…and it’s not enough for me to get a copy of the game when it comes out.
IT’S NOT ENOUGH FOR ME TO GET A COPY OF THE GAME!!
I’m not mad, understand. Not even disappointed, really, more confused. But I have to pay $2 more to even receive Torment: Tides of Numenera. Which, again, I was one of 85,000 to crowdsource.
Wierd. (“Wierd” is how the weird spell weird.)
Is this indignity really necessary to the game’s success? Two times eighty-five thousand is…hang on, I’ll get it…
Eighty-five thousand plus eighty-five thousand! (“Anything multiplied, I can add better, I can add better much better than you!”)
But seriously, this was as stupid as 21st Century politics. Had they not done this, I would have gladly shelled out the requested $27 more dollars to get some bonuses including beta tester. I’ve never been a beta tester before. Well, except for my own recipes of course.
Sigh. People. Can’t kill them, can’t…hey, wait! You can totally kill them! THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING!
OTOH, I regret nothing. Planescape: Torment remains one of the greatest PC games ever. And it’s ancient. In another year it will be old enough to get its own driver’s license. So of course I wanted to be a part of a sequel…back when I had a job and money.
But I was a ground-floor financial backer and it wasn’t even enough to get one single copy of the dadgum game. Not that I’m mad! Just look at me:
I’m a genuine patron of the arts, yet I feel like a nobody. Maybe I should write a parody song set, set to Randy Travis’s “Shameless”.
“I’m Nameless, Nameless as a man can be…”
