All we need is Gary Oldman's head slowly getting larger and larger as the level fits into his mouth.

Honestly, aren't there intrepid goons who could probably crap out something like this on a weekend-long bender for a mere fraction of the cost (the cost being the alcohol needed to get them to the Ballmer Peak)?

Sure, but Chris Roberts responded with the most unprofessional official letter from a CEO I've ever read. He basically confirms that nothing is run competently there, and that croberts has an temper that makes him do irrational things. Its been posted a few times already itt. But here https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/14979-Chairmans-Response-To-The-Escapist

Scroll past the bad c&d letter. It reads like he was on coke. Anyone who gives CIG the benefit of the doubt after scanning that letter is a loving idiot.

You know you can say "loving idiot" right? Only wageslave workpoors get the word filter.

WELL THAT JUST HAPPENED!

I got a question for Smart: Did you consider not saying anything, waiting for Nov. 1 to come, and just quietly filing a lawsuit to get the financial statements?

Don't get me wrong, the route you took has been incredible to watch, but if I had to be honest I don't see how you doing all this internet warlording helps your initial claim.

It would be cool if the financials were released and we found out that they splerged all the money on non game stuff. You know, that's the point of getting a bunch of money. However, the backers would defend it with excuses like "oh we knew the risks" and "not all the money I pledged had to go towards the product being advertised, Croberts gotta eat."

true. Crowdfunded, early access, and procedurally generated are indeed the worst things ever in the game industry. Funny thing is, all three of them aren't mutually exclusive and combined seem to be the majority.

Like Star Citizen, No Man's Sky is suffering from "we promise this is going to be awesome" vs actually showing us it will be awesome. At least no one has paid for No Man's Sky yet

Overall there are a lot of lovely trends in video games right now. Just waiting for all of this crap to work itself out and let the dust settle. Gaming always goes through a few crappy trends at any given time. This is no different. Early access, Kickstarter, crowd funding, all of that poo poo is stupid as gently caress and a huge scam.

The first game I can think of that really pushed that term as one of their big selling points was Hellgate: London. Funny that.

What's the name of that other space game with the video of you as captain standing on the bridge and directing your fleet per hologram overlay rts-style ? And at the same time you had those huge bridge monitors showing how your commands are followed by the ships outside.
