@antime: this would NOT have gotten made if they didn't demonstrate the public's desire for it, and what better way than a kickstarter campaign? I think it serves its purpose nicely here and in this case really isn't deserving of your ire.

They could have done it as a regular pre-order campaign or ran ads or whatever, since the Kickstarter money was clearly irrelevant. This is not what crowdfunding is for. It will also only further skew people's view on what a game actually costs to make.

I hope their other investors will put in a lot of money because 500K is a very low goal.

According to a Q&A on Gamasutra, he got 90% funding on the condition he proves there's interest in the game, so the original budget would have been $5mil. As much as I'd like to see the game, that's just more shitty abuse of what Kickstarter was supposed to be.

I'm not saying mod creators shouldn't get paid for their work, they should.

Many mods employ Voice Actors, does that set a precedent for paying them?

Make up your mind.

Whatever happened to Chris Waters?

They thought he was just the work experience kid.

Anyone remember the hoopla around the time of the launch of the 3DS about how doctors warned against possible ill effects for very young children? That's obviously who the new model is designed for. The lack of a hinge helps durability, and you wouldn't let kids that small take something that expensive to the park, so portability is not that big of a deal. The repositioned controls make the device less top-heavy, which is also easier for weaker hands.

Don't rage about the design, it's not for you anyway.

Using Chrome on OS X, I get no sound in some videos when using the HTML5 player. For example the latest ILM (http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/i-love-mondays-06-24-2013/2300-7633/) plays without sound, while the Deadpool QL (http://www.giantbomb.com/videos/quick-look-deadpool/2300-7634/) works fine.
