Read this thread and then I immediately start regretting dropping 2500$ into it.
What if it doesn't even make it to the shelfs..?

Wish I wasn't so gosh darn easy to convince about stuff.. >.<

I do have my own fleet now though, so I've got that going for me, which is nice.

Don't be stuck in the past. This game doesn't have nearly the amount of bugs or problems at start up and it has lots more things to do. Plus, it doesn't suck. I don't think people know what "sucks" means. Flat out, completely and utterly hopeless as a game that has bugs every single place you go, is completely unplayable, has no clear story, crashes and nobody ever plays it.

Come now, I wouldn't worry too much if I were you; have some faith in Chris and his team.

Personally, I don't think the $1.200 I pledged for this project were unwarranted; I don't regret it and still am thrilled about the prospect of the next Wing Commander!

Maybe one day it will even offer the freedom to play it.

That would be SimCity.

TOR is more like a beige Corolla. It's does the job, but not in a particularly exciting way.

If that Beige Corolla is your first car though, it's the most exciting car you've driven.

Which is kinda the reason why TOR is still chuggin along.

Hahaha... I wouldn't count on that, friend.

Chris Roberts has made it clear from the beginning that he does not like the common payment systems most of the current MMO's use, and that he will take a different approach. In essence this means, Star Citizen will be a "pay once to play on as many computers you like, as long as you like" game. It will never be a subscription game, and most certainly never a free-to-play game, since that one-time payment will remain the main source of income for the game. And apart from the game, the only thing you'll be able to buy with real cash is UEC (=credits), so no cash-cow-shop ingame either, sorry.

And if you wonder if he'll be able to resist the urge of his publisher to completely forfeit f2p -- surprise, he doesn't need a publisher, so there'll be no one interfering with this.

I am counting on it as much as I am counting on the WoD MMO ever becoming a reality: not at all.

If it doesn't eventually have a F2P option, I certainly will not try it. I'm not going to pay money to play a game I've never played.

What are the differences in terms of Galaxy and Economic (mining, trading) between Star Citizen and ELITE: Dangerous??
