  Ok call me shallow but they really need to change the name of this game.

 

  I'm pretty sure that's not how they spell the characters name in the Big Bang Theory, and wouldn't his crisis be weather someone touched his food or was sitting in his spot? :)

 Well one things for sure after trying DF you will really appreciate Wildstar and TESO a lot more. While both those game have their problems at least they are run by companies that actually talk to their players once in a while and let them know what's going on rather then aventurines "lets screw the players over and leave them in the dark because they don't know what they really want anyway approach" I mean really this is a game company that waited till the day of release to say oops we aren't ready yet their will be a several month delay after which they still wound up releasing a pay to play beta.

Absolutely agree with what was said in the article, though I think some of the ratings are a bit high.  I bought the game even though there was a lot of negatives and people screaming "Run Fast and Far Away!".  But I have a lot of friends that I got into Sacred in the early days, and I wanted an un-biased review.  So I bit the bullet, and boy were people right.


The worst for me was the impossible keyboard control, just to move your character in a straight line down a corridor.  yes, a game pad did help, but you have just thrown away 50% or more of your playerbase just by awful controls.


Glad the developer published an apology, though he did not have to.   The company really needs to send out an apology and remove this piece of trash from existence.



 "A fool and his money are soon parted"


 Lots of reviews not a single one good about this game and you had to go and support them so they'll make a even more shoddy sacred 4 or take the name of some other fairly well know game and destroy it.


  Still that's why shoddy campanies like this one use the names of past successful games. They know they can just rush any crap out the door with a name on it and some fan will buy it for name alone even when they've been told (a lot) how bad it is.....


  Sad

It was never an issue of entitlement. It's, as mentioned, a mean to justify dismissing people as being "lesser" than yourself.

Asking for games to release as F2Ps isn't only a reaction to the popularity of the F2P model, but also a sign that many gamers do not trust MMOs developers anymore to invest $60 for a box and monthly subscriptions only to find out that they don't like the game or that the game is of poor quality, which we have seen countless times with every new releases over the last few years. 

 

 But yet these same entitle gamers will go to a movie they may well know nothing about and toss down their money for 2 hours of what might be total crap, or go to a restraunt they've never been too and haven't read any reviews about and spend as much for a meal they find they hate.

   If someone is not even bother to try the pre release betas which almost ever MMO has, or check out some utube videos etc. to see what they are buying then why should they be able to go running to the phone to do charge back on their credit cards after playing a the MMO for for 2 weeks to a month and deciding then they don't like it?

   While not all gamers do that more then enough do and proudly post about it here so Yes there IS a hell of a lot of entitlement among gamers.

  

The so called great free2play games of today all started with subscriptions. (LoTRO, EQ2, SW:TOR etc.

 I'd counter that none of them would have lasted more then a few months had they started as F2P. In most cases after these MMO's had years of fairly steady subscription income that allowed for expansions, improvement and paid off their development cost as well as being in the black for sometime (SW:TOR probably being the exception with its only 1 year of subscriptions before f2p) that allowed them to be able to convert to F2P and exist off cash shop without nickle and dimeing their players to the normal; F2P game extremes.

  GW2 was B2P and did ok but obviously from the state of the living story these days their cash shop model is not bringing in enough money for decent , tested content. (yes you get what you pay for. Free content in this case being buggy, short, and lame. Sorry GW2)

  Neverwinter suffers much the same fate. it started with what 4 classes and has gained a whole 1 and some moderate fluff content? Once again its free and what you get is what you get, it might be subpar like most f2p content but one can't complain really because its free. Personally I'd rather pay a sub for a game and play when I want to rather then feel forced to log in twice a day everyday to get coins, and bonuses that you loses if you miss even 1 day out of the week logging in. I won't even get into how it artificially level ones characters so you might well soon reach max level while still having little monwey only first level items and having never really played thus having no real idea how ones class/skills should really be played/used for decent effect.

  In the end players have even less control over content in F2P games as most cash shops sell items not content, thus 90% of all development in these free to play games is directed toward making flashier mounts or snazzier item skins, and lock boxes rather then actual content.

  Saying that the average "I'll wait till its F2P" gamer here that will generally follow up and admit they never pay a dime in their games and why should they when there are whales to support the game, aren't entitled is plan crazy.

 

Once again you get what you pay for, Sooo you pay nothing and get rather buggy fairly short and rather lame living story updates. Is it worth returning?? Depends on how hard up you are for a MMO to play and how much your time is worth to you.

Ignore him already. If you keep replying to his BS he will come back with more.

 

Also, for some reason people in here believe that EA is making ME 4. The DEVELOPER is Bioware.

 Bioware was bought by EA somewhat before DA2 most people will argue its game quality has gone downhill since then. If you don't believe EA doesn't very much control Bioware (ie EAoware) after shelling out a ton of money to buy it your are not living in the real world.

Omg dihoru, that was some nasty stuff. ME was awesome. 10 minute ending can't make the other hundred hours of pure awesomeness absolute. And stop it with the whole if it is popular it is crap thing. It makes you look like a damn hippie.

