News Comments > Roberts: Star Citizen Will "Probably" Pass $100M; Release Schedule Expanded
35. Re: Roberts: Star Citizen Will Jan 22, 2015, 11:50 El Pit
 
Mid 2016: Kickstarter for Star Citizen 2.0 is on the way.
End 2016: Servers for the persistent universe go offline, fanboys rejoice because, as Roberts puts it, the crew that worked on this servers is needed for the development of Star Citizen 2.0.
2017: A billion stretch goals are added, including "colored pilot underwear".

Would have supported this, but kickstarter now wants my cc details instead of using Amazon. Sorry, no deal. Bad move by kickstarter, at least for me.

EDIT: I see it's not a kickstarter problem, but a "feature" for non-US based kickstarter projects. D'oh. Still: will wait for this to hit Steam if I can't use Amazon payments to support it. Bummer.

MP3s need VBR. Constant bitrates like 256k are inferior to Lame -v 0. Or waste space and go for 320 k cbr - but it won't sound better than -v 0. For most people and technical equipment -v 2 should do. And use LAME, because there are huge quality issues with lots of other encoders.

11. 2K: Beta = Server Stress Test?! Jan 10, 2015, 04:02 El Pit
 
Jerykk is right as always. Betas are no longer needed, because 2K said that this beta is a server stress test that is just called a beta because 2K don't actually know what a beta is. And, to quote 2K from the article: “In this wonderful digital age we live in, all of those values can still be adjusted via hot fixes on launch day, making a beta still very much worthwhile.”

In other words: release it and patch it later. After the beta, err, server stress test. In Russia and in 2K development, beta stress tests YOU!

*facepalm*

Interesting things going on with the Alien(s) franchise. Neill Blomkamp has been working on an Alien movie that has been scrapped.

Alien reboot coming? I would rather love to see the xenos tearing the Pocahontas smurfs in the next Avatar movies apart!

Still no good sales yet. And is Amazon not doing a sale this year? Enh, just keeping an eye on G2A for Mordor atm. Saw it at $15 a few days ago and shoulda snagged it then as it's hovering around $19 +/- atm. It was already on Amazon for $20 so I'll wait a few more days and see what happens.

I got the premium edition at g2a for 24.00. Auto buy.

IT IS 20 RIGHT NOW!

What?! Dammit, Bats. Must... resist... no... money... GTX970... just... ordered.

Cold shower - NOW. DO NOT PRESS THAT "BUY NOW!" BUTTON!!!! Waaaah!

I think it's a good new feature because of the "play to" functionality for MKV coming with it out of the box.
