    What is that?
    As i cant speak the language the site is displayed in i am afraid to click shit. Is this some friendly advice or a notice fo something cool, or just a plain advertisement?

    Its advice. And it appears to be german.

    I just reasoned my way through it.

    IE: Pretty sure "komentáre" is comments and thus the one below it is usually downloads or what they wrote "návštevy"

    you know i cant help but feel that epic dread that this will turn out just like TOR did... all hype and the substance will no be enough for a good 80% and it will fall by the wayside i hope not it souds GREAT a space sim that is REALLY full space with full immersion to go with it.


    i just cant help but see it go the way of TOR though

    As to star citizen.
    I am buying the 40 dollar alpha access for xmass for myself. I too have fears.
    But if it is awesome you fuckin know I am going to be shouting it from the roof tops.
    I can't wait till 2014 to figure out of its going to change the world. (well, my world)

    I spent $2.50 on space pirates and zombies from steam. It might be the space you are looking for. It's free flight...but it's top down only.

    Though seriously if you like space games, you will probably like it. One of the cooler indie games. It's very repetitive, but gets a lot deeper game play once you get deeper in with more ships and different ways to customize.

    I will say that I am missing my old joystick while playing these games. mouse is just mediocre. I need a new one that uses a USB. Probably will pick one up for xmass in addition to the merc starcitizen pack.

    I haven't used a joystick setup in a long long long time. In fact I think my joystick is from the 90s. I really need to upgrade my stuff before this starts. Has anyone tested any of the logitech flight sim setups with the throttle and pedals? Just wondering if its worth the price. Who else was tempted btw to drop 15k on the commander package?:P I ended up going with the 125 buck wingnut package. Gets me a dogfighting ship, Colonel title, map, booklet, manual, bunch of other crap along with of course alpha and beta testing access. And yes I'm going to play with the usb stick that comes in the shape of the ship and make sploding sounds!
    I do have high hopes for this game, but I don't think it will be anything close to as disappointing as swtor has been. Roberts seems to actually care about the gamers and the game itself rather than turning a massive profit. I love that he is giving the finger to all the major publishers and doing his own thing. The recent videos he released a couple weeks ago had me watching with my mouth wide open. Looks absolutely magnificent. Can hardly wait to start finding all the bugs so that by the time it launches it is epic.
