Wow this game is awful. I literally just started walking, then glitched through a wall, and got permastuck in the floor.

They're trying to put in way too many features instead of making the game playable. And wasting time making cinematics for new ships.

I don't think that's entirely true. Yes, this game does suffer from scope creep, but they are working on making it stable at the same time. They have a very large development team, so they can afford to work on many things at once.

If you're basing this on the demo they showed last night, you should know that that was a preview of their development code, ahead of even the features in 3.0. I wouldn't expect any game to be particularly stable that far from release.

And wasting time making cinematics for new ships.

I can't disagree that the cinematics are pointless, but again, the people making these cinematics are likely in between tasks while the devs are whittling down bugs for the 3.0 release. Not everyone at CIG has the same job.

It is most certainly, entirely true.

Today I bought a Carrack, the king of exploration vessels, for the measly sum of 350 USD.

Thanks for the microaggression, but I have successfully gotten a refund for ships in the past when I was new to Star Citizen. I know what I'm doing now.

I'm leaving for the airport to go to CitizenCon in about 6 hours. Should be a fun time.

Wait, 350 real life dollars? For a spaceship in a videogame? Are you mad?

Intel is now in on the scam. They're releasing a new model of SSD, and if you buy it, you get a limited edition ship in Star Citizen.

Last panel finished. Only the keynote left now. Yes, I know how retarded finishing with a keynote sounds, I didn't write the programme.
