I canceled my Akaneiro Kickstarter Pledge and got this:
"Former Backer, Potential Future Backer or Person we’ve Hired Ninjas to Hunt,
We saw you canceled your pledge and we’d like to know why. Perhaps you spent all your money on the latest piece of evil from Activision or Electronic Arts? Or found out you have another illegitimate child running around the Kentucky countryside. Perhaps your Porsche needs new Perelli’s? Or your dog needs braces? In case any of these more personal issues are the reason, feel free to keep that info to yourself and move along. We understand. And we don’t need to know the details. Unless those details are really juicy, in which case…
On the other hand, if it’s something we did, let us know! Were our updates devoid of useful info? Did the reward tier structure cause confusion and rage? Perhaps you think the game just sucks? Maybe the requests for new and unique items are overwhelming; we’ve done our best to accommodate where possible by pulling Alice: Madness Returns goodies out of the closet but I wonder if this has diluted the focus on Akaneiro? Or was it something else? Body odor? Spinach between my teeth?
Let us know!
Insert Witty Salutation Here,
And I answered this (if you care):
at first it was definitely spinach between your teeth. The other thing is, that I canceled it just for..I dont know. To show this game to my girl, asking her if she wants to play it with me and maybe to spend moneyzzz again. But well...listen mate:
In the last 3 weeks I used my new Nexus 7 like hell. I downloaded a lot of different stuff like..useful apps and OFC as hardcore gamer..games. Somehow I dont like the F2P model. And yes I spent money on some games. It tells you to be nice, but in the end you have to pay a lot and get fucked up by the devs/pubs. Its not that I dont want to pay, but..well, I have the same worse feeling I had when I played Diablo 3 and the shitty auction house was there. The devs had the power to regulate what is dropping and when items are dropping. And when you got shitty items, you went into the Real-Money Action House and bought stuff. I mean you say "evil from Acti or EA". Sure that you will never get there? We have politicians here in Germany who sat in the dirt for their ideals, where activists in their young ages. And now they are fat, rich and dont even fucking care about their ppl and old ideals when they sit in their big cars. What I want to say is, I would spend some money in seconds, when I would be sure that I dont have to pay the same amount like in a full price game or a mmo-subbed game, where I know what content and how much of it I can expect for my money. What do you expect from the F2P system? How much I have to spend in the game to get everything or at least a good experience? "Its the future." The ass my future.
The other thing is...you have the most fucked up confusing pledge system EVEEEERRRRR.
Mate...how can it be: "previous tiers are not included", "will be not included in following tiers",
"this tier will be only included in the next tier when you see a tire in a tire on the last tier", "the tier 3 armor is broken", "checking the tires makes me tired". This shit is confusing. ANd thefuck, I missed the japanese Alice Artbook ffs. Now I haz sad ;((((
Anyway, I will give Akaneiro a chance and pledge again and hope that this game succeeds and that all ppl have fun. And it would be nice to see a single-player game on consoles again. I liked Alice 1 + 2, Scrapland and Bad Day L.A.
Cheers and good luck you crazy fucker!
P.S: How does the Alice: MR "Phantom City" Poster look like?
