I hope this gets included in the OP, Derek. I don't think there's a more lucid or even-handed summary of semi-recent developments with Star Citizen. It really goes to great pains to avoiding biasing viewers for-or-against the project and its management...

Is someone at CIG actually sending requests to Imgur to remove them? How on earth could it be worth anyone's time to eliminate one goofy set of images when they are thousands of goon parodies?

BEN: "Definitely know how important it is but um... it's getting to the point where uh.... let's see-- how do I say this? We put out our organizations 1.0, without a game to tie them into. Uh which made for a much simpler way to get the system out, but it also got people into the universe before we had a world to put them in. At this point we're about to kick of that world. But it makes organizations 2.0 much more difficult. So (blah blah) can't say when, can never say when, but when it does come it's going to be a whole lot more interesting because it will tie right into the game."

Hey can someone explain what anything in this picture is to me? I know that Star Citizen has a pretty serious problem with horribly over designing its models, but what the gently caress is even going on here?
I think it's the product of Ship Designers aping the Reapers from Mass Effect, and then Chris pulling a George Lucas and telling them to "wedgie 'em out" (overcomplicating everything to obscure the appropriation and put the master's fingerprints on the mess...)

I'm constantly impressed by how little they talk about how the game will work in Star Citizen on their show that's about talking about their game.
Yeah-- Frontier has pretty much done the exact opposite of CIG at nearly every step. The game isn't perfect but it's getting better at such an impressive (and quiet) pace. Meanwhile CIG can't shut up about what is coming yet delivers mediocrity in small portions so very, very slowly.

One day, I hope RedLetterMedia will give us the After Action report on this gigantic mess. Because dammit, the very best thing that came out of the prequels was his 8 hour takedown of them.

And Chris Roberts could one day star in a scene very much like this one

it would be interesting to see who shows up for the Austin Bar Citizen get together in a week or so. Most of the attendees listed on the announcement were LA people-- "and some Austin devs" (or whatever they said).

Congrats to Sandi and Chris on a masterfully executed plan. It really adds a special touch when Austin gets gutted at the same time that CIG Santa Monica gets the royal treatment like $20k coffee machines and a brand new even bigger office in some prime rear end real estate in a tax-heavy, high cost of living state.

Sure, you could've moved somewhere less expensive, avoided the luxuries, and kept more talent employed-- but where would the fun be in that?

You're worth it, baby-- and now the rest of CIG knows it!

Maybe? I have no clue. I just wanted to throw my coffee maker knowledge out there!

As for why to get one, it can make a crazy amount of different coffees and its all automated. You hook up a tank of milk to it and it does the rest. It does make an extremely great cup of coffee. The price tag comes with the durability and warranty of the device - its made to be used all day every day and keep on truckin.

I hear that the Austin team also has a pretty nifty piece of coffee tech.
