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


#8465

I touched my computer screen and I can’t feel any spaceship.

Hmm… are you sure this whole Star Citizen thing isn’t a scam of some sort?


#8466

Could you buy a promise of a future space tugboat for $130 if it was a scam?


#8467

The whole Star Citizen fiasco has ended with a thud. For my part, once they released the financials (item 3/3 which I asked them for back in 2015), I figured that my work was done. All I’m waiting for now is the end game so that I can finish my fucking book.

Welcome back, Derek. Nice to have you here. :)


#8469

Yeah, I had nothing new to rage about. :)


#8470

Man, when this thread goes dark… I get bored. Yes, I’m serious.


#8471

Has something new happened or is this a thread bump?


#8472

I wonder if they have more than 1 space-door at their HQ?


#8473

Star Citizen has ended? So they are actually shutting down the company or something?


#8474

Nothing unusual as far as their website and/or e-mail blasts go. The next quarterly patch has supposedly been released to the first wave of testers as of today (or yesterday, depending on your zone). That event is on time per their current “schedule.”


#8475

Uh, I believe if that had happened, you wouldn’t need to be asking the question :)


#8476

I guess I misread Derek’s post.


#8477

Well, over a the Kool-Aid factory, hubris, apathy, and regret aside, a lot of things are slowly sinking in. Precisely as I’d predicted (when I said the game Chris scoped could never - ever - be built)


#8478

This will never launch. The only question is how big will the fireball be when it crashes?


#8479

And at what framerate the fireball renders.


#8480

And how much is a .jpeg of the fireball?


#8481

lol, that made me actually laugh out loud.


#8482

How much do you have?


#8483

I suspect they will launch something just to say they did.


#8484

This thread is fun too.
