I love a good Space combat sim but after looking into Star Citizen I have chosen not to back the game due to the lack of focus and I find it disturbing that targets promised in the original kick Starter campaign are now 8 months overdue and we still don’t have a Beta in site.. lets look at some Information from around the web:
From Kick starter :
A rich universe focused on epic space adventure, trading and dog fighting in first person.
Single Player – Offline or Online(Drop in / Drop out co-op play)
Persistent Universe (hosted by US)
Mod-able multiplayer (hosted by YOU)
No Pay to Win
$2,134,374 pledged of $500,000 goal
Estimated delivery: Nov 2014
Today, over 925,000 people have contributed more than $85 million to the project.
We now have from what I can see here 6 parts to the project, Squadron 42 the single player game its still “Coming soon” with no ETA.
A small Alpha demo is out of the (Arena Commander Module ) it lets you get in a ship and dogfight in a small map (PvP style). It looks good and is used in a lot of the videos but its a small demo (very small). lots of work has all so gone into a FPS module because that’s what Space combat fans want right a FPS game?

A man can have anything…
If he’s willing to sacrifice everything.
I was just looking at a new chair today! I’m seeing lots around online now and know I need one to help my back out!! It will improve my work! (that’s what I’m telling my wife)
I will be the first to admit that just a couple of weeks ago I had zero need for a gaming chair. But when 4GamerGear.com offered to send us one of the AKracing AK-6014 ergonomic executive units, I agreed. I went out of town for a week and returned to find the chair assembled and already in use by Ken, our go to video editor and engineer. Of course I had to steal it from him to take part in the “review” process and the results were great! As I sit here now in my Ikea office chair, writing up this post, while Ken sits just feet away tapping away on some edits, I can’t help but want to use my authority to take it back.

New Space shooter on kickstarter! A Multiplayer space warfare from the minds behind X-Wing, Crysis and Desert Combat.
We love space shooters.
We all played the hell out of X-Wing, Wing Commander, and that entire generation of amazing space combat games. That’s why we’re so excited to be creating the next game in that rich lineage: STARFIGHTER INC., a hardcore team-based PvP multiplayer space shooter in the vein of X-Wing vs. Tie-Fighter.
We want to recapture the intensity and excitement of those games and provide a fresh experience via modern graphics, new gameplay, and awesome gear derived from the science of today and tomorrow.
Thank you so much for joining us on this adventure.

You all know I’m a mad Star Wars fan but You wouldn’t think that a film due in theaters in December of 2016. would have ANY footage to show us fans. Which is exactly why the gathered masses at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim were screaming their heads off at the first glance of footage for Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars: Rogue One, the first planned installment in the non-saga Star Wars Anthology Series that just began showing some of its official cards. Here’s what the title treatment looks like:
The we see a Tie fighter flying over a lush green planet Alderaan?
And the Video link for as long as it works! http://movieweb.com/movie/star-wars-anthology-rogue-one/trailer-teaser/
The trailer is Amazing I am looking forward to this game almost as much and Star Wars VII.
