Has Joe Blobers already been spotted on all those forums?

Yup.

"Poor blobbers. There are sites creeping up for which he probably doesn't even have accounts." :emot-lol:
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.

The largest German mag weighs in

Followed by our German shills, who didn't even mention the Forbes article - yet pointing to their 2018 "Everything is OK!" shill article

We have been here before,  but you would think these sorts of articles would reduce income from JPEG sales .....

They love quoting the Backer/Fan number as though it is fact though.

I wonder how Chris and Sandi are doing right now. This is their worst nightmare. At least, one of them. There is no way spinning or controlling this story

Years ago, most games media was still showing great enthusiasm and support for SC despite clear signs of what was going on. Some speculated that at some point, the media would flip its attitude. The Kotaku UK and Escapist articles didn't manage to trigger that. Obvious signs of non-viability didn't do it either. But it looks that this critical article in a big non-game magazine achieved it.
