Ehh I guess, but I think the previous red flags were more about quality and worthiness rather than willful fraud. I feel like Kickstarter should let us decide which projects are worth backing, and stick to policing fraud and willful misuse of their platform. They have tens of thousands of projects. Some of them are going to be a lot more worthwhile than others.

Still, it's nice to see these fuckers get their shit taken down. I can't wait for them to throw a big ol' fit.

Hmmm. I agree with you about Kickstarter being as much hands-free as it can be but this project had some important red flags, like the constant ad hominem attacks from the devs behind it and not showing anything like a screenshot or trailer for a long, long time. These two should have at least merited a closer look, not to mention the sudden deluge of trolling comments to drown out people complaining.

SUSPENDED! At last! Took Kickstarter bloody long enough.

What? The funny money came in over the weekend. At least give them a couple days to investigate bro... I think this is a plenty quick enough resolution.

True but there were a lot of other red flags raised that at least deserved an investigation from Kickstarter, which didn't happen.

I love Kickstarter but damn, they really have to start tightening their policies to include investigations on projects that raise a lot of red flags.

"As you may have heard, Winterkewl Games have stopped work on Yogventures - but this is actually a good thing"

"Although we're under no obligation to do anything, instead we're going to do our best to make this right, and make you really glad you backed the project!"

Are these guys for real? What enormous cunts these guys are to have the nerve to say that a project people backed got canceled and it was a good thing.

87% from PC Gamer, compared to high 90s for Dragon Age 2. Clearly wrong.

Was going to say that. DA2 got 94. Witcher 2 got 89. D:OS, which IMO is better than the amazing Witcher 2 and a fucking lot better than the rancid pile of shit that was DA2, got an 87.

And the comments are a laugh since a lot of commenters have called out PC Gamer on their shitty reviews and some PC Gamer writers have come to defend it, though their arguments are pretty weak and standard fare for these type of "journalists".

Oh man, the Amstrad CPC. I had my trusty Commodore 64, my Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K with its wonderful rubber keys but I never got an Amstrad CPC. Wish I had, just so I could say I had the three most important microcomputers of all time, and it was a pretty decent microcomputer to boot.

I like how he completely avoided any question about his treatment of PC gamers in the past, like a true douchebag.

More people should have pressed that issue on him in the AMA, if only to see what his hilarious response would be.

The comments on that review show how much this review is terrible, from using screenshots taken from the kickstarter page to not knowing the features of the game or the release date.

Game journalism at its finest.

It wouldn't be Cliffb without him becoming a massive douche in the process of announcing a game that will no doubt fail and that he will no doubt blame on PC pirates or gamers or whatever as he did in the past.

First comment on the Eurogamer article, which points out the obvious:

2 hours ago
It's interesting that they promote him as a big hire, when he's behind the project all along. Sytyanov finished his work on Survarium on September 25, 2013. And it was Sytyanov who started looking for programmers for the Areal project, back in March. And now he's the new and big hire?

From the Wired comments:
DF is easily the most complex and most in-depth game ever created.
Would any players of Distant Worlds: Universe disagree?

As player of both Dorf and Distant Worlds:U I can agree with the Wired comment. Not sure if it is the most complex game ever made but DF is easily one of the most complex games on PC right now though it's not that hard to get into. Distant Worlds:U, as awesome as it is, doesn't hold a candle against Dorf in sheer complexity.

Wonderful, this is well deserved for these guys. No doubt at this point they have sold even more units to start getting a profit.

Narcissists are amusing.

Slick's an EA shill, but the dumbest kind, because I'm pretty sure they don't even pay him.

You are assuming shills aren't dumb by nature.
