So I'm guessing everything they tried to help with ended up being a website full of promises and a really good connection to a credit card processor.

Hi,

its funny to scream at the videogame for 6 years. nonetheless, please remember to visit or call your parents wherever possible, because they'd surely like to hear from you and hear about your hobbies and lives et cetera. life is too short to let relationships fade away

There's no Sandi audio on that, only Batgirl audio. It's a mono track, probably Sandi was on the other stereo track.

You can clean it up by notching out the tone and its harmonics with expertly placed eq cuts and slap a big filter on everything above 8k

"what's going on right now is that Derek Smart and other people are using my statement as a way to say this is what they said. And it's not what she said and those people are just trying to incite bad feelings amongst the game. Now I do consider myself a pseudo journalist, which someone that is in the community and likes the game but also knows that I have to somewhat of a non-bias approach *laughs* when I do my videos and I've tried that in the past but people get a little bit upset."

Earlier At 1 minute 35 seconds

"Now it does make sense for Squadron 42 to move to the console, being the type of game that it is"

At 2 minutes 07 seconds

"It would be a huge seller on that platform, just because it's going to be an amazing game. Never was it mentioned it was definite and never was it mentioned that it was in the works, it was just something that we talked about hypothetically".

There are several layers of comedy here that I've really enjoyed. First you have the idea that something that logically makes sense, doing a console version of a single player spacegame can be discussed with one of the game company founders, float the idea that it makes sense to both of you, would be great, would sell loads but it's just talking "hypothetically". The idea that because you aren't saying something for definite or making an announcement, while the something in question would takes years to develop, but the conversation isn't important considering what Elite dangerous did.

Layered on top of that you have the hilarity of referring to yourself as a "pseudo journalist" within a couple of minutes of saying Squadron 42 is "going to be an amazing game", while displaying your own complete inability to refer to yourself as "unbiased" without laughing.

Then you have the historical record of Cloud Imperium Games displaying virtually zero professional behaviour, unable to release anything at all of even a decent quality, never mind "good", during an interview with a VP of marketing that seemingly has no relevant marketing experience and who appears to have landed the role purely based on being married to a chubby liar with a bad haircut.

Nichole D'Angelo you are funny and I'll sleep well once CIG goes bust, I hope you can do the same after plugging this expensive hobby of dreams for years to the mentally ill, while asking for money to continue to do so.

Also lol at loving up an audio track, you had one job, you really are talented enough to work there.

No.

Here is what happened, and I'll type it out in a list with little numbers attached so that it is nice and easy to follow through -

1. Batgirl said some poo poo
2. I typed that poo poo out, 100% accurately
3. That poo poo got posted on the RSI forum
4. Batgirl blames Derek Smart

She said

"potential console delivery of Squadron 42 only"

"I held off the stuff about CONSOLE because CONSOLE SCARES EVERYBODY"




And now that she created a shitstorm she's blaming Derek Smart. Here's what journo's do - they take loving responsibility for what they say. Pseudo-journalist my arse, sit the gently caress down Batgirl and go back to shilling for a scam company because it's the only thing you do well.

As if that poo poo is EVER going to run on a console, they really are as thick as gently caress to even think there's a snowball's chance in hell of any of that poo poo going near a console. But sure keep spinning it and throwing your money and time into it, and trying to sucker other idiots into it if it makes you all feel better about yourselves

Is there anything hosed-up in the Star Citizen poo poo show that isn't Derek's fault? Neither by action, inaction, inspiration, provocation nor association?

Let's call it "Batgirl's Law" to not mention Derek outright, it'll catch on like crazy

Batgirl's Law: When discussing the perceived misdeeds of Star Citizen's developers, backers, supporters, detractors or bystanders, the only topic up for debate is in which particular way it is Derek Smart's fault.

I think batgirl is just pissed because it's obvious what's going to happen, CIG wants to do a console version as CIG has always only been interested in money and the vast majority of the pc gamers who would buy SQ42 already have. Therefore console sales are a new source of potential cash, but she's also pissed because CIG being CIG, it's never going to happen, so she has the drama of CIG gradually informing the Citizens of their console intentions through her, while knowing it's pointless drama as everything is on fire anyway.

Solution, blame Sedrick Phart & evil goons.

That's exactly it.

She's having to placate backers (by blaming Derek Smart) for something she said about something that Sandi said about something about consoles that won't happen anyway.
