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.

What a dick!  How can he blatantly lie over and over?

Montoya: "Truth of the matter is if that guy only spent $45 on the starter pack, he would not be so concerned. His issue was over-extending himself financially. $4500 is a lot of money to have tied up in a game for most people"

Well that's why we just troll and laugh at them.

Seems like the Star Citizen story about that backer being denied a refund is everywhere and it's not a good look for CIG:

Yeah it has been picked up by every major publication. Curiously, Polygon has been silent. Through Charlie Hall, they were the biggest Shillizen for the project.

Side related, but it shows how SC is increasingly obsolete (with their haphazard mismanaged focus on whaling-selling) , even in the area of a fpv walking game. Particular lol's in the commentary re: SC progress compared to NMS "fixed" or at least improved over a stable core, after two years. Updates all free for previous owners and now half-price sale for the game, so no sign of CIG-like p2w shenanigans.

Enjoyed the review but still on the fence about it, just tired of massive space games that are light years wide and inch deep.

Can Star Citizen be saved.

Nice long comprehensive view on the SC debacle. The guy makes some misinformed or fence-sitting mistakes. SC is a scam. It's long past any allowance for reputable motivations in the way CR & crew have run CIG to bilk brainwashed backers. And also far too late and ludicrous for any big triple-A entity to consider buying out and taking over SC and CIG. It needs to collapse and blow up big. The fallout won't be that bad imo, because there's still success by other independents in comparison such as Frontier and ED. The shillizens and whales will be relegated in gaming history as total dupes who were trapped by their own stupidity and their sunk-cost fallacy of SC.

I hear you jwh1701. I wouldn't exactly recommend NMS either if just based on their sordid reputation from their NMS release debacle. Just using their progress in two years as an example of focused development which has transformed at least the look of their game compared to the utter mess of SC's joke of progress. A lot of the recent hype of the "Next" update are from previous owners of NMS who are relieved that having been pre-ordered duped at NMS launch that with the update it apparently hasn't been a total sunk cost purchase for them. More unbiased reviews of new owners of the past week still say the game is mostly empty grind, a mediocre survival game at its core, dumbed down simplified pretend spacesim if it can even be called that, compared to ED, and after a few hours enjoying the new changes and additions, it gets boring quick again.

Yep and Derek's recent Tweets on the new medical ship are pretty much all you need to come to that conclusion - nevermind everything else.

Yep, I'd heard that. lol, at "can't give credence" to. While his whole video ironically gives credence to most points Derek has made or originated over the years about SC. Well, it's a long recap summary I guess.
