    They're still sending out carrots to sucker people in with no set completion date eh?

    At this point this game should be renamed the Roberts welfare program.

    How many yachts does Chris Roberts own now? Can't believe the flak the community gave the No Man's Sky developers while this scam is still firing on all cylinders.

    Not going to neg the deal since it's not really a bad post, but for Christ's sake, I wish people would stop giving this man money.

    I was one of the original backers many years ago. This is by far the most expensive game I've paid for and never played. Bought a few many ships at the time too, totaling…. US$450.

    At the time I didn't have any kids, but now have two of them such that gaming for me is only a few hours (disjointed - stop / start) at most per day.

    This post has reminded me to go find a forum to sell those first backer ships.

    • I wasnt a backer but bought one ship years ago. (profanity) Roberts.

  • Great post OP.

    This is a really fun game to try out for free with friends.

    The game itself is alright at $40 USD, but mainly needs server fixes and you have half a game there to play.

    For anyone attending the free fly, I really recommend the FPS missions since the in game guns are absolutely amazing fun to use.

    Man, by the time this comes out, my “ Hardcover copy of 'The Making of Star Citizen' including loads of behind the scenes images and info, prelim concept art, development stories” is going to be a mighty tome.

      Does it add +1 Intelligence or +1 OzBargainer if I consume it?

  • Tried a free weekend, got thoroughly confused as to how to even sign up, got thoroughly confused where to go once in-game, got thoroughly confused how even launch a ship, then finally gave up after accidentally activating the ejector seat whilst still in the hanger and unable to work out how to reset it.

    And I thought EVE Online had a steep learning curve.
