I finally checked it out

I’ve avoided this game for years. But yesterday I finally typed in the Star Citizen address.

Wow that’s a lot of info to process. And ships are expensive.

I downloaded what seems to be a demo of the game. There was a PAX East code that was no longer in-use, but the SXSW code seems to have given me some free time to try the game. I just completed the download this morning and will be inspecting it soon.

The last flight sim of any type that I played was Descent Freespace. So it’s been a minute.

I’m not sure how the wife will feel if I have a stick+throttle sitting on my desk. I think she’s near her accepting limit with my big monitor and my 5.1 speakers plugged into the sound card.


#2

bro, get a better sound card, then you can’t hear her complaining. jk jk


#3

It’s not 7.1?


#4

My wife really doesn’t complain a lot. She tolerates me doing my manchild thing.

The way my workstation is set up I don’t have a good place to position the right speaker for a 7.1 setup. Although maybe that’s why my skills are declining. I need to get back in the game and reorganize.

I now have a goal for today.


#5

I feel… conflicted by calling this a manchild thing


#6

When you’re nearing 40 with two kids under 4 years old, I doubt most people’s first thoughts are how do I upgrade my command center to support a flightstick and 7.1 surround.

Also, my uber sound card only supports 5.1 anyway. But that’s ok because the wife just might draw the line at me adding a speaker on a stand to this setup. I should probably take a picture of this bedroom for you guys.


#7

lol should def do that. i wanna see that sexy sound card lol.


#8

The sexiness of the sound card can only be expressed audibly, not thru a picture.

Maybe I’ll come out of retirement and let you hear the sexiness of my League play.


#9

This should be one amazing game in the end. I have two ships on there so far, and my fiance has one. we both need to build new computers before we can enjoy this game, but it’ll be worth it.


#10

Star Citizen will be one of the best games ever created if it’s not a total quasi-scam failure.


#11

When I saw the funds for this game so far I was stunned. I had no idea a space sim could be that popular.

I’ll try playing with my 360 gamepad this week and see if I enjoy it before I commit any major cash to this game, whether that be ships or hardware. My first time playing this morning was kinda fun.


#12

I think the total number of backers isn’t rising nearly as fast as the total dollars. Which means there are a ton of die-hard fans buying quite a lot of yet-unrendered pixels over and over again. They’re not just buying one ship.


#13

I’m in the boat of “I want to buy in, but I want to see more first” because of said scam/failure fear; I’m planning to snag a modest ship for myself, @PreshusKitty, and possibly a few others once I’m confident the game will actually make good on its intentions :wink:


#14

I’m reading about the first-person shooter module that is due out soon. This is an extremely ambitious game.

I have been avoiding Star Citizen because I honestly thought it was a game in which I just wouldn’t have any interest. If they actually deliver on these things then it very well could be one of the best games ever created.


#15

This was the exact quote in my fortune cookie over the weekend…weird.


#16

I am one of those fools that have bought multiple hopes and dreams. The more ships we buy, the more devs they can hire, the faster we can play. Foolproof logic.
