That's not absconding. Nor is it fraudulent. The game may suck, but not fraudulently so. Don't be like Cutter and assign the word "fraud" to everyone that sucks at their job.

By your estimation, is Star Citizen fraudulent? Or is it just people doing a shitty job?

What have they done that's fraudulent?

Calling something fraudulent requires some kind of evidence. We have zero evidence that they're even lying to us.I just think they're doing a shitty job, and anyone still giving them money is an idiot. Not because Roberts is buying a vacation home or three, but because the game is going to be the next NMS, in that nothing they do can live up to expectations (which wasn't the only issue with NMS, mind you.)

Lets put aside Star Citizen itself for a moment - and say you set out on a task that is 100% known and proven to be impossible, all the while convincing people to give you funding based on the idea that it IS possible (because you yourself refuse to accept the 100% known facts) - wouldnt that be considered fraudulent on some level? If you firmly believe the impossible is indeed possible - is that enough to absolve you of all responsibility for the fact that you are wrong?

If Roberts and his company end up utterly failing at the task of making the game a functional reality, and then also find themselves in a position of being unable to refund the backers, it could be said that the whole thing was effectively fraudulent - even though the intention was to make the greatest video game of all time in the history of the universe. Effective reality isnt cancelled out by belief systems - although that does tend to be the default position of most people, as well as the basis of society and civilization.

If you want to argue accurate facts, then you need to be extremely precise about the actual effects of actions themselves, and not necessarily what a person says or thinks or believes or wants, etc.

Proven to be impossible? By whom, Derek Smart?
Your idea of "known facts" doesn't really fit reality. We don't know it's impossible, we just suspect it is. In 1998, we probably thought GTA3 was impossible.

If Roberts and his company end up utterly failing at the task of making the game a functional reality, and then also find themselves in a position of being unable to refund the backers, it could be said that the whole thing was effectively fraudulent - even though the intention was to make the greatest video game of all time in the history of the universe.

No, no it's not fraudulent. Fraudulence requires deception, particularly of the criminal variety. Based on the facts you're creating, Roberts is not deceiving because he does not think it's impossible.
Now, if this fails and Roberts ends up with a new wing on his house, yes, I'll give you that it's fraudulent, but right now there's literally no evidence of bad will.

If you want to argue accurate facts, then you need to be extremely precise about the actual effects of actions themselves, and not necessarily what a person says or thinks or believes or wants, etc.

This is fun, because you're creating "facts" based on your assumptions and getting annoyed I am not buying them. You're also creating an entirely new definition of fraud.

Stop feeding the fucking trolls. It's the reason most people have little idiots like Beamer on ignore, and have since ignore became a usable function on this site. He's an attention seeking child and nothing more. He very obviously doesn't understand shit from shinola and yet so many of you keep feeding the little prick. And he sits there on his little PC in his parents little basement laughing his fat ass off every time one of you bites the hook. Is his pattern not obvious to some of you? Every single time people have a discussion on this site, the little bastard comes in to play devil's advocate. He quotes people that he knows have him on ignore in order to instigate a response. That's the very definition of troll. He makes skankhunt42 look like an amateur. He obviously has some mental disorder and needs meds, or more likely still, to be institutionalized. He's desperate for attention and you keep giving it to him. Fucking stop it. Ignore him and he - and his ilk - will finally go on back to Kotaku from whence they came.

Jesus, dude. Remember that time you claimed to have been a professional bartender yet you didn't know what it meant to order a drink up, yet insisted you did?

You're this site's reoccurring joke.

So by this she means run a crowdfunding drive for a couple of million bucks and then just absconds with the money? That sound about the size of it?

And VW finds this pretty funny because after Jan 20th it'll all disappear. It's carte blanche for the corporations for the next 4 years in America. Welcome back to the gilded age of the robber barons.

What money has Brianna Wu kickstarted and absconded with? Her crappy game only generated $13k, and it's been released, so...

But this is the kind of sloppy, irrational hate I expect. Plenty of reasons to dislike Wu, who is perfectly dislikeable on her own, but people keep feeling the need to invent new ones.

