Sentinels News

Certainly a game can be built to do everything.  But can a game do everything well?  With limited budgets and producer driven deadlines, game developers these days are driven to keep that scope tight.  Not so with Star Citizen it seems.  The game release is still year away by anyones reckoning and to date Chris Roberts and company have raised OVER $70 MILLION in crowd funding.  Further it's Chris's baby and he answers to no one except the masses of gamers that have invested in the game.  So given that, what we have here is a space sim to become absorbed in for the long haul.  It has the immense scope of EvE with coupled with the state of the art game mechanics we are looking for.

So here is a little video montage, rendered with actual game play and game assets, on what you will be able to do in Star Citizen.  Crank up the vid quality, sit back, relax, and check out this game that promises to have something for everyone.

Drakkenfel I have had a friend at work telling me of the development progress since Feb 2014. It sounds very enticing.
Ultima Yeah I mean it looks interesting. Just not sure if I want to follow a game that may or may not succeed for a year or mor ...

Are you ready to get your hands dirty, fellow Sentinels?  Well Spring is upon us and The Vanduul await!  Star Citizen may still be in its infancy stage but that doesn't mean we can't get in some practice flying ships around and blowing things up (hopefully not ourselves!).  Every weekend evening in March, April, and May, you will be able to find someone to play with in our Mumble Star Citizen channel (even if its just me cool).  If you haven't played before or aren't quite sure how to get started - no problem!   Now is a great time to get your feet wet.

To begin with, matches will be strictly cooperative fights against the Vanduul AI as well as some racing maps where we can practice not crashing into things...  as often (a bucket full of laughs).  Later on in April, CIG will be releasing the first alpha of their first person shooter mechanics, which means we may be diving into that once it's ready.  I'm really excited to see it come out since it will also be featuring zero gravity maneuvering with 'miniature tractor beams' that you can use to launch and propel yourself around objects.

All you need to join in is a game package with an Alpha Pass.  You can get one for $45- includes the full game on release, a starter ship, and the Arena Commander alpha pass.  Don't worry if you don't have the best top of the line fighting ship, half of them aren't even finished/balanced yet anyway!

So feel free to join me in some early Star Citizen gaming!

Lately I have been talking about game mechanics that bode well for long term play.  And generally those mechanics center around an objective based PvP endgame where players generate the story and content based on their actions.  So my mate Lumpygravy turned me on to this upcoming game and ya, it looks interesting.  Read on to find out why ...

Let's start with the basics and those mechanics that caught my eye and encouraged me to explore further ...
