There are Belgians in the mid-high 20s. Many of them don't even taste like it at all!

I'm sorry that reality doesn't fall neatly into the personal narrative you've constructed where all people who choose to spend money on a game of their choosing suffer from some mental disorder that you get to play the hero and save them from. The reality is that people see something in the game that excites them, and they are willing to spend money because of that.

It's yet another day in the wasteland.



So has anyone been able to answer how they've managed to take a semi-functional engine (albeit one aimed at spectacle more than anything) and have it be so completely devoid of functionality? What have they done to the poor thing to even make those things happen?

On chargebacks:

It is most efficient to state generic reasons for requesting a refund. However the part of my brain which is neither calculating or efficient, is offended.

I could state,

"Hey I don't follow your game too closely. I pledged/donated back in the LTI stage because I figured 2X(Freelancer 2 MSRB) seemed alright. But now I have learned that you are singling out a group of internet people of whom I am fond and treating them unfairly. This is why I would like a refund."

and if the 'internet minority' consisted of sexual deviants or racial minorities that would make it A Big Deal but because we're just a bunch of shitposters it's alright.


At this point I feel that if there ever is a Persistent Universe, it will not be run in an impartial manner. I predict something between pre-CSM EVE (ca. 2006) and "roommate's CS server".

Yes. You can get over 20% with the right yeast. The longer you age the less bite the alcohol has, and instead the result is a very pleasant and buttery smooth taste.

Derek Smart is like ... Muad'Dib if you think about it. He who controls the JPEGs controls the internet. When Derek was cast out of the space game community, he came to our sietch and proved his prowess as a goon. Nay, he proved himself a greater shitposter than all other goons, for which the prophecies foretold will lead us to salvation.

He is the Kwisatz Haderach of shitposting. He is the one who can shitpost where we cannot.

On a related note, I picked some hops I found growing near home - no idea whatsoever of what kind it is - and have frozen it in the hope of using it for brewing some time. How likely is it that I wasted my time and/or future beer?

Remember when gaming journalism was about INFORMATION not shoving in bribed opinion into everyone´s faces all the time?
gaming journalism is now as trustworthy as CNN, FOX and MSNBC. Mainstream bullshit.
Gaming media has been in the gutter for quite some time. Whores and lobbyists.
I've been a consumer of "gaming journalism" since the days of the ZX Spectrum and it was always "bribed opinion".

no, all they can do is rambling and begging for clicks. Which I refuse to give them, unless my adblock is set to maximum stun.
Gaming online media sucks since at least 2009, and there are only very few exceptions.
Gamer Nexus, 100% excellent example - THAT is gaming journalism, not that mainstream crap. Gamer Nexus is so awesome in fact I give them money next month for being awesome. Never did that before, but I want, because quality.
That's probably because 2009 was when you started playing games.

Guys, please stop. if you keep encouraging refunds and questioning CIG, they won't have funds to make the game. Things would have been perfectly fine if you all had just stayed quiet, but now with bad publicity and less funds things are going to be even more delayed and they have to resort to more creative ways to get funding. This could have been successful! Everyone's free to spend their money how they want so just enjoy the dream that costs you nothing. you stirred up the crazies, that exist in every community, which have spoiled it for the silent majority. If you have nothing nice to say don't say anything at all.

Telling people to get their money out of a promising Kickstarter that has devolved into the most pathetic Ponzi scheme in history run by an incompetent egomaniac is a loving public service.

The community is a bunch of sad deluded nerds buying jpegs for something that doesn't exist and don't have the backbone and balls to say 'What the gently caress are you doing with my money'. They are sycophants who silence any questions. I am not shedding any tears for the spineless, cult like community
