Yeah, I'm checking in. I don't have any stuff here (maybe I'll go and buy some beer) and I hope the update goes online early, rather than later. I have to be at a journalistics lecture in the morning and I can't skip because our class is kind of small and I already skipped last time. 

 

I hope for a complete package, but honestly, what I hope the most is that we didn't get our expectations too high. That has happened too many times and sometimes I get kind of bigger and PE's probably the first title in years which really hyped me. 

 

I also expect them to drop the Pillars title because, honestly, it would've been reaaaaally anticlimactic if they spoiled a long-awaited name via a screenshot. Also it would've been really dumb if accidental. And I, for one, think that Obsidian is full of smart people that would love to use the leverage they've got now to drop a bomb on us. Maybe they even give us the cover art! :)

 

If there's a video I hope it to be a bit similar from the Wasteland/Shadowrun videos. I'd rather have a 10 minute trailer filled with various stuff instead of 30 minutes of anticlimactic explanation of small details and just one level. But this is unrealistic I think. I wouldn't be mad anyways, because we've got a video. 

 

At the moment, it's 18.43 here. Still a long way to go.

Oh! For some reason, I marked it for next week in my calendar. Hm! 

 

Honestly, I don't care much about the backer site, I'm waiting for the gameplay video. Hopefully it's a longer one and not just a trailer.

Well, since I have to write an essay on anarchy in IR theory, I too will probably end up camping late for it. Guess that's something good to come out of this essay at least...

Ghost stories?  Alright, I'll give it a crack.

 

I stood stock still in the doorway.  Something was certainly wrong - no tv hum, not the tick of a clock, the cat didn't greet my return with a rub of the feet like usual, and in the dim light I could see the silhouette of my wife at the end of the hall.  Why are the lights out?  I should have left then, I should have called out, but I had a routine to follow and no inclination of letting irrational fears make a fool of me.  But make a fool of me they did, for I was drawn into the preternatural silence and made not a peep to anounce my presence.  She still stood at the end of the hall with nary a movement, and with my eyes adjusting I could see that she faced away from me.  This was getting all to surreal, and finally I had to break the atmosphere.  I set my coat on the hanger, and dropped my keys with what might have been a crashing thunder - but the woman in the hall didn't so much as twitch.  Ok, you may have noticed that I'm not so certain that this is my wife at this point.  I tell myself everything's alright, that she's making an ass of me, and goddamnit it's working.  I'm not foolhardy though, and I approach with all of the stealth I can manage given my heart pounding in my ears.

I'm just behind her now, and as I reach for her shoulder, the statue turns its countenance slightly my way.

 

"Hello honey.  I'm glad you're home."  She sounds somber, flat, but her voice washes over me like a cool wind.

 

"Cathy!  You had me worried for a minute.  Is something wrong?  Why are you standing in the dark?"  Her head turns further.  No, something is definitely wrong.

 

"Hey honey, can I ask you something?"  This isn't my wife.  This isn't my wife.  Her neck is turned far, and if my imagination isn't tricking me, too far.  The grin on her face is cruel and malign.  I must get out of here.  I can't hear any more!

 

"You!"  My voice wavers.  "Who are you?  What do you want?"

Why did I have to ask?  Run damnit!

 

"Do you mind,"  No!  "Do you mind terribly,"  Enough! Stop! "If my parents stay for the Thanksgiving?"

 

 

My legs found themselves.  I ran from that place.  From that building.  From that life.  I have no love, no family - just a poor bachelor celebrating Thanksgiving at Denny's.

"...along with some new Justin Bell music."

 

And by Justin Bell music I assume you mean Justin Bieber music.

 

All else would be a farce.

I was a varsity tackle and a hell of a block
And when I played my guitar I made the canyons rock
But every Tuesday night
I felt the fever grow
All revved up with no place to go

Why do I get a feeling that Adam will post soon that the update will be postponed and we should fold our tents and put out the campfire.

Hey everyone,

 

We have a small art update today with a few new screenshots, but it's not going to be the big update. We decided that we didn't want to launch the backer portal so close to Thanksgiving because of the technical issues that may arise and many of us will be out of town for the holiday. We are "beta" testing the site right now internally, and Darren is hard at work ironing out issues.

 

We are really sorry about the delay. The team is excited about it just as much as all of you. :)

 

-Adam

Thanks for mentioning it early today anyway.

Now hoping that magically everything works fine and we get the update still today. :)

Thanks for the heads up, Adam. I'll probably read the update tomorrow.
