  • Do you think Cryengine was a good choice for Star Citizen?

    No engine was/is a perfect fit for Star Citizen. An engine that provides source code is a starting point, and the only limiting factor is your ability to re-engineer the parts that don't work for you.

    I would also kick the idiots who clicked the link, for being idiots who click links. Internet for Dummies - If someone begs you to click a link, don't.

  • I don't envy the people who have to do year end lists and awards...

    The Award for Promoting Mediocrity, goes to those who hand out awards for mediocrity. You know it's bad when you have to invent categories that shouldn't have awards, like "Best Cash Shop".

    Or maybe they can afford to live just fine but are unable to afford to buy themselves games and have to wait for birthdays etc.

    Just because someone can' afford a game doesn't mean they are poor...
    You keep using 'afford' as if it didn't mean not having the money to buy something. We're talking combing the couch cushions and still being $60 short of affording the game. Not to be confused with people who can afford the game, but can't justify the expense. Regardless, providing them a game only helps COE with funding, and a select few with a sense of good will. It does nothing to aid people who "can't afford the game".

    You'll be buying copies for kids whose parents told them no, and/or people who aren't convinced that the game is worth buying. In the chance that you do provide someone a game who lives on such a tight budget that the cost of a game means they don't eat, then you've just reinforced their potential lack of priorities.

    The problem and solution do not fit. You may as well start an assistance program that provides liquor to the homeless, and running shoes to paraplegics.

    Then again, I may just be a cynical asshole. In which case, carry on, and keep up the good work.
