    What's the problem? It will be funny in 4 years time when the craven apologists start to suggest that a 20 year development cycle is the norm and SC is only half way there!

    lol Warcraft 1 was released in 1995. Did Perkel just suggest WOW was in development since then?

    Well WoW is written in C++ and Bjarne Stroustrup started work on C++ in 1979 so actually WoW development goes back 25 years. Star Citizen is completely normal guize.

    Sure with WoW i was slightly off base but 5 years with established top tier studio is pretty fast for MMO. For most of MMOs 5 years is minimum and there are cases reaching 10 years which was my point.

    Yeah, a longer development time than WoW. More expensive than fucking SWTOR. And look at what it's produced. And you're trying to sell this as perfectly normal for the genre. Dude, do you really expect anyone to buy that? Even if you think the game is worth what people have paid into it, or that it will eventually be a finished product, you can't sit here and tell us that this is typical for the industry. You just can't, and expect to be taken seriously.

    They are making SQ42 at the same time which eats up most of their work which you forgot again.
    Secondly you again ignore that they didn't have top tier studio from start but they were like 3 people back when they started. It took them a year to finish crowdfunding campaign and get to 100+ people in 2 years.

    Me: Star Citizen is special! You can't compare it to any other video game out there!

    Also me: Cyberpunk also took forever developing and you don't complain about it!

    "mimimimi but cyberpunk isn't crowdfunded", god damnit, what did I told you? Star Citizen is special, stop comparing it to other video games!

    I don't know why you pour so much time and Sisyphean effort when you could continue beta-testing X4 Foundations.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    The funniest thing to me about this isn't even that this retard (and other retards like him) are wrong about this. The funniest thing is that they're comparing actually finished games that were entirely playable for 100s of hours of content and essentially feature complete in their Beta phase in much less time than "Star Citizen" and actually had things like "gameplay" (with things like enemies and various interacting systems), "quests", "world building" and "content" and were playable by millions of people upon release, with their Alpha Demo where they can move an object resembling a spaceship across axes in a space-like environment and some procedurally generated "planets" (that part is relatively easy and many people have done it before, it doesn't mean that you've got a game though) without anything much on them aside from walking around and believe that "Star Citizen" with its 7+ years of development comes out of that comparison looking somehow favorable. :lol: Hey at least they implemented the Macrotransaction store early on, so at least something works!

    So, who's fault is that? They promised SP and MP in the one game, then had to carve it up into bits whereby they still are barely making any progress anywhere....

    Don't tell me at this point they were a 3 man studio...Fuck, CDPR was a 2 man start up as well at one point. It's facetious to defend a studio based on the fact that at inception it was created by a handful of people.

    If anyone compares WoW to this pre-alpha garbage,he shouldn't be allowed to have free access to his money.

    "Elite Dangerous, Dual Universe and many other games were possible also thanks to the massive success of Star Citizen crowdfunding campaign and charisma of Chris Roberts."

    I mean I get it, people are excited for what this game might become, they want to support it to eventually come to fruition... but fucking hell people, stop doing acid while you wait, it might feel like it, but the progress won't go any faster.

    Hey at least people who still have something invested can be part of the class action lawsuit when it crashes and burns. So it's not quite for nothing. :D

    I saw a cool thing about this game. But it still seems a long way off and I'm not convinced they will get the most important thing right.

    Post mortem suits never yield anything for non-banks. Get in line.

    Who has played this much? I probably have 70 hours in over the last couple of years. It is so far from finished, but it also can produce pretty unique moments for sci-fi fans.

    I haven't played it but I watched a lot of videos of other people playing it. It is pretty amazing, but I am starting to see that the "ZOMG SKOPE KREEP!!!1!" comments are probably correct. What good is an FPS mini game, and huge cities, and walking around virtual planets and space stations and cantinas and all sorts of shit if there isn't any decent gameplay. It is like a walking simulator but in space. But it could be the greatest game ever if they can get some good space combat and then tie it all together in some sort of MMO-ish type way. I'll check back in 2025.
