The Kickstarter Page
for Star Citizen
notes that there are 24 hours to go (and counting) in the crowdsourcing campaign for this upcoming space simulation, which now stands at $4.7 million plus (and counting). They now offer advance sales of individual ships to support development, and one last AI gameplay video
to help you choose, saying: "This is a short video of the AI attacking and defending a Bengal carrier. It demonstrates intelligent collision avoidance - a dense asteroid field, other space ships, including a large capital ship plus offensive and defensive roles. Note that this is very early pre-pre Alpha. There was a bug with laser bolt speed in this build and they were incorrectly capped at a very low speed. That is not how they will behave in the game. But we thought the video was awesome enough to show you anyway!" Continue here to read the full story

Bye week is always a little odd for an NFL fan, it certainly throws me off a little. The one thing one can hope is that it falls at a time that seems advantageous to your team, and with the Giants in the midst of stumbling which follows their historically poor performance in recent Novembers, that certainly seems to apply in this case, so I'll be as happy about it as possible.
