You're right.  Not sure why I thought it was...

But it is free.

So I bought this game. I have nothing to install it on yet, but I have bought it, since Rushy mentioned the price will go up later.

Once I've moved all my important shit across to my new laptop, I intend to install Windows on this computer and give it a spin. The graphics card might be a bit of a letdown, but at least then I'll know if I like the game and if it's worth spending money on better hardware.

For whatever reason, the FES' video embedding ignores start times.

I'll see about fixing that when I have a moment.

The portion of the game available to the public is a very early alpha, so playing it won't really be a good indicator of whether or not you like the game.

I downloaded the game for free.
Played it for like an hour.
My system can't really handle it but it worked on. (with no one else around and on low)

I got bored and deleted it.

That was basically my experience, except it ran decently for me.

I don't think anyone in this thread bought Star Citizen solely for the current user experience. The key point here is that the game is fundamentally solid and will expand quickly. You either say "this is definitely a game I am going to play a lot of in the future" and buy it now, or you don't like the genre at all and never buy it.

With Star Citizen, there is almost no benefit to waiting to buy it. You'll end up paying more for a game you probably know right now you're going to play anyway.

Oh, and my referral code is STAR-4LZP-G4TL. If I finally trick you into buying this scam, Chris Roberts himself will give me virtual items. You also get $5 in credits added to your account (5000 UEC).

Mine is STAR-JF4S-5HYN, and you get the same $5 in credits whether you use Rushy's or mine. Now you get to choose which of us you like better.

Star Citizen is so powerful it made Parsifal install Windows. We did it, FES!

Just booted up Windows 10 for the first time. Now just to reinstall onto my internal SSD with legacy boot now that my licence is associated with this PC.

Scratch that. Windows mysteriously has "problems" it can't fix with my network adapter, so I can't get online. Back on OpenBSD for now.

Yeah, I got it to work by installing a driver from Dell. I have now created a Windows installation USB stick and am installing Windows to its final home on my internal SSD.

You hate Windows, and now you're installing Windows, so you'll be using Windows, which you hate.

kinda interesting

I have successfully installed Windows and configured my existing bootloader to provide it as an option. For the record, Windows is terrible. Just terrible.

Next up: Installing Star Citizen.

No, I'm suggesting you don't lurk enough.
