But seriously, if Mr. Dipshit internet overlord really tries to sue some poor reddit guys I would love to give some money to these guys. And if the money is on an account outside of the USA he can also forget about getting one dime of it, even if he wins. At least that I know for sure.

This thread and the last are always lovely. You see people, and they evolve. A little character arc. People who see their wrongdoings turn around and become...a better human being. If only slightly. But that is more than you can expect.

I believe this was a 200 million dollars over several games or years or something. If 200 million was spent on the steaming pile of excrement that is destiny that was a pretty good money laundering scheme.

It was 500 million, including marketing, for 10 years worth of Destiny releases - games, expansions, etc. I don't know how much was spent on the first game but it made a ridiculous amount of money on day 1 let alone everything else they have put out.

Amazing what happens when you release an actual functioning game.

Yeah, and it still says that on the archives kickstarter page too.
And we've now got the "sometime in 2016" thing for the S42 as well (assuming they survive that long).

What happens around the time of their "anniversary sale" (for the game that doesn't exist yet) is going to be interesting as all hell.

S24 is episodic content too. That is only for episode 1.

That's not even the worst, these people are at the stage of retrieving false memories. When the hell did CIG ever mention 2017 during the kickstarter?

Remember when they said that the game practically was one year into the development already when the kickstarter started? The Ministry Of Truth has decided that what they actually said was that it would be out three years later than promised. Probably.

So they are at least a year behind schedule, rome wasnt built in a day you know

BTW a year in full scale game development can be anywhere between 20m to 30m dollars. So those are expenses they werent accounting for in their roadmap

RSI is actually near 2 years behind, 3 - 4 years when Squadron 42 comes out, but the delayed timer will still be ticking because S42 will not be completed fully by then and the other promised gameplay modes wont be done yet either. There's no excuse for why Squadron 42 isn't finished and feature complete by right now. It should be a full game buyable on Steam right now and it's not and that is beyond unacceptable.

Squadron 42 is now called Squadron 21. Although it features half the amount of content Star Citizen fans are overjoyed that the same amount of time, money and effort is going into a smaller game to increase the fidelity beyond all that was previously imagined. As well as drink vending minigames you can now serve lukewarm ham and cheese croissants and polite portions of chocolates to your fellow citizens as they spend hours sat motionless in the back of your space bus on the way to the next grand adventure (each episode comprised of 45 mins video, 10 mins gameplay, 5 mins Gary Oldman speeches). Rejoice.

Yeah they had a lot of good will from halo to burn up delivering a boring multiplayer grind fest with shallow gameplay and a small universe. If you like doing the same poo poo over and over then destiny is the perfect autism simulator for you. I haven't bothered playing it since shortly after the first expansion so maybe it has gotten better I don't know. Just kill yourself if you actually put any value in video game journalist reviews.

Pretty sure you can't just ask for a refund of a VC investment when things go south haha. At best they could buy him out probably and the fact that they aren't should be a huge warning siren to even the most die hard believer because I doubt they would want to profit share with him after what he has posted in the thread if they think their game is going to make millions.
