News Comments > Star Citizen Gameplay Trailer
17. Re: Star Citizen Gameplay Trailer Dec 17, 2016, 16:52 CJ_Parker
In case anyone's wondering what happened to the promised Squadron 42 presentation for CitizenCon (back in October) that was hyped all year long and according to Christ Roberts missed being ready for prime time by the width of a pubic hair and that was supposed to be shown really, really very super-soon after CitizenCon but then was never heard from again until today, well, here's the bullshit excuse from the holiday newsletter...

In anticipation of today's Live Stream, I did want to address one thing that I have been seeing speculation on in the forums: whether or not today's Live Stream will feature the Squadron 42 Vertical Slice.

After we made the decision before CitizenCon that the Squadron 42 vertical slice wasnít ready to be shown publically, we spent some time on reviewing how far off we were and what we wanted to achieve in order to be comfortable showing a full chapter of S42 gameplay. After all the effort we expended for CitizenCon, we didnít want to spend additional developer time polishing intermediate solutions if it wasnít going towards the final product. A slick demo isnít that helpful if it pushes back the finished game, so we decided that the priority should be completing full systems over getting the vertical slice into a showable state.

TL;DR After over five years (going by Roberts' own counting) they still do not have a single mission from Squadron 42 in a presentable state even though the FULL game (not just an episode) was originally supposed to be delivered in late 2014.

Anyone here who is predicting a beta in a year or a couple of years needs to get their head checked. At this rate, we are, without even a hint of exaggeration, a good decade away from the final game (full PU, all ships and gameplay systems, 100 star systems etc.).

It was too bad they let the Republic Commando game die on the vine.

Nope. Glad they never made more clone wars garbage. No need to be reminded how shitty the PT was.

Extremely disappointing info on the physical CEs. Seems like they won't ship in time to be in people's hands on release day just like they fucked up the WL2 CE shipments which were delayed by about a decade or two.
Apparently 4+ years is not enough for a company like inXile to arrange for timely production and shipping of physical goods. Another kick in the nuts in addition to first excluding CE pledges from early access. What a bunch of complete dickwads.
I'm sooo done crowdfunding (especially backing fraudulent losers like inXile or CIG) it's not even funny. Fuck those guys.

The last time I tried to do anything with windows store it wanted me to convert my local account into a MS account (i.e. when you login to your computer you're also logging in to Microsoft), and then after a mandatory install of one-drive it started randomly backing shit up to TEH CLOUD. I have a free copy of the new Gears of War game out there that I will never play because I don't want to go through all that shit again.

You know, no offense, but it sounds like when a child comes up to something and is like, 'oh! what does this button do?!'. You're a gamer, at least I assume that because you're here, and being a gamer means, by default, you need to do a few things. One, is actually know what you're getting into and how to get out of it if it doesn't work right. Two, is to RTFM. Seriously, you won't play the new GoW because you can't be bothered to read how to setup you MS login correctly and then make sure that that piece of shit One-Drive (sounds like a millennial Nickel-Back, ugh!) doesn't start uploading your priced possession of Natalie Portman porn (it's ok, man, we all have some, you're among friends here! ) to the Net-version of a thundercloud. (Which, btw, is about as good at holding data securely as the real version!)

C'mon, man-up, grab that manual and install that game! Don't let it beat you down! Tell MS they can suck it and play all night while they get stuck having to use Bing to look at fake nudes of Natalie Portman...


A quick google search and I see some suggestions I didn't find the last time I was trying to figure this out, and then firing up the xbox app I immediately see the option to skip the local to MS login that I some how managed to miss all the other times. Coincidentally I'll be having some roasted crow on a bed of arugula drizzled with a raspberry vinaigrette for dinner tonight.

Dude. Just uninstall all the fucking retard apps that MS put on our PCs without our consent and be done with it.
I have immediately uninstalled everything including the Shitbox app and the Store after upgrading to Win 10 and never looked back.
Well, except once when those MS fuckers reinstalled -again without consent of course- all the apps with the buggy as fuck Anniversary Update but their shit flew right off my system again faster than Nutella could say "but".

Oh fuck no please nooooooooooo......

The last few times these fuckers "enhanced" gaming we got the Shitbox, the closure of beloved PC exclusive game devs like Ensemble/Aces, exclusivity deals for Shitbox and the glorious Windows 10 + UWP + DirectX 12.

I'd much prefer if they no longer enhance fuck with gaming.

Maybe Chris Roberts and Star Citizen will bail them out. Inquisitive

... Popcorn

Last time they were in deep shit, there was actually a rumor about a "mysterious benefactor" bailing them out. Many people believed that person to be CR. So this might be a repeat if he does in fact rescue them (again).

