I'm interested in seeing how this Citizen Con goes... if it has nothing to show I think that will be the nail in the coffin.
Every single presentation and demo has been quite promising so far. It is 100% guaranteed that they have put together an awesome looking (scripted?) gameplay demo for Squadron 42 and maybe some more mulicrew and planetside/PU alpha stuff for Citizencon. No doubt about it.
People will go "ooohhh" and "aaaaahhhh" and they will be "blown away" by how fucking awesome everything looks.
The problem with this crowdfunding project is that nothing has been released so far that even closely resembles anything shown in the myriad of flashy trailers.
That's why I don't really give a fuck what they are going to show at CitizenCon.
Even if they show "gameplay" then they need to actually film over someone's shoulder so I can see whether mouse movements and keyboard inputs correspond with what is happening on screen to eliminate any doubt of massive scripting and pre-recorded "gameplay".
At this point all that really counts is DELIVERY of PLAYABLE content. They can shove their flashy trailers and demos up their collective asses. Seriously. I've totally had it with their stupid "reveals" and Christ Roberts live stage shows.
I don't even want to know how many man hours were wasted on those demos and presentations... man hours that would have been much better spent working on the game.
And no, dear white knight cultist apologists, even if *some* of the demo material makes it into the final game you can rest assured that a ton of throwaway, make-believe, band-aid work goes into these demos for marketing purposes... just ask any random dev who is forced by their publisher to make E3 or Gamescom demos. And for them that's just once or twice a year while Christ Roberts forces his people to make flashy shit for *at least* PAX East, E3, Gamescom, CitizenCon and PAX AU so five+ shows per year.
