Is there anything recently as pro tier as this video?

It packed more jokes into 20minutes than most sitcoms, it was a joy to watch and I'd love to see something in a similar vein of awful.

e: can't resist watching it again, and still finding it hilarious that it takes him 12 minutes just to get into a drat spaceship.

This is a pro-click, dude's in charge of a $400+ million company and gets stuck in the chat in his own game, twice.

Also his posture is horrific.

I have spent $5,835.00 in support of the development of Star Citizen.

How do you write that sentence and not immediately go "oh poo poo, I have obviously been scammed and need to cut my losses right now"? Like, you hear about people who spend huge amounts on mobile games or whatever, but it's all in small increments and it never tallies up how much they've spent in total because most of the time when they see the full amount they immediately realise that it's way more than they thought and stop. But this guy? He knows, down to the dollar, how much he's spent on this non-existent video game and he's still all in?

Has anyone told these people that video games normally cost, like, $60? Less if you wait a few months.

MORE STAR CITIZEN, now filling out a racism bingo card. Let me point all of these posts are on their lovely forum "Spectrum", which is why I am low on screenshots of them.

quote:

I am a long time backer of CIG and the project. I won't be leaving or boycotting or anything else.. but I WILL be hoping CIG steps back and thinks about what they did and the impact it does have on REAL people.. including those of us who have lost family to those who some seem to stand in solidarity with.

What's sad are how many forget the victims.. like my niece.. An innocent life taken for a cell phone and wearing the wrong color shirt because she took a wrong turn in a city she was not even from. Or how about the 16 killed this past weekend in Chicago, all black all at the hands of those in those neighborhoods. I don't hear any of you saying one word in outrage.

Where is your solidarity and outrage about those? I don't see it, hear it... nothing. Crickets.. But whoa, anyone that speaks against this current situation.. whoa is you that has the balls to call it out for what it is.. hypocrisy and true racism. Because you speak out about it, you must be the racist and therefore you must be insulted, slammed back, shut down, forbidden from speaking.

The hypocrisy is so thick it is choking. But hey, some you go right on playing your racists narrative attacks on those daring to speak out against the hypocrisy... That's your right. You go ahead and stand in solidarity with the murders, looting, destruction, burning, gang banging, drug dealing, sex trading.

There are TWO types of people on this planet.. Those who are human beings that happen to be of varying skin colors, who live by morals, trust, honor, integrity... And those who do not. Some of my very good friends in real life, are black Americans. My next door neighbor out here in rural America is a Black American family. And you know, I bet some here would be shocked to hear what they have to say about all this.

When anyone posts solidarity with another BECAUSE OF SKIN color, it is THEY who are the racists. Not those who have been victimized and speak out about the hypocrisy of those actions.

quote:

That's like telling your wife that she sucks and is incompetent, because she is working for you and you are your boss.

And then you wonder why you sleep on the couch that night.

You can not just make official and publicly announced statements and then expect that your customers just ignore it and only comment on it on that one place and that it has no other impact.

CIG supports identity politics, doesn't condemn violence, lootings etc. and is also fully against the current US administration, like the movement they support.

Wether you think it's true or not, whether CIG does want people to talk about it or not, this is now exactly what many people will take away from this and everyone with half a brain would've known this at the PR departement before sending out that message

quote:

BLM is as much about all of humanity as modern feminism is about equality, as MGTOW is about more than just hating on women, or how the Antifa is about fighting for freedom and democracy.

If you are against racism you do not turn around immediately and use skin color and identity politics to push an agenda.

I've yet to see a group of people or any movement that grouped together under the banner of identity politics that would then not push for such identity politics.

I don't think CIG wanted to support some upcoming supremacicst movement or support looting and violence. But with that hashtag they certainly opened themselves for such criticism and it's exactly this kind of criticism that their statement provoked, this endless flow of divisive comments that we never wanted in gaming.

If they would've said that they are against racism, violence, hatred, then fine. That's commons sense. No one would've really cared. But they didn't do that. They went beyond ethics and now it's political

quote:

This whole thing this a narrative being driven by the corrupt left, media and deep state. You gotta be touched if you are buying any of it. This is a attempted overthought by the failing democrats. BLM is a racist hate group Cloud Imperium Games
stay out of politics, very idiotic post. Cloud Imperium cuddling with George Soros

quote:

REQUEST REFUNDS OF YOUR FLEETWEEK PURCHASES OVER THIS..

quote:

Please, don't make me regret backing this project.
Keep out of the perpetually negative scam news cycle and real life politics.
This wave is not worth riding. If you use even one backer dollar to anything else than the progress of the game, you will have a shitstorm of refund request.

quote:

Big red flag, right here, just stop with this SJW bullshit, makes CIG look like a joke.

quote:

what a absolute loving joke cig you goon loving scum bags you blast all over your forums and your useless loving mods stating no politics then you bring this poo poo up gently caress you the fact that dude died had nothing to do with loving race those loving BLM scum bag fuckers let a little girl burn in a loving building because they blocked fire crews

If a milquetoast post made on social media about a current event is what kills this monster, I will never stop laughing.

This guy is completely unhinged.

Even if it happened (which, let me be clear, it didn't), the police would have responded instantly, treated it as a murder, and arrested those responsible. The public would have regarded the dude and his family with sympathy, instead of combing through their entire online history to try and 'prove' his niece was 'one of the bad ones'.

...and that's assuming they didn't just execute the 'urban youths' who were accused of the crime on the spot.

Which is, y'know, kind of the point.

It's like every, 'Well, what about this black man man who murdered a white women, hmmmmmmmmmmmm? Why weren't you rioting then? Makes u think.... who is the real racists...'

I don't know, probably because he was arrested and charged with the crime of murder? Whereas if not for the video George's murderers would still be at work today, committing more war crimes.
