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

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.

#8574

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.

#8575

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

Pebble doesn’t belong in that list of failures.

#8577

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?

#8578

Pebble folded and ended all support and voided warranties. They failed to deliver a ton of pre-sold watches (although they did eventually refund).

There’s better examples of failures but it wasn’t much of a success.

#8579

Like… New Coke!

#8580

At least New Coke was something that the company could and did fix. It cost them a bundle at the time but sure didn’t hurt them in the long run.

#8581

Pebble would be like if Star Citizen finished 1.0 and maybe 1.1 and then blew up trying to do an ambitious 2.0. To me it seems different to successfully launch but then fail to continue. People did lose out on that last product, but it wasn’t snake oil.

How much space does latest Star Citizen build take? I am thinking about taking it for a spin to see how it runs on my ryzen/2080Ti combo, but only have 25GB left free on my SSD.

#8583

Full installation size looks to be around 50GB.

Thanks, gonna have to uninstall Exodus.
