"All you do is pay extra on top of your pledge; if the promised goods arrive more than three months late or don't show up at all, you get your money back. Indiegogo is only trialing insurance with one campaign, Olive's anti-stress wristband, but it might expand the offering if the dry run proves successful."

Yeah which bank is backing this?

But I love how it ends... what would be considered a success for a test like this? One that fails to see if the insurance works? Or one that delivers and then not needed? What do you learn if there are no hiccups?

I don't understand why people keep throwing money at this game and I suspect they don't know the reason either.

Because, SPACE.


And more accurately a FPS in space with a little flying on the side.

I think Star Citizen is a bad thing to have happened to the gaming industry. They have shown to the entire world that you can sell virtual products that do not even exist yet at ridiculous prices simply by making a very thin promise.

Now you just wait until EA and Activision start using that strategy and buying games will truly go to shit the likes of which we never seen before. Forget pre-ordering games, you'll soon be pre-ordering a skin pack for an unreleased DLC weapon!

I get your point but I don't have to wait for EA or Activision, don't we in general hate them? And buy only a few things from them and if need be just not even buy from them? My point is if they do it and I don't like it, then it is just another reason to ignore. There are more good games then people can play. I don't feel bound anymore to any publisher and their games, I'll go elsewhere.

They should have a ceremony and give it an award in front of all the "human" workers. That would be grand.

"Molyneux, who was criticized for development decisions that were not included in Godus's original Kickstarter pitch, concedes that there is a danger of overselling projects on crowdsourcing platforms before there is anything tangible to show."

Pot, kettle. Now he blames Kickstarter for overselling, dude you do it for every game for the past 15 or so years, kickstarter or not.

Sony's H1Z1 or whatever it was, sounded like it was around the corner many months back and still little. I am excited to see what larger dev teams can do with this genre.

Big Password mistake:

"How does a hacker get hold of your password? Most likely, through a breach of a customer database like the one that recently let criminals obtain confidential celebrity photos from Apple’s iCloud. "


Right and once they get the db it doesn't matter what you have, it will be cracked, they have unlimited cracks at it with cracking software, doing 100's of attempts a second.

Now if you stay away from brain dead passwords and if they don't steal the entire DB. They only have so many chances before the account will be put on hold for additional verification. So it has imo been a fairly murky education of passwords and the realities to the masses, we are making changes to things that are really being broken a whole 'nother way.

The reality is once the get the db in hand, it doesn't matter if that password is "This!sMyPassword" or "ng031u$T%$T%Gdfdsf", it will be hacked. Now someone trying to break in through the front door, might have 10-20 attempts before locked out, but lets say they have 1000 tries, they will never get to "This!sMyPassword" in 1000 attempts.

For 1 million you can buy exclusive rights to the pet name Chewbacca, comes with the exclusive knickname of "Chewy" as well to make it a bargain.

I'm kind of tempted to pick up Shadows of Mordor since it's only $20 there...

Yeah jumped on that for $20 at Amazon.
And $25 for Alien Iso... done.
They have the new Borderland for $30, twitching on that.
Might do Wolfenstein for $20 on Steam, seeing if there is a better price, may wait til Christmas.

knowing this crowd, the game is probably awesome and the graphics great.

The people at blues are the worst gamers on the planet. If you could actually call them gamers. you guys are more like amateur trolls from some youtube comedy channel.

Go buy it then Ace.

Pretty much nothing is true 1080p on the Xbox One so who cares?

I do, not because it's not 1080p, because it doesn't have the balls to handle 1080p.
