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

I saw @Derek_Smart_3000AD tweet this earlier - I don’t get it, what’s it all about?


#3483

They had an Anniversary streaming event yesterday (or the day before) to showcase stuff. And it wouldn’t be a SC stream without a certain degree of awkwardness.

Anyway, that death stare was the most impressive moment in the whole thing. Seriously, Sandy Gardiner is really skilled at that. More than I imagined. ;)


#3484

What happened that caused such a look?


#3485

#3486

Turning off the green screen background ruined it for me.


#3487

Wow, she needs to be cast in a Westworld role, stat!

So, other than that moment, presubablmbly no showing of the SQ42 content that only just barely missed Citizencon? Anything on the release of 2.7? What about 3.0, which was supposed to be 2016…?

Did they start another ship sale? I think there was another really exensove one due for launch on this livestream, wasn’t there?


#3488

Technically you can see for yourself on their supposed internal scheduling reports.


#3489

No SQ42 at all. Nothing about 2.7, though 2.6 has a tentative release date set in late December. Nothing about 3.0, but certainly not this year. Yes, there was another ship sale. And I don’t really know.


#3490

2.7 changed into 3.0, and will almost certainly not be coming out this year. 2.6 is the next update, and currently has an internal release date of December 8th.


#3491

So they have one more scheduled livestream opportunity left in 2016 to demonstrate anything of SQ42. I suspect we will see nothing in that case, since it missed Citizencon and the Anniversary livestream.


#3492

So how far behind are they on the promises for SQ42 timewise?


#3493

Depends on who you ask. Some will say they’re way behind, a few years at least. Some will say that CIG is never late, nor is it early, but that it will release things precisely when they are meant to.

I haven’t backed the game, but if you ask me, all I’ll say is that when they started selling/building SC, we were in a major “drought” of space games - and now space games are everywhere (and have been for a couple years).


#3494

This is correct, and it’s been pretty awesome.


#3495

They’re really filling a void, you might say.


#3496

You speak with a lot of gravity on this subject. I’m proud to be in your orbit.


#3497

And it’s not just that there is a large expanse of space games. Some are really quite stellar.


#3498

I feel like I can thrust your opinion. (sorry).


#3499

Bunch of space cadets in this thread.


#3500

I think you guys need to comet down a little.

Excessive punnery Mars this conversation.
