Great! Happy I was a big fan of the first two games.
But, doesn't Chris Avellone (lead designer of KotOR II) have his hands full right now with Wasteland 2 and Project Eternity?

Well, I reluctantly broke down and upgraded my desktop PC with Window 8 on Jan 31st (I didn't want to miss the $39 upgrade price)... Best Windows ever! Ok, not really.
In fact, I absolutely hate it! Well, that was 40 bucks wasted. Classic Shell helps, but Window 8 (sic) is still a complete mess. Luckily, I had the good sense to install it on an old SSD, so my system is now triple boot (XP, 7, 8).

After playing around with it for a couple of days, I can only see using Win8 if an application or game requires it... Otherwise, I'm sticking with Win7 as my primary OS at least until Windows 9 is released early next year. (Yes, I read that MS is pushing for a 12-18 month upgrade cycle for Windows along with a subscription model similar to the new Office 2013).

Windows 8 is not unusable, but it is a mess, and I hate it.
I hated the Metro interface with a passion when it first appeared on my AdBox 360.
It makes no sense for a desktop PC. I will never, I repeat, NEVER replace my PC monitor with a touch screen.
Windows 8 is an inept attempt by MS to push hardware sales and possibly to drive their stock price down for a buy back just before announcing Windows 9.
I'm upgrading my PC with a Samsung 840 Pro 512GB SSD, and I'll be installing Windows 7 on it.

Iíve said for months that Windows 8 is an attempt by Microsoft to purposely drive their stock into the ground so their execs can make a killing by buying back shares at a bargain just before Windows 9 is announced (Iím guessing around the same time the XBox 720 is unveiled). So far, their stock has dropped about 10% is that past 3 months, and is sure to drop further as investors realize the Win8 adoption rate is slowingÖ I just hope the SEC is keeping a close eye on this.

Looks very nice! But, someone needs to mow the grass.

I just realized, by the time this game is released, my PC will be 3 years old...
It's sad that I've had to wait this long for a PC game that will finally tap the potential of my aging i7-980x system.

No one seriously expected them to have this game finished in 9 months... 18 months sounds more realistic.

BTW, don't forget to support Legend of Dungeon.

We all know this game has 3 playable characters... but why not a 4th?
I want to play as that dog... biting, crapping, and pissing.

I only buy car packs, or any DLC for that matter, when Microsoft has a sale.

But Forza Horizon is awesome... Forza on the open road, complete with multiplayer, auctions, painting, and upgrades, but minus car damage and the tuning and tweaking aspect.
Unlike some other similar games, these cars all have a very different and distinct feel to them. Trust me, if you like Forza, you'll enjoy Forza Horizon.

Hard to believe Warfighter was number one...
This is the worst Medal of Honor game ever, and one of the worst first person shooters that I've ever played. Bad MP, boring SP, brain dead AI, disappointing visuals, and several glitched achievements. I feel sorry for the fool who is lucky enough to make it through this game on Hardcore (no deaths allowed) only to find the achievements don't pop...
at least, the first of the two didn't for me. Wall

I used to be a proud PC gamer; My last rig cost over $3K.
But, due to the lack of quality PC games, I find myself playing my XBox 360 much more.
I even moved my 360 to my desk, connected to my PC monitor. It sure would be nice if it functioned at full HD res along with mouse/keyboard support... maybe next-gen.
Better yet, the next-gen XBox should offer upgradeable memory, cpu, and video chips... merging the lines between PC and console. In other words, a return to the glory days of Commodore Amiga and Atari ST gaming computers. Yeah, it'll never happen.

The Game Console Is Dead. What Will Replace It?

The PC, of course.

I actually filtered their ad servers on my router, amazing how much of the interface is taken up by ads. Then I got annoyed and sold my Xbox since Microsoft no longer cares about making exclusive, interesting games.

Nice tip for 360 owners... Windows 8 users should also take note...
Once Microsoft has hoodwinked enough users into upgrading, those ads are coming to your PC!

The power of a good name should not be underestimated. How many copies would DOOM have sold if it had been named SHAKER?


The same because it was ground breaking, but I agree a name can help and hurt in general. They just didn't put enough effort into organizing this.

Yes, Doom was ground breaking, but I still think the cool name helped the sales.
But, a better example would've been, what if S.T.A.L.K.E.R. had been named SHAKER.

I also hate the Metro UI on my Adbox 360.
As with the 360, it won't be long before Microsoft pushes video ads on us through Windows 8... That could be a HUGE revenue stream for MS, and might be the real reason they are forcing Metro on us.

I'm not surprised. When you begin a Kickstarter without a name for your project, you're in trouble. "An RPG by Brenda Brathwaite and Tom Hall" is not the way to attract donations; Those aren't exactly household names. When they finally named it SHAKER, that was good for a laugh; That better suits a Kinect dance game than an rpg.

Another with a similar problem was Jane Jensen. She started her Kickstarter as "Jane Jensen's Pinkerton Road Studio", but at least she was well known to fans. Later, her project was named Moebius and was successfully funded at about 150%, but it wasn't looking good for awhile. I can only imagine how much money she would've raked in if she had begun her Kickstarter as "Gabriel Knight creator Jane Jensen presents Moebius."

The power of a good name should not be underestimated. How many copies would DOOM have sold if it had been named SHAKER?

I will NEVER upgrade to Windows 8!
MS has made a huge mistake trying to ram this Metro UI down our throats...It's fine on a phone or tablet, but not on my f-ing desktop! Furious

My God, who's in charge at MS since Bill Gates took a hike?
I can't imagine that the thousands of geeks and power users employed by MS haven't voiced their outrage at having their desktop PCs turned into iPad clones. Call me cynical, but I think Microsoft is trying to kill its stock price so they can buy their shares back at a bargain price just before announcing a Metro-less Windows 9.

Due to the rocky start, my confidence in this project is not high, but I loved the WC & Privateer games so Iím in at $30.
