Valve has taken the right approach on this, if they wanted to censor games they'd also have to take down GTA. And they wouldn't want to have to do that.

I'm sorry, but I've watched the trailer and the game makes me sick.
I know that if I don't like it I don't need to play it but putting stuff like that out there is like poisoning minds.
Maybe that is the point?? Maybe its supposed to make you sick, the same way a shocking book or movie is supposed to shock you, leave an impact, and some food for thought. There is no way to tell until the game hits the shelves and we learn some more about the story (or the lack of one).

What's so bad about CBC?
They cost $1 billion per year of taxpayer money
They are a propaganda machine for the left (Liberals/NDP)
They don't supply anything that is unavailable in the free market

Yeah I was just thinking about that the other day. Apart from a few notable exceptions, most developers really do have a hard time rolling with the (mostly justified) punches that their fans keep throwing at them.
Nothing from the book, music or film industry even comes close.
Okay, I'll take the last point first, you obviously don't know many musicians or authors. Knowing quite a few of both and a few at the larger international scale I can tell you that you are wrong plenty hate their fans a whole hell of a lot (though the dynamic is quite different).
Now to your first point, "justified" punches? How is any of what went down in this latest train wreck justified? The rape and death threats are out there for the public to see, this is not stuff any of them are making up. Doxing is quite public too. Hell those Lizard twats did a straight up terrorist act (and yes calling in a fake bomb threat is classified as an act of terror). How is any of this justifiable on the part of fans? If it was simple things like "hey you know this ending kind of sucked" people like the Doctors over at Bioware would probably still be running the company but it was "OH MY GOD YOU ARE WRONG HERE IS YOUR HOME PHONE NUMBER ON THE INTERNET I HOPE SOME ONE GOES TO THE HOME ADDRESS I JUST POSTED AND RAPES AND MURDERS YOUR CHILDREN". Honestly, I've been playing video games since Pong and right now I've never been more ashamed of people in my social group.

I'm not too worried about Star Citizen (at least at this phase) they have had some communication problems but the technology behind the game so far is solid enough for an Alpha.
Where have you been? They overdid it on the physics and it lags everyone in multiplayer. They've been trying to fix it for weeks and still haven't been able to.
The technology behind the game can't carry it where they want them to go. Just wait and see at the other countless problems they're going to have with CryEngine.

I was able to be "captivated" by Eve online(even if it sucked) and Freelancer, but couldn't keep interested in the X games or Evochron mercenary. I'm not entirely sure what the magical recipe is.
Star Citizen will have remappable controls pretty soon, if it's not there already. I'm not questioning myself about SC because the guy worked on Freelancer and has continually said that it would be similar.

You really aren't helping me like it by using EVE online... Most boring game ever... At least eve has a ton of things to do and accomplish. I've played a lot of freeform sandboxes that I loved and some of then that I found boring. No need for a main quest line, but there has to be a reason to play... I'm definitely interested, but I'm scared it won't hold my attention or there won't be a game in there.

Today is Odin's Day. Tomorrow is Thor's Day.
Anyway, I can't tell from the article, is this some chick who was worthy, or did Thor get turned into a chick, like Loki was with a big, but in-continuity magical event, or a (gag) complete reboot?

Thor isn't a religious character, he's a mythological one. Unless you know people still worshiping Norse mythology as religion. I can't even find any genuine ones online.

Why does Marvel feel it's ok for them to fuck with other peoples religions so long as they're not mainstream? Hey, why not make Jesus or Mohammed women and see how that works out for you.

Is Archie really that bad in sales (probably, who the hell cares about archie?) that they need to do some weird gay save publicity stunt? This just screams of trying too hard.

Also perhaps unwilling to fund it sufficiently? When it takes you five years to get to your first alpha that suggests they didn't have enough people working on it.

The blame must also lay with White Wolf management for allowing the merger to begin with. Many said it was a bad idea at the time and that turns out to be the correct assessment.

But there's this one guy over at Massively who I think I've seen cut and paste a few times in to threads here. He sock-puppets, he has posts prepared and ready to paste (literally across three or four message boards) hitting the exact same points every time.

Just tell us what's up and if/when you're unsure just give us "when it's done" but don't issue concrete dates if you can't keep them.

I think the griping is a form of latent jealousy...;) Software is almost never on time, due to a great number of events both foreseen and otherwise. But it's a cynical world, and real rip-offs happen every day, so the people who feel this way are not without excuse. Now that the Star Citizen objectives are being met, though, it will be the brave cynic, indeed, who continues onward...;)
(And please, can we stop calling it "hate"? That is *so-o-o-ooo* hackneyed and worn. "Skepticism, doubt, mistrust, criticism," etc., are all much better words than "hate," which is really almost never the case from anyone, it seems to me. For instance, people who don't like Apple products don't hate them, they just don't like them as a matter of personal preference when compared to other products, etc.)
