Cool idea and looks indeed great.
But: "the original levels remade" ...that map ist Deck16 from Unreal / Unreal Tournament!!

So for the first half or so, I was like... Ok... they just added freedom of orientation, oh and new weapons... To a map included with UDK...

Then he spun around the corner and the old school bots attacked, which I thought was awesome... They look just as bad as I remember (a good thing heh).

So ya, I'm looking forward to seeing something they put together fully to hold off judgement, but it's looking like it could be interesting... lawsuit pending...

Too bad they can't use all that effort and make something original, even if it plays very similarly... Using the name to get recognition is not the way to go...

I hope Blizzard loses big. Piss-poor security on D3 accounts, all in order to sell authenicators as add-ons. Then making the RMAH part of the game only usable if you buy...guess what an extra cost authenticator.

Indeed... What kind of stupid half-assed company doesn't want to deal with that much fraud... FOR SHAME...

I hope a judge knows enough about technology/security, etc, and throws this shit in the trash ; )

It's not like the developers have limitless creative control over the products they make. They should but they don't.

I wholeheartedly disagree with this statement, because, I am a gamer, and I would like games to continue being made : )

They need to change the word Kickstarter to the word computer scam because that is exactly what it is becoming. Most of these games will never get made.

If you are dead set on throwing money away, a better idea is sending it to someone who needs it like a local charity.

So trade one group of people that mis-manages money for another... Great plan : )

Why in the world would ANYONE buy a DELL or other big brand name. Get raped on prices and they just use whatever hardware is laying around.

If you can't build your own, but from a local store and still save 20% and they put an additional warranty on it.

As someone who has built his own PCs for ~25 years... I fully support the opposite of this suggestion ; )

For example, the NFL Fantasy Football app. It already requires iOS 6 to continue updating and as of yet they are not promising for how long it will be supported by their system as a means to log in and access your team. There is nothing about that app that requires the new iPads' hardware or iOS6 functionality...which makes it even more aggravating.

I also have a couple of games that work fine as is but the developers are still making updates, including new features and game modes, and they require iOS 6 or the update won't download...even though the new features don't actually require anything from the iOS or the hardware that would mandate a newer iPad then the original.

I have been watching this with iOS 4 for sometime, I have every reason to believe that over the next year it will only get worse for iOS 5.

I would just like to point out, that this is not Apple requiring developers to use new iOS features... This is the developer updating their build to use the newest iOS SDK... And requiring it to be run on iOS 6 devices...

As an owner of an iPod 3rd, which won't be upgrade to iOS 6, I am in a similar situation, but as a developer, I'll be requiring iOS 5 (as opposed to 3.2, that I could, with a bunch more effort, work with)...

Very cool of Stardock to honor their long ago promise. I was kind of expecting them to conveniently forget that. I would have bought it anyway (once they finished it had it shipped like the first), but free is a better price. ;)

heh... Because it would end up on Steam at some point (maybe already is; didn't look first).

I'd consider being excited if my Nexus 7 didn't just fall a few feet and result in a screen cracked in half... Two months old, and I take immaculate care of it (other than this obviously), and bam... Garbage... Pretty hard to even consider supporting either Google or Asus.

Feargus Urquhat can do whatever he wants with my pre-order. Which is why I pre-ordered from Feargus Urquhat.

However, I swear upon all that is good and green and righteous on this fair planet that if I don't get a cloth map, I shall hand him a needle and thread and wait.

Yeah, that's a safer bet, as his kickstarter is for something he's done before. Then again, Haunts seemed to have a strong pedigree, too, but it was a guy really taking on much more than he'd ever done. Fergus, Tim Schafer, etc., are all safer bets because they've actually done this budgeting and understand how the process of going from a concept on paper to an actual release works.

Plus, he asked for a lot of money, and got a ton... Schafer that is...

I'd like to start a KS project and be honest... 'We need 50k to make the project, but if you give us more, we'll add chicken to our Ramen/Noodles'. In other words, we're willing to work for expenses, but if we get more, we will spend it (waste it) on the same things our customers spend their money on : )

It's a tricky balance for small/indie devs to post their ideas to KS...

The biggest mistake I'm seeing is the $25k goal, which, while it was passed, it already started far too low... If you're only paying developers 2-3k a month (below poverty in many countries), time tables/estimation needs to be dead on or the above happens... Plus apparently, they also got 45k from another source, showing just how badly their estimation was off...

But again, a tricky balance, because as I've seen here a bunch of times, for some odd reason, backers don't think they should be paying for salary... Like all Indie devs should (or are able to) work for free to get the product they love out the door... The point, in my mind, of KS, is to turn a hobby project that someone doesn't need to be paid for, that will take a year or two, into something a team can focus on for half a year and get done...

Anyhow, hopefully this one can be picked up, either by the 'friends' company or elsewhere, but I hardly think the story is anything unusual... Just because the guy on forbes just heard about KS this last year, doesn't mean projects haven't been failing to deliver for the last decade : )

First 3 listed are all recognized as good. Reprisal looks exactly like the game I wanted to play earlier this summer and had no idea it existed (Populous-like). Bundles like this are a good time.

I remember when Reprisal was shown here a while back... Looked promising : )

As for GMG and fraud, I've had similar issues with this site... In both cases, I'll just assume it's a 'false positive' : )

So I glanced over the kotaku review, and noticed one of the comments sporting 'One of the main selling points for this game is having so much variety in the skill trees.'... I'll leave it at that ; )

Can't bring myself to play anymore. The game is just not fun at all. Probably have 400 hours in this game by now and nary a legendary have I seen. Worst itemization in any game made in the last 20 years.

But 1.0.5 doubles the chance for legendaries, so you could put in another 400 for 2 x 0 : )

I believe I put in about that amount, and found 5 or so... I think one may have been useful (I stopped playing before they buffed em, for the most part).
