Are you referring to Kotick? He's been the CEO of Activision since 1991. His "weakened" company is now making annual revenues of over $8 billion. Kotick is responsible for a near 100% revenue increase over the last ten years. Going back all the way to 2005, we are talking about a 1000% increase (10 fold increase from $780 million to over $8 billion). Like it or not, but the company has been immensely successful under Kotick's long tenure.

Star Citizen is a pretty epic technological experience. I have a very high end machine and it would be a disservice to not play around with star citizen on it. It’s a long term thing, like DCS and il2.

So....any honest reviews of this game? Like, seriously this game is like the posterchild of the Sony Playstations. It's supposed to be the be all end all game, all i see is a beat em up game.
Lol I don't get it either! I keep watching gameplay vids while heavily biased toward wanting to like what I see but I don't somehow. To me I can hardly explain why not though. It's like the game has a reverse X-factor and I just won't like it even though it checks all my boxes.
Gameplay is solid, boss fights are great in typical God of War fashion. That said, the story (and immersion) is what the game is about and what makes it great. If story isn't your thing and you just want another FPS, this ain't your thing(and you would probably want to stay away from first party PlayStation games in general)

Want to bet? I'll front the cash, and if I do it, you have to pay me back for parts and labor. I'll even go cheap and price my labor at $50/hr.

Can you pick a Yugo as the police car.
Why are you putting twin turbos on a 5L V8 for only 455HP? You can get that much normally aspirated.
Twin turbos are for closer to 1200-1500 HP. Hell, you can get that with a good Roots style supercharger with a lot less complexity and plumbing.
