>Guy Spends $22,500 on Star Citizen, Has No Regrets
This is beyond depressing. Anyone got the pics of the guy going into dept over this vapourware?
>some guy spends upwards of 30k
>gets completely assblasted he missed buying a $2500 ship or some shit
>in "retaliation" to CIG, he buys up all the cheap $20 game packages meant for new backers
>bitches so hard and doesn't get what he wants. He camps the store page for someone's credit card's transaction to fail and then buys the $2500 ship anyway.
Say what you want about the state of the game, the drama and delusion of some of these morons is just too funny.
>>Guy Spends $22,500 on Star Citizen, Has No Regrets
I thought there was ships you can buy for even more than that? So there must be people who have spent more than him surely?
Go live life you fat fucks. Why does it matter what the guy spends money on? By the time you're all old, you will probably have spent more on video games than 20 grand.
I spent nothing on this game and even I'm disappointed.
I'm well over $1000 deep and the game is still one of the only upcoming titles capable of captivating my interest.
Haven't you heard? They are missing everything and have their entire teams busy making props for the next sneak peak trailers. Insiders tell that there is almost NOTHING read in terms of the actual game.
What are the conditions that these guys can be sued? Like, what would have to happen? Could they just put out some piddling bullshit space game that could have been on Greenlight and still come out unscathed by the law?
The shovels of cash which many people are willing to invest into CR's babbyboy autistic dreamgame is pretty heartening. It will get made at this point, no questions asked. only a matter of time.
I'm no exception to this with my Constellation, Superb Hornet, Gladiator, Sabre, and Vanguard, though. Nevermind the Retaliator I bought for my husband.
I think I put $30 on this thing way back when it started? Enough to get the game, anyway.
I've mostly forgotten about it. If it comes out and it's good that great. If it doesn't then whatever. I just want a good space sim, dammit.
I will never understand why people would spend so much money on it though.
I'm depressed that you think debt is spelled dept. I hope you use your depit card responsibly.
This entire game is a scam
i am enjoying every minute of morons dumping their money into this hot steaming pile of trash
Then why hasn't anyone?
After all, they're almost always fraudulent since it's been hundreds of years and apparently shit is still bad? What the fuck have you been doing with the money?
Oh right, making more adverts for charity.
there's a tiny little fps counter in the bottom right
it was captured in game, and i could make another for you if arc-corp didn't crash every time i loaded into it now that the client has been further updated.
>That fucking headbob amount and tiny step distance
>Expect them to master space flight when they can't even get walking right
>Suing a charity
>Basically, it's a coin toss if you even can
>Otherwise it's standard health/safety lawsuits and if they slanderize you for whatever reason
Thanks for proving even thinking about CIG getting sued shows how retarded you are.
Aren't these ship basically pay2win? Sure you can unlock them without paying, but it'll take time and everyone else will be off doing spaceship thinngs while you work at catching up
On hindsight, most of the charities you know about here in the UK are just pathetic africa based constant pleas for money, the only exception being certain cancer research charities and that's only because you hear in the news about a fun run event in the news.
All of the actually useful ones that are based locally are funded mostly by either the National Lottery or something like Red Nose Day/Children in Need etc, and you get free TV shows for that alone.
So I guess we're doing something right over here. The ones that don't fit the above description are usually foreign and usually achieving fuck all so fuck em.
Asides from the Super Hornet and the Sabre the main kicker for more than half the ships is the fact they're multi-crew and the price tag is an indicator of how much you NEED players to help run it, which means you can effectively split that price tag between you since they can't pilot their own ships while they're doing that.
The most expensive single seater with LTI is basically P2W for a few years if you actually make use of it to attack cheaper single seater ships, otherwise you need groups to overcome the multi-crew ships.
>We don't know how much of a grind there will be in the PU. Probably will be just as bad as Elite Dangerous.
You can have your own private servers though right? so jut console command in the ship you want if you want to experience it?
Who knows? They haven't clearly promised private servers and they always go back on it, if they do. You'll probably be able to do arena shit privately, but I doubt you'll be able to have your own persistent universe.
None of them.
Nigger what are you talking about? They do limited runs when it might unbalance the game, but otherwise thanks to CCU and how they want to stress how little LTI will be (which is true, it's not perfect by a long stretch) it's possible for anyone to get LTI ships more or less, even if they back only recently.
Never underestimate a game company to give you less than what they promised. Frontier was able to break their single-player promise with it's half-baked solo mode and Star Citizen could break this promise with just a moddable Arena Commander and keeping universe mechanics on their servers. How else will they keep running their cash shop?
The cash shop that isn't part of the game design doc? That would make no sense in the running of the persistent universe?
Also consider Braben didn't just break one promise, he under delivered on basically everything compared to the previous games in the Elite franchise let alone the genre and all for too small a budget.
Oh and he made it a console port as he was probably planning all along. Elite is a big exception in the games industry in general, right next to X:Rebirth.
>So, what's exactly SC?
The game that made multi-million crowdsourcing big business.
>What kind of gameplay do get from it?
Boring pew pews and racing
>What kind of missions, campaign or more?
That's not out yet, but I'll admit that should be somewhat decent whenever it does come out unless they really screw up.
>What unique mechanic do they use?
Making people put in obscene amounts of money so they have confirmatory bias.
Star Citizen is going to turn into the largest video game related lawsuit of all time. When it doesn't deliver and these backers all unite it's going to be fire and fucking brimstone, and maybe the death of kickstarter and early access.
I have that entire saga here, anon.
Literally 5 stages until CS caved in and gave him the ship
After more than a year, their shitty little arena module still plays like dog shit.
Guys, face it. Star Citizen requires a shitload of money and great workers to complete... it just has SO MUCH THING.
It requires at least 100 workers and a budget of 120 million to even finish on time atm.
I'm talking bout little to none bugs, glitches, crashes, etc..
At its current state and pace, the game will probably be delayed until 2020 OR the game will launch as a buggy ass project and the devs will just bail.
I'd rather see this form of dark marketing sorcery die with its master.
Can you imagine if everyone could do it?
Games are close enough to an empty box with an IOU and a bill in it these days.
I'd have to be raking in that amount of cash for a few years before its have immunised me to the freaking out at the idea of dropping more than five hundred dollars on this pipe dream, but that'd be the years of not having it informing the decision Not current circumstance.
If I was that rich?
Yeah, I'd probably be willing to chuck something at it because the loss would be negligible.
As it stands though, feel kinda glad I didn't.
It may come out, it may not.
I'll buy on release if it does for squadron 42
