OP  10/05/13 7:08:29 PM#1

It looks like their main concern is to grab more money altough they allredy reached any goal they proposed.

The "limited available" ships return again for a week etc.

 Bottomline : consume with  moderation, don;t fall in their marketing trap.

If anything it's player hype and speculation that causes people to buy ships (pledges) in Star Citizen. If they really were going for money grab they are doing a HORRIBLE job at it. Most of the pledges you see are just individuals that feel they need to keep up with the rest of the players, so they buy bigger ships.

The more money they make the more attention will be drawn to the space sim genre, which lord knows we definitely need more of, there's been nothing of note (to my knowledge) since Jumpgate Evolution went under.

I was interested in star citizen but just fighting in space ships are boring.

I want missions on land,it should have been like mass effect then they could have grabbed my money.

You realize Mass Effect had zero space combat right?  Sure Normandy was a spaceship but it was ultimately a interactive road map.   

It also seems you arent informed about FPS combat/play in SC.     You will be able to run around FPS or third person on planets and ships.   This includes FPS combat ON PLANETS (a stretch goal already met!)       So yes you will be able to FPS on a planet at release just like ME.

Are you aware that actually the game reached the funding goals for ship boarding, starbase and land combat?

Check this

Look for 16 million dollars forward (you receive a laser pistol at this point), in 20 million dollars goal is the fighting in lawless planets, not only station or platforms

This is one of those threads that sould be locked imediately.

You give no valuable information whatsoever, you make an accusation without any kind of sense, you clearly show no knowledge of the project itself since its a crowd funded project and RSI made it clear from the start what people were having or not for each goal reached and with the increasing revenue more goals were added, and you come here saying something like that about a high quality project geting 21 millions fan based when there are AAA tittes out there spending 10 or 20 times more that dont fit in your perspective of things.

The MMORPG.com forums have a reputation for being a swirling cesspool of hate-filled people bagging endlessly about games they never had any intention of playing or liking. OP's post is rather tame compared to the other people who post daily or weekly threads about the same games.

I see your posting here is about as intelligent as your posts on the SC boards.

 

Yep, available for a limited time.  Did you forget the part about "all ships will be available in game" or did you just decide to leave that little piece of info out....

What does any of this have to do with whether or not their game will be good or not?

I agree.  I think the space sim is one of the greatest things you can play on a PC and I am really looking forward to this game.  It looks awesome!  I do hope, however, that it is not a grinder.  I can't stand grinders.  One of the greatest things about the WWIIOL game I used to play is that it did not elevate long time players to god status/ability.  Any noob with a rifle could oneshot the day-1 players, if his aim was good.

I, being an adult with responsibilities, will not be able to keep up with the guys who can log 10 hours a day.  IMHO, being able to play for 10 hours a day is its own reward.  If you play for 10 hours a day, and get complacent, and get jumped by a small squad of causal gamers, and find yourself outnumbered 3 to 1, it should end in a bad day for you, all other things being equal.  Many hours a day to play should not equal invulnerability or near invulnerability to when faced by a group of guys that have 3 to 5 hours a week to dedicate to gaming.  In fact, IMHO, to truly be a sim, the new guys have to have sharp fangs also.  Truth be told, if the casual gamer has better skills, even if far less time to game, he should win most one vs one confrontations vs lesser skilled gamers with many more hours to game.

 

I will say this.  I know they are two completely types of games, but I absolutely loved Mass Effect, even if they screwed the ending.  I liked it so much because of one thing and one thing only...where else could you hop around the galaxy fighting different races, and AI life forms?  Where else could you visit exotic locations on other planets?  Etc...  It fed a need...a need I hope will be fully satisfied by playing this game.

 

BTW, does anyone know if there is the intention to have other lifeforms/races?

A year ago I've written a post about it. So nothing new for me, but at least somebody new woke up.

I just like the fact that the money pledged to Star Citizen goes directly to the game’s development needs.

Nobody pushing to launch it full of bugs.. because they want to earn money fast.

My main worry with this game is feature creep. the amount of money thrown at it just makes the feature list bigger and bigger.

I suspect either
A) they will never finish the thing or it will be massively delayed
B) the game will lack focus and be a jumble of disassociated parts.

I think the OP needs to look up what a money grab really is.

Gathering funds for development...is not a money grab. More money = bigger budget to do things.

 

People are like cats. When they die, you get a new one.
