It will feature Overcharge mode and Grandview map, Turf War mode and the Promenade map with more content to be added for subsequent tests. You can still sign up here for a chance to to paticipate.

Closed alpha's followed by the rip-off 'early access' release.
Hmm.. that seems like a maybe, but I'm not sure I'm really against it.

I didn't know this game had a kickstarter.

Honestly.. I'm not sure. Thinking about it.

If you evaluate all of these things on a case-by-case basis, it doesn't seem so bad. On the other hand, there are examples of consumers getting burned in both of these scenarios. Maybe Valve could moderate early access with a heavier hand, but I think there are potential benefits for the consumer as well. What about season passes for episodic games or unfinished DLC? Is that okay? Consumers buy this stuff.. who am I to tell them that it's not okay?

Where do you draw the line? I'm not inherently against crowdfunding. What's most important to me is that the risks are communicated to the consumer. Kickstarter should not be seen as an investment.

Early Access is about the same as a Kickstarter. It's crowdfunding. Paying for an unfinished game. You agree, no?
No. In Early Access, you purchase a game you can actually play but just an unfinished version. You also have the Steam reviews to help you a lot here on how the game and the dev support is.

Kickstaretd is "hey guys we might make this give us money". There is a HUGE variety of Kickstarter campaigns. Some launch with just a promise and some concept art, some launch with demos and need money to put finishing touches.

Either way, there is absolutely nothing wrong with both models and nothing is unfair about either. Spend your money wisely, that's always up to you. No-one puts a gun on anyone's head for support of some Early Access or Kickstarter project, the risks are pretty clearly and fairly laid out for all.

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Right. I think programmable shaders were adopted fairly early on consoles (xbox360/ps3) (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @toelessfoot: Well, only recently they have been. I think this is the first gen I've seen where PC's are playing catch up. Not through hardware power, but through development cycles (4 Days ago)

  • toelessfoot

    toelessfoot Yeah I think innovations on the console side are taken up more quickly by PC than vice versa because consoles are really lead platform for everything (4 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite At least for most gamers. Similar to when everything went to pci-e (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite I think we could be seeing a dramatic shift in PC hardware where it'll be essential to own both an SSD and a next gen card with the api's to use them. That also would probably require new motherboards (5 Days ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite If a game is built from the ground up to take advantage of that, though... (5 Days ago)
