What the FUCK is The Witcher 3 doing BEHIND utter shite like ARK, GTA V and CSGO???

This supports the turd pic of that indie dude where he said the gaming industry is going to shit. He's right. It is going down the shitter real fast when quality games like TW3 rank lower than complete garbage like ARK, GTA V and the rehash of a two decades old MP shooter.
Remember most Witcher 3 purchases are on GOG. Add these platforms together and it might well be on top.

I know, man, but regardless of sales platform, it should still be trampling all over garbage like GTA V, ARK and especially CSGO. As always, people keep buying the wrong games. This is bullshit. Same bullshit as the elections when everyone is voting for the wrong fuckers. I wantz mah monies back, d00d!!11

Sorry, but no matter how much you dislike the business practices of Bethesda (Zenimax) you have to give them credit for delivering some seriously rock solid games that most of us have spent HUNDREDS of hours in. I know I'll be spending at least 100+ hours in F4 & Dishonored was an OUTSTANDING game. Really looking forward to tonight's stream!

Rock solid? Hardly. If it wasn't for the fact that they allow modding of their games they'd have been toast long ago. Skyrim became a great game - in spite of what they released - all thanks to the modders. FO3 same thing. Bethsoft can't write or do quest development for shit. And since they've become a console first company it got even worse in terms of UI, graphics, etc. What they do is provide a fairly decent, if limited, sandbox to play in. They leave the details up to everyone else. I personally thought Dishonored was pretty meh. I'll likely pick this one up, but not until it hits the bargain bin.

HAHAHA look at that... Mrs. GrumpyCat is trying to be edgy again. Aaaawwww. How cuuuuuuute!

Skyrim. 20+ million sales and counting. Nuff said, hater bitches. And all of your 20 million tear drops won't change a fucking thing. Aaaaawwwww. Craaaaaap. BWWAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA.

Seriously... Fuck that tank shite. I'm so sick and tired of games basing their entire story and gameplay around one new dumb gadget of the protagonist. Imagine CDP showing off the crossbow in every fucking trailer like it's THE new addition everyone was waiting for -- tbh, that's exactly how pathetic and simple the AC fanbase is.

Fuck this tank shite. Sure, you'll need it to blast through main-quest walls. Sure, you'll need it to clear misc-quest areas occupied by a legion of Knight Tanks for bonus XP. Sure, the tank will have some cool entrees during cutscenes, saving your arse during impossible odds.... But fuck off using that shite as THE UNIQUE SELLING POINT of the new game. It's not. And if it is... I am disappointed. Allot.

Duuuuuude. Shut up. Meds time!

So 700k, puts PC sales of W3 to about 1.2 million if you take steamspy (450k~) into account.

Dude? Did you even go to the link and watch the video? No, you did not because if you did then you would know that the numbers are 693,000 GOG Galaxy and 613,000 all other PC platforms combined = about 1.3 million PC copies out of a little over 4 million total so far.
I'm also not sure which version of SteamSpy you are using but the one that I know of has The Witcher 3 at approximately 575K owners.
So if SteamSpy is correct we're at 693,000 GOG Galaxy, 575,000 Steam, 38,000 others.

Arguing over 0.1 million guesstimate? Really? did you not find anything else today worth arguing about?

I dunno if I should feel honored or insulted.

You were WRONG on two counts. First the SteamSpy numbers and secondly the total number of PC sales. And, yes, you should feel honored to be surrounded by such well educated, distinguished, behaved, intellectual, civilized, literate, sophisticated and in a word AWESOME gentlemen like myself who give a shit about correcting your dumb posts .

Well that's just ... sad. I've literally seen 13 year olds act more mature and civilized.

I behaved more mature and civilized when I was 13 years old, too, maggot!

Uh this is like the lamest, most uninspired piece of concept shit ever. They just blatantly ripped it straight from the movie and turned it into shitty cartoony graphics. The only thing that is different is that IIRC there were no (visible/identifiable) aliens on the rebel side defending Echo base. So they get 0.001 creativity points for including that guy with the three cocks in his face.

Oh. Wait. Hoth was super-cold and hostile to any lifeforms, right? So, unfortunately, we have to subtract 10 points for the dude not wearing any kind of hat or having any kind of cover over his face.
But there will probably be AWESOME DLC beaver hats for aliens with cocks in their face so they won't fucking freeze to death.

Seriously. This is going to be the lamest and most disappointing game release of this decade. I feel sorry for any moron parting with their $120 for this ($60 game + $60 premium). On the other hand... anyone who still preorders EA/DICE games doesn't deserve better.

I could live with a PS logo on the PC version since Sony aren't treacherous little motherfuckers like Microsoft backstabbing PC gamers every two seconds. They're just doing their thing on the PS but have no real interest in screwing over PC gamers like Microsoft who are still pursuing their masterplan of eliminating PC Windows gaming ever since the conception of the first ShitBox.
So if the G29 PS4 version were PC-compatible then I might even consider it. But I'm not even thinking about touching the G920 with a ten foot pole as long as it has that Xbone crap on it. Yuck. I already feel like taking a shower just from looking at the disgusting little fucker....

Like fuck would I buy a racing wheel for my PC with that fucking shitty Xbone logo on it. I'd have to vomit on my $399 wheel every ten seconds. Thanks but how about the fuck no?!??
It's gonna be hard enough to stock up on a lifetime supply of barf bags for Windows 10 when you are greeted by some Xbox shit screen every time you do anything related to gaming on that OS.

