Because, my friend, we've decided that Star Citizen is no longer a scam, and is the true light of gaming going forward.

Blessed are you, for this day you have seen the coming of our lord and saviour Crobbear

I would like to start the new thread with fond memories of my favourite Star Citizen moment: When Lowtax decided to rip the business model from SC and sell people had drawn JPGs of ships to raise money for these Dead Gay Comedy Forums. I wish I've had money back then to support the cause but maybe some of you have bought them and would like to share them again.

My favorite part is learning the game uses the Crysis engine, but in order to have outer space adventure in an engine built for a single island, everything in the engine is itty bitty, and a ton of the physics glitches are because of how tiny everything is and the engine literally not being designed to handle it.

To be honest, it's actually impressive that Cryengine can animate models at this small scale.

A while back they used to have a site that referred to the different systems they were going to create (a hundred of them). This site included the physical characteristics of the planets and moons.



Crusader is a gas giant. As you can see, it's around the same size as the Earth in game. Our two different variants of Gas Giants in the Solar System, Jupiter and Uranus are shown in the background.

They lampshade this by increasing travel times.

People still talk about whether or not people are doing things "ironically"? Chris Roberts was right - we never left the 1990s. Star Citizen is good!

Still actually want this game to be finished and be good. I know Star Citizen is a scam and will never release though, but that fact still sucks.

No Man's Sky was pretty close in terms of peak intensity, if not greater, but the sustain here is insane.

Though they've been losing people lately, especially now that they announced yet another delay to a supposed "firm date".

People like talking about this Kickstarter because there is nothing like it. Development started in 2011, it is still pre-alpha, there is $27,000 DLC packages that normal people have paid for, and the game is nearing $300 million dollars. Something like this has never been seen before, and it really shows a critical fatal flaw in both the way capitalism works, and how broken the game industry is. That something like this is acceptable to millions of people, is just completely wild to me.

This is from the movie Serenity, in case anyone is curious. Joss Whedon is the director, so it has its usual all women are objects for the men to use, but otherwise it's a solid fun sci-fi movie.

One of the best Cryengine-in-spaaaace struggles is the 'our ships are underwater!' thing.

And it's still going on...
