again they may no longer be able to put out something that great.
