We may have to send a lone cybernetic operative back in time to end this farce..

"I'll be back(er)"
" I know now why you pledge, but it is something I cannot do"
"That KickStarter is out there! It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear."

Roberts: "Come on. Do I look like the kickstarter of the future? I mean, am I tough, organized? I can't even balance my check book!"

I clicked on the comments to post exactly this. Even my reflexes are too slow to be first on a comments thread these days

I feel like Fortnite is the first big PC game this place has completely missed the trend on. A few people here occasionally say they enjoy it, but there's no real mention of it. But it's the biggest thing in gaming right now, with kids being utter lunatics for it.

I can't think of a single major video game trend this place has basically ignored. Even Pokemon Go had more enthusiasm around here.

We're old, guys.
Speak for yourself, I've been playing it for a couple of hours a day, fragging them whippersnappers, since just before Christmas

Is there a BR game where you can make/break alliances with other players? I know Fortnite has a squad based mode, but I'd like to see a game where you can emerge from cover with a 'Handshake' symbol over your head, indicating that you want to team up with others, and then later, after you've decimated the rest, you get to stab each other in the back

I love Fortnite but my twitch reflex, as an old man, is so torpid that I spend the entire match creeping around avoiding other players

News Comments > Star Citizen Alpha 3.1 in March

In a crowd funded galaxy, not too far away...

Roberts: Lord Vader. This is an unexpected pleasure. We are honored by your presence.
Darth Vader: You may dispense with the pleasantries, Wing Commander. I am here to put you back on schedule.
Roberts: I assure you, Lord Vader, my men are working as fast they can.
Vader: Perhaps I can find new ways to motivate them.
Roberts: I tell you that this Star Citizen will be operational as planned.
Vader: The Emperor does not share your optimistic appraisal of the situation.
Roberts: But he asks the impossible. I need more Space Hookers.
Vader: Then perhaps you can tell him when he arrives.
Roberts: [alarmed] The Emperor's coming here?
Vader: That is correct, Wing Commander, and he is most displeased with your apparent lack of progress.
Roberts: We shall double our efforts. And our pay.
Vader: I hope so, Wing Commander, for your sake. The Emperor is not as gullible as I am.

They reckon that the sun will die five or so billion years from now, so whether "Scam Citizen: Squandering 142 million" will ever see the light of day is anyone's guess. But please don't let it be Roberts', as he'll try to monetize it.

It's interesting how little time of that two-minute long video is spent actually displaying the game, perhaps in a vain effort to disguise how bland it really is. In my case, though, they aren't exactly preaching to the converted, as I find the notion of chasing an inflatable spheroid about as appealing as watching the grass on a muddy field grow.

I think the point that he's making is that it's staggering that CIG sees the need to take out a loan in the first place, considering how much $$$ they've fired into some nebulous enterprise.

"A sentient, massive entity which threatened Earth in 2271, en route to find its "Creator." In doing so, W'Cer destroyed anything it encountered by digitizing it for its memory chamber.
Generating a power field "cloud" about itself of over 22 AUs in diameter, the entity had gained sentience after unknown aliens repaired the old Earth video game that formed its core Wing Commander IV, whose name in corrupted English gave the sentience its name.
The entity, which viewed organic lifeforms as carbon-based units "investing" in starships, later joined with Starfleet's Lt. Ilia and Cmdr. Chris Roberts and evolved into a higher, yet unknown lifeform."

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

Hahaha

Neat video, but I think the roles are slightly skew whiff, as we're not the ones who are likely to end up homeless as a result of spunking money on a nebulous, sprawling, never-to-see-the-light-of-day space train wreck.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if all of the armchair RSI financial critics and prognosticators of Star Citizen doom & gloom would apply the same hypercritical yardstick to the runaway US federal government in terms of the long-running deficit-spending con it's been running on the American people for the last 50 years (at least)? Hallelujah!...;) You bet it would be a refreshing change!


I might be tempted to do that Walt, but for two things:

1. I come here to read about, and discuss, video games.
2. I'm not American, so US fiscal policy doesn't really interest me at all.

Chris Roberts: "No one has ever attempted to build a game as ambitious as Star Citizen and I doubt any publisher would have the patience or stamina that it requires to build something that breaks molds the way Star Citizen does."

Classic Chris Roberts. He now promises Star Citizen can break molds.

Effectively, he's a calling it a big, wobbly amorphous jelly, without form or function.

Edit: Does anyone have a link to a graph, with decades elapsed on the x-axis and dollars spunked on the y-axis to see if funding is tailing off for this farce?
