I did a bunch of reading On grimrock tonight.. STEAM only sales paid for the game in 2 days, no KICKSTART, just the guys trusting in thier abilities and taking a chance. I have mentioned this before, alot of the Kickstarter people have flopped over and over with their last games that they cant get anybody to back um.. (not all), so i do wonder what they will produce with 100% free riegn.. will the prove that the corprate enverment was thething that hampered them in the previuos games?. I was a bit suprised at alot fo the projects on it. MANY have had ZERO money put in, I wonder what that feels like to the guy who is praying for some cash for his hard work and 30 days later no a singel buck has been put in..
Another suprisng note.. Grimrock.. Steam forums, Blues News, Shack News, Anandtech.. almost ZERO (read that again) ZERO negative comments.. thats UNHEARD of on the NET! Heck evne the best selling games have thier haters.. hit up BF3/COD forums .. Dont get me wong.. Im sure more will compalin as time goes on... but its really getting hte love from the gameing crowd right now. Its funny to read some posts who Know its a game design from the past but who never played it. I guess in my mind everybody played a bardstale, M&M, Wizardry, Ultima, DM game at some time... Being old I sometime forget just how old those games are.
Oh and Matt as a Metal head.. (dont like metallica myself) you do know they actually sold better when they went a bit more mainstream (black album) and that kick started sales of the older back cataloge (master of puppets, Kill um all) Master Of Puppets did sell well.. but after the Black albumn came out they actually sold more riding its wave then when it was originaly released.
But you are almost 100% right in the fact Maiden hads never changed.. again not a band I care much for.. but listen to anything from 82-94 ( the Bruce years) you could swap any song on any album and never know when or what year it was made. X-Factor and Virtual X in the late 90's was a fall back on the "hot" idustrail sound (NIN, TOOL) and was almost considered "dark" for maiden which is strange from the band who uses an undead rocker for its mascot :) Brave new world was close to a return to form.. but one has to admit the biggest hit on it "wicker man" is toned down and slower then the average Iron Maiden rocker. As for after that.. i dont own anything after Brave New World.. as i say, not a Huge fan.. not even a small fan.. I enjoy the music.. and consider myslef a bit of a Metal head (i have over 2000 CD's from the 80's ot the late 90's of METAL!!!! i was a huge Metal Music fan).. As for Maiden.. my pick for thier best song would be Can I play With Madness, it sounds like it came from Bruces first Solo album not Maiden, maybe thats why i like it so much :) (and if you dont have Bruces First Solo CD Tattoed Millionair, GET IT... its not Maiden but its dang good music (not the standrds most would pick.. Trooper, Number of the beast,or RUn to the hills, 2 minutes) Oh one funny fact.. Iron Maidens Orginal name? Smiler kinda happy for a metal band.. guess thats why they didnt keep it.
Sorry for the way off track stuff.. HUGE Metal music fan.. who thinks he knows somthing (and is quite often wrong, and when it come to music its not fact, but opinion on much of it). I love playing video games, but would give them up if i had to pick them or music... as for metal.. Judas Preist from 74 to 86 (yes I really liked Turbo... so all you hardcore priest fans can call me crazy for likeing the Synthizer album) FEVER being my favorite song by them.
ok way off track,, good podcast.
