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.

But Star Citizen isn't even a game yet, though  :shrug:

I remember when this (which just popped up again on my Discord server) was written back in July when they had only raised $117 million. We're at $134 million. Still no game.

"Hello, very cool blog. Do you think Crowdfunding might overtake normal publishing? You think Star Citizen crowdfunded success can be replicated or is just a one off thing?"

Meanwhile, back that the ranch, the conspiracy theorists are saying that no way in hell these fluff articles are by CIG/RSI associate. Because, you know...



Articles which have glowing praise for the project and creator, are somehow subversive attempts by third-parties.  :smugjones:

It's amazing.  :doh:

PC Invasion : Star Citizen Star Marine Impressions

Brutal:

Quote
After enduring Star Marine I have come to the conclusion that Star Marine is probably not worth looking at again for a long time. Anyone thinking it’s worth trying Star Citizen for this FPS module would be better off looking at something else. Anything, in fact. Anything would be better than what I have just experienced.

I haven't fired up anything Star Citizen related in well over a year so it's good to see that I'm not actually missing out on anything.

There was only one cultist in the comments on that last article and he was getting pretty slammed. They really aren't used to what reality is like outside their subreddit echo chamber.

The Mittani: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: STAR CITIZEN'S CHRIS ROBERTS

Quote
"Really it is all about constant iteration from launch. The whole idea is to be constantly updating. It isn’t like the old days where you had to have everything and the kitchen sink in at launch because you weren’t going to come back to it for awhile. We’re already one year in - another two years puts us at 3 total which is ideal. Any more and things would begin to get stale."

So this is why Star Citizen is stale now. Such a visionary! He got it right all along!  :bahgawd:

Yup.

Also, Chris Roberts held a Reddit AMA back on Oct 2012. Some glorious highlights. That was FOUR years ago.
