It was fun to hear Wingman say the same thing in the talk he gave about crowd-funding, Saturday at the Heartland Gaming Expo. (Look around 2:30:00)

SolC also got a bit of a shout-out at 2:29:10! :)

Whether or not we're friendly towards it is completely different.
That's exactly what I'm saying -- yes, we all *know* about it, but there are a lot who weren't convinced as of this morning (including a lot with "unfriendly" opinions, and a lot with neutral opinions). The video isn't perfect, but it's a big improvement, and it shows a constant movement in the right direction. It was a video for Descent pilots, and it convinced at least some of the neutrals to support.
I'm all for the recognition of new 6DoF games & game types, to bring a much needed influx of new blood into the realm of new choices for gaming pilots & the content they love to use!

And the competition is also a bit of an incentive to make the best games even better! :D
