    that channel's pretty cool, i've been a subscriber since someone posted his video about the PGS in the PGS thread on here :D

    <fangirling>and while the "shady crowdfunding" vids (there are more!) are funny, my favorites are the indiebox reviews. not the usual angry gamer stuff, and even if he's not a fan of the game's genre, he still highlights good features and mechanics in case someone else might be interested in it. also, the hardware reviews are nice and very detailed.</fangirling>

    Gosh, that video was great. After the PGS one I was actually somewhat concerned that at least SMACH Z would one day see the daylight. That video completely changed my opinion.
    Man, they uploaded the SAME EXACT VIDEO for... I don't know... I think this is the third time now.

    Mmm as skeptical as I am that video is connecting far too many dots for me.

    Rhombio has Rhesponded (kill me) seemingly to both the allegations of them violating NDA's and them faking stuff.
    This upcoming AMA might be interesting.

    Haven't you heard the news?

    While Trump and Macron did not agreed on most points, they both confirmed that they will back smach z with public funds!

    Edit: it seems Pyongyang is interested too as kim loath having to use some Samsung tablets to control is ICBM, through it might be hard for him with all the other interested governments that wants to go in...

    I can't, but let me take a wild guess: their super competent new partners were totally ready to roll out a new product from nothing in like 4 months, but they conveniently decided to wait for the Next Better Thing instead.

    The Raven Ridge Zen/Vega SoCs haven't even been officially announced by AMD yet, much less have they given a product listing or release date. So this will conveniently add several months minimum to their supposed (completely unrealistic) release date. Meanwhile they can sit back and blame the delay on AMD. But while it could buy them time it won't solve the bigger problem which is that they apparently don't have enough money to actually do any of this, and probably couldn't even if they did.

    That said, the lowest power Raven Ridge solution probably would be better than the Merlin Falcon monstrosity they currently have selected.

    Nah, you're wrong, the reason for the delay is that they wanted to get away from DHL UPS and the like, they don't like small players like these. they are planning to have the smash Z reindeer delivered instead, unfortunately the end of year is already pretty busy for them...
    Smash Z already tasked Google to adapt their Santa's tracking page for their devices delivery.

    uh, didn't their first campaign say something about partnering up with amd and something failed so they switched to that clickarm thing? this is like a soap opera but with companies instead of people...

    I suggest a merger between PGS and Smach Z team... I bet together they'll find a hardware developer willing to completely waste their time ^^

    Good idea, maybe we should also merge into a topic called "Scamorron Island".

    They could also talk to what's his name from the Retro VGS to make a console scam.

    A number of barbed questions so far and zero replies.

    I can see StopDropandRetro in there under one or more alias's . Interesting what the Smach Z team had wrote to him, totally unsurprising though - paticularly the legl threat

    Update: finally they are replying,
