It's not blasphemy, I've said the same thing dozens of times. Yeah I've put 100+ hours into xcom and ftl, but many action games I want 12-16.

It also is different with the games you mentioned that you have 100's of hours in. That a single play-through doesn't take 100 hours, but it's so good you play it again. There are still always exceptions, like for many Skyrim. Not that I'm really telling anyone anything, I just love typing and I'm so good at it (not).

And this is why I use a two garbage passwords for unimportant sites so I don't have to go around changing them all then this shit happens - which is like every fucking week now. And different much more secure ones for stuff like banking, etc.

Same. You can have my Blue's but use a password generator for anything important enough that can get at $$$.

Yep the best thing about GW is I have a Icon to start it. I can click it at any point, update and I'm in playing. Now is there something I want to do in there? Well I'm not sure. Sounds like they moved a bunch of things around but overall nothing that gets people to stand up and cheer. Why if your going to do this massive change, not make it something that people will go gaga over and comeback in droves? It's like a redo a GW 2 2.0 and it comes out with controversy at best. Stupid.

I no this is blasphemy to many, but with the backlog I have and it's only going to get larger. I'm more now for 15 hour'ish length games, For many games that go much longer my ADHD kicks in anyway as I become a bit bored repeating its game play for so long. I rather it just end around 15 and get to the next game. This is about the only chance I have at seeing the light of the backlog tunnel.

But I'm totally fine buying quality games at 75% off even if I don't get to them. A it is still $ in the devs pockets. B. It is setting a market and has played a factor in the lower costs of games.

That's like the Stick of Truth sitting at $60. I want it, but it doesn't match the value of so many other turn-based games out there. So I wait.

"an imaginatively titled add-on"

Ah yeah, sure. And being the first ever. I recall a year back or so every other month was an enhancing game features patch.

Do a lot of people think that the 42 million milestone was only a towel? The towel is an inside joke.

Well then no one should be surprised when outsiders don't get the insider jokes.

But I read the bullet points. A ship, Web Site updates, mobiglasskit (not sure I have my head around this one yet) and the famous towel.

Face value, not impressed. But reading, I get what is being said, the games major features are done, they are putting out some light weight stuff at goal levels and that the fans voted to keep these goals going by a wide margin.

It changes a few things, but not my overall feelings. They have a lot of work in front of them and they promised a whole helluva lot. Their fans set them up for ridicule as every-time they ding another million we get to do this all again.

Good times!

The aggressive effort to collect old debts started three years ago — the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.

And there you go. Fucking hell...


Yep.

the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.

No one seems eager to take credit for reopening all these long-closed cases. A Social Security spokeswoman says the agency didn’t seek the change; ask Treasury. Treasury says it wasn’t us; try Congress. Congressional staffers say the request probably came from the bureaucracy.

“It was a shock,” said Grice, 58. “What incenses me is the way they went about this. They gave me no notice, they can’t prove that I received any overpayment



So the long game is... this will go to court, cost more than saved and then these people will probably get more money back in damages than they ever owed. So complete mission fail.

I think there is just a lot of evil around and these things are created to ultimately end in large amounts of money won in court because of negligence, that that is the plan from the start.

Ok, fine. The fans that keep pouring money into this non-stop are koo-koo to, but then again they probably are filthy rich and money is no object and if the game doesn't happen they'll take the Ferrari out for a spin instead.

But that's what we do here. We get the news, we get some details, run it through the shredder and come up with off the cuff remarks.

To a general gamer is looks like a million dollars for a towel and the next million if could be a million dollars for an outfit. What does a general game outsider supposed to think? We knock EA routinely and they don't even have stuff in this bizarro stratosphere.

But I won't question your extended details, but this is what makes it out to the wild and the comments can be hardly surprising.

"Still I know many of you will remain skeptic and that is good because we should never blindly believe in a for profit company."

Yes to that. Nothing more.

Some of the backers are worth mocking. Some of them are spending thousands collecting every ship as if they're playing Pokemon. Put your wallet away, fools. Leave something to work towards in the game.

Wall Street is smiling, this is what they have told the AAA houses for years to do. Sucks that a Kickstarter project has to lead the way in such a shit ploy, you leave that to EA and Activision.

You guys actually think they are sitting around waiting on money to implement "towels" or "horse armor" or whatever they dream up? They have that crap in the pipeline - they announce it with the money just to keep the game on news sites (like this one).

It's called marketing - and it appears to be working since every one of these that pops up generates 100 pages of bitching.

Yep you're right. If you like the EA (Elec Arts) way of marketing, people laughing at you vs laughing with you.

The most positive spin I have is the artists are sitting their with their thumbs up their bums and want to do something. But to me it's pretty embarrassing even having such trivial choices.

Sweet

Really you can't make it up. It's like they are mocking backers, but then again I don't nothing of this, other than this time I read the article linked, I see joke items you can vote on for a million. It's like they are laughing at backers with what they list for another million. In my world it is red flag worthy, sorry.

So what happened? MSE was becoming to good and the mega-AV companies complained to MS that they are eating huge market share from them at no gain to MS or themselves. So they grease MS a little to then let MSE become inferior?

I also agree that having solid addons to a solid browser is the first thing to take care of. Then the skill of not installing the nearly-hidden addons when you try to install an app you downloaded, can go a long long way.

As another said, I don't even have AV on auto-protect anymore on my home systems. 5 systems and nothing in a long time, the only time anything does happen is when someone oop's on an install and some shit software like ASK or MyWebSearch tries to hijack the browser startup.

But the addons for Firefox keep the shit out, impressively so. Very impressively so.

For those who may not have seen it yet...Card Hunter. TCG meets classic PnP D&D. Hella fun.

Solid game, coop would be very well rec'd. Quite a bit different than Hearthstone.

Its called not knowing what they are talking about in regards to this project and jumping to false ill-informed conclusions and they are projecting passed issues and problems from other games that talked the talk an failed. Onto this project and not giving it a chance in order to suit their jaded.

They could very well be synonymous.

People will judge based on past experiences and in many cases it's wise to do so. Repeating history saying comes to mind.

But about not giving it a chance. It gets a chance with me when it's done and on sale. And I'm not opposed to determining that at the proper time. I don't have to love or hate it now, however I can have an opinion on how they do things and that is all it is.

This game isn't immune to that like any other.

If you dust off the ancient history books of FPS, you'll find that a long time ago there were SDKs, map creators, editors, abundant mods, player created communities and player ran game servers. Indeed, it was a golden age.
