Star Citizen - Chris Roberts, lots of spaceship porn, lots of promises

Hello again old meme. We missed you. :)


#6500

It’s a great meme.


#6501

I enjoy you guys bringing up old posts. Interesting to note that you can still buy SC stuff on Ebay (676 items as of this posting).


#6502

I wouldn’t sell my account, but I did have some extra ships with lifetime insurance I sold for a tidy profit.


#6503

minutes 3-6 of that video made me , almost, want to invest in Starcitizen,.


#6504

Roberts is a promotional genius; the spaceship ads I’ve seen since 2013, starting with the 300i commercial, seem more or less handcrafted to drive right to the bottom of the male lizard brain in the 21st century. But, you know… admiralackbar.wav

Maybe if more of the roles each ship were meant to fill actually existed inside the game I’d be amenable to the proposition. However, CIG seems to be too tied up with things like getting procedural fried eggs right instead of a functional economy or stable network architecture.

Something I don’t understand about those roadmaps. Why in the world are they dedicating time and effort to redoing characters and armor? Is it just that their artists have nothing better to do?


#6506

This may be hard to believe but, in Star Citizen, roadmaps, remodelling, upcoming features, trailers etc. are not steps that will one day lead to a game, they are the game.

Just watched a video on youtube, game seems to be going along well!


#6509

At about the 7-minute mark:

I don’t know who’s talking in that video, but what a disgusting human being. Ugh.

#6510

You know it’s a satirical video, right? Although I agree that the comment is a little off color.


#6511

Yeah, it’s 20 minutes of Elite Dangerous gameplay satirically taking the piss at the state of SC in comparison.


#6512

Ah, in that case, I seem to have gotten trolled. It’s still a gross comment, but slightly less gross.

-Tom


#6513

I also I didn’t know. I expected satire going in, but then thought he was being genuine. I only listened for about 2 minutes though, until he was happy, then I lost interest. Only schadenfreude for me, plz.

Plus I can’t tell Elite and Star Citizen apart, since I don’t play either one.


#6514

What a great way to start my Monday :).


#6515

Hey everyone, I just want everyone to know that there’s some folks that feel uncomfortable and excluded by all the negativity posted about the game on this thread.

As a result: Derek, please try to tone down your invective. There’s people on the board that are feeling left out by all of the critical stuff you’re posting.

C’mon, no dogpiles now! I’m sure there’s something positive we can talk about here!

So let me start:

image am I doing this right?


#6516

@scharmers, would you say that you are. . . triggered by discussions of positivity, welcoming atmospheres, and considerate forum participation?


#6517

Golly, AP, no. I welcome the out-of-the-blue sea change that will transform our curmudgeonly corner of the Internet into an all-embracing virtual paradise, where anyone can post without being challenged or – God Forbid (and I mean that in the most secular way possible, or if you aren’t, then respectfully mindful of your religious background) – experience anything that might make them feel uncomfortable and left out.

So I figure that the Star Citizen thread is a good place to start! After all, if we can manage to cheerfully and respectfully discuss this filthy fucking con without losing our probiotic lunches, well then, that’s certainly a good sign!

Have a great day, AP! And hey – have I ever told you that I love your metal thread? Well, I do! Take it easy, man!

the bass, the rock, the mic, the treble…

Are…you okay man? Did you fall on your head or some such?
