    While I didn't agree with all the article said it did make some fair points. 

    The two main things that stand out in this article or review of the alhpa is:

    ~ looks great ( can make nice post cards) but no content... which is kind of no duh and a cheap shot IMO.

    ~ optimization sucks when it comes to fps etc even on really high end rigs which is IMO a very very valid complaint....CIG seriously needs to get it stuff together and get some of the backend optimized so you can get more than 15 fps when there a moderate amount of people in the game.


    While I get this is an ambitious project and maybe they want to add more things to the game before optimization it's taking far far longer than it should to reach each step and that's not really something anyone can argue away......add in gamers who are not very forgiving and you need to expect reviews like this.

    I think CIG need to start taking reviews like this a little more seriously than they have been.

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    The reality is the longer Star Citizen takes to release (complete their vision/game) the less amazing the game seems. Thats the problem with opening Early Access or having a playable alpha into beta. You play these half baked incomplete games, kinda enjoy them and then by the time they are actually finished 2 or 3 years later you are completely sick of the game

    THIS.

    But isnt it more like this...

    Man is shown video after video of how awesome the cake will be on wednesday and asked to keep giving money to the chef to bake the cake.  Wednesday comes around and the cake is served half baked but the chef complains they needed more time even though it was the chef who said the cake would be ready by wednesday.

    P.S. Chefs wife states the cake is still in alpha and should not be judged by the promotional videos that showed it to be delicious and those videos were just puffery which is a perfectly legal marketing tactic.

    Other chefs, like we see all around, would grab the half-baked cake and call it done so it would be ready by Wednesday. :)

    SC chooses to keep baking the cake letting you taste it as they go.

    Now does it taste raw? That's a shocker...

    No it's not....

    The Wednesday date was for the muffin, not the 7 tier wedding cake he agreed to buy instead. This is the same guy who never could figure out how that shape sorter worked and demanded a refund claiming it was broken.

    Here we can see a brave bright young mind trying to explain it to him, but alas it was to no avail:

    As someone who is just a tourist in the Star Citizen drama, I was under the impression that the release of this 3.0 was going to shut up everyone. Now it seems that those who made those "hints" changed their minds.
    Believe it or not, it was the haters who brought up that whole "3.0 the Jesus Patch" to polarize the whole thing.

    3.0 is a major patch, the biggest patch the game has gotten actually, and that is what was promoted. But those who were acting up like 3.0 would not come with the issues the alpha implies, were falling on their own unrealistic expectations.


    Where’s my wrong buzzer?

    fans hyped up the 3.0 patch as the greatest patch to come because it was going to fix the net code and all of the crappy FPS because that’s what CIG promised.

    “Haters” called it the Jesus patch because fans were praising it before even seeing it. Then surprise surprise 3.0 drops and everyone is told oh we were promising these network fixes to improve the game by a long shot but we ran into issues so it’s pushed back to a different patch.

    If you don’t want the haters to polarize things then tell the saviour of PC gaming to shut his mouth and let his dev team work and to not make promises that they have no idea if they can keep or not

    Then SC is pretty stupid because by the time the cake is ready everyone will have had their fill of the floury cake and be tired of it when it finally finishes baking in 10 years and people have moved on to the cake that was baked in half the time and is better then the 10 year one.

    No.

    People like you did, I think several times on this forum the persons referencing to this "jesus patch" were not the fans, it was just obviously weaponized to feed posting agendas of the need to dismiss Star Citizen as much as possible for many years now on this game forum.

    Playing that narrative to generalize and polarize the fans of this game with extreme generalizations (to implying the fans this and that) to be able to make sensationalist yet hollow posts.

    What else is new...

    I only see the hint of a cupcake elsewhere, nothing that remotely compares to the cake. I prefer to wait for the cake .... and pinch a bit while the cake is being made.

    Lol people like me. You mean people who call out the bullshit of the creator when it happens and then get labelled a hater because people don’t like being told they keep falling for the same crap?

    No sorry the fans hyped the 3.0 patch as the big patch that would prove us haters wrong, Derek Smart called it the Jesus patch and it stuck. Of course when 3.0 came out it was more like the marshmallow peep patch and not the Jesus patch.

    I’d rather eat a cupcake then be constantly reminded to keep buying the same cake over and over again and we promise it’s going to taste amazing even though we’ve never actually made anything before so you have to take it on faith we won’t suck.

    hmmm :p those people!

    The fans hyped 3.0. 

