I saw some bit of early gameplay, this was too obvious.

The gameplay was all about rich people wiggling with their money, excessively leveling the marketing, grinding on the generic gamer, and getting perfectly away with it due to a permanent bug in the system, that still has not been patched yet. The wiggling, leveling and grinding will continue. Nothing exciting to see here, moving on.

They are asking you to beta test something for them. I think I'll pass, only because I know I don't game that much, so I don't want them to waste a beta spot on me. Better if it goes to someone who will actually use it and give constant and relevant feedback. I just don't have that much time to play games anymore... Oh well.

They're going to beta test their GoG Galaxy service, which is basically their version of Steam. A client where you can add and organize your library, keep it updated and do all GoG related stuff through it, but also organize the online community for multiplayer titles.

Unlike Steam Galaxy is purely optional. I'm actually exited to see it in action, because that is what GoG has been missing, automatic updates and all this stuff.

I also actually didn't mind AvP 2010 so much, but maybe that's because the AvP movies and lack of Alien games for so long lowered my standards.

I tried to play it more regularly online, but the unfixable FOV killed it for me.

Its pretty early in its development.
Give it some time, eh?

The promise to bridge CoD, BF and ArmA is something time wont fix. But that's not necessarily a bad thing, perhaps only something a bit less attractive for some of us.

Not that bad, because it gives GB a chance to be the game it should be (as a first).

As Zeep said, Insurgency is CoD style merged with some realism. For some it makes it more playable/accesible, for others it's just something that holds back the potential that could be there. A matter of perspective I guess.

I opened up a can of worms. Let me close it quickly.

There, closed.

I understand too well, family, or other real life matters go first.

Just hold on to that nearest short term goal, whatever it might be.

Btw, I remember some game projects were funded via Indiegogo and if I'm not mistaken you keep what you get there, even if a goal is not reached. Am I correctly informed? Would that perhaps be an opportunity to "cash in"? I know that Indiegogo is less popular than Kickstarter, probably especially because of how it works, and with a project like GB it's even more problematic, I guess, but I keep seeing projects being launched there, other than just games and successful ones are there, too.

Is there no other way to get some cash (I just put it so bluntly)? Taking a loan is risky and you probably need too much of a sum anyway.

Guess back to same old then.
