Not sure where that's coming from.
From the usual hate train.

DF has learned a lot since then, both through their own Kickstarter projects (Massive Chalice) and through other developers' projects.
They have. MC was a transparent process, the communication was much, MUCH better. I bought Spacebase-DF9 in Early Access and i know the risks of crowdfunding. Projects can go belly up. I was angry at DF not for cancelling the game, but for their lack of communication. DF9 was already an endangered project, before they put it up on Steam and Schafers closure notice on this seemed very arrogant and detached. Lack of good communication was the reason for all this bruhaha about Broken Age. As a backer following the video documentation, all was good. For the public it was just ... wtf did they do?

I'm pretty confident that Psychonauts 2 will be delivered. It may not live up to the hype but it'll be delivered and will most likely be a solid follow-up.
I also think that this project will be handled much better. Still, i'm holding my money back until a release, i did not back Psychonauts 2. DF burned me once, i prefer to stay sceptical a while longer.

It will not be bottomless. There will be something at the bottom to collect the money.
Fig.co is like a Black Hole. You throw money into the bottomless pit and hope that you will get something back some day, like Hawking Radiation

I wonder why Tim decided to go with that crowdfunding service instead of Kickstarted as he used for Broken Age?
Because it was founded by Justin Bailey, former COO of Double Fine. And Schafer is part of the advisory board, beside people like Brian Fargo or Feargus Urquhart.

This is a company that can take an afternoon off to make a re-skinned mount, throw it on the store for 25$ and watch it sells like hot cakes so of course anything they make will be highly anticipated.

At this point, they could have Chris Metzen shit in a box and it would be highly-anticipated.
"highly-anticipated" is nothing more than a marketing blurb, used by marketing people and lazy journalists.

mother fuck, bought a copy of quake 1 because i just want a version that runs with the music and all and no mounting images or anything and they're selling it without the soundtrack.
The soundtrack is there. Its played ingame and you can rip it to any format you like, when you mount Gog's image file to a virtual drive.

My daughter...will probably not even notice the difference.
Because there won't be any visual difference. Thats the beauty of smart compression methods.

It's more of a spin-off than anything.
Yes, it is a spin-off. Wasnt that obvious even a few years ago?

Those horrible mobile sprite graphics are an abomination.
Has nothing to do with "mobile". There are several in-depth analysis on what went wrong.

Here's one:

... but people are going to expect an RTS in space based on the name, and they're going to be majorly put off by this.
People expect NOTHING, because this game was nearly invisible until now. And now you can clearly see that it is a typical "flat" RTS. And its not called Homeworld 3 or Homeworld 4

What could Kojima have done to deserve that treatment?
Kojima was not special in receiving such treatment. This was common to Konami. For example programmers were forced to work in pachinko halls as punishment for whatever their supervisors thought they did wrong.

Wasn't he destroyed at the end of SS2?
SHODAN "copied" herself into a crew member of the Von Braun, which was able to flee in an escape pod, secretly transformed to a midwife.

Well I can hold out hope, but I get the feeling it'll be dumbed down for today's idiot generation of console players.
Why should they do this? This is not a project from an AAA publisher, who has to sell millions of copies just to break even.

Here's to hoping it's not just a cash grab! Bioshock was fine as a spiritual successor but it never really provided me with the same level of enjoyment as System Shock so this gives me something fun to look forward to.
Since this project will not have the budget that Take2 put in Bioshock ... no need to pander to the mainstream. SS3 might not be as polished and gorgeous like Bioshock was, but it probably might be a bit more complex, less "shootery" than Bioshock.

I mean, if they had to remake one, why didn't they remake best-in-class FF6 rather than one of the most overwrought entries in the series?
Because FF7 is WAY more popular than FF6. And they remembered the hysterical reactions of the crowd, when they showed the FF7 tech demo on the PS3.

The rest of us, like Schafer, just want to play games.
We want more than that We do want a better world. But not while being a complete moron. Like any form of extremist mindset, where compromise and balance harbors the root of all evil. I had my share of "discussions" with people who only think in extremes and absolutes. There is no discussion to be had ...

Yeah, back to topic ... Schafer is a nice guy and his company has learned from some mistakes. I will gladly buy their games, when they are released and turn out to be fine. But crowdfunding them ... nah, i learned MY lesson

I think it's strange that GGers can't tolerate feminists being outraged over alleged sexism in games, but when someone makes a joke at their expense, they react with just as much "righteous outrage" as Anita and company ever did.
Its because they are of the exact same restricted mindset like some of those ultra feminists. There is only one truth about anything and if you do not share my opinion (which is the truth, btw.) you are my sworn enemy and deserve to die.

Spacebase-DF9 was an early access game on Steam. You just bought into an alpha, its not the same thing as being a backer.
Its called different, but its the same. Early Access is a crowdfunding variation. When you order an Early Access game, there is no security that this game will succeed. There is always a risk that all goes belly up, that it can transform into something else than you originally "bought".

Why all the DF hate?
BECAUSE!!!!

DF fucked up with Spacebase-DF9. I was a backer and i will never give them a cent in advance. Not because the game failed (as a backer, i have to accept this risk), but because they werent upfront with the financial situation. They just closed doors. Bang!

But seeing that Massive Chalice went fine, that DF learned to communicate better and be more transparent, i will gladly buy their games ... when they are released

I'm with you there. Not giving them any money, they picked their SJW politics, let them live with it.
I guess, they can live with "it" (whatever "it" is) pretty good. I guess they dont need your money. Nore mine. But i will give them money for Dott and Full Throttle Remastered and Psychonauts 2, when these games are released.