 Really? In ME 1, 2 and most of 3 you fight the evilest thing in creation that's been wiping out entire civilizations for eons so in the last 10 mins you become its best buddy because its wearing the form of a human child it had slaughter, and then commit suicide because it tells you too. Yeah that's um awesome.... not

I just want to take the time to say thanks. Thanks for showing exactly why we can never get real freedom in our games or their mechanics. As long as people think freedom is there so you can ruin another's experience for shits and giggles, we'll never get real sandbox mechanics, People need to learn there's a difference between "playing the bad guy" and "being the bad guy", too many fall into the latter thinking they're the former. 

 People like to be asshats.

Sept the 16th !!! A day that will turn out to be just another over hyped release day for a mediocre game that's been out for 2 years already. Hopefully they will have ironed out the launch bugs by now (third times a charm!)

 So my Mako is a Spacecraft attached to Monster truck wheels????!!! I guess after the "art" they did with ME3 they can try and get away with anything.

 Obviously ME4 has to take place before ME3 when all the races in the galaxy were turned into Reaverspawn (can't be human if your techno-organic) Seriously they destroyed the ME universe in ME3, ME4 is just a money grab.

Typical guy who thinks things that are popular are bad. I think if WoW was garbage it wouldn't be the #1 MMO on the market.

Also, more people have played WoW than the original Warcraft.

 

Lots of people also played Mario, D&D, and Wing Commander. All those movies turned out to be steaming piles of crap which I suspect the WoW movie will be as well, that is in less they have kungfu pandas in it as almost everyone loves a good Jack Black cartoon.

 
Wow Obsidian and Mail.ru how low obsidian has fallen

I think you must be confused I have been playing quite a few games this year all funded via kickstarter and you know what they have been a hell of a lot better than any AAA title released this year.

The latest one for me is Divinity: Original Sin I think one of the best games I have played in many years and you know what its only got released like this because of kickstarter. Next one I am looking forward to is Wasteland 2 by the looks of that I will be very happy with it as well.

 

As for After Reset i like what they are saying and what they ahve shown so far so I may end up backing this as well.

I think kickstarter is the best thing that ever happened. It is clearly a sign of prosperity and how we progressed as humanity because apparently, people have A LOT of disposable cash. Even the ones who clearly can not handle that amount of cash and just waste it. So kickstarter is a way to funnel that 'soon to be wasted' resources into the pockets of more capable persons.

 

Win/win right?

plus it produces some pretty damn good games like divine divinity, shadowrun and others, much better then crap like DA2, and mass effect 3 that the big companies are trying to shovel down our throats as art. Yes EA has the money to make sure MMORPG.COM has a article every week about how the next dragon age will be the best rpg ever because it has a fully gay mage. That doesn't mean its gonna be good.

I think kickstarter is nothing more than a scam.  You have oculus taking millions turning that around into billion, what did the kickstart supporters get?  NOTHING!  The supports say it's like sharktank or any investment.  Well for those who actually invest yes for kickstarter NO.  Tell me which shark would put money into something with a guarantee of ZERO return in investment?  Which one would do that?  Let me tell you none.  

 

 

There are episodes of shark tank where people who been on kickstarter come on the show and get invested in...So I guess not none.

There is a guarantee as well, they are bound by law to produce something to give to their backers. If not they can be taken to court. If you check out their FAQ it says they sign something before hand, only problem is kickstarter will not get involved if they think the company actually tried producing something, meaning the mass would have to take them to court by themselves.

Shark tank invests so regardless of the kickstarter or not they are not giving them money like kickstarter did. When a kickstarter company starts to offer profit sharing with its backers, then they'll be on the same ground as shark tank ( kind of )

And one example of the state filing a lawsuit really doesn't open the doors wide on making sure a kickstater always delivers. If a kickstarter could show they actually used that money on the game but just ran out of funding there is nothing anyone could do to them in a court. The kickstarter that is getting sued produced nothing and has no evidence that they even worked on their project.

Isnt it the exact same thing? I invest $20, I either get a return on my investment for a $50-60 game, or the game doesnt produce anything and you lose out on your investment.

How is that different from investing in a company? Someone invests in a company and a a deal is made, if the company does well they get about a 20-30% return on your investment. If the company tanks you get nothing.

So with kickstarter you get a 200-300% return on your investment,  investing in a company you get a 20-30% return.

Correct me if I am wrong, but kickstarter is not an investment.  You pay money towards a game that may or may not materialise, and if it does may or may not match (the usually over-stated) description.  

An investment is a risk with the possibility of huge rewards.  Kickstarter is a risk WITHOUT the possibility of huge rewards.  

I think 200-300% return on your investment is a huge reward. That is considered a great investment among any investor.

What are you referring to?  If you are referring to an arbitrary price that a developer attaches to a game, that is not a return on an investment.  A return on an investment is taking a share of the profits made.  

