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.

After the Arkham games, I always thought it would be good to see them do a co-op Ninja Turtles game. The Arkham fighting style would have been a easy fit for it I thought.

So far as his legal analysis, it seems more likely that he sends things to his team of lawyers to make sure that he isn't opening himself up for a lawsuit, than that they are giving him in depth analysis of legal documents having to do with third parties. And he never made a distinction that they were specifically providing a service to analyze the CIG/Crytek documents, just to analyze what he was posting.

This totally.

Derek is not getting them to give legal opinion on this, they are just looking at his post to make sure he cant be sued over it.

Derek opinion is just an opinion . back up by nothing more than most other ones.

Some of the things he says are good points but just as many are his stupid ramblings.

Kxmode, get past Derek.

Please watch this video from 2015 with Sandi Gardiner, who was brought to tears by the campaign of harassment that Derek unleashed on her. Look at the emotional impact his actions have on other people. I spoke to Sandi shortly after that speech about Derek and she gave me an insight into his campaign of hate against her, her family and CIG. I will always stand up to bullies like Derek. I have no interest in being respectful towards Derek Smart when his hateful actions have had a devastating personal impact on those targeted, nor those that would try to legitimise him. I absolutely will call you out on your bullshit.

HAHHAHAH Brainwashed.

Sandi Gardiner is a liar. She is married to Chris Roberts, also a liar. Their children where in the kickstarter video not due to Derek Smart, but because they put them there.


Derek Smart pointed this out, both that they where married and that their children where in the kickstarter video to show this.


Their children, at a very young age (they did not do it, one of their perents did) had imdb pages (which are open to public viewing) to which Derek pointed.


Meanwhile, Chris Roberts decided to change the fact that at the time he started the kickstarter and his in house public crowd funding (by selling internet spaceships not 'pleadges to a vision') that he was now not going to follow up on his "pledge" he made and if he had not completed the release of the project by a set time (?November 2015?) he would release the finances of the kickstarter and where the money has been spend.


No, Chris lied, and then changed the Terms Of Conditions.

Do you not want the lawsuit to show 'discovery' of where the money, which has come from backers has been spend what do they have to hide?







No Publisher wanted to work with Chris Roberts because he is a game design/project manager failure. He dose not know what he is doing.

Chris Roberts, what a clown.

Chris is a liar.

That excuse he gives is so bullshit. He just wants more money because he is so bad at game design and project management that he is wasting money and time because he does not know what he is doing in the slightest.

And if what he says is true why start selling unlimited in game money now when he can't give a reliable release date ... how is that helping those who have time/money but not enough money/time to play?

It make no sense other than he is a greedy person who wants to milk even more money from those in his cult despite them already have given him over $190 million dollars and 6 years and all he has to show is a poorly coded tech demo and several staged 'gameplay' videos.

Most scummy man in gaming.

Seeing as how the backers of this "project" are some of the dumbest tools to ever walk the face of the Earth, I won't shed a tear if they don't get a dime back.

So many gullible idiots.

"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.

Chris Roberts has failed to make what he set out to do.

He is not even close.

He said it would get stale after 2-3 years, we are now in year 6 it's more than stale, it's rotten.


Yet Chris still is happy to put his hand out and grab more money to enrich himself and his wife (oh, that's right Sandy is his wife, despite him not telling that publicly for years at the start.)


Chris Roberts is a hack and anyone who ever gave him a single cent is a fool.


Chris Roberts excels at failing. (except in this case he is only failing those who give him money, while enriching himself and his wife)

Chris Roberts Lies . Always.
