Asked TheBaseRadio what their favorite youtube series from CIG is, past or present. I wasn't surprised to hear 10FtC unanimously. However I was surprised when Juntau blamed his fellow backers for the game being a piece of poo poo; "You folks that submitted questions for 10FtC are the reason why this game is in perpetual fuckin development"

Ha ha ha. That is in no way a surprise, but it's funny none the less. Of course backers will blame other backers before they blame Christ Roberts.

I'm not aware of any existing term. But I like the latin "ipse dixit" (He himself said it) so ipse-dixitism

This is the most accurate because it's the application of 'argumentum ad verecundiam'. It's like the first commandment in scientific study to _always_ question 'trust me', or 'that's the way that it is', because otherwise Dogma.

It's one of the first things that fundamentalists pick on, which is why you'll see them hitting a Darwin effigy when biological evolution has been confirmed and cross-confirmed *by entire new branches of science*; that science is as dogmatic as religion, because you're _taught things_ and forgetting the whole point that you can derive science from _experiments_ or _tests_.

You can't do that with faith, although it took a bunch of people being creatively mashed before we figured that one out.

It does actually kinda lead into transference, which is a concept I've been batting around for a short while. That could be more of an effortpost.

That animation though. It's so good. Like after the guy mounts the wall he goes into a crouched run with his hands up in the air like he's holding an imaginary gun and runs full tilt into the wall.
Then the animations rubber band while it tries to figure out how to recover and turn him to the side.

If Star Citizen the experience* ever releases, it will simply be a series of immersion animations followed by cutscenes followed by more immersion animations followed by more cutscenes follwed by scrod. Press 'E' to fidelitiously flywatch spaceship.

There's probably a decent element of this among more than a few citizens. If the last games you've seriously played are from the pixel art days of the late 90's or early to mid 2000s, then CIG's crap looks impressively nice by comparison.

I mention this because I sort of fall into that category. I've only recently started to play stuff like Portal/Portal 2 and Borderlands (which are now themselves somewhat old), and it all looks super nice to me when I'm used to playing on portable systems like the DS/3DS.

Yeah. Our execs get to float around New York and Sunnyvale and occasionally talk about expansion and rotors and daily uniques and the rest of us are standing around the metaphorical whale carcass stuffed in one corner of a datacenter scratching our heads on what to do with it. Fortune 500 just means that the scale of fuckups is larger and spread over timezones.

Smart money so far is in walking away and loudly proclaiming that any rumors of a dead whale are scurrilous untruths, but we have a suspicion that someone is going to come down and invoke the incantation that has ruined many a weekend;

"revenue generating"

edit: Meeting on the whale concluded. We don't need any more people to help it along, and it should have become a lot less messy in another six months. Hurrah!
