Well, I'm not sure this is what Gabe wanted when he stood up for this game, but there's no turning back now that it's rated AO. I would expect there to be more to follow, since the precedent has been set.
Would be pretty funny if there's pressure to sell some of those "erotic" soft porn games now.

Nowhere is this more apparent then the shit-hole steam has become with early access/greenlight. A dumping ground for low quality games.
Maybe, but this is where those user review scores are useful. The Steam user reviews are usually a good guide.

The reality of kickstarter projects is that you never know what you are going to get until the game is finished.
People invest into these projects should be well aware they are basically gamble with their money.
Planetary Annihilation was my learning lesson in that regards.
Yeah you have to be prepared to get nothing in the end. One of the projects I backed (Unwritten) was cancelled because the guy faced some awful personal issues with his family's health, but so be it. The way I think of it, I'm backing things I want to get made, I'm not buying a game. There are few projects I'd put more than $20 on.

Alien invasions were de rigueur when the perceived enemy was an outsider (e.g. communist Russia). Zombies are more suitable now due to fear of enemies within (e.g. terrorism).

Don't go looking for "conspiracy" when "bad critics" gives all the explanation you need.

Especially because humanism is the opposite of feminism.

Which youtube video did you get that from.

You know, instead of quoting the first sentence, you could have read the 2nd one (Where I quoted WIKI for specific reason) and realized I just explained to you that humanism is against ideological thinking. And believe it or not, feminism is an ideology. Worse, it is an ideology that is now (3rd gen) mostly against men. Even if you could support feminism before, the kind of feminism a Zoe Quinn propagates you could never support as an humanist.

Also since you didn't ask a question I am just gonna ignore that sentence
Dude. Humanism is an ideology.

Dude. An ideology is a set of conscious and/or unconscious ideas which constitute one's goals, expectations, and actions.
Yes? Are you under the impression that humanism is not a set of ideas established by human beings? Do you think it's some natural state of being removed from human beliefs and values?

HorrorScope wrote on Feb 4, 2015, 17:49:
I most likely would buy this. But one part of the sales pitch that doesn't sell me is it isn't like this genre died (like others have), first person action rpg's have been being made all along. And the pitch wasn't all the exciting or convincing. Oh and I liked them, but didn't consider them "masterpieces" like they self proclaim their own work.
Like I said, there are very few that actually do what Looking Glass did. Skyrim is the 1st person RPG everyone talks about now, but it has an entirely static world and relies on expansive environments and exploration. Which is fine if that's what you want, but Looking Glass was all about creative problem solving, something the Elder Scrolls games are very poor at. It's the old breadth vs depth scenario.

I feel bad for people who prize graphics so much. I assume that means you can't even go back and play classic games because you think they're too ugly? That's a real shame.

MoreLuckThanSkill wrote on Feb 4, 2015, 12:47:
This game will probably get made, fueled by pure nostalgia, but it doesn't really make sense to me as a project, when there are so many other first and third person RPGs these days, that look so much better and have advanced so far past what Underworld was back in the day.
Advanced in what way? There are very few that (competently) do what Looking Glass was all about: giving players diverse tools that can be creatively used to solve problems. Dishonored is the most LG-like game of modern times.

Whut? Sony/Verant is the creator of traditional and grindy MMOs.
Exactly, they were among the first to make that kind of game. It's not "traditional" if you're among the first to do it. They didn't just pump out clones like other companies have done since. They might not have always nailed it, but they at least tried to innovate. Maybe they still will, but who knows.

Wow this is surprising. A shame too. Say what you will about Planetside and H1Z1, SOE was one of the few MMO companies looking to do interesting things instead of pumping out traditional grindy MMOs.

I can understand people being interested if it were actually a fun game, but it looks like no one even fights back in this. You just go around destroying things. The game is comprised of a single thematic gimmick.

What are you basing this on?

They only had one "living story" team for season 2. That was another indication that they were working on something bigger in the background.

That is an example of their PR double-speak on the subject, yes, but there were many times when a dev would state less publicly a more definitive no, it's not in the cards, they had not put any planning or work into creating for one, etc.
They never said no beyond that quote Morgan posted. And it's kind of a running joke that 'nothing is off the table'. It's been clear for at least a year that they're making an expansion, since their regular update team was only a small part of the company (about 20 people out of 300+ employees, and not including many of the veteran devs).

Fuck, is this no-talent bozo STILL riding John Carmack's coat-tails?

Give it up John. Doom was good because of Carmack's engine. Quake was good because of Carmack's engine. You're a fucking level designer for fuck's sake.

This should be called "John Romero plays DOOM, bores onlookers."
You're an absolute idiot.

It's interesting how quickly these games have been released after Disney's buyout. I wonder which stubborn prick at Lucasfilm was resisting this for years and years.
