I simply don't see how this thing is still raking in millions per week.
Well believe it or not, there are still people who haven't heard of this game and many more are on the edge of their decision making. "Ah hell fine, I'll donate, here's my money!"
And I have to say, if you go to their site, it really does make you want to pitch in. They've done an amazing job with that aspect of it. IMO, the Blues readers are more of a grizzled old veteran PC gamer and are much more likely to hold off supporting this until release or definitive game play is shown.
Hey! I resemble that remark! Damn... has it really been 16 years since I started reading/lurking here?
Anyways, I actually kicked in WAY back in the beginning when it was on Kickstarter. And with the upgrades since then on new ships, I've got about $500 into it. Call me naive or what ever, but I think Roberts and crew will put out a top notch game that will bring a lot of the old Wing Commander vibe back.
Some here obviously don't know what the meaning of a ponzi scheme is. Everyone that has donated to the game does not get anything back. Crowd sourcing has become a big thing and Roberts has quite a reputation as well in the gaming industry. I really doubt he would be scamming. If he is, this would seriously hurt the industry as a whole and would be one of the best kept secrets between all four studios and all the employees working there.This comment was edited on Nov 24, 2013, 01:21.
