    They can't license engine because they are using heavily moified cryengine on lumyard license. But whole multiplayer netcode tools associated with it and their whole setup.

    I am willing to bet that by the time quantum computers exist, star citizen will be fully playable and fun. That day will arrive in approximately never, of course. Quantum computers aren't real, and never will be, and neither will Star Citizen.

    But a magic computer with more logic gates than there are atoms in the universe playing a space game with more fidelity than every stereo ever sold probably would be a blast.

    Not really. What currently exist are simulations of a quantum computer. It's comp-sci cold fusion, people can describe what it is, but nobody can demonstrate it.

    I'm well aware intel and some other companies claim to have quantum computers you can rent time on. But read more about it and you'll find they're not actually quantum computers at all.

    I'd be so happy to be wrong on this though, because super duper ultra fast computers would be wonderful for gaming. And, I guess, science shit and what not. But mostly games.

    Dude, what do you mean? Star Citizen is already out, Roberts has been playing it since 2012. Dunno about fun, but I hear it's been a very rewarding experience for him.

    Imagine bragging about throwing ridiculous amounts of cash at a video game, one that even released yet. How fucking autistic… then people act surprised when companies like EA & Ubisoft pull the sort of shit they do ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    SC LEAKS

    Summary:
    - CIG internally thinks that SQ42 needs around 2 years to finish
    - CIG devs morale on SQ42 is high despite that.
    - CIG will not show anything SQ42 anytime soon.
    - Pyro mission presentation was based on SQ42 designs and how CIG aproaches SQ42. Aka more open ended missions rather than do this only in X way or you "fail" RDR2 style.
    - Nyx system won't be released same year Pyro will.
    - TOW Theaters of War (kind of battlefiend game mode) won't be out before server meshing is in. Moreover whole thing was essentially redesigned as studio which was supposed to work on it was bought by Sony. Now it will be much smaller game mode with 2-3 maps only.

    Rest is some bullcrap about coming jpegs of ships.

    Very happy to hear they're going in the direction of what they showed in the 4.0 presentation veering further into immersive sim territory. Honestly wasn't very interested in SQ42 at all before this.

    “CIG internally” also thought that they would release it in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2020.

    Mofos sure do a lot of thinking, not so much of releasing.

    Are those giant masks that people wear just for halloween or something? Because it makes the game look like a Korean MMO.

    Those were official ones. SC leaks also said before (at the start of 2020) that beta by end of 2020 is impossible goal to achieve and they CIG was to optimistic about their goals.

    "Don't trust CiG, but trust the supposed leaked info from CiG." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I guess if anyone wanted a painting of how trustworthy this fucking company is, this is it.

    More like "Trust the idiotic narrative we're going with today, never mind all the previous narratives or the fact that we'll pretend this one never happened in the near future". It's been one thing like this after another, after a while you stop feeling bad for the true believers and just wishing Chris would get to the flavor-aid portion of the cult.

    The real star citizen is right behind haley's comet I bet.

    Sounds like a far more reasonable release date.

    Hey man, whatever makes them sleep at night you know, I’m not judging.

    Actually I'm just spreading FUD on behalf of Derek Smart. He and I have been playing Star Citizen and That Which Sleeps trying to figure out ways to punish Chris Roberts for making poor Smarty look so dumb. Both, obviously, are great and existent games whose creators told no lies about them.

    I'm actually shorting the jpeg market.
