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


#8447

Here’s some positive, but odd news:

I can’t imagine how irksome it must be to get this kind of thing going, but hey, at least someone is doing something with Star Citizen.


#8448

“Of course?”


#8449

Maybe they mean of course RSI is paying him?


#8450

Well the article implies he writes off his ship purchases as a business expense :rolls eyes:


#8451

It’s shit. Wrapped in tin-foil. Shoved into a furnace.

Don’t believe? Fine. In this video, a bunch of them decided to race buggies on a barren planet. Things went sideways right from the start, and by the time the “race” was going anywhere, the “winner” was running the remaining 3km. On foot. I shit you not. Watch.


#8452

Dayum. I mean… really?


#8453

Yeah. It’s all so hilarious to me. The “game” is as dead as a door nail.


#8454

There you are mistaken. Door nails still serve a purpose. The are either ornaments or they strengthen the door.


#8455

Is that choppy frame rate my crappy internet trying to stream the video, or is it really that shit? (I think I know the answer)


#8456

You guys need to be a little more patient, they’ve only had seven years. Gotta wait to at least the 15 year mark to pass any kind of judgement.


#8457

Dude. One word. Grimoire.

20 years I think? That’s progress!


#8458

Or can be used as aides for future messiahs…

cough bad joke.


#8459

Progress!


#8460

So. Everything else is polished and ready. Now they can add on the little things that add…

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

::deep breath::

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

No I can’t. I just can’t.


#8461

So I assume they need to get Hamill et al back for more mo-cap sessions?


#8462

Every path leads to more mo-cap sessions.


#8463

The only emote you’ll need.


#8464

I just read that they passed their initial crowdfunding goal and will also be releasing a Braille version for the blind. Release date is “year end.” Stevie Wonder has been hired for cut scenes.

They already have a spaceship for sale, only $75,000 if you order this week:

#8465

I touched my computer screen and I can’t feel any spaceship.

Hmm… are you sure this whole Star Citizen thing isn’t a scam of some sort?


#8466

Could you buy a promise of a future space tugboat for $130 if it was a scam?
