Finishing the game with everyone else's continues
CIG employing people to go reading this forum would mean they've probably read the transcripts from the Batgirl interviews where Ben stumbles and bumbles his way through question time. I can't imagine he got much love back at the office as a result of that.

it is expected of him to do that, so not much of a surprise there

So people at cig are paid to read this thread and then report to crobs describing the latest pgabs video and photoshops where his head is replaced with a thumb?

that doesn't sound bad tbh

I think EightAce meant that Ben is already in a whole world of terrible physical issues. I can't imagine his idol being an absolute fucker that can't produce anything concrete is helping the mental side of things either.

I have a friend that is 350+ pounds and just the problems she faces is pretty daunting.

I'm pretty sure the real reason I got banned from the official forums was for mentioning that CIG staff should support Ben's efforts to lose weight because his life is in real danger (and saying that Sandi placing a box of doughnuts in front of him live on air was loving obscene). I have no proof that it was him that specifically did it (although it magically happened a few minutes after he replied to the same thread), but someone seems to get pretty upset about the suggestion.

you got banned because you are messing up with their plan for Ben, they have plans for Ben and saving him from his unhealthy life is not part of it.

The industry is a very small place....despite it employing thousands of people world wide , there is only really a small amount that control it and have any real clout. Someone on here , I know who , but no hard feelings whatsoever, pasted some of my more predictive posts on Chaos engine, in an industry only forum where there is much speculation and hilarity from people that really do know what they are talking about. The whole industry is laughing their collective sexual organs off at the whole thing. But there are exceptions. Most noticeably one Evangelical young man who is so brainwashed that he will not hear a word said against CIG, the project or the management.
Because of this , much of what is discussed here has circulated among the dev staff. I would say 60% think it hilarious, stick it to them etc. 20% Im sure are making GBS threads themselves in case they have any connection to me and 10% are determined to track me and any other dissenters down like wild beast's, and present our pelt's before the Stimporer and his consort.
Thing is they are now running on fumes both figuratively and ideologically. People realize that this is doomed including the press who are contacting people left right and center. I still maintain that this is NOT a scam and even now in the dying days of Rome the brains-trust still really and truly believe that if they show enough shiny JPEGS and trailers for SQ42 then they will get over this and still produce the BDSSE.

Things to look for soon ......

There are 3 trailers . Best one has Craig Fairbrass in he is pretty awesome..one will be released soon. The Stimporer is being selective

Apparently one of the A listers is not happy at all about being associated with this gently caress up and is currently seeking distance. ........a lot of distance .......off grid physics distance.

The animation system is so hosed they have to reshoot mo cap......The budget set aside for this element of the game has over run by 12 times the initial estimate !!

Chris is really pissed about ED I mean really pissed. Its everyone fault but his of course

This forum and any forum that has any SC content is read by paid peons CONFIRMED. To be fair , they do adjust policy (with regards public facing issues ) in response. So.....
No more of that fake news report bollocks, more dev interviews etc. This in itself is amazing

Ben is actually in a really bad way. I am not taking the piss here but please remember he is a human being and is clearly in a lot of trouble .

3 ! Yes 3 high profile ship jumpers in the foreseeable.

There have also been some rather explosive conversations behind the scenes with some very disgruntled top tier Wales. there is a genuine concern that these people band together ........

Other than that its business as usual: The Vanduul are up for a rethink by the looks of it as they didn't go across as impressively as was required. Slight concerns about scale/ships are now becoming real panic blockers and the blame game has begun. SQ42 Ep 1 or 10000 will be here next year , late next year .

For anyone that still has money in this, if what they want is a visually impressive but really boring first person dog fighting game running at 3 fps with loads or terrible and I mean loving terrible cutscenes then sit tight it may still happen and you will be very happy.

Anyone that bought into this for an open world alternate reality where you can roam the verse and be who you want to be, farming and raping and grieifng and parkouring etc . I suggest that you rethink your investment..... and be loving quick about it

At ease commandos

Hilarious that CR gets upset at another game. He is only jealous at his own incompetence. He has had more money and hype that has materialized to squat. I guess that must burn.

It's pretty funny that a guy actually brought to the thread's attention for being a CIG forums regular who spent 12k on jpegs ships and who was trying to convince his goon brother that SC wasn't a complete mess was invited over, turned out to be a pretty cool guy, and after a few pokes and prods (because come on, twelve thousand dollars) was otherwise welcomed with open arms.

And the very same day another dude who spent a mere fraction of that on his own jpegs offends some people, gets defensive and irate when faced with the same poking and prodding, and even pulls a fuckin puppetmaster defense when people are legitimately trying to help him not make an rear end of himself.

With this EightAce reporting. I think we are entering an actual revolutionary situation phase: "In Marxist terminology, a revolutionary situation is a political situation indicative of a possibility of a revolution. The concept was introduced by Vladimir Lenin in 1913, in his article "Mayovka of the Revolutionary Proletariat". In the article two conditions for a revolutionary situation were described, which were later succinctly phrased as "the bottoms don't want and the tops cannot live in the old way". In later works Lenin postulated a third condition: high political activity of the working masses, their readiness to revolutionary actions." Or maybe I don't know anything about revolutionary movement.

Oh man, near the end of the video, the guy looks away while shooting. Like a full turn away while firing off a burst. That's some firearms realism in my immersion.

Also, the modern weapon carry is to keep your muzzle down and not high when not shooting, for obvious reasons. Even with your space helmet, I'd imagine a burst would be blinding, even if you manage to not shoot yourself in your own skull.
