Reddit has something called a 'RemindMebot' https://www.reddit.com/r/RemindMeBot/comments/24duzp/remindmebot_info/ It is an improved 'Saved'. Anyway, the below is what's going around in Reddit/Twitter/Facebook. So I thought I'd post it here and see in 4 weeks (similar to how I would have done it on Reddit) how much is right and how much is wrong.
"The industry is a very small place....despite it employing thousands of people world wide , there is only really a small amount that control it and have any real clout. Someone on here , I know who , but no hard feelings whatsoever, pasted some of my more predictive posts on Chaos engine, in an industry only forum where there is much speculation and hilarity from people that really do know what they are talking about. The whole industry is laughing their collective sexual organs off at the whole thing. But there are exceptions. Most noticeably one Evangelical young man who is so brainwashed that he will not hear a word said against CIG, the project or the management. Because of this , much of what is discussed here has circulated among the dev staff. I would say 60% think it hilarious, stick it to them etc. 20% Im sure are shitting themselves in case they have any connection to me and 10% are determined to track me and any other dissenters down like wild beast's, and present our pelt's before the Stimporer and his consort. Thing is they are now running on fumes both figuratively and ideologically. People realize that this is doomed including the press who are contacting people left right and center. I still maintain that this is NOT a scam and even now in the dying days of Rome the brains-trust still really and truly believe that if they show enough shiny JPEGS and trailers for SQ42 then they will get over this and still produce the BDSSE.
Things to look for soon ......
There are 3 trailers . Best one has Craig Fairbrass in he is pretty awesome..one will be released soon. The Stimporer is being selective
Apparently one of the A listers is not happy at all about being associated with this Fuck up and is currently seeking distance. ........a lot of distance .......off grid physics distance.
The animation system is so fucked they have to reshoot mo cap......The budget set aside for this element of the game has over run by 12 times the initial estimate !!
Chris is really pissed about ED I mean really pissed. Its everyone fault but his of course
This forum and any forum that has any SC content is read by paid peons CONFIRMED. To be fair , they do adjust policy (with regards public facing issues ) in response. So..... No more of that fake news report bollocks, more dev interviews etc. This in itself is amazing
Ben is actually in a really bad way. I am not taking the piss here but please remember he is a human being and is clearly in a lot of trouble .
3 ! Yes 3 high profile ship jumpers in the foreseeable.
There have also been some rather explosive conversations behind the scenes with some very disgruntled top tier Wales. there is a genuine concern that these people band together ........
Other than that its business as usual: The Vanduul are up for a rethink by the looks of it as they didn't go across as impressively as was required. Slight concerns about scale/ships are now becoming real panic blockers and the blame game has begun. SQ42 Ep 1 or 10000 will be here next year , late next year .
For anyone that still has money in this, if what they want is a visually impressive but really boring first person dog fighting game running at 3 fps with loads or terrible and I mean fucking terrible cutscenes then sit tight it may still happen and you will be very happy.
Anyone that bought into this for an open world alternate reality where you can roam the verse and be who you want to be, farming and raping and grieifng and parkouring etc . I suggest that you rethink your investment..... and be fucking quick about it
At ease commandos "
Because of my 'Charge Backs' post I talked to a lot of people about Star Citizen; being the 4th link on Google search tends to do that. Based on what I've seen because those interactions, I can confirm the initial part with the 'industry only' forum is legit. Naturally, I think the rest looks pretty legit too. If you don't trust me, that's fine. We'll know in 4 weeks anyway as the trailers come out and whether there are 3 'high profile' exits.
It shows what PvP games are really all about, and no, it's not about more realism and immersion. It's about cowards hiding behind a screen to they can bully other defenseless players without any risk of direct retaliation like there would be if they acted like asshats in "real life". -Jean-Luc_Picard
Life itself is a game. So why shouldn't your game be ruined? - justmemyselfandi
