I have no idea what is going on. Been away for a week.

Is /r/StarCitizen trying to destroy the internet to keep people from talking bad about Star Citizen?

I was listening to the radio in my automobile device and they said processed meat can lead to cancer. They specifically listed hot dogs and bacon, but didn't talk about burgs/ground beef.

Does an intake of burgs lead to an increased risk of cancer?

I must know. Help me citizens.

Mr Smart, I know your priority is probably developing the framework, networking and balancing, but why don't you hire a couple of decent graphics artists to make your game look like it's not from 20 years ago? Assuming your engine can use shaders it wouldn't even be that huge of a technical issue, just a content one.

It's okay remember Chris Roberts didn't promise any dates. It will be released when it is ready and when the world is ready for it.

An artist designed it. Ben approved it. Sandi approved it. Chris approved it.

That is all that anyone need know about the future of Star Citizen.

What you have to realize is that just because Chris Roberts promises a feature doesn't mean that they will develop it.

This is how game development works.

If you're being ironic, ignore the following correction.

No, that's how "game development" works when you work for Molyneux. Roberts, or other 'visionaries' with pathological inclinations towards scope runaway and over-promising. And it's a formula for generating maximum short-term hype and the expense of long-term credibility, and their legacies are built on one success in the distant past, followed by a string of failures.

Well run gaming studios don't have histories of talking up all the feature-sets before they've even locked basic mechanics of play. Well run studios don't talk about their games before they've moved past internal alpha stage development and are well-into beta. Some don't even talk about them until they're in QA stage doing the bugsmashing on a game they've not yet announced and have previously refused to confirm is in development. Like these guys.

And crowdfunding is no excuse. Harebrained demonstrated exactly the kind of discipline and restraint that Chris has always lacked in their latest Battletech kickstarter. No stretch goals, promises NOT to expand scope beyond what they were pitching. Their project was in fact a passive-aggressive rebuke of Chris Roberts, and the digs made at Star Citizen are hardly subtle, because Harebrained knows the damage that folks like Chris Roberts and Peter Molyneux cause for the reputation of the industry at large.

14:35 - The amount of smugness contained in the following 30 seconds is painful.
18:15 - Does someone have this reddit post/tweet? Lesnick Thor :catstare:
23:35 - Host spends 45 seconds describing how call-ins work on a radio show. i want to die. this show is 2 hours long.
25:30 - hey it's that part i was looking for. in response to "is there space karate?"

"Let me go ahead and give this blanket answer for everything that you hear about in 10 for the Chairman and ATV and everything. These are - they're intentions. There's the things we would like to do. There's the things that we sign our people to explore, to figure out - you know, go and see about making this happen. Then there's the challenge. Then there's - going through and figuring out how to make all this happen. Not everything's going to become a reality exactly the way we spoke about it; not everything's going to work with every other system; it's an exploration - that's what development is. So that's probably why I don't know anything about it because we haven't actually done any work on it yet."

As an aside, I'm very excited about this promising new web series which may (or may not) have been shot using CIG camera equipment and edited using CIG employees.

(Warning: Contains 4 Non Blondes music.)

I showed this to an Australian goon. He said "it looks like the level and quality of an australian made film (sans the insane extravaganzas of Baz Lurmen or however you spell his name)". He didn't know Sandi was Australian. When I told him that, his response was:

"The connection is now clear. Australian films are basically make-work schemes for otherwise unemployable australian artists, one just managed to find her way into a massive pile of nerd money i guess"

So they're trying to make ships spiral out of control when their thrusters and control systems are damaged and about to explode.

Except they can't control how the ships spiral out of control in the way that they want them to because the thrusters are damaged and unable to follow the carefully defined "out of control" flight path.

As opposed to just having them spiral out of control in whatever direction the flight engine says they should?

I guess that's not cinematic enough.
