Star Citizen is continuing to shatter crowd funding records week after week. Chris Roberts’ upcoming game just passed the mind boggling amount of 35 million dollars.
how can people disagree with a :) face is beyond me. :) :) :) :) :) :)
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 :)
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
@AnotherProGamer: The Wing Commander series.
And Privateer series
...my work is done here. JENKINS!!!! My hat and coat! This stout fellow has things covered.
@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
steam is so cheap it sometimes feels like pirating
So true,now i know why Console only fanboys call us pirates so much... they mistake our uncontested steam sales.
and console gamers buy games used to save $5 over full price... lol!
Actually, PS+'s sales are starting to catch up to Steam here lately. Not there yet, but making good strides in that direction.
@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.
That's true, they do.
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?
I guess you didn't notice the /s for sarcasm.
so many stupid people falled for this, omg.
So many jealous console gamers, omg.
it will be on next gen also....
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.
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
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
and it has a long, lengthy single player offline campaign called squadron42 with atleast 60mission on it and lots of star system to discover
they better put that money towards hiring a bigger team
Starlancer was another one his games.
I hope for the sake of all who funded that this game lives up to expectations.
