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.

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
>>
>>315296859

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.
>>
It's like people never learn.

The game, if released, will be THE blunder of humanity.
>>
>>315297492
Pretty much. We don't know how much of a grind there will be in the PU. Probably will be just as bad as Elite Dangerous.
>>
>>315285094
top cnck m8
>>
>>315297492

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.
>>
>>315294490
this. Spent like 25 bucks on it now i get the full game.

The single player will be worth it. if the multi player is any good ill play that too.

You can have your own private servers though right? so jut console command in the ship you want if you want to experience it?
>>
>>315299248

Not only that but there's a game in the game we can play now called Arena Commander, that will act as a perfectly fine try before you buy feature.
>>
>>315299248
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.
>>
>>315299551

That was literally in the Kickstarter campaign, they banged on about how it will be just like Freelancer with private servers you can mod and run whatever.

>>
>>315299690
Yeah? So? And how many times has a ship sale been "exclusive" and then they sell it again later?
>>
>>315299806

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.
>>
>>315299690
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?
>>
>>315300165

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.

What kind of gameplay do get from it?

>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.

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 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
