I don't even want to know what he thinks that means.

And someone posted this article with plenty of nuggets of wisdom from our favorite visionary.

When the jackpot gets over $100 million, I go out and spend $10 on lottery tickets. I could win again. I probably will. What I expect is what will happen. I will win again.

Admittedly, three guys with genuine, lead experience in the industry asking for crowd-sourcing for a game (and so much lip service about "maturity" and "publishers") makes me think Kickstarter is on its way to becoming a paint-by-numbers guerrilla marketing generator, for producing AAA titles with even less money out of pocket for the same old developers.

This is my fear as well. How does the adage go? In business, it's always better use someone else's money before your own?

I mean I don't know if I'd do anything different if I and two or three other guys were worth $3 million net. That's smart economics. But as far as games go, it seems to be undercutting the principle Kickstarter is founded on. Because were I a developer, the last thing I would want to do is open my game up to crowd-sourcing ideas, its expectations and commit myself to a bunch of stupid personalized rewards.

I'm about to reverse my policy on not hating on this guy......

LOL, this guy moved to Westminster. Can you picture the blue bloods complaining about nouveau riche, then Ellwood Bartlett turns the corner?

It's been over 4 years since he won the jackpot, and considering all the stuff he's bought, I wonder how much he has left, and how much he needs to win again.

Not just business, though. If you don't have to use your money, you have more of it than you would've had.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

I laughed. I cried. So beautiful.
At least he set a somewhat realistic goal, and bullethell games can be pretty fun.

I realize his project was nowhere near as ridiculous as Ellwood's is, but something about the delivery in the video is comedic gold. Honestly, it was the music that put me over the edge.

I'll bet you $32 million she looks just like him.

By the by, The Banner Saga has made $10,000 in the last three hours.

Not another generic fantasy: Drawing heavily from Norse culture while creating its own identity and mythology, The Banner Saga takes a low-fantasy approach to viking themes. Giants: yes. Horned helmets: no

This article is related to concerns about Publisher vs Developer.  I'll be honest, I agree with the perception that Publishers are going to go all medieval with their contracts, ushering in a dark age for all those that will work on future games for them.
Or probably not that bad.  But, ya know.

The pull to put money into Banner Saga is strong.... it calls to me.  Like a sweet siren.
