When I play video games with my friends such as CS:GO or Battlefield the one thing I really wish I was able to do is enact a really gruesome realistic first person rape scene on them

Honestly, I'm surprised reddit Nexus Mods hasn't changed the knife-kill animation in Battlefield to the player unzipping his pants and thrusting it into his opponents rear end yet.

Chris don't give up too easily and follow every urge
Loose your wallet and please continue to splurge
Star Citizen; it might be what you got so won't you give it a shot?

So you start off with a name and you know it won't be lame
The fans keep on demanding and you ain't got a game
Your boss is coming down on you and you can't pay the team and then
Back into crowdfunding again

Star Citizen has got you beaten, battered, cruised
You have an alpha, now it's two
Chris Roberts, he took you down a notch - so won't you give it a shot?

You're always under pressure, it's harder to QA when
You wake up and you realize that you still don't have a game
You can't go back to work and now you know just who to blame, ain't it a shame
Derek's causing trouble again

Chris Roberts, I know you tried to cut him loose
But Derek is still a part of you
Think you lost him but it ain't exactly showing
Got you by the blog and now there ain't no way of knowing
Pretend you can't get sued but you know just where it's going
Derek has got you standing on the brink

And now you get no work done and you don't have a buck
You show up to the office and you don't give a gently caress
Your inverstor's coming down on you and you can't pay the rent and then
Push back the release again

quote:

Don't forget us Realists.

Some of us (properly the silent majority) know Star Citizen has a high chance of not delivering everything they promised. But still choose to trust CR because he comes across like a man with a vision. I've been burned before by publishers over promising and under delivering.

However, based on my experience on the matter, which is quite substantial considering the amount of early acces games I backed.

This time feels different. Ofcourse, CIG and CR want to make money, but for the first time ever I'm getting the feeling this isn't his(their) primairy objective.

That's why I'm fine handing over $400 dollar to support this project.

tl;dr Chris Roberts, imho, is a good(safe) bet because he is building his own dream game. It just happens to be mine aswell.


You see, he's making his dream game, which is mine as well so I'm totally not biased at all).

Oh and of course he wants money, but that's all incidental!

Yeah, that game will be released but from that to "blow everybody's mind away" there is a huge jump. The whole thing seems shallow as gently caress.

Ok, so maybe "blow everyone's mind" was a little too excessive, but the point is that such a game seems pretty cool for being so vast, and its something that SC should've probably aped and added their own flair to afterwards.

I think E:D's galaxy is a better comparison there. I was pretty surprised to see the stark difference in scale between the two games, it's astonishing how small SC is.

I should eventually look into getting E:D. Is it more of a "wait for a sale" game or not?

Its also incredibly easy to spot the fanboy fanatic when they keep going on and on about how impressive SC will be. As if the game was fully realised, ready for release in two weeks, and they are a part of the dev team.

Ben is lifting himself up pretty high if he thinks anyone in the Cutlass thread regards him as a Bond villain. Even the most generous review is that he's incompetent, a bully, a unreliable source of information and if he isn't a liar he's extremely comfortable with relaying information that he couldn't possibly believe is true.

But I haven't watched the latest Bond movies.

Ben is as a bond villain as much as Sheriff J.W. Pepper is a likeable character.

You probably don't care about that though and just want my feelings on E:D releasing and SC still being in progress. E:D is a more limited experience and of little interest to me.

E:D is a more limited experience because they aren't trying to add every mundane space-job into a video game that I would play while away from my real job. E:D is a more limited experience because they decided "Holy poo poo, people want a game first and a finished product second, let's get a game out and then add features once the core is done."

I'm looking at these streams and it just looks like "Hanger 2.0: bigger and outside".

Besides being able to run around a map (again) and climb inside ships (again) what's new?

Absolutely nothing. You can fly around on your jetpack or in your spaceship. You can look at pretty nice jpeg spheres that represent planets (but you cant land on them). You can maybe grief other players if you can find any. You can watch microsoft swnd crash reports somewhere before closing the program via task manager.
