Dafuq...

Shit's about to hit the fan :/

When I first learned about global warming 20 years ago or so, one of my first realizations was "if the permafrost goes, that's it, game over." Really upsetting. Methane (or Meethane to you Brits) is 20x more powerful at retaining heat than CO2 and stays in the atmosphere for 20 years. It's about to get hot as Hell in here, and no, it won't be a dry heat.
WERE ALL GOING TO DIE!!!!!!

It's not overly complex, but one small break or weakness in your defense will quickly kill/infect large portions of most city setups. Your civilians are stupid as can be and do NOT run fast enough to not get immediately infected if you don't wall them in and defend them appropriately.

That sounds exactly like the Jerusalem scene from World War Z!

Sounds like the campaign is just too hard. Hopefully that gets tweaked.

Or use a cheat to offset the difficulty.

The majority are labelled EARLY ACCESS REVIEW.
Have to wait and see what leaving the EA program does for sales and reviews.

70% so far based on launch reviews.

I bought this back in Early Access, probably a year ago. If you like building massive forts, and having enemies run up to those forts and get annihilated by your insane defense(or destroy your town because your plan was flawed) then this is probably the game for you.

I DO like that! Kind of like a Total War but for base building / tower defense. Cool!

Right now I'm playing Tyranny and occasionally pop into GW2. I am also working on a new Elsweyr guide for the Zygor Guide addon. The Zygor team dropped support before Summerset. So I've been maintaining it as best I can ever since. Lua script is not a language I'm familiar with, but I like the challenge, and it feels good to help the ESO community.

It's even better than this, they sold exclusive first play rights to Backers ($100+) in the actual pledge, and showcased a playable version on E3 that they didn't give to Backers. So they didn't just renege on the deal, they fucked their backers over hard on that point.

This isn't so much amnesia as it is malicious asshattery as it would have cost them nothing to give backers the E3 demo.

I am honestly baffled they thought this would go over well. Their pledges are pretty funny reads when you consider Deepsilver already put to the wall that there will not be a physical PC DVD version because this violates the EPIC deal. LMAO

Except you miss the part on the active Kickstarter campaign where they listed, in bold, "Windows PC Physical Copy. Windows PC Digital Copy." They never explicitly said "Steam" as the platform. People assumed "Windows PC Digital Copy" meant Steam because Steam was the only non-publisher digital platform at the time.

However, Ys Net did not keep backers informed about what they were doing. In the end, the fault is squarely on Ys.

At the very least they intentionally misled customers.

Except they didn't for all the reasons mentioned in the first paragraph from in my comment below. Yet, concurrently, they are at fault for not being transparent with their backers/customers. In the end it is their fault.

They sent out the Kickstarter based questionary where you decide which platform and version you want specifically, and people could pick Steam and picked steam. This selection is not optional, it's binding. If you as developer say you ship with nude blokes wearing a tiara then you have to deliver on that no matter what. Changing this post survey is a violation of the KS TOS.

To boot, they offered PHYSICAL DVD versions, not with a code but with the actual game, which Deep Silver reneged on.

Finally, Deep Silver also reneged on the trial feat in the backer rewards. Backers do not receive an early trial anymore. So altogether really classy behavior by the parties involved.

I think you just don't know a lot how Kickstarters work to be honest, this survey you get from SK projects is an actual KS based thing which KS monitors. People were not just led to believe it comes on Steam, most people ALREADY PICKED THEIR PLATFORM months before this news. Not to mention the other things that they suddenly "forgot" they owe backers.
Money causes amnesia, news at eleven.

What's it like being a professional troll?

I wasn't talking about what happened after the Kickstarter campaign. I was specifically talking about the FAQ they posted for the campaign.

Deep Silver wasn't a consideration during the Kickstarter campaign so stop bringing it up. It's not relevant to my post.

I backed multiple Kickstarters including the Myst 25th Anniversary Kickstarter at the $250 level. I know how they work, and I am quite familiar with the surveys. I'm not referring to any of that.

I was specifically talking about the language on the campaign itself. It didn't mention "Steam." It merely said, "Windows PC Digital Copy." That's what people read when they backed. That said, I also said Ys Net is at fault for not managing backer expectations. If people expected Steam during the campaign, then they should honor it regardless of what happened years later.

They explicitly let people think it would be on Steam as with 96%+ of all games. They did not come out ahead of time and let people know before they pledged, they hid the fact. They knew KS would have been a catastrophe, if that's clearer.

Let's be clear here. I made those points in BOTH of my posts. Here, I'll highlight the comments to make it explicitly clear:

Post 1: "The fault is really on Ys Net for not managing backer expectations."

Post 2: "[Ys net] are at fault for not being transparent with their backers/customers. In the end it is their fault."

It begs several questions.

1. Have these organisms always existed in the Atlantic (as this is where most hurricanes form)?

I don't think it's specific to the Atlantic. Typhoons are the same weather phenomena after all and there are cases of FEB in Asia. Whether or not it's on their beaches yet (or they're willing to acknowledge as much) is a whole other matter.

That much is certain. I've no doubts cases of the Vibrio vulnificus caused by Typhoon Haiyan/Super Typhoon Yolanda in 2013 exist. However, with countries like the Philippines, a flesh-eating virus could mask itself among other illnesses caused by the country's less than ideal sanitary conditions. It also doesn't help that government officials live in a fantasy bubble. In first-world nations, in the aftermath of a significant weather event over regional oceans, it is much easier to spot them due to their rapidly growing geographical anomaly.

At least that's how the evidence looks to me.

FEB (flesh eating bacteria) at your favorite beach.
Another benefit of Global Warming. Allthumbsup

Though not in the direct path, Delaware was the state hit hardest by Hurricane Sandy. The flesh-eating bacteria is not entirely the direct result of global warming, but the result of hurricanes bringing these dangerous sea-based organisms inland and along beaches. However, climate change is directly responsible for more powerful hurricanes. So it's a domino effect.

> 2017, Hurricane Harvey - reference 1, reference 2, reference 3

> 2005, Hurricane Katrina - reference, was then referred to Vibrio Illnesses

There's evidence that this illness appeared after Hurricane Andrew in 1992 but people weren't calling it Vibrio. Actually, they didn't know what it was.

It begs several questions.

1. Have these organisms always existed in the Atlantic (as this is where most hurricanes form)?
2. Is there any evidence that climate change is mutating benign organisms into deadly monsters?
3. Are the organisms adapting to changes in their environment that cause them to be more carnivorous?
4. Is there any evidence that large tropical storms can carry these organisms to other areas in the Atlantic, and if so, do they survive and thrive?

Pfft. The Neverending Story is based on a book - it's right in the movie! Firestarter is also based on a book, as is The Natural, and Police Academy shouldn't be on best-of lists, even if it truly didn't get repulsive until the sequels, haha.

Whoops. My mistake about The Neverending Story and Firestarter. Still a good year though.
