Star Citizen’s Roberts talks FPS, pokes fun at EA

Star Citizen

Did you miss PAX East this year? If so you probably also missed Chris RobertsStar Citizen presentation. Fortunately, though, there’s YouTube. The video runs for approximately 45 minutes, and as its title implies, it focuses chiefly on the evolution of the sci-fi space sim’s first person universe.

Over the course of the presentation, Roberts also touches on the game’s new damage state system, the Retaliator spacecraft, and the new build of Arena Commander, which features multiplayer free flight.

He also pokes fun at publisher EA with an in-universe bit about a former gaming giant named Electronic Access that was bought out and shut down by Original Systems. The Star Citizen version of EA is now “little more than the branding for Original Systems’ electronic rental storefront,” which in game terms equates to the recently announced rental equipment credits (REC) added to Arena Commander as a form of progression. Click past the cut to watch the full clip.

It sounds to me like you are describing Asperger’s Syndrome.
And I can say as much as that I have been diagnosed with that myself approximately 20 years ago.

And 5-6 years ago I lost a good friend due to some very unfortunate misunderstandings and the actions of others again who had no understanding of the situation and went so far as to root around in my private things to find something they could use against me.

But one thing I have never done is give up hope that I could manage to regain that lost friendship, and have gone to great lengths to try and find a way to so.
Because in my opinion giving up is the same as admitting that the others were right about me, something I will never accept.

So I know full well just how difficult it can be to live with a condition like that and always have people misunderstand me and see me as something I’m not, just because I don’t fit some arbitrary standard for normal.

I have only recently been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. It has helped to explain a lifetime of struggling to interact with people and being constantly misunderstood. This has been a classic example of that.

I had originally written so much more to try and explain myself and answer each point you raised, but frankly I regret ever attempting to interact and just want to withdraw from this now.

I will delete my attempt at interaction and go back to isolation, because frankly human beings are shitty hostile and upsetting.

Project54 Darkwalker75 Mydian13 rioinsignia I don’t know why your pposts were deleted. They can be so heavy handed sometime. but to answer your question. Yes, I do think your opinion is worth less than mine in this situation. There are probably a number of situation where you’re is worth more than mine though. In general I like to think my opinion is the most important opinion until I run into another that tests it or I respect more, which happens a lot. I think it’s always bet to go into a situation with confidence unless it’s a pleas for knowledge.
And it’s not that you spoke. By all means have an opinion. I love a rousing debate about the color of bananas. But your main point was that there are too many articles and too much information and I kinda think that is a non starter because I don’t believe such a thing exists. I would be open to even more information. I tthink it’s up to an individual to monitor their own intake. YOur request it seemed was to limit everyone’s intake and that was completely wrong in my eyes.
But I probably came harder than I should have. My apologies for that.

Mydian13 You know I did apologize and gave you the chance to accept. Yet you continue to make snide remarks to me which have no basis in this thread. Once again I’m informing you not to make assumptions. I don’t even live in a residence with a basement! stop trolling because I can respond to your asinine comments all day, because you’re making it easy. So if you wanna save any face in this discussion, I suggest you accept my apology and move on.

Craywulf Mydian13 TL;DR you really need to get out of the basement.. your wall of text just proves my point.

Intentions and actions are two very different things
You may have intended to express and opinion as you say, but you sounded very much like you were just complaining about them posting an article about SC as if it was somehow their fault for not posting about something you like.

I think rioinsignia  said it quite eloquently above.

No other game, finished or otherwise releases anywhere near as much information about their games as SC does, that’s why it gets so much coverage because there is so much to talk about.
If you want them to cover something make a suggestion, they actually do listen if you do.

But they don’t know what you like or what you want to see more about unless you tell them.
And trying to blame MOP for posting about something you don’t like and not about something you like when you cant even bother to tell them what you want to see more of, is just going to get people to treat you like a troll.

This may be hard for you to believe, but I’m actually not trying to attack you here, I’m trying to help you by pointing out how you should not do this.

Well I have seen crazier things, and I’m sure you have as well, such as manez?
But still its something I’ll just never be able to wrap my head around.

Darkwalker75 GoJammit It’s really the craziest thing I’ve seen besides that dope Kataq on that other article. Somehow I am abl e to barely take notice of things I don’t care about on this site and gravitate to the things i like. The unmitigated gall to suggest that they show less news on a topic because he doesn’t like it. (><)
