And the thing is, it's "all of us". All of us have some sort of retirement account at the very least. So it should be a no brainer.Scorchien said:People need to learn and educate thenselves on this subject ..So tried of that type of post ..Sovrath said:fine, I'll just, um, yeah ...

Well, there's the Bethesda store that has a variety of shirts, jackets, a cap, behind the scenes book, etc, and there's the Season pass that will have 3 dlc's included.Asheram said:

True and that wasn't the point I wanted to make. I wanted to use it as an analogy to having a large variety of products before you and you need to be smart about what is worth it or not.MadFrenchie said:I don't remember when I ever saw Wal-Mart or Target market or sell unfinished products...
But remember, development doesn't exactly work that way. They look at what's needed and say "ok, x amount will go toward this, x amount will go toward that, x amount will go towards "the other thing".Xingbairong said:

Btw what I meant is what @Zuljan mentioned. No one is arguing if good music matters in a game(movie or anything else for that matter) or not, rather that at this point in the development that chunk of money(I assume it's a chunk) can be spent on something else.
A while back another development company had hired if I"m not mistaken a guy to edit videos for youtube for $80k a year and the quality was such that on upwork you can find someone to do the same for $500/month, of course back then I got hit with the how that's taking job overseas and whatnot as if we are talking about the government instead of game development and people missing the fact that those that are supporting the kickstarter probably don't care about.
