I remembering preordering XCOM Enemy Unknown and getting some ingame clothes,an art book, and a Xcom badge to sow into my clothes (I have never used it but it was still neat).

I presume you are an Aliens fan if you buy the game, so some fan servicey dlc is fine (to me at least). Anyway, this game sounds like it plays well and reviews should hit a few days before release and you can decide to keep your preorder or cancel it when the time comes.

I would honestly like to see more interesting pre order bonuses for games like this one that can be stand alone. I understand that some people hate preprder dlcs but to chastise people who buy them goes a bit too far to me, let them spend their money as they wish.

I'm sad that the response to how massive the 150k is for just something that is on the level of DLC. But even if it is just 10 people, 150k would be below minimum wage for a year if the money is just for wages. It is easy to criticize "evil" publishers but looking at numbers like that, I am not surprised that many do the things that they do.

Also why should the consumers care? If we just see a DLC for Skullgirls that is $5 for a character many would scream that it is greed but that is just a simple answer we all go to when we refuse to accept the extreme complexity of business and the industry.

It is sad that many people are reacting that way but we can't change that.

Yet they continue to vote for sports...

I voted for MMO as I have absolutely no interest in the type of gameplay they wrap the social experience in.

That was actually very interesting considering that in the first poll had MMOs winning by a very large margin.

There is a game called Unwritten on Kickstarter that seems interesting.
