Borderlands 3 Review
Maybe We Should Be Worried About KFC's Visual Novel…
I'm hoping I can make Alice from Superjail.
@timothyss10: I'd also recommend Transistor, as it's my personal favorite among Supergiant's games.
This could have some legal ramifications. If I'm not mistaken, you've got to make a lot of obvious and clear disclaimers about this kind of stuff if it could possibly involve children.
Could people just...not? I mean...for ****'s sake, just take a step back and reevaluate your priorities.
I dislike microtransactions actively "ruining" games, but I would waste the time or the effort to send a death threat to someone that likely had no control over the decision (developers rarely have a say in matters of monetization, from what I hear).
Stop giving uninformed fools more ammunition to demonize us. The vast majority of us gamers are a reasonable bunch, but this death threat nonsense just makes us an easy target for people looking for a scapegoat.
Brilliant! Clearly, we should be paying you the big bucks.
@vega2505: Don't be ridiculous.
You have to call it "life redistribution" if you want to avoid prison time.
@Chronologo: The greater tragedy in all this is that situations like this have "poisoned the well" for other Kickstarters.
When news of this first broke, a lot of the reactions were "This is why I don't crowdfund games". Between this and projects like Mighty No. 9, people have all the reason in the world to be skeptical of backing a crowdfunding campaign. There are a lot of promising Kickstarter projects that haven't met their goal because people feared they would be "another Mighty No. 9", and there will probably be plenty in the future that won't make it because "it'll end up like Shenmue 3".
But I doubt Ys Net cares. Epic waved a wad of cash in front of them, they took it, and now they're doing everything but being upfront about why they've gone for a timed exclusivity deal. They've got people who have estimated the potential damage that will cause them, and have deemed it an acceptable risk.
No KotOR, no Force Unleashed, and no Battlefront (classic)? I guess I'll pass.
@Barighm: That sounds pretty shady, especially when the Epic Game Store wasn't a thing when the Kickstarter was raising funds. Though, to play Devil's Advocate, I don't think the Kickstarter specifically mentioned Steam (or any other particular storefront) when talking about the PC version.
Still...it seems ill-advised to pull these kind of shenanigans with a crowd-funded project. You're bound to burn some bridges that way (especially when the Epic Game Store is objectively inferior as a storefront to the alternatives).
@esqueejy: FEEL THE BACKHAND OF JUSTICE!!!
