^Little info piece just released from another Aussie backer on how to buy into SC (assuming you want to) for as little as possible.  Also, the probable best way to do it, which is only slightly more.

The Alpha 2.6 patch just dropped, and now there's a trailer for it (do yourself a favour and maximise window and rez):  

 

 

That's all in-game footage, rendered at actual play rates - not everything-maxed-and-2fps.

Man, that does look sweet! Rather unlikely to ever play, but it  sure makes a compelling argument!

If you look back to the start of this thread, you'll see I was very skeptical of this game at first. I was convinced by (that's "before", not "because of") 2.4. There are 'free fly weekend's fairly frequently, so if you want to have a look without committing, there's your chance.

Christmas sales are on ATM.

 

Edit: Added parenthetical clarification. I bought into it in October 2015, according to my records.

I actually don't tend to game much...almost never on the PC :)

Something a little different this time... This (longish) video is centred on Star Citizen, but you can take something out of this that applies to just about every game.

 

 

Yeah, I know - 27 minutes.  But I thought it was worth it, enough so to link it here.  Give it a shot.

A quick look back at progress of SC over the entirety of 2016:

 

 

Looking forward to developments for this year.

For anyone who is wondering how it's going but doesn't want to commit actual money (don't blame you), there is a "Free Fly" event on at the moment: https://robertsspace...s-Free-Fly-2017

 

You get to zoom about in multi-crew ship!  These things cost a poultice, normally, so it's a great deal.
