^Yooka Laylee & Bloodstained both seem to be doing right by the fans, at least [Banjo and Castlevania both in all but name, with new twists]. Shenmue 3 will probably (hopefully) turn out well as well. Other projects like this, Red Ash, Unsung Story (that was supposed to be Matsuno's new game which he apparently ducked out of) and Project Phoenix though? Yeah, complete messes.

I don't mean to say that there won't be good games made through kickstarter (hopefully shenmue 3 is one of them). But I honestly see the kickstarter thing being a huge "fad" -- for lack of a better word. People are nostalgic for this particular type of game, but that nostalgia for that particular game will get overhyped, and the consumer will get emotionally invested in it (because they are financially invested in it), so when it finally comes out it'll likely be a let-down. Or maybe the game will be exactly what they wished for, but people may realize that it's not necessarily what they wanted -- despite thinking so. After a couple of let-downs (not necessarily through lack of game quality, but instead through lack of meeting the fan's hype/expectations/nostalgia), people will likely be hesitant to back and support kickstarter projects. At least this is what I expect to happen.

Of course I'm entirely grateful for kickstarter existing, since it's given opportunity for shenmue 3 to finally exist. None of the other games are really comparable to the importance of shenmue 3 being made, imo. But of course, I'm biased.

I agree that if the output or general reception is less than stellar for a majority of games funded by Kickstarter then the popularity of pledging via the platform will plummet. There's also the huge delays too, which really isn't helping things. I remember playin the demo for that Jet Set Radio rip-off and it was a cross between platforming on the original Tomb Raider on a screen the size of a watch controlling it via a laptop touch pad whilst simultaneously tryna crack one off over Babestation before the free preview ends n your parents come back with their mates from a night on the piss.

Fucking hell this season has kicked it up a notch after last year's mediocre showing. Every episode has that wtf moment. You could even argue that this week's was some filler, but the show is that good, that filler is bringing characters back after 5 years who fans what went nuts just theorising about. Nothing to see here lol. Unbelievable show. I never want it to end. The husband of my maanger in work is a location manager for GOT here in Belfast and word is that there will be 2 more seasons with 6 episodes each to wrap it up.

Wow. This has to be the dumbest, most cringeworthy trailer I've ever seen for a videogame. Plus the game looks incredibly shitty. Doesn't get much worse than this I guess, but who knows. Red Ash or whatever it's called might just do that.

Yeah, Season 5 was definitely the weakest season of them all so far, I'd say. This season however has definitely upped the stakes in a lot of ways and concluded some long standing storylines from ages ago too
what happened to Osha and Rickon, the Iron Islands and Theon's family etc


This season has been an absolute bloodbath, think it probably has the record for the most character deaths yet, surely?

WTF happened to Gendry anyway? Surely stopped rowing the boat by now. #-o
And Thoros and Beric Dondarrion?
Will Arya kill them?
