Re: Wing Commander 6: The Undiscovered Release Date (Star Citizen Thread)
Some of us actually want to see this project complete, if not succeed.

That ship has long since sailed.  That ship sailed when the Kickstarter started adding ludicrous stretch goals.  That ship sailed when some numpty thought that CryEngine was going to be the fastest, easiest path to making a finished game.  All that's left at the dock are the citizens with their $48,000 boarding passes for a ship that's left them behind and is never returning.  But hey, for $20 more, you can watch Chris Roberts tell you that the seagull **** is rain.

That ship only ever existed as a .jpg.

I know some enterprising Goon with $20 burning a hole in their pocket will pay just to record the ****show, so we'll no doubt get to bask in the glory of the highlights.

I don't know if they'll be able to top the perfect microcosm of Star Citizen that was the wheels falling off of that rover before it exploded with the shills attempting to play it making pitiful noises, though.  :lol:

Yeah, maslo, I totally see your point now re: Space legs. A game in which you have to spend minutes glitching into your spaceship is so much better than one in which you simply fly a spaceship.

That video was far more entertaining then anything that the $20 stream extravaganza could show. I had it all wrong, SC is really a comedy simulator!

It won't be necessary to pay for the livestream if you just want to see the content. MikeRoz's post about what Chris said says the content will be released to all a few days later. Though I suppose it's possible if there are any gaffes they'll be edited out.

I'm glad you didn't forget to put in the appropriate amount of JPEG.

Now if the stream is ****, it's all the backers' fault.  You see, Chris wanted to have a great stream, but people didn't want to pay to watch it, and CIG just don't have the money to do it now.

You could buy Elite Dangerous for less than Chris wanted to charge to watch another ****ty SC stream.

The gameplay parts have been posted on twitter (it's basically a remake of Privateer which will probably mean day one buy for me), but this video is relevant to the topic.  ;)

The interesting bit:



Chris Roberts wasn't involved in the coding and gameplay design of the best game he ever stuck his name on.  He just made a movie.  Not terribly surprising, but how the **** do people trust him to ~revolutionize gaming~?

Most people seem to like WC4 better.  I'm glad to meet someone else who thinks WC3 is the best WC.

Just more confirmation that the guy really just wants to make movies and not video games

In a way, it's a shame he isn't just interested in making movies. Because then he could devote himself to that side of things and leave his private army of game designers alone to design the game to go with it, and Star Citizen would probably have been released in full by now.

He did.  Made a few mediocre movies, then got driven out of Hollywood after Kevin Costner sued his production company for breach of contract (sounds familiar).

Lord of War is Nick Cage's best movie, but crobbers was "only" a producer for that.

This game is never getting finished.  It's just a buggy tech demo designed to part fools with their money at this point.  Just wow.
