    Reaching 300k from 100k in just a few days? Color me skeptical. I wonder if they're bluffing, or if they actually reached that goal earlier but did not want to announce it immediately (though in the latter case, couldn't they have announced reaching the first goal earlier so as to space things out better)? But maybe there has actually been lots of hype for the game, dunno.

    Anyway, I'm actually looking fwd to the game. Just curious how well it can do.

    You and your ghosttagging Infinitron :argh:
    So it looks like they just waited until the very end to announce that they surpassed 300k, huh. Oh, and they also held off on announcing it when the first goal was met? Playing it very strategic with their weird marketing schemes. :?
    I'm surprised they didn't drop the price to $30 after all. I think it was you, Infinitron, who suggested that this whole wishlist initiative was conceived because they realized the suggested price was too high, and saw an opportunity to turn the price drop into a PR scheme. That might still be true, of course; maybe they just settled for $35.

    I haven't followed all the news, so is grid-based movement in there on release or not?

    Having to upgrade your PC for a blobber. What a time to be alive.

    The maps don't appear to be designed with grid movement in mind, so you aren't missing much. Much like playing with waypoints removed, it can be done, but without design consideration, it's a half-baked feature at best.

    This must be the most poorly optimised piece of shit i have seen in my life! I could run the witcher 3 on normal and the game looks good. This shit is mainly static with a few effects from time to time! How the fuck it would need more power than the witcher?????

    It's nice, but if you have slowdown in your goddam launch trailer you need to fire someone stat.

    So I'm thinking that the story of BEvers is that Infinitron created an alt for shitposting, but then failed to suppress his natural instincts and is now posting news with that one as well.

    Pretty good.
    Don't like that combat. reminds me of Original sin.
    Why can't it be simpler? Like in blobber. Just click to hit. Maybe cast a fireball.

    This is going to be this game undoing. Even if initial sales are solid, many will refund due to poor performance.

    I agree,also not many blobber fans are known for their monster rigs. Blobber needing a pc upgrade is ridiculous.

    Haha, I gotta say in all my years of gaming, this is the first time I see a trailer with framerate dropping to 15 FPS.

    After playing Wizardry 8, again on a whim I looked up Falcon Northwest and apparently they are still a thing. I guess that add still technically works for them.

    For those who've played through the beta is the music in game good enough to warrant the extra $30 you'd have to spend for the Platinum Edition compared to the standard edition? Or $15 bucks if you compare it to the premium edition.
