I found the original article. After some digging around by several people, it appears it was some ICE agents from DHS.

I've been playing this for a few days and find it enjoyable. As someone else said, it will be amazing on a tablet but until then I'll gladly play it on PC.

I am also a casual player who gets stomped by most others online but win the occasional game. Part of the issue is I just use the canned decks rather than building my own. I have yet to try arena mode... perhaps this weekend.

Arena mode is the best part of the game IMO. Everyone is on a level playing field to start. You have access to every card in the game, just hope the right random ones pop up, and you know how to build a winning deck. If you win 7 games, you pretty much paid for your entrance fee. I haven't spent a single penny on this game either.

NASCAR 13 for PC is hopelessly broken, and instead of fixing it, they release the next version, broken as well on PC. They stopped responding to the complaints on the Steam forums and basically told customers to fuck off. Well Deep Silver, you can take your oval racing borefest and shove it up your ass!!!

Yeah, I'm not sure what to make of those stats. 20m in sales overall feels right, as does $1.2 in total revenue, but only 1.5m in sales on the PC doesn't, given that it has been among the top Steam titles consistently for two years on a weekly basis. That would suggest Steam is doing a lot less business than I thought it was.

Unless those 1.5 million PC players are all doing nothing except downloading every single mod ever made from the nexus, there have to be a LOT more people to be affecting the nexus sites so much. Skyrim has basically forced them to invest $300K (and counting) into new hardware because the Skyrim site alone is murdering their entire infrastructure.

Also, for Steam to make 1.5 billion dollars in revenue and for Skyrim to be in the top 10 consistently for nearly two years, means a lot more people likely bought it than 90 million dollars' worth.

All in all, I'm going to say that the linked site pulled those numbers completely out of their ass in a desperate attempt to not have to admit that Skyrim on the PC outsold the console versions by a wide margin.

At the top of the article it states the source.

WOOOHOOO!!! GO SKYRIM!

Can't beat that price. Best item no the sale all year.

The legs on Skyrim has been literally inconceivable (that word...). I would love to see the monthly sales numbers for that game since launch. I am so curious how many millions of copies they have sold.

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but here ya go. According to this they have sold over 20 million units, but only 14% of that has been on PC.

I almost bought Tactics the other day, but then I thought I should wait for a sale. Good thing I did. Now if I could just check out.

"A playable demo of Battle Worlds: Kronos is now available on Steam, offering the chance to sample this recently released real-time strategy game."

Someone is dreaming of a different style of play.

Started this game up again last night after a long time I did not play it.
It took the Ai about 2 minutes to kick my ass, shut it down and went back to play XCOM instead.
Now I remember why I did not like this game, with all the rapid clicking build order remembering, quick quick quick gameplay, fuck that.
I am not into that anymore.
Much prefer turn based strategy these days, maybe I am getting old or something.

Pause is your friend.

I do NOT dig that bullshi* sidestrafe move in the vid of the Strider!!!! That totally is a ripoff from that Mecha Quaker they released not to far back. I tried the beta and it sucked ball. I don`t want this game to be a rip of VirtuaOn for Gawds sake. Hope they drop that ability.

His barely legible rant means the Hawken beta.

Thanks for translating.

What Beta? The article clearly states there isn't one, but they are "thinking about it."

The Walking Dead was a great game. I'm sure season 2 will be as well. But I fear that TT turining everything into an episodic series is going to water everything down. I doubt one writer, or the ones who worked on WD will be working on the others as they are all in developement at the same time. I think some of these will turn out good, and others not so much. TT saw the success of the Walking Dead game, now they are chasing the money. I guess I can't blame them for wanting to get rich(er) and retire.

At least they continue to support this game, and it's doing well enough they are able to release an expansion. It's not the deepest game in the world, but it is fun. And fun is good.

Great write up on Hudson, Blue. But you are a TERRIBLE dog owner. You let your dogs on the furniture. Just like me.

We'll miss reading about her. I'm going to go hug my dog now.

I'm 49. I started playing games on a punch tape teletype computer before CRT's. Text golf and text bowling. I was hooked and I've never looked back. Turned gaming into a career. The "golden Age" of computer games to me was well before the 90's lol.

I wonder how many people actually finished the main story in Skyrim. I have 71 hours invested in that game, and I didn't even get close. Maybe 71 hours isn't that much. I just got bored with the game. It's the same shit over and over and over and over and over...
