Human Resources looks great, but I was pretty bummed when they stopped development on Super Monday Night Combat abruptly to work on Planetary Annihilation, and I'm worried the same will happen again.
I'll always give an RTS a chance, I love the genre and there really aren't many on the market. That said I couldn't play planetary annihilation because it didn't feel tight, maybe I was just bad at the game, but I feel like finding my troups should not be a challenge every time.
You have to wonder if PA is a polished, complete game or not, and twice now Uber asks for a ton of money to play in a Beta. They are a little shady with their pre-release plans and post release you gotta ask if they're really giving full value. I would definitely wait this one out, get as much research before buying in, especially for the $40 Beta (which I would avoid because it's pretty ridiculous, Minecraft let you pay full retail ($15) and still get years of Beta exp).
This game looks good, but I will buy it when it goes on sale on steam or something.
So don't donate?
I would never be so audacious as to assume I know everyone. If you want to back it, do so, because HR looks rad. I'm just saying I have some reserved cynicism.
Yep, same here. I don't consider PA to be in an acceptable state yet and it's poor form to start crowd-funding their next game.
