The Anniversary Special is almost here! And it brings with it…

I mean, it’s not like they have a game in which to hold events. They can’t do anything BUT have a sale.


#5633

Star Citizen fans fed up with the progress, have made a timeline of the game’s build deliveries. It’s almost as if it’s too late now, they could’ve just listened to me in the first place. Oh well. As usual, I get blamed.


#5634

Great Drought?! Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha oh come the fuck on.


#5635

Yeah, that’s wot I said.


#5636

OMG it’s so many months! What ever shall they do? No other space games have come out during that time!


#5637

Well, they’re still in a perpetual circle jerk. So they’re pretty occupied atm.


#5638

They’re probably working on some sort of VOIP Auto-Translate thing now, to mesh with the face-camera thing.

Guys. Guys. You guys. I’ve been making some videos of Star Wars Galaxies of late, and I just got this comment on one of those videos:

And I just can’t stop laughing.

So, I ventured into the subreddit due to a link upthread.

you buy a black credit card that is sold in very limited amounts on the store every now and then. It’s around 35USD if i remember correctly. That will get you emails with the time and date. However it’s not a secret and the date and place was public knowledge as it has been posted on this site multiple times. I believe everyone is welcome to show up at the meeting, they ask you to bring a friend in the emails.

concierge members (those who put more than 2000$ in the development of the game) get some special attention, like being able to fast track customer support requests, early access to sales, ordering besaid “black metal concierge business card” and sometimes being invited to a popup event with the devs. (like the public beergarden events around gamescom/citizencon, just a bit smaller)

It’s a meta-scam. Scam squared. Those who have bought into the scam can pay extra to bring a friend along to a ponzi scheme sales pitch. Bernie Madoff would be proud.

Shocking absolutely no one, the move to start selling plots of land on barren moons in Star Citizen, is afoot.

Saw this coming a mile away when they prioritized barren moons & useless land vehicles over actual game play in a
SPACE COMBAT GAME.

More here. Including a 2014 YT statement by croberts.


#5642

I’d like to see them! Link?


#5643

Here’s the latest one:

We’ll be playing again this Sunday if you’d like to join us. If so, PM and I can give you the details.

I didn’t know SW:G was even still live.


#5645

It’s got two groups emulating it!

  • SWGEmu - PreNGE as far as I know, no Jump to Lightspeed stuff
  • SWG: Legends - A fork of Emu. Trying to have JTL stuff and might have NGE stuff. I’m not 100% on this one.

We’re doing Legends because spaceships. Already enlisted in the Empire to be a TIE Fighter pilot. FOR THE EMPEROR!

Wow, nearly 1,000 people are playing right now.


#5646

The ideal version of SWG from my perspective was that sweet window after Jump to Lightspeed but before NGE.


#5647

Yep, exactly that. And before they broke creative, multi-line sign usage for houses (shops).


#5648

If they all require media, I’m hosed. I don’t even own an optical drive for a PC anymore. I suppose I should get a little USB-C DVD drive or something.


#5649

This is the only new emulated MMO I’ve played that does require original game installation media.

Star Citizen 3.0 was prematurely released to more testers (public band) last night. It is every bit the disaster that myself and others have said it is. More here:
