    I would describe Star Citizen as a "space-themed feature-creep-'em-up" myself :D

    Hasn't Squadron 42 existed as a separate title from Star Citizen for quite a long time now?

    I mean... It still doesn't exist now, outside a couple of teaser videos.

    Haha, yes, "exist" was the wrong word. What I meant was "hasn't it been the intention for SQ42 to be a standalone title for quite some time now?"

    Squadron 42 was the game originally kickstarted. Star Citizen is pure feature creep from there.

    Utter bollocks. SQ42 was originally a single-player variant of Star Citizxen, that was later broken out into a seperate game. This can be seen not only on the Kickstarter, but on the orignal direct crowdfunding website that pre-dated the kickstarter.

    Just how much more money do they need? Once upon a time I was really looking forward to Star Citizen. I was in awe on how much RSI said contributors were paying to back the game... but at the same time, I wasn't about to drop that kind of money into getting the game started. Still no official release after all these years? Meh... will continue to pass on this one.

    Pretty sure it makes more financial sense never to finish these games? Just leave them in perpetual limbo so that folks can keep paying obscene amounts for reasons unknown.
