>>
>>285675565

Spacebase DF-9 was kind of a scam since they took an unfinished project and said "This is costing too much money so we're just gonna call it done and not put in everything we promised in the Kickstarter pitch."

I say kind of a scam because I'm sure they had every intention of delivering but economic realities made it impossible. They're incompetent, not malicious.

He isn't saying they don't exist, just that they're sock puppets. How is that racist?

>>285676084
>I'm sure they had every intention of delivering but economic realities made it impossible.
That's bullshit.
This thing was on early access, so they would've have gotten funding as they developed the game more and more.


That being said, schaefer seems REALLY desperate to please someone. Maybe he found himself a progressive young sanfrancisco girlfriend who expects him to do this kind of pathetic stuff in order to get pussy?

Tim Schafer's really incredible imo. He made one good game. Then proceeded to be one of the most inefficient directors out there. Gets booted out of the mainstream and has to resort to crowdfunding. He has one good game, and people know that, they've developed a small following around him and are willing to spend money because he's done good work once or twice before. What does he do? He continues to be an inefficient piece of shit and then gloats about.

Cave Story was made by one fucking guy, without a budget and its better than the sum of every game Tim Schafer has ever made put together. What the fuck does that tell you?

I don't like the way it works.

Remember that one game you heard early talks of that you got excited for, waited 5 years just to see the release trailer, got even more fucking exited, waited another 2 or 3 years for it to finally come out and it was a complete and total letdown?

Imagine if you paid for it at the beginning of that 7 year hype cycle.

Games take ages. You put money in early because you're excited, but unless the kickstarter really engages its supporters then you're just left with the sentiment "thanks for your money come back in a few years to see the final product" and the hype just sort of dies by the time the game's out.

Only good aspect is not having to worry about publishers, but that can become a bad aspect if the devs take advantage of the fact too much. Even ignoring the chance of it never coming out, the devs taking your money and running, or the issues you should have as a consumer for paying for something that's in the early stages of existing, I don't like it.

OH GOD YOU GUYS

Tim Schafer worked at Lucasfilm Games. During his application process for the job, he had a somewhat disastrous phone interview in which he mentioned being a fan of Ballblaster. The interviewer, David Fox, informed him that the Lucasfilm Games title was Ballblazer, and that only the pirated version was known as Ballblaster. Schafer was still permitted to send in his resume and a cover letter, so to make up for the phone interview, he sent in a comic of himself applying for and getting the job at Lucasfilm Games, drawn as a text adventure.

I've noticed the opposite. The fucks are in complete denial. Mention Anita "Gamergate isn't about Anita". Same with Zoe.

But the truth is, they ARE involved and they are an issue that needs to be tackled. You don't just let mindless rapid dogs roam unchecked. Sadly GamerGate has lost its balls as of late. They're too busy trying to be politically correct just like their opposition. In the process they're holding back trying to look far more civil than they should be.

Not your shield is basically a part of gamergate that shows that minorities and women support their movement to argue against their enemies belief that gamergate consists solely of white virgin neckbeard nerds and that they're misogynistic and racist by default.

For the past half year they've managed to make sjws look like absolutely batshit insane cultists, while most people themselves don't support gg they also have a raging hate for social justice wich is just as good.
Even a number of devs have decided to step out of their comfort zone and speak up, you need to be better informed.

The joke is convoluted and even after an explanation is not funny.
#notyourshield is a hashtag that GG created after accusations of all being "white neckbeards" it was used by minorities in the GG sphere.
The "joke" is that armor=shield and the minorities are all sockpuppets(aka not real) of 3 guys.

>>285678929
The fact that the Law and Order SVU episode exists makes it all worthwhile.

#notyourshield was a complementary hashtag for #gamergate, in wich minorities such as niggers, grills, jews, muslims or whatever tweeted with pictures of themselves to prove the SJW the gaming bois aren't all white cis males

SJW's just said "lol, fake accounts (sockpuppets)" and dismissed all of them

The dumb thing is that gamergate wouldn't have blown up if they just gave a token assurance that they would enforce a better ethical standard for their reporting. Not even an apology or sackings or anything.

Their refusal to acknowledge there might be a problem with the cliquish behaviour of the san francisco press and certain segment of indie developers just brought more attention to it.

The Double Fine Phil Fish party was in absolute bad taste, and Shafer should have lost any good will he had left for that.

People hated Phil, he cancelled a game that got like 3 times its budget without releasing it, and he threw a big, public party for his insider friends. I'm sure if you asked him he wouldn't "get" why that's bad, but that's part of the problem. It shows how out-of-touch he is.

The sock puppet thing shows how bitter and persecuted he feels, but he brought this on himself. This is indicative of how clueless and insulated big game devs really are in their little club out in CA.

As much as I don't give a shit about Schafer or his crappy games, nor do I understand his stupid joke, what I do appreciate is that he ostensibly shit all over women and minorities, which they utterly deserve.

Christ, 99.99 percent of all games were made by either a white or Asian male, what goddamned right do women or brownies have to bitch about the state of the industry, especially when they would have to have liked the industry the way it was at some point to like video games at all in the first place?

It's always bothered me that tumblr-social justice is basically first world problems epitomized. Like there are literally countries where gays get lynched on the regular for being gay and women get gang raped or acid thrown in their face for going to school.

Furthermore, and I haven't read the thread, but I guarantee there's a bunch of people beating their chests over "da evil goobers," but realize that you aren't defending some precious princess from vile misogynists. You're defending an insular, money-bloated culture of excess from their consumers.
