Long after all of this has been forgotten by man, children will sit around a wrinkled old man in a wheelchair and ask "Grampa, what is this Star Citizen we found pictures of on your old laptop?"

It's an "indie" game with far too much money, but still none the less making all the standard mistakes that indie games make - proving that such mistakes are nothing to do with budgets and are everything to do with lack of oversight and well defined processes.

Whoever at CIG decided that the way to maximise income from this sale was create new superpacks of ships hosed up. Nerds like specific things and these superpacks have ships they might not want, I think they'd have made a lot more selling the Idris & Glaive individually and I suspect they have realised this by now.

Just imagine how much depraved sex you could buy for that money.

What are you all bitching about, i mean SC is perfectly within acceptable parameters for creating a tripple AAA+ squared game,
just see how long everyone else has taken:



I mean, its absolutly 100% certain that these are actual development times, not time between releases in which said companies might have done something else...

In the meantime ive discovered that since the last time i fired up ED, you can now in fact install additional fuel tanks in internal module slots.
I also traded my dropship for an Assault Ship and went to do some actual space combat instead of staring at 500$ jpgs.

I strongly consider dropping 5 bucks for a palette of 6 paint jobs for my cobra, am i a bad person?

Is Elite Dangerous worth the AAA price tag?

Strongly depends on
a) what youre looking for
and
b) if you are solo or have a group

If youre looking for x-wing vs. tie-fighter style, no. Nothing like that. Its not arcady, its very sim-y. Ive lost a few million bucks to lazy landings or takeoffs, simply because its not handholding you. Like crashing my loving clipper with 50 tons of platinum into the docks because i was tired and wanted to do one more run and misjudged the acceleration of my new thrusters. Combat is... how to put it, "clean". Not very flashy crash-boom-bangy. If youve played Star Conflict, its the exact opposite of that. Everything you do, from a cargo run to a pirate hunt is a meassured, calculated and executed affair rather than "just played" if you know what i mean.

If youre solo, it can get a bit boring. In a group its awesome.
Even flying escort in 2 vipers for a python with a cargo hold full of rare ore thats all of a sudden being pulled out of hyperdrive by a pirate-anaconda with 2 support cobras is when the game is worth every cent.
When doing 6 hours of uninterrupted cargo-runs for money, it can get stale. But then again, its your fault for not blowing things to bits instead.

And they need to do that how many times? Sorry, can't buy it because this isn't the first time. Love CIG however, the live demonstrations need to mature if they're going to continue doing them. Like the dates they give, I think they are so optimistic that everything will go to plan there's very little risk/contingency/bullet proofing the planned live content.

I actually thought it would be cool to have boarding actually being done by dudes in Starship Troopers/Studio Nue/Masamune Shirow-style battlesuits, that would jump out of space craft to assault other spaceships, like the Orz space marines from Star Control 2. It's much cooler to be a humanoid space fighter, slightly larger than a man, zooming onto an enemy ship and delivering point-blank justice to the cockpit, or taking over a ship or station and dealing with security than landing or docking a Cutlass and having combat like it was a normal FPS.

Boarding torpedoes.
If you have to take over a ship, it should be done via boarding torpedoes.
