News Comments > Star Citizen Schedule, Videos, Sale
46. Re: Star Citizen Schedule, Videos, Sale Nov 19, 2016, 20:46 CJ_Parker
 
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 we’re 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?

News Comments > Star Citizen Schedule, Videos, Sale
14. Re: Star Citizen Schedule, Videos, Sale Nov 19, 2016, 13:00 CJ_Parker
 
That schedule crap is a response to a growing part of the fanbase becoming ever more impatient. The hardcore fantard cultists are still defending everything to the death, of course, but even the regular core fans were now -finally- getting pretty fucking annoyed with the lack of progress this year.
See here for a recent thread (which was closed, of course, since you can not have criticism in Roberts land).

The CitizenCon no-show of Squadron 42 was quite a downer for many. Many also found it disappointing that Star Marine still hasn't come out. Remember: it was originally promised for an early 2015 release and in August 2015 it was supposedly only "weeks away, not months" according to the devs.
It is now supposedly getting closer for real but as we can see from the livestream it's apparently also way less tactical than originally promised. The promise was Rainbow Six/ArmA tactical depth and slow gameplay. The reality is it's CoD/BF/Crysis.
It has also become very obvious that 3.0, which many of the cultist sheeple got hyped up for real bad, is not going to happen this year.

As a result of all of these failures to deliver, even the dumbest of the dumb cows are now finally starting to see through the bait and switch scheme, where there is this huge gaping discrepancy between all the flashy trailers'n'demos and the actual delivery.

CIG are simply trying to buy time with the schedule transparency. It will have to remain to be seen whether they will really update it regularly or if it is a one trick pony for maximizing money intake from the impending anniversary sale next week.

Going by their incredibly shitty track record, it is probably the latter. They can not even keep their ships stats page updated on a current basis in spite of the fact that they have a so called "director of spaceships" on the team and dozens of people whose only job it is to coordinate the exchange of ships assets and info between the various studios.

The result: Abysmally outdated ship stats cuz it's apparently too hard for a team of 370 people to maintain a single central Excel sheet of stats.

Why should the schedule crap end up being different? It's obviously just an attempt to restore a little faith right before the big sale next week. The only thing that is transparent about it is the cheapness of the move.

Grow up. It is called democracy. It has worked better than any place else in the world for over 200 years.

Oh has it now? What about the civil war, the holocaust of the native population, the slavery, the racial segregation, the great depression?
Are there shittier places in the world? Yes. But saying it has worked "better than any place else in the world" is a HUGE stretch.
But I'm not surprised since the "world" for most Americans still ends at the Atlantic (E), Pacific (W), Canada (N) and Mexico (S).

Yeppers. They can go fuck themselves. Same as with the lame-ass Deus Ex Human Revolution "Director's Cut". I'm not touching either franchise until I can have those games (i.e. their redux or DC editions) for pennies on sale. If that.

Yep, Phil, the MS Store is definitely about to become a true Steam killer. Your company's incredible commitment to PC gaming is overwhelming. Any day now. Any day. It is sooo exciting to be a part of it and to be allowed to be a witness of this monumental, historical shift in time. Absolutely epic.

How sad from nvidia... this suck with no OPT out option!

Nevermind for now, I sill use last year drivers.


Yeah it's so incredibly sad I'm going to cry myself to sleep tonight. Oh how my life is destroyed now....

But never-mind this only applies to GeForce Experience and is not there if you install just drivers on their own.

I only have the latest pure drivers + PhysX installed and still had that shit on my PC so this is not true.
The article is also crap because that shit can not just have been in the "latest" drivers. The date on my PC says it was added on Oct 12. The latest drivers are dated Oct 28.
Fuck all of this inaccurate reporting FUD shit.

This quarter got a big boost from Myanmarians buying their games back.

Who are we supposed to hate again, is it steam, ea or origin?

lol well said, you need to add blizzard, ubisoft, and umm I'm sure im missing, loads of people around here hate them too

-edit- OH I KNOW I KNOW!! CLOUD IMPERIUM GAMES!!!! HAHAHA I WIN!!!@!!!1111

Whoa there sparky, let's wait for them to actually release a game before adding them to such lists.

No need to wait. Those CIG fucks already have a criminal record of lies and fraud that easily defeats 30 years of EA. Gogeddum!!!11

Welp. People who look like E.T. or Admiral Ackbar are luckily still a minority. But maybe if y'all keep propagating then future games will support your species more frequently so get to it!

Some kids in my neighborhood have a fresh squeezed lemonade stand, but since I have an imaginary beef with Minute-Maid I refuse to purchase any citrus juice products.

Black Mesa (Crowbar Collective) is not affiliated with Valve. But keep up the boycott, that will show em.

They are affiliated with Valve in so far as buying the game would equal expressing an interest in the HL franchise and also because Valve would get a 30% cut if I bought their overpriced half-assed piece of shit mod.
So, yeah, I will in fact keep boycotting them and hope they go out of business and fuck off.

I don't really give a shit about this. Uninstalled the store immediately after upgrading and will never use it.
But this definitely sounds like typical MS customer friendliness.

Not getting a dime out of me until they finish Xen, then I will be happy to pay full price.

This bullshit has gone on way too long for an unfinished re-creation, it's been over 4 years since the "mod release" (September 2012). They also have the gaul to charge money without regular updates on Xen status (which I would expect for paying for early access.), and work on / release other things besides Xen.

Finish the fucking game before you charge. Or at least post regular update status for "early access". Not gonna spend money on something that should have been completed long ago on the hope I get the rest of the game in 10 years.

+1

But I will go even further than that. No money for *anything* HL-related from me until Gabe shows some respect to the fans and at least posts an update on the future of the franchise or releases episode 3 (yes, episode 3... I don't even expect HL3 until we get the final episode or a reasonable update explaining why there will be no episode 3). Until then Valve, Gabe and the HL franchise can go and fuck themselves hard.

So is this an entirely separate installation? In which case save games won't carry over?

Who cares?! I can't imagine anyone not starting a reroll with this release ^^
When I couldn't sleep 2 nights ago, I fantasized about what class/race to roll this time.

Dude, what??? You fantasize about rolling classes and races in Skyrim when you can't sleep? Instead of, you know, how Salma Hayek climbs on top of you and...

Sheesh. No wonder you couldn't sleep...

AH-HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHA!

I'll let you guys know how awesome it is!


I'm sure it will be, but it's Rockstar's loss ultimatively.

Is it?

They're the ones with the full knowledge of how much it would take to build, test, market and launch the game for the PC at the same time as consoles, as well as with a strong understanding of how much money they'd make for having done that.

This is just a small group of PC gamers going "well, they won't get my $60."

I'd wager it's more the loss of people who only game on one platform than anything else.

Well, according to SteamSpy GTA V has about 5 million owners (IMHO idiots but I guess that isn't really the point here, eh? ). Anyway, the game has never been on sale for less than €40 (probably the same in $, right?) so that is approximately $200 million right there.

There might be lots of cheaper copies from key stores but also lots of copies that people bought at full price so it should balance out near an average sales price of around $40 probably.

And it's "just" Steam, which probably makes up for 80%+ of the sales but it's not unreasonable to assume that there may be another 1 million PC copies outside of Steam so maybe we're more at $250 million revenue for the PC or even higher.

Well, good for Rockstar if they can so easily ignore a quarter billion bucks. Their loss. Those PC-despising assholes can go right ahead and fuck themselves with a rusty morning star.
