so here's a spontaneous followup: I played this game pretty thoroughly, inside and out, for the better part of a month....

And yet, you don't seem to have time to do YOUR ONE JOB.

We need our review of Cuck, sir.

That ship duplication thing has been going on for over a year. I can find reddit threads going back that far on a simple search.

And do you have 23 dollah to spare for your next space vehicle?

Actually the Reddit thread on the Dev who proudly announced it is worth a look, as there is some quality Snark there as they step around calling it a useless piece of junk.

Personally not a fan of the frontal struts. Completely blocks passenger forward and rear view. That said, I do like the minimalist design that maximizes on cargo space. I believe this cart likely pushes above its weight class.

While the struts may be of an annoyance to the pilot, the main deck of the vehicle provides an unencumbered view of the surrounding vistas.

Too bad it seems like a glass canon.

I heard the new SDF shield tech can be applied to things other than ships. Maybe it’ll be like a bicycle dynamo where the trolly shields get charged as long as your pushing it fast.

Have to balance defense with having a heart attack. Very emergent gameplay

$22 for a fucking space cart?

I spend weeks debating whether I should buy an entire game for less.

Anyway, I guess someone liked Death Stranding?

"I believe this cart likely pushes above its weight class"

That is one of the most absurd sentences I have ever read.

You don't get to make 'jokes' about rinsing your fanbase for useless shit that they are never going to use when your entire business model is rinsing your fanbase for useless shit that they are never going to use.

It's the last line on Sir Ts image above. That you have to do a character reset to fix ship duplication issues. Which implies the existence of a dupe.

Also none of you need details, who gives a shit, there's no game it's just a con.

My ships duplicated like crazy. One ship that I rented during the "rent and try anything for free" event lasted in my inventory for months as a duplicate permanent ownership.  Could edit it and everything

350 MEEEELION DOLLAHS in funding passed. Whatever else you can say about Chris Roberts, e.g. that he is a dogshit Project lead, he really knows how to make people open their wallets.



*edit* That's an average pledge of $115.25

2020, which was their tenth year of failing to deliver a spaceship game, was their best funding year yet.

Seriously? Musk has at least contributed to actual innovative space technology, built actual space vehicles and they've been used for actual missions.

Roberts is a grifter.

Yeah dude, at some point you gotta be pragmatic about stuff. Most people are horrible, the best we can hope for is that they do something to better society, technology, or something. I call it the Clinton Blowjob Rule (all politicians should have easy access to legal prostitution imo, it's such a lazy 'scandal' compared to, you know, the last 4 years of actual damaging horseshit)

Anyway. Maybe Chris needs a blowjob.

Perhaps players' vain hope of funding it to completion, to play it in lockdown.

P.S. I initially mistyped players as payers.

A grifter who knows how hard it is for people to accept sunk costs is a successful grifter. "Just one more installment! We're almost there!"

Sounds promising. Website is a bit bugged though :P

I open the site in Opera, and I get a countdown with an "enter access code" message. I am, however, unable to actually click on the text-entry field and enter the code.
I open the site in IE 8 (oh, hush) and I never see the countdown, but instead skip directly to a welcome letter and an enlist button :P

The next big gameplay addition is coming to Star Citizen: Making injury and death a bigger pain in the ass to deal with! Can't wait to see videos of people getting crippled when bugs cause them to randomly get injured when getting out of their ship or something. Experience all the fun of slowly limping, having more limitations of where to respawn when you die, dropping the gear you have on you when you die, or hoping one of the 49 other people on the server at the time feels like flying for 15 minutes somewhere to give you a rez.

Also they're doing the thing again where they talk about how they're adjusting development so features will be more fully implemented when they're put in the game which I believe is at least the 3rd time they've made claims like that.

That is fucking crazy.  Even if this game suddenly came out and was technically perfect, it would be out-of-date and uninteresting.

i bet they are thrilled about having employment for another 5 years since there is no immediate risk of being kicked out when the game releases.
