Hello, I'm a stranger who came from Derek's blog.
I've been lurking for about a week. Just long enough to reach the intangible number of laughs I required to piss away $10.

Now Get Ready, because there's a story I've been too afraid to post in Derek's blog.

I have a feeing it's going to effect a large number of you people.

AND it will shake you to your core!



These are my cats:

They're about 7 years old and both survived a fire.


This is my cat Fonzie:

He kills rats, dreams of being "Ben Lesnick" fat, and has been trained to high-five on command and meow when you say "Ayyy!".
Notice the gray hair and yellow eyes.



Now for the shocking part!

Chris Roberts recruited my cat into his evil cult!!! almost a year before I'd ever heard of it!

Be careful out there everybody, you're cat could be next!
Keep them close.

More Coincidences:
1) I'm a German* auditor** who works with his dad!
* = Only in ancestry, Polish too
** = Not really, but it's a nice way to avoid explaining how stupid my job really is

2) The Escapist article makes Chirs Roberts sound just like a friend of mine (the only person I know who played a CR game [freelancer]), who after many years of trust, stole $200 worth of weed from me and ran off, never to be heard from again. So I know how the unknown thousands of people who haven't gotten refunds will feel.

If that isn't a good enough first post:

PAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRPPP!

I hope y'all are happy; Bootcha just got me to record a line for the requiem video. He might also have given me an irresponsible amount of whiskey first. It might also have been entirely my idea, but I am going to go ahead and blame him for my inability to carry a tune.

This video is going be hilarious, even if accidentally so. :3:

I reeeeaaally hope Derek has recorded a line for Bootcha's eulogy song. Derek, you have to-- and you should speak it, not sing it- so it's unmistakeably you.

(just resist the urge to include one of your typical mike drop lines like, "Star Citizen is a scam-- THE END" - I think that would probably hose the vibe.)

I wonder if refunds will soon just be empty bags containing traces of a suspicious white powder, mailed from a St Kitt's address?

Maybe containing a note saying "I can't believe I snorted the whole thing. Here, draw yourself a picture of a spaceship. <3 C&SR"

A Neurotic Jew posted:

I see what you're saying, but part of the reason they are being such shitlords is because they've been scammed out of a lot of money, and the more money you put in to something the more you have to convince yourself it was a good idea. Less exploitative space games will probably have a lot of the same assholes but they probably won't be as wrapped up in their lovely space identity.

These are all active Eve players, they're all ED players, they play every space game with every second and cent. They're like an ocean, and Star Citizen is just a very deep sinkhole, but they're going to be everywhere, being this lovely, to everyone. If someone makes a better space game they'll buy that too and they'll be lovely to me when I want to play it, and people will think that I'm lovely for wanting to play it. There will be a small group of people who aren't lovely who they can call casuals and exploit but the primary market and the primary development focus will be these people. Space games are ruined forever.

How did you get your cat so shiny? My cat is from a shelter and rather sick still but someday I want a shiny cat like you.

There are no guarantees. General health and a good diet helps. Brushing helps. Short straight fur helps. It's easier to see the shine on monochrome cats than on multi-coloured cats, and obv silvery grey cats like that one show it off really well.

The easiest way is to cheat and adopt an adult cat that is already shiny. Kittens all look like adorable little puff balls, so it's hard to tell what their adult fur will be like when it grows in.

It's also a really loving boring game 90% of the time.

Only reason I continued playing was because that 10% of things happening in Nullsec was legitimately good.

To be honest you seem pretty chill as well outside the reg date and dumb imgur poo poo. Just post some funny poo poo and be chill with us and it will be cool man just don't be karl. Also for you new goons my best advice as well is to not just post in this one thread.

This site has a lot of other neat stuff and tons of sub forums for other interest check them out because even the game subforum is a small portion of this site. The funny thing is most goons barely know or care about SC.
