All the DOTA haters confuse me.

I would love to see more DOTA back on the site.

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?

Nope.

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.

Can I just point out that one of the stretch goals is for them to broadcast the international afterparty.

And their musical guest?


FUCKING DARUDE

I think the majority of this is due to people not fully understand what their kickstarter money was for.

When you give money to a kickstarter project, you are doing nothing more then being a nice person who wants to donate a few bucks to an idea in the hopes that idea will take off an be a real tangible thing one day.

While I do think it is shitty, and possibly unethical, for someone to take a kickstarter idea and sell it off to a huge company for millions/billions of dollars... it is entirely within their right to do it, and they owe you absolutely nothing for it.

This kind of stuff is exactly the reason why I have not/will not ever give any money to anything on kickstarter. I don't like the idea of giving money for something that I might never get anything in return for.

BUT, if you are the kind of person who does give people money on kickstarter, and you seriously never expected that something like this would happen. You are delusional and naive.

Every time I have ever been invaded it is by someone who is significantly higher level then me soul and gear wise, and I never win.

At this point I just assume it means death, which is why I try to play most of the game as hollow.

Works just fine for me with DSFix.

When you say you tried removing GFWL what exactly do you mean?
