good news for all DRM haters out there.


The words freedom and liberty, are diminishing the true meaning of the abstract concept they try to explain. The true nature of freedom is such, that the human mind is unable to comprehend it, so we make a cage and name it freedom in order to give a tangible meaning to what we dont understand, just as our ancestors made gods like Thor or Zeus to explain thunder.

What? You thought it was a quote from some well known wise guy from the past?

 

Stupidity leads to willful ignorance - willful ignorance leads to hope - hope leads to sex - and that is how a new generation of fools is born!


We are hardcore role players... When we go to bed with a girl, we roll a D20 to see if we hit the target and a D6 to see how much penetration damage we did.

Also $140.00 CE gets you beta access. Evil Obz have just got me there, and am upping my pledge accordingly.

This and the Beta access just made me up my pledge. Very good news indeed.

That this was ever a question is baffeling.

 

Like, the majority of past gaming kickstarters started with a unclear DRM situation till they got confirmation from some other service than steam and then had DRM free options.

Great news. GOG.com has a very strong following of classic RPG fans, so I think Obsidian definitely made the right call.

Getting Beta access makes me jump around with glee.

Maybe it was an insidious marketing scheme. Good news make people happy, happy people pay more. :dancing:

Kudos to Obsidian both for bettering their Kickstarter offer *and* for bettering their Kickstarter communication. They have the campaign on the right track. :)

Hmmm I must continue my analysis of Kickstarter spikes as this excellent news percolates through the gamersphere.

Man, decisions... decisions. I <3 steam and get p. much all my PC games from there but the benefits of the GOG version (such as not being forced to play on the current version) have a lot of merits as well.

GOG >>>>>>> Steam. No contest.

If you ask me, Steam is an outdated client, a relic of the past, in which screwing over paying customers was a norm.

Feel free to continue using Steam of course, but I won't be supporting Gaben's walled DRM garden anymore now that there's a viable alternative. I will support pro-consumer solutions like GOG.

 

Thank you Obsidian & GOG!

Sorry for being OT guys, but just wanted to say... that's a little steep ;(

We already have a long thread on this already, I don't see the necessity to ignite another discussion elsewhere.

Why would you guys want beta access for a game like this anyway? Hurray I get to play the game in a bug filled state and spoil myself on all the story aspects before release!

Grandiose statements, cryptic warnings, blind fanboyisim and an opinion that leaves no room for argument and will never be dissuaded. Welcome to the forums, you'll go far in this place my boy, you'll go far!

I will probably replay the game 800 times anyway. :p

That's what I said. But I figure this will be a more popular title so raising the beta access required amount limits the field a bit (and it makes them more money ...)

 

But yes I do miss ~35-50 beta access

2014 is a long time. Who knows if I'll still be alive. :wacko:

 

This is the first time (well, Wasteland 2 is for me) that many of us are paying for a game that's more than a year away. So I think beta will serve as a stop gap I guess.
