So I've never actually watched any of the 10,000 video things they've done, but are scripted things like this common? I mean even a stupid high school video skit ends up being something like an hour of work for 1 minute of footage so if they do this crap all the time, how do they even get any work done?

That is the actual issue. I spend whole days on set just to make a 3 minute short film, or a whole day to make a music video. Given the hundreds of RSI emails piled up in my mailbox you can tell they spend most of the day creating marketing material instead of a game. There's a lot of work needed to keep a scam running on this scale.

Perfect. Now, we can make the next stretch goals to lose the fur and add the feathers. After that, maybe a goal to add the beak.

We'll get to a finalized bird.jpg eventually. Or, we'll end up with a horrible mismatched abomination. Either way, it will be wholesome open development.

He's a smug piece of poo poo, in my opinion. He sees nothing wrong with this project, refuses to listen to reason, and likely loves his weight because "there's so much to love".

He is the perfect personification of this project.
After seeing that pic of him from 2012 it seems pretty clear that he's trying to eat away the guilt of professionally lying to mentally ill whales.

He thought he'd found his dream job working for his idol but then ended up having to lie on camera weekly to keep the jpeg money rolling in while realizing his childhood hero is a pudgy coked up Molyneux.

The scripted stuff seems to have tapered off-- with the exception of the Empire Report. I think even Sandi figured out she was embarrassing herself with those short little scripted bits, so she decided to focus on higher quality, non Sci-Fi related material like this.

You can just listen to it by ear and sing along into the mic, while getting the music from his guide.mp3 via headphones. It's how I did it for my take. Although I will admit, I used to sing in a choir and as backvocals so...maybe it would be easier for others.

Somewhere, way out beyond the Moon and drifting ever further away, Derek Smart clawed at his throat as the last of the oxygen in the cold, blank metal capsule was replaced by carbon dioxide, and his body began the 60-second hypoxic process of shutting down for good.

94 million dollars... Enough to smuggle one adult human male onto a Long March rocket launch from Jiuquan Military Launch Center. Finally he knew the truth. But too late.

Too late.

He's protecting his "investment", you can't have people going around laughing at Star Citizen, he might not sleep and start to question why he spent over $5,000 on it. Better to adopt some elaborate disguises and gently sway the public mood with an auditors deft touch here and there.

They can believe what they want at this point.

In the end, every nerd wants to be right. I wanted to be right about nothing being wrong and Smart being full of horseshit. I wanted to be right about SC being a big success and making me a good chunk of change in the process.

But when you step away from the sepia fuzzy glasses, and ask questions that should have an expected answer (but don't), that's when that sucking sound starts to be audible.

And that's why I can say I was wrong, and I'm doing something to correct it.