Dude, her game was delayed. That doesn't just happen in this industry to people I disagree with.

The PC port of her game (which is all that Kickstarter was for) was massively delayed by years and while the game itself is pretty awful, the PC port was absolute hot garbage that was basically abandoned after going up on Steam. Not to mention how she's been getting thousands a month from Patreon to supposedly hire and pay someone to deal with all the harassment she claims to be getting, a person who by all accounts, probably never existed.

I mean hey, be smug if you want but aside from her insufferable personality and injecting herself into controversies on purpose in order to generate attention for herself, she's also a terrible developer and quite likely, a fraud.

No one is saying she's a good developer or a good person. But Cutter said she absconded with crowdfunded money. She made barely any money on Kickstarter and she delivered what she said she would.

That's not absconding. Nor is it fraudulent. The game may suck, but not fraudulently so. Don't be like Cutter and assign the word "fraud" to everyone that sucks at their job.

Cutter wrote on Dec 21, 2016, 13:54:
I hate those sorts of articles because they never give you a cost benefit analysis. How much does this sort of service cost? How efficient is it really when it can only make one flight at a time. It goes to a destination than has to return to refuel/recharge before going out again, rinse, repeat. And it only handles small packages. This seems more gimmicky to me than anything else. About the only thing I see this as a real benefit for is things like pizzas, or even medical related things like organ transplants. That would actually make sense where time is the critical factor.

Why would Vice do a cost/benefit analysis? They don't have the data. At all. Only the company running this has the data. And this is cutting edge technology, which is never profitable. This is planning for the future, one that may never come, but one that could be profitable down the road. Expecting it to be profitable in Y1 is moronic.

Tech ventures are never profitable in Y1. They're lucky if they're profitable in Y5. I mean, when CBS did their first story on Amazon in 1997, did you demand they explore how profitable it was to ship a book?

That brings it under $20...but I'm still hesitant to pull the trigger if the Steam sale is supposedly starting tomorrow

This game literally made you feel like a god, something no MMO has done since. Early in the game, if you were a higher level than someone else, they couldn't even touch you. I would run into a town, kill everybody in it. Run to a dungeon, kill everyone in it. Everyone I ran into on the way anywhere died too. The only people who lived were the ones who quickly bowed and sweared their fealty to me when they saw me coming, so that I could get a percentage of any experience they earned for themselves. This kept my level higher without even having to try, allowing me to go on murder sprees for 16 hours a day.

Ended up selling my character, Blood, at level 43'ish. I was so obsessed with the game I couldn't even concentrate on my college coursework, haven't been addicted to anything that hard since early Ultima Online.

Haven't played it since, but always found comfort in the fact that it was still up and running. I think this officially marks the end of the Golden Years of MMO gaming, it's a bittersweet day.

This... sounds miserable to play against. When I was a teenager playing hours of games a day, maybe. But now? This is part of why I have no interest in going online in most games.

Man, 1999? I would have guessed 2002.

This is the MMORPG I've played the most. All I did, though, was the beta test. It was kind of fun. Kind of.

I ended up being partially responsible for a character wipe, too. There was some dungeon with a boss at the end, still a fairly early dungeon, and when I got to it I saw a group of maybe 3 people standing around, waiting for it to spawn. Weird, I thought, I'd never seen that (which is the exact opposite of my time in WoW.) When he spawned and we killed him, I saw why - he dropped some loot far beyond what we should be getting at our level. So I spent an hour there with those people. We'd split who took the loot each time. By the end, though, we had quite a crowd, but since I got there early I had a full suit of gold armor or some such.

The next day they admitted a bug and said they'd do a character wipe. They'd been planning to, anyway, but moved it up because this destroyed the balance. In retrospect, I exploited an obvious bug, but I was a teenager, I didn't care, it was fun seeing what I could get. I didn't log back in after the wipe, though - I was leaving for a long vacation and it didn't seem worth starting over.

