    Download them in HD and watch them on your TV. It looks amazing, and they look like actual commercials.

    After actually watching the three trailers.....

    Now I know why SC hasn't fracking released yet. They are making every possible genre in the same brand name. These guys aren't coding gods (they don't have Josh Parnell), they just have lots of money. Can I get a space sim already? Lol.

    Anyway. From an outsider PoV, I'm just waiting for release, so I can listen to the reviews and shake my head at the antics. :D

    It's not going to be finished (or even close to it) until the funding stops coming in.

    Promise more features that you deliver later for more money now. They have a good business model, but it'll fail when they run out of creep for their massive feature-creep.

    They may have established individuals but they're not an established studio, and I feel name-recognition, nostalgia, and baying to the PC master race crowd is what drove this.
    I mean compare to Uber - a small studio with a fair few notable names from the large-scale RTS scene and only two questionably successful games behind them. They put up a Kickstarter for a TA-like and suddenly get massive amounts of money. And for a game that's concept is simply just "TA with planets".
    Star Citizen feels FAR too ambitious, and while they keep putting out high-quality cinematics and STILL announce new features, I beg to ask why it's been SO long with SO little progress, and such a slanted focus on visuals. If it ever does come out, I feel like it'll just be a bloated mess. I mean I'd LOVE a game like this, and I SHOULD be excited for it, but I just can't.

    The "About Us" page has an entire paragraph of stroking Chris Robert's boner.

    That'd be because CR founded the company. Rule 34.

    Building your company's rep based on one person I've never heard of doesn't sell a game to me, I'm sorry.

    Liking something involves an ability to see the problems and potential improvements in it.

    All those pixels and the game still won't be as detailed as Dwarf Fortress.
