Star Citizen: I’m in a Ship!

Once again late to the party, I just recently started reading up on the development of Star Citizen, the crowd-funded beta space simulator and combat game. While this game has bucked the trend and eschewed Kickstarter in favor of it’s own brand of crowd-funding started out on Kickstarter, it has nevertheless raised an unimaginable amount of money since reaching it’s original goal (somewhere in the neighborhood of $45 million at this point) and includes an incredible vision for the future. I was admittedly a little swept away by the hype, and after thinking it over for a few days, decided to go ahead and pledge to one of their tiers. The in-game footage currently available on their website looks incredible, and I am a sucker for eye-candy. As a member of the Star-Wars generation, I simply feel it is my patriotic duty to help make sure this game becomes a reality.

Of course, I am only able to access one module so far (the hanger), and walking around it made me aware that my system is woefully outdated for what this game is envisioned as. I’m hoping that some of the lag and motion blur is due to the fact that they have not gotten around to any performance improvements in the game yet (being that it’s only in testing) and not just that my GPU is behind the curve.

Anyway, here’s me walking around the hanger and showing off my new ship, the Origin 300i:

    I love the 300i! Great choice!

    I’ll definitely be upgrading my GPU, and get a good flight stick, myself.

    You can rest assured most of the times that you’re late to a party, I’m thinking: “Party? What is this party that Brax speaks of?”
