Derek Smart brigade playing evil shenanigans.

Yep...truly stupid people with nothing better to do than circulate fake news and imbecilic hate. Whew... These disgruntled customers are so amusing...KS customers still think, no matter how many times they are told the opposite, that when they contribute to KS programs they are actually buying *nothing at all.* There's no "pre-order" involved. There are no guarantees, no contracts--putting money in a KS is merely seeding a company and individuals you like/trust with seed money in the hopes they are able to accomplish what they started. With a KS, there are no promises made to anyone. IMO, only fund KS with people with solid reputations who have a lot to lose if their KS fails. I've funded a KS or two--and not been burned by following those recommendations. Quite the contrary, I have been more than pleased by the result.

OTOH, if you want to invest your money with an individual or company you've never heard of, that no one else has heard of, either, then never invest more than you can afford to lose. SC is making refunds and is still very much a going concern, accordingly. When KS's fail, however, usually the principal involved escapes with the money--free and clear and 100% legal, that's true.

Why a few of these SC KS people are so full of angst and hate for SC beats me. SC is a game so ambitious that no publisher anywhere would attempt to underwrite it--because it takes far too long for a publisher's comfort. If and when the game is finished, and if and when it meets the goals it is trying to reach, it is definitely going to be one-of-a-kind, and we can thank not only the developers for it, but also the KS investors who stayed the course. Well, that's my opinion, only, of course...;)

But this is not kickstarter, that's a myth.

This is RSI (Roberts Space Industries) selling pre order DLC to an unfinished game.

I understand how people think this is some kind of kickstarter but its not and Chris Roberts is happy to make that as muddy as possible to make this seem like some good will thing.

It's not, he broke his pledge he made. End of Story, He is a scummy cunt.

Why at 2 hours and 14 minutes and 49 seconds did a performer from Cirque Du Soleil "A Nightmare before Christmas in Black and White" walk across the stage and give Chris a drink?

I really wish they would drop support for this dead game. They need to get back on the horse and make a game that isn't a lie.

Full disclosure: I never donated any money to the project, although I wanted to and have followed it diligently waiting for a time where it looked complete enough to do so. The 'idea' of the game totally gripped me from the start. I remember playing my favorite game of all time as a teenager, TIE Fighter.... thinking to myself "Man this would be EPIC if once you docked with a space station it just transformed into 'Dark Forces'?!".
That was my dream too.

Anyone whoever believed in this while knowing that Chris Roberts was behind it was/is a fool.

He has no idea what he is doing apart from making a pitch to get money.

Chris Roberts lies, always has, always will.

He is a hack with no original ideas.

Star Citizen is lies and dumb people have bought into it for a total over $157 million - all of them idiots.

Why would anyone ever put up money for a Chris Roberts idea? ...... there is a reason no publishers, big or small, would; because he can't deliver.

On top of that, he has his would be actor wife as his VP of marketing, lol, no wonder they did not want it known they where married.

Lies all the way.

You know what is sad? Some people defend it just because if they did not it could mean Derek Smart was right.

While Derek Smart maybe right, he was also dumb enough to have put money into the project to start with (fully knowing who Chris Roberts was.)

I dunno, I figure if you stream and someone uses that info against you, that's fair game and not cheating. The streamer is the one actually broadcasting their position and movements, why should people not use that info? Just one of the hazards of streaming.

Totally agree.

If you are doing something out side the game i.e. Streaming or using some form of voice chat, you are free to have both the benefits and downsides to that action.

I've never been streamed sniped, you know why?


As for people being banned over this, with what I would think is very little if any prof, that's just shit.

As people have said, if you must stream your games, why not have a delay at lest (can still get stream sniped I know).

This was UNCONFIRMED ACCUSATIONS ...... bad PR for Battlegrounds (and the Streamer) imho.

Foundry 42 and its parent company Cloud Imperium Games UK Ltd. have elected to partner with Coutts, a highly regarded, very selective, and specialized UK banking institution, .....

