Are the rich old men ruining Kickstarter?

BabyJesus

People - ask yourself why the reward tiers never include equity in the company or profit sharing.

"There is no such thing as a free lunch" - There is now.

Kickstarter rubs me the wrong way. It socialises the risks and privatises the profits. That's not how its supposed to work, if you take onboard risks (no matter how small) you deserve to share in profits.

It's free money, imagine if something like angry birds had been kickstarted - you'd of had a hand in making a handful of people very rich whilst your reward is a tshirt and a mug.

Businesses are not charities.

Hey I wish we lived in a socialist paradise but we don't.

@Lightguy He was a product of his time and upbringing - not an excuse. But moral relativism is weird like that. We've got to remember for the majority of his time on earth those views were the moral majority.

Churchill was a bastard(colonies policy etc) but he lifted the nation and helped win the war. You can admire a mans achievements without believing everything they do with absolution.

Yay more chance to socialise the risks & privatize the profits. At this point why would anyone get actual investors when they can get funding for zero equity loss.

Its absurd to me, but each to their own.

Resident Evil 6 review

BabyJesus

6 years ago

Not unexpected but nonetheless disappointing.

I truly want 'my' resi evil(1-3, 4 is great but it's not what I want from resident evil) back more than any other franchise.

I still remember playing RE2 in my young teens, the only experience in gaming that has come close to the sheer enjoyment I had is the Fallouts.

Wii U price round-up: where's cheapest?

BabyJesus

6 years ago

"Hmm Economys tanking in all our major markets, how should we launch our new console?"

"Well we launched the Wii cheap when the economy was booming, therefore reverse gaming company logic(tm) dictates we make it more expensive when it is tanking!"

"Genius, I can for-see no problems with this strategy!"

^Can easily be applied to pretty much any publisher, console maker etc. The basic flawed idea of 'People have less money, therefore attacked their wallets more' is increasingly prevalent right now.

Counter-Strike: GO misses PlayStation Store for fourth week

BabyJesus

6 years ago

I'm still amazed that Sony has their online infrastructure segmented with Sony Europe and Sony America(Makes sense sort of for retail distribution, online not really).

If something is approved in yankland with microsoft, you can bet it will also be there day and date on the European marketplace, same with Steam. It's so arse backwards having two organisations within the same company doing the exact same thing.

You'd think a Japanese company would be familiar with 'lean management', apparently not.

It's sad that this is such a notable thing, more British companies should be investing in britain. Sadly profit margins & weak labour laws usually win out over trying to improve our nation & repaying society for the business opportunity we provide.

Would buy it if it was out during the summer drought, but early sept is usually when big hitters start getting released.

So unless it is exceedingly good and doesn't have the most organised group of rebels in history (How can they replace a whole team of people in less than 2 minutes?) I'll be waiting for a price drop.
