I know overall it's probably a good decision to hire Laidlaw. As Daveyd mentioned, I'm sure it will help them raise more money, and I might not be here even thinking of backing the game without it.

However, I'm told I often look at things a little differently. I won't back this game because they hired Laidlaw. That guy is full of an inordinate amount of shit, and I would never trust a single thing he has to say. That doesn't mean the game will be bad, as Laidlaw is likely nothing more than a spokesman, the Vanna White of cRPGs.

But, even just a PR move like this puts me off a little when it's Laidlaw, and the balance doesn't have to be tipped much, since I don't back many Kickstarters anymore. If the game is actually good, I'll buy it at release.
