Oh boy, if this game doesnt live up to the hype. Its going to be a monstrous time for all communities lol.

Remember the Titanic? I think alot of funding went into that too....

I'm not into Space sims so its not a bother for me, only space genre i like is Star Wars, im waiting for Battlefront 3 and a new Kotor :)

This game better good, or else... a sh**storm is going to happen.

This game can't possibly live up to the millions of dollars it raised and all the hype it's going to generate. Having millions of dollars and hype doesn't automatically make you the best developer of all time.

The man has money and a good rep, that's enough to make the investment :)
Abriael  +   304d ago
I don't see why it "can't possibly" live up to it. The man made games that are milestones of gaming. There's no reason why he can't do that again.

@Abriael

what kind of games did these games make before? I want to know so I can have some hope for this game
Abriael  +   304d ago
@AnotherProGamer: The Wing Commander series.
bumnut  +   303d ago
And Privateer series

...my work is done here. JENKINS!!!! My hat and coat! This stout fellow has things covered.
Flavor  +   304d ago
@Abrial Wing commander series was a looong time ago. They HAVE NOT aged well. In fact i hate to say it but they were very simplistic games, only known for their cg cutscenes with mark hamill.

He is trading on nostalgia for $$. Nothing wrong with that, just don't get your hopes up.

But...but...PC gamers pirate all their games /s
thezeldadoth  +   304d ago
steam is so cheap it sometimes feels like pirating
_QQ_  +   304d ago
So true,now i know why Console only fanboys call us pirates so much... they mistake our uncontested steam sales.
kevnb  +   304d ago
and console gamers buy games used to save $5 over full price... lol!
fr0sty  +   304d ago
Actually, PS+'s sales are starting to catch up to Steam here lately. Not there yet, but making good strides in that direction.
xPhearR3dx  +   304d ago
@fr0sty

Catching up? No. Getting much better? Yes. Steam has these sales many times throughout the year, plus new deals every day, and weekend deals, and full games for free to play over the weekend. All free. No subscription required.

PS+ is easily worth the asking price, but they have a ways to go before they can compete with Steam.
JohnS1313  +   304d ago
That's true, they do.
spartanlemur  +   304d ago
I haven't pirated a PC game ever and I spent over £200 on Steam last year. Also if this is true, then why are PC software sales projected to overtake console software sales next year?
xPhearR3dx  +   304d ago
I guess you didn't notice the /s for sarcasm.
cyhm3112  +   304d ago
so many stupid people falled for this, omg.
Pandamobile  +   304d ago
So many jealous console gamers, omg.
AnteCash  +   304d ago
it will be on next gen also....
CandyFace  +   304d ago
AnteCash, no it will not. http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...

Hey man, nostalgia is a drug. Roberts is laughing all the way to the bank.
thezeldadoth  +   304d ago
not nostalgia, i've never played his games before and this is my most anticipated game along with witcher 3 and X for wii u
Flipgeneral  +   304d ago
It has a lot of promise.

The amount of detail put into the ships is a testament to their resolve.

Crafting an actual galaxy with cohesive gameplay is another story

It's easy to continually break funding records when you never stop taking funding.
Pandamobile  +   304d ago
It's easy when pre-ordering the game is the same as funding it.

If they were serious about gaming they would keep 3mil for themselves and offer Yu Suzuki the rest for a Shenmue 3 project

Or maybe not.

As much as I love the Shenmue series, Chris Roberts > Yu Suzuki.

I was kidding lol

But I will disagree with the Chris Roberts > Yu Suzuki

They make games in two completely different genres... Equally good at what they do IMO
Naruto_Uzumaki  +   304d ago
more the hype it is the more it will disappointment people and fail... don't get me wrong i like the game but with so many people hyping this game it seems like it gonna be a huge fail when released especially how games were hype in the psst
aliengmr  +   304d ago
How many AAA quality space combat sims are there?

This isn't some COD clone, its a genre considered unprofitable by big publishers. Even the brilliant minds LucasArts abandoned it.

And considering this game is coming from Chris Roberts, its got a lot going for it.
ninjahunter  +   304d ago
Anyone mind explaining what star citizen is? Ive been keeping tabs on its progress and such, but the devs were kinda vague on the description. They describe it as a space simulator where you can more or less do anything, which makes me think, like an alternate reality simulation type game, then i hear people say its a space combat game.
XD Sorry, my knowledge on the genre is nill.
ALICE666  +   304d ago
an online game where you fly around in space, fighting, trading, pirating, exploring the galaxy stuff etc. basically a mmorpg but space theme kind of like eve online?

or you can just watch this from the man himself..

arbitor365  +   304d ago
they better put that money towards hiring a bigger team
shuuwai  +   304d ago
Starlancer was another one his games.
Dlacy13g  +   304d ago
I hope for the sake of all who funded that this game lives up to expectations.
