Firewood prices are going up too. I’ve got mine, but everything adjusts when the cost of one goes up.

With heating oil and gas prices doubling, its not surprising that people are turning more to firewood for heating thus driving demand . Plus the gasoline needed to cut and transport it is more expensive as well.

Cyberpunk 2077 launched a little over an hour ago with a goal of $100,000. It should hit that goal in the next 10 minutes or so. This is the slowest funding of any CMON project in years.

This is stumbling due to a wild $60 estimated shipping cost for US backers (more for other countries), and the recent botched estimate for Marvel Zombies where shipping estimates were off by 50-100%.

I'm mildly interested in this as it appears to be based on Lang's underrated Godfather game, but I would never back this. $170 total is outrageous when it likely won't tear through stretch goals. This could be the beginning of a massive shift at CMON. I'd hesitate to say the beginning of the end as they bring in more revenue through retail than Kickstarter, but something will have to change after this. Their model doesn't work without a ton of stretch goals adding value.

Looks more like Cyberpunk 2077: Blood Feud in New York.

That game looks cool, but I had thought the Godfather game seemed boring. It clearly has some significant changes, but for that price.... if anything I'll wait for retail.

CMON may make more revenue thru retail, but without that sweet interest up front free money from KS the product likely won’t make it to retail .

It might also be related to the fact that it's an adaptation of the now infamous CD Projekt Red game. I mean, what next, a Fallout 76 board game?

One week left for The Believer 's KS. I bought my first issue in 2006 - there's a standout article in there about the Codex Seraphinianus that I still share with folks - and it's been a link to unique ideas and cultural ephemera outside of my usual nerd oeuvre for the better part of my adult life.

Ah, well: The Codex . A stunning feat of imagination that reminds me of something like Gygax's early bestiaries, Warangel or even Cave Evil. Worth a look.
