Don't ask Shipwreck's permission to correct his mispronunciations.  Just do it.

The NY Giants got in their new  foam fingers.

I definitely do not want Sony to automatically add free PS+ games to my account.  I don't "purchase" let alone download most of them because I'm not going to play most of them.  And I don't want my download list filled with games I have no interest in.

 

Bloodborne's the best game of this generation so far.

There is one type of game Shipwreck liked that isn't made anymore because there aren't enough other people who like it.

Yeah, I don't get it, either. I'm guessing people are referring to how the Shenmue Kickstarter didn't sit well with all of you. I'm noticing a lot of people in general are confused in how kickstarter works. The Castlevania successor, "Bloodstained", raised a few million on Kickstarter, but that's not the only revenue the game is receiving. So when I heard Shenmue was doing the same, I wasn't surprised or upset by the news. 

Nobody should be upset by it.  Shenmue fans are going to get to see the next part of the story, which is what they've wanted for more than a decade.  People who aren't Shenmue fans (like me) aren't affected.  There's nothing on Kickstarter which says only the money received there is allowed to be used for the production of a game.

 

What Sony are doing with Shenmue 3 is not much different to when Paradox came on as publisher for Pillars of Eternity, another game which made about $4m on KS.

Obsidian Entertainment, the developer of Fallout: New Vegas and South Park: The Stick of Truth, today announced that they are entering into a partnership with Paradox Interactive to launch their upcoming role-playing game (RPG), Pillars of Eternity.

 

Pillars of Eternity, an RPG inspired by classic titles such as Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment, was funded via Kickstarter in late 2012, raising $4.5 million through both backer pledges on Kickstarter and Obsidian’s own website. Feargus Urquhart, CEO of Obsidian Entertainment, stated that every dollar raised through the crowdfunding campaign will be spent solely on the game’s development.

 

“This game would not have happened if not for the passion and generosity of our backers, and their faith in us to create the game they wanted,” said Urquhart. “How we are developing Pillars of Eternity has not, and will not be, changed; we will deliver the game we promised to our backers, and we will deliver it this year. Having Paradox as a partner, with their expertise in independent games like Pillars of Eternity, lets us put all of our focus on making an incredible game.”

 

Paradox will assume key marketing and distribution responsibilities for the title, which will support Obsidian by allowing them to concentrate entirely on development.

Of course Shemue 3 won't be $60.  They're charging $30 for it right now, so they're not going to double the price.
