Phi Phi Island was one of the worst tourist hellholes I went to in Thailand.

Ko Samui and Ko Samet on the other hand were amazing.

Was just staring into the distance at work wondering what had become of my life and dreams and that little bright eyed 10 year old boy when I thought of Leonardo DiCaprio like I tend to do.

Plus I kinda really like that movie.

At least they have the excuse of only having like 4 employees and aren't asking for donor money.

Not in my experience. I've been waiting a month.

So I started a chargeback process with my bank/Visa. I hope their dispute committee grants me mercy.

Yep I just got the generic 'currently experiencing an unusually high load of tickets' (read: "refund requests") message.

Confirmed I will get my refund 2 days before game launch in 2020

What bot is this now?

Some redditor wrote a bot that reported pics in the SC threads to get them autoremoved from imgur.

Some of the pics that were taken were actually reposted from r/starcitizen's top pages of all time. You can imagine the reaction.

Sounds like a sony problem not a consumer problem. Dunno why people would hold it against them it's not like it's their money. Sony is the one who is hyping it up way too much as well. It just seems like a neat little indie exploration game.

Hey I'm all for a business making money (both Sony and Hello Games). Especially when it's not a crowd funded non-starter. But don't tickle my dick for over a year before it's released.

And thus the circle back to Star Citizen has been achieved.

Re: CIG banning folks from the RSI forums for posts here, BeerForTheBeerGod was a prominent member of the RSI community and was basically the laison of good faith between the goons and CIG for a while. He was abruptly permabanned at RSI (skipping over the normally more lenient ban levels) for posting something that they construed as baiting/trolling (it was just something critical/argumentative, you know, a contradictory thought on a discussion board) and it just so happened to be during this thread's full-on nuclear meltdown. It was determined that RSI does actively read (and catalog? Wtf) this thread, so put two and two together basically.

The thing that gets me the most is the sheer hypocrisy in the whole thing. If EA or any other gaming company had done something like this (selling concept art with no release date for a game that kept getting pushed back and was still pre-alpha after four years in development) people would be asking for the CEO's head and threatening lawsuits. But no, CRoberts is somehow different! For....absolutely no discernible reason. Even though his last game had to be taken away from him and hasn't done anything in the industry in over a decade. The crowdfunded excuse doesn't fly, you are still a gaming company.

And they wonder why they get called cultists.

Two or three days after Sandi was called a racist by an anonymous sources who presumably work at CIG. They talked to the Escapist who put up a scathing article.

No you haven't. Not even close.

You have only just reached the beginning, for the Star Citizen thread will never, has never, and will never end.

You fleetingly chase an end you can never reach in vain hope of a conclusion.

But Star Citizen is endless.

Star Citizen is infinite.

STAR CITIZEN is eternal.

Which is true. I'm using the money to upgrade my daughter's roller derby skates.

Once the thread reaches a certain number of posts it will get archived. You'll have to go back to the "catalog" for the /vg/ board (their list of threads, but with pictures because 4channers are all in kindergarten) and find the next "scg" thread.
