“And in one other recent response to a backer, they are now saying that CIG is not the “correct” entity to address grievances to; that is should be RSI. This despite the fact that they only made that company liability change (it’s in my recent blog) in the latest ToS…which this person hadn’t even agreed to.”
Ha! Exactly like I predicted weeks ago in the Frontier Forums.
Next steps will be the liquidation of the shell firms associated with the “crowdfunding” and all debts with it. Then the scam is completed.June 30, 2016 at 10:50 am in reply to: Star Citizen – General Discussions #4054
Oh boy, now calling out CR for his lies https://www.gamingonlinux.com/articles/star-citizen-for-linux-is-being-held-up-by-crytek.5176/ on the Star Citizen Linux port is “trolling”.
I don’t get their forum rules, I give up.June 28, 2016 at 5:07 am in reply to: Star Citizen – General Discussions #4042
I just received an advisory/post deletion on Frontier forums for quoting PM harassment by some SC nutcase (without doxing anybody, because it doesn’t matter). They think it’s against their forum rules. I think forum rules made protect harassers are wrong and need to be changed. Harassment needs to be exposed. Yes, I know public discussion of forum moderation is against the rules either, but I don’t think this applies here.
BTW: I got called a “filthy goon”. What is this?June 14, 2016 at 3:54 pm in reply to: Star Citizen – General Discussions #3741
According to E3 rumors, AMD partnership doesn’t go that well:
AMD dude who is part the AMD game promo thing posted:
We’re partnered with them [CIG], of course. We are. It’s four months before E3 and we’re getting our PC showcase set up. We’re reaching out to get demos, sizzle reels, all kinds of different promo stuff. We hear back from a lot of people; there’s some new stuff, new games, new partners, all that. Absent is a response from CIG.
Someone else here handles all that, she’s calling and calling thinking there’s some mistake or she’s not getting through to the right people. It’s now three months until the PC Gamer showcase and there’s nothing on the table from CIG. She’s trying to set up a conf call or a face to face with CIG and there’s nothing solid set up.
She finally talks to someone over there and is assured we’ll get a slice of scripted gameplay and some cutscene stuff with the big name A listers on the project. E3 is what, six weeks away? Maybe seven at this point.
A week later what we get a package with a disc, no explanation, table of contents, nothing. On it, there’s nothing new, [its] a mashup of all their previous trailers. It’s not even cut differently. We have the Hamil one, the Oldman speech, some fighters shooting things and some FPS segments that were lifted straight out of the last con they did. They’re all just dumped into a “Promo” folder on a blu-ray.
She’s thinking this is a mistake, they sent us the wrong material — easy mistake to make, you throw in an old disc instead of the one you just cut, it got handled differently, an intern misunderstood what we wanted, whatever. So she calls them up again, no response, emails, nothing.
Two weeks later we get what is referred to around here as the “Letter.” Capital “L” letter. The email is addressed to everyone high up at AMD, not even the gaming guys but the chip designers and the heads of departments. The PDF attachment is a rambling statement from Chris about how we’re pushing him into something he doesn’t think is necessary, he has a vision and that it’s “too important” to be disrespected like this.
The decision was made to drop them from the show after that. Probably from our partnership as well, but that’s above my head.

This is basically the Squadron 42 Kickstarter pitch executed. I’m looking forward to trying it. Though in one point you are off: CoD is not an EA franchise, it’s Activision. 🙂
PS. Looks like I got another infraction of Frontier forums for mentioning CoD. The others were already discussing it. Should have made new thread instead. After that reveal I think I’m done with discussing Star Citizen “the game”.June 11, 2016 at 8:38 am in reply to: Star Citizen – General Discussions #3683
German magazine Gamestar is still advertising Star Citizen with a release date of 2016 as if nothing happend:
They even pretend, developers already have playable “PG planets”. We all know this simply isn’t true.June 6, 2016 at 7:50 am in reply to: Star Citizen – General Discussions #3623
The page has gone blank. That’s official confirmation.
With the tag thingy being in the “legacy” section, I guess a Zendesk update caught them by surprise.June 3, 2016 at 10:30 am in reply to: Star Citizen – Terms Of Service #3606
Dont’ forget “gray market” traders who never downloaded the game and aren’t really interested in video games. For them rsi.JPEG is another Bitcoin.
