PAX East

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-04-21 - This podcast from the SomethingAwful.com and self-professed Goon crowd, Voice of the Cosmos Radio Service (VCRS), is well worth a listen too.

In this episode, Hosts Stalker and Anders broadcast from PAX East and talk about their experience at the DFM, Arena Commander reveal, with a largely positive response (at least until the closing thoughts).

"The podcast for people that think the word 'Verse is stupid." Ah ... well... apparently we at the Citizen Star are not the target audience, but mostly enjoyed the 'cast anyway.

Fair warning: Not really safe for work, and make sure you have a sense of humor about yourself and your dedication to Star Citizen before listening. I imagine more than one set of headphones have been destroyed by being tossed across a room by listeners who are not prepared.

(Citizen Star News) - 2014-04-20 - CIG/RSI released a new video, covering the PAX East event (unveiling what was called the Dog Fighting Module or DFM, but now dubbed Arena Commander) in all it's glory and pain. Pulling no punches at how difficult things were, but also showing how incredible everything is when it works. Additional video created after PAX East goes into how things went on the show floor (timeindex 22:44) and (23:15) after PAX getting into some interesting new details about the helmet flip animation, missile countermeasures, flying around in your space suit and free flight modes.

In spite the difficulties, press and fans overall seem to have judged the reveal a success, and eagerly await deployment of the alpha. Of particular note is how Hardware manufacturers and integrators are so interested, because they know Star Citizen will be driving hardware sales like nothing in recent history.

PAX East was also a treasure trove of information, several in depth interviews has revealed quite a bit of detail about what is coming in the next months even years.

Ben's official title is Community Manager, but that doesn't quite cover the entirety of how instrumental he's been to the genesis of Star Citizen.
