I can see this thing becoming great eventually, but it worries me that I haven't been utterly amazed by it; not because I think the game is a bad game, but because I think I might be a bad gamer.

my weird personal quirk of being unable to appreciate Star Citizen

The possibility that Star Citizen might actually be bad is literally unthinkable to these people

Well fortunately for the Citizens, they never have to reach that point; they can just blame Star Citizen's failure on Derek Smart and his army of goons

They'll still be victims in that case, but they won't have to admit that their own stupidity played a part

Chris has finally been caught by the evil Goons. On the night before his execution, he begs God for just one year to finish Star Citizen

In the morning he's led before the firing squad, but a miracle occurs! Just before they fire, time stops. Frozen along with everyone else, Chris eventually realizes that God has given him the year that he asked for. He sets to work, creating the perfect Star Citizen in his mind

Anyway, he doesn't finish it in time

XK posted:

A man is being executed by hanging from a bridge. When he is dropped, the rope breaks, he plunges into the raging currents below. He rides the river for several miles to escape. He finally crawls on shore, and he's in luck, there's his Aquilla Constellation. He hops aboard to begin an endless series of amazing adventures, and begin his path of becoming a space hero.

The Constellation starts spinning wildly, clips through the ground, and the man finds himself in a black void.

He feels the rope jerk violently upon his neck.

  • The presentation will start late. Very late. Specifically, on Sunday
  • Until then, streamers will play the same garbage build everyone's seen a million times already, trying not to look too bored. This will fail spectacularly when one dies of boredom on camera
  • Ben will not be present as the building is not rated to handle that sort of load
  • Sandi will give a speech, but not only will her microphone be off, the lights will be off as well
  • Halfway through Chris's presentation, Disco will roll in, piss drunk, and launch into a two-hour rambling monologue which is unironically the most entertaining thing CIG has produced all year. Goons and refundees everywhere will rush to buy back in to the project

I don't quite know how to say this...

But Derek's game is bad.

I wish I could have pushed on past the quarter of an hour mark but really... it was painful.



Apparently since I played it for free at the right time, I own it now that it costs $10. If you can get around the completely terrible interface (by reading half a dozen manuals, each as succinct as one of Derek's blog posts), the game does do some neat and unique things. I'm not sure if I'd call it "fun" though
