Out of the Blue

Wow... we had a bunch of rain yesterday, and this morning there was a layer of ice all over out there, as it is surprisingly cold. This just reminds me to remain grateful for how nice it's been lately, to the extent that I'm not sweating (shivering?) how cold it is right now. Also, happy Ash Wednesday, and happy belated Passover.

I for the life of me dont understand how come regulars here on Blues dont understand why some of us here have a very skeptic outlook with regards to the development of Starcitizen? What's with all the yes men?? Since when did this turn into a fanboy site??? None of you is new here so what gives??

If you dont like the discussion then by all means dont participate, but resorting to adhominem attacks because some of us feel strongly about the subject matter is pathetic. Like I and many others have already stated, the reason why we are negative and skeptical about SC is because the propaganda pouring out of RSI as well as the money pouring in is nothing short of incredible.

*disclaimer VGReagle's cut and paste posts are beyond retarded. I have no idea why he does that, unless he wants to discredit us skeptics who have valid concerns....

Seriously? It's the fucking internet. Don't we have more less important things to bitch/moan/whine about? Do you not understand how hard it is to masturbate to porn, while responding to comments, and be on the phone at the same time? And you want me to be bothered with grammar and spelling?!?

Hope we never date, my socks next to the bed alone would cause you to have an aneurysm.

I read the first dozen comments of the SC $42M thread, and didn't bother commenting or reading further having just posted 20 or so comments trying to temper the negativity in the SC Trailers thread. I just thought, "Here it goes again. Hate springs eternal." I was pretty much spent. Need a week or so to recharge the ol' batteries before wading into that again.

What baffles me is why you guys keep trying to "temper the negativity." Why? Who cares what people think about it? If it was on the verge of not making its funding goal, I can see why you'd want to help it as much as possible, but it's obviously doing great funding-wise, so why worry about some imbeciles trashing it every chance they get?

Seriously, stop letting trolls / haters get to you that badly.

I can't help myself!!

Haven't gone to a movie in years. Sadly, it doesn't seem to make much of a difference.

First, spelling falls under grammar. It's not grammar AND spelling. When you speak of grammar it includes it. And Uncle Jack is a proper and complete title which is why they're capitalized - like Uncle Sam. Simply referring to any uncle makes it small case. If you don't understand the difference you should brush up on your remedial grammar.

you know what's a shitty turn of events?

Is it when people don't capitalize properly? Construct run on sentences? Or otherwise fail to make the attempt at utilizing basic grammar correctly? Yeah, that annoys me too.

Or when people focus the way an issue is presented instead of the addressing actual issue itself?

Grammar. The difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse, and helping your uncle jack off a horse.

Or when someone doesn't know the difference between grammar and spelling?

Well, everything he spelled he spelled correctly, so his comment stands.


Failure to capitalize is a spelling error, not a grammatical one. Both clauses are grammatically correct, but the spelling error (Uncle Jack vs. uncle jack) changes the meaning.

Honestly, I'm just tired of hearing week after week that "oh! Star Citizen raised another 1M dollars!" I don't give a shit. Stop reporting on it. Let us know when the game is in Beta phase and we actually get to SEE some content that was born from the fruit of the tree.

So just don't click on the threads? Its news, of course Blue is going to report it. I don't like reading about umpteen kickstarters and F2P games but I just try to tune that stuff out.

Yeah I don't know what the deal is with that game but it turns some people into really annoying trolls. I just skim them now for the most part.

you know what's a shitty turn of events? when fans of a certain game won't bother going into the comments for said game to have discussions with other fans because it's a foregone conclusion that the first, oh, 40 posts are going to be nothing but trolls and haters who know next to nothing about the game doing nothing but shitting on it. for seemingly no other reason than to prevent anyone from liking it just because they don't. and it amazes me how much energy these guys have; every. fucking. post, the warm, foul smelling drivel from these guys is relentless. trolling i get; they get tired/bored quickly and move on. but for these clowns it's an endless campaign of hate that serves no purpose other than to belie how ridiculously invested they are in the failure of a game. a motherfucking game! i don't get it! rant over!
