Imagine my amusement when this 2016 Anandtech thread which was raging after my July 2015 blog (saying Star Citizen could never be made) popped up on Google. Now 72 pages long - and some still can't believe it. Read p1  :emot-allears:

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.

OK that's some funny shit. They're making their own roadmap now

How about make their own custom built engine from scratch then implement this "jesus tech"?

I think they broke him?

That's a great thread.

There were a lot of lies in the presentation that year but I forgot that they were claiming that all SQ42 chapters and gameplay features were grey-box or better. 

Even better, this was in the comments:

Well I think the tide has finally turned when posts like this donít get downvoted to oblivion and more and more people starting to call it a scam.

Probably.

This one will give you whiplash. He lists all the claims that CR made over the years. Whatís even more hilarious is that I have outlined ALL of this - and then some - in my blogs on this disaster.

Could this be the final nail in the SC coffin?


Think about it. The main reason the fanboys give to excuse the lack of progress is that SC has never been done before: nobody has tried to create a massively multiplayer solar system filled with thousands of players, a dynamic economy, full scale planets where you can go anywhere and do anything be that mining / trading / fighting / piracy etc all with high fidelity graphics.

Only in a few days all of that is going to be accomplished, almost every single promise Chris Roberts made is going to be realised in Dual Universe. Just without the ships, but even that doesn't matter as I'm pretty sure you could build your own collection of SC ships in Dual Universe anyway (and sell them!!!).

I have no doubt that the true believers will dismiss it. But just as we had with the Elite Dangerous space legs reveal: it's going to make a lot of backers ask some very searching questions about the project - only more so this time, because it won't be a fancy trailer that drops later this month, it will be the actual game (in beta) with endless YouTube and Twitch streams showing what Dual Universe is capable of.

I can't wait to see SC Reddit tear itself apart over this one. 

PS. check out the comments for the video as well, some of them might mention Star Citizen.

As a DU backer since the start, I can tell that it will have a lot of what Chris promised. It won't be the same, starting with the fact that they go public beta this month. Alpha builds run pretty decent by now! CR eat you heart out  :grin:
