Default Star Citizen!

So has anyone here been into Star Citizen? It won't be out for another year+ but the dogfighting alpha is coming soon. Basically, it's a game where you live in a star trek like world that is focused on user skill, space flight simulation, and tons of other stuff. Also it has raised $33mil+ on crowdfunding alone

I am so damn excited for it, bought the 315i ship package. Link to get an idea of what it is is here:

Buddy has been following this from the start and is now working on a community content project with them. Art and audio last time I saw him. I'm staying of the hype train till the game ships.

Dog Fight Module comes out on Thursday next week!

I went ahead and purchased the Aurora LN package. Patiently waiting....

They've raised almost $44 mil now!

Is anybody else planning on buying an Oculus Rift? I'm considering preordering the Dev Kit 2.

I'm debating on a Dev kit 2 but i've waited this long so i'll hold out a little longer. According to the news they are expecting to get it in the stores for xmas and if thats the case than i'll buy one then.

Sure it will. Like it was supposed to come out on that Wednesday last september, and then the Monday in January...

All I want is just a simple single player sequel to Freelancer.

I've lost all hope of finding another really good game. I don't know if it is because I'm getting older, or expecting more, but I feel like the games I had back on SNES, DOS, and PS1 were way better in their time, than modern games are today.

X3 rebirth was utter junk IMO. X3 terran conflict and the one after that was very nice though. My favorite after freelancer.

This is the ****. I would have bought a ship during the kickstarter but I was out of the loop. Have a constellation now.

Do not expect this game to ship in 2014. Late 2015 is my guess at earliest retail release.

X3:TC and X3:AP are both quite excellent with some mods - the one that crunches down and consolidates stations in particular.

Ok, real orbital mechanics, thats cool. But it looks tedious, like why I played X3 for all of 4 hours and still hadnt even managed to travel to the system the single player story starts in and gave the **** up.

x3 which version?
You should get terran conflict. Do the terran plot.
Its an amazing game once you get the hang of it.

If you need help i'll help ya out. Give it a chance.

Like at this point i'd say its comparable to freelancer.

I have all of the older ones I think. I was trying to do them in chronological order. I remember reading walk thought that started with like, "ok setup all these trade routes and **** for the next 10 hours then you can afford to start the actual game."

Yeah X3 is not for the impatient, even nodded. I enjoyed it a lot once I had mods that got rid of the most ridiculously tedious parts ( like outfitting new ships - you're going to force me to fly every one individually to 3 different systems to get the equipment they need? Really? There's nobody offering a ship outfitting service in this universe? ), lack of any fleet management software, the ridiculous overhead and complexity and frame rate hit of the stock station complexes, etc.

Flyable ships and dogfighting hit Star Citizen on Thursday with the initial Alpha release. Woot!

Nah play X3 Terran Conflict first. They saw the lack of tutorials in X3 Reunion and added one in TC. It's good enough to get you started playing the game with stuff. It even goes as far as capping ships and so forth. Worth it.

Looks like X3 TC was the one I was trying to play, because I've got the X3TC for dummies book in pdf form on my computer. Really didnt help.

*I take that back, looks like I was trying to play albion prelude.

X3:TC - this is the one single game that I have spent more time playing than any other game by a magnitude of at least 5. The learning curve is steep, but once you are in it, it is that good.
