Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

Why? Don't tell me you haven't overtaken a spaceship in FTL just in your spacesuit before?

Anyone else have flashes of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

Anyway, they could rename it to Star Hilarity and release it as is.  People enjoy "construction" games and would have loads of fun making video clips like this.  You might say it's not what the backers backed - but that spaceship has sailed.  You might say that $167M/6yrs was too expensive for this - but that's money under the bridge.

When life give you lemons - or, CRoberts, if you are a lemon - make lemonade!

Holy crap - did they kidnap his sister?  Threaten to expose his porn stash? Did he get whiplash from this 180 turn?

Whatever it is he's going on about now, I don't care. He was a Shitizen through and through. Just because he got a refund (partial) and is now critical of the project, doesn't change that. In fact, he's a perfect example of what we're going to be dealing with before long when this whole thing finally crashes (it's coming sooner than they think).

I had only the audio on. When I heard him going on I switched to the video and moved to the end. There were some captions all of a sudden so I went back a little. On sound only, he probably would have had me.

I've seen a lot of people on twitch/youtube playing the game in offline mode, just to get some extra FPS.
Which involved using CheatEngine, AAAND breaking the terms of service, AAAAND bypasses the point of you "stress testing" the servers. People don't even care  :3:

People are willing to give up the ONLINE aspect of this MM fcking O  just to play it.

That's hilarious for me. Apparently this was happening since the last major patch?

This proves my own point about making a "test build" that lacks basic fucking functionality:
So from what I'm seeing the narrative has changed some what :
-It's no longer an alpha, it's now a PRE-alpha. Is that a thing? We're now going backwards?
-The built was released so you could test it, get it cause PTU ?  Ok, but why did they release a build intended for larger-scope testing with so many show-stopper issues?
Yeah, remember those? That "must-fix" list till it exits evocati?   Some of those are show-stoppers. As in : "I can't test the MobiGlass's functionality since opening the MobiGlass crashes my game".
That's a showstopper. You can't TEST because a bug is preventing you from even running the rest of your testing procedure.
When you release a product for testing, you have to get rid of the bugs that prevent testing to begin with.
If I give you a toaster to test, to see how much it burns the bread, and my toaster explodes the second you plug it in, burning the bread is the least of my concern.

People will just ignore the testing and do their own thing, or worse, submit thousand of "it doesn't fucking work" bug reports..... :) :) :)

Another thing I just recently noticed now that I can see the game in "cinematic" thirty frames, is that the planets look like shit. They did NOT exceed No Man's Sky in any way ,shape or form. There's still extremely visible pop-in as you descend, there 's a ton of glitchiness when the rendering switches from low-poly to high-poly. Fuck, at least No Man's Sky tried to "stream" objects in from blurry outlines. So what's the point of planet landing? It's an obvious break from their "fidelity" style.

Honestly, this patch  looks dead on arrival. Twitch is averaging about 200 viewers. On youtube it's either the major shills or the 4k 30 FPS cinematic guy (the x guy, I can't be assed to look up his name). Considering this is the JESUS patch ,  it's not looking good. Guess we'll see when they release to PU.

EDIT: Also , NOBODY gives a fuck about FailureToReport. The cultists rejected him long time ago . I watched his twitch stream of PTU, and the guy was like "lol wtf this is broken!" Yeah no shit asshole, what did you expect?

What I learned from all of this is apparently people cream their pants over high polycount ships with functional interiors . I mean, I'll admit, that new mining ship (in a game with no mining) looks and sounds legitimately good. An actual game company not run by a clown should really do "gta 5 in space" with HD ships like those, I know I'd buy it retail.

Yep, I skipped ahead once from the start and knew it was ED straight away from the lamplights. FailureTaRd thinks he's so clever with a 20 min shitty diatribe video dissing ED, wow, what a sore doubletalking crybaby loser. Lol, he couldn't even get the ship right, the 600i was SC's rip of the cutter, ED's premiere luxury craft, not the clipper. The idiot seemingly never could get, nor had a friend or contact with a cutter. So much for being a bigshot streamer :shittypop:  And no show of the fighters launching from the bay, nor a CZ with anacondas and corvettes and dozens of ships in combat plus capital class ships, nor thargoids or their abandoned bases, magnificent real procedural canyons and mountains, ringed planets and other great vistas, but no, he just purposefully shows select generic views when you could be anywhere in the ED galaxy. There is so much more to see such as in Obsidian Ant's and others' ED stream videos. You need to fly out the ship and go see them as it's a real space sim with locational persistence , duh, unlike the SC techdemo level ponzi mess. He's done his lousy ED streamed videos before while saying he was betting on SC over ED :laugh: When the ELE finally comes, he'll be so far backed into his hypocritical hole into obscurity.  :wave:
