I've seen this sort of nonsense way too many times with other games. Hyped like crazy, then they failed to deliver. I'll just wait closer to the release date.

That's the exact same quote as the one I posted.

I have a hard time believing a man who is known for being less than honest with the facts.

Hi, fellow web developers. Does anyone know if there's an open-source package for storing binary media files that can be accessed from inside the package for web use? Kind of like WAD files for Doom. I ask because I was able to completely rip all the audio, textures, sound effects, and so forth from the Star Citizen ARK starmap. I thought there might be a need for this on the web and would like to explore it further.

Also pretty funny when you sit back and realize it's Derek Fucking Smart right back in the middle of shit. Sur-PRIZE!

It's not hard to research his newsgroup history to see that crusades are not uncommon. He won't stop until either he dies or CIG dies, whichever comes first. While perturbed with the project, and perhaps even verbally outspoken about it, I never took it to Derek Smart's level of animosity. It's too tiring and not worth the effort. But I guess every hero needs a villain. For Star Citizen fans, it's Derek Smart. For Derek Smart, it's Star Citizen. The truth is blurred somewhere in the scrum.

I guarantee you if he had been given 250m bucks his game would have been completed and delivered long ago. People would still bitch and whine about it but it would have shipped and been playable

What? Perhaps. Who knows!
But given almost all games released by 3000AD have a poor review score. (and I'm not talking about early access), I don't think that would be the best choice.
Just look at the scores on Steam.
Look at the scores on Metacritic : http://www.metacritic.com/company/3000ad-inc

Still if you want to compare. Chris Roberts left the scene with a company that had an average 80 rating score :
http://www.metacritic.com/company/digital-anvil

He came back and with people he knows in the industry build a concept for a space sim that eventually raised $150 Million.

Derek could do the same. So why didn't he and his small team build a jaw dropping concept instead of focusing on criticizing other people's work?

Not a fan of Derek's work, but I'm pretty sure the combined budget for all 3000 AD games to date has never reached $153,007,119. It's like comparing Blizzard's Overwatch to Cornered Rat's World War II Online. CIG is operating at a different tier, in the neighborhood of Rockstar, Infinity Ward, UbiSoft, and DICE.

TL;DR Apples. Oranges.

No matter if you think CIG will or will not deliver the game during this century, there is one think anyone should understand.

I actually like having more than one think.

Time is like a predator; it's stalking Star Citizen. Oh, Mr. Roberts can try and outrun it with demos, conventions, flashy videos. But in the end, time is going to hunt down the project... and make the kill.

Considering "No Man's Sky" for $24. Even with all its' problems it is probably worth that much... but I'm still having trouble pulling the trigger.
I think that's still too much for it.

It has $15 dollars worth of content.

The E3 trailer made me believe the game was close to completion. A tech demo tells me the exact opposite. Also, I see definite nods to Star Citizen. I wonder if this is UbiSoft's answer to Star Citizen's "success?"

Guess we'll wait and see what happens.

I need the ability to add a weight score to the games I have in my wishlist. It has grown so large, it would be ideal to sort by how I've previously rated my anticipation.

Here's how I manage mine. Maybe it can help you.

I see the wishlist as vetted games I wish to buy, so I'm less choosy about which one to buy. That said, I rank my wishlist in order of most wanted to least wanted. In other words, I am more willing to pay full price for the first ten or so titles. However, discounts take priority over all, and I will delay purchasing for sales events. My minimum discount is 50% for all games and 60% for AAA-rated titles.

Based on my personal experience:

Banished? I'd pass. Once you've built a village that can survive there's nothing else to do. No forward/upward tiers to aspire to.

Agreed. The game combines the worse form of micro-management with brain dead AI. It's like a village full of suicidal people. Isn't that a M. Night Shyamalan film?
