hmm.. seems to be that crowdfunders think they are paying for development of the thing they give money for (ie a product), only for increasing portions of the money to be used for all sorts of extra stuff like posh offices and non developmental related things.

I dunno, I for one welcome our Dark Lord Zuckermountain and will buy the consumer version of Eyeface or whatever it will be called eventually. I dont give a shit about the faceshaft, enterprising modders will make sure it works with my favorite simulation of choice. (The developer kit support is coming in the next patch in any case)

...and facebook will not create any DRM whatsoever to ensure that they don't retain control of their product.

I'm sure 0.0000000000001% of people who have the technical expertise and patience to get it running in a handful of non drm'd apps still won't be able to play online with the other 99.9999999999999% of users who don't.

Usual story - some people see trees and are oblivious to the forest.

Facebook is not trustworthy.

innovation <> always online drm or drm of any sort, private data mining, metadata collection of any type, microtransactions, games not working on release (looking at YOU EA) and the dearth of games that are NEVER completed.

Facebook is the public face of privatized illegal spying.

I am not thrilled facebook has any involvement at all.

Was too far away from Elder Scrolls for my liking. It lost everything that made Skyrim awesome.

I would have been satisfied with simple cooperative multiplayer - but this isn't it - and not looking to pay additional monthly fees to play something inferior.

gone from must have to ah shit.

Is it just me, or has all the cool computer stuff (capabilities, personal communication etc) over the past 30 years become monetized, tools of surveillance and utterly zero data privacy.

Spying Scare?

It's a scare?

yeah no - ask Michael Hastings how much of a "scare" it is - oh you can't. He died in a car accident after his car blew up when it hit a tree (despite security footage showing the car on fire before hitting the tree) shortly before he was going to break a story on the CIA and had been speaking to Wikileaks.

It should terrify ANY person of conscience that has communicated to anyone on corporate or governmental criminality in the past decade.

Security footage knows no such thing, and his closest friends and family feel that this was entirely an accident due to a massive manic episode he was having, but don't let any of that stop you and your "facts" that have no evidence.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=michael+hastings+car+explodes+before+impact+footage

It amazes me how people are so willing to trust government, regardless of what declassified information and history have shown us and race to defend against anything saying otherwise.

That's Congitive Dissonance for you, so I shouldn't really be that amazed.

It's easier to think that witnesses didn't see what they did, evidence that exists isn't real, and the laws of physics only apply some of the time.

I really do like however that people are starting to catch on over the last decade and have started applying critical thinking and have learnt that the mainstream media never, ever, tells us the truth.

Cheers

so, not to protect us from terrorism, but to spy on people who may speak out about government and blackmail them with their private activities.

COINTELPRO for the new millenium.

During the walk around, someone had a PS4 at their desk (apparently sitting underneath a monitor).
So of course, the forums erupted in : "BETRAYAL!!!! this is a console port!!!!!"

The internet at its finest.

like many of the stupid comments here too!

I'd really love to play this game with a friend or two.

Not talking about massively multiplayer or even dedicated server. Just the ability to be in the same game as a friend and work together.
