This week’s crowdfunding news was all about Crowfall. Seriously, we must’ve written about Crowfall like 76 times or something. In the end, the most relevant piece of Crowfall news is that the Kickstarter is over and it was a big success.

Oh, and we also checked in with Pathfinder, which put version six of its early access client out to backers on Thursday. The rest of our MMO crowdfunding news roundup is past the break.

My friends and I are thinking about taking The Repopulation out for a spin if it goes on sale on Steam again.

Where are these Crowfall ads? Curious if it’s personalised advertising because all I see are Newegg banners.

Does extensive Crowfall coverage has something to do with the banner on top of the page and some kind of advertising agreement? Nothing bad of course I’m cheering for the game myself.

The TAG links in the articles is starting to annoy me. It’s an abomination and should be killed off.

Neo’s Land hasn’t had a “round table discussion” in probably a year.
These were all done via Twitch with Markee Dragon, at the start, determining the name, style of play, etc. Even then it was only done with a handful of people on Skype, and maybe some input from chat.
