“Now, if you have a Chromecast stick or a Roku box, you can. So why do we buy consoles? I mean, your phone will be powerful enough to power any game in two more generations. And, so, why buy a console? I think Microsoft actually knows that.”

That guy has got to be fucking kidding big time. Yup. A phone will render games as fast as a console in 1080p in two more generations. Totally gonna happen. Hey. Another couple generations and the phone is gonna swoosh by in the left lane and enable everyone to play at 4K@60Hz.

What a fucking n00b, man.

Oooooooh Slim would be DANGEROUS with this kinda money!

I'd rent out a stadium somewhere geographically in the middle of the United States and throw a MASSIVE PARTY! Literally EVERYONE would be invited! First come, first 60,000 served. Party members would be given a hooker and some blow at the door, free of charge! I'd have a waterside built in the middle that you could ride as much as you wanted AND the "water" used for the ride would be 1000's of gallons of 'Olde English 800' malt liquor! There would be a giant disco ball hanging from the ceiling, lasers bouncing all over the place, 20 dollars bills blown all over the stadium as confetti and a giant pinata that looks like a ram and filled with weed and ecstasy bags that's flies around the stadium on a zip wire that you can shoot at with shotguns! An entire hospital staff would be on duty with a triosh center. There would be a motocross track built all the way around the edge of the stadium that anyone would be allowed to race anything on; ambulances or dump trucks, WHY NOT? It would be catered by 'Dairy Queen' because I LOVE me some damn butterscotch Dilly Bars! The event would last an entire weekend with 25 bands playing continuously through out, Flogging Molly IS A MUST! Towards the end of it, they would open the roof and helicopters would dump like 500,000 gallons of cherry KoolAid on everyone and the largest mud fight in HISTORY would commence!

Oh if only *sighs*

Goddammit dude. You've really thought this through. Big kudos for one vivid fantasy. Not bad. I especially like the part where all the drunk, stoned and drugged people are shooting the zip wire pinata with shotguns. Awesome!

Do you think it would be impossible to graph Skyrim on a bell curve since it's always rocketing to the top whenever it damn well pleases?

Skyrim curve.

Being at the top of the Steam charts doesn't mean it really is selling hand over fist and thus everything below even less and could be a large drop off from 1 to 2 depending on if there is a new release at the top.

Recall when D:OS was on top week after week, all that added up to a little of 500K in sales, not bad, but it's also not omg either. They've also mentioned 80% of sales was from steam, you can do the math.

As much as Skyrim has been on the list over the years, PC Sales of Skyrim should be around 3 million by now. There are over 50 million steam users, so there is plenty room for growth and there. Other PC games that have totally dwarfed Skyrim on the PC, a few from Indy's.

My point... Steam Rankings doesn't tell you near enough. Movie Analogy: Is this a week with a 100 million dollar blockbuster or is it an off week where no movies gross 10 mil? I think we have a lot of the later on Steam over the 52 weeks per year.

^ this = da truth.

Except for one detail. Swen Vincke of Larian said they sold 90% digital copies and that those sales were "mostly from Steam". He did not specify a percentage like 80%. Could be more, could be less. Who knows what "mostly" means.
Other than that, spot on. I am also often surprised that people seem to think #1 on Steam defaults to "OMG they are selling BAZILLIONS!!11", bathing in cash, blow, beer and hookers.
My guess would be in a regular week with no smash hit at the top of the charts that the #1 spot probably means something in the 10K to 20K range of units max.

BWWAAAAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA

That was a good one, dude.

wh.....what? It's already on consoles, dude, for quite some time.

Yeah but the point is it won't be on the PC for much longer and become console exclusive. Only an old, unsupported version will work on PCs.
But, yeah, you guys go ahead and keep believing in Microsoft's noble intentions.
I will be laughing my ass off while they turn this into a 100% Xbone and Xbox Live Gold service game.

What do you think they are going to do Parker? Go through 50million computers and phones and delete it?

Minecraft isn't going anywhere, and in reality neither was a sequel.

Give it some time. Then they will stop PC support, stop offering the game on PCs, release the sequel as a Xbone exclusive, you know the works. Or maybe you don't if you haven't been around when MS was in acquisition mode in the 90s mainly to destroy competition and get everyone to use MS DOS/Windows. Now they're doing the same in gaming trying to get everyone to go Xbone. First Tomb Raider, now this and the dick moves will continue. Just wait...