Maybe 3 or 4 weeks in that beta? Compared to the 10 days I spent in WoW. Most I've played an MMORPG. Also, man, remember when you got into betas and they physically mailed you a CD and some swag? I remember how excited I got when the Tribes beta kit arrived at my house...

QFT...

This article is tripe. The current President expanded and abused surveillance powers like never before. We barely have a 4th Amendment now.

Yet those who regularly disregard Boing Boing's content may bandwagon behind greater Federal surveillance, just as this article pushes anti-PEOTUS people to all of a sudden rally for a Government limited to reasonable searches.

Stop treating Constitutional Rights like football plays. If it works for my team, I like it. If it works against the other team, I like it. That's a 4-to-8 year alternating Tyranny, not a Republic.

Natural Rights aren't tactial assets of craven 2-party system hacks and their media accomplices. We see what you're doing.

I generally like the EFF but this is complete bullshit and outright lying.

"He promised to identify and deport millions of your friends and neighbors, track people based on their religious beliefs, and suppress freedom of the press."

No, he said he was going to deport illegal criminals, and what's wrong with that? He's said he's going to crack down on Islam, not religion in general. And after what we saw through out Europe today - yet again - it's long past due. The far-left needs to pull its collective heads out of the sand and understand that we can't all live on farts and good intentions, and that everyone standing around holding hands singing Kumbaya isn't going to fix anything.

I just got the LG 65" C6 OLED a few days ago. It's jaw dropping and so thin it borders on ridiculous. People were complaining about lag with consoles but I didn't have any issues with the updated firmware. It is the only worthy successor I've seen to my Panny plasma and it leaves that old set in the dust.

Which plasma? I have a VT25 that I hope never dies. My buddy loved it so much he got the ZT60, I think it was? The top of the line one (mine had been when it came out, but then they went ZT a few years later), basically the one people said finally rivaled the Pioneer Kuro. And, of course, therefore the final year they made plasmas.

I hear the OLEDs are right there with them.

I wonder if CIG's siphoning of CryTech engineering talent has something to do with it. Or perhaps leaving CryTech to join CIG is a result of financial issues with CryTech. Kind of interesting considering Derek predicted CIG would be bankrupt by early 2016.
Nope. CIG was only able to poach staff because Crytek had major financial issues and couldn't pay staff. It's why Crytek had to sell Homefront: The Revolution to another publisher back in 2014.

As for Derek, he predicted a lot of things and none of them have been accurate. He's simply a troll, jealous at the notion that anybody could produce better games than him. I'm assuming he was molested as a child, as he is not right in the head.

I'm starting to think you're Chris Roberts in disguise...or maybe Sandy...

I think Blues has been infiltrated! We need to institute PLAN B, everyone to the panic room! Outtahere

Anyway, Crysis is still the benchmark after all these years, believe it or not. People still say #canitruncrysis when they buy the latest toaster. I thought Crysis 3 was pretty damn good...well, the first part, up to a little past the middle, then it was a slog. Same with Crysis 2. Like they could always make an interesting first half of a game but it just always went on too long, like a bad movie. And the first Crysis had this. You power through all the way to the mountain, thinking that the big finale will be there and NOPE! You still have a whole 'nother act, brotha! Fuck!

I never finished Far Cry, I maybe did about 10% and lost interest. I should go back to it. It was the first thing, aside from Half-Life 2 that I got on STEAM (not that I needed it, I had already bought it - twice)...

=-Rigs-=

Yeah, I think that sums up Crysis 2 for me: felt great, then became a slog. Just too long. I know some here refuse to buy a game if it isn't 20+ hours long (some demand 60!), but after 10-12, these FPS games really wear out their welcome for me. They go from "this is the best thing ever!" to "Jesus, just end!" I don't know why I don't walk away.

To your point about there being a whole other act, yes! I vaguely recall this for Crysis 3, but that was the single thing that bothered me with Far Cry 3. I felt like I was finally accomplishing something, and I was ready to be done, then suddenly it springs a second island on you. It's a faster island, and it had some very fun parts, and I still consider that the best game of that year (probably, I really loved that game), but I was just ready to sit back and smile at something well done, not keep doing it.

