Free Space: Star Citizen Safe From Oculus-Style Sale

These are uncertain times. Oculus Rift got purchased by Facebook, and let's face it: anyone could be next. You are probably cowering under some form of social-media-proof mountain outcropping as we speak. There really is precedent in Oculus' actions, though. A large-scale Kickstarter project opted to pick the path of least less independence. And they gained a lot by doing so. One company that won't be…

Star Citizen Dev Team 200-Strong, Dogfighting In April

Is it already time for more Star Citizen news here on Rock Citizen Stargun? My my, what a total and completely unexpected shock. For real, though, Chris Roberts has lifted his company's space-age, radiation-proof hood to reveal some rather interesting info, so let's talk about Wing Commander's $40 million little brother again, shall we? Today we have two orders of business: Star Citizen's dev team…

Star Citizen’s Biggest Goal Yet: A Procedural Gen Team

Star Citizen is going to be colossal. That was never in question. Then it became even more not in question with the crowdfunded additions of everything from first-person combat to facial capture tech to a collaboration with Kingdom Come to probably, like, the virtually reanimated consciousness of Chris Roberts himself, a beaming face of ceaseless encouragement winking at you from the stars. But those are…

Space Team: Kingdom Come And Star Citizen Collaborating

But not on a version of the delightful mobile game Space Team. Sometimes my headlines get away from me, take on lives of their own, and begin pulling nefarious pranks on innocent passersby. I apologize. I blame the public schooling system. But anyway, the two members of Kickstarter's Might As Well Be Triple-A contingent, Star Citizen and Kingdom Come: Deliverance, are joining forces to sensually…

Warpdrive Disengage: Star Citizen Dogfighting Delayed

I suppose we should've seen this coming. Between the launch of multiple satellite studios and a big, fat hint that this exact thing would happen from Chris Roberts himself, it was pretty much telegraphed via the medium of outer space hyper-com laser beam ("Communication so effective it kills, serving the public since 2873"). Star Citizen's dogfighting module has been delayed by multiple months in the name of…

Star Citizen Smashes $31m, Squadron 42 Enhanced

As surely as the Earth keeps on spinning and the sun looms precariously, waiting for the day when our brittle atmosphere crumbles away so it can boil us all into bleeding scabs that scar the planet's skin, Star Citizen keeps on pulling in millions of dollars. It's now jumped all the way past the $31 million mark, which means a) Star Citizen gets an "interstellar…

Star Citizen Will ‘NEVER’ Be Dumbed Down For Consoles

Everyone, you might want to brace yourselves. The Internet finally pushed Chris Roberts too far, and he broke out the capital letters to set every last record straight. Are you worried that Star Citizen might eventually make a lightspeed jump to consoles and somehow compromise its sun, moon, and stars-eclipsing vision in the process? Well, FUCKING STOP IT. He didn't actually say that, but I'm a…

Chris Roberts Details Squadron 42, Takes On Doubters

Star Citizen this, Star Citizen that. It's in the news significantly more often than any real space program, and it's probably better funded at this point too. Personally, I still can't help but question Chris Roberts' and co's ability to pull it off, but I'm now much less doubtful that their aspirations are sincere. I recently lobbed all the skepticism I could at each of…

Star Citizen Has All Your Money, Alpha Test Expands

How much of your money would you give to a crowdfunding project that aims to go to actual space, because it seems a lot of you like it out there an awful lot. Star Citizen, the crowdfunded game from Wing Commander Chris Roberts, just hit $25 million in gathered funds. For those keeping track, that means it's made $1 million extra in just the past…

Star Citizen Will Apparently Look This Good On Your PC

Things! Thing the first: I just realized that Star Citizen's universe is entirely terrifying. The latest trailer (which looks not-of-this-world pretty, but we'll get to that in a second) depicts a star battle for the ages. Laser fire singes and sears, asteroids burst like burnt popcorn kernels, men die. And then, final, silent screams of his fallen foes still ringing in his memory, our intrepid hero…

