Unlike most Kickstarter games, this one actually looks like a AAA release.
I can't wait for my boxed collector's edition!

I backed this game, but I haven't been following the constant stream of updates...
Does anyone know when it's due to be released?
I'm afraid that development will continue indefinitely as long as Chris Robert's bank account keeps growing.

WTF then. The email I got says:
We are writing to provide you advance notice that the price of your Prime membership will be increasing. The annual rate will be $99 when your membership renews on June 4, 2014.

I'm guessing that this isn't your first year of Prime, and those of us who are new members get the lower renewal fee.
When I joined Prime last Fall, I was told when my $79 renewal would be... Increasing that now could break the contract.

I got the same email...
my Prime renews at $79 this year, and increases to $99 on October 21, 2015.
I'll be saving this email just in case Amazon pulls a fast one.

I noticed that Amazon has Blackguards at 40% off, so I picked it up.
Most of the negativity surrounding this game seems to come from those who expected a fully fleshed out rpg, but found it to be more of a combat heavy turn-based strategy game... but at $24 you can't go wrong.

Uhhh wow marketing... The bots in that game are horrible and the game runs at 792p on the Xbox One with noticeable slowdown and screen tearing.

Yes, but without that incredible boost in performance thanks to The Power of The Cloud the game would be running at only 720p.

News Comments > Tex Murphy - Project Fedora's 2K Graphics
8. Re: Tex Murphy - Project Fedora's 2K Graphics Feb 28, 2014, 14:48 JediPunisher
 
Iíve missed those old Tex Murphy gamesÖ so I pledged for the boxed collectorís edition.

As far as the 2K resolution is concerned, Iím guessing that theyíre shooting scenes at DCI 2K CinemaScope resolution (2048 x 858); That is the 2.39:1 very-wide screen aspect ratio used for some movies, which will appear letterboxed. Itís still possible, though unlikely, that itís true DCI2K format (2048x1080), which would be a first.

Both systems are still overpriced for the tech they output.

Agreed. When the Xbox 360 was released over 8 years ago, it was on par with a mid-range gaming PC costing over $1000.
Today, the XBone is closer in performance to a low-end PC costing half of that.

Christ, are they still touting that shit?

Can you imagine the insane power of the PS4 if Sony learns to harness the limitless power of The Cloud? It boggles the mind.

"Letís be clear about this: Xbox One fully supports 1080p at 60 frames-per-second," said Eagle...
"Itís up to individual developers. Performance in this era comes from three areas: hardware, software and The Cloud."

In other words, the XBone won't be so pathetic when developers finally learn how to harness the incredible power of The Cloud! Fingerscrossed Pray

Who wants to bet the Microsh!t releases an upgraded XB1.1 with 8GB DDR5, minus Kinect, in time for Christmas for $399?

I much prefer the days of physical over digital.

1a. You owned something physical, not just an intangible "license"
1b. Which grants you additional legal rights (at least here in Australia) including consumer rights so you're entitled to refunds (unlike Steam)
2. You always had access to the game/files forever. They couldn't be revoked or pulled or disabled like digital games/files can!
3. Quicker to copy and install (than download a 20gb game)
4. Doesnt use up your bandwidth and broadband quota
5. Could be lent to a friend or easily installed on your second PC/laptop

The only drawback to physical was in relation to having to always have the disc in your drive to play the game (legally-gray "cracks" were always a good way to circumvent this though)

Digital is just convenient - but by no means better IMHO.

You missed a big one...
6. With physical media, you can sell your used console games and get up to half your money back!!

I'm not arguing that win8 is well received, because its not, just saying that there are better metrics to use to support the claim.

Well, you can't really argue with the official numbers. Four times as many people switched to Windows 7 last month than Windows 8 (I'd wager some of those were downgrades).

Let's be realistic, the big hate in Win8 comes from two things: UEFI and MS bootlock mixing, the bootlock is trivial to bypass and ignore. The second was the playskool UI, which was also trivial to replace.

If you think those are the only reasons why we hate Windows 8 then you have your head firmly planted up Microsoft's ass in the sand. I really don't have the time to list all of our gripes, but you could just Bing it.

Since the release of 8.1, Windows 8's total market share is up from 8.9% to 9.3%... less than half of one percentage point over a two month period. At this rate, Win8 will be lucky to hit 12% market share by then end of 2014. What's worse is that most Windows 8 users simply HATE IT. Just look at Amazon user ratings... over HALF of Win8.1 Pro-Full owners rated it ONE STAR; Only 25% rated it 4 stars or higher vs 62% for Win7.

I guess I just don't get it. I have been using Windows 8 since launch, and I don't see where all the hate is coming from.

Just because you like your Prius, doesn't mean the rest of us want to give up our gas guzzling muscle cars.
