And yeah, if it's not as advertised all around this could be just another massive blow to crowd funding games.
No, it wont. Crowdfunding is an established financing method for many years now, not only in the gaming world. Failures happened frequently. Has not stopped different (!) people from supporting different (!) projects they want to support.

Crowd funding is new as far as gaming is concerned. We haven't even seen any major projects arrive as of yet. The largest being Shadowrun so far and that's gone over to mixed reviews. As more failures and scams about all around you'll see it diminish. Either that or people - like myself - will expect to see a lot more than just a concept before we hand any money over. From now I won't unless I see they're already comitted their own funds and have done a substantial amount of work. Nor, will I be funding anymore millionaires who can finance this stuff themselves. If you think it won't change you're kidding yourself.

Gamers aren't particularly good at sticking to their guns where their money is concerned. Even if a few Kickstarters fail or under-deliver, the next Kickstarter with a shiny bit of hype, an IP they like, or a developer they like, and they'll be right back throwing their money at them.

That's kind of what I was getting at.

Notice the feminine sounding usernames already playing the oppressed gender card.

You can always count on the White Knight Brigade at Bodypillowfuckertaku to stick it to the patriarchy.

I find these kind of statements to be pointless because the average PC is running Intel integrated crap, not high end Nvidia or AMD cards.

Unless I can play my entire Steam catalog on it, no thanks. And even then it seems a bit silly when I could just run a normal OS with Steam.

if we know who you are and you're abusing somebody on Twitter, we will ban your game account and we will not accept you as a customer ever again.

Hehe okay. You're going to ban people from using a product that they paid for because of actions taken completely irrelevant to said product or your company?

Good luck with that. Your lawyers will enjoy getting their ass handed to them in court, I'm sure.

You don't have a business contract with whatever game company is running a game. They can decide to stop doing business with you at any time. There is no legal precedent in the US that says that if a company's servers have your pixel people, that they are required to give you access forever.

I'm all for peoples toxic behavior having serious consequences, whether its said in-game or out-of-game, on official forums or unofficial, is pretty irrelevant. They are still bringing the community down.

I can't really cry for the toxic personalities who think their online actions should never have any consequences, ban away.

While I agree with that, it starts down a slippery slope. What happens when someone is accused incorrectly?

Eh, there are always going to be the unlucky few who get banned that shouldn't have, and have to get it sorted out. Automated cheat detecting systems sometimes flag people incorrectly, noob customer service people get over-zealous. It's not really a reason to not enforce your rules at all.

With that out of the way lets go ahead and make some predictions about Persona 5 and when it will be coming out ;).

I predict Persona 5 will be a grindy animu waifu simulator. Probably taking place in a high school.

In other words, just another suit who has no clue about games and got a business degree from the El Segundo School of Finance or something.

I dunno, he's been at EA for 13 years, and was executive producer on FIFA for a while. Maybe he's gained some knowledge of whats going on. Better than hiring some guy from Coca Cola or something.

Ragers are usually blaming their losses/shortcomings on other people, and as such aren't as likely to improve as someone goes "Welp, I fucked that up, I'll do something different next time."

Ah, here we go, not QUITE as useless as initially feared. From their FAQ:

Yes. A Steam account may authorize Family Sharing on up to 10 devices at a given time.

From what I understand of it this is exactly what I want. I can "lend" games to my wife on her PC's Steam account (or whatever) while I play something else on my Steam account.

She can play Skyrim on her PC, I can play Fallout on mine. We buy one copy instead of two (because why would I buy two copies for one household - that always bugged me).


Gotta use a shared PC bro.

More than kind of useless. You may as well share your actual account, since only one account can use any one of the shared games at any time.

Yeah it's basically only useful for people who are already sharing one PC but just want an extra name to keep their friends lists separate.

So what they are saying is "It's a big conspiracy!"

This is a monumental waste of time. Taxpayers already got bilked out of a bunch of money, and now they want to waste more taxpayer money on investigations that won't turn up shit. Rhode Island needs to know when to quit.

Shit, by now even if there was a conspiracy, the evidence has been shredded and deleted.

Oh nos Blue used a twitter embed QQQQQQQQ. Jesus really people?

Quite frankly the only reason it sticks out like a sore thumb is because the layout here is absolutely archaic. And I don't say this as a trendwhore. I generally hate web redesigns. But at this stage of the game, it might be warranted. I'd even pitch in some cash to help get it done.
