    I wasn’t one of the backers, but I am sure pre-ordering it! It looks amazing, and i think it has a lot of potential!

  • kodokijo4

    It’s about time the gaming industry took this course. Game console wars deserves a freedom that ouya provides. Good luck ouya. I hope you revolutionize the gaming industry that leans on more on gamers than money grabbing corporate.

  • FattyInACan

    i wasn’t one of the backers but it looks fucking awesome!

  • John Vaught II

    No I use it main OS because it’s free, stable, much more secure and free of viruses and all of the software I use is cross platform anyways. I also find it more fulfilling since it’s been a learning experience and and since i’ve been using the platform for several years now have seen it getting more popular as time goes on. I use Ubuntu which is the most popular linux distro. I’ve tried several other distro’s as well but i prefer the Debian / Ubuntu branch.

  • TizzyT455

    Hmm I know few people on linux distros and even fewer who use them for normal purposes. Most of the linux users I know are either developers or heading into developing. Do you fit into such a category 🙂 ?

  • John Vaught II

    I have a windows licensing disc for XP, Vista, and 7. I just don’t like using windows. I quit dual booting over a year ago because the only time i’d boot to windows would be to play an old PC game…which would happen maybe once a year tops…I’m just a console gamer like that i suppose.

  • TizzyT455

    dual booting might be an option for you lol. And if you don’t have $ for windows, /me goes to the shore line and looks over at the bay.

  • John Vaught II

    also i dont use windows, i use linux so i still wont be playing any AAA titles unless I use OnLive or another streaming service or until Steam’s linux port is finished.

  • John Vaught II

    I could, but I don’t want to spend all that $ on a computer then have to upgrade it with new parts every few years. It’s a hassle for me, I work on computers for a living and by the time i get home i’m done. I don’t even use a computer anymore when I’m not at work. I use my Nexus 4 phone or my Nexus 7 tablet. Plus i’d have to map all the controls for games i play to a controller because i don’t like mouse and keyboard gaming. not because i can’t do it, i can no problem, i just dont prefer it.

  • dancinghoboman

    Get a gaming PC.

  • yoshipikminghost

    Great, now we’ll have ouya fanboys… ugh…

  • John Vaught II

    at any rate I’m completely fed up with paying $60 for any title. Even at $20 i find myself hesitant to buy a new game.

  • John Vaught II

    @ImTheBlackJesus dishonored looks cool but it’s not something I’m into and the only other game that interested me was AC3 which I’ve beat and i liked it but i found it like most current s to be more watered down than its predecessors. Not unlike Skyrim, which i lovr, but it seems AAA games keep appealing more to casuals

  • dancinghoboman

    I don’t know why they’re using Tegra 3 either it’s terrible.

  • ImTheBlackJesus

    You must be living under a rock if you think we only get 5 good games each year that are “linear and mundane”.

    Just to name a few of the games we’ve gotten this year which directly contradict your statement: The Walking Dead, Dragon’s Dogma, Max Payne 3, Binary Domain, Trials Evolution, Darksiders 2, Forza Horizon, Dishonored, Fez, Assassin’s Creed III etc.

  • John Vaught II

    If you wanna see what the system is capable of check this video out called “Nvidia Tegra 3: Amazing Gaming 2012”. It’s the same hardware the Ouya will be running. Actually the Ouya should be a little more powerful than the hardware here.

  • John Vaught II

    There are a lot of Android games that already work with controllers, and a lot of developers who are already porting some of their titles to the platform…the Nexus 7 (which i do most of my gaming on now) cost more to make because of it having a touch screen, battery, and other parts that the Ouya won’t have. Ouya’s controller will have a touch pad built in for some games that still need a bit of touch control.

  • John Vaught II

    AAA Titles? We’re lucky to get 5 good games a year and every time they just keep getting and more and more linear and mundane…and they’re still $60…fuck that. This is why my Xbox 360 is a glorified DVD player now. Besides since it will have OnLive you’ll be able to play tons of “AAA” titles on the Ouya provided you have a high speed internet connection.

  • John Vaught II

    1.5 – 1.7 GHz (not sure exactly) quad core Nvidia Tegra 3. 1GB RAM, 8GB internal memory, Originally planned to be built on Android 4.0 but they’ve since upgraded it to 4.1 😀

    Thanks I appreciate it!

  • Sahoniwaya

    I’ve been a fan of yours for a while I may not have the money but I’d love to spread the word as best I can. I’ve always been a fan of stop motion.

  • freestyledancegirl

    love your art! very cool….my sister has a blog and simply posted a donate button through paypal…she wasn’t even raising money for a specific thing and she has done quite well with it. maybe you could try that? good luck!

  • WatergazerRed

    I’m loving your work. I hope your project gets over-funded. I’m a fellow Kickstarter and I know the work that goes in to starting one up, as well as the work involved in self-producing a stop-motion project like yours. You have your work cut out for you! I just hope you can succeed and get cracking!
