When she crossed over, she was just a ship. But when she came back... she was bullshit!

It's interesting not because I think those things will ever get added to the game (as much as anything that's likely to be released can be called a game), it's interesting because they are making a more-than-usual naked grab for cash with this ludicrously expensive ship that you can't apply previous pledges towards. Plus they are trying to justify it with a USP that indicates that the scope can be expanded infinitely and in ways that weren't even remotely close to what they've previously announced even by the crazy precedents we've already seen. It's like when you are getting pissed off at the car salesman and are about to walk away when he says 'Well, what about this one? It comes with a feature that makes your wife better in bed.'

So, uh, tell me more about this car.

It's going to be totally awesome, and to get you in the mood we have prepared a trailer of a woman being good in bed. You can leave your 50000$ with us right now and then you'll be one of the few to receive this limited edition car as soon as we have finished developing it.

Not sure why the weird hate for using the word "interesting.' Same shit different day is interesting if one is watching (with interest) for when the bubble is going to burst.

Putting off the inevitable as a business model is fascinating.

I think it's exactly as interesting as sitting in on your aunt getting her friends together in her living room and then ambushing them with a MLM pitch and a speech from a recruiter. Like it's fascinating to watch, but for the most cynical reasons.

I am also watching with interest as to how long RSI can pull this off. But there's nothing particularly new or interesting about this latest digital art sale / Reaffirmation of Faith, and it won't change anything about the dynamic of the cult. It's just another postponement of the increasingly hypothetical Day of Reckoning.

Outside of the handful of developers making awesome games, RSI is my favorite dev. Rather than just churning out generic content, they're doing us the favor of not even fucking up the market by releasing stuff. I love it, drain off the suckers, PT Barnum would be proud. American capitalism at its best.

The stream seems to have ended but, in my experience there are usually a few extra squirts to come before you can shake out the last drops and zip everything up.

We were talking with some folks at Intel and it occurred to us that their new technology that no one has ever heard of is probably going to be necessary for the full enjoyment of our game that was supposed to be out years ago. It's really groundbreaking because nobody has ever thought to put a faster disk in a gaming machine before. We're very excited about the opportunity to make some other patsy handle the refunds while we deliver a stream of entertainment directly onto our customers' faces at an unprecedented rate.

This whole thing has to be some kind of long-running experiment in social psychology.

Dont need an experiment to prove people are dumb af. Just go outside and talk to literally anyone. Intelligence is a coin flip. Ability to critically think is a six on a dice.

Star Citizen is having an Anniversary Special Week sale to celebrate 5 years of amazing sales pitches. Seems that at the time of this posting they've raised
$167,877,904 but that still isn't enough to get the game out of alpha (in 5 years).  why so serious?

Good Christ, they spent 40 minutes of video time talking about a feature they can't even show a working prototype for, all to sell $50 and $100 plots of non-existent virtual land you need to buy a colony ship to use?

Holy shit. That is shameless.

But imagine the $$$ if Elite: Dangerous (which actually exists) sold off land parcels on the planets and moons of its 400 billion star systems at $50 to $100.

 This can only succeed if the buyers are irrationally greedy?



$50 and i can resell it? That's a steal. I can get people to buy this at much higher prices in 3 years.


It's the only way this seems viable.

OP is assuming its somewhat of a design-goal of eve to make players happy.
this is however not the case.

I think this has turned into a competition between Roberts and Garriott and who can sell the most ridiculous shit to their sycophantic fan base.  Roberts is clearly winning if you count money alone but Garriott still has him beat on shear WTF when he started selling his own blood.
