Star Citizen Video From PAX, Featuring Game-play & Looking Stunning

Posted by , / 6819 views
Star Citizen is a game you cannot help but get excited over. A new video has surfaced from PAX where parts of the game where shown off and it doesn't disappoint. Move over Eve Online!

It is coming to Linux as we confirmed here if you didn't know already.

Here's the video:

I have to say I was quite blown away by how good it looks, the cockpit looks fantastic! I think my personal favourite is the view from behind where your lights bounce off the asteroids it reminds me of the Battlestar Galactica remake (I loved it!).

It really isn't surprising how good it looks considering how much money they have from it (over $40 million!). It does mean they have many, many eyes watching them though, so if it's anything short of perfect you can bet there will be an internet storm considering how much funding they have.

I think I may have to actually back this game.

Meh, hardly an eve online replacement. Eve has far more to it, in every respect from what I can see so far with the exception of the UI the player uses. Hell, for all the hype it's just another air combat game set in space with spaceships..whoop-t-doo. Fine if you like that sort of stuff, might as well play team fortress and save yourself some cash though.

Eve is an old school buggy game with terrible customer support, no actual first-person flying around, extremely hard on new players, badly documented, slow on updates, mainly for killing and not for exploration or other activities, also non-Linux and the Mac version is pathetic.
Eve is waiting to die for a couple of years now and here comes the funeral!

I know, but well .. supporting it now for getting into beta seems pretty lame ;-). But I'll keep thinking about it.

I think eve is a different target as well. I don't know if I understood SC properly, but it seems like only a fighting thing. I personally prefer the mining / trading stuff over fighting (afterall, I'm better in that than in fighting ;D), but I didn't read anywhere that's part of SC.
