This is a classic case of right place, right time because those sorts of numbers for an unfinished disaster like this is a total fluke.

Wasteland 2 was a letdown? I thought it was great.

It wasn't bad, it just wasn't good. Just sort of meh. Never really grabs you like Shadowrun Dragonfall or the old CRPGs like Fallout, BG, et al. I'm not holding out high hopes for Torment at this point, so I hope we're pleasantly surprised. As I said, I won't even consider anything else from these guys unless Torment is ahh-mazing.

"A third of crashes involved a rear-end collision, safety regulator says."

Yeah, it's called tailgating. It boggles the mind how many dumbasses out there do it. That they don't understand things like mass, inertia, deceleration, etc. More so than any other problems with people's driving on the road, tailgating pisses me off the most. Absolutely needless accidents because some assholes don't understand how important spacing is when driving. You don't need eBrakes and they won't make a difference anyway. You need sensors that won't allow people to tailgate in the first place.

That's a good haul for a scam. Guess she can plan her next one for a year or two from now. Space them out a little so people don't get suspicious. Hrm, how can I scam people as a professional "victim" instead of working? Kind of hard to do as a straight, white male.

If and when they ever deliver an actual full game one would assume that one could.

Enh, never cared for BT. And W2 was a big let down, so if Torment isn't great I'll likely end up blowing this off entirely.

There has been some successes.

Shovel Knight

Shovel Knight

And more I've forgotten the names of.

Where did I claim there were no successes? Obviously there are some but most aren't, even when they're delivered they're not what people want/expect and that's not just games. That's a major reason crowdfunding has been going down 15%-20% year on year for the last several years. There will always be one offs - like Oatmeal's card game right now - that are wildly successful, but the gold rush is over and you'll only see it continue to diminish as a whole. The point being is that the article is deeply flawed in its reasoning.

Oh please. Crowdsourcing is already on the decline in a big way all around. People are already tired of scams, unfinished projects, things not turning out as they expected and/or wanted, those who can afford to do their own stuff asking for money, etc. A lot of people are just tired of everyone always seeming to have their hand out for everything these days, I know I am. I have to find ways to grow my business without crowdfunding, if you can't manage that you probably don't belong in business for yourself anyway.

In the fool me once rule... any of me falling for this at this point, is totally a "shame on me". MS never, never learns. If the got something cool, the product will sell itself on whatever it can immediately do.

SEEECRET!

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, get a monopoly so I'm forced to use your product anyway.

I dunno, I thought the whole thing was gimmicky. I don't really want or need an overlay for RL, although there are probably a lot of niche uses for it, say in construction to visualize the next part you're building, or in surgery say, so the doctor knows precisely where to drill to insert the metal pin in your broken bone, or what not.

What I'm really looking forward to is OR CV1 so I can escape reality, not augment it.

Precisely. This sort of stuff has far more practical uses than it does for entertainment. But that's only if it's easy to implement the software that will allow you to do those things like surgery, architecture, etc. The cost for specialized software might make it entirely impractical.

They need an option to turn it off at least. I hate car noise. It's why I've always wanted a Rolls. They're whisper quiet and insanely comfortable. I love the rumble of a classic muscle car, but that's the trade off, they're fast, loud and uncomfortable. Your average vehicle doesn't need to be, nor should be.

The price of the base CaH game is $25, and it's black and white. this *appears* to be using color cards. My girlfriend works VERY part time (conventions) for a small game maker, the cost to produce something when you DON'T own the facilities is shocking. Go to a board game convention, see games that cost $45-$50, and there's just a game board, a bunch of cards, and maybe some wooden markers, and you think "why is this so expensive?". It's expensive because the people who OWN the facilities that can produce these things want to get paid for what they do, and small run stuff requires JUST as much set up as massive-run things.

The initial $10k is likely the smallest amount of money they could spend to get a factory to pump out even a small number of their card game. YES, -now- they're going to make a ton of profit, but the initial pricing was *just in case* they only hit 10K.

Um, no. One of my best friends owns a printing company and does stuff like this all the time. I use his services all the time. It's cheap. The most expensive part of the process would actually be the packing and shipping on that small a scale.

Technically Ronin were masterlass Samurai and therefore not considered to be Samurai. And no, Samurai were not Ninjas. Anyone could be a Ninja, not anyone could be a Samurai. Samurai despised Ninjas as they had no codes.

Thats all bullshit.. its saturday morning cartoon knowledge

"ninja" isnt even what they were called, thats more modern bullshit

samurai who had the balls to do crazy midieval black ops shit would get training from specific clans of other samurai who were specialists at sabotage and infiltration.. they were shinobi

but dont worry about it, mutant turtles are more your speed anyways

Don't transfer your stupidity onto me. Pick up a fucking history book sometime if you're capable because you clearly have no fucking clue what you're talking about. Christ, you don't even know what Samurai actually are. Then again, that's no surprise seeing as you can't even master rudimentary grammar.

Ahh minimalist artistic style, when you just can't be bothered with doing graphics.

That's the problem. This type of game interests me. The crappy graphics do not.

And when I saw the title I thought it was a Grow-Op simulator.

Sounds like where he belongs. He was an accessory to a crime, tried to cover it up, threatened people, etc. and now he treats it like it's all a big joke and that he's some sort of working class hero. The guy clearly needs psychiatric help as well as the time he received to reflect on how dumb he's been.
