      @Gaz I heard that alot too. Any news re Godus DRM or SP offline ?

    4. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Bill :-)

    5. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari I'm glad you love Steam. One day it will bite you and you will remember my words :-)

    6. Creator Stephen Usher on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari I think I might have to go and play Portal 2, for science. ;-)

    7. Creator Gaz Bailey [HappyMonday @FD Forum] on December 16, 2012

      RE Godus spike - Strangely,people are quite vocal about Molyneux's bad reputation for over promising.Isn't helping them.

    8. Creator Andrew Mitchell on December 16, 2012

      I'm all for extra decals etc being available for real cash once the game is on sale if it helps pay for the server costs.

    9. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari That is why I would not buy those Nike's for example locally I WOULD order from America!! Not that I would ever buy NIKE due to fair trade.

    10. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      I'll pop back in later on I have peoples heads to lob off in War of the Roses on Steam and then play some Planetside through Steam as well before going to work.

      Have fun chatting!

    11. Creator Hektor on December 16, 2012

      If all 16,000(ish) backers pledged an extra £30(ish) we would reach out goal. (ish).

      @T James Bye.

    13. Creator Andrew Mitchell on December 16, 2012

      Personally if a game is available both on steam and no on steam I go for the version not on steam. I was several years before I gave in and installed steam on my machine and I'm still not happy about what I had to agree that they could do to my PC at the time.

    14. Creator Stephen Usher on December 16, 2012

      @Charlie, actually, in keeping with the usual chav-mobiles, maybe it should be a clapped out Cobra Mk.I with massively stupid "upgrades"?

    15. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Dave now you know why SP offline was such an important issue to so many people here like myself. :-)

    16. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron YAY I get to play this on Steam so all my friends know when they can join my game! WOOT I so love Steam :D

    17. Creator Bil Irving on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron: I'm trying to help you, yes! :)
      .
      BBL. Breakfast time. Happy jontying folks.

    18. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Dave exactly. Anyway lets not go on with the merits or otherwise of Steam. :-) We know Frontier have SEVERAL delivery platforms available. :-) When I look at a box and sees "Steam required" I put it on the shelf. I vote with my wallet!

    19. Creator Stephen Usher on December 16, 2012

      @Charlie, Maybe an Pimp-My-Cobra pledge level where you can have a Cobra MkIII with low-riding engines, farting exhausts and blue LED lights on the window washers and underneath.. oh and a sound system you can hear three systems away thumping. Maybe that the £10000 level, most of that for the amplifier.

      Of course, with all that extra mass and the de-tuning effect of the exhaust ports, the speed would be reduced to a crawl.

    20. Creator Dave Hooper on December 16, 2012

      I'm another that hates steam. Ive bought the game so let me play it. But for some games steam decides to download several gig before I can start. If my internet is broken I can't play. If steam wants me to download an update I can't play. I have to start steam and go through the pants interface before I can launch my game etc. etc.

      I can see a single benefit in it other than saving games developers a bit of time in writing some patch downloading code to the game.

    21. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Bill You just want me to catch up with Lars don't you ?

    22. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari Sorry I can't find it but it was mentioned that there are multiple ways of distributing ED and I know Steam is NOT the ONLY way....which explains why I am here so all I know is it won't be the ONLY way which made me happy and I am sure it will make you happy to and that is what matters :-) that we are all happy.

    23. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      Life calls, catch up later...

    24. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      Steams pricing is a pain in the butt but then again when isn't it a pair of Nike in H'America is completely different to that in the UK and in Aus even after exchange rates.

    25. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @Bil Poor @Styggron He was having such a nice day... ;-)

    26. Creator Bil Irving on December 16, 2012

      @Eric: It's a sport... wind up Styggron. Don't tell him though, it might not catch on otherwise. :)
      .
      Ah... oops.
      .
      :)

    27. Creator Hektor on December 16, 2012

      The problem is, unless we get a lot more backers soon, we may have to be forced to increase our pledges.

    28. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @David I have to agree. If we lose all the smaller pledges we'll still go under. We need everyone, and negativity doesn't help because gamers think, "I don't want to part of *that* community, I'll go play Star Citizen instead."

    29. Creator Charlie on December 16, 2012

      I think we should add more to the £40 pledge to get most people to double their pledges. How about starting the game with a Cobra MKIV?

