Today Cloud Imperium Games released a new video of its upcoming space simulator Star Citizen. In the video, players get to take a look at two elements that are going to be implemented in the upcoming update alpha 3.5.
Welp, this isn't gonna sit well with certain members of the gaming community~!
Why are people still funding this? The game is already passed its needed funding, and it still hasnt been released. Do people just like throwing money into these guys pockets and waiting for a game that is not finished?
Why do you care what people do with their money? Doesnt effect you or me since i did not and will not add funding $'s but if someone does thats cool for them. Right?
It's become like a cult.
How much is enough? Not understanding here...
it's splitting the budget with Squadron 42. some high paid actors are going to be in it. Mark Hamil, Mark strong, Henry cavil, Gary oldman, and Gillian Anderson to name a few. new demo of Squadron 42 will be out next year.
500 million left to go... Give till it hurts boyz
No no, that's still less. I say 785 million more to go.
Good for those who are enjoying it. For those like me who don't have no interest let it go this game from what I understand is already playable This isn't a game anymore this is more of a way of living with actual politics behind the scenes from different clans
Waiting till this turns out to be the most disappointing game of 2050. Lol!
Dayum pop. How we gone survive this winter without milk at $1500 a bottle. * crowdfund smirk *
The hell? The largest budget ever for a video game was about 250 million in one of the cod games.
and that included marketing. Also GTA V and RDR2 had similar budgets
This must be the biggest con ever. Just keep promising people an amazing videogame in return for a bucket load of cash. What is the incentive to release the game when they can keep raking in the money?
I don’t get the hate from all the console only players who don’t even have a clue how this game plays. Let the target audience decide if they like it.
lol, at this stage, they'll never be able to deliver on their promises, but at least it's one of the most hilarious examples of watching a train-wreck in the making.
Let's be honest, after nearly half a decade, It's basically an overpriced, over-resourced tech demo.
Agreed with DrShoe here. It's seriously like all these videos are them just trying to say "Look at us! Look how hard we're working it's not a scam! BTW can we get another 200 mill plzzzzzzzzz?" It's getting tiresome and it really does feel like they know what a money making cow this whole thing is. I mean think about it, the minute they finish this, their biggest cash cow is gone. If I were on the dev team I'd keep milking this too if I had zero ethics. Which is exactly what they seem to be doing because it's NEVER-ENDING tech. From these videos, these dudes don't even seem like they're in any god damn hurry. You can tell....it's like they don't care to put it out EVER. It's like "oh look at this cool shit, and this cool shit, and this...BUT never the final game hehe" They also seem superrrrr whatever about the stuff they're talking about honestly. Seriously I don't care people are giving money to this and will continue to do so until 2030 (my serious belief here). But don't yank my chain in saying this game will ever actually be complete. It won't. Just admit it's a constant tech demo being paid for.
