It would be crazy to stop offering stretch goals. The goals are currently in game items like a scanner kit and engine tuner. Things I would assume cost very little credits and take almost no time to make internally.

No offense Tumbler, but from that post I can see that you know next to nothing about programming or project development.

That is finally some good thinking from CR.
Why he put that up for voting is beyond me though, it is so obvious he should stop the stretch goals and focus on finishing the core game.

I think that he wants an excuse, any excuse to keep the money rolling in. This is why he put it up for a vote, its rather obvious how the rabid fanbois are going to vote...

Stopping the stretch goals won't stop people from pledging. Obviously it makes little sense to stop accepting funds. They continue to attract more people simply because people are interested in a cinematic space Sim. Besides, the most important module of all, the dogfighting module is out so people can evaluate for themselves.
What I don't understand in some of the opinions expressed is why some think that they will fail simply because of the huge amount of money they have raised.
Why more money necessarily means failure?

Its not that more money = failure. Its the ridiculous strechgoals that seem to spell, BAD MISMANAGEMENT. You cant keep adding features to a project once production has started in earnest. Your programmers will hate you and you will end up behind schedule and with crappy software. You have heard of featurecreep I take it? Well this is it. And then some.

Go Croatia!!! (Ok now you know where Im from... )

Final score: Brazil 3-1 Croatia. Tough break. Brazil were the better team and Oscar was superb but you got screwed by the ref for the penalty. There was a few soft decisions but that was just plain wrong IMHO.

I thought that the Croatian keeper was supposed to be good - he's been poor for all 3 Brazil goals. You've got a tasty midfield.

Gooddamn that Japanese ref....the guy needs to commit seppuku like yesterday....arrrgghhhh. This is the main reason why football (soccer) wont take off in the states. Too many bullshit decisions in every single fucking game! Croatia played at least as well as Brazil, so its not a total loss, if they keep that up they will do well in this tourney.

Hang on? CR thinks they should just concentrate on making a game with the funds they already have? What is this? Common Sense?? No that cant be right, here light that cigar with another grand. Its time to discover new and completely unecessary aditions that this project sorely needs! Ahoy Silver!!! AWAY!!!!

Apart from Enterprise all the Star Trek series are pretty much awesome. DS9 is the hidden gem, and probably the best of the lot. It does have a slow start, but it also has the best characters of the lot. Garak the conflicted taylor/spy. Gul Dukat, one of the most awesome villains ever. Quark, holy fuck Quark! Odo the shapeshifter, sweet and smart Jadzia Dax, Bashir the naive but super smart enetically engineered doctor, Worf, WOOOOOOORF!, Chancellor Gowron the most awesome Klingon ever! and Last but not Least THE CISCO. (Truthuflly Cisco is the weakest character of the lot but I always got a laugh out of THE CISCO's tantrums...)

Good times man, good times...

Most people don't play PC games.

Yeah, those 65 million people on Steam don't mean a thing.

You got it all wrong Cutter. All Oculus CV1 needs to do at this point is canibalize the Track IR consumers, and they got that shit covered hands down.

In this thread, everyone finally figured out that games designed around grinding the "end game" content are fucking stupid.

The leveling process in a game like this needs to take way, way longer... so that the journey to the cap can offer you some sort of actual gameplay, challenge, and a carrot to chase (also, and END point... not a perpetual grindfest). When the goal is "Ignore all content, get to level cap as quick as possible, then start actually playing", your design is basically shit. (enter: every hack-n-slash loot generator ever made)

The second flawed game system at work here is the "enemies scale up with you" shit feature that ruined games like Oblivion and FO3. If their health and my damage scale up together, why bother have leveling up at all? Game worlds need clear cut areas and mobs that are "too hard" or "too easy" for you, so you can see tangible results of your endless grinding... so you have something to actually fear in the game world... and also so you have different areas to play in along the way rather than just repeating all of the content endlessly (or that one most efficient area). If it takes me 4 hits to kill something, then I spend 700 hours leveling up towards the "cap", but it still takes 4 hits to kill the same "something"... you see where I'm going here.

I've said it before, these games are all fun to a point... but they will never, ever have the longevity or success that D2 had... mainly because D2 was NO BETTER with these systems at all. It was simply the only thing like it to play at the time.

Lol Dude. D2 WAS better than these games, precicely for the reasons you named in your post.

Most people are nuts about them - and not just in video games. What else are the Olympics besides trying to beat personal and world achievements?

Bad analogy. EVERYONE can unlock the achievments in Diablo3. It doesnt really take skill or training, like breaking the world 100m record, to name your example.

They've been talking about a new Star Trek series for years, so I'm not holding my breath, but it would be pretty cool if this did happen.

Would be awesome. Of course, that would mean CBS would have to stop being assholes about it...


Netflix doing it would also have the added benefit of the whole season being available on day one for binge watching!! Must. Not. Hold. Breath! Arghhhh

Kind of reminds me of before and after diet photographs. Im not claiming they are fake or anything, but they could have at least used the same camera angle and vantage point for fucks sake...

The before and afters are pretty obvious, you don't need the same angle to see there is no foliage in one and a lot of it in another for example. It's not meant to be scientific anyway, its just showing people that there is a difference.

Yeah I get that. Its still jarring though. If I was the boss at Rockstar someone would be getting the axe. (Or at least a harsh warning )
