Someone hasn't read the kickstarter page.

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
The Story of Nexus is kinda bad mostly due to it's pace and narrative, a better way to resume it would be: An AI evolves beyond it's shackles (Common Cliche in Sci-Fi) and destroys it's creators (who seem to be alive now?), Angel, your AI, was designed to study and absorb "Mechanoid" technology to reverse engineer a way to destroy it, meanwhile it continued to spread across the Milky Way increasing it's computing capacity by assimilating networks like Internet 3, in the end it's assimilated by Angel and we get a funky undoing of earth's computerization.

Now the background story of 2 is that the Sol-Noah wormhole closed and Cromwell is trying to find a fay to fabricate them or cross the voids between solar systems... while earth goes back to being lead by corporate assholes.

That said, with the AI gone, I hope we get some more thought to go into the story.

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
Nah, I hate the story for tha path it takes.

Super-AI with powers that are basicly magical? Spiritual/religious refferences? The "anscesion at the end"?

I cannot express how much I hated those thing. I really cannot. There are not words to express it.

It is the reason I haven't pledged anything yet.  I'm still undecided.


That said - everythig else was great. I aboslutely loved the human ship designs. Not so sold on the ones I seen on kickstarter.

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
As much as it physically, painfully hurts me to agree with TrashMan on anything due to his abrasive, contrary posting style, I too dislike the new human ship designs.  I much preferred the old designs with all their separated armor plates and chunky, military design aesthetic.

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
Funny, people always asked for visually customisable ships, I guess the giant ones are supposed to be concepts for those? at any case, early Nexus one had "lame" ships too... ( the most prominent one being the body of a stiletto with the engines of a Noah cruiser...) The ships will evolve, and so will their coolness, the concepts for Noah are supposed to be the new Capital Ships. we haven't seen much about their lesser brethren.

Three days in and they have less than 10% of their goal. It's not going to happen, barring something like Notch deciding to fund it all by himself.

:(
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

I don't see a problem.

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
I would really love to see this game, I hoped they make a second attempt of crowd founding. Though new to kickstarter, can I only give money over creditcard ? Because I don't have one, and I don't intend to change that either..... Is there no Paypal option ?

Are you sure?

They're 4/30 days in and have 59775/650000.

.13 = .09

Given that Kickstarters historically tend to have most of their action in the last few days, I think they're doing okay. Not great, but okay.

Well now that you're challenging me I'm not sure, no! Jerk!

I haven't followed Kickstarter very closely, but of those I paid attention to my impression was they got over half their funding in the first few days, the money dried up for most of the rest of the month, and then there was a large infusion (though not as large as the first) of cash at the end. Maybe I was wrong! Maybe this post requires more exclamation points!

Re: Nexus 2 on Kickstarter (finally)
Yes, but most of those were projects with a lot of buzz attached to them, lots of big names. Like Project Eternity, for example.

Sure, that's true. I have been reassured, yay.
