Why does everything need a kickstarter these days?
Don't get me wrong, I'm not some luddite. I work at a telecommunications company. I get what it does and why it's good for small (and even big) companies looking to get ventures off of the ground. I can even admit that it is uniquely well suited to miniature games, the investors of which are what might charitably be called...fickle.
It just seems like every new thing I see these days is not being sold, it's some exclusive reward for the gladiator level bid on some kickstarter goal that I am otherwise completely uninterested in.
I don't know what got into me on this one. I was looking at a news site, and every mentioned release for something like two or three pages was a kickstarter thing. Do no companies other than Games Workshop have new releases outside of this? I'm exaggerating a little here, but only a little.
Once more, with feeling, I don't think it's bad, I just think it's getting out of hand.
