The idea of Kickstarter is great. I love it, I have backed things in the past.
What I DON'T like seeing is major companies and rich people using kickstart. Get some investors or take out some stock for that.
Minecraft is a great example of your 1st point. Almost no marketing, but it went viral.
I don't think it literally means "gameplay", more so can a crappy game do good if you have a million dollar ad campaign for it.
Fighting games... *yawn*
Just happy to see Sony looking forward instead of trying to relive the past.
Not really sure how this is "flame bait?" Nothing bitter about his comment.
I want Jade Cocoon to come back. :(
