Why the fuck should someone know the difference between a publisher and a developer in order to purchase a game?

I though we were buying products and services from them, not working for them. Making an educated purchase should mean you've spend 20 minutes reading some reviews and watching a trailer. If more research than that is needed for purchasing something as simple a game then that game is not worth purchasing because it's too much work.

I agree with OP.

There's a balance between allowing business as much freedom as possible, while at the same time making sure that underdelivering won't be a viable way to make profit.

Kickstarter, Early access, etc. would be good tools, but right now our consumer protection is lagging behind and it's creating a situation where companies aiming to grab cash and deliver inferior products can succeed and thrive just as well as companies making great products.

Better consumer protection would be good, because every dollar lost to cash grabs quickly turns into 2 dollars that won't be given to good products because the people get disappointed and won't trust even those devs who do their best to give us as good game as possible.

AMD and NVidia are right now launching new top-end products and competing with them, but that's unlikely to affect GTX 970's prices much.

The prices are always dropping, so if you wait 4-8 weeks you'll save money. But then you're again in a situation where if you wait another 4-8 weeks you'll save more money, and again in a situation where if you wait 4-8 weeks you'll save more money.

My advice is to just buy the graphic card when you need it. Now is as good (or bad) time to make the purchase as any.

Agreed

I was just wondering if there was likely to be a price shift anytime soon. 

If you're willing to wait it's likely that there will be a price drop within next 5 months. It looks like at least AMD is very soon ready to launch a bunch of new cards, but they've been teasing people about them, leaking some info about them, then delaying them for some time now. If I'd have to guess whether they manage to launch them early enough to drop GTX 970's price within 4-8 weeks, I'd say no.

Meanwhile NVidia looks like it's launching Titan X, but I don't know if that's a reason for them to drop their other prices so much because Titan is a completely different price range product.

How would your tool be different from something like Doodle?

Bashing kickstarter itself is like bashing ebay, or alieexpress because something u bought of a random person non affiliated to the company is bad, or they sent u a brick instead the stuff you ordered. You'd check whom you're giving your money thoroughly or at least sufficiently, and chose wisely how much u give where, depending on a multitude of factors, ...

If Kickstarter had a working reputation system and offered refunds when the project fails to deliver like Ebay does, I think we would bash Kickstarter a lot less.

I feel like from what I've seen in Asia they are heavily into sex type stuff and I've heard there is a lot of rape there.  In the US there used to be a lot of sexual harassment, but it's gone down a lot because of women in power putting in place laws to stop people from harassing women in or even outside of business environments.  It's against the law.

You've heard completely false information. In 2010 USA had 27.3 reported rapes per 100 000 people, whereas Japan had only 1 reported rape per 100 000 people. 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rape_statistics

That doesn't mean there wouldn't be a lot of rape somewhere in Asia, but those countries don't have that much sex type stuff.

I see one problem with your suggestion: How do we guarantee human rights of the AI created? Someone intelligent enough to do all that would probably already be sentient.

Italy 5.6 mbps.

I think the mobile connection speeds are interesting: All 22 European countries in their mobile speed statistics have better average mobile connection speeds than USA. 45% of those countries get more than twice the speed of USA.

The thing to not forget, is that Kickstarter is not some benevolent charity: they take what? 7% or 7.5% off the top from every project that is successfully launched?

They take a bit over 8%: 5% for using Kickstarter and payment processing fee of 3% + 0,20$/backer.

Pyramid schemes are about members which recruit other members.

That's what all the gaming sites are who recruit new people to Kickstarter through advertisments are. They're the members.

With money from the bottom of the pyramid, the backers.

As far as the argument, "backers don't benefit financially, so it's not a pyramid scheme". Many sects and religions like scientology are pyramid schemes, and have been convicted for being pyramid schemes, financial gain isn't a requirement.

