Has anybody heard about the drama with AVGN and some sort of scandal involving a kickstarter project involving Cheetahmen 2?
Cheetahmen 2 Kickstarter Drama
Looked up some info about this since you didn't link anything at all. None of this is James' fault. He just did the promo and thought it would be something fun to do.
The video in his post:
Didn't know about it but I don't see what the big deal is. The terrible developers of a terrible game reviewed by AVGN is being "remastered" on it's original platform.
The only interesting thing about this is whether or not this would hold any value to collector's or whether the actual collectors would be the only ones to buy it. *shrug*
He should of done research on the project before attaching his brand to it but people seriously overreacted to this whole thing. The internet (specifically the gaming community) tends to overreact to just about anything. It's like people are so desperate for scandals and drama that they'll blow anything out of proportion.
Here's the thing...Kickstarter projects can be kind of shady. People have noticed the success that certain projects have gotten and see an opportunity to make a profit. That only becomes an issue when they want to make a profit off of selling garbage. People just have to be better judges of who wants to sell you a genuine quality product and whose looking to rip you off. Either way, people took their aggression out on James for no good reason. Sometimes I think the internet needs to find a happier medium when they aren't happy about something.
