What I appreciate most about this is two things:

1) We really get a detailed video of what happened on during the demise of the "Event Horizon".

2) The soldier that salutes know the end of his duty is near.

I wonder how hard the devs laugh when one of their backers reports an "exploit" in their pre-alpha model-viewer app hacked to mimic the rudimentary functions of a space game. I'm sure all these things are very high on their list to "fix," right after they begin thinking about designing a game.

Heh. I like how CIG has down a reverse bounty hunting bug thing that Google, Apple does and the customers pay extra to find the bugs.

Reinventing basic industry stuff nobody else bothers to make any fuss about, plus burning through a ton of money to deliver underwhelming and poorly finished goods that are designed to look nice from the outside despite production being rotten?

CIG isn't Chevrolet in this analogy. They're Tesla.

You are right.

The ships have panel gaps big enough to clip through.

Still love my concept jpeg though.

Chris is more like DeLorean.

Built everything out of the wrong materials, wasted tons of money, and nobody wants one except nerds holding onto dreams.

No, DeLorean didn't make cars that automatically crash.

I'm assuming that crypto is the other 3rd of the big three for laughs behind this and TSLA? Not sure I can keep up.

I'd like to extend this into a Space Game Quantum Hypothesis, which states that Star Citizen's development is linearly extrapolated from the sum total of mistakes made by the developers of all space games. If this turns out to be true, and enough people try to make space games and make mistakes along the way, Star Citizen's development will surge forward, and if so things are actually much better than the roadmap is letting on. Since anything that can be good for Star Citizen in fact is good for Star Citizen, then the BDSSE is weeks, not months, away.

The aircraft carrier requires tech they don't have (to keep the ships in place instead of clipping and exploding) so that one is 100% vaporware. So the next flyable ship that they have already sold has to be the Polaris.

I'm curious what they will call this tech. "Localized ship containment system"?

If the only useful thing to come out of star Citizen is that some goon in this thread points me to some nice tequila to try, so be it.

I've just currently started drink tequila about a month ago instead of beer and am ready to sample recommendations.

When you say "drink" do you mean straight up or in drinks like a margarita?

Yakuza 0 is incredibly good but the final two dance battle substories are nearly impossible and Miracle's second substory is even harder. I somehow managed to beat Isobe by 60 points but resorted to cheat engine after twenty attempts at beating Ogita. Thankfully beating Miracle is not necessary to complete the substory and Kiryu accepted that he'd never beat the king of pop.

I just resigned myself to the fact I suck at disco. Old age and reflexes I guess combined with tv lag I blame it on. And I suck at mahjong too.

Gotta say, 0 was probably the most awesome/hilarious game I have ever played. The levels of absurdity are just astounding. Slowly working through 2.

But at the end of the day it cannot hold a candle to the AAAA+++ title known as Star Citizen.

It is more CIG than that. Want to pre-buy a 812? Well buy a GTC4Lusso first to get an order in on the 812.

And it is true. Whales exist on every end of the spectrum.
