Guns, Money, Explosives, And Hoes

When I thought the FPS beat down was going to be the highlight of this video, I was wrong:

Oh Lawd!  Rap! Dual brand Deagles! A chicken on his crotch? wtf? haha it gets worse though:

The point of the video was to promote a Kickstarter campaign for a FPS Russia video game.  I can’t say I was at all optimistic, and when I clicked the link my biggest fears came true.  It looks lame as hell… like some sort of weak-ass Contra knockoff.  Not cool. FPS Corporate gonna keep pimpin corporations as long as it pays.

As I’m writing this post I see he has already raised $6354 out of the $51377 goal.  People seem more than willing to throw money at this guy, so I’m sure that $51k goal will be far surpassed.  Further down on the Kickstarter campaign page it details what he will spend the money on if the campaign reaches different levels above the original goal.

Thoughts?  Are you going to throw $10 his way?

i like this blog but its kind of lame how much shit fps russia gets. clearly he isnt going for the same audience that the more serious enthusiasts are after, but he attracts a great following and can draw more shooters through his videos. yeah his accent is fake and some videos get cheesey but he gets people to watch his videos, and some to complain about them. his video game is going to be a lame app on phones that hes taking donations for to get running, and people are paying for it. despite his russian enthusiasm, what a great american making entertaining gun videos for a living.. true entrepreneurship

As much as I find ‘ol Russia for some of the entertainment value (he gets to shot shit that is hiiiiiighly illegal here in Swedun), no he will not get 10$. As a (also) a Videogamer, I reserve my bucks for quality games, not Contra ripoffs..

F(irst) P(erson) S(hooter) Russia makes a game and it is a side-scrolling platformer?! That’s what I found ridiculous.

As a professional software developer / web developer I see no reason why a game of that caliber should costs $51k to make. I could make that shit in two weeks.

Sounds like you need to do that, and show him up. Call it FPS America or something!

Code wise I see your point however you still need a producer, an artist, an animator, a sound tech, an online guy, buy and maintain a server for in-app purchases… Then debug comes! :p

After that Apple (or Google) takes 30% of your profits.

They could just do what every other hack studio has been doing and just outsource it overseas for super cheap.

“… Are you going to throw $10 his way?”

Well… no.

The chicken part was actually really funny! But I am not going to support his video game.

Reply

Church November 23, 2012 at 06:40 pm

Um… Also, he has 213 people backing his video game, and $11,000 donated… So the average donation has been $50. What the fuck?

2 have pledged at least $1k. Crazy.

I don’t understand why he doesn’t just find a small team to make a first person shooter in Unity where all you do is shoot targets loaded tannerite and hear him say “Have nice day.”

I would never give FPSFakeRussia a dime.

I would give FPSNotReallyRussian $10 to go to demolitions school to learn how to not blow up his cameraman… Aside from that, he can twist.
