...some people still wearing cargo pants? pfft!

Cargo pants rule! The only thing better than cargo pants are cargo rip pants that turn into shorts and back again.

Yeah, that's what TV needs, more shows about cops, doctors, and lawyers because the fact they make up 3/4 of all shows anyway isn't near enough.

Bats, actually flu shots can cause - and do - Guillain-Barré Syndrome.

Google 'flu shot gbs' for plenty more information. Some of the stories are pretty horrifying. It's a risk people don't consider enough.

Dear CRTC: Fuck you.

Seconded. Fuck the CRTC. Bunch of cronies of the old school cable companies pretending to be otherwise. Too bad the PM didn't disband them.

And why would a corporatist like Harper disband them? Only reason would be to give the cable lobby complete free reign. Much like the FTC the idea of such a regulatory body is a good one. However, in practice it doesn't work the way it should because its run by lobbyists themselves.

Kids who died from flu last season: Most skipped vaccine.

Wonder how many people got paralyzed from the flu vaccine last season.

Yeah, thanks I'll risk the flu over GBS any day of the week. I don't even remember the last time I got the flu but it was probably a decade ago, and I seem to recall I was only down for 2 or 3 days. If the vaccines were safe they wouldn't have a waiver.

I'm still pissed about Broken Age... not playing it until the full game is released. But it is obvious that Schaffer and company don't know how to do things within budget... nor on time.

I think what happened with Broken Age is that the Kickstarter was way more successful than they expected and created enormous pressure to make a game of a scope and production value that could live up to expectations, and you just can't make that for the money they collected, at least at the labor costs a well-established US studio like Double Fine runs up. I'm not sure what other options they realistically had; if they had made a smaller-scale game it would have felt anti-climactic to many. I think Schafer also felt a certain kind of responsibility towards other crowdfunded projects as a tent pole for the concept. So I still have sympathy for their predicament on that one.


That's poor management and nothing else. Project management is easy if you're organized and know what you're doing. And most developers don't. How hard is it to compartmentalize a project?

Base Project = X number of employees + X number of days + X number of dollars.

Stretch goals = See above. Stretch goals commence and are completed after base project is finished and good.

Of course you have to actually have a defined goal to work toward, otherwise you're just screwing around wasting time and money. Quit screwing around! You kids screw around too much!

Another year or two of this sort of crap and crowdfunding/early-access will be pretty much over. There will always be a few exceptions, but the gravy train is leaving the station. Yeah, after the fiasco that will be SC it will have definitely left the station.

"Creators must "demonstrate that they've used funds appropriately and made every reasonable effort to complete the project as promised"

'Gee, sorry I ran out of funds folks, but doing that research required me to charter a yacht and tour the Caribbean and that got expensive. Especially the hookers and blow part. I certainly did my earnest best however so thanks!'

This is different. You're talking about felony acts here. If they knew who these guys were and that they had committed the crimes that makes the company culpable. And from the article that certainly appears to be the case.

Yeah, see ya when this game gets down to a sane price.
Isn't this what gamers are always saying they want? A game tailored first and foremost to take advantage of their own platform? True expansions instead of DLCs? Broad control schemes instead of context buttons?

But now that someone does all that, in a genre long in need of a commercial revival, and charges an industry standard price, they're asking too much? Jesus, what do developers have to do to make you people happy?

What the fuck are you talking about? I'm talking about actual real gameplay included. Not just a sandbox of 'make your own shit up'. If I have to provide that then what am I paying a developer for? Or at least be realistic like Minecraft was with a 20 dollar price point. So yeah, providing actual gameplay is something most people would like. Jesus that's really asking a lot for 70 bucks isn't it?

Basically, if you take whatever cutter says and think of the exact opposite, that's reality. He's in his own little bubble, thankfully.


Shouldn't you have your lips fully planted on Blue's ass about now? I may be delusional, but at least I'm not a sniveling sycophant.

I think $60 is a sane price. These guys are clipping along pretty well I think final release is near.
Beta 2 will have a lot of stuff, I've just finished reading the newsletter link here if anyone interested.
The finished game will kick so much ass.

For an early buy. Launch will be $72 CDN. That's way too much for any game, nevermind bare bones with the actual gameplay supposedly coming later on. I'd go $30, maybe even $40 with what I'm seeing and hearing, but double that? No way.