Space Face: Star Citizen Passes $22m, Gets Car Commercial

By the time Star Citizen finally launches, I fully expect that Roberts Space Industries will have crossed its last, $100,000,000,000,000 stretch goal: drop the facade, become a real intergalactic government, and colonize space. Crowdfunding has been absurdly kind to Chris Roberts' massively ambitious endeavor, and the black hole that gobbles up all money doesn't seem destined to smack its lips and say, "Oh, that's quite enough…

Star Citizen Smashes $20m, Adding First-Person Combat

Quantum Hyper Nebular Solar Roman Numeraled News FLASH: Star Citizen has made money. This probably comes as a complete and utter SHOCK to all of you, especially those who contributed everything they owned and also a half-eaten sandwich they FOUND with barely any mold on it to Chris Roberts' cause. And so, SOMEHOW, the interstellar cash train keeps on chugging along, this time to the…

It Burns Brightly: Star Citizen ‘Sizzle’ Trailer

I have a theory about Star Citizen. I just watched the new trailer, a so-called 'Sizzle Reel', and was obviously impressed. Nothing about this game has been a graphical let-down. Not. One. Thing. Here's my theory: it needs so many graphics that Chris Roberts has had to go back and borrow polygons from his old games. Seems like utter drivel nonsense idiocy, yeah? Well I…

Star Citizen’s $20m Goal: First-Person Combat

Star Citizen just crowd-sourced a million bucks in about a week, and they're up over $18m now, which unlocks "exclusive" starting star systems for backers. What does this money pile mean for this colossally ambitious beast of a game as a whole? Well, Chairman Roberts explains that it means it's going to be even more ambitious: "First person combat on select lawless planets. Don’t just…

Engines ‘Ere: Star Citizen Hangar Module Is Out

The RPS style guide prohibits me from altering the font siz (and it also suggests wearing socks with sandals, so I think John wrote it), so when I say "it's a big if" at the end of this paragraph, please imagine a whopping 72 point '"if", in bold, italicized and possibly blinking. The Star Citizen Hangar Module is out now, space fans. It's the first…

Wing Bystander: Star Citizen (Kinda) Playable Next Week

Are you ready to leave your boring old terrestrial life behind and start anew among the stars? Well soon, you'll be able to, but only in the "broke college grad" sense where you take refuge in a garage while selling superfluous organs to pay off loans. OK, I may have read a little too far between the lines on that last part, but Star Citizen's…

Chris Roberts Explains Star Citizen’s Economy

Well, he explains what he intends to happen in Star Citizen's living economy, at least. Whether it will work quite like this, we shall have to wait and see. Basically: the economy actually works you'd expect, meaning that if a factory requires raw materials to produce stuff, then it produces a mission for that requirement. It's a mission that either the player or AI could…

Star Citizen Certainly Has Some Spacecrafting

You can tell when the RPS readership is genuinely excited about something, because the "Hey, have you seen..." emails to our mailboxes spike. They've done this repeatedly for one particular space game. The most recent livestream of Star Citizen's creation showed us frankly Too Much Information about the building of spacecraft for the mega-crowdfunded game, but it's worth focusing in on a ten-minute fragment (below)…

Star Citizen Advertises Imaginary Spaceships

Hey, are you in the market for a spaceship? Then you will want one that goes fast! Like this one! It's sleek and shiny and will impress your neighbours. Well, if they end up playing mega-crowd funded space game Star Citizen, anyway, which is where it can currently be pre-ordered with insurance for its inevitable destruction at the business end of space weapons. This trailer…

Chris Roberts On Life After Crowdfunding, Games Vs Film

Star Citizen has made $8 million thanks to the contributions of generously wistful wing commanders like you. That's so much money that, if you broke it down into individual bills and wrapped it around the Earth, you'd have wrapped $8 million around the Earth. And while Chris Roberts obviously had high hopes for his galaxy-sized baby, even he wasn't expecting to drum up this level…
