    Proof you don't HAVE to support what you don't like because of no alternatives or it being the lesser of two evils.

    This is good news.  They have 300 bucks of my pledge money.  All I can say is those investors probably though oh they are never going to raise that kind of money.

     

  • JacobossJacoboss Clarksville, TNPosts: 13Member

    Yup, I plotted some money into this. 

  • FromHellFromHell NY, NYPosts: 1,311Member

    Final result: 6.2 millions raised!!

    watched the livestream countdown for over 4 hours, really fun

    i sadi it before and i will say it again

     

    If i was the Star Citizen devs i'd be dropping bricks now.. A: They will never ever be able to live up to the game that fans have built in their mind. B: These fans will set a new record in entitelment. Put these two together and i hope that the poor devs have a good in-house councelor.

    I have no doubt it will bea good game... But seeing as a good bunch of people seems to think it is the comming of (insert diety here) they do not really stand a chance.

    So at best, you're wrong.  At worst, same risk as buying any other title.

    every single Chris Roberts game lived up to the hype and was highly enjoyable. This guy knows what he is doing.

     

    Not every developer is full of empty promises and marketing spin,  the most recent big MMO releases demonstrate that hype and ads alone are worth nothing (e.g. Gw2)

    You weren't invited to birthday parties when you were a kid were you?

     

    Damn you are negative.

     

    When the game comes out the amount of players who actually contributed money to the project will be such a small percentage of the playerbase that it won't even register. Investors had their bonuses clearly laid out when they chose their payment amount. Most will not demand more than simply that. Kickstarter game success ratios can be researched. Some have been very good little games upon release. I also believe that most who invest understand the risks. It is a venture and clearly demonstrated as such.

    You stay sassy!

    Let us hope that expectations do not go "Spore".

  • tawesstawess LkpgPosts: 2,538Member Uncommon

    Well.. i am just saying.

     

    Now i hope you all are right and i am worng and it actually manages to live up to everyones expectations. But my experince with the "average customer" tells me the odds are in my favour on this one.

     

     

  • erictlewiserictlewis Cottondale, ALPosts: 3,026Member Uncommon

    Lets just say Roberts has put a lot on the line, and if he fails to deliver he will never get funding again.   I expect something great from him.   I know a lot of folks hated the wing commander movie, I thought it was ok.  The wing commander games were great.  Just looking forward to see what they do with the cash we gave them and what the investors will do.

    Yep! There was no way in hell I was gonna miss out on this, perhaps EPIC is a word that finally can be used correctly,

    even if only half of it comes true. Co-op with friends is gonna be awesome.

     

  • RedempRedemp Hot Springs, ARPosts: 1,042Member

     Hype has been taken to a whole new level, now instead of preordering to buy into a beta, people are paying to have a game developed based off ideas? I REALLY hope this game works out for you folks but I'd almost bet ( a coke ) that this games going to be letting people down. All these ideas kicking around in donaters heads, they now have license to force feedback on the developers because in essence they are investors.

     

    Recipe for disaster.
