Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
There's no reason for being hasty. Only the greater goal counts. If the faith of his followers in the Citizens Temple is waning, Chris Roberts will  gather the most faithful of them and move to a remote place in the Amazonian forest, where he will found a village by the name of Crobertstown with the promise to make a RL version of the game for the members of his cult, but in the end, they realize that they have made a terrible mistake by trusting that man...

Pretty sure he tried that already, and the village burned down, along with half the rainforest.

I'm sure it's fine.  I just don't understand the nuances of village building.

The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I like where this is going, but I think you're missing the true goal. The true goal would be to use the gathered funds, and any other donations Citizens are willing to give, to buy one of the many WW2 museum ships and restore it to seagoing capability so that development can take greater inspiration from that one time in history that crobears actually know.

This will be represented in-game as an org citizens can pay to join virtually, a Sea-Org, if you will.

"We already suspected that something was wrong due to naming of their meeting place, most things ending with -con are bad like Lolicon, Siscon and then Citizencon... but we ingored the warning signs..."

Apparently there was a new delay, and from what I can gather from the disappointed comments in the SC subreddit, the delayed stuff were rather important features/content.
Potato!

Croberts must be relieved that he can come up with a Corona excuse... his only problem is that there'll be still backers left that just won't die...

Is it just me or does anyone here also ponder about what could have happened if a virology lab had that kind of money directed towards them?

This project is inherently disgusting to me.

 
Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
Well most of the money was burnt years ago before Corona is a thing. Dunno how good they're at making people stay at their cult now with the economy going downhill.

Of course it was, but to have money held in reserve for literally life saving investments might actually a relevant thing. Who would have thought?

I consider myself to be just as much of a space sim crazed junkie as anyone else in that forum, but even I will tend to say that a multi hundred million dollar investment on a video game is a surefire sign that social priorities are going straight to hell.

Well if Africa was part of our society, no/few games would exist

This is far too ****ing funny.

Why settle for an uninspiring cookie-cutter roadmap like all the other games? It'll be much better to wait a few months for a roadmap that'll be so damn informative it'll cure corona and **** out prophecies.

And furthermore, Star Citizen is good. Really, really good.

Still hyped to answer the call 2016.
