The Icing on the cake here is that his pledge package, assuming it's the Connie plus all the physical extras, would likely sell for a lot more if he just traded it to someone on the star ships trading subbreddit.

r/Starcitizen_trades

LOL, the package that cost $250 at the start was the Rear Admiral with LTI. (Life time insurance) The link above is listing that package for sale and $500! And he'll probably get close to that number. Price checks I found over past week seem to say you should get $400-$500 for that package.

Derek Smart LOST money on the refund!

Meh. It's his money.

I believe I can clarify this. We refunded Mr. Smart’s package because he was using Star Citizen as a platform to gain attention as part of a campaign to promote his ‘Line of Defense’ space game

Hahah, that is exactly what it looked like to me. Some sort of snow balls chance in hell that people would try his game and abandon star citizen. Or more likely just because Star Citizen has a lot of fans if you talk about it then you get a lot of eye balls looking at your game that wouldn't otherwise.



He's not being to subtle about it either. You could turn it into a drinking game - for every embedded link and/or reference in his missives to his products, drink. I'd say drink twice for every straw man, argument from authority, or begging the question, but even with wine coolers you'd go blind.

On the one hand, I think Star Citizen is lurching towards disaster.

On the other hand, Derek Smart is an unsuccessful pseudo-developer who has no idea what he's talking about and no writing skill to speak of.

So technically I can't lose. Either way, some shithead is going down.

Sort of reminds me of the escaped Mexican drug lord Guzman, who just tweeted a threat to Donald Trump.

I think that sums up the craziness of modern society in one simple sentence.

To court? Expert witness?

Even when he's trying to be sane he's certifiable.

You don't really need Blue to figure that out. All the comments and forum posts are available all the way back to June 2001

Beamer registered in 2003. So unless you're referring to some alias we don't know of you'll have his entire history. Comments are searchable by poster and forum wide.

Beamer: "I've been here since the late 90s, just didn't register this name until the day IGN bought VE3D."

Wish the old forums were still here - it was really entertaining at the time when he got called on his expert-on-everything routine. I wasn't the one who noticed it initially, just compiled the list once that snowball started to roll down hill. He changed his board name some point after that I believe.

He's certainly gotten better (and smarter in his SME claims) in his trolling over the years since then. Although he still has to have the last word, which is always fun when you have two people that have that same OCD issue on the same thread.

He's not a lawyer. He's claimed to be about a dozen things to position himself as the subject matter expert de facto on everything until I called him out on it years ago on the old forum. Then he just stuck with his last lie.

That's all you need to know about his credibility on any subject.

Links, or you're just blowing gas your your ass.

Hah yeah, "old forum" like the one from 15 years ago? I don't think Beamer's been around that long.

Don't remember when the last forum upgrade happened, again that's a Blue question.

I don't think the old forum posts are around anymore. Maybe Blue has them up somewhere.

Thanks for all the links ASeven, great reading. Looks like there are plenty of people on the internet who are becoming the real gaming journalists now...And for some reason I'm now associating a 'Game Jam' as when a SJW is screwing a member of the gaming press.

Agreed - you've help bring the most clarity to the subject on these threads.

Fair enough.
But, again, unlike you, I don't spend every waking hour compiling an obsessive, massive list of these things.

Seriously, you just pulled those up in about 5 minutes.
Does this not seem unhealthy to you? How angry you are?

At this point your agenda is pretty obvious and I don't think I owe you any explanation, it doesn't make any difference. You stick to your own circular logic and refuse to move out of it. Just FYI, this info is easily found using google in a minute.

Also, love your passive-aggressive ad-hominem there. Weren't you taught to avoid that in any discussion in law school?

The hypocrisy of SJWs in a nice article.

Can you please stop putting up links without context and, for once, spell out your own argument.

Keep posting links.

The problem that most people have with SJWs is that they demand immediate agreement and obedience to their opinions on all three of these topics. If you agree that there is sexism, but you disagree with the scope of it, you are a sexist. If you agree that there is a larger problem with sexism in the gaming community, but you don't agree with them on how to fix it, then you are a sexist. The SJW has no allies, only sock-puppets or enemies. That's it.

I just use mine for Madden (a character weakness to be sure), and media center stuff. Are there any decent games for it? Everything looked like cookie-cutter shooter type stuff.

I look at numbers mostly on games I had no plans to buy. If I see something very high that wasn't on my radar, may as well check out why. If I see something very low, it can be entertaining to read just how incompetent the devs were.

We're on the same page here. If I see a 1/10, the review is generally worth reading just for the schadenfreude alone.

Uhm no its not. I got the Alpha, there's no update on Steam yet.

Working for me - the patch downloaded days ago, and just unlocked.
