@oboli: do you still have the leningrad cowboys beer in finland or has that gimmick ceased to be a long time ago? Kippis!


I haven't seen that beer around for years, but maybe some old, abandoned gas station in the middle of the Lapland has it in shelves.. I don't know. I want to believe. Razz

And I forgot, Kippis!! :cheers:

Yep that WASTE thing. Bad name to give to a fan-submitted thing btw. Guess only a bit better than "Recycle Bin" lol.

They will be trying very hard to make this game awesome. And we'll be there to help. We're gonna reorganize the forum a bit soonish and probably even open a Space Hulk section, just because that's so tied to JA:F now and looks like a cool game.

And I'll all over them to get the dev forum going. And looking better than what they have now.

Don't remind me of that. I worked for Wargaming for a year as translator. Nothing is worse than that lol. But the WASTE submissions are payed I think. Not much, but it's a cool thing.

I also trust FC but with most of us hardcore fans having Alpha access we are in a good position to control them^^


Yeah, the good thing about this Kickstarter is that while the amount of cash pledged might be somewhat underwhelming, a big number of us have been playing this series since the nineties and know exactly how the game should feel to be a proper Jagged Alliance game.

OTOH, if JA:F would have gotten more attention and cash from the casual mainstream gamers, opportunities for modders and hardcore fans to influence the outcome might have become scarcer.

But this also a double edged sword. Too many Alphas with divergent views on the "right" way can become cumbersome to manage and control.

They knoweth not fear until I start hammering them on the gun implementation...xD

Hah... glad to hear Jagex was paying well. Wargaming just made 100m euro profit this year and it's paying their CEO with 13m / year. But for translators they decided that paying 1/2 of the normal rates is cool. And when they shoved under our nose a contract with huge where the tank doesn't shine...

Such Ideas from the casual-Gamers are the reason why i am soooooooooooooooooo happy about, that the Pit's Modders have joined the Team, to protect us and FC from all these bad things.

PS: JayM you are right about Ice, he would not be a 3 month child. I'm sorry for that mistake. Razz

Yeah, I loved the design of the cans! Never tasted the beer itself, though.
And I don't actually know more than a couple of their songs. Maybe that's why I haven't tried the beer either.. Embarrassed

o.O

well we had to live in the shittiest of shitty colleges in Cambridge for the duration of the job and endure English food. I spent 1/3 of my salary before tax there on partying... but was still good. absolute freaks working there though for the most part. one fella was running around every day in full leather gear with a black leather trench coat while England endured the hottest summer in 100 years. another bloke ran around with a spikey dog collar around his neck. and then there was a Dutch guy who wore EVERY SINGLE DAY the exactly same clothes...

Wow I just went back and read my original rant to them in my first post... Except for the working demo (which they got next best through the diorama) they literally did everything else categorically to address my concerns. They stopped the pointless polls and began to exercise leadership with their vision. They got modders in as consultants. They stopped with the defensive part and kept emphasising the positive parts... If they got WASTE in they'll be FC 4: gdalf 0. Surprised that's pretty amazing for a two week turnaround

no worries, just kidding. a few people (including FC) claimed he was too young :S but there will be plenty of time to sort out who will be in and who won't.

hey shanga promised a party. I'm sitting here alone with a beer and no strippers and am spamming up the thread... (but then I don't have to work tomorrow^^)

That's exactly the trend I was waiting on before deciding to endorse them. It took about two weeks of jerking on the chain, but when I saw they're actually woken up and figured their "perfect KS" was a piece of crap I figured it's time to jump in and help. For the record, I liked them from day 1, indie studio going to KS was a nice idea... but life as a JA fan taught be to never trust a book by the cover or a dev by their PR.Smile

Hey, the first one I know from them! Sounds a lot better with the (red) orchestra than original one, imho.

I loved the "Olli" character in Silent Storm, even if he spoke "something similar to Finnish". Maybe the reason for my love is that my own first name is Olli.. Very Happy
We should have his kind of rough merc in JAF, indeed.

lol shanga - why does it not surprise me that you posted a gif of a hot chick that focuses first on her gun Very Happy

it was my first kickstarter so I might not be in the right position to say what FC could have done better, but due to my job I know a thing or two about PR and reaching out to people. they made a few mistakes but they were done because they were equally inexperienced with kickstarters and naive (don't mean it in a bad way). but they showed they wore their heart on their sleeves so that's why I was happy with what they did. and that's all that counts. my trust from day 3 (when I joined) seems to have paid off Smile

it's from a concert in 1993 in the middle of Helsinki with the 120 men Alexandrov Choir of the Soviet Army Surprised it's called Total Balalaika Show and should be available on torrents. they also did an album together - brilliant covers like led zeppelin, zz top and lots of other classics.

I had to laugh when I saw that avatar I have available here. I always use that picture in JA2 for my merc because it has a scarily accurate resemblance to my real self o.O

maybe not quite as handsome and my hair is a bit shorter now, but I actually like to wear white t-shirts to the horror of my gf as a fashion statement^^
