I'm all over this until Star Citizen.

Crazy.  The original goal was $400,000 and they pulled in $3.3M.  And now they need more money.

I cannot believe they passed up the PC market with RDR.
86  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: August 01, 2013, 01:40:16 PM
They just hit $15 million.

New ship class:  Escort Carrier

If only because I loved the uber challenge of Grand Prix Legends and pine for an update.

That sim was so damn hard.  I remember getting so frustrated trying to drive the thing through turns.

Alan Wake is fantastic.
91  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Your Steam Summer Sale (SSS) Haul on: July 14, 2013, 10:18:33 PM
Not much.....slightly over 30 bucks.

Only full programs I've bought are Kerbal Space Program, Poker Night 2, and SS2.  The rest was nickle and dime DLC.

I think 1pm Eastern time, since that is when the current Midweek Madness sale ends.

In the end I see it as putting my money where my mouth is.  I have been wanting a new space combat sim in the vein of the Wing Commanders and Privateer for a long time.  While I am getting rewards for the money I spend, I am doing it to support a development team.

Agree 110% (Lou Ferrigno style)

It's a true investment in receiving what the space sim crowd wants.  There is no way this is going to fail. (Could you imagine the class action suit if it does?)

holy shit, really, you spent over $1000 on a game thats not even out yet, yet alone we don't even know if it's going to be good or work.  Crazy

Damn straight.   slywink

I've spent more money on cheaper women, so I see this as a bargain.   icon_razz
100  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: July 07, 2013, 11:33:52 PM
Plus, this game looks so freaking amazing.  It is just what I was looking for in a space sim.

Welcome to the club of needing RSI to lock your account before they release any more ships!

Well, that didn't work out too well.  Upgraded to Rear Admiral, which added the Constellation.  Kept (rebought) my Hornet and also added:

* Avenger
* Cutlass


So far, I'm $1050 in.  As I tell my fellow male compadres.....I don't golf and I don't bowl (and I know damn well they spend a fortune on both), but I do love my gaming.
102  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: July 07, 2013, 09:48:45 PM
RSI just hit $14 million dollars in pledges.

I'm hoping that the alpha will be out in time for me to at least try a Freelancer or an Origin 315p before I sink the cash on one of them

That brings up a question.  Will you be able to fly any ship in the Alpha or are you limited to flying the ships you own?
104  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: July 07, 2013, 03:34:58 PM

The idea of insane profits has a heavy pull...who knows I may end up in a moment of weakness buying one before midnight tonight.

I almost went with the Retaliator, but wanted something a bit more maneuverable.  The Starfarer isn't all that bad in looks IMHO.  Plus I'll be the ExxonMobil in the sky making record profits each quarter!   icon_razz

Starfarer Tanker below:





108  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Star Citizen, space combat simulation game (Chris Roberts' latest) on: July 07, 2013, 12:18:01 AM
Well I went bat-shit crazy and upgraded my initial $30 pledge to the $125 Colonel level, which includes the Hornet.  I also picked up these ships (which are gone after today):

* Aurora LX
* Gladiator Bomber
* M50 Interceptor
* Starfarer Tanker
* 350r Racer

In 2012, the sale started on July 12th.

I'm thinking this year it will probably start on July 11th.

Not buying a PS4 or XBone.  Absolutely no reason to at this point.  The 360 and PS3 (plus my PC) totally fulfill my needs.

"This is a big change, consumers don't always love change, and there's a lot of education we have to provide to make sure that people understand."

Yeah... I just don't understand.  That's it.  Once you explain it more I'll love it.



Yep....they used the same excuse with that abomination called Metro in Windows 8.

Wow. For those who didn't see the livestream, go watch this video when they announced 'no restrictions on used games and everything else that Microsoft fucked up on and hard':

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SJ-To7WJyWs

Sony KNOWS they have Microsoft beat. Totally beat. Right there.

LOL, what an obscene beatdown of Microsoft. Tretton looked like the cat that swallowed the canary.


Seriously.  Who the fuck is running the show over at Microsoft?  Windows 8 Metro debacle, the over-priced Surface that no one bought, and now the XBone DRM restrictions/higher price.  All within 12 months.  Could they possibly fuck up any more major decisions by year's end?

I don't think we'll see a jump to $70 games. Inflation hasn't gotten high enough to justify it yet in the States.

Actually it has.  In 2013 it now takes $71.44 to buy the same $60 game from 2005.
116  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Based entirely on the 1st presentations of the PS4 / XBOne, which would you buy? on: May 28, 2013, 03:04:09 PM
Right now, I see absolutely no reason to upgrade to either.  My gaming time on the 360 and PS3 is basically down to zero.  I do watch Blu Rays and Netflix on the PS3.  But what little gaming time I do have is basically on the PC.  Games are much, much cheaper through Steam sales, GMG discounts, and Amazon sales.

Who cares about lovelorn Andrea, the Governor's schlong and moats? What we really want to know is what you thought about the singing at the end of Sunday's episode?



Yep...I thought that Kumbaya moment was pretty fucked up and completely out of place.  I actually FF'd through a large portion of the scene and when I resumed play, the bitch was still singing.
