I like that they are giving out Steam keys to owners of the console version. Not sure about the game, but giving away keys for a duplicate purchase is a smart move.

Nothing wrong with zombie games, just rather play a good one, which this doesn't appear to be. 7 Days to Die looks much superior (and is in its last 24 hours of KS).

Agreed! This looks horrible. I hate a game that doesn't take itself seriously.

I'm hoping they dumb it down.
I still haven't been able to sit through the hour long youtube tutorials for Crusader Kings II.

I'm no lawyer, so perhaps I'm wrong, but a gag order by a judge means you can't discuss the case in question and the legal ramifications of it. I would seriously doubt that you would be allowed continue developing your game, but then somehow not being allowed to talk about said development. Even US law can't be that weird.


I'm not an attorney myself, but I do work for a large law firm and I have a lot of legal experience because of this - my opinion after reading the developers post (and being a backer myself) is that the developers have been advised by their attorneys "keep your mouth shut until this is over".

You don't need a gag order from a judge. Human nature is to talk about problems, that's also a good way to open yourself up to further damage or to make a problem worse.

Unfortunate. This is the last KS I kicked in to, as I loved the idea of setting up my own barricaded fortress. Maybe this is a Phil Fish situation, where a former dev or financier wanted to take their ball and go home.

I'm in on this one too. I don't get the feeling from following the update that the developer is anything except enthusiastic. Their original pitch video showed that considerable preliminary work had been done already.

I read through what info there was this morning and it seems like a lot of speculation on what the problem is, no one knows for sure. At least development work continues.

Can't wait. I bought during the Alpha and got for a good price - besides checking out the new engine and the game mechanics I haven't really played - looking forward to this one!

Honestly, I don't give a shieet about Half Life no more. It's an old game that was awesome for it's time but really is just another typical FPS these days...

This is what everyone thought last time too. Then Half-Life 2 blew the doors down. BOOM. It will happen again too.

Ouya offers store credit of $13.37, so basically sorry we were late here's 13 bucks in credit at the company store - go crazy. Not sure that 13 dollars would make me feel any better about buying this budget console.

I'm so signing this. I pre-ordered the PS4.


Not sure if trolling?

How so?

I read the article which was posted. The article dealt with people who bought the PS4 but hate Microsoft enough to sign the petition asking them restore their controversial DRM. I did not see a link to the petition in the article, and I provided one.

How am I trolling?

I think it's important to remember that KS isn't a purchase per se, but a funding mechanism. Don't KS if you expect 100% guarantee.

I totally agree, and that's what I'm saying. Based on previous contributions I won't be contributing to any more games, regardless of perceived potential.

This does look super cool, and will clearly make it's goal...but after kickstarting a bunch of games last year and experiencing some disappointments, I think I'll wait in the future to see how the game turns out and buy if it's warranted.

I'm still stung by Kickstarting Strike Suit Zero and not only having the game suck, but it going on sale the day of release for half what I contributed.

I stopped into Gamestop to see if they had any PS4 demo kits yet, I asked the manager how the PS4 vs Xbox One thing was going so far. He flipped up a clipboard with preorder sheets attached, the PS4 one was pages long and the Xbox One was less than a single page. Just a one store anecdote but I found it interesting.

That's how it is everywhere - XBox One is something people don't want, a few killer games and they will get a small following, but I'd say that the PS4 is going to dominate Next Gen for years to come.

Yeah, how dumb it that. Focus always on content first. His stetch goals are exorbinatn at any rate. A million for each goal? Nope, wouldn't touch this with a 10 foot pole.

I'm in. I'm really not that excited about this game and I only put in like 30 bucks, figure if it epic fails that's less then I paid for a lot of games I still haven't played or hated over the years, on the other hand if he makes it work then I feel like I got a good deal, only time will tell.

Im simply stunned by this news. Speechless.

Seems like a great way for Gearbox to get started on a future bankruptcy.

I watched his videos this morning. Seems like the reaction he is trying for is violence. I'm sure that if he keeps going, he'll find it.

It's funny that I've been holding off buying this for my IPad until I had a long plane flight, which I have tomorrow. I didn't buy it before, because why wouldn't it be available when I want to get it. Instead, I bought X-Com.
