Star Citizen Becomes Two Games Next Month

Part of the Roberts Space Industries Roundup we mentioned last night includes word that as of February 14th, Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will become two separate packages (thanks Cutter). At that time Squadron 42 will become a standalone game or an optional add on for Star Citizen, a plan that's apparently old news to backers of the space combat game(s). Here's word:
At the December livestream, we announced that Squadron 42 and Star Citizen will be split into two separate packages in the near future. To update on this: the split will occur on February 14th. Squadron 42 will be available as either a stand alone game or an optional addon for Star Citizen rather than be included by default. If you want to lock in both games for the lowest possible price, consider pledging before this deadline. You can learn more about Squadron 42, our thrilling single-player adventure, here.

Bluesnews comments remain toxic and synnical. Mr. Smart is still getting paid by CIG to post negative press and you non-backing, self entitled suckers are falling for it. This is the best marketing tactic I've seen in years.

You stated here that Derek Smart's blog and Twitter account would close. That was 3 1/2 months ago, what happened?

You ended that post by saying "Think I'm lieing? I am not your internet mommy so dig up the information yourself." Ironically, I found this post by digging up information myself as to why you'd post such an apparently ridiculous statement as this and gee, now I do think you're "lieing".

I guess for Zandog "lieing" is the act of making stuff up and then passing it off as a forecast of things to come in the same vein that "truthiness" is truth simply because it feels true.

lieing = truthiness forecasting
lying = telling untruths

Starcraft 2 broke into 3 games. Don't know if you heard, but they are now bankrupt. And those 3 games were exactly the same. Only thing different were the cinematics, but I hear from their cinematic team they play starcraft all day. Not like they were too busy.

Excuse me? I WAS a backer to the tune of $930! And my doubts about the project and Christ Roberts happened LONG BEFORE Derek's blog appeared. We are free thinkers here on BluesNews because on the cult-like Star Citizen forum and subreddit free thinking gets you banned or marginalized by zealots.

Yeah, you clearly raise the level in here.

By the way, when are those predictions happening?



On the prediction scorecard, the tally is currently at after one round:

Derek Smart: 1
Zandog: 0

What does round 2 have in store for us? The crowd is sitting on their hands in anticipation! On a side note, we have a conspiracy theory developing, hopefully Zandog can pull out some supporting evidence or he may just move to -1!

Oh, that's rich. Derek. I had started writing a rather long list of things that would prove show you to be the blowhard all of us know you to be and why telling me to stop talking shit is one of the, if not the most, hypocritical things that you've ever said in the last ten minutes but then I came to my senses. Never will you ever consider something that didn't come from your own mind. You live in a fantasy world that would make Steven King jealous! Like my ex-wife, what you believe to be the truth IS, no matter the facts. You'll twist them enough to make a case. The thing is, you may think it's *ahem* 'genius', while the rest of us just roll our eyes and go on with our day. You go ahead and waste your time. I'm not wasting mine, especially on you. Good day, sir.

That all being said, I have to say that when I see someone saying they were 'promised' this or 'they have to do that'...um, no. You seem to forget that Kickstarter is not a store. Promises mean nothing for Kickstarted projects.
=-Rigs-=

No. That's pure and utter bollocks. And the Federal govt, as I've written in my blogs, has been quite clear about that - specifically.

When you make a promise to deliver something via crowd-funding, you ARE expected to deliver it. That's precisely why the FTC has taken action against several companies, as have some State attorneys.

Stop spreading bullshit because that's EXACTLY how a LOT of people ended up putting money in this shit and never getting it back.

They have walked back MANY promises (including promises made for even Squadron 42!), have thus far FAILED to deliver the game(s) they promised by Nov 2014. With the latest fiasco being the nerfing of Star Marine.

There is NO evidence that they will EVER ship either Star Citizen or Squadron 42 as promised.

The splitting into two games is yet another cash grab because they are fast running out of money, losing key talent and if they survive 2016, it will be a miracle of epic proportions.

Anyone know what melting/unmalting is and the tokens for it?

Sort of, yes.

You can melt pledge packages by refunding them for store credit and then you can use the store credit to buy something else. You will in some cases, especially with older packages, lose some privileges, however.

So lots of tards went and melted packages every time a new ship was announced. They changed their pledges like their underwear and now they are having regrets about e.g. not having LTI (lifetime insurance) anymore.

That's why CIG introduced unmelting now, i.e. you can look at a list of all of your past pledges and repurchase the package for the original conditions, i.e. for example with LTI. What I am not sure about is whether you also get the original price because many packages were a few bucks cheaper in 2012/2013 than they are now.
To repurchase an old pledge you can, however, NOT use store credit so you got to whip out your wallet and buy with real cash EXCEPT if you have an unmelt token (every account got ONE of these AFAIK). So you have a one-time chance to correct a pledge for "free" (store credit from melting) and then after that it's $$$ time.

TL;DR melt/unmelt is a system to further milk impatient and indecisive ADHD retards who jump on every new ship hype bandwagon
Thanks. That helps, since now I know I don't need it. I'll keep my original LTI on Aurora LX that I got for $5. (Plus the original KS pledge). I'll be doing good if I get a game out of what I spent, since I spent less than $50 on it. If I don't, it's not like I spent thousands on it.
