The new Avenger-video was good:

Graphically, Star Citizen will surpass everything clearly.

"Graphically, Star Citizen will surpass everything clearly."

I don't fully understand the hype for the graphics. Now before everybody jumps on me hear me out. I do think that the game looks good from what I've seen (which isn't much to be perfectly honest). But what I've seen are spaceships, halls, hallways, people and space.

It's all things that aren't too hard to make look good (except for the people). Most of the stuff in this game is kind of geometrical. It's much harder to make trees or grass that's blowing in the wind look good. I understand that the game is set in space so there won't be any landscapes.

My point is the game looks good but not impressive imo. It isn't comparable to other visually great games like Crysis 3, Ryse or KZ:SW cause they haven't much in common.

Maybe I haven't seen enough to really judge the graphics though.

Reverent1667d ago

I agree with you, but I think Star Citizen is bringing graphics to a much larger scale than ever before, so that's why they are impressive.

Definitely getting this game, hopefully they put all that money to good use.

ATiElite1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

OK this is getting beyond crazy! S.C. was at $30 million like 2 days ago!

Aegis dynamics Avenger looks pretty good. I think this is the default ship for Squadron 42 or I may be wrong.

I just need lifetime insurance for my Retaliator and Stealth Hornet!

this guy is miliking people we will see how bad the game will be ,

DomceM1667d ago

is someone sad that Star Citizen isn't coming to his pew pew console because it isn't "push X to win" ?

Aww thats cute.

blackbirdi1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

i didn't talk about consoles at all and in the first i m a pc user when you want to reply stay on the topic

mdluffy1667d ago

32 million is the lower-budget of some of the next-gen console games, so it's not that crazy.

Dark111667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

The Witcher 3 budget is 30 million.

Let's see how good star citizen can be.

Rzep1667d ago

Witcher 2 cost 10 million.

Hellbringer1667d ago (Edited 1667d ago )

Star Citizen will be more like an 130 Million Dollar PC game.

Please look at this:

They can "put over 4x the resources in game development vs. other costs associated with the traditional box-production Publishing model".

admiralvic1667d ago

Come the end of the day... it isn't how much you spent, it's how well the resources were used.

Obamanationn1667d ago

Battlefield 3 was , 30-40 million dollar game... with over 100 million in marketing .

AnotherProGamer1667d ago

No the average budget for AAA game is 25 million

Cernunnos1667d ago

They don't have to spend half their budget on a publisher.

ATiElite1667d ago

PC games do NOT require that much money to make because they can done by small teams with NO Publisher!

$8 to $18 million is the average budget of a PC game except MMO's.

So SC having a $32m budget is crazy.

Plus No money has to spent on Advertisement which EATS up a lot of consoles budget along with License fees

Magicite1667d ago

For instance, Grand Theft Auto IV cost $100 million to make.

star citizen raised money using basically promises and some crap looking 3d models lol

Codey471667d ago

Peter Molyneux has been doing that for decades.
LyinHead Studios.

Looks like some of the staff will be treating themselves to brand new sports cars, anytime soon.

In the voice from that lovable sloth dude from the Goonies
"Thanks u guys."

mananimal1667d ago


LMAO very funny, bubble vote for you sir.

Rzep1667d ago

It's still more transparent than the pre-orders everyone goes nuts for.

spicelicka1667d ago

pre-orders can be easily cancelled, and don't affect the budget or development of the game, well barely. They're just a way of securing your copy or committing to buying the game...which has already been shown for for you to make that decision in the first place.

Regardless, it has nothing to do with that game. It may be amazing or it may be a fail, the graphics look insane though.

ChrisW1667d ago

Star Citizen is being developed by the guy was responsible for the most enjoyable space-flight games to date; Wing Commander, Privateer, and Freelancer.

If you've never hear of nor played these game, your comment is even more worthless!