This game looks like an incredible experience I'll nope out of after 45 minutes. Life is currently full of enough anxiety, without the need for supplemental, pant-shitting, terror.

Too bad...I'd love to play it.

When you grow up and become an adult, you will learn the difference between fiction and reality. Just a few more years. Hang in there, li'l buddy...

Looks like it's going to be a proper piece of shit. Why did they have to turn ME into a fucking cartoon? This looks like SWTOR meets Planetside 2. Ridiculous. Shitty. Fuck off material.
And fuck Frostshite with its artificial glossy look&feel. It's not visceral, you're not part of the action, you're like a war reporter watching shit through a very clean, high gloss, filtered camera lens. It's a complete garbage engine.
I'm sure the (either mentally or physically) preteens will enjoy it mucho though. "Aaaaawwwww mommy I wanna play as Krooooogggaaaaannnn... they look soooooooo funneeeeeehhhh!!!!!".

If you'd like a look at what this is going to look like, check out this video:

I can't wait to play it...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH, I was expecting a MechWarrior running the Unreal 5 6 or whatever the latest engine is... Not expecting that :/

I'm glad it's not some dumbed down twitch garbage that would only be a mere shadow of the MechWarrior glory days anyway. TBS is the right way to go to do the depth of the whole setting proper justice. This should turn into an awesome game going by what they have shown so far.

Man I really hate the new Steam front page for the store. Before, there was a list format with tabs for sales, new releases and popular. It was really easy to quickly glance at everything. Now Everything is giant logo buttons that are a pain in the ass to look at, and I have to go to sub-pages to get to full lists of anything.

Uuuhh instead of tabs, you now have a nav menu on the left where you can easily find the exact same shit as with your "Specials", "Upcoming", Popular", "New Releases" tabs. Zero difference basically.

What I don't get, however, is how they managed to revamp the interface but did not fix the retarded on-click pull-down menus for games with a lot of DLC like FSX. That shit is really annoying because every time you click on an entry in the long list of DLCs, when you go back, the menu will be closed again so you have to reopen the menu every time, remember which link you clicked, scroll back down again... it's shitty as fuck is what it is. Like made by a web designer in 1998 with three days of JScript experience under his fat, dumb belt.

Eeeewwww... try to imagine the smell of a fat nerd who hasn't showered in 12 years. I wonder how many of those there are? How many people have lost their lives to this game in the past 12 years? It's kind of a scary thought that there are some real zombies out there who haven't partaken in life outside of WoW for over a decade.

It's hard to imagine someone such as yourself exists but here we are.

The way he talks, you'd think he spent All 12 years in trade chat...he certainly fits in there.

I was out walking my dog on the trail behind my house and I ran into this guy walking his dog. Started talking. He's a developer who works at CIG here in Austin. Says he's working on Star Citizen. I just smiled and said I was familiar with the company. What do you say when you meet a stranger who owes you money?

What do you mean "say"? You just go straight for the throat, dude.

It would help if some of y'all would actually read the damn letter instead of producing uneducated drivel. The letter specifically says...

So for Star Citizen Alpha 2.6 weíre going to share our internal schedule and its breakouts on a weekly basis.

Very simple, no rocket surgery. The schedule they are sharing is solely about PU alpha version 2.6, i.e. it is not about the entire project, not about Squadron 42 and not about when Christ Roberts is getting his hair dyed again or when Sandi Gardiner is going to get a boob job. Capisce?

Thanks for mentioning that... but who cares about the PTU 2.6 somewhen in December though when SQ42 was supposed to release this month and a final EP1 was supposed to be showcased at citizencon, but wasn't? And yes, the letter clearly talks about the PTU, but the schedule report pages does talk about Squadron 42... only to then quickly not ever mention it again ;p

I agree with you that it is kind of sad (but also expected and telling) how S42 is getting swept under the rug.

But for clarification: They never promised that S42 would be out this month. They only ever mentioned "2016" in that teaser trailer from last year but no specific month. At CitizenCon in October it was confirmed that it won't be out this year.

Also, what they originally wanted to show at CitizenCon was not an entire episode but just a single mission (although one episode comprises approximately two missions so it's at least half an episode, yeah).
They made it sound as if the mission demo just barely did not make it and that it would be shown "soon" but -as expected- more than a month has passed since then with no sign of that single mission demo. So far, it wasn't part of the anniversary streams either. Maybe x-mas?

It's definitely really shitty of them to not even provide a status update but there is an anniversary sale going on so they have much better things to do right now...
