Happy July Blog Day everyone!!

On this day two years ago, I wrote the Interstellar Citizens blog which sparked a massive debacle (which is still raging on) over the Star Citizen project's viability and promise.

To mark this occasion, I have written an anniversary blog.

Enjoy!

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.

I compiled a list of the knee-jerk reactions that CIG and execs have done in response to me.

  • dsmart writes a blog saying they're fully of shit and couldn't build the game. CIG issues a press statement about dsmart.
  • dsmart says he has nothing to do with The Escapist story citing him. CIG issues a press statement, a legal threat from Ortwin, and an 8hr diatribe from Chris
  • dsmart says Chris and Sandi are married & engaged in nepotism. CIG issues a legal threat with accusations of stalking, harassment, and kicking puppies
  • dsmart says Austin studio is downsizing and closing. CIG issues a press statement saying "nuh-uh", even as they do just that, leaving a skeleton crew behind
  • dsmart says Sandi is lying about her credentials. Sandi closes all LinkedIn profiles (3 different ones, all with bullshit), posts a fake diploma pick on Twitter, does an interview about how she's totally qualified & has a marketing degree
  • dsmart says Sandi shooting movies on company property and dime. CIG issues statement saying "nuh-uh". Sandi's friends post proof they were doing just that.
  • dsmart says Sandi was using CIG funds to pay for her acting bullshit. CIG issues statement saying "nuh-uh", she paid for everything personally and the company one actor billed, is totally unconnected.
  • dsmart says CIG are required to do refunds because they haven't delivered. CIG issues press statement saying they're totally doing (they weren't) refunds on case by case
  • dsmart says CIG is in several violations of the ToS for having not delivered by Nov 2014 or within the 18 month cure period. CIG issues a heavily modified ToS, stripping all backer rights
  • dsmart says Star Marine is dead. CIG releases a scaled down, retconned, and Godawful Star Marine (2.6 patch)
  • dsmart says no way that prick builds the game promised, nor with CE3. CIG spends a year evaluating LumberYard without saying anything to backers. Then initiate the switch in 2.6 patch (12/23/16).
  • dsmart says CIG took out a payday loan because they're out of money. Internet goes nuts. CIG via Ortwin, issues a statement saying "nuh-uh, it was totally a financial management issue"
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.

Listening to the cast, it doesn't matter how right you are, or what CR fails to present. A lot of community involved backers suffer from extreme bias-conformation. ANY progress be it art, feature, etc... will be seen as proof of concept and significant progress towards SC. People act like that when they are scared. Back before SC got big, you didn't really see these reactions because no one was scared. They can only lie to themselves for so long.

There is a HUGE correlation between CR and Shitizens and Trump's core voter base. He has gone back on every promise, and doing everything basically opposite to the reasons they voted for him yet that follow him blindly. Using Trumps own quotes against them isn't even enough. The mental gymnastics and rationalizing they do is absolutely mind numbing. This is the EXACT SAME behavioral pattern you see in the Star Citizen community. Anything that runs contrary is just a "shadow government" out to get them and burn the place down.

Yes, that's why we keep trolling and making fun of them. They're basically aiding and abetting a protracted scam.

According to my sources, what GameStar wrote about 5-10 systems "at launch", doesn't appear to be true. My thoughts.

Remember back when for two weeks straight the dev schedule release aim date wasn't changed, we all figured out that it was because they were busy selling the Nox and Cyclone vehicles? Yeah. Well, the July 28th schedule just hit, and has another two week delay which is probably bogus anyway. I just wrote an article about what the latest means, and where we are now.

UPDATE: So amid the ongoing furor, a CS person from CIG has again issued a statement regarding the recent 3.0 schedule delay. It's as ludicrous as the project itself. To the extent that not only admitting to continue to increase the project scope - when they should be winding down development to release a game - but also somehow justifying a bogus schedule they know is unrealistic. A schedule to which they won't add the actual dates, but instead increase the delays two to three weeks at a time in order to avoid panic.

Meanwhile over there...

It's just not in our DNA to hold updates and content back. We simply donít do that. Because we don't have them. They're not there. We can't make them, basically we can't do it at all, so, we can't show it and we can't give it. It is not there. It won't be. Just buy a jpg or two and go away.

Also nice to see that they refer to it just as 3.0 as if the game already exists and this is a major update with new features et cetera. Hello..... it's Alpha build 3.0  :supaburn:

Our goal is to provide you with the most amazing gaming experience ever. Well, that it'll be for sure. The only part missing will be actual playing the game, but that's just a mere detail  :lol:

Basically their statement is admitting that Chris Roberts LIED to backers. Here's irrefutable evidence.

I wrote a quick Star Citizen GC2017 synopsis. It also includes a transcript of Chris's interview yesterday.

Good god, Chris can't even spin the illusion of SQ42 progress anymore to a sympathetic reporter. The idea that they've "got the chapters blocked out" as some kind of major achievement is just ludicrous. What does that even mean?
