Listen up Chris Roberts I have an idea for you: Star Citizen boardgame. You can develop it way faster than a digital product and just send out specific ships autists paid thousands of dollars for as nice custom cardboard checkers or something. You keep the promises and money and then disappear on some tropical island.

Just realize: I wasn't asking about your troubled relationship with SC. I was trying to get you to think about your statement. Because unironically calling Mrs. Sandi Gardiners looks "disgusting" is as far away from reality as SC is from being a finished game.

Could it be that you're the one, who does not wanting to hear the "truth" at this moment in time.

I'm not ashamed to admit I googled Sandi topless and thought she looked good, despite the consensus in this thread.

I still think her, Croberts, Lesnick and the rest of the CIG acolytes are pieces of poo poo though.

Meh. If you look at her pics from her modelling days she looks better. She has lost weight and is too boney in the face now. Not a look you'd want as a model.

Let's be honest here. The version numbering has not been consistent for any period over 6 months. 2.0 can mean whatever the gently caress they want it to mean. also 'alpha', 'beta' and 'retail ready'.

So they're suddenly claiming alpha 2.0 is right around the corner after outright refusing to give a date at CitCon? Do they seriously have made multicrew working when they can't even stop their golf carts from exploding and/or falling through the world? And I thought they also claimed Squadron 42 episode 1 was coming with 2.0 instead of being its own module.

I just want to hear what the doc has to say on this.

Dude, I follow this thing probably more than anyone else and I haven't a loving clue what poo poo they are going to release, neither do you, neither do they so don't tell someone to google something nobody knows.

"in about 10 days times" is the new "2 weeks".

Isn't that how preorders work? Though I guess they're not usually what fuels a AAA game's sales.

Sankis posted:

Publishers like pre-orders because they have guaranteed money up front. I'm no business scientist but I imagine this is good for sales projections and garbage like that.
^^ this, in particular pre-orders are a big factor for larger retail buy-in. If gamestop has large pre-order numbers for game x, they order more shelf product for launch day. So the publisher isn't just getting the consumer's money in advance, they're getting retail's too. I think even in the age of digital distribution the pre-orders are still a thing for influence on front page positioning and co-marketing deals.


Don't pre-order games is still good advice, with steam refunds it's maybe a bit less of a risk. Or you can just wait for a sale and get the "exclusive" pre-order content that turned into DLC for $5.

Could be a completely separate branch of development where they threw the baby with the bathwater out and so it will work better but be even more bare bones haha. Or they are lying and just trying to match elite for horizons well you can take your pick. I still have no idea why this company needs to have like 7 different shell companies and like multiple studios all over the world it seems completely insane instead of just having one studio and 1-2 companies. I have no idea how they would get 2.0 together that fast even if they were flexing their man power finally. Look at what a train wreck the master chief collection was and it had what 3-4 different studios working on the same game it still doesn't work great.

We already discussed that. But I am curious, given your enthusiasm, if you can clarify what "Full product in a year" specifically refers to?

1 - Squadron 42 (If this- is it the commercial release? If yes, is it the first chapter of missions? All missions?)
2 - The Persistent Universe (If this, will it include all ships thusfar sold, 100 Star Systems, 4 alien languages, space pets, and everything else listed in Stretch Goals? How many players will be supported per instance?)
3 - The full commercial release of Star Citizen (Both of the above?)

If you know, please confirm. If you don't, that's okay-- but then what exactly are you excited about?