That is lies, go read the loan documents and it clearly says this is not a partnership and that neither party should say it is.

More RSI lies.

Here a hint - it has more than graphics, it has gameplay too!

It sounds like you have no interest in it anyway so why are you so worked up about it?

So your hang up is about the way you felt they have treated PC gamers - not about the quality of the game? More power to you if that's how you feel about that.

As a gamer, I'll rate the games I'm interested about on the gameplay and entertainment I can/have with it.

Also if they are so greedy, why have all the GTA-Online updates been free?

GTA V was 40% off all week which still put it at about €35 cuz R* are greedy cunts. Sad to see it's a price where many idiot gamers will bite.
It's no surprise that publishers treat gamers like shit if gamers reward being treated like shit with millions of sales.

What do you even mean buy that?

If people where regretting buy that game it would not have sold 80 million copies so far.

The vast bulk of people are more than happy to have paid good money for what most people feel is a very good game.

It's like you just have a problem with .... everything.

Could it be you that is the problem?

So have you played it, or not?

Hey guys, guess who wrote this -
“The more funds we can raise in the pre-launch phase, the more we can invest in additional content (more ships, characters etc.) and perhaps more importantly we can apply greater number of resources to the various tasks to ensure we deliver the full functionality sooner rather than later.”
- written in September 2013

Or this from October 2012 -
"We’re already one year in - another two years puts us at 3 total which is ideal. Any more and things would begin to get stale."

Any guesses who it was?

What about their installer/patcher software .... still patching the whole 30 gigs at a time while taking out your whole internet.

That's amateur (well even amateurs can do better) and it has been that way for years and years .. wtf .. indie devs do better software.

That's how much Chris Roberts respects his backers. Waste their bandwidth and their money cos the funds they have put in are now being wasted on CIG having to pay for all the bandwidth too.

Development Hell? Not really fair to Satan, I'm sure he runs that place way better than Chris runs CIG

How bad are the faces during the love making parts of the game, cos during my real life love making I've seen all kind of faces that I thought where strange (but never really the ME:A dead eye stare - maybe some drunking version but there was still life there!)

Where have all our heroes gone? Roberts, Molyneaux, Garriott, Carmack

I think about the only ones left are Sid Meir and Will Wright. I'll have to dig out my copy of PC Gamer's 'Game Gods' issue from the 90's and see who else was on there...like Jon Romero. I guess we can thank the heavens above we still have Derek Smart, eh? Wacko

=-Rigs-=

The Houser Brother are still going strong.

It's just the Chris Roberts crowd that don't know what they are doing.

I'm wondering what other games that engine might be good for. It's a pretty unique implementation for a game with unique requirements.

Off hand, there could be an RTS game that lets players settle colonies in different systems and engage in diplomacy with aliens with dialog, force, or a hybrid of both, and also the ability to created factions with allies. The gameplay would be a third person (macro view for empire building) or first person (micro view for exploration and communications). A combination of 4X, Homeworld, and Star Citizen with a bit of Mass Effect thrown in.

That's the kind of dreaming/thinking that got you to give Chris Roberts hundreds, if not a thousand dollars to start with.

The engine is shit, they have fucked it up with no idea what they are really doing.

All this is now is a project to keep Chris and his wife employed earning way more money that they are worth.

They are deceptive cunts, using other people to enrich themselves with no care to those who give/gave them the money.

This article is about how bad the netcode for (at lest) Star Marine is. I said years ago when people here where saying that CIG would make the netcode better that they where full of shit. They have said again and again that they are 'refactoring' the netcode only for it to get worst.

Chris Roberts is a scummy asshole who is using other peoples money to pretending to be a big shot movie director/game designer.

Fools where taken in from day one, some have final seen the truth and got refunds.

This whole project is bulit on lies.

LOL at how shit there download clinet is still after all this time.

Still no delta patching (early 2000 tech) so it's a total re download each time.

And while it is doing that it tank your whole internet, not even allowing you to do most other task.

Then it often does not finish the download with just a few megs to go.

What a bunch of clowns.
