The details on the internet touching:
They "touch" 1.6% of the internet traffic, which is almost 30 petabytes/day compared to googles about 20 PB.
And if they are saying thats headers or metadata or even if you just remove streaming traffic (as I recall youtube and netflix make up something like half of all peak internet traffic in US), then its vastly vastly more than google is "touching".

From the website: "While Blizzard is not directly affiliated with this project's production, we do communicate with them to submit bug reports and make technical requests. They have given their blessing/permission for us to launch this Kickstarter, and they are supporting our efforts by featuring SCU as an Arcade Highlight."
That's not the same thing as a signed contractual agreement to use their IP. Which is basically what they should have, and almost certainly don't.
Actiblizz is an idiot if they let this continue, both because of having someone else mess with their IP as a paid product with no control over it (for instance if it fails it will could actiblizz look bad), and because if they were feeling that generous about that team to give their blessing, they shoulda just hired them or given them the $80k peanuts (to actiblizz) they are asking.

I guess we shouldn't be surprised though, this is a company that somehow ignored a billion dollar digital distribution market growing in their own backyard.
And continues to ignore it even today, despite their near continual promises to the contrary about "rededicating themselves to the PC"

The really dumb thing about this is at E3 they had Xbone demos running on PCs with Xbone controllers hooked up.
Probably because they are lying about it. If they wanted to they could easily have it ready for windows.
The real reason is probably something along the lines of they don't want to give anyone a reason to use it on the PC until they get a few months of console sales out, some irrational fear that it will affect sales.

I was at sams club today and they were selling office 365. They had as one of the positive features that you got compared to the normal professional version... a subscription.
It was like $100 per year or some such.

I ended up getting a 4 pack of the normal edition of the game. Anyone want the last one out of the 4 for $22.50 ?

The normal edition still comes with the loot bag and the free DLC.

Edit: Prez got it.

Who's going to crowd fund a F2P game? No need at all, just wait for it to come out.
Presumably people that want such a game to be developed? I've seen KS games succeed before when they said they were going to be free on release.
Remember, a KS is not a exactly a pre-order (though many treat it as such).

As well, with mobile games that end up on iOS, such a KS rarely gives out the game itself. In large part because apple makes it incredibly hard to give out codes for an app. So a lot of those KS that fund those aren't actually getting the game.

99.9% really isn't that good. The article headline should have said uptime exceeds 99.94%

They had uptime of at least 99.94% during the past year, which means up to 5 hours of outage in a year.

I dunno, I'd rather see the stuff that the community creates for shadowrun. This being a F2P, sounds more like they want the community to do most of their work and then they make money off of it. They do say only aesthetic items will be sold for money so its not a P2W at least.

Why would people go with indiegogo instead of Kickstarter? Kickstarter is a lot more popular.
Usually because of the creators living in other countries (which doesn't apply in this case since the devs are in Utah). Other reasons include KS only gives money if you reach your goal (indiegogo gives the money regardless if the flexible goal is chosen, which makes it easier to have crappy or fraudulent projects). KS also has more rules about projects.

Speaking of Payday 2, I'm going to get a 4 pack, haven't decided if its normal ($22.50 each) or career criminal ($37.50) yet.
I will probably end up with 1 slot open if anyone is interested.

I dig that they have given unique bits of in game stuff to pre-orders that won't be offered after the game goes on sale. I think more games should do that sort of thing instead of the "you get it exclusively for a week after which we will offer it in DLC pack to anyone who wants it!"

I like this one a lot more than the original too. It's quite a bit deeper so long as you and your team care to play it that way.
I'm not sure I'm a fan of this, but if you read carefully, looks like while it might not be offered "for purchase" separately after launch, it IS included in the deluxe version. Which will be sold after launch.

Kind of impressed that anyone at Maxis is still working on this.
Indeed. Credit where it's due: they screwed up the launch badly, but they've been making an honest effort to fix it since then. Very few games would get this kind of post-launch support.
Not that much of an effort. Its like what, 6 months later and they are just now getting around to fixing the traffic?

Anyone else think Roger Wilco Space Janitor?

I guess the discussion then turns to how the system might be improved. I'm sure Valve is working on that, but, hey...
Why would you be sure of that? That's not fun or interesting.

They seriously need to sit down and redo this whole process. As it is, you're can't' just look at the list and know which games are almost done, alpha, techdemo or what! While it's nice they put the 'spotlight' (ugh) on the interesting games, it doesn't tell us why. Games on this list should be at least close to release.


=-Rigs-=
No reason why they can't mark it as early access at the same time its on greenlight.

It's not a card game.

From Mecron:

"Welcome to the newest SotSverse game, GroundPounders! SotS:GP is an old-school, beer and pretzel wargame in the tradition of the classic Panzer General. It will play quick and introduce you to battalion-level ground combat in the SotS universe and is intended for various platforms. Its planned it will be fully multiplayer-capable across platforms. This game will be presented on Kickstarter and an alpha level demo will be released soon. Please look over today's teaser trailer and feel free to ask any questions at all. And get ready to get your hands dirty "
But it has cards.

This isn't a trading card game... It's a hex-grid turn-based tactical combat game with a few cards in there for special effects during the battle.
Looked like one to me.
