With regards to the phenomenon of "wanting to see it fail":
For the record, I bear not one iota of ill will towards anyone who has typed a line of code, shaped a polygon, or mixed audio for this title.
What upsets me is seeing glib, arrogant, useless assholes skate by on the bent backs of genuinely competent developers. If Star Citizen achieves anything, it will be entirely due to the superhuman efforts of programmers, artists and sound engineers achieving the impossible in a hail of shit. But who will get the credit? Who will be interviewed? Whose abject fuckwittery will be retrospectively deemed visionary? It's not that I want SC to fail. I just can't stomach the prospect of it succeeding.
