I dunno... Limit Theory seems like some kind of experiment to me like...

What is the limit of people's stupidity? How long can a single individual uphold the one-man-show gig and keep the cash pouring in without anyone getting seriously suspicious?

Honestly, guys. Just think about the title of the "game". Limit Theory. Think about the premise, think about what's shown, think it all through... do we really believe in the concept of a single guy being able to work magic out of his ass? Really? Do we?

To tell you the truth I sure as fuck don't.
I, for one, wouldn't be surprised one bit if at the end of the campaign a giant middle finger is flipping us all the birdie at the KS page with a single line posted "EXACTLY HOW FUCKING RETARDED ARE YOU ALL AND THANKS FOR ALL THE FISH YOU DUMBFUXX?!?".

News Comments > Peter Molyneux's God Game Kickstarter
28. Re: Peter Molyneux's God Game Kickstarter Nov 21, 2012, 19:44 CJ_Parker
 
Molyneux sold Bullfrog to EA and Lionhead to MS.

450K, regardless of currency, should be pocket change for this guy.

--> This is just a lame attempt to assess the viability of a Populous remake, using KS as his research and assessment tool.

Ouch. 66% on PC Gamer, 70-ish or 7-ish on a few other high profile sites (Eurogamer, GameSpot). Only IGN is gushing as usual...

Definitely a might check out the inevitable GOTY pack with all DLC included at Steam's Xmas sale 2013 if it is selling at sub $10 by then affair for me.

FU the industry that ignored space sims..obviously there was more than a niche market out there. FU.

Not so fast...

Don't mean to rain on the parade, quite the contrary as I am pretty enthusiastic about Star Citizen myself and backed the project, but I think we need to acknowledge that in spite of the seemingly overwhelming success of this fund-raiser, there are still "only" a little over 60K people who were willing to pledge for this space sim so far.
60K people is nothing. Even 2x 60K is still nothing. Numbers like that mean that we are firmly and deeply in "niche market" territory.

We should not be totally blinded by the success of this campaign. Looking at the whole picture there is plenty of reason for concern. Space sims are a niche (how many people do you know who own a flight controller of some sort?) and will continue to be an endangered species with a serious risk of extinction if CR fails to deliver... which, btw, isn't that unlikely at all.
Reminiscing the Origin and Digital Anvil days, I remember hefty delays and cut features and if you check out CR's bio (on Wikipedia) you can see he definitely has a bit of a hit & miss track record.
He's not the messiah and this ain't the Second Coming.

... it's surprising to see Microsoft raise their middle finger at Intel and decide to use an ARM processor instead of an x86 chip.

Uhh how are they raising their middle finger at Intel when only the Windows 8 RT tablets are going to use an ARM CPU while the Surface tablets with regular Windows 8 Pro will be having Intel inside all the way? Get a clue, dude.

I might have actually preordered the game if it was NOT for silly shit like this. Now I definitely won't preorder but will be waiting for the inevitable Steam sale.

If I wouldn't already know that the world is full of tards and morons I wouldn't believe my own eyes looking at this thread where a couple dozen dumbfuck tards of the highest order comment in their dumbfuck retarded way on a quote that has so blatantly been ripped out of context that even the blindest of all moles would see it.

Seriously. This is a new all time low, even for you guys. Well. Gratz, I guess...

That's really pretty damn awesome. The sad thing is I am hyped for a game that doesn't come out for 2 years, at least.

Well, they don't officially have two years. The release target is April 2014 which I'd say there is a snowflake's chance in hell they'll actually make it with all of the stuff that has been originally planned and that has now been added on top via the stretch goals.
I believe they would be doing everyone a huge favor if they would announce a more realistic release target ASAP. If the game gets pushed back six months or even more in a year from now it will cost them a lot of good will and reputation. Better review the project now and tell it like it is.
I also think that two years would be the minimum for what they have planned unless the game is going to consist of two directly neighboring big cities with only a stronghold in between and not much else to explore .

I can't shake the feeling that EA would rather shut down this MMO completely before they let it go F2P.

After the latest patch 1.4 that completely fucked up the game your feeling is indeed most justified. They seem to be in the process of killing the game right now. There is no other explanation. When you have a game that is losing subs then dropping a game-breaking patch like 1.4 is like the GTFO patch with a kick in the ass to boot.

And Austin = MMO Central so this is most likely (like a 100% chance) a studio dedicated to MMO development.
Well, with Vogel at the helm the studio name is going to be very fitting since there's bound to be lots of struggling and crying.

Hello and good-bye Battlecry Studios... 'twas nice gettin' ta know ya as short as it may have been...

Seriously, with Rich Vogel on the wheel they are fucked before shit has even started. Rich Vogel's body count: Two Star Wars MMOs (which could have and should have been surefire smash hits thanks to the license if the games themselves wouldn't have sucked major donkey balls) and UO which slipped from being the no. 1 MMO into the pits of insignificance. Awesome track record right there. No, really.
Next on his hit list: Whatever MMO Battlecry is going to work on. That game is toast already. Mark my words. If I were Beth I'd spend the money on beer and hookers instead of flushing it down the shitter with Vogel but that's just me...

... and bet he'd raise more money if he went the kickstarter route.

You'd most likely lose that bet. The last space sim on Kickstarter didn't even reach the low initial target for financing. OK, it didn't have the name of Chris Roberts to it but still... space sims seem to be seriously out of fashion. How many people do you know who still possess a joystick? Right.

It's pretty mysterious, too. Fuck, I remember a time when you bought a new PC and they gave you a cheap joystick for free as a bonus so you could play MS Flight Sim, Wing Commander, Strike Commander, X-Wing or TIE fighter on your shiny new 486DX-40.

So what happened?

You know what? I think Microsoft happened. There used to be a time when people were looking forward to every major Microsoft OS release more because of the latest version of MSFS that usually came along with it than they were looking forward to actually trying out the new OS. Every new MSFS and flight and space sims in general were marvels of technology. Those were the "killer apps" back in the day, the system sellers.
Every new incarnation of Direct3D, OpenGL and Glide was a major milestone on the path to more realistic graphics and people were able and willing to plunk down the cash for the hardware to let that realism happen.
Then comes along Microsoft and releases the Xbox which results in laziness and (relative) stagnation. No longer is the PC the elite leading platform. Cross platform becomes the new buzzword and due to technological limitations space and flight sims no longer manage to stand out from a mass of very same-y looking games. The end.

I think this may turn into one of those games that's been in development so long that it will only disappoint anyone who plays it.

/agree

... unless the Skyrim-like open world stuff is true. FarCry and Crysis in all their incarnations have been rather half-assed attempts at bringing more openness to the shooter genre. A real state-of-the-art open world shooter could be quite interesting if done well.
They'd need to pay attention to not adding too much RPG-ness to it though or it may end up feeling like a HL mod for Fallout 3 or FNV. It probably should be more like Just Cause 2 but more serious and with more refined mechanics, a better and more coherent story and more memorable characters to create a unique open world atmosphere.

If this means the end of BioWhore then good riddance and don't let the door hit ya in the ass on ya way out. One less developer to pump out mediocre generic mainstream mass market crap is reason to celebrate.
