Just Ranting about Star Citizen….Probably defending it too hard XD
Getting tired of seeing people complain that Star Citizen isn’t worth pre ordering. Pledging for the game isn’t pre ordering. You are helping fund the game so that they don’t have to deal with the bullshit video game developers have to deal with when being funded by publishers. You just so happen to get early access to the alphas, betas, and the full game when it becomes available if you so chose to pledge any money to it.
It’s because of people like this that don’t understand the point of alpha’s that they had to push back the release of the dogfighting module so that they could polish it more and not have people trashing the game based on the problems you are supposed to help fix in an alpha. Too many people see alphas like early access to a full mostly functioning game.
In the end. Whether or not you want to pledge to an unfinished game is up to you. For me this game is pretty damn close to my dream game so I had no problem with putting in a mere $45 at it. I didn’t just blindly throw money at it either, I did my research and based on what I found I felt comfortable with taking a chance on something like this. Since I only spent $45 it isn’t like I would have lost much if everything fails but things have been looking really good so far and they are constantly giving new info and lore on the game so hell I’d pledge more if I had the money.
They definitely interact way more with their consumers than most developers and they seem to have well defined goals as well. I also like how they are keeping some of the more recent stretch goals as things to add in later on after the full release so it’s not like they are constantly adding more onto their already large plate.
Yeah I will shut up now.
