$99,300 with 2 hours to spare. Guess it'll be very likely they'll make the $100K goal.

Funded this one. Has the potential of becoming something quite special but then again I'm a sucker for sandbox-style games like this one and Forsaken Fortress.

First I'd heard of this.

They had an indiegogo campaign last year which only raised $23K of a $60K goal. I don't know how indiegogo works, does that mean they got $23K or $0?

Here's the game trailer.

Indiegogo is the same as Kickstarter, if you don't achieve the goal you get nothing.

After SotSII Kerberos burnt all bridges with me. Unless this game gets glowing reviews I won't be touching it, and I love roguelike games.

Your comment was about how PC gamers bitch, so you were agreeing with him on that point. You are claiming to disagree now, but you're switched to arguing about piracy, not bitching.

How much piracy is there on the Xbox and PS3 compared to the PC? I don't think he's blaming every PC user who wanted a port, he was just stating that many who want a port wouldn't pay for it. He's right.

I don't disagree with PC gamers bitching, because they are given more than enough reason to bitch of all gamers, and often said bitching usually ends up being about valid points. I disagree with his attitude, and share your opinion that his words were badly chosen.

As for piracy on consoles, games leak for consoles weeks, even months, ahead of release while on the PC it's becoming more usual for games to be cracked a day or two after release. But saying that an unreleased game would be massively pirated, as he and you are implying, is wrong, because you really have no idea of how much pirated copies will be made and how many people will buy after trying the pirated copy. Both him and you seem to fall on the fallacy of a pirated copy is a lost sale.

Also, piracy is inevitable. Bitching about it, as he was doing, is pointless. It will happen, regardless of platform. Maybe if he and publishers adopted the tactics of Notch of turning pirates to customers piracy would cease to be such a problem.

Remember that Ubisoft once said this about PC gamers.

In fairness, he's right - both about rampant piracy and that PC users bitch a lot. However, that's at best a stupid comment for someone representing Ubisoft. Even if he's not releasing a PC version, other Ubisoft studios were. He blamed it on his poor grasp of English but somehow I doubt he thought "bitch" meant "engage in respect debate".

But remember, PC gamers bitch a lot because they do have valid reasons to bitch, with publishers treating us as second or third class citizens. When you're treated like shit you tend to bitch a lot.

So you agree with him?

No. Not in the way he said since he is blaming everyone for piracy, including the people who would buy the game.

And I also would like to point that piracy is rampant regardless of platform.

It'll be hard to rinse away the bad taste the DRM and all their asinine statements about PC gaming and gamers. If they want to win my money back they'll have to try a lot harder than "Look! FC3 and AC3 were high quality for PC guyz!"

Amazingly enough the release of this mod on Steam just made ArmaII:CO shoot to the #3 place on the top sellers list.

And there's idiots who say mods don't sell games.

Also, ArmA3 announced as a Steam exclusive by Bohemiah.

Apparently, development costs of AAA games are going to rise even more.

If they do indeed rise even more then it all fits to what I said would happen right before publishers start crashing hard. The gaming industry cannot and will not be able to sustain bigger development costs.

Nice, can't wait to play it, loved the first one. Love this style of old-school dungeon crawlers. Hope the singleplayer is longer this time though.

Makes me wonder on the price. I can't see this being sold at a price of around $400 without Sony selling each unit at a loss.

Eh it's not like he's wrong, you really don't see the majority constant stream of negative on say RPS that you do here.

Oh boy this again, it really adds to the discussion and we totally need to rehash it every day Alien

What discussion? It's a thread full of mostly hating for the sake of hating. A spade is still a spade.

hate on blues posters, hate on, i'd expect nothing less.

Your bad grammar is quite ironic. Assuming you meant "hate on, Blues posters", you actually summed up all you seem to do here - hate on Bluesnews posters. I've been critical of people here in the past but that's all you seem to do.

Indeed. Amazed he's still around considering he's a one-trick pony always doing exactly what you described well.

Small detail of the trailer. The PC symbol is the first one in the symbol's order at the end of the trailer.
