I use dislike of The Wire as a yardstick for whether someone is a man or a monkey.

Valve aren't hurting for money. How hard would it be to knock out another episode? It's not like episode 1 and 2 were THAT amazing.

Of course, that time has passed. It would be near impossible to satisfy any of us now unless episode 3 was titled "HL3".

Sweet! This means for 10 years or more I, as an Australian will be forced to Pirate HBO's content if I wish to watch it within a reasonable time frame.

like you actually need a reason to pirate tv shows..

gimme a fucking break
I agree that people pirate because they simply want stuff for free. That said, as someone who consumes a lot of US made media that doesn't live within the US these companies sure make it difficult for me to give them money. Whether it's audiobooks, MP3 purchases, films. I'm always working hard trying to find a way to legitimately pay for things, having to find online stores that don't lock me out over regional restrictions.

In South Africa, a fairly rough country at the best of times, my grandmother had surgery under our universal health care system. She had no health insurance. It was done in a government run hospital. The surgery cost 3 dollars. In a private hospital with better conditions and higher staffing she would have paid 10 000 dollars. I guess from what I've read here all American hospitals are essentially "private"?

Just because YOU PERSONALLY don't know about other successful kickstarter examples, doesn't mean they aren't out there.

Well done for posting examples other than FTL.

If you reread my post with your histrionic internet poster bottle top thick glasses removed I implied nothing about kickstarters in general.

But now that you mention it.

I got 300 dollars invested in these kooky kickstarter projects and as such I'm happy to view them for what they are. Business ventures about as likely to succeed or fail as any conventional business venture.

Some of those projects will never hit the light of day and others are just disappointments selling a name to get made; there's still no real, playable proof that investors are getting a return they expect on these kinds of projects.

Ahem.

Quit using FTL as example. That was well into development prior to the kickstarter.

Im really hoping the standalone takes a lot of the clunk out of arma's clunkyness.

Never happen. Their engine will not change in that respect. The controls are set in stone. The only that changes between game versions are incremental changes to the graphics engine. The underlying animation system which is what causes the "clunkyness" hasn't changed since the early 2000s. They tweak timings on the animations but the system itself is archaic and will likely never change.

Arrogant, dictatorial people rarely inspire talented people to create good content. Things usually fall apart quite quickly.

If you're working on a smaller product where the dictator is actually involved in day to day runnings and contributing actual work then it's more likely to produce something.

On larger projects though these people are just a hindrance. They're better off in basements creating mods or little indie games.

March release makes sense since they don't have to do much graphically to create this for current gen consoles.

Where the fuck is RDR for PC....

Seriously give up on that. RDR was mostly riding around grinding pelts out of wild animals. It was good but certainly not the greatest thing for PC gamers to miss out on. I still don't quite get the hype surrounding it. I made it half way before getting bored.

That this got funded is truly a sign of just how spineless gamers are.

Explain.

He's a guy who spews nonsense at gamers that's actually aimed at his publishers and shareholders. He can fund this himself if he really wants to produce it. A lot of gamers talk about how he's a hype machine but I bet they all gave to this project. Spineless.

It's too easy for Americans to get guns. Not that I think making it harder would have prevented this.

Ultimately firearms make murders easy for people who aren't physically imposing or don't have the guts to really get their hands dirty. It's a device with a switch that makes killing possible with little effort.

I don't think firearms are directly the issue. There honestly isn't much direct action one can take to prevent this. Beyond perhaps individual responsibility and noticing when someone has mental health issues. Even that is hard since if you're thinking of killing off a room of school children you're likely withdrawn and not interacting socially enough to be noticed. There really isn't an easy answer to this.
