Place Your Bets: Hurrah, dystopia! Edition photo
Place Your Bets: Hurrah, dystopia! Edition
by Allistair Pinsof

At the end of every year, we walk away with a couple words that define it. Though we aren't even halfway through 2012, I have a feeling "Kickstarter" is going to be one of them.

Kickstarter is a site where people like you and me can both fund a project (game, film, etc.) and pitch a project that others can fund so that we can go out in the world and make it happen. You most likely know this, though. Not only do you know this, but you are absolutely sick of the word and its ubiquity on gaming sites and Twitter as of late, right?

With three games recently pulling in over a million dollars in backing, Kickstarter isn't a trend that will go away if we ignore it. It’s making developers envious, publishers annoyed, gaming press confused, and game enthusiasts excited.

Me? I'm skeptical more than anything. I'm skeptical that all involved parties will be happy in the end. In order to follow this unforeseen force in the industry, I am launching a new Destructoid Original series where I will keep tabs on the good, bad, and weird coming out of Kickstarter.com.

Where other sites have been pointing you toward Kickstarter campaigns with the enthusiasm of a PR firm, we here at Destructoid will breakdown the reality of projects, instead of sell you a developer's dream. Every other week we will take a look at some recent Kickstarters and analyze if they will succeed and if they deserve to in the first place.

The DTOID Show: Bioshock, Mechwarrior, & Kickstarter
by Max Scoville



Hey guys! Here we are again!

Today's show, we talk about how Kickstarter is the hottest thing on the web right now, and how Tim Schafer's Double Fine Adventure raised 3.3 million dollars, and how inXile's Wasteland 2 is in the process of being crowd-funded. Bioshock Infinite's got some kickass enemies, including a robotic George Washington, and Mechwarrior Online has BattleMechs running on CryEngine3. For reasons that I cannot figure out, but which make me smile, Double Fine has decided to organize a gamejam based around the brilliant ideas of Peter Molydeux, the fake Peter Molyneux Twitter account.

Finally, we talk about Mass Effect 3 some more. I'm so sick of hearing about this game. Nothing makes me want to go live in the woods and read books than people on the internet getting this upset a video game. That being said, bravo, money has been raised for charity. Apparently BioWare pissed people off so much, they had a fundraiser. What is this I don't even.

Most importantly: WE ARE HAVING A NINJA DRESSUP CONTEST, PLEASE PARTICIPATE FOR FREE GAMES!
