I get solid 60+ fps at 1080, everything up fairly high (textures ultra) with a 6gb 1060. Horse controls can be frustrating, I got stuck on one mission and had to restart it as it bugged out, but it's okay so far. Hoping it gets better because right now it feels small, tight, and very controlled.

Both the boys have it and it is DOA on both computers. The games starts and then crashes. Both systems are intel I5 based with one having a 1070 and the other a 1660 video card, nothing out of the ordinary. Needless to say I have two irrated kids. Both systems upgraded to the new Nvidia drivers and it made no difference. Looks like the last time I pay for one of their games!!!

If your boys are old enough to play Red Dead Redemption 2 then they should be paying for their own games.

Oh, you say they are still kids??

Ok, don't worry about ratings.

Just looked up Will Wright's net worth and it says 20 mil. I'd have imagined it would be a lot more than that. A lot more. Like at least another zero on that.


What would his "net worth" mean?

Are you say that since he has not got heaps of money out of this he has been ripped off?

20 mil is heaps of money. It's just not huge fucking heaps of money. Which as the creator of a 5 billion dollar IP that he would have made a lot more off it. Fucking douchebag Sweeny is a billionaire. I'd say Will Wright deserves that a lot more.

That's cool, I agree, but maybe he does not care that much about money (Once you don't have to worry about a roof over your head and food to eat)

He may have just been doing it because in enjoyed making something that he had control over. (plus he was still well off)

Like It would be nice to see he had way way more than he needed and was rewarded financial for his efforts but that may not have been what he cares about.

Notch got over a Billion for Minecraft but I don't think that was what he was thinking about has he typed out his first lines of code.

Yet you somehow like it. That ridiculous game has become a bad religion.

Yep, it scratches an ArmA in space type gameplay for me.


Please, Chris Roberts and Star Citizen are the most exploitative project in gaming by a long shot.


For that missile truck in that video - CIG would have you pay them the equivalent to what you would pay for a copy of Red Dead Redemption 2 AND a copy of Cyberpunk 2077 --- $120 and that does not include the game* Star Citizen either.



*'Game' is a badly made pre-alpha tech demo that is only good for taking screen shots.

So that is Chris view on NMS and Anthem - gamers had too high an expectations after paying ~$60 for the games.

So Chris, if people have paid hundreds and hundreds of dollars for DLC for an unreleased game, can they have high expectations that they will receive value for that money? What should their expectations be?


Chris, why are you selling stuff that you are unsure of if you can make it work flawlessly? Are you just going to say that if people are not happy with you product, that they should not have wanted so much?

Guys, you are all missing the point what is important is that more people give Chris Roberts money.

Also, I don't know if RTX will help to make Sandi Gardiner a Hollywood actresses or not and that is an important part of Star Citizen/SQ42

Chris Roberts does not need to disappear to South American hookers, he is married to Sandi "Mae Demming" Gardiner.

You know, that women who was about during the kickstarter, but was not 'maybe' Chris Roberts wife despite Derek Smart saying she was.

No deception at all ... this is all normal.

ITS A SCAM.

But it is crowdfunded. So that is the proper term to use.

I disagree.

It was crowdfunded up to around $6-8 million dollars, then more "pledge" items where introduced. At that point, they where pre-selling stuff.

Hey Blue, I don't really think it should be called 'crowdfunded' due to the fact that the bulk - $200 million plus - is actually from people buying internet spaceships and other DLC, some of which people are really only pre-ordering concepts of still to be made DLC for and unfinished game that is still in pre-alpha.

Then Chris Roberts takes this money and wastes it.

Chris Roberts is a very scummy liar.

Duke Nukem Forever was in development for 15 years.

GTA V was scheduled to come out on PS3/Xbox and PC in 2012. It took a full extra year for just the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to come out. Boy were they buggy! The PC version finally came in 2015. We even got the PS4 and Xbox One versions in 2014. This was a development group of 1000 people.

CIG just reached 400 employees. They had 300 last year.
Are they late on SQ42? Yes. Are they late on Star Citizen? Yes.
Are they giving us much more than they originally scoped for? Yes.
Originally we were going to get a Wing Commander 2 type deal and a Freelancer multiplayer. What we are getting is a Wing Commander III and what Chris imagined Freelancer 2 would be like.

They better get SQ42 out next year! As for Star Citizen, I'm already having more fun playing it than many so called finished games.

FROM THE PAST

I was at work, so I did not grab the latest version, but it hasn't really changed. Yes, dogfighting is late and I wanted to honestly show that, so I mentioned they missed that original target and left the original target date to show that. They have not shifted any of their other targets, so I saw no reason not to publish the old version as is.

The early previews were made to help get corporate backing to supplement the full cost of making the game. They have now made enough money crowd funding to not need the corporate backing at all.

Chris Roberts has stated that a lot of the preview assets were being developed for the final Squadron 42 game. Specifically the carrier was being designed to eventually turn into the final product. Only the rooms that were finished were shown in the preview, there was still a lot of work to do. With the upgrades to the Star Citizen ships, the carrier likely has seen some tweaking. Also all footage was fully working in game. Some of the assets were purchased to fill in what they hadn't developed yet. I think the enemy was purchased assets just to have something. The preview was an early version of what will be the final game showing assets and tech that was already working.

As for development of Squadron 42, yes, putting the story in the game engine was just started in December. Writing of the story started before that, and so did the asset creation. The asset creation started about 2 years ago and was the first thing they started working on. Are they modifying the story, yes, I think 2 of the stretch goals extended the scope, but while getting the story in game is a lot of work, it is only part of a larger piece of work that they are well into. Why haven't we seen more? According to their weekly show, they want something to be a surprise, and that is Squadron 42. They have said a few times last year that they were in active development of assets for Squadron 42.

Yes, there will be a full release of Squadron 42. The early backers will get the story in beta episodes as each segment is mostly polished, but after the last episode they will do a final coat of polish which will be the full release. The final beta episode they are targeting for December 2014, final release January/February 2015. Chris admitted that December might be a little too ambitious for all the episodes to be done, but that is their current target. I think they were looking at September/Early October for the first episode.

This information is spread all over the place, but The Hull Truth and Wingman's Hanger are really good resources that pull a lot of this information together.

Poster #53 is totally swimming in the cool-aid, he's splashing it all about the place!

Both those names; The Hull Truth and Wingman's Hanger, make me think cult (less so Wingman's Hanger) or TV evanglist. You should look with a lot of skepticsism at anything with Truth in it's title.
