What... you were hoping you could do this system forever? lol...

Get with the times, universities... You can self-teach yourself, using resources on the internet.

Even if it was true, it's hard for me to get excited about a BF game these days.

Yah, no one likes getting into a game for it then to suddenly shutdown it's master server permanently. I mean, seriously, who does that? Oh yah, EA does. And Nintendo. And...

And then DCMA prevents homebrews from bringing it back to life.

I guess everyone really does need to read the EULA these days, and really take seriously that sentence "We have the right to cease service at any time, for any or no reason." -- they serious.

This isn't the Kings Quest that I remember. I prefer the classic pixel art style, and music. Although the intro/music to this youtube video was fairly nice.

If he wants to prove that in some way, good luck. But that's not how Kickstarter works.

He also doesn't say it's a Kickstarter system.

I'm not sure if I should give you the Jackie Chan "WTF.jpg" or the Ellen Ripley quote about IQs dropping sharply while I was away...

Tell ya what: I'm going to leave you a collection of dequer's greatest hits, and you can decide the wisdom of freakie deakie.

There's this.

And this.

And this.

And this right here.

This brilliant fucking gem.

A Deep Thought.

Another deep thought.

Yet another, on the topic of Star Citizen.

An important message to developers.

And another.

On the topic of reading.

But then chiding someone else for not reading.

More chiding.

Deep thoughts on blizzard.

More deep thoughts.

Oh wait, reading is bad again.

And that's just from the 5 most recent pages of deeqism. God knows how many brain cells died when he typed that. Please do not encourage him.

Why am I worth the effort you put into this post?

Wow, that final push. Congratulations.

I was keeping an eye on the last few hours. Something fishy was going on. A huge batch of pledges came in to get it over $600K, and then they started losing money as new pledges came in. It was like someone propped it up to get it over $600K, and then started reducing their pledge as other new pledges came in.

I mean we've seen crowdfunding pops before, but they made 20% of the required minimum in the last day, all to end at just %0.3 above the required minimum. It's all very unusual.
Sounds like there is a system in place, under the hood, that allows people to "donate while no one else is"

So, you have your two options:
1) Donate
2) Donate as reserve only.

When anyone else donates, it replaces those reserves -- so, the money from those reserves go back to their owners.

---

Certainly an effective way to ensure survival of a kickstarter campaign, if the amount funded so far is high enough and warrants usage of this type of donating system.

Releasing a game as GOLD when isn't GOLD yet. Cool.

Goes back to what I said earlier, companies taking advantage of (abusing) the "patching" practice to rush out products and use us as their testers.

"This has invoked the always entertaining spectacle of users flocking to the forums looking for technical support for their pirated copies of the game."

Yup. Shot yourselves in the foot with that approach to anti-piracy, eh?

Not to mention, you're giving users a poor first impression of the game and risk that being a permanent impression of the game, and therefore damaging word-of-mouth advertising.

Derp.

I seriously wonder, in this day and age, if any MMO doesn't plan to go FTP play at some point, as apart the design of the game? IE, 36 months (in their numbers), and it switches. They'd be crazy not to plan ahead, based on the sheer number of mmos that went down the same road before them.


No.

It's bad to 1) have sudden, 2) change, 3) not to mention early on (3 years), 4) that brings forth F2P, because there's nothing really good about F2P. F2P will always mean the game consists of an element that isn't fun, "grinding"; an element that tries to force you to pay for things in-game.

It's sad really, that gaming has come to this.

This is what happens when you sign up to a game that forces patches on you; patches that make changes whether or not you agree with those changes.
Not at all like any other online game right?
Well, exactly. So, we need to stop playing online games then.

Why would any waste their time playing competitively over the net. Having a ping, or any bit of latency would ruin a match.

This is why we have LAN parties, so games can be fair and equal (serious) with a 0 ping connection.

Would rather do that and/or play it in an arcade.

I feel sorry for this current generation of kids who grew up not knowing this.

He's right for not wanting to show the video because he knows people are dumb. Despite having a "under development" message on the screen (of a video), he knows people are still too dumb to read or recognize/realize what that message means or entails.

Nevertheless, I still wouldn't show a video because first impressions are most important, and despite "under development" message, it's still important to have first impression be the best/accurate one.
