    We all know that the Codex is full of a bunch of hypocrits, but it seems this site cannot even stick to its guns when it is roasting a company.

    The interview-cancellation butthurt drama thread just disappeared. I'd like to see some butthurt reactions, men!

    Ah, it was Retardo-ed. Should have put it there at the very beginning, instead of wating for weeks. But obviously we have to put up a good face again, Wasteland 3 was announced afterall.

    Codex needed to ditch that thread to become tier 1 again. (and fund Wasteland 3)

    Heard a bunch of grumblings about Inxile using Fig + conflict of interest via Brian Fargo.

    Sorry, been busy trying to MAGAing lately.

    I don't really know anything about this, this is the first time I heared it. But it makes some sense, Fargo being on the Fig board, it is a little sketchy. But I thought we were over this when Tim used Fig for Psychonauts 2.

    I still do not understand the need for a crowd funding. It worked when the banks and editors didn't know there was a market for these games or that the team could pull it off.

    Whether you like or not W2, Fargo has proven that the market exists and that they can pull it off (release it and have good enough sales ).

    So by this point it's just spending players money on a publicity stunt.

    It is easier to ask for this free money upfront, than taking a loan from a bank and pre-finance the project, and paying the interest afterwards. Maybe they have the money to develop the project without crowdfunding, maybe not, I didn't look at Inxile's books. And let's not kid ourselves if they can get free money from the fans who want to support them, they would be stupid not to.

    And the cost of the basic tier is just the retail price minus the Steam cut, so it's basically just a pre-order without Steam involved.

    Is it free money if you consider that those fans would have bought the game at full price and are instead doing it so with a huge discount ?

    Most people, even among the kickstarter backer crowd, aren't fans of a company but of a genre.
    And most wait for the verdict of the hivemind before buying a finished product.
    Not possible if you have to pay upfront of course.

    The issue is less about inXile and more about how weird the Psychonaughts 2 agreement was structured.

    The weird thing being that the agreement says the money raised for P2 doesn't have to be used for the game itself. One can argue, "who cares as long as the game is made? Which the agreement specifies".

    But that's a BS argument because it was marketed as an investment in the game. Not an effort to help DF's liquidity. It's a bait and switch and shady IMHO. At the end of the day though, it's the Fig investors' fault if they don't read the agreement.
