Looks like the Linux beta is being added at the moment too. It downloads but is missing the executable. Standard practice for their Linux releases.

The last time I played this game was using a Playstation emulator on my modded Xbox-1. Played great on that.

This would be like if the guys that made FTL decided to program an advanced 3d engine, and model their universe out in it, because they got a shitload more money than they asked for.

They got over-funded, stayed true to the game they pitched, and no one got upset because their game was really great.

Yeah that sounds more like an under-powered server. I've been playing the Linux beta on and off for a month, and it's been running fine.

I hope they fix the naming convention in Steam.

Currently the Linux client shows "Left 4 Dead 2 Beta" and "Left 4 Dead 2 (beta)", the "(beta)" one being the not-beta one...

I think this is pretty a pretty shitty situation, myself. I mean these guys just completed another different kickstarter a few weeks ago. Can we expect them to not be able to plan their budget again?

It seems sort of shameless to pitch a Kickstarter for no planned game, take in more money than you ask for, go over budget, and then do another kickstarter before anyone knows the first one is over budget and seeking more funding...

I can see why publishers didn't want to work with these guys...

I recommend it. It's almost like an action RPG, with a small fleet of ships instead of a hero character.

The only way id Software will ever get its mojo back is to re-hire John Romero, American McGee, and Brandon James, but that will never happen, so forget it.

News Comments > Avellone: Kickstarter Inspiring Old School RPG Renaissance

It says a lot about the shortsighted stupidity of the people running the publishing houses. These are people that don't play games, don't care about them as art, and don't even understand them.

Is it really shocking news that it doesn't require 100 million dollars, and a generic Hollywood action movie style story, to make a successful game? FFS

But hey if they've finally awoken from their slumber, that's good news, I guess, but it's really sad that this would be news to these people.

FWIW DOTA2 is a free to play game, so technically you do all own it.

Given the scam-like nature of mail-in rebates, and the fact that I've only ever gotten back about half of the ones I sent off for, I'll pass.

Ravenholm was one of my favorite parts about Half Life 2. That being said, I'm not sure how much mileage you could get out of an entire game based around it.

Marketing bullshit.

Games either use Direct X, or Open GL. Both vendors will strive to fully support both APIs.

What's wrong with just having online games require the internet, and not crippling the console with always online DRM? I guess that's too simple.

Considering the RMAH brings in a constant flow of money, they're greedy assholes for charging for more content.

Yep I plan on getting the expansion as well. They've done good with Civ5 over time.

Is it really too much to ask for a Symphony of the Night style game, but with a modern engine?

The design itself shows the WoW pedigree and mentality. Constant fixes, tweaks, "enhancements", balancing, etc.

Sorry brother, but you aren't just describing Diablo ...

I work away for 2 weeks at a time, the moment I get home I have update Steam, CS, TF2, MWO, Winblows 7, antivirus, nvidia drivers and more.

This is modern PC gaming, deal with it
All of those update automatically but the nvidia drivers.

Even the newer nvidia driver has it's own 'check for updates' feature, that even lets you install beta drivers.
