I'm pro Star Citizen because I've heard you can put people in space jail, which sounds good.

What do they even talk about on these streams? They always seem to just talk about ships on sale or ships coming to their store, but never any gameplay or whatever to show off. :psyduck:

At some point they are going to just run out of poo poo to talk about. Unless they just rehash the old poo poo over and over again.

No, there's a Bob Ross marathon on https://www.twitch.tv/BobRoss (officially endorsed by Bob Ross' company) and CIG are just hosting it via the Channel Hosting feature on Twitch.

It's so that if you go to CIG's Twitch channel, it'll just play whatever is on Bob Ross' channel.

Reported that Twitch channel for non gaming content. :wtchris:

I'd like to address you and your kind real quick. Don't worry, I'll make it brief:

Why? Why bother with all of the hours spent putting people down and trying to "burn all teh jpegs"? You could spend your time going outside, having fun playing games, or visiting your family. Instead, you choose to go out of your way to intentionally try and hurt people and their visions. Why?

If Star Citizen was going to fail (which it's not), why don't you just leave us "White Knights" (A community of One-Million people, I might add), alone and let us see for ourselves? Why do you care?

By the way, the man you undoubtedly worship doxxes teenagers in wheelchairs and children. Just fyi.

She's Austin based, so that's obviously why, CIG still haven't said that the Austin studio is downsizing just to operations support and moving to a smaller (cheaper) office. Which is a rumour from Derek and the Escapist and obviously seems to be true based on the job postings.

It's true.

The TX office was supposed to be completely shutdown according to my sources. Instead, in a move designed to "prove Derek Smart wrong" (seriously), they leased out a much smaller place and will have less than a handful of people there.

The more money you force them to spend, the more blame you will get, and the funnier the dying throws will be. Win win all around.

I mean to be fair, Derek, you and I both bought some jpegs for a game that didn't exist when we backed the kickstarter. As I'm sure a lot of other people here did too.

But never mind, I will agree that all of our psychological integrity should be questioned :gary:

Nope, not true. We backed a game. Now they're selling JPEG ships for said game. Big difference.

Wait wait wait. If your sources are right that's absolute lunacy. What will they be doing? Make work to spite Derek Smart?
