Worst thing about SC is them walking away from vr.
If you think that Star Citizen is going to launch in 2019 I have the ownership deeds to London Bridge if you want to buy them..?....They've spent all that money on beer, drugs and whores, and will continue to spend any further funds they get on beer, drugs and whores.The one thing that REALLY isn't wise to do is give a load of programmers an endless supply of cash lol
Then there's the solo developer of Starwraith 3D Games, he's put out around 13 space simulators over the last 17 years. His Evochron series has newtonian physics, trading, combat, planet landing, walking around on planets in battle mechs, ship customisation (even moving parts around in 3D), etc.
Sometimes I wonder if CIG are deliberately delaying release of Star Citizen until we've reached the Volta era of graphic card performance! Perhaps Chris Roberts got more ambitious early in development and couldn't bring himself to release a game that would run flawlessly on a GTX 980. I hope SC does end up supporting VR but, as someone mentioned earlier, they should have been working on that right now (hopefully they are, just being secretive about it).I think the game will definitely be released within a year or two but I'm amazed how youtubers like Bored Gamer are still patiently posting regular updates (maybe donations quell frustration) considering the game has gone well beyond its 2014 release date!.
and don't get me started on Sixsence!
I don't think he's a conman, it's more that he's a marketing guy with zero talent for time or financial management. He knows how to pitch a product and does generally know how to make them, the problem is there has to be an adult in the room holding the purse strings in order for anything to actually get done.
Sounds like Peter Molyneux. .....

We have had on gong conversations with the developers - my history with Elite goes back to my first review of the game on my BBC B - and visits to Acornsoft. We have discussed with EB a motion simulator version of the game, but never found the right opportunity, until recently... but we will have to leave that there!
