Well it was. Just not like this, and Blizzard never lied about the final product.

But the thing is that those people weren't Blizzard fans. They were just Blizzard hatters.

Well those Blizzard hatters have probably bought all of their games over the years and will likely preorder the Diablo 3 expansion the day it gets announced.

Say what you want about STEAM, but they are all about customer loyalty. I'll bet you Gabe's lawyers have a clause in their contracts about abusing Valve's service for fraudulent business practices. I hope they sue the developers off the face of the planet for the lols. That will be a nice reminder to all the other cash-grabbing @#$%s out there. Crucified, in the legal sense ;)

I'm curious about the refunds as well. The developers told everyone who wanted a refund to go through Steam, so wondering if Steam is going to end up suing them for all the refunds they issued. With how shady these people sound I doubt they'll just give the money back.

Think this is the first time I've actively wanted to see a indie company fail, and fail hard.

If I was a betting man I'd wager that this won't be back on Steam without a serious overall of the mechanics and transactions in the game.

I feel bad for those who got involved with the Kickstarter of this. I took one look at it and instantly thought of it as an attempt to rip off Day Z and to a lesser extent The Dead Linger.

Hope this continues to go down in flames.

This may be one of many Kickstarters that was just a cash grab. It's a risky thing investing your money in an unknown dev. I usually stick to the ones that have history (like Double Fine and the In Exile dudes).

Was it a kickstarter? I thought it was supposed to be a free to play game.

Kickstarters are the final fulfillment of the great PT Barnum's theory that there is a sucker born every minute.

The lead on this project has a history and it's called Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing

I believe it did or at one point they were talking about it. I remember taking a look at it right after it was announced and just didn't like what I saw.

Hah! War Z also ripped images from the Walking Dead.

What a foul little company they are turning out to be.

I thought the ultimate realization of that was the lottery, aka the stoopid tax.

That last Kotaku article was pretty funny, in a "comedy of errors" kind of way. What I'd like to know is, where is this crazy dev actually getting all these statistics? "93% of our players like the game", "30% of our players never even heard of DayZ"...really?

85% of statistics are made up on the spot

It never changes.

Shamelessly (possibly mis)quoted from Talladega Nights.

"85% of statistics are made up on the spot"

Psssh...77.9% of all people know that.

There are a few, but this crop of D3 hatters on the D3 forums won't. Some of them actually believe that always online DRM is evil.

Oh my, it would appear that Hammerpoint Games has reached it: The Pinnacle of Douchedom.

Can't tell if serious.

Looks like they took the images and modified them a bit.
