Purely as an off-topic item and a significant news bulletin, I wanted to share that on March 15, 2017, Russiaís Ministry of Justice filed a claim with the Russian Supreme Court to label Jehovahís Witnesses in Russia an extremist organization.

If their Supreme Court upholds this claim, the Witnessesí national headquarters near St. Petersburg will be shut down. Subsequently, some 400 registered Local Religious Organizations would be liquidated, outlawing the services of over 2,300 congregations of Jehovahís Witnesses in Russia. The branch property, as well as places of worship used by Witnesses throughout the country, could be seized by the State. Additionally, only Jehovahís Witnesses would become subject to criminal prosecution for merely carrying out their worship activities. The Supreme Court is expected to rule on the claim on April 5th.

Labeling the Witnesses as an extremist organization is off the scale ironic considering the Russian authorities continue to terrorize this small group of Christians; who remain, for all intents and purposes, model citizens in Russia.

Please ignore ME1 and ME2 as examples of what happens when you put forth the effort as we were under different management then. Thank you.

EA owned them for ME2.

October 11, 2007 - BioWare became a unit of EA
Early 2008 - Development of Mass Effect 2 started

Matter of months (3,4?). Pretty sure BioWare hadn't been entrenched in the EA ethos long enough to have any negative impact on ME2. They were a virgin acquisition. You know games take years to develop, and many begin as ideas long before mergers and acquisitions happen. EA didn't cancel ME2 in the way Disney did for 1313 after acquiring the LucasX properties.

For those keeping count, latest 7 months funding:


August 2016: $4,200,000.00
September 2016: $2,100,000.00
October 2016: $5,000,000.00
November 2016: $7,750,000.00
December 2016: $3,000,000.00
January 2017: $1,750,000.00
February 2017: $1,900,000.00

Unfortunately, that's normal. There's usually a large haul in October and November and then it tapers off going into the new year. The real test will be the same months this year. That will tell more about people's patience than anything else. I know Chris knows this. The gravy train is eventually going to derail if this game isn't shipped soon.

Subscription for a game that is still in development... Smash

And... "Is Star Citizen "Free to play"? A subscription game? To play Star Citizen you need only to buy the initial game. There will never be a monthly charge for usage. Some in-game items may be available as microtransactions, but we will NEVER sell anything that canít be acquired through honest (and fun!) gameplay." Funny how commitments go out the window when someone is looking to buy a $20K Cappuccino machine! Greedy

Look on the bright side; no matter how the actual game turns out, this whole experience will end up as a PhD level topic for some psychologist's case study. "Why did so many people continue to give money for no discernable return, for so long?"

Pretty sure the level of effort, time, money and WORDS Derek Smart could legitimately claim that Ph.D.! Seriously, to his credit, he made a ton of noise; most of which is accurate. Yes, he did embellish, but for most of it was solid.

I guess I haven't been keeping close tabs on Star Citizen... 5 years already? And when did they start a "pay for a monthly subscription to a game that doesn't yet exist" service?

About a couple weeks after the Kickstarter campaign ended; in January... 2013.

"We are kicking off the Year Five of the Star Citizen development subscriber program!"

That's $1,200 for Imperator; $600 for Centurion.

That's some balls CIG has. They shouldn't remind people, the least of which are the subscribers, how much money they've wasted on this over priced, overly hyped, far-from-complete, tech demo.

The dude is actually stating let's pretend we are DONATING to Blizzard instead? Can you please get Blizzards ballz out your mouth. This is such a fanboi type of excuse for Blizzard just taking advantage of it's ignorant, loyal fan base that will buy a turd if Blizzard sold it.

This also explains why Star Citizen still continues to exist... FIVE YEARS LATER.

This has to be one of the worse justification comments on Blizz's forum.

"For everyone complaining, let's think of it this way: If you like Starcraft 2 and want to see the development team continue to patch and update it so many years after its release (something that doesn't happen with most video games), you can donate $2.49. As a special thank you for your donation and dedication to SC, they will give you a FREE skin. Does that sound better?"

This response sums up why Blizzard can keep getting away with this stuff. Their customer base is truly brain dead.

-10 years ago... Remember when this content was called DLC and it cost a few buck?

-20 years ago... Remember when this content was in the game locked behind a challenging puzzle?

-30 years ago... Remember when this content was in the game and it was available after completing a mission?

-40 years ago... Remember when Frank would chip in $5 to cover the pizza you just order so you and your friends and complete your intense pen and paper session?

@CJ_Parker - In difference to your comment, I would like to point out they successfully shipped their two crowdfunded projects: Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenera. The remaining two, The Bard's Tale IV and Wasteland 3, are still in development. I'm no fan of crowdfunding, but you should at least get your facts straight. Come on, Mr. Parker, I know you can do it!

Well, yes. People have stated that compared to the single player issues, multiplayer is pretty solid. It appears a more skilled team put it together.
