It's essentially like the PBS model. The tote bag and a Lawrence Welk DVD aren't really worth $75, but your "support" is supposed to fill in the gap between your reward and your pledge.

For Video games, I usually don't pledge beyond what I would pay for a game normally (so nothing greater than $20 usually). I also backed an album for $2 on another project, and got a digital download and updates regarding the making-of process. Some projects you get more bang for your buck definitely.

It is now the highest funded game on Kickstarter, and continues to climb with about 2ish hours left. Looks like a decent fun game to play when it comes out...18 some months from now. Ha. But I figured it was worth a token $20 to get a copy of the game that will supposedly be so reactive and interesting from an RPG perspective. I'll just cut back on bananas for few weeks.

Torment on Kickstarter. 2ish hours to go if you want to hop in.

Crowdsourcing is interesting. I looked through the various Pledge levels, and none sell any stake of ownership in the game--yet many have paid >$100 for just... stuff. Gimmicks, novellas, recognition in credits, etc. It's weird how much some are willing to pay for these kinds of things. (Yet not ownership rights or royalties or anything--maybe those are for people who call in personally offering >$10,000).

Backing and Investing kind of implies you get some kind of payback for your support though.

Its much more of a donation rather than an investment imo.

Humble Double Fine Bundle has been released:

I haven't played Brutal Legend, but I hear it is pretty amusing and fun. The games likely won't appeal to everyone, but Psychonauts is pretty fun and has a worthwhile story. Stacking has an interesting game mechanic, even if it is a bit simplistic, and Costume Quest is nice game to give to one of your kids or young relatives (though really any fit that mold).

Still doing ME3.

Random Fact: You can't get the Extended Endings if you use an old playthrough where you just imported an already saved and completed game in ME3 (pre-extended endings). You can do all of the other DLC, but not the extended endings.

I hate starting over, but ME3 is still pretty fun.

Has anyone got into the BioShock series? I've heard quite a bit about the games over the years, but never picked any of the games up. I'm keeping my eye out for some decent steam deals.

The first and third I've been heard to be called a "work of art" as far as video games go. I think that you'd appreciate them especially, Andy! They're dark/dystopian and very 1960's ish all at the same time. Here's a synopsis for you:

The game's concept was developed by Irrational's creative lead, Ken Levine, and was based on the ideas of Objectivism as highlighted by Ayn Rand, while incorporating influences from other authors such as George Orwell. The game is considered a spiritual successor to the System Shock series, which many of Irrational's team including Levine had worked on previously.[14][15]
BioShock is set in 1960, in which the player guides the protagonist, Jack, after his airplane crashes in the ocean near the bathysphere terminus that leads to the underwater city of Rapture. Built by the business magnate Andrew Ryan, the city was intended to be an isolated utopia, but the discovery of ADAM, a plasmid which grants superhuman powers, initiated the city's turbulent decline. Jack tries to find a way to escape, fighting through hordes of ADAM-obsessed enemies such as the deadly Big Daddies, while engaging with the few sane humans that remain and eventually learning of Rapture's past. The player, as Jack, is able to defeat foes in a number of ways by using weapons, utilizing plasmids that give unique powers and by turning Rapture's own defenses against them. BioShock includes elements of role-playing games, giving the player different approaches in engaging enemies such as by stealth, as well as moral choices of saving or killing characters.

There are two games I recall playing back in the day, but I can't recall for the life of a banana what they were named. One I have a better memory of, it was something like Rampage, but it wasn't Rampage I don't think. I just remember skyscrapers, lots of blue color, and maybe lots of yellow windows, and a gorilla I think.

Edit: Pretty sure this was the game: Gorillas (MS-DOS): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorillas_%28video_game%29

Image


The second one I have even less of a memory of, but I am pretty sure it was some sort of spaceship shooter, but not Asteroids, on a monochromatic monitor (I remember everything being green).

Older than Wing Commander?

I recall playing a game which needed about 8 or so of the 5" floppies. It took place in space, and you had to manually type out commands (e.g. examine Body). I recall there being aliens which were in the ship killing your people, so you had to avoid them.

I like it, and it is a decent game to dink around with. If you haven't already, I suggest downloading the Free DEMO from Steam and play it some to see if tantalizes you, and watch a youtube gameplay video. I did both, and they both helped me make my decision to get it.

I'd suggest seeing if you can get a deal on a digital download, of course. $40.00 on Steam is pretty steep, especially considering thy had a deal for like $8.00 a few months ago, plus the DLC on the cheap as well. Also, sometimes Amazon has a digital download discount sale too. If you aren't looking to get it right away, I'd setup a Google Alert for Crusader Kings 2 download sale or something like that, to get notified when a possible deal is available.

Re: Bioshock. The first is a lot of fun and worth the money. I'm sure it's really cheap by now. Good play and story. Have the second but haven't played it yet. Heard story wasn't as great bu gameplay was improved some.

As for earliest game memory, I remember getting a NES for xmas when I was around 3 and my dad hogging super mario bros 3. It's one my earliest memories.

Man this was a painto type out on an Android tablet.

A fun game for sure, I remember playing it as well. But I can remember playing mortal kombat before. My parents didn't allow me to play video games at that age and especially not mortal kombat because it was too violent (no kidding, that's one violent game lol), but my older brother was allowed to play it, so at least we had it. I sneaked in and played it when my parents wasn't around hehe. Ninja turtles was a favorite as well, but I think I was a little older when I played that. And then there was a game that I borrowed from a friend that I knew I wasn't allowed to play, but I hid it and only played it when my parents weren't around. I was a sneaky boy. Donkey kong country was a big favorite as well. But it was a bit too hard for me at that age.