The Crysis games were love 'em or hate 'em kind of games - personally I loved them - but there's no question Crytek made some incredible tech. It's a shame nothing really interesting beyond the Crysis series made use of it. Unless I'm missing something? (And no, I'm not counting Star Citizen because from what I've read CIG has retooled it to the point that it is practically a new engine.)

I also loved Crysis. I think I played 1 & 2. Maybe 3? I remember getting a little tired of it in the middle of the second game, with some tedious passages.

Then again, saying that, I remember the end of the original Far Cry, where you had a sequence requiring you to fight something like 6 rocket mutants at once. I had to "cheat" by pushing a chair in the path of an auto-close door so I could run back halfway through for ammo and health. It... it just wasn't remotely fun.

edit - This part here, if I recall. Not even fun to watch. And wow, I don't remember Far Cry looking that awful.

You can find more sympathetic comments YouTube comments section, where some hopeful fans declare the female species "over."

I'm sure that plenty of women mourn the possibility of sex with guys willing to quickly trade them in for the opportunity to dry hump a coffee machine.

Not everyone who wants a personal assistant with an avatar waifu wants to have sex with it you know It is a playful take on personal assistant zystems. (I call them PAZ , get it? From metal gear? ;p) and as a geek, I am naturally curious how far we can push this technology, I want VR and full android integration! Talking assistant that knows what I need to buy at the end of the week? Sign me up

I completely agree you can be sensible and rational about a product like this. With you posting it, I assumed you would be.

However, I don't think the video is aiming for the sensible and rational, it's aiming for the lonely male who has an anime female avatar on Twitter and spends his time asking wondering why the stupid whore in the dorm across the hall won't date him; she's probably too much of a bitch to realize what a nice guy he is. In any case, that's who many of the responders in most articles for this turned out to be.

Had it been, rather than a "sexy" anime character, it was Mr. Belvedere (or Mr. Beauregard, if that suits better), it'd not have this response, haha.

edit - in other words, this got hit with the internet reaction this season of South Park tried to explain. When it launched, a handful of guys said they wanted to bang it and forget women forever. Some people made fun of them. Some people saw the jokes, but not the original comments, and got annoyed that people were nerd-shaming. Some people saw that and got annoyed that making fun of nerds who want to bang AI was suddenly off-limits. It rippled out from there.

Another technologically backward console with a gimmick. After how badly they bungled the WiiU they lost me as a customer. Only a Retro developed Metroid could pique my interest at this point.

If the gimmick is good, it doesn't need the graphics. Great graphics won't make a great Nintendo game better. Yes, it won't get Call of Battlefield 18, but it will get new Mario, Zelda, Smash Brothers, and Mario Kart games. Games that run very well with older hardware.

If the price point is right, this works. I just doubt the price point is right. At $249, this is a buy for a lot of people. At $299, suddenly this falls apart.

$199 on Black Friday? I'd almost definitely buy this. $199 and a Mario game? Done deal. From a guy that hasn't owned a Nintendo console since the GC (one of my all-time favorites), but owned a PS3 and Xbox 360.

It's always fun to play the "guess where Cutter's views fall" game.
Essentially, look at it from "does this impact Cutter."

If a topic is about rich CEOs, then Cutter will call them evil for holding back wages, because that may impact him directly.

If the topic is about millenials complaining about bad wages, then he'l call them entitled, because he's not a millenial so there's no way he can fathom improved wages for millenials helping him out, personally.

Never mind that there's a huge inconsistency between endlessly complaining about low wages, then calling others doing so "entitled."

That works the other way around too, though. There are plenty of people who believe Fox News literally is the mouth piece of the devil, while blithely swallowing everything CNN, MSNBC and HuffPo say as the absolute gospel.

Every media outlet has an agenda nowadays.


Which is why I say 2005-2010. FN hasn't gotten better, it's just they're no longer alone.
