Not sure how many people still visit here from the old old old forums from when we were Freelancer, but for those that do this should be damn interesting to you all :D

Chris Roberts (the man behind Wing Commander, Privateer and Freelancer) set a goal for half a million for his newest game and received over 8 MILLION for the development :D

Yep.  I got in on that.  Can't wait to play it.  The actual campaign was looking for about $4 million, they raised the 8 million between their kickstarter and through their website.

I believe it's up to 33 million now. Definitely going to be great and with that much bonus funding it might even be the best one yet.

I've got a gaming computer I'm working on in my spare time (just need a new screen and hard drives. It was a 2 year old gaming laptop that was in a car accident I scored for $60 :P I'm already running it thru a regular monitor. Just need it's own screen replaced) that should be ready by the time Wasteland 2 comes out so it should handle that one as well. Really excited about it coming out.
