Well I thought it was a reasonable response...

So I get home from work and I'm talking to my gf and she asks me what the things are under my computer. I respond by telling her the truth, they're rudder pedals so I can fly spaceships. She of course rolls her eyes and starts to poke fun by saying I'm going to get a helmet and an outfit next. I respond by telling her about the not-yet-working-but-planned FOIP aspect. She says "good god" and starts chuckling. Why is it a guy can't fly his space jpegs and still get respect from the ladies? Sheesh

Of course, what good is having a fleet if you don't have someone to whom you can continue to not explain what concierge means
Concierge means that you have supported the development well enough so that you get invited to early test server events and can get support faster than others 😀

I think he knows what a concierge is. But his girlfriend doesn't. That's the reason he's still alive.

I was chuckling away at this thread and Mrs 'BobFace says:

MBF: "What?"
NNBF: "Someones girlfriend asked them about Star Citizen"
MBF: "I hope they started with 'It's not finished yet' "

Be thankful she's just a girlfriend!

When you get married, you can't just buy yourself ships anymore. Instead, in addition to buying the ships, you must also buy jewelry!

Marriage is expensive... 🤑

Honestly, she doesn't even know about ship buying at all. I've only told her its still in alpha (we play lord of the rings online together so she's a gamer), i shudder to think of what she'd say to ship buying at this stage. Also, I'm saving the flight suit reveal for after beta at the very earliest lol

My better half boots up her computer and plays too.
Perhaps you need to trade yours in for another model.
