I don't necessarily think Paul gale is a fraud but I do think he is the worst kind of person. If you take a step back and look at how he has been going about doing his thing its been super egotistical and attention sneaking and Hess constantly made it about him about oh look at me IM doing this for you. Think of it this way the developers are working their **bleep** of to make this game and they don't want people to see it before its ready and they have a chance to polish it and make it awesome and then u have this guy who is no way involved with the project just start posting about it without any thought of the people who actually are and to top it off Hess posting pictures of himself to do it. To me its the equivalent of going to a movie theater and yelling out the ending of a movie right in the middle of people who are just about to go into the movie.
This didn't need to be posted twice. You're clearly misinformed about Paul's intentions and I'm sorry that you see it this way.