    3.0 is the biggest patch the game has gotten.

    3.0 proves the haters wrong in its way, the biggest argument as usual, and same as your biggest argument "things aren't real until they are released" to dismiss the demoed gameplay, now it is released, it is there, independent of bugs/fps.

    Of course, now you spin your argument to be about something else, and I predicted this here many months ago "once 3.0 releases and the things that were demoed are there, the argument will be about its bugs and issues"; and here we are.

    This became so predictable now these discussions are just meh.

    I’d love to take apart this eurogamer article. I’m thinking of writing a letter to the editor.

    This is almost as #fakenews as@cnn!

    Incredible how he puts out all this statements... FPS?? He didn’t ask me how my FPS are.. did he ask you before he posted that s@&$”y article?

    He didn’t ask me if I like it... but he must have a very deep understanding when it comes to CIG. Apparently he already knows exactly what the final game will look like.... ((((DS anybody???)))))

    STAR CITIZEN IS NOT A GAME YET!!!!!!!!!! Gosh I hope the guy can read it if it’s all caps...

    Star citizen is an idea, that 300 people work on... you moorhuhns are just able to to complain about it coz it’s in “open development”

    Meaning no freggin huge company behind their backs telling them how,what,when.why..... it is going to be a game that we the players helped develop. Imagine if SC would be in closed development, like most AAA games.. and you hear every year a bit about it and see some screenshots.

    Would you complain? Well yes! You’ll still cry like a snowflake .... when are they gonna release... it’s fake ... it’s this it’s that... same issue...

    We the backers! We have backed this project... knowing full well it is an idea! It is to become a game. When it is ready. It will never please all... and it’s not supposed to! When you write an article control your bias...

    Look. Star Citizen has changed, I don’t love everything they do and I’d like to see some changes in certain areas... but who cares.. others love those exact things I don’t... it will be a great game when it’s done... and if it’s not.... then write an article of how bad it is... but what you do now is... you look at a piece of land where the foundation was laid.. and you say... hey this thing doesn’t even have a door... how can I get in... and look where can I cook my ham... there is no kitchen...

    Cmon... good sir!!!! Please if you need the clicks I understand. But at least put a disclaimer at the end saying... all the above is an opinion and is should be considered fiction... or rant with no basis..


    A beautiful meltdown from the crybaby subreddit.

    Sure they are! If your point is Star Citizen isn't complete yet. This is big news to everyone I am sure and well worth every ones time :D
    Well that is his point, SC isn't complete yet, nor does he feel they've made much progress towards being complete.

    When do they plan to launch then? Until you have at least an estimate, all criticism regarding the lack of progress or delay in delivery is valid.

    It does not matter what is accomplished to date, only how much work/time is left to reach a MVP state so players can experience the entire game as it is has been promised to be.


    Sure, 3.0 was totally insignificant progress and this report that the game plays like it isn't finished is amazing news and worrying about mvp date that they are obviously moving towards helps everyone tremendously!

    Defend what?

    This is the opinion of a guy. There are many opinions. The fact @rpmcmurphy only posts the negative stuff because of the usual posting agendas doesn't mean the other side does not exist.

    Some are busy playing and having fun with Star Citizen, others on hating, naysaying on anything and everything that relates to this game. What else is new? :)

    Many people do not engage in this discussions because this is not a good place to discuss SC, just a good place to naysay SC.

    To be honest, I thought that the article, while well-written, might point to misplaced expectations. 

    Nevermind about polish and frame rates. Those are totally valid issues and items that you'd expect to see tightened up closer to a largers scale release. I'm talking about the expectation of fun. Remember that this is a space SIMULATION. Elite Dangerous suffers from this same issue, as does EVE for a large part. If you're expectation is endless action then you're probably looking in the wrong place. That's sort of the temperature I got from this early review. Sims aren't for everyone and maybe not for this guy. Fuck, "The Sims" is similarly boring to me when I'd just like to go out and shoot something up. However, that isn't to say that "The Sims" isn't a great game, for what it is. 

    Honestly, I think that the expectations the author has are somewhat misplaced on Star Citizen. I would strongly suggest that he ignores Star Citizen completely and, like many of us, wait for SQ42 instead. Otherwise, take it for what it is, it's a VERY real-to-life simulation of life in space and, SHOCKER!!, walking on a deserted planet for hours is boring. 

    Ultimately I think that what can be taken from this are that the graphics are second to none, and it has fucked frame rates (probably not unexpected based on prior issues).
