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?

Ben Kenobi: We'll pay you two thousand now, plus fifteen when we reach Alderaan.
Chris Roberts: Seventeen? [Ben nods] Okay, you guys got yourselves a ship. We'll be ready when you are. Docking Bay 94.

/Exit Kenobi & Skywalker

Chris Roberts: Seventeen Thousand! Those guys must really be desperate. Chewie, get back to the ship and prepare the hype drive.

It's worse than that, they actually burn their equipment at the end of the game! I believe it was the great Hendrix himself who witnessed such incendiary behaviour, subsequently being inspired to burn his own 'bat' after each music match that he played.

George Michael just died, he was 53.

I would say,"Suck it 2016" but somehow, this doesn't seem...quite right to say *cough*.

That's saddened me..he always seemed like a decent fella, except when he was being erm, indecent. RIP George.

"Fast Buck" Roberts in the 25th Century

In the year 2012, Kickstarter launched one of the last of America's deep wallet probes. Aboard this compact starship sim a lone astronaut, Captain Chris "Fast Buck" Roberts, was to experience comical forces beyond all comprehension. In a freak mishap, his hooker-and-blow-support systems were overloaded by cash injections beyond imagination. Star Citizen was blown out of its plan trajectory into a developmental orbit 1,000 times more vast, an orbit which was to return "Fast Buck" Roberts to earth 500 years later. *cue music*

My favourite "Christmas" movie isn't set at the North Pole, it's set at the South. It's got everything you need from a festive film, loads of snow and ice, a whisky drinking chess computer and a shape shifting alien lifeform that wants to unite mankind. It's John Carpenter's The Thing.

So, I'm completely unfamiliar with this Snowman story/film. Which is odd because we generally get everything here in the colonies which is a mainstay back at home. This is a regular thing in Britain? Here it's always the Rankin and Bass specials, Rudolph in particular.

It's a fair bet that you'll find The Snowman on one of the channels at Christmas in the UK. It's one of the staples, along with the queen's speech, Sergio Leone's Spaghetti western trilogy and The Great Escape.

Given the thick Mockney accents in that trailer and the theme of involuntary plasma transfusion, I think they should have called it Bloody Hell.

"We're picking something up on the long range scan, captain"
"What is it, ensign?"
"I'm not sure Captain, it seems to be some kind of amorphous, dollar hungry space based blob, it's consuming cash at a hitherto unknown rate."
"Evasive maneuvers, ensign."
"Aye sir, changing course."

The plucky Brits fought a valiant rearguard action against the Nazi onslaught, spurred on by the dreadful thought of living in a tyrannical, highly surveilled state, bereft of personal freedom. Yep, we really dodged a bullet with that one.

It's like how the police always investigate themselves and find in favor of their own 99.7% of the time.

Is that an accurate figure, or did you just pluck it out of your surveillance camera?

Generally, the UK ASA is a very stringent body and will clamp down on anything that is a bit nebulous or downright misleading, although it has clearly fucked up on this occasion.

Ah, the delicious irony. Here we are discussing freedom and Cutter, bless his poor troll soul, has had his curtailed. Thanks Blue

I just want you to know that every time I see your avatar, I read your post in a John Cleese voice.


Lol, that's cool nin, I think I'll be doing that too from now on
