My new blog is going live in the AM. It was finished but at the last minute, something came up that legal needed me to source.Once you read it, you’ll see why.
By the time I got around to doing that, it was already late and I was busy with other things.
The blog will go live at this link tomorrow morning at 10AM EST

Some Dude: Personally, I think Chris Roberts and Ben Lesnick talk a lot of shit. They are well known for saying LTI is not significant and bringing LTI back over and over.
I don’t see how Chris Roberts can act like a badass game developer when his last game Freelancer was a failure for Microsoft.
Arena Commander is a half assed buggy piece of shit. It is even more shit thanks to interactive mode.
I want my refund, and CIG is not giving it.
Did you know? Steam offers refunds “if the request is made within fourteen days of purchase, and the title has been played for less than two hours. There are more details below, but even if you fall outside of the refund rules we’ve described, you can ask for a refund anyway and we’ll take a look.” Steam is a lot nicer than CIG is. They also have qualified employees handling customer support.
If you are 1 of the 100 that review bombed Derek’s game, and then got a full refund, that really just makes you a hypocrite.
Edit: It looks like the post I replied to is gone. I was having fun.November 4, 2015 at 4:13 pm #1580
Hey didn’t I just write a blog about Sandi sourcing cheap materials from China?
Well, some guy ordered a mug. It just arrived:November 4, 2015 at 2:54 pm #1572
Joao: The arrogance of man is to think that the world revolves around them or for their benefit.
And if you missed my comment in the other forum thread about lawsuits, you should probably go read it.
Clearly you have reading comprehension issues because I’m not sure how anyone – with fully functioning brain – will read the blog and come away thinking that I was accusing them of money laundering. Nice try.
The rest of your missive is not worth responding to. Just remember the rules, keep it clean or your posts get deleted and you IP banned. My house, my rules. Take that anti-social abusive shit to Reddit.November 4, 2015 at 3:17 pm #1577QuasiParticipant
Hey now, soon you won’t be able to say they are just JPEG ships. Soon you might be able to get a physical version of the Hornet! Thing is though, this will give CIG a slight cash infusion since the Lego Group pays royalties and licensing for these sets.
Also, great work on tracking down the Swedish Mafia connections. I remember posting some speculation in one of your previous blogs that the Chris’ Hollywood connections might involve some shady folks. Apparently the rabbit hole went deeper than I could have imagined. It also makes the whole endeavor look more and more like a straight up scam as opposed to the “accidental” scam it was believed to be when all this started.
Hollywood has been a haven for money laundering and gray-area tax evading/sheltering for a while now (not to mention the child molestation). To see this creeping in to the video game industry is highly worrying. Stopping this bullshit is no longer just about one game that may or not ever come out, it is about preventing the video game industry from becoming a hub for downright criminal activity.November 4, 2015 at 3:15 pm #1576
I agree with you A R.
I am no longer willing to contribute anything to crowdfunding. Derek was dead-on months ago when he mentioned SC would drastically affect video game crowdfunding.
Also this forum is much easier to use than the blog comment system.November 4, 2015 at 3:05 pm #1575
I hope that our comments will convince others to get their refunds, if they want it. Or give outsiders a chance to see what people cannot say on reddit or the official forums.November 4, 2015 at 3:01 pm #1574
“One way or the other, the manipulation needs to stop. We’re talking about real money, Real investments. Its not a game.”
If you want to be guaranteed impartial with the above line, you should have written it as “One way or the other, the manipulation by Chris Roberts and Derek Smart needs to stop. We’re talking about real money, Real investments. Its not a game.”
That revision is more neutral sounding.
As for me, I’d like my refund asap instead of a lawsuit.November 4, 2015 at 2:56 pm #1573
Yeah, blog comments are disabled. Which is why this forum was installed instead.
I am actually going to write that blog; after I finish the White Knights one that I am working on.
And yeah, Battlescape is struggling. Also, Lord Of Rigel didn’t fund either. Got the notice earlier today.
