Man, Keiji Inafune is so bad-ass. Really looking forward to this game. I'm a PC gamer primarily, but this game made me purchase an Xbox One.

Well, I for one am excited. I also got to try the Halo demo yesterday, and I was blown away. People have to remember that tech has to be created, developed, optimized, polished, and then repolished. It takes time. This is just the very beginnings of that process [for VR and AR]. It's not going to happen overnight. For me, it was nice to see something other than Minecraft. No disrespect to that game, but I don't play it and while the demo was initially impressive back in January, being able to see and experience another IP greatly elevated HoloLens for me. I am completely onboard with it. Now it's just a matter of waiting and seeing what developers can do with it. Initially, all we're going to see are experiences. That's the way this sort of tech works. It was the same with Oculus initially.

As to the VR vs AR debate, my take is people with families will gravitate more to HoloLens and single people/introverted gamers will gravitate more toward the VR experience. Obviously I'm generalizing here, but VR not only pulls you completely into an experience, but it also pulls you away from any external processes. My wife and kids hate it when I throw on my OR DX2 because they can't interact with me at all. That may seem like a small matter to hardcore gamers, but I believe it will be a major bone of contention for the avg gamer. Whereas, I was FULLY aware of all external processes while experiencing the Halo demo. I don't know, I guess time will tell which one pulls ahead but I'm personally liking HoloLens a little better at the moment. And who knows, that may well change.

@vicsrealms: Well technically, he asked what year it was, but a pretty awesome scene nonetheless.

@kave1793: Yeah that scene is pretty special. It captures exactly what I love about vampires.

My comment (and point stands). Your most recent comment/reply does NOTHING but stress my point even moreso.


Again, you're on a Video Game Media site ATTEMPTING to what? "school" people? It seems you; unsurprisingly so; missed the part where I state that you don't know what sort of humanitarian efforts the people who pledged to the game have made. How could you? To come onto a web-site specifically about interactive entertainment in an attempt to chastise people for not spending their money on what YOU deem it ought to be spent on is comical at best and downright dysotopian at worst? Furthermore, who are you to determine what, how much, and where I spend my money? Just because YOU think funding should have stopped at $20 Million doesn't make it so.


If it bothers you soooo much and you feel this strongly about it (for the reasons you "claim") then you are definitely on the wrong platform. A video game media site is not the way to go about this because on here you sound like nothing more than a jealous d-bag. Not saying that you are, but your limited knowledge of independent game-development funding and of Star Citizen in general lets me know, or shall I say paints a very narrow picture of your motivations for writing what you wrote.


I could go into the numerous causes my wife and I give to and support, but I'm not obligated; in any way; to "prove" to YOU that I care about other things besides entertainment (especially on a website specifically about entertainment). Where I grew up and my value system is none of your business (on this kind of site no less). Is this an entertainment over-obsessed culture? Maybe, but that still doesn't give you or anyone else the right to tell someone what they ought not to be doing with their own money. How about you spend more time practicing what you preach and less time on internet entertainment sites telling people how wrong they are for spending; an unacceptable TO YOU; amount of money? Simple as that really. And you (it starts with you) need to think on THAT thoroughly.

You're on a video game media site in an article about a...; you guessed it...; video game and you're complaining about people who spend money on entertainment in general as well as this game in particular?


How do you know what humanitarian efforts each person has made or not made that supports this game? Are you serious?

Yeah that was such obvious click-bait. It did however offer both sides more objectively then I've seen so far. The thing that gets me is this notion of "...how could they spend this much on a virtual ship..". Last I checked, EVERY video game is virtual and "not real". I have yet to play one where I "owned" game assets. SMH. Still waiting for an article to focus on the development side of things and the gaming innovations that Star Citizen is pioneering.
