The same Chris Robert of Wing Commander and Origin fame? That is a big trip down memory lane but that brings some good memories.

So will this have the simplicity of Freelancer or will it be more like X2/3 etc?

There is still nothing IMO that beats Freelancer. I played Freelancer again a few months ago and boy its still good.

That's where I'm at. I can't get into X3 because of the occasionally extremely stupid AI. I'd guess X: Rebirth (being on a new engine instead of the same one they've used for ages) will be more intelligent, but we'll see....meanwhile, can't wait for this...despite the name. :p

I saw this earlier today and was about to commit!

But it wants me to login and I can't find where to create an account. I refuse to use the guest option.

By November 2014 I can definitely have a PC that's powerful enough to play it. Would be nice to have an option to get some of the higher tiers without the alpha and beta access at a lower price. Something like $45 for the $60 tier.

Some great information from the draft FAQ:
[quote]
[b]Is Star Citizen an MMO?[/b]
No! Star Citizen will take the best of all possible worlds, ranging from a permanent, persistent world similar to those found in MMOs to an offline, single player campaign like those found in the Wing Commander series. The game will include the option for private servers, like Freelancer, and will offer plenty of opportunities for players who are interested in modding the content. Unlike many games, none of these aspects is an afterthought: they all combine to form the core of the Star Citizen experience.

[b]How will modding work?[/b]
Players will be given full control of their game! When operating private servers, players will be able and encouraged to mod the game. It doesn

I don't know if I'll get a new PC (the i7 920 and 6870 combo is serving me well so far, who knows how long that'll last) but it'll be worthy of an upgrade at some point for it.

If Crysis 2 is any indication, then you'll need a GeForce GTX 670 or Radeon HD 7950 to run it at 60 FPS in DX11 mode with all settings maxed out (1920x1080). Star Citizen won't be out until 2014 so the performance of high-end video cards out now will shift to mid-range video cards later on.

As a PC gamer, it's frustrating when developers cater to the lowest common denominator: consoles. PC hardware is so much more capable but a lot of that power isn't being utilized. I miss the days when developers would quickly make the jump to a new version of DirectX. Now, most developers haven't made the transition to DX10/11. Almost half the users on Steam have DX11-capable systems and over 80% have DX10-capable systems.

MS caused this disaster but it's gone on way too long. DX9 had a really long run and Vista (and DX10 really) being as unpopular as it was didn't help.

But yeah, I'm sick of the wait for this transition. It's past time. Fortunately, we're seeing a hell of a lot more DX11 games this year and undoubtedly more next year. I'd expect there'll still be some high profile DX9 releases next year but nowhere near as many.

[b]Chris Roberts and Cloud Imperium have received more than $3 million in pledges for Star Citizen, and they still have ten days to go.[/b]

Wing Commander developer Chris Roberts and his new company Cloud Imperium said on Thursday that their cloud-funding efforts for the upcoming space sim for the PC, Star Citizen, has surpassed three million dollars in pledges.

According to Cloud Imperium, this is a combined number stemming from [url="http://www.robertsspaceindusries.com/"]the company's self-managed crowd funding program[/url] which has received more than 2 million pledges, and [url="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cig/star-citizen"]the Kickstarter program[/url] which has brought in more than 1 million. So far there are around 44 thousand backers, and both crowd funding projects still have another 10 days to go.

Have any games actually been made from crowd funding money? I see plenty of games getting funding but I can't think of one that has actually been made.
