Wedge Regret

A little rye bread from Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. Two slices of prosciutto, so thinly sliced. One slice of apple, just as thin. And a nice chunk of New York Sharp Cheddar.

Grilled.

Add some Dijon mustard if you want - it brings the apple out.

Sadly, no pictures exist of this glory.

Derek I got an honest question for you. Why are you so forthcoming with your legal plans against CiG? Whenever a civil case is being drafted with my lawyers they've always said to keep quiet after initial contact due to saying something publicly afterwards that can bite you in the rear end during discovery. Granted the cases I've been a part of aren't game related it just seems odd to be so open about it all.

Nevermind that Raess20XX has been shown to act maliciously in attempting to get a VC's private investment stake seized while making spurious claims about them, among other people.

How old is she? Given she claims she's 22 In this 2005 article. So was she born in 1980 (as she claims on imdb) or 1983?

Also that site isn't an official BMW page - it's for Z8 enthusiasts who go around taking scenic photos. So she charmed some photographer with exciting tales about being a bit player in Hollywood.

I believe he does this because his crusade is just and pure to bring down Croberts and his ilk.

It's not that it's cool to hate on Fallout 4 it's just that everyone kind of already knows Bethesda's style of game, and since Witcher 3 just sort of strolled in and dunked on every other open world WRPG out there some people have higher standards now.

I liked the Witcher 3 (except the clunky, awful combat controls), but since nobody has played Fallout 4 yet, I believe Bethesda deserves the benefit of the doubt.

Is there seriously anyone left in this thread that isn't on the "Star Citizen up in flames" bandwagon? I'm a backer and I share that sentiment.

I'm trying to highlight that dickriding Derek Smart's bag of hot air isn't any better than signing over your property and spouse to Croberts. They are both awful.

Do you wonder if the actual programmers / developers of the game ever get tired of everyone including Ben "I eat job" Lesnick describing themselves as developers?

Kind of reminds me of the people who wear Ferrari jackets, hats, socks, shoes, etc to goto the store.

Technically he is a threat, because he has inspired people to look closer at it and garner refunds. And as time goes on and more and more poo poo he says comes true, more people will begin to look and refund their money or hold back on buying new poo poo. A Ponzi scheme needs constant income, it needs to be fed as much as possible the bigger it grows. It is a gigantic, all devouring cancer that eventually kills everyone. Tightening off possible sources of cash will kill it faster and basically that's what SC has become, a gigantic ponzi scheme that sells jpeg instead of stock. It has produced nothing tangible but buggy poo poo in 4 years and 90+ million dollars. The less eyes on that fact the better. If investors and whales start getting cold feet, that's even loving worse than people who weren't paying attention getting their $50 bucks out. CRoberts might not believe he is in a ponzi scheme that he is funding his 'vision', but that's pretty much how he is operating.

The lawsuit is small potatoes, if it even ever happens and I don't really care if Derek files or not (if he does, more entertainment. If not, oh well. It doesn't invalidate anything. Though he'll probably get endless amounts of poo poo for it). Even if it does get filed, it can get tied up in court for years or thrown out. Lawsuits take a long, long time. I don't doubt that if it is filed, CIG will attempt to delay it until Star Citizen is released with every promised feature. (IE: heat death of the universe).

there's a lawyer, a CS expert, an auditor, and investment advisor that vehemently defend CIG and Crobizzle at every oppurtunity. they also happen to be the two very highly qualified posters Octopode and Karl.

im sure they have a few other highly qualified credentials that i may have missed

D smart has produced one (1) letter on his behalf from a real law firm that exists in contrast with zero (0) from cig so it's a thin edge but one that goes to the good doctor.

Octopode is actually a really cool guy, despite popular opinions of his posting in the Star Citizen thread. I think it is wrong to compare him to Karl.

I'm not going to say I'm a fan of Derek Smart but, like a lot of people posting in the thread, I honestly just consider him to be just another guy poking fun at the shitshow.

That and he adds to the entertainment sometimes.

I mean I'll probably give it a shot myself, but the recent gameplay video leak showed that I probably shouldn't expect much besides a slightly streamlined Fallout 3 plus a town editor. I'll be pleasantly surprised if it's more than that, but Bethesda has a handful of mile-wide-inch-deep games under their belt so any bar they're trying to clear was one they set themselves.

That town editor stuff might be fun if it's sufficiently crunchy and with a nontrivial interaction with the rest of the game world. If it's just a tacked on mini-system like, say, every non-core gameplay element in any Assassin's Creed game then that'll be disappointing.
