    We seem to have lost another Star Citizen thread, but we need one with the lol-fest that is CitizenCon coming up this weekend. A convention for a game that is still in alpha after seven years in development, by a company that has never released any games at all.

    Also it's going to be beaten to market by both Shenmue 3 and a new Half-Life game.

    It's even in my city.

    I don't think I can make it, I'm busy eating my feet that day.

    Maybe the true Star Citizens were the friends we made along the way.

    Digital Foundry is back on the totally non-sponsored case, with another video asking the truly important questions about this completely unplayable slow motion car crash - what are the particle effects like? (Spoilers: GROUNDBREAKING)

    I donít even know if I should ask this, but is there a release date for this? Because Alex keeps talking about version 3.8 and they keep adding cool tech but it still looks very far from being done.

    Britain will probably be back in the EU by the time this gets released.

    Short answer, No.

    Longer answer, I play for 5-6 hours every week and have more fun in it than most other games. It's buggy, can be frustrating and it helps if you find a decent crowd to play with but the same can be said for a lot of other released games.

    Okay, but what do you actually do when you find a crowd?

    You fund the hell out of it.

    Do missions, run some trade, shoot bad guys, bit of exploration and moan that some features need to be in before it's fun.

    They've spent years and millions on it and they arguably still don't have a working game. Lots of FMV with big name actors though.

    It can look good, sure, but I've seen a number of let's plays where the amount of bugs and unfinished stuff on display is just staggering.

    I think itís the funding model. The more money they get, the more scope they add, the more money they need. Itís perpetual development.

    People have given £100's of millions to what is essentially vapourware?

    IT will never be released in a completed state. Even if it does, the amount of real world money chucked at ships etc will mean it is broken (in terms of meaningful progression) from day 1

    Thatís exactly it, they keep moving the goalposts.

    A 2080 Ti and a 24-core CPU can't reach 30fps at 1080p.

    I haven't tried to play it in years, but I can imagine that's true.

    Last time I had a go it ran like a three legged dog on smack that had been dead for seven years.

    Not tried recent builds too much but from what little I did and older builds I don't recall it being that hardware intensive.

    I am still hoping S42 turns out okay as that is the only bit of the game I really cared about.
