More Project Eternity Goals

The Kickstarter for Project Eternity announces further goals for Obsidian Entertainment's upcoming role-playing game. With the fundraiser passing the 50,000 backer plateau, they reveal a new backer reward: "a new dungeon experience" for the game called The Endless Paths of Od Nua. They also reveal a new $2.4 million stretch goal as well as new add-on aspects of the campaign, including the ability for backers to separately add an early access beta code or a digital strategy guide to their reward package.

Yet now the US is wallowing in CC misery. The majority canadian of my credit cards now fail to work in the US because they're chipped, and require extra verification to work properly at things like gas pumps. I've even had them fail at regular terminals in stores. This has led me to get a US bank account and credit card so I can avoid the entire mess until you guys catch up. The US is about 5 years behind the times on things like chip technology. Though the rest of the world is 10 years behind the times on paying with your phone, you could do that in parts of asia back in early 2000ish.


I had a chip card in Holland in the late 90s, and I never really saw much purpose to the damn thing. It was on the same card as my debit card, so instead of having to swipe my card and type a four digit pin and pay out of my account, I had to preload the chip, then I'd hold it near the chip "reader", and after a few seconds it would deduct the chip amount.

What kind of benefit does that offer me, the customer? First of all, I have money on that card, so if I lose it or it gets stolen, I'm out of that money. I also have to go by special ATMs to "preload" the chip. How is this in any way, shape or form more convenient OR more secure than just swiping a card, typing a pin, and having it come out of my bank account?

Fuck chip payments. The only one it benefits is the store owner because he gets his money quicker. (and the chip company...)

But why won't your CC's work? Are they still a Master or Visa card? The chip wouldn't do anything in a normal CC reader.
