While Stephen Buonocore of Stronghold Games calls me, ‘The Mean Man of Podcasting’, Mr. Buonocore has yet to elevate me to the level of of Nemesis. I must try harder. 

On the other hand I've heard him refer to Erik Dewey “The Cool Cat of Gaming”, which seems rather unfair.  But sadly, if you've met either Erik or myself, you are likely to agree with Stephen.

What do you think about Kickstarter and the tricks used to encourage sponsorship? Is it a great way to build community and enthusiasm for a title, or does the whole thing amount to nothing more than a pile of cheap tricks used to separate the gullible from their lucre?