    30. Creator Stephen Usher on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron, my experience with Steam has been the opposite, thankfully, and I've never not been able to play a game obtained with it because the network has not been working.

      Still, each to their own. I can certainly see your view and respect it totally.

      (What gets me are games sold on Steam which then require other company's malware DRM to be loaded, such as Windows Live, before I can play the game. Steam is at least unintrusive.)

    31. Creator Kim Håland on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron, i totaly agree, and steam per se not alowed to lock the licences on pesons account here in EU,
      we have a law where we can remove a licence and sell it, but steam is not alowing us to do that, so if i remember Steam is looked at lawers in the eu system.

    32. Creator Eric on December 16, 2012

      @Bil Irving

      NO NO NO!!! Now you have done it! ;)

    33. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @T James :-)

    34. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      I've never understood people need to resell stuff they buy. If i buy something it's because I like it I do not want to sell it off afterwords. Oh and on that front Steam does offer a means of selling your bought games in a way you can gift them in exchange for other games on steam that other people own so it's like a trade.

    35. Creator David Law on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari - I agree that we need to help move this along, but your comment is unfair on those that have not pledged £90 (personally I have pledged a lot higher). It is Xmas and many people do not have the money to spare. Every contribution large and small should be appreciated and welcomed with equal appreciation.

    36. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Bill I just explained it.

    37. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @Bil For government, yes, but I worked in the NHS and there's no need to sign the official secrets act, just keeping patient confidentiality as part of your standard contract...

    38. Creator Bil Irving on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron: Just curious, what's your problem with Steam exactly?

    39. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Charlie I have doubled my original pledge and I am still Jontying

    40. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @Cristari Not everyone can afford it though and the cheaper tiers allow people to still enjoy the game and support the title. :-)

    41. Creator Bil Irving on December 16, 2012

      @Graeme: I presume you were a chef for a government department? From what I've heard, anyone who works for the government (including things like the NHS and Post Office) have to sign the official secrets act! :-/

    42. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron OK, with experiences like that I can see why you'd want to pull out their kidneys with a blunt rusty spoon... :-/

    43. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      @Charlie I've been saying this for a while. If everyone that pledged under £90 moved their pledge to £90 we would instantly make over £1m. It's always the cheep seats that spoil the party!

    44. Creator Styggron on December 16, 2012

      @T James the list is long very long I don't want to bore everyone here but just very quickly first it is DRM, second extremely bad experiences from it, you can't transfer licenses I can't resell if I want rid of it like I can with a physical copy, prices are a joke...why is a title in the US 80% cheaper than what it is to Australia all for a DOWNLOAD. Sorry I hate Steam I don;'t want it on my system whatsoever. Friends had skyrim and steam insisted on downloading GIGS of data despite the fact they had the pyysical DVD there......and more and more and more and more..............sorry I know people like it but I won't tolerate it at all. :-)

    45. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @Charlie Great plan, although I know many who have "Jontied" (jumped up) their pledges already... but to anyone reading, please do!

    46. Creator Bil Irving on December 16, 2012

      @Graeme: saw that a few days ago. You could view it as a negative comment, another way to view it is a call to arms.

    47. Creator Charlie on December 16, 2012

      If everybody who has already pledged doubled their pledge we would be there already. Time to start the 'make mine a double campaign'. Or better still convince a friend to pledge.....

    48. Creator Stephen Usher on December 16, 2012

      @Graeme I think that's a fare and reasonable assessment of the situation.

      Remember, the "98% of Kickstarters projects which reach 60% get funded" pseudo-statistic comes from the USA, which has a larger population with potentially higher spare cash to give away and the ability to pay with PayPal. Also, most Kickstarter projects have goals an order of magnitude less that ED's.

      It seems that from the small sample so far the UK's Kickstarters' experience does not follow the US based ones and hence we should not extrapolate directly from them.

    49. Creator Cristari on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron I'm not suggesting it as the only platform but your hate for Steam is your choice I personally love it I hate their server integration though. The fact that I can get an overlay with any game on it and talk to my friends while playing is awesome but I do hate their servers with a passion.

    50. Creator T. James on December 16, 2012

      @Styggron Quite a few people do, but why? I've never had any problems with it...
