    Now, to be fair. Contracting CryTek to make an engine demo for a kickstarter and a game would in no way require the engine license at that time.

    And why pay for a license before they even knew if they would get backing for the game in the kickstarter? Would you pay close to 1.8 to 2 million USD for a license before you even know if you will break even in the kickstarter? Even IF you had SOME private backing?

    ...or he might be simply nervous......but then he is a veteran of the media, worked on and finished games in the past and should be like a fish in water in such interviews
    He has all these nervous tics in his presentations because he knows his project is all fubar. He already knows DS was right , and they should have made their own engine and ditched cryengine early at least four years ago. He didn't want to admit he screwed up again like with freelancer and the money is just too good to not to keep selling the dreams. Perhaps what is envisioned for StarCitizen in its entirety of its feature creeped goals can be doable as a working mmo at least 15 or more years from now. So cig-arrets is screwed especially stuck in having to continue this ponzi or fess up to over a hundred million wasted and a plethora of expensive but ultimately useless video and media.

    Any time now. At least that is what has been said year after year.

    Wanted to say 2 weeks but the judge has *90 days to give her verdict.

    Edit: *I read it somewhere

    It won't be a 'verdict'. It will be a ruling on CIG's motion to dismiss. Not the same thing at all.

    Yeah, and going by her cancellation of the hearing last week I'm not entirely sure that GIG are going to be too happy.

    Well excuse me! Did I come across as some internet legal eagle expert. I don't give a toss what she says.

    It'll take ages, be very very boring and possibly result in an unfathomably strange outcome, or even fizzle out quietly.

    If anything exciting does happen Dr Smart will shout it from the rooftops.

    I think she might be going to say that this motion exclusively is nonsense.

    Which obviously means all motions are because it doesn't matter where words come in sentences. Covfefe.

    That goes without saying since she's going to kill it off.

    One of those moments of truth where nobody smashes the thread cos they all know it's just how it is and it isn't being nasty about it

    SC reddit traffic seems to have plummeted by a good few hundred, sadly we can't see the figures anymore but it looks like the 3.0 bubble has burst.

    It's still the same mess only with some planets that repeat a lot.
