News Comments > Double Fine Taking Heat for Spacebase DF-9 Release Plans

Do you? Where does it say on Steam that Early Access games have to be finished? No really, i want to know

No. How would they define "finished"? DayZ still isn't finished but it has sold a ton. I think in both kickstarter and Early Access the only obligation to "finish" the project is an ethical one. Double Fine "finished" Space Base DF-9 by labeling the last release 1.0. The community by and large disagrees that it is finished, but there isn't anything they can do except not back DF in the future.

...One side thinks the problems are in aggregate. The other side hears about the problems and thinks it means them as individuals...

What side do I fall on when I am against sexism but I don't see "problems" in what Sarkeesian is trying to crusade against? All I see is something that will fix itself on its own as the gaming industry matures.
... In this comparison are you really trying to say that the majority of games are hyperviolent / sexist? And you think people don't have a problem with movies being hyperviolent? There are groups that do but they're not being given any attention by the press industry covering films.

That's exactly how I see it too. Sarkeesian is being given way too much spotlight for making such a poor argument (not even close to the majority of games are violent or sexist). Hence, "Gamergate". It all ties in together.

Did you read the thread? This game was never on Kickstarter.

Woops. Actually I did in fact read everything; I just made the mistake of mixing up Early Access and Kickstarter. But honestly, if you transplant the words "early access" for "kickstarter", I still think everything I said applies. You are guaranteed NOTHING by buying into an Early Access project, just as in Kickstarter. The biggest difference is that Early Access provides backers with something to actually play instead of just a dream which is all that Kickstarter provides until release.

This is how kickstarter works - contributors are taking a risk, a calculated gamble that the dev will succeed in making the game they pitched in their design doc. The risk is that the game doesn't live up to its vision. Backers need to understand this, and that their only recourse is to be wiser about who they throw their money at in the future. So many people seem to not get this.

EDIT: This is not to say backers don't have a reason to be angry. On the contrary, according to the comparison of what was promnised and what was delivered, it seems they have every right to be pissed. This will end up costing Double Fine a lot more than the contributors in the long run. Their rep is going to take a huge hit over this.

hat's the biggest issue here. So many morons think Anita calls for censorship. She doesn't, she calls for improvement.

And you are sure if this? Admittedly I often grow nauseated by her nonsensical blathering and miss some of what she says but I can't remember her specifically stating exactly what she is after except in the most ambiguous of terms. How can you know where she will stop in her crusade to browbeat game developers into only making games that conform to her delusional vision of how women should be portrayed exclusively? It certainly doesn't help that the examples she poses as sexism more often than not aren't at all sexist - how can anyone be sure what she wants when she is so off the mark in what she is saying?

Well I haven't heard any stories yet of Wasteland 2 raping mothers and murdering children, which is pretty much all I need to know before buying it.

You would buy it anyway.

Addressing allegations of “collusion” among gaming journalists - Ars Technica…

The asshat admits he was trying to collude with his gaming press peers to bolster Quinn's career but says everything's okay - no one went along with it. They just don't get it.

I can't control how other people act. All I can do is behave decently to everyone. I game with a "gaymer" and he is the coolest dude, which is all I require. I am biased against asshats - everyone else is a friend of mine. I really don't have the energy nor the desire to go crusading on the behalf of others though. I feel that by just being decent to everyone regardless of sex, religion, sexual preference, whatever, I am setting an example. If enough of us do that we make the asshats the minority, and hopefully, the outliers. I see it as really that simple.

As far as having a "Hetero White Gamer" convention, I'd say who needs one? Every con already is one. But I equally don't see the reason for LGBT cons either, since they are welcome to every convention since they are gamers. I'm not sure if dividing ourselves further does anything for fostering an overall inclusive mindset in the gaming community.

Why have a death penalty if it isn't used in a case like this? You won't find many cases where it's more warranted than it is here, save for child abduction/murder cases.

In this last update, Stephenson says that people who have asked for refunds have received them.

They shouldn't have to ask; refunds should be automatic now that the game that they backed is dead.
