Some of you may have already seen this. I haven't logged into youtube for a couple weeks so I'm trying to catch up now. Sven Dinkel visited Angry Joe in Texas and they played Original Sin 2 in co-op.

Whoops, missed out on the $25 Kickstarter, got in at $30. Divinity Original Sin was great, I have high hopes for D:OS 2 and the Enhanced Edition which is coming out... soon?

I've put in some serious hours(for me) on D3 Patch 2.3, now it's time to start the PoEt replay + expansion. Dual Wield Barb, I suspect.

There's a $26 pledge box now for those that missed at $25. I enjoyed the hell out of the first one as well. And the enhanced ed. is supposed to be coming out this fall, the same with Wasteland 2. Oh and don't forget Xcom2 comes out in November.

Yes. Entitlement is only if you are asking for something for free. With a commericial product it is called customer feedback, not entitlement.

And S.S. isn't entitlement we pay into that, as a lot of other things.

Welfare... now we are getting into entitlement areas.

By the old definition, "the right to guaranteed benefits under a government program, as Social Security or unemployment compensation". Yes, we pay into those program. Well, most of us. When I say this is the Age of Entitlement I mean all those people who are not entitled but feel that they are. Like those people that would rather live off the system then work. Not those of us who actually pay into the system and pay taxes our entire lives. We are entitled because we supported those systems.

I won't even touch on the way those entitlements have become another form of welfare here is the US for those who have never put a dime into the system. Those that come here from other countries to retire collecting the maximum amount of SS because they got three relatives to sign a piece of paper stating they made top dollar someplace else. Let us leave that one alone.

I don't really care to go into all the reasons why people do what they do. Why they feel what they feel. Unless I know them personally I don't really care. Call me callus but life has made me this way. In todays society so many people's sense of entitlement encompasses far more than just their welfare and other aid the government gives them. A majority feel everything is an entitlement. When I am called out on a service call to repair something they own and they feel I should do that at no cost when I have zero obligation to do that yet they still expect it. They get offended when I quote them fees and advise them of charges. Isn't that a form of entitlement? Although a false one. I experience this numerous times a week. Sometimes several times a day. There is a deep rooted problem there. Anyway, in my original post I was loosely relating this. Gamers demanding it all and cheap compared to a large portion of our society expecting everything for free because they have the nerve to expect that.

So when people think they are owed a certain type of game, a game that they want... even if it is not the game the majority wants or that the developer themselves even want to make... well, they are showing signs of entitlement. Maybe it is entitlement in a broader sense but to me it is still entitlement.

Damn that Kickstarter is so well put together. Must have had a whole team of people just working solely the campaign.

Why the fuck can't they call the first one "Divinity: Original Sin" and the second one "Divinity 2: Second Coming" or something? Dumb.

I liked the suggestion from a pcgamesn writer when the sequel was first teased - Divinity: Derivative Sin.

It's marketing, you capitalize on sales if the name is good. The name is in good standing. Hello?

Because they already have a game called Divinity II?
Seems an odd thing to get upset about.

I'm mostly kidding. But it is a name that feels a little awkward and unwieldy...

Seems you are reinforcing my statement a bit. You don't think they did enough with Original Sin? You want more than what they are promising with Original Sin II?

I agree we should ask for more or the best out of everything in life. But we seem to beat up developers over it while we give so many others a pass. (Look at our current political Administration and the several before it.) I am simply saying that Original Sin was/is far above average. Demanding more from them starts to cross over that line. Especially when you could have purchase it at such a low cost during the kickstarter and after it's retail release. It's like asking for AAA quality from an indie studio releasing a $15 game. D:OS wasn't much more than that and has been cheaper than that while on sale. In my eyes it's equivalent to buying a candy bar and expecting a steak dinner. It's just not being reasonable... not that people will ever become reasonable.

They should use names like hardware manufactures do:
Divinity VFR/3-6700GT Plus

I love these guys. You can't ask for more from any developer... though some people might think otherwise. We are living in the Age of Entitlement!
