Say what you will about Harrison Ford, but he has a good point.

Thanks for sharing this, Isgrimnur. 

Man, I'm really sorry to hear about all the troubles Blackhawk is having and I'm happy to help.  I wish I could help out even more but I'm currently living off savings trying to get my business off the ground so money is tight.

Best of luck to Blackhawk and his family, things will be looking up soon!

I was never really sure why people were so up in arms about that preorder campaign when several similar ones have been done on Steam before.

Maybe this was the highest profile game to have a pre-order campaign like it?

I would say that a game like Bioshock Infinite is arguably even higher profile than this.  Other games like XCOM, Company of Heroes 2, Tropico 5 and such are not tiny indie games either (although Tropico probably has a smaller reach than any of the others).  It was even done just this summer for Tales of Zestria.  GTA V had a preorder program where your bonuses were actually worse the later you preordered.

Obviously people can change their minds about things, but to see people and gaming sites go out of their way to only now decide that this is a silly system just seems like another case of one outlet being unaware of past practices, putting up a clickbait outrage article and then other games news sites picking up and running with it without actually thinking it through.  This has been used for big games for several years, if you really cared about the issue the time for outrage seems well past.

Nice lineup.

Lineup for mine was epic.

Make sure you go to the late night karaoke. Cannibal Corpse doing 80's music karaoke style is perhaps the best thing musically I've ever seen. Totally worth the price of the cruise itself.

If you didn't play it during the original release, there's an updated Free version of Storm Casters called Storm Casters Ultra.  It's essentially the same game as the original but it's been tweaked and optimized and changed to a free game with IAP.  The IAP is largely optional.

The game is interesting.  Baseline it's an ARPG/shooter with elements of Diablo, etc.  In terms of combat it reminds me a lot of Hero Siege.  Each session is pretty short, just a few levels to make it through, but you have a time limit and very limited health.  In that way it's almost like a shooter, as you only can be hit once or twice.  What sets the gameplay apart is a mechanism that is both cool and annoying at the same time.  You collect "cards" of various rarity which offer the chance to see specific boosts in the play session, but you can only bring 3 (or 4) in to a session - at random.  Unlike other CCGs, though, you can't build/modify your deck, so as you get more and more cards, the chance of getting one of your favorites actually becomes less and less.  So if you like randomness, this is a very cool feature because every session will play slightly differently.  If you want more control/strategic play with the cards/boosts, you 're out of luck.  The only thing you can control is your character's attack power and the amount of time you have per session, which are upgraded through gold.

It's a different twist on the genre and while personally I would have liked more of a sense of control over my character, the randomness changing gameplay is certainly attractive as well.  I think at minimum I'd have liked a card pool limit.  Other than that definitely a fun game that's worth a look if you skipped it the first time around.

Thanks for posting this.  I find I really like these kind of campaigns (not because I like bad stuff happening to people) but because I find it easy to help.  I spend more than I gave on Diet Coke in a week but this way I feel like I am doing something useful.
