For the record, since 2015, I have WARNED that this is where things would be headed once it became clear that they could NEVER ship the games promised.
Yet all of the content shown so far is far in excess of what was originally promised. You're just jealous that it's better than the utter SHITE that you put out.

Let them fight. Popcorn

By the way, mathematically, 98% isn't half-baked.

Neither is a steak dinner upon which a bird has shat. Doesn't make me want to eat it just because it's fully cooked.

98% isn't that. 98% is a medium rare steak dinner without the bottle of A1 steak sauce.

Disturbing details about Blue Whale's "gameplay."

"In the Blue Whale game or Blue Whale Challenge, a group of administrators or a certain curator gives a participant a task to complete daily — for a period of 50 days — the final resulting in committing suicide. The participants are expected to share photos of the challenges/tasks completed by them. Each task also needs to be photographed or videotaped, so the administrators have proof of completion and authenticity, including the final suicide."

"The curator selects teens through on personal chat and are asked repeatedly if they are sure they want to begin the game and are warned that the only way they win is by dying. If the player persists, then the challenges begin. Once the game begins and if the participant is hesitant, the curators 'threaten' to kill these kids' loved ones by making them believe they have details of their friends and families and force them into continuing the game. Then, as the kids go further, these curators obtain pictures and secrets which they can use to their benefit."

OMG!

Nah. Pac-Man.

Agree! Pac-man came up in many of the "most popular video games" lists I reviewed. Though I will admit they were kind of old, so they may not take into account Fortnite's current popularity.

Don't you mean Fortnite? I'm pretty sure Fortnite destroyed PUBG.

If you likes spam building and your about 12 years old...then Fortnite is for you sir...

I'm not talking about gameplay versus gameplay. I'm talking about the number of people playing or watching Fortnite versus PUBG. Case in point, on Twitch there are 251,757 viewers for FN versus 17,161 viewers for PUBG (at the time of this writing). Why would I mean anything other than viewership and player numbers?

I swear... the comprehension of individuals on this site is staggeringly bad at times.

"What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient... highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain, it's almost impossible to eradicate."

Star Citizen is an idea, and for millions now something they are willing to invest money in. You call them "gullible idiots." So I ask you, have you ever given money to an idea that later turned out to be a foolish decision? The question is rhetorical. In other words, something to think about before you cast aspersions on others.

Day One, Chris Roberts asking you for money ……..

You are an idiot for ever thinking that Chris Roberts was ever capably of making good on those words.

Chris Roberts Lies.

Heaps of evidence before this kickstarter to show what was going to happen.

Hindsight is 20/20. I do hope you understand what that means because I'm not going to explain how utterly wrong your assessment is.

Throw a Hail Mary pass to get the game to like 98% completion and then finish up the remaining 2% post-launch with patches and bug fixes in a DLC.

Annnd that's the problem of today's game development : halfbaked games costing the full price ....gezz to say that's okay is.......

2% is normal. Do you expect to be able to defeat the main villain of a WOW expansion at launch? No. Of course not. That happens several patches and updates later. So it's either that or let Chris continue on his current trajectory. I'm pretty sure most would choose the Hail Mary 98% delivery.

By the way, mathematically, 98% isn't half-baked.

I feel like the crowdfunding aspect of Star Citizen would make for a great Black Mirror episode. In Black Mirror's signature bleak tales of technology gone awry, amplify the story to national or global propositions.

First, in case you missed it yesterday, Chris and Sandi Roberts, for the second time in two weeks, again shamelessly used their very young kids to help promote their on-going scam.

I don't believe Chris and Sandi are intentionally trying to scam people. But I do think that Chris is creating lag on the project that is preventing it from reaching a state where game delivery can happen in a year or so. There's a fine line between perfection and insanity. I think the best move for Chris now is to do what CD Projekt Red did and up staff and contractors to a 1,000 folks (they did that on Witcher 3). Throw a Hail Mary pass to get the game to like 98% completion and then finish up the remaining 2% post-launch with patches and bug fixes in a DLC. Also, I think they should open a studio in Warsaw and start hiring a ton of people there. It costs significantly less to hire a Polish developer than in Germany, the UK, the US and so forth.

It's not something a "normal" person would brag about.

This thread is called "Star Citizen Refund Refusals." My comment isn't about the $930 that I spent on Star Citizen. It's about getting a full refund. The second link to Polygon should have made that point clear. And I'm not bragging about either. IOW, a fundamental lack of comprehension on your part related to my post.

I kind of assumed it was common knowledge on this site, but yes. I'm also one of the few to get it all back thanks to Sandi Gardiner. So, yay me!

The interview with the Polygon reporter was interesting.

The X-Games are sports, the E-Sports are games...get over it.

This is why we have more than two genders. The definition of words are arbitrary. Who cares what the dictionary defines something as!
