@extomar: What does "pay" mean? He is paying by his games coming out and failing to live up to expectations. This level of righteousness some people have towards him I fail to understand. He actually doesn't have a pay at all. Just don't buy his game.

Some righteous, vengeful, petty gamers out there. If they all hate Molyneux and think that he doesn't have talent, why do they care so much about him? If he's bad at making games, why give him money BEFORE he has even made any of a game? And then be surprised? I don't get it.

Pay in reputation. Pay in status. Pay in whatever. If nothing else, one can not run a contest promising prizes then just drop it and expect people to not squawk about it especially the prize winners. Molyneux owns them something and I support them collecting something even if it is little as a t-shirt that say "Molyneux breaks promises" they make themselves.

Dude what are you talking about? The guy is getting attacked by journalists and people have been questioning him for years. That's your "payment". Your vengeance is petty and sad. I hope you really don't walk around demanding "payment" from people for what you think they did.

*shrug* You asked the silly question and I am only providing an answer. And you must misread something if you think that answer is "vengeance" of anything. Why are you on a high horse defending Molyneux?

Molyneux made grandiose promises and failed in multiple ways. I'm for people making fun of the situation. If you think that is cruel or vengeance then you live in a very dreary world because I think people wandering around E3 with "Molyneux breaks promises" t-shirts would make me smile.

To be clear, I do not think Molyneux is bad or a con-man but at some stage one has to "pay" for making statements and promises and then failing to do. I love what he tries and dream up but he has little, weak, or no design skills and that is a problem if anyone thinks about producing a game with him.

Why on earth are some of you people outraged? Have you been that gullible and spoonfed your whole lives that you expect every "promise" someone makes you to be fulfilled? Unless Molyneux has literally pissed in your cornflakes (or didn't, depending on the kickstarter backer level), it's clear he and a bunch of other people have made a series of bad decisions. It happens.

Hell, at least Molyneux tries and occasionally fails spectacularly.

I don't think anyone really cares about the game or whatever but they do take note that he has made mistakes but seems to be dismissive and deflective. That means at best he is not humble and fails to recognize his limitations or at worst a pretentious and perpetual liar that finds blame in other sources but fails to find it in himself. That combination is easy fodder for the interwebs.

...this thread should be locked. As much as I dislike "I like cake" threads, I really think "I hate cake" threads as worthless.

I only claim "The Daily Show" writers made so many jokes about conservatives because they make themselves easier targets than liberals. In particular, what I have always appreciated about "The Daily Show" is that they avoid cheating their comedy where it would be easy to manipulate to show how absurd or ridiculous the stance or topic happened to be where instead they just let the material show it for itself. The recent "critique" of the whole Brian Williams thing is a prime example where all they have to do is show how duplicitous the news media happens to be with "fibs".

I've never seen "The Daily Show" as "liberal left leaning" especially when that show would regularly chew out the Obama Administration for lacking backbone for many non-partisan issues.

On the other hand, time and time again one party seems to carry a lot of pretension and puts on "airs of moral righteousness" more than the other and that is easy to make fun on. When you look at a topic like "same sex marriage" and one side goes "I'm for it as civil rights thing," while the other side goes "It is an ungodly abomination that shows more proof that Washington DC is turning into Sodum and Gamora with all of its lust and greed and sinfulness!" the joke becomes easy: "You know congressman, you live and work there for 20 years to help make it like that!"

I feel that the wiki at sites like this have to be generalized so some one who has no idea about a game can read and understand it. If someone went to the Dark Souls page updated with a big diseration on what the multiple theories on why a character makes mention of something specific, I would be "meh" about it the update.

I say clean up the page but you may want to avoid going into details on "this is how this drafting works".

That is excellent! Is it possible to increase the size of that?

I've been casually goofing off in Heroes of the Storm.
