I think the email update said something about how they don't want to add anything in new stretch that will change things up too much, but that every extra dollar will increase overall game quality.

Huh, I didn't know they were still receiving funding. How are they doing it? Paypal link on their website or something?
Yes

Oh man I LOVED these games
Also about the guy taking Xbox controller, surely someone has done an emulator by now that lets you map gamepads to key presses for Windows in general?

the FPS module isnít an asideÖ itís a fully featured game in and of itself

Great...? I know that when everyone was clamoring for more space games, what they all REALLY meant was "There aren't enough FPS games out there, we need them IN our space games too!"


No worries, it will be a fantastic FPS with an arcade game inside it that will be a space Sim. J/k
Seriously, that's how I feel, that they are focusing on MMO aspects and things like micro transactions and kitchen sinks, rather than the fracking single player space game I backed for!

The first comment on GoG cracked me up:

This is the game that made me a man. If you play this game and successfully complete all of the secret Emperor missions then you, too, will be a man, my son.
Frack yeah! I completed all objectives including secrets on x wing and tie flighter games. I'll be getting these

Games that give you increasing amounts of "coins" when you pay more always give me pause.

I think a much more interesting twist on this would be:

Everyone Invisible
Can see the weapon fire
Stuff in the environment easily disturbed (has movement as you walk by)

No real need for "screen cheating"... just watch the environment / other's gun fire and take pot shots. If you hit they become bloody visible just before they die or explode or whatever.

Problem with that is that everyone would camp...
Well you could have to have it so shooting would be super obvious. Like if you shot it would send out a big ping on the map or some such. That way you'd have to move between shooting.

So what happens if you reach the goal and the donation window times out? Are these guys free to go on their way with sacks of cash regardless of how it was generated since it's now outside control of KS or does KS reserve some right to withhold that money and cancel the project, post-funding?
After its funded it would be lawsuit time if they didn't deliver. So yes theoretically the could run with all the money about 2 or 3 weeks after it funds.

It's been over 20 years since I played any PnP, really miss it.
Find some and play then lots of people play over Skype or google hangouts nowadays. Pathfinder society is hugely popular now, local board game stores often host games. There is lots going on you just have to reach out. Oh and rpggeek is a good place to find people local or online

I'm going to start voting no on every one of those I see.
Don't think that will do much. As I recall valve doesn't really do much with the negative votes
http://indiegames.com/2014/04/310_days_in_steam_greenlight_p.html

In fact, looks like current greenlight titles have more than half no votes lol.

Valve doesn't really care, they just want to keep bringing new content without having to spend the time vetting it first.

Kinda like the 3rd season of Star Trek being moved to 10pm Friday night, and then being cancelled because -- surprise, surprise -- the ratings subsequently dropped.
If you look at the history, there was massive letter writing campaigns that brought it back (as many as 1 million letters). But they finally killed it for good after the 3rd season.

Or a more innocuous theory, they are doing it so people don't find out things from TM filings that they aren't ready to reveal

I'd expect that to be done prior to news being released about it's existence, now that it's revealed, I'd expect them to transfer it back.

This guy is a riot, quote from Reddit:

Question, how many copies have they sold?

Alex:
Steam doesn't want me to say, so I can say we've sold over one hundred thousand so far

A lot of indie developers show screen shots of their sales pages - it is very cool.
Incidentally he was answering the question of how much he gets per copy when he said steam doesn't want him to say (in other words the steam cut percentage is likely covered under NDA). The number of sales is allowed to be talked about.

I just bought FarCry3 on the steam sale yesterday and already have buyers remorse... had I known I'd need to sign up for uPlay I would have never bought it.
It does mention that at the bottom of the steam page in the additional requirements. Not very noticeable I admit.

However, I much prefer enhanced steam plugin for chrome, and buying games from a web browser. That plugin adds a BIG RED BANNER at the top for any 3rd party DRM. In this case on that page it says "Warning: This title uses 3rd party DRM (Ubisoft Uplay)"
As in nearly all options on this wondrous plugin, it's configurable

I love features like showing what DLC I've purchased. Prior to this I had to add all DLC to cart in steam (which for BL2 is quite a lot), see if steam said I didn't own all of them, try to purchase the last 2 that the cart said I didn't own, then get to the final payment page and find out I really did own one more of them steam just couldn't figure it out. Also on the ones I didn't own I had to remove one at a time from the cart. This plugin shows exactly which ones I own and don't own.

It also shades items I've wishlisted, which I've own, which other's have wishlisted (again everyone of this is optional and configurable). Makes it SO MUCH EASIER TO BUY.

OMG valve, please hire a dedicated GUI guy.

I believe that's only sprite wise. Like in the video showing if you had a pistol in one hand and grenade in other, it shows a proper sprite.

WOW, these games are so "Next-Gen" we recommend you use the latest 4 year old hardware you can get in order to run them in glorious 900p with amazing 30fps!

+1
Yeah. It took them this long to get 64 bit only? And only 4gb ram minimum spec? So next gen!
