Star Citizen

New in-game commercial for Star Citizen released

6:00 PM on 10.22.2013 // Patrick Hancock

It's like a car commercial, but SPACESHIPS!

Star Citizen, the upcoming super-crowdfunded game about spaceships, just released a shiny new video. The great thing about this video is that it isn't a trailer or a teaser, but rather a commercial. Not a commercial for the game, but a commercial for a brand of spaceship within the game. Genius! It's all rendered in-engine and in real time at 4K resolution, according to the website.

I didn't back Star Citizen, but I do hope that it can at least live up to the legacy of the best spaceship game ever: Freelancer. If I can get lost in Star Citizen's world, traveling back and forth between the Nomad System (or whatever the equivalent is) in order to buy and sell cargo to turn a profit, then Star Citizen may be able to fill that Freelancer-sized hole in my heart.

The development team behind Star Citizen certainly has big dreams and aspirations, and I just hope it doesn't get too big for its britches.

The Undertale review section on its Steam page is hilarious! [img][/img]

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?

Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too.

Freezing my ass off at a Penn State football game. Half of the hicks at this stadium probably didn't graduate high school, yet they're rooting for a college football team. I wish I was on my warm den playing MGS V.

Gosh darn it, she's done it again! That Sapphire's a talented minx. [youtube][/youtube]

Is renting games still a thing in America? I know there's only one UK company still doing rentals. And does it make you less tolerant of games? I definitely gave games less of a chance when I knew I could sling them back in the envelope and get a new one.

Probably the most awesome soundtrack in an indie game. And the game isn't so bad either. win/win situation tbqh.
