SKYRIM!!!!!!
DayZ is the new Skyrim


Not all #1's have equal sales. For as long as Day Z has been #1, I've heard it has now sold 2 million. When you look at it that way, sometimes being #1 on steam isn't all that impressive.
Actually I don't think Skyrim sold a whole heck of a lot more units on the PC either. IIRC the reports were suggesting something like 3 million units sold on the PC.

Those reports were by a site that completely pulled those numbers out of its ass. They said that they aggregated data from Steam (who never gives out sales data), Zenimax (ditto for the PC) and unspecified "other sources."

Ie, we're just making shit up!

Steam has 1.5+ billion dollars of revenue every year (probably inching close to 2 billion by end of this year.) Match that with a title that's been in the top 10 for 20 months, and then somehow only sold 3 million copies. That math just doesn't add up.

1. Find my iPhone May 5, 2014, 10:52 Creston
 
The officer urged anyone whose phone is stolen to call the police

so they can shrug, make you fill out a form, and then do nothing about it. Even if the GPS tracking shows the thing to be a block away.

“Let police officers take care of it. We have backup, guns, radio, jackets — all that stuff civilians don’t have.”

and that we won't use to help you. But hey, at least we have it!


I do have to say, though, that going to confront the thief seems like a rather ballsy move. You can easily wind up in the hospital or worse, all for the sake of a phone? People's priorities are straight-up out of wack.

ZeniMax knows, in the worst case this is going to get settled out of court to avoid lengthy, costly lawyer fees, so they will make something out of it.

You are assuming that they have a case. I doubt Facebook/Oculus will settle, and if the counter-argument released today holds any water the ounis to produce evidence is on ZeniMax. Fuckin litigous bastard cunts.


Not to mention, we're talking about folks who are throwing around billions of dollars. These folks to give two shits about lawyer fees.

Nah, every business cares about fees. If it's cheaper to settle than it would be to take the thing to court, they just settle to be done with it. Facebook is not Newegg, they're not some bastion against bullshit lawsuits that's out to prove a point.

and only after the Facebook deal was announced has ZeniMax now made these claims through its lawyers.

Well yeah. Now you have something to steal. You can't pluck a bald chicken, etc.

News Comments > On Advanced Warfare Realism and Sledghammer's Cancelled Game
3. Re: On Advanced Warfare Realism and Sledghammer's Cancelled Game May 5, 2014, 10:39 Creston
 
to ensure that Advanced Warfare is a realistic vision of our future rather than a lazy collection of robots and lasers."

We'll save the lazy for the next nine games we do in this setting.

saying part of the reason Sledgehammer bosses parted EA out of fear of "franchise fatigue."

So do they mean they were worried their own franchise would get done to death, or that they were worried they were going to have to work on the same thing over and over and over and over again? Because if it's the latter, yeah, going to go work on Call of Duty is a brilliant career move. LOTS of opportunity for diverse work there.

Teehee, Skyrim!

I wonder if the bump is from people fleeing ESO?

Maybe. But you'd think most of the people fleeing the ESO trainwreck would have had Skyrim for ages at this point.

Yup. For that matter, you'd think every single PC in the entire universe now has a copy of Skyrim on it.

Didn't Obama order the CDC to investigate, once and for all, the whole "violent videogames cause kids to turn into rampaging killers" horseshit?

I guess the CDC runs on Valve Time? How fucking long does that take, CDC?

Or was this more Presidential "I say I'm gonna do something, but heh, I'm really not," claptrap?

Yeah I doubt Samsung is that worried about $120M.

Yeah, I bet they are.

Are you saying that at, lets say, $100 profit per phone, they are prepared to just lose 1.2 million phones? As if.

They were looking at BILLIONS of dollars of possible damages, and they are a multi-multi billion dollar corporation. 120M isn't that big of a deal to them, all things considered, no.

So it's basically like Crysis, except for the huge levels and the free-form gameplay.

So Crysis 2?

That's actually... fairly accurate.

Ghosts didn't have infinite spawns. I'm not expecting this one will.

It didn't? OMG Innovation!

Improve voice recognition? But all the Xbone sheep fanboys are bleating that voice recognition is already marvelous and that Kinect is the most perfect thing ever created...
