  1. So you'd be happy with waiting.... 1 year for a 9" black and white TV with no sound and only 1 channel 2 years for a 13" B&W TV with sound, but the sound is just elevator music 3 years for a 19" color TV with actual sound, still only 1 channel though 4 years for a 27" color TV with sound and 10 channels 5 years for a 42" LED TV with sound and 99 channels 6 years They remove 43 channels and replace the sound with monkeys banging on trash cans because the CEO likes that kind stuff better. 7 years The TV is now a 60" projection big screen that weighs 690 lbs. It gets 56 channels and still has monkeys banging on trash cans for sound. No wireless or smart features even though they were promised. But if you spend 200 hours rewiring your TV and rewriting every line of code in the firmware, you can get actual audio instead of trash monkeys, and you can enable an additional 1200 channels. Still no smart features or internet connectivity. Still a ungodly bulky projection screen.
  2. Right there where it says what each pledge level will receive. Pledge US$ 35 or more THE SUNRISE SURVIVALIST - Early Alpha Access + Beta + Finished Game + Kickstarter Backer Badge Estimated delivery Aug 2013
  3. My analogy is spot on. The kickstarter goals have NOT been delivered. It's why thousands of people have demanded refunds. Your analogy is not applicable at all because the final promised product has not yet been delivered. If they released Gold tomorrow and it contained all the kickstarter promised features, but it was slightly different than what we expected, then yes, your analogy would be appropriate. But as it stands now, your analogy is not based in truth and reality, whereas mine is. And I mean no disrespect when referring to Joel as a house flipper. I mention that as a sign of respect. Anyone who has chased turds and remodeled bathrooms deserves respect in my books, and I'm happy that he's made millions of dollars as a dev. I'm not happy that those millions were given to him and he has yet to deliver what was promised for those millions.
  4. Imagine Bowie selling millions of pre-ordered copies of his first album, one year before the album's actual release. The millions of investors were promised a full album with lyrics, vocals, guitars, bass, drums, synths, organs, pianos, backing vocals, harmonies, and a full album of 20 songs, all of which tell a cohesive themed story. In one year's time the album would be considered "Gold" status, or a completed product released in full. Then, a year later, he releases the album but it's just a recording of him literally reading partial lyrics to 5 songs. No instruments. No singing. Just him speaking some of the lyrics for 5 songs. A year later he has finally released an updated album which still doesn't deliver all that he promised. Album v2 is just 20 songs of spoken lyrics and him strumming a guitar for 5 minutes. A year later he adds some bass and drums to 11 tracks. A year later he adds piano and organs. After 4 years, all 20 songs now have guitar, bass, and drums. 5 years in, all the instruments except synths and vocals are done on all 20 songs. 6 years in, he has now finally added vocals. All the guitar and bass tracks that fans were really enjoying, despite having to wait for years to hear them, have now been removed and replaced with random sound clips of monkeys banging trash can lids together. 7 years in, After getting lots of negative feedback about the trash monkeys, Bowie decides that all the contractual obligations and promises mean nothing, he now focuses on adding more trash monkeys. 8 years in. Fueld by steroids and coke, Bowie has now completely taken out at least half of the elements of his album that people really enjoy and just replaced it with more monkey sounds. They now not only bang on trash cans, they also screech and throw feces onto walls. Fans continue to hate it, so he diverts a lot of the money he should be paying to the musicians helping him complete his album, and instead diverts those funds into the pockets of shills and fanbois who he can pay to improve his public image, and hopefully convince everyone that what they're listening to is purest art, not monkeys banging on trash cans.
  5. Can you imagine if Bowie sold millions of copies of his first album and then just handed fans an unfinished product that a lot of people and critics deemed as terrible, and then promised that he'd replace that album for free in a year's time with a spectacular finished album? And then 8 years later he still failed to deliver? Do you really want to compare the genius of Bowie to a house flipper turned independent game dev?
  6. Spoken like a kid who dreams of owning their own company one day. Successful companies focus on pleasing their customers, not their CEO.
  7. Dell G7 17-7700 i9-10885H RTX 2070 Super 32GB 2933mhz RAM 17.3" 300hz display 1TB ssd Windows 10 $1542.60 +tax Sorry, I just couldn't keep it a secret any longer. :D
  8. Depends on your budget and your performance expectations. Be as specific as possible so we can help you more. Something like "My budget is $2000 but I'd really like to stay under $1500 if at all possible. I'll be playing Game1, Game2, and Game3, and I'd like to be able to play those on High or Ultra settings with 60+ FPS. I'd also like to be able to play AAA titles on high/ultra settings for the next X years. I prefer 17" models but a 15" would be ok. I really want a display that is at least 144hz, and at least have 16gb ram and 512gb ssd." Just change these wishes to your own goals and I can definitely point you to a great deal. I'd tell you about the deal I got but nobody would believe me and it's not available anymore, it would just make people jealous if I talked about it here. lol.
