ThisGenGaming says "Mighty No 9 is once again in the news, and as you'd expect, it's for another comical reason like receiving a cheaply made physical box that comes with a manual that doesn't even fit inside."
All this bad press just makes Red Ash seem even more unlikely to actually come out
Considering it's aping Legends, that's a good thing.
You can get Mighty No. 9 as part of the Humble Bundle right now, one of 9 games for paying at least $5.08.... and I still don't want it, lol. Too many good games still in my backlog to even bother with it.
So.. what did you all learn? Maybe to hold onto your money until a product is proven to be worth it? Or just the usual... nothing.
I learned my lesson. That was the first and last Kickstarter I ever participated in.
Getting mad at a platform for development because 1 of the teams let you down is ridiculous, right?.. That's like boycotting the console you bought because one of the first party games came out that wasn't what it was supposed to be.. If everyone thought like that, most people who bought NMS, "who can see a forest for it's trees", on PS4 would have sold their PS4 and stopped buying Sony products as a whole because the product didn't end up being what was marketed. ..Now ask yourself... With thinking like that, where would Sony be?.. Consoles be?... Gaming be?.. May as well live in a cave eating moss and hunting rabbits if humans were so fickle.
I'm not "mad at the platform" I just don't buy games until they are done or at least have a solid foundation to show off. It's a completely rational point of view. I didn't call you an asshole for supporting Kickstarter, you should show the same respect.
I'm with opinionated on this one. it's the same as someone getting burned by pre order culture and then swearing off pre ordering games and waiting for reviews instead. I'm guilty of using kickstarter solely as a preorder service, I've since stopped due to coming across some horror stories so I can see where he's coming from.
Backed around 100 Kickstarters, so far the only real let downs I have had are the bigger traditional games coming from Japan. Mighty No. 9 and Project Phoenix have been two big black marks. These bigger projects balloon in features and expectations and cease to be realistic in their goals. Still waiting to see how Bloodstained turns out. Everything else however has been a delight regardless of whether it was a game, book, film, animation, or tech.
Well, at least it came out. It could have been like H Hour and not even see the light of day. That was the first and last kickstarter I supported.
I supported Shenmue 3. I have a bit more faith in the developer though.
There is no lesson in getting burned, unless you count giving up and not living. Kickstarter is an incredible platform that has funded many amazing titles that would never have worked being pitched to a greed giant like a publisher. It's worked in the past, it's working now, and it's continuing to fund great games going forward. But lets take a piss on one of the only community funding options for games REAL gamers care about because occasionally things don't work out in life.
Never Trust Keiji Inafune
"So what did you all learn? Never to take risks and help make something" What a life lesson. Also, find a boring, but safe job and work there until you die. Or, you know, make some errors sometimes on the chance that you'll hit greatness.
lol it's kind of hilarious but oh so tragic.
I wasn't going to touch this game with a 10 foot pole, but it's part of a humble bundle I just bought. I don't know if I even want to bother to redeem the code.

what an obsolete reply.
yep, it faded away and classified itself as obsolete :D
With how much money this campaign made, it's absolutely sick. I feel sorry for the 3rd party providers that have been swallowed up in negative press due to the ordeal.
wow, many kickstarter games turned out awesome and really pleased their niche audiences, but this is a disaster.
Unfortunately, we only ever hear about the bad sides of kickstarter. There are many examples of games which did deliver, but we hear the one in ten which completely screws the pooch.
Isn't there supposto be a 3ds and vita version? Keiji inafune is happily counting his money while ignoring the complaints. Hopefully people wake up to what he's really about. Still bothers me that mighty 9 got way more press coverage than the infinitely better azure striker gunvolt 2. If people want a good megaman game get gunvolt 2.
It's to bad the Mighty No.9 guy shows up in Azure Striker Burst, he brings down the whole package.
He only shows up in the 8bit bonus game, mighty gunvolt. So it's ok.
I feel so bad for the people who were scammed from this... quite unfortunate
Never again. I hope that no one supports them again, and they have no reason to do another kickstarter game either. Shame on the entire team.
Keiji Inafune, must of took a lot of the kickstarter money for himself. He likely got more wealthy, while the people that supported him, essentially got used.
Personally I don't think Mighty #9 is all THAT bad. I kinda enjoy it.
Lol assemble the box yourself.. and I thought the Obduction backers got it bad. This takes it to a whole new level.
I almost tore mine up but decided it can hold my Genesis Copy of Shadow Blasters that was loose. Screw Inafune. Never buying anything from that studio ever again.
My how things change I remember back when the game was first announced. Everyone was like "YAY fuck Capcom!" Now it's the complete opposite lol.
