Well we just came away from the BAFTA LA Masterclass event with our jaws dropped and our eyes popping out like we were thrown onto the surface of mars like Arnold Schwarzenneger was or should we say Doug Quaid from Total Recall. We arrived to the Pacific Design Center and knew there was a celebration yet to ensue and it's all we can do to keep from screaming out loud "Wing Commander You Rule!”
While we sit here listening intently, it all sounds to good to be true. They want to do what with the Cry-Engine? Wait a minute we just wanted to make sure we heard you correctly? We take a big breath then ask Chris; wait a minute let me get this straight, you want a First Person Shooter that then allows you to move independently from spaceship to spaceship and also spaceship to ground and still combine that with a space simulator with a persistent universe and then you want it all to be funded by the entire gaming community on you own website with no big publisher to back you?
We catch our breath and then Chris answers back with an astounding yes, we love his confidence! Then he shows us the footage and again we can hardly wait to get signed up to be a Star Citizen and get into our Constellation class star-ship for some space and planetary exploration and many other adventures (Arrr, Avast me hearties!) We say to Chris "we can hardly wait for your space sim Mr. Roberts Sir," then he says "besides all that there is another game I want to put out before Star Citizen called Squadron 42." Which will get everyone acclimated to Star Citizen when it ships out sometime in Late 2016.
We are now basically blown away times infinity. Then he whips out the in-game video capture he is demonstrating that evening and everyone went crazy over the Star Citizen footage! Well it's been a long time since last January and everyone here has there hangars almost full. Everyone at GamingHQ are ready to get in the cockpit of our star fighters and a few of you lucky ones are at the helm of your giant star-cruiser or possibly even something quite larger!
“See you around the verse” as Chris Roberts says in a cheery and to be quite honest a giggly voice, all I know is this is Star Citizen Grand Admiral Strongneck reporting for duty Sir!
