Extremely pertinent kotaku post.
I was saying the same thing to a friend the other day.

Besides some DLC (which is usually a hat or something) you get the preorder in your hands the same day nowadays. on steam or at the store.

preorders are money in advance for retailers.

kickstarter could be the same thing but looks more like an investment without shares

Peter has a good point

A ton of cash is worth throwing away your pride and artistic vision for 99% of the adults these days. Why would be game developers any different than musicians, movie directors, writers, etc...

Maybe Molineux is getting old and boring as a game maker, but cut the man some slack and accept that he's more experienced and probably altogether wiser than most bedroom indie devs at least on a business level...

No, because for the fifty billionth time a kickstarter pledge is not an investment.

That's just words man.
A KS pledge is MONEY. And Oculus invested it.
It's not an investment for YOU (since you were not given shares) but it is money to spend for THEM.

If you wish we can go into the economics of preorders and such and why they kinda suck, but for now, i'm sure you can see that Oculus got their money from gamers who wanted a gaming device (not a social device), made prototypes with that money, made publicity and whatnot with that money and now they are selling to Facebook and turning into a social thing instead of a gaming thing. They are pretty much screwing their hardcore gamer supporters.

This sale is made possible by the money of the Kickstarter supporters.
And I BET that at least half of those supporters would not have pledged money for Facebook...

Can you see now the problem ?

I always thought PS Torment was so overrated...
Oops ! I thought it was overrated too. And throw Baldur's Gate in there too
I enjoyed D&D dungeon crawlers (EOB, Wizardry) but none of the isometrics (Torment, Baldur, Icewind, Neverwinter, etc). I dunno why.

(I guess people will have some not very pleasant answers as to why :))

People usually get inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame long after they are incapable of releasing a decent album...

I guess it also applies to the Video Game Hall of Fame

Interesting point below that the machine might run some Linux.

We might have heard something from Microsoft if this "console" would use some Windows to directly compete with the Xbox right?...

Wow, weird. It's like this game is saying "Hey, like me!" and I'm just getting a creepy vibe from it. I'll wait for player feedback methinks.

welp, this is what pot amongst other recreational drugs does to your brains as a side effect. gets you paranoid and feeling all sorts of "vibes" =)))

get a lemonade, look back at arkane and bethesda and you will see that most probably it shall really be a GOOD game
