I found the original Civ5 lacking compared to Civ4. But when G&K came out, things changed a fair bit, it added the much needed depth to the original game, and I really enjoyed playing it. With BNW, I think it'll get even better. Can't wait.
These high profile games will make or break the kickstarter model, I'm definitely intrigued to see what'll happen. FTL proved it can work for indies, but can it work for larger teams? Guess we'll wait and see.
I can live with a bit of a cliched storyline, as long as they deliver a good game.
Guess I'm going to chime in. I seem to be the only one here, who wasn't impressed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't great either. It was OK at best. Didn't read the book (Read two LOTR books), never was a huge fan.
I felt like in the 3 hours that I spent in the theater, nothing of substance...
Apparently someone donated 800$ in the last second, so even the developer couldn't chip in. (Apparently his wife was watching the countdown or something).
One theory is, that apparently someone knew it wouldn't be funded so they pitched in to prove a point.
Seriously, someone slap the OP for creating a retarded poll. I for one think rape, as ALL things, is acceptable to joke about.
I mean, at that point, we might as well stop all the dead baby jokes too. And cancer jokes... and nazi jokes.
And yet another invasion of privacy in the name of protecting the children. I guess hoping that parents would teach kids about... let's say... how meeting up with creepy old people is a bad idea is too much to ask in this world.
I'll just wait for the usual reaction on the escapist along the lines: "He deserved it. Everyone knows that terrorism scares are taken seriously these days."
But yeah, it's bullshit. I still have no idea why anyone takes anything on the internet seriously.
