    Kickstarter is the double-edge sword. Some times developers put just rediciolus screatch goals. And Mighty no 9 is great example of that. 3.3kk for nextgen consols and no 3ds or vita. I understand that Mega Man creator is the BIG name, but still developers should stay closely to reallity and not play on gamers nostalgic feelings.

    Yeah I doubt that most of these projects will reach an adequate amount of funding for them to be released on consoles. What most of these guys should have done instead is what developers of Star Citizen are doing and crowd fund their projects.

    Anyways a big project I would love to see being crowd funded is Shenmue 3.

    I didn't read the article, but based off of the title I agree completely. I like how gamers or individuals can contribute to something they like. I have a few that I already contributed to based on my idea to what is good or potentially good. The one thing I hate though is that some games, that have a lot of potential seem to get burried because the production team maybe a little over zealous...one example, which I wish the issue did not occur, is with GPG Wildman. I thought this game had a lot of potential.

    But then you run into gems like this:

    The gaming industry doesn't NEED kickstarter. But it does have it whether you want it or not.

    And as mentioned it has both pros and cons.

    Why did you not read this article, for feedback on potential new articles to write.

    A big project for me that I would love to see kickstarted would probably be getaway and agency which I know they gave up on
