  1. Hi all. So I noticed that while managing my rewards, I have the option to select a higher tier, as well as some additional add ons before confirming it (any pay the extra cost of course) I'd like to know, if I just set my reward to the original tier I paid for right now, will I have the option of upgrading or add ons later? And if not, how long I can hold off confirming my reward? (so I can wait till I have some money to upgrade, lol) Thanks
  2. Exactly A video game still has to focus on being a video game at the end of the day. QFFT
  3. Such comparison doesn't have a common ground for it to be valid. that very same old man would have been beaten by his 30 year old self. Its a biological fact that physically, our body peak at about 25-30. After that its a decline. There's a reason why most sportsmen peak at that age range. Certain demanding sports is where you really see the effect of a person's physical capabilities and its very rare you see a sportsmen above 40 doing well in physical sports like Formula 1 or football. Of course, with everything said, we should always remember that video game is not a simulator of real life. A video game needs to be a video game at the end of the day. Said game did not implement such feature because its trying to simulate real life. Its something that's added as additional challenge to the game mechanics.
  4. Thank you for the fulfillment site. I believe its the best way of handling the pledges and rewards, better than through email. And I love the ability to upgrade our pledge, which I hope will be there for awhile. I certainly am aiming for higher tier once I can afford. Thank you all. PS: Congratulations to Darren Monahan for his first kid.
  5. Completely ok. They will later contact you and everyone to ask how we want to divide the total amount of money we donated, and that's where you tell them this money for what tier, and that money for shipping, etc.
  6. Mathematics is not a belief system. It doesn't require you to have faith in it. When you do your taxes you are using mathematics. You can't say you don't believe in mathematics and so you are not paying your taxes. When you drive you car, it was design using mathematics. When you use your computer, its mathematics. When you use your GPS, its mathematics. Its a tool of pattern. Science is another fact that you cannot avoid regardless of whether you are religious or not. When you are ill, you don't stay home and pray to god, you go to the hospital, that's science at work. When you want to go somewhere far, you don't pray to god to take you there, you get on an airplane, that's science at work. So, I don't understand how religious people could have anything against science, its a part of nature that you cannot avoid. The very computer you are using to visit this forum is science at work. If you religious people want to blame something for others not believing in your religion or your belief system, you need to look elsewhere. Perhaps even look at your own religion and ask, why are people leaving this belief system. Science is merely a systematical way of laying out the facts that describe the working of nature. If you are pissed off at why evolution was responsible for life and not god, go blame nature. Science merely tells us how nature works. The whole science vs religion thing is just silly.
  7. From what I've seen in other kickstarter, they will usually announce it to make sure everyone is aware that they are closing the Paypal donation, for example a few days before they close it down. Personally I hope it stays up for a longer time though, I'm still trying to squeeze in some extra money to upgrade my tier. Or at least get the strategy guide, Heh
  8. I see some people mentioned about ensuring the game would stand the test of time, which is a great point. Games like Baldur's Gate shows us that if its great, people will still want to play it many years later. Only problem is that it didn't scale well with certain technology such as the text are hard to read with today's display standard.
  9. Just because there are certain thing we don't know about the universe, it doesn't mean there's a need for a higher being or intelligent design. To invoke intelligent design is merely an argument from ignorance. I don't know what it is, so it must be so and so. It makes no sense. If you don't know then you don't, the discussion ends there. In science, we follow what nature tells is. We work from what we know, and we push the boundaries into the unknown as we progress. And until we get there, we do not have any preconception of what is there. We do not guess, we do not invoke intelligent design to fill our ignorance of what we've yet to understand. Invoking intelligent design stops progress. Issac Newton invoke god when he couldn't explain why the presence of several planets doesn't result in a disorientation of the solar system. He, the person who single handedly came up with calculus to explain the elliptical orbits decided that intelligent design is required when he could have answered the question himself had he continue to push forward. He could have came up with perturbation theory which was just an extension of calculus but unfortunately he did not. It was left to someone else who could see that there has to be a logical explanation to it rather than requiring intelligent design to came up with perturbation theory and solve the problem.
  10. I think its referring to the pen and paper D&D where you do need to read the rule book and learn them before you can play the game at all. In cRPG, the rules are handled by the computer, you just need to play the game, the computer will handle the mechanics.
  11. Max Payne 3 is about 30GB if I'm not mistaken. Not that I know if its the biggest ever, but I don't recall it ever being a issue. Didn't come across anyone complaining about it. Most probably it can be easily changed in one of its parameter files. They have said they plan to make stuff editable by simple text edits for modding. So, everyone can have it the way they want it. I hope it doesn't bothers you though.
  12. Its funny I was browsing this other Kickstarter project Star Citizen which I think many may have heard of by now, and they actually made "monthly dev team webcast" as a stretch goal. I thought to my self, so if no 4 million you're not going to be as enthusiastic in keeping the supporters up to date? I'm so glad Obsidian is keeping us up to date with these video after the project finishes and the real work begin. Looking forward to next week's update.
  13. Right now, I'm playing both Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2. I am actually working through my Steam backlog too, HL Episode 1 and 2, and just installed Portal 2. But for this week, I'm focused more on Guild Wars 2 for its Halloween event. Terraria is also another game I'm playing during evening when I'm free, before dinner time. Where I live here, its way too hot to play any 3D games in the evening with the PC pumping out severe amount of heat into my already hot room. But I actually enjoy Terraria though.
