Seeing Wasteland 2 for 60 bucks and its only for early access.... That game should be 20 bucks MAX.
We're Americans! We don't quit just because we're wrong.
We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.

Its going down for release. Its that expensive because that was the kickstarter tier where early access was allowed. If you want it cheaper, have some patience. This early access is only for the fans that want to support the game and not just buy the game.

yeah, they're not going to shoot their backers in the foot by providing access for cheaper than the people who funded the whole game to begin with.
PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy.

If you contributed to the Kickstarter you got a preorder for as low as $15.

The lead guys working on this game (and maybe a lot of the other workers) are industry veterans who have worked on non-indie games since the '80s.

If it's too much money... don't buy it.
Perfection. Where everyone fails.
If you expect nothing you can be happy for everything.

The worst thing to come out of crowd-sourced funding:

Renaming "beta" to "early-access", then charging the largest fans of your core-audience an exorbitant amount of money to troubleshoot and beta-test their game.

Why is any anybody surprised? Indie devs are just as greedy as the multi-billion dollar publishers the internet seem to hate.

1/10, because I appreciate a good sense of entitlement.

The game looks ugly as hell, I've seen better looking games in flash then whatever the hell engine wasteland is using, 20 bucks is already stretching it.
