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

You should watch this.

Lookit guys. You can get a 3D printed model from the game! Of a buggy (not a ship)! For 50 pounds or 65 dollars before shipping!

Even Reddit loves it!

What a bargain! I’ll buy three!

This could be amazing if:

1- These were ships
2- It was no 3D printed
3- The prize was sane. Compare it to this, for example (which is resin, very small production run, much bigger and much more complex)

I agree. If these were actual real-life spaceships that would be the best thing ever.

There is a market gap in the plastic model for spaceships that are not Star Wars. Mechas and robots we have an insane variety to choose from, but non-SW spaceships are mostly shmup ships (some of which are cool, though).

For Star Wars there’s always this (will be mine sometime).

OMG WAITING LIST

It’s in stock in several places. It’s just now the time for me, with a one year old in the house.

New to this thread, so sorry if I go over areas already covered.

Wow, I hadn’t realized their planets were going to be so detailed. Just from the start of that video where he takes off, you can see a whole massive industrial city. This is really impressive. That is incredible.

That 3d printed kit is stupendously expensive. I’m surprised it has taken them this long, tbh. This will undoubtedly be the test bed for 3d printed ships, so the price is set probably just to see what their whales will pay.

3d printed ships, plus a map, make a decent board game out of it…

Chris Roberts took time out of scamming Star Citizen backers and investors, to explain to Newsweek how he would “fix” Anthem.

I kid you not.

Meanwhile, as of the latest major patch release, Star Citizen remains a completely broken mess.

The problem was players’ expectations were so far beyond that. They imagined all this extra stuff. When they were first showing it maybe there was some stuff that, through iteration or whatever, they couldn’t get into the game. They took a huge amount of abuse, they were written off and they just put their heads down and they kept updating, delivering and making it better and better.

Oh, you!

This interview takes the cake. No clue wtf is going on with Newsweek; but my guess is that since all gaming and serious media are basically avoiding Star Citizen like the plague, this is the best they can get.

Looking good!

Article’s incomplete without a statement from Derek Smart.

The article is kind of weird. It notes a weird domestic thing that they don’t really show why it is relevant and also skip the Crytek lawsuit.

It’s Forbes, their gaming coverage is worse than Youtube commentators.

Pebble doesn’t belong in that list of failures.

Boss at work has/had several pebbles that he made different small apps for, it looked like a cool watch.

Wasn’t it killed when Fitbit bought them?