Ridiculous. The racing mode should be one of the last things to be put in the game after Squadron 42 and most of the PU are up and running and stable. But they've long lost any sense of priorities. The only priority left is "what can we finish half-assed in a hurry and turn into another sale"?

Fuck these guys now.

So, while BHVR is making PU, and Fundry is making SQ42. all remaining studios should laid back anf wait?

What? Dude. Priorities. It ain't that hard is it? With the exception of Foundry 42 (= Squadron 42) they should all be working on basic persistent universe content and not adding a fluff feature like a racing mode to the alpha of Arena Commander just to have another sale opportunity.
Besides, you have obviously not read many studio reports. Do it. Read them.
It's not like Foundry 42 is really knee-deep into work on Squadron 42. They are constantly distracted and have to help out preparing marketing stuff for Gamescom, patching Arena Commander and lots of other crap instead of a clear focus on Squadron 42.
I'm not making this up. Read the reports.

It's very concerning how the focus has clearly totally shifted to "exciting" reveals, Gamescom, PAX North/East/West/South/Whatever, the next round of variant sales, brochures, commercials and anything and everything that can be monetized. All studios were somehow involved in the Gamescom reveal for example instead of doing their actual work on the game. The very definition of publisher poison is lingering over this project. If you read up on failed game projects you will often find devs complaining that they could never get shit done because the publisher demanded a demo here, a reveal there and marketing material for the next big event around the corner.
That is exactly what Chris Roberts is doing here with his studios. He is abusing them just to create more hype and to extract even more money from the masses.

If not outright failure, the least to expect is massive delays. I mean we're already there. Originally the whole game or at least Squadron 42 and the PU alpha was supposed to launch in Q4/2014 and we are not even close to making anything of that sort in 2014.

Probably not. That probably doesn't even make sense.

I don't give a fuck about Minecraft, never played it, never will, but MS is fucking batshit insane to be plunking down that sort of money in another desperate move to save the Xbone. With $2.5bn they could have founded several studios to develop exclusive Xbone crap. But of course in blind actionism they needed something right now and they are lacking the creative vision to build anything of their own anyway. This takeover is the very definition of a declaration of bankruptcy in the creative department.

Just fuck you, MS.

I had such high hopes for this in the early days and now it is all drowning in an ocean of SHIT because of Chris Roberts' infinite greed.
The whole monetization and moving from one sale to the next only disgusts me anymore.

The racing mode FFS... in the early days there were silent whispers about there maybe being a racing mode in the game at one point. And what now? Now it's all of a sudden become a priority feature when they realized that a) it'd be fairly easy (just a few weeks work) to put in
Arena Commander and more importantly b) to couple it with a new round of long overdue (haha) SALES.

I've enacted nomenclature for your condition. We now call your type the "CIG cash grab fanatics". I've also created a symbol you can identify yourself to other fanatics with, here it is "$C".

Good. And I refer to people like you simply as gullible sucker.
You might also want to learn how to quote properly or I might have to extend my "nomenclature" to retarded gullible sucker.

News Comments > Saturday Crowdfunding Roundup

That article definitely is pretty stupid. While a working prototype (which btw certainly does not mean you got to have 50% to 60% of the game finished as that one bloke put it) might help immensely, there is also this wonderful world of visualization tools where you can, you know, visualize concepts to a degree it almost resembles the finished game just without all of the groundwork and backbone and code base.
Heck, if you have no other choice or tools, you could even put something together in Macromedia Flash just to visualize stuff.
Or use an engine that comes with built-in visualization tools. All roads lead to Rome and all that, ya know.

I mean there is a variety of tools on the market just for this purpose that are used by the gaming and moving industry. The latter especially needs this, too, because you don't want to blow millions on something that will end up looking like shit in the finished movie so that's why they also hugely depend on visualization tools to evaluate concepts.

Seems like all there's to it, really, is that some of those KS folks need to do more market research into how to properly present concepts. Like start with a clue instead of being a clueless fucking n00b.

A steal at only $50 each. Why not buy them all. And since many ships now don't come with jump drives you better by a few when they become available.
