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

Anyone interested in a paying $800 for a space yacht, uh, I mean to experience the “Gatsby” lifestyle? As an aside, the world building for the Star Citizen universe doesn’t seem very inspired. :(

Are people buying that ship hoping (in vain, no doubt) to see slightly undressed ladies? The “rekindle old flames” copy and the prominent image of the bachelor pad bed are a little on the nose.

That is a really dumb trailer for really dumb people, but it illustrates an important truism: opera makes anything better.

So they didn’t even do a clever name reference? Just straight up Gatsby

I’m surprised they haven’t put the jpgs in loot boxes yet.

I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that “opera singer in a luxurious ship in orbit” somewhere. And I think that somewhere even had Gary Oldman, too!

So yeah, this and the Gatsby thing just go to show that CIG/RSI isn’t exactly very “creative” in anything but new ways to milk whales and handwave missed milestones.

That’s going to be the title of my self-published self-help book. Look for it at retailers nationwide, very soon!

Heh, at the end when it said “It’s not a ship . . .” the conclusion that first came to mind was " . . . it’s a JPEG".

And the idea of people quietly watching a performance while the ship is being attacked by pirates (even if unsuccessfully) is absurd.

This is pathetic beyond belief. CIG can no longer entice whales with fighter ships, which is what you’re supposed to use in this f#!@g game, if it ever becomes one. So they now have to appeal to their sense of luxury, as if they’re Apple. There really has never been anything as demented as this game in the entire history of gaming, AFAIK.

My coverage of the latest legal shenanigans

Basically, the minute this ruling happens, if Crytek prevails, as has happened in similar cases they could immediately file an injunction preventing the sales of both games.

Well, they don’t actually sell them, so they are fine…

A “prison gameplay loop”? I wonder if that’s prophetic…

Not 100% sure opera can make passing a kidney stone better.

Turn up the volume to cover your screaming.

To keep this thread up with the latest developments, CIG has unveiled that a big chunk of the company has been occupied working on what we all wanted…

caves.
Be honest, didn’t you want caves in your space game?

Finally, the right space game made just for me.

You can’t spell ‘space’ without ‘spelunking’. No. Wait…

I mean, it’s already in CryEngine so it’s something that they might be able to kind of get working.

But RSI is using Lumberyard, not CryEngine. Haven’t you been paying attention?
