we have been through this. Let me make 1 thing clear first
1. This ain't about what is better WMD or Kickstarter, but rather whether kickstarter is bad.
I will tell you right away WMD is a better MODEL/IDEA, but unfortunately they have no other games. The only game they have is a racing game simulator, which I don't care one bit about. There are plenty of race sims and I don't like any of them. I prefer Arcade racing.
So how can I support them when no developer chooses them? And one other thing, I will most definitely say you get a game you wouldn't have received otherwise. I mean seriously do you see another fallout game coming out that is like the old school fallout? And let's someone out there does do it, how do you know it's going to be good? these guys are triple A game developer veterans. I put my faith in them before any other indie developer. And not only that the guys that are creating Wastlenad 2 ARE the original fallout developers lol. How is that not a great thing? Come on man bro, stop being pessimistic.
"The kickstarter model is open to exploitation and that is exactly what has been happening and will continue to happen."
what you talking about bro? lol the scam wasn't even successful, but ok ok ok let's just pretend that it was successfull.... it's been just that one occasion which didn't even get funded! You do know they don't actually take any money out of you unless they reach the goal and end date.
Whilst I agree that they really shouldn't have been able to put it up online, I do think you are SERIOUSLY exaggerating by making it out to be as if that has been happening all along. Gengis bring it down a few notches bro, calm down. I know prefer WMD (as I do) but you can't just start making things up lol.
all you are doing is encouraging devs to milk gamers, use their money and publish a game, keeping all the profits int he process.
Why Gengis are you always looking at it from one point of view? EVEN indie developers you fight against? Come on bro, these guys are not milking anybody, we gamers want a specfic game type that is missing in the games industry, the profit we gamers get is what we gamers love most "THE GAME ITSELF". Get it? Gamers? Get a game? Just read my post again bro.
I am dying to play an epic game like fallout 1+2 or even baldur's gate, but I know for a fact that those days are long gone, but Kickstarter gives us a chance to do just that! Fund a game that we WANT TO SEE in the games industry, one game (type) that has been missing for many years. If you can't understand that then your not as passionate as I am about gaming, in particularly that game genre.
You keep saying to me on TS, why dont more devs jump on the WMD bandwagon? Because people like you dont buy WMD games and support kickstarter, thats why...
Games on WMD = 1 (Project Cars)
Games fully funded on kickstarter = nearly 22,000
If WMD had any other games, I would pledge, but alas as you can see THERE IS ONLY ONE! lol
....? Do I need to say anymore gengis
