If Brazil is pissed at this, they probably never read the test results of their so called "water", which is sewage by European definition. Yes, literally untreated sewage. It isn't water at all. You are not supposed to even SWIM in it. And if you do, you are supposed to immediately clean yourself... ask yourself this, who calls something like that water !

I have a feeling that this will be a mediocre game, maybe they can prove me wrong on that but we'll see.

I really hope not, they have built a pretty rich universe and, for me anyway, enjoyable gameplay. I really hope they don't eff this up.

I don't have that feeling, I expect a pretty solid game.

Same here, more Mass Effect is always good

The problem is that if you had any idea how game development works you'd not be surprised at this at all.... even decent indy devs can end up running themselves against a rock, feature creeping and never ending up with a fun product that's worthy to be released. Game development isn't a science where you mix ideas and suddenly they produce a fun game out of thin air once you input X amount of money.... and "street cred" means jack shit nowadays. The digital sales landscape has drastically changed the past 2 years.

What you say and mean is total nonsense. Just because you don't like crowdfunding games we should wipe these above mentioned games out of existence or what? Because that would have been the result had your oppinion any sway in gamer communities (thankfully most of us are old enough to know what patience means, and we don't cry over 20$ lost on 1 project of 20 ,p)

Btw, FIG and all those other platforms that are not KS and indiegogo are another matter imo.

With all due respect there's a huge difference between patience and expectation. My patience is based on the expectation of what the company pitches to me (the backer), what they say to the media, and in dev videos. I can assure you that my reaction to crowdfunding and early access is a product of their failure to deliver on their promises.

It's based on experience. Every single project I backed has yet to be fully released. I've backed non game projects like an animated series called Hullabaloo; created by former Disney animation professionals. If a few of these projects missed their target date or were released late I wouldn't mind, but virtually all of them have done this proving to me that for the most part crowdfunding is a dismal failure. Basically the only thing that I backed that turned out to be successful was MADE, a video game museum in Oakland, California. They were raising funds to keep their museum open for the next few years.

I really appreciate your point of view on this matter but you have to understand something. When someone is repeatedly lied to, taken for a sucker, not given what they paid for according to the pitch eventually this erodes trust. When these pitch people make promises to potential backers they better deliver. So until I see more evidence of companies actually delivering on their promises I stand by what I said. I will not back crowdfunded or buy early access games.

I always respect your opinion I know you had a ton of bad experiences, and I can't blame you for being doubtful of the whole system, but for many of us we had no such thing. I didn't back a single thing (yet) that didn't deliver exactly what was promised (for Star Citizen I am suspecting I get way more, and maybe something different, than I ever wanted). Sure the time-frame was out of whack often, but I worked on enough indy games to know that a sudden increase in scope (or the discovery that what you made SUCKS) can completely wreck your entire timeplan.

The problem is, it seems, that you funded projects you really wanted to come to fruition that severely understated the money they needed and thus are always at the fringe of collapse. $80,000USD for Hullabaloo for example threw up all the red flags for me. There is no way you make animated hand-drawn (whatever that means) movie for 80k -tax -fee.. so they got 470k.. but imo that is still only half to a third of that they really had needed.

Basically I can understand you though. If I had such a bad streak I would not crowdfund either. Currently I have 4 projects still ongoing.. 2 really low impact indy games (1 seems to be on track, 1 seems dead), Star Citizen, and that vampire sidescroller whose name I always forget ;p

So far my success chance was thus... 91% .. I am very VERY picky with my pledges though. For example I looked at that animated steam punk movie back when it was funding phase and dropped it because I thought the entire first notion was wrong. They seemed to have no idea what (HD) animation actually costs.

Did you try Windows 10 App store for real games and not the android ports? That reminds me right back to 2004.. the age before Steam worked at all, the age before anyone had a fucking clue how to do digital.

Microsoft seems to me like the caveman that just discovered the internet, and fails so hard at it that it's beyond comprehension (mine, anyway)

I hate crowdfunding and I hope it dies a painful death it deserves. It's the video game funding equivalent of snake oil salespeople. Like this bullshit.

Short-sighted much? There are plenty of good/great games that wouldn't exist without crowdfunding. Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Broken Age, FTL, Hand of Fate, Sunless Sea, SUPERHOT, Distance, Road Redemption, Grim Dawn, Undertale, Satellite Reign, Elite Dangerous, Divinity: Original Sin, The Long Dark, Xenonauts, Armello, Hand of Fate, Risk of Rain, Banner Saga, LISA, Dropsy...

But yes, let's wipe all those games from existence because of a few failed projects. You may not like crowdfunding but let's not pretend that it hasn't helped bring good games to fruition.

The Fig crowdfunding platform is the next bullshit scam. I stand by what I said and I mean it.

Stretching an escort mission into an entire game AND forcing you to do it in a stealthy manner was perhaps not the best idea.

