Anyone plan on trying out Star Citizen?

  • I have a few friends that have already bought into the game. I've been thinking about it, but I might just wait till its finished. It would help make up my mind if there are a few of you 12's out there that are going to or have already bought into the game.

  • Bought it like six months ago. Waiting for it to come out. :)

    It looks to be amazing. Seriously. The graphics are going to be insane, the polygon counts are ridiculously high and it is space combat with true Newtonian physics.

  • That's all I really needed to hear. I knew how great the game is gonna be, but mmos are better when played with friends. I have "friends" that have ships already, but these are just random guys I've met through various other games. Nothing like a fellow 12.

    If I got a cutlass, would you man the turret... Don't take that the wrong way, I know how you are wierdo. I'm torn between that and the 325a

  • Since you have stock in Apple and their iPhone go a head and upgrade to the package with the Idris Corvette. We both know you can afford it.

  • The first game play of actual space combat is out, it starts about an hour and six minutes into this Twitch stream: http://www.twitch.tv/roberts_space_ind_ch_1/b/518786962

    The graphics are freaking ridiculous. "Gorgeous" doesn't even begin to describe it.

    If you have a passion for gaming and make $300,000/year or something; why not? Is it any different than rich people who collect vintage Ferraris, or whatever?

    If I had the cash I certainly would. We are talking about substantial in game assets which would definately help your character become one of the more influential characters in the in game universe.

    I might not be able to afford it but I'll sure as hell be a turret gunner for Roland's Idris... I promise I won't mutiny in any way and steal it from you.

  • Signed up for it back in 2012, before the kickstarter. I remember hoping back then that it'd hit the 5m stretch goal but not believing it would. Man was I wrong.

  • Will people be allowed to be members of more than one organization, like in Guild Wars 2; or will you be limited to one?

    it has been recently stated that you can be members of multiple organizations, mainly because they won't have a friends list. The org system is supposed to double as your friends list.

  • Interesting. Let's make one, then!

    What do we want to call it? Those of us that have already bought it should be the ones to come up with the name. Has to be something related to the Seahawks.

    12th Man, U Mad Bro?, Seahawks, Legion of Boom, etc.

  • I just received the Organization invite - but, eek! I'm way too OCD about grammar. "Of" needs to be lowercase. Please change it and invite again. :)

  • Actually, I was poking around in the organization creation area, and it looks like only the SID is permanent; the name is not, so the "of" can probably just be changed later, hopefully. I've accepted.

    Also - whoa, did you make the organization banner? That thing looks sick.

    Yeah took me all night and all morning, plus many hashovers. I finally got it down though. I'm happy with it.

    I'll look into changing the "Of" in the Corps name.

    edit: the "of" is fixed !!!! yay !!!!

  • Excellent! That would have seriously bothered a grammar Nazi like me on a long-term ongoing basis. :)

    Nice work on the banner. Really. For those that may be curious, here it is:

    You realize Chris Roberts created Wing Commander, and that he branched off to make Star Citizen on his own because he wanted to make a Wing Commander as he was never able to working with a big studio previously, right? :) Most likely, anybody that loved any of the Wing Commander games will absolutely adore Star Citizen. Just sayin'.

    I realize that Chris Roberts created Wing Commander (a series that quickly became too overdone IMO) AND he also created the Privateer series, which was his desire to recreate Elite for a more modern PC.

    Just thought I'd mention that before you wait 2 years for Star Citizen AKA Battlecruiser 3000 part II (hopefully it won't be THAT long of a wait, but the constant delays made me think of BC3K and that's not good), there is another very intriguing option out there...
