    The lamp shtick did get a little out of hand, but at least it helped pass the time during the horrible site outages and ustream lag issues. I pledged as I miss Elite and space-sims in general. I enjoyed X, but the combat felt clunky to me.

    I think the disconcerting thing about that vid is the 3rd person camera. Obviously it's all very rough anyway but I do think that flight/space sims tend to look silly & arcadey outside the cockpit. Inside the cockpit I bet that would all feel a bit epic.

    With over $6,000,000 for a single game, it can be now said that Kickstarter is fully capable of funding AAA games.

    If you can make a AAA game with 6 million. Chris Roberts can't as there are a few additional millions by private investors. Normally AAA starts somewhere around 10m.
    Maybe you can get enough money for a Call of Duty or something. But those simply don't need to be kickstarted.

    I can't remember when or when I saw it, but they were talking about the differences between 3rd and 1st person cameras; 1st will give you more information, being able to see what's in the cock-pit. Ultimately I think it'll come down to preference and I'm glad they support both. First will probably force you to be more spatially aware too.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Gears of War 1 had a budget of 10m. That's not far away from 6.2m.

    Call of Duty doesn't need to be kickstarted, because it's a dumbed down game and traditional publishers like these. But imagine a game with visual polish of COD or GOW with actual depth to it, some innovations and interesting mechanics. Where extra money goes into mod tools and map editors, not DLC. Why not ?

    Total budget for game will be around 15 million dollars,they just needed 1.5-2 million to show investers that there is interest for game.
