If you decline the option, they don't vanish. They're always there--taunting.

That's how I felt about the DLC salesman in my camp in Dragon Age 1.

LoL and DOTA2 are at the top - is there anything that could be considered 'third place' or are all these games just fighting over scraps and doomed to die?

The latter. We'll see where Blizzard's project ends up though. People care about their name...

Is Patrick just 75% of Giant Bomb for people who don't bite on the premium bait? I feel like GB does a lot of what they hate about the DLC culture in games these days...

I wonder how much it hurts the potential that DFA isn't out yet.

I wouldn't expect much as they say that it's two different teams. So no talent or man power is being changed.

Oh I didn't mean the game, but the Kickstarter itself. I was wondering about doubt and backlash.

Doesn't seem to be an issue though. It is already 340k in.

Can't help noticing that the finance people are in this one. They must really like the idea of free money and full price preorders :)

I was more offended by how broken a co-op experience Guacamelee is. To protect your sanity one player has to bubble up and let the other do all the world-switching platforming puzzles solo.

the kickstarter page seemed to imply that ron gilbert would have a fundamental role in the creation of the game, but with this news, and the news that he's only been consulting on the game in the background, i feel kind of mislead. but maybe i just read the kickstarter wrong. anybody else feel similar?

I think you read/watched or remember it very wrong.

If you're a backer, haven't you been following the documentary? Gilbert has had no visible part in the production after it actually started. He has been busy with the cave.

-should we be reviewing them before they launch?

If they're subject to complicated online DRM like this, or heavily focused on multiplayer on a scale it isn't possible to achieve before launch, then hell no. You're reviewing a different product.

Since the Infinity Blade franchise have been very successful so far, what makes anyone think this means anything other than that these guys were making a product of too low quality to fit in?
