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

It’s silly and wholly without merit. Only the creators of the original works can claim such rights. It’s not like you’re creating an original work (e.g. painting). A screenshot is based on someone else’s original works. By this metric, you might as well copyright song by someone else, just because you created a derivative substep of it.

LOL!! Don’t worry though; it’s totally not P2W.

What I’ve realized from reading some of the SC forums is that the people who fund this thing are not normal gamers. To them, this is a dream or even an ideology they’ve signed on to. They’re ok with the game taking 7 more years or even going past their lifetime just so the dream may live. Chris has managed to create a real, true cult, completely divorced from any normal notion of a video game. This is why nothing will faze them. Anything CIG comes up with will be justifiable in order to fund the dream.

Yeah, Chris is probably deflowering virgins underneath posters of Megadeth at this point.

Where’s Janet when you really need her?


#8301

Surprised he hasn’t changed his name to include a middle initial T, that would fit neatly with the "Cult of Chris T."™


#8302

Yup. All of that. Also Sunk Cost Fallacy + Cognitive Dissonance

I made a video of the latest Crytek v CIG lawsuit. Also Fake News Alert!

#1 (12/12/2017) - original complaint

#2 (01/02/2018) - FAC = First Amended Complaint. This one contained EVERYTHING from the original complaint except they cleaned up the Ortwin issue related to his waiver. So THIS one did supersede the original complaint

#3 (08/16/2018) - SAC = Second Amended Complaint. This one was ONLY about 2.4 which the judge gave them leave to amend in her ruling on the FAC. As a result of this smaller filing, that’s why the judge had this at the TOP of her MtD ruling over 2.4 “On September 6, 2018, Defendants filed their motion to dismiss (“MTD”), now before the Court, seeking dismissal of Crytek’s claim for breach of contract based on Section 2.4 of the GLA”

I have a feeling this is probably a dumb question, but:
Could CIG not simply now purchase a second license for Squadron 42?


#8306

BREAKING NEWS. Star Citizen execs have sold shares to three shell companies in the Cayman Islands. My Twitter thread.

You could say I called it.


Sale allocation. Each share is currently worth. £0.10, and they sold 132,361 total shares.

Yeah, I’m sure everything is fine.




#8307

Chris Roberts was part of Gizmondo?


#8308

By popular request, instead of writing a blog, I made a video about the latest Star Citizen five alarm fire.

heh


#8310

They reached 210M. That’s crazy.


#8311

We should have made a JPEG of our game eventually coming to Steam and then everything would’ve been easy.


#8312

Nah man, make an animated GIF of a ship of yours flying through an asteroid field shooting at asteroids, only the asteroids are floating Steam logos.


#8313

That comment thread, it’s like I was watching a traffic accident, I couldn’t look away. Actually, it’s worse, I don’t want to look at a traffic accident, it’s none of my business and I don’t want to crash!
But this… christ, people are idiots.


#8314

Well imagine this if you will. It’s been like that for YEARS. They do this in EVERY SINGLE news article where dissent appears. This is how they got the “toxic” moniker. Seriously, those guys are insane.


#8315

The dream he is selling is powerful, and while there is better things to spend money on, in general this isn’t the worst. Less than what the US military uses in one day methinks.


#8316

Haha, you could probably sell animated gifs.

It kinds sucks that good games earn a lot less than this scam.
