So yeah… Star Citizen. It’s stirred up more than it’s fair share of controversy, but I continue to be a backer and loyal supporter. Over the past few years I’ve managed to get a few people interested in the game, and so far they also seem to like what they see.
If you have questions and can’t be bothered to check the official site for info, feel free to ask away, or just drop in to discuss.
I’ve created a couple of Youtube channels where I upload gameplay footage, sometimes with commentary, sometime just to share a cool bit of footage. Links below.
Feel free to have a look and send me some thoughts.
Yes. In fact, you can play it already. It’s simply a new definition of early access. The only question is whether they will be able to eventually deliver on the promised scope, which let’s face it, is massive. But I’ve seen nothing to make me think the people working on this are anything less than serious about making an awesome game.
That probably sounded a bit negative. I was excited about this game. But the hype train has derailed years ago. I really hope they do pull it off eventually. I agree I don’t see them hitting the scope of what was promised.
I think they can deliver on it, it’s simply a question of time. I don’t know whether it will fulfill everyone’s expectations, but then, which game ever has?
Either way, I’ve played pretty much every build they’ve released since day 1, and it’s pretty cool to see how the alpha has grown and changed over the past few years. If nothing else it’s an opportunity to see a game being built and have a chance to play it at the same time.
Yes, there are plenty or reworks happening for older ships. The Aurora was updated for 3.0, the Mustang is being reworked for the 3.2 release in June, and the 300i is being targeted for this year as well. It’s a very popular ship and many people have been asking about it.
There are ships that are plenty more colourful than those I use. The suits are actually desert brown, you just can’t tell from the lighting in that screenshot. They’re also the base issue that everyone gets; there’s a quite a variety of suit options and not all of them are as bland.
