News Comments > Star Citizen Passes $250M

9. Re: Star Citizen Passes $250M Dec 1, 2019, 14:18 El Pit
 
This is the time to add from now on financial stretch goals ONLY. Next stretch goal: $300,000,000. If reached within 12 months, everyone giving more than $1,000 will get a golden batch next to his name in game, everyone giving more than $10,000 will get a little diamond next to his name in game. Working on the golden batch and the diamond unfortunately will make the "beta" be released another two years later (at least). But you want that, right? So go and give and belieeeeeeeve, people, belieeeeeeve!

14. Re: 'The Wall' cemented Pink Floyd's fame – but destroyed the band Dec 1, 2019, 02:56 El Pit
 
Interesting article on Pink Floyd with one mistake:

Waters lost, and Gilmour and Mason went on to record three more albums under the name Pink Floyd: 1987’s “A Momentary Lapse of Reason,” 1994’s “The Division Bell” and 2014’s “The Endless River.”

It should be "Waters lost, and Gilmour and Mason AND WRIGHT went on to record..." Wright came back as a regular member when Waters left. I think this is very important because Wright did so much incredibly creative work in the studio and live (even with Gilmour solo later on for a concert) for Momentary Lapse of Reason and Division Bell. May you rest in peace, Rick, and thank you.

Do you care about using it as an untethered standalone headset at all? If you'll only use it as a wired PC headset, I think most people find the Rift S more comfortable, the visuals are better (except for the black quality, which I guess matters a lot for Elite), and it's cheaper, at least for the next few days ($349 until 12/2). The Rift S is at a disadvantage if your IPD is outside its range, but if you got to try it and didn't have problems, then that probably wasn't an issue. I don't know about glasses.

Thanks a lot, Orogogus. No, I would not stand up to play E:D, so a wired headset is perfectly fine with me. I think I'll go for the Rift S then later this weekend.

Screw Steam Index, I'd rather put the $1,000 in the bank for some operation or anything else important.

I played ED on the Oculus Rift S last week - THAT was impressive! Okay, this could win me over for VR since I love Elite: Dangerous. But $1,000? NO WAY! $400? Yeah, well... Okay. But what to get? The Rift S or the Quest with a link cable? Rift S felt good with my glasses on, will the Quest do, too? Most likely, I guess? Rift S or Quest? Guys, experts, please help me out here.

so the release date is now 2949 as that's when the adventure begins

Oh, stop it, please! Star Citizen will tell a story that takes place in 2949 - so it will have be finished LATER than 2949, of course, because how else could it tell a story that happened in 2949? THINK, MAN! THINK!!!

Know what else is coming on December 5th? Mechwarrior 5 Mercs. Guess which Ill be playing? (Assuming it's at least a half decent game)

Epic Store Exclusive for one year.

At least there is no multiple hundred $$$ paywall in front of it.. I am looking at you, Alyx and Valve!

EDIT: Also it is nice to see it leave early access!

Facebook? Facebook is fading away but still trying to pull other companies with them into the black hole into which Yahoo, CRT, and the dodo have already vanished.

Good for them. I am no fan of Dark Souls and therefore this is no game for me. I will wait (forever) for a new Jedi Knight or Tie-Fighter/X-Wing game.

That's exactly what the Epic Game Store is built on. Agile all the way baby. Beatnik

Yeah, who doesn't remember the Epic kickstarter for their website followed by extreme feature creep (like electronic shopping karts, wishlists, and stuff). How much money did you give to them, RedEye9? $1,000?

If you stream Counterstrike or Team Fortress and say something about "Free Half-Life!", you will get banned for life. Wink

Blizzard: "Don't you have cell phones?" /Diablo Immortal
Valve: "Don't you have VR?" /Half-Life 1.5 (Alyx)

Old school fans waiting for a new Diablo/Half-Life game: "Don't you still have at least some connection left to your player base?"

I am hoping for a nice Christmas/Winter Sale... over at Epic. Now is the time to buy more games there.

Anyone know if Zen 3 will still support the old motherboards? I'm going to guess no?

Edit: Nm, it won't.

Really? Last time AMD talked about Zen 3, they said that it would. Hm...

Valve screws over the fans that made it big when they bought Half-Life in droves. People that would have bought another Half-Life game. But will now be given the finger by making the next Half-Life game a VR exclusive.

Middlefinger

There. Right there. I will never defend Steam again. Ever. And have just bought two more games over at Epic that I actually wanted to wait for to be released on Steam. Here is my reaction, Valve, and I used my wallet for it.
