Re: Thanks for abandoning your backers and supporters, Josh

To the malcontents... I have been an outspoken (if unsolicited) supporter and advocate of Josh Parnell over the years. That said, I have to say that dismissing doubts regarding Josh's handling of the development of Limit Theory by labeling critics with a pejorative term is both unfair and unconstru...

Re: Movies!

Really? I found the narrative to be poorly paced and lacking in coherence. I would posit that beyond the choppy plot the movie also featured tortured internal logic that left me openly questioning character actions and motivations. The screenplay uses bits and pieces of a number of iconic comic boo...

Re: Movies!

i watched Batman v Superman Dawn of Justice this afternoon. I enjoyed it as a one off action superhero film but they weren't the characters I grew up with. I don't agree with the "absolutely positively brilliant" review given by the Sun but it wasn't bad at all. :angel: Really? I found the narrativ...

Re: No Man's Sky

Procedural is a lot easier to do than not. :) Procedural is a lot easier to do than not. :) The point still stands that Hello Games is a small, independent studio. Yes, they signed on with Sony. But along with significant funding that also carries major contractual obligations. I suspect that Hello...

Re: Proof

Not even really sure I care. Then why get on a soapbox? If Josh's own (repeated) pronouncements on the subject are not sufficient, see Zanteogo's posts in this thread. On a personal note, I was never as invested in Limit Theory the game as I was in Josh Parnell the promising (and naive) developer. ...

Re: What do you think is the most likely future of humanity?

Outlining one key piece regarding that article that always needs to be remembered; If the consensus comes up in these conversations at all, it's usually used in one of two ways. Either advocates of the consensus use it as a rhetorical club—essentially asking why anybody wouldn't agree with all the ...

Re: Crowdfunding Win. Kickstarter Campaign Forced to Pay!

Was this not established to be a case of fraud? ...and that is where the line gets muddy. One judge's/prosecuter's definition of fraud vs another's can be up for debate. Hence the reason only one state pursued charges and not all 50. ...And I don't mean a textbook definition of the term. One person...

Re: Crowdfunding Win. Kickstarter Campaign Forced to Pay!

If a state AG's office decides to come after you, will any court require them to pay the $20,000 you spent on lawyers? The cost of litigiousness is not just direct. It's also in the projects that never get attempted out of concern that some offended soul or politically ambitious AG can destroy your...

Re: Crowdfunding Win. Kickstarter Campaign Forced to Pay!

I am with Silverware on this one. Even in cases when fraud is likely to have been perpetrated an overwhelming preponderance of evidence should be required. If legal action becomes an accepted response by dissatisfied supporters, nuisance suits will flood crowfunding. I suspect that outright fraud is...

Stasis

Drum roll please. A rare success story: an indie Kickstarter that has been released to excellent reviews. The game description from Steam: "STASIS is a point-and-click, sci-fi, horror adventure game played from a unique isometric perspective. STASIS intertwines a gruesome narrative with retro advent...

Re: XCom 2

Can't say I'm all happy about having to wait, but I'm glad they are able to take the responsible decision and polish things a few months more. True dat. But it would have been nice for them to get it polished FIRST and then announce. Hype is real, and disintegrates over time if not carefully manage...
