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


#5731

In just about every say save graphics and flight modeling. VO has better missions, a more realistic economy and actual…gameplay.


#5732

Not to put too fine a point on it, but flying around shooting at other spaceships once was considered ‘gameplay’ in its own right.


#5733

Star Raiders was so awesome on the Atari 800… on the 2600, not so much :)


#5734

I called it. They have started selling land. Yes, I’m serious.


#5735

Hmm… where have I heard of that before…

Oh yes, Greed Monger.


#5736

Lol yeah, and they’re not even really selling any land… it’s a device that will allow players to claim land once the game/feature launches! :P


#5737

Holy shit. Can I buy some land and put a monorail on it?


#5738

I’m glad I held off on the DERPSPACE early access… Star Citizen is so superior


#5739

Oh Lord. The dude in the video with the beard and the baseball hat at 30:25 is really annoying.

Buying land might seem kind of amazing if you couldn’t already do this in Ascent: The Space Game.

Oh, and IIRC, you can build planetary bases in Evochron…so…yeah…


#5741

You can purchase a picture of a construction spaceship which comes with a bullet point that it will include a land based fabrication vehicle which comes with a throw away line from a developer in a video that they plan on supporting all kinds of planetary travel which comes with a reddit post about how it would be awesome if there were hyperloop style tubes in the universe which comes with an upvoted comment from someone with questionable spelling ability who says that their Org is going to focus on monorail construction.

#5743

I don’t think so… that’s more of a Shelbyville idea.


#5744

Wait, Mr. Lanley! I’ll pay!


#5745

$50 for 16 square kilometers of virtual real estate. So that 500km diameter moon can be all yours for the low, low price of 2.5 million USD.


#5746

Speaking of which, can I plant a lemon tree?


#5747

No, but you can enjoy all the Country Time ™ you want!


#5748

Except the moon isn’t that big. At all.


#5749

CAN I START A PEPPERIDGE FARM?!?! Pleeeaasseeee? I’ve always wanted to farm pepperidges.

Somewhere, the Pepperidge Farms guys, the Bartles & James guys, and Orville Reddenbacher are all sitting on a big porch having a grand old time.
