At the risk of upsetting the more sensitive reader(s) of this thread, I'll mention that the user reviews are starting to come in on metacritic and they're actually close to the critic reviews coming with both averaging in the 40's.

It definitely appeals to a narrower audience than the first. I, personally, can't wait for the sequel's sequel.

My kids enjoyed it.

Then again my son will watch just about anything with a monster in it and call it a masterpiece, so he may be a bit biased.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

It's missing Guilliermo Del Toro because he was making a movie about a chick who loves fish sticks.

Del Toro does big budget movies alternating with other stuff, and for every Devils Backbone there's a Hellboy. He puts a lot of love into his big budget stuff that another director might not.

I'd argue that he made the right choice given the Oscar he just got for Dances with Mermen.

Grinding Nemo is a fantastic film. But it's not the lack of Del Toro but it's moreso a lack of monster punching I'm thinking of. Like, actual punching. All the whips/swords/whatever are fun, but the whole point of punching the monsters was so that they didn't get the poisonous blood everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but like a gentleman said on Twitter a while back, I'm more invested in movies where a dinner party has to go right than ones where they have to save the world.

I enjoyed the first and second film. They feel slightly different, but I enjoyed them. I just wished it was a little longer to add a bit more development to it, but it definitely got me excited for the Drone Kaiju... which incidently is what is being funded at the moment...



Since the latest info isn't in the thread:

There's a new playthrough video with Geek and Sundry:



There's a new development video with Beasts of War:



A bunch of new models have been made available, Studio Giraldez posted some photos of unpainted resin masters and there's a cool new exclusive art piece being added to pledges as well.

Also, the All-in pledge got released. Comes with a tonne of stuff. Think it's something like £400 worth of awesome minis for £245 now? There's a size comp shot floating around on the internet as well.

Loads of cool attachments to look at.

How much are they selling the kanji drone for? That I would buy at retail, as well as a Mutavore mini.

Looks like final goals are November Ajax (unlocked), Valor Omega, Titan Redeemer and a free Scrapper for everyone.

Gotta say this is a first for me in watching campaigns. This campaign is down almost 100 backers compared with two weeks ago but has had solid increasing funding totals despite that. I'm guessing alot of folks are switching to the all in pledge or alternately bugging out early. Regardless, good to see it didn't stall after the mediocre reception of the movie.

It's been an odd kickstarter, there has defiantly been a lot of EB backers dropping out as the campaign went on. However it's been out paced by people bumping up to the all in level.

The game looks fun to play, and the models look good so I'm still in. There's still a bunch of extra jaegers and kaiju they could do, so if it sells well at retail we could see more in the future.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

Saw the film.

I'd say on par with the first one. In that I'd give it a solid 65-70% if I had to rate it. So, entertaining but nothing special. Was happy to see Jaegers in daylight, surprised I didn't hate Boyega (normally don't like him that much), etc. As a movie...pretty bad, as expected. Maybe not Transformers/Bay bad, but just lazy story, awful exposition (I mean, some of the worst I've seen in a film). But for a couple hours of stompy robots, not bad.

I've still yet to see a proper modern mecha/robot movie deliver the goods. Probably never will.

I think this explains the KS. People who love it, love it because of the robots and the movies, and where individuals have dropped out I'd bet a bunch of retailers or distributors have stepped up to stock a product with name recognition.

I've heard that the 2nd wave of Pacific Rim Extinction has arrived. Anyone else gotten theirs?

I believe I was one of the first recipients. The paint quality is definitely better than wave 1. Cant wait for wave 3 in two years, and to never back a Riverhorse KS again!

I did not back the KS but I have all of W2 pre-ordered via online retail.

It’s hard to defend RH’s performance on this game but I have to stress that the game itself is just phenomenally good.

Given the last couple of years delivering a KS is almost a miracle.

I agree, but this KS was well and truly fethed before covid ever was a thing.

Is it really fethed if they delivered?

I haven't been following, so I'm not sure if there was any drama on this one, but 2-4 years is pretty standard delivery for a Kickstarter to be honest. The only exception are companies like CMON who already heave everything complete and are just using it as a preorder system to determine the size of their print run. Anything that isn't truly final going in has at minimum 2 years before reaching backers.

I think things are going well. Have waves 1 and 2. Only issue i have is waiting another 6-8 months for wave 3 (really excited for some of the minis in that wave).

Game is great fun, and it is so much better with the options added in wave 2.

I have waited years... years.. for shadows of brimstone, kingdom death, and more to deliver. This one seems long but is delivering.

Jurassic Park? That will probably be fethed and end like robotech right tactics.

I just feel like delivery dates should be taken more seriously. If you're planning to do a KS, and make a delivery date, it should be honored. I can understand minor delays sure. But even before covid the delivery time was functionally irrelevant. It simply wasn't going to happen and didn't, so the purpose of the date given was pointless and they probably knew that from the start.

It's hard to say without having a trenches-eye-view of what was going on in production and shipping.

Long delays seem especially common in licensed games. The last Pacific Rim movie was years ago, I see no signs of it continuing and in any case board game revenue is chump change. So it won't be a priority for whoever has to approve it.

My personal hierarchy of KS risk is something like:

Digital products only
Single medium products (ie just miniatures, no paper product)
Mixed medium products
Licensed products

I know a company that has a turn-around time of months for their Kickstarters, but they have a phenomenal international network, a very good working relationship with a Chinese factory, and almost a captive audience.
