    Ya know, in the grand scheme of things, you're not too terribly quiet yourself... you're in 4th place if I recall. =)

    Listening to Guppy is like listening to Sarah McLachlan sing The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonight by REM.


    I kid... maybe.

    Pfft yeh, you were a top poster long before your title, nice try buddy. =)

    In fact, I can mathematically argue that you're posting LESS since becoming a dev ('cause I just ran some numbers).

    Minor troll on my part. But just imagine her voice singing the chorus of that song at her normal singing speed? It's be a 40 minute song.

    You seem stuck on this idea that 7DtD needs to be like a Bethesda game. Why? Doing everything that Fallout does, plus everything Minecraft and The Walking Dead do, wouldn't just be derivative: it'd be a mess.

    There are other kinds of games out there, and in some of them a main storyline is not important or even expected. That's okay. Sandbox games in particular can work - can be considered complete - with or without them. Sure, I think adding story could enrich the game. But to insist it's requisite is to ignore the possibility of a different kind of game.

    Bottom line is we're getting more vehicles, we're getting quests, we're getting bandits, we're getting a story, so what's the rush?

    If they bust those out too soon, maybe we don't get a boat, or horses, or conversation script access, or (insert thing we'll likely get but is not on the official list here).

Then again they might do like Minecraft and add the rest of the story afterwards.
    Hmm interesting. I have Minecraft. I just started it. I dont SEE a story mode? Did i do it wrong?

    OHHH you mean the SEPERATE game called Story Mode. Yeah. That wasn't in the Kickstarter soooo it really doesn't apply. Nowhere in Minecraft do i see a story mode option so again, theory nuked.

    Damn it Roland was right. You ARE baiting hooks. Let me pull this one out. Sorry Roland.
