IncGamers Vidcast

How do you run a successful Kickstarter? Our podcast aims to find out, as we assess the contrasting fortunes of Gas Powered Games’ cancelled Wildman campaign and the so-close-we-can-pretty-much-call-it success of Dreamfall Chapters. In the process, Tim embarks on some impromptu therapy sessions.

Outside of Kickstarter, the traditional publishing models rumble on in much the same fashion. Ubisoft confirms a new Assassin’s Creed (to the surprise of no-one,) Warner Bros. hints at a new Batman Arkham Something game and Blizzard claims to be “aggressively” supporting Diablo 3. Paul has his doubts about that latter one.

Between us this week we’ve been playing The Showdown Effect, Special Forces: Team X and more Path of Exile.

PR blunder of the week goes either to EA (for sending a super-late boxed copy of Dead Space 3 … with an Origin code inside,) or to SEGA for failing to provide any Aliens: Colonial Marines code at all. Although given the game’s reception, maybe that was a blessing in disguise.

Listen or view the podcast below, or head to iTunes for some recent episodes and to discover why one reviewer has (accurately) dubbed us “a trio of bitter-sounding british men.”

    Paul said it best “Here we have a developer sitting on the biggest video game franchises of all time, not listening to what people what, complete head in the sand.” And precisely their corporate kiddie-oriented PR is completely misguided, they’re aiming for the wrong crowd if aiming anything at all. They’ve made some great strides in features such as Monster Power and Paragon, lots of game bug and server lag fixes, new crafting recipes, and dueling with the latest 1.07 patch. These things are great, but it’s sort of taking cough drops to cure the flu. You lose the cough, but those little things (headache, restroom, runny nose, etc.) still linger and irk you over time.

    I agree with Tim, that Blizzard franchise fans are very vocal about our opinions and ideals. We’re very vocal because we’re very passionate about the (Diablo) franchise and want to see it succeed. So sometimes I need to look at the bright side of things too.

    Thanks for the great video.
