    Why don't they just focus on the game and forget the merchandising cheese.

    These are kickstarter backer rewards, I think, so some obligation to deliver them concurrently with the game development

    How much time (realitstically) is going to be taken away from game development because of this? J!NX are the ones who are designing the clothes, correct? What time will be spent on this from the Wasteland 2 crew?

    Not just Kickstarter rewards, I remember Brian Fargo saying they'd have a way for people to buy Wasteland 2 merchandise.

    Well, why not. If it gives them additional money. I personally won't buy there though, as everything looks quite expensive.

    Expensive..yes...quality of clothes..we shall see.

    If anyone DOES buy any of their (JINX) clothes, I'd like for someone to post a pic with the tag (collar) exposed as to see where it's manufactured.

    Merchandising means extra capital, for one, which can be put toward current and future projects. For another, on what planet does merchandising take time away from the people doing development on the game? Mr. Fargo might have to exchange a few emails with J!NX, but that's about it.

    Yeah, it's not like the programmers will be working in a sweatshop until their hands fall off. I own a couple of Jinx shirts and they're generally pretty decent quality.

    Ah that reminds me of the awesome Fallout: New Vegas T-Shirt Bethesda sent for me before the release of the game. It went to the then IGN headquarters (now the building of the new MySpace) for shipping, but someone stole it, as another one for a guy that worked with me. Yep. Oh well...

    The Brian Fargo video on that site is brilliant.

    Don't care much for gama paraphernalia, but as someone in this thread already pointed out: regard it as extra funding.

    "There was a Fallout one and two?"

    That scene is fucking classic. I always laugh when I watch it.
