As per this Meta announcement, the Fall 2011 Gaming Grant application process has come to... a bit of an abrupt end.

As Brett, who was running it, cannot actually see deleted posts, this is simply an archive thread meant to post out who did get listed.

Each game will be listed as its own answer, with all of the applicants listed afterwards. I will only be listing the top 10 in the event that there were more than 10 applicants for any particular game, using the original top reputation metric from the original run.


All 9 games for the session have been posted. Please double-check your entry and if something is erroneous or if there is something you think you should add, feel free to edit it right in (or comment me, if you are sub 2k). I'll have Brett mark each post if the games have been ordered.

Wouldn't locking and temporarily undeleting the promotional-grant questions be easier? I mean, this way we're losing all the comments in the entries, on the entries and on the opening posts -- about distributors, pre-order bonuses, specific editions of the games, etc. Also, I recall Cyberskull and yx. entering for 3 games, so that'll have to be resolved. –  lunboks Oct 3 '11 at 17:20

I'm including extra data where necessary and when stated. Locked or not, undeleting all 9 posts isn't going to be a very amiable act. –  Grace Note Oct 3 '11 at 17:26

@lunboks: comments for Elder scrolls, Battlefield, Batman are viewable (click the links). The rest did not appear to have any comments. –  Shog9 Oct 3 '11 at 17:29
    
My preferred options went in this order: Skyrim - Batman - Zelda (I signed up for zelda as a third option since I was in the 9th spot for Skyrim and I might be bumped out of it). So someone else can move up and take the zelda spot if I do, in fact, make it onto the Skyrim list. –  z - Oct 4 '11 at 15:37

So, about this round, since a new one has started... Is this being done according to the new reimbursement rules or not? Should I contact someone (and who? Is Brett still in charge?), or will someone contact me? –  lunboks Oct 6 '11 at 6:13
    
@lunboks Brett is still running this the same as before, I believe. –  Grace Note Oct 6 '11 at 12:54
    
@lunboks After being informed of my error, I withdrew the 3rd entry. –  CyberSkull Oct 17 '11 at 11:21

I'd actually prefer Steam - is editing the answer all I have to do to make that correction, or should I contact Brett? –  Dave McClelland Oct 5 '11 at 15:24
    
PC version was delayed into November. –  Jeff Atwood Oct 6 '11 at 4:06
    
>:( It seems like more people play those games on consoles, so now this puts me and my Winbox way behind to try to capture the early flurry of questions. –  Nick T Oct 15 '11 at 15:39
    
@DaveMcClelland I'd think he's going to contact us? The game comes out tomorrow (for non-PC) so I'm surprised he hasn't already, actually. –  Matthew Read Oct 17 '11 at 17:58
    
@MatthewRead Good question. Brett already has my contact information, so I didn't think much of it. Assuming it's acceptable, though, I'd rather just wait until November for the PC release (darn delays :() –  Dave McClelland Oct 17 '11 at 20:05

The game in this answer is Torchlight 2. It is available for PC.

NOTE: Torchlight 2 does not yet have a release date. It is possible that it will be pushed to 2012. In the event of this happening, users will receive the game in 2012 and will be able to apply to any one game in the Fall 2011 Grant that still has open slots available. I cannot, however, guarantee that any of the other 8 games will still have open slots in the event of Torchlight 2 being pushed to 2012. It's a risky, risky world, these video games!

There were 9 applicants.

I don't really care how, though. I mean, I'm not sure whether Origin supports buying copies for other people, but if it does, it's just as well. Better, even. No shipping and suchlike. –  lunboks Oct 3 '11 at 17:55

I was sad when I didn't see my name, I thought I wasn't eligible for participating or something :) –  jmfsg Oct 3 '11 at 17:25
    
Steam is a viable option for me if it's easier/cheaper than shipping a disk. –  sjohnston Oct 3 '11 at 21:38
    
I'd actually prefer Steam - is editing the answer all I have to do to make that correction, or should I contact Brett? –  Dave McClelland Oct 5 '11 at 15:23
    
@Dave It's fine to just edit it in here. November 30th is quite a ways away. –  Grace Note Oct 5 '11 at 16:21
    
@GraceNote: How soon will we receive notices or can we ask about about the games? There are some preorder perks that I wouldn't mind getting (or not) but I imagine we'd have to order beforehand. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 12 '11 at 0:38
    
@Jeff Poke Brett to see if he's up for being able to order early for this one. –  Grace Note Oct 12 '11 at 2:33
    
Grace, this is available for pre-purchase on steam, there are even bonuses for doing so. It'd be cool if you start sending them now even though it's not released yet. edit: 'now' as in 'for taking advantage of the pre-purchase bonus' –  jmfsg Oct 17 '11 at 20:29
    
@JuanManuel: It's too bad there isn't one set of pre-order goodies for all retailers. It seems to vary everywhere I've looked. Steam has the Ottoman Doctor (MP?), Amazon has the "Altair Outfit" (SP), and GameStop has a bunch more including the Ottoman Jester (MP), Vlad Prison, and various upgrades and goodies. I'm starting to think I should go for the GS route to get the most out of this. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 18 '11 at 19:26
    
Bit the bullet and preordered this instead. I guess I'll have to contact Brett to give him a scan of my receipt. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 25 '11 at 23:40
    
@GraceNote: Sorry to bug you about this again but could you poke Brett for me? I'm trying to get a hold of him without sticking comments on unrelated posts and so far have been unsuccessful. Or perhaps a process for communication needs to be solidified for all grants. You guys know how to contact us but we don't really know how to contact you guys back. –  Jeff Mercado Oct 27 '11 at 0:56
    
@Jeff I'll see what I can find out –  Grace Note Oct 27 '11 at 1:34
    
@GraceNote Can you check with Brett on this for me? Now that it's out for consoles, I thought Brett may contact me about a Steam preorder but haven't heard anything about it. He and you both should have my email address. Thanks :) –  Dave McClelland Nov 16 '11 at 2:14
