With the recent release of Starship Crew Connector v2.0, I thought it was time to take another look at the platform and what we set out to achieve. Back in 2014 when I first backed Star Citizen I was most attracted to the multi-crew dimensions of the game. Having spent many late nights in the […]

What does yesterday’s announcement mean to the backer community? Yesterday, Star Citizen released v2.6 to the Public and announced a pivot to Amazon Web Services (AWS) Lumberyard. As can be expected, there was much derision about this move in some corners of the community of backers and critics around CIG. A few gaming ‘journalists’ also […]

It’s no secret the Holiday live stream event was not a big hit in the community. I’m as optimistic as they come but it’s important to be intellectually honest. Between the production problems and disappointment about v2.6 not being released yet (Edit: As of the end of the live stream, this was accurate), reasonable or […]
Thanks to Star Citizen community member Tabascoid for permission to reprint the list he compiled and CIG Customer Service for all the work they do for us! At some point I’d like to get these into logical groupings, but here they all are for now: The big list of #TipsFromCS #TipsfromCS Upgrading a ship to […]
Last night I took some time off from writing about CIG, Star Citizen, and the community around it, and just went out and participated in it. My buddy Jimi from Versecast and I met up and headed over to Bar Citizen, Santa Monica. Let me tell you, it felt really good to take a step […]

The final installment of Indiegogo fiction, with our profound thanks to all of our supporters. To close out on a bang we made this last one with an extra helping of epic – hope you like it!
Far far away from the wretchedness of Brimstone, a bar in the Sol system is jammed with paramedics, firefighters and rescue pilots. It is a ritual of laughing, telling stories and hard drinking — some to forget, some to re-live wild moments, and some to say last farewells.
This post is INN’s Star Citizen Anniversary Stream Impressions and Highlights. In it, we will eschew the typical, shallow bullet list of every detail in the CIG event. Instead, as part of the evolving approach to INN coverage, we’d like to take a deeper dive on the parts that were most exciting and interesting to us. For […]
Earlier today we asked the question Can orgs hold territory in Star Citizen? Ironically, later in the day I discovered a video of one of the biggest orgs in the ‘verse doing just that. This video is a three minute montage of Imperium holding their very first game night, on October 22, 2016. It’s a […]

Or more specifically, similar to the experience in EVE Online, will large orgs be able to dominate areas of the ‘verse, effectively shrinking the playable area for small, independent operators? This question captured my imagination. I […]
