How does Win10 looks as a proper OS though? Will the repeating good-bad-good-bad Windows cycle repeats and Win10 be a great OS or will this be the first Windows to break that cycle?

This is the best press release ever written for all the wrong reasons!

Makes me wonder if they should have stayed at Valve. Hard to believe that these are the same devs that made L4D2 with all this bullshit they're spewing.

Good grief Rockstar, your obvious contempt for PC gamers is showing quite a bit.

Inevitable, considering DICE never gave a shit about the community and about their own games since BF:BC2. Hopefully there'll be a lot less people buying Betafield 5 this turn around, BF3 and 4 were terrible at launch and are still rather terrible today.

No reason to trust DICE, in fact, there never was any reason to begin with.

Wow these guys really, really are trying hard to scam everyone. Hopefully not a cent is given to them.

Also, apparently, that World Wide Funder site was created by them.

Talk about scam.

Oh fuck me, it's Skool Daze, my favorite ZX Spectrum game! Damn, I'll have to donate some money to these guys.

Also, IGDA... this is why GG exists.

This War of Mine is a great game and people should pick it up like now, not in a Steam sale.

I agree. Also, anyone who enjoyed FTL must get Death Skid Marks. Holy shit it's such an awesome game in the FTL vein, but with cars and heavy metal.

Fun fact: servers were down a considerable time during release, stopping everyone from playing.

Yeah, always-on online is such a great idea!

"You have to have thicker skin!" says a few thousand gamers who went on a three month long bender over an op-ed piece they think insulted them.

Because having thought police as law is always a damn fine idea, right?

Aren't you telling people what to think, too? Aren't you out there "white-knighting" developers as if they can't think for themselves and make their own choices on which criticism matters to them?

Are we really at the point in society where we think any criticism is an attack and any criticism must be shut-down immediately because it's "thought police," even though the people using that terminology are the ones screaming about what people are and are not allowed to think?

And isn't it funny that people claiming it's about ethics in journalism tried to get ad money pulled by a publisher over a negative review when part of the biggest issue in games journalism is good reviews in exchange for continued ad money?

I'm white knighting devs?... Where? If there's anything I am not is a fanboi for whatever dev there is. Sure, I've always supported the indie movement but it's the movement I support, not individual devs.

As for your allegations of attacks on criticism, it wasn't our camp that went out mad with censorship, shutting down accounts and discussion left and right like your camp did and still does. So your criticism is laughable at best and disingenuous at worst. It's always ironic when the ones criticizing actual constructive criticism are also the ones who wield censorship as a tool all the time in order to achieve their ends.

As for the third point, it's not part of GG and it's something GG is also fighting. This started due to censorship and in no way does GG supports it. You, on the other hand, seem happy to use it in order to protect your feels. Here, let Totalbiscuit speak for us all:

Glad you will no longer engage in these threads, your thread pollution was reaching Slick levels.

I wonder what would have happened had FD scrapped the online component and gone totally offline for ED. I think a lot of people defending FD would be the first ones to turn against them.

Well, the forums are again alight, they are refusing all kind of refunds at this point.

I have a feeling this will bite them hard in the ass.

But I also disagree that people should be upset when crowd funding projects don't deliver on all their promises.

Again, they would have known this LONG ago. They didn't make the decision to switch to a "the server does everything" model in the past few months. They made that decision basically all the way back in the beginning. Had they made the announcement then, it would have been quite a different story from them making it exactly one month before release.

Also, making it online-only means some people simply either can't play the game at all, or only sporadically, etc. People on satellite basically are screwed, because the latency would fuck everything.

I'd call that slightly more than a feature getting stripped out or a promise being broken. A portion of the backers backed this basically because he promised there would be an offline version of the game. He changes that promise with a month to go. I call that shitty. YMMV.


Yeap, this very much. I too wouldn't have minded at all if E:D had been announced as an online-game only, it's not my type of game but hey, at least they would be portraying the game's net requirement clearly and those who don't mind it would get it. This, however, is simply FD trying to call a turd as gold nugget, not to mention this simply kills modding, one of the things I was really looking forward. Without modding and with the already sparse content the game has I don't see a bright future for the game, not anymore.

This game wasn't announced as a MMO, hell even Braben went to Reddit and confirmed there would be an offline mode. Doing this at this point of development is a huge PR blunder and betrays a lot of KS backers who bought into it under the promise of offline play and, perhaps, modding.

Ah well, Limit Theory seems to be shaping up pretty well, better than Elite: Dangerous that's for sure. I guess I'll have to wait for that one instead now, at least the dev behind it is pretty honest and straightforward.

Also, according to the forums, refunds are on a case-by-case basis, so refunds are NOT guaranteed.