Yes. The share of the profit is the game created, its the share you agreed on before hand like any investment.

No it is not.  You effectively by an unfinished game at a knock down price.  You do not know if the game will or will not ever be finished, and if it is you do not know what that finished product will be.  You do not buy a share in the company and the associated rewards should it prove successful.  

So you only get something if the company does well. Sounds like an investment to me.

by your argument every time you go to the store and buy a head of lettuce you investing in the farm that grew it. please stop as your just embarrassing yourself now if you don't know the difference between product and profit. kickstarter backers may get a product, investers may get a profit

Steampunk is one of the reason most won't play this game. Really IMHO if your gonna mix tech and magic do it right with modern day or sci-fi tech like Shadowrun Steam punk just seems to be so 1800 muskets and pistol acting like modern day automatic rifles and revolvers 

A lot of people really like Steampunk. It's a neat style. Even TSW which is modern has some Steampunk elements.

 Maybe its just me being to picky but if your gonna have a flintlock single shot rifle shooting like a machinegun, or a single shot pistol firing like a automatic revolver you might as well make them modern day tech YMMV. Obviously all to their own.

I wonder which it really is Brad.

You claim all the information about financials is half-truths and lies. Yet you admit that people who know the financials released that information so it must be true. You can't have it both ways. Either the facts are you or did not take $45k for yourself as an advance which was posted on your official site and posted officially on the Pantheon FB page, advance means for future work not yet done, or you paid yourself a industry salary for a crowd funded game with no guarantee of funding. If it is not true, then why did you ask Frenzic to do it and admit to someone else you asked them to do it? Are you usually into sabotaging your own work?

Either you did pay all the original team everything you were contracted to do or you didn't. You claim you paid them but then why do you need to go buy all these Unity licenses? Some of your old team would have had to buy them. Didn't you pay them back for that? If so, then wouldn't you have those licenses or is it like they have said and you never paid them so they kept the licenses? The only one I see spouting half truths is you. You can't even keep your own story straight.

What about going back to your original development team after they told you they would not work for you anymore and you asked for money back that you paid them for work done? Is that a rumor too?

You claim you have spent months looking for investors. I counted about 45 days or so not including Weekends or even Fridays for the period in which you claimed to be hard at it looking for investors. At a minimum of 2 meetings a day for someone like yourself who you claim is highly motivated to find investment that's at least 90 people/groups. You couldn't get 1 of them... oh, sorry, you did get 1 of them to give you $25k with a promise of $200K+ more before their Trust fund people said no, the investment wasn't a good one. By now you have likely talked with EVERY potential investor in your area and beyond who you thought you had the best chances with. If those people don't have faith in your ability to make Pantheon Profitable why then should I or others keep giving you our few dollars a month?

You claimed in April when you had your interview with us that you had "an impressive demo" that you were sure would satisfy any investor as to the validity of your project. Now we see you back at square 1 with nothing actually created. You take unity assets, place them like Lego and claim it is an original work in progress and you plan on just changing the skins. No matter how you dress a pig, it's still a pig.

Not to take anything away from your team of volunteer amateurs, but that is what they are, by your own admission.

What about your Financial Advisor Friend Chris, who you gave $20k to? Was that to pay off your bills to him or to invest and grow for your future? He has a portfolio worth about a Billion dollars. You know when you own financial investor friend wont risk money investing in you, you have nothing and everyone else who is a legitimate investor I think knows this too.

How much is your web hosting costing you? We know who your web host is and how you got your web hosting. We also have very very strong suspicions that you are getting your web hosting for free (Source Rerolled) yet you had a good month where you claimed all income was going to maintain the web site while development was halted.

You already had a world map, even a zone map and a ton of lore. Why are you redacting all of that work already done and "paid for"? Yes, you paid the original team something, but it wasn't everything and on that they all have agreed. Why did you contract out your friends in the first place? Why didn't you make them all equal partners in the project? As a crowd funded game why don't open your books like RSI has to the community and let us be the judges of the truth?

It's smoke and mirrors. I have asked you a lot of questions and you have answered very few of them. I have given you an open forum on K-TAM to talk with people and you haven't. You wait until all the previous dev's have moved on to now pull your head out of the sand looking for the all clear. K-TAM still represents a portion of the gaming community following this project who have questions about your ability to do anything positive for this project going forward. Your name has no value. What about brad McQuaid other than your name brings any value to this project? The Concept of Pantheon was not even yours to begin with. It was Tony Vhalen Garcia's. You just co-opted it like you do everything it seems. Your vision is not even your own.

 I am glad I got my money back.

  Wow just wow!

  Put on the flame suite the diehard fanbois are gonna be after you!

I am actually pretty excited about this. Chocobo raising isn't some one off side activity. Its actually a meta for non combat activities. I am gonna be pretty busy the next couple months doing this.

I guess I should know better by now. Yoshi P doesn't mess around when he adds new content haha.

 Sounds interesting at least for the higher level crafters
