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.

I am just gonna leave this gem here

Francois is fond of comparing GamerGate to ISIS

I demand for that "human" to "live" a few weeks in Mossul to experience what ISIS is, and what GamerGate is not.

(For the sole reason that we can establish some scientific comparison ;p)

Also if this like other KS projects, 1.25 million is like 20to40% of what's actually needed.

Inxile over-delivered on wasteland 2. I think they know what they're doing here with regards to budgeting and cost management.

Quite so, but what I say does not mean they do not know how much they need. I am saying 1.25 million is NOT what they actually need. A game like this, with 3d art assets in UE4 needs at least 3 to 4 million. Wasteland 2 got away with it because it looks absolutely ugly and runs on Unity (An engine with very easy art integration)

If this doesn't support Windows 7 and 8 I am going to laugh Because dunno if Oculus noticed, but there are 2 competitors without this restriction

Also what the fuck is Windows 10 graphics hardware these words do not mean what MS thinks they do...

Ps.: Oculus Touch sounds cool though

Reminds me of that other news piece about how a fanart guy got into the industry... talks about how he took "free" work offers for mobile games and assorted, which means he is PART of the cancer that destroys proper jobs in that industry. When I tell people they have to pay me a proper hourly fee (17€) I hear never back, and if someone wants something for less, then he gets work of 1 or 2 hours, with that quality level (proper 3d artwork can take 10 to 100 hours)

So yay for him? He learned skills without being paid, that's called slavery. But unlike slaves of the past, he is GRATEFUL for that, what the actual fuck

Capitalism is a cancerous growth, and the driving force behind it are zero wage slaves that LITERALLY work for ZERO MONEY. They destroy the industry, and then complain about the situation in that industry? LMAO

human nature is the cancerous growth

dont worry... the fire is coming

No I don't buy it's all human nature, humans have the highest reward feedback when something they do is acknowledged by another human. Capitalism doesn't have that in it's system, people EXPECT that he who is paid is grateful, but that's not how humans work biologically. Capitalism is human nature inverted and perverted.

I want BloodDeath ;p Sounds about as inspired as the 16th Assasins Creed spin-off and 32th MOBA, though I have to admit HoTS has caught my attention (for some reason, when you remove the item management, these games are a lot more fun for me)

There are 2 moments in the original game where you absolutely have to shoot, and 1 where you absolutely have to kill someone.

And that has imo nothing to do in a parkour game, optional, sure, but not forced.

Well I thought the 2 characters (Yes, really) he wrote were awesome, everything else he was co-authored (And forced!). And that is indeed that.

PoE expansion better be a hell of a lot better though. But maybe it's the curse of the first release, BG1 wasn't so awesome either, the addon made it better, BG2 then was awesome, the addon made it a complete game.

So change for the better is still possible

Steam Machine would be slightly more tolerable if it ran Windows.

While I sorta agree, that is neither their goal (license fees -> MS) nor is it an issue for you, I mean you could always just.. install Windows on it ;p Chances are that if you pick one from a builder that puts desktop parts in and nothing custom you can easily run Windows 10 on it.

For me only steam link is relevant though... and I will never buy hardware until it's been out for a few months and the issues are ironed out. Steam doesn't strike me as a proficient hardware manufacturer...

Cold and wet is infinitely better than hot and dry

Or hot and wet.

Hot and wet is always best. Couple that with some Vermont maple syrup and it's a definite good time.

Maybe if you like swamps and mosquitoes for breakfast ;p I'd rather take hot steak and bacon wrapped sausages when it's storming blizzard outside

I've only watched the first 3 seasons, but I've read all the books. The problem is that GRRM keeps adding characters and scattering them to the winds until there are just too many to keep track of by book 5. I understand that the showrunners are trying to reduce the number of characters to keep it reasonable, but you can only do so much without eliminating critical plot points.

*returns to eating his bowl of unborn puppie stew*

Season 5 already diverts from the books Which makes it TONS better imo (and contrary to what blue thinks, I love season 5 substantially more than any other) it's good to see the show finally remembers that The Winter can't be damned coming for 7 seasons (which as I hear, is the planned runtime of the show ,p)

Wtf? Why would people put email addresses on BANK account info that doesn't belong to them? I mean not like banks ever send you anything relevant that way except maybe statements, but what about Paypal or stores, what about job info or sensitive online store info?

Do they think that just because they have a name that they have this gmail address? How the fuck would they even access their mail account? I assume you have tons of "access warnings" and password reset attempts?

stupidity of humanity does not surprise me, but sometimes.. you really gotta ask yourself.. what the actual fuck is wrong with people? Man this makes me so glad that only 1 other person in the world uses my nick... I seriously couldn't stand such bullshit for very long, and I'd probably do nefarious things to make them stop pretty damn quickly.

Btw, [Nickname]@gmail.com is a valid email address. Only thing gmail flat out ignores dots.. so technically a dot is not invalid, it just ignored making example.fancy examplefancy internally, but you can still log-on as example.fancy...
