Hey! You're still hanging around here instead of signing up at the NEW DAF, huh? Well, good for me, especially if you're sitting on some dispoable income and happen to like a little art collecting. I'm selling off some of my art in the form of random pencil or ink tree sketches over at fiverr.com and yes, you should maybe think about taking a peek over there and perhaps buying one. Or two. No pressure at all, folks. Hey, everyone needs a little art in their lives, that's for sure!

For me, FASA's Shadowrun was (and is) one of the great gaming experiences from the 90's back on the Super Nintendo and Genesis (I never played the tabletop games at all, my loss, I know) and now it's coming back as a Kickstarter project. Even better, it's a single player RPG, not some shooter, MMO or co-op focused game that goes far away from what the originals were. Hmmm... this crowdfunding thing is getting out of hand... but in an extremely good way. Still, I can see bigger publishers wanting to muscle in on things even if Kickstarter won't let them. How so? Well, I can't imagine some of the more important publishers today NOT being a bit ticked off that people are putting up MAJOR money to get smaller indie projects done while ignoring quite a lot of AAA titles for any number of reasons. My only problem with all this is the lack of retail versions of most of these Kickstarter games, or at least the promise of budget-priced disc versions that don't come with a bunch of swag some have no use for. One of these days I really HOPE someone puts out a few of these titles on something a lot more permanent than an invisible download...
