News Comments > $45K Star Citizen Refund?

Yeah, we haven't even seen a trailer for SQ 42. Seems odd given that the voice work was all done two years ago as well as that first level. Two years should be enough time to get that campaign mostly complete.

I never did play WC4. Maybe I'll play that over the weekend.

Hasn't SQ42 now shifted from a space flight sim like wing commander, to some sort of pseudo-fps with some ship-to-ship combat?

Sorry I can't get past the whole "spending $45k on a game" part to even think about the legitimacy of the refund claim. Mobile app developers would love to have this whale/person(s?).

While I think it's pure insanity, the number isn't that much if it is split up amongst an entire clan. Let's say 25 people, $1,800 a piece. I wouldn't buy into it, but there are are a fair amount of SC backers with that much or more invested in the game.

I did run into a mission last night where I had to hack into a network on one of the new sewer maps...I had I think 8 turns to reach it and do the hack. I noticed on turn 2 that the game decided it wanted to start you the furthest corner from the objective...all while I was doing the normal 2 forward to overwatch, 2 sprint movement. I was being extra cautious because it was a sewer and full of tunnels and this was a rookie team..didn't make the objective because it literally took me 7 turns to actually reach the same area as the objective with the rookies sprinting instead of being more cautious due to the tunnels.

Surmise to say, I didn't make the hacking objective...and honestly, I don't think it was possible considering that even if I were to have sprinted with the entire squad, it would've taken at least 5 turns to reach the same area only to find out that it was crawling with a squad of 5 Advent and 2 Sectoids. I seriously doubt fresh recruits could've downed that in less than 3 turns, or even been able to handle attempting to hack it under fire.

Why are you sending out squads made up entirely of rookies?

Star Citizen will never be 'finished'; not in the classical use of the term in reference to software development. At some point in the future they may ship something that is vaguely similar to the game they proposed in the original Kickstarter, but at their current development rate, they will never get all of the promised features working in a single product.

I guess this means Splash Damage wants to make a game that will be worse than Dirty Bomb?

Dirty Bomb was made in collaboration with Nexon, which certainly doesn't rate any better than Wargaming...

Dirty Bomb still turned out to be a good game though. It just needs more work (mainly bug fixing and additional content). A bit silly that it's still in beta after so many years, but that beta tag is unfortunately still warranted.

The concept was ok, their execution is where they failed at producing a successor to Quake Wars. The microtransaction-grind of Dirty Bomb doomed it from the get go in trying to compete directly with Team Fortress 2.

I'd be interested in how the bank valued the Squadron 42 IP as collateral. How did they separate it from the Star Citizen framework and give it an accurate valuation, without at least having the art concepts and underlying engine for both games tied into what RSI is considering the Squadron 42 IP?

Well, Sunless Sea has some brilliant writing in it, surprisingly.

That's got me at least mildly interested in what the next Dragon Age game could be, although I probably won't bother getting it before it hits the bargain bin.


Disclaimer: I loved Dragon Age:Origins, played through it a couple times, considering another run through in the near future. However, I skipped Dragon Age 2 entirely, and can't even force myself to finish DA:Inquisition, too MMO-ish or something for me.


I'm in the same boat. DA:Inquisition quests feel meaningless, there's no drive to actually complete them, and no sense of satisfaction in doing so.

I can't help but laugh every time I see Star Citizen on blues. The people here are an overwhelming minority with regards to their views on this game. Like seriously, this is the Westboro Baptist Church of the gaming community.

Perfect summation of Blues vitriol towards this game is the homeless guy here: https://youtu.be/phxRZXd6r9E?t=12

Not that I care one way or another whether a character is transgendered or not, but citing ovotesticular DSD as a response isn't really helping your case

Ovotesticular DSD is the rarest disorder of sex development in humans and has an approximate incidence of less than 1/20,000. At least 500 affected individuals have been reported.

Or, on the other hand, they're on the board of Vulkan.

Maybe, but that would seem contradictory to their desire to make games Windows 10 exclusives that are only offered on their delivery platforms.

Microsoft probably has 250 lawyers working feverishly right now to find a way to crush Vulkan, or neuter it to the point of being useless before any more devs drop DX12 support.

You would be surprised how many do that do. Must be nice to have money like that to just trow around.

Here's a lets play of the games action. looks pretty good so far.

Gameplay looks good? He walks up and enters the agro range, get's shot at, then walks a foot away, and the enemy wanders off as if he never existed; clickfest with poor AI, another waste of the 40k IP.

Why in all holy hell they decided to use the 40k Inquisitor concept to make a diablo-clone, is just beyond all comprehension.

Because 10 years ago everyone was making a WOW clone.

So, is this a top down like Diablo? I didn't notice that when I saw the video, I thought it was more of an FPS type game.

If so, im defiantly interested. Plus how can you go wrong with 4 players Coop?

Every video I've seen of it is 3/4 isometric. You might be thinking of 'Spacehulk:Deathwing'

The 40k source material for Inquisitors screams party-based RPG, or an action-based 3rd person shooter/RPG. With all of the shovelware that is being produced with their IP, Games-Workshop needs to fire whomever is overseeing their foray into gaming.
