Sure, but Chris Roberts responded with the most unprofessional official letter from a CEO I've ever read. He basically confirms that nothing is run competently there, and that croberts has an temper that makes him do irrational things. Its been posted a few times already itt. But here https://robertsspaceindustries.com/comm-link/transmission/14979-Chairmans-Response-To-The-Escapist

Scroll past the bad c&d letter. It reads like he was on coke. Anyone who gives CIG the benefit of the doubt after scanning that letter is a loving idiot.

You know you can say "loving idiot" right? Only wageslave workpoors get the word filter.

Any time you see the words "Procedurally generated" you can just mentally sub in "Boring and really loving generic" and be completely right 99.99% of the time.

Wasn't this how they made the dungeons in Diablo? At long as there's a story tying everything up and giving you some (optional) goal it doesn't have to suck. poo poo, even Minecraft is fun to explore for a good while.

It's a case of the right hand working independently from the left hand. They'll never see it coming. Trust me, there's a plan in place. And the end result is glorious. It's going to be part of my legacy that will be written about for the next decades.

I've had a blast reading your stuff these last weeks but you should beware that after beating this drum with such gusto if this doesn't happen the goons are going to turn on you even faster than they did on SC. There's no "soon" here, no "we always knew that was the plan from the start", you'll get needled with it incessantly until you flip your poo poo.

Yeah. They've been stating since they became public of a 2017 release date, yet people are trying to rush them. I really believe in them on keeping their word and making an amazing game, and doing the 2017 release. I'd rather wait another year for an amazing game than have them rush it due to some people complaining that it's taking too long.

I probably won't be mad if they push that date to 2020.... I am already having fun in the DF Module, Racing isn't my thing, and since FPS Module is coming.... its like 3 different games in one. Whats more, I get to play this for 30dollars! (Early backer)

It was probably Dick Wulf. I mean he probably used a script to go through Something Awful Star Citizen threads, report them to imgur, and realized too late that he hosed up.

I mean I'm not a detective like Eonwe is, but that's just my best guess.


And one day later imgur raid, what a coincidence. Dick Wulf you fail at sending pictures and you fail at taking down pictures. How can a single man be so full of fail? I wonder how much e-cred you'll lose with your buddies if they realize what a dumbass you are.

Gaming online media sucks since at least 2009, and there are only very few exceptions.
Gamer Nexus, 100% excellent example - THAT is gaming journalism, not that mainstream crap. Gamer Nexus is so awesome in fact I give them money next month for being awesome. Never did that before, but I want, because quality.
That's probably because 2009 was when you started playing games.