Your reading comprehension is lacking. "Pays homage" is not the same as "from the makers of." If you watch the Kickstarter video, they actually give themselves credit for a bunch of RPGs but BG is not among them.

Uuhh... so you are illiterate then? Why did you skip the second paragraph where they clearly state "Project Eternity aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPG's that we enjoyed making" and "At Obsidian, we have the people responsible for many of those classic games".

Seriously, I'm speechless at your lack of reading comprehension and your profound lack of ability to process information. Then you claiming to "offer facts" (more like grade A bullshit) while ignoring REAL facts presented to you is simply cute at this point.

Obsidian never advertised themselves as the makers of BG, which is easily the most well-known of the IE games and the series that received successful remasters across multiple platforms. Here's another fun fact: The Icewind Dale remaster has sold around 45k copies on Steam. Pretty popular, eh? All those mainstream gamers really embracing Obsidian's legendary historical status!

I'm not going to address all of the complete additional bullshit you posted on top of your already very impressive pile but just to illustrate how uninformed you are... here it is straight from the Project Enternity Kickstarter website under the introductory "Welcome to Project Eternity" headline. It's literally the first paragraph on the project:

Obsidian Entertainment and our legendary game designers Chris Avellone, Tim Cain, and Josh Sawyer are excited to bring you a new role-playing game for the PC. Project Eternity (working title) pays homage to the great Infinity Engine games of years past: Baldur’s Gate, Icewind Dale, and Planescape: Torment.

Project Eternity aims to recapture the magic, imagination, depth, and nostalgia of classic RPG's that we enjoyed making - and playing. At Obsidian, we have the people responsible for many of those classic games and we want to bring those games back… and that’s why we’re here - we need your help to make it a reality!

^ so... yeah, Obsidian did not advertise themselves as the makers of BG or other Infinity engine games at all, right? Naaaaahhh. Not at all. Why would they? Rolleyes

It's also very amusing how you first started calling BS on SteamSpy and are now obviously using SteamSpy numbers to "prove" that IwD only sold 45K copies. Which is it? Is SteamSpy reliable only if it fits your agenda, Mr. Hypocrite?

As I said you're just arguing for arguing's sake, flip-flopping, and grasping at non-existent straws, all just because you can't admit you were totally wrong.

I'm not sure why you'd think "mainstream" would mean anything other than "average Joe." That's pretty much the definition of mainstream. And again, if you honestly think BG, ID or PST hold any meaning to mainstream gamers, you're delusional.

Again: You started with the "mainstream appeal" so you'd have to defend your use of it and not I. But those games definitely had mainstream appeal back in their day (of course!) and nowadays they are "legendary" old school games.
There is a very high chance that mainstream gamers of today have heard about these games. A much higher chance than them having heard of a retarded sounding title like "Divine Divinity" (awesome game, stupid title unfortunately thanks to the retarded publisher).
So if a KS RPG is advertised as "from the makers of BG, IwD and PST", games which have sold in the millions of copies and that have a legendary historical reputation PLUS that have pretty popular remakes that were made available across a wide range of platforms including Steam, GOG, and even mobile crap like iOS, come on... no contest on ALL levels compared to the rather unknown dudes from Belgium with their poorly handled (by their publishers) international releases Divine Divinity or the Dragon Knight Saga.

Fact is that Divinity Original Sin had the MUCH weaker premise. The reason it ended up doing better in sales is because it turned out to be the much better game. Simple as that at the end of the day.

Complete bullshit. First, you started with the "mainstream appeal", not me. That's why I put it in "quotes" in my reply, too. I thought you meant "mainstream appeal" in relation to RPG gamers or people interested in Kickstarters but you meant the "average Joe"? Really?
Then why did YOU start talking about mainstream appeal in the first place and why are you now trying to turn it around as if I wanted to talk about mainstream appeal of the average Joe kind? Are you mentally not feeling well today?

Secondly, compared to the real hardcore RPGs of the 1990s, the Baldur's Gates and Icewind Dales et al were massively casualized high fantasy RPGs backed by a popular ruleset (D&D) so yes they were the games that brought RPGs out of the hardcore niche to the mainstream (millions of sales across all of the Infinity engine games are more than proof enough for this).

No, Sir. I'm not sure why you're even trying to argue the fact that Obsidian/PoE is more popular than Larian/D:OS. We have track records, we have numbers, we have names... see my previous post. You're just arguing for arguing's sake just because you don't want to admit that CJ the oh-so horrible troll is 100% correct. OK, fine, keep arguing then but good luck finding anyone who takes you serious.

Also, D:OS was definitely less niche than PoE. D:OS had bright, colorful, cartoony 3D graphics and humorous, light-hearted writing. It also had co-op, which gained it a lot of media attention. PoE is a very traditional 2D CRPG with a much darker and somber tone. When it comes to mainstream appeal, D:OS is easily the more appealing of the two games.

Nope. It does not get more "mainstream appealing" than a high fantasy RPG "from the makers of Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale and Planescape Torment".
PoE was definitely the game with much more "mainstream appeal" from a much better known developer with a much better known track record across many franchises including Star Wars and Fallout and individual "celebrities" on top of it all (Avellone, Urquheart, Sawyer etc.). Ask a random mainstream gamer "who is Vincke" and you're gonna get a "d00d r u high" stare.

Come on. It's not even a contest. It's completely ludicrous to suggest that D:OS would have more mainstream appeal than PoE and it also shows in the KS numbers (D:OS at 19K backers and $944K vs. PoE at almost 74K backers and just short of $4 million raised). We're talking a FACTOR OF FOUR with regard to both backer number and money raised.
