Who got duped into giving these guys more money to put out a revised Ouya?

I hope the WiiU finds better support. It seems to me right now that the WiiU is just a black hole for Nintendo that just sucks up more money than the 3DS can print out. Problem is they can't just drop support for that thing, and the software they are putting out, though pretty good, isn't enough to move millions of units. It puts them in a weird situation in terms of what to do about it. I guess looking into smart device development might help them feed that black hole some more.
Revelations seemed kind dull in comparison to its predecessors. Also I skipped reading most everything except "Worst AC game?" and interpreted that as "Worst Armored Core game?". In that case, everything after Master of Arena.
@hatking: I am certain that there is another person working on Mighty No. 9 that has not played a Mega Man game in his or her life or familiar with the franchise prior to taking a job at the Comcept. While being a fan of the product or similar products shows the employer a future passion for the job, it (usually) is not the sole determinant in getting a job. Determinants may include having the core skills necessary, experience, and being able to successfully apply them similar environments. I bet that woman went through a hiring process like everybody else and got picked because she seems like the most competent person for the given job, and not solely because she knew somebody at the company. The backers angry at this situation are being petty and some are leveraging the situation for sexist agendas.
In short, you usually do not have to be familiar with similar products or brands to get a job and Kickstarter backers are making mountains out of molehills while possibly being sexist.
What good is double XP and a free gun part if I can't even stay in a game to use either?
I have no disagreement with PayPal's practices regarding "locking accounts down" in the interest of potential fraud. PayPal, as a transaction processing business, ends up flipping the bill if things go south and the seller commits fraud or does not produce the product as stated. "Locking down accounts" helps to mitigate the risk PayPal would potentially incur as the result of fraud.
What I do have a problem with is PayPal's practices concerning freezing the accounts of sellers with legitimate causes. Yeah, okay-- I can see PayPal needing additional documentation concerning the product to instill confidence that the seller is legitimate.The part of it that breaks bad for me is what happens afterwards. If the seller "checks out", why not give the party the money at that point? Shit, if PayPal has decided that the seller has provided sufficient information to prove their legitimacy, then why leave the account frozen? I don't think the reason of the final product not meeting expectations would is a viable reason in this scenario; the seller, in this case the developer, already has a deep obligation to the buyers to produce a quality product, and if the developers are legitimate, they will more than likely make damn sure that the end result satisfies the project backers. If developers can prove satisfactorily prove their legitimacy to PayPal, then the developer's account should not be frozen.
Does the merc still have the spin move? I'm still in the training grounds, but I noticed that wasn't there anymore.
Mercs lack both the spin and the charge in this game. They can sprint and melee though.
I started with Monster Hunter Freedom for the PSP about five or so years ago without a mentor. Trying to understand the mechanics of the game yourself without a mentor is an exercise in frustration but doable. Hell, I even eventually managed to bag a Yian Kut-Ku with a hammer as my first large monster after being destroyed by it like three times. After bagging that Kut-Ku, I realized what the game was all about and was hooked.
Now here I am with Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for the 3DS, just hot off repelling a Jhen Mohran by myself with a gunlance (valiant lance users unite!) and still loving the game as much as I did bagging that stupid bird with an oversized home improvement tool all those years ago.
