Kickstarter fatigue.

People keep saying that word, yet projects keep getting funded at huge levels.

People claimed the MMO market was 'saturated' before WoW was a massive success...

That was an incredibly awesome gesture letting the sick boy take a play from scrimmage to the end zone. That would have been a dream come true for me too as a boy. Very very cool.

And more so as a boy that is terminal, I imagine...

But I wonder... What about the million other children that are as well...

I love the term pre-alpha...

As nowadays, calling your prototype 'alpha' doesn't conjure up enough acceptance that it's going to be craptastic... : )

I also referred to something (today) I'm working on as pre-alpha, but it's been like a week since I started, so perhaps more fitting.

I didn't think it looked bad... Could even be interesting...

Also, Blue, nowhere on the Kickstarter page does it say 'FPS', which is obvious from the non-FP part of the videos ; )

Which for me, is almost a guaranteed no... I prefer my shooters from the FP.

Mods are not the same thing as cheat codes, no clue what you're on about there but it seems totally irrational.

They aren't working on TL3 next, they're burnt out on TL stuff and working on something new in the future supposedly.

While TL2 mods have the potential to add a lot of new/interesting content and functionality, most of the ones up on steamworks (and the TL2 site) are 'cheat codes'... Double gold, longer buffs, better high end drop rates, etc... I don't run any of those because I know it would just kill the game for me, but I also remember how fun game genie mods were at times ; )

Irony abounds... I finally got into playing this a few weeks ago (and promptly added 100 hours /played time in that span), and I also looked into what mods were available recently, so seeing steamworks pop up on steam is neat : )

As for what I'm messing with... Beat the game initially on Normal (or the like), then Veteran, then Elite (Wand/Gun Focus based Outlander), and it's been fun, but I can hardly fathom what Hardcore elite is like, without a crap ton of twinking, because I ended up dying like 150 times throughout the first play through of Elite... Practice will help, but even without a few bugs (stuck in walls, or charged through areas into other groups), getting 'one shot' happens far too frequently. Though admittedly, I would stat different for Hardcore, but even so, with double the health I had, crits that do 60% of that hurt in any case, and you can only dodge so much : )

Did anyone get Bioshock from GMG and take the cash back instead of the store credit? If ya did, have you received the money yet?
I got mine the same day:

03/28/2013 Debit Card Transaction GREENMAN GAMING LONDON 03/27 $59.99
03/28/2013 Debit Card Transaction GREENMAN GAMING LONDON 03/27 -$14.00

How odd... Maybe because of the difference in location, but for mine, it was just discounted $15 when I bought it, so only one receipt, for $45.

Impressive pitch video, but I'm not sure it's my style of game.

Still though, I liked the dragon knight saga, and will likely pick this up at some point.

I picked up 2013 this week on the sale (core + exp only), and am having some nostalgia'c fun, but what I would really like to see is an Etherlords 3, having thoroughly enjoyed the second, and thought it made a much better PC game than any MTG title.

The timing is close enough that it may be entirely unrelated, but thank you Grimrock : )

So on the one side, Yay... On the other, it's such an early (almost teaser) announcement, that the trailer sucks (as in, lack of info), but what little bits we see, I could see this becoming exciting ; )

Yup, how many people have been moaning for a Titan Quest 3? And the closest thing we're ever gonna get only had 12k backers.

The people that were really 'moaning' for a TQ3 backed Grim Dawn a year before KS suddenly got popular...

Also, even 12k would not be anything to scoff at...

Someone on GAF said they wanted $150k minimum for the Titan Quest IP at "auction" and no one wanted to pay that much

As much as I enjoyed various aspects of TQ.. I can't think of any of it's IP not being public domain (as in, basic mythology)... Though, I do realize that names sell, so perhaps that's the major factor...

Translation: someone more sucessful then us made a game we dont like so we are going to cry about it.

Did you even read the interview or just comment snipe the headline? His points are well founded and he's not really digging on Call of Duty itself so much as he's talking about how players want everything to be like it since its made everything effortless.

Can you really blame someone for calling out on a sensationalist headline? : )

Also, I read the whole thing, and I don't think that bold statement is backed up very well... He would probably fit in really well at Blues, where jaded elderly curmudgeons is where it's at : )

In the interests of full disclosure, I might feel the same way if I tried CoD(, or Battlefield, or any of the newer shooters that might be relevant to the argument), as I'm proud of my elite UT/etc skills. : )

Excessive-UT FTW!

Perhaps it's just me.. But stretch goals, especially as lofty as 6 times the original ask, is just absurd, when you haven't yet made a dent into the original ask.

Also... 700k to fund it, but MORE than double that, just to hand off a second copy to everyone... That 'math' is just insulting. Even if every backer doubled their donation, for, you know... A second copy, it wouldn't be enough...

Anyhow... G'luck ; )

I notice a lot of people still use the term "CD Key" when games haven't been on CDs in a long time. Even when DVDs replaced CDs, people continued to call them "CD Keys."

A DVD is a CD : )

For those of you thinking of playing this, I highly recommend starting on hardcore. When your hardcore char dies, he gets put into the non-hardcore league.

This adds quite a bit of frisson to the experience of playing it, especially for the first time in my opinion.


That... is a really interesting take on what hardcore means...

I imagine some will hate it, but in some ways, it gives the benefit of both.
