"and how in Star Wars, anyone can become a hero"

That is provided they are female...

Chewbecky? Hanna Solo? Lucia Skywalker? Landa Calrissian?

I can't help but laugh every time I see Star Citizen on blues. The people here are an overwhelming minority with regards to their views on this game. Like seriously, this is the Westboro Baptist Church of the gaming community.

Perfect summation of Blues vitriol towards this game is the homeless guy here: https://youtu.be/phxRZXd6r9E?t=12

Hahaha

I guess this your alpha 0.03a version of a post. A finished and mature version of this will be released after the official release of the "gone gold" news for Star Citizen, so this should give you a few decades to grow up and understand why and how you have fallen for the Sacred Citizen Cult.

Hint: once the Supreme Leader asks you to leave the US for some South American exile... RUN!!! Of course, you won't run but will drink the KoolAid instead.

Can somebody please translate what "an enthusiastic, empowered Community" really means? Thank you in advance.
It means everyone is all smiles and everything is good nothing to see here, keep buying virtual goods. We want more money. It's about waving that carrot in the form of a roadmap in front of backers who may have these creeping doubts that might result in them no longer paying for virtual goods we are selling.

So we will get Star Citizen Bridge Commander soon? And CIG will start selling... bridges?

Serious question: by the time all is said and done, would it have been cheaper to simply colonize space in real life?

when this game is done, it will cost in the ballpark of one pre-spacex medium class rocket, launch and launch services only (no payload cost)

and if EA or activision tried to make this game, it'd cost more and take longer because they wouldn't be as dedicated. CIG is a purpose-built organization

it's CR's fault for setting unrealistic expectations with unrealistic schedules all this time. but elon musk does the same thing. yes they're bad at scheduling, and yes they're doing stuff that's never been done before

Musk brought a couple of rockets up into space, releasing its payloads, and even landing back on earth again. Sounds a bit beyond eternal alpha to me.

Another serious question: in the end, will this game prove "too big to fail" and get a few billion in gov't bailouts to finish the content?

Chris Roberts: Seventeen? [Ben nods] Okay, you guys got yourselves a JPG of a ship. We'll be ready when it's done. We just need to modify the ship. After we have built it. Which we haven't yet.
Kenobi: Luke, these are not the businessmen we are looking for.
Kenobi waves his hand: Roberts, you will forget that you have met us.

FTFY, sir!

The teaser trailer for Star Wars - Episode VIII: The Last Jedi has just been released.

https://youtu.be/zB4I68XVPzQ

It is alright. After the entertaining but pretty flat The Force Awakens I hope we will get a bit more story and depth this time.

DAMN!!!! Michael Ballhaus, one of the greatest cinematographers ever, has died at age 81. He worked with the best directors (Coppola, Scorsese, Redford, and and and) and gave us brilliant photography for movies like The Departed, Gangs of New York, Bram Stoker's Dracula, GoodFellas, and many many more movies. This is a terrible loss for modern cinema and a very sad day for Hollywood and all movie fans.

So the pirates won't have it as soon as it has been released - this might help sell some more copies to those who don't want to wait.

Good luck with the move, Blue. Best idea would be to ask friends who have moved recently about their experiences and then call one of the contractors they have been happy/lucky with.

The situation with the neighbor's dogs has to be the most stressful event I've found myself in. It's raining and cold over here in California, and I didn't know how the dogs were doing or if they had shelter, food, or what. The worse is the owner left the property two weeks ago (he's a renter). He abandoned his dogs. I have great news to report! The Chief of Police emailed me tonight:

"Animal Services responded to check on the dogs today. Some food was left by the Animal Services Officer and the dogs appeared to be in acceptable health at that time. A note was left requesting contact from the owner and we’ve received no response. The plan now is that the dogs will be taken into protective custody tomorrow by our Animal Services staff."

It's been a very long six months but I'm relieved for the dogs, and I'll finally be able to get peace and quiet. Win-Win for us both!

I hope it is a GOOD animal shelter.

Who cares, they were using chemical weapons and people were demanding action.

Who is "they"? Assad? The Russians? ISIS? Any proof WHO did use the chems? Was it a chemical bomb or an improvised factory for chemical weapons hit by a conventional bomb?

See - this is why all of this is just stupid. Like the war on Iraq - no proof, just action. Just do it, think later. Stupid stupid stupid. Just to get rid of Assad because all the countries in Northern Africa and the Orient have turned into democratic states after the dictators were gone. Right? RIGHT?! No, not right. Libya without Gaddafi - anarchy and terrorism. Egypt without Mubarak - almost a radical islamic state, now under control of Egypt's military. Iraq - well, you know what happened after GWB bombed Saddam away. But does the western world learn? No, of course not. Kill the dictators, and then leave the countries to turn into chaos and anarchy. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

]The fact that even one key got revoked should tell you what kind of business G2A is running.

It's a flea market for stolen keys. No more, no less.

I see... One key revoked = all keys are stolen

I think I can guess who you voted for!