You still don't understand:

Pyramid scheme would mean that you have a recruiter recruiting more recruiters, who in turn recruit more recruiters, who recruit even more recruiters. Crowfall is not a pyramid scheme because those recruited by MMORPG.com are not asked to recruit any more people.

Crowfall might be a scam, and the money could flow exactly as your pyramid described, but it wouldn't be a pyramid scheme.

EDIT: I found a picture explaining what is a pyramid scheme: http://survivingaftercollege.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/pyramid-scheme.jpg /EDIT

Kickstarter fees alone are more than 100 000$ for a project that raises as much money as Crowfall has done. Shouldn't they have spend the money on actual game development instead of Kickstarter fees?

 

The Kickstarter fees are somewhat of a moot point if the money is raised through Kickstarter in the first place.

Sure you can raise money without KS, but what will that cost you?

How much is the Kickstarter publicity worth? Lots of people browsing there. Also, "Kickstarter campaign!" is a good buzzy thing for marketing that everyone immediately understands, that's a lot of value right there. 

How much do other payment solutions cost? (they usually all take percentages) How much does it cost to roll and run your own? (customer service, dealing with fraud, back fees, legal, etc.) 

How many potential customers would be scared away by not using a big known site like Kickstarter? (we all have those shady/scammy wannabe-ones in the back of our heads)

Lots of questions.

I don't think Kickstarter fees are a moot point. You yourself raise the question how much Kickstarter publicity is worth. If we are to consider how ethical it is to spend money advertising your crowdfunding project, then we must also take into account that devs don't choose Kickstarter because it's the cheapest way to make sales. They choose it because it's good for advertising.

Shouldn't the question be extended: Is it ethical to spend money on Kickstarter while you're begging money through Kickstarter?

Mikeha: I think Large Format Displays are displays designed for businesses. If you want a display with good viewing angles that displays ads for your business 24/7 then Large Format Display is best.

Probably you could use Large Format Display in home and for gaming, but I think a TV might be better option.

It's what the dungeon running in WoW is right now. At max. level there will be exceptions, but everything before that is more or less a speed run if you join through group finder.

You play one character, just like in most other MMOs.

Short summary of the game: Large scale faction vs. faction (or guild vs. guild) warfare on huge maps that can last a month. There's hopefully a lot of fortification building, crafting, gathering, etc. included so that the war should hopefully be strategical and not just a competition of who is the best killer.

At the end of the campaign the winner gets to take loot to his (or his guild's) instanced home called Eternal Kingdom, and use it for building, crafting and upkeep costs of that instanced home.

Torrents...most of the data included in a torrent is going to be pirated or copyrighted data for the express purpose of sharing said data on the internet. Why would the FCC have an issue with blocking Torrents? Sure you can drum up excuses and some may say the data they use them for is legal but c'mon, can we dispense with the pretense that torrents/nzb files are used by people that are what...backing up their own data? Pirated music, pirated tv or movie programs, porn, documents and software are what people are using torrents for. I'd have no issue with people being blocked for using torrents and nzb files. People have a very warped sense of entitlement that includes breaking the law and not even thinking twice about it. 

Torrents are used, among other things, by WoW players updating their game. At one point some ISPs throttled World of Warcraft because of that.

I bet some of you are against the FCC when it regulates content on TV or film, or when government tries to regulate video game violence and sex with ratings.  I just find it odd that some people are for government-regulated internet traffic, yet against government-regulated entertainment.  They are inconsistent about government intervention.

People are demanding equal opportunity for watching all kinds of TV and film when they're against regulations.

People are demanding equal opportunity to look at all kinds of web contents when they're demanding net neutrality.

I think they're very consistent that they want to be able to watch and kind of TV, film or internet content. Whether that freedom is achieved through deregulation, or through regulation that forces ISPs to give equal treatment to all kinds of content, doesn't matter. As long as the result it being about to effortlessly watch anything you want most people don't give a shit about how that result is achieved.

Elite: Dangerous

It's not real MMORPG, but I think it's the only one released with good VR support.
