PC gamers are all pirates!



God I want to back this game but I just can't. While it's visuals are PCMR worthy at it's finest... It's business model is pretty much as nonsense as it gets. Apparently, u can buy land in the game now with real money which is like.. :T

Granted you could buy it with in-game currency but cum on.

Hopefully one day, they will finish it and the price will be reasonable but until then... :T

I'm just in it for the single player portion.

I may play the MMO for a week as a space drifter, but I have no real interest in MMOs.

Better get it done now.

They have to make some languages first.

Apparently we'll be able to buy that the regular way upon full release. I don't think they are literally going to make the game, where you have to be a bank manager, in order to afford anything.

If they make in-game currency worth peanuts compared to real cash by release day/month, they are going to know about it  

 

Still, the more I see of the game, the more gorgeous it looks.

 

Can't rush progress though. Not like most AAA devs do these days within 1-2 years

 

Going to live the dream of Spike Spiegel in the MMO part of the game (more or less how I play in Rebel Galaxy, which even has tunes like Cowboy Bebop).
