After trying the game out, so far i dun have much good impression of it.

Where's the content!?
Other then playing in the arena commander and having a few other "modes"
What else is there?

And its been in development since like.. 2011 right?
Their estimated release date is 2015 right? i don't see how that is gonna happen unless they got a ton of content that they are not showing.

Hope they have something meaty release by end of the year.

It makes elite dangerous look even better man

it's been in development since early 2013. unlike Elite which has been in development for several years. so definitely Elite has a leg up, but if you complain about content, you'd actually be surprised at the current and final state of Elite

And yes currently there's only the Hangar and Arena Commander with the different modes. But how about this, can you think of any publisher that let's over 600K players test (multiplayer) and be open to feedback of an alpha? What CIG as well as Frontiers and many of the other crowdfunded game developers are doing things differently from regular publishers.

Because these devs are passionate about the games they make, they want feedback early from their fans and are letting them earlier into their game. Granted alot of other stuff is not ready, but at least they get the much needed gamer feedback early.

btw, still waiting on your friend's PM or yours and remember, u can swap weapons in hangar

edit: check out this part of the latest Around The Verse vid - an interview with Elwin Bachiller. Now who is he? He used to be a pledger, then participated in The Next Great Starship contest and impressed team at CIG that they hired him. Here what he has to say about the project.

Hahaha thanks! but i didn't get star citizen after taking a look at the state of game now, its still too rough and early to invest any money on it imo, i'll wait for say the beta stage to take a look again.

I would say that SC has got more variant of ships and they look pretty. Gameplay wise the ships functions expected but still kinda rough on the controls and loading etc. Scope wise, i can see the SC is gonna be huge and with alot of possiblities for gameplay that will hopefully come down the road.

Just the interior alone of the spacecraft is already saying alot. Detailed stuff going on.

My friend has it, but he has stop too, lack of content put him off too. We'll revisit the game when its in a more complete state.

I have some doubts about elite also in its current state, like the promise of billion of stars to explore and with 2014 rls date, it also seems kinda

Overall i think both have their strength and weaknesses, i would love to pick both up when they are finally rls.

SC vs ED, which one more fun?
ah such an open-ended question. so the short answer is: depends.

both are of the space-sims genre which is very lacking from present day video games.
both have a learning curve that varies. but i feel ED's flight mechanics are more mature but that's given since ED is in dev for longer time than SC.
both have 'jobs' based on your ship type though SC promises a wider range (for now)
ED will be out first for sure, but they plan to go the DLC route. very sand box. great for those who like to solo play.
SC still a long way to go.

there's plenty gameplay of both games on youtube so you can decide for yourself which appeals more to you. if you need specific questions, feel free to ask here.
remember, SC gameplay is in pre-alpha compared to ED which is now in 2nd beta - 3rd beta out end of Oct 2014.

again depends on what you want. u want to spend the cheapest? or u are willing to pledge more? do note, everything can be earned in-game. so u can pledge the lowest and slowly earn the rest in-game later.

each ship are you 'classes' and the skills are how you pilot your ship.