I wouldn't go that far, the game could be fun.. if the levels had tons of different approaches. But as you have to get the girl to SPECIFIC doors that are only reachable from 1 direction (for the girl) it isn't a stealth game at all, it's a badly done puzzle game imo. And I hate that I don't have the ability to just KO the guards.

I also don't feel like the rewind mechanic adds anything... just few minutes in after making first mistake that required nearly a full minute of rewinding I wished for quicksave and quickload instead....

Same here, the way climbing with the rope/ledges worked drove me nearly insane, not to mention directing the little girl required me to basically kill all the dudes anyway, since she CAN'T CLIMB, and why can't I pick the little girl up and carry her? Or.. throw her

"Build the same city you already have built in the grasslands again then notice the gameplay in this sector is exactly the same as in all other sectors and you can win the sector quest in 10 minutes or less"

Nhhh, I guess this won't be their catchphrase

I just noticed I actually own the season pass.. and thus this DLC.. so I might as well try it

Guess when I got this for cheap on GmG the season pass was part of the deal?

No dude, what's needed are raider attacks with battlerigs

The guitar guy would be paid DLC I guess?

No, that would be a high priority delivery of dangerous goods.

That said, "Battle-rig Simulator" in the mad Max universe would be absolutely awesome.. instead of backwards parking and delivering toilet paper you are in control of a driving fortress, and the retarded AI in these games would have finally found a place ;p

Put the kid in foster care.

They'd have to fix the foster care system as well. It's designed to keep kids in foster care and not get them to families who could adopt them (at least here). Preserve those government jobs at all costs.

You are aware that a 12 year old girl can't be adopted against her will though, right?

Not to mention that I think this would be an absolutely inhumane punishment for this kind of.. childish nonsense.

Ah good ole over reaction; helping people deal with tragic events by severely punishing people involved in unrelated events for the last 10,000+ years.

In every sane country that's an overreaction. Given the US sees mass-shootings on a daily basis it's not. If something had gone down and it came out they knew about it and failed to react they'd be up shit creek. They really don't have a lot of choice in the matter for scenarios like this. Besides, even as a joke that's the sort of thing that warrants a parents attention.

Given what she *wrote* I don't think this is an overreaction. The Emojis are not the problem

Something she *wrote* that was determined to not be a credible threat. To be clear I'm not saying no reaction is correct, but dragging this to juvenile court seems overkill. Who hasn't said or done something stupid when a kid? What if the 'wrong' person had heard or seen it and decided tough action needed to be taken because there's a 1 in 10 million chance the kid could be a mass shooter? Once the threat was determined not to be credible punishment should have been left to the school and parents.

Yeah, but you only know what's a credible threat AFTER and you'd be flamed to hell and back if you let even 1 credible threat pass through because "it's only a 12 old girl" made you ignore it. Point is, making a threat is a crime, be it a 12 year old girl or a 90 year old dude. And I didn't threaten to kill anyone as a X year old I would never do that

Juvenile court isn't gonna put her in jail, 50 social hours or whatever is well enough to teach a lesson.

Rocket League for example locks you from playing ranked for a time if you disconnect or close client mid-match.

Doesn't solve anything, still able to abuse rank power. "oh no, can't play ranked for a couple matches"

Easy solution to this is any disconnect without finishing is a loss no matter what. If you have a shit internet, power goes down, whatever.. it's a loss.

Another solution, Track disconnects and publish that as the players stats and don't actually change the ranking system at all. These people care about their record for their weird little egos.. well punish those egos by telling everyone that they are little bitches.

And how would you handle it in 5v5 games or the like? It's just not a simple solution... even tracking disconnects is not guaranteed solution when games don't have real servers (and even if they do) where server or instance issues can drop entire swaths of players instantly. Where routing and DNS problems can disconnect entire regions etc.

point is, if it's always a loss then that's OK, but then you can't have a system that works like the chess ELO system at all. Since it would not reward skill, but the one with the best DDOS tool

why is this is difficult? quit = loss, end of story. you get disconnected, well thats your own fault for having shitty internet.

I can't think of any game that has successfully even bothered to implement any protection against players quitting. It's absolutely freaking ridiculous that these things aren't accounted for from the beginning of *every* game's network design.

It's ABSOLUTELY FKING RIDICULOUS.

A lot of games "solution" is to just prevent you from doing Alt-F4. LOL. As if that stops anything.

More ridiculous? They apparently don't have logs of this. They want everyone to video record the instances.

AMATEUR developers. Not even amateurs. Amateurs would log every event that happens. These guys are *below* amateur.

Tons of developers give you default win if someone disconnects in a running match... and as you say, CapCom are a bunch of total amateurs if after 30 years of gaming they still don't have even the notion of why this might be a problem in ranked games.

Rocket League for example locks you from playing ranked for a time if you disconnect or close client mid-match.
