  1. Isn't the game coming out next year, anyway? They could announce the backer site in December and possibly still have things ready. You also have to consider the fact that Kickstarter itself only allows a single survey to be given out per project, in which case Obsidian has to be absolutely sure that those who donated that way get a survey they can rely on. If they send one out to me today, and I unexpectedly have to move next month, we're all screwed (except for the lucky sods what have moved into my home).
  2. Or perhaps you have to hunt down the new life the soul was supposed to replace and kill that instead? It would certainly not help a necromancer's reputation if his work involved killing off pregnant women or destroying entire families to be sure.
  3. I don't really see it as a problem- if someone wants to powergame their way through the game, more power to them, I say. It might be also be nice to go hog wild as some high-powered superhero your next game through. After all, there's nothing stopping you from simply starting up a new character, and a New Game+ shouldn't be too much of a strain on Obsidian, as well as affording additional player options.
  4. Have you checked with your bank yet? Some banks have a per-day purchase/transaction limit on their cards; it's what happened to me at any rate. That being said, I also donated via PayPal, because I want Obsidian to have more of my money. You go, guys!
  5. This is good to hear; I just hit my card's daily spending limit, and hearing that I can add-on in a few hours is heartening!
  6. Problem is, that could screw people like me, who find that their pledges aren't going through (seriously, I must've tried at least 6 times).
  7. $323; $250 tier, $30 shipping/handling, $25 black Obsidian shirt, $10 playing cards, $8 title. Or at least, that's how it'd be if my damn payment goes through, stupid Amazon. Why won't they take my freakin' money?!
  8. Righto! Looks like Amazon's loss is PayPal's (and Obsidian's) gain! EDIT: So just to be sure, this is the process I'll have to go through: 1) 'Donate own amount' option 2) Donate the $$$ I want to, with shipping, physical goods and tier level in the 'Special Instructions' box 3) ??? 4) Obsidian profits! Am I correct?
  9. Well, they were drunk Also, remember that KotOR 2 was released half a year ahead of the schedule Obsidian planned for thanks to Lucasarts wanting to get the holiday crowd, and they still came out with a diamond in the rough, so even if they stay true to the 18 month project, they're going to make something good again. Also bear in mind that South Park should be finishing soon; combining the money and manpower from that game with the resources from this Kickstarter, I think they can finish by 2014, if not by April, of course.
  10. Hey there, Amazon is being stupid and won't process my payment (I've tried at least 6 times!), so screw 'em. If I donate via PayPal, I can still include extra money for physical goods and shipping etc.? You guys will still send an email?
  11. Will those levels have drugs and hookers, though? This is important Seriously though, congrats!
  12. Seriously, if I could do this, I would. Unfortunately, all I have is the Internet...
  13. Where AP's PR went wrong was advertising it as a shooter, I think; it was an RPG with RPG mechanics, and the reactivity was top-notch. How many times have you played through it, and how different were the playthroughs? Professional Ninja Thorton is VERY different from Shotgun **** Thorton.
  14. True, but if push came to shove, I'd say plot. Skyrim, Oblivion etc. had an interesting setting, but I had more fun playing them on the tabletop (my DM just ported in D&D 4e) than I did in the games themselves. I just never felt 'involved' in anything.
  15. And it's entirely possible! See all those 50k plus backers? Just $6-10 more from each of them, and that it a reality! We can make this by today! Let's go!
  16. If I may, could I suggest an item or items that level with you? It would make a great way to personalize a piece of iconic equipment outside the crafting system. Other than that, all i want is for you guys to make what you already have much better by focusing more resources on them, but that's not very exciting, sorry EDIT: Oh, i have an idea! At $3 million, give us romances. At $5 million, promise Chris Avellone will not write them. You'll have a stronger economy than Europe in hours, I tell you.
  17. Well then, we'd have to agree that we each have those viewpoints, and to live and let live. Me, i love that feeling, that the old is about to be replaced by the new, that the world is about to change. Sure, we must spare some feelings for the world about to be left behind, but that is progress. As things change, so do our possibilities expand! And for the record, knights and so-called nobility, as well as the armies they raised in times of war, were as terrible people as any Landsknecht. At least those guys were honest about why they fought.
  18. Nay, I'd say make firearms prevalent and usable by all, just with some drawbacks (bows would, of course, have different drawbacks) commensurate with their effectiveness.
  19. Indications such as the presence of said firearms along with transoceanic colonies and expeditions seem to set this at the beginning or middle of the Age of Sail/Colonization, as opposed to the Dark Ages.
  20. I can definitely see it- story setting. Even a fantasy world can't stay swords-and-sorcery forever. The world is moving on, ancient traditions are being overturned. The old guard might not like it, but their opinion is irrelevant, the world MUST move on. Besides, there have been hints of Conquistador-like expeditions in the game, can't have Conquistadors without their muskets and morions, right? And again, guns were much simpler to use and train with than bows. Maybe there's a proficiency stat that rises fatser with guns than bows, but bows are ultimately more effective in the long run. Or something. EDIT: Besides, we already know of massive bombs being used in the game's past.
  21. OH MY GOD http://techland.time.com/2012/09/18/kickstarted-old-school-project-eternity-rpg-gets-funded-could-it-raise-10-million/
  22. I don't mean spending money on paid advertisements! Just a few more Meet the Maker videos, a few more pieces of concept art, that kind of thing. This Kickstarter only has 28 days to go, they should be going full-bore with the media blitz. And of course they shouldn't be so crass as to say 'gibe us ur cash moniez plz', but to show otherwise uninterested or on-the-fence people that this is something they should be interested in, something they would want to spend money on two years in advance!
  23. Just so you know, ropekid, I teared up a bit when the KS reached $1.6 million, and I might just take a day's leave from work if you ever break $3 million. You guys are doing a Good Thing for games in specific, and for interactive mediums as a whole. (Would have mentioned this on SA, but I was afraid I'd make some people withdraw their pledges).
  24. See the firearms thread for a longer discussion, but yeah, guns don't mean steampunk. Guns have been around for centuries, with gothic platemail coming AFTER guns. We're talking 16th Century wheelock rifles here.
