I know what and how.

I said I don't know why anyone would waste any time at all on these games, automated or not.

Steam spy dude knows what he's talking about. Steam haters and gamergate cheerleaders beware: anecdotal evidence arguments are on full display with pure unadulterated numbers and facts.

Of course all the good QWTF snipers are pretty much retired and gone so maybe it won't matter too much.

Not all of them. Besides they were used to leading the red dot in a clean interface, not witnessing the modern mess of permo fog wavy hands, blinding bling and sense overload with shit that don't matter.

Do we need to mention... PORN!?

Indeed sir, yes. Imagine superimposing a victoria's secret model over top of your "big is beautiful" wife.

"What are you wearing on your face, honey?"

"It's..... for my asthma."


Ooooh superimposing... Never even thought of that, Bundy! Think you just won the John Holmes "Mind over Meat" award man.

Pre-purchase incoming!

Hulu still has it wrong. Yes everyone would prefer less advertisement, but that's not why people are leaving.

People are leaving because they can't stream all the show episodes on their TV, *some* have to be from a computer only. And while hooking up a PC to the TV is easy for many, it's annoying enough to cancel subscriptions.

So that's the answer for you Hulu execs who won't read any of this.


I think making people pay and still forcing ads is probably the biggest reason, especially since the competition does not. If you're going to force ads on the pay option, have one short ad at the start and that's it. I agree that the limitation you mention is just stupid as well.

I've also noticed on Hulu, that not all the episodes from the season are available. Do they make them all available under Hulu+?

Hulu has most TV shows most of the time on +, but the restriction is the PC one I mentioned. Hulu really hasn't had any popular mainstream competition, and most people are used to ads, everywhere. And coming from my view, someone who cut the cord primarily because of how much I hated ads, Hulu's ads were more than acceptable comparatively. But sure, it also was a part of the reason to cancel, just not *the* reason.

The problem is Hulu had momentum but it's waned for far too long. "Hulu" went hand in hand with "Netflix" in conversations, and since Hulu hasn't been able to get anyone worth a shit in their licensing department (or possibly PR), they may have missed their opportunity.

Someone let Nick Statt in on the joke yet? PC games have never, ever suffered. Ever.

Just one of the many fads and falsehoods people will feel stupid to have believed in and propagated about in their lifetime.

You are wrong, I never said "Divinity has sold more units because it's a better game" Nor did I say anything about Pillars being a failure. You just wasted a ton of your life googling dumb shit that don't matter.

I said Pillars was a good game, and I said better games get better attention for longer. And the subject was length of time on steam charts.

So... you claim you never said that Divinity sold more because it's a better a game, but you did say that Divinity got more attention because better games get more attention. Do you not see the inherent contradiction there? Probably not, actually. I don't think you've put a lot of thought into this.

While I believe D:OS is most definitely a better game, time hasn't proven it to make it conclusive in context of sales charts. We're comparing AAA RPG giant Obsidian vs Lil Larian. Obsidian had the money, marketing, history, and sales pitches, Larian had word of mouth.

It's you who hasn't put any thought into this, just a bunch of links trying to prove something that not only isn't provable, but isn't worth trying as you did.

Gimme a fucking break Verno, that's the kind of argument that makes me not take you seriously often.

Obsidian sequeled the Fallout series, SWTOR series, NWN, made SPSOT, Wasteland 2, marketed with constant dips in the Baldurs Gate pool, etc. AND, are going to be making the Pathfinder series. They have some of the heftiest RPG nostalgia factor in the business with plenty of modern mega hits, all before the Pillars hype.

Comparing Obsidian to Larian would be laughable in any normal conversation with most of you "where the wind blows" opinion riders...

How to fix gaming for women and minorities? How about Women get "Have a Baby" simulator, and minorities can have "Jump the Fence" sim?

Stupid shit deserves stupid shit. Gaming already appeals to everyone.

And since we have a no-name developer Larian versus a juggernaut like Obsidian, the facts speak for themselves.

So there ya have it, epeen, fanboy, and egg on your face Jerykk -- your subconscious is getting the better of you.

I guess offering facts that undermine your argument makes me a troll?

The facts speak for themselves which isn't very important depending on how they are taken in. It was your "IWD re-release poor sales means BG fans aren't around" that made me realize you were getting desperate.

As for epeen, if there's a game I''m hopeful for but tanks (Wii U, Ouya, etc), I admit it. If one I hate does well (GW2), I admit it. But this board has a history of posters who don't admit it when it's plain for all to see, and I have no problem calling them out...
