I would definitely love a key.

First of all, go mechanical, you will not regret it.
Secondly, figure out what switches you want in your keyboard, look up the different types of switches, see what the differences are, find the colour that suits you.
Lastly, go on Newegg, Amazon, wherever, look up reviews for keyboards in the price range you are looking at with the switches you want in them.
There really is no universal "best" keyboard for gaming, keyboards are incredibly personal, and you need to find the one that suits you.
Man, it sure is "cool" to hate Metallica.
I am not going to sit here and pretend their more recent albums are good, but they essentially created thrash metal, and all their albums up to and including Justice are classics.
Everything after that though? Who cares.
Well obviously gameplay is always more important than graphics.
That said, I value graphics very highly. An average game with phenomenal graphics is always going to appeal more to me than an average game with mediocre graphics.
I harbour no ill will towards the man who started the kickstarter.
Should it be making any money?
But hey, if people want to throw their money away at something as dumb as this, that is their prerogative.
People can and will spend their money in whatever dumb way they please. You all may as well get used to it.
@thatpinguino: When it comes to grinding/leveling, I enjoy being able to shut off my brain sometimes and just grind for levels/money. I am sure that won't make sense to some people, but I find it relaxing, and even fun. Of course I am also a big fan of MMO's, so maybe my brain is hardwired to find "boring"/repetitive tasks strangely soothing.
Also I don't personally consider the junction system to be a real "skill barrier" of any kind. It is easily manipulated as long as you are willing to learn how to do it yourself, or read a guide that tells you how to do it. It's not really skill so much as it is the ability to manipulate the game.
Now I am not trying to defend leveling/grinding as skill based, because obviously they are not, but the core design of FF8 simply does not appeal to me in any way. I really dislike RPG's that try to remove the leveling/grinding aspects to them. I also tend to enjoy turn based games more than non turned based ones (although this doesn't apply to FF8).
I guess I was just raised playing old school JRPG's, and I am not really fond of ones that try to switch up the formula. Turn based grinding JRPG's are like comfort food for me.
But as I said, to each their own.
Ugh the junction system.
I respect that people really like FF8, but I absolutely hate it.
An RPG that removes any incentive to level is wrong to me on a fundamental level, but I say that as someone who enjoys grinding.
To each their own I suppose.
