I've said before, I don't know if there is a way to help those so far gone. Even if the game fails, even if it's declared dead and cancelled they'd still say "look at Duke Nukem Forever, it eventually came out!" and still wait optimistically.

Even if Croberts was sued in a class action lawsuit or by the FTC, they'd pitch in more money for his defence fund while bemoaning those nasty "Goons" and that "Derek Smart!" :rant:

Even if the game did come out and is revealed to be total poo poo, they'd blame "Goons" again or Derek Smart paying off reviewers or Gamergate or even the loving Illuminati.

Chris Roberts would literally have to record a video of himself snorting cocaine off a desk Scarface style, laughing his rear end off and telling the backers what gullible fools they were before they started to have any change of heart. And then it'd be too terrible a burden to bear and they'd end up killing themselves.

CIG needs to do like Blizzard did and literally tell people not to waste all their money on jpegs. Blizzard did something where they told players to "enjoy all things in moderation, even World of Warcraft", or something to that effect, which was a nice touch. Chris Roberts is the opposite, he just wants more and more. :(

Im pretty sure if Croberts released a video like that, people wouldnt be upset. "Look at that artistic direction! This man knows how to have a good time! He can MAKE THIS DREAM A GAMEREALITY FOR ME!"

One guy had a space court-martial for something in one of the larger ORGS, the SUN org that had that massive fleet procedure manual I think. This possibly inspired the space court joke that's pretty tired now.

No jokes about Star Citizen can get old. Mostly because its a big joke itself.

grimcreaper

I think one of the funniest and most sad things about the flight manual garbage is that a lot of those idiots kept using as a reference for what would happen in real space Combat. Try and bring intelligence to it and tell them fighters and bombers would never actually exist as anything other than for sport and they get super defensive.

Makes it so worth the argument.

Mrpanicy,

I don't think I have a problem, but my friends told me to just give the meetings a try. I have a Reliant, Super Hornet, and an Andromeda. As well as having gifted 6 Aurora stater packages.

As well, I am 1.5 years into the Imperator subscription. So that means I have a discount chit, which means I need to be something big.

I have been backing since November 2012, and it feels good to have given so much to a game that aspires to be everything I ever wanted a video game to be.

My bet is on the fact that croberts is a Pepsi man and somehow believed his product was superior, much like pepsi.

Had he been a Coca-Cola man, things would have been different. Coca-Cola people know how to manage superior products in the face of adversity and subpar competition.

But doesn't Pepsi Co. own a poo poo ton of different companies, and is much larger and more successful than Coke? :confused:

Pepsi does own a fair share of stuff but their philosophy is to saturate the market with poor product at cheaper prices.

Coca-Cola owns Dr. Pepper. These 2 sodas are the greatest sodas that have ever existed.

The one product Pepsi had that I like was Pepsi Crystal but that didn't last long.

Coca-Cola actually doesn't own Dr. Pepper, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group does. They have contracted out their bottling and manufacture to both Coke and Pepsi, as well as doing it independently, depending on region.

I stand corrected. Octopode, thank you for setting me straight. Please do the same for Chris Roberts. He needs some truth in his life.

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

pre-orders are considered actual sales and the money is divied out to the respective publishers/VC/etc.

Starcitizen is not doing this as far as anyone knows. Unless Bootcha can confirm otherwise, they are using the JPEG sales as essentially donations to fund the project and nothing is being considered "realized" sales. Therefor, VCs are not being paid.

Man... You know, i enjoy this thread because the Citizens provide such a poo poo show of their own. I wanted Star Citizen to succeed VERY badly. But i never backed it. I looked at the promises from the kickstarter and thought "Ok, that game is doable. But i highly doubt it will be out in a year or 2." So i held off. Then all the bullshit sales started, and it became more and more apparent that it was a scam, or atleast seemed like it. And today, here we are. And i still have no jpegs.

Except there is no baby anything. Croberts aborted it like he should have Sandi's attempt to reignite her terrible acting career.

I want to know how much money she got payed for voice acting, mocap acting, AND being a manager of multiple things. I bet she's getting all the pay stacked for each position. I'm betting she's gotten millions since the start of the scam.
