Crazy.

Without the people that backed the game, this game would have never happened.

I didn't back it, but even I understand that you can't piss those people off.

These guys just seem not to care, taking the approach that if you ignore it, it will go away.

I've compared this game to the master chief collection and I'm gonna do it again. 343 did the EXACT same things, releasing a broken game, taking months to fix said game, ignoring it when it was clear it couldn't be fixed, lied to people regarding it being the exact same halo games we remembered, etc.

 

I feel for you guys, and even if the devs don't appreciate y'all, just know that I do. I love this game so thank y'all.

 

Im sorry that the devs have lied and refuse to respond on this matter.

 

I disagree on importance of backers and claim game would not have been made without them.  The only difference I see his with kick starter, they wouldn't require oversight from a bigger studio (I'm assuming they could of gotten funding with f13 license). They probably wanted to be their own bosses and didn't want strict oversight. That's what backers can be given credit for,  letting these guys be their own bosses and not accountable to a larger studio.

I believe this game would have been called Summer Camp or something along those lines without the donations of backers to help them acquire the Friday lisence.

Has it been taken off the marketplace at least so no one else can get it? Last I saw it was up all day yesterday but if it's gone now I am sure many people missed out

Yes, after 12 hours it was finally removed from the Microsoft store.

So if you didn't get him, you've missed your chance.

I disagree. They didn't put the project on kickstater until after they were given the license.  Also the reason they gave for putting the project on kick starter didn't add up to me.  They didn't want to tone down the Gore? Games like last of us, evil within,  and God of war are still much more gory.

It was more around 17. An insane amount of time.

Either way 12/14 hours was way too long.

Along with the fact that the club I'm in with like 30 people was posting it, so everyone in that club has savini now.

 

i bet the bigger clubs with thousands of members had the majority of their members get him.

 

Its just no longer exclusive, and it's a bummer. I use to get so excited when I saw someone with Savini. Now, not so much.

IN B4 "Y NO TAKE AWAY PS4" comments.

 It's much easier for creators to show they worked in good faith,  than for backers to prove they didn't.  You are most likely not getting your money back,  nor do you have recourse for getting your money.  Sorry,  but that's just reality. 

No you are absolutely incorrect. Randy Greenbacks name is all over the receipts and a 25$ filing fee in ones local municipality will have Randy appear at that court for a small claim or judgement rendered against him. There will be no lawyers present and it is show or lose. As the sale was completed in the local municipality with an online transaction the local municipality is within it's jurisdiction. Don't think for a moment Gun is untouchable. There are a myriad of ways for them to be bankrupted in legal pursuits. One doesn't have to chase a class action as individuals have a right to file a small claims lawsuit against any individual they choose to and a day in court will happen and nothing can be done to stop it.

I say that simply because should Savini accidently be released on Steam i'm coming for my 6 dollars in the most expensive legal way possible. I'm tired of the bullshit sincerely. Get it fixed and secure and stop dicking around.

It's not a valid aregument.

PS4 players had to pay 5.99, the same amount backers had to pay to get him.

Microsoft released it for free.

Since Microsoft released paid content for free, they can take it away.

Since Sony released paid content, and people bought the paid content, Sony couldn't do anything about it as far as revoking it.

Difference is money.

I feel like there will be a lot of Xbox gamers coming to the forums bitching once it gets taken away.

 Even if microsoft pulls the skin,  backers are still going to demand further compensation.  I don't think there is anyway to please them aside from putting them in the game and letting everyone know they backed the game.

 then you get into arguments of exclusive and timeline for gifts. Winning in small claims also isn't a given.
