Chris Roberts' STAR CITIZEN - Page 5

*crosses Wing Commander off list of movies to someday get around to watching*

WING COMMANDER IV: THE PRICE OF FREEDOM was the best 'movie' of the WC games.  WC: III: HEART OF THE TIGER was best 'game'.

 

Damn, now I'm tempted to play those again.  Pretty sure I've still got 'em somewhere.

While I enjoyed III and IV, the second might be the one I'm most nostalgic for.  I remember how excited I was to install the "voice pack" disk. 

 

Then again, it may also be that my computers at the time struggled with III and IV.

Oh yes. The days of FMV.

 

I don't miss them at all.

True, but there was a fluidity to the scope, integration, and transitions of the videos in those two Wing Commanders that still feels above the rest of the pack.

 

I shouldn't revisit them, probably look like garbage now.

wing commander and civilization were the reasons I got a computer and learned how to upgrade it.

Jesus, what absolute morons will fall for that?!

 

Seriously, point me in their direction. I've got a couple of bridges to sell off at super premium prices.

The "in limited quantities" is what gets these morons to dump even more money into this thing. It's truly bewildering. Reading the reddit threads on this, it definitely feels like a religious cult, the way they defend not only the property but also the blatantly underhanded sales tactics, and of course Dear Leader, Chris Roberts himself.

 

People have sunk thousands into this non-existent game.

Never underestimate the power of the sunk-cost fallacy.

Maybe I don't know enough about the game's model but surely this is going to fuck things up once / if Star Citizen releases? I've read that Roberts says the sale of ships will ensure there's no subscription required upon release, and that all ships can be earned in-game. Now, if I'm a new player going into that game, there's no way I'm going to be able to purchase that $850 ship with in-game money after a few months. Roberts knows that, if that's the case, nobody would spend real money on the things. Therefore I'm probably looking at years of grinding for that one ship. Meanwhile I'm going to be continually wiped out by people who paid $100 - $900 for their ships. I can't see myself staying around in an environment like that. Nobody would. Which means that the game's going to have a real player retention issue not long after launch. He better hope his loyal playerbase continue buying ships and equipment because nobody else is going to stick around.

This thing is going to have so much "feature creep" there'll be a funding tier to mine the asteroid belt to construct the online servers.

Not to mention a large number of these ships will require crewmates to operate effectively. Who's gonna sign on to be a redshirt on somebody else's ship?

I imagine Overlord sitting inside one of those weird Darth Vader clamshell-thingies, surrounded by monitors, plucking images and gifs off of the internet using only his force powers.

I'm starting to believe some of these motherfuckers would jump off a bridge if Roberts told them to.

I have been engaged in an ongoing debate in the hearthstone forums regarding the matchmaker being rigged in certain ways. I have been met with quite a few very well spoken and committed people who really want to shut that discussion down. 


We all remember how many 'plants' studios used in the movie forums back in the day. I think something similar goes on in the gaming industry. I imagine that people who work in community relations might be tasked with helping shape the discussion around their games on reddit and on other forums.

I'd be shocked if that weren't the case, but even so, post-purchase rationalization is pretty much one of the universal fundamental forces. All they'd really need to do is give the right people a little nudge now and then.
