Kickstarters have a dismal record. I am constantly amazed that people throw money at these projects considering some of the wacky designs.

I think Kickstarter needs to weed out the charlatans.

Yeah, I'm not expecting a perfect game. Just a good one. And all reviews (and yours) point towards that...

I would be shocked if they rebuilt lucasarts, that time is long passed. As seph says, they'd much prefer to let someone else assume the risk and heavy lifting, and reap the benefits.

But they can already do that! Publishers. Development studios typically don't have the cash on hand for a 3 year cycle so they partner with a publisher, get cash up front, and deliver to the publisher and they take a cut for financing the work. Really though Disney has so much cash that they shouldn't bother with a publisher. And contracting it out means they are the publisher. The two roles are equivalent in Disney's case. They can either be the publisher who pays a studio up front for development or they can just develop themselves and get the same since they don't have a cash crunch.

Disney is traditionally very cutthroat when it comes to games. Ask the Split/Second folks...

What?! Disney have just demonstrated that they are idiots. Entertainment software is a huge growth sector. If they think they can't make shit-loads of money with it then they just aren't doing it right - the money is there even if they're blind to it.

Edit: Especially with the franchises that Disney owns that can be made into games.

That's kind of the whole point. They'd rather make the free money licensing than having to actually do work and take risk.

LucasFilm/LucasArts thought it was quite well to make games in-house. Contracting out to the proverbial "India call center" I don't believe is the best way to ensure the best quality and therefore longevity of their brand. They should hire in-house, and build up a branch of their operation that rivals their film branches today.

I would be shocked if they rebuilt lucasarts, that time is long passed. As seph says, they'd much prefer to let someone else assume the risk and heavy lifting, and reap the benefits.

Sorry for the folks that lost their jobs.

Also, selfishly, I hope this means Marvel and Star Wars end up in Lego Dimensions.

Doesn't matter. I'm selling the media, not the movie. I don't own it. Never did. I do own the case and disc however and I have every right to sell it and every right to rip it before I do. It's like when I was younger and I used to have a massive record/tape collection I spent thousands of dollars on. As far as I'm concerned I've already paid for that music, not the medium. The idea that one is supposed to pay over and over again for the same product on a different medium is preposterous.

You don't really believe that do you? You're just talking trash, right?

While I certainly agree if you purchase the album, there is no issue with making a cassette tape for your use. However, when you sell the album now two people have the music and the artist only received proceeds from one. Surely you can see that's not right.


Cutter's practicing law now!!!! woot woot! AH-hahahahahahaha...

So my weekend was ruined by BS Blu-ray DRM. ...

WOW, thanks for that bit of info.

I've used TMT (5, I believe?) and anydyd and have been lucky to avoid Cinavia, so far. Basically, slysoft (or the devs left of them now) has said they're aware of it, and will address it later.

Based on all your trouble there, it's almost like they're trying to drive people to digital (drm'd) purchases, eh?

Sooooo looking forward to this

More content is always welcome, but I've pretty much accepted I will never complete this game...too many side quests and too much OCD.

I do hope the city is big...

Here’s a Batman Arkham HD cover & June release date. Not that it’s happening or anything…

Wish they'd hurry up and finalize that. I've been pretty much only gaming on the ps4 lately, and would love another Asylum run...

Gabe's Valve's TF2 got STOMPED!

TF2 was released in 2007...

If it takes 9 years to come up with something to "stomp" a title, I'd say the title has done it's job.

ps. Gaben must have touched your no hole pretty hard to cause this much whiney teenage angst.


Um, that's how he always sounds...

Yeah can't wait for it hey. There's going to be so much content available for it. Surprised you didn't know about it though, it was part of their reveal back during last years E3.

I'd not been following it very closely.

Honestly, that has me semi interested in the game now, and I'd previously wrote it off...

I picked up the new Doom and I'm actually really looking forward to it - both singleplayer and the snapmap thing. No intention of playing multiplayer and I figure it couldn't be any worse than Doom 3, right?

I don't care about multi either, but whats the snapmap?

edit: Reading about it now - that's like the first thing about this new doom that sounds interesting!

edit again: Ok, that's fucking awesome!
