The final tally?

Oh, just a meagre $8,583,769.

That's from 63,303 backers, with by far the most popular funding option (with over 46,000 taking up the offer) being to spend between $99-139 and get themselves a console when/if the Ouya is actually released.

Kickstarter can suck my festering dick. I'm so entirely tired of the already wealthy asking the middle and lower class to hand them even more money. I would do about anything to take back my investment in the game that fat rich dude who made that awful game about heavy metal, starring Jack Black, is making (I think it was called BRUTAL LEGEND — regardless, it was one of the lousiest games ever released).

The only "welfare queens" lingering in this reality are folks making over $500,000 per year. Everyone else is just trying to get by. Many of them are getting by on less money than they may have had, had they not given rich mother-fuckers extra cash. But the rich bastards? They could care less. Their life is a platter. A silver one. And they expect us to hand them everything, because they're entitled and they deserve it.
