OP  10/16/12 9:17:32 AM#1

Last week, Chris Roberts came out swinging with his blockbuster announcement of Star Citizen. We managed to catch up with Chris at GDC Online last week to talk about the game and much more. Keep reading!

While GDC Online may have seemed quiet to some, it was not quiet for Chris Roberts. Chris is a game design legend known mostly for Wing Commander, a very popular game in the late 1990s which many view as one of the top space combat games of all time. After much success Chris moved on to films for a while and got out of the game busthewariness. However, he confessed to us that he has never stopped playing video games on a daily basis. Now years later, Roberts is re-entering the galaxy with Star Citizen, an in-depth galactic world with ships, space stations, single player options, and massive online battles.  The game offers a lot to players and the opening cinematics we saw at the show are breathtaking. We got the chance to talk to Chris at GDC Online and were extremely impressed with what we saw of the game.

Yes.

I make spreadsheets at work - I don't want to make them for the games I play.

It could be, but only if they reach their goal of 5 Million + in support.  Then 2.5 years from that point or later it will strive to be developed into a MMO.

No. It isn't anything. It doesn't exist outside of some mock-up screens and some Kickstarter begging lists.

EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

How about you make a content demonstration "mock up" like this out of "nothing"?

btw Crowdfunding and direct distribution business models have become common for games, in case you have been living under a rock during since last year -- I just wanted to let you know, so you learn something before you trash talk again.

Informative article. All I got from the initial hype was: Freelancer/Privateer + Engine. Ppl have been crying out for this sort of game.

Yep, Mumbo, they have. And no matter how sarcastic and naysaying some people are as we've seen in this thread, it certainly has a chance of happening. They still have over 20+ days to go to raise funds. As an example Project Eternity is nearing the 4.0million mark (3.85) with just over an hour left to go. It can happen.

 

(talking in general now) Why does the PE KS have anyhting to do with this? Well, I understand some folks have been living under a rock or came into computer gaming after Chris took his hiatus, but Chris Roberts created Wing Commander, Freespace and Freelancer. If you haven't played any of those games, your loss. Roberts has the same amount of credibility as the Obsidian Entertainment team doing Project Eternity.

They are only 5 or so days into fund raising, It'll take a little time to get the word out to all of the people who have bought Chris Robert's games in the past. Word will get out, too.

Know this: anyone naysaying just verifies they don't know who Chris is and what he is in the realm of PC game making. It's be like stepping onto an NFL field or a soccer field and telling Ray Lewis and Lionel Messi (respectively) you suck.

Chris has shipped multiple good award winning games. Google him if you don't believe me. This is one of those crowd funding projects where you know, if you know gaming history, you will get a good to great product.

Looks pretty awesome tbh. Played the Wing Commander games and Freelancer and they were excellent for their time. This ones is definately going on my watch list. It's actually nice to see someone who's making a true PC game, rather than yet another shitty port of a dumbed down console game.

I already learned the most important lesson a long time ago. There's a sucker born every minute.

There are no classes or profession as how you thik of them in typical themepark fashion.

You are a pilot of a spaceship. You either start off on the Squadron 42 single player experience which is military or (if they raise 5 million and it THEN goes mmo) you start right off as a civilian pilot. There will be a host of skills you can choose to advance through play. The titles you heard (Soldier, Explorer, Merchant, etc.) at this point best reflect the types of actions you can take, not defining a class per se.
