The crowdfunding campaign for Star Citizen recently enjoyed its biggest day ever, with the game's backers adding almost $3.5 million in 24 hours to the mind-boggling $644 million total.
If Starfield had this budget, Bethesda would have spent it all on a live action trailer and some cheap plastic trinkets to sell.
You are so toxic, if all you can do is throw shade at anything Xbox on an article that has nothing to do with them. You must dream, eat and think Xbox all day.
I'm more like a sports fan that likes the back and forth. I don't take this stuff as seriously as your comment or possibly you, but it's too difficult to assume what someone is like based on videogame forum comments. Nevertheless, if this is your way of enjoying the back and forth, then I look forward to playing forum fanatic with you.
It’s just that your actions say differently. I’ve noticed you love to bring up Xbox on unrelated articles, especially if it’s something negative about Sony. I guess it’s your way of deflecting from what the article is about. But ultimately to each their own.
Lives rent free in his little head. The most negative person but I've noticed they aren't even team blue either, they're just completely negative.
It's all good. I'm having fun here. I would suggest if this isn't fun for you, then it might not be healthy.
Doesn't take it seriously but you spend most of your time on here talking about xbox?
It's called fun. I do this to pass the time. It's relaxing to me and cathartic and I like games. I find it strange that every habitual action must be serious to DankSinatra... This has got to be taxing.
Just like I find it strange that your spare time fun is raging over a brand... going through your comments history really shows the amount of free time you have lol Talk about taxing lmao
With all the crowdfunding and development that’s went into this game it should be a 10/10.
Probably won't be, but will probably be quite impressive techwise. Allready is, but tech and good gamedesign isn't the same.
They probably saved some money to buy those 10s.
it'll never finish development. that's the thing.
Goes to prove just how many suckers are out there that are easily seperated from their money. Imagine funding a game that is designed to never ever leave beta lol This is why Gacha games are hugely successful, fools outnumber us all. Scam Citizen will reach 1 Trillion in funding over time im sure.
Comments like this go to prove how people can start typing without connecting their fingers to the brain, without knowing a single thing about game development, the industry, or marketing. People aren't "easily separated from their money." If you think they are, why don't you give it a try? Don't you want money? Show us how good you are at it. If people are so "easily separated from their money" why aren't other developers managing to replicate this? Should be "easy" right? Here's what "separating people from their money" requires in Star Citizen's case: 1: a developer who has built a reputation through making some really fantastic games. The Wing Commander series is one of the best ever. 2: That developer presenting a project that happens to be something that many people want and that traditional game publishers aren't giving because it's too risky, they erroneously think it won't make enough money, or too ambitious. 3: That developer being willing to put in an initial investment of millions of dollars of his own personal money. 4: That developer managing to sustain the initial pitch by creating something genuinely impressive, including technology and features that literally no other game has. 5: That developer literally putting together several development studios with some of the best talent in the industry, delivering a playable alpha version that is good enough to keep hundreds of thousands of people entertained for years. Doesn't look that easy to me, but by all means, show us how it's done. 🤣 PS: Since you run your mouth about gacha games, you should probably realize that making a *successful* gacha game is extremely challenging, that's why the vast majority, even by massive publishers, close within 6 months to a year.
So, how much did you "invest"
@purple101: Less than the price of a collector's edition of any normal AAA game. And I've already gotten more fun out of it than 99% of other games I've ever purchased. I'll call that a win. Of course, some people are incapable of understanding that people who have "invested" in this project have much better visibility on it, so they know what they're talking about, unlike those who bash it on social media but have never touched it 😂
You should just ignore the comments dude. Keep posting, I like to keep up with how this game is going. Great to see its development and how far the pinnacle of gaming technology will go. This is the only way to achieve it. I'm sure there are many hard-core gamers actually interested in gaming. Just ignore the standards on n4g and let them get back to flailing over which bread and butter console exclusive of the month makes sony better than ms
The game was announced in 2012, were almost in 2024. Yet, CloudImperium is still asking for money with only alpha builds to show. Technically it looks good, but where this so called game that has has amassed so much in donations?
@Angyobangyo You can play the game right now, though it is still in alpha state. I've played it on one of the free trial days. It's definitely not a game for casuals, but the game's tech is very impressive. It seems to be getting some major updates soon also. https://www.youtube.com/wat... squadron 42 video https://www.youtube.com/wat... squadron 42 is supposed to be between 40 -100 hours long
one day the grandkids of all the backers will be able to enjoy the full, released game.
Hope they release the single player in 2025 or before.
These articles are just as bad and spammy as the "how to" articles. Who actually gives a crap about this games crowdfunding?
Well..14 comments already. Thats 14 more than actually the most well written game reviews with over 1000 words and many work hours have. Sadly.
It's mostly just people complaining about this game. These articles are baity, otherwise no one would bother clicking to comment. Plus whatever good is actually uploaded is buried under crap like this.
Looks like a lot of people "give a crap," including you. Crowdfunding is a massive phenomenon in the gaming industry, pretty much one of the biggest revolutions of the past 15 years, and Star Citizen is by far the most successful gaming project in the space. If you don't understand that the massive support this game is getting from gamers is very newsworthy, you literally don't know what "newsworthy" means. 😂 I'll give you a hint to help you out. "Newsworthy" doesn't mean "something I like to read about."
I don't care about this game, don't confuse my talking about spammy articles to caring about the content in em cause going into the n4g comment section doesn't mean I bother clicking on the article itself. There's nothing newsworthy about this games financial situation, you spam the site with every crowdfunding goal reached as if that's info absolutely needed to be known. Every single comment here is just egging on the game, no one actually cares. You're the only one that simps for this game. Rather than talking about it's crowdfunding why not write about its features that are added, you know something actually informative, something that would get people to see it in a better light.
@Inverno: The content of your comments is not very relevant, you obviously care enough to comment. Your opinion on whether this is newsworthy is irrelevant. It simply is. And if you think I don't "write about the features that are added" to Star Citizen you missed 99% of my articles that are posted on this site. Perhaps you should simply pay more attention. Here's another hint. Start here: https://n4g.com/channel/sta... Lemme know when you're ready to say "I was wrong, sorry about that."
Scrolling through the list I see most of the things uploaded about crowdfunding come from you, and they're all filled with negative comments. Most of the non crowdfunding stuff is uploaded by other people, and a lot of these have basically no comments. Shows how much people actually care, which is to say they don't care much besides bashing on the game. Also my opinion on what's newsworthy is very much relevant, I'm the potential reader. Don't be so full of yourself, kid.
