On the plus side, for $60 you can buy a $50 star citizen gift voucher..
I'm waiting for the $500 voucher for $600.

Blue, you are more than fair. Please don't change a thing.

BUT, If you were to change anything I wish you would sell bluesnews mousepads, t-shirts and 20 oz coffee cups w/your branding...
Keep up the good work and gaming coverage.
Ditto.

A fool and his money are soon parted, as the proverb goes. These are not necessarily "rich" people though, as illustrated by the survey that was done some months back (and also posted here): https://www.instant.ly/report/54a985dde4b0cea5d72c8c2a

I realize it's not scientific/complete by any means...
You forgot to mention that water is wet.

One of the people in those stats has an income of under $20k, but is providing $20k of support. Uh huh. I have no doubt there are some people spending way more money than they should not only on this game but also on drugs, alcohol, sex, and lots of other things. That spreadsheet is worthless.

My personal favorite
Anyone who buys $900 DLC is retarded.

What would that make the people who bought the $2,500 ships?

If you think it is unfair to poke fun at people selling $900 virtual spaceships for a game that does not yet exist. You may want to double check your grip on reality.

Seeing as Porsche has previously been sued about this car and lost (at least the article reads that way to me), I give her a reasonable chance to get some cash out of them.

Just like many free to play games like Game of War and Candy Crush, which make 100s of millions of dollars, this game is being floated by a couple thousand whales with OCD and lots of disposable income. The difference is that at least GoW and CC have actual completed games to play. Once these whales lose faith in CIG, the project is F'd. But hey, we'll always have Arena Commander.

Okay, this is off-topic, but I have to say -- the best thing about this, is they have a commercial which basically shows this. The pressing the "help" key, then the "more help" key, then the "OMG" key. Absolutely hilarious -- down load our app and press keys to send us money!

As far as SC... more of the same. Move along...

Wow, nice picking in our pick 'em league -- 13 of 14 by Radman and Pigeon. I got the "upset" pick on Philly, but missed on the Browns, Ravens and Chargers. I can live with that.

I believe there was a case of a home owner both being ticketed for improper watering (or some such) and for letting their lawn brown.

Apparently, this is an easy problem to solve. The medicine patent expired decades ago, but distribution laws prevent anyone else from making it?
Interesting, I was wondering what the deal was since the drug had been around for decades. I'd like to hear the full explanation of what allows them to have exclusivity. I'd love for whatever that is to be changed.
