Double Fine Taken To Task By Fans For 'Spacebase DF-9' Release Plans

September 22, 2014 - GamePolitics Staff

Over the weekend Double Fine took some heat from fans after it announced that it was releasing version 1.0 of Spacebase DF-9 next month, and effectively killing the benefits of those who bought the game through Steam Early Access.

Those who bought the game via Early Access were not pleased with this news because - as they see it - the game has gone from an early alpha state into a full blown release without a beta period.

Andrew EisenIt may well be. What evidence have you seen that Capybara donated prior to the video's release?05/05/2015 - 2:18pm
Wonderkarpit is still a fact. first game she gushes over paid her. i wont say they paid her for the advert. but that fact still stands05/05/2015 - 2:16pm
Andrew EisenTrue or not, that does not change the arguments she makes in her video.05/05/2015 - 2:12pm
Wonderkarptheres also the fact the the games devs donated to femfreq and here she is advertising their game05/05/2015 - 2:10pm
Andrew EisenAnother interesting factoid, Sarkeesian does drop in a mention of Samus in that video.05/05/2015 - 2:08pm
Andrew EisenAnd for whatever it's worth to you, McIntosh only produced that video. It was written by Sarkeesian and Carolyn Petit.05/05/2015 - 2:07pm
Andrew EisenI'm certainly willing to discuss them. But I can't discuss the video particulars with you if you haven't watched it.05/05/2015 - 2:00pm
Wonderkarpwell you guys report these videos frequently I figure you'd at least be willing to back them up.05/05/2015 - 1:59pm
Andrew EisenNo, it means I'm not bothering to summarize the arguments of a video you didn't watch but nevertheless feel qualified to denigrate. Shame on you.05/05/2015 - 1:56pm
WonderkarpThat means you got nothing. I'm not watching her videos anymore. Mcintosh disgusts me as a human being05/05/2015 - 1:54pm
Andrew EisenDude, seriously? Try actually watching Sarkeesian's video.05/05/2015 - 1:41pm
Wonderkarpsuch as? cause all I see is Duck Monster Face http://boingboing.global.ssl.fastly.net/uploads/default/73100/895f09b00b87aea9.png05/05/2015 - 1:39pm
Andrew EisenIf Q*bert was female, in some ways yes. But there's far more to the Scythian argument than a lack of gender identifiers.05/05/2015 - 1:37pm
Wonderkarpby that logic, Qbert would make a positive example of female representation.05/05/2015 - 1:31pm
Andrew EisenI disagree for the reasons, well, for the reasons Sarkeesian states in her video. Also, as she points out, the lack of specific gender identifiers is part of why she's a positive example of female representation in video games.05/05/2015 - 1:22pm
WonderkarpWell its about GD Time She presented a good Positive Female Character. Scythian is an awful example. a emotionless blob of pixels that I couldnt tell you was female without a guide. In comparison Samus out of suit made in the 80s is far more noticeable05/05/2015 - 1:18pm
Andrew EisenSarkeesian tossed us a change up with the Scythian but the next Positive Female Characters episode looks to cover BG&E's Jade! https://twitter.com/femfreq/status/59425534635858739305/05/2015 - 1:14pm
Andrew EisenFeminist Deck. Some names we recognize. I dig the art! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/322895958/a-feminist-deck05/05/2015 - 12:58pm
Andrew EisenCurious to see who readers would want in a debate, I read the first few dozen comments and there are almost NO suggestions for GamerGate reps to debate. Sarkeesian pops up a couple times but she's not a games journalist.05/05/2015 - 12:11pm
Andrew EisenI've had discussions with a whole bunch of folks who identify as GamerGaters and, with a handful of exceptions on Twitter and Youtube, they were all reasonably polite and civil.05/05/2015 - 12:06pm
